Last Post.....

----A few quick notes to end it all.  

----I have thought about what I would say in my last post, since the day I made the final decision to end it.  And after a week of posts from other people and the radio show, there is not much more to say.  I have spend a decade dedicated to wrestling in this area.  My passion is still there - I will always love wrestling in this area.  It is time to move on as my life continues to change every day and sitting here 20+ hours a week on the site is not going to help me.  
----Just want to say, THANK YOU to everyone that has visited the site.  I do appreciate all the e-mails, texts and phone calls I have received.  THANK YOU!!!

----Gene Jackson is going forward with www.cheapheatradio.com with a message board and area news.  Please try to support him.  He is a great guy and will give everyone a fair shake.

----If you want to keep up with me, then add me on Facebook or Twitter @BrianTramel599d.  My new site hopefully will be operational by mid-July, so bookmark it today - www.599dietman.com!!

A Piece of My Mind by "The Big Cheese" Sal Corrente May 17th 2011-The Final Article

 
I had been in the wresting for 25 years or so when Jimmy Hart brought The Big Cheese to Memphis to manage The Assassins. I realize most Mid-South fans had never heard of me when I arrived. I had no idea at the time how many interesting and life changing experiences would occur in what ended up being a short time in Memphis Wrestling.

I still to this day think about all my troubles with Jerry Lawler and what really set him off. I always wonder if given the chance and a proper build would the people have Memphis paid to see Jerry Lawler take care of The Big Cheese. I am still amazed that as many times that Jerry worked me for or with me in the ring as a referee that he didn’t remember me but I actually believe that he didn’t remember me. It was such a shame to me I was having a great time in Memphis. I appreciate Corey Maclin for listening to Jimmy Hart and allowing me to come in. Of course I was warned on the front end since it wasn’t Lawler’s idea he would do what he could to wreck it. It’s really funny he has tried to wrestle so many people over the recent years with no success. I seemed to have some real heat maybe we couldn’t have drawn a dime but I sure would have treasured the chance to try.

Since my forum to write my blogs is going away I want to say that I attempted to settle my problems with Jerry Lawler and have him headline a WrestleReunion in Los Angeles against Austin Idol. I was going to manage Idol and Stacey Carter would have managed Lawler. I have been told that Idol was going to no show. I can tell you with 100% certainty that Idol would have been there. After receiving confirmation from his agent that he would do it Lawler bailed out and killed the whole deal. He was going to be paid VERY well. So I have done everything I could do to make this situation right Jerry had no interest in that.
As most recently this whole Stan Lane is not Sam Ticer and is not dead mess was another Memphis situation that I got involved in and luckily helped straighten out pretty quickly. I can honestly say that I couldn’t have dreamed up or thought I would ever be involved in.

So with that being said I want to personally thank Brian Tramel for allowing me to present my opinions on RasslinRiot Online. It was actually Brian who said that since I had so many stories and the people of Memphis have no idea who you are tell stories about what you have done. As I wrote articles it gave me a chance to reflect on my life and the different things that I have done or been involved in. I will forever be grateful to Brian although we have never met I feel like I know him. He gave me a forum at a time in my life when I was very bitter and angry. I always told the truth but I needed a place to vent and Brian gave me one.

Who knows why things happen the way that they do we just have to adapt as they happen. I want to thank Corey Maclin, Jimmy Hart, Stan Lane and Brian Tramel and Koko B. Ware for all their support through my times in Memphis. If you were a reader of my articles and enjoyed them I am glad that I was able to entertain you. If you read them and I pissed you off well don’t we all need something to vent about? So with that I say goodbye to RasslinRiot Online but I will continue to follow the new adventures of Brian Tramel on Facebook. The transformation Brian has gone through is something we should all be envious of, that type of discipline is something that we should all have. I believe that Brian should be very proud of what he has accomplished in wrestling and out. So with that said in case anyone wonders this boy from New York City loves Memphis, TN.

The picture in this article was taken in Orlando Florida with a baby face Big Cheese and Scotty Too Hotty we had tagged with Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka against “Gorgeous” Gary Royal, The Perfect Creation and Sugaa. We were managed by Afa “The Wild Samoan #1” Anoai and the other side by jimmy Hart “The Mouth of the South. So far that has been my last match I don’t know if it will be or it wont we never know what is right around the corner. With that I truly wish Brian personal and professional success in all that he attempts. He gave a lot for the people of Memphis and all the surrounding area’s for a long time. Good Luck Brian.

On a personal note WrestleReunion conventions are still happening. You can check out our website at www.wrestlereunion.com or find us on Facebook.

The young men in the picture are Nick Rodems of Tampa, Florida (Far Right) and his buddy Jake

This Has Been the Last Piece of My Mind. :)

IPW to run Bi-Weekly show in Tupelo, MS on Friday nights!


I just got word that Intense Pro Wrestling will begin running Good Time Charlies in Tupelo, MS. every two weeks beginning Friday June 3rd!  What will this mean for the weekly TFW show in Skyline that shares many of the same wrestlers as IPW??  Can Tupelo support two Friday night shows?  Which side will the wrestlers choose? This should be an interesting story to watch unfold over the coming weeks ahead.  For more info on IPW, add 'IPW Expo' on Facebook.

The Final CHEAP HEAT at RRO......by Gene Jackson

So I received a message from BT a few weeks ago that in some ways shocked me and in other ways didn't shock me.  Brian informed that he would be shutting down RRO in May and part of me was really shocked as for five years RRO had been his passion and whether anyone wants to admit it or not, a huge part of the landscape of southern independent wrestling.  A lot of people will write various things about the shutdown of RRO and about Brian in general.  Some people "get it" and appreciate what he's done, while others don't.  I for one do because for just a couple of short weeks last year I tried to step in for him and allow him a "vacation" from the site and I seen first hand the amount of work that goes into it.


You constantly have people emailing you upcoming shows, results, pics, questions, and they want it all done A.S.A.P. as if this were your REAL JOB....but it's not, it's something you do to help promote the business you love.  There's no pay, half the time there's not even a lot of appreciation, at least that you can see or hear......it's there....but sometimes you lose sight of it when all you read is criticism and whining from people that you didn't please by either not posting about their show (because you didn't know about it cause no one sent anything in) or because you dare speak your honest opinion about their "rasslin' show".  It's really a thankless job and if you think BT made enough money selling yearbooks and ad space on this site to even account for a 10th of the work that went into this site then you my friend are the biggest "mark" of all.  I lasted about three weeks or so and BT stepped in and took it back over because I just didn't have time at that point to keep things afloat.  


I'm happy for Brian that he has a new passion in his life, one that perhaps is easier to see the results of.....helping people become healthier I'm sure is more gratifying and fulfilling than writing about a wrestling show, or promoting the latest "return of Memphis Wrestling", or Corey Maclin's financial situation.  However, BT can walk away with his held high after reading things like Eric Wayne's latest column, or hearing from the many other guys in the business just what the exposure on this site has meant to them and the pursuit of their "passion".  I know I've certainly been thankful he's provided me a forum to post my columns on wrestling as sporadic as they may have been in recent years.  Cheap Heat Radio was launched here at RRO and has hundreds of downloads each week, with some of the more notable guests receiving into the THOUSANDS of downloads and I have no doubt we'd never had reached the number of potential listeners we did without the exposure from the RRO website.


With that being said this Thursday morning at 9am, I will be hosting a special "Farewell to RRO" edition of Cheap Heat Radio, Brian Tramel will be my guest to discuss his feelings on shutting down RRO and has brought him to this point.  I'd also like for anyone who was a part of RRO either as a writer, a contributor of any sort, or even if your just a long time reader, call into the show on Thursday morning and let Brian know what RRO has meant to you.
Click here to go to the live show on Thursday or to listen afterwards!

As Brian mentioned in his announcement, I will have an announcement on the show that morning about something new I've been working on that will hopefully help fill some of the void left by RRO's departure.  It will not be as all inclusive as RRO but it will be another avenue to promote southern independent wrestling if everyone gets on board.


So make sure you tune in or call in on Thursday and be part of the show as we bid farewell to Rasslin' Riot Online and good luck to BT on his new endeavor.

Southern States Wrestling Power Half Hour 4.10.11

----New Southern States Wrestling Power Half Hour!

EVERY wrestler should listen to this....

Here's a youtube video featuring a radio shoot interview with Al Snow, in this interview Snow talks about the "seven deadly steps" that's "killing the wrestling business"....I defy ANYONE from saying this isn't true. You can see this on most every show you go to or watch on television.
The seven deadly steps are: Snow humorously discusses this for several minutes but makes some very valid points here, I think this is just another factor in the slow death of pro wrestling. Take a listen and share your opinion on the kayfabe board.

Step 1 Shine the baby face

Step 2 Heat spot bigger more important moves then the face

Step 3 Continue to sell

Step 4 Baby face hope spot

Step 5 Double Down Sell

Step 6 Face comeback

Step 7 obvious finish


Snow humorously discusses this for several minutes but makes some very valid points here, I think this is just another factor in the slow death of pro wrestling. Take a listen and share your opinion on the kayfabe board.


R.I.P. "Sweet & Sour" Larry Sweeney



Alex Whybrow a.k.a.
"Sweet & Sour" Larry Sweeney
Feb 18, 1982-April 11, 2011

Pro wrestling lost another great performer way before his time yesterday as Alex Whybrow better known to independent wrestling fans as "Sweet & Sour" Larry Sweeney took his own life at the age of 29 at a pro wrestling school in Louisana.

Sweeney became well known on the independent circuit becoming most prominent around 2006 and competed all over the world. Larry was trained at the WrestleFactory by Mike Quackenbush but would later receive some extra "polish" from veterans such as "Playboy" Buddy Rose and Ed Wiskowski better known as "Col. Debeers". Sweeney competed in tons of promotions but some of his most prominent work was done in IWA Mid South, Chikara, IWA Deep South, F.I.P., CZW, and later in Ring of Honor where he mostly managed and once had a famous face off with the legendary Bruno Sammartino.

Larry Sweeney was a throwback to the "good ol' days" as a guy who was not only a solid in-ring worker but highly entertaining as well. Sweeney was gifted on the microphone and much like veterans such as Jerry Lawler, Sweeney could seemlessly switch gears from being comedic to intense.....one moment he's hamming it up doing a strut off in the ring....to intense heel heat when the time was right...a very rare trait in young wrestlers these days. Sweeney was advanced beyond his years but that perhaps came from some of the legendary stars he had the opportunity to work with in his brief career in the wrestling business such as Jake 'the Snake' Roberts, the Iron Sheik, Bob Armstrong, Brad Armstrong, Kamala, Demolition, and many, many more. The eternal ICW/ICWA Tex-ark-ana Television Champion, Sweeney took a title belt that started as a comedic prop and actually gave it a lot of credibility by competing in so many different places
and stealing the show night in and night out.


Despite his fun loving disposition in the ring and in the locker room, Alex Whybrow the man behind the persona suffered from bi-polar disorder and many other mental issues stemming from an auto accident in his youth that he never quite was able to deal with. At one point seeming to be well on his way to stardom, in 2009, Sweeney had a falling out with Ring of Honor and left the promotion and the wrestling business after having a complete mental breakdown that he deemed to be the "worst moment in his life". Sweeney however bounced back and was living in Louisana and starting to wrestle again and train wrestlers at a school in the area. He also planned to once again return to Chikara Pro in 2011. At this point no one knows why Alex Whybrow chose to take his own life other than perhaps his mental disorders finally overcame him. One thing is for certain pro wrestling lost a great entertainer and a lot of wrestlers lost a great friend who always kept them laughing in and out of the ring. We can only hope that "Redondo Beach, California's Favorite Son" has finally found the peace on the other side that he couldn't find here.
