Once again, Dusty, Kevin and Eric come at you mid-week with their thoughts on the world of professional wrestling. Raw was actually noteworthy and not totally fast-forwardable this week; what did the guys think of the Vince McMahon-Shawn Michaels-Bret Hart segment? What about the challenge of John Cena to Sheamus? Or how about that Melina, huh? She’s really awesome with the injury and all. The triangle of terror also discuss Hulk Hogan and how he latches onto the popular thing at the time to make himself look good. What a nutcase. Finally the guys send out their condolences to the family of “Dr. Death” Steve Williams and discuss why he’s so awesome. All that, and no talk of mickie james, gas mask, mickie james hot, mickie james no clothes, scott steiner (seriously, those are our top searches), so click and enjoy!
In case you think we are being dicks, which is entirely possible mind you; here is a link from prowrestling.net. He may have never acheived huge stardom in WWF/E but Steve Williams was the first wrestler who legit scared me as a heel. From The Varsity Club to his hook up with Terry Gordy, he was a legit looking badass. it never made sense to me how he didn’t catch on on a grand scale in the states but whatever. One of my all time favs is gone. Cancer is a son of a bitch. Now, at least, he has some peace from the pain. -Jeremy
Word going around the Torch forum campfire is that Melina is injured. Remember when she started out in WWE with MNM and she was sexy, and the gimmick was cool, and everything was Old Lady Wilcox and you thought this was going to be the greatest thing ever? So then they turned her babyface and she’s the worst babyface in wrestling history. And now she’s injured and will be missed by no one. Sadface Boulevard. - Dusty
OK so it is official, according to Prowrestling.net. What a shame, at least this gives her time to take some acting classes. You know, so she isn’t totally unbelievable as a face. -Jeremy
According to Prowrestling.net, the Young Bucks have signed with TNA. This follows what was called a “great” dark match against the Motor City Machine Guns. Rather than paste what Powell wrote, let me paste what Jordan and I had to say about the Young Bucks after we saw them at the Dragon Gate show in Chicago over Labor Day weekend:
The Young Bucks suck. They have a couple of OK moves, but they are boring babyfaces and look cheesy as shit with their tassles and “YB” on the asses of their blue tye-dieish tights and their “COME ON, BABY!” offense. The crowd spent their entire reactions chanting “H-A-G-E!” at the bald Horiguchi (that’s how you spell “bald” in Japanese), and Horiguchi was superbly entertaining in his reactions. One of the Bucks kicked the ref to bump him (whoa, Gabe, take it easy), so the Bucks got a visual three-count. Thankfully, Horiguchi sprayed blue mist into one of the Bucks eyes (good god, man, Russo called and wants his playbook back) then hit some sort of cross-armed facebuster for the pin. Blond Buck then started crying for his brother, begging the gods to deliver him a bottle of water to rinse out his precious partner’s eyes. He bitched, pissed and moaned at the ref like a good babyface should, then the two raised their hands at the top of the ramp even though they didn’t win. Oh, go away.
If they’re half as cheesy in TNA as they were that night, they’ll still be twice as cheesy as Mick Foley. Hell, Foley might overhear that they’re “cheesy” and eat them! -Eric
Happy Boxing Day, everybody! Dusty and Eric team up for this audio, officially recorded starting Christmas Day and ending about half an hour into the following morning. But whatever, it’s a weekend audio! The guys talk about the deaths in professional wrestling in the year 2009, as well as the last Smackdown of the year. Eric also reads from the January 1995 Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine and finds a wrestler’s name you have to hear to believe. Also, what hot tip does Eric have about TNA iMPACT!, set to air Jan. 4? Click and listen! (65 minutes)
From all of us here at Stunt Granny, Merry Christmas.
If you don’t celebrate Christmas you are an idiot. You are totally missing out on a wealth of gifts and family guilt. So put down the Menorah. Toss the Koran away and pick up a failing evergreen tree and get in the Christmas mood. You don’t even need to muddy the waters with the whole Jesus thing. Embrace Santa and his crass consumer ways man!
Oh and we’ll be back Monday unless something totally crazy happens.
