– Taz gave an interview to the Miami Herald an interview since Lockdown, which is a real pay per view that I won’t pay for, is in Miami. Taz said:

The building of characters is a big, big thing creative in TNA is really pushing.

What an obvious statement. It’s their job to build characters hence their name is creative! I will give it to Taz that TNA has come up with some new characters like his examples of Sam Shaw and EC3. Sam Shaw is a truly new character because no one has tried to make Patrick Bates as wrestling character to my knowledge. EC3 is just a recycled gimmick with not an ounce of a new spin on it. Taz also cited MVP and the Wolves as fresh faces. The trio is new to TNA TV but they’re not new characters. Their gimmicks from their previous trips are intact so creative isn’t building jack for them. I shouldn’t say that, creative did drop American from the beginning of their team name. At least Taz didn’t say Willow because that is way too weird for any chumps that TNA employs. Jeff Hardy is the only person creative enough to come up with Willow.

– Because it has been posted everywhere, I feel obligated to mention that Buff Bagwell is now a gigolo. I’m not going to be creative because all of the jokes have already been used by the time of this posting. I’ll just leave the link on here to get a few waning hits. – Kevin

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

Stunt Granny Lunch Conversation: Dusty and Eric, April 20, 2011

One of these things is very fucking plainly not like the other...

Dusty: ‬I’m smoking three packs of cigarettes at a time right now and I have a question to ask you.

Eric: Hahaha! If I can understand it through all the hacking and coughing, then yes.

Dusty: What? Fuck you man, smoking is rad. Anyway, ‬I always run old wrestling angles by Becky to see what she thinks of them from a logical perspective or whatever‬. I was telling her about the whole NWO and I think we talked about this before, but she thought it was stupid for them to think they could take over the entire company, and that they should have just been like, we’re talking all of your guys belts, since we’re better wrestlers than you.

Eric: ‬Hmmm‬…

Dusty: ‬So the NWO should have been five guys, one for each title, and all WWF guys except for one big turn‬.

Eric: ‬Interesting.
