Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas recently caught up with referee Mickey (Jay) Henson here… EXCERPT: On missing the wrestling business: “Still have friends I keep in contact with. But the stress, the travel, having to kiss everybody’s ass to make them happy – I don’t think they can pay me enough to come back and do it again”
Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas also caught up with Al Snow here… EXCERPT: The most oxymoronic term out there is a ‘smart-mark’. Just doesn’t exist. Because how can you be smart at something – knowing somebody is lying to you, while actually believing the lie. It’s a term created by fans who believe they’re on the inside of something that they’re not really on the inside of. They’re not a part of the business because they don’t have a real stake in it.
Arda Ocal of Right After Wrestling sat in studio with the author of “Undisputed”, Chris Jericho to talk about his book, WWE, Fozzy, The Rock, and more here… EXCERPT: “It’s unfair to say ‘The Rock came back and he embarrassed everyone and he blew everyone outta the water’ – he always did! The only difference is in The Rock’s time, he has Austin, Foley, Jericho – there were guys that could hang at that level – some of the best promo guys of all time. It’s not that guys like Cena or Miz can’t hang at The Rock’s level, it just that he (The Rock) is so far above everybody else – he always has been…as a promo man, The Rock is the best of all time!”
Abdullah the Butcher also appeared on Right After Wrestling and confirmed that he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. You can listen to the podcast here.. He cited Terry Funk as one person he’d love to induct him. He also claimed that if he and Hogan were paired together ina feud today, they would draw money.

With a foreword by “Precious” Paul Ellering, *The Road Warriors* recounts the true, epic story of the most successful tag team in pro wrestling history. Rising to the pinnacle of the sport during the pro wrestling wars and the birth of the WWF, Laurinaitis gives an insider’s look at the often private and highly competitive business of pro-wrestling. *The Road Warriors* gives a play-by-play of their glory days, including the pair’s meteoric rise; their reigns in the AWA, WCW, NWA, WWF and WWE; and plenty of stories about fellow wrestlers Ric Flair, Jesse Ventura, Rick Rude, the Hulk, Bret Hart, and others. Laurinaitis also discusses his tag-team partner Hawk’s early tragic death, the sport’s larger problems with drug and alcohol abuse, and his life post-WWE as the father of Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis.
TWP MAGAZINE #12 NOW AVAILABLE!

I don’t even know if I could hang around with them they are so boring. They are like a bunch from a choir, they play video games and listen to their headphones, drink energy drinks and keep themselves to themselves. There is no beer drinking, no hell raising at all.” Download the PDF at http://thewrestlingpress.com/?p=2348
