“Special Man-Pain” was the result of having more space in the upper-right hand corner than I expected after placing the dialogue balloons and the characters and stuff. I could have re-arranged the layout, but “special man-pain” made me laugh so I left things how they were.
We also learn that Dick isn’t a very convincing improviser, but referees are easily distracted. Also, TV Tropes will ruin your life. So, uh, don’t say I didn’t warn you when seven hours have gone by and your eyes start bleeding. There’s a whole big list of pro wrestling tropes and an even bigger list of tropes that aren’t wrestling-specific but are found in wrestling. Which probably only vaguely makes sense, but if you take a look at the way the trope categories are laid out it should be a little clearer.
I also added a new sub-category to the About section describing the basics of pro wrestling rules. I suspect that it’s not new information to most of you guys, but it doesn’t hurt to have it there for folks who might not be as informed about the specifics of large men (and in this comic, aliens, robots, and maybe even a wrasslin’ bear or two) smashing each other in a ring.
