Mystery is Over or is it

A few days ago one of my usual dirtsheets in a headline stated that a current TNA Champion's contract is expiring in the next month. The person is one-half of the current TNA Tag Team Champion Hernandez which also goes along with Eric Bischoff's & Hulk Hogan's contracts expiring in the next month as well. So TNA needs to sit down and think about to they really need all three of these guys like really think about it. Hernandez his in ring work has really gone down since coming back from Mexico in feburary as he seems more careless & less commited then when he left. Maybe it would be good for him to get a fresh start somewhere else so hernandez can get his head clear his commitment back. On the other hand there is Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff at one point almost helped put WWE out of business but now time has changed them. Hogan has had 8 back surgries in the last year and cant take bumps anymore because of it and maybe it would be better if for something where he …

History of: Whats Next

With not many known companies left to tell the history of I want to tell the story of companies you want to hear about as oppose to reading something you dont care about. So please on the place i post this please post what you want to learn about it doesnt have to be the history of a company that is in the US as if i dont know about it then i do reasearch. Wether its ECW, Dragon Gate, ROH, Evovle, Chikara, CMLL, AAA, WWE, NYWC, AAW, & any other company i have written about your just curious about. I am doing this because of the good reception that the last History of got and i would rather keep the popularity than lose. So what find that out then to ask those people who matter the most to this site.

TNA: Truth from the Inside

I have been waiting for a while to blog about this partly because i forgot the other part i just didnt know what to say about it. I mean how is the nicest way to say that an ex-employee thinks the company that he helped found will not successed unless they make changes. The employee was Jerry Jarrett who recently did an interview postandcourier.com & during which he talked about TNA. How he thinks that until make drastic crative changes "they will continue to be the drain on Panda Energy that they are now and have been since inception. That is an eye opener seeing as its comeing from the co-founder who may not have stock or a position in the company anymore but his opinion should still be valued especally by his son. He even went as far to say “The core of their problems is the creative development of their product. They have to cut the cancer out.” Thats crazy I mean i agree with him and unless they do make changes they will continue to loss people, money, fans, etc because …

Today we continue with the set of first time as for the first time i am going to do a show that is not of the WWE, it is from their library but when this company was open was an important show i am talking Superclash 1 and the AWA. This was in 1985 live from Comiskey Park in Chi-Town it beinging the first show with World titles from 3 different promotions on the line WCCW, NWA, & AWA. The first world title match was the WCCW texas heavyweight title which was their world belt at that point and was held by Kerry Von Erich who fought Jimmy Garvin on that night. He won the match & retained the title (nerd note: tonight is also the show where sherri martel won her first title from candi devine.) Another interesting fact is that on this card it had 10 future WWE employees on the show including William Regal, Brad Rheigans, Harley Race, Kamala, and a few others. Also their was a lot of future Hall of Famers on that card 11 to be exact from Flair, Race, Slauter, LOD, Henning, Sherri M…

For the first time i am actually going to speak of our friends across the pacific as they have wrestling companies to and they deserve to spoke of. One in particular today is Pro Wrestling NOAH also known as the company where a lot of ROH talent tour their when they go to japan. But this is on a less somber note as today 2 years ago they put together a tribute show for a fallen star his name was Mitsharu Misawa who died in June in the ring after a heart attack. On this show we saw some of the most talented wrestlers in the world like Jun Akiyama, Great Muta Kenta Kobashi, Kenta, former ROH world champion Takehsi Morishima, GO Shiozaki, as well as many others. All to pay tribute to their fallen friend & boss, on this night they gave him the respect he deserved and it should how many people he touched during his life. This night was capped of by the world title match more specifically the GHC world title on the line as Go Shiozaki fought Akitoshi Saito. Which Go won after a great 24…

Seth Rollins (Tyler Black)


Best Possible Feuds: Punk, Storm, Cole, Sting

Starting in 2005 he made his debut for a company called Scott County Wrestling or (SCW) which is the place where he honed his skills. Also in the company and the IWA-US are the first two places in which in won titles winning the SCW World title & the IWA light weight title belts. He went to FIP where he won the Full Impact Pro world title while their he got  noticed by ROH and made his debut for them in 2007 at the Man Up ppv as a part of the Age of the Fall. While in the Age of the Fall he won the ROH tag titles twice both times with Jimmy Jacobs but it wasnt until AOTF broke up that Tyler saw his full potential. It started in 2008 the ROH fans were chanting NEXT WORLD CHAMPION clap clap clap. It kept going and where even louder in 2009 when Tyler won Survival of the Fittest giving him the right for a World title shot. Which he got at Final Battle but went to a Draw vs Austin Aries but ended up beating him…

