“Nothing Means Nothing”

I was born in ’83, and grew up watching the tail end of Stampede Wrestling; shortly before Vinny Mac swept in and nationalized all the regional wrestling promoters. Above is a vestige of the (rampant) cocaine-steroid era of the WWF, in the form of the classic wrestling promo from the Macho Man. A few choice quotes:

“I am the cream in the World Wrestling Federation!”

“I now am living in a nightmare, and I am the cream!”

“On balance, off balance, doesn’t matter. I’m better than you!”

Absurdist stream-of-conscious ruminations from a man (clearly) jacked up on all sorts of chemicals. It’s sad and beautiful at the same time.
