Ben Roethlisberger Guest Hosting Next Week’s Raw

Don't front.

Don't front.

According to every single place ever on the internet, including sites that haven’t been updated since 1996, Big Ben Roethlisberger will be the guest host next week for Monday Night Raw, as it comes at you live from the Wachovia Center in beatiful, scenic, rustic, historic Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. That’s right, my double main, the starting QB on my fantasy football team, coming at you in stunning high definition on Monday Night’s premier wrestling extravaganza!

There’s only one small problem. The quarterback is apparently going to be taking his offensive linemen with him, and according to left tackle Max Starks, no one bothered to tell to any of the coaching staff that they would be there. Now, the Steelers play on Sunday, have a team meeting on Monday, and have off on Tuesday, so it’s not really that big of a deal, but you know all the talking heads and football announcers are going to have a field day with it, so I hope Ben is prepared for that.

And, real quick, what is it with people whenever something wrestling related comes up in the news? Like, you just know if Big Ben takes a hit on Sunday, some announcer dumbass is going to say that the guy PILEDROVE HIM down to the grass or whatever. And then the other guy will laugh for like an hour and a half at it, and then they’ll joke about how wrestling is probably fake har har, and then I’ll stab myself and die in a puddle of my own vomit. – Dusty

Matt Morgan Has ADHD

This is a day for good pub for TNA, it looks like, because I have nothing bad or sarcastic to say in this post either. In the above video, Matt Morgan talks about his dealing with ADHD. As sappy as this sounds, something like this can really make him a role model for children growing up with ADHD. There are much worse people to look up to, in this day and age, than a seven foot butt kicking wrestler.

There was a nicely written article about Matt Morgan and ADHD that you can read here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-b-laskoff/matt-morgan-youre-my-hero_b_192340.html. For more information about ADHD, go here: www.chadd.org. – Dusty

Samoa Joe Tweets for Tsunami Help‎

A serious picture for a serious post.

A serious picture for a serious post.

On the opposite side of the human being spectrum is Samoa Joe, who has used his Twitter page to ask people to help donate for tsunami relief:

Please give to help in Samoa’s recovery. Please I implore you to help… If you’re American be rest assured you are helping fellow Americans.

Joe went on to write that his family is accounted for, but the amount of damage is staggering. The body count is now in the hundreds. This is a tremendous example of someone using their celebrity for a good cause. I applaud Samoa Joe in his efforts. If you wish to contribute to this cause, go to american.redcross.org for more information. – Dusty

Matt Hardy is a whining bitch

What an absolute chump.

What an absolute chump.

From this Twitter page:

I’m exhausted from being punished because of someone else’s sins.

So Matt Hardy thinks he is being held back because of what happened with his brother. This is yet another sad day for personal responsibility. I would posit that perhaps, just perhaps now, Matt Hardy is being punished for being a goofy redneck who recently gained a bunch of weight, cannot talk to save his life, and has modest in-ring skills at best.

But instead of taking responsibility for being the complete and utter liability and waste of roster space that he is, he’d rather blame it on what has happened with Jeff recently. What a miserable excuse for a human being. – Dusty

YouTube Wrestling Treasures #3: Jim Cornette

In honor of Jim’s escape from the line-crossingest place on Earth, I felt people should see some wonderful and “wonderful” clips of Mama Cornette’s baby boy.

I could post about 5,976 more wonderful James E. clips but I thought this was a nice sampler. – Jordan

ROH Is Watchable Again!

General Cornette commands you to watch good wrestling!

General Cornette commands you to watch good wrestling!

That breath of fresh air you all just collectively breathed in was a direct result of what is coming to us from prowrestling.net from their live report of Saturday night’s ROH show. That being, Jim Cornette is back as the “executive producer” of ROH.

Cornette was quoted as saying, “Sarah Palin will give Barack Obama a lap dance on the  steps of the capital before I get behind Vince Russo,” and had some truthful things to say about the Hornswoggle and Cody Deaner characters as well. He reiterated what he said on his Who’s Slamming Who interview, which I posted this past week in case you haven’t listened to it yet, that he was let go from TNA because he could never be 100 percent behind Vince Russo’s creative direction.

Cornette ran an angle on the show with Austin Aries, with Aries interrupting Cornette’s speech and getting all up in his grill. Cornette said Aries has been weaseling out of facing tough competition and said if he had anything to say about it, Aries would be facing much harder opponents from here on out.

This is great news for ROH, and great news for professional wrestling. As I’ve stated before, TNA doesn’t appear to be a serious wrestling company at this point, after the laughable decision to head up their creative team with Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara. And WWE is never going to promote a serious wrestling product. WWE needs competition in order to stay interesting, and here’s hoping that with Cornette in a prominent position with the company, ROH can once again be that alternative. – Dusty

Godzilla and King Kong really knew how to rampage

Godzilla and King Kong really knew how to rampage

Dusty and Kevin take a spin on the turn tables this week. We talked on a couple of “old” topics that are keeping our interest, Jim Cornette & Bret Hart, a new star that could be created and his Vince McMahon-esque ex-employer,  Quinton “Rampage” Jackson & Dana White, then finally meander our way into talking about some of the problems on Raw with the lone highlight coming from a now replaced Diva and end on a positive note yapping about the quality of ECW.
