Heyman : Space Mountain Oughta Be Closed For Repairs

Posted in Professional Wrestling at 4:13 pm by

The former Paul E. Dangerously writes, “it’s sad to see Ric Flair advertised for some low rent wrestling shows at this stage of his life.”  As opposed, to say, the not-quite-in-his-prime Terry Funk headlining ECW’s first PPV card (and bleeding on your humble editor as the credits rolled).

Heyman tells the The Sun’s readers “if you check with the producers and vendors and promotions, you’ll see I’ve turned down numerous conventions, autograph signings, guest appearances, booker deals, shoot tapes, you name it.”  Admirable stuff, and I’m sure Paul has left at least three figures on the table as a result.   “Is this how you want to see Flair nowadays? Isn’t just a little uncomfortable?” asks Heyman, and while the clip undoubtedly lacks what Don Cornelius might call production value, if the Nature Boy did manage to retire gracefully, he’d be one of the few guys to have done so.

    When I was we were young, Saturday would not BEGIN until “Soul Train” came around the air! I don’t know what personal hell drove that you take your own personal life, Brother Don, but are aware that you were–and always will be–loved and revered in my house FOREVER! Love, Peace, and SOUL!

    There’s this black guy that’s ALWAYS in the crowd at Rockefeller Plaza during the Today show. I switch it on and the kids i always yell “SuperFly!!!!” if we spot him. I talk about him as Don Cornelius.
