    ROH has removed Kyle O’Reilly from their website and un-booked him from their huge Atlanta TV tapings this Saturday. The guy who won their top title at their biggest show of the year a month ago.

    On Monday morning, the WWF send out a press release which read, “During the World Wrestling Federation’s TV-14 rated pay-per-view event, titled Armageddon, on Sunday, December 12, 1999, an overzealous Miss Kitty flashed her breasts for less than 1 second in the 4 Corner Evening Gown Pool Match for the WWF Women’s title. WWF censors immediately placed a towel over her chest. The WWF apologizes for this unauthorized exposure.”

    Brown tried a springboard move off the ropes and slipped and looked like he could have really hurt himself. They set up a double-hip toss spot on Bulldog which was completely messed up with Bulldog also landing wrong and you could see, and in fact Ross even acknowledged Brown asking him if he was okay. He was and they did a long double suplex spot. They did a double elbow spot on Bulldog that his bump was totally mistimed. Brown did a great sunset flip power bomb off the top spot on Venis but Bulldog pulled ref Teddy Long out from making the pin. Brown set up his power bomb, but Bulldog jumped way early so the move was a mess

    Apparently they had just allowed MMA in Cali. Shows how dumb people used to be about it.

    The CSAC wanted regulation boxing gloves, which would actually make for more dangerous fights because they’d greatly restrict the ability to grapple, which is of course, a lot less dangerous that pounding someone with punches. The compromise was to make a denser glove, so it would be larger, but it would also allow for grappling, but the dense nature would actually make punches thrown that much more damaging to the opponent (although it should decrease damage to the hand to the person throwing the punches) then the idea brought to the table. It’s another example of total ignorance of what they’re regulating and forcing changes to make things more dangerous under the guise of safety

    So this when Rhodes was feuding with Corino and was brought in as the hardcore inventor and legend to smart marks

    Rhodes was billed as the leader of the hardcore revolution and got a huge reaction as expected. The funny thing is that 12 years ago, he was by far, more than Hogan or Hellwig or anyone, the most hated wrestler by the hardcore fans in the business. It got so bad at one point that he wouldn’t do live interviews at the studio in Atlanta because the fans would boo him out of the place and he booked himself as the top babyface. One year it got so bad that he told PWI, which was the leading wrestling magazine at the time which actually was a fairly powerful entity in the business, that if they didn’t give him the most popular wrestler award (and remember, this was when Hogan was in his prime and Piper has just turned face and was almost as popular as Hogan) that they wouldn’t allow PWI access.

Goldberg stood there forever waiting to spear Hall. Nash stood there forever with his thumb up his ass until he hit Hart in the knee with the belt. Hart was knocked out by a punch to the knee and Goldberg jackhammered Hall. Since Hall and Goldberg were the legal men, the ref counted as Nash pinned Hart in 6:19 to win the title.

    I used to love Politically Incorrect but I never saw this episode.

    The show degenerated from the start because Maher opened by saying he watched a lot of wrestling to prepare for the show and said that unlike in the old days, the audience today is in on the joke. Piper and Madusa acted like he said wrestling was a joke so Piper pulled down his pants and said he had an artificial hip and said that Owen Hart had died and tell Mrs. Hart that pro wrestling was a joke, which Maher then calmly repeated that he never said wrestling was a joke. The show never recovered, as Piper basically tried to argue that wrestling was real and how A&E and that “Secrets” show were all lies and said how it was only guys who never made it who are the ones saying pro wrestling wasn’t a real sport (you know, guys like McMahon, Austin, Rock, Hogan). Madusa tried to back up Piper but she didn’t really know what she was saying, other than making a ludicrous comment that WCW’s ratings were beating Monday Night Football

    • LScisco

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Well saying “the audience is in on the joke” implies there’s a joke so I can see why an über defensive wrestler might overreact and thinking being in on the joke was referring to wrestling as a joke.

      He should have said “in on the secret.”

  • jobber123

    Sting on the other hand did admit that he’s not hitting someone in the head as hard as he could with a baseball bat when Maher pointed out he’s seen him hit people in the head with a baseball bat and they don’t die, and said he knows the technique, that he uses a real bat, and that he could hit Maher with it and not hurt him which sort of contradicted the point Piper was trying to make.

