PUNK HAS TILL FIVE

Those two are good together. Not quite Punk-Burke (COME BACK BLACK POPE), Punk-Morrison, or Punk-Jericho, but good.

That was neat. Four young guys with a chance to be stars, plus a Samoan who resembles Paul Wight. I think Punk was the oldest guy in the ring there.

CM Punk is the current SDW Northern States Television Champion. He was one of the most exciting wrestlers to break onto the wrestling scene in the last few years. He debuted in SPCW with a draw against Ace Steel. He eventually won the light heavyweight tournament against Black Dagger. He had successful defenses in hard fought battles against Daryck St. Holmes in February and Shifty in March. He battled Shifty to a draw in April.

Jim Cornette on why you should vote for obama (http://wrestlingclassics.com/cgi-bin/.ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=17;t=000331;p=):

(seriously)

In the 2008 election, the American public has the choice of voting for a brilliant, articulate, inspirational Harvard graduate that wants to save the country from the Bush administration's 8 years of incompetance, malfeasance and deception, OR, a 72 year old mushmouth with a condescinding smirk and confused demeanor who suffers from anger management issues and promises more of the same Bush policies, for President of the United States.

For Vice President, we have the choice of the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee with 35 years experience at the highest levels of government, or a hockey mom who was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, the crystal-meth lab capitol of the state.

Incredible as it may seem to those of us with the powers of reason and comprehension, this is still a contest. Attempting to identify the groups most likely to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin over Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the face of all logic and evidence to the contrary, and trying to instill some type of cogent thought process in them, should be of paramount importance to anyone who wants this country out of it's economic recession, a return on the investment in their homes, the restoration of America's lost respect in the eyes of every country in the world, and a leader who will be a public servant instead of a punch line. And while we're at it, let's book a Texas Death Match between Michelle Obama, who is a better speaker and apparently more intelligent than John McCain, and that creepy Stepford wife Cindy McCain.

By the way, even if McCain DOES have the skills or credentials to be President, please remember that not only is he a 72 year old cancer survivor, but that NINE times in the 232 year history of this nation a Vice President has ascended to become the leader of the free world through death or assassination. According to insurance company actuarial tables, if John McCain is elected, there is a ONE in THREE chance of Sarah Palin being President by 2012. Does anyone really relish the thought of the serially pregnant Palin staring down Putin at the conference table, using the wacky tricks she learned from her hockey kids in negotiations, or the raging baby-making Palin with her finger on the button in a crisis with a nuclear Iran that would make the Bay of Pigs look like the latest Girls Gone Wild video?

The continued parading of Palin's family--adorable offspring, athletic, snowmobile riding husband who apparently sits in on his wife's Alaskan cabinet meetings, even the closeups of her developmentally-challenged baby--is a Wag the Dog scenario rewritten for Lifetime Television and being presented to the American public in a for-real campaign for the Republican party to keep the Presidency regardless of merit, political theater at it's most absurd--and dangerous. It is the equivalent of showing cute puppies on television to children.

Every major "fact" told about her by McCain in his introduction of her, and uttered by her in her carefully scripted and tightly controlled public appearances has been proven false, including the Bridge to Nowhere (she kept the money) and the plane sale on Ebay (listed there but sold by a broker at a $600,000 loss). She believes the Iraq war is a "task from God"--she is against abortion, gay rights, evolution, sex education and birth control for teens--she denies global warming--she goes to a church that tries to convert Jews and "cure" homosexuals--and one can only imagine the dire effects a President Palin would have on the Supreme Court, plunging the country into a scientific and social dark age for years to come. We might as well all be Amish.

The McCain campaign wants to win this election at any cost, and she's so eager to hit the White House she doesn't care that her son is about to risk his life in Iraq, it "gets her over" with the pro war crowd. She's willing to ruin her daughter's life, making her marry at 17 to the high school jock that knocked her up with the child she'll be the single mother of when the shotgun wedding falls apart, because a common sense solution is "against God's will" and would kill her with the church goers. Even all Hillary had to "swallow" was Bill getting a Lewinsky from Monica, this woman is willing to ruin her family's lives to get votes.

For an in-depth look at Palin, the fraud, liar, and star of political puppet theatre, see the feature article in the October 2 issue of Rolling Stone. But back to our subject---

Operating on the well-proven theory that you can never underestimate the intelligence of the American public, and that you can fool most of the people all of the time (i.e. the P.T.Barnum corroborator), I have identified the following groups of people that may vote for the McCain/Palin ticket. If you know of anyone who fits into these general categories, please shine a flashlight against the wall to get their attention, and present the facts of this case to help us save this country before it is too late.

REPUBLICANS---Not much we can do here, because anyone close-minded enough to vote for someone based on what club they belong to rather than the individual's credentials and qualifications for the job may be beyond help. I have never voted in any election in my life--never registered as a member of any party--but this election is too important to sit back and watch and hope. As Obama has said, it's not about the red states, or the blue states, it's about the UNITED states.

