A Modest Response: Wrestlemania Edition Part 1

This week we’re full of guest stars including Andy Mac, Rob Blatt and a special contest presented with Broken Dial chief, Shawn Smith in which you can win a free Ring of Honor DVD. I also have a strange, but serious suggestion for ROH Booker Gabe Sapolsky to help ensure better live crowds.

No ROH or Wrestlemania previews in this one though, check back later today for a Ring of Honor Roundtable and first thing tomorrow for a Wrestlemania Roundtable. All my thoughts on both shows will be within.

News of Honor

$10 ROH DVD Sale

This is big and important not least because included for the first time in the sale are two absolutely incredible, must see shows from 2006- Dragon Gate Challenge and, maybe ROH’s best show ever, Better than Our Best. Check my opinions on each show right here.

ROH Champion Takeshi Morishima is official for May 11 in Hartford and May 12 in NYC

Looks like the domination of Morishima on east coast shows will continue. These shows now feature KENTA, Marufuji, and Morishima. Keep them separate and give us three dream matches!

Mike Quackenbush to debut in ROH on 4/27 in St. Paul and 4/28 in Chicago

For those who don’t know Quack is a major indy star and one of the best performers on the indies not featured in ROH. He’s an indy mainstay and age and a physically demanding pace in the ring have taken their toll on Quack, but even with that said, this is creating great buzz in the indy community. He’s getting older, but still a great high flier and my personal favorite non-ROH indy worker. With some luck ROH will put him against Claudio; the two had absolute classics in Chikara and elsewhere in the indies and I’d love to see that live!

Jigsaw, Hallowicked, and Gran Akuma to debut for ROH on 4/27 in St. Paul and 4/28 in Chicago

Well, welcome to Ring of Honor, Chikara faithful. Chikara is a Philadelphia based, family friendly independent promotion that relies heavily on comedy and lucha libre. The wrestlers coming out of Chikara are generally quite good and I’m excited to see this group debut. Jigsaw is a good wrestler, Hallowicked is Delirious’s regular tag partner, and Gran Akuma is a short, stiff worker and has the makings of a major player. The good news keeps rolling.

A new member of the No Remorse Corps to debut this Saturday

I’d hope this will be a Chikara athlete or Chris Hero, but really, I trust ROH booker Gabe to come up with a quality idea.

Meet ROH wrestlers at the Detroit Beer Co. on 1529 Broadway in downtown Detroit on Saturday afternoon

Sounds like a nice way to spend the afternoon with some great talent. Most of the ROH locker are genuinely nice guys, especial Nigel McGuinness. Go visit. Tell them Pulse Wrestling sent you. For more information try this link.

WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony to be Midnight Saturday Night/Sunday Morning on USA

Worth watching if you’re indoors. The presenters always come off well and the old clips are nostalgic goodness.

The full Hall of Fame inductees are as follows:

Dusty Rhodes – to be inducted by sons Dustin and Cody Runnels
“Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig – to be inducted by Wade Boggs
Jerry “The King” Lawler – to be inducted by William Shatner
Nick Bockwinkle – to be inducted by Bobby “The Brain” Heenen
Mr. Fuji – to be inducted by Don Muraco
The Shiek – to be inducted by Sabu
Afa & Sika – to be inducted by Matt “Rosey” Anoa’i and Sam “Samu” Anoa’i
Jim Ross – to be inducted by Steve Austin

Nary a controversial pick to be found among this year’s entrants. Getting Heenan to present for Bockwinkle should be a major highlight.

TNA and NWA to split. Danielson is expected to become NWA Champion and defend at ROH shows, but Gabe is not yet contacted. NWA to copy the ROH business model

This won’t effect TNA, but if NWA promotes properly, with its name value, it could be a major threat to Ring of Honor. More as it develops.

Goldberg has announced he will likely be involved in a wrestling ppv, sources expect it to be TNA

Let’s see how much name value he has left. He might pop a buyrate, but if he won’t put over Joe, he’s of limited use.

Team 3-D will be tag champions by the end of May so that they can claim WWE, WCW, ECW, TNA, and NWA champion status

Impressive resume for such misfits, no?

Joey Mercury released from WWE

He became addicted to painkillers again while trying to get over breaking his face in a WWE match. Not a classy move by WWE right before Wrestlemania.

Originals vs. New Breed to end with the Originals losing and being taken off TV, besides RVD

The Originals are being blamed for ECW’s early lack of success even though the show has no ECW feel where their status would matter whatsoever. Glad to see the WWE are so in touch with reality.

Stephanie McMahon moves One Night Stand PPV from the Hammerstein Ballroom to Jacksonville because she’s worried Heyman will somehow sabotage it

“Paranoia, Paranoia everybody’s coming to get me.” If you want your name in next week’s column, just send the song title to that lyric.