    How Vince got hired as announcer

    Ray Morgan approached Vincent J. McMahon and demanded AFTRA/SAG union national talent fee because the program was airing in a number of cities. McMahon offered to raise it from local to regional fees. Morgan felt he had the upper hand and McMahon couldn’t do the show without him. McMahon asked me if he had to pay the national union fee rate. I advised had to pay at least the regional fee because many stations were union shops and wouldn’t air the show if Morgan filed a grievance. The only exception I knew would be if Vince or a member of the family were to do the announcing, then he could bypass the union rate, so long as the union dues and pension fund fees were paid. Vincent K. McMahon, who was employed at Capitol Wrestling doing entry level jobs now was paid nothing above his regular small salary to do the announcing.

    • jobber123

      In order to make a living, Vincent K. McMahon had to promote some small markets. He was not just handed those towns. He had to buy out the local promoter with his own money or find a town that had not been previously promoted. We are talking metropolises like Burlington and Rutland, VT, Bangor and Augusta, ME and Nashua, NH. To make, $50, $75 or $100, he drove to those events in a near wreck of a blue Buick. Our invoices for his advertising and promotional expenses were billed to him directly in West Hartford, CT, where he was living in a trailer park with Linda, Shane and Stephanie, who was a baby at the time. He often carried bricks on construction jobs to earn a few extra dollars. Howard Finkel, who helped Vince worked at the Marlin Firearms Factory in the first aid department. Bills went to West Yarmouth and were always separate from those for Capital Wrestling. Vincent J. McMahon made it quite clear to me that his son had to pay his own bills and I was not to look to Capitol Wrestling if he fell behind.

    Vincent K. offered a number of times to buy the additional few percentage points from his father to get controlling interest. He was repeatedly turned down. When Vincent J. became ill, he set the terms for the complete buy-out. They were harsh. I know because I was there. Over the next two year period of the buy out as Vincent K. took more control, we began to expand into other territories. Vincent K’s obtaining controlling interest would not be complete until the last penny was paid after two years. This resulted in numerous disputes between father and son. On one occasion, we had cleared TV in Cleveland. When the inactive Cleveland promoter complained, Vincent J. promptly gave him the TV clearance. This all took place in a limo with the promoter who that night was Vincent J’s guest and neighbor in Fort Lauderdale on the way to the traditional dinner at Jimmy Weston’s following a Madison Square Garden event. Vincent K. could do nothing. He was still in the two year period of buying out his father. A few years later, when the local promoter vacated the market, we negotiated a new agreement.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Nova Scotia.

      • Starscreamlive

        That’s where the Trailer Park Boys are from, right? They have a pretty low cost of living.

    • Probably Newfoundland or Saskatchewan.

    • But even Peterborough which is less than 2 hours from Toronto and a decent enough small city has housing options for 200-300k. Less depending on your standard

    • Gatineau is lot cheaper than living across the river in Ottawa. Like, the same house will cost at least half as much. But you’ll also pay more in income taxes, car registration, and a bunch of little things that add up. Still, it’s probably the best bargain overall if you still want to live in a metropolitan city.

    • According to this site, the answer is Southwestern Ontario. Windsor is right across the border from Detroit (fun fact, it’s actually south of Detroit, and thus obviously where the boy from Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” lived). London is a nicer city and it located two hours from Detroit and Toronto, so you’re close enough to being in a big city while living in a “big enough” city. Also I grew up near there before escaping moving to Ottawa.

    I’m watching Hogan vs Flair from Bash at the Beach 1994 and it’s own way this is a totally awesome match.

    • Sexy Miz

      Hogan had a way of making things feel more epic than they should.

    • Dwayne

      I love how Hogan came over and WCW wasted no time in making him the man

      • Dwayne

        But Vince did the same thing in 84

      • jobber123

        It was the right move but they didn’t have anyone to reign him in and the same stuff that made them become national cable power house killed them off too. This killed my interest in WCW at the time for the most part though.

