The Getting Over series aims to detail the psychological rules that the world of pro wrestling has developed over the past 100 years.Rule No. 2: A heel should get fans to respect some part of his character, as that will make them hate him even more.Drawing heat from a crowd is a job requirement for a heel. For those wishing to go a step further, they need to follow the advice of wrestling legend Johnny Valentine.Valentine, the father of former WWE superstar Greg The Hammer Valentine, was an all-time great heel and a man whom Ric Flair said he patterned himself after.Flair wasnt the only wrestler to do this, as his fellow Four Horsemen member Tully Blanchard learned a very important heel lesson from Valentine. Blanchard said Valentine instructed him that if you can get fans to hate you and then make them respect you, it would make the fans hate you even more.The reasoning behind this is fairly simple. If a heel can make fans respect him, the audience will want to like him but wont do so because of his underhanded tactics. That will frustrate the audience and make them even madder at his evil deeds.Since heels aim to do anything to get fans to dislike them, how can they do that while also getting fans to respect them?There are a number of paths they can take.Being physically toughJohnny Valentine gained respect from fans as a heel via his deliberate, brutal, hard-hitting matches. He sold every in-ring battle as a true fight by laying in his punches and chops as hard as possible and insisting that his opponent do the same. Valentine also avoided high spots or throwing his opponent into the ropes, as he figured those were things he or his opponent would never do if they got into an actual fight. This style required a slow-build approach to build interest, but once fans had a few weeks to get used to it, it allowed them to easily suspend disbelief in the faux battle and buy into the fact that Valentine was a legitimate tough guy who happened to be a heel.The hardest working man in the businessIn the case of Flair, one might wonder how fans could respect a man who bragged about having more money, bigger cars and prettier women than anyone and who would openly invite those pretty women on national television to come to the hotel The Four Horsemen were staying at (insisting they leave their boyfriends behind).Flair earned that respect by being the hardest working man in the business. A look at his month-by-month match totals during his prime shows that Flair was working nearly every day of the week, an incredible pace given that he was traveling all over the world during his years as the NWA champion. He closed out so many of his matches with one-hour Broadways (contests that ended in a draw) that he became known as the 60-minute man. Flair was also a world-class clotheshorse and, therefore, could make fans believe it when he said he never wore the same suit twice. He wasnt quite the workout maven that Bob Backlund was, but Flair did stay in immaculate condition and never let even so much as one root of his naturally dark hair ever show. As Triple H once said, a lot of guys tried to make this type of character work, but no one ever did it as well as Flair, and the reason was he put in the effort necessary to make it work.Walk slowlyRoddy Piper was so hated that he claimed to have been stabbed three times and shot at, yet he was able to earn respect because of his fearlessness. This trait showed up in his willingness to say or do anything, whether it was walking to the ring in a kilt, insulting Andre The Giant, smashing Jimmy Snuka in the face with a coconut or taking so many chain shots to the head in his Starrcade 1983 match against Greg Valentine that Piper legitimately lost a good portion of hearing in his left ear.Piper also sold the fearless approach by the way he walked to the ring. He detailed this in a Pipers Pit podcast before his 2015 death by saying that he would always take his time when leaving the back and making his way through the crowd. Part of this was designed to give the announcer time to segue from whatever he was talking about into a discussion of Piper, but it was also designed to show the crowd that Piper had no fear. He figured fans recognized that a man who walks slowly is either really confident or really dangerous -- both traits that draw respect.Speak your mindFor CM Punk, his open disrespect for fans, especially smart marks, should have caused those very fans to hate him. Yet they could not help but respect his unwavering adherence to kayfabe. Punks infamous pipe bomb promo, where he expressed frustration over the state of wrestling and his WWE career, was the definition of a worked shoot (meaning it was a planned element designed to look like it was unscripted and happened unexpectedly), but there are those in the industry who think that Punk actually took some liberties in the promo and said things he wasnt supposed to utter. Whether or not that is true, the fact that fans believed Punk was breaking the script and speaking his mind resulted from his 100 percent commitment to kayfabe. It allowed fans to