WOMEN---Granted, Hillary Clinton is a manipulative, power hungry ***** who would do anything to get elected, but once there, she wouldn't have been the WORST President ever, (especially with the bar set so low the past 8 years), just the most obnoxious. But the idea that women are so hell-bent on having a female in the White House that they will vote for a publicity stunt just because she has a vagina should be insulting to every woman in the country with the power of independent thinking. Does Sarah Palin's uncanny ability to be successfully inseminated qualify her to be the most powerful person in the world?

CHURCH GOERS---Despite the founding fathers and framers of the Constitution providing for separation of church and state, and despite the progress we have made in having a black man and a woman on the major parties' tickets, we are unfortunately still a long way from having a Presidential candidate who can publicly proclaim he does not believe in the supernatural without committing political suicide. Nevertheless, there's no problem here, because Obama believes in God too, he's just willing to let everyone else believe in their theories too without shoving one set of beliefs down everyone's throats or letting those beliefs get in the way of governing with common sense and rationality.

NRA MEMBERS/HUNTERS---These people shouldn't worry, they can continue to butcher and slaughter innocent animals in the woods and compensate for their small penises with their large rifles, as Obama has said "There's got to be a way to keep guns in the hands of sportsmen while keeping AK-47's out of the hands of gang members." Imagine that, a thoughtful compromise from a Presidential candidate. Personally, I think the ownership of guns should be limited to law enforcement and for the personal protection of private citizens with no violent criminal records, and the hunting of wild animals should be looked upon by society somewhere in between rapists and child pornographers, but let's fight the big battles first.

PRO-LIFERS---One might excuse McCain for not believing in modern science, he was born before television was invented. But Caribou Barbie also thinks dinosaurs walked the Earth at the same time as human beings. Among the other medical and scientific advances the conservatives either don't understand or don't believe in, Palin is against abortion, even in the case of rape or incest. They believe every unwanted child has the "right to life". They also have the right to be victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse, unwanted, unloved, born into poverty, brought up by single parents or those ill-prepared or incapable of raising them, or to be tossed into a dumpster or off a bridge by desperate mothers with mental issues who feel they have no recourse.

They have the right to grow up as a strain on an already overtaxed welfare and social service system and foster a grudge against society that will place them squarely and firmly in the next generation's prison population and criminal statistics, and then have their own unwanted children that will perpetuate this cycle ad nauseum into the next century and beyond. Why do they have this right? Because "abortion is against God's will." Is God a taxpayer?? Does God have any opinion on the millions of children that are already born and waiting, often fruitlessly, to be adopted into loving families, or is he just interested in the overpopulation of an already-overburdened planet running low on natural resources?

In the 21st century, we have the knowledge, science and wherewithal to overcome many of the social, medical and genetic problems that have plagued the human race for thousands of years, yet the religious conservatives would seemingly consign us to the same fate as those in the dark ages who argued the world was not flat and were burned at the stake as witches. They would cling to manmade beliefs as old as the wheel, but not nearly as useful, all the while exhibiting a smug, condescending grin and attitude very much similar to McCain's (or Jerry Falwell's), that exudes an attitude of "My Bible trumps your scientific proof and logic".

OIL COMPANY EXECUTIVES---Nothing can save these votes, because if I was an oil executive, NO WAY would I vote for Obama, who would cut income taxes for everyone in America making less than $250,000 per year, and eliminate the proposed McCain tax cut of $4 BILLION for Exxon/Mobil alone, while eliminating our dependence on foreign oil in 10 years (much as Kennedy put a man on the moon in less than 10). You can tell McCain is scared about this one, as he takes every opportunity to misrepresent and outright LIE about Obama's plan, inventing fictitious accusations about how it would adversely affect small businesses that people who don't actually understand the plan believe. McCain seems to want the people in the U.S. who make the MOST money to keep as much of it as possible so they can hire the rest of us to cut their grass.

PEOPLE WHO LIKE WAR---I'm all in favor of bombing radical Muslims, because these people are a danger to our entire planet, cave people with automatic weapons that are such religious fanatics they make the creationist crowd look like Albert Einstein. But we are now spending $10 BILLION a month in a war where American soldiers are getting killed and maimed every day to stabilize a country that has an $80 BILLION SURPLUS, a war we were lied and misrepresented into, while letting the guy who really perpetrated 9/11 crank back in the La-Z-Boy in his cave without fear of reprisal. The McCainiacs say "we must WIN the war first!" WIN WHAT?? Obama wants to end the war in Iraq, make them run their own country, go to Afghanistan/Pakistan and capture or kill Bin Laden, and establish leadership there that will prevent these crackpot religious martyrs from flourishing to attack the U.S. in the future. Is it just that this makes so much sense people can't follow it?

