WRESTLING ACCORDING TO THE MOVIES
Volume 3 - "The Godfather"
Quote No. 1
Jack Woltz: Johnny Fontane never gets that movie! That part is perfect for him, it'll make him a big star, and I'm gonna run him out of the business.
And Eric Bischoff could never have been part of the Alliance Invasion angle for the same reason. Yes, Bischoff could have lent credibility. Yes, the part was perfect for him. Yes, it would have made him a big star. But could he possible have ever gotten that part. NO. McMahon was intent on running him out of the business. Too bad for Bischoff that he wasn't in with the mafia. Unless you count the Gold Club.
Quote No. 2
Michael Corleone: That's my family, Kay. It's not me.
This is what Shane used to say when he went out a date back in his high school days. His girlfriends had to worry that Shane would follow in his father's footsteps. And just like Michael, Shane did indeed follow his father into the family business.
Quote No. 3
Sal Tessio: It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.
Too bad Mr. T didn't have Tessio around to explain the whole fish thing and how it related to his son Booker.
Quote No. 4
Don Vito Corleone: I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can be careless. But not men.
It would have been cool if McMahon would have used this classic line in his "I-whipped-the-Alliance-Ass" speech. I guess it only would have worked if Linda had been on the other side as well.
Quote No. 5
Moe Greene: Do you know who I am? I'm Moe Greene! I was making my bones while you were going out with cheerleaders!
The Undertaker still uses this one when he wants to make the "new" guys feel bad. "Do you know who I am? I'm the Undertaker! I was missing my soupbones while you were going out with cheerleaders."
Quote No. 6
Woltz: AAAAHHHHHH!!! AHHHAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAH!!!!
There is nothing scarier than finding a horse's head under the covers in your bed. Except maybe waking up and finding Buh Buh Ray Dudley under the covers in your bed. Or maybe Vince's ass on a big screen TV.
Quote No. 7
Solozzo: I'm a businessman, Tom. I don't like violence. Blood is a big expense.
So THAT'S why RVD has seen limited playing time lately!!
Quote No. 8
Bonasera: I believe in America. America has made my fortune.
Kurt Angle feels the same way.
Quote No. 9
Fabrizio: In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns.
Is Trish Stratus from Sicily then? Gees, I thought she was gonna accidentally kill Lita in their title match on RAW. Terrible. And she was doing so well lately.
Obligatory Most Famous Quote No. 10
Michael Corleone: I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.
How else do you think they got Ric Flair????
That's it for this week's Wrestling According to the Movies. Maybe I'll post another movie next week. Feel free to drop me a line or give me a shout-out over at the ez-board.
