Great wrestling promos from outside wrestling


Recommended Posts

Parv bringing up Mamet through GGR makes me think about promotions as booked by other screenwriters...


Aaron Sorkin: A really intense version of early RoH/early EVOLVE. A babyface would be the first one to break the Code of Honor as political protest.

Neil LaBute: Creative peak ECW. No qualifications there.

Todd Haynes: Toned down JCP. Baby Doll becomes the promotion's biggest star.

Eli Roth: CZW at its most Lobo/Zandig-est. Trent Acid and Jimmy Rave as the wide-eyed babyface stars.

Not a promo per se, but I saw a quote today that was totally lifted from wrestlers criticizing fans/critics. Someone in this Chase Utley controversy came out & said that unless you were/are a middle infielder you have no right to second guess or criticize what was done there. So yeah, not just you never stepped on a baseball field, but you had to have played middle infield to comment on this play.

Look what these bastards have done to Wales. They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our homes and live in them for a fortnight every year. What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English – and that's who you are playing this afternoon.

Phil Bennett, Wales Rugby captain's motivational speech to his team before playing England - 1977


Imagine it with the heavily accented poetic lilting Welsh cadence. That's a money promo by Bennett. Dripping with emotion, steeped in fact, and delivered with purpose.
