Matt Hardy comments on his knee Injury

matthardy.jpegMatt Hardy commented recently on MySpace about his knee injury:

I fortunately retained the ECW Championship in a hard-hitting, fantastic match against the veteran Irishman. Unfortunately, something none of you at home witnessed-because it happened during a commercial break period-was me painfully hyper-extending my surgically repaired left knee. I continued that match without acknowledging it to anyone but knew I had hurt it. After the match, I was examined and diagnosed with a slightly torn PCL and stretched ligaments in the back of my knee. I could finished the tour out, but had to do some major treatment, wrapping and bracing of my knee. And by the way, I thought going into this day I had tomorrow off because it was a Smackdown only taping. I find out at the end of the night I’m needed tomorrow for both episodes of Smackdown. I guess that’s what you get for being a WORKHORSE, HA! Now I already have the stress of an extremely hard trip plus a knee injury. Welcome to the wrestling business boys and girls. I felt much better when I got back to the hotel, my Smackdown crew got in, and the ECW, Raw, and Smackdown crews hit the hotel bar. I think the entire WWE drank every ounce of alcohol and liquor in Manchester that night! LOL!

Day 6

Manchester, England – I wake up and my knee feels absolutely horrible. I can barely walk. It’s one of those moments when I ask myself how am I gonna do this.. How am I gonna perform tonight. After soaking and icing and treating and wrapping and bracing my knee thoroughly, somehow I do. I wrestled Shelton Benjamin in a Champion versus Champion match and came out victorious. I thought it was a helluva match as well. In case you’re wondering, I was in excruciating pain the whole time. I also wrestled another tag match that will be featured on this week’s Smackdown. I also wanna tell everyone that I was extremely proud of Jeff on this day as he had possible his best TV day performance EVER. That night, a little social time was had-but I actually got a good night’s sleep. I had to-my knee and my performances for the week were depending on it.

ROH Driven PPV Preview

rohbelt.jpgRing of Honor returns to PPV this Friday night, November 14th featuring the premiere of ROH “Driven” on iN DEMAND, The DISH Network and TVN cable systems.

The first reviews for this show are in.

Richard Gray of www.wrestlingnewsword.com says “Ring Of Honor Driven is yet another outstanding effort from the company and its workers. ROH offers so much more bang for your buck than WWE or TNA pay-per-views that buying them should be a no-brainer. The final two matches of the show are two of the best matches that you will see on pay-per-view this year.”

Sean Radican of www.pwtorch.com writes “I highly recommend this show. The crowd is red hot from start to finish. The last two matches pack a heck of a one two punch. The Steen & Generico-Black & Jacobs match is a sure-fire top contender for MOTY. In fact, it’s one of the most emotion packed matches I’ve seen in ROH or any company in 2008.”

Jake the Snake posts on Monday’s RAW

jakesnake.jpegWrestling Legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has been posting his reviews on WWE RAW on his MySpace account. After a small break, Jake is back and lucky us! Here’s an excerpt from his review of this Monday’s RAW, on the CM versus Randy Orton match.

CM vs Randy Orton

Before I get to this last match, I just want to know who the agent was previously employed that got fired after the Regal/Hardy abortion? DAMN! Sorry Ron, or Mr. Simmons, but now I know where you got your inspiration, because DAMN says it all.

Okay, I’m out of the bathroom, now let’s go for this last one.

Lumberjack rules. Lumberjack match is set up due to the need to keep normally the heel, in the ring to face his just rewards. Yes, Randy did a horrible thing to CM. But in this instance they did it to plant seeds for future confrontations, angles and a way out of this match. Normally what would happen as the heel would try to pull a Cody Rhodes and his chickenshit and run. And heels being heels would also try to obtain advantage over babyface by getting outside help. This started differently.

