Just minding my own business when Abyss hit me with a steel chair…
Abyss, trying to ruin the good looks of Donnie Brooks.
That’s a REAL hard question to answer, for real. There are so many amazing wrestlers in the world that it’s impossible to answer without not including someone. 15, though, dude? Shit. Um… Well, firstly, I feel like in the area, John Wayne Murodch is gaining steam quicker than ANYBODY. Reed Bentley, Jonathan Gresham, Chase Matthews, AR Fox, Michael Elgin (of course), MsChif (for years, one of the best), the Briscoes, R.D. Evans, Uhaa Nation, Ricochet, and I’m sure there’s plenty more, but like I said, I don’t really know. I don’t know everything about the indies, but from what I’ve seen, all of the above mentioned are great.
There are two types of fans.
Be the Roman fan.
That’s what you could do.
Give them a choice.
And breathing room.
That is all.
I understand why fans touch wrestlers. It’s amazing that you’re that close to someone you look up to. It’s awesome that someone on TV that’s such a badass is RIGHT THERE. You want to touch them the way you’d pinch yourself in a dream to see if it’s real.
But, fuck, imagine going to do your job and everyone is tapping and tagging at you. It’s gotta be annoying. I hate when fans touch me and I’m fucking nobody. It happens maybe once a month, but for Roman, it’s like 50-100 times a night and that’s gotta be irritating as fuck. A fist bump? Absolutely. That’s like saying “we gonna do this?” instead of “WE GONNA DO THIS”. It’s why guys like CM Punk punch people in the face. Eventually, someone gets harassed so much that it’s like “GAWD DAAMMAAAAAT”.
Me? I’d just snap a picture if my camera was ready. If not, just stand there making faces at the camera like every fan I’ve ever been annoyed by. Moral of the story? Don’t touch wrestlers. They don’t know where yo nasty ass hands been.
On a scale from 1-10, with one being untalented and 10 being talented, Teddy sits at about a 5. Good enough to have good matches, but so fucking stupid that he can’t contain himself. His filterless antics cause people to get hurt, and his ceaseless asshole nature causes him to burn a lot of bridges.
My friend Derek almost fought him in a Kroger once. Teddy was walking around in a pair of pajama pants, shirtless, in animal house slippers at 3AM. I don’t remember why Derek was there. Anyway, someone told Teddy he couldn’t do that, Teddy got an attitude and acted shitty about it, so Derek pretty much threatened to kill him if he didn’t stop acting like a dickhead. Teddy left.
I met him a few times in OVW and he was cool to me. I never saw him be rude to the fans, but I always heard from people that he was shitting on his own contract by basically ignoring people at practice when they’d try to help him. Someone was quoted in saying that he would make that mistake one time backstage at WWE, and sure enough, he did, and got fired. When you’ve been booted from every major promotion and pissed off virtually everyone you’ve worked with, it’s not a good sign. Luke Gallows mentioned him once, which is bizarre that Luke ever shit on anybody, and said he hated working with Teddy. That’s story enough right there.
Personal opinion? Decent worker if he’d slow down and stop doing everything he knows how to do in every match. There’s a difference between being a show stealer and being a show off. Ziggler calls himself a show off, but he’s a show stealer. Teddy calls himself a show stealer, but he’s a show off. Jack Evans wrestled circles around him and Teddy said he either wanted to be in a tag team with him or never work with him again. When Jack was asked what he thought, Jack shrugged and said “good fuckin’ riddance”.
Headcanon: The she that broke Harper was the Chikara Grand Championship, after failing to win her, Brodie went mad, Bray found him and turned him into Luke Harper.
This seems accurate enough to me.
I miss the hell out of Kanyon. He entertained the hell out of me, no matter what he was doing. Unfortunately, I only had the chance to see him live once, in either a dark or Velocity taping match. I remember coming past the Bradley Center that day, and he was the only guy outside at the fenced in parking, signing shit for people.
Miss this guy!! :-/
Jesus, like… why?
Andy Kaufman is wheeled away from the wrestling ring after receiving a devastating piledriver from Jerry “The King” Lawler.
I figured out the problem with Erick Rowan.
