WGD Weekly with Steve & The Scum interview Jake Roberts

Another week gone that means another interview with a wrestler from the glory days of wrestling from my friends at WGD Weekly. Though it was short and I would have love to hear more about Jake Robert's wrestling career I am able to understand he is a busy man and we should be happy we got an interview at all. I am joking, these guys cover a lot of things a very short time which makes for a solid interview. They cover things like:
Jake's views on his father Grizzly SmithJake discuss some what the battle he faced with his personal demons and where some of those problems may be rootedJake speaks on booking in the GCW territory and how Jake came up with most thingsJake also covers his feuds with all the greats from Undertaker, Steamboat, Savage, Rude, & more
~~ Enjoy the interview with future WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts ~~





How I Would Book it Background...... Relaunch of ECW

Image
I am aware this post series has taken a big break since my last series when I showed How I would have booked the Bryan vs Orton feud. Now first I know numerous people have tried to recapture the success of the original ECW but it is hard and almost impossible to recapture that. Because of the time and the people involved and the stars were aligned for them to succeed and begin a revolution. Back in 2006 WWE decide to try and recreate the Revolution when they announced they decided they were bringing ECW back as a show. Boy was that a mistake because it started out good and different but then after a while ECW became a glorified training facility for future Smackdown & Raw Superstars.

Join me as I enter the old wrestling time machine to travel back in time to the year 2006 to try and stop WWE from killing the ECW name. I will have a balance of new and old, more then just one title, and little involvement with RAW & Smackdown brands. Hop on and let the ride back in time begin E…

Survivor Series Recall

Image
With Survivor Series being tomorrow I thought it'd be only fitting to do this one more time and look back at a Survivor Series from the past. Tonight we will be looking back at one of the biggest Survivor Series ever and even though people may have hated how the storyline went the importance of the show still showed. I speak of Survivor Series 2001 the night the business changed forever because it marked the end of ECW & WCW after "Team WWF" Won the match to "stay in business." Even though the Invasion Storyline was poorly booked and not given a proper amount of time still there is no taking away the achievements it brought namely Invasion PPV. The Invasion PPV holds record for most buyrates of a non-Wrestlemania PPV. Survivor Series 2001 changed the WWE and wrestling forever because it marked the start of a competition free wrestling industry. If you wish to relive this monumental event feel free to watch it below: ~~~ENJOY~~~

An Update on the Possible Sale of TNA

Image
As of this writing one party is currently out of the running for purchasing TNA, now this undisclosed party was never the leader but was one of the rumored buyers that surfaced online. A different party however that met with TNA executives a few weeks ago has been the key party still interested is still in play. The main company is still in the mix and are talking positively about making the deal but it doesn't disclose a specific time period within which they want to close the deal. The new details that surfaced are that the undisclosed party wants full ownership of TNA as oppose to buying a percentage of the company.

The thing I believe that maybe holding things up is that it seems like the Carter Family may want to retain majority ownership of the company. But like I mentioned above the possible buyers want full ownership of the company not a percentage.

Also an interesting note, if the sale takes Jeff Jarrett is expected to gain even more power within the company since "h…

Creepiest Characters in Wrestling

Image
This dude is one scary looking guy and totally fits the description of being one of wrestling's creepiest characters. Damien Demento was said to be created to mock Phil Theis who was Damien Demento in WWE because Vince thought Phil was crazy so the character fit. Though Damien Main Evented the first Raw ever against The Undertaker the gimmick never really caught on with the fans and Damien's stay was short lived in WWE. But that didn't not stop him from becoming one of the strangest, craziest, character in wrestling history. Below is footage of Demento's stay in the Sports Entertainment Organization:

The Future is Coming: WWE Developmental

Image
This post series will be highlighting the different talents that are showing there stuff down in the WWE performance center. Many of which the fans of WWE aren't aware before they debut with the main roster. I going to try and help bring some knowledge to this are willing to watch the matches I provide featuring current WWE developmental performers. Tonight we will start with "The Man that Gravity forgot and everyone will remember" former NXT Tag Team Champion Adrian Neville. Adrian has made quite an impact in NXT with his unique style and that makes him a very different and unique member of the WWE. Just watch as Adrian Neville who was once known as Pac dazzles the fans with what he can do in the ring: (I tried finding both Pac & Neville footage but footage of Neville is hard to come by)

Random Wrestling Video of the Day: Bret Hart's Career Ends

Image
In this segment here on Evolution of Wrestling I will be choosing just a random wrestling video from Youtube to post here on the site. If you have any suggestions about the next video comment below.

