Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 201


Some more wrestling memories as we cross into the 200s. Here, Shawn Michael looks very much the sorry guy as he executes his signature finisher, the ‘Sweet Chin Music’ on a beleaguered Ric Flair in a one-on-one match. Particularly bad considering the two were tight buddies.

For our 200th CG 2007-2011 article, Gifville brings you another wrestling GIF from WWE. Blackpool-born wrestler William Regal, along with locker room mates Cryme Time and former RAW general manager Theodore Long do a sort of tribal dance around long-suffering CEO Vincent McMahon.

In this classic GIF, based on a video clip from a WWE wrestling programme, The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) spears what appears to be Kevin Nash right through a safety barrier. A little reminder of the good old days of wrestling.

Rowdy Roddy Piper (1954-2015)


In memory of all-time great Canadian wrestler and presenter Roderick George “Roddy” Toombs, who was one of my favourite wrestlers on sports entertainment programme WWE. I always enjoyed his ‘Piper’s Pit’ segments that were relaunched by WWE a few years ago. A truly-missed legend.

He passed from a cardiac arrest at his home in Hollywood, CA, USA on the 30th July 2015.
