A NOSTALGIC ONE AGAIN......
A chat with my friend today....and this facebook quiz......brought back loads of fond memories..:).....
THOSE DAYS WERE LOVELY !!!
Killing free time ...did not => chatting, orkutting, twittering, facebooking, youtubing
it implied socializing face-to-face...and spending quality time..with friends...REALly...as opposed to virtually....
Of course...every single person of my generation, I am sure, would've seen at least one WWF match on TV.....
They say Ignorance is bliss....It's true :)
As innocent ignorant kids, who did not know that the whole thing was a set-up, the sheer charisma and agility with which the wrestlers went about their wrestling brought immense delight and amusement!!
I used to love watching the matches of Bret "the hit man" Hart...I used to be completely in awe of his trait of gifting his sunglasses to one of the spectators...I even used to think "how i wish he put it on my eyes someday!!!" :D....
And of course....I loved, love and will always love...the Undertaker !! He's my all-time favorite!!
His style SIMPLY cannot be matched by any one else !!!
The Hat ...the long curly scary hair covering the face....then the hair suddenly going up...and the eyes with the eye balls gone somewhere...n the tongue sticking out...the gloves.....the jar of ashes.....the french beard/ the goat beard..
the chokeslam, tombstone, the walk on the rope and the jump, the boot to the face, the sudden wake up....after being brought down......
Every bit of him amazed me, amazes me...and will continue to amaze me :)
I was lucky enough to witness him, Bret Hart and other wrestlers like Yokozuna, Doink, Diesel, Goldust, HHH, Tatanka etc etc...live...in Bangalore...when i was in my 4th or 5th grade....It took place at the football stadium on Mcgrath Road...
It was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME !!!!!!!!!! .....Especially when ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE LIGHTS WENT OFF....AND WE COULD HEAR THE SOUND OF THE FUNERAL BELL.....THE SOUND OF DEATH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE BELL OF HELL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
The crowd went ballistic ....There was hysteria !!!!!!!! .
People SCREEEEEEEAMMMMMMMMMED at the top of their voices!!
I was no less...:D.....I still remember how excited myself and other kids of my age group then ....were !!!!!!!!
I am sure it was the LOUDEST reception The Undertaker would've got in his entire life !!!!!!!!
..it was as if Sachin Tendulkar had just hit the longest six in cricket history !!!!
Anyway...coming back to the point......watching WWF was one of the best ways to spend free time...as a kid.......
playing WWF trump cards was one ..too :)...
I am sure every kid of my generation would've pestered his parents to buy him a pack of WWF trump cards :).....
It still amazes me - how much joy ..playing a pack of trump cards brought to us !!!! :)...
Train journeys.....Rainy days where no outdoor sport was possible.....or HOT afternoons were it would be impossible to step out of the house.......SUCH things automatically => WWF trump cards!!! :)....
Immediately, it would start off :D...
Chest 50 clash!!!!!!!! Biceps 21 clash !!!!!!!! :D....
the word "clash" would be used ...to determine who would play next...in case there was a tie ..:)....
Since Chest 50" and Biceps 21" applied to many wrestlers, they always used to be accompanied by a "clash"!! :)
Sometimes, we would mix two packs of the same trump cards...and even have a
Rank 1 clash!!!! :D....that was the heights of thrill and amusement!!!!!! :)
Anyway...I remember quite a few of the measures...in the pack of cards which I had...:)...i do not remember the fights fought and fights won column...:).....
Rank 1 - Hulk Hogan.....Weight 303 pounds...Chest 48" Biceps 20" ...Height...6'3"
Rank 2 - The Undertaker :)...Weight 328 pounds..Chest 47"..Biceps 20"..Height...7'1" :)
Rank 3 - Bret Hart :)....Weight 248 pounds...Chest 46"..Biceps 20"....Height 6'3"
i do not remember the ranks and measures of others :).....but there were many CHARACTERS :)..which I am SURE...every1 who has played trump cards...will SURELY REMEMBER !! :)
Andre the Giant - Height 7'2"...Weight 520 pounds :D
King Kong Bundy - Height 6'11"....Weight 520 pounds :D
Giant Gonzalves - Height 7'11" :)
Yokozuna ..(was an icon)....- Height 6'5" Weight - 430 pounds :)