        • Dwayne

          WCW was on a nice run in early 94 and became a new company as soon as Hogan came on board

  • jobber123

    I would have absolutely bought the brass knuckles as the finish at time. Make Hogan chase flair even thought that crowd was rabid.

    • Biff ♥ You

      I never understood why they didn’t draw that out. Have Flair remain a babyface, and have Hogan and Flair form a Superpowers-esque team for a few months. Then have Flair turn heel at Halloween Havoc, and bammo, super main for Starrcade.

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        Hogan & Flair vs Vader & Rude at Bash at the Beach 94? Or was that when Rude was hurt?

        • Biff ♥ You

          Rude was hurt by that point I think. But you could do Vader teaming with someone else, Orndorff or Windham.

          • jobber123

            And right before Rude got hurt he flat out told Sullivan and Bischoff he wasn’t going to do any business with Hogan.

    Piggybacking off jobber’s comment, why don’t we get brass knucks in wrestling anymore?

    At this rate, I’d take the old “piece of rolled steel in the tights” or those “knucks that look like you’re wrapping your fingers in marshmallow” that WWF guys used to use all the time.

    They could have had Flair & Vader join forces at BatB 94 to keep the belt on Flair and build a rematch. At Halloween Havoc, do Hogan & Sting vs Flair & Vader. Then Hogan-Flair II at Starrcade, before moving on to Hogan-Vader

    • cabspaintedyellow

      That would have derailed the beginning of the year-long narrative of Flair being Hogan’s exclusive whipping boy.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    When Flair turned heel on Sting again at that 94 Clash, they could have used it to build a tag main for Bash at the Beach. Flair & Vader bury the hatchet to kill off Sting, but Hogan saves in his big debut. Stinger invites hit to be his tag partner at BatB 94. Hogan & Sting def Flair & Vader. Then build the Flair-Hogan title match for Halloween Havoc and Starrcade

    Here is a little more information regarding the Alberto Rodriguez incident in Leoben, Austria on 12/31. This is from an eye witness who saw everything. Alberto and Guillermo Rodriguez were at a club after the 12/30 show. They were scheduled to be driven from Leobon to Vienna about 100 miles or more, at 2:30 a.m. that night to get to the airport for their early morning flight. Alberto was having such a good time that he asked promoter Chris Raaber if he could stay an extra day and celebrate New Year’s Eve in Austria and that he’d use his miles to re-book the flights for himself and his brother. Raaber agreed to it. At some point later there was a misunderstanding between Alberto and a 26-year-old Austrian, resulting in a scuffle and punches were thrown. Guillermo saw his brother in a fight and joined in, not knowing what the situation was. He said the other person wasn’t hurt that badly, but he was bruised up and taken to the hospital, but past a few bruises was okay. Police were called and they were taken in to the station. Alberto was very upset. Nobody knows exactly how the Alberto fight with Guillermo started since both were talking Spanish. The belief is that Guillermo was trying to calm his brother down and Alberto got mad about it. They did start fighting although the story that Alberto knocked his brother out was exaggerated. Alberto did rip through the zip-ties they put on him but the ankle shackles that they put on him were on his wrists, not his ankles, and that finally got him to calm down. There was a back of a chair broken and some blood splattered on the wall. Guillermo actually was taken to two different hospitals and then took a train to the airport in Vienna and went home the next morning. Alberto took a cab to the airport and went home. Once everyone calmed down, the police were really nice to Alberto. Part of it may have been because Raaber’s wife is a police woman and Raaber is something of a local celebrity. The police actually asked that when Alberto comes back for the promotion if they could have him come to the police station and meet with them and take photos with him under better circumstances. When someone is taken to the hospital after being hurt in a fight, the hospital is required by law in Austria to press charges for assault, but there would be no problem with Alberto returning and he is scheduled to return for a match later this year. As for Raaber himself, he had mixed feelings as the old school part of him thought it got a lot of publicity and in the end, a star wrestler was portrayed as a real tough guy in real life in the local media

    Ryback on his podcast blasted Cena. “He’s been a piece of shit to me since day one. When people hear what really happened with (Alex Riley), they’re gonna lose their shit.” Ryback said that Cena buried Riley in front of everyone for no reason while Riley was in a match even though Riley was working his ass off and getting a reaction. “I swear to God, his (Riley) career is over for no f***ing reason because of John and his personal issues.” Ryback claimed that Cena was a poison to the wrestling business and hurt a lot of the new talent. He said he was speaking up for the guys on the roster because they can’t speak up about that subject

          Cabana didn’t really bad-mouth Cena, he just said that the dude is weird and intense.