Can You Dig It Sucka

News broke yesterday that WWE has been delibrating with the thought of Booker, T coming back to the ring for a short program with someone. The details are unclear at the moment it is said that he will be fighting someone on Smackdown since that is his show. Book has not had a feud in WWE since the HHH feud way back in 2007 before he left for TNA. Interesting fact it was Booker who fought Cena in the match that Cena tore his pectoral muscle in & it would also become his last match in WWE. Until a couple of months ago when he fought Jack Swagger winning via Countout on Raw. I think this may help the WWE is they pick the right person to feud with him favorablya young talent so it could result in Book putting the younger guy over. Doing that would help a young guy gain a lot of crediblity which is something the pushed young talent in WWE has lack for a very long time. This would only work for a short time most likely it depends on how far along the talent is a what the storyline entai…

Ring of SBS

Tonight ROH will return to TV under new ownership & on a new TV station with the Sinclair Broadcasting System. You will see tonight main event The Kings of Wrestling vs Wrestling Greatest Tag Team which will be the Kings last ROH appearance before going to the WWE. We will see the return of a former ROH world champion tonight as well. Bravados vs Future Shock (Cole & O' Riley) a feud that has been going on for a while now between two of the top young teams in wrestling comes to ahead tonight. A new broadcast team as both Hogwood & Dave is out giving Kevin Kelly the lead role at the table with an unknown partner or he might be solo. Also tonight Davey defends the title against Roderick Strong in the main event. Generico also defends the TV Title against Jay Lethal by the fact Jay had the title at DBD 9 I think they gave away the winner. Finally a rematch from Defy or Deny between Edwards & Elgin & a feud that has gone on & on & on for most of the year AN…

Today the lineage of one of the greatest wrestling families expanded to include another this time a girl her name is Stephanie McMahon. Steph at first had a normal life until 1999 when she started working for her dad at the WWF. Only appearing on TV sporadically but by the middle of 99 she had her first angle this invovled Test "her boyfriend" she was about to get married to him when HHH came out to reveal him & steph were "married" already. By the end of 99 she was a regular character as she was the on-screen power with HHH controlling the show. This lasted until a few weeks before Hunter went down then she took time away until she came back as a member of the Invasion in 2001. She was pulled again until Jericho won the title then she became his manager until he lost the belt by then she started a feud with at that point her "ex-husband" HHH. The written off TV again until mid 2002 when she came-back as the GM of smackdown stayed that for around a ye…

Hulkster or Huckster

Over the past couple of months their has been talk in the internet community about how excited we are to see a match that took place 15 years ago & failed i am talking about Hulk Hogan vs Sting. I am aware this is a new generation but that doesnt mean you give them the same matches that excited the past generations of the 90's. Also their has been concerns on weather Hogan can fight and weather he can take bumps or not which is what they call moves during a match. As over the last year Hogan has had 8 back surgeries and is still looking to comeback. I am very happy that TNA is putting as much hype as they have behide this match but i wish they would do it for a match that doesnt invovle two guys who's career are almost over in the ring. But unproven track records is what companies like TNA dont like unless someone in managment likes them and backs them like WWE. But at least in WWE the people with the unproven track records get pushed & are given an opportunity not lik…

Before their was all these gimmick ppv's damaging the uniqueness of these special matches their was one name for all WWE ppv's and that's In Your House: Mind Games. This ppv had a match between Jose Lothario & Jim Cornette which Jose won. Also their was a tag team title match between Camp Cornette ( Owen Hart & British Bulldog) vs Smoking Guns. Which Owen & the Bulldog won, the reason this show is special well its because of the next match between Mark Henry vs Jerry "The King" Lawler. Which Mark won but it makes it special because it was Mark's WWE debut who knew he would stay for 15 years. The main event of that night was Mankind vs Shawn Michael's for the title to show that Michael's was just another pretty face. They did that even though the match ended in a DQ still because the Undertaker came out of a casket that was at ringside and attacked Mankind costing Mick the match. Now Mark is the champion it only took him 15 years to get the…

