I mean.. ick was a gr8 hit with kids..without being tagged as PG..he was hardcore...raw n yet inspired kids...
in those days..we used to have Raw on Thursday..n Nitro on saturday..so i never had the same excitement u ppl had in US>.
I still remember..at that time was 12 and half or so..n it was a shock n surprise that Mick won the champ..in those days..I donno how to browse..so no spoilers...I watched it n got surprised n literally danced on his victory...
That is the gr8est Raw even in my book..
Riveting write. This really stuck with me... it's becoming more of a common theme for people to be the odd man out, the outsider looking in, being like Sisyphus of Greek myth - doomed to have that we want just barely out of our reach forever. And then to have a Mankind story like that - just awesome. You raise another point - there aren't many matches like that anymore. Sure, we get something to amuse us or make us laugh or entertain us... but how often have we had matches that really inspire us? Matches that we watch and think "God D***, I will never forget this for as long as I live?"
Thanks for the post. I didn't read it, but the title was good.
I am going to watch the show. I found above mentioned RAW here:
Sob story? Its not a sob story by all means, I was trying to prove a point where the best times in wrestling was when certain storylines related to real life situations. If you feel like this is a "sob story" then thats you. We are all entitled to our opinion
I almost shed a tear reading your sob story.
I was 15 when it happened and truth be told, I had the same emotions about it that you did for being 8. I was never one to have many friends growing up, I was the loner as well. Hell, at 15 I was still playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game lol. I definitely resonate with this blog, great job. (Althought I don't agree that it was literally the best RAW, I will say that its one of the best RAW moments.)
