(WGN) March 4: Angelo Poffo passes away

----I would consider this man a Memphis legend.  Our thoughts go out to the family.


We are very sad to report that Angelo Poffo passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning in Sarasota, Florida. He was 84.

Angelo Poffo was the father of Lanny Poffo and Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

He had been in poor health for some time and was being cared for by his sons right up until his death.

Poffo started wrestling in 1948 as The Masked Miser. During the 70's and 80's he wrestled as "The Carpet Bagger" for Emile Dupre's Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling in the Maritime Provinces of Canada. During his time in the Maritimes, his two sons, Randy and Lanny, were also major stars for Dupre's promotion. He also formed a heel tag team with Chris Markoff, called "The Devil's Duo" and "The Graduates."

He made a few appearances in WCW in 1995 and was inducted into the WCW Hall of Fame.

Lanny Poffo has issued the following poem as a tribute to his father.

'twas back in 1945

On Independence Day

The Nazi's had surrendered

Japan was on it's way

My Dad was in the Navy

As history will tell

As he was bleeding through the mats

A World's record fell

He did 6000 sit-ups

With an extra 33

To glorify our Savior

Who died for you and me

And Robert Ripley's feature

Celebrated this event

Giving credence to "SUCCESS


That's always been his motto

Through times both good and bad

He's a REAL Hall of Famer

And the World's Greatest Dad!

Lanny Poffo

Moore then called out DJ Stunner and said he decided to give DJ 1 more shot to be in the family. Billy Russ said he has been there for DJ and Moore doesn't care about DJ. Russ said if Stunner wanted to go back to the Anarchy then he handed DJ a kendo stick and turned his back and told DJ to hit him.

Another really good show. Crowd was around 125-130 or so

----This group is drawing better on a regular basis than most in this area.  A lot of young talent here and some of them doing double-duty at MACW...I like the idea of putting Moore as a "chicken shit - killer" [is that possible??] type heel.  I mean he has to use a stun gun to put them out, but he is not scared to do it...Book Tour 2010 will be stopping by Saturday night along with one of my favorite tag teams - "Black Label Society".  Let me just say, [without telling much], but I would like to invite everyone out Saturday night to see the "new & improved" ME!! LOL  You also may have a chance to see something that only a very few people in this area have witnessed and Austin Lane has seen it twice. LOL  That is all I am saying!!

RassleResults: MACW Dyersburg, TN 3.05.10

-Show starts with Rick the Stick in the ring addressing the MACW title.  He calls Jason Vaughn and Tim Edwards out and tells them that both will have matches tonight to see who will wrestle next week for the right to wrestle for the title. They got to pick the opponents.  Jason picks Jon Storm for Edwards.  Edwards hold for his pick.

-Tim Edwards beats Jon Storm to go to the finals of the MACW title match.

-Blaine Devine vs Seth Knight vs Jason Static – good solid triple threat match with Devine pulling the “Pez Dispenser”.  This match looked like Seth was going to pull out to win.  Out of no where Devine throws out Seth and hits the pd for the win.

-Jon Biscuit Roberts beat Brandon Espinosa.  For the second week in a row Biscuit has cheated to win.  This week saw Brandon hitting a superman punch, when he hit the punch Biscuit dropped a chain and Brandon picked it up at the wrong time.  The ref seen it and DQ    ‘ed him. After the match Gaylon Ray came out to try and talk some sense into his brother [Biscuit].

-Tim Edwards chooses Shawn Santel to wrestle Jason Vaughn.  This was one of the best for young Jason Vaughn.  A lot of high impact action with Santel really impressing the MACW crowd.  The end of the match had Jason making a comeback until Edwards hit him in the back of the head with the title belt. Santel jumped on for the 1, 2, 3. Rick The Stick then restarted the match and Jason won from a backfire from Edwards.

-Blade with Aroura beat Chris Rocker.  It looked like Rocker had this won with a superkick but had no ref after a bump. Blade ended up hitting Rocker from behind and rolled him with his tights after Aroura had pulled the ref out of the ring.

