@WWE Blasts The Announcement, TNA Had Twins? & More on @HeelZiggler

Breyers Blasts! Birthday Blast Frozen Dairy Dessert– I had no idea what an email blast was until I watched Brooklyn Nine Nine (If you’re not watching, jump on board. Funny stuff.) I then had to confirm this is an actual term which my buddy Ken was familiar with because of his time in a marketing firm. I thought of that when I read this story on Prowrestling.net (Kind of sad I didn’t get the news from the source of origin at the PWTorch – VIP link warning – since they don’t break news) noting that the WWE blew their own announcement about the fruition of the WWE Network by sending out an email blast confirming it. Hopefully some combination of us will be recording right around their 9:30 PM EST announcement time. It’ll be live so it’ll be Internet Blast worthy.

Hannah & Holly Blossom announced on their Facebook page that they are no longer with TNA or Ohio Championship Wrestling. I had no idea they were even on the roster or British Bootcamp which has produced the terrible Brad Maddox rip off known as Rockstar Spud. They realized after four years of being in OVW and nine years of wrestling that they weren’t getting the call up from TNA even though they easily could have ripped off the twin gimmick to get heat like the Bellas. Of course they didn’t admit to it but we can all read between the lines. Hannah & Holly did say they’ve had a fantastic time with both OVW & TNA so that they can keep the door open if TNA gets Spike TV to start airing Complete Knockouts.

– My boy Dolph Ziggler will be headed to the Pittsburgh to have his cranium looked at by a neuropsychologist, more than likely Dr. Maroon. Reports are surfacing that Ryback is getting heat for what he did from this match and working stiff & recklessly in other matches. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we’ve found the new Bob Holly. I can’t wait for Ryback to be repackaged as Ryan “Radiator” Reeves. He’ll cool you off! – Kevin

12 Rounds of Deep Dish Pizza Starring Not John Cena & Not CM Punk

It’s time to rob this train – Not John Cena

I went back to my parent’s place this weekend in Altoona, PA for my two nephews’ birthday joint party. This time around I remembered to bring Not John Cena and Not CM Punk with me because I knew I’d be able to use my dad’s 1952 (or ’53 he’s not entirely sure) Lionel O gauge train set to take some more pictures. My dad’s train set has gone from Christmas special to filling the majority of a 27’x27′ addition that I helped to design. Having a “movie set” helped this project. Since my parents don’t have anyone around anymore and can only dote on the grand kids when they head to Virginia, they’ve turned the train set into a seasonal set that changes for winter and summer. This set of pictures was done on the summer set. I wish I had this movie idea in place before embarking on this set of pictures but I still liked the product that I came out with. Since the view rate is always lower on our Facebook page, these photo journals will make it on to the site proper every time with additional information.

My dad was running the train at a very high clip which is why the train is so blurred. I figured there was nothing like a train robbery that started with some ludicrous way to get onto to said vehicle. Not John Cena looked better to have a jumping motion so he got set as the villain in this photo journal.

I can’t let you rob this train Not John. These deep dish pizzas need to get to Chicago. – Not CM Punk

As you can see, there is green grass. During the winter set, it is covered in snow that my nieces help to do after Thanksgiving. I also did the remainder of the pictures after my dad had shut the trains down. To the left is the Steelers train which has a car for every Super Bowl victory along with an engine and caboose. He has three trains on the main platform. In the background is the trolley platform that has a European shelf which now contains the summer zoo that we bought for him this past Christmas.

Wrestlemania 29 (NY/NJ) Previews Part I

TheShield

Since Jeremy agreed that he wouldn’t be doing previews as I had predicted on Monday, I’m going written for the previews. I’m hoping to do two matches a day including on Sunday. We’ll see if it happens or if I end up stacking them up because I can’t get to them. I’ll be separating them into pairs with one good match and one bad match.

