Peenclit 2: Electric Boogaloo

Just, oh shit:

The former WWE star, Chyna, is relaunching her porn career with a brand-spankin� new debut. When she approached Vivid demanding a role with the best male stuntcock, Vivid did her one better and gave her the two top male performers in the business. How do you make Chyna better? Team her up with Dylan Ryder and Diana Prince. Tentatively called �Backdoor to Chyna,� this premier represents a whole new side of Chyna as she pushes her boundaries with a scorching anal scene� Enter through the back.

I’m going to go take 832 showers now. – Dusty

Early buyrate numbers for Money In The Bank PPV

Bill O'Reilly says Money in the Bank did a terrible buyrate. *insert anti semitic remark here*

Meltzer had stuff to say. Read it and weep:

Preliminary indications have Money in the Bank doing in the range of double what Capitol Punishment did in the United States although it won’t be until the end of August when WWE releases a number.

If that’s true, we’re looking at about 400,000 buys for this show. This would be a huge success for WWE. I can’t emphasize enough that this number is not just a result of the recent CM Punk angle, although that is a big reason. Ratings take a while to catch up on what is going on. This number would be the result of a whole year of good stuff happening, which supports my theory that this is the best year for wrestling since 1992. I hate being right so much. It hurts my face. – Dusty

Michael Tarver is mentally handicapped

Pictured above is a documentary detailing the 2011 NFL offseason.

Forget about the fast and furious NFL offseason action. We’ve got this:

Michael Tarver on twitter claimed that John Cena purposely fractured his arm with a chair shot and laughed at him about it. He claimed Cena felt threatened by Tarver’s promos and then got Tarver released.

Pretty sure that one isn’t true. Call me crazy. – Dusty

Stunt Granny Interview: Kyle Klingman

Bill Simmons of Grantland.com interviews CM Punk

"Well, hi."

I’ve been waiting for this one for about a week: Bill Simmons, famous from ESPN.com’s Page Two and creator of Grantland.com, interviewed CM Punk and posted the audio from it today. (Click here to listen.) Punk discusses his new theme song, Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality,” how much of his infamous Monday Night Raw promo from last month was planned, how close he really was to leaving WWE to go home and sit on his couch, who influenced his career both as a wrestler and as a child, and what went into his invasion of the San Diego Comic-Con. He also puts over various members of the roster, so listen up for those. Simmons has a very laid-back interview style, and Punk seems to be totally on the level here; it’s an interesting listen and worth checking out.

Maryse files for order of protection… wow, what is that bikini bottom, a Band-Aid?

Now seriously, who would stalk *this*?

According to Prowrestling.net, WWE Diva Maryse has filed for an order of protection against a man she’s calling a “crazy stalker.” I’M NOT CRAZY!

Maryse alleges that 61 year-old Lee Silber has sent her threatening letters and left more than 50 voice mails on her cell phone. Silber offered to give Maryse a six-figure payoff and a 100 carat diamond ring to prove he is her friend.

I also don’t look 61, either.

Look, Maryse is hotter than donut grease, but are we ever going to come to a day and age when even the craziest of the crazies don’t think of stalking as the appropriate way to make friends and meet people? I mean, sure, I slept outside Jim Ross’ hotel room door at the Ramada in Waterloo, Iowa, this past weekend, but that was only in case he had an emergency or needed a foot massage, nothing weird. -Eric

Dusty’s Blog: Post Monday Night Raw Autopsy

Guess who's back... back again...

I came up with that title at three o’clock this afternoon. See, cause it’s after the show aired? Eh? Ah, forget it.

Kevin is incapacitated this week, so I’m back here doing what I used to do every week – review Monday Night Raw for no pay whatsoever. Last week’s show lit the internet on fire in a blaze of controversy, so it will be interesting to see how this show fares in its aftermath.

We start with the new Raw belt on display, shades of the WrestleMania 4 tournament. All we needed was Robin Leach to read a pretentious proclamation before the match began. I really hate the way Justin Roberts strains some words out like he’s taking a gigantic dump. I’m sure someone in management told him to do it. Cole and Lawler introduce the show and say it’s right to the action as we’re going to start things off with Rey Mysterio vs. The Miz for the Raw Title. They show the entire lockerroom watching backstage. I’m loving this; it’s being treated like a big deal, and they’re guaranteeing a champion by putting the match on first and letting it go as long as it needs to. Cole puts over the tournament and the guys’ backgrounds like he’s good ol’ JR or something. (That’s post-show-watching foreshadowing, folks.) “If Rey Mysterio walked on water, you’d say, ‘Oh look, Mysterio can’t swim!'” – Jerry Lawler to Michael Cole.