Revolution or Restoration

I have said things about wrestling most unique company Evovle on many occaisons but i have that everyone doesnt believe the hype but maybe this will help. When people hear that this company doesnt have any titles well they cant believe that and dont want to think of something so foregin. But i am going to send out some facts first being that the promotion named Chikara which has been around since 2002 is making their first title now 9 years later. Also way back at the time when wrestling was just begining having title matches was a foregin idea to the fans but now people have gotten spolied and dont want to see something new different unique. This company also mix familar with new like most indy companies but also adds a little uniquness to the mix but i will talk about that in a little bit now the stars that are their. Known faces like Mike Quackenbush, Austin Aries, Homcide, & some guest/former stars are Bryan Danielson (daniel bryan), Chris Hero, Claudio Castagnoli, & Ken D…

This day in Westling History

today is the unfortuate date that wrestling lost another performer this time he was older than 40 as he was almost 50 his Ted Petty aka Rocco Rock. Known to Monday Night Wars generation as one half of the Public Enemy with his Tag partner Johnny Grundge (Michael Durham). To begin his career Ted was the Cheetah Kid in japan and had a very good success. Then he started in the NWA as Colonel DeKlerk for a  short time then went back to the scence until. ECW & UWF started teaming him with Johnny then it was just ECW their gimmick inner city holligans. They helped changed the business and became reasons why ECW was the alternative and became a success. If thats not true then why did WCW sign them in 1996 & then brought them back in 99. Also in 99 the WWF had them for a short time as well but things didnt click between them and the rest of the roster so they left. Over their careers they acummulated 14 tag team titles regins in a majority of different companies excluding 3 were they …

Today is actually a big day full of special events that happend but i chose ECW As Good as it Gets from 1997. First thing was that night was the night that a man that was (and still is by the way) not the greatest, not just best but, Justin Credible debuted and a career was born. Finally finding himself a good gimmick were he can actually be normal and show off the skills that he has which they both did (him & lynn) in that match. The next highlight came later in the card when Bam Bam Bigelow fought Spike Dudley in a ppv rematch. This time bam bam showed his dominence when he picked spike up in a like he was going to do a milatary slam but instead send him into the 3 or 4th row of the arena. That night Spike became the first wrestler to body surf which he did after bam bam through him into the crowd. The next thing was Sabu vs Sandman it was big deal cause it was the first time well it ended not well because Sabu tried to imitate his uncle the Sheik when. The "fireball" …

Johnny Gargano
good on the mic
great in ring

Best Possible Feuds: Bryan, Punk, Hero, Kobiashi, Kaz

Gargano like Miz is from Cleveland Ohio, and has been on the circut for 5 years and has been a part of baiscally almost every indy promotion and has been on episodes of smackdown & Nxt as an extra. For those people who dont think the indy scence helps and its just the minors well Johnny Gargano proves that wrong because of what he has done over the last 2 years. Johnny has improved leaps and bounds in the ring since 2009 and that is great to see because if he keeps on that pace then he will be one of the best wrestler in the world in the future. I have seen Johnny from 2008 then Johnny from 2010 and they are totally different people in the ring i dont know if he is more relaxed or what but Gargano has become an indy sensation …

This day 65 years ago a true wrestling legend was born into the world, he made tag team wrestling famous with him and his brother Jack vs The Funks, It's Happy Birthday to Gerald Brisco. He debuted in 1969 after being train by his brother Jack went into a team with him for 13 years. While a team with his brother they won 20 tag team title in various titles over the period that i just said. Dominanting both the florida tag scence & singles competition for many years. This well noted by those who know the era that Gerry didnt have as much singles success as Jack but maybe it was because Gerry was missing that Jack wasnt. Now the biggest event thing that he is remebered for is being one of the main encouragers in share sell of GCW to Vince which later gave way to Balck Saturday. For those who dont know Black Saturday was the day in wrestling history when got the timeslot usually pegged for WCW instead it was Vince. All you really need to know for this is that Gerry hepled in the …

Post PPV Thoughts

Night of Champions was last night for the most part i was wrong as i guessed the US title, HHH/Punk, WWE Title, & the Women's title matches all wrong. Which 3 of them are the ones i want to touch on in this blog. First the Women's title match Beth vs Kelly this means no offense to Kelly as i think she is a great champion and has improved greatly since her debut. But last night they were in Beth's hometown and what better place to win a title i dont understand why they didnt because last time i checked beth was the heel & kelly was the face not the other way. Also its not just me who didnt like it everyone their didnt because the Bull**** chants went on for 1 minute after the match ended. I hope they dont try an carry this on to turn kelly heel or something because that something not good for business.

