    He was on an ep of Mayor of Kingstown. Played a big racist piece of trash.

    My son is currently at the University of Tennessee for a scout conference. During the first night there during the opening ceremony or whatever it was called during one of the many videos Glenn Jacobs was on there welcoming them or something.

    Later that night my son texts the family group chat and goes I just realized Kane is the mayor around here. I saw him in a promotional video and thought he looked familiar.

    Glory Pro is running another big show at the Pageant in September. Tickets go on sale tomorrow and they are announcing talent coming in. Danhausen coming back. Impact World Champion Josh Alexander is coming in. Matt Sydal, Delirious, Effy, and Allie Katch along with the local talent like Dan the Dad, Mike Outlaw, Tootie Lynn, Warhorse, etc. I am sure Davey Richards will work the show. Rohit Raju and Jake Something usually doing Glory Pro shows even though the both missed this weekends show. Jake was working with New Japan and was double booked.

    Random Youtube watching while I'm absorbing as much air conditioning as I can in this 98.8 degree humidity. Its like walking through a bowl of soup outside where I live.

    But I'll be damned, this is one Hell of a little TV match. I never realized it, but Marcus Bagwell and 2 Cold Scorpio were a seriously underrated little team. 2 Cold was a super young dude in 1993 (even though he doesn't look like he's aged a day in 2022 - Seriously, black don't crack) but he was called on to be the veteran for his team. Bagwell was good enough to pull off his end, but he was so green he'd glow in the dark if you turned the lights off in the arena.

    But Austin and Pillman were the real highlights. I know I'm not saying anything revolutionary, but The Hollywood Blondes should have been a million dollar team. They could have been a modern day ("modern" as of 1993) combination of The Brainbusters and The Midnight Express. Instead, they were cut off at the knees because of The Hulkster, brother!

    But yeah, this one is fantastic. It really comes together as a solid, old-school Southern wrestling tag-team match. The Blondes get some fantastic heat on 2 Cold Scorpio. Bagwell really gets a solid hot-tag and the heels cheat to win. Its simple shit, but its done really well.

    A couple little highlights.

    Austin proving he has no moves, trying to dance the cabbage patch to mock Scorpio. Ha.

    Bagwell pops a nice, simple comeback and Austin and Pillman go all the way in the bump and feed. Pillman literally and very plainly jumps into Bagwell's arms for a scoop slam.

    The finish gets a little ugly. Scorpio throws a dropkick on Austin but lands on Pillman's knee as Pillman is setting something up with Bagwell. Austin and Scorpio fight out, Bagwell scores a Northern-Lights suplex into a pin on Pillman, but Austin rakes the eyes of Scorpio, pops back in, and hits an elbow to the exposed ribs of Bagwell, for the win. Simple move, but it works.

    This one's well worth checking out.

    Holy Jesus Christ Magilla Gorilla Sampson!

    Damn. Just damn. When people talk about how Vince and the WWF guys "buried" the WCW/ECW guys during the Invasion, its shit like this that they're thinking of. The APA beat Kanyon and Bill Demott like they owe them money. They beat Kanyon and Demott like whores in church. They beat Kanyon and Demott like a horny teenager discovering Pornhub for the first time beats his... well... yeah.

    I've seen more even matches between chipmunks trying to cross the road and tractor trailer trucks.

    Its like the APA fell into a time warp and somebody told them Kanyon and Demott were actually The Public Enemy.

    Just... damn.

    Explain this comment. I've never heard of the story about Hogan wanting to split up the Hollywood Blondes. What for? He didn't feud with either of them. There's the story of Austin supposedly pitching an angle similar to Evad the super Hogan fan to Dusty and they were naw baby we got something else for you. Pillman and Hogan never worked together directly.

    I'm glad they were split up though. Butterfly Effect is a motherfucker. Do we get 3:16? Does Pillman die? One of my best friends loved the Blondes especially Stunning Steve. And he became a big Pillman fan too out of it. He probably would've loved a multi-year run out of these guys. How different would wrestling be if those 2 stayed a tag-team until like 1998 and then broke up??

    We'd probably still be in the New Generation era. Wouldn't complain, I loved that era. I'm all for occupation gimmicks, and punny names.

    Pillman was a Ric Flair project. Austin was a favorite of Flair to wrestle. When Flair had the book and some degree of power, he booked The Blondes/Horsemen and himself vs. Pillman. They were featured well under him and even wrestled Flair and Arn Anderson on Clash of The Champions.

    Hogan comes in and all of a sudden, Flair flips heel to be his first opponent, The Blondes split up, and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan (a friend of Hogan) beats Steve Austin in a matter of seconds for the TV title.

    Suddenly, both guys are depushed and deemphasized and Austin quits and heads for ECW.

    Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Eddie Guerrero? Does this match get a pay-per-view slot? No. A major Monday Nitro featured spot? Nope. A Mexico House Show Main Event? Yeah right.

    In the most "WCW move" possible, WCW brings in Jushin Liger and books him on the D-show.

    This wasn't the only time this happened: WCW would book Liger in 2000. When they were asked who he'd be booked with, they responded, "Oh, he's going to be wrestling The Frog on Worldwide".

    Jesus Christ.

    Kind of a "nothing" match, but I've always been an Ice Train mark. Dude was the 90's version of Powerhouse Hobbs or Big E, but without 1/100th of their charisma. Scott Norton was a shoot arm wrestling champion who could probably rip your arm off and beat you to death with it, but he had as much personal charisma as a big chunk of wood.

    Bill Watts was in and out of WCW in prominent booking positions, and somehow it seems like he either never saw Ice Train, or just didn't see anything in him. Because a Bill Watts looking for his "new Junkyard Dog" would have pushed Ice Train through the ceiling.

    How about when they flew in Hayabusa for Worldwide and didn't end up using him? Lol. I mean I get why they do some of these matches as they sometimes have these international deals for some of their shows and maybe WCW didn't have a deal for Nitro or Thunder in a particular country. So you definitely don't want that market to think WCW is nothing but Hugh Morrus and Glacier.

    JYD had charisma though and like you said, Ice Train had none. Hobbs really is Ice Train 2.0 and I liked this short feud with Norton and Train. Total 90's tag-team from the name to the gear. WCW, imo, dominated the tag scene in North America in the 90's. I would say until 1999 they had the best tag division in comparison to WWF. Maybe in 1990 when WWF still had the Hart Foundation and Demolition together but after that naw. You can't fuck with WCW.

    Late 80s/early 90s WWE tag team wrestling was the best. Kinda faded out by the time RAW debuted, but I loved Hart Foundation, Demolition, Rockers, Bushwhackers, Legion of Doom, Money Inc., Power and Glory, Orient Express, Beverly Brothers, Brain Busters, Quebecers, Steiners, Natural Disasters etc.

    I think the reason I am such a big fan of tag team wrestling is because of this right here.

    It was the Golden Era for Tag Teams. Every wrestling fan had multiple favorites.

    I loved Demolition. Then LOD came in. Good stuff. Also loved the Hart Foundation. How many of us didn't get two of our friends and try to do a Hart Attack?

    WCW had their own version of The Smackdown! Six in 1999. Benoit and Dean Malenko, Raven and Saturn, and Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman. Its just a shame that those six didn't last as long as the Smackdown! Six did, because their matches were always good.

    Hell, I was a mark for The Jersey Triad and Curt Hennig and Barry Whendam.

    If anybody isn't, you should totally check out Booker T's Reality Of Wrestling promotion. Roxanne Perez (known as Roc-C in ROW) got her start in ROW before she wound up in NXT. AQA (another female standout from ROW) has made a few shots for AEW. They're a fun promotion, doing old-school local-style wrestling TV.

    Obviously, this is a one-night women's tournament to honor Sheri Martell; Some of the talent in the early-round matches is... questionable... but you'll get that from a wrestling school show. But Hyan, Raychel Rose, Promise Braxton, and a few others are legitimate standouts. Braxton and Hyan's match is legit very good. On par with the best of AEW, at least. Probably a good step down from WWE. But again, they're wrestling school students. Experienced students, mind. But still students. If you want a couple hours of solid indie women's wrestling, you should give this one a shot. And give ROW's weekly show a shot, too.

    Oh, and this show sets up a Booker T heel turn and a feud, seemingly, with his own wife, a returning Sharmell. There's a lot to like here.

    It's a better song than Ninja Rap but for obvious reasons more people know Ninja Rap. Ninja has the better hook though.

    The fella in the purple jacket looks like a young Santino Marella, especially in the face.

    I recall when Tony Khan purchased ROH, that Samoa Joe and Triple H pushed Vince to buy ROH.

    With Triple H, Stephanie, and Nick Khan in charge, will we see them purchasing anything?

    Probably not. They probably wanted Vince to buy the tape library for ROH which is all Tony did. The ROH titles are meaningless it's like watching late 90's WWF when they tried to pretend the NWA still mattered.

    If they purchase anything it will be for the library and that is what they would have done for ROH. They would not have tried to keep it going.

    I feel like he wants to do more but it is starting to turn more into when Vince bought WCW and didn't have any kind of tv deal in place to keep it going as it own thing. Khan needs to get a tv deal or streaming in place otherwise and not just a couple random PPVs otherwise he needs to scrap ROH. I don't want to see that happen but ROH needs to be its own thing and not have titles defended on AEW shows. Cross promotion stuff is fine here and there but yeah if you don't have anything in place move on and take advantage of having the library to go with your other content once you get a streaming deal in place.

