    The Warrior's speeches and all are on youtube. Hell Wrestlelama is a bit late to this as the SocialInjusticeWarrior did the very same video in a way a month or two ago. Asking why the WWE would have an award honoring the Warrior given his terrible statements and beliefs. In his words , your removing a Moolah trophy due to her terrible past , yet here you are keeping the Warrior's.

    Meh.WWE pulled it because stickers 'suggested' they pull it

    Fact of the matter is no one cares about Warriors statements.At least not enough to start a social media firestorm about it.

    The Moolah decision,however,came at a time were people where already sensitive about people who aduse their power to commit sexual assault thanks to the Metoo movement.So there was a lot more pressure.

    A couple years ago in an older Cornette shoot he discussed Homicide and how Dixie liked him. She even wanted him to be TNA World Champion at one point. But he was limited as it was brought up. He couldn't speak English and couldn't cut a promo. Also he needed good workers to help him in ring. So they all backstage talked her outta that idea.

    not surprising there's some misinformation in there considering corny is the source. 1st homicide speaks english, he has a thick new york/puerto rican accent but it's english he speaks, see his shoot interviews for proof. 2nd this makes it sound like he needs to be carried or isn't a good worker. injuries and years of wear and tear have slowed him down but c'mon, RoH wouldn't put the title on a guy that couldn't work or needed to be carried. homicide's body of work in RoH alone kills slapnuts entire career, so yeah i think he was good enough in the ring.
    i believe homicide was the RoH champion while corny was there.

    That actually makes a little more sense.

    I recall TnA back in the day really pushing Hernandez. I'm not sure he was ready to be THE guy... but clearly looked like at one point they wanted him to be a main eventer. But Homicide always seemed like a mid-carder to me. Not that I disliked his worked, but they never booked him like he was a top guy, to my recollection.

    Wasn't HOmicidee the guy that was supposed to win that cage match by climbing out of that ridiculous cage with the dome in it, but he couldn't climb out of it?

    Here is something unique and lost to history. Also a weird WHAT IF......the XWF from 2001. The company that Hogan and Jimmy Hart created. This one actually has a lot of weird ideas and only time you'd see Jerry Lawler and Tony Shiavone call a match together !





    Sadly they never could get this on TV.

    Any CBR members going to the Cow Palace Show tomorrow?
    Kenny vs Cody!

    I would love to make it if the Bay City wasn’t so many thousands of miles away.

    I did see a WWF show there long long ago, with Warrior, Hart Foundation etc. ...maybe ‘89 (Will Clark played for the Giants, Matt Williams was crushing homers and they still played in windy Candlestick - i.e. I also took in a giants series) I don’t remember exactly as I was a wee little lad but the building felt like a piece of wrestling history even back then, big and old and really perfect for sweaty giants beating on one another.

    I have been checking out some of Matt Riddle’s matches lately, that Bro can go!
    I hadn’t seen him since his MMA days but he has really taken to the squared circle and has a terrific style, can really work. And what a freak athlete. I am thinking his drug of choice is much more beneficial to a long lasting career than what’s taken down many of the stars from the 80s and 90s.

    AXS is going live on this one, correct? With JR and Barnett?
    I prefer the Don Callis calls on NJPW world, but if AXS is offering it for free then good ol’ JR will do just fine.

    Bay Area sensation Jeff Cobb gets a shot at Goto on the undercard, that should be a lot of hard hitting fun.

    Juice Robinson getting a title shot, that kid is going to break through big time soon.

    Plus Sabre, Okada, Naito, Young Bucks all on the show - and here in the states which is very cool. I hope casual fans that normally wouldn’t tune in to New Japan check it out. Healthy competition makes the overall business/sport better.

    just so long as JR is on his game.

    the last few G1 specials really didn't do JR any favors. i still love the guy. he just wasn't on top of things as he should have been.

    Yep, he hasn’t really got a full grasp of the roster, longstanding storylines or how they connect and get over yet.
    That is understandable since he and Josh basically do voice over work after the fact from a studio and aren’t really doing it full time, or with the crowd heat behind them.
    I heard he was going to be there early and spend time with the guys in person for a few days before the show to help him get better immersed in things which should help his calls.

    I am not trying to take anything away from JR as I believe his run in the attitude era is as strong and good as it gets. He is on the Mt Rushmore wrassling announce team IMO.

    But yes, his New Japan work could use some improvement. I have a feeling he is going to do good, committed work tomorrow night and that having Kenny and Cody in the main will lend itself to his strengths.

    I was recently alerted to the fact that Schiavone is doing MLW.
    Tony and JR still doing their thing, it’s like I never grew up....which isn’t all that inaccurate.

    So in his podcast , Steve Austin said that in WCW he did refuse to put someone over and it was Erik Watts back in 1991/1992.


    - Austin claims he had been on the road and had worked some great barn burner matches against Steamboat and Sting during this time. He had worked some nice broadway matches against them as well. So one day behind the scenes Grizzly Smith who worked backstage for the company came to him and said , we want you to put over Erik Watts.


    - Steve says he was like , No ...I don't think so Grizzly. Which surprised Grizzly who was like why not ? Austin explained , I just came off some great matches against Sting and Steamboat. I looked really good in those and now you want me to put over Erik Watts who has only been in business 6 months ? No sorry I can't do that. Austin explained that at times you have to know your business , your money and how to stand up for yourself or you'll get done this way.


    - So in the end he got told to go speak to Dusty a couple days later who questioned Austin on it. Dusty told him he nearly got himself fired for refusing to put over Erik Watts. But as Steve claimed , well its how I feel and all. But he wasn't fired and things went on.
