TNA Audio #7 – Defecate In My Mouth

Pictured above: Kurt Angle

Dusty and Matt are back once again to discuss the February 23 edition of Impact Wrestling. Overall, they are very impressed with TNA’s long-term planning of storylines and matches, but are frustrated with the over-pushing of Hulk Hogan and the Bischoff Family. More importantly, though, they go off on several side tangents this week, including:

-Dusty debuting his new superhero alter-ego, Wrong Opinion Man

-Matt’s love for early ’90s WCW

-Just how exactly was the Shockmaster supposed to get over in the first place, even if he hadn’t tripped and fallen flat on his face during his big debut?

And a whole lot more nonsense, and it’s only worth about an hour of your time, so get in the festive holiday mood and give it a download why don’t you.

Stunt Granny Lunch Conversation: Jeremy and Eric, April 12, 2011

OK, so this is the first installment of what will hopefully turn out to be a recurring thing here. We often mention on our audios how we talk to each other during the day but that conversation never makes it fully to the air. Well, here is your opportunity to get inside our heads a bit as we work through angles, stories and news bits of the day that may not make air or print anywhere else.  Hopefully this is entertaining and not a droll, egotistical approach to adding content. -Jeremy

Jeremy: So what you feel on Edge? I think it is real but then they have him on Friday giving up the belt so I sniff an angle leading to one more match.

Eric Nelson: I would think that since he’s still capable of wrestling that he’ll wrestle Alberto at Extreme Rules. Edge has to be man enough to put someone over on his way out. Oh and yes, I bet he does retire for real after that.

Jeremy: See I am thinking he isn’t. Why else would they do it like that then give the heroes farewell on camera when he went backstage? Unless they have gotten really good with the backstage shenanigans. He was hugging heels. He even hugged Ziggler.

Eric Nelson: I think they have gotten good with it. They’re at a point where they either go big or say fuck it.

Jeremy: Also, if it was an angle why not run it on Tuesday for Smackdown?

Eric Nelson: Because no one watches Smackdown. Set the table for it on the show everyone watches, then on Friday, have the dastardly guy who you desperately want to be your No. 1 heel but isn’t quite there yet put your hero on the shelf for good.

Jeremy: Instead of a match? Or have Alberto hurt him again to force a match?

Eric Nelson: I say milk him for one more. I like Edge, he’s been around forever and he’s become a go-to guy. But who the fuck is Edge? He’s not gonna retire and just hand over the belt. I say Alberto pressures him into one last match.

Jeremy: I thought the same thing. He went over his history and it felt sort of empty.

Eric Nelson: Win lose or draw Edge gets to leave, but “Edge, you’re going to lose” then an arm breaker.

Jeremy: Playing in to the “losing feeling in my arms” comment? Another big part of his speech was the fact he mentioned not being in a wheelchair almost like he was feeding a promo for Alberto and a few weeks of sympathy from Christian.

Eric Nelson: Yep

Jeremy: So how dumb are we both going to be when we read the spoilers and he hands it over and gives a speech and that is it? Is that in the realm of possibility?

Eric Nelson: It is within the realm. Partially because WWE has actually done a lot of face-value stuff lately. What you see is actually what you get, no swerve.

Jeremy: True, but they also like to do this a lot. They have blurred the line so much it makes it hard to tell. It showed in the crowd reaction. They were all waiting for Alberto’s music. I know I was.  When it never hit I tweeted, ugh, “Wait is this for real?”

Eric Nelson: Yeah, I was waiting too;  every second of the promo.

Jeremy: Which speaks back to WWE having established 97% of what you see is a story. So you get these moments and they are sullied. Now if it would have been the day after WM maybe that doesn’t happen.

Jeremy: If these details are true, nah, he is done

Eric Nelson: Yeah, but they gotta cover their bases. Ooh, Neuropraxia, it has a name! Kind of like Randy Savage crushing Ricky Steamboat’s “larynx”

Jeremy: HA

Eric Nelson: How many 8 year old kids knew what a “larynx” was before that? But because they said that, it’s real. Plus, one more match and he could be paralyzed? Couldn’t that one match have been WrestleMania?