          Punk backed that up, but also said that he liked working with him and he was very talented.

        Exactly. Punk had nothing to lose but he also had nothing to gain either, he didn’t care. Guys like Alex Riley and Ryback NEEEEED a reason for people to give a shit about them, why not attack the most famous working wrestler?

    Kind of a brutal “tribute” to a guy.

    It’s kind of crazy revisionist history to say that Corbin wasn’t over in NXT. The crowds definitely had his support when he started his crazy rampage of 10-second matches.

    • Oh yeah, one of my favorite things about Corbin matches was the crowd counting up until the pinfall happened.

      • Phrederic

        Right, and the author saying that was them ‘mocking’ Corbin didn’t get it.

        He was over as fuck with the Full Sail crowd for a long time. He was clearly the face in that Bull Dempsey feud. There was a weird hiccup post-Dempsey pre-Rhyno where he wasn’t super popular, but when he turned heel and did well in the first Dusty Classic he was popular til he left.

        He wasn’t the MOST over guy in NXT, but he’s not fucking Elias Sampson.

  • Fanboy alert: While it worries me that AGAIN, Nintendo is not shipping out a lot of Switches just like they did with the Mini NES, I can sort of see where they’re coming from.

    They made too many 3DS when they first launched and too many Wii U’s to the point where they had to drastically lower the price for the 3DS and were pretty much shit out of luck with the Wii U.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      So this is some sort of console?

      • Yep, it’s a portable console. Hooks up to your television, but then you can take the tablet portion out and bring it with you on the go. They’ve showed the most recent Skyrim being playable on it.

  • Phrederic

    So I shaved recently, but I didn’t get a haircut yet so I still have the longish, floppy ‘do.

    Good lord I didn’t realize just how dramatically better Rodgers got in the last half of the season. Finished the last 7 games with 19 TD 0 INT. Finished with 40 TD overall. 104 passer rating. That’s disgusting.

  • Hall better have some amazing work rate or I call bullshit on the guy

  • Was anyone a fan of Zack Gowen? Everything about him just screamed “giant dork”, and he was the least intimidating human being ever. And that’s before you realize he only has one leg.

    Like, he wrestled shirtless and had quite possibly the worst physique of any wrestler I’ve ever seen. I think Ellsworth has more definition than Gowen ever did.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I didn’t dislike him, I hated the whole idea. Felt like a rib, just making fun of handicapped people.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      He was on an episode of American Ninja Warrior and I couldn’t help but root for him.

    • I’ve never heard anyone declare a particular fandom of Zack Gowan.

    • Curtis Williams

      In kayfabe terms, I can’t think highly of you if you’re getting manhandled by Vince.

  • So the real question is when does Scott Keith show up in the BoD

    • Bobby

      Scott is Vince, Bayless is GM Gorilla.

    • He’s like Triple H in 2016, he’ll show up, pedigree two of the big dogs here and then never come back.

    Hey Bayless, when is the BoD Rumble, by the way?

            It’s William Shirer, same guy that wrote The Berlin Diary which is a fantastic first-person take on everything from about 1934 to 1940 when he was stationed there as Edward Murrow’s assistant. Both books are really good and I’ve read them several times.

      I broke the all-time high score on the Twister pinball machine at my theatre while waiting for that flick to start. I got three replays and purposely tanked my last ball because my buddy came to tell me that the previews were starting. It’s still my proudest achievement in games.

  • RudoWakening

    This Almas/Lorcan match is fun.

    • aboynamedart

      Go fig, they have good chemistry in the ring. The Strong/Almas segments in the four-way weren’t bad, either.

      Let’s hear it for the city of San Diego telling the NFL to pound sand.