We come back from break with Lawler taking a shot at the Obama-Boehner political debate that was going on tonight. They trade nearfalls and Miz becomes frustrated, which culminates in an almost Christian-like temper tantrum after a close two count. Miz blocks a 619 and hits a sitout powerbomb for a two count. “Miz looks like a Greek statue with that flower on his dick.” – Becky, in regards to Miz’s terrible trunks. Mysterio finally hits the 619 and top rope splash to win the match and the title. This was a great TV show match.

Miz attacks during the post-match celebration and lays out Mysterio. Alberto Del Rio’s music hits and he comes out with the briefcase, indicating he’s going to claim his title match right now while Mysterio is down and out. However, he takes too long to get to the ring, and Mysterio catches him with a dive to the outside. Del Rio retreats while vowing Mysterio hasn’t seen the last of him.

They come back from break showing Mysterio receiving a standing ovation from the boys in the back, who then shower him with champagne. Cena gets up in his face, but then shakes his hand and pats him on the back. Josh Mathews interviews Mysterio, who talks about his family and how much this win means to him. They then show clips of last week’s show ending angle with Triple H and Vince McMahon and advertise that Hunter will be doing a State of the WWE Address later on in the show.

We come back from break with clips of Dolph Ziggler beating Kofi Kingston at the Capital Punishment PPV to win the United States Title. This sets up Ziggler (with Vickie Guerrero in his corner) taking on Evan Bourne. I love Zigglers’ “I Am Perfection” shirt. The font is very reminiscent of what they used for the WrestleMania 2 graphics. I’m all full of old WrestleMania references in this review, as you will see. Vickie is a heat machine at ringside. Evan’s selling is top notch. He is absolutely this generation’s Ricky Morton, and I hope WWE understands what a gift they have with him. Bourne hits a frankensteiner off the top for a two count. He misses a 450 splash and Ziggler takes control, locking in a sleeper hold for the victory. “Follow that!” Ziggler challenges. Great charisma. They then show a clip of Kofi beating Del Rio last week to set up this week’s rematch.

Every USA Network show is exactly the same. Have you noticed this? I can’t wait to see Vincent D’Onofrio star in this week’s Burn Notice. Or… wait… uh…

We’re back with a wacky backstage segment featuring some schmuck carrying around a pack of Keystone Light like he’s Buck Zumhofe with the stereo. Oh, it’s Keith Stone. Whatever. In any event, Eve complains to him that the Bella Twins always take advantage of the fact that they are identical to do sneaky switches behind the ref’s back and basically cheat for a living. Stone solves this problem by using magic markers to draw an arm sleeve tattoo on Nikki in a quick cutaway scene. There was no follow up to this whatsoever, so I have no idea what the point of it was, other than to try to get Dusty Giebink to commit suicide.

Maryse and Melina are already in the ring, so you just know this match is going to end up going well for them. They’re taking on Kelly Kelly and Eve tonight. Maryse carries herself like she’s hotness. Lawler again takes a shot at the political speech. They should be careful that these knocks aren’t advertising the thing, you know? Eve is basically dressed like a Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader tonight. She also has huge knockers, so there’s that. Maryse actually hits a stinkface at some point in the match. Melina tags in and stinks up one side and down the other. Man, is she terrible. The match devolves into a four way brawl. Kelly hits the fameasser for the win. Everything not involving Melina was decent for women’s fare. They show R-Truth talking *at* (not to) Triple H backstage to hype up the State of the WWE Address.

During the break, Becky points out the genius of Hunter marrying Stephanie. Apparently she doesn’t believe in True Love.

Hunter comes out for his State of the Union address as Cole points out last week it was announced he’s taking over for Vince as the head of day to day operations of the company. Beck points out it’s like when Michael took over for Don Corleone in the Godfather. Hunter is even dressed like a mob boss here. Hunter gives dap to Vince to start things off. He says he’s here to talk about the future of the company, and congratulates Mysterio on his title win. He says Rey has agreed to defend the belt in a second title match here tonight against John Cena, since Cena was cheated out of the rematch he deserved by Vince.

