Kharma is out for “nine months”

So this explains the bizarre angle from Monday Night Raw. Wrestling Observer is reporting that Kharma is expected out for “over nine months.” Trust me it is in the link, you just need to scroll through a near endless amount of shit to get to any actual news bits.

Now there is no need to speculate but, um, nine months or more? Consider me skeptical on this one. This is a pretty poorly timed injury/yup whatever it is. Kharma was one of the only real acts going for WWE that was interesting. It is also a significant blow to Triple H’s ego as she was one of his pet projects along with Sin Cara who continues to frustrate.

At least the Divas can go back to not mattering again and more time can be given to the likes of Evan Bourne or Zack Ryder. -Jeremy

Taryn Terrell, aka WWE’s Tiffany, divorcing Drew McIntyre, doesn’t even know I’m alive

Pictured above: Newly single skank

According to her Twitter account about 18 minutes ago, Taryn Terrell, better known to WWE fans as Tiffany (or that bump on a log from ECW that was worth withdrawing from the spank bank every once in a while) is divorcing Drew McIntyre. Well hell, why not just read her Tweet for yourself:

With great sadness, I announce the end of my marriage. I wish Drew only happiness and continued success.

Good, now maybe he can focus on being as entertaining as watching ice melt, while she can go back to taking her clothes off somewhere without having a pouty Scottish guy with a ponytail to answer to. Win-win. (And for Mr. Morneau, win-win-win.) -Eric

Mick Foley shares YouTube video of ear loss incident

Mick Foley made a pro wrestling career out of getting beaten up, beating himself up, never being in shape (oh, I’m sorry, “looking different than everyone else”) and generally being a garbage wrestler before, during and after the term “garbage wrestling” was cool. And he wears the whole concept as a badge of honor. Or, in some cases, he wears it no longer: Foley Tweeted a link to a YouTube video, taken March 16, 1994, from a WCW house in Germany, of the match where he lost his ear while wrestling Big Van Vader. If you’re not familiar with the story (and if Foley ever found out that you aren’t familiar, I’m sure he’d offer to sell you a copy of his New York Times best-selling book, “Have a Nice Day”), Foley, as Cactus Jack, used to love to tie his head up between the top and middle ropes; one night in Germany while wrestling Vader, he couldn’t get his fat head out from between the ropes without, well, his ear tearing right off of his head. (Kinda like how he hasn’t learned that if you’re still holding a cookie while you’re hand is in the jar, it’s way harder to pull out. Speaking of which, I wish Mr. Foley would have pulled out 46 years ago.)

Start watching at about the 50-second mark and you’ll see his ear totally fall off while he throws a punch, followed by the referee picking it up and showing it to folks at ringside. It’s a historic moment and a turning point in the career of a man who prides himself on sustaining great deals of physical punishment and always working through the pain to finish his job and perform for the fans.

The real takeaway from this Tweet, though, is that Mick Foley spends a great deal of time at home googling “mick foley.” -Eric

WWE’s Randy Savage Tribute Video

If you followed our Twitter account I made the comment that it was near the end of Raw and no tribute or further mention of Randy Savage was made. It wasn’t a surprise since he has been persona non grata for WWE for quite sometime. Hell, they even reached out to The Ultimate Warrior for a Hall of Fame induction but not Savage. So, around 10:33 eastern Jerry Lawler finally gave the old time fans what they wanted. He introduced this video tribute to The Macho Man. Is it good, well, I got misty by the end. So I guess?

Anyway, the video was careful to show Randy mostly during his WWF days. Sure there are some shots of his WCW run but not the end of his run. It was a good decision. Most people remember him from WWF. Actually, I’d bet a lot more remember him from the Slim Jim commercials. So here, it’s a Youtube video by WWE so it won’t be removed anytime soon.  -Jeremy
