Wrestling

Do you watch wrestling?
Who is your favourite?John Cena?Triple H?The Miz?Undertaker?Kane? Or The Rock?(or any other,perhaps?)

I started watching wrestling when I was 8 . At that time,my father bought a CD (1991 Battle Royal in Royal Albert Hall,London), and together we watched it. That was my first time watching wrestling. I suddenly took a liking to British Bulldog (Davey Boy Smith), because of his strength, attitude, and not to mention his theme song appealed to me. He won the Battle Royal by eliminating Typhoon in 1991. That was the first time I saw him (on television).
British Bulldog
Davey Boy Smith (November 27, 1962 – May 18, 2002) was a British professional wrestler, better known as "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith, who was born in Golborne in North West England, United Kingdom. Smith is known for his appearances with Stampede Wrestling, the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling. Described by WWE as "one of the most physically impressive individuals in WWE history", Smith found success as both a singles and tag competitor, holding every major title in the organization except the WWF Championship.

Look at those muscular arms
Then,when I was 9, my father bought many wrestling's CD, such as from the club WWF and ECW. I like WWF better than ECW. I watched a match between The Rock and Triple H (Triple H at this time acted as a villain character and The Rock acted as the good one). I took a liking at The Rock, obviously because he was potrayed as the 'Good' character. At that time I didn't know that wrestling actually was an act. As a kid, for me, The Rock belonged to justice.

Formal attire
Ehem (cough)
Sorry I couldn't upload any pictures of The Rock during his match because if I do so the rating of this blog will be 18+.
Heck, why did I watch wrestling when I only 8 years old that time?

Aside from The Rock, I also like the big red machine, Kane.

Glenn Jacobs (Kane)

Glenn Thomas Jacobs (born April 26, 1967) is an American professional wrestler and actor better known by his ring name, Kane. He is signed to WWE, appearing on its SmackDown brand, but is currently inactive due to injury.
Jacobs began his wrestling career in 1992 working on independent circuits. He wrestled in Smoky Mountain Wrestling as Unabomb where he won the SMW Tag Team Championship as a member of The Dynamic Duo, and in the United States Wrestling Association where he won the USWA Heavyweight Championship as Doomsday. He later joined his current promotion, the World Wrestling Federation (which later became World Wrestling Entertainment in 2002) in 1995, where he wrestled under various gimmicks before debuting as his current character, Kane, in 1997. The character's half-brother is The Undertaker, with whom Kane has teamed up as the Brothers of Destruction. (source: wikipedia)

Kane rarely talks,he talks only if necessary. He doesn't brag in the ring (like other WWE superstars always done). He rarely lose the match.

Last but not least is the awesome rapper, John Cena.
Everybody loves him. Including me.

Cena is fan's favourite (including me). I think fans like him because he is potrayed as the nice guy in WWE. Cena rarely (almost never,except when his opponents cheated) lose in the match. He even won against Rey Mysterio (poor Rey,he held that title only for a short short time).Besides, Cena is also a fan of Japanese animation and has mentioned that his favorite animated movie is Fist of the North Star.

I also like woman wrestler.
Here are my favourite woman wrestlers:
Kelly Kelly
Melina Perez
Mickie James
Phew, believe me,it's hard to find a decent images of those three beauties.(I'm sure you know why)

That's all for now.
Thanks for reading.
Have a blessed day~^^
