Resident Stunt Granny whipping boy Hardcore Holly has just been released (according to wwe.com and proofthereisagod.com). I’m not going to lie. I am ecstatic. This is one of the best days of my life.
I don’t know what I hate most about ol’ Hardcore. The fact that he takes out his shortcomings on young wrestlers who have a legitimate chance of the stardom he could never achieve? The fact that he milked the same gimmick for over ten years without putting one ounce of actual inspiration or innovation into his work? The fact that he reminded me of the Soup Nazi in every negative way possible?
It doesn’t even matter now. What matters is that he’s gone. He can go run his jokester wrestling school and have no idea what the score is on his own dime now. I love it.
Precious and none are the moments we two have shared. – Dusty