Orton fires CM out and when we all thought CM would be jumped by heels, he escaped and got back into the ring. AH HA!! A babyface is being created. Again creating impossible odds and having him survive. Good job, Randy, good idea. That smells of Steamboat or your Father. Or you’re learning. From there, the babyfaces’s screw it up. As you take your first trip out, and cheap shot Jamie Noble (which is impossible to do because no one cares). Hell, all of America hates Jamie Noble. You’re not a big man Jamie, nor do you have a great repertoire. What you do have more than likely is a 40×70 singlewide. And the tires are better on it, than on your car … Oops! Meant truck.

But for babyfaces to attack Orton and get all the cheap shots before the heels initiate, is just stupid. Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? I know who the man was, Randy, tag, you’re it. Watched you call the match and was impressed. Folks that is what a great worker does. Your Father and your Grandfather could have a great match with a
broom. Great workers have great matches even with decks stacked against them. Many can do a thousand moves but few in the right order. Watch your talking in the ring, though. But maybe that has to do with the inability to listen by others. Randy you sold perfectly and it was different. Seems you have finally found a style your comfortable with. Just hope that you have the same tenacity as stick to what you want to do. I was very impressed. It was a pretty damned good match and what was best about it, was the moves and countermoves and the pulling out the fire just in time, life saving counters. Randy, blocking his kick, okay, I get that. Simply because I was in the ring (not working with ) Kevin VonErich. and I don’t give a shit what kind of sauce or spices you put on a foot, they still don’t taste good. Seen you get one earlier but still you’re not a pretty boy.

I truly hope what I saw tonight wasn’t a freak. What I feel has happened in the past, you were being asked to follow someone else’s lead. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. At least they got the finish almost right, and Regal, you should kiss someone’s ass for this, because you distracting CM reduced the garbage I had seen before. Good finish, and a pretty darned good wrestling match. I’m sure the ref got his ass chewed, and he should have, and Batista too, because if the ref is in the way when its time for your thing, take that SOB out too. Orton going for kick and having to pause was wrong. And Randy, it wasn’t Batista’s fault, and it wasn’t the ref’s fault. If they aren’t there when they should be then you simply kick the SOB in the head again. Because that one wrong move took 50% of the hard work and toss it in the trash can. It’s that simple folks, it’s the little things. And the little holes that burst the dam.

It’s true the WWE these days–they end the show with 20 guys doing their highspots. Can I ask you a question? Whatever happened to anticipation? Whatever happened to mystery? And whatever happened to the unknown? And the biggest of all, and I know you guys don’t believe in it, whatever happened to leaving heat on a heel? You want people to buy tickets? Then create something that people want and make them pay for it on the PPV. But you guys create 10 minutes of heat in a show, and 30 minutes of killing it. If you tried this, maybe you wouldn’t need this shove it down your throat til you buy it, method.

Entice, tease, encourage and anticipate on your TV shows then satisfy on your PPV’s. Why in the hell should anyone buy a PPV? When you kick everything in the nuts and piss on it before you ever get there.

Good to talk to you folks again.
Jake

JR weighs in heavy on Brock Lesner

200px-jim_ross_no_mercy_2007.jpgJR came out strong last Sunday to speak on some MMA fan’s reaction to Brock Lesner win over Randy Couture. Here’s some excerpts:

Former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar won the UFC Heavyweight Title Saturday night in Las Vegas with a 2nd round TKO over UFC legend Randy Couture. Perhaps now MMA purists will acknowledge Lesnar’s athletic abilities and not hold his tenure in the entertainment world of the WWE against him. But somehow I doubt it….at least not for now.

The pro wrestling bias has never been more prominently displayed than by what I perceive to be a vocal minority of MMA fans against Lesnar simply because he signed with the WWE after an outstanding amateur wrestling career that was topped off by winning a NCAA Heavyweight Title in 2000 after finishing 2nd in the NCAA’s in 1999 while wrestling for the University of Minnesota.

When the NFL did not work out, Brock turned back to his long time roots and parlayed his grappling skills and amazing athletic gifts by signing with the UFC. Lesnar’s name identity that he developed globally with the WWE made Brock marketable from day one but it also came with a pre-conditioned identity. Lesnar was a former pro wrestler and that stigma made the South Dakota farm boy a marked man from day one by many UFC fans.

