  • Jim Ross On His Attire For Extreme Rules, Steve Austin, More

    Posted on April 15th, 2011 admin 8 comments

    Jim Ross Blog

    Jim Ross has updated the blog section on his JRsBarBQ.com website and the following are excerpts:

    On what he’ll wear to Extreme Rules for his match: “Hard to believe that some fans want to know what I’m wearing for our tag team ‘match’ at Extreme Rules. Haven’t given it much thought. My lack of grappling skill is going to make this a train wreck without fail. If I have to be in the ring with Swagger, perhaps I should wear a suit of amour but he would likely dent that just as he ripped my ankle that’s still sore after all these weeks. Hopefully Swagger sees the light and bails on Cole as the former Sooner has embarrassed himself enough with his relationship with the Syracuse grad. When one gets out of their element, as I will do in Tampa at Extreme Rules, it certainly creates an adrenaline rush notwithstanding some levels of self doubt as well.”

    On Steve Austin’s work on Tough Enough: “@steveaustinBSR has improved his body of work, skill set, and overall rep in Hollywood by starring on USA’s Tough Enough. Austin has dominated every scene that he’s appeared and is doing so by simply being himself.

    When young, aspiring wrestling announcers or broadcasters of any ilk want advice, the first thing I tell them is to simply “be yourself.’ If yourself isn’t good enough, so be it. Don’t be a phony as folks will see thru that immediately.

    What one sees with Austin is what it actually is.”

  • 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

    Posted on April 15th, 2011 admin 39 comments

    The following is courtesy of http://www.MondayNightMayhem.com

    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:

    “The Hot Seat With Eric Bischoff” (flavored by Sizzlin Sauces) (MNM Podcast on iTunes): www.mondaynightmayhemarchives.com/april11/041111.mp3

    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.”

  • Bill DeMott Says TE Contestants Didn’t Deserve To Be At WM

    Posted on April 13th, 2011 admin 6 comments

    Monday Night Mayhem with Bill DeMott
    Hosts: The Big Mosh and “The Chairman of the Board” Todd Vincent
    Report by Paterson from N.J.
    Airs every Monday at 6:00 P.M. (CT)
    Show available at MondayNightMayhem.com.

    Why he made the decision to return to the WWE as a trainer for Tough Enough: “It’s very simple. I was sitting home, and my phone rang. I looked at the area code. It was 203, and I said ‘Damn what did I do now?’ Anytime I see those three numbers for Connecticut, the first thing I think is ‘What did I do?’ It was John Gaburick, my friend for years and who ran the Tough Enough’s in years past. Before he could get the sentence out of his mouth, I said I was in. He didn’t have to explain anything, or after the hereafters, and who was apart of it. Before I knew it was ‘Stone Cold’ (Steve Austin), Trish (Stratus), and Booker (T) I was in, because I take great pride in associating myself with the Tough Enough brand.”

    How the Tough Enough contestants took to WrestleMania weekend and the overall experience of WrestleMania XXVII: “I don’t think they got it, and there’s a part of me that says they did not deserve to be there. I don’t mean it disrespectfully. I understand Raw and premiere the kids there, but WrestleMania? You have to earn that spot. There’s cats on the roster that weren’t at WrestleMania, so I don’t think they understood it. I just thought they were like ‘Wow, we’re at WrestleMania, and there’s cameras ollowing us, and we’re it right now.’ I guess that’s my crossover with Reality TV right now. I’m always going to protect the business.”

    How many of the Tough Enough contestants (besides the winner) he believes have the potential to perform in the WWE: “If I gave my honest opinion, which I pretty much do 99 percent of the time, there might be three that have potential to go to the farm system. The finale will be live, so everybody will see who the two or three are. I think for reality TV, a lot of people are picking their favorite talent and putting their money on them. I think every week someone is going to be shocked at what happens.”

    Whether or not there have been discussions of a return to the ring or the announcer’s table after the season finale of WWE Tough Enough airs: “There’s been some very interesting conversations since returning from L.A. and shooting the first nine weeks of the series. I think people are going to be very surprised if they see me back in anything other than Tough Enough. I like Tough Enough to be my baby and be there as long as they’ll have me, and I feel like even after the training stuff is done in producing and bringing the show further and further. But I think people are going to be surprised at my role, whether it be a new role or an old role with WWE. I have to say, don’t cash me out of making an in-ring appearance or two.”

    Much more is contained in Bill DeMott’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, including his candid thoughts and comments on what he personally and professionally wanted to bring to the Tough Enough table after the show’s previous installment (the $1,000,000 Tough Enough) was not well-received by both fans and critics alike, a typical week filming Tough Enough for the contestants and trainers, what it meant to have John Cena appear as the first WWE Superstar to guest star on the program, how he uses successful Tough Enough alumni (such as WWE Champion The Miz and John Morrison) to discuss potential career path opportunities for the current crop of contestants, when he believes the show’s contestants will truly understand what the entire Tough Enough experience means, his advice to those who want to break into the industry today, an in-depth look at his wrestling school (New Energy Wrestling), plus much more! Find out how you can follow in the footsteps of The Miz and John Morrison and be trained by Bill DeMott by logging on to New Energy Wrestling’s official website (located at www.NewEnergyWrestling-llc.com) and by following him right now on Twitter (at www.Twitter.com/BillDeMott). See Bill and his fellow trainers (Booker T and Trish Stratus), along with host “Stone Cold” Steve Austin every Monday night (at 8PM ET/7PM CT) for new episodes of WWE’s Tough Enough on the USA Network.

  • Recent Article Reveals Donald Trump’s WWE Paydays

    Posted on April 12th, 2011 admin 4 comments

    The Smoking Gun website has released a recent article that outlines Donald Trump’s lack of charitable contributions compared to other billionaires and in doing so, they revealed the pay his charity organization received for his work with the WWE.  Trump’s tax returns showed that the Donald J. Trump Foundation received $4 million for Donald Trump’s participation in the 2007 WrestleMania program when Vince McMahon got his head shaved after the Umaga/Bobby Lashley match.  The foundation got another $1 million for his work in 2009 when Trump “bought” the WWE and sold it back to Vince McMahon (all storyline and not actually true).  It’s an interesting read and can be found on www.thesmokinggun.com.