Bret "Hitman" Hart otherwise known as the Best there is best there was and the best there ever will be, had his career ending concussion that ultimately ruined his life. In 1999 Goldberg faced off against the Hitman at Starrcade. In the match Goldberg hit Bret Hart with a thrust kick that gave a concussion, which was the first of many. Hart suffered up to three extra concussions within matches over the time of that day along with the days immediately following Starrcade, having not been aware of the extent of his injuries. Because of all this consussions Bret got post-concussion-syndrome which forced him to retire from wrestling.

Regal Gets Praised

Image
In an article on WWE.Com Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Antonio Cesaro, among others praised Regal for such things as Passion for the business, Helping  along young talent, Regals ability to adapt to the times, among other things. Also Jim Ross praised William Regal for his commentary on NXT saying that Regal is one of the most underrated guys behind the announce booth.


All this praising comes after Regal was the special referee in a Dark Main Event match between John Cena & Alberto Del Rio in which Cena won. Post-Match Regal praised Cena's wrestling ability before Regal attacked Cena. Cena then fought back and hit Regal with a Attitude Adjustment.

How I Would Book Part 5....... Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan

December 2nd Monday Night Raw: 2 weeks before TLC
Highlights of Vince McMahon’s return to RAW from last week, announcers push the tension between Triple H & Big Show. Triple H comes out and he says “Since my father-in law isn’t here I have full power and Big Show if you show up here tonight I will have you arrested and put in jail like you showed be. Show I hate to tell you but I am not a wrestler anymore so I will not be fighting you at TLC so if you want to try and sue me go ahead you big dumb idiot. Announcers show us a tout sent out by the Rhodes Brothers about what Triple H wanted them to do for them to get their job back, also Michael Cole shares details of the interview he conducted with The Rhodes Brothers on why they walk out. We find out the Rhodes Brother were told to get their back they had to screw Daniel Bryan which is why they walked out. Rhodes Brothers def. (c) The Shield to win the Tag Team Titles, Orton vs Bryan contract signing announced for next week.

Random Video of the Day: Christian's Leaves, Debut, and Comeback

Image
In this segment here on Evolution of Wrestling I will be choosing just a random wrestling video from Youtube to post here on the site. If you have any suggestions about the next video comment below.
In 2005 Christian left WWE for TNA and became one of the top stars in TNA History, be a multi time NWA TNA Champion. Then in 2008 Christian left TNA and joined back up with the WWE and since then he has won Three World Titles and the Intercontinental Title.


Raw Teases Wyatt Family V.S Shield

Image
To End off Raw yesterday it was a 2 on 3 Handicap Match where the Shield faced CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. During the Match the Wyatt's Family picture flash happens and Luke Harper and Erik Rowan are in the ring. But before the Wyatt's could get there hands on Punk and Bryan, the Shield stepped in there way and the Wyatt's and Shield argued over who got to beat Bryan and Punk. But before lone the talking stopped and the Wyatt Family and the Shield were brawling. This went on until Bray Wyatt got his Family and the Shield to team up to beat on Punk and Bryan . But Before any damage could be done the Uso's and Rhodes Dynasty run down for the save and a 6-on-6 brawl end Raw.
What could this mean, might we see a six man tag match between the Wyatt's and Shield or maybe a Twelve man tag match with the Shield and Wyatt's teaming against Punk, Bryan, the Usos, and Rhodes Dynasty.

Total Divas Viewship Comes Out, and Mid-Season Premiere Rundown

Last Night's Mid-Season Premiere of Total Divas was watched by 1.3 Million people on the E! network.
The show showed Nikki getting annoyed and frustrated at Eva Marie for trying to take Nikki's spot, Natalya struggles to get over her accident in a match against Trinity (Naomi) and contemplates not going on at SummerSlam, and Arianne tries to cope with her anger issues after embarrassing Vinny as well as flipping out on a guy in a car for going to slow.
In the end Natalya had a good match with Brie, and it was found that Nikki's boyfriend John Cena would need surgery for a triceps tear and would be injured for six months.

Superstar Recall: Red Rooster

Image
This man like many others had made a name for himself in other promotions, & was highly touted in the business. But WWE didn't care about Terry's past they wanted to make him what ever they wanted. So they did and Terry Taylor debuts in WWF as Red Rooster. A complete joke of a character and a waste of a possible top heel. Due to Terry's talent he did end up getting the gimmick over which a credit to his talent as a performer.