-“Rhythm and Blues” [Brian Steele/Ike Tucker] beat “Prodigies” [Dell Tucker/Rockin Randy] when Randy was caught with his loaded boot for the DQ.

----Crowd was in the 50 range…This group has a big show in April with Buff Bagwell…Not sure what the “Pez dispenser” is??...A lot of young talent here and I will have to make it out to a show soon to see some of them.

RRO Rookie of the Year 2010 Leading Candidate Revealed!!

----In a field that will probably include Dan Matthews and Kevin Charles this year, below are three photos of my favorite for the award so far - Odyo.  Odyo is the newest member of "LSD" and has attached himself to the face of Cody Only.  As you can see below, Odyo has tons of skills including a great cowboy heel look,  foreign object hiding skills and I was photographed with him [lucky me!!] demonstrating his animal friendly skills.

Derrick King Gone From EWE!!

----DK posted the following on his account on Monday.  Apparently the building owner [JC] was unhappy with the "shoot" angle from Saturday.  This has been a back and forth battle with the owner and current EWE promoter Stan Lee.  This stuff happens when a mark [JC] tries to run a wrestling promotion!!

I was just informed that I was no longer needed in Ripley at EWE due to JC threatening to shut down the show. I had fun while it lasted.

Big Show At Minglewood!!

----I believe this show was put on my Kevin Lawler for the Memphis Business Acheivement Awards. I have no other names except Tony Myers [ref], Jerry Lawler and Scott Adams [Jethro] appearing on the show.  I was told there was a big crowd.  If anyone was there for the show, please drop me a line.  I was also told that Myers showed his ass on this show, so what the video and let me know what I mean!! LOL

RassleResults: MCW Osceola, AR 02.27.10

The action was packed Friday Night at MCW.
Opening match was Hambones 1&2 vs Jeremy Spiker and Snuffy. The match was intense and the Hambones are really becoming aggressive. They took the win with the Hambone crusher.

Then there was Homer Lee vs Arron Estacy and Homer Lee dominated the match. Homer may be a clown at times but he knows when to forget about the circus and become aggressive in the ring.

Third Match was a Cruiser Weight Title Shot C-Money vs Ray. C-Money was defeated, man this was a surprise. Ray dominated the match and the action paid off.

Semi Main Event was Miss Candy vs Nay Nay. The fans are guessing that Miss Innocent must be tired of being defeated and decided not to show her face this week.  The was a Title Match for the Ladies Belt, Miss Candy remains the Champion. Miss Candy is making Ms. Sandra very proud.

Main event was Big Daddy LaFonce and All American vs Swat and Pokerface. We all know who took this match, the best of the best All American and Big Daddy.

This next week we will be having Friday Night at Osceola and then a Fund raiser at Luxora. Luxora's very own Koko B Ware will be there with our very own Freddy Ware in his corner. Sid Vicious and Lord Hummongous will also be there. Come out and join us Bell time in Osceola 8:15pm and Bell Time in Luxora is 7:00pm

Arena Report: EWE Ripley, TN 2.27.10

Christian Jacobs with EWE belt and Contract

-----Tatt2 beat Gaylon Ray in a fast real good opening bout. Tatt2 has improved to the point of putting together a match with simple psychology and just working hard to put spots in the right space. Great shine with Tatt2 doing a dive outside the ring. Tatt2 missed a dive into the corner as Ray started heat. Finish had Tatt2 hit a 619 and a flying frogsplash. Crowd was hot. [**1/2]

----"The Prodigies" [Rockin Randy/Dell Tucker] with Derrick King beat "Rhythm & Blues" [Ike Tucker/Brian Steele] with Rick Marx when Steele got pinned. Stips had the loser of the fall leaving EWE. Good solid bout. Randy/Tucker may be one of the best working tag teams in the area. Ike took the heat and did a great job. Hot tag to Steele. DK threw Randy something and I think he used on his foot for a superkicked. [I blinked and the bout was over] [**3/4]

