Minnesota Purple Rage

Minnesota Purple Rage (5/11)



  1. Saw him wrestle twice in dark matches in 2001, and I still believe to this day that the WWE really dropped the ball with Steve Bradley.
  2. Matthew Fox, who pretty much vanished into thin air back in 2015, is returning to showbiz by fronting a "limited event" series for Peacock ... Matthew Fox Joins Joanna Froggatt In ‘Last Light’ Peacock Limited Series – Deadline
  3. Those having their HBO Max account terminated thru Amazon Channels can resubscribe at $7.49/month for up to six months, according to Deadline. New subscribers also eligible for rate discount, which is available thru Sept. 26. Per Deadline, HBO Max remains available on Fire TV. Article also quotes "sources" as saying HBO Max may lose five million subscribers because of this.
  4. Watched a YT video of the Becky-Bianca interaction. Becky looked like she mugged a Times Square Elmo on her walk to MSG and took his costume. Not a good look to cut the Zelina segment, especially given her connection to NYC and 9/11. Didn't watch the show, but you could have easily cut five minutes out of one of the longer matches or segments to make room for her in some manner.
  5. Ex-WWE Star Al Snow Heroically Saves Child From Ocean Riptide (tmz.com)
  6. Didn't know the Unknown Comic wrestled on the side.
  7. Fun show and well worth the $50. Watching the crowd react positively to each and every wrestler who appeared on screen was worth the money. If there are any nitpicks ... -- I'd like to see AEW experiment with picture-in-picture during future Casino Battle Royals, particularly when wrestlers begin entering per "deck." I don't know every wrestler's entrance music, and it's hard to hear the ring announcer at times, so perhaps have the inset of a wrestler entering while maintaining a larger picture of the in-ring action can help the viewer identify who is who. -- Maybe I'm being a bit prudish, but I sometimes get the feeling that the announce team chooses to swear because they just learned the words and want to say them as much as possible to seem cool. We get it -- you're angry and upset. But months upon months of dropping "S" bombs while announcing with Callis gets extremely tiring. -- Got a laugh out of JR mentioning how he was "afraid to chew" while having breakfast with Minoru Suzuki. Cringed when the first thing out of JR's mouth regarding Leyla Hirsch is that she's an awesome softball player (she's Lady Sid!). -- It's been nearly a year since the Shida match on Dynamite, and AEW still has no clue what to do with Abadon. She sounded extremely over when she was introduced, and I liked the 80s-esque mohawk. But she did little of note outside of saying "Boo" to Shida and Sakura and getting cheap heat with the Skye Blue elimination.
  8. From November 2000 ... an eight-man tag featuring Daniel Bryan, Spanky, Lance Cade and Shooter Shultz in Power Pro Wrestling ... From Memphis Championship Wrestling -- Bryan and Spanky vs. Seven (Kevin Thorn) and Thrash (Headbanger Thrasher, who wrestles in an overcoat for some reason) ... And from 2001 Puerto Rico, Los Boricuas take on Headbanger Mosh and Pete Gas. It's Puerto Rico, so expect weapons, liberal interference, and a referee wearing jorts. Mosh and Pete Gas is a team I would have created in an e-fed back in the day, just because I had a tag team hole to fill.
  9. Longtime Southeast indy wrestler and trainer Steve "The Brawler" Lawler (Steve Kyle) passed away from COVID-19 complications last week at the age of 56. Southern wrestler Steve 'The Brawler' Lawler dies of COVID - Slam Wrestling Steve had a hand in training Buff Bagwell and Disco Inferno, among others. Recall his name popping up a bit on "Pro Wrestling This Week" whenever they showed indie matches from Georgia.
  10. Movie theaters showing All Out ... AEW All Out Theatres (joehandpromotions.com)
  11. SPENCER Kristen Stewart is Princess Diana in this film, expected to be released later this year.
  12. Tony Mendez ... David Letterman's longtime cue card guy, passed away July 29 at age 76. His career came to an abrupt end shortly before Dave's retirement when he got into an altercation with a writer. Also handled cue cards at SNL for years and was a Broadway dancer for a time.
  13. Don Everly of the Everly Brothers has passed on at age 84 ...
  14. Well, at least he kept Bob Barker's legacy of lawsuits going on TPIR. Mistake that would only make me seethe: She's not going to the Showcase Showdown, Mike. She just won the Showcase Showdown; she's going to the Showcase.
