The IWIM in the midst of the Floods of '08.

The folks at the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, recently posted an update on the museum’s condition and how fundraising is going. This update, also posted below, as well as donation information, can be found here.

Some ten weeks after being devastated by the worst flood in Iowa history, the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum is working very hard to get back on its feet.

“It’s a long, somewhat painful process,” said Mike Chapman, executive director since the museum’s inception over 11 years ago. “With each passing week, we realize even more poignantly the extant of the tragedy, and also how important the museum is to thousands of wrestling fans across the nation.”

Chapman said donations have come in at a steady pace, ranging in size from $10 to $10,000. “The donations have cut through all social strata, and have been a tremendous boost to our plans.”

Matthews and York to WWE?

Tonight we're going to party like it's 1999.

Tonight we're going to party like it's 1999.

Over at Slam Wrestling, they are reporting that per Joey Matthews, that Christian York and Joey Matthews/Mercury are heading back to WWE. The announcement came after Joey Matthews cut a promo stating they were on the way out so we all wait to see if this is truth or hype.

If true, this is great news for the year 1999 back when these guys were the hottest indy tag-team in the country. Now, well, there is no tag division and their return, after months in Florida undoubtedly, will not bring it back. It’s good they are going to get a paycheck but it means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

For those of you who haven’t figured it out, WWE tag-team wrestling does not rate. On a scale of one to twenty it rates a zero. That is worse than if the scale was from one to ten.

If this is true though, it is good news for Joey Matthews as an ugly period in his career and life will hopefully come full circle and have a happy ending. He is going to need to stay clean and strong this time around and hopefully will avoid the serious injury that plagued his final few months his last time around WWE.  -Jeremy

Coming Clean About The Miz

Eat a dick Stunt Granny.

Eat a dick Stunt Granny.

Ok, I am officially embarrassed to say I am a fan of The Miz. John Morrison always seemed ok to me but after the latest Dirt Sheet at WWE.com I am officially a fan of both. Yes, it is official, I am out of the closet of The Miz and don’t feel dirty about it. So what if I am coming out too late but it’s better to get this out in the open now instead of letting it eat away at my soul. My, dirty, sinful soul.

The simple fact that this slays the 80’s and 90’s rap video archetype is not just great, it is insanely clever for a WWE production. Why these aren’t being shown on ECW is beyond me but we all here at Stunt Granny encourage everyone to check this out. -Jeremy
