Hey Ralph pants, what'd you think of Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior. I realized that I had never actually seen it, so I watched it on youtube the other day. I think they went a bit overboard on making them look so evenly matched. (one wrestler does something and looks like he has the upper hand, then the other wrestler does the exact same thing. lather, rinse, repeat.)

lol, I had a friend in middle school who was obsessed with pro wrestling*, I remember going to his house to watch wrestlemania that year and watching that fight. Even at 13, I remember finding the whole thing bizarre, sooo much of the "fight" consisted of one flailing around on the ground in agony while the other shook the ropes and riled up the audience.

*yes, he did later turn out to be a homosexual. How did you guess?

Jeff Hardy, Drug Dealer?

---------

from ThePilot.com:

http://thepilot.com/stories/20090911/news/local/20090911jeffhardy.html

Professional wrestler Jeff Hardy is in the Moore County jail Friday after being arrested on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steriods. Hardy, 32, of 265 Boys Camp Road, Cameron, was arrested after a search of his residence yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma
prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia, according to a press release.

A joint investigation conducted by officers with the Moore County Sheriff's Office narcotics and select enforcement units and theFayetteville Police Department led to the arrest.

Vicodin and anabolic steriods are Schedule III substances, while Soma is a non-controlled prescription pill.

Hardy and his brother, Matt, wrestling as the Hardy Boyz, were six-time World Wrestling Entertainment World Tag Team Champion.  Individually, Jeff Hardy held the WWE World Champion belt one time and the World Heavyweight Championship twice.

Hardy was charged with felony trafficking in opium, two counts of felony possession with intent to sell or deliver a Schedule III controlled substance, felony maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substance, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

His bail was set at $125,000 and paid by his brother, Matt Hardy.

Captain Lou Albano is now receiving Hospice Care.  The end is near, he has advanced cancer and is on a Morphine drip.

Most PEELers are too young to know about Captain Lou, but the face always needs a heel to make a match.  Captain Lou had a mission to destroy Champion Bruno Samartino and later, Champion Pedro Morales.  His over-the-top antics and actions antagonized fans and placed enough asses in seats to sell out MSG multiple times.

Much like the greats like Gorilla Monsoon, Moolah, Johnny Weaver and many more workers that I can't do justice in mentioning, I'll miss him and I hope he ends up in a better place.

Excerpted from PWInsider.com:

Captain Lou Passes Away

----

We have just received word that legendary WWF star Captain Lou Albano has passed away.  Lou was a true classic and someone who was instrumental in the WWF's rise from a regional company to a national promotion.  He will be missed.

We send our deepest sympathies out to his friends and family.

I met Albano along with Superfly Snuka at Wrestlemania 17 in the old WWF NYC Bar's party. Seemed like a really great and knowledgeable guy.

Ever work with him, Ralph?

Ever work with him, Ralph?

No, I've only met him once, at The Califlower Ear Reunion in Las Vegas in 2000.  I shook his hand and said "Hello" to him, but he was hanging with the old timers from the WWF and I was hanging with the old timers from the southern areas.

I haven't gone to another Reunion because I remember my first title was the Florida Tag Titles that the late Buzz Sawyer and I won from the New Zealand Sheepherders,  Butch and Luke.  They were two of the toughest SOB's I've ever fought in the ring.  Luke was in a wheelchair, being pushed around by his daughter and everytime somebody spoke to him, he'd ask, "Do I know you?"  He was completely demented, I'm sure a lot from the blows to the head that he suffered from years of working stiff.

Seeing the guy who just 20 years earlier made me almost quit wrestling because he was so stiff in the ring, being in that condition was very sad.  Tommy Rich made the comment that unless we died early enough, all of us would be like Luke. 

Being around broken people who were once were larger-than-life to me is something I can't handle.

WWE's Tribute To Captain Lou

@ Newhook:  I can't see how he actually wrestled recently considering that a charity card was held for him a few years ago for him to be able to pay some medical bills.

I'm sure he wan't trying to rib us; he was in pretty bad shape the last time I saw him.

