Vince McMoments: “I’m sorry, I find that comedic.”

August 15, 2009

“Pro Wrestling’s Hold On America” was a 1999 episode of ESPN’s Outside The Lines probably most notable for its coverage of wrestler deaths, but it was also fun to watch at times.  One of these times was when they showed Vince McMahon footage of the infamous skit involving Mark Henry and Chyna’s friend Sammy where they get amorous, leading to Henry uttering the immortal words “Oh!  Sweet Jesus! You got a penis!”

Great moments in Brock Lesnar history: Brock throws around Big Show

August 15, 2009

When Brock Lesnar was in OVW as a developmental wrestler, it was noted how insane his suplexes were.  Insanely strong and used to throwing around big dudes in legitimate competition, his suplexes on cooperating pro wrestlers were like nothing anyone had ever seen before.  Once he was called up to the main roster and quickly won the WWE title, he had two obvious potential challengers: Kurt Angle, the only ex-amateur in the company even more decorated than Lesnar, and the Big Show, the giant who only Brock Lesnar could suplex at will.

WWE Statement on McMahon Senate Run

Statement on Linda McMahon and the United States Senate

Linda McMahon, CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, is considering a run for the United States Senate representing the state of Connecticut. Should she decide to run, Linda would step down as CEO, and Vince McMahon would assume the duties of CEO in addition to his current position as WWE Chairman.

Can you imagine how busy the person assigned to do opposition research on the frikkin McMahon family would be? What an amazing thing this would be. With a Senate seat up for grabs, the skeletons would be marching out of the McMahon closet on a regular basis. And if she ran and lost, the WWE skits mocking sub-committees or rehashing the Senate Page Scandal would be epic!

We NEED this to happen.

Dana White’s Clash of the Champions

August 12, 2009

As we reported a bit earlier, UFC is now personally invested in being Strikeforce’s direct competition, in a move that will almost assuredly work out in the UFC’s favor.  Dana White seems to be taking this whole “Fedor Emelianenko” thing pretty seriously, so now he’s set the wheels in motion for head-to-head programming.  The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about this was remembering the actions of another bombastic promoter encountering something similar in the late 1980s: one Vince McMahon.

While the then-WWF and their rivals the NWA always were involved in indirect competition, something changed in 1987 when a scheduling war erupted.

Vince McMoments: Stand Back

August 11, 2009

So, you’re Vince McMahon in 1987.  Your wrestling company is releasing its second record album.  Jim Crockett, the guy you sold the coveted TBS wrestling deal to, is making a desperate national expansion that included buying a dying territory (in the midst of its own desperate national expansion) for millions of dollars so he could then pay millions more for said territory’s TV clearances.  Your next step is obvious.  You record a Jim Crockett diss track under the guise of an Andre the Giant tribute.
