*I was contacted by ROH to come in and do a match with Bryan Danielson but had to turn them down. 1) They weren’t offering me enough money, and 2) They wanted me to do a job and then shake his hand afterwards and declare him the “World’s Greatest Wrestler.” I thought the angle would work better if I beat HIM and he shook my hand afterwards and declared myself as “The World’s Greatest Wrestler.” Negotiations broke down at that point and an agreement was never reached.
*I noticed that Kevin Mcalhargey’s last column is going to be next week. I’m sure it will be a lengthy soliliquy(I hope I spelled that right) on how much he’s learned from reading my stuff. At least he’s had the common decency to not rip off the names of his articles, Mr. Steve Anderson. You couldn’t come up with anything better than “random thoughts?” That’s the name of my articles. For future reference, don’t title your articles with “random thoughts” anymore. That’s unofficial copyright infringement. I should sue your ass.
*Freddy Prinze Jr. has joined WWE’s creative team, apparantely when negotiations broke down with their first choice, Yakov Smirnoff. Maybe he’s a pretty creative guy. We’ll see. I only hope that his blog isn’t any indication of how nerdy this guy might actually be, though. Which wrestler do you think is going to get heat by trying to sleep with Sarah Michelle Gellar?
*Another fascinating Impact review from Jeff Hamlin of wrestlingobserver.com:
I’ve been waiting for someone that writes for a pro wrestling insider website to actually go on record and try to speak for the “ordinary fan.” Jeff Hamlin has obliged, and doesn’t realize how condescending he has made himself sound. Jeff Hamlin thinks that wrestling fans that aren’t “smart” must be morons, because there’s no way that they can keep up with a show that has so many angles. Now we’re talking about professional wrestling, not 24, CSI, or Law and Order.
*Don’t anybody complain to me if we see the Invisible Man make an appearance in The Prince Justice Brotherhood storyline. In a related story, when I was in New Zealand for a sci fi convention, I spent alot of time with Christopher Judge, the star, creator, and executive producer of Stargate on the sci-fi channel. He actually has a storyline for the introduction of alien characters into wrestling. We can only hope and pray to see it some day.
*Whatever happened to Kevin Kelley’s ridiculous and awful idea to have an interactive wrestling federation? The booking meetings would be a sight to behold. They’d look like the Green Bay Packer’s stockholder meeting they had at lambeau field recently. 10,000 people. “OK everyone! Raise your hand if Sabu should go over. 1,2, 6, 12, 25. OK! 25! Now raise your hand if Bryan Danielson should go over. (ten minutes passes) 4,752! OK! Raise your hand if you think it should be a draw.”
