I have no idea what you are talking about.
Remember Saturday afternoons watching World of Sport?
Nope...

I can; on those very rare occasions my father wasn't working on a Saturday in the brickyards catching up with maintenance work, he'd watch the wrestling on World of Sport.

However, apart from Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks, I can't remember a single name of any of the participants.

Back off-topic for a moment...

Retiring for a swift-half after the soundcheck, the drummer and I met Jim Breaks in a pub in Keighley. Drummer got leathered. Show was worse than usual.

I've always had a very severe allergic reaction to wrestling.
Opera for rednecks.

Although after a few beers once upon a time, I had a fairly heated argument with a film student that House Of Flying Daggers and the like aren't objectively better than a WWE pay-per-view, and that's done live, and it was only bullshit cultural snobbery that kept him from saying so. I was being a wanker, but not that much.

According to Fenton, the usual suspects are screaming "BBC Bias" about last night.
Poor lambs. They must have been doing a line in the khazi when the Tory Ewok was on.

Plaid Cymru have promised to reopen my local railway line. Here are the populations of the places the reopened stations would serve.

Aberdulais 2,400
Resolven 2,300
Glynneath 4,278
Hirwaun 4,900

They're also proposing to reopen a railway in the next door valley, where even fewer people live.

Does this sound like a sensible proposition to anyone? What difference will those railways make anyway? If having good railway connections made towns prosperous, then Neath and Port Talbot would be well-off.

Nonetheless, I'm probably going to vote for Plaid Cymru because I'm so despairing of Labour. I suppose I'm in a fairly fortunate position to have two Remain parties in the first two places in my constituency.

You don't remember Kid Chocolate?

He was black.

I suspect few here would. Mattomac might - I remember him saying that he took his username from a former WWE wrestler.

If it helps, if you've watched occasional Hollywood films over the last few years you may be familiar with the actor Dwyane Johnson, whom prior to finding big screen fame wrestled in the WWE/WWF as "The Rock".

That makes as much sense as reopening the March to Spalding line or better still, the Wisbech and Upwell Tramway.
