The Wrestling Thread~

A few years ago Colt Cabana, the host of "the Art of Wrestling" podcast, had an awesome show with his guest CM Punk on why he left the WWE.

Since that time they were in a legal battle against the WWE's doctor. Cabana and Punk won.

Now Cabana is suing Punk.

What's interesting for Kings fans is the legal firm that represented Cabana and Punk was Loeb & Loeb.

Loeb & Loeb represented the Maloofs during the arena saga.

Loeb & Loeb also worked for Chris Hansen.

Cabana is suing punk? yeesh.

after reading the deets... good lord. Half a mil in legal expenses and they won? Feels like they should get relief from the party that sued them but what do I know.

Sure makes my divorce look cheap :D
 
Damn. RIP.

Oddly, I was just watching a late 00's video of him the other day because my curiosity had gotten the better of me wondering whether he had ever tagged with Greg Valentine as "The Hammer and The Anvil".

Only in the indies.

Late last week I was watching some old Coliseum Home Videos recently released on the Network and watched some Hart Foundation matches.

If you want to watch an odd angle from an independent promotion then look up Jim Neidhart versus Virgil in the NWC.

Full respect to the deceased but I don't think I could stomach that. Rather watch early Hart Foundation stuff before they went to the black and pink. Maybe those early Bulldog matches.

Saw a picture that was quite the bummer - all of the New Hart Foundation members other than Brett are now deceased. While Anvil was 63 and Brett is 61, Owen, Pillman and Bulldog would all be 55 or under.

The angle was very racist and yet never talked about.

I saw the same picture. Those were different times in pro wrestling with the travel and life style than what it is today. So many have passed on at such an early age. If this was going on with NBA, NFL or MLB this would make major headlines. Since it's WWF (WWE today), it goes unnoticed for the most part.
 
Cancelled my subscription after the show tonight. I'm done until Roman's out of the title picture for awhile.

As for the good? I'm loving how good Rousey is at this wrestling thing. She's taken to it like a fish to water.

Also loved the fans crapping all over Charlotte when Becky took her out.

Eh, I guess... He was the Least Objectionable Alternative, IMO. It's not like, if Roman weren't around, that they were going to put the belt on Seth, or Owens, or Elias, or even Finn. If it wasn't him, they were either going to keep the belt on Lesnar, or give it to Strowman. Personally, I prefer Reigns to either of those two dopes, low bar though that may be.
 
I like Strowman but it's lame to go from one big beast to another. Don't love Roman but he can work a match with the right talent.

I thought the ppv was too long, the best potential matches had screwy finishes and we didn't need effectively 3 squashes if you count Rousey. And frankly I am not sure about her at the top, sure she has worked 2 decent matches with a lot of help and has legit toughwoman cred but that pins them into a corner with booking.

That said, they finally got rid of Brock and seemed to set up a handful of compelling stories. Not sure about whatever Orton is supposed to be doing tho. Almost 10 year old in house so my sub going nowhere.
