FCW Tag Team Champions Bo Dallas and Husky Harris with Mike “I.R.S.” Rotundo [2012]
The team of Bo Dallas and Husky Harris are actually 2-time FCW Tag Team Champions. They first won the titles in 2009 after defeating Justin Gabriel and Kris Logan (better-known as Brian Cage) under the names Bo Rotundo and Duke Rotundo. By the time their second reign came around, Duke had a name change, now going by the “The Army Tank with a Ferrari Engine”, Husky Harris. The two held the gold for the second time for 42 days.
They’re seen here with their father, Mike “I.R.S.” Rotundo, who is the father to two very strange sons, much like the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, has a claim to. These days, Bo is spreading his condescending inspiration to Raw audiences worldwide, while Duke/Husky is more familiar to wrestling fans as Bray Wyatt.

+ Rob Van Dam Vs. Sabu [August 8th, 2010]
These two have seen the world together. Both men have been simultaneously active on rosters spanning from Japan to WCW, from ECW to the WWE, and finally, together in TNA. Though TNA’s Hardcore Justice was no ECW One Night Stand, the fans were treated to the same hardcore roughhouse feast that both Van Dam and Sabu were never shy to compete in.

+ WWE Intercontinental Champion Christian and Bret “Hit Man” Hart [July 23, 2012]
At the 1000th episode of Raw, several legendary wrestlers from the WWF heyday reappeared to have guest appearances on the show. WWE Hall Of Famer Bret “Hit Man” Hart appeared as the guest time keeper in the WWE Intercontinental Championship match (a title Bret himself held twice during his time in the WWF) pitting the champion Christian against The Miz. The Miz won that match with the Skull Crushing Finale, making him the 25th (and, to date, final) Triple Crown Champion in the WWE.

#Spotlight has become #Horrorshow [September 14th, 2014]

The air has changed. The leaves are getting lighter. The air is less humid. The sun retires earlier. Fall is coming, and the #Spotlight has dimmed. Bring on the #Horrorshow.

Director Jason Saint started his journey in professional wrestling as a means of expanding his showtime resume. After some success, the scene began to dwindle as time took its wear on Saint. The frequent travels, the long hours on the road, the desperation in achievement became too much as Saint teetered on the brink of insanity. Fighting it back for as long as he could, he started to recall the days of his youth when he was taunted, bullied, and told he simply “couldn’t”. The voices returned, this time manifesting from overbearing classmates to en masse from venue to venue as each crowd taunted his efforts to defeat his enemies.

Finally, the insanity was embraced, as Saint went from being an acclaimed Hollywood a-list director to being a sleepless madman, hellbent on revenge. No longer was #Spotlight a haven for future stars of the industry, but now each begotten member of the rosters he was a part of would be welcome with open arms. The leaderless would become legion, as Zodiak, Josh Crow, Tripp Cassidy, Chase Matthews, and Derek Neal, formerly washed over and glanced past would now gleam in the darkness. #Spotlight has become #Horrorshow, and the question now is, who’s the next target? At IWA Mid-South’s 600th show, Chase Matthews teamed with Thunderkitty to defeat Joseph Schwartz and the 2014 Queen Of The Deathmatches, Randi West. Later, Josh Crow defeated Aaron Anders, seemingly with ease. At EPW’s Befuddled Fest show, Tripp Cassidy defeated his former White America teammate, Josh Crane. Last night, at Furious Wrestling Society’s “A Series Of Violent Events”, the violence continued as Chase Matthews scored a clean victory over Christian Skyfire, leaving him in a heap as the two celebrated to the back.

With a victorious streak over several formidable opponents, #Horrorshow has proven to be a blockbuster event, as the Summer fades into Autumn. Will this be the Autumn to remember, or the Fall of pro wrestling as we know it?

Stan Hansen Vs. Mitsuharu Misawa
AJPW [August 30th, 1992]

You don’t realize how real this match gets until about the 6:15 point. Stan Hansen had a worldwide reputation, especially exhibited in Japan, of being tough-as-nails, fearless, and unrockable. In this match, at the aforementioned point, Hansen gets rocked, and things intensify more and more as the match goes on. By the 15:30 point, the two have been grappling, striking, and smashing each other to the point of exhaustion, and the match is only halfway over. Enjoy this one, just… try to empathize. These guys are rocking from bell to bell, and neither had it in them to give in at all.

+ Referee “Good Looks” Donnie Brooks [September 13th, 2014]
Other companies may have better referees, but they certainly don’t have better looks. “Good Looks” Donnie Brooks owed PWA officials a favor, so he donned the zebra stripes and officially brought them in as this season’s hottest look.

If you don’t think this is the cutest thing, then I have no idea who you are and I’m not sure that I want to.

THE FRENCH ANGEL

Maurice Tillet also known as the French Angel, was a professional wrestler. As a child he was nicknamed “French Angel” for his angelic face. But when Tillet turned 17, he began to notice swelling in his feet and hands. The doctor diagnosed with acromegaly - a condition usually caused by a tumor on the pituitary gland. This results in bone overgrowth and thickening.

He wanted to become a lawyear but his acromegaly prevented him from doing that. He served as an engineer in the French navy for 5 years. Tillet met a professional wrestler in 1937 who convinced him to join the business. He won many heavy weight championships. Unfortunately, he died on 1954 from a heart disease. (Wiki Page)

+ Michelle McCool [2011] 
The career of Michelle McCool lasted on WWE television for 7 years, which by some standards may be a short time, but for Michelle, it was a legacy from day one.
In 2004, Michelle McCool participated in the WWE Diva Search. Though she didn’t win, she was offered a WWE contract, and debuted two years later by the side of KC James and Idol Stevens under a “sexy teacher” gimmick. Though the tag team were sent back to developmental, McCool remained on television, feuding with Ashley Massaro and doing random “Diva contests”. Though McCool had an amazing build, she didn’t train to be a Diva, she wanted to be a wrestler.
Over the course of the next 4 years, McCool’s attitude would change as she became a little more self-involved, shifting her focus on winning championships and making an ally of Layla in the legendary team-up known as LayCool. Within her last 4 years in the company, McCool would win the WWE Women’s Championship and the WWE Divas Championship 2 times each, as well as winning the Slammy award for Diva Of The Year in 2010.

Sami Zayn Vs. Adrian Neville
WWE Main Event (Dark Match) [May 20th, 2014]

It could be argued that this match was the precursor to WWE shows featuring NXT talent, prior to their full-time WWE debut. After last night’s epic main event, and the disappointing end for Sami Zayn, I decided to bump this match ahead of the usual queue to feature it today. Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville are two wrestlers who have known each other well for years.

Though the lack of commentary in this match, as well as low general crowd reaction (due solely with the audience not being completely familiar with both men), this match delivers as a solid wrestling contest. It begins with a feeling out process as both men pick a spot to target, then gels quickly into a hold-for-hold, move-for-move match up where both men gain advantages over their opponents. The crowd finally starts to wake up around the 7:00 mark, and are astounded at the quick-paced maneuvers by both Zayn and Neville. When Neville hits the Red Arrow, the fans react approvingly, cheering on the NXT Champion in his home land of England.
