PWO – Season 3 – Episode 15

I'm pretty sure Anna Kournikova is still the hottest tennis player that will get us extra hits even though she hasn't played in nearly a decade. Find out why I reference her after the jump.

 

Two random guys started talking about some story. They said they’re in the PWO to improve their skills. Flip Kendrick & Louis Linden, Aerofrom, are ready to splash. Analysis: That was a weird way to introduce them. They were on PWO TV during one of the CWE matches. Always like the change of starting with a promo instead of going straight into a match. Score: 0.
 
Louis Linden took on Brian Bender in the first match.  During the slow start to the match, the announcers talked about the main event of Gregory Iron versus Johnny Gargano.Bender used his size and power advantage to get on top early.Bender ht a nice looking double underhook suplex but only got a two count. Maguire told him that he had to fire Mr. Brinks. Linden turned things around with a head sciccors.Linden got a two count after a missile drop kick. Bender went for a small package, but Linden turned it around and got the three count.
 
Analysis:It was an OK match. Linden didn’t get to sh off to much of his offense since Bender dominated most  it. They’re continuing Bender’s losing streak since The Clash had to split up because of an injury to Earnie Ballz. Score: 0.
 
N8 Mattson, with Benjamn Boone, said he wants to add someone to the Sons of Michigan. Mattson then introduced Ben Fruth as Boone’s little brother.  Fruth said it was “good” that he was a Son of Michigan. Fruth was worried about finding Mike Tolar (and even had a shirt on that said “Have You Seen Me?” with a picture of Mike Tolar.) Mattson & Boone told him to stop worrying about Tolar because he’s a Son of Michigan now and they stormed off.

Happy birthday, pro wrestlers! (April 28-May 4)

I hope for your sake you can climb that ladder behind you.

Let’s see how often I can keep this up (I guess it depends on how un-busy I stay at work):

Well shit, looks like I need to find something else to do. -Eric

Movie news: Gorgeous George biopic, DDP/Danny Trejo flick expected

"Read my interview or I'll kill you."

What a weird (but awesome) place to find professional wrestling information: According to The AV Club, WWE Films is slated to film a biopic on recently inducted WWE Hall of Famer Gorgeous George, based on the book “Gorgeous George: The Outrageous Bad-Boy Wrestler Who Created American Popular Culture.”

The picture breaks McMahon’s odd, self-imposed code of never doing a film about wrestlers, an exception he made because of the unique historical impact George had—not only within the world of professional wrestling (which borrowed all of his flamboyance and outsized theatricality, and the idea that audiences love rooting against a bad guy almost more than rooting for the good guy), but well beyond it. Both Muhammad Ali and James Brown said that they based their boastful self-promotion on George, while a chance meeting with Bob Dylan (which he later wrote about in The Chronicles) gave the young singer “all the recognition and encouragement I would need for years.”

A big congrats to Vince & Co. for finally embracing pro wrestling history pre-Bruno Sammartino (or pre-Hulk Hogan, for that matter.)

Also according to The AV Club, Danny Trejo (soon to be of “Machete” fame, as well as almost 200 other roles) is set to star in “Vengeance,” a movie that takes its cue from the Charles Bronson “Death Wish” series, where Trejo plays a vigilante whose wife and kids were killed and who goes on a murderous rampage. And Diamond Dallas Page is in it!

DT: Remember I told you that I love Charles Bronson? Charles Bronson was doing movies called Death Wish, where they kill his family and he becomes a vigilante. That is basically the storyline: They kill my wife and daughter, and I take revenge, vengeance, on criminals. I kill people that are jaywalking.

AVC: Really? Is it a comedy?

DT: No, no, no. It’s a really serious vigilante flick.

AVC: And 50 Cent and Jason Mewes are in it?

DT: 50 Cent, Jason Mewes, Diamond Dallas Page, Donal Logue, Baby Bash, Tech Nine, Houston Alexander, and Rashad Evans. We’ve got some monsters in it.

So yeah, good for Diamond Dallas Page, who worked with Trejo on the Rob Zombie film “The Devil’s Rejects.” The Trejo interview is really good, and it makes me wonder if meeting DDP would turn the new old softy from a life of boxing to a routine of Yoga for Regular Guys. -Eric