LOUISIANA RESIDENTS---Is it possible that one person in the state of Louisiana would still vote for a Republican after Katrina? In what age or era would it have been acceptable to let a major American city drown without immediate aid from the federal government? While President Bush was helping John McCain cut his freakin' birthday cake, New Orleans was destroyed. No one could have stopped it, but they certainly knew it was coming, unless another of the sciences these people don't believe in is meteorology. This example of bad judgment was a comically tasteless "let them eat cake" scenario worthy of Marie Antoinette. If you think Bush's judgment was bad, McCain topped that just by making the decision to install Palin as his running mate, as Mr. "Country First" put winning the election first and the country in grave danger at the same time through the all-time classic political stunt.

PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE---Obviously, a big group for McCain. For Pete's sake, we're not voting for Flavor Flav here. If you don't like black people, you have EVERY REASON to vote for Obama. Maybe if young black men in America had a role model like him to look up to, instead of trashy rappers with gold teeth, ghetto football palayers who hold dogfights and toss cash at strippers, and punks who buy their pants six sizes too big to show us their clown underwear, we'd ALL be better off. Maybe Obama advocating parental responsibility and the need for more black fathers to stand up and parent their children would reduce the welfare rolls and the disproportionate percentage of black men in U.S. prisons. Maybe his economic policies would lift a few more above the poverty level, and his policy for giving every child a college education in exchange for service to their community or their country would give even more an alternative to dribbling a basketball, selling crack or following the example of Michael Vick or Suge Knight.

Obama's speech on race proved that he is perhaps the only politician in America who both CAN and WILL say that many white people don't like black people, and vice versa, that BOTH have some valid reasons to dislike or distrust the other, and only by confronting these issues and doing something to mend the root causes on both sides will the problems ever be solved. And hey, if you're determined not to like black people no matter what, elect a black guy President that is more intelligent, articulate, thoughtful, principled, and successful than you or I will EVER be, and if the rest of black America doesn't step up to try to emulate him, at least you'll know you were right all along.

POW'S---We are CONSTANTLY reminded McCain was a POW, and yes, he does deserve credit and respect for that. To suggest that this qualifies him to be President, or even gives any veracity to his statement that "I know how to win a war", (we LOST in Vietnam), is as specious an argument as the one that maintains Palin is the next-best qualified to run the country because she was Governor for 20 months of a state that has a population less than that of Jefferson County, Kentucky. That Barack Obama "never served his country" is simply that he was fortunate enough to be born in the generation AFTER WW2, Korea, and Viet Nam, where for the first time in over 40 years an 18 year old boy in the United States didn't have to be drafted, shot at or killed in a foreign country to "prove" his patriotism. For all you war fans out there, ask yourselves this question--would Ulysses S. Grant have been able to successfully plan the Invasion of Normandy, just because he had "experience in war?"

PEOPLE WHO WILL NEVER BE SICK A DAY IN THEIR LIVES---All these people will vote for McCain because they will never need health insurance. If you're one of the nearly 50 million people who don't have insurance, vote for Obama. Or if you're among the tens of millions who have it but pay through the nose for it because your job doesn't provide it. Or the millions more who have it but have uncovered pre-existing conditions. Or the millions more who have it through their employers, but will either be dropped or taxed on it through McCain's plan. Or if you are one who will get McCain's "$5,000 tax credit" to buy your own (good luck covering your whole family, mine costs that much just for ME). Or the millions more who have it but will be dropped if they lose their jobs or retire. Obama wants every American to have a health plan as good as the one members of Congress gets, and be able to afford it. McCain wants to give you a tax credit to buy your own, if you can, or tax you on the one you've already got. HMMMM.....decisions, decisions.

Other people who will probably vote for McCain are people who have no money in the stock market, don't have investments, don't own a home, have plenty of cash buried in the back yard to pay for rising living costs, don't need gasoline, and plan to die before America's ruined reputation globally causes either a complete collapse in our economy or gives a rogue nation with a suitcase nuke the idea to go ahead and take us out for good. No need for any of them to vote for Obama, because the changes he will make will not benefit them.

I could go on and on, and already have.

All sarcasm and comedy aside, the United States of America, in this time of crisis, in this election, has a choice to make. Are we to have the wool pulled over our eyes by a man who barely HAS a future, much less a coherent plan for OURS, and a sidekick with "folksy" charm meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator because of their flagwaving and babykissing, or a man who speaks to the American public with logic and reason as if they are on his intellectual level (which sadly most are not) with a clear vision of how to change the country and the world for the better, and his VP choice who has the experience and record to both advise him and, if the need should arise, to govern in his stead? If you just LISTEN, actually LISTEN, to both what they say and how they say it, and do even the most perfunctory fact checking from credible sources and not your uncle Joe who thinks Obama is a Muslim and prays to Allah, the choice is clear. We need a President who can bring all of us together, not one who can't even bring his own political party together. We need a Vice President who can bring wisdom and experience to the table and lead in case of tragedy, not give beauty-contest answers learned by rote to the press and crumble under the weight of suddenly becoming leader of the free world in case of crisis. There is no choice. There is no alternative. If Barack Obama is not the next President, then sadly, and unfortunately, we will have lost the opportunity at the change we so badly need. We will have no one to blame but ourselves. And we will get exactly what we deserve.

