Trish Stratus interview highlights


Source: Diva-Dirt.com

It's been a busy couple of months for the legendary 7-time Women's Champ, Trish Stratus. She's back in the WWE fold with the USA Network revival of Tough Enough, she's going to WrestleMania this Sunday, has a movie premiering in one week and is on the cover of Oxygen magazine! With so much going on in the Stratusphere, we decided to give the Diva Dirt Legacy Award winner a call and discuss!

In this exclusive interview, a sequel to our first interview (Diva-Dirt.com) last September, Trish dishes on her return to WWE, working with Snooki and this Sunday's WrestleMania 27 extravaganza in Atlanta. In this one hour+ interview, we also speak in depth about the upcoming season of Tough Enough, which premieres next week, as Trish gives us her opinion on each of the five female contestants. We also touch upon her stunning Oxygen magazine cover, the world premiere of her debut movie 'Bail Enforcers', and the WWE release of Dave 'Fit' Finlay who had a big hand in Trish's training and success in the ring as a WWE Diva.

Some quotes:

On getting the call to do Tough Enough: "I would say it was about the beginning of February I got this call, 'Hey, we got this new show Tough Enough which you might have heard about. We want you to be the female trainer on the show' and of course I was just absolutely honored to be asked. [...] At first they told me, 'We can't really tell you the details on who's going to be involved yet'. I was like, 'Hmm, well, last time I accepted a show and I didn't know who was involved, I ended up working with Erik Estrada and Latoya Jackson, so I'd like to know please'. [Laughs] They told me 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin would be the host and I said, 'I'm in'. And then Bill DeMott and Booker T [became involved] as well, so I was like 'Oh absolutely'."

One of the things that made her want to come back & do the storyline going into WrestleMania: "The opportunity came up to work with Lay-Cool which I'm so excited about. I mean they've done such great work. People love to hate them. As a fan, I've sat back and I've watched -- especially Layla -- [I've] watched them grow into these great workers. They've really come along, especially when you think about where both of their backgrounds are. They've put in the work to develop their characters. [...] I was a big fan of their work so to come back and work with them was a neat little opportunity."

What it's like working with Snooki: "She's so sweet. The first time I met her -- the first Raw -- she was just really excited to be there and really open minded and I love that when people come from other worlds and are just like, 'Okay, what do you want me to do?'. Sometimes you get that resistance like, 'Hmm, I don't know if I could do that...' and she was just totally into it."

Lawler interview highlights


Source: ScrippsNews.com

Jerry "The King" Lawler recently did an interview with Alex Marvez for ScrippsNews.com. He talks WrestleMania, Michael Cole, and more. Here are some highlights:

How his mother would react to WWE's storyline: "Probably not, but I don't mean that in a bad way. My mom was never a wrestling fan. She worked for us for 20 years at the (Memphis) wrestling company, but all she did was sold advance tickets for us. She never stayed for the matches. She couldn't stand watching me wrestle. It made her too nervous. No matter what age, I was always her baby. She was worried about her son getting hurt."

On nearly giving up on a WrestleMania match: "Every single year it just seemed like something else would come up. I'd get pushed to the backburner or it just wasn't remembered. When 2009 and 2010 came and went with nothing there, I wasn't really expecting anything just because it was a situation where I thought the age thing was going to play a big factor."

His WrestleMania match with Michael Cole: "All I know is when I hit him, he's going down one way or the other whether he knows how to fall or not. In that respect, I don't think there's any way he can screw up"

PWO TV #112: Raven's Rules
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP8E5SVAY1o

Raven/Krimson/Kirst vs. Matthew Justice/Jason Gory/Corey Winters
For many weeks now, "The Embodiment of Evil" Krimson and his demonic disciple Kirst have been planning a "family reunion" with a man they expect to join and enhance their cause of misery and destruction, former multiple-time World Champion Raven. With Raven by their side, Krimson and company could very well be unbeatable. However, Matthew Justice has been the only man brave enough to stand up to Krimson and his macabre mind game and this usual "One Man Militia" has enlisted Jason Gory and Corey Winters into his army, two young men looking to make an impact and get noticed. A win here would certainly accomplish that, but does everyone know what they are getting into? Will this battle of mind games illicit some unexpected results?