Commentary on the televised

This is a new section in which I’ll give comments for whatever show I happened to see this week in quick little blurbs.

Raw

Neither Edge nor Orton seems like a face turn would help them.

Did you hear that pop for Punk? Sure, it was Chicago, but that was Austin-esque.

ECW

Blatt seriously makes the show better just by writing about it.

Burke can be really good. I don’t know about the Benjamin comparisons though. He has farther to go in the ring and already has the promos down.

Ugh, Edge is the best heel in the business. Him being on the face team annoys me to no end.

Impact

I haven’t watched in weeks and wish I didn’t again here.

The X-Division stuff was too fast and made everyone look weak. Big matches like that, when not given time, make it seem as if guys can be beaten by anything and don’t need to be worn down. Not an attitude you want to foster.

The post main event shenanigans were terribly done. Why did everyone come into the ring one by one? Are they retarded?

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla: Horror Business 10/21/06

I’m fairly new to the PWG product. There’s a lot to like although I don’t think the top card workers are as crisp as the ROH upper card guys. Mid-card wise, they beat ROH fairly easily though in terms of how everything fits together. That’s no mean feat.

I’m a big TJ Perkins, aka Puma, fan. He’s fast and crisp and tells a very good story. It was great to see him battle Nigel in Philadelphia for ROH and here he made Rocky Romero look really good.

Chris Bosh and Scott Lost are fantastic heels.

The Human Tornado simply isn’t ready. He’s over, but still looks green. He’s got a load of potential, though.

Davey Richards is a much better worker in PWG where he isn’t trying to conform to the ROH house style. He really needs to bring more of that style into Ring of Honor, but as a heel, I’m not sure where it would fit. He’s also not half bad on the mic.

The Kings of Wrestling were a fabulous team and need to be reunited yesterday. I don’t care if their breakup is a great story or not; they’re just better as a team.

It’s been noted elsewhere, but El Generico doesn’t have bad matches. Joey Ryan is legitimate and could at least upper card anywhere in the country. He has great charisma and a good look too.

Respondents of Honor: Contest for two ROH DVDs

Before we get to the contest, here’s a quick suggestion for the Ring of Honor staff. For about 20 minutes between the preliminary matches and the main show generic rock music plays. This does nothing to help keep the crowd excited for the show as they are left to their own devices, minds wandering. Well, one easy, completely free way to keep the fans involved is to play the entrance themes of former Ring of Honor stars. While waiting for an event, hearing the Godzilla Intro into The Champ is Here Joe’s theme), Miseria Cantare (Punk’s theme) or A Country Boy Can Survive (The amazingly appropriate theme of James Gibson) would get the crowd excited and ready for the show, creating a better environment for the crowd and an aura of excitement in the arena.

Now, on to the contest.

Here’s your chance to get your name in a column every week as a Respondent of Honor and win yourself a free Ring of Honor DVD courtesy of Pulse Wrestling and Broken Dial.

First off, in this part of the column Shawn M Smith and I will be discussing the top 5 Ring of Honor songs and the top 5 WWE songs of all time. From this list, whether you want to compete for the DVD’s or not, I’d like you to e-mail Shawn your vote on the best entrance song from each company.

From there, if you’d like to compete for the free DVD, write up, in one paragraph, why your song is the best entrance song from each company. If your song wins and you have the best write-up, as judged by Shawn and me, then you get a free Ring of Honor DVD. Goodluck and remember your email goes here.

Shawn M. Smith (10:37:42 PM): we should just alternate picks
Shawn M. Smith (10:37:53 PM): you start with number 5 greatest ROH Theme songs
Pulse Glazer (10:38:00 PM): well let’s decide on the 5 first
Shawn M. Smith (10:38:03 PM): boooo
Pulse Glazer (10:38:18 PM): lol 5 for roh
Pulse Glazer (10:38:21 PM): in no order since the order will be voted on, yes?
Shawn M. Smith (10:38:22 PM): okay
Shawn M. Smith (10:38:25 PM): right

Pulse Glazer (10:40:29 PM): A Country Boy Will Survive, Gibson’s theme, for one
Shawn M. Smith (10:40:31 PM): Nigel’s “Roll On” with London Bridge intro
Shawn M. Smith (10:40:54 PM): Disposable Teens
Pulse Glazer (10:41:03 PM): those are your 5?
Shawn M. Smith (10:41:19 PM): best 5 ROH songs ever, make me jump up every time
Pulse Glazer (10:41:35 PM): well, i’ll disagree, want to each do our own then?
Shawn M. Smith (10:42:02 PM): I saw yours
Shawn M. Smith (10:42:19 PM): I think we should argue more
Pulse Glazer (10:42:41 PM): hah alright
Shawn M. Smith (10:43:25 PM): I think that only one of us is qualified to talk about music, you can only talk about wrestling with authority; however, I would be louder, ignore your opinions, and make you cry
Pulse Glazer (10:43:55 PM): oh, since i need a fifth, i’ll go with Low Ki’s Fighters Passion into the instrumental into All Eyes on Me
Shawn M. Smith (10:44:01 PM): nice!

