The Daily News – “Mad Dog” Maurice Vachon Dies at 84

Greg Oliver of Slam! Wrestling reported that “Mad Dog” Maurice Vachon. I have never watched Vachon so I have no basis for writing this article. Luckily, Youtube has a clip of Mr. Vachon doing his speech for his Hall of Fame induction in 2010. Condolences to his family. – Kevin

Stunt Granny Audio Show #224

wrestling_fan_wedding cakeJeremy & Kevin had a plan, but they didn’t follow it to start the show. Why wouldn’t they start by talking about the marriage of Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd? Maybe because one of the hosts thinks that they were really cousins? Maybe because the other host thinks it’s incest? Is the WWE giving the Divas a proper hype as they prepare to unveil Totally Divas on E! Entertainment? Jeremy & Kevin move back to their plan by talking about CM Punk, Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman. Is CM Punk in the same no man’s land as a baby face like Dolph Ziggler? How do their situations differ? CM Punk and Paul Heyman are doing well in their roles, but how is Curtis Axel doing? How does Brock Lesnar figure into this situation? Would he ever interfere in the Money In The Bank match? The guys stumble back off the beaten path and talk about Kane. Is this latest effort with Daniel Bryan cementing his place in the WWE Hall of Fame? Jeremy & Kevin then tackle the Suicide escapade in Impact Wrestling. Which one of your hosts is too lazy to even read the spoilers for this week’s show? Which one has no idea what really took place on Impact? Can anyone really blame him? How smart is Austin Aries? They finish up the show by talking about the Wyatt Family. What are their names aside from Bray Wyatt? Who are they going to start them off against? Would they make a proper impact against 3MB? Join this two man band for an audio experience.

TNA is mad at Ric Flair

Naw, I got it covered Dave. trust me. Hey is that the backdoor?

According to Prowrestling.net, Ric Flair’s time with TNA may be coming to an end.  He has built up enough heat with the company that they may let him go. I wonder where Ric could go where if TNA let him go? Well, it may not be that easy, apparently he has been a very bad boy. Over at Gerweck.net they have more details on Ric’s exploits.

Apparently Ric has been doing the exact same things he was doing last year? Now it is a problem because, um, because he went to the WWE Hall of fame inductions and TNA got jack shit out of the deal? Ha ha bad businesswoman you got played.

I am sorry but I really think it is totally baddass and ironic that a 65 year-old man has been banned from The Hard Rock Café for essentially acting like a rock star. What happened to the world? You can’t act like a boorish fool in a place that owes its entire business  to a long established history of boorish behavior? Fuck off.– Jeremy

Yokozuna added to WWE Hall of Fame class of 2012

Bonzai!

WWE has announced yet another induction in to the fictional WWE Hall of Fame. The final inductee is Yokozuna. This is pretty good news because Yokozuna was fantastic. Sure he got a little to heavy at the end of his career but at the onset he was great. He may not have been Japanese but as a joyful tween it didn’t matter nor was it noticeable. Damn you dirt sheets for ruining it for me and planting subtle seeds of racism in my tender mind.

On a down note; Yokozuna is yet another wrestler no longer on this earthly palate that WWE has inducted. They are near perfect with inducting one dead wrestler a year since The Hall of Fame’s inception. Don’t believe me? Well here is a list.

1993 Andre The Giant
1994 “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers
1995 Antonino Rocca
1996 Vincent J. McMahon
2004 Big John Studd
2004 Junkyard Dog
2005 none
2006 Eddie Guerrero
2007 Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig
2008 “High Chief” Peter Maivia
2008 Eddie Graham
2009 The Von Erichs (Fritz,Kerry,David,Mike,Chris)
2010 Gorgeous George
2010 Stu Hart
2011 Road Warrior Hawk
2012 Yokozuna

There is only one year that a dead wrestler avoided induction and that was the stellar class of 2005. Now if Hogan, according to his book, had pulled the trigger you would have an after the fact dead guy in the Hall of fame but as it stands he is slowly killing himself working in Orlando. So, shouldn’t be too much longer really.
So congratulations to the family of Yokozuna. -Jeremy

Stunt Granny Audio #171

That's funking right.

