Have Goldust and Stardust gone insane?
The unlikely team of the former dashing Cody Rhodes and the always bizarre Goldust made strong waves this time last year. As a pair of brothers can typically be, they made for a great team, regaining their jobs in the WWE and defeating the first time losers, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
However, the glory wouldn’t last forever. After over half a year of solid victories, the team tasted defeat time and time again, leading Cody to believe he was the weak link of the team. When Goldust sought a new partner in crime, his brother revealed his bizarre side and debuted as Stardust.
The WWE Universe accepted the change, but no one was more delighted than Goldust, who embraced Stardust’s antics as the team amassed their first victory. Working their way through the tag team division, it was only necessary that the duo get a shot at The Uso’s WWE Tag Team Championships. However, when The Uso’s gained a count out victory, Goldust and Stardust weren’t ready to accept victory by countout. They then showed their unpredictability as they attacked The Uso’s, leaving them lying in the ring as they left the stunned arena.
What a lot of current fans don’t realize is that Goldust has never been a superstar to do what people expect of him. With Cody Rhodes by his side donning the Stardust embrace, Goldust now has a partner in crime, and with Goldust by his side, Stardust will be even more unstoppable than before. If anything has been proven by this team, it’s that their obsession is to be stars, and what star doesn’t have gold around their waist? How long until The Uso’s realize the threat that lie ahead of them, and how long before Goldust and Stardust are tired of being second best?
Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle) Vs. The Great Khali (w/ Ranjin Singh)WWE SmackDown [January 25th, 2008]
Following the admittance that Hornswoggle was the son of Finlay, life was made hell for Finlay as superstars would then focus on attacking Hornswoggle to get under the skin of Finlay. The Great Khali wasn’t above doing such a thing (no pun intended), putting Finlay in position to defend Hornswoggle in this Belfast Brawl. Although The Great Khali is a powerful force, Finlay would prove to be a hell of a road block!
“2 hours out from Rhode Island for Beyond Wrestling : Battle of New England and everyone is passed out (not in this picture : Kerry Awful, who is also passed out)."
What a car ride that must have been. Nick Iggy, Kerry Awful, John Wayne Murdoch, The Hooligans, and Davey Vega.
Kofi Kingston stops to think about his wrestling career.
Falls Count Anywhere Match:
The Big Show (w/ The Undertaker & Paul Bearer) Vs. The Rock
WWF Raw [August 30th, 1999]
When The Rock was screwed out of becoming the WWF Champion, Shane McMahon made the stipulation that The Rock would have to withstand a Falls Count Anywhere match with The Undertaker. Surprisingly, this wasn’t Teddy Long’s booking. However, prior to the match, The Undertaker tells The Big Show that he’ll be facing The Rock instead.
One thing I couldn’t quite get away from is that The Undertaker seems so off in everything he says. Taker cuts a weird, “what’s the next word again?” promo before the match, then refers to The Rock as “The Show”.
CM Punk, Suicide Kid, and Colt Cabana 
I love this photo. Three IWA Mid-South kids, just doing shows in small buildings with big aspirations. Suicide Kid recently wrestled in the IWA Mid-South King Of The Deathmatches tournament, Cabana appeared at IWA Mid-South’s “Summer Classic”, and CM Punk… well, he doesn’t wrestle anymore.
Ken Patera and The Grand Wizard [April 1978]
The formation of the bond shared between Ken Patera and The Grand Wizard came when the frustration of the Wizard finally boiled over. The Grand Wizard was managing “Superstar” Billy Graham at the time, and Bob Backlund had defeated Graham for the WWF Championship. The Grand Wizard sent several wrestlers after Backlund’s championship, since Graham had left the WWF, such as Don Muraco, Greg Valentine, and Ken Patera. Though none of them could defeat Backlund for the gold, The Grand Wizard did manage Ken Patera to defeat a former client of his, Pat Patterson, to become the 2nd Intercontinental Champion.
Once Vince McMahon got wind that he had a gay, black wrestler on his roster, he told creative to bury him immediately because it would hurt Linda McMahon’s campaign.
No, not really. He tore his ACL back in April.
Ace Perry Vs. Tripp Cassidy
NWP The Xero Hour [July 19th, 2014]
Never against accepting his fate as “the bad guy”, the man known as “The Blue Eyed Devil” proudly proclaims his stance as soon as he makes his entrance. Who he steps into the ring with is someone who’s the exact opposite, the personification of a white meat babyface, Ace Perry. He’s the cutie pie that all the girls love, and Tripp is the kid who smirks from ear to ear while the popular kids are giving him hell.
To say that these two know each other well is the understatement of the year. Having wrestled in various territories together, both Ace and Tripp understand their opponents in this match and have each other’s maneuvers scouted. Ace’s focus in this match is gaining a good clean victory, where as Tripp is intent on destroying the good nature of Ace by demeaning his shiny outlook.
NWA United States Champion Mangum T.A. 
In 1985, the NWA United States Championship was nestled safely on the shoulder of the wildly popular Magnum T.A. Not just one, either, but twice! First, T.A. defeated Wahoo McDaniel and ended his 5-month reign, only to kick off a 4-month reign of his own. When he was defeated in July by Tully Blanchard, Magnum’s relentless nature wouldn’t allow him to rest, as he chased the gold into a steel cage where Magnum defeated Tully the following November. Magnum’s 2nd reign as champion lasted from November of 1985 to May of 1986, when he was ultimately stripped of the title after attacking NWA president, Bob Geigel.
While the WWE has had its share of non-wrestlers-turned-Divas, perhaps none were more tantalizing and alluring than the sultry Maryse. Maryse was beautiful, had an amazing body, and she absolutely knew it. Sticking her hand out at the fans on her way to the ring, Maryse’s nature was never to gain adulation, but rather to shove it in the faces of what Tyler Breeze might today refer to as “uggo’s” that they would either never be what she is, or never get their hands on her!
The maniacal demeanor of #Spotlight will soon be accompanied by the ailing music of “Death Interrupted” by Marty Bates. The team had been using individual themes, but will now be led to the ring by a chorus of nightmares, much like the voices they leave on the minds of all their defeated opponents.

WWE Tag Team Champions Primo & Epico (w/ Rosa Mendez) [April 1st, 2012]
Does anyone recall how Primo, Epico, and Rosa Mendez were aligned? In late 2011, Hunico had unmasked and ended his feud with Sin Cara. Making his debut in the WWE was Epico, who had teamed with Hunico in FCW. Shortly afterward, Primo, who had disbanded from his tag team partner Zack Ryder (seriously) started coming out with the team, making them a trio. Within a month, Rosa Mendez joined Epico and Primo, who are real-life cousins, as they drifted from Hunico, who began teaming with Camacho.
The team of Primo & Epico were the hottest tag team in the WWE for some time. Possibly due to the lack of division, but also because they were fast, smart, had great ring presence, a good valet, and were believable. After only two months of teaming, Primo & Epico defeated Air Boom to become the WWE Tag Team Champions. The team had several successful title defenses against teams such as Jim Duggan and Santino Marella, Mason Ryan and Alex Riley, The Usos, Kofi Kingston & R-Truth, and the team of Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger.
In April, A.W. (Abraham Washington, remember him?) started coaching the team, who eventually joined All-World Promotions. Though the team lost the WWE Tag Team Championships on April 30th, they wouldn’t receive a re-match until No Way Out, where they competed in a fatal 4 way match to determine the new champs. A.W. turned on the team in the match and sided with The Prime Time Players, leaving Primo, Epico, and Rosa to fend for themselves.
