Shaw Brothers Universe (Hong Kong Kung Fu movies)

SHAW BROTHERS MOVIES Hong Kong Kung Fu movies.

Between 760 to 1,000 films in all.
One movie every week and turning a profit on each.

The Shaw Brothers ruled it all. They make movies with their own stars, actors, stuntmen, technicians, fan magazines, editors, sound stagers, composers, editors, etc. Everything was done in house.

Shaw Brothers Studio was modeled after the classic Hollywood system, with hundreds of actors signed to exclusive contracts. While other studios rotated cast members, Shaw Brothers assigned certain groups of actors to work exclusively with certain directors.

In its heyday, it was considered to be the world’s largest privately owned movie production studio with around 23 buildings laid out across the 46 acre site. With residential buildings for actors and crew as well as private homes, it was somewhat of a movie sweatshop, and it came to be known as Movietown.

Shaw Brothers Studio is largely known for his Martial Arts movies. However "only" 260 are Martial Arts movies.

Shaw Brothers Studio number of Kung Fu movies by year.

260 Kung Fu movies over 22 years. (average 11.8 movies per year)

Since you all know how much I love Money, I will throw you some number$.

In 2007, Forbes estimated the worth of the Shaw media empire at $3.5 Billion.

1 HK$ = 0.129 USD$

Movie magnate and philanthropist Run Run Shaw’s total assets were more than HK$20 Billion (USD$2.58 Billion).



Here is my brand new banner in which I've included the past in the background, the present forward, and right in the middle.

The past is represented by Hulk Hogan (pro wrestling), Muhammad Ali (boxing), Bruce Lee (martial arts).

The present is represented by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (highest-paid actor and one of the GOAT pro wrestlers), Floyd "Money" Mayweather (boxing biggest money-making machine ever), and "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey (former UFC & WWE Womens World Champion)

Then the forever, with the logo right in the middle.

The old banner that I've used since 2009, maybe?! The four badasses on top represented the top four GOAT gladiators of their respective Combat Sports.
  • Hulk Hogan (pro wrestling)
  • Muhammad Ali (boxing)
  • Fedor Emelianenko (MMA)
  • Bob Probert (hockey enforcer) 
An hockey goon instead of a kickboxer since kickboxing isn't much of a thing anymore. Particularly since K1 is dead. 😥

And the four musclemen on the buttom represented the top GOAT in their respective Strength Sport.
  • Andy Bolton (powerlifting)
  • Vasily Alekseyev (Olympic weightlifting)
  • Mariusz Pudzianowski (strongman competition)
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger (bodybuilding)

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul purses

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul purses.

Unlike what's stated in the video below, a more accurate estimation of Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather purses would be $100 Million for Floyd Mayweather and $20 Million for Logan Paul.

That's their following, fanbase and fame that make them so much Money. 
It's all about the attention.

Who Really Won Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather? YouTube podcast by Colin and Samir offers a clear analysis of the repercussion of this one of a kind "Boxing Exhibition" between two masters of self-promotion. (the video is just below)

Celebrity Deathmatch comes to life.

Celebrity Deathmatch MTV.

The Paul Brothers put up their own boxing promotion Most Valuable Promotions.

Paul Brothers Most Valuable Promotions.

Logan Paul is all about bringing in the cash and entertaining the people. Here's what he said: 
"As long as it can bring an audience, Jake and I want to be the biggest prize fighters on the planet. We wanna fight people who will put on a big show, draw a large audience and entertain a lot of people. That's what we wanna do... This is a three, four, five, six, seven-year plan."

The term he used here is prize fighter, not boxer. They want to put on the biggest fuckin' show with the biggest fuckin' crowd with as much media fanfare around it as humanly possible. That's what bring eyeballs! That's what bring excitement!! That's what bring big Money around a fight!!! Pure entertainment, mass appeal and reaching a brand (no pun intented) new audience to the sport of Boxing.!!!

In my view, whether you like it or not, this is the future of Boxing. 
Just looks at the numbers.
Money talks. Bullshit walks.

Chris Jericho WWE win-loss record


Chris Jericho WWE win-loss record.

Chris Jericho defeated The Rock and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin on the same night in 2001 to become the Undisputed Champion.

Chris Jericho is a 6 times WWF/WWE World Champion and a Grand Slam Champion.

Chris Jericho WWF/WWE win-loss record: 535 wins - 1,123 losses - 42 draws

Still more realistic than the 30-0 pro boxing records carefully achieved by avoiding any serious opponent.

Hugo Girard vs. Patrick Côté - Strongman vs UFC

Hugo Girard vs. Patrick Côté Strongman vs Patrick Côté.

Hugo Girard vs Pat Côté - UFC vs Strongman.

Patrick Côté, Québec, Canada, 5'11", 228 lbs, age 39.  
MMA 23-10 (21 UFC Fights); 1 Pro Boxing match

Hugo Girard, Québec, Canada, 6', 327 lb, age 37. 
Champion du World Strongman Challenge en 2002.

The Exhibition (I hate this word) took place in September 20, 2019.

Nothing more than a glorified sparring session.
Like I always say, "if this shit was real". Even fat and out of shape, Patrick Côté would have KTFO of roided strongman Hugo Girard.

One reason only, Patrick Côté was, not too long ago, a world-class MMA Fighter. He fought 21 fights in the UFC. Enough said!

Satans Schlongs > Affliction & Ed Hardy (Christian Audigier)


I've seen a lot of Affliction MMA-related T-shirts and Ed Hardy tattoos-related shirts. Both brands are heavily associated with Jersey Shore-wannabe douchebags.

Ed Hardy D-Bags.

Affliction wearing virgin tough guys.
Affliction wearing virgin tough guys

Which resulted in Affliction and Ed Hardy (Christian Audigier) T-shirt wearers being banned from some public etablishments. No joke!

Talk about a douchebags segregation.

As impregrated in popular culture as they were. Both brands were extremely lucrative.

Affliction Clothing peaked in 2008 with $100 Million in revenues (sales) and they even had their own MMA promotion (Affliction Entertainment) from 2008 to 2009 with Donald Trump as a major shareholder and Trump's fixer Michael Cohen as COO.

Meanwhile, Ed Hardy (Christian Audigier) peaked in 2009 with over $700 MILLION in gross revenues!!!

Typical Affliction shirt.
This resume all Affliction shirts.

Let's see a more interesting, and current, MMA themed kind of shirt.

Satans Schlongs by PYGOD.

SLAUGHTERSPORT Kid T-shirt as worn by MMA Fighter.
Just by looking at those ears, you can see that this guy is a 
legit MMA Fighter.

Nothing douchebag about him.

SLAUGHTERSPORT Kid T-shirt as worn by MMA Fighter.

A huge MMA Fighter smashing the face of a poor bastard into a pulp is certainly more MMA and badass than random skulls, birds and rhinestones patterns?!

The above T-Shirt and the Artwork on it is named SLAUGHTERSPORT Kid of the Satans Schlongs Collection created by PYGOD.

Wanna be Affliction wearing tough guy who just try too hard.
Another fake Affliction wearing fake tough guy ready to fight.

Nothing tough about wearing an Affliction shirt.

A no-brainer...