----Rude beat Tommy Redneck with a TKO in another solid bout. Two solid workers just doing the basics and getting the fans into it. Rude gave Redneck some hard chops to the back that had us all wincing. At one point Rude attempted to TKO Redneck and then Redneck raked the refs’ eyes. He then kicked Rude below the belt as the ref was blinded. It looked like Redneck was trying to get DQ’ed by telling the ref what he did?? But, then Rude caught him up in the second TKO for the win. [**1/2]

----Jon Michael beat Cody Melton. A big interview segment at the front with Michael talking about Bishop not showing up when he was there. DK came out and they argued back and forth. Cody Melton jumped Michael and the match started. Good shine with everything just flawless with Michael. Melton started heat when Michael hit his shoulder. Heat was Melton concentrating on getting the Crippler Crossface on Michael. At the finish Melton has the hold on and DK yells to ring the bell. [Montreal variation] Commish Dustin Baker will not ring the bell. Michael gets out of the hold and rolls Melton up for the win. DK goes crazy and tells Baker to get in the ring. Michael and DK drop the f-bomb with everyone in the crowd putting over the fact this was “real”. “You are fuckin fired”, said DK and Michael left the ring while DK ended up superkicking Baker. Strong angle at the end and a solid bout. [***1/2]

-----Flash Flanagan/Tommy Jones/JR Manson beat "LSD" [Idol Bane/Cody Only/Deadly Dale] in just a wild crazy bout. It was so crazy that I had to e-mail someone about the result. The bad thing was as they were coming out, the crowd was leaving because of the DK/Michael angle with people thinking that guy was going after DK. They put on a great match with everything used and with some blood [lots from Tommy]. Fans piled back in and everyone worked their asses off. There was a DDT on the concession table, JR ended up on my book table [did I get pissed?? LOL] and I actually thought Flash had hit me with a trashcan lid for some comments I made last year about him. Jones bled like crazy. Crowd was into it. Jones won with a top rope splash after JR hit the code breaker on Deadly. This is the kind of match that is really good live [if done right and it was], but would probably suck on TV. [***3/4]

----Christian Jacobs pinned Derrick King to win 50% of EWE. It was the main event and it was the best bout on the show. A really good bout with great fire shine from CJ at the front, including a huge gorilla slam on DK. Crowd was real hot for him. Move for move – totally flawless from both guys. It reminded me a lot of last year’s Austin Lane vs DK candidate for Match of the Year. [they worked more in the ring though] Finish started with a ref bump as CJ speared Kaleb. X-Factor from DK on CJ – no ref no pin. CJ jumped from the top rope and DK caught him with a superkicked [looked great!!!] – no ref no pin. The ref was still down and Ike came out to his music and Melton also ended up out there countering Ike. CJ ended up spearing DK for the pin and win. [****]


----150+ in the arena…As said, Tatt2 has improved a lot since the last time I seen him. You can always see him doing great things, but not being able to put together a good match. He is almost there now…As usual Ike/Steele with Marx were really over with their music and entrance. The team had one of their better bouts I have seen them in and Ike [even though he has been in the business forever] seems to be improving. I was told him and DK had a real good match a few weeks back…There was a group of heel fans that gave all the babys hell. They called Marx “Porky”, cheered for DK and you could actually hear them over the cheers for CJ in the main event…This is the second EWE show in a row that I have taken an unexpected bump. While DK was going crazy on Baker [throwing a chair at him] he pushed a security guard into me and my glasses bumped for him and my neck was sore the next day. Are you suppose to go to the matches and your neck is sore afterwards? LOL Interactive EWE!!...There are those that still BELIEVE and they live in Ripley. After the Michael/Melton match some fans tried to go after DK. The bad thing is that the guy was not escorted out of the building, which just makes it “ok” for him to do it again. He even threatened to go get a gun. BTW, DK has great heat here – they HATE him!!...Stan Lee was selling an injury and not even on the show. Lee was missed in the sense you are guaranteed a good match when he works, but the show was so good, it would be hard to say he did a bad thing by missing the show…First ever CCW main event was CJ vs DK…KC Gold announced rest of the show after Dustin got superkicked and did a great job!!...Christian Jacobs has stepped it up a notch and just looks to have the most confidence he has ever had. He is in great shape and is probably one of the few guys in the area that the WWE would consider to being on their roster. He is one of those guys that deserves a “look” and I am starting to make a list of guys I want to see him work [Austin Lane, Eric Wayne, Stan Lee, Jon Michael, Alan Steele] I was there for CJ’s first match [actually I submitted for] and probably been more critical of him than anyone in this area, but he has IT now!!...Thanks everyone!! I had a great time – thanks to everyone who put over my “new” look. It was well appreciated!!

----The young fan above [looking at Yearbook 2009] is on her road to being the new editor of RRO in about 15 years.  When I ask her in front of DK if his match was five stars or 2 stars, she said, "About 2 stars.." LOL  She later told us that Brian Steele had the best match!!

"Not This Time Brother" - RRO Talks To Mickey Ray!!

----I had the chance to talk with Mickey Ray via cell phone about the situation with Danny B Goode from XOW's show yesterday morning. Ray had just turned on Goode in the bout and he planned to run in, bump a few times and leave Goode in the ring to do his end of night dance. He stated that Danny hit him very hard in the back of the head first and that was not planned. He then went on to hitting him in the back and leg with the chair. Goode swung the chair holding it by one leg and Ray ended up with a big knot on the back of his head. When I ask if it was a work, he said, "Not this time brother."

----So, all the workers and fans in the area will go in conspiracy mode with saying this is a huge work and it was not a shoot. And, honestly I thought the same thing. But, let’s go back to the lesson learned for the Bishop/Brian Christopher incident from last year. If these two guys work each other in the very near future, then it was a work. If you never see them in the ring against each other or even on the same shows with each other, then it was a shoot. Also, ask yourself – who are they working if it is not a shoot?? Wrestling News Center and RRO?? If so, then Mississippi wrestling promoters are stupider than I thought they were. In a post later today on the site, I will talk about a “shoot” angle that Jon Michael/Derrick King did on Saturday night at EWE. It was an angle and they were not working me backstage after the angle, because the guys that read this site are not going to equal money at the box office.

----And I will go on record, and I pretty much said the same thing about Brian Christopher, if you are a promoter in this area and you use Danny B Goode..well…you are stupid. Goode apparently went off on the whole crew backstage and never apologized to Ray. This business is based on getting in the ring and trusting your opponent. Even with the worst situations we have had with Eric Wayne/Greg King Jr and Syn/Jason Reed – those guys going in the ring trusted one another. And if you talked to all four of those guys right now, I can bet they would not have a problem working those same guys again. Ray would not be able to say that about Goode, because he could not trust him. Can everyone else just trust Goode and consider this an isolated incident?? I have worked with Ray on many occasions and it has always been a pleasure – one of the nicest guys in this area. I have worked with Goode once and it was a good experience also, but I have been told by many people in this area that Goode is hard to work with and doesn’t like doing a job.

----On the flip side, if it is a work, then you guys should know better. This will not benefit anyone and actually just gives Goode a bad name. I was told there were a lot of workers in the crowd and when Goode dropped the “f-bomb” a few times and such, the crowd left unhappy. There is a difference leaving the crowd unhappy [at the babyface] from angle than leaving them wanting to kill the heel [DK/Michael angle].

The Straight Flush "In A Perfect Wrestling World" by Pokerface

In a Perfect Wrestling World

This week's article will not be as long as the others, but it's what I feel is the "Perfect Wrestling World". Week after week I complain about what I feel are the sins and ills of wrestling. But you may wonder, what is Poker's idea wrestling environment. Well here goes...

Local Level or Regional Level - I would first start with the promoters. The promoters would have to be full- time. Not just weekend promoters. That way 100% of their attention would be focused on the company. That way if wrestling if  was the only way they ate, a better product may be produced. The same goes for the wrestlers. Only full timers. If wrestling is the only way they ate, a better presentation of their abilities may surface. There would be only one promotion running within a 300 mile radius in any one state. Actually only one promotion per every two states. This would help prevent overexposure to any one area by different companies. Hopefully having fewer companies would help lessen the chance of shoddy workers having a job, and also lessen shitty promoters from killing towns. In today's economy, drawing at least 700 paid fans a show would be acceptable, running at least 3 shows a week. Running 3 shows a week give the boys quality down time to spend with their family, go to the gym, or workout in the ring. If the with the right sponsors, 700 paid fans a show could be somewhat profitable to the boys and the office, as long as overhead is kept low. Plus the boys would have more of a chance to make extra money selling merchandise. But shooting for more than 700 is always a must. And all the boys would have gear. No backyard attire allowed.

