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.
Ric Flair Vs. Goldberg
WCW Nitro [March 9th, 1999]
Less than a week prior to WCW Uncensored, where Ric Flair would be taking on Hulk Hogan in a First Blood Cage Match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, Flair took on the unstoppable Goldberg. While Flair was known for his posturing and Goldberg was known for his brute strength, both men would prove that they didn’t rely on either tactic. Flair’s headgames didn’t psyche out Goldberg, and Goldberg’s powerful demeanor didn’t phase Flair. This isn’t the best match of all-time, but it’s a fantastic show where neither men come out looking bad. Proof that Flair is indeed the best player in the game, and Goldberg could work a great contest.
HEY EVERYONE! LOOK! LOOK! FINALLY.
THANK YOU assaultdriver720 FOR SENDING THIS TO ME.
I know there are more than plenty of people waiting for this. Well, the wait is over!
Ryback posts a message to the fans [August 27th, 2014]
The Big Guy is undergoing surgery, but promises to come back. This (possibly under the influence [for medical purposes]) video is actually kind of cute, in a weird, he-would-eat-me kind of way.
That’s what its all about, man.
This is amazing. I love seeing Kane hugging this kid. This is fucking adorable.

"Can I return my shirt for a refund?"
Yes. Once the shirt is returned, I will refund the money.
"So, there is no way I can get a shirt after the time period is up?"
Okay…there is ONE way and it is strictly left to chance. Since I will only be accepting returns for a cash refund and not a size exchange, if a shirt is returned and it happens to be in your size, I will sell it to you.

