Hall of Famer Rips Bo and Adam Rose
Controversial WWE Hall of Famer Billy Graham ripped the Bo Dallas and Adam Rose gimmicks in a recent Facebook post:
Last night when I saw Bo Dallas running around the ring acting like an idiot and hugging his opponent Xavier Woods when the match was over I wanted to vomit. Then here come the effeminate Pete Rose sucking on a lollipop, followed by maybe 15 of his circus troupe of freaks and geek’s, he gives me the creeps. Then came the dwarf El Torito dressed in a children’s bull costume who proceeds to pin a normal size wrestler. By then I did indeed vomit.
Mick Foley On his WWE Relationship
Mick Foley posted the following on Facebook about his relationship with WWE:
The problems I am currently going through with WWE sometimes feel like the problems A middle or highschooler might go through during the course of a turbulent interpersonal relationship. At a certain point, me saying, “WWE won’t even mention Wade Barret’s #CactusJack elbow, complete with visual and the vocal “bang bang” acknowledgement, starts to sound like an eighth/grader complaining that little Susie gave him the cold shoulder at gym class.
In the end my relationship with WWE, like any serious relationship is going to remembered for far more than a minor dispute about a legends contract and the refusal to mention my name for a few weeks on WWE Monday Night Raw. In the end, the new WWE Network gives fans a chance to watch my body of work and make up their own mind – and I will always be thankful to the people in charge who went above and beyond the call of duty to produce A great DVD in #ForAllMankind.
Besides, all these minor problems will be a thing in the past if WWE will just take me up on my offer, and grant me a spot on the #ExoticExpress.
Justified Actor Pitching Wrestling Reality Show
Billy Corgan’s upcoming AMC series is not the only wrestling reality show in the works. Justified actor Nick Searcy told The Matthew Aaron Show that he’s pitching one himself:
For the last year I have been working on this show about independent wrestlers, I went to Georgia last summer and shot for about a week with a wrestler named Mickey Gotti, we got picked up by Magilla Entertainment in New York (Long Island Medium, Moonshiners) and in the next 2-3 weeks we start pitching the show.
The show that we’ve got is definitely way different that what Billy’s got, ours is much more about who these guys are, who does this, who are these people that want to be wrestlers that also work at carpet mills and garages during the week and then on the weekend for 25 or 50 bucks they are dropping each other on their heads and they long to be in the WWE.
