Posted 14 September 2005 - 12:55 AM
Deviation, disbelief, dependence ... WEAKNESS!!!
Frustration becomes aggression ... Nihilistic burst abort the world ...
What of the deeds of self esteem?
What of self determination?
Institutionalism, demagoguery, by power elite gods of policy ...
Hell yeah, I be interviewin' the comedy superstars!

There are three men of note in sports who are named Dave Shultz, which is where the confusion takes place:
1) Hockey Player. Legendary enforcer of the Philadelphia Flyers' Broad St. Bullies.
2) Amateur Wrestler. 1984 Freestyle Gold medalist. Subsequently became an assistant wrestling coach at Oklahoma, Stanford and Wisconsin. Shot and killed by the sponsor of his wrestling club, John DuPont in 1996 while in training for another Olympic bid. DuPont was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
As far as Kurt Angle is concerned, Angle gave the following response to FoxSports in reference to David Shultz #2:
Kurt Angle: It was both really. Dave was really important to my training because he was my coach. And although he was trying out for the Olympic Games, and I honestly believe he would have made the team and would have won a medal, he was my coach. He was my mentor, the guy that I looked up to and the guy I needed to go that extra yard for . When David died, part of me died because I didn’t really know where I was going to go to seek help. For about two weeks I didn’t do much of anything. But then I thought that David would want me to pursue my dream and achieve my goals. So, I went to Greg Strobel of USA Wrestling and also Dan Gable from the University of Iowa, and I started training with those guys as much as I could. I kind of used Dave for inspiration because he always told me that you never want to go into something unprepared. You always want to be prepared as possible so that you have no regrets.
3) Professional Wrester. Wrestled mainly in Canada, Minneapolis and New York. Best known for incident involving 20/20 reporter John Stossel.

I'm not ranking this particularly high either, but Schultz I think does an excellent job in a "screw the title, I want you dead" role. What could have been if he hadn't smacked Stossel around.

Kind of strange how Dave Shultz was this good friend of Hogan's and yet after the John Stossel thing he dropped from site. Surely he could have had a run in the AWA or NWA given that he was so famous from that incident. I understand he became a bounty hunter post wrestling.

I found Schultz's offense to be slow and plodding and Hogan's to be sloppy. Hogan's selling was generally kind of lethargic. And Schultz's late match comeback, only to be pinned via a clothesline, didn't make sense to me.
I'm only two matches in, but I'd be shocked if this ranked higher than 90 or 91 on my final list.

Agreed. Dr. D looks, and other than the top rope elbows, wrestles like Sid. His chair-shot on Hogan was embarrassing, even for mid 1980's WWF standards. Compare that to how much more devestating Sheik makes a *padded* chair shot look in the Boot Camp match.
I'm thinking the clipping took out Dr. D's offensive parts which could've made it better than what was there, but this is almost as bad as the 10,000 person Survivor Series matches or a few of the other head-scratching choices.

If you die first, I am definitely going to eat you, but the question is, if I die, what are you going to do? Bon appétit... Eat or die.
