Stunt Granny Audio: Waterloo, Iowa Hall of Fame 2012 Edition

Three of these things are not like the other.

Join us for a very special edition of Stunt Granny Audio, recorded immediately following the activities of the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame inductions in Waterloo, Iowa, held in conjunction with the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. Eric, Dan and Matt attended a number of those events, including the Impact Pro Wrestling show (Matt’s first indy show!), the tribute to Danny Hodge, the Q&A session hosted by Bill Apter, and the banquet and hall of fame inductions. Hear first-hand accounts of the wrestling show, including #MountRushmoring with Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana, time spent at the hotel bar schmoozing with wrestlers and fans, asking good questions to balance the bad ones, and of course the fallout of Kurt Angle no-showing his induction into the hall of fame. Also, what games should you play at the Isle casino? Where should you eat pizza when you stop in Waterloo? All this and so much more if you just click the link below!

Hulk Hogan makes rounds in media, disses Obama, Tim Tebow, Bobby Roode

Hulk Hogan has been making the media rounds this week to plug TNA’s “Super Bowl of Wrestling” (yuck), Bound For Glory, airing this Sunday on pay-per-view and bound for, at most, 10,000 buys. Anyway, in the video above, Hogan appears on ESPN SportsNation (does every god damn show need two words that run together?), calling out Tim Tebow, or should I say, “Tim TiVo” for completely nondescript reasons, like having small legs. I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan, one of the biggest stars of the 1980s, has never heard of Tim Tebow, one of the bigger names in football today, and that says more about Hogan’s obliviousness and nothing about his faded star power.

Speaking of people and things Hogan knows shit about, according to Prowrestling.net, he claimed on the the Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton radio show on WFAN in New York that he used to wrestle Pride fighters when he wrestled a lot in Japan. That was the late late 1970s and early 1980s, when Pride was only a twinkle in Kakutougi’s eye. But, as always with the Hulkster, never let 93,173 people get in the way of a good story.

Hogan also appeared on Fox News Channel, saying he no longer supports President Barack Obama, who Hogan claims has done nothing in the past three years to make America better (OK, not every tale is a tall one). He says he himself would make a better president because:

I’ve been around, people know me, they know everything about me, they know I’m for real, they know I know nothing about politics.

Nope, he only knows about the bullshit of the politics, M I RITE DUSTY!

And according to Prowrestling.net, Hogan appeared on the Sirius XM show Busted Open and proclaimed that Bobby Roode, who headlines this Sunday’s Bound For Glory, TNA’s biggest PPV of the year, in a world title match against Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, sucks.

Nah, he’s not ready. He’s not the next guy. Ya’ know, they might think he is. Dixie Carter might think he is. The whole world might think he is. He’s not the next guy.

Once again, not every tale Hogan tells is tall. -Eric
