Citizen Kane ... ;)

We'll have ITVR up in a few moments but before I post it y'all need to check this out:

I don't agree with 90% of what Glenn Jacobs has to say, but he is still a very well spoken and intelligent man, and I respect the heck out of him even while disagreeing with him.

So we recorded ITVR as promised, but it didn't save properly. Normally, this is cool I can resave; but I thought it HAD and deleted the project. So ... the Gods conspire against me. Please rest assured however you will get to hear us Thursday night (yes Thursday night as we're heading off to our hometown for the long Civic Holiday weekend here in Ontario). Tune in then - and throughout the week as we discuss new happenings in the world of wrestling.

Ooooh yeah .... freak out, freak out!

Hey all - first of all, haven't forgotten we owe you an ITVR - it'll go up tomorrow shortly before Raw. Meanwhile though, had to share perhaps THE most exciting thing I've seen in awhile in terms of WWE merchandise (DVDs not included - those tend to interest me on a fairly regular basis)

Oooooh yeeeaaaaaah! DIG IT! :D

Appearance Notice!

Hi guys! Sorry we didn't get to pub this ahead of time - we only found out Monday and it's been a busy few days - but we were on Online World of Wrestling Radio (OWW Radio) last night, and it was fun. Be sure and check it out by going to and click the Radio link at the top of the page. We were only on the first half hour of the show, but it's worth staying tuned in as they put on 3 hours of quality programming, with both Tatanka coming on as a guest in the second hour, and the former Sally Boy of the Main Event Mafia security team on in the third. :)

We'll be back with our own wee podcast this week, but it will more than likely be over the weekend - my mom and my grandma will be in town the first part of the weekend ... although how much fun would it be getting them as guests on the podcast? Hmmm ... ;) Just think about that one. And meanwhile - in the words of the great Mick Foley - Have a nice day!

Drew McIntyre Interview

There's an interview at Slam! Sports ( featuring Drew McIntyre. He confirms his marriage to WWE Diva Tiffany back in May in Las Vegas (no, Elvis wasn't in attendance!), and that he was kept off of TV for a couple of weeks due to legitimate work visa issues which have since been resolved. He also gives high praise to the card in place, telling fans he guarantees that "anybody that buys a ticket and comes to the show and is not 100% satisfied and don't think it's the greatest show they've ever seen in their life, ask security, ask for Drew McIntyre, and I will give them back their money myself, because that's how sure I am it'll be an amazing pay-per-view. The entire card is 'Oh my God.'"

You can check out the entire interview at the link above. Good stuff!

ITVR tomorrow night ...

But in the meantime ... I wanted to share one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time on WWE TV ... heehee ...

Meanwhile on a more serious note I want to wish Scott Hall, who remains in hospital with pneumonia, a continued recovery. Apparently his kidneys reacted poorly to a test run earlier this week, requiring further tests - although he is off IV and oxygen.

TNA Victory Road

Hey guys - first sorry that this weekend got away from us - I teach a set of online high school courses and as I've been working full time this summer, WHILE having a lot of students online in scramble mode as they need their marks for the fall, this week was an adjusting to a new time management situation ... beyond which, it wasn't a particularly newsy week on any front ...

Except for TNA's Victory Road PPV. With several strong matches, a few titles changing hands, a rare Ric Flair in-ring appearance, and the furthering of the 'They' storyline with Abyss (and Vince Russo actually putting on his 'I can be a good booker' hat for a change), I definitely regret not having bought it, and intend to see if we can catch a replay later this week (anyone know if they do replays like WWE does?). TNA continues to impress this viewer who'd been turned off by their pushing of Sting, Booker T, Team 3D etc. over some of their younger, hotter talent and took this long to get back into it. Who knew that a Hulk Hogan-led regime would recognize the need to mix talented and prime veterans like Kurt Angle, Team 3D and Ric Flair with hungry, skilled talents like Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Matt Morgan (whose talented was totally wasted in the WWE with a stutter gimmick a few years back) and more. Kudos!

Well wishes

We'll have a lot more to say tomorrow night on "In This Very Ring"'s podcast, but I wanted to take some time this evening to send well-wishes to a few wrestlers undergoing medical supervision at the moment.

  1. To Rick Steamboat who is out of intensive care following a brain aneurysm; he is expected out of the hospital within the week, and to be at 100% within the month.
  2. To Triple H who underwent surgery today to rehab some pesky injuries.
  3. To Scott Hall who, per his own Twitter and Myspace, is hospitalized with double pneumonia.
Wishing all of the above a speedy and swift road to recovery.

Best wishes to Ricky Steamboat

Note: In This Very Ring was going to go up yesterday/this morning sometime but both Ari and LT have again been ill; it is just a summer cold and both are feeling better now, but Ari and I are both pretty drained. ITVR will go up sometime during the day tomorrow depending on the Little Tyke's naptime. It will be back to Thurs/Fri this week for sure, after playing catch up (and none too badly we think) post-Orlando. Thanks for your patience.

Meanwhile though we do want to wish a speedy continued recovery to Ricky The Dragon Steamboat who suffered a brain aneurysm following Monday Night's Raw. After some time in Intensive Care, his condition is improving, which is excellent to hear. Be sure meanwhile and pick up your Rick Steamboat tribute DVD WWE was releasing this week (thus his appearance on Raw). A very talented wrestlers, one of the best pure babyfaces in the business, and work a peek.

Also wishing a quick recovery to CM Punk due to his (legit) arm injury.