Here is a great recap of TNA from Aaron Glazer at Pulsewrestling:

Thought 11: The Key to Enjoying TNA.

Some people read comics. We could use movies as an example, but I like comics, so weíll do that. Most people who read comics just go for stuff like Spider-Man or Batman or Wolverine or whoever. Thatís WWE. Then there are those who like something more creatively unique and those people tend to focus on Watchmen (which obviously broke into the mainstream) or Walking Dead. Thatís the ROH fan. Then thereís a third type of comic fan. This type wants stuff where a giant bear wearing a tutu fights superheroes at the behest of a man with three brains in a flying saucer with training wheels, while a robot priest watches on. Thatís TNA. Itís the giant bears wearing tutus, Snakes on a Plane, or the M3STK for the wrestling crowd.

Maybe next week there's a rematch with Pricless and Orton costs him the belt again. Otherwise, I'd guess they're going another direction.

TNA's in HD and they have a new set, so I decided to induce some nightmares and watch the last 20 minutes. Their new set is, in keeping with TNA tradition, fucking terrible. Wrestlers should not have to walk parallel to the ring before moving forward.

Good match, as in it was well choreographed? Kind of, but the vast majority of matches aren't "choreographed" aside from a few spots (that is to say, big moments). That's what's so impressive about great wrestlers; they get a few guidelines and then put together matches through improvisation (backed up by years and years and years and years of painful, painful training).

Long story short? You get it or you don't. We see someone who's really fucking good at what he does because we grew to appreciate what it is that he does, while you see some guy pretending to hit another guy because you came into it expecting to see some guy pretending to hit another guy. Your perspective isn't wrong, but it's not really one that's conducive to enjoying it.

Also, when something bombs in wrestling, it's usually hilarious and awesome in a very special wrestlecrap kind of way. Except TNA, which is just completely soul-sucking and depressing.

Do you go to a movie and say: "Oh this is fake, that didn't REALLY happen. That guy just stood there while the other guy shot him."

Think of it like an action scene in a movie. Only its in a somewhat controlled environment and they only get 1 take. Live.

To be honest, I haven't followed it very closely for over a decade now, but I see the appeal of it. It is fun to watch an episode every few months. I'm more of an MMA fan, and to make a long story short, modern MMA was born from the Japanese Professional Wrestling scene.

I doubt the storylines alone are the reason anyone here is watching. Its more like they are interested in the business side as in who gets pushed, new angles, etc...

That's a very well constructed post.

Actually, one of my favorite moments of my life was when I was a kid about 15, and my family went to a WWF event in SLC. I saw Hogan fighting Zues and Roddy Piper. I saw Snooka. Hacksaw Jim Dugan (hilarious man), and a few of the other stars of the time. It was amazingly fun, but the thing that got me was to look over at my Dad who was having just as much fun with it as I was - maybe even more.

I guess I just grew out of it, and never found a reason to grow back into it. I suppose if my son got into it, so would I. Hell, I know every tool on Handy Manny's tool belt, and can sing about a dozen VeggieTales songs. I might end up rooting on Edge some day.

Hell of a baby face promo right there, I guess unless you are a Native American, Rhino is sick of you. Unless the PPV is being held on an Indian Reservation Rhino just turned HEEL. From there he gets angry and threatens the poor interview girls, so I guess his supporters are down to just Native American Males now. If all that isn’t silly enough it gets better, much better. During Rhino’s whole, I hate Foreigners; USA…love it or leave it promo he is wearing an ITALY sweatshirt. I kid you not, our Pro-American baby face while cutting an anti-foreigner promo is wearing a sweatshirt with another Countries flag on it. His sweatshirt said Italy and had an Italian Flag on it.

F4W says...

For whatever it's worth, most in TNA believe Christian is heading back to WWE in a few weeks when his deal expires. Keep in mind that when he went from WWE to TNA he didn't tell anyone his plans, including close friends who were pretty upset when they found out what happened. After the clown show that was backstage at Turning Point, I can see him wanting to get the fuck out if WWE is interested. It's tough going from the big leagues to the B-show, especially when you're making less money and people are constantly coming up to you asking why you don't wrestle anymore. I suspect Angle will be looking for a way out next year and likely Rhino and some others as well. Spring 2009 is when a lot of contracts are up, and I think a lot of guys will jump at the chance to go to WWE if WWE is interested.

Not to mention the Impact Spoiler is...The Main Event Mafia without Sting destroyed Christian Cage. Kurt Angle said they heard a rumor he was jumping back to WWE and said they are giving him a going away party, and beat him down.

Which sounds like a pretty typical Russo thing to do to a guy leaving.

London back in ROH is such an obvious move that I fear it won't happen. Burke in ROH would be amazing; there is the potential for some absolutely superb matches for him there.

