Stunt Granny Audio Show #182

It took a day to recover but Jeremy and Kevin are back from UFC 145. What did they enjoy about the event? What can be done to make the live experience better?  Who has the better fans? The most important part though is what can WWE and UFC learn from one another? Thy also discuss some sports entertainment as they turn their attention to Monday Night Raw. What worked? What was the actual length of the Brock Lesnar contract signing? Did it clock in less than 45 minutes or was it actually that long? How much fun was the CM Punk boozehound angle? Who saw that coming huh? What does the future hold for Paul Bearer and is Beth Phoenix just that god of an actress? All this and more awaits and all you have to do is download it. Unless you have subscribed to us on iTunes you would have it already.

Buff Bagwell reportedly in car accident, Handsome Stranger unharmed

Longtime Stunt Granny readers know that sometimes we post items just to get page views, and this story is no different. For some reason, one of our top searches is “car accident,” and I can’t think of a relevant car accident since Nick Bollea and John Leguizamo or whatever his name was, so I’ll give you something to cry about: According to Prowrestling.net, Buff Bagwell was hospitalized after a car accident and is currently in intensive care. This, according to the UCW promotion’s Twitter account. Hey, if anyone is going to know what Marcus Alexander Bagwell from Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Ga., is up to, it’s a promotion out of Atlanta. However, this is the same Buff Bagwell who callously faked a neck injury in, well, one of the funniest angles in WCW history, so who’s to say?

Anyway, here’s hoping Bert Prentice’s lap wasn’t as badly injured in the accident. M I RITE? Is this thing on? -Eric

Great Khali sings “Happy Birthday” (kinda) to John Cena, Michael Cole slips in timely Lilian Garcia joke

Thanks to Prowrestling.net for unearthing this gem. Essentially, the clip speaks for itself at about the 26-second mark, but the majority of the WWE roster wished John Cena a happy birthday last night after WWE Monday Night Raw went off the air, with the highlight being Great Khali singing “Hahpee Bahday” to the former champ. No, the highlight was not Triple H unhilariously forcing him to do it, and no, the highlight was not a fat midget dressed up like a fat regular person. And no, the highlight wasn’t even developmental call-ups like Damien Sandow, Antonio Cesaro (with unlimited soup) and soon-to-be two-time flop Abraham Washington standing there with their tongues up Cena’s ass. Just a simple song from the enlarged heart of a 7-foot contorted man-monster. It’s like “Harry and the Hendersons” but bad. -Eric

AJ Styles to present Dove Award (??), to be broadcast on channel lower on dial than Spike

Have you ever wondered why TNA stars are never on David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien or even Craig Ferguson? It is because they are too busy with gigs that are reaching a much larger and important audience.

The Dove Awards are the only gospel awards show where white people are awarded trophies and black people hand then the awards. They are like a civil rights time machine so to speak. Oh wait a minute, there is a Rap/Hip Hop award presented, so that makes up for everything else.

So you may wonder what the point of this is; well, making fun of this backwards shit is always fun. Also, AJ Styles will be a presenter during the telecast tonight on the gmc. Upon further investigation gmc, yes lower case to seem really hip, is, well, let them tell you:

America’s favorite channel for uplifting music and entertainment, featuring music and inspiring stories the whole family will enjoy. gmc is the only TV network with every program certified as family safe by the Parents Television Council. gmc is found on DIRECTV channel 338 and DISH Network channel 188 nationally, and many local cable systems.

So there you go. Now, don’t forget to tune in tonight to see AJ Styles present an award to someone you have never heard of outside of the Now That’s What I Call Faith infomercials.  -Jeremy

Wait, is Beth Phoenix really hurt?

For anyone that missed Monday Night Raw last night Beth Phoenix lost the Divas Title to one of the Bellas. It doesn’t matter which one since they are gone at the end of the month anyway. What is important was the angle that took place during the match. Supposedly/Apparently Beth Phoenix rolled her ankle and thus lost the title.

At first this looked to be just an angle but now WWE.com has stated it is a legit sprained ankle. But then there is a report at the Wrestling Observer via Gerweck.net that the plan was for her to drop the title anyway so that Kharma could take the title without beating Beth.  Beth herself has posted on Twitter about people helping her through the airport this morning.

Thank you to everyone that helped me thru the airport this morning. Will keep every posted on MRI and xray results. Believe me…nothing …hurts worse than my heart right now after the loss and even worse thought of missing competition. But i have been bere before, and if…there is one thing Beth Phoenix knows how to do, it’s rise from the ashes. The title will be mine again. #unbreakable

So what is the truth? Did she happen to hurt her ankle in a stroke of good luck, if you can call it that? Was that incorporated in to the match or was it part of the plan? It sure looked harmless but then the dumbest injuries usually come from something silly. In this case that something silly is the task of jumping off the apron, three feet, to the padded floor.

So, here’s wishing Beth the best of luck in her injury or fake injury. On a selfish  note if you need any help with rehab hit me up. @grannymaes on Twitter. -Jeremy