UFC promoters discovered what many successful pro wrestling promoters had known for years and that is their fan base would pay big money to see someone get their ass beat if that individual represented what the majority of the fan base disliked which could come in a variety of incarnations. In the annals of pro wrestling, that could mean an evil “German”, a diabolical “Japanese”, a menacing “Masked Man”, or a flamboyant “Loud Mouth” among many personas.

Lesnar was none of these but he did have the “distasteful” pro wrestling stigma attached to him that will be a part of his UFC bio until the day he retires. Never mind that the guy was a superb amateur wrestler long before his short albeit successful stint in the WWE. “Dammit the guy was one of those pro ‘rasslers and those guys have no business in any form of MMA.” Wrong.

Simply being billed as a former WWE Champion was enough to make some MMA fans “hate” the 6’3″-275 pounder from day one. By the boos I heard Saturday night on PPV, many UFC hardcore’s still despise Lesnar and perhaps even more so now that Lesnar is “their” heavyweight champion and more specifically because Brock defeated “Captain America”, the beloved, and deservedly respected, Randy Couture in such a dominating, no questions asked fashion. BTW Couture is a class act and a credit to the UFC. Hopefully, Couture will go down in weight and continue to fight as one can’t help but love his passion and warrior spirit.

However, now the UFC can promote Lesnar vs. virtually any qualified, MMA born and bred heavyweight they choose and the fans will be on board in the hopes of seeing Brock humbled and, more pointedly, beaten to a pulp.

The same pro wrestling methodology that has been around for decades is now exactly what MMA hardcore fans are buying into.

Remember, eat more BBQ.

WWE congratulates Brock Lesner and questions UFC PPV quality

brock1.jpegThe question as to how WWE would capitalize on former WWE World Heavyweight Chamion Bock Lesner’s blazing rush up the ranks to claim the UFC Heavyweight title has been answered today. WWE congratulated Brock on his upset victory over Randy Couture, made sure to pump Brock’s professional wrestling history and implied that Brock’s journey to the WWE title was longer and harder fought than his journey to sieze the UFC championship. WWE pointed out in their news release that the UFC has a gap in talent beyond their main eventers. WWE also pointed out that UFC matches can all end in one round, implying that the value of their PPVs, as measured by match times, is up to random fortune. WWE viewers will draw from that analysis a comparison to WWE PPVs, where the viewer is guarenteed full value for their matchs, in match length and in quality of talent.

Good for WWE for seizing this opportunity to promote the value of their product in a way that reaches across both wrestling and UFC demographics. The UFC has been rocking the WWE in PPVs sold lately and that rapid growth in market share includes many WWE wrestling fans.

Of course, you can always check out the other ‘side’ of this debate by going to the MMA News.

Here’s the article in it’s entirety:

LAS VEGAS – In a stunning upset, Brock Lesnar became the first man to capture both the WWE Championship and the UFC Heavyweight Championship when he defeated UFC fan favorite Randy “The Natural” Couture on Saturday night in Sin City.

Lesnar, dubbed “The Next Big Thing” upon his arrival in WWE, earned the moniker and his first WWE Championship in 2002 after besting The Rock at SummerSlam. Thanks in large part to the backing of the WWE Universe, the former college wrestling phenomenon went on to regain the title twice, both times against Kurt Angle, once at WrestleMania in 2003 and then six months later on SmackDown.

For Lesnar, the road to UFC gold proved surprisingly short. Within roughly six months, the former WWE Superstar climbed to the top of the ultimate fighting heap, capping his ascent with the upset victory over Couture.

Critics have noted that many of the fights on the UFC pay-per-view ended in the first round, leaving UFC producers scrambling to fill the three-hour event with content. The dearth of hearty competition left many viewers to watch less prestigious under-card fights and only served to bolster claims that UFC pay-per-view events can often be a “crap shoot” in regards to filling the full three hours.

For his part, Lesnar took the encouragment of the WWE Universe and the hard lessons forged during his fiery time at WWE and showed UFC and the world why he is not only a man of mettle but also a former three-time WWE Champion.

Was there a dig in the article on Kurt Angle?