I believe only money will keep London from coming back. He is one of the 5 or 6 ROH wrestlers that will always be loved and respected by ROH fans (the others being guys like Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, etc.). ROH is not in good shape right now financially and recently fired head booker Gabe Sapolsky and hired Adam Pearce to take his place (an interesting move, but ROH did seem to be in a bit of a rut lately but still light years better than TNA and arguably WWE).

Burke would definitely be interesting to see in ROH. Even if he still is a tiny bit green, there are plenty of experienced guys he could work with in ROH that could mentor him, like Jerry Lynn, Danielson, Aries, etc. The guy has so much charisma he would be gold in ROH and the crowds would love him. I compare him to Kenny King. I saw King's ROH debut in Chicago and although he was an asshole heel wrestling fan favorite Kevin Steen, the crowd still ate up what he was doing.

Kenny Dykstra, who was recently released by the WWE, wrote the following on his Myspace.com page:

""Believe it or not, I actually am happy to be gone from WWE. I dont have to do things around their schedule and I dont have to answer to anybody. I have never felt so free in my entire life. I had been working with WWE since I was 16 so I've never really known anything else.

I did have fun with WWE but the creative side never used me properly or really gave me an opportunity to get over. It sucks when you know your better than the majority and your only used to make people look good. Will I stay wrestling? I'm not sure. WWE kinda puts a bad taste in your mouth after all the politics and garbage that can go on. I may try to go to TNA but we will see. I have 90 days to think about it and possibly try."

There aren't a ton of black guys in wrestling to begin with though, I honestly think this is the most minority wrestlers I can ever remember the WWE employing at 1 time.

I think some of that has to do with a big portion of wrestlings fan base being the dumb hick/redneck people.

They went out and signed Killings and D-Lo (not that D-Lo's done anything), they brought up Kofi and Zeke, Mark Henry and Shelton have gotten title runs.

Following the news of Yada's departure from World Wrestling Entertainment, a number of fans speculated online that Yada was being let go as a result of the recent hiring of former TNA Knockout Gail Kim, who is of course Asian too. As it turns out, the speculation appears to be correct. According to one source, as soon as WWE signed Gail Kim (who is indeed under contract to the company), both Vince and Stephanie McMahon felt there was no reason to have Yada on the roster anymore since "they looked too much alike."

-- Ken Doane (a.k.a. Kenny Dkystra) removed his blog from Myspace.com today that he posted yesterday about being happy about his WWE release due to the attention it was receiving online.

Source: FOX Business News

Linda McMahon was on the FOX Business channel this afternoon to discuss WWE's financial strategy moving forward. McMahon said the future of WWE will be expanding their international touring, which will come at the expense of $20 million in budget cuts.

"We are reviewing all of our business lines, going through all of our operational structure, and we will take out $20 million in our operational cost structure next year," McMahon said. "We are looking at at least $20 million operational cost structure cut."

When asked whether the soft economy is a factor in their recent drop in earnings, McMahon said WWE tries to keep ticket prices down and tries to vary which markets they tour in. "We are looking across all of our revenue lines and we're going to keep costs down to manage that bottom line," McMahon said.

In the past week, WWE has released Super Crazy, Chuck Palumbo, Paul London, Kenny Dykstra, Elijah Burke and Lena Yada. Linda McMahon's statement that WWE is looking to cut upto $20 million in ooperational costs ties into several reports out there that more cuts are on the way.

That sounds like alot of people are going to be released...

The views of Meltzer...

Dykstra: Acted like a dick backstage, especially after Mickie dumped him, jobbed a lot on RAW, and Michael Hayes didn't want to push him - Vince also thought Dykstra had a "swimmer's body".
Burke: Lost in the shuffle, Brian Gewirtz didn't want him on RAW when Shelton Benjamin went to ECW, was a victim of cost cutting.
Yada: Didn't seem to be motivated enough to learn how to wrestle, was stiff when conducting interviews.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter

-- It's interesting to note that Elijah Burke was originally slated to be moved to the Raw brand when Shelton Benjamin moved to ECW late last year, but head Raw writer Brian Gewirtz had no interest in using him and the plan was nixed. Around the same time, WWE had plans for Kofi Kingston to be called up to the main roster, but Gewirtz had no interest in him as well. Also, SmackDown head writer Michael Hayes didn't want him either, hence his move to ECW upon his debut.

In another interesting trivia note, Elijah Burke was originally tapped to be part of the Spirit Squad, but turned the spot down. He believed the gimmick would kill his career, so he decided to wait longer to be called up to WWE. As it turned out, considering what happened with pretty much everyone on the team, he lasted longer than everyone sans Nic Nemeth (a.k.a. Dolph Ziggler) and Kenny Dykstra, who was ironically cut the same day. Burke was called up to the SmackDown roster in a pairing with Sylvester Terkay in the summer of 2006 and with the exception of Kenny Dykstra, the Spirit Squad members were sent back down to developmental by the end of the year. Around the same time, Burke really started to get noticed in WWE and he soon became the leader of the "New Breed."