PPV Predictions

Night Of Champions
Not in order
(c) Kelly Kelly vs Beth Pheonix (Divas Title) this match could be good if given time which it wont be because the WWE team feel the women dont need the time that the men do which isnt true. i see beth winning because its her hometown and when it comes to defense in WWE if you get two in a row & your name is not christian you usually win (c) Air Boom vs Miz & Truth (Tag Team Titles) this match could be good if given time and if the WWE is serious about revitalizing the tag division then this is where you start and keep going from their (c) Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs Jack Swagger vs Alex Riley vs John Morrison (US Title) I think this will be a good match because all of these guy have been pegged one time or another to have a bright future in the WWE so it will be good to see who stand were somewhat. i would like to see Swagger win because it would take the dolph feud to the next level and Jack has not won mid-card gold yet in his WWE career (…

Post PPV Thoughts

Last night was ROH Death Before Dishonor & it was on of the best ppv's i have ever seen. Only bad thing is we missed baiscally all of the first match and i didnt even know their was a dark match. But i am going to focus on the 4 things in my book that stole the show first it was the 3 way tag team match between the brovados, bucks, & future shock. Which the buck's won & that match was probably the best tag team match i have seen in quite a while like regular tag match hopefully the buck continue to comeback cause they are good and make everyone look good. Next was Jacobs vs Genrico but it wasnt the match it was something that heppend during it Steen came over the railing and grab a mic to say hi to generico & jimmy before his mic was cut off by a tech guy. During this the locker room empited to try and get steen out of their but then he started fighting the locker room. Before the fans knew he got into it with jimmy on the floor powerbombing him into the the ap…

PPV Predictions

Death Before Dishonor
Not in any order:
3 Elmination Tag Match: Young Bucks vs Future Shock vs Brovado Brothers if june is any indication the brovados will be out first to let the other fight it out ROH usually has no problem giving matches that deserve the time some time which this is one of them as these are two of the best up-n-comeing tag teams in the world today. i see Bucks winning again making them 2-0 since comeing back to ROH El Generico vs Jimmy Jacobs (w/ Steve Corino) I really have as good an idea what to except with this match like i do all the others because i really have not seen that much of Jacobs to know solidly what to expect from him but still generico is a good enough & well rounded enough to really make any match good one if need be which never know but i go with Jacobs winning because they want him to start were he left off in the ring. Jay Lethal & Homcide vs Rhino & Thomasso Ciampa this should be good as this is a big feud in the company so it deserve…

Call Up a poison or blessing

Everytime news breaks that someone is getting promoted from FCW they either get injured before the call up.  I am talking about the fact that it seems that anytime the WWE says they will bring someone up they get hurt person i can remember this happening to is Richie Steamboat. This was 2-maybe 2 & half years ago when he tore his posterior cructiate ligament which prevented him to get the call up this kept him out of the ring for months and costed him it at that moment but will still get into the WWE gurantee. The next person was Brett Dibiase he was going to get the call up from farm to make a stable with his brother Ted & Joe Henning called the fortuante sons a knock of Legacy but still something. But it was not to be as Brett went down with severe knee injury sideling him for months and costing him his in ring career now he is a ref down in FCW training to the call that way instead. Next unfortuantly was Wes Brisco as again he like the other two got hit with the leg injury …

Starting his wrestling career in 1985 apart of Jim Crockett promotions as a referee thats was until he started being inpartial to the heels allowing them to win by cheating sometimes him causing it.

