    The Demon-Wagner match is interesting. Normally Demon's at that level of "never losing the mask ever" status right below Santo, but there's been squabbles with the family enough where there's always that 1% chance he finally said fuck it and cashed out. Then again, you can tell from the mask-ripping spots that he's been doing that Demon is another Blue Panther where he'd look 100x older without the mask. You'd also think you want to save something like Wagner's first hair loss for someone on the come-up who can benefit from it, but that's sensible booking and you can't expect that from AAA very often.

    Wrestling Is Gross

    Just a head’s up to anyone else here who is a fan of Street Fight Radio, and you should be, Bryan (@murderbryan) was on this show a few days ago and it was awesome. http://wrestlingisgross.libsyn.com/wrestling-is-gross-15-dave-meltzers-wife-left-him
  4. I need monster gaijin Rusev working the Champion Carnival and the G-1 in 2020.
  5. The Chairman, Vince McMahon, walking with a cane, painfully makes his way down the runway and into the ring. He’s somewhat saddened, somewhat burdened, things having changed in his life since Thursday night. As Smackdown was going off the air he received the news that his wife had been taken to the hospital and would just like to take a few moments to clear something up as he fears his reaction to the news might’ve been misinterpreted. When he heard the news he laughed; he now recognises that wasn’t the appropriate response and wouldn’t want people to think he’s some sort of insensitive megalomaniac! While he will take some of the blame for Linda’s nervous breakdown, some should also go to Commissioner Mick Foley and some to his daughter Stephanie. Starting tonight though, in his personal life as well as his business life, he’s going to start making things right. Before he does there is one other person that should take some responsibility for his wife’s nervous breakdown, that person is his wife Linda. How would he have known she’s so fragile, delicate and weak? To which Jim Ross quips “they’ve only been married 34 years!” Vince hopes that Linda is watching as he’s spoken to his attorney who will temporarily suspend divorce proceedings until she gets better. What a guy! To show how they were he’s aso put together a video montage of their life together to share with everyone. After the video ends Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley walks out to join her father. When he questions “what the hell” she’s doing here, she says to tell him exactly what she thinks of him. Last week she called him disgusting, but after seeing that video and the way he’s dragged her mother’s reputation through the gutter, it shows how disgusting he really he is. She’s proud that she’s not ’Daddy’s little girl’ any more and that she’s more like her Mum rather than a mean old bastard! There’s a huge pop for the use of that word, the use of which sets Vinnie Mac off. He didn’t want to marry the bitch, he had to, and if he hadn’t then her brother Shane would be a bastard! Kurt Angle is next out and while he acknowledges that this doesn’t concern him, it’s all getting too much. He can’t believe that one family member can be so cruel, so monstrous. It pains him to say this but “Stephanie, I’m ashamed of you!” Haha, I don’t think anyone saw that one coming. Where he comes from if he spoke to his father like Stephanie spoke to hers he would’ve been kicked out of the house and can’t believe that she shows him so much disrespect. Three becomes four in the shape of the Commissioner and the first thing he does is kick Vince McMahon’s cane away, telling him that he won’t be needing that because his injuries are about as real as the sentiment behind that video that sickened them all. Foley says that on Smackdown he referred to him as “garbage”, he now thinks that’s an insult to actual garbage as Vince is the lowest form of scum he’s ever been exposed to. While there is no love lost between him and Stephanie, any father who speaks to their daughter in that way is scum. What was equally disgusting to him is how his actions led to a good friend of his, Linda McMahon’s, nervous breakdown. Angle interrupts Mick, not impressed by his insinuations that Mr McMahon (note, Mr McMahon not Vince) drove Mrs McMahon to her breakdown. How does he know it wasn’t caused by see