Bad Match

Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett defending against The Miz: We saw The Miz headline Wrestlemania two short years ago in Atlanta. Now he’s get to start the show off…on Facebook/Youtube/WWE App/Tout/Whatever. Wade Barrett was the next big thing until an elbow injury derailed him. I don’t feel bad for the Miz because his character has been stuck in a rut since we last saw him. He was great as a company pitch man when he went on Opie & Anthony recently but it doesn’t change his stale act. I do feel bad for Barrett though. Just as in sports, a man shouldn’t lose his starting job because of injury. I feel like Barrett did. His character got some polishing up during his re-introduction so he’s gone through more change than the Miz. The Intercontinental Belt is a meaningless object though. Most of the time, when someone drops it, they’re finally ready for bigger and better things. Prediction: The Miz becomes the next Chris Jericho and starts racking IC Title reigns.

Good Match

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins) against The Main Eventers (The Big Show, Randy Orton & Sheamus): I’m stretching to put this one in the good category. I have enjoyed the Shield though even if their terrorist inspired videos are too polished. I do think they’ll need to do something more than search for justice after Wrestlemania. I’ve enjoyed the bickering between Big Show and Sheamus. They should be since they were involved in a bitter nearly year long feud. Did I ever doubt that the Big Show would be on the team? Not even when they introduced Ryback who had already been building to a feud with Mark Henry. The match should be a good one as the three season vets should be able to help out a team that hasn’t seen much in ring work in the WWE. Prediction: The Shield finally goes down so we can move on to their next phase.

CM Punk & John Cena’s Photo Journal From #Nashville Part II

2013-03-09_10-28-20_271

John Cena respects my hustle in the gym even though he doesn’t have my loyalty.

My girlfriend’s mother decided to buy me WWE Rumblers for Christmas. I had been meaning to more with them before now. They were happy about their trip to Nashville. I posted these pictures over on our Facebook page but I’m never sure who sees that so I will re-post them here for your enjoyment. Let’s see what they did Saturday with some extra notes from the trip.

John Cena met me at hotel gym in the morning. It was nice of him to serve as my inspiration to bang out something on a vacation day. All three of us got the gym. We’re definitely getting old when we’re not so hung over we have to skip the gym. After getting cleaned up, we headed out to Belle Meade Plantation. They ushered you thru the gift shop to get your tickets.

2013-03-09_12-16-48_730

John Cena is ready to go to war for the South.

I couldn’t pass up taking this picture. It’s almost a perfect scale for the WWE Rumblers. We wondered around the estate after buying our tickets and saw the family mausoleum, which I forgot to note in my Facebook post. It’s a not so minor note that wold have helped the post.

CM Punk wants to make the Undertaker to rest in sleep.

We weren’t allowed to take pictures inside of the mansion itself so no shenanigans for the guided tour portion of Belle Meade. I would have loved to have taken a picture of the bronzed hooves from one of the horses. Considering that the Bellas showed back up last night, it would have been a premonition of two horse faced Divas coming back. We moved on to some food at Hog Heaven which I highly suggest if you ever head to Nashville. The pulled pork was awesome. The Flying Saucer was the next venue that got hit so we could have some afternoon beers. I won’t review the beers in this post but I will post pictures and captions.

2013-03-09_16-38-31_455

I can’t believe these drunks are taking me to another bar.

I never used any of CM Punk’s tag lines but I did use his straight edge standing to help me out with the next one. I think I put more thought into using John Cena’s triad of ideals than he ever has with this caption.

