    There's also been an issue recently with American voters with no knowledge of the region voting for Big Daddy for the lulz and hurting everyone else's percentages.

    I've had US voters reach me out to me privately who wanted me to convince them to vote Daddy, so it's more than "the lulz".

    As a Brit, while my interest in the Observer HOF has diminished greatly over the years, I'm always interested to see if anyone from the UK gets in and how they do on the ballot.  I've not been actively searching them out, but have now seen six ballots from voters voting in this region and Allan's is the only one to feature either Daddy or Pallo.  One person voted only from Rocco, the other four all voted Saint (and a couple of those had Billy Joyce on theirs too).

    I couldn't vote for anyone else really until either Pallo or Daddy got it. Rocco really doesn't have an actual HoF case, he's a level down in my eyes.

    If there wasn't a limit on numbers would you still be a yes on Kerry? I know you did some podcasts on it.

    I had him on the first draft of my ballot this year, then after more thought, felt he should go on the ballot with David and Kevin rather than as singularly.

    I don't. Wrestling is about execution.

    You don't think there's a huge difference of talent between a guy who's able to execute a script and a guy who's able to put his own match together or even call it in the ring ?

    There is but since we arent privy to the details of how matches are put together most of the time, I can only call what I see.

     

     

    Even if you know you're comparing Apples to Oranges if you're comparing a New Japan match vs. a WWE match based on one having no agent layout / input vs. one that you know does?

    Pitbull Johnson

     

     

    Well seeing that gimp being mentioned on here was unexpected.

     

    He bought some shows from Hammerlock when I was there in 1996. They were 'interesting' to say the least.

     

    Not least for him sitting taking money at the door, writing TICKITT in big letters on a lined pad, then tearing the pages off and handing them to the bemused punters. Not before trying to flog them promo pictures of himself standing in his garden, with a garden gnome and his neighbours looking over the fence in the background.

     

    He was from Sheerness, on the Isle of Sheppey, but couldn't pronounce the letter H, so ended up being from Seerness, on the Isle of Seppey. He also formed a very popular up and coming tag team with Alex Sane, called the Seppey Lads.

     

    He also advertised a ladder match as the main event of one show, then forgot to bring the ladder. Hammerlock MC Dean Ayass officially became my hero on that night, as he called Pitbull out to the ring before the main event. He thought Dean was going to thank him for all his efforts in promoting the show, etc. Dean then said "Now, ladies and gentlemen, as you know, we were supposed to have a ladder match for you here tonight. Unfortunately, we haven't got that match for you tonight....and here to explain why is Ian 'Pitbull' Johnson." Dean then handed him the microphone and watched him stand there like a deer caught in the headlights for about a minute, before he finally stammered "Errrr, forgot the ladder".

     

    He was also arrested whilst on the run from the law, when he promoted a wrestling show and put himself all over the posters. He couldn't work out how they'd found him!

     

    Memories :)

     

     

    I remember you telling me about this back in the day. :lol:


  7. I thought the show was solid and consistent throughout. It was better than I expected, and to be fair it had no hope of delivering what we got for WK11, however I felt some of the booking choices were odd.

     

    I guess I'll have to wait and see how they play out, but honestly, what a waste of Jay White if he wasn't going to go over Tanahashi.
