Welcome to Nerdo’s newest series. Fortunately for us, it is not going to be very reliant on words. The title is pretty clear, right? Each issue will shine a little spotlight down on a huge crowd reaction from wrestling.
In the world of Professional Wrestling, what I’m talking about is called a “pop.” As in, the crowd popped huge when Stone Cold’s music hit (a sentence that was most likely uttered a number of times during The Attitude Era).
Since I brought up Stone Cold, allow me to be clear on something – this will not be limited to the WWE. This will be all expansive. It doesn’t matter the promotion, or the moment, as long as it’s truly hair-raising, and/or goosebumps inducing.
With that said, we are starting with the WWE (as you can see from the featured image). It’s not my fault, though. This was an incredible moment. For years, Dolph Ziggler slowly picked up a very loyal fan base, all of whom were impressed by his ring work, and as such, they wanted to see him win the big one.
They wanted either the WWE Championship around his waist, or that big gold sucker, the World Heavyweight Championship. Well, on April 8th, 2013, they got their wish. It was Monday Night Raw. Alberto Del Rio, the World Heavyweight Champion at the time, had just wrestled a full, and grueling match.
Then this happened…
Run your left hand, up your right arm. Is your hair raised? Do you have bumps, of the goose variety?
Once your done with that, hit the comment section. You can tell us your memories of Ziggler’s cash-in, or even suggest some of your favorite huge crowd reactions in wrestling. Y2J beating Triple H for the title is definitely going to be a future pick of mine.
That’s one of my favorite moments ever.
THIS SERIES OF ARTICLES IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY MARK OUT ENTERTAINMENT
We here at Nerdopotamus are thrilled to have joined forces with Mark Out, and its owner Anthony Iovino.
Our goal is to present you all with more quality wrestling-based content. That’s why our first venture together will be the Nerd/Out Top 100 Wrestlers of the Year. We have formed a committee. The selection process has begun. The qualifying period is from WrestleMania 31 to WrestleMania 32.
That doesn’t mean it will be limited to WWE, to be clear. The performer’s promotion matters as much as their gender, which is not all. The only thing that matters is their ability as a professional wrestler.
Numbers 100-91 will be published on April 4th, 2016. From that point on, we’ll drop another ten numbers every day, until we are finished on the 13th.
We hope you all join us!