Random Wrestling Video of the Day: Chikara Big Swing

Image
In this new segment here on Evolution of Wrestling I will be choosing just a random wrestling video from Youtube to post here on the site. If you have any suggestions about the next video comment below.
As you all probably know Antonio Cesaro is becoming more known in WWE for his long big swings. But none of his big swing were as long as the on he did in Chiakara long ago.

Coproate Kane is Best for Business

Image
Last week on Raw Big Show took on the Shield and Randy Orton in a handicap Match, and just when it looked like Show would take care of Orton Kane's music hits here comes a 7 foot tall man in a suit and tie. Yes Kane cam to the ring with a suit and tie on. That distraction proved to be all the Shield and Orton needed to get the advantage. Once Kane got to ringside he proceeded to throw chairs to the Shield to use on Show.
Now in an interview with Michael Cole on WWE.com Triple H stated that Kane's role in the Authority was the Director of Operations. This change in Kane is great as for 16 yrs he's always been the monster Kane but now we have a change in Kane that can lead him to new heights in WWE if the angle is done right.

How I Would Book it Part 4........ Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan

November 18th Monday Night Raw
We start the show with Daniel Bryan having an announcement regarding his Survivor Series Tag Team partners. Daniel says “I have thought long and hard about who to pick, I thought who hates Randy Orton, The Shield & Triple H just as much as I do. Well I think I found my team mates (Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, & R-Truth walk to the ring and are Daniel’s partners.) Randy my team will win at Survivor Series and I will pick the stipulation for our match at TLC when I finally take the title away from you.”
Announcers continue to speculate what Triple H told the Rhodes family they had to do last week and if it has anything to do with the Elimination Tag Match at Survivor Series. Randy walks out and says “Daniel you have shown one thing since SummerSlam that’s you don’t know when to quit. You don’t know when you should say I have had enough and say to me you’re the better man, which must mean you like getting your ass kicked because that’s what I …

Vince McMahon to Return Soon!

Image
Vince McMahon's return to WWE TV has been talked about a lot in the last few months. As it was said he may return the night after Summerslam, Night Of Champions, and Hell in a Cell but all for none as we haven't seen Vince return.
But it's been reported that Vince McMahons return to TV to most likely feud with Triple H over power of WWE will happen most likely in January. The Plan was to always have him comeback in January to prepare for WrestleMania, but since the ratings had been slumping in the summer the rumors of Vince coming back sooner began, but after Cena's return boosted the ratings up the WWE can keep with there plans to make Vince comeback either on January 6th or January 27th which is the night after Royal Rumble.

How I would book it Part 3....... Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan

October 21st Monday Night Raw: Can the McMahon’s intimidate the Big Show
(Made public the week prior that Daniel Bryan and Nikki are engaged) Triple H & Stephanie are in the ring and Triple H says “Welcome everyone to the show that we own and me and my wife will not tolerate disrespect. Stephanie is holding a briefcase which Triple H tells her to open and hand him what inside, she does and it’s a piece of paper. Hunter precedes he states “Big Show I have your contract right here I hold your career in my hands and you will do what we tell you to do or you will not have a contract anymore. Because, there are two things we won’t tolerate disrespect & insubordination, tonight Big Show you will see whose boss.” Contract Signing is made for later, The Shield def. Kofi Kingston & Prime Time Players (Ambrose pins Kofi), Brad Maddox is out for the contract signing for the Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton match at Hell in a Cell: Both men are out the tension is there but both men sign the…

He's Back He's Back Mr. Pacman Jones

Image
On Monday Dixie Carter released a youtube video stating that she got a call from a former World Champion stating that "He would be at Impact in Cincinnati." This got some excitement for the show up until it was released two days later that the returning World Champion actually was a former World Tag Team Champion Pacman Jones.
After a brawl ended with Robert Roode and Kurt Angle was broken up, Bad Influence started to antagonize the Pacman Jones and his Bengals teammate DeQuin Evans. They eventually pushed both Jones and Evans, which got Jones and Evans to jump the rail.


Bad Influence each attempted to execute a suplex on them, but Jones and Evans reversed the move with Scoop Slams, then celebrated in front of the hometown fans.

Just so you know back in 2007 Pacman Jones was suspended from the NFL because of off field violations. After this got released, Pacman signed a contract to TNA Wrestling (but could not wrestler because of limitations from the NFL.) So it seemed a l…

Total Divas to Return

Image
WWE's hit reality show Total Diva's will be returning this Sunday on the E! Network. After a great 1st half season where Total Divas scored an average Rating of 1.32 which is good for a wrestling reality show considering it got better than TNA's usual Broadcasts.

