Among the extra wrestling stuff I watched this week was a recent episode of WWE Vintage Collection which featured Rowdy Roddy Piper. He and Gene Okerlund would chat about highlights from the Hot Rod's career, in between showing various matches (spanning a few decades), which would relate to the things they were talking about. An interesting thing about watching old wrestling matches on modern WWE programming is that when there's any choking going on, the video stops rolling and it will only show still images until the choking is finished. The audio is uninterrupted. What's most interesting about this is it makes you realize how common it used to be. During this particular episode of Vintage Collection, there was choking in EVERY match!
It was very cool to see those old Piper matches and promos, and he's going to return to the show next week, but I doubt they'd ever show this gem:
Just saw there's a new botchamania on youtube, gotta go!