Gold Dust is a Must
during the mid 1920's Toots Mondt this is prior to his partnership with Vince. SR, Billy Sandow ex wrestler like Mondt, & Ed Lewis who at that time still fought formed the first promotion. This was originally just to make it so Lewis had opponents all the time but it invovled into something bigger.  Thanks to the innovations from Toots like shorting the matches, creating time limits, made package shows instead of one match, etc their business took off. At one point these guys had 500 stars and revolutionized the business as we know it & developed a thing called kayfabe. Which is baiscally what we call nowadays going by the script but back then everything was in kayfabe because it was before the internet, noisy fans, & Jack Pfefer. These 3 guys went on to be known as the Gold Dust Trio for all the time that their company was in exsistance. The trio also relized that the fans would get tired of the same person as champion aka Lewis so he said he would…

This day 10 years ago the WWE the largest public gathering of its sort since the attacks of that Tuesday for those wondering what i am talking about it was September 11th. The WWF Smackdown "live" in Houston which prior to the show they did a 10 bell salute to victims of the attacks with Lilan Garcia singing the National Anthem. Though i may have been a youngin at the time from the books that have spoke about it, the TV documentaries regarding it, & & our teachers talking about it we have all learned what happend that day in September & why. This was in the mix of the WWF invasion and all Vince could say was "We need pull together as a nation & show that United We Stand Divide we fall. During the opening segment Garcia, Booker,t, & many other stars, as well as fans were brought to tears during the National Anthem. During the show all the superstars shared their thoughts on the tragedy some having friends and Relatives at ground zero. The show was mai…

WCW: The Finale

as you all know i have done a series of posts invovling the WCW well if you cant tell from the title this will be the final part. After Saturn, Benoit, Guerrero, & Malenko left the day after Sold Out WCW had No World Champion & the young talent was getting less & less & less. Also less than a month later employees Hardbody Harrison, Sonny Ono, & many other launched a racial discrimination charge against WCW even further demoralizing the locker room. One manager who had been with the company for 4 years now said his fianl salary was 160,000 which was half of what an average wrestler was making. Brought back 3 months after he was fired was Russo but this time he had Eric Bischoff's help and it worked for a few weeks with them vacating all the belts & relauching on April 10. Also that night WCW started pushing the young talent left like Douglas, Kidman, Vampiro, Stasiak, Awsome, Storm, Bagwell, & etc. They also brought in more rookies like Mike Sanders, Se…

Post PPV Thoughts

Last night was NO Surrender where i guessed and good again guessing every match right but 3 the BFG series & the knockouts belt. I guessed that Sorensen, Aries, Morgan, & Angle would all win which really shows that i know TNA. I didnt not find until after the show that their was a tag team match of any sort on the show. The best matches of the night in my book were Aries vs Kendrick very good back n forth, Storm vs Ray a lot longer than expected. Finally Roode vs Gunner was exactlly what i expected maybe could have been a little better but know how they did it both guys have momentum because of the promo Ray cut on Gunner & Roode's win. The Main Event was a little dissappointing maybe because it has only been Sting or Anderson going for it this year which is annoying. Also the layout of the match wasnt exciting & it could have been that Angle said he would probably on an interview but i try an look away from that. Gunner was right No Surrender was a Success not a b…

Today the wrestling world suffered a major loss as promoter & a major player in the history of wrestling this man died at the age of 79 his name was Jack Pfefer. Jack was apart of a prior post in the first Nerd Note he was Ricky Star's manager. Jack also gave Lillian Ellison aka Fabulous Moolah her name when she wanted to start wrestling way back in the 1950's. Jack is famous for being the first promoter in the east to use TV as his advantage propelling Jim Londos to center stage existence. Jack is more known for reveling the secrets of the business in November of 1934. This happened because ally Jim Londos who ran a company in the northeast combined with Jack Currly who Pfefer hated for making Londos quit the eastern territory. Also combing Fabini, Packs, White, Mondt, & Bowser which lead to one group later refered to as the NWA running North America. So bitter & looking for revenge on those who took him out of the business he screwed them and costed them thousan…