Total Divas Mid-Season Premiere Preview-
Eva Marie's increase in popularity begins to make Nikki feel threatened. Ariane works to control her temper. Nattie has fears regarding her return to the ring. 

Missed Oppurtunities: Austin V.S. Hogan Wrestlemania X8

In 2002 we saw the return of the NWO and they were brought into WWF/E by Vince McMahon because he said I want to destroy my creation so Ric Flair couldn't.                                               When they came to WWF they targeted the two biggest stars in the company, The Rock & Stone Cold Steve Austin. When the NWO first came back it was thought that Austin would face Hogan and Rock would face Kevin Nash. But Austin didn't like the idea of him facing Hogan because he thought he would have to put Hogan over. Because of that Austin v.s Hogan at WrestleMania X8 didn't happen and instead one of the most memorable matches in the Rock’s career happened when he faced and beat Hulk Hogan.                                                                                                                         Instead of going against Hogan at Mania Austin faced a out of shape Scott Hall in a average match. Now we can only wonder what would've happened if Austin faced…

History Lesson: WWE V.S. TNA

Image
In 2001 Vince McMahon bought wrestling by buying, ECW and WCW. WWF at the time had no competition, then TNA came about in 2002. Though they were not competition for WWF yet they would become competition in 2010.
On Jan 4th 2010 TNA and WWE Raw faced off on Monday and TNA pulled out all the ammo, as they had Jeff Hardy, RVD, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Scott Hall, and X-Pac come in. WWE countered with Bret Hart, so it was really hard to choose which show to watch, but in my case after I saw Bret comeback make amends with Shawn Michaels then I went to TNA to see RVD, Jeff Hardy and Hulk Hogan come in. So really in my opinion TNA was pretty equal with WWE, especially when AJ Styles was with Ric Flair and they formed Fourtune and then RVD won the title. Once TNA brought in the ECW Originals or EV 2.0 to have a feud with Fourtune TNA was starting a down fall, but I was still hook with Abyss saying the 10-10-10 surprise. At 10-10-10 I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the s…

Musician to buy TNA?

Image
As of now TNA's future may see Carter's involved in it as it seems the Carters will be selling majority ownership of TNA. This sell is coming after possibly one of the if not the worst year in TNA history, as TNA has been losing a lot of money via going on the road and not producing many live PPVs.
There have been many rumours about who will buy TNA, some examples are, Jeff Jarrett, Eric Bishcoff, Viacom, WWE, and even Jake Roberts. But now it seems that the person at the top of the buyers list is Smashing Pumpkins Guitarist/Singer and owner of Resitance Pro Wrestling (out of Chicago) Billy Corgan.
A Spokesperson for Corgan told Newsday this about Corgan buying TNA “There is no reason to comment on rumors. Billy is completely focused on Resistance Pro’s upcoming 2nd anniversary.” The Spokesperson never denied these rumors which doesn't mean Crogan is totally out of the Picture.
That is because he has been reportedly meeting with TNA officials.
Corgan also has reportedly…

Moment in Time 14

Image
This blog series is all about looking back a memorable moments and or matches from the history of wrestling. These moments/matches are the ones that make people say I don't believe that, "Oh My God", or even a moment that you remember where you were when you first saw it.
Moment number fourteen started a pop culture phenomenon called Hulkamania, this era boosted the WWF to new heights and helped the WWF become the #1 Wrestling Company in the United States. But before Hulkamania said to eat your vitamins and say your prayers, Mr. Hulk Hogan had to defeat the Iron Sheik in January of 1984. After Hogan won the Match Hulkamania ran wild for 9 years ending at King of the Ring 1993 after he lost to Yokzuna and left the WWF.

Wyatts Attack WWE's Top Stars

Image
As seen last week on Raw the Wyatt Family assault not just CM Punk but Daniel Bryan also, the reason of the assault is unknown at this time. The only Clue as to why the reasoning behind the attacks is the leader of the Wyatt Family Bray Wyatt saying "The Devil Made me do it" before hitting his signature move Sister Abigail.
The Quote "the Devil made me do it" may mean that someone is behind the Wyatts' attack on Punk and Bryan. If I were to say who was behind the Wyatts attacks I would have to say either Paul Heyman as he may want payback on CM Punk or I would say Kane only because of the reference in the quote to the devil.

Who do you think is behind the attacks on Punk and Bryan? Post you think it is in the comments below.
