Jobber versus Nobody (or, Raw dark match and Superstars results)

August 4, 2009


If you’re reading this, you’re probably curious about the result of the dark match between Alex Riley and Jamie Noble before Monday’s Raw taping. OK, maybe you aren’t. But you probably are curious as to who the hell Alex Riley even is. Well, he’s…that guy. In the picture above. Can’t really say much more. He’s working a high school football player gimmick, which is appropriate since a large percentage of wrestlers high school jocks who need an excuse to keep juicing themselves up after their collegiate athletic days are done. But when he debuts on ECW in a few weeks (that’s no guarantee, but all the new guys start on ECW, right?) he’ll no doubt become an internet favorite, so you might as well start liking him now.

Anyway, between this obscure young upstart and his opponent, Jamie Noble, who doesn’t exactly have Randy Orton’s win-loss record himself, one would question if it were possible for both men to lose the match! Fortunately for one of these men, that was not the case. But who would emerge the victor? In the pre-internet days, we’d have to wait for weeks for the news to arrive by carrier pigeon. But thanks to contributor Brian Mapes, the results are available just hours after the event took place. Plus, the winner Santino vs Chris Masters for this week’s Superstars, after the jump!

Find out after the jump.


Jim Ross Chronicles Part I: Kissing Vince’s Butt

July 21, 2009

WWE announcer Jim Ross has always had something of an interesting relationship with his boss, Vince McMahon.  Over the course of more than 15 years of employment, JR has been the clear-cut best play-by-play man in wrestling, signed many of WWE’s top stars in his former role as head of talent relations, and been a faithful lieutenant to Mr. McMahon all the while.  In response, McMahon has fired Ross twice, removed him from television a couple of more times, and booked him in a wide variety of humiliating situations on national television.  The most memorable such moment may have occured in November of 2001 when McMahon, perhaps more emboldened by his storyline vanquishing of WCW than his actual purchase of the organization earlier that year, began booking his employees to literally kiss his ass live on The New The National Network.  Following the hilarious sight of snooty Englishman William Regal placing his lips on McMahon’s backside, Vince attempted to force his top nemesis, Stone Cold Steve Austin, join the nascent “Kiss My Ass Club.”  Unfortunately, for his troubles, Vince had his ass whipped by Stone Cold’s belt.

After seeing JR respond to this butt-striking incident with the fakest laugh this side of the audience at a Mad About You taping, Vince, Kurt Angle and a beanie-wearing Undertaker (spouting such tough-guy phrases as “Vince, drop your pants” and “Pucker up, bitch”) forced Ross to join the club in place of his BFF Austin. Vince, wearing what appeared to be either a prosthetic ass or a pair of flesh-colored briefs, placed JR’s trademark cowboy hat atop his head as Ross’s lips touched his fictitious rear end. McMahon then danced around the ring to the sounds of Limp Bizkit in celebration of one of the most homoerotic segments in wrestling history.

Sadly for Ross, the butt-related humor at his expense was not over. Join us next time as Ross is nearly replaced by a man with zero experience in the wrestling business, hit in the balls by a 57-year-old woman, then had his colon surgery mocked on TV, all in the span of about two weeks.

Batista wears a speedo

July 21, 2009

When WWE announced its wellness policy in November 2005, some fans feared that the era of Herculean physiques on the company’s Entertainers was over. Thankfully, due to the miracles of modern nutrition and bodybuilding supplements, the recently injured Dave Batista is able to sport his steroid-free body in a Speedo on the beaches of Miami without fear of mockery from onlookers.
