  1. Yea read it right after it came out. Ok book but nothing really new in it.
  2. MLW to me is what ECW was before it hit PPV. Airs on an obscure sports network,BeIN Sports instead of Sunshine Network,the roster changes often and it is a fun hour of wrestling most weeks.
  3. was a fun show. Seeing Holiday in Natchez MS in 2 weeks. Think he is facing local fave and AEW Dark talent Rey Fury.
  4. Seems CWF Atlanta & CWF Arizona are dead. They are gonna stick with just Hollywood and Memphis for a bit. I gotta catch up. Van Vicious is the current SWA jr heavyweight champ,SWA championship wrestling on FITE.
  5. Still shocked Impact didn't air the fan biting Cardona. As you can see in my footage of it they had their cameras right there filming. Oh well just happy I had my camera on and caught that moment. Cause I have seen some wild things at shows. See a elderly lady attack a heel stable with her walker. Seen a very drunk redneck take out his false teeth and challenge a heel to a fight "Outside if ya aint a yella chicken". But I had until Sunday night never seen a fan bit a wrestler.
  6. Was told that Saturday for the No Surrender PPV there was around 500 people there. And Sunday for the Impact Tv tapings it was between 300 and 350. Kaleb Konnely has been working a bunch lately for my local indie,BIW,and he told a few people that Impact was expecting a bigger turnout. But they people in charge of Impact didn't realize they booked both shows on the first weekend of Mardi Gras. Also heard that Impact is planning on coming back to Westwego. I do know that after they saw the attendence on Saturday entire rows of chairs were removed for Sunday. And they draped off bunches of the bleacher sections. For example the buddy that drove me to the show had bought 3rd row seats on the floor. There was no 3rd row,except on the two sides of the entrance ramp. He was told to go sit in any empty seat. So he spotted 4 seats front row that were empty. Him and the owner of BIW and his wife ,who had gotten bleacher seats,moved to the front row. They asked if I wanted the other seat. But I had great seats 2nd row by the ramp and didn't want to leave my father by himself over there.
  7. During the main event DOering did a move to the floor. Hit his head hard and they ended up bringing some EMTs over to check on him. He finally got up after the match and watched to the back.
  8. Just got home from these tapings. No clue if the cameras caught this but after Cardona's match he was heading to the back went to hug a little girl in the front row by the ramp and she BIT HIM!!
  9. Well that sucks. One of the reasons I got tickets to this weekends Impact tapings was to see Alexander.... Maybe they will make up for it by booking Funaki.
  10. I was just happy to see Gordy and Williams again. Had seen both a few times as a kid when UWF came to the area. Plus by the main event dad had a few beer in him and I was busy getting the keys and letting him know I would drive us home. Before the show started across the arena for us was a place set up for a bunch of fans from a local assisted living place. Saw Sting and a few of the other faces come out and talk to the people there. But the one that stood out was Ron Simmons he was there from whenever they opened the doors until a few minutes before the dark match started. I need to dig it out and scan it but got a blurry picture of Ron giving a little person a piggy back ride.
  11. I know I show up during the Sting/Cactus jack match. 5th row right next to the entrance ramp. Going to the show was a last minute gift from my parents before I shipped out for Army BCT.
  12. Last year my local indie was trying to find wooden tables for a tables match. They are hard to find and when you do they are 30 to 40 bucks each. Much easier to find and cheaper to use a couple of hollowcore doors across two chairs. Plus the doors will normally break. Seen many a table not want to break.
  13. Well the Battlezone match I mentioned got canceled. Seems Gresham and the promoter couldn't agree on something.
  14. I know not many people get the channel,but I've watched MLW most of the time on BeIN Sports. Was surprised when I learned we got it. Oddly noticed that the Youtube shows sometimes have different things censored. Or like the last Battle Riot the BeIN Sports airing cut close to 20 minutes out of the match,where as Youtube aired the entire thing.
  15. That is how it was for me. Until late 1990 there was no cable in my area. But with a roof top antenna and then rabbit ears also on the tv in my room I could watch on Saturday. All 3 WWF syndicated shows,with Spotlight for some reason airing two times. WCW worldwide Mid South/UWF Glow Some show from Florida Memphis and for about 4 months teh revived Gulf Coast Championship Wrestling,this is when Uncle Elmer was running it,had a tv show. Back then Mid South/UWF was can't miss. And the rest I would try to see,even usually watching both airings of Spotlight. And most of this all aired on one channel. But we were also in a area where you could get 12 or 13 channels with an antenna. When most of this was airing I was 10. Mid south/UWF was all the kids favorite. WCW and Memphis were next in popularity. Then Florida. And WWF was thought of as "that fake shit from up north". But still most of us kids watched all of it. Somewhere's in a box I still got one or two betamax tapes with 2 hours of UWF and Memphis on them. They were from Saturdays I wasn't home. And by then since we got a VHS vcr in 83 the old Betamax dad bought in the late 70s got moved to my room.
  16. Ok so wondering does this mean the Jonathan Gresham vs Frankie Thomas match next month at Battlezone in Raleigh MS since that is for the World title it might air on the weekly ROH tv show? IF so that is the oddest thing to happen in MS indie wrestling since the Heroes of Wrestling PPV in Bay St Louis.
  17. Learned earlier that Pete Gas has a book out...and ordered a copy. Has to be better than Chyna and Lance Von Erichs' books.
  18. 2 days ago we were hitting 80 with 95% humidity. Yesterday and today the high is 50 and the low in 28. No wonder I keep a constant cold from December until Feb.
  19. Gonna divide it up to indies and other. Indies-Jess E Dalton vs Ashton Spears Battlezone in Columbia MS. Jess E is so out of shape he was sucking wind from just walking to the ring. Less than 2 minutes into the match he told Ashton loudly "GO HOME I CANT BREATHE!" and the match went on another 10 minutes. Other-I remember a really bad 2 cool vs some no names match from a Raw I hit up a long time ago.
  20. Tie Cactus Jack vs Sting Beach Blast 92-Best graduation gift I got was tickets to this PPV Steve Anthony vs Apoc for the BIW Southern heavyweight title-Happened this year in January,ended an almost 3 year long feud. IF Apoc lost he had to retire from BIW,if Steve lost he lost his title and had to get his head shaved. The Pop when APOC won was so loud!
  21. So after 15 or so years of hearing people call it crap I read my hardcover of Trouble. Was wanting something different to read today since it was high 70s and I was wanting to sit on the pier and read some new to me comics. Good story,even if you cut out the Spidey connection. And really good art. Was worth the 6 or so bucks I paid for it.
  22. Months ago got for a buck or 2 each a pile of the post Fox X-men Movie X-men tpbs. Finally read two over the last week and a half. X-men The Movie Prequel Wolverine #1-This $4.95 priced comic is maybe 48 pages of average art and a ok story. Leads up to where we see Logan in the first film. X-men the Movie Adaptation and other stories-This is a 15.95 tpb,glad I dropped 2 bucks for it. Has the movie adaptation,which is decent. Then 3 or 4 classic stories,mostly reprinted from Uncanny X-men. One is the issue where Magneto has the X-men all trapped and the robot named nanny,but this reprint isnt from the issue of Uncanny nope it is from the reprint in Classic X-men. Another of the reprinted stories is the issue of uncanny when Rogue joins the team. Not a bad trade but I am glad I got it cheap.
  23. Figured I might be the only one to buy Lance Von Erich's book "Lance by Chance". Read a bit of it during lunch today. Wondering how much bullshit Lance is feeding the reader about his early days in WCCW and Portland.
