Slow News Day Video: Marty Jannety vs Balls Mahoney

So there really is nothing going on today so far. In the effort to keep our fans entertained we have decided to provide you with some video entertainment. Well, not really entertaining, I mean it is but it is also pretty sad.  Well, I guess it isn’t sad if you enjoy watching two way past their prime, alright I know it is Balls but go with it, wrestlers performing in front of a captive audience. No really the doors were locked. They had to be. After all who in their right mind wants to pay to see this garbage?

Ok, let’s start over. Marty Jannety hits Balls Mahoney over the head with a chair. Balls then proceeds to win the match. After all this he then throws up. It isn’t very pretty but it is worth two minutes of your life. I guess. Unless you overestimate just how important your time is and if you read this and watched this video you proved it isn’t worth much. -Jeremy

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
