The happiest day of my life

Once again, a victim of the bullshit of the politics behind that curtain.

So apparently Vince Russo has been demoted to Senior Writer in TNA, and in his stead is former DEJ Experience mole Bruce Pritchard. This is the happiest day of my life, for just so many reasons. That’s all I got. – Dusty

Matt Hardy: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

So now you need to read this:

Recently-released TNA wrestler Matt Hardy was rushed to an emergency room in North Carolina on Wednesday after “falling down in his home,” reports TMZ.Hardy was not feeling well, according to sources cited by TMZ, but it’s unclear what caused his fall. The extent of his injuries are “unknown,” but Hardy is expected to be kept overnight and released on Thursday.

On Saturday, Hardy crashed his Convertible into a pipe and tree driving between 55 and 70 MPH, according to a N.C. patrol officer. Hardy was subsequently arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. Hardy was not drinking, according to the officer, but appeared to have taken an “impairing substance.”

Hardy, who was suspended by TNA at the time of his crash, was released from the company shortly after news broke of his arrest.

Hardy’s mug shot following his arrest was released online this week showing Hardy in poor condition with what appeared to be cuts on his forehead.

 
Matt Hardy is going to die very soon. I will not care at all. – Dusty

Matt Hardy Arrested For DWI, Fired By TNA

While the shards of breaking nooz are jammed into my eyeballs, the gods of breaking nooz have blessed me kindly. According to tmz.com:

Wrestling superstar Matt Hardy was arrested in North Carolina today for suspicion of driving while intoxicated … TMZ has learned.

According to the Moore County Jail, Hardy was busted this afternoon by the North Carolina State Highway Patrol and released around 7:00 PM ET.

Hardy is currently part of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, but made his name in the WWE.

And then there was an update:

According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, a trooper discovered Hardy after his 2009 Corvette ran off the road and struck a tree. Hardy was by himself at the time and did not suffer any injuries.

The trooper observed signs of impairment and arrested Hardy. He was charged with DWI and the trooper found no other contraband in the vehicle. Hardy submitted to a blood test, the results are pending.

Say it with me now. I know you want to: soaked in trailer park! – Dusty

Update 2: Updatrick Boogaloo: According to several quasi-reliable online sources (including Bleacher Report, which is where I go for all my professional wrestling news), Matt has been fired by TNA because of this incident. So this is enough to get Matt fired, but awaiting trial for hella drug possession isn’t enough to get Jeff fired? I simply do not understand.

Update 3: IT SPEAKS!

When the side windows glass smashed into my face, arms, & neck, some of the blood that did felt almost angelic. I went from being afraid to die to feeling like I was almost being reborn with some sort of an ABSOLUTE PURE LIFE-FORCE. It was the most amazing thing I’ve every experience, I felt like I’d just received the blood of an angel flowing inside me-I know this sounds crazy! Due to these, I only have urges to help people. And miraculously, all my vices are gone.

Amen Friends,

MATTHEW

How do you imagine the person who would write such a thing to be? Mentally handicapped? Severely drugged up? All of the above?

The Young Bucks simply cannot cut it

Future WrestleMania main eventers.

Read this or I will have Papa Shango put a curse on you:

Goldust gave his thoughts about the Young Bucks on his twitter:

“As booker says…..better show some respect when in the locker room, there are good teachers here that know more than you young bucks….Just a reminder….if trying out for wwe….extend your hand,be polite and respectfull and do what your told. You dont have to like the golden one, but you will respect my knowledge of the business….jfyi”

Meanwhile, the only things the Young Bucks have said on their individual twitters were

Matt Jackson –

“Somewhere, somehow, there is a “tell me he didn’t just say that?” joke that needs to be told. I love you, wrestling.”

“Nothin’ but love & respect for all my peers in the business. Hope everyone makes their own decision based on their own experiences.”

Nick Jackson –

“I respect everyone in the business even if they have bad words about me. God bless them all. Thx to all the loyal fans that support us!”

Their brother, Malachi, had a lot to say about Booker T’s comments

“sounds like @BookerT5x is a little 12 year old girl on his young buck rant.”
“These vets such as @therealrvd and @BookerT5x are jealous of the young bucks cause they cant do half what bucks can do in the ring.”
“I can’t believe @MattJackson13 and @NickJacksonYB didn’t say hi to @BookerT5x ! #whatisthishighschool ?”
“@RRWWE (Ricardo Rodriguez) Booker t is mad cause they supposedly didn’t say hi to him so @BookerT5x is trashing the bucks.”
“I love when vets say stuff bout the young bucks. All they’re doing is getting them more popular :o @BookerT5x”
“I didn’t shake the hand of someone at work today. The person then tweeted bout how disrespectful I was being @BookerT5x #getoveryourego”
“@BookerT5x that’s weird you and rvd are the only ones out of hundreds of workers that don’t like the bucks. And btw they’ve already made it.

That was in response to Booker T posting on his twitter –

“Some advice to all the young guys trying to get in the business( IF U CAN’T MAKE IT IIN THE LOCKERROOM ,U WON’T MAKE IT IN THE RING) 5x”

Where do I even start? Fizzling out in TNA and then not being able to get into WWE does not equate to “making it in the business.” Let me be as clear as possible. They are horrible professional wrestlers. They are horrible human beings. They wrestle in a way that shows them to not respect the business in any tangible way whatsoever. They are leeches trying to extend their 15 minutes of if-you-can-call-it-fame. The sooner they go away the better it will be for all of us that like professional wrestling and the people who can actually perform well at their trade. – Dusty

So Jimmy Yang still hasn’t gotten paid

It was all downhill from here, folks.

Speaking of TNA being soaked in trailer park, they apparently have yet to pay Jimmy Yang. Here’s what I’ve been able to gather from various internet reports about this. Yang did a one-shot appearance in TNA on the June 27 Impact Wrestling taping, reviving his old Flying Elvis character. The Flying Elvises were the first thing that ever appeared in TNA, way back during the weekly pay-per-view era. I used to get all those shows, because I had a friend who was willing to go half-and-half with me, and I was so desperate at the time for an alternative to WWE. Naive young Dusty.

In any event, it’s been since then and Yang has yet to get a paycheck from TNA that doesn’t bounce like a Milwaukee Bucks basketball. So naturally, this led to an upset Yang taking the whole thing public. For some reason, that action caused TNA management to call him up and tell him he was acting unprofessionally. An enraged Yang fired back that not paying someone for their work is what is *really* unprofessional.

Look, I know I’m Anti-TNA Guy around here. My colleagues usually choose to handle TNA with more diplomacy, for reasons that are lost on me. But I don’t think there’s any way to sugar coat this. This is TNA failing on an epic, public scale. Stuff like this is only going to serve to encourage released WWE performers to ply their trade in Japan or elsewhere overseas. TNA is the Little Engine That Absolutely Can’t But Insists On Continuing Anyway. – Dusty

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