Hunter then switches gears and says he’s re-hired someone the fans have been clamoring for for some time now. Everybody thinks it’s CM Punk, but it ends up being Jim Ross, I’m sure much to Eric Nelson’s glee. Lawler embraces Ross as Cole looks like Hunter just ran over his new kitty 37 times with a Hummer. Cole throws down his headset and grabs a microphone. He says Hunter said this was supposed to be about the future, but Jim Ross is the walking dead. He says he’s been a company man since WrestleMania, doing everything they asked him to do, but he will not commentate along with Ross. Hunter looks nonplussed in the ring during this rant. Cole gets in Ross’ face, saying he’s spent his entire WWE career kissing Vince McMahon’s ass, so it makes sense that now that Hunter is in charge, Ross would kiss his ass. “The only thing bigger than your ego is your gut!” Hunter politely asks if Cole is finished, and then says his first inclination was to outright fire Cole and replace him with Ross. He said that was a logistical impossibility, however, due to the terms in Cole’s contract. Therefore, he is giving Cole the rest of the show off, and he has until Friday Night Smackdown to make up his mind on what his future holds. If he no shows the Smackdown taping, it will be considered a breach of contract and Cole will be future endeavored. If he shows up, everything will be as normal, just with Ross calling Raw from now on. Cole changes his tune immediately, saying he wants to keep his job and sits back down at the announce booth. Hunter says Cole must have misunderstood him, because he said he’s given Cole the night off from announcing. However, he better get to the back and get changed, because he’s got a match coming up next. He says if Cole refuses to do the match, it will again be considered a breach of contract and he will be fired. He said he left Cole some wrestling gear in the back, so he has no excuses.

As Cole is storming out of the scene angrily, R-Truth appears to confront Hunter. He says it’s out with the old and in with the new and he digs that. He starts talking to himself. This is a great gimmick. He tells Hunter that Little Jimmy cost him his match at Capital Punishment, and spiders and heights cost him his match at the Money in the Bank PPV. He asks Hunter what he’s going to do to end the vast conspiracy that exists against him. Hunter starts talking to himself as a way of mocking Truth. This is the type of stuff Hunter is still funny at. “Man, you crazy!” “I know, it’s like I’m insane!” “You might be a game, but I ain’t playing!” As Truth is walking off, Hunter stops him and announces that he has re-signed another guy, and this guy wants a piece of Truth. Cue John Morrison. Morrison and Truth brawl all over ringside and Morrison hits the Starship Pain to end the segment. Good stuff, because it wasn’t just 20 minutes of Hunter talking about himself. They accomplished a bunch of stuff in this segment and none of it was “get over Hunter,” really.

Back from break with Cole coming out dressed like Triple H and spitting the water for cheap comedy. I guess they can’t get that completely out of their systems yet. “I forgot about those ugly tattoos,” Jim Ross truths. Zack Ryder is announced as his opponent. Fans are actually chanting Ryder’s name. The match is over so quick I still had my head down writing the above couple sentences. I hope this is the start of some type of TV push for Ryder.

They show clips from last week’s Kofi vs. ADR match to set up this week’s rematch. Ricardo Rodriguez is out there to introduce Del Rio. All is right with the world. Kofi hits a sloppy non-fruit rollup (oh yeah). Del Rio retreats as they cut to a quick break.

Back from break and Del Rio has taken control of the match. Kofi hits a high crossbody for a two count. He then hits the boom drop or whatever the piss they’re calling it. He takes too long to hit a kick of some description and Del Rio hits the old Cactus Jack double arm DDT. Kofi counters a roll through with one of his own (shades of Bret vs. Owen from WrestleMania 10 – see, I told you!), but Del Rio grabs the ropes. Del Rio finally locks on the cross armbreaker for the submission victory. Not a bad match.

Back from break, they advertise Rey vs. Cena for the belt, but first Josh Mathews interviews the Miz backstage. Miz says he can’t believe Cena has a title match after almost being fired last week. He said Vince had the right idea, but Hunter came in and ruined things. He says Cena caused this whole mess to begin with by losing the title to He Who Shall Not Be Mentioned. He says it’s a shame that the face of the company now is a man who does not even show his face, but rather hides it behind a mask. He gets in a cheap plug for his appearance on the George Lopez Show, coming up Wednesday. So did I, just there. He says Hunter’s reign thus far has been a huge mistake.

