Didn't WCW announce Harlem Heat as being form "across 110th Street"?

AFAIK it was from 110th Street. I doubt they came straight out of the Anthony Quinn and Yaphet Kotto blaxploitation film. Unless Turner bought the rights for it.

I need to look up where the Gang was from before he was billed as being from Halsted Street in Chicago. Guessing Crusher Broomfield was from somewhere does south. 

lmao Halsted is nice as hell. Well, now it is. I have no idea about back then.

If they came out to Bobby Womack, it would be the greatest entrance ever!

Fuck. Now that I think about it...Jackie Brown came out during the height of Harlem Heat/the beginning of Booker's push. The Harlem Heat theme was very recognizable by then, but if they switched it for the Bobby Womack song, that would have been the best.

Best we'd have gotten is Ersatz Bobby Womack composed by Jimmy Hart.

Pam Grier driving away from Robert Forster while I yell GO AFTER HER, YOU FOOL is a great use of that song. Second greatest would be Stevie Ray shit-talking on his way to the ring while that song plays.

I think WWE really missed the boat with giving Xavier Woods some shine as a singles while Kofi is out. I thought it would have been cool to have Lashley vs Xavier at Mania as a replacement for Bray. It's strange that he hasn't had a singles push like Big E and Kofi. It's like WWE doesn't know what to do with him if he isn't with the other New Day. I think he would have really impressed if he got some good singles matches without the other New Day around. I know he was King of the Ring but he got hurt not long after. Now I'm hearing they're keeping him cold till Big E and Kofi returns. That would be great news if Big E returns,  obviously only if he is physically able to.

That's the next 'lifetime achievement award' run. He's only 36 though. Could still be working in 5+ years and win a world title.

The Parts Funknown guys did a really nice fantasy booking for Woods being the one to dethrone Reigns actually...

This is where I miss wrestling hotlines.

Is CM Punk replacing Tucker Carlson on Fox News? What role did Cody Rhodes' loss at WrestleMania 39 have in the Dominion settlement? For all the news and more, call 1-900-909-9900. Kids, get your parents permission before calling.

What former world champion was backstage at Raw tonight?

This week's Between the Sheets episode introduced us to a terrifying future where Bix was able to create an AI Murray Hodgson voice (which was in response to the guest talking about the idea of making a better AI Mean Gene voice)

Soon enough Bix and Kris will use AI to make 7 hour long podcasts instead of talking.

On a serious note: My bigger question is how did he get backstage in the first place? Those folks are at the building all damn day before the show. Did they just notice a dude with tattoos who looks remarkably just like Phil Brooks was walking backstage? That's kinda bizarre.

What WWE Superstar snuck Phil Brooks backstage? Was he in a laundry basket? Someone's trunk? Call the hot line

Now I gotta go find Prichard doing Jim Cornette from the Royal Rumble 1998 STW episode where he does Jim's full explanation of why Chainsaw Charlie should come out of a box by giving several, specific different examples of wrestlers coming out of boxes.

Everyone comes out of a box at some point, Jim.

Is there any reason Bill Watts never signed Randy Savage in the years before his WWF debut? Given he worked in Memphis wouldn't he have had an in when Bill Dundee was booking?

Given what happened between Savage and Dundee, lol that's probably why.
