Don't want to shit up the indy thread with more talk of that (literal?) Onita/Tremont dumpster fire. So after Terra Callaway tried to claim yesterday that H2O had absolutely no idea that RF would be at the show (despite him being Onita's US agent and there being pictures of RF and Tremont chilling at the show) and that if they tried to get him to leave Onita would walk and ruin the show, Onita's US handler CHAINSAW TONY responded.
Apparently, RF was only there to help Mrs. Onita with the Japanese to US currency exchange rate and would've left if someone told him to. ALSO apparently, Onita got less than half of his money and Matt Tremont kept most of the gate money to keep from getting evicted from his wrestling school/apartment.
Once again, it's almost as if these death match wrestlers have poor judgment.
At any rate, I really hope Matt Tremont didn't refund Bix that $90.
I actually bought mine within the past few years because I want all of them for my collection. I don't know if I ever saw it on the shelves.You underestimate the number of parents that bought any LJN figure available on the shelf when Hogan wasn’t available. And the number of kids that wanted them all.
Hey. I predicted something else right. Go figure.tbh Onita looks pretty dang good for a 64 year old death match wrestler so I'm not even sure if this is the last time he dupes a promoter into flying him to the USA another time.
I'd like to know about that period of Savage's life from like '99 till '04 or whenever he left public life. It just seems very very odd that a control freak like Macho Man would become a libertine, getting hopped up on blow and MDMA (allegedly) and dating strippers. I suppose that's how mid life crises work sometimes.
I thought Bruno might have been in Legends of Wrestling II, but no dice.I was jokingly going to ask if Bruno made any video game appearances but he WAS in WWE 2k14. That was after he reconciled though.
It's hard to imagine anyone playing video games in 2013 wanting to play as Bruno Sammartino but maybe there were some old dads who pressured their kids into picking him. "C'mon! Billy! Bruno's way better than Ryback! He was champion for eight years!"
Weirdly/sadly, Macho Man's mom outlived him by a couple of years. Reading her obituary, she came up with the name "Macho Man" based on a Reader's Digest article on The Village People.You alluded to it but I do wonder how many stories about latter-day Savage are actually true. It's sad he's not here to refute them. The only people who kept in contact with him during this time were Gorgeous George and Lanny Poffo it looks like.
I think that was a deal with Yukes, not WWE. They wanted Savage, but WWE didn't, so they kind of went around them. But either way I was never more hyped for a game.I thought Savage had patched things up prior to his death. He did work on one of their video games. Maybe it wasn't a full blown makeup but as you said, if he hadn't, he was definitely close to doing so. I think that's how it went with Warrior to. He did work on one of the video games then was inducted into the HOF.
Ole Anderson supposedly gave him the "Savage" last name, at least according to Apter Mags kayfabe.Weirdly/sadly, Macho Man's mom outlived him by a couple of years. Reading her obituary, she came up with the name "Macho Man" based on a Reader's Digest article on The Village People.
That must be the only time someone actually took a suggestion based on something their parent read in Reader's Digest.
