Brock Lesnar vs. prairie dogs

Yeah this is UFC news but just go with it alright. Anyway, Brock Lesnar has resurfaced after his surgery in a commercial plugging Fusion Ammunition. Yep, what’s the best thing to do after a recovering from major surgery? You go kill prairie dogs with heavy weaponry.

Now look, hunting is pretty unfair as it is and idiotic when there are perfectly good means of farming livestock and torturing them for a short while before skinning them alive. So yes him shooting a prairie dog with a rifle, a gun that looks like an M-16 but probably isn’t and then randomly firing a 50-cal is tremendous. What makes this video newsworthy is the fact you can flip a prairie dog with a bullet to the head. Also, how dumb are prairie dogs? They clearly hear a gun shot so what is the first thing they do? Stick their miniscule head out of the hole that’s what. It’s like they are in a horror movie and just have to investigate. Fucking idiots.

As I told Kevin earlier; hunting is childish if you do it for sport but in this case an exception can be made if Brock was hunting with firecrackers and a goldfish net. -Jeremy

Stunt Granny Audio Show #151 part 2

No recording problems this time aside from the fact that we couldn’t quite capture the magic from that portion of the show we skipped out on last night. No need to fear though as the dastardly duo of Jeremy and Kevin make up for it by remembering to talk about Miz selling Subway better than Jared ever could and Zack Ryder and his character’s translation to TV. They talked about the main event picture on Raw and how there seem to be more options than in a long time even with Rey Mysterio’s knee injury that will shelf him for a while. They explain how potty talk can be used for emphasis by none of than pure bred baby face John Cena. Enjoy part two more than part one by clicking on the link below.

So Jimmy Yang still hasn’t gotten paid

It was all downhill from here, folks.

Speaking of TNA being soaked in trailer park, they apparently have yet to pay Jimmy Yang. Here’s what I’ve been able to gather from various internet reports about this. Yang did a one-shot appearance in TNA on the June 27 Impact Wrestling taping, reviving his old Flying Elvis character. The Flying Elvises were the first thing that ever appeared in TNA, way back during the weekly pay-per-view era. I used to get all those shows, because I had a friend who was willing to go half-and-half with me, and I was so desperate at the time for an alternative to WWE. Naive young Dusty.

In any event, it’s been since then and Yang has yet to get a paycheck from TNA that doesn’t bounce like a Milwaukee Bucks basketball. So naturally, this led to an upset Yang taking the whole thing public. For some reason, that action caused TNA management to call him up and tell him he was acting unprofessionally. An enraged Yang fired back that not paying someone for their work is what is *really* unprofessional.

Look, I know I’m Anti-TNA Guy around here. My colleagues usually choose to handle TNA with more diplomacy, for reasons that are lost on me. But I don’t think there’s any way to sugar coat this. This is TNA failing on an epic, public scale. Stuff like this is only going to serve to encourage released WWE performers to ply their trade in Japan or elsewhere overseas. TNA is the Little Engine That Absolutely Can’t But Insists On Continuing Anyway. – Dusty

Looks like Billy Corgan is breaking into the wrestling business

I hate the Smashing Pumpkins. I think they are/were a terrible band. The only song of theirs I draw even a modicum of enjoyment out of is “Today,” and even that I think is a spotty, inconsistent affair. I say all this because Billy Corgan is the news here, and I’ve never had the opportunity on any sort of public forum to express this belief before. I may never again. Stunt Granny is all about seizing opportunities.

In any event, it would appear that Wrong Way Corgan is attempting to get himself into the wrestling business. You can find out more about his would-be promotion at http://www.resistancepro.com/. It looks like he’s got Raven on board as an agent, and such luminaries as Harry Smith and Teddy Hart on the talent roster. You’d think with the Resistance name that he would peg Sylvan Grenier and Rene Dupree for slots in his promotion, but that has yet to materialize.

Corgan had some smart things to say about all this in his interview, but he is facing a tremendous uphill battle to achieve any sort of success with this venture. I can’t help but think a better battleplan for someone like Corgan who presumably has a bunch of money and is known to love wrestling is to infiltrate TNA and try to make that better. On the other hand, if you stick a finger in that pool, it is bound to come out soaked in trailer park.

In related news, there was some discussion on the Chicago Pro Wrestling message board this past week. Corgan said this:

Getting fans won’t be a problem…and the first 3 talent signings will be announced on Saturday. This promotion is a “Best of the Best”, only the TOP talent around the world will take part
 
Chicago mainstay Billy Whack said:
 
I can’t wait for your announcement. There isnt anything that can possibly excite me as a wrestling fan anymore, so I sincerely hope you can. Actually, I’m BEGGING you, please don’t be a re-hash of the things we’ve seen out here. Please don’t end up booking all the guys that are recently from a big company, (or a big company 12 years ago) and cram it in my face all “ECW-Style”.

Try not to follow all the indy wrestling formulas that are laid out in front of you. Christ’s sake, you’re going to have a budget, just do it right, huh?

Please don’t do “Commissioner” angles and sh*t like that.

Oh man, I’m salivating for this announcement.

I’ve seen a lot of meteors crash through this area, and this seems to be an out-of-control, sizable hunk right now. But then again, what do I know at this point? Guess we all must wait for Wizard World.

Gosh, Billy… You and I, so much in common. Maybe we’ll end up comparing what brand of razor we use on our heads.

Please don’t put someone through a table at the convention.

Corgan responded:
 
Mr. Whack,

This will NOT be a rehash of “typical” Indy shows. What we are about to do is going to set the world of wrestling on fire and re-ignite the torch of the SPORT of professional wrestling.

We know there will be fans waiting for us to drop the ball, but I can assure you this is NOT AN OPTION.

And then, to another poster:
 
BWO are our guests for the weekend, but they are not on the roster.

Sox, why are you so negative? Everything you post is borderline PMS?

Relax, take a deep breath, take a mydol and eat some chocolate ( it works for my wife)

 
Borderline PMS? Does that mean he’s going to sign Terri Runnels?!?! – Dusty
