WrestleMania 28 Preview #4- Big Show vs Cody Rhodes

Damn smooth

Cody Rhodes and Big Show; it is written so shall it happen. Has WWE done a reasonable amount of work to make this feud viable? Does Cody Rhodes have any momentum behind him even though he has been Intercontinental champion for eight months? Just how bad is Big Shows record at WrestleMania? Which one of our hosts is genuinely surprised by this? Does beating the Great Khali even matter now? How does selective historical enforcement play in to this match as it has in the other matches so far? Click the blue link that says “WrestleMania 28 Preview #4- Big Show vs Cody Rhodes” below.

Second Annual Akeem Memorial Hall of Fame: Matches

Every year, starting in 2010, we here at Stunt Granny will go through a rigorous, dangerous, possibly illegal set of votes to induct people into our own Akeem Memorial Hall of Fame.

Headlines: Great quote from Cornette on Hardys, great article on Flair as a huge sadsack

Ric Flair at an autograph signing, taunted by cans of Coke he can't afford.

According to Prowrestling.net, Ring of Honor executive producer Jim Cornette was interviewed by Monday Night Mayhem and was asked if Matt and Jeff Hardy would be welcome there. The answer I got was no, with a little more flourish:

I haven’t talked to these guys, and I don’t know what their side of the story is, but there always seems to be controversy swirling around The Hardys right now. I believe Ring of Honor would once again take the standpoint that we are going to try and find the young undeveloped talent and expose them to the world, rather than to look to be the place where people come to have a warm place to curl up when they leave the big leagues.

Yep, nope.

Speaking of white trash, according to Prowrestling.net (and my friend Niemann, who forwarded this link onto me first), Ric Flair was profiled at Grantland.com in an unflattering but completely honest way: The article dives into court papers and records – “thousands of pages,” according to the article – to piece together the many financial, work-related and marital problems the “Nature Boy” has dealt with in the past two-plus decades. It’s an incredible read and absolutely worth your time, but let me pull out a couple of non-Flair snippets to show you the great detail into which this article goes.

At other points during the [2002] flight [from hell], [Scott] Hall licked [flight attendant Heidi] Doyle’s face, told her he wanted to “lick her pussy,” and asked [flight attendant Taralyn] Cappellano to “suck his dick.”

Poor flight attendants. Why can’t people just be up front and say what they want? “TWO peanuts, please! It’s a long flight!”

[Virgil] Runnels [III, aka Dustin Rhodes] advised Cappellano that, “You and me are gonna fuck.”

Seriously, just say what you want! These women have long days ahead of them! I promise I’m going to speak my mind next time I fly; it’ll really help these ladies out. -Eric

Happy Baby New Year!

We here at Stunt Granny believe there is no better way to ring in the New Year than to watch a coked up Dustin Rhodes make an ass out of himself on national television, acting out Vince Russo’s mindless jabberings. And yes, that includes watching the skin peel off the rotting corpse of Dick Clark. – Dusty