Stunt Granny Audio #202

This episode of the Stunt Granny Audio is brought to you by Des Moines, Iowa by way of Eric Nelson’s wedding. Jeremy & Kevin tell the tales of their Thursday and Friday night in Des Moines. They actually got in some exercise at Gray’s Lake but spent much more time doing twelve to sixteen ounce curls. The biggest portion of Friday were spent at Fong’s Pizza where they dined on some Chinese inspired pizzas and more fruity drinks than either of hosts can really handle. They visited Pappajohn Sculpture Park where Eric proposed to his lovely wife. After that sobering up period, your intrepid hosts continue their drinking at Hessen Haus‘s Oktoberfest party. Eric ended up meeting them at El Bait Shop for a beer. What was Kevin’s Sippy Time Beer choice out of 105 taps? What happened after that is mostly conjecture. Jeremy & Kevin end up talking some wrestling after starting in the new format. Kevin has to explain Aces & Eights is Now Queens & Twos on his Facebook post. They then try to get to the bottom of what is wrong with the group. Do they know who is involved in the match up for them at Bound For Glory? Jeremy moves the show along to the WWE. Who are the new faces that got air time this week? Are they as dysfunctional as Aces & Eights? Who are the mostly new faces that got buried this week? Jeremy & Kevin wrap it up with the most predictable angle on Raw. Did the quality of the segment make up for it’s predictability? Find out that and more when you click on the link.

Stunt Granny Audio Show #202

Stunt Granny Audio #201

Changes are afoot at Stunt Granny so Dusty & Kevin are here to talk about them. Who suggested this change? Who pushed to make the change immediately? Are the guys going to abandon wrestling? Of course not. Kevin’s girlfriend is ready to though after four months of watching WWE Raw. What did she diagnose that Kevin found so funny? Is it a familiar complaint? Why is the WWE oblivious the myriad of problems when a novice can spot them? Dusty & Kevin move on to talking about some of the positives of Raw. How did they rank the segments with CM Punk, Paul Heyman, Mick Foley and John Cena? Does Dusty still have contempt for Foley? Is the power couple of CM Punk and Paul Heyman working? What could John Cena do to help remedy some of the problems that novices can point out? They move into a lighting round and talk about Jim Cornette as a baby face commissioner. Is his gimmick as bad as a heel GM? Dusty & Kevin finish by talking about Austin Aries going heel to fight Jeff Hardy. Who gets a guest shout out for posting about this topic on the Stunt Granny Facebook page? Find that out and more when you click the link below!

Get Krimson on TNA television

We don’t normally cheerlead around here but in this case I am making an exception. Dixie Carter, the owner of TNA, is taking requests on her Facebook page for new indy talent to appear on Impact as part of the Gut Check garbage they are trying on Impact.  My comment got lost and will clearly go unnoticed but the thinking here is that enough people mention the same person over and over that maybe it will lead somewhere.

In this case I am requesting we stuff the ballot box, if there is one, in favor of PWO’s main star Krimson. If you aren’t familiar with his work go check it out because he is great. He has successfully aped Heath Ledger’s Joker and made it his own. Yeah the comparison is definitely easy to make but he pulls it off so effectively he deserves the chance.

Oh, and there is also the simple fact that Dixie Carter and her henchmen ripped off Krimson’s gimmick and name. If you aren’t familiar with it check this out. Yeah it is for another site but who cares. TNA made it that much harder for an Indy talent to make money due to their own lack of ideas.

So please go over to Dixie’s Facebook page and request Krimson. He deserves at least a small shot from TNA after all of the garbage they pulled on him. -Jeremy

So Brian Knobbs got knocked the bleep out last night

Here is the report:

The official Facebook page of former ECW superstar Jerome “New Jack” Young notes that at an independent wrestling event last night in Clearwater, Florida, he was involved in an altercation with Brian Knobbs, which resulted in Knobbs being knocked out in front of a locker room full of wrestlers. New Jack noted that Knobbs stopped by with his wife and 2 other people and for some unknown reason, Knobbs felt like he needed to mess around with New Jack on and off for a while and that Knobbs, who was drinking, came in, gave a speech and told New Jack that he couldn’t wrestle, which New Jack stated is the last thing that Knobbs probably remembers before being knocked out.
 
Those who I’ve spoken to about the altercation are wondering why Knobbs even made the comments in the first place knowing quite well that it would not only rile up New Jack, but also a few members of the locker room also. One promoter who contacted me about this and will remain anonymous stated that there are good people in wrestling and bad people in wrestling and then there’s Brian Knobbs and that he’s delighted that Knobbs finally got what he deserved and hopes that the boys in the back on the night praised New Jack as he finally reacted to what Knobbs’ has been getting away with for years.
 
