Old school rasslin'

Just got done watching my Lockdown 2011 DVD, and I found it funny that TNA blurred out D’Angelo Dinero’s and Ric Flair’s butt cracks.

Considering how Swagger failed to beat Rusev in the flag match and Swagger’s “I let America down” speech the night after Raw, I wonder if they’re planning on having Swagger turn heel on America and join Rusev and become the “Real American Turncoat”.

If Swagger does indeed turn heel and (kayfabe) defect to Russia, they could change his name to Yakov Koloff. (Yakov is the Russian equivalent of Jacob which is Swagger’s real first name, and Koloff would be an homage to Ivan Koloff and Nikita Koloff.)

I know people like violence on wrestling, but that cinderblock spot - no matter how fake the cinderblocks are/were - went a little too far.

Lesnar vs Cena was a glorified squash match.

Ziggler wins the IC title in a good match.

There used to be another America’s Team, but they’re about 19 games out of first place. — Dusty Rhodes, from the September 27, 1986 episode of NWA World Championship Wrestling on SuperStation TBS. At the time, Rhodes and Magnum TA had a tag team called “America’s Team,” and “America’s Team” was also a slogan used by the Atlanta Braves due to their nationwide television coverage on TBS. (At the time, the Braves and TBS were owned by Ted Turner.) From 1985 to 1990, the Braves were one the worst teams in Major League Baseball, and the Braves finished the 1985 season with a record of 66-96. The 1985 Braves were so horrible that Braves manager Eddie Haas was fired in August and replace by interim manager Bobby Wise. Chuck Tanner was named the new manager for the 1986 season and he was fired partway through the Braves’ abysmal 1988 season and replace by Russ Nixon who would then be fired partway through the 1990 Braves season and replaced by longtime Braves manager Bobby Cox who turned the Braves into a winning team in 1991 and eventually led the team to win the World Series in 1995.

"Handsome" Dok Hendrix
I don’t understand this shit at all. Dok Hendrix was known as Michael PS Hayes for about 6,000 years in the Fabulous Freebirds, but the WWE had him as a backstage interviewer under the name of “Handsome” Dok Hendrix. Not only is he not handsome at all, but what the fuck kind of name is Dok!?

"Dok" was a reference to the hair metal group Dokken (as well as the group’s founder Don Dokken), and "Hendrix" was a reference to Jimi Hendrix.

The greatest feeling in the world would be if I could sneeze and fart and cum at the same time. — Terry Funk, as told by Michael P.S. Hayes on an episode of Legends Of Wrestling