Marion Fontaine's First Week As PWO Champion
"The Megastar" captured his first PWO Title, thanks in part to his friend and rumored business partner Aaron Maguire. This week, we hear from the new champ, but unbeknownst to him we'll also here from his first challenger and newly-named #1 contender. Is Fontaine's celebration short-lived?

Johnny Gargano Injured - Exclusive Footage
Marion Fontaine used a nightstick to the already-injured neck of Johnny Gargano to defeat him for the PWO Title, however it was what happened after PWO TV went off the air that may have been even more damaging. Gargano was the victim of a mysterious and unexplainable assault, and we hope to have exclusive footage of the incident and an update on Gargano's condition this week.

Sex Appeal's "True Talent" Bobby Shields vs. Aeroform's Louis Lyndon
The Sex Appeal vs. Ninja Elite Squad/Aeroform rivalry continues to heat up over philosophical differences. Shields & company may feel the NES style has no place in pro wrestling, but the East Lansing Dojo graduate Lyndon will bring a vast array of martial arts skills and high-flying offense to the table. Sex Appeal's Nicki Valentino defeated Aeroform's Flip Kendrick two weeks ago. Can Bobby Shields make it 2-0 or will Louis Lyndon even the score?

"The Natural" Brian Bender vs. Dan Arkham
Bender has been out to prove he's a changed man since embarking on his own, and thanks to a rigorous gym & diet regimen is in fantastic physical shape, and also fantastic mental shape as well. Can Brian Bender prove his athleticism and skill can take him where he needs to go? Step one is this week.

RVD reveals who convinced him to join TNA


Former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam did an interview with The Sun in the UK talking about leaving WWE and eventually signing with TNA.

"When my contract ended with the WWE, TNA tried to get me straight away but I said no. Eric Bischoff called me, Dixie Carter called me, even Jason Hervey picked up the phone. But I said to myself that they were not serious because (Hulk) Hogan hadn't called yet ... Then he did, I was doing my radio show and Hogan called in. The guy spent a half hour explaining on the air why I should join him in TNA. That was what got me here. Hulk is the most recognized guy there is in the industry, I value his opinion and knew he was doing what he felt was best for us all when he brought guys like myself to TNA."

IWA Mid-South closes down - again


IWA Mid-South has shut down yet again. Jerry Wiseman of The Columbus Pro Wrestling Examiner posted an article outlining the real life drama that has occurred behind the scenes.

- In a radio interview, promoter Ian Rotten offered to sell the group's wrestling ring, concession items and the IWA-MS video library.

- "Halfbreed" Billy Gram called in to the program and accused Rotten on leaving him threatening messages on his answering machine, which Rotten didn't deny.

- Mickie Knuckles, who had a short run in TNA as Moose, claimed that Rotten physically and mentally abused her during the course of their five-year relationship.

- The father of the deceased wrestler J.C. Bailey, who died from complications of head trauma, also called and wanted Rotten out of the business.

- Wrestler Bull Pain called in and lashed out at Rotten for not paying him the money he is owed.

Credit: WrestleView.com

UPDATE:

Fallout from the now infamous Ian Rotten podcast interview - my opinion on the legal issues that cropped up. Joe Bailey's case against using footage that had JC Bailey appearing on IWA-MS videos - it will not be easy to get that blocked. Besides suing IWA-MS, he would also have to sue Smart Mark Video which has a pretty aggressive legal team. Joe Bailey would have to prove that JC didn't give consent to be filmed and show he wouldn't had known that these events would be sold on DVD. Anyone who willingly takes a booking at IWA-MS knows they are being filmed and I can't see how can be proven otherwise. The selling of drugs issue, Joe Bailey would have to press charges in Peoria County, Illinois. The type of drug given wasn't mentioned out loud during the podcast so witnesses would need to be subpoenaed to testify what drug was sold. Another question that was asked, was Ian Rotten paid to do this interview. An email inquiry to Jerry Wiseman himself by me yielded the answer that he was not paid to do this interview. And as promised by Joe Bailey, the Clarksville, IN show was blocked though IWA-MS may take the venue owners to court. As for CM Punk, I heavily disagreed with him saying OVW is the reason why he's in WWE. Whenever anyone gets signed with WWE they go to WWE developmental, which OVW was the developmental territory at the time (now it's FCW). Punk had prior runs in TNA and ROH, prior to that and concurrently was working with IWA-MS. Wiseman for some reason believed he started with OVW and got signed with WWE because of that.