“Miseria Cantare” – AFI (CM Punk)

Shawn M. Smith (10:45:12 PM): that’s the numbah one ROH theme ever, it might even be the best Wrestling theme song ever
Pulse Glazer (10:45:51 PM): and yes, the sheer crowd response, the perfect length… it’s amazing.
Shawn M. Smith (10:46:18 PM): Right
Pulse Glazer (10:46:24 PM): the fact that it can be turned into a cheer mid match helps a lot
Shawn M. Smith (10:46:50 PM): I think it rules because it’s the only time that fat men from Piscataway are allowed to admit they know an AFI song
Pulse Glazer (10:46:56 PM): haha
Shawn M. Smith (10:47:07 PM): I sat next to Green Lantern one time
Shawn M. Smith (10:47:14 PM): …he was singing along
Pulse Glazer (10:47:18 PM): if you watch enough punk matches you can tell exactly when he’s going to yell “it’s clobberring time!”
Pulse Glazer (10:47:29 PM): and are you sure you want to admit you were close to GLF?
Shawn M. Smith (10:47:38 PM): Tracy and he had a conversation
Shawn M. Smith (10:47:45 PM): …he wouldn’t add me on MySpace though

“House of the Rising Sun” – The Animals (Jimmy Rave)

Shawn M. Smith (10:48:09 PM): Next song, “House of the Rising Sun”
Pulse Glazer (10:48:25 PM): House of the Rising Son is made for me by the interview with a vampire quote at the start

Shawn M. Smith (10:48:50 PM): nice
Pulse Glazer (10:50:51 PM): “Shall we begin like David Copperfield? I am born, I grew up. Or shall we begin when I was born into darkness?” How perfect.
Shawn M. Smith (10:51:33 PM): straight edge much?
Shawn M. Smith (10:51:39 PM): next song

“Ballad of Lacey” – Jimmy Jacobs (Jimmy Jacobs)

Pulse Glazer (10:51:53 PM): I insist Ballad of Lacey find its way on there
Shawn M. Smith (10:51:57 PM): Yeah
Shawn M. Smith (10:52:07 PM): “The fire burns….with a love that is true”
Pulse Glazer (10:52:29 PM): its the perfect gimmick song
Pulse Glazer (10:52:41 PM): “together we’re the match of the year”
Shawn M. Smith (10:52:54 PM): in what world WOULDN’T that song be a hit? It’s the funniest thing to happen on the ‘net since Matt Hardy’s “Scar Will Become a Symbol”
Pulse Glazer (10:53:03 PM): “you’re the american beauty and i’m kevin spacey, put me in your top 8 when you myspace me”

Shawn M. Smith (11:04:36 PM): [expletive deleted] Rod Strong…he didn’t even THANK me for the ROH interviews getting popular
Shawn M. Smith (11:05:26 PM): Personal Jesus is awesome
Pulse Glazer (11:05:32 PM): your voicemail makes me want to murder you.
Shawn M. Smith (11:05:44 PM): I wish it was the Depeche Mode version, but you have to pick and choose your battles, right?
Pulse Glazer (11:05:49 PM): and Personal Jesus is awesome. but Boondocks Saints intro makes it as an opening
Shawn M. Smith (11:05:53 PM): it’s the best voicemail ever
Pulse Glazer (11:05:57 PM): the Depeche Mode version not being it hurts
Shawn M. Smith (11:06:07 PM): that’s why it’s low, low, low on the list

Pulse Glazer (11:14:40 PM): “no where to run no where to hide!”
Shawn M. Smith (11:14:53 PM): GREAT SONG. I punched a friend one time, I was so happy to hear the song.
Shawn M. Smith (11:14:56 PM): seriously
Pulse Glazer (11:14:59 PM): Was it Widro?
Shawn M. Smith (11:15:03 PM): no
Shawn M. Smith (11:15:09 PM): I would NEVER lay a hand on him
Pulse Glazer (11:15:31 PM): Widro loves me. He promised me he wouldn’t sell my useless carcass to 411
Shawn M. Smith (11:15:46 PM): that was nice of him
Shawn M. Smith (11:15:58 PM): What was Ultimate Warrior’s theme?
