Here’s a fun game. It seems like every time I glance at a wrestling blog and scroll a few times to see if I want to follow them, I either see the person who runs the blog say, or they’re reblogging someone else saying that girls don’t actually like pro wrestling.

Like, what does it mean to

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice. 

Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"Alright"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”

Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.

The WWF Superstars pay tribute to Brian Pillman [October 6th, 1997]
On October 5th, 1997, Brian Pillman was set to take on Dude Love at the WWF Pay Per View Badd Blood. The match had all the workings of a possible classic, as both Pillman and Dude Love (Mick Foley) had worked together in other companies, and both were known for their unorthadox styles and unpredictable demeanors. What happened instead was truly tragic.
As the time came closer to Pillman’s match and he still hadn’t arrived at the arena, Jim Cornette was instructed to search for the whereabouts of Pillman. After a phone call was placed to the hotel in which Pillman had stayed, it was learned that he was reported dead as a result of arteriosclerotic heart disease, the same disease that had taken Pillman’s father. 
Though the fans of the WWF had shown resentment for Pillman in recent months, after he’d brandished a gun on live television and had sided with Bret Hart in the Hart Foundation, the reception for his memorial was deafening. Beloved by several long-time wrestling fans, Pillman had a legendary career behind him, having teamed with Stone Cold Steve Austin in WCW as The Hollywood Blondes. His death was a straight shot through the heart of wrestling fans, who had grown to adore him for his lunacy and ability to shock audiences worldwide. He was only 25 years old.
