  • Mick Foley Looks Back At Edge’s Amazing WWE Career

    Posted on April 15th, 2011 admin 55 comments

    Mick Foley wrote a very lengthy and very good blog remembering Edge’s career and the type of impact Edge made on the wrestling business.  The following is an excerpt from Foley’s blog:

    “I had no doubt at the time, 2006, that Edge was the number one wrestler in the business. I think one could put up an argument that he was the number one wrestler for a period of time during any one of a number of years. His matches with the top WWE stars of his era – The Undertaker, Triple H, Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, John Cena, etc. etc. – are the stuff of legend. If there is any weakness to an argument for Edge, it is that he did amazing matches with such regularity that I’m not sure fans could completely appreciate just how amazing they were. Following my Mania match with Edge, I spent a LONG time in bed, caught a late flight, and made it home just in time to see Edge on Raw, stealing the show again – less than 24 hours after stealing the biggest show of the year.

    I don’t know if there will ever be a consensus on who the best wrestler or worker of that era (call it 2003-2011, starting and ending with the neck injury) is or was. I once said I could make a good argument for Shawn Michaels – and I can. I think I could make a pretty good argument for Kurt Angle. Based on big money matches, some might say Triple H. For pure wrestling, maybe AJ Styles or Samoa Joe, or any number of Japanese stars who have flown beneath the mainstream radar.

    But look at the other attributes that Edge brought to the table. A willingness to fully immerse himself in every storyline – to make people believe, or at least to believe that he believed. He embraced the ridiculous. He loved the emotional. He thrived under pressure. He stood up for what he thought was best for his characters, his matches, his opponents, and the shows. As viewers, we knew that every segment he appeared in was going to be good. But more importantly, we knew that any segment with Edge had the potential be great.”

  • Eric Bischoff Says He’s “Still Angry at Jeff Hardy,” More

    TNA’s Eric Bischoff was one of the featured guests on this week’s live edition of the award-winning Monday Night Mayhem: You can feel The Mayhem every Monday evening (at 7PM ET/6PM CT), exclusively on The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network (www.MondayNightMayhem.com, www.AudioWrestling.com, www.Geekweek.com, www.Hybrident.tv, & www.iTunes.com). Join The Mayhem right now on Facebook (at www.Facebook.com/MondayNightMayhem), and follow The Mayhem on Twitter (at www.Twitter.com/FeelTheMayhem).

    Eric joined The Big Mosh & “The Chairman of the Board” Todd Vincent for his return to “Your Home of Wrestling Radio” & for another installment of his exclusive monthly interactive segment on Monday Night Mayhem, “The Hot Seat With Eric Bischoff” (flavored by Sizzlin Sauces), which is now available in Windows Streaming Media or via the official MNM Podcast on iTunes:

    Questions were taken via Eric’s official Facebook page (located at www.Facebook.com/TheEricBischoff), along with The Mayhem Line (877.666.2110). Interview highlights courtesy of The Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson from New Jersey:

    What Jeff Hardy could effectively give back to TNA if a return to the company facilitates itself & his reaction to the closing moments of the Victory Road Pay-Per-View: “I’m the wrong person to ask that question of, and I shouldn’t be. I can’t understand why I feel the way I feel, therefore I certainly can’t explain it. I’m still angry at Jeff Hardy, so it’s hard for me to discuss what I think he could do or should do, because until I quit being angry at him and about the situation, whatever would come out of my mouth would probably be counterproductive.”

    How the TNA return of “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels came to fruition & why he was “very happy when he came back”: “I don’t really want to go into the behind the scenes of it. I was impressed with Chris when I first came to TNA. I was surprised when he left the company, but I understand it was business. There were changes, and decisions, and moves that had to be made, but I also knew that everyone in TNA fully expected to have Chris back at some point. I was very happy when he came back. He’s a good athlete, he’s a good character, and I’m interested to see how that character evolves as the weeks & months go by.”

  • Hulk Hogan Backtracks On His Recent Edge Comments

    Posted on April 12th, 2011 admin 6 comments

    Hogan is now backtracking on his most recent negative comments about Edges retirement, here is what he had to say:

     

    Hulk Hogan posted the following comments on his official Twitter page: “I’m not saying anything bad about Edge, but he’s a real wrestler. Stone Cold and Cena had neck surgery and u couldn’t stop em, or Edge.  It’s in Edges blood,he lives for this business.  He’s a real wrestler, he’s a lifer, he’s one of the real boys, he’s hard to hold down, that’s all. HH”

    It’s interesting to note that Hogan’s mention of Steve Austin’s neck surgery (the same surgery that Edge had) seemed to indicate that Austin worked after the surgery and Edge has not.  Both men worked for a while after their surgeries, but Austin stopped wrestling for the exact same reason Edge has been forced to retire: they risk very serious, permanent damage to their bodies if they continue.

  • Hogan Makes Tasteless Comments About Edge’s Retirement

    Posted on April 12th, 2011 admin No comments

    The following are some new tweets from the official Twitter page of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan:

    @jays712 if any of the guys like me,Flair,Hardy,Andre,AA,Blanchard,orndoff,Henning would have listened to doctors we would have quit15yrsago

    @jays712 but I don’t know Edges working environment because they are a media company not a wrestling company. HH wrestlers work hurt!

     

    We here at Wrestling Rumors and News encourage Hulk Hogan to consider retiring because he is a has been who now wrestles for a second rate promotion that has ZERO chance of ever competing with the WWE as long as he and Bischoff have any pull within the company!

  • Kurt Angle Pleads Guilty To Reckless Driving Charge

    Posted on April 11th, 2011 admin 2 comments

    The following is a new article from GrandForksHerald.com:

    Wrestler Kurt Angle pleads guilty to reckless driving charge

    Kurt Angle, an Olympian-turned-pro-wrestler who was arrested near Thompson, N.D., on March 25, pleaded guilty Friday to a reckless driving charge.

    Under the terms of a plea deal, Angle would have to pay a $475 fine, serve a year of unsupervised probation and undergo a chemical dependency evaluation. He would also receive a suspended sentence of 10 days in jail.

    Angle, of Coraopolis, Penn., did not appear in court, but his written plea was filed with the clerk of court’s office Friday. A judge must now decide whether to accept Angle’s plea agreement.

    According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, a trooper found Angle behind the wheel of an SUV that was stopped in the median of Interstate 29 a couple of miles south of the Thompson exit. The trooper reportedly smelled an odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.

    Angle initially told the trooper he had hit an icy patch, but the patrol reported that the road was dry. Angle later said he had received a text message that distracted him and caused him to go into the median, according to the patrol.

    The patrol said Angle failed a field-sobriety test and was taken to the Grand Forks County jail where he took a breath test. Prosecutor Chris Griffin said Angle’s blood-alcohol level was .083 percent. The legal limit to drive in North Dakota is .08 percent.

    Angle, 42, was charged with actual physical control, which means he was not accused of drunken driving but of being behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated.

    Based on Angle’s blood-alcohol level and his lack of prior drunken-driving convictions, Griffin said, prosecutors were willing to amend the charge to reckless driving.

    On March 25, Angle was in the area to perform at the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling show at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.

    In 1996, he won a gold medal wrestling for the U.S. at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
