I was in a video store back in 1994 looking through the "pro wrestling" section when I saw a copy of UFC II. I thought to myself, "This sounds like a real life version of the movie 'Blood Sport.' Cool." It also reminded me of an idea that I had for an all real pro wrestling promotion. So I rented it and I've been hooked ever since.
I remember how Royce Gracie reminded me of this character from a comic book that I'd read years before this. The character was called The Contortionist and he would fight people by twisting his body around them like a snake. I think he fought Spiderman.
