Hawk always comes off as a piece of shit in these stories and came across as a racist piece of shit here who got his ass whupped.

Scott Norton believing a young Hawk would have taken Scorp is cute. As if being juiced up sucker puncher makes you tough. Clearly all the best boxing champions of the time looked like Hawk.

Norton gets how over and special Inoki was, but Meltzer still thinks it was Flair who finally got that crowd of hostages to pop.

I had dinner with Hawk a few times. He was actually a nice enough guy, but when the drugs got a hold of him it wasn't pretty.

When I was around the ECW guys Scorp was known as a guy that could take care of himself and was a nice enough guy as well.

Street fights are different from shoot fights. By then Hawk was a shell of his former self. That's just the way it was.

The Grizzly Smith episode was well done, if you can stomach the material.

I do think they went overboard on the trial of Jo Lynn. It's fairly apparent that as horrible of a human being Grizzly Smith was, he didn't murder the girl or had anything to do with her death.

This was really the Dark Side of the Ring. There are no happy stories here and whatever one thinks of Jake Roberts or Sam Houston, their experiences forever shaped what they became.

DSOTR came back with The Flight From Hell. The film makers have really found their groove with telling these stories and understanding who to talk to and who to spotlight.

Yes, this was a terrible thing that happened. Although it's not really new with the allegations against Flair.

Tommy Dreamer came off poorly, but you couldn't decipher if he knew about all of the allegations against Flair and if he just saw Flair in his robe, naked, exposing himself and whirling his dick like a helicopter as the crowd cheered on.

Having talked to Dreamer on many occasions, he's not a bad guy at all, but he does have a laissez faire attitude about this kind of stuff like he did in ECW. But I get the feeling he didn't know about Flair cornering the stewardess (Boyd) and asking her to touch his dick. That's what gets misconstrued by the Twitter mob. Yes, exposing yourself to a person just trying ot do your job is bad and would constitute indecent exposure, but doing that and then cornering the woman and asking her to touch your dick constitutes a form of sexual assault and is worlds different.

And that's how Dreamer may have come to the conclusions that he did.

The only person that came off well was Boyd (the stewardess). She was quite remarkable and brave. Just an impressive human being that had to go thru this crap. In the world of fake superheroes, an outsider came in and ended up being the real deal.
