On letting WWE induct Randy Savage into the Hall of Fame against Randy’s wishes, and the general lack of respect shown to him:
It occurred to me that I decided “what a minute, I’m not going to be put in the middle of all this.” The thing is the WWE did not ask my permission to run the parody of the Huckster and the Nacho Man, and I don’t have a battery of lawyers on retainer, so my belief is, do what you want. You want to honor him? Go ahead. This is the same company that didn’t send its condolences to my mother who is going to be 87 in January. Now I know they made a nice video tribute, but don’t you understand that that’s just PR. Just like when they fire you, they wish you luck on your future endeavors? That’s PR, they have a public relations department. So naturally, when somebody dies, and everybody always has, you know, because it’s either suicide or an overdose. In Randy’s case it was one of the few honorable deaths they’ve had. His toxicology report was crystal clear. Clean. And that meant a lot to me. Well, name a wrestler that died and they’ve all got something wrong with their toxicology report.
With this years PPV only a matter of days away i’m going down the list and reviewing the past PPV. Each articles will be a different year, also to see what was good and what was bad.
TLC 2010 This PPV once again focused on the young and upcoming superstar in Wade Barrett. This of course was the year of the Nexus who stole the summer in their take over / feud with WWE management. He took on the the face of the WWE in John Cena. Also on the card was a forgettable WWE title match with the Miz taking on Randy Orton. The under card was also forgettable. Hell this hole PPV was forgettable but the fact is its review time!
The Divas Tag Team Table match and the Tag Team Title matches were just filler. At the time the Tag Team division was a joke and had no meaning. The Divas match was a different from the norm and while the women gave good effort never stood out. Especially following a match before it.
#1 Contender Ladder Match For WWE Title: John Morrison Def. King Sheamus Before we get into this Lets remember that The Miz was champion at this time so the title was not was it usually is. The King Sheamus gimmick never got over and to have an Irish guy as a king was just laughable. Morrison has always been a guy that WWE management thought could be something but never matched up to the “Top Guy” role they wanted him to be.
John Cena Def. Wade Barrett in a Chairs Match. This really was the blow off with both guys, of course this was the year of the Nexus storyline and then they made Cena their B*tch. Cena got his revenge in this one and went on his marry way. Wade never rebounded since the Nexus and honestly looks lost. They have repacked him several times but nothing got him as over then when he was the top heel in the summer of this year.
Beau James and Joe Wheeler host the latest edition of Southern States Wrestling TV.
This week we hear from the New Southern States Champion Eric Darkstorm, a new video special on Misty James, The 2nd round for The TV Title starts as Lukas Angel vs. Chris Miles and Bobo Brown vs. DeAndre Jackson, plus a special guest who makes a big announcement about TNA Impact Wrestling coming to the area.

Maybe I’m talking about the masses or the few, every time the Slammy Awards comes around it is a big fun ole event. Now WWE had these for a few years back in the late 90’s but from an award ceremony to a comedy bit after a comedy bit, some have to wonder how things have changed. Now does it bring something different to the show yes. The problem is that it should be something taken seriously. If you look at some of the categories, you have to think why should I care about this? Or why is this even on here?
Professional wrestling has always been filled with hulking masses of humanity, doing battle to establish their supremacy over the competition. However, some titans towered over even the biggest Superstars.
Sometimes, these giants of the squared circle team up, resulting in complete devastation. Much like the duo of Big E Langston and Mark Henry on the Nov. 25 edition of Raw, these gargantuan grapplers left nothing but destruction in their paths. The carnage they caused seemed like something out of a monster movie, but for their opponents, it was very, very real and extremely painful.