her husband taking a ‘Stunner’, ‘Rock Bottom’ and ‘Last Ride’ all on the same night? How does he know it wasn’t caused by him ramming his dirty, disgusting sock down her husband’s throat? He continues stating that he’s a fine one to talk about parenting as how many times did his kids sit at ringside whilst he was getting beaten and annihilated? Kurt goes onto wonder why anyone would marry him and if he was, he’d follow Mr McMahon’s lead and ask for a divorce too. After a real good point on the parenting, Foley ignores that, making light about Kurt marrying him and wanting to be his wife. The Commissioner isn’t going to make him his wife, he is though going to make his defend his WWF World heavyweight title. Kurt points out that he already booked him in a ‘Fatal Four Way’ against the Rock, Steve Austin and the Undertaker as well as ‘Hell in a Cell’ and he came out on top of those so what kind of match could he book him in that would be so bad? Foley says there is one person on the WWF roster that he hasn’t faced; a real tough guy, a bad ass, a former WWF champion, Vince McMahon! Vince and Kurt are sat down backstage talking things over. Kurt wants nothing to do with the match, however the prospect of becoming WWF World champion again appeals to Mr McMahon. He says how Mick Foley is trying to humiliate him, but what could humiliate him more than Vince McMahon being a two time World champion? Angle doesn’t bother to stick around and leaves Vince to his daydreaming. He finds Edge & Christian in the hallway and is glad to have done so. Despite everything Mick Foley has put them through Kurt thinks he really likes them and would like them to use their Canadian charms to get this match called off. Angle returns to see Vince who is already in his wrestling gear, guns on show for all. McMahon now doesn’t like the idea, he LOVES it, thinking that it will drive Mick Foley over the edge if he has to deal with him as the WWF champion. He wants to Kurt to lay down for him, but Angle tells him “no friggin way” he’s not getting his World title. Vince is applying some baby lotion when Trish Stratus pays him a visit. She really admires what he’s done and really admires a man who takes charge. Oh, please no! He says taking charge is something that he does really well and Trish wishe him luck before going on her way. Kurt goes to see if Edge & Christian have had any luck in getting Mick Foley to cancel the match, insensitive Kurt showing little compassion for his friends who’ve just lost their tag team titles. The two of them take umbrage with how everything is always about him and that maybe he should start thinking of other people for a change. Things are not looking rosy in Team ECK camp! No-one else seemingly able to, or wanting to, help him out, Angle goes directly to the Commissioner and pleads with him not to make him go through with this match. Kurt is sure Vince has got something up his sleeve to cost him his title, and if he hasn’t he’ll just be beating up the owner of the company who he doesn’t want to be making an enemy of. Mick would like to help him out but after he made the match he phoned his wife and she was so excited about it that if he were to call it off he’s afraid she would ask for a divorce! Michael Cole grabs a final word with Vince McMahon who reiterates what he said earlier about making things right both personally and professionally. Not content at just watching on from his ‘office’ Mick Foley makes himself the special guest ring announcer before taking a seat next to ‘the King’ at the commentary table. His ring announcing the expected roasting and insulting of the two competitors. Vince and Kurt are nose to nose until Kurt turns to say something to Foley, when he does so, Vince grabs a go behind, takes the champion down and starts screaming “two points, two points” acting as if he’s won already. He exits the ring, takes the ring mic and goes over to the Commissioner, thanking him for booking this match. As he’s going on about he, a former state amateur champion, taking down and scoring two points on an Olympic gold medallist, he suddenly clocks Foley in the head with the microphone. Angle is out to join him in the attack and this whole thing has been one giant swerve. Mick does fire back, with Earl Hebner badly getting in the way, until Kurt blindsides him. Edge & Christian are out and, showing