Two Great Things About Pro Wrestling

A Sick Collection of Low Ki Kicks

December 15, 2011

From Thunderfilez youtube channel. Enjoy.

I still can’t get the resentment out of my heart for the WWE not knowing what to do with Low Ki. Just the thought of Low Ki destroying Rey Mysterio’s head with a Black Magic kick (series starts at 0:18) keeps me hoping that Low Ki/Kaval will be back in the WWE someday. This is practically a who’s who of professional wrestling being blasted by Low Ki.

Gabe Sapolsky on Daniel Bryan, EVOLVE and life as a booker

September 2, 2010

From an exclusive on the Heyman Hustle:

Ex-ROH booker, Gabe Sapolsky, sheds some light on a number of subjects as well as what happened when he found out that Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson was scheduled to appear on the main event at Summerslam in his exclusive post for the Heyman Hustle.  I only pasted a small portion of this below because I really encourage you to read the whole piece. Here’s a small excerpt from an entertaining and very insightful read:


Daniel Bryan comments on Summerslam

August 17, 2010

Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson comments on his Summerslam Main Event experience, the name of his submission hold, and more in his latest blog post. Here’s an excerpt:

Coming out in the Staples Center and walking past The Miz to go fight with Nexus was an amazing experience and something I’ll never forget. And though I always feel I can do better, I was thrilled to be able to tap out two Nexus members before I was eliminated.

But speaking of the submission I used at SummerSlam, on the WWE Universe Facebook page they are asking for ideas as to what to call it. Its actually an omoplata with a crossface, but I’ve mostly just called it the LeBell Lock. Neil Melanson, my friend and one of the best grappling coaches in the country, taught me the move and he learned it from the legendary “Judo” Gene LeBell.

Danielson comments on release…

June 30, 2010

“WWE has come to terms on the release of NXT first season rookie Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) as of today June 11, 2010. We wish Daniel Bryan the best in all future endeavors.”

Since this statement was released I’ve been bombarded with messages asking me if it’s real, and by now I’m sure that most people know that it is.


Jim Ross on Lesnar vs. Carwin, Fedor’s loss and Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson)

June 28, 2010

Jim Ross shares his thoughts on Fedor’s loss, Strikeforce’s production value, Lesnar vs. Carwin, Daniel Bryan and a whole heap more from his latest blog post!  Here’s an excerpt:

Fedor’s Loss

Werdum’s upset of Fedor was obviously a shocker. Fedor’s ‘people’ lost a good deal of negotiating leverage but that’s not to say that Fedor Emelianenko isn’t still a bigger than life character but his mystique has been lessened somewhat. The Russian made a simple mistake that found him in BJJ skilled individual’s wheelhouse. Strategic error plan and simple that Fedor, exhibiting a great deal of class and humility, admitted in his post match interview.

Peta supports Danielson!

June 21, 2010

Vince McMahon
Chairman and CEO
World Wrestling Entertainment
1 page via fax: ___-___-____
Dear Mr. McMahon,
On behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the
WWE fans among our more than 2 million members and supporters, I’m
writing to toss our name into the ring as yet another proponent of the push to
bring back Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson). I might not personally carry the
same clout as other Bryan supporters like John Cena or Shawn Michaels
(although I do consider myself “The Showstopper of PETA”), but I am, along
with many of my colleagues, a huge Daniel Bryan fan, not only because he
humiliated the Miz and Michael Cole a few weeks back on Raw but also
because he’s vegan.
Lots of athletes, including baseball slugger Prince Fielder, the NBA’s Raja
Bell, MMA fighters K.J. Noons and Mac Danzig, and Olympic Legend Carl
Lewis, show that vegetarians often leave meat-eaters in the dust, gnawing on
their greasy chicken wings as they wonder what hit them. But Bryan represents
the quintessential vegan badass. He knows that unlike WWE superstars,
animals beaten to a pulp by the meat industry don’t want to be there. The worst
Hell in a Cell match is nothing compared to what animals in slaughterhouses
go through, such as having their throats cut and being scalded alive and
dismembered, often while still conscious. Even Mick Foley couldn’t withstand
that kind of abuse. Just by being vegan, Bryan saves more than 100 animals a
year, a feat far more impressive than any of Jack Swagger’s
“accomplishments.” Savvy athletes go vegan for the health benefits, too, as
they slash their risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
So what do you say, Mr. McMahon? Bring back Bryan and let him prove that
he belongs. And maybe there could even be a storyline romance between
Bryan and the gorgeous vegan diva Tiffany! (Who, in your PETA fans’
opinion, deserves another shot at Layla.)

Jim Ross on Bryan Danielson, Chuck Liddell and more

June 14, 2010

Jim Ross discusses the great career of Chuck Liddell, the odd termination of Daniel Bryan, the legacy of Grizzly Smith and so much in his latest blog entry.  Here’s an excerpt:

On Chuck Liddell

Watching Chuck, a man I have never met but feel like I know, get KO’ed was like watching my boyhood hero Mickey Mantle not be able to beat out a routine infield hit during the later days of the career of the fabled New York Yankee and #7. It was sad. That was not the memory that I wanted to remember my fellow Oklahoman. I wanted to remember the magnificent switch hitter hitting towering home runs just like I want to remember Chuck Liddell knocking people out with Government Mule toughness and tenacity.
