Jimmy Uso whose real name is Jonathan Fatu, was arrested Thursday at 3:14 am. His blood alcohol level was .180 this was more than twice the legal limit (.08) said the Tampa Police department. Jimmy is the son of former WWE superstar Rikishi; they both come from a legendary wrestling family, Samoan Ano’i. We don’t know these men on a personal level, but does the long wrestling schedule or is it the punishment these men endure on a daily bases, what causes or drive them to substance abuse? In my opinion each person handles their stress level differently, so who are we to judge tem.
This past weekend, we met Maria Kanellis and Tiffany at Sport Heroes and Legends. I am going to give you a quick Bio on both of these WWE Divas. Maria Kanellis is a former WWE Diva that placed fifth in the Raw Diva Search, in 2004. She was given an opportunity as a back stage interviewer. Maria won a Slammy Award in 2009, for Diva of the Year, but in my opinion she is famous for the April 2008 Playboy cover. This is one of my favorite pictures of Maria, because you can see one of her greatest attributes.
Tiffany was a contestant in the 2007 WWE Divas Search. Like Maