The Gas Mask
Hmm busy week in wrestling. TNA has prevented Sonjay Dutt, AJ Styles, Amazing Red, and Chris Daniels from attending ROH shows. CM Punk choose ROH over a bigger pay check in TNA. The whole issue with this is because TNA is getting a TV deal and they don't want any of their wrestlers to be associated with ROH due to the whole Feinstein situation. They don't care about their wrestlers working somewhere just not ROH. They wanted ROH owner Gabe to sign a contract stating the Rob is no longer affilated with ROH and somewhere in the contract it stated that by signing the contract it gurantees TNA will not get any heat directed towards the whole Feinstein situation. With the contract being very bleak Gabe's lawyers told him not to sign.|
Anyways, I don't think this effect ROH much with the great roster they have. AJ is a loss but oh well. This whole ordeal will hopefully get settled. They've yet to strip AJ of his title or put a new leader in charge of Chris Daniel's prophecy.
My thoughts on RAW, it was good. You can't expect a RAW before a PPV to ever be great, can't take big chances before a huge show. Looks like Flair might put over Shelton at Backlash. I think that's great for Shelton finally someone who deserves a push unlike hmmm Randy "i make it obvious that i'm reading off cue cards" Orton.
Smackdown sucked. Only thing I enjoyed is the build up for Mark Jindrak, the reflection of perfection. The Theodore Long rub is what Jindrak needs to finally make it big.
Praise Of The Week:
I think I actually saw Virgil take a bump in that match.
Wrestler Of The Week:
Jay is young and talented, always a good combo. His intense style reminds me a lot of Benoit. Doesn't exactly have the look for a singles star but theres always ways of compensating for that. As for the mic skills, well thats why he has Jim Cornette manage him. I see Jay Briscoe a year from now being listed amongst the best with American Dragon, AJ Styles, and the rest of the elite.
Rant Of The Week:
The lack of appreciation for some of my promos when I backyard wrestled. God damn they were good, yet never any props. My intense battle with Danny Denis playing No Mercy and if I was to win I get a title shot or my staring contest with him for number one contendership. Yet, none will top my promo when it was me against Stephen K. Frost.
Hazard (me): Stephen, just let me be the leader of the MDT. I don't want to have to beat you tonight, take leadership and your belt.
Stephen (mark): No dice.
Hazard: Alright, what will it take? How about money?
Stephen: Nope I won't take money.
Hazard: Alright I'll give you my best of virgil tape.
Stephen: Tempting but no.
Hazard: Alright, i'll give you girls lots of hot ladies stephen.
Hazard: Whats a matter Stephen are ladies not your thing? BLING BLING!
