May 27, 1996 is a day that will live in wrestling infamy. It’s the day Scott Hall, known by fans at the time as Razor Ramon, showed up on WCW Nitro. It was significant because Hall had been with WWF for four years and showing up on the competition’s program and declaring war with them made it look like WWF had sent him.
We’d later learn this was the seed planting fo the nWo and one of the greatest angles in the history of wrestling. My co-host Chad Smart and I dissect the period leading up to Hall’s jump and do some ‘what if’ scenarios along the way.

Tis the season for drinking, so Chad Smart (host of Positive Cynicism) and I busted open 4 Elf Winter Warmer Spiced Ale by Dark Horse Brewery. While enjoying this festive beer we chat about Christmas gimmicks, movies and angles related to the world of pro wrestling.
One story we share is the Ultimate Warrior Christmas comic. You can check it out hereand decide for yourself if Warrior “humbled” Santa Claus…
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. What happens when it is a little moving picture that loops endlessly?
Regardless of if you pronounce it like Jif peanut butter or GIF like the G in “Greg,” these user created animations are running rampant on the Internet. Now I got to this post topic from a conversation I had with my good buddy Jared. We talked probably 20 minutes it was nothing but wrestling GIFs. It started with Ric Flair and ended with the Undertaker and saw three decades worth of some of wrestling’s lighter moments in between.
But there are GIFs for all occasions. For example:
I love using GIFs in social media for reactions. Be it a well placed animal smirk, a baby’s laughter, or Shawn Michaels walking down the ramp, crotch-chopping as he goes. GIFs have permeated every avenue of pop culture. There’s nothing that hasn’t been turned into a GIF. Movies, television, animation, sports…really anything you could imagine.
So when you are having a conversation with someone and they respond with a GIF, just know that they probably took at least a little bit of time finding just the right reaction to send you.
By the way, if you want to know exactly how tonight’s post came to be, while discussing it with Jared, he sent the following GIF.
I’m 34 and still susceptible to peer pressure. Life is great!