Some believed Burke had small attitude issues, but several people felt he was great with promos, and as a result, had potential to be a money star in the future. Hence, he became the lead heel of the "New Breed." However, the angle eventually ran its course and the company apparently gave up on him. Even though he was considered to be a success in his role with the "New Breed," nobody could give a good reason as to why he wasn't being used anymore, even those directly involved in the creative process.

All of the recent cuts were part of WWE's decision to release talent not being used as a result of the company's cost cutting directive. Burke had not been used since May and there were obviously no plans to use him anytime soon, hence his dismissal from the company

I don't know that you can tar WWE with that brush. Even the "old guard" on top of Raw (Cena, Orton, Batista, Jericho) has either not been around that long or hasn't been around in a while, and guys like Punk, Kofi, Priceless, Santino, and Cryme Tyme are all getting a significant amount of screen time. Elsewhere, there's MVP, Miz and Morrison, Evan Bourne (pre-injury), Ron Killings, Mike "Do the" Knox, The Brian Kendrick and Zeke... all have been getting some decent degree of push over the past year or so.

It's not like Jeff Hardy and Vladimir Kozlov have been headlining PPVs for very long.Punk's disappeared (although he's fighting Orton on Raw apparently), Kofi hasn't been on TV, Priceless has been humiliated repeatedly lately, Santino just lost his title (how they use him now I have no idea, I guess he's Beth's valet). Not much to say with Cryme Tyme.

MVPs getting a biblical burial, Miz and Morrison are getting the 'pushed this week, punked the next' treatment, Bourne was getting pushed, Kendrick got repeatedly jobbed by Hun-Tor in his one main event.

We'll see what they do with Killings, he's been around about to the point where they decide to stop pushing a guy and bury him.

Kozlov is awful. But he's big, so they're pushing him. Go figure.

Most or all of the guys you mention are going to be career midcarders, at the best. Who are they pushing as main-eventers?

Who are they pushing as main-eventers?Punk, Morrison, MVP, the Hardies, and Priceless all look well on their way to being fixtures over the next decade, regardless of the ebb or flow they're currently experiencing. I don't think Kofi's going to have as much staying power, sadly, but there's a chance he evolves his gimmick I guess. You can't expect them to just drop guys into the main event and go over everyone clean all of a sudden.

I mean, just recently Miz-N-Morrison had DX at their mercy and lost due to arrogance rather than lack of ability. Just because these promising midcarders aren't all being booked like main eventers now doesn't mean they aren't being groomed for it.

And again, Randy Orton is 28. John Cena is 31. Edge is 35. It's not like the main event scene is going to be wiped clean in the next couple of years.

Look on this work, ye Mighty, and despair!

It's really very simple....

A wrestler called Sharkboy kept wrestling through injuries till he went into a coma at his fish themed house surrounded by his fish wife and children. The sound of broken glass healed his body and made him think he was Stone Cold Steve Austin.... but a shark!

A retard called Eric Young is a jerk to his friends, costing them titles, opportunities, money and prestige.

A wrestler called Curry Man pretends to be Japanese by affecting a horrendously racist accent and wearing a plate of curry on his head.

All three of these guys are faces, and formed a team together called The Prince Justice Brotherhood.

There's a monster called Chris Abyss Parks-Mitchell Park who used to be a pain-loving monster but then went to an insane asylum after which he became a milkman.

There's a huge female wrestler called Awesome Kong who is one of the best female wrestlers in the world today and destroyed everyone in TNA until she was beaten by a complete nobody generic blond who proceeded to do nothing with her title for several months before Kong just went ahead and beat her again.

There's a terrorist who had the sound of a plane crashing into a building for his theme music. His gimmick is that he's a terrorist and he wants to kill Americans and America.

There's an Indian guy who constantly told his best friend he meant to steal his fiance, got made his best man, ruined his wedding, openly admitted he was trying to bang the fiance, so the fiance got angry at the other guy for overreacting, then turned on the other guy and went with the Indian. The other guy, by the way, is a black dude who thinks he is The Macho Man.

There's a couple of females whose original gimmick was that they were porno stars or sluts or something, offering to suck cock everywhere they went. Now they brutalize people by putting a paper bag over their head. Their older sister recently joined them in this.

There's a tall male slut and a little dude and a skank who pretend to play music on Guitar Hero guitars.

The world's most boring man and a drunk redneck run around beating minorities with whips and laughing about how rich they are.

There's a manchild called AJ Styles who doesn't know what the hell is going on with his life.