FTW results from 3-26 in Newbern, TN


-1st Match: “Naughty by Nature” “Georgia Boys” [Gaylon Ray/Shannon Lee] beat [Pokerface/Rude].


-2cnd Match: Kyatia beat Ricky Andrews in a “Flag on a Pole” Match. It was going Andrews’s way until Mad Money Mike threw a chain to Kyatia to use for the win. Kyatia then strapped Andrews after the match to set up a strap match this week.


-3rd Match: “Metal Brothers” [Jai Webster/Suicide] beat “Swagger Boys” [Weezy/Biscuit] to advance to semi-finals of the tag tourney.


-4th Match: Syn/Stunner beat Motley Cruz/Eric Hayes by DQ with special ref Jason The Brain. Cruz kept his heat using the spike he used to bust up Sarge and Mickey from last week. Heat on Syn with hot tag to Stunner. During the hot tag, Hayes accidently hit Cruz and Cruz dropped the spike. Jason dq’ed them and Cruz beat Hayes up until Sarge made the save.Syn/Stunner move into the semi-finals.


-Main Event: “SOBs” [Kid/Mark Justice] beat The Shadows to advance to the semi-finals. Finish had the Shadows do the “Nightmares” switcharoo and then Shadow hit mist in the ref’s eyes when Justice pulled him into the way. SOBs hit springboard double closeline from the top rope to win the match.

NOTES

146 in the building, which was a 29% decrease in the crowd the week before. The return of EWE with a free and the end of the month had to have some effect on them. The true test is the next four weeks when each go head to head with paid crowds…Looks like NxN will be at EWE… Andrews is being booked perfectly as a babyface – taking a beating over and over. It will just get him over more…Jason Reed was suppose to be Cruz’ partner, but they said Reed was “double-booked” – not sure what is going on there. It probably got a good pop, but I would have saved Sarge from the crowd…Driveby is in a new SOB – he is called Dirty SOB…Not sure the shoot story behind the name change, but the angle has Billy Rush [commish] changing it to Full Tennessee Wrestling because it is the fans of Tennesse’s show, not Mad Money Mike…Next week has the fans strap match, Dixie defends against Running Wolf and the finals of the tag tournament…Rush also announced that Robert “The Main Factor” Devine had signed to come in and I look for them to give him a big babyface push.

Jimmy Hart with legendary Memphis wrestling announce Dave Brown





Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin’ opened to rave reviews from the media, the fans, and the wrestlers themselves. Additionally, the limited run premiere held an average screen box office of over $3900, enough to rank just behind Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Sucker Punch, Limitless, and the Lincoln Lawyer at #5 in the U.S.A. for the avg. screen box office for the weekend of March 25-27th!



The documentary chronicling the rough and tumble, fire-throwing and brawling Southern wrestling territory from 1950s to the mid-1980s featuring such stars as Sputnik Monroe, Jackie Fargo, Jerry “the King” Lawler, “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant, and “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart.



Owner of the territory and one of the top wrestlers in the Memphis region in the 1970s, Jerry Jarrett was quoted in The Memphis Daily News as saying, “I think they did a great job of catching the magic of that era and putting it on film.” Jerry “the King” Lawler, who attended an advanced screening of Memphis Heat, said that he loved it. Jimmy Hart flew in from Wrestlemania 27 preparations to enjoy a victory lap in the territory where he became the top heel manager in the world.



Reviews:

The Commercial Appeal, John Beifuss: “Memphis Heat is entertaining from the 1st bell to the last.”

The Memphis Flyer’s Chris Davis: “An always entertaining and surprisingly enlightening film.”

Wrestling News Center: “Memphis Heat is entertaining.”
