Are you mixing up The Rockers and Midnight Express? I think there was a Midnight Express. There was also a Rock n Roll Express and an Oriental Express. And a New Rockers. If I could forget all the trivial crap I know about pro-wrestling, I'd have more room in my head for trivial MMA crap.

Midnight Express was "Lover Boy" Dennis Condrey and "beautiful" Bobby Eaton-managed by Jim Cornette. Sadly I wanted to be a pro wrestler till Vince Mcmahon admitted it was " planned out and for entertainment purposes only" to congress. I have a valid excuse. My big brother( the organization for fatherless kids I.E -me) had a real-life bro who was a pro westler( Buzz Tyler) who swore to me it was real, and only pre-lim matches were faked. I think they just didn't want to ruin it for me. We all know what the road to hell is paved with, sadly I was crushed and despise pro wrestling to this day for it. I couldn't tell you who is currently a Pro wrestler except for the Rock and Steve Austin(who wrestled back when I watched it) , and I only know them because everybody wore thier T-Shirt's a few years back.

Wow, good memory!

I wrestled locally for shit money and was going to attend Killer Kowalskis school, but after reading Mick Foleys book, decided not to get into it. Oddly enough I got more hurt pro-wrestling than I ever have fighting MMA. Then again you don't have three people beating you with chains in MMA, so I guess its not that odd after all.

You know even though I didn't watch wrestling at the time I read Mick Foley's ( Always Catus Jack to me) book and was surprised how well it was written. Very funny and answered a lot of questions that had lingered in my head from that childhood dream. I think you were smart to avoid it. MMA will push it farther and farther back for a while. Until I read the book I didn't realize these guys were taking bumps 300 days a year, that would wear down anyone. Even an active Top level MMA fighter rarely fight's more than 4 times a year. Also, since most are only in serious training for 6 weeks before, that's a lot less injuries.

I agree with most listed, but wanted to chime in with King of the Hill (watch it while it's still on) and The Soup, which is on tonight at 10:00 (Eastern).