there are no tensions between ECK after all, give Foley a ‘conchairto’. With the Commissioner now busted open Stephanie runs down the aisle shouting at them all to stop. She hopes that Mick is alright because she has something that could change his life for ever. The documents in her hands are from the WWF Board of Directors which state that since her mother, the CEO of the World Wrestling Federation, has been deemed mentally incompetent to grant full power and authority of the CEO’s office to… her Dad, Vince McMahon. As he now has complete and total authority once again he says it means that Mr McMahon is back and his first order is to fire Mick Foley. The former Commissioner does try to rush Vince but Angle blasts him over the head with a chair and he’s left laying a beaten and bloody mess. Boy was this long! I basically trimmed the WWF stuff I was planning to watch a couple of weeks ago due to how much time I’ve spent on this project already, but kept this in as the whole idea of a Kurt Angle vs Vince McMahon match was intriguing. Of course it turns out to be no match and one long elaborate angle (practically half of this episode of Raw is devoted to it with all the backstage skits) to get Vince back in power. Foley, Kurt and Vince himself were all great and they hoodwinked me, but boy was it long!
  6. Prior to the match we get a lengthy interview from Triple H, which also airs on the big screen in the arena to the fans, who is at the WWF Studios in Stamford, CT. It’s pretty longwinded, but he admits to being the person behind running Steve Austin over because in his absence he knew that no-one would be able to touch him. Rikishi was his accomplice and his payment was nothing more than him opening the door for him so that he could dance his way into everyone’s hearts. In Austin’s absence the McMahon-Helmsley era reigned supreme and when someone got in his way he took them out. It was all smooth sailing until he returned at Backlash and where his interference cost him the World Wrestling Federation title. Triple H goes on to admit to being behind the attack on his buddy Jim Ross and being the mystery assailant who assaulted him with a wrench. We get clips of HHH bloodying ‘Stone Cold’ up on Raw after he hit him in the head with the sledgehammer and he closes by saying that this is “a new Game”, one that Austin can’t win. A rather cocky Eddy Guerrero is in the ring wondering where Steve Austin is and why it’s taking him so long. Is ‘the Rattlesnake’ afraid of his Latino Heat? If he continues to keep him waiting then maybe he’ll start drinking some of his beer! He decides that he’s going to make it easier for him, lying on the mat and offering ‘Stone Cold’ the first shot. The Radicalz are enjoying a feast in the McMahon-Helmsley office and Michael Cole comments on how smug Eddy is with all his buddies watching his back. A chef enters the office bringing another platter, but it is in fact Austin who attacks the three of them before blocking the office door with a fork lift. Eddy’s not so cocky now and is on his knees begging for mercy as Austin makes his way down the aisle, not having taken his focus off him once. Thesz press followed by those fists of fire of his. He throws Eddy to the floor and follows him out. Referee Jimmy Korderas tries to separate the two but when Austin shoves him aside, Eddy grabs a chair and hits ‘the Rattlesnake’ in the knee with it. Eddy does target that heavily braced leg of Austin’s, however the moment he misses the dropkick to the knee and ends up posting himself the encounter is pretty much done for. His facials are awesome by the way when Austin repeats the posting. ‘Stone Cold’ stomps a mud hole in him, drags him to his feet, ‘Stunner’ and this one’s over. Not what I was hoping for when I saw the length of the video and that it was Austin vs Eddy one on one.
  7. Fuck me. And Rusev vs Omega. Rusev vs Janela. Rusev vs Moxley in a Fuck-WWE-On-A-Pole match ? Lana doing actual *fun* manager work ? Damn, isn't this fun ? We're all speculating about when people's contracts are up and shit, like it's 1997 ! That guy is snakebit. Possible still a racist asshole, the anxiety attack deal which got him off Mania vs Cena, now this...
  8. Lars may be out the rest of the year with his knee injury
  9. I need monster heel Rusev vs old man Dustin so I really hope he doesn't resign