    “The whole organization is obviously run by amateurs. The product on the field, marketing blunders, concessions, drafting players. They fail in literally every way they can. Not any different than the other teams that asshole owns.”

      What’s so bad about LA having two teams they don’t want? Oh wait, everything.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        2 teams no one wants.

  • Marvissey – #11

    I got so into my book I almost forgot there was new Always Sunny tonight! Yay!

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Which book?

      • Marvissey – #11

        Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer, I think this might be reread number six? I’m not sure. It’s my first run on the Kindle though and it’s so much nicer than holding a 1400 page (including forewords and citations) behemoth

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Oh yeah! That’s a well known book! I should read that one sometime.

  • The Professor

    So San Diego will now have only one pro team: the padres. How sad for such a large city?

    • Aaron

      Approximately seven San Diegans care. They’re not paying that kind of rent to watch sports.

      • jobber123

        They do care way more about the Chargers than the Padres though. It is kind of sad for sure.

    • Marvissey – #11

      It’s a city of transplants, mostly military. They only have sports so that fans can come watch the away team

      • jobber123

        So unlike the Padres the Chargers really do have a rabid fan base. It does shut down during Chargers games. But the thing is people don’t go to the games for several reasons, but the two major ones are the stadium is really shitty and mission valley is the worst place to put it for getting to and back. But we weren;t going to pay and they weren’t so that is brutal, but I hate the chargers because so many of their fans are total shit talkers about the 49ers.

      Which song? Or a new one?

      Why is it off the table? What did I miss?

    • Aaron

      In the olden days you didn’t have a whole lot of Black heels. They probably didn’t think of it.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Johnny Gargano is incapable of having a bad match. I’m not sold on the Revival yet.

      • RudoWakening

        Really?! They are basically a perfect tag team. Dash and Dawson do everything right in terms of cheating, Double teams, and getting heat.

        • Aaron

          They’re too mainstream. Kenny didn’t get to like them before they were cool, with his $200 haircut.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Come on man.

        The Revival have yet to have a nbad match.

        They are also the ONLY WWE tag team i’ve eseen truly master heelish cheating in like a decade and they’re some of the besty in the world at it.

        The Revival are amazing, there’s no need to hold out on them.

        We’d think they were gods if they were in ROH and I actually watched them regularly instead of at Takeovers.

      • Yeah, I heard that, but I doubt they want to throw Taker in there with a green as grass big guy.

    • itwastyped

      Feels like they’re setting up Cena/Taker to me… Taker’s in the Rumble which I doubt he will lose (can he even take a bump to the outside?) and Cena is likely winning the title from AJ

    LOLOL Oh no…there is this pretty fat dude at most of the tapings (400 plus) and he always sits in the same spot so he is kind of a permanent super fan type called hot tub guy. Mundo just called him out for being fat and the camera cut to him and he looked pretty fucking embarrassed lol.

    • Ioan Morris

      That’s harsh. Even Kevin Owens said calling people fat is out of line. What are you achieving except embarrassing the guy to the point that he doesn’t want to come back?

    I actually am starting to like Joey Ryan now. He had a really good match with Texano and he was really good in his battle of the bulls 4 way match. I always thought he kind of sucked.

    When your gimmick is that you drink do stone cold stunners and drink beer and flip people off you are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel for cheap pops. Mack has lots of charisma but he needs to drop the Stone Cold rip off.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    Hah, Bret screwed Bret! Pretty funny that you can do that in a video game.

  • jobber123

    So Brian Cage won some kind of magic gauntlet that gives him space powers and makes him go crazy, but he put it on and let all the fans high five him with it. That is probably not totally protecting the gimmick.

    • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

      The fans should have instantly exploded

    Kenny Omega on how awesome of a trainer Bill DeMott was:

    “A typical week training at Deep South would start at 530 am when he woke up then he ate breakfast as that was the only meal he would eat all day. They’d go warm up but DeMott cut it short as he hated warmups and said they should wake up earlier for that as he wanted to do drills. Kenny said you would do drills for several hours then stop to eat only to run sprints afterwards as if you actually ate you would just vomit. Kenny talks about coming in at 215 lbs and by the end of his Deep South run weighed 170 lbs.