More details:
 
After a show last night in Largo, FL at Gasoline Alley, Brian Knobs came into the dressing room and was giving a lot of the wrestlers an earful about how they didn’t know how to work and didn’t get it. Knobs then specifically told that to New Jack, saying that New Jack didn’t know how to wrestle. New Jack then punched Knobs in the face, knocking him into the wall. Knobs then came back and pulled New Jack to the ground, but New Jack got up from the ground a lot faster than Knobs, and when Knobs was down, he kicked him in the face, knocking him out in front of everyone. I’m sure more versions will surface from other eye witnesses in the next few days.
 
What I want to know is, with how long he’s been in the wrestling business, how come there was never a universally established way of spelling his name? Is it Knobbs or Knobs, for fuck’s sake?! Also, if Jack is in Florida, Mike Ryan needs to get him on the Lebatard Show pronto! In studio. Only Roy is safe. – Dusty

Daniel Bryan Is Out To BURY People

Daniel Bryan knows how to do four things well, and four things only. Eat, sleep, breathe and BURY people. – Dusty

Stunt Granny Big 11 Week Ending 7/2/11

1. CM Punk

2. Vince McMahon – McMahon was recently interviewed by Bloomberg Enterprise, and while he does seem to be mellowing at his old age (or maybe because the interviewer was a cuter girl than Bob Costas), he did admit that he’d be happy never retiring and “dying in the chair.” And while he did show a good sense of humor while saying that, I can’t imagine JBL will be back to clean up the carcass, so he might want to consider the beach. – Eric

3. Sean Waltman – The Real X-Pac has been all over social media lately, particularly really cranking up his video efforts via his Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/therealxpac. If you’re like me and grew up on the Lightning/1-2-3 Kid, give his shows a shot. His voice is ruined by years of puking all over himself, but his advice is sage, and his opinions are as educated as his feet. – Eric

4. Randy Orton – So Randall does a live radio interview and outs Kelly Kelly as being a dart board behind the scenes. This is nothing to be ashamed of but when it gets played by Randy and the hosts like she is a whore instead of a girl who likes to cum, that is the problem. Kelly, get you some dick and carry on. – Jeremy

5. Dolph Ziggler – He has been getting praised by former wrestlers as the next possible guy to go up the ladder. It was also made public knowledge he got inside Kelly Kelly’s vagina and may have dated a porn star. How can you not like this guy? – Jeremy

6. Linda Hogan – This thing is the exact opposite of Kelly Kelly. This troll went on The Today Show as well as Opie and Anthony (XM 105/ Sirius 206) and spouted a bunch of shit about Hulk Hogan. He has a small penis, he ripped out clumps of her hair, he was abusive and a bunch of other unsubstantiated claims. What did Hulk Hogan do in response? Basically nothing. Hulk Hogan took the high ground. Let that sink in. – Jeremy

7. #JeffHardyWatch – Join Twitter and help us mock one of our favorites as he awaits trail for a September 2009 arrest for possession of 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. Is this a completely dickish and unnecessary thing to do? Yes, yes it is. But it’s funny. – Kevin

8. Make Up – The WWE must have actually had problems with the voting last week for “Power To the People.” They advertised for nearly a week before that Sin Cara would take on Evan Bourne. As a second make-up, without acknowledging it, they had Kofi Kingston spin the Raw Roulette Wheel and get a “Player’s Choice” stipulation in which Vickie was then banned from ring side. Good on you for listening to the fans. Now do it more often. – Kevin

9. Sin Cara – He really really sucks. – Dusty

10. Sweet Daddy Siki – In his book, Bret Hart identified Sweet Daddy Siki as the best. That statement was a true statement. – Dusty

11. Raven: Wrestling Superstar – So at SuperCon in Miami, Raven had a booth. My eye in the sky tells me he was visited by maybe eight people within an eight hour time frame. He was rude to boot. He’s The Wrestler without a career peak. I hope he dies. I also feel the urge to point out how absolutely terrible a show Ghost Hunters is. – Dusty
