I seriously doubt Cap threw anybody around at the NYAC. I'm sure Big could handle CAP likes he handle a Big Mac Combo..... It would be over in seconds.

I am not sure what would await me in Russia and I am not currently interested in changing my life. If/when I do I would definitely prefer living in Russia among Russian people much better. My parents did not ask for my opinion in 1990.
Oh I don't know how many of you had similar experiences but I was born and raised as a kid doing things that were very specific to a communist and Soviet society. Many of those things made me who I am. Like seeing my parents have lots of time to spend with me and my brother, irrelevance of money when it came to wrestling and access to it year around with great coaches. Simple life where you could go play soccer outside and not care about video games. The feeling of being born in your country, most of your friends having parents with a similar financial status and you being a native born kid and not an immigrant
Then came Gorbachev and made some crazy changes and things got worse.
Then I come to America and Gorbachev is a great guy here. Russia gets bashed, wrestling is a worthless sport, soccer on the streets is nonexistent, parents work overtime and have no time for kids.
I am considerexd 2nd rate and an immigrant and I don't know what anyone says at school because I don't know the language. I am supposed to be grateful to America for welcoming me here.
Tough changes for a kid that loved his country and his people no?
Finally, its funny I am being asked this question even. Almost every immigrant in America gets reminded every day that he is an immigrant and then people ask you if you consider yourself an American. I don't think you can really be an immigrant and an American.
I know some of you will disagree but its not like someone comes up to George Bush and says you know you are really an immigrant here.
Obviously, you must not hate it here too much, because you sure love milking the system for all its worth. Ungreatfully too I might add.
I have a strong disagreement with American ideologies. To me I would ban all video games and create more soccer fields and wrestling rooms. Spent more time and money on having people play sports rather than work and get expensive mortgages. I despise lust of money and seeing and hearing everything in terms of money and luxury.
Being an American to me is not simply LIVING on a territory that is America. Its love for football (American), love of money, working overtime, loving freedom and democracy, and so on. Being an American is in your head not in your place of residence.
Big, do you find it ironic that in your ideal world where things are banned simply because you don't like them (video games, for one, apparently,) that you would not be able to voice your contrarian opinions like you do? Also, what is different about playing video games than racking up 20,000 something posts on wrestling web boards? Thankfully we have freedom to choose, and not someone like you randomly deciding how the rest of us should spend our time.