Jake “The Snake” Roberts reportedly unconscious [August 28th, 2014]
According to Ringside News:
WWE Hall of Famer Jake “the Snake” Roberts is currently unconscious in a hospital in Las Vegas, according to Raj Giri of WrestlingINC. Roberts flew to Vegas yesterday for an event but passed out on the plane. He has been unconscious since.
An ambulance took Roberts from the plane to a nearby hospital. Giri adds that Jake reportedly has double pneumonia. Doctors have said that his lungs are filled with fluid and there is a mass on his brain.
This is so shitty, dude. To watch this year’s Hall Of Fame and see both Jake and Warrior make amends with their mistakes in the past and their futures as leaders of the new world of legends, it was an amazing feeling. You were proud to see pro wrestling’s family together again. I really, really, really hope Jake Roberts is okay. God damn, not another one…
Open Finger Gloves Spike Nail Deathmatch:
Seishi Takeda Vs. Abdullah Kobayashi
BJW [February 26th, 2012]
There’s literally no way to describe what you’ll see when you click the play button. There’s glass- lots of it, as the entire ring is surrounded by light tubes. By the end, there’s not a single tube left as both men destroy each other’s complexions. Judging by the looks of both men in the beginning, this clearly isn’t their first rodeo. However, by the end, it may have very well been their last. Enjoy this one… if you dare!
I despise blatant negativity. It’s the one thing that drives me absolutely insane. I don’t like a lot of aspects about a lot of things, and I generally poke fun at everything from my favorite wrestlers to ones I like a bit less, but when I see an article or even just a tweet where it’s being said that everything just sucks, it bothers me.
Firstly, if everything sucks, why do people watch the show EVERY week? If EVERYthing sucks, then you wouldn’t have a reason to watch! Secondly, NO, not everything sucks! There are some little things that suck or that you would have liked to have seen done differently, but everything?! The WWE has such a solid product right now and it blows my mind. Things have gotten so great, and there are several long-term storylines that develop week after week. Solid in-ring stuff, lots of Diva action, a great tag division, plenty of solid good guys and bad guys, but what do you see? Shit like:
- "This is the worst RAW of the year. They’ve all been bad so far, but this one is the worst!"
- "Splitting up The Shield has made me want to stop watching wrestling. Why can’t they all advance together?"
- "I wish there were more female wrestlers, but I’m sick of A.J. and Paige."
- "I want to go to (show), but I’m not sure if it’s worth it."
- "BATISTA won the Rumble?! Fuck this, I’m done watching wrestling."
Admittedly, I was pissed when Batista won the Royal Rumble. It drove me INSANE, but it made so much sense with the storyline (Triple H is the Authority, and his “buddy” won the Rumble match) and especially, when WrestleMania’s main event went down. However, when you sit back and just WATCH, don’t analyze, but WATCH. ALLOW yourself to be entertained. ACCEPT that YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY GODDAMN PERSON WATCHING, and BELIEVE that every guy there is doing what they can to entertain you when they could actually be doing a lot less and still have a job, it PAINS me when people can’t enjoy a single Goddamn thing.
It’s wrestling. Just watch it, and enjoy it. It’s okay when things are goofy. It’s alright when it’s not exactly what you want. It sucks when people get fired, injured, pushes are ended, tag teams break up, etc. But, it’s wrestling. It’s just… wrestling.
Thank you, dude. I really try to be as eclectic as possible with what I post. Most of my meetings have just been happenstance. I’ve gone to literally hundreds of shows and only at a few of them have I had these great, wild experiences. I hope you guys get more shows in your area, and thanks again for being cool!
#Spotlight [August 10th, 2014]
The group of #Spotlight has evolved from a team of star-studded superstars to a group of maniacal madmen. What was once known as a Hollywood troupe has become a walking horror movie, with director Jason Saint leading the pack.
Chase Matthews has been titled the Mass Murder Suspect by Jason Saint, assumed to be as such since Matthews has incapacitated several opponents, a bevy of which have since disappeared. Matthews is the current PWAS CruiserCore Champion, and seeks to obtain gold within the ranks of IWA Mid-South and Evolution Pro Wrestling.
The man to his left is none other than The Blue-Eyed Devil, Tripp Cassidy. Named as such for his handsome looks but torrid demeanor, Cassidy is a former victim of bullying who has now turned victor. Earlier this year, Cassidy defeated Christian Skyfire for the EPW Openweight Championship, a title which he continues to hold.
The next man in the line-up is the lead man in “The Crow Show”, Josh Crow. Crow is the step-up guy to derail the John Wanye Murdoch train, hand-picked after Murdoch told Saint he wanted to do things his way from then on. After Murdoch was defeated at King Of The Deathmatches, Saint realized his power and recruited Crow, who has since given Murdoch a run for his money in every contest the two have shared.
"The Real Deal" Derek Neal is the last of the superathletes. Neal is the only man in IWA Mid-South history to hold as many consecutive victories over the former King Of The Deathmatches. Mitch Page. Page has overcome light tubes, barbed wire, thumbtacks, tables, steel chairs, but has ultimately not overcome the challenge of Derek Neal. It literally took a fist of fire to put Neal out in the only one-on-one competition where Neal was pinned. Derek’s crusade has yet to finish, and won’t until he’s deemed the leader of the IWA Mid-South revolution.
And finally, kneeling front and center, is the leader of this pack. Jason Saint originally started in the wrestling business to begin to expand his already bulging resume, but has since become a strong leader in the professional wrestling business. Having amassed several victories in numerous companies, Saint’s ride to the top has yet to be halted as he continues to deliver crazed and poised athletes who have gotten the job done at every turn.
Other affiliates include Zodiak, who Saint hired earlier this Summer to take out Mitch Page when Page tried to expand into the Evolution Pro Wrestling territory. Another is “Good Looks” Donnie Brooks, who is only a month short of becoming the newest member when he debuts. Though he doesn’t fit the #Horrorshow mold that #Spotlight is known for, Brooks is the guy who will keep the fans swayed in favor, and who will earn all the extra cash from the girls in the crowd by being the new heartthrob on the scene. Ludark Shaitan is another affiliate, who continues to make others remember her name in Mexico by panting many a canvas blood red. With this year’s final quarter coming shortly, one has to wonder if the derailment of #Spotlight possible. Considering the recent history and the fact that so many formidable names have popped up for the group, chances are looking very, very slim for anyone who steps in the way of this #Horrorshow!

Victoria Vs. Trish Stratus
WWE Heat [January 2nd, 2005]
Kicking off the very first Heat of 2005, the WWE issued a lethal dose of Stratusfaction! Although the two had been at odds in the past, the fans were in favor of Victoria this time around as both had changed their demeanors. Victoria was now the favorite, as Trish had developed a mean streak of her own. At one point, it looks like Victoria goes for a Canadian Destroyer, which might have had a new meaning had she hit it on the Canadian Diva! Enjoy this one!
"No Beard The Pirate" by Kris Pavone
After spending several years as a WWE superstar, Caylen Croft (also known to some as Chris Cage) has taken his talents to the literary ring. His book No Beard The Pirate is a tale about a pirate whose beard is suddenly missing, which leads him and his merry band of pirate pals on an adventure to retrieve it. The book is a children’s book and is available on both Amazon and at Mascot Books!
Now that JTG isn’t a part of the WWE anymore, he’s taking his athletic talents to the race track.
No, NO, DAMMIT, NO PUN INTENDED. GOD DAMMIT.
