Stunt Granny Audio #225

Well gang, it looks like Dusty’s audio ban has been lifted, as the Wisconsin Dream joins Kevin Difrango for this action packed edition of Stunt Granny Audio! The duo start things off by talking baseball. Dusty’s A’s are playing Kevin’s Pirates, so there is worlds of intrigue at play here. Why is Bud Selig waiting for the All Star Game to levy fines? Why not wait until Feezil Day? The conversation then turns to the upcoming Money in the Bank PPV spectacular. Who will win the A-team MITB match? Who will be the Shelton Benjamin high spot artist who has no shot of actually winning? Will Kane actually be in the match? (WWE.com says yes, Wikipedia says no. Who can you trust in this day and age?) Then it’s time to talk about the B-teamers match. Kevin realizes there are many guys in the company who are just spinning their wheels. Any one of them could get a win at the PPV to get out of their funk. Dusty breaks some nooz, revealing to Kevin that in addition to the GutCheck guys, Matt Morgan has just been released from TNA. They discuss the possibility of him coming in to WWE. They also talk about the exciting debut of the Wyatt Family and the possibilities of their future use, and Dusty drops a Pat Buchanan reference. And a whole lot more, so listen or you will perish.

WWE.com adds Scott Steiner to alumni section just as TNA threatens Steiner with legal action

RRRRRRIPPED from WWE.com.

Well son of a bitch, I thought I was going to break some news here, but as I searched Prowrestling.net for this article about TNA threatening the hilarious, effervescent, verbose Twitter fiend himself Scott Steiner with legal action based on his derogatory (accurate?) Tweets aimed at TNA, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan, I found this article talking about exactly what I was going to talk about: WWE.com has added Scott Steiner to its alumni section, proving once again that Joey Styles has a great sense of humor. This is classic WWE, never acknowledging its competition but finding brilliant ways to celebrate others’ ridiculousness. (Hell, they did it TWICE to Dusty Rhodes – see: Virgil and Akeem – before hiring his goofy, doughy ass.)

I guess I just learned a lesson: Stop working at work and start finding more wrastling scoopz. -Eric

Wait, is Beth Phoenix really hurt?

For anyone that missed Monday Night Raw last night Beth Phoenix lost the Divas Title to one of the Bellas. It doesn’t matter which one since they are gone at the end of the month anyway. What is important was the angle that took place during the match. Supposedly/Apparently Beth Phoenix rolled her ankle and thus lost the title.

At first this looked to be just an angle but now WWE.com has stated it is a legit sprained ankle. But then there is a report at the Wrestling Observer via Gerweck.net that the plan was for her to drop the title anyway so that Kharma could take the title without beating Beth.  Beth herself has posted on Twitter about people helping her through the airport this morning.

Thank you to everyone that helped me thru the airport this morning. Will keep every posted on MRI and xray results. Believe me…nothing …hurts worse than my heart right now after the loss and even worse thought of missing competition. But i have been bere before, and if…there is one thing Beth Phoenix knows how to do, it’s rise from the ashes. The title will be mine again. #unbreakable

So what is the truth? Did she happen to hurt her ankle in a stroke of good luck, if you can call it that? Was that incorporated in to the match or was it part of the plan? It sure looked harmless but then the dumbest injuries usually come from something silly. In this case that something silly is the task of jumping off the apron, three feet, to the padded floor.

So, here’s wishing Beth the best of luck in her injury or fake injury. On a selfish  note if you need any help with rehab hit me up. @grannymaes on Twitter. -Jeremy

Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston want YOU!

… to help them pick out a name for their tag team!

The Legion of Doom. Demolition. The British Bulldogs. The New Age Outlaws. Yes, even The Rock ‘N’ Sock Connection. All great tandems that cemented their place in WWE history by attaining tag team championship gold – and by having awesome, undeniably catchy monikers.

On Raw, high-flyers Kofi Kingston (@TrueKofi) & Evan Bourne (@FindEvan) joined the ranks of WWE’s most elite and dynamic duos by becoming WWE Tag Team Champions. There’s just one problem: What the heck are we going to call them?

In a WWE.com exclusive video interview, The Dreadlocked Dynamo & “Air” Bourne asked the WWE Universe to name their team, which joined forces just one week before their incredible victory over reigning champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty. 

Unable to resist the urge to take up this challenge (and to get your creative juices flowing), we came up with our own unique descriptors for the newly christened titleholders.

OUR TEAM NAMES:

Flight Club

 Dreadlock & Load

Boom Raiders

 The Wing Men

The Boom Squad

The Kingston Duo

Fly Guys

The Bourne Supremacy

Altitude Era

The Legion of Boom

What do you think of our choices? Can you come up with an even better name for these aerial experts? Share your ideas on Twitter, using the hashtag #EvanandKofi.

I think those choices suck, WWE. The Air Raiders, ftw. – Dusty

WWE.com Fail

Oopsy. – Dusty
