Wrestling News and Gossip / Re: WWE Hall of Fame 2017 discussion

Diamond Dallas Page, a world champion-turned-fitness guru, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2017 during WrestleMania 33 Week. The news was first reported by ****************.

DDP’s journey to the Hall is an unlikely one, to say the least. The Jersey Shore native broke into sports-entertainment in his 30s, starting out as a manager in Verne Gagne’s AWA while still working as a nightclub manager in Florida. Page took his flashy aesthetic from the clubs, coming to the ring clad in leather, studs and diamond-encrusted jewelry, and accompanied by beautiful bombshells he called “Diamond Dolls” on each arm. He backed up his brash look with trash talk on the microphone and cunning intellect in the corner. DDP led Badd Company to the AWA Tag Team Championship before heading to WCW.

Page took charge of the Fabulous Freebirds as Michael “P.S.” Hayes and Jimmy “Jam” Garvin turned from southern rebels to glam rock megastars, leading them to the WCW Tag Team Titles. DDP also guided the early careers of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Raven before stepping into the ring himself on a full-time basis in 1991. As a 35-year-old rookie, Page’s chances of success seemed slim, but his unmatched work ethic and determination to succeed would pay off in the long run.

Though he found moderate success as a villain in WCW, capturing the company’s Television Championship, he broke out on a worldwide scale after turning down membership in the nWo. DDP found himself an unlikely man of the people, but embraced the love of fans around the world, who continued to be amazed by the seemingly infinite ways Page found to catch his opponents out of nowhere with his signature move, the Diamond Cutter.

DDP skyrocketed into stardom through his rivalry with the nWo and one of its top members, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, taking part in a thrilling series of matches throughout 1997. Page soon became one of WCW’s top heroes, and the man that celebrities like Basketball Hall of Famer Karl Malone and late night television icon Jay Leno wanted to team with when they stepped through the ropes.

Years of hard work finally paid off for DDP at Spring Stampede 1999, when he defeated a trio of wrestling legends – Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Sting – to capture his first WCW World Championship. Page went on to capture the title on two more occasions before WCW was purchased by WWE in 2001. During his career in WWE, Page tried to show the WWE Universe and some of the squared circle’s most sour Superstars what a positive attitude could do for them. His efforts resulted in a reign as WWE European Champion, which he successfully defended on The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania.

Yet for all his accomplishments inside the ring, DDP is also a Hall of Fame human being. After stepping away from the squared circle, he dedicated his life toward helping people take control of theirs. He developed DDP Yoga, a fitness program based around the exercises that helped him stay in the ring game for so long. Page also used DDP Yoga to pay back two of his friends and mentors – WWE Hall of Famers Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Razor Ramon – by having the two legends move into his home and work toward getting back into shape.

It is for his accomplishments in and out of the ring that Diamond Dallas Page is more than deserving of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, taking place on Friday, March 31, at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., are available now. Visit **************** for complete information on how you can see Diamond Dallas Page take his place in sports-entertainment history.

And in the usual "legends no longer with us" category, Kurt Cobain would have been 50 today, which seems worthy of mention.

You no doubt remember Scarlett Byrne as Draco Malfoy's Slytherin schoolmate Pansy Parkinson in the final three Harry Potter movies.

Problem - I've seen exactly none of them, so...

Both you and Sex kitten are missing out. They really are delightful, faithful to the books, and tell a truly decent story, unlike a lot of the young adult lit-based movies that have tried to jump on it's bandwagon with varying degrees of success.
And the girls are seriously hot if one is into jailbait or even if you're not since they age up well in the later movies.

Then she'll just graduate to the All Grown Up thread.  It's all good.

Hmmm. Not having read the books, just seen the movies, the appeal of Harry Potter to me had less to do with the fantasy/supernatural/mythic elements than the British public school (though we in the USA would call it "private school") setting: the uniforms, the stern masters, the rivalry between 'houses', expressed mostly though games (though at Hogwarts it's quidditch, not soccer, rugby, or cricket). More than any fantasy stories, to me it's antecedents felt like "Tom Brown's School Days" or even "Goodbye, Mr. Chips," just with magic added.

It was a lot like the appeal that "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" had for me. To me, BtVS was the best show ever about American high school (and later college) life, just with demons, vampires and monsters added. Of course, that got lost in the last season or two, just as the Hogwarts setting got lost in the last two Potter movies, but by then I was invested enough in the characters that it didn't really bother me.

That's why Harry Potter wouldn't have worked in BtVS's setting. Both are about far more than the fantasy/supernatural elements. I remember being appalled at reading much later that when Steven Spielberg was asked about making the Potter movies, he suggested casting Haley Joel Osment as Harry and Americanizing the whole thing i.e. resetting it at an American high school. Disaster avoided!

Well, with a week off work next week I might sit down and write some short stories.  Nothing fancy, just maybe 10 paragraphs or so long, fuck the fancy plots etc just get straight to the hard fucking.

Got to give yet more love to Teilor Grubbs, from Hawaii Five-0.  Every time I see her, she seems to be even hotter than the last time.  Alas, in 8 months time she won't be eligible for this thread any more :(

I guess your points are valid, but you better stay far far away from Star Wars, or pretty much anything else, if you don't want to bother with anything that was heavily influenced by something else.

I know I'm in the minority here, but no ones ever going to agree on everything. My points are as valid as anyone. If you like something, more power to you.
