Awesome Totally Awesome - Class of Seventy-Four

The 10 Presents: Wrestling’s Doper

By: Winston Brown, Chief Research and Development Engineer for CLASS of Seventy-Four.

Class of Seventy Four loves wrestling…end quote. Despite the negative stigmatism attached to grown men watching a sport some have called a “soap opera”, it still is probably the one thing in our creative process that excites us. That and music. Since music was last week, we will cover wrestling thoughts and questions this week.

1. Ric Flair is the greatest wrestler who ever lived. Don’t debate it.

2. I think a legit build up with Roman Reigns and John Cena with them ending it at Mania would be one of the most amazing things for both their career’s. It would also be the best way to give the people the great heel turn they’ve been clamoring for.

3. I was supposed to go to Wrestlemania 3 when it came to the Silverdome in Pontiac. But, I blew it. I think I did something stupid in school and got in trouble. One of my greatest regrets.

4. The “Million Dollar Belt” should have been a real thing. I feel like it could still be a thing today. You could have the Miz as the “Million Dollar Champion.”  He could give it the push it needs to be legit. Would have also been a better way to use Miztourage.

5. As genius as Vince McMahon has been not just for WWE, but wrestling period, I am really looking forward to what the product will look like when Hunter takes over full time. I think he’s gonna do some things that are going to take wrestling to a totally different level. He’s that dope.

6. I wish Andre the Giant would have been alive during Big Showa initial run with the WWF. I think a father-son moment would have been amazing.

7. I wonder if the Rock and Stone Cold at their peak would have been as over in the eighties as they were in the nineties?  Prime Stone Cold vs prime Hogan? I’d watch that.

8. With the current WWE product being what it is, do you think it’s better to stay in NXT , or come up to one of the main shows and not be used correctly?

9. I wish there was someone like Ted Turner now that was a billionaire that would buy IMPACT wrestling, Ring of Honor and New Japan. He would combine them, put a ton of money into them and go toe-to-toe with Vince Mcmahon. A modern-day “Monday Night War.”

10. I hate to admit it, but I think it’s time for the New Day to split. I got an idea on how to do it, but it would take to long and the split needs to happen at this next pay-per-view. It sucks because those guys are all good as individuals, but they were amazing as a team. I don’t know how good they’ll be on their own after the impending feud takes place. Fingers crossed…

SOMETHING PROFOUND

/
It's the reason why people sit through funerals, attend weddings, wait expectantly outside delivery rooms—that unnamable presence that accompanies death and birth and the consummation of love. They're all hoping for a glimpse at the infinite. They're all looking for something profound.

I should open with the following statement: I know nothing about high fashion. But I do know the difference between something aesthetically pleasing tickling my photoreceptors from an outfit that makes me think “What’s going on here?!”

Phil Kessel beat cancer during his rookie season and went on to become a five time thirty goal scorer and two time Stanley Cup Champion on his own terms.  In spite of being one of the most prolific goal scorers of his generation, Phil has been oft maligned, bullied, and minimized by the press, the fans, the NHL, and even his peers.

My Love/Hate Relationship With #Supreme - Photoshoot with @ymanibarbee @adore.eu and Essay

/
Like it or not, Supreme will always be the litmus for streetwear.  For old streetwear heads like me, there continues to be a love / hate relationship with Supreme.  About a year ago, I was driving home from work and one of the neighbor kids (usually dressed head to toe in Pac Sun or even worse, Dallas Cowboys gear), cruised by me, riding a Razor scooter, with a mohawk helmet, wearing a Supreme box logo hoodie.  I lost concentration and almost drove my car into the kids playing basketball in the driveway a few houses up.
