X-PAC TEARS HIS ASS - LITERALLY - AFTER MISSED BRONCO BUSTER
- Former DX and nWo member Sean 'X-Pac' Waltman had a rather unfortunate
incident after performing - and failing - a Bronco Buster resulting in
tearing up his, well, ass. X-Pac was participating in a show during the
weekend when he tried his usual move, however the other person didn't feel
like he wanted to get up close and personal with Pac's crotch so he moved
away, with X-Pac crashing ass-first in the turnbuckle. While he finished
the match, TMZ reports that X-Pac went to the hospital after he noticed
blood coming out from his anus when he went back to his hotel room.
Doctors quickly diagnosed him with a torn anus - no joke - and underwent
surgery to repair the problem. X-Pac is being released from hospital
today, and will probably be walking a little bit funny too!


 ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER TO INDUCT BRUNO SAMMARTINO IN WWE HALL OF FAME
- Former California Governor and big wrestling fan Arnold Schwarzenegger
will be inducting his friend Bruno Sammartino into the WWE Hall of Fame on
April 6
 in Madison Square Garden on the eve of WrestleMania. "Honored to
be inducting my friend The Living Legend @SammartinoBruno into the @WWE
Hall of Fame April 6 @TheGarden," wrote the Terminator star on Twitter.
Earlier this month, Schwarzenegger inducted Sammartino into the
International Sports Hall of Fame at the 2013 Arnold Classic Sports
Festival in Columbus, Ohio. Sammartino and Schwarzenegger are longtime
friends and Arnold appeared on WWE television in the past to participate
in a couple of angles.


CHYNA SAYS SHE'S ON GOOD TERMS WITH WWE
- Former WWE Women's and Intercontinental champion Chyna wrote on Twitter
that she is on good terms with her former employee, WWE, and has recently
spoken to Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. "I spoke to @VinceMcMahon and a
#WWEHOF MIGHT be in the near future," she wrote. The women formerly known
as the 9th wonder of the world is now in Japan for her a new chapter in
her life - teaching English classes to Japanese students. Yes, you heard
that correctly. WWE completely disassociated itself from Chyna - real name
Joanie Laurer - due to her involvement with the adult industry. She filmed
a bunch of movies, including her last one which comes out online tomorrow.
Vivid Entertainment issued a press release announcing the the availability
of ³She-Hulk XXX: An Axel Braun Parody² starring Chyna. "Of all of the
great female comic characters, She-Hulk is the one that I wanted most to
play in a parody," said Chyna. "This is the role I was destined for
because I can identify with both her strength and her vulnerability." This
will be - at least for now - her last involvement in adult movies and it
will take a while for her to be accepted back within the WWE family due to
the very PG TV rating.

Sting and Ultimate Warrior Debut in Memphis

from the early 80s in Memphis we get to see the early days of Sting and Ultimate Warrior as they debut as  "The Freedom Fighters".  Most interesting to hear them go by their real names of Steve Borden and Jim Hellwig.   They are very raw and stiff but just the look could get them over.

Paul Bearer 1955-2013



I was sad to check my facebook this morning and see that William "Bill" Moody a.k.a Paul Bearer had died at the terribly young age of 58.   I did enjoy watching him as both Percival Pringle and Paul Bearer.  When he joined the Undertaker he really helped get 'Taker over with his dead man gimmick and as he always did...he was good at what he did and I send prayers to all of his family and friends that are mourning his passing.

Enjoy some of the moments that made Paul Bearer famous