    Interesting - the full version of Fantastics/Sheepherders drops two days after Bryan namedrops the Sheepherders on Smackdown.

    Pro Shot yes. No commentary
  12. I felt this the moment AEW announced - 2018 is going to retrospectively feel like 1985 or 1986. The consolidation is happening and in the way that AWA, World Class, UWF etc. limped along for a couple of years, ROH, MLW and Impact will. 2018 will feel like a golden year of openness in the way talent could float - you can already see that being choked out as the promotions who have contracts try to keep guys exclusive. There's just no reason for guys to sign in those places unless they don't really have an upward trajectory to WWE or AEW, and a lot of people there who do have that desperately want out. And yes, the streaming era and the strong indies will make this a more fun time to be a fan than in late 80s and early 90s, because guys will still have places to go outside the Big 2 and will be able to be seen.

    Is it a full pro shot? Does everything have commentary?
  14. They gave him a classy sendoff because they assumed he was just taking a break and coming back, even though he made it clear he wasn't re-signing. I don't want to say that Vince is genuinely naive when it comes to talents' feelings when contracts expire but it definitely was a miscalculation on his part on many angles, including trying to bury Moxley in a feud with EC3, which caused Vince to be mad at EC3 for no reason other than the fans didn't react how Vince wanted, and EC3 being buried in return. If anything, that should've been the wake-up call for Vince to get his shit together and use his roster to its full potential. But he remains as complacent as he's been in the past 18 years.

    I don't know if that's a viable roadmap with the way he torched the company after they gave him as classy a sendoff as they've given anyone. If anything, he ensured that anyone who wants to leave will be buried six feet under on the way out.
  16. An okay but sloppy power vs. technique dynamic, with Ramazi slamming and the fans eating it up, while Yamamoto is trying to get the job done on the mat. Shits breaks down when Ramazi tries to throw Yamamoto over the ropes but the finishing sleeper hold segment was the best part of the match.

    [1996-05-25-RINGS] Volk Han vs Hans Nyman

    Sadly, the worst match Han has been involved in but the post-match shenanigans was cool, I guess?
  18. It's not the first time Rusev acts all "Fire me please, I don't give a fuck anymore" on social media. I doubt the guy is signing any new contract.
  19. El-P

    83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff

    Bischoff defending the Master P deal is pretty pathetic. It was a laughing stock and a disaster. Damn, he also defends the awful contortionist angle. And the dog attack angle. WTF is up with Bischoff this week ? Too many long rants again too... to the point of the thing getting hard extremely annoying to listen to, honestly. I dunno if this podcast has jumped the ship already, or if the much more sane approach of JR hurts this one and Brucie's (who I don't listen to anymore for now), but yeah, way too long of an episode with way too much uninteresting bullshit. EDIT : could not finish it. I'm going to give this podcast a rest and only check episodes heavily pimped on here next time, because this one was insufferable.
  20. Cue the "WWE just added six months to Harper's contract" joke. In all seriousness, I don't mind WWE talents criticizing the products but when someone like Jon Moxley laid down the roadmap on how to deal with the remainder of their contract, it's baffling to think that acting otherwise will get them the same result. That or they think they'll be exceptions like Shawn Spears and KENTA.
  21. Probably the best match on an otherwise underwhelming show. Mikhail is wilding out with the kicks and airplane spins and single leg crabs and big open hand slaps, and the Russian crowd is loving every minute of it. He throws TK with a belly-to-belly into a neck crank and TK is trying to get something going, throwing knees, grabbing holds, but Mikhail blows right through them. At one point, he's clearly just showing off, trying to deadlift TK off the mat. Mikhail pummels TK with palm strikes for a knockdown but TK is quick to pop up and drops Mikhail with a pretty sick uranage. Good back-and-forth struggle toward the end, although Mikhail stays aggressive throughout with the strikes and straight armbar attempts. But TK ends up tapping him with the rear choke. Good stuff.
  22. It would be awesome to start seeing more WWE wrestlers coming out & challenging the ridiculous independent contractor bullshit to be honest.

    If they release an uncut 87 next, I am gonna freak out. That was my first ever commercial tape. I still have it in the giant clam shell packaging. I watched those clipped matches a million times. I've wanted to see the whole thing uncut for so long.