PPV Predictions

No Surrender
Not in the order of the actual matches
Austin Aries vs Brian Kendrick X-Divsion title this can be an average match if given enough time i dont see it being like a good match because neither of these two are big high flyers. i see Austin coming out on top because as aries has never won the X-Division title even though he was in the company before now is he's chance to show how good he really is. BFG Series Match James Strom vs Bully Ray i dont see this being a show stealing match unless both guys will be getting some sort of a push, so in that case i see this match beinging average with Ray coming out on top. Because out of the two Ray is the one getting pushed so make sense for him to get to the finals Matt Morgan vs Samoa Joe Joe has been a path of destruction for past couple of weeks and this match will be no different as i think this match maybe one of the better matches of the night. It depends on which story they are going with crimson/joe or morgan/joe, actually i …

This is a new a blog for the site, i just want to see how well it is recieved by you guys if well then this will continue for a while hopefully if not it will go back to being in the articles. This is meant to educate you on some things that happend in the business that you may not about the business. This first edition is about the TV era one specific person really for now and thats Ricky Starr. I am sure many of you have seen or heard of this man well thats why i am here because i have thats why this is Nerd Note. Ricky a former muti-time tag team champion most notablly with Alfred Hayes but, for most of his career he won known for his Ballet Dancing in the ring. Yes, Starr was an actual Ballet dancer and joined the sport having success in the tag division & having a lengthy career as babyface. He was also managed by then promoter Jack Fefer but not managed inside the ring he was actually managed by him.

I hope this offered some insist into the past wrestlers of the business

I know it maybe a little late but i have been busy with school just starting so bear with me please the site will stay i will try my hardest to keep the posts coming. This day 4 years ago their was a TNA ppv where the tag team titles actually given some meaning by a non-wrestler as that night Pacman Jones debuted in ring for TNA. It was in a tag match he was with Truth & they fought Angle & Sting and Pac & Truth won farily quick. That was the first time that TNA had a celebrity in the ring he wasnt bad to bad he couldnt stay longer as that was during his suspenion. For those who dont know this is when Pacmen got suspended & during the offseason got signed. Which is why he had to drop the belts because of the fact football season was starting again. Also that was not only the first and last celeb to hold a TNA belt but that was also Truth's last storyline before leaving. As during that time he knew he was a top guy but wasnt being paid like one so when his contract …

The Miz

Great on the mic
good in ring

Best Possible Feuds: Cena, Rock, Angle, Punk, Jericho, Edge

Starting out as reality tv star before going to WWE Tough Enough in 2004 he didnt win but he get signed by the WWE. Debuting in 2006 with the main roster an immediatley making an impact going undefeated for the first few months of his career. His first title was the tag team titles with Morrison back in 07 from MVP & Matt Hardy on Smackdown. That started the push for The Miz after staying on ECW for a few years he got drafted right to Raw in 09.
His career took off from their as he almost right away got into a feud with Cena which let him show off his true in ring ablity. Also showed he would be destinded for great things in the future which would be Money in the Bank in July of 2010. Cashing it in November of that year vs Randy Orton on Raw much to the shock of everyone in the audience especially one girl (angry Miz girl).

Serious Business

I am well aware that I blog about this yesterday but i want to go back to Kurt Angle's situation but not just focus on Kurt. As he is not the first and sure as hell wont be the last person to have this happened to it just happened to be this that made me want to blog about this. What i am talking about is a topic very close to my heart and that Drugs & Alcohol in the business. It is a very touchy subject because of the fact that drugs is what took a couple of my favorite wrestlers from the business which are Brian Pillman & Eddie Guerrero. Though Eddie quit it still impacted him in the long run costing him his life basically & Brian unlike Eddie he wasn't able to beat it and his addiction cost him what could have been a very good life. It has also played a part in the deaths of Louie Spicolli, Luna Vachon, Eddie Gilbert, 2 or 3 of the Von Erichs, as well as Gino Hernandez, & unfortunately i am aware many others but these are the people of the top of my head.

