Maybe it's because I was a Hogan mark back in the day, but I can't tell whether all the retroactive Joey Marella heat is like X-Pac heat for you (which it sounds like with all the Dino Bravo comparisons; and cannot agree with you more there). I mean he helped make the Hogan matches flow like they were supposed to which were entertaining, at least for the masses like me. Sure, he looks inept in a kayfabe way but I feel like you hate this guy like a shoot.
P.S. I sent Gorilla Monsoon a sympathy card when Joey died (and received a reply) and I did not end up on a mailing list, so I think it was legit.
Maybe they're just saving up the addresses and you'll get a catalog next month.
