Wanderlei Silva vs. Chuck Liddell vs. Randy Couture… Photoshoot

August 24, 2009 by

Sorry, this is not an upcoming triple-threat match at UFC 110.  The three former champions took part in a covershoot for Fighter’s Only Magazine and the magazine threw up a video of some of the experience on their YouTube page.  This probably shouldn’t be all that entertaining but if you are obsessed with fighting, it probably will be.  I’m just glad the best guy got the center spot on the cover.

Bryan Danielson Signs With WWE

August 24, 2009 by

In a fairly surprising announcement, ROH has announced “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson has agreed in principle to a contract with WWE. This is the largest independent signing since CM Punk signed in 2005. ROH writes:

Farewell To A Legend
Sunday, August 23, 2009

Bryan Danielson has agreed in principle to a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Bryan has been an exemplary talent and a wonderful member of the Ring of Honor locker room and family since the inception of the company. We couldn’t be happier for Bryan and all of his successes, many of which Ring of Honor has been proud to witness first hand.

We congratulate Bryan on the beginning of this next journey in his brilliant career, and wish him all the best as he progresses. Many Ring of Honor fans refer to Bryan as the “best in the world” and we look forward to looking on in earnest as he shows everyone watching the wrestling world’s biggest stage just why that is.

Bryan will appear as scheduled at all of the September Ring of Honor events. Please join us in Philadelphia, Dayton, Chicago, Boston, and New York as we say thank you and farewell to a truly one-of-a-kind talent.

In which we learn about Chris Colt

August 23, 2009 by

Oh, the the things that Google finds for you…

Chris Colt is a name known to some older fans but unknown to most.  He had a reputation for being an incredible worker on the level of Pat Patterson or Ray Stevens (though unfortunately, the only match on videotape from his prime that’s circulating is kind of a glorified squash), and an eccentric wildman whose exploits were stuff of legend among wrestlers and some fans.  Several years ago, Dale Pierce, the foremost historian of Arizona wrestling (where Colt had one of his best runs), wrote an article about Colt and his tag team partner/companion Ron Dupree for GayProWrestling.com (not exactly a bastion of wrestling history pieces) of all places.  The original article, which I found while Googling for Colt info, is gone but still available via the Wayback machine.  Well worth reading, if just for stories like this:

He returned to Phoenix and was fired, when on an acid trip, he freaked out during a cage bout and thought he saw giant spiders crawling up the cage. Making his escape, he headed into the crowd, swinging wildly, and starting one of the worst riots ever in Phoenix.

Vince McMoments: Those jogging suit things and his laugh and being sad about Andre in WCW and stuff

August 23, 2009 by

In 1991, when Prime Time Wrestling switched to a new format of skits in front of a live studio audience in between taped matches, Vince McMahon became the new host.  Also in the midst of promoting the World Bodybuilding Federation, he made some odd fashion statements, even by his standards.
