Up in Smoke: Diaz Out

August 11, 2009


Everyone knows Strikeforce fighter Nick Diaz likes to smoke it up. He’s a card carrying medical marijuana recipient who has already been busted once for fighting while high. So when the state of California called looking for some urine, Diaz was nowhere to be found. Some said he was training in Florida. Others claimed he was in the mountains. We don’t know for sure where he was, but it wasn’t at the urinalysis.

But apparently it is a little more complicated than a fighter refusing a pee test.




August 9, 2009

I figured I should post this one next since it was excerpted during the Costas interview. ..

After Trish Stratus tried to turn on Vince for the first time, he made her apologize to him as ridiculously as possible in one of the most infamous segments in Raw history and possibly the Vince-est segment ever on WWF/E programming (it would be this or “Stand Back” at the Slammys, one would think).  During the course of this piece of politically incorrect television, we get the following Vince quotes:

“Get on your hands and knees like a dog!  Get on your hands and knees like a dog, okay!  I used to have a female dog and that bitch did everything I told her to, NOW DAMMIT, GET DOWN, GET DOWN!”


“Now then, I want you to tell me in dog language just how sorry you are!  Okay?  Yeah, tell me in dog language!  Speak, Trish, speak!  YEAH, BARK LIKE A DOG!”

“I’ve seen you on all fours before, they haven’t.  Y’know what, Trish?  I’ve seen you in other ways and they haven’t.”

“If you’re really sorry, I’m wondering what color panties you’re wearing tonight, Trish!”

“If you’re reeeaaalllyyy, reeeeeeealllly sorry, take your skirt off, AND TAKE IT OFF NOW!”

“Are you sorry enough now Trish?  Are you sorry enough for Mr. McMahon?  You know what?  I don’t think so!  No, you’re not sorry enough for Mr. McMahon, so everybody that’s watching at home, I’m warning you now, everybody that’s in this arena, turn your back if you don’t want to see this.  You’re sorry!  Oh yeah, you’re sorry!  TAKE YOUR BRA OFF AND TAKE IT OFF NOW! TAKE IT OFF, TRISH!”

It’s terrifying, but it’s full of Vinceness.

Video after the jump (not 100% work safe due to Vince’s insane proclamations and Trish’s state of undress).


The Inside Scoop: Why Kendrick was fired

August 6, 2009


Brian Kendrick was one of the WWE’s most promising young wrestlers. With the company on a youth movement, he was a wrestler with the talent and drive to maybe one day fill a Jeff Hardy-type role. But his push kept being diminished and he was finally let go last month.

And the reason has nothing to do with his ring work. He was made an example, a very public warning to the WWE’s top stars.

Randy Savage shoved a steak down his pants

August 3, 2009

I haven’t been keeping up with former USWA referee/manager Scott Bowden’s Kentucky Fried Rasslin columns like I should have, but he’s posted some great stuff recently, including a great column about Randy Savage’s early career, the highlight of which is:

Savage and his rival Garvin (then nicknamed the “One Man Gang”…years before ICW wrestler Crusher Broomfield would use the same moniker as a headliner in the UWF and WWF) often cut televised shoot-like promos on each other, more than a decade before those type of interviews became almost the norm in ECW and WCW. For example, when Savage’s shoplifting arrest for attempting to walk out of a Kentucky supermarket with a steak stuffed down his jeans made the local newspaper, Garvin brought out the clipping on the show to humiliate the so-called heavyweight champion of the world.

If anyone is able to Photoshop a steak into a pic of Savage digging a foreign object out of his trunks from when he won the Intercontinental title, they will be my hero.

Lots of good stuff including some columns about Tampa mayoral candidate Austin Idol at

“War Is Over,” Hulk Hogan Hyperbolizes

July 28, 2009

The Suncoast News Reports:

After months of bitter accusations and cross-accusations, former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and Linda Bollea quietly settled their divorce this morning. The terms were not made public.

Signs that all had changed began when Bollea entered the courtroom and gave Hogan a peck on the cheek.

Then, each signed a document signifying their marriage was dissolved and they had reached a confidential settlement. Then, each testified they had disclosed all their assets and believed the other’s assets had been disclosed.

Hogan and Linda will now continue to do creepy and weird shit in public but at least they won’t be arguing about money.

History of Wrestling: “I need to speak to Tony”

July 25, 2009

In 1988, the Alabama territory had a feud in the promotion that was considered by many wrestling fans to be one of the best in the country that year. Tom Pritchard was the babyface Alabama Heavyweight Champion, upholding the fine values that Alabama is known for worldwide. His opponent, “Dirty White Boy” Tony Anthony, was the rule breaking heel, trying every underhanded trick to win the title out from under Pritchard. They had been feuding for a couple of months when the following interview takes place. (more…)

Lex Luger Glad God Has Forgiven Him

July 23, 2009

“Obviously, the tragedy with Liz and the drug overdose was a real low point. Things got rough with drugs and alcohol,” Luger said. “The high point of my life now is that by God’s grace and mercy only, I survived that. God forgave me. At that harsh point, I was able to forgive myself for the things that happened.”

Piper Charged

July 23, 2009

Prosecutors have decided to file DUI charges against former WWE star Roddy Piper. The 55-year old Piper was busted at 1 AM on July 2nd in Hollywood, driving erratically and failed the field sobriety tests. Of course, he would likely fail those tests stone cold sober. I though that was one of the reasons Piper always kept a stunningly fit young man around?