All my neighbors mowed their lawns today. I mean, I’m unemployed, so days of the week mean absolutely nothing to me, but I still mow my lawn on the weekend, just because it seems like a very weekendy thing to do. You know, you just have more time on the weekend to do things like that. I wonder why everyone in this neighborhood chose Monday afternoon as designated lawn mowing time. Seems bizarre to me.

We come back from break and learn that ugly chicks dig Cena. He really is the new Shawn Michaels. Cena and Mysterio fist bump before the match as Ross points out they are not allowed to refer to CM Punk by name on the air. (He did it without saying his name, of course. Although, it would have been funny if he was like, “I’m not allowed to say CM Punk. Oh shit!”) Back and forth action to start. Lawler points out that Cena might have the advantage here since Mysterio has had to wrestle once already tonight. Nice touch. Mysterio gets a DDT in for a two count. Cena locks in an STF but Rey gets to the ropes. Cena counters a 619 with a powerslam for two. Cena hits the five knuckle shuffle and goes for the F-U but Rey counters it.

Bunch of counters time! Rey locks in the STF. Cena powers out of it with one leg, which looks awesome. Rey hits the 619 but takes too long to attempt the top rope splash and Cena gets his knees up. Rey tries for the frankensteiner but Cena counters it with a powerbomb. Cena gets a near fall with a top rope fameasser that I think fooled the crowd. Rey counters the F-U, Cena counters the 619, and hits the F-U to win the title. Rey looked good in losing there. Cena and Rey embrace and then Cena celebrates with the title. Wait a minute, though. What’s that music?

Cue CM Punk coming to the ring! Punk gets into the ring for a face-off with Cena. The crowd gave Punk a huge reaction when he came out. Sort of like, “YAY! I’m so glad he’s back… wait a minute, I’m supposed to hate him! BOO!” Cena holds up his belt to a big reaction. Punk holds up his belt to an even bigger reaction. This is where the show ends. We’re left to ponder whether Punk is the third guy Hunter re-signed since taking control of the company, or if he just showed up on his own accord. And if he is back in the fold, will this set up a title-for-title match with Cena? If so, when? SummerSlam? This is exactly what a good wrestling television show should do. Another strong thumbs up from me here.

Stunt Granny Audio: Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame weekend review

L to R: Eric, Tough Nut to Crack

Eric and Dan traveled to Waterloo, Iowa, this past weekend for the festivities at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum as part of the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame inductions. Spend two days (well, 60 minutes) with the guys as they discuss everything from chance encounters upon their arrival to the Impact Pro Wrestling training session and independent card featuring Austin Aries, Colt Cabana and Hacksaw Jim Duggan (who did well, who did better than well, and who did fantastic jobs). They even sneak in some anecdotes from that night at the hotel bar with the legends and the guys from IPW. Saturday’s recap includes the roundtable panel discussion with legends including Terry Funk, Baron Von Raschke and Gerald Brisco (worth the price of the DVD, set to be released before next year’s induction), an autograph session (Mad Dog Vachon told Eric a joke worth the price of five DVDs) and the induction ceremony, including Jim Ross’ epic speech (worth the price of 10 DVDs, seriously). An amazing experience, so listen in!

Stunt Granny Audio Waterloo Hall of Fame

Full results from 7/22 Impact Pro Wrestling show in Waterloo, Iowa

My homeboy-turned-traitor Matty Star about to lock up with Hacksaw Jim Duggan, tough guy!

Dan and I will have a thorough audio recap of this weekend’s George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame events at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, but to make sure we get a written version of this down, here are the results and some point-of-view analysis of Friday night’s Impact Pro Wrestling show at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo.

(EDIT: I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the great job of long-time Iowa-area referee Bill Jensen, aka Referee Billy J. Always timely, always keeping the action moving, never in the way. Good stuff out of you.)