It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas! Dusty, Kevin and Eric take up the three-man booth this week to discuss tons of rumblings and goings-on in the wrestling world. With Scott Hall and Sean Waltman scheduled for TNA iMPACT! on Jan. 4, how will the inept company screw up the potential reformation of the NWO? Does that incompetence lend any insight into why Sheik Abdul Bashir was willing to leave, or why Tommy Dreamer is willing to go? And what the hell is wrong with Kid Kash? (Hint: Everything.) All this and thoughts on Monday Night Raw are just a click away! (59 minutes)
On the tenth day of Christmas, my imaginary love got for me ten pair of John Morrison’s sunglasses, nine TNA Winged Warrior T-shirts, eight Taz Beat-Down T-shirts, seven Official TNA 2010 Wrestling Programs, six Undertaker Deadman Skull Caps, five pair of Degeneration X slippers, four Rey Mysterio Camo Replica Masks, three Abyss Masks, two Sting Teddy Bears and one Sting Mask “Wall Art” in a pear tree. My imaginary love certainly knows my penchant for losing sunglasses, even the perfect pair from Disney World that fit my fat head. It’s a nice stocking stuffer of a gift but I do wonder how well you can see out of the Rhinestone crosses. The dark tint of the lenses helps to offset both the gold frame and the white/clear Rhinestones. They’re decent but the Rhinestones really make them douche-tastic.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my imaginary love got for me, eleven John Cena Floor Mats, ten pair of John Morrison’s sunglasses, nine TNA Winged Warrior T-shirts, eight Taz Beat-Down T-shirts, seven Official TNA 2010 Wrestling Programs, six Undertaker Deadman Skull Caps, five pair of Degeneration X slippers, four Rey Mysterio Camo Replica Masks, three Abyss Masks, two Sting Teddy Bears and one Sting Mask “Wall Art” in a pear tree. They’ll be perfect for the bad weather to wipe my shoes and my dogs paws on. I do wonder why they used a bulldog considering none of his other merchandise uses a dog. Dogs are loyal, but you’re not likely to see much hustle out of an English bulldog. If it could chew through a chain link fence, I would respect the fact that the dog will probably kill me when it’s loose. The picture does look kind of nice even after my jokes. It’s on clearance for half price so I’m glad my imaginary love is being thrifty during the slow economy. It’s not terrible, but who’s going to buy a floor mat at an event? Or even think to order one online?
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my imaginary love got for me twelve Divas Snow Globes, eleven John Cena Floor Mats, ten pair of John Morrison’s sunglasses, nine TNA Winged Warrior T-shirts, eight Taz Beat-Down T-shirts, seven Official TNA 2010 Wrestling Programs, six Undertaker Deadman Skull Caps, five pair of Degeneration X slippers, four Rey Mysterio Camo Replica Masks, three Abyss Masks, two Sting Teddy Bears and one Sting Mask “Wall Art” in a pear tree. I can’t believe how thoughtful she is! I’m sure glad the Divas got their own ring apron which is quite boring. The ring posts with ropes around the globe crack me up. At least they’re being detailed. There’s nothing more attractive than having some amorphous Diva blobs inside. They are having a pillow fight so there’s a legitimate reason for the “snow” on the inside. The pillow cases and bed sheets are both pink so at least they’re trying to make it a little girly.
I had to end on an epic fail. Too bad those WWE scumbags already took down the DX snuggle because that was going to be my twelfth day gift. Merry Christmas Grandkids! - Kevin

This totally sucks. According to Jason Powell at Prowrestling.net via Dixie Carters twitter, my favorite TNA Knockout Roxxi broke her ankle. It is a rare thing when watching TNA that I actually feel like I am not being sodomized with a Texas Pete lubed chainsaw. Imagine my surprise when Roxxi showed up last week and then beat ODB. She was finally getting a push and all seemed right with TNA. Visions of Alyssa Flash versus Roxxi danced in my head and the knockout division actually mattered again.
Now it doesn’t and I hate TNA even more. Is it their fault she broke her ankle? Probably not but I blame them for everything else so this is yet another thing they have done wrong. How? I don’t know but whatever. I am sad. -Jeremy