respect him even when Punk was incessantly bragging about being the best in the world.An easier transition from heel to babyfaceNotice a common denominator in all of these wrestlers? They were just as successful -- and in some cases even more successful -- as babyfaces as they were when they were heels.Part of this has to do with the respect factor, making it a lot easier for these wrestlers to pull off the turn from heel to babyface. Without respect, the fans will only think negative thoughts about a wrestler and, therefore, wont be the least bit receptive to accepting the baby-face turn. If the fans respect the heel, they will not only be able to justify the turn, but will actually look forward to it. Darwin Barney Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Paul Molitor Jersey . - Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was speaking to a group of local high school students earlier this week when the conversation turned to the importance of being prepared when opportunities in life arise. http://www.authenticbluejayspro.com/blue-jays-aaron-sanchez-jersey/ . Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz were sent to Toronto on Saturday as the Maple Leafs traded defenceman Jesse Blacker and draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks. Dalton Pompey Jersey .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. Joe Carter Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Colin Kaepernick and Joe Williams live half a world apart but they stand side by side when it comes to racial injustice.NFL star Kaepernick has attracted worldwide headlines for his silent protests about what he believes is the oppression of black people in the U.S, while Williams, a former professional rugby league player and boxer, has been a long-serving campaigner on similar issues for Indigenous Australians.Kaepernicks decision to kneel during the American national anthem has divided opinion across the world; some have praised him for having the courage of his convictions while many others have slammed him for adding further strain to a nation already on edge.Williams leaves no doubt that he is firmly in support of Kaepernick, and he recently called on Indigenous NRL players to follow the Americans lead by kneeling during future renditions of Australias anthem. Williams said to ESPN, however, that the message would be much more powerful if it were delivered by a white player.The non-indigenous people over in the States that are taking a knee need to be applauded, and it would mean more for a white person to take a knee here in the NRL, Williams told ESPN.People ask me why is it that I want the black people to kneel down during the anthem, but I want the white people to kneel down, too.Kaepernicks actions are being played out in front of a worldwide audience, but he is by no means a pioneer when it comes to this type of protest; Williams refused to stand for Advance Australia Fair 20 months before Kaepernick first started his protest.Willims survived a suicide attempt in 2011, since then he has used his experience to carve out a successful career as a youth worker and motivational speaker. His efforts were recognised with a Citizen of the Year Award in his home town of Wagga Wagga in the New South Wales Riverina region, but its never been personal recognition that Williamms craves; rather, he seeks the recognition of his people, Indigenous Australians, and hence he refused to stand for the national anthem during the Australia Day award ceremony on Jan.dddddddddddd 26, 2015 because the anthem doesnt represent us, the Indigenous community, at all.I cant stand it, Williams told ESPN.It reminds me of bloodshed -- rape, torture, bloodshed and the loss of innocent lives.Why do you think I called on the NRL players to do it?When I did it, I was seen as a disgruntled little black boy; but if the NRL boys did it then theyd be disgruntled black boys on a national stage.Kaepernicks doing his protest on a much bigger scale so whats saying our rugby league players cant do it, or our AFL players cant do it?Williams believes Australia has a long way to go before it can genuinely claim to be free of racism, but he did acknowledge that the nation is slowly changing for the better.The 33-year-old revealed that he was target of several racial slurs little more than a decade ago during his NRL career at South Sydney, Canterbury and Penrith, although he accepts the taunts werent intended as anything other than harmless fun.He acknowledges those days are gone but points out that a number of incidents at sporting events over the past few years are evidence that an ignorant element continues to lurk within the fabric of Australian society.You only have to look at the Adam Goodes incident, Williams told ESPN.Its disappointing but its expected because Australias a racist country.Dane Gagai was also racially slurred during a Newcastle NRL game earlier this year.My friend heard that from another bay away; there wouldve been at least 30 people that heard it very close to them that didnt do anything about it.What you ignore is what you accept.