I am 100% certian that Bushwacker Luke had a couple of matches in ROH over the course of 2008. He even cut a promo to come here and work a match for LCW, but it didn't pan out. He looks perfectly fine in the promo video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c-MZ3GH6I8&feature=player_embedded

That is unless there is another tag team that wrestled as the sheep hearders in the 80s from New Zealand, who were also named Luke and Butch.

Are you sure you're not thinking of Butch? I believe he had a neck injury that would have warrented being in a wheelchair at one point and retired but, both Butch and Luke wrestled in a battle royal at Wrestlemaina X7 in 2001, so he wouldn't have been in a wheelchair in 2000, and he has recovered to the point where he is mobile again.

A new Monday Nights War is coming.  Jan 4th 2010.  Hogan is appearing on TNA, along with perhaps Eric Bischoff.  RAW is doing a 3 hour show to compete, but will this spark a new Monday Night War?  I like the flash, but it's a question of substance.  Hogan can barely wrestle anymore due to injuries, so what is he going to do in TNA?  My only hope is that wrestling will start getting better.  WWE was only good when someone competed against them ie WCW.  

Ralph-- What's your take on this?

Ralph-- What's your take on this?

I haven't come this way often so I appologize to not responding.  As you may or may not know, Jim Cornette and I have never met each other in person but have talked to each other via phone many times over the years.  Granted, I haven't talked to him since the day that he called me to given me condolences for the death of Pete "Pistol Pez" Watley several years ago (Pete and I fought over the Florida TV title for most of 1980 - the man taught me more than anybody except Moolah).

So I have to echo what he said about TNA:  When you place Russo and Hogan back in charge, do you really expect anything different than what happened to kill WCW?  My favorite comment from the clip I placed on this site:  "Hogan is a household word.  Garbage is also, and both stink when they get old."

Cornette's differences with Russo are legendary and don't need to be repeated.

My opinion?  TNA won't be the repeat of WCW.  Jeff Jarrett has been moved to the sidelines and Dixie Carter has placed Vince Russo (remember "Beaver Cleavage"?) in charge.  If they can't get better ratings with the likes of Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Christian Cage (who has left to be buried in the WWE midcard) and the many other talented workers, it can be sure that a 60 year old Hulk Hogan and his total creative control of his character damned sure won't spike and maintain the ratings.

Hogan has contacted Scott "Pickled Liver" Hall and Kevin "Walking Accident" Nash and is already planning a program with them.  Place these guys who should either be in detox or a nursing home back on top and hilarity will ensue.  I read reports of the Flair/Hogan matches in Australia being underwhelming; that Hogan is so debilitated that Flair has actually had to help Hogan climb up to the second rope.

59 year old Ric Flair had to help Hogan with his signature moves is not a good sign that Hogan will be able to do any sort of match worthy of watching.

Also, the demographic that wrestling plays to isn't the one interested in Hogan-the-wrestler.  Maybe a few fans from his shitty Reality series will tune in for the first one or two episodes of TNA, but I don't see him being able to hold an audience other than the ones who enjoy watching a train wreck in slow motion happen.

Besides, that night I'm going to watch the guy who was my favorite wrestler of the 90's make his return - Bret Hart.  Bret's not going to wrestle - he's not in any condition to be in the ring.  A lot has been written about his short-term return and him "selling out", but he has relatives trying to make a break into the WWE, so I applaud him for swallowing his pride and making a short return if the payoff is to give his niece and nephew a chance of breaking in.  If he has "sold his soul" to somehow get his brother Owen into the Hall Of Fame, then Bret is a bigger man than most men will ever be.

Now for the real reason I came to post - another great has passed over to the other side.  Dr. Death Steve Williams has passed away from cancer.  I knew this guy personally and was one of the few guys I've stayed in constant contact with over the years.  The past few years have been via e-mail - he was always telling me that he couldn't pass until I regained my faith and became a Christian again.  He was one of the few that I didn't take that as an insult.

http://www.denverpost.com/obituaries/ci_14098230

The word is that there will be a private and public service.

Leon White (Vader) and I plan to attend the public service - we're waiting for Stan Hansen to call us and tell us when and where.