Jeremy & Kevin are back together and they got funky. But before they talk about the man from the Planet of Funk, they have a nice long discussion about Jeremy’s article on TNA pay per views. What was Kevin’s opinion of the article? Did Jeremy point out their flaws without mentioning similar problems in the WWE? Did Kevin promise to start doing another review column for Impact Wrestling? Who from TNA’s Knockout’s Division recognized a tweet from him? The guys move on to talk about the booking of  TNA in general rather. Should AJ Styles still be feuding with Robert Roode? Would it help both of them out in the long run? Would it benefit Jeff Hardy too? Jeremy & Kevin finally move on to talk about the Funkasaurus. What did the character do to make Kevin think there is a trend in the WWE? They wrap up the show by talking on a shortened level about the Hall of Fame inductees, Edge and The Four Horseman? How important was Edge? What version of the Horseman do the guys think should have been inducted? Click on the link below to find out the answers to these questions and more.

Stunt Granny Big 11 Week Ending 4/23/11

1. 1-2-3 Kid – The King of Trios tournament in Chikara Pro Wrestling has been the talk of the town, and Sean Waltman, aka 1-2-3 Kid, has been the talk of the talk of the town. Glad he got over his hepatitis long enough to wrestle, have some fun, entertain the nerds, Tweet about being in a wheelchair in the airport after the weekend, and still have time to plan an intervention for Scott Hall. – Eric

2. Scott Hall – I bet enough people remember Scott Hall that an NWO reunion on A&E’s “Intervention” would draw a decent rating. “Did you guys come here to watch… dogthebountyhunter? Or are you here for the hot mess we call the….” *crickets chirp* “One more for the good guys.” – Eric

3. Jay Lethal – Lethal was the latest new-generation wrestler released by TNA — on his god damn birthday, no less — because they have fuck-all for management and foresight. Maybe I’m in the minority, but if I had money to blow to start a wrestling company, Lethal would be a top-10 pick, for sure. He’s 25 years old, he’ll outgrow the Black Machismo costume, don’t worry. – Eric

4. Sin Cara & John Cena – Sin Cara got a big chant going for himself but John Cena killed it because the whole audience doesn’t like him. I’m not sure why the WWE continues to let Cena give “rubs” to people. Cena is a huge star, just don’t have him do this aspect of his job. The WWE should also note that some wrestlers can get over without speaking a word like Sin Cara. – Kevin

5. Johnny Gargano – He’s been a staple of Pro Wrestling Ohio but is now “out indefinitely”. In the mean time, he’s in EVOLVE and got big wins over Jon Davis and Chuck Taylor to become the wins leader in the league. He’s got a couple of big mentions on Twitter (@JohnnyGargano). It’s only a matter of time until TNA or the WWE comes calling but for the time being I hope to see him back in PWO since I can actually watch that show. – Kevin

6. Stacy Keibler – I saw her when she was on Chuck recently. Now she pops up on Tough Enough to help with the cheer squad routine. Many people wondered if Stacy was making her way back into the WWE. According to her interview on MayhemNightMayhem.com, she will not be coming back any time soon. Evidently because she has so much in the works according to her iMDB page. – Kevin

7. Matt Hardy – Matt Hardy claimed he had a broken arm after Lockdown. Turns out it was just strained from bench pressing forty-seven thirty-pound containers of Mint Chocolate Chip Double Fudge Ice Cream with deep fried pork rhines in to that gape he calls a mouth. -Jeremy

8. TNA Lockdown – What a perfect PPV. You put a bunch of older wrestlers you can’t fire for fear of paying off large sums of money, in a cage and let them do all sorts of dangerous moves in the hopes one of them hurts themselves so severely you can cut their ass for not being able to perform. Who says TNA has no heart? – Jeremy

9. Signs at wrestling shows – If I had any type of control whatsoever, I would ban signs completely from wrestling shows. I think they are ridiculous, unnecessary and a bother to people who just want to come to a show to actually watch the show, and not just look at the back of your idiotic sign all night. However, if you put a gun to my head and forced me to allow signs under a condition, I would make that condition for you to have to be able to spell properly. Please. – Dusty

10. Superstar Billy Graham – So the Superstar is all butthurt now because WWE decided to put Abdullah the Butcher into their total fake, completely arbitrary Hall of Fame because Abby is a garbage wrestler or something. Abby meanwhile is confused about all of this, justifiably so since he can probably still, to this day, main event any indy show in the world, and has helped Graham financially over the years as well. Lesson learned: the only words that come out of Graham’s mouth are nonsense words. – Dusty

11. The Ultimate Fighter 13 – Not necessarily wrestling related, but everyone reading this should be watching this season of TUF on the reg, if only to count how many times Brock Lesnar uses the phrase “turn chicken shit into chicken salad.” – Dusty
