Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Memetic Mutation: When evaluating Van Hammer once upon a car trip, Page once (honestly) said "he's got the look, the rap, the size; I SMELL MONEY!" The problem being that Van Hammer was awful. The other wrestlers knew it, the fans knew it, and reasonably soon, Van Hammer's career was mired in obscuritynote Apart from his Falls Count Anywhere match against Cactus Jack at WCW Clash of the Champions 18, he never really had a match worth watching. However, news of this appraisal filtered back to Scott Hall and Kevin Nash who began using the line regularly on WCW's on line after-show called "WCW Live" with Mark Madden. To this day, Madden and Nash still use the line on a regular basis, and some smarks use the line when evaluating some new on-air wrestling talent who they think to be overrated and assume will be out of a job in short order.
Older Than They Think: A cutter that can come out of nowhere, be used at pretty any time, and will instantly end a fight? Randy Orton might be the one younger wrestling fans think of, but DDP was the first to do so in North America.
And the RKO/Diamond Cutter was originally called the "Ace Crusher" as it was developed in Japan by the wrestler Johnny Ace, known to current WWE fans all over the world as Mr. John Laurinaitis, Former Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and General Manager of Both Raw And Smackdown.
Tearjerker: His tribute to his friend and fellow wrestler Chris Kanyon, who committed suicide in 2010 due to pressure from being gay and bipolar. Page reminisces on their relationship and by the end of the video is visibly choking up as he says his last goodbyes to Kanyon and tells him, "God bless ya, because I'm sure that wherever you are, man, that you're happier than when you were here."
His tribute to Randy Savage is pretty heartbreaking as well.