The last time I saw Doc was Thankgiving Night, 2007.  There had been a TV taping of one of the WWE shows that night so a few of the guys met up with the retired guys.  Most of the guys were people like Arn Anderson, Blackjack Lanza and others "behind the scenes" guys.  There was Vader, Stan Hansen, Doc and me at a bar, trying to "stay in touch" and reminence over the good and bad times.  Some drunkass punk form a Hispanic gang kept ragging Doc about his electronic voicebox, with other members of their little group walking around mimicking him.  Doc was cool about it, not wanting it to spoil our evening out.  He didn't get out a lot so it meant a lot to him that some of us were together, drinking beers and enjoying ourselves.

Doc, true to form, sent me an e-mail thanking me for showing up and that he was praying for me.

Damned.  That's three friends I've lost this year.  2009 can kiss my ass and go away - that's how much it has sucked.

Damned.  He was one of the greats.

http://www.pwinsider.com/article/44746/former-nwa-world-champion-jack-brisco-passes-away.html?p=1

We are very sad to report the passing of former NWA World Heavyweight
champion and WWE Hall of Famer Jack Brisco this morning at the age of 68.

While we are awaiting more details on Brisco's passing, he had quietly
undergone a triple heart bypass several weeks ago and had been in a rehab
center. He had been having health issues dating back to last year and had
canceled several appearances due to them.

An extremely great in-ring worker.  Brisco won the NWA World championship
from Harley Race on 7/20/73, holding it through December 1974. At the time,
holding that championship was a grueling job, traveling the world while
visiting all the different NWA member territories.

Brisco's series against Dory Funk Jr. is considered the template for great
in-ring wrestling rivalries. Brisco was originally scheduled to defeat Funk
for the NWA championship but an accident forced Funk into the hospital and
the match to be canceled. When Funk returned to the ring, he dropped the
belt to Harley Race, who later lost it to Brisco.

Brisco always held a multitude of Tag Team championships with his brother
Gerald.

Although he is most notably acknowledged as an NWA legend, Brisco is also
one of the most important names when it comes to the early days of WWF
history.  Brisco and his brother Gerry (aka Gerald Brisco the Mr. McMahon
stooge during the Attitude era) secretly sold their stock in Georgia
Championship Wrestling to McMahon, allowing McMahon to fold the company and
usurp it's TBS timeslot to create a monopoly on national television outlets.
That sale set into motion the series of events that followed over the next
several decades with McMahon falling out of favor with Ted Turner, Jim
Crockett buying the timeslot from the WWF, the end of Crockett Promotions,
Turner buying Crockett out and creating WCW, the Monday Night Wars, etc.

Brisco retired from the ring in the early 1980s, deciding he didn't want to
keep up with the horrendous travel the WWF schedule required at the time.
In his book, he noted he simply opted to go home to Florida, where he
remained, opening the Brisco Brothers' Body Shop.  Brisco released an
autobiography in 2004 and made convention appearances from time to time as
late as last year.

Brisco and his brother Gerry were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in
March 2008.

For more details on Brisco's incredible career, check out his biography at
www.jackbrisco.com.

Our deepest condolences to Brisco's family, friends and fans.

Shawn Michaels has retired tonight.  Yes, he does plan to hopefully wrestle at least twice a year, but his match with Undertaker was a great epic.

CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio-- for some reason I expected this to be a modern version of Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat.  I didn't see the match, I'll have to watch it later this week.

I like the Monday Night Wars as a concept, but it's nowhere near as good as the old WCW days.  TNA, is just WWE Jr, since most of their roster are former WWE guys, who are finally getting a push they deserve, but TNA needs to really shake things up.  I find myself still watching RAW over TNA.  I used to channel surf all the time from TNT to USA channels to watch both Nitro and RAW, I'm barely doing that now.

I saw the royal rumble match.  Pretty entertaining.  I liked seeing Booker T and Diesel make appearances, but disappointed that they were eliminated so quickly.  Alberto Del Rio winning is a surprise, guess WWE is finally trying to push younger guys.

BTW, Jon Morrison needs to be world champion just for this

no no
The rules of the rumble clearly state that if two feet make contact with any surface outside of the ring the wrestler is eliminated, it does not just specify the floor between the guardrail and the ring".

The referee has to be strong and not make a mockery of the sport. I would have stood up for the rules and told John Morrison to hit the showers.