Before all these gimmick ppv's and different ppv names their was one name for all the WWE ppv's and it was In Your House the was called IYH 17 or IYH Ground Zero. This show was a very well hyped show as i remember from the Monday Night Wars on WWE ON Demand. With this being the first time Undertaker & Shawn Michaels meet as well as the much anticipated Patriot vs Bret Hart for the belt. Which Bret Hart obvisously won because i bet somepeople are reading this and are like who is The Patriot well (real name Del Wikes he performed from 1996-1998) for the WWF before leaving. Nobody won the main event as it ended in a No Contest, therefore neither of them had lose crediblity to the other in a big feud like this. This show also played host to a scary moment in the career of Scott Putski as during a match with Brian Christopher they botched a tope or most call it a cross-body over the top which resulted in Scott being taken from the ring on a streacher because he broke his leg. T…

This Day in Wrestling History

This day 60 years ago, one of the greatest WWE diva's was born. That women's name is
Wendi Richter! She was trained by the Fabulous Moolah, Wendi made her debut in 1979.
Wendi won her first women's title at The Brawl to End it All, on MTV, against Moolah on July 23, 1984.
On November 25th Wendi faced a women called the Spider-Lady. During the match, The Spider Lady broke from the pre-scripted events and pinned Richter's shoulders to the mat. The referee who was in on the plan delivered a swift three count, despite Richter kicking out after a count of one. Richter ignored the bell and continued to attack the Spider, unmasking the new champion to reveal that it was The Faboulas Moolah in disguise.After that, she left the WWE.
Wendi Richter was inducted in the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2010 by Ted Dibiase.
Wendi is yet to retire, and is proving that age is just a number.

Bad Publicity does exist

This past week TNA world champion Kurt Angle got arrested for DUI though he only blew a .06 still the cops thought he wasn't fit to drive. This has been nothing but bad things for not only Kurt but his movie to as the Warrior is suppose to hit theaters soon and how does that look if one of the stars are arrested before the movie comes out. But this goes along with Gregory Helms, Daffney, & Matt Hardy all getting busted for the same thing as Kurt or having to do with the same thing as him. Which all these people getting busted does put a good taste in the mouth of though kids aspiring to be pro wrestlers & the people who are veterans in the business. The worst part is that Kurt is the TNA World Champion so he is suppose to be setting an example for all the wrestlers and the executives to proud of but this isn't what they thought. To back to Matt Hardy a second he was one of the best tag team stars of all time but now he is messed up and needs help. He may say he is ok b…

History of: WCW p5

Getting right into where i left off 1998 also played host to the last two ratings wins by the WCW September 14 & October 25. September 14th was the return of Ric Flair to reform the Horeman one more time & Oct was the full match between DDP vs Goldberg. That match was suppose to run at the ppv but because of an over run in time they lost the feed so instead of gaining money they lost a mega amount for putting the show on free TV & because of the cut off. October 25th was the last time that WCW ever won in the ratings here is a picture that shows you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Monday_night_wars_ratings.gif. The decline started when Kevin Nash took over booking which was a mistake cause he was still an active wrestler which any promoter would tell is somthing that you cant do. Which was true cause in the span of 3 months Nash won World War 3, ended Goldberg's streak, & won the world title all things he should not have done cause he was already established. The…

Billy Reil Interview

Question: Why did you get into the buisness?

Billy: I guess I needed an escape from the streets you know. I was 14 years old and half of my friends were already slinging drugs, and getting high. I never was a follower. I was born with good instincts, so I figured even though the odds were heavily against me in making a name for myself in the wrestling business that going down a dead-end street with gangs was out of the question, so i took my chances in the ring.

Question: How did you get into the business?
Billy: To quote Axl Rotten " I was like all the other rats, putting the boys over"..hahah. Seriously though I saw a poster for a local indy show, and called the number and told them that I was already a wrestler and that i could sell 80 tickets between me and Mike Verdi if they were to put us together in a match. It was my first bait and switch. It worked,we worked, and we moved on to a few wrestling schools when we were 15.

Question: Out of all the people who trained yo…

Today is a less than happy day because this day 20 years ago the wrestling world lost another one of it up in coming performers as he was only 30 years old when passed away his name was Jay Youngblood. Young wrestling fans may not know him well thats because he passed away but he was apart of a very popular tag team with Ricky Steamboat in JCP. They worked so well together that at the very first Starcade in 1983 they won the tag titles from the Brisco's. He had a big family in the business as his brother Mark & Chris were apart of the business as well as his father Ricky Romero & nephew Ricky Youngblood are or were in wrestling at one point. What made Steamboat & Jay a good team was they both had the same style they were quick & very athletic which made them a hit with the fans. Jay's biggest accomplishment was holding the NWA Tag Team Titles which he held 8 times (5 times with Steamboat) but every other time with a different partner. Though he won 6 singles ti…