National and International Level -

It would be great to have 2 major promotions in the US, but no more than that, so not to risk overexposure on the television market. With two promotions the boys would always have some kind of leverage or bargaining power. Only 4 wrestling shows a week would be shown, for instance RAW- Smackdown, Nitro - Thunder. The brand split was one of the best ideas WWE has had. So if there were a second company, I would keep with that idea. There would be be two major organizations in Europe as is in the US, that would at times tour Africa, China, etc. There would be two major Japanese promotions. So I guess you could say that there would only be 6 major wrestling companies. This would guarantee that there would always be a place to make the money in wrestling.

Overall - There would be 3 major  accredited wrestling universities. They would properly train prospects. They would have to be approved by both major US companies. All the promotions would book according to logic and not bullshit. All wrestlers would be paid a minimum and would get paid according to drawing power. The status or position of the wrestlers would be based on talent and ability, not politics or who's blowing the boss(yeah I said it, so what) Last but not least, we all would wrestle for the fans, and not feel that they owe us something. Like I said, all this would be possible, in a  "Perfect Wrestling World", but we don't live in one. Until next time, keep your pimp hand strong!

Derrick King calls out Jamie Jay, crying about being in the 2nd match, Jamie tells him that he has nothing to do with the matches, but Derrick thinks otherwize. He challenges Jamie but Jamie didnt commit to it. The crowd is really wanting to see Jamie wrestle.

In Case You Missed It!! Danny B Shoots??

----D-Rock had a huge report on last week's IWA TV show - 2.20.10 - over at  CLICK HERE to read it.

----Big story this morning over at has Danny B Goode shooting in an interview at XOW and apparently things "were getting a bit too heated." Rule of thumb is that when a worker says, "This is a shoot.", then it is not one.  It will be interesting to see where XOW goes with this. Here is the story...

Tonight, at the XOW show that took place in Hernando, several strange events occurred, involving Danny B.

First, before the match was getting ready to begin, Danny went off on the mic, blasting the promotion for not having the cage that was advertised and claimed they were cheating the people. Referee Chris P. Fries explained that they had a flat and could not deliver the cage in time for the match. Danny B. made some disparaging remarks to Chris P. and got right in his face, telling him, "This is a shoot!"

Later, after the end of an incredible and crazy main event, Danny B. hit Mickey Ray with several stiff chair shots and challenged any of the guys in the back that had something to say to come on down to the ring. Syn, who was watching the show in the crowd, came to check on Mickey Ray. Syn told Danny, "That's enough", but Danny kept going off on his tirade. The fans left because things were getting a bit too heated.

XOW's Tony Watts asked me if I would post his response to Danny B's strange situation that transpired Saturday night.

FEBRUARY 27, 2010

WARNING: Due to some strong language, this may not be suitable for all viewers

Tonight, at XOW we had a problem with Danny B. He shot on me. He shot on these fans. I bent over backwards for that man and he shit on me. I'm not playing that game. I'm sorry that the cage could not get here, tonight, but due to financial reasons we could not get the cage here.

I have sweat, bled and cried for this company. Me and my son sets this ring up to give these guys a place to work. If they disrespect me like Danny B. did tonight, they will not be working on a XOW show.

Appreciate everyone that's been with XOW from day one. I'm sorry I can't have everyone that I would like. I'm taking a couple months off and XOW will come back, bigger and better than ever!

These fans are the ones that paid their hard earned money to come watch the show and I'll be damned if anyone is going to shit on them!

More to come, later. I've got a lot on my mind.

Full reports and pictures from Saturday's IWA and XOW shows to be posted in the next couple days. Great day of wrestling that was lots of fun despite the bizarre way the night ended.
