Introducing the Stunt Granny Hall of Fame!

It's a celebration, bitches!

This day marks the second anniversary of the start up of ye olde Stunt Granny. To celebrate such a momentous occasion, I am pleased to announce the official Stunt Granny Hall of Fame opens today! There will be four official wings therein:

Serious wrestlers: This wing celebrates the lineage that dates back to Frank Gotch and George Hackenschmidt. We’re talking about good workers, high flyers, brawlers, whatever. Serious money drawing, money making talent.

Fun wrestlers: We here at Stunt Granny are big fans of comedy in wrestling, as long as it is done right. For example, a fat white man dancing poorly while claiming to be from deepest, darkest Africa will beat a midget transvestite any day of the week.

Angles: We’re talking about memorable, money drawing angles that inspired you to buy the next PPV, go to the next show in your area, watch the next television show on your favorite cable network, etc. Abortions and miscarriages need not apply.

Matches: We at Stunt Granny don’t give two scoops of Kellogg’s Raisin Fuck if a match was four stars or only three and a quarter stars or whatever. We just know what we like to watch. These are the matches we wear out our Beta, VHS and DVD players to.

Each one of the five of us – me, Jeremy Maes, Eric Nelson, Kevin DiFrango, Jordan Smith – nominated five people or things per category. And then we voted on them. A nominee needed three or more “yes” votes in order to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. What follows will be four separate posts, one for each wing, listing the first annual inductees into each wing of the Hall. Before I get to that, I’d like to remind you that the Stunt Granny Hall of Fame is brought to you by Red Baron frozen pizza, which just so happens to be the best frozen pizza that could possibly happen. Perhaps you should enjoy a slice today, while reading about the inductees. – Dusty

Stunt Granny Audio #46

Bring Da Noise!

Bring Da Noise!

Well, we are back again and bringing more noise in Stunt Granny Audio #46. This time around the boys, Kevin and Jeremy, discuss all manner of WWE related business. They concentrate on the differences between Smackdown and Raw mainly and how one show can be far superior to the other. They delve a tad in to the Trump mess and how none of it made a lick of sense and not just to them. They also talk about the hierarchy of both shows and how one clearly has the business in mind instead of personal gains. There is also a discussion of just why Triple H got so close to Randy Orton at the end of Raw and how this could happen on a PG television show. There is more but like we say; you gotta listen to hear it all.

Stunt Granny Audio Show #46

Stunt Granny Was Raw

I didn’t get around to this last night because I went home to watch the Penguins (lose) which is a funny story that I can hopefully tell if I record with one of the other chaps later tonight. I had the pleasure of sitting beside two people who didn’t quite fit in their seats and practically sitting on this hot wife’s lap.  Too bad her child and husband were there. I’d love to be able to make fun of the guy but he’s banging a smokin’ hot wife hopefully every night.

Shay Mack, a giant Irishiman, defeated Jamie Noble for Superstars.  Noble did some good mic work before the match making fun of Mack’s pastiness. Noble was on offense the majority of the match but Mack ended up winning with a Rock Bottom Back Breaker. He was OK and fits the WWE molds of  “Bigger is Better” and “Ethnic people we can exploit”.

Next was an “exhibition match” between the Big Show and Hornswoggle who got a solid pop. Big Show teased tossing him into the crowd but then Goldust made the save. Goldust got his ass kicked and Big Show left.

Lilian doesn’t just screw up on camera. She forgot to promote t-shirts and then had to do the shirt cannon. Josh Matthews did a best sign contest. There were a boatload of Cena signs. The Bella Twins did the kiss cam. They have much better trunks than I previously thought. I’m glad they threw in these random things because I couldn’t have handled another Wrestlemania or tour of Iraq commercial.

The Dark Match was John Cena & Batista against Big Show & Randy Orton. Orton continued to sell his injury from the end of Raw. The biggest pop may have been when Batista and Cena teamed up to suplex Big Show. Cena acted like all was fine and ended the match with an Attitude Adjustment on Big Show.

I’ll be back later with more of my observations and hopefully a show tonight. – Kevin

Stunt Granny is Raw

Kevin minus his playoff beard.

Kevin minus his playoff beard.

We’ve been a lazy crew recently, for various and sundry reasons, but I’m going to try and keep the content moving today. I’m supposed to be sitting in Section 103, Row B, Seat 3 but I just realized that my ticket was sent to my condo and I have no idea where it is. I thought I was going to pick it up at will call. I guess I’m going to have to do a little hunting when I get home. Maybe I’ll call Ticketmaster or Nationwide Arena to see if I can solve this problem. I should have them somewhere since there’s only 2 place I put my mail but stopping at Will Call would probably be easier.

This show is going to be a disaster from my perspective.  As soon as I bought the tickets and realized I would be just to the left of the hard camera, I was going to make a big old Stunt Granny sign but I completely forgot this plan because of the Penguins being in the playoffs (more on that later) and my general chaos that’s happening in life right now. So here we are on Monday morning and I don’t really have time to make the sign during my lunch (half) hour because I need to do real work (unlike what I’m doing right now) so I can bounce from here a bit early. Granted, this post has taken 10 times longer than it should have because of my breaks for work. The main point being, I thought I’d get us some advertising but I’m going to fail in that department.

The second point that is  a problem is the fact that the Pittsburgh Penguins have a chance to close out the Washington Capitals tonight in round two of the hockey playoffs.  I’ll probably soak up the first period and then roll down to Nationwide Arena. The start time being advertised is 8:15 so leaving around 7:45 should put my ass in a seat just in time for the begininng of the tapings for Superstars or ECW or whatever is being recorded these days. I can’t believe I’m missing the end of the game though.  Glad to have the handy DVR in these situations.

I did put my picture up at the top just in case someone wants to say hi that actually reads this site. I’ll update this as the day goes along with some other thoughts and preconceived notions of what I’m going to see tonight since I have no idea what is in store for the show. – Kevin
