Wrestling, Mr Wrestling, Jim Blanchard discussed on The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast


You bring up the the belly to belly. Because i i guess shane. Douglas used a few years ago. But it was like a standing belly to belly. I never understood why no one did the the weapon the ropes and then the belly to belly like you did that. Seemed like a like a move that you could do out of. It seemed to have all of the the criteria. You want an exciting finish. It can come out of nowhere can be decisive. I is that move particularly difficult when it's whip off the road because it doesn't seem like a lotta people picked it up After your career. I mean to me it was very natural thing to do And and i actually did it to somebody in the ring when i was a rookie breaking in and and I had a guy. It was reading her that i was and really know what he was doing. It the rank. And i got so frustrated with him. That could get him to do anything. I just grabbed him and him but like right out of his boots and i realized that i have That's where straight chatter world by lower back fully ability about wrestling mat. Grabbed this game here ability to do that. Move to anybody whether they wanted to go. Didn't want to go didn't matter. I could do it. So i got a put that in on your future use that prevents because basically you're finished you've gotta be an excuse anybody at anytime anywhere and that was something. I can do anybody whether they were. You know two hundred thousand three hundred fifty pounds. I could still doing so for me. It was just came back. So i I remember one. Time does not We were also america's team we. I finally brothers or something. Three them both in the road. So we get a double donnie to belly off the road. So dusty never done the boards life and you know what the big deal he just you know he did it so i think it's that hard. I think it's just a matter. Your guys minds not exciting enough. They're always take something. Yeah they don't think somebody seen before or something that next level of exciting so they've reason overlooked now Speaking of i want to touch on the the knee. Lift of mr wrestling number two. I think i just got done. Rereading jim duggan's book re talks about the worst thing about wasn't the knee with mr wrestling. Too it was that slap on the back that stung. Yeah because that was the sound effect you make it. Hit you to with with the smack and make it sound like that day. Was it you that hard at the chest. And that's where the the power was covered from. So absolutely gotta remember I mean.
