Stunt Granny Audio #235

67895307-590x456

Freed from the shackles of audio ban, Dusty is back once again to join Kevin for another rousing edition of Stunt Granny Audio. The fearless duo talk about whether TNA is really up for sale or not, and if so, who might be among the potential buyers. And does it even really matter since TNA doesn’t exactly have a sterling reputation for knowing what to do with their product anyway. And might this be just another business acquisition for Vince McMahon to add to his tape library?

They then switch gears to talk about the goings on in the last episode of Monday Night Raw. Dusty talks about how he thinks Jay Briscoe is the best thing about professional wrestling right now. Kevin expresses his sadness for the state of his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers right now. Dusty grills Kevin about the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal. And a whole lot more fun and nonsense, including Dusty challenging the listeners to come up with an example of a good song about dinosaurs, and it will only cost you an hour of your life and your cold black soul, so why not listen!

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
