An Old FCW Program

Post by Bob-O » Oct 16th, '18, 07:10

A neat bit of modern day nostalgia here.





I know I forgot...

-Fandango and Johnny Curtis were the same person.
-Sheamus had a last name.
-Ryback had hair.
-Brian Cage worked for WWE???
-I knew Colt Cabana did, but it's still surreal to see him in this book.
-How much I appreciate what they've done with women's wrestling.

JOHNNY PRIME, LOL! Also, Slater's hair. Also, if anyone knows who this Jenny Cash woman is, please tell her she is now my new mortal enemy. "Glitter" is not a color (with that Dylan Kline guys his answer is at least clearly in gimmick).
Also, I was greatly disappointed at the lack of Beverly Mullins to go with Alex Riley.

And yeah. I have to echo Bob-O's sentiments about the women.

Haha! Right!?

I looked through that and shuddered at the thought of any of them being in the ring together. I'm not trying to reignite the Great Alicia Fox Debate of 2018©, but I actually thought to myself "Well... at least they've got Alicia Fox!". Then I thought about the gravity of that statement. Try saying it out loud.

To be fair, I remember when Tiffany was GM of ECW, and she wasn't terrible.

I don't remember Tiffany being too bad in the ring, either, even before her TNA run. She just tried to do holds in matches that were only given three minutes, so her matches were boring. Even Fox definitely felt like she had something back in 2010 when they put the belt on her (being the only woman doing a high-flying move was probably a big part of that). I think her in-ring abilities have gone pretty much straight downhill since then.

I also remember greatly enjoying Angela Fong's matches in FCW to the point where I marked out when she popped up as a character on Lucha Underground years later (although that has sadly gone nowhere).

It's a tragedy that Sweet Papi Sanchez never made it, and I had totally forgotten Wes Briscoe existed at all

That's okay. As RVD would say, that "doesn't make you a bad person; it just makes you like everyone else."