    It's too bad Vince didn't have the Network or streaming platforms in 2001 like today because I feel like that would've been an easier way to keep WCW around as another brand for the company. They had plans to keep WCW, even did a press release and everyone has confirmed it but something happened where all of that went out the window.

    I remember when TK bought ROH there were all these rumors that AEW was going to be on HBO Max and they needed content. But nothing has came of that. So it makes you wonder what's been doing on? The guy has a shit load of money and has 2 shows on Youtube. Why not make 1 of those the ROH show? It would probably get as many views as they did on Fox 17 at 5pm on Saturday.

    Sigh.....


    If one of those shows switched to ROH, how would we keep inflating AEW specific win-loss records? Do you wanna live in a world where Frankie Kazarian has a win/loss record below 90%, and his record reflects the matches the majority of fans have seen.

    Come on man. That would be anarchy.

    Good point. Easy enough to switch one of the youtube shows to an ROH show. Especially since you are doing tapings down in Florida still for one of the shows. Fly the talent down there and knock out a few weeks.

    I'm curious who is even considered an ROH exclusive talent.

    Yeah I am not sure. Seems like Colt is. Lethal had become AEW before the sale but he has mostly been involved with ROH stuff. Castle and the Boys are probably ROH exclusive. I think there are some that will be mostly ROH but not exclusive but hard to say since he doesn't have anything in place for ROH yet.

    There was a lot of scuttlebutt and rumor that WWE. at one point anyway, were making overtures toward either buying or financially backing ICW and/or EVOLVE and/or Progress Wrestling over in the UK. That was before the "Great Outing" from a few years ago where every major (or not so major, in some cases) UK indie talent was outed as some kind of sex pest/abuser/rapist/some kind of horrible sex monster. Then WWE just made NXT UK a thing. And wouldn't you know it; Some of their guys were named in that, too.

    Just saw on the front page a few days ago, Dalton Castle is calling himself a "Free Agent" now. Seems like he's not a Ring of Honor talent anymore.

    Dalton Castle is someone who should've been in the WWE 5-6 years ago. I know why he didn't, he's talked about it, the fear of his gimmick being watered down or portraying someone completely different. I just feel like he needed a platform like WWE, TNA, or maybe even Mexico to do that gimmick to the best of his ability.

    I haven't seen much of Dalton. Interesting that he is a free agent. He is currently part of the 6 man champs for ROH but then again he doesn't have to be signed to ROH or AEW really. Probably a pay per apperance deal.

    Coming soon to an extremely under-hyped Rampage Main Event Near You! -- Ring of Honor Six-Man Tag-Team Champions Dalton Castle And The Boys vs. Kenny Omega And The Young Bucks -- AEW Trios Champions -- In A Winning Team Takes All Six-Man Championship Unification Match.

    That, of course, Kenny McFingerBang and The Young Cucks win over the unknown dude who looks like a weird combination of Liberace and Charles Manson and his two indentured sex slaves/tag-team partners.

    Are we really shocked here let’s be honest.

    Spudz at times basically is still in the mindset that this is the wrestling forum version of 4chan and not always self-aware of what is/isn’t acceptable these days. He still lives in the old school mindset I think.

    But I know from previous experience that he can debate! *hint hint*

    But whether you debate or not, you need to tone it down man. Don’t forget I stopped you from making a further arse of your self when you had that debate with mth which I won’t go into specifics but could’ve landed you in worse trouble. Chill man.

    Isn't it a little bit interesting that Haku and Barbarian started teaming up in the WWF, just because they were under the same manager. Then they'd come to WCW and eventually team up, with an actual name, because they were both under the same manager?

    Barb's gear looks ridiculous here. He's like a big Tongan Wendigo. Hey Barb, be a dear and... well... be a deer.

    The legendary story about Barb, who wasn't a drinker, tying one or two or 15 on at a bar and then refusing to leave when they tried to close, is fucking incredible. Barb beat up 7 cops and it took Barb's wife, who everybody was scared of, to get him to leave.

    Barbarian now sells used cars for a living. I hope he still wears that same outfit.

    The Bushwhackers are terrible. The Daniel Stern movie "Bushwhacked" is terrible, too. These are two unrelated things.

    Not that interesting. So basically WCW did what they usually did, take a WWF idea and go with it.

    I loved the Barbarian's look in WWE. Same with Warlord. I suppose I only caught the tail end of the Powers of Pain, but I really enjoyed their singles runs.

    I was never a big fan of Powers of Pain beyond the feud with Demolition. I liked them as singles wrestlers. Warlord had such a badass look.

    Just reading up on Warlord's post WWF career wow that guy went through some shit I never knew about.