(1) James Jeffries won a No. 1 contender battle royal. The card kicked off with former Ring of Honor world champion Austin Aries making an unadvertised appearance in support of recently-turned-heel IPW champion Nicky Free. Those two wrestled at last year’s hall of fame weekend show, and Aries called it the greatest match in Iowa wrestling history. (It was good, I must say.) Aries then placed himself in the battle royal and said if he won, he and Free would simply take the night off and Waterloo wouldn’t get a title match. Aries then called one of the less-polished wrestlers into the ring and easily tossed him over the rope. As Aries gloated, the 6’6″, 280-pound Harley Jackson snuck up behind him, scaring him Aries through the ropes to ringside. The rest of the battle royal was what it was, and it came down to the 5’7″, 150-pound Jeffries (who was great last year as a slimy heel but has turned face since then) against a Confederate flag-wearing tag team (Mason Buck & Cousin Buddy, I believe); of course, the smaller Jeffries overcame the odds. Aries snuck back in the ring with a cartoonish “SHUSH!” of the crowd but was, again of course, eliminated. Time: 20:00. The crowd loved the finish, and Aries is as excellent at playing a “faces and heels” crowd like Waterloo as he is a “this is awesome” ROH crowd. Good way to set the table for the rest of the show.

(2) Colt Cabana def. “Torturous” Tony Sly. The thing with a crowd like the one in Waterloo, with a handful of children in the audience and with people who likely aren’t following anything outside WWE, is that they prefer to “boo the bad guy” more than to “cheer the good guy,” so Colt didn’t get much of a reaction. He did a good job working with Sly, who improves every year. Good match, just wish the crowd was more excitable. Time: 10:00.

(3) Marshall Scott def. Sparrow. Good match, nice moves from both guys. Sparrow plays a good babyface, and Scott continues to improve as a cocky heel. Sparrow’s valet, whose name I didn’t catch, also continues to improve from last year, but as a critique from someone who has no place giving one, more well-timed opportunities to rile up the crowd for her babyface wrestler would have helped the match even more. Time: 10:00.

Before intermission, Team Canada, made up of Matty Star (who may or may not have lived in my hometown for three years), Ryan Slade (who may or may not work at the gym where I work out) and AJ Smooth (who may or may not have been one of Cody Rhodes’ bag boys on Smackdown from Des Moines a few weeks back) angered the crowd with their maple-leafed tactics, roughing up the ring announcer when he wouldn’t sing the Canadian national anthem. Their opponents for the main event – Justin Decent, Ugly and Hacksaw Jim Duggan – hit the ring and cleared house, with Duggan telling the Canadians they wouldn’t be so tough when it’s 3-on-3. Man, Hacksaw can get an audience on its feet just by stomping to ringside. His charisma is phenomenal. And the guys from Team Canada make excellent, confident heels, and they got an awesome reaction from the Waterloo crowd.

(4) Montoya X def. The Big Picture. I wish I would have seen more of this match, but Dan and I chose to meet the wrestling legends at their respective tables before they left for the night. Montoya X is great, though, and I did see his top rope splash for the finish, which is a sight to behold. Imagine if Samoa Joe could do that and you have the idea.

(5) Nicky Free def. James Jeffries. Another good match, with Free playing a good cocky heel (he’d been a white-meat babyface for so long that this was a good change of pace for him) and Jeffries again as a good underdog. Rumors circulate that Free, who sat next to R-Truth at one of those ridiculous “press conferences” to promote WWE Capitol Punishment, is getting a look from WWE these days. No reason why not; he’s got good size, can work heel or face, and seems to be “moldable” in that WWE developmental sort of way. Time: 15:00.

(6) Hacksaw Jim Duggan & Justin Decent & Ugly def. Matty Star & Ryan Slade & AJ Smooth. Once again, Hacksaw lights up the crowd with a wink, a smile, a thumbs-up and a “HOOOOOO!” The Canada-vs-U.S. gimmick worked well, too. Team Canada used the usual slippery heel gimmicks – hugging each other for support, triple-teaming the babyface – to a great reaction. Decent and Ugly are hilarious characters on this roster and fit perfectly on a six-man team with Duggan, who won the match with his three-point stance clothesline. Time: 10:00.

Overall: This was a fun independent wrestling show. Not a knock on any of the wrestlers, but it’s not like there were any five-star matches on the card. But there wasn’t one bad match – in fact, all were good – and that’s saying something for independent wrestling. Of the 30 or so indy shows I’ve seen in the last 14 years, this will be the most memorable. Big ups to Troy Peterson for his promotion and booking (and for starting the show on time, which also needs to happen more often in indy wrestling), and big ups to Travis Shillington for helping these wrestlers continue on their paths.