Its 2014, he just doesn’t fit in. If ever there was a throwback to the territory days, it’s Erick Rowan. He should be coming out in trunks and a fur vest with Skandor Akbar as his manager. He seems so out of place teaming with Luke Harper against The Usos because he should be teaming with Nord The Barbarian against The Samoan Swat Team. WWE Tag Team champion? I guess, but really he should be going after the WCCW, UWF, and AWA belts. Eventually he’ll get signed to the WWF. He can go over there with Nord and they’ll be The Berzerkers, Nord & Ruud. After a feud with The Bushwhackers and a few failed tag title shots against the likes of Demolition, The Hart Foundation, and former AWA rivals Hawk & Animal, Ruud would get fired after a backstage dispute with agent Tony Garea. Worry not about our red bearded friend, he would be welcomed into the sweet loving arms of World Championship Wrestling. There he would be rechristened Ruud The Viking and he would make his debut by attacking Sting on an episode of WCW Saturday Night. He would spend the next five Saturdays destroying jobbers, sometimes two or three at once. He’ll finally have his first high profile match when he goes up against Flyin’ Brian on Saturday Night, but he wouldn’t get the victory this time as we see a recuperated and fresh Sting running to the ring at the speed of light *the crowd erupts* Ruud cuts him off with a knee lift and clubs to the back BUT TO NO AVAIL! Sting is having none of this, he blocks a right and begins to kick and chop the crimson bearded giant into the corner *STINGER SPLASH* he launches the Norse warrior into the opposing corner *STINGER SPLASH*. Sting howls and beats his chest as the massive Ruud ducks for cover… the stage is set, Sting vs Ruud The Viking: Halloween Havoc ‘91. What will happen when the Nordic giant goes one on one with The Stinger?
Ruud loses, we ignore him at conventions and I become the only person who ever posts about him.
This is the most amazing thing I’ve read in a long time. Deadly accuracy.
This is disgusting. We all know you have tits, Nikki. You don’t have to shove them in our faces 24/7.
cool how about you not police how a grown woman dresses
"This is disgusting."
She’s actually contractually obligated to shove her tits in your face, so take that shit up with management, or better yet, the WWE universe that deemed women’s wrestling a sex party some time in the mid 2000s.
But being obsessed with Jeffrey Dahmer and TJ Lane - people who actually killed other people - is a-okay. Tits? Disgusting. Murder? Perfectly normal.
Fucking warped-ass Tumblr users, man…
I’m confused. Why are people offended by this? It’s a woman with boobs. Is that such a huge, terrifying thing for people to see? Nikki Bella is a beautiful gal with a great body, so what if she wants to show it off?
Also, I don’t know if she’s “contractually obligated” to shove anything in anyone’s face. I can’t imagine a WWE contract says, “every so often, make sure we can see how big and shiny your boobs are”. Either way, God damn, Tumblr is up its own ass sometimes. Mellow the fuck out.
I could not possibly care less about Sting.
Today, I learned The Rock used to be addicted to heroin, but after he hit rock bottom, it was time to lay the smack down. It took a dark turn when he was selling his candy ass on Know Your Role Blvd.
Actually, no. I know that guy really well. His name is Nick, he’s a friend of mine from Texas. When he went to the Houston Airport to meet The Rock, he simply wanted to get a picture with him. An airport worker told him he couldn’t go past a certain point without a ticket, so Nick explained that he just wanted to meet The Rock and come back. The worker said she’d see what she could do, but the airport worker told The Rock that Nick had claimed to be family. When The Rock got creeped about it and tweeted about it, Nick tweeted him to say “hey, no, I never said that, I just wanted a picture with you”. The Rock went down and met him, and tweeted a picture of the two of them together, obviously having not been creeped out about it.
Nick posted the picture of A.J. with the caption “no touching”. I asked him what had happened and he told me that she’d explained to another fan before him that someone else had behaved inappropriately when taking a picture with her (she didn’t explain what had happened). Nick said he understood and apologized for them, which she said was okay and she knew it wasn’t every fan. She then snapped a picture with him and thanked him for understanding.
Nick’s not a bad dude, or a “creepy fan” by any means, nor did he try to make A.J. look bad. He was merely pointing out that wrestling fans cause wrestlers like A.J. to be paranoid.
I hope the suit gets set on fire on live TV. I despise the bunny, and not even just because it’s a guy in a bunny suit. I hate it for all the ridiculous references that commentary makes. “Bunnymania”, “Peter Cottontail”, “that damn Easter bunny”, “bunny this”, “bunny that”, it’s as if there’s just a bunny in the ring and the other 3 wrestlers involved are just random jobbers. It’s fucking repugnant.