There's a fat stupid guy called Samoa Joe who was the World Champion. He told Kevin Nash (who was past his prime in 2000, eight years ago) that he was a useless old man. Nash decided to be his best friend, then the next week they were enemies (and talked about as if that had always been the way) and then the next week friends, with Nash openly telling everyone he meant to turn on Joe. He then spent weeks deriding Joe, telling him he was a loser, openly saying he meant to turn on him and he was going to fuck him out of the title. Then he disappeared for a couple of weeks, came back, then fucked Joe out of the title. Joe was shocked.

Former WWE main eventer/World Heavyweight Champion Booker T has started talking with a Nigerian Accent with absolutely no explanation.

Sting (who was an aging veteran in 1996) has a contract that says he only has to work Impact every so often, and some PPVs, but no house shows. He beat Samoa Joe for the title by cheating in his first match back in month, winning at Bound for Glory as he has the last three years in a row. He is supposed to be a heel but has just gone ahead and kept cutting face promos.

Jeff Jarrett (a midcarder with potential in WWF back in the mid-90s) came back after a couple of years absence, told Kurt Angle that Kurt was the best wrestler who ever lived, said he had two years of ring rust and no training and didn't want to wrestle anymore.... then accepted a match with Angle and beat him.

The latest main storyline is a reformation of the Millionaire's Club angle that was run at the end of WCW's life, shortly before the former world leader in Wrestling was bought out lock, stock and barrel by Vince McMahon for exactly $47.... which Vince never bothered to pay. It features Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, Booker T and Sting, and they have promised to dominate the show and make sure they're the ones at the top no matter what because they're old so they deserve it. Former WWE star Christian has been forced into a match where, if he loses, he will be forced to join this club of guys looking out for each other and putting each other into the top spots.

Mick Foley, a wrestler who was at the top of wrestling during its hottest phase and yet can't possibly be worth more than a few hundred thousand dollars at the absolute maximum (dude has a wife, house, and four kids) is apparently wealthy enough to buy a significant number of TNA shares and become the new authority figure.

And deep at the heart of it all, sitting in his own personal hell and suffering through all of this with a thumping vein in his forehead, is Jim Cornette.

Dying for our sins.

Joey Styles kicks JBL's ass...

PWINSIDER.COM is reporting that on the recent WWE tour of Iraq, WWE.com writer and former announcer, Joey Styles was the object of repeated harassment by JBL (John Layfield) with a lot of condescending comments and actions, including a report of JBL spilling a drink on Styles on purpose.

JBL has a long history of these type of harassments. On another overseas tour he harassed Smackdown's Palmer Cannon (Brian Black)(Brian Mailhot) rsulting in Cannon flying himself home from the tour.

After several days of this Styles finally went after JBL and wrestlers held them apart, but JBL & Styles broke free and Styles nailed JBL in the eye, busting him open and blackening it. It was reported that JBL had been drinking.

Rumors that JBL screamed "Oh My God" while clutching his injured eye were likely just made up by me.

Recently fired Bruce Prichard or Brother Love however you'd like to know him who was with the WWE for a very long time is apparently so bitter about being fired that he is leaking the Wrestlemania 25 script to all of the dirt sheet sites...

From the latest torch newsletter.....

contains spoilers....

In a rather low unclassy move made earlier this week by a former employee of the WWE who was recently released, said person has mailed out the planned script that was to take place at WWE's 25th anniversary of their Superbowl they call Wrestlemania to various "dirt sheet" websites such as ourselves, presumably giving away the storyline on The Undertaker.

It is no secret to who is behind this mess, as former WWE producer Bruce Prichard, best known to WWF fans as "Brother Love"(ironically The Undertakers first manager) was released last week. The ten page script confirmed rumors of Undertakers opponent being Shawn Michaels.

The story behind it will be that Shawn Michaels, along with Undertakers kayfabe brother Kane, has gotten word that Undertaker is planning on returning to Death Valley after Wrestlemania 25(Also confirming rumors of Undertakers 2009 retirement). Kane, feeling that this is his chance to prove himself to the Undertaker, as he has never defeated the Undertaker at Wrestlemania, takes it upon himself to insert himself into the match at Wrestlemania 25. On the other hand, Shawn Michaels who has no opponent for the show, insists that he is the one who should face The Deadman in his last match, citing Ric Flair as an example. This leads to a semi feud between Kane and Shawn Michaels over who gets to face 'Taker at Wrestlemania.

This will eventually lead to a match between the two at No Way Out, with Shawn Michaels prevailing(by cheating, thus starting a small heel run) and facing The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 25. In the weeks leading into Wrestlemania 25, Kane will align himself with Shawn Michaels after HBK convinces Kane that he is indeed the better man to "do the job" at Wrestlemania 25.

HBK is set to take advantage of the fact that Kane is the closest thing to The Undertaker and will have Kane tell him of his weaknesses. The script also calls for Kane to play as a bodyguard for HBK, protecting him until Wrestlemania 25 and assisting him to his matches on RAW. Mind games will prevail in classic 'Taker fashion; there is an angle on the March 30th edition of RAW(the last RAW before WM) scripted for Kane to be cremated alive, only to escape in mere seconds with HBK ditching him.