Jeremy: Exactly

Eric Nelson: Not that much has changed in two weeks. Not like there’s suddenly a kink in his spinal cord.

Jeremy: Unless WrestleMania made it that much more pressing.

Eric Nelson: Yeah, the payoff was too good. I don’t know, I have my doubts

Jeremy: Yeah, I am on the fence

Eric Nelson: Tonight’s tapings will be the factor, of course

Jeremy: Yeah will know more after tonight. On a selfish note; we never got an Edge Randy Orton feud did we? They had one match.

Eric Nelson: Nope, not a proper one like we should have. Rated RKO was a good team at a good time in their careers. Orton still coming up but already having proven himself, and Edge as a young veteran but a power player and a jerk.

Jeremy: Backtracking a bit, one thing I just noticed. “Medical professionals cannot clear Edge” so would they go the unsanctioned route? But then you can’t have it for the title.

Eric Nelson: Right, has to be for the title.
Eric Nelson: I will say this, I hope for Edge’s sake it’s not a ladder match. He doesn’t need that. Alberto could say, “You know, you’re the king of the ladder match, but I’m not afraid of that. I want to be the man who beats you for the title, not the man who cripples you for life…” “So you ARE going to wrestle me at Extreme Rules… it will no longer be a ladder match, but it will be no holds barred… and I WILL take your title”

Jeremy: That is the only scenario I can see playing out. Saves some bumps and go to a brawling match. Use interference for smoke and mirrors

Eric Nelson: Yeah

Jeremy: So after all that, I guess we have to sit back and look for spoilers?

Eric Nelson: Yep

William Regal Is Retiring?

So I saw this video  posted on Facebook and figured it was worth sharing.  It looks to me that William Regal announced he is retiring. Problem I have with this video though is it takes place back on September 11, 2010. Now I know this day has other events attached to it but still not one other wrestling site picked this up? So I have to question whether this is the real deal or not. Watching this it appears it is just an emotional moment after a match from Regal. He hasn’t exactly been a household name the last two years and maybe the hometown atmosphere got to him?

At the same time, I can’t remember the last time he was on television since September. Since I don’t do any research I will wait for someone to give me the exact date of his last in ring performance.

If this is the end for William Regal I can say it is time. WWE is moving away from older wrestlers and he certainly qualifies. I never understood how he didn’t catch on in WWE. He could talk, he definitely could wrestle but it was never the WWE style so I figure that is the reason.

So this is the obligatory part where I share my favorite moments. One would definitely be him making Goldberg look like a rube on Nitro. I remember watching the match thinking, “What the hell is going on?” Regal tied up Goldberg and nearly ruined his tough guy image in one match. Imagine how different things would have been if regal legitimately would have kept going and pinned Goldberg. Bill had no clue what was going on and had no defense so it wasn’t entirely implausible.

Then there was Royal Rumble in 2002. this is mainly known for Triple H winning the Rumble but it also featured William Regal defeating Edge for the Inter-Continental title. If you listen closely you can hear two people cheering at the end. That would be me and someone else on Stunt Granny. The match got no response form the live crowd but the fact that Regal won a title was enough for me.

Ok enough treating this like he died. It isn’t even clear if this is real but if it is, well, that stinks as a fan. As a fan though, I wish him nothing but success in the future. -Jeremy

Stunt Granny Audio #67

duver

There is so much to be said about building trust.

Dusty and Kevin, the resident workhorses of Stunt Granny Enterprises, are back once again to talk about a veritable plethora of wrestling related items. Dusty is mad as hell and he ain’t going to take it anymore when it comes to TNA’s nonsense. Kevin is hard pressed to disagree with any of it. They talk about why Dixie Carter’s love it or leave it speech was the absolute worst thing that could have happened for TNA right now. They also talk about Jamie Noble’s retirement from wrestling, and how it ended not with a bang, but a whimper. They also talk about a whole bunch of other stuff, and it’s in your best interests to listen to the audio to find out what those things are, because all the cool kids are doing just that.
