A First look at the Wrestling Retribution Project

February 5, 2012

MVP is Hassan Assad in the Wrestling Retribution Project (logo & picture are from

Here’s the first trailer released for Jeff Katz’ Wrestling Retribution Project. You can see Colt Cabana, Chris Hero, Luke Gallows, and PWG favorite, Joey Ryan, throughout the trailer. The action looks solid but I’m more impressed with the usage of the song “Intro” from one my favorite bands, The xx. Yeah, I realize that wasn’t very “wrestling head” of me to say but I have to admit I’m a little disappointed that MVP isn’t shown for more than a second or two in the trailer. Hopefully, he’ll be featured more in the next one. I’m looking forward to seeing more. Enjoy.

Transcript of CM Punk’s Promo on RAW

June 27, 2011

Here’s the transcript of CM Punk’s groundbreaking promo on RAW that melted Stone Cold Steve Austin’s TV.

John Cena, while you lay there, hopefully as uncomfortable as you possibly can be, I want you to listen to me.

I want you to digest this because before I leave in three weeks with your WWE Championship I have a lot of things I want to get off my chest.

I don’t hate you John. I don’t even dislike you. I do like you. I like you a hell of a lot more than I like most people in the back. I hate this idea that you’re the best. Because you’re not. I’m the best. I’m the best in the world. There’s one thing you’re better at than I am and that’s kissing Vince McMahon’s ass.

You’re as good as kissing Vince McMahon’s ass as Hulk Hogan was. I don’t know if you’re as good as Dwayne though. He’s a pretty good ass kisser. Always was and still is.

Whoops! I’m breaking the fourth wall! (CM Punk waves to the camera)

I am the best wrestler in the world.

I’ve been the best since day one when I walked into this company. And I’ve been vilified and hated since that day because Paul Heyman saw something in me that nobody else wanted to admit. That’s right, I’m a Paul Heyman guy. You know who else is a Paul Heyman guy? Brock Lesnar. And he split just like I’m splitting. But the biggest difference between me and Brock is I’m going to leave with the WWE Championship.

Johnny Goodtime is in the ring with his RockNES partner, Johnny Yuma

  • He calls out Natural Selection but the Cutler Brothers run in and wreck shop.
  • The Cutlers hit their Six Second Abs double team, an inverted backstabber from the wheel barrow position, on Yuma.

Natual Selection come out. Brian Cage has a mic.

  • He says they come out to answer the challenge but RockNES is nowhere to be found.
  • Young Hollywood, Todd Chandler and Brandon Parker, come out.

Shaun Rickers grabs the mic.

  • He tells Young Hollywood that their ‘skinny asses’ are going get crushed. Okay then.

~ Great promo by Natural Selection. Rickers can rock the mic.

Austin Aries promo

  • Aries says that Scorpio Sky’s 2 wins are a fluke and that he needs to even their series 2-2. It’s no laughing matter.

~ Aries = gold. Period.

Famous B promo

  • He tells Ray Rosas that he doesn’t forget anything. He’s going to get his payback.

Famous B. pins Tommy Wilson

  • Wilson tries to cut a promo and the crowd goes all PWG on him and starts a “You Shut Up” chant. He calls Famous B a wannabe. Harsh.
  • FB gets on a sleeper but is rammed into the turnbuckle.
  • Wilson counters another sleeper with a belly to back suplex.
  • Nice sequence where Wilson counters a sleeper with a potential sidewalk slam, but then FB counters with a headscissors. Very cool.
  • FB rolls over a powerbomb, rolls Wilson up for three and gets the ‘upset.’

Wilson attacks FB afterwards and Cedric the Hitman joins in the beatdown.

Andrew Hellman makes the save with a chair.

— Good short match. However, I refuse to call Wilson ‘Mr. Megastar’. It’s beyond corny. But perhaps that might be what NWA Hollywood is going for. C’mon NWA.

I wasn’t feeling the multiple sleeper hold attempts by FB. I don’t recall him using a sleeper on previous episodes so the attempts seemed to come out of nowhere. The match certainly picked up steam when FB used his speed and agility to avoid Wilson’s power moves.

Ugh. Not really digging the overuse of singles doing tag team matches to consolidate the feuds. I guess we’ll be seeing Wilson and Cedric vs. Hellman and B in the near future.

They show a collection of promos of most of the participants in the main event battle royal.

–This was excellent. It gets you psyched for the match and adds tons of meaning.

Todd Chandler & Bandon Parker defeat Lucha Machine & Ray Rosas

  • Chandler and Parker dominate early with three double team moves in a row. This almost seems like a tornado tag match. C’mon ref!
  • Lucha and Ray go heel to gain momentum.
  • Rosas gets stuck between Chandler and Parker and is destroyed by a chop fest. Wooo!
  • Chandler sets Lucha up in a tree of woe, Parker with a Super Ghetto Stomp from the top for the win.

–Good opener. What I liked most about this match was that it was kept short. All four men can certainly go but the double teams seemed a bit forced. Sometimes less is more. But I’ll be honest, I’m a huge Low Ki vs. KENTA fan and the Super Ghetto Stomp finish just made me want to see that classic ROH match again.

First off Happy New Year from Fighter Hayabusa!

This show was broadcast last Friday, December 31. I apologize for the lack of a Smackdown review. That should be coming soon if time permits. On with the show. Also, there are no fancy gifs this week since the fine folks at NWA Hollywood haven’t uploaded this particular episode.
