    I thought it was him missing a piss test, or getting there late or something? Maybe that was somebody else though.

    I do because I remember thinking how weird it was that someone would be in trouble for that buy shit when you follow the UFC and people are getting 6 month suspensions for getting the flu and re hydrating with an IV bag.

    A google notification informed me. I was mad at first, but then realized it must have been a house show. I'm a week behind on RAW, so I didn't know the results.

    Rocky Johnson has passed away at age 75.
    Quote Originally Posted by wwe.com
    WWE is saddened to learn that Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson (born Wayde Douglas Bowles), a WWE Hall of Famer, former World Tag Team Champion, and father of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, has passed away at age 75.

    Johnson’s sports-entertainment career began in the mid-1960s when he made a memorable impression in the National Wrestling Alliance. However, Johnson found his highest levels of success when he began his WWE tenure in 1983.

    The physically imposing and wildly charismatic Johnson had several memorable rivalries with the likes of Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Don Muraco and Adrian Adonis. He found his greatest success when he teamed up with Tony Atlas as The Soul Patrol. The two men became the first African-American World Tag Team Champions in WWE history when they defeated The Wild Samoans on Dec. 10, 1983.

    The “Soul Man” retired from the ring in 1991, but his imprint continued to be felt on WWE for years to come. Post-retirement, Johnson had a hand in training his son, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Rock would become one of the biggest stars in the history of sports-entertainment and carried on his father’s legacy with pride.

    In 2008, Johnson achieved the highest honor in sports-entertainment when he was inducted by The Rock into the WWE Hall of Fame where he will be forever enshrined as one of sports-entertainment’s most influential performers.

    WWE extends its condolences to Johnson’s family, friends and fans.

    Rocky was a consummate jobber to the stars by the time he came to the WWWF. He always had a solid enough offense, but he made his opponents look especially tough. Guys who looked out of shape, especially standing next to Rocky's cut physique. Don Muraco, Playboy Buddy Rose, Adrian Adonis, an over the hill Greg the Hammer Valentine, then Iron Mike Sharpe, etc. But pairing Rocky with Tony Atlas was a terrific move, Rocky played the face in peril as well as anybody ever, until Tony Atlas could get the hot tag. Being the first black tag-team champs was treated as a big deal in the Northeast, but they were OVER. Atlas rightly gave Rocky a lot of credit for helping teach him how to work a crowd. I recall the mags at the time pointing out how blacks had never been tag champs in the WWF before them, and fans my age were like "who cares what color they are, they're good!", as older fans wanted to show the rest of the country they weren't so close minded. Vince Sr. never would have given them the titles, this was considered progress. At the same time, Vince would go on to demonstrate some truly terribly racist ideas.

    Rocky was glad to make a living performing for the fans, and my brother told me he once took his kids to see Rocky and Jimmy Snuka and a few others at an autograph session. He told me Rocky seemed truly humbled that fans would remember him so fondly, while Snuka appeared to be either hung over or completely coked up.

    RIP, Soul Man.

    Cause of death was apoarently blood clot that travelled from his leg to his lung. He was ill a few days ago and thought he had the flu but didn’t get himself checked out:

    Oh and this is Rock’s Instagram post:

    “I love you.

    You broke color barriers, became a ring legend and trail blazed your way thru this world. I was the boy sitting in the seats, watching and adoring you, my hero from afar. The boy you raised to always be proud of our cultures and proud of who and what I am. The boy you raised with the toughest of love.

    The intense work. The hard hand. The adoring boy who wanted to know only your best qualities. Who then grew to become a man realizing you had other deep complex sides that needed to be held and understood. Son to father. Man to man. That's when my adoration turned to respect. And my empathy turned to gratitude.

    Grateful that you gave me life. Grateful you gave me life's invaluable lessons. Dad, I wish I had one more shot to tell you, I love you, before you crossed over to the other side. But you were ripped away from me so fast without warning. Gone in an instant and no coming back.

    I'm in pain. But we both know it's just pain and it' ll pass. Now I'll carry your mana and work ethic with me, as it's time to move on because I have my family to feed and work to accomplish.

    Finally, I want you to rest your trailblazing soul, Soulman. Pain free, regret free, satisfied and at ease. You lived a very full, very hard, barrier breaking life and left it all in the ring. I love you dad and I'll always be your proud and grateful son.

    Go rest high."

    Beautiful.

    I actually picked up Rocky Johnson's biography from the library last week. Planning to crack into it in the next couple of days for sure.

    I am also curious about the Mayor Kane book after seeing Broken Skulls. Could be a good read.

    Was Kane actually born in Spain?

    In the rain?

    Or is that some kind of wrestling "fact" that's been repeated forever, but its not actually true?

    True but the book might uncover more about his early life and political aspirations and his parents’ military background along with all his ridiculous gimmicks which were briefly covered. Still might be worth a read.

    Imagine if Kane was younger, he'd be perfect in a Kane and Gable tag team.

    He could give the Christmas theme another run.


    If he was teamed with Ms. Rose, they would be Mandy Kane.

    PWInsider reported Tom Phillips has replaced Vic Joseph as play by play commentator on Raw. Seemed odd Joseph wasn't used at all during the Rumble so this makes sense.

    Bummer. Curious what caused the suspension. Glad he's keeping the belt in the meantime. Nice way of taking him off TV on RAW.

    Wish they brought back that rule that you must defend your title within 30 days of your last defense. Maybe not actually cause then Lesnar wouldn't be our champ.