    He talks about how he did not mind being the “fall guy” and would joke around to boost morale and felt the drills were awful so he felt running around the building would be better for him. Kenny said any dream of being on TV vanished as he just wanted to make everyone’s miserable day a bit better as it was a depressing situation for almost everyone. Kenny talked about guys complaining to the office and the result was a camera being put up to capture the training but the camera ended up getting turned to face the wall.”

      That is crazy.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        It’s no wonder he’s soo anti-WWE.

        DeMott was a shitlord.

    • P.K.

      That Ohmega guy sounds like a whiny bitch…

    • Marvtie Lange – #12

      I bet this shoot review is going to get way more hits than normal

      • Brian_Bayless

        Its very interesting.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      It becomes very clear why Omega is a hold out for the WWE

      He’s not going back without contract protections to be booked like a star.

  • jobber123

    Dragon Azteca just took a 10 foot drop choke slam bump through a gimmicked bleacher. That was pretty wild.

  • jobber123

    Matanza started going wild beating up random “fans” when Rey showed up to check on Azteca. That is pretty cool.

  • jobber123

    Damn Rey back dropped Matanza through the roof of Darios office off the balcony! And then Dario clears everyone out of the temple and closes it down.

  • jobber123

    And with that Lucha Underground is the off air until the summer. Hmmm…that is pretty dumb.

  • P.K.

    Allen Iverson, Kenyon Martin, Chauncey Billups and Stephen Jackson are among a group of retired NBA players who have committed to participating in a 3-on-3 league founded by the entertainer Ice Cube.

    Sounds awesome

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I’ve gotten to the point where I hear (x) former pro athlete and “committed” in the same sentence I assume the worst.

  • The Professor

    Reports say that chargers will play at the stubhub center for the 17-18 season.
    Place only seats 30k

    • To be fair, if you were the Chargers, would you rather be packing a bandbox or be like the Rams playing in a half-empty Los Angeles Coliseum that looks sad?

      • The Professor

        Very true; good point

    • Aaron

      Poor Raider fans.

  • I think part of the reason I like World Famous Flea Market is because the guys calling the matches sound like Spencer Hall and Rick from Rick and Morty.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      With a hint of Beavis and Butt-Head.

    We noted before that there were rumors of a current WWE employee that’s going into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. Word now is that WWE NXT General Manager William Regal will get the nod this year.

    Other names considered for the 2017 class are WWE’s 12th Grand Slam Champion Christian, current agent and former WWE Tag Team Champion Mike Rotunda (Irwin R. Schyster) and former WWE Tag Team Champions The Natural Disasters – John Tenta (Earthquake) and Fred Ottman (Typhoon), according to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio. Tenta would be inducted posthumously as he passed away in 2006.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Regal is well deserved but the natural disasters? Can’t remember a single memorable match from them.

      • Aaron

        They probably wanted Quake but since Uncle Fred is still alive he can accept the award.

      • P.K.

        The Natural Disasters deserve it way more than that drug addicted underachieving loser William Regal…The Natural Disasters matches with Money Inc, The Bushwackers, and The Legion Of Doom are classic matches that blow anything Regal ever did out of the water…

        They are pretty iconic characters. I remember being terrified of them even if they weren’t particularly good in the ring

  • Aaron

    I wonder if Dean Spanos fully understands that each year the Raider “home game” will be Black Hole South.

    • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

      Well it’ll be Black Hole West.

    Alp Arslan: “What would you do if I was brought before you as a prisoner?”

    Romanos: “Perhaps I’d kill you, or exhibit you in the streets of Constantinople.”

    Alp Arslan: “My punishment is far heavier. I forgive you, and set you free.”

    • Aaron

      Romanos: “Cuck”

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Everybody talks about Jeanne d’Arc. Nobody mentions Bertrand du Guesclin.

    “They are the Four Dogs of Temujin. They have foreheads of brass, their jaws are like scissors, their tongues like piercing awls, their heads are iron, their whipping tails swords . . . In the day of battle, they devour enemy flesh. Behold, they are now unleashed, and they slobber at the mouth with glee. These four dogs are Jebe, and Kublai , Jelme, and Subotai.”
