Hi, folks, it’s Great Puma here. Mascara De Fuego is away hunting elusive chupacabras in the L.A. River. Wish him luck!

Toolbox is NOT part of the announcing team. Yes!

Striker calls out Derrick Batemen for cheating.

Show starts off with World Champion Edge coming down to the ring and goes right into talking about The Miz. Edge doesn’t feel like waiting at shit like the DMV or the dude in the supermarket paying by check or waiting at the airport or waiting for Cole to stop being a tool or waiting to wrestle the Miz… and we get an email and Cole has a shit grin on his face. He reads the email that says his match will happen later tonight and how the GM didn’t forget all the shit he went through with Edge. The GM has arranged an exhibition, if any of the next three men throw Edge over the top they will get the #40 position in the Royal Rumble.


Happy Anniversary!

One year ago we started this blog with the intent of sharing our perspective with fellow wrestling marks and fight fans. We’re not the biggest blog in the world but it’s nice to see that we have our own little corner on the internet with our own way of sharing things. It’s been a fun ride and we look forward to sharing our thoughts on the sport we love for years to come. If you’re reading this…thank you for your interest and time.

Here’s are first post on Paul Heyman not joining TNA. LOL! Short and sweet.

Smackdown Thoughts & Review [1. 21. 11]

January 21, 2011

Tulsa, OK

The Smaxxus come out to the ring and introduce themselves. Wade calls his new band of hooligans ‘The Borre’. He says there’s no leader and that the group is not about him but about them all as a collective.

  • Teddy Long comes out and says they’re not going to pull that RAW nonsense on his show.
  • Ezekial says they can take Smackdown to a whole new level.
  • Long says they better play by the rules or leave. Holla playa.

Alberto Del Rio comes out! I’m a mark for Del Rio…but you already know that. He has a mic:

  • He emphatically introduces himself to the Bore.
  • Smackdown is his show and he’s the man who’s going to win the Royal Rumble because it’s his destiny.

–Interesting start because it’s almost a tweener turn for Alberto. He’s basically standing up to what may be the biggest heel collective on Smackdown yet he’s still arrogant as ever. The funny thing is that he owns them in every aspect of the game, from promos to in-ring talent. Hopefully, they’ll figure out a way for ADR to give The Bore the rub.

It was also nice to see Teddy Long show some balls. It would prove to be fascinating if they follow through and have The Bore dominate with clean victories and without the heelish and unfair beatdowns.

This shit sandwich starts with a recap of the Jarrett’s/Angle bowl shit from last week. They then go to the back where Angle pulls up in some muscle car. He tells the production team (hey its Jimmy Hart) to play his music… so THIS is how they do it before they interrupt the show. Haha He comes out and bitches how his ex-wife who he brought into TNA liked to hang out with Jarrett and how Jarrett is throwing their relationship in his face. Dude starts to get all teary eyed talking about being a great father and husband, how he should have spent more time with that but he was working his ass off for them. Jarrett’s music hits but we get his asshole squad who gets beat down. These fools OVER sell Angle’s punches. Flair and Bischoff then come out and send “cops” to escort Angle up out of here.

They sure run a lot of clips to open this show, damn near recapping the whole season so far.

Striker intros the rookies with their pros although the rookies are the only ones that come to the ring. We have an elimination tonight but Bateman is in the lead with points with 4. This challenge is who knows their pro better… Match Game style for all of you older fans… apparently Bateman and Bryan have rehearsed their answers. Ziggler keeps taking digs on Saxton… Bateman takes it even though its obvious Bryan and Bateman cheated. So Bateman gets 4 points bringing his number to 8 total.



January 17, 2011

Show starts off with Vince’s stock MLK footage, always solid to see even Vince give props to Martin Luther King… then asshole John Cena’s music, cause when I think MLK I think… Cena…?

Captain obvious points out that the footage being shown and how he got his ass kicked three weeks ago. He then lists off shit he’s going to do this year which all end with going to WrestleMania. He calls out Punk but gets WWE Champion The Miz and Alex Riley who are all decked out in suits. Miz says no one wants to see Cena win the WWE Title because its played out. HA! Miz says he’s the most see champion even more than Cena and how he isn’t going to win the Royal Rumble match. Miz brings up that this year the Rumble will have FORTY participants! Damn that’s a lot of fools! Miz tells whoever wins the Rumble best not go after him because they will lose. Cena makes Miz in a not funny way and goes into a bad Rocky Balboa impersonation. He then goes for the cheap pop saying Orton or Lawler should be champion. Cena goes on and on trying to be funny and Miz is not amused. This is dragging… Miz calls Cena corny, no shit man… Cena tells Miz he wont get past the Rumble. Before these dudes even do anything Punk’s Nexus comes out to the stage. Punk tells Miz he doesn’t have to explain or prove himself to Cena and kisses Miz’s ass. Punk states that Cena does have a chance in the Rumble since all of Nexus is in it and their goal is to keep Cena from winning it. He then sends Nexus to the ring and they jump Cena, he tries to fight off but all of a sudden Santino and Kozlov HELP Cena…!?!? Nexus regroup and now all of Nexus heads to the ring and we get an email… the GM bars any Nexus member from ringside and if they get involved they are out of the Rumble… I don’t know why this 17min segment seemed longer than it was. Glad its over.


Matt Hardy: All Talk No Results

January 15, 2011

*** Please note this image is uncredited as I could not find the source ***

For months Matt Hardy would tweet about how he was ready to move on from his WWE career and how he was going to evolve not only his character but himself physically. The WWE finally let Hardy go and we all figured it was just a matter of time before he joined Shannon Moore and Jeff Hardy in TNA.

Well, at the TNA Gensis pay per view Matt Hardy did debut and he was right… his character and his physique looked totally different… just not what we were told or expected….

As you know Matt debuted as the mystery opponent to Rob Van Dam looking more like Raven now a days than this evolved character he kept talking about. In a long trench coat, hair braided and a pot belly, Hardy’s debut was dead even before he got to the ring. Something that could have been done properly and built up to was not only done WAY too early but before Matt was even ready.

Now Matt joins a LONG list of talent that have gone to TNA only to be in a worse spot that they were in the WWE… forgotten.

NWA Hollywood Thoughts & Review [airdate: Jan 14, 2011]

January 15, 2011

Joey Ryan and Willie Mack promo

  • Ryan says he’s done nothing but trained to beat Avalon and KAOS.
  • Mack says KAOS is a phony.
  • He says he’ll crush them with a Chocolate Thunderbomb.

–Decent promo to get you hyped up for their Tornado Match against KAOS and Avalon. Was this filmed in VHS? I’m trying to figure out why NWA Hollywood’s look seems so analog.


Smackdown Thoughts & Review [1. 14. 11]

January 14, 2011

[*UPDATE: 2 GIFS added after the jump]

Birmingham, AL

Ricardo Rodriguez announces Alberto Del Rio. Rodriguez is gold as usual right before he speaks on the mic.

Alberto Del Rio grabs the mic:

  • ADR reiterates that it’s his destiny to win the Royal Rumble.
  • He calls Shawn Michaels a dog.
  • He says he will be known as the new Mr. Wrestlemania.

R-Truth comes out with a mic:

  • Truth says ADR has lost his mind.
  • He calls ADR ‘Poncho’ and says he has a very creepy ring announcer.
  • Truth says that ADR can’t win the Royal Rumble because he has fancy cars.
