The Franchise!

The Maxx is never to good to ask for help...and now is one of those times.

 

I was wondering if anyone knew the music that "The Franchise" Shane Douglas used when he wrestled in ECW?

 

This would be a great help to me as I seem to know absoultly everything there is to know about wrestling except this one thing!

 

But of course I could be wrong! :devil

 

Thanxx! :D

yeah and it rules. I have a couple of Deep Purple albums that have it on them. Very cool song although it doesn't sound quite the same when you listen to it and the Franchise isn't make his way to a wrestling ring.

 

He did also use Simply the Best in ECW as well, but that was early on, and of course, it sucks, so I'm guessing it's the Deep Purple one you're talking about.

yeah very very similar. Which to be honest wasn't a bad thing. Obviously they couldn't get the same music, or couldn't be bothered to pay for it, so they just ripped it off. Douglas without that music always sounded a bit wrong for me so it was cool to hear basically the same thing without the vocals.

Can't help but shed a single tear for the passing of one Dean Douglas when I see this thread. Apologies to anyone who doesn't get this, but most of the forum regulars from the past will understand.

 

No, I'm not trying to leave anyone out, just making a post is all.

I blame Razor Ramon and HBK for that, Douglas could have at least been a solid IC title level kinda guy in the WWF...

 

Then to take the piss and steal his ECW gimmick (HHH I'm looking at you) later on also sucked... Plus you know HBK originally called D-X the Triple Threat? That would have been going way too far....

lmao, excellent, couldn't help but chuckle when evil gringo didn't get the point.

 

but, what gringo says about douglas is absolutely right, huge talent and still one of the best talkers in the business. just watch his interview bits in TNA right now and you'll see someone who knows the business inside out and has everything mic wise down to a tee, facial expression, tone, use of words, the whole package, he's awesome.