The last two pages on the script is specifically for the match at Wrestlemania 25, with Undertaker prevailing, keeping his streak alive. The finish calls for HBK to viciously assault 'Taker with a steel chair as the referee is laid out, taking advantage of the golden opportunity.

As the referee regains himself(Mike Chioda is scheduled to referee the match) he begins the traditional slow count that is stopped by Kane stepping down on his hands. Kane will then grab HBK and deliver his signature Chokeslam to him and drag his Brother unto him, keeping Undertakers streak alive. Page ten called for Paul Bearer to come out with the urn, announcing to Undertaker that it's time to go back home. As 'Taker regains himself, he will stand face to face with Kane, and do his signature pose, before vanishing into the air. The ending has a lot of different scripts to it on the page, but this is the one we found more relevant. This will lead to a feud with Kane and HBK, leading to a Hell In A Cell match at Backlash, with that being HBK's possible last match.

This is confirmation to the rumors that has been making the rounds on the net as of late. The storyline was to be produced by Bruce Prichard, Michael Hayes, and Vince Mcmahon. We are not to excited to see what action WWE may take against Prichard releasing scripts of planned shows and angles, but it was a very unclassy move made by him and his parties. We here at WON do not condone the actions of Prichard

From observer.com:WWE announced today it would be cutting approximately 10 percent of its work force as part of the program to cut $20 million in costs this year.

The cuts that will be made today are expected to save the company $8 million.

Talent cuts are expected to part of the layoffs.Ironically this news comes the same day that Low Ki's signing was made official

Hopefully part of the negatiations would be HD cameras to be used in ROH's productions, not just the HDNet show. I was at the first show with the crane cam in Chicago Ridge and the results are really good, at least from the Samoa Joe/Tyler Black match.

Even with a half-assed effort, an ROH weekly show would be approximately 3,582.23% better than the average episode of Impact.

Finally got to see an ROH pay-per-view now that they are on Directv. I wasn't surprised that I enjoyed this one, because I was in attendance in the front row when they taped it. But for those of you looking for a damn good value in wrestling ppv, for $10 or $15 for a 2-hour show, this one is fantastic. The first hour is fairly pedestrian, but still very good, but the second hour is amazing, with an I Quit Match between Austin Aries and Jimmy Jacobs that gets very bloody with a couple insane spots and the main event of Nigel McGuiness vs. Bryan Danielson, which is close to a perfect match. I know I am an ROH shill, but it's for good reason. They put on damn good shows.

Weird to see punk go over in chicago. They usually bury guys in their hometown (I know Regal got the belt in england).

I wonder if they're trying turn the intercontinental belt into a meaningful title again. Not that a fake belt's ever all that big a deal in a fake fighter's hands, but Punk's had the ECW and World titles in the last year, and they gave him a shitload of time to celebrate like he'd won the f'n lottery. Had to win a tournament to get it and then all the DQ bs.

Maybe they're just trying to sell dvds. My guess is they let him hold it for a while while he's over, gives him a title but keeps him out of the main event picture until they think he's ready for it (if ever).

You know, the talking is interesting, but jesus I don't want to watch JBL in a main event.

That's as far into the show as I am.

My predicted finish almost happened. I thought since last week that the final 4 would be HHH, Orton, & Priceless, but I thought it would end differently. My scenario had Legacy eliminating HHH together, then (after a dramatic beat) DiBiase and Rhodes would voluntarily eliminate themselves.

I thought that was a pretty shitty ending to the Royal Rumble.

I predicted HHH from the beginning, but I don't follow the WWE closely or else I'm guessing it would have obviously been Orton.

I was pissed that those 2 didn't duke it out though.

I haven't watched wrestling since about 2001 but I did catch the end of this tonight. He not only got his ass kicked by a non-wrestler, he couldn't hold him off with the help of two buddies.

I stopped watching the WWF/E because of shitty booking and it still hasn't changed. I miss the day of three decent feds that were totally different and all had good aspects. I especially miss the REAL ECW. Not this bullshit that pass as ECW today.

That was a really weird last twenty minutes of Raw. First, the Punk-Jericho match kind of stalled out and things got sloppy until it looked like they rushed the match home due to an injury or something, and then Shane-O-Mac comes out and takes on Legacy for five minutes. I can dig him breaking through and nailing Orton, and maybe even doing it again -- adrenaline is amazing, etc. -- but all of THAT? Really?

It didn't help that it ended up looking like a bunch of twelve year olds trying to backyard wrestle without hurting each other.

Why oh why did you have to go and get yourself cast in a John Cena movie, Mayor Carcetti?"Who IS tha--OH FUCK IT'S SCRAGGLY CARCETTI!"

Yes. Like the Jericho return in late '07, we know he's coming back. Thing is, WWE knows we know he's coming back, so they're fucking it all up.I kind of like that they had Matt turn on Jeff instead of the obvious "Christian was fucking with him" thing, though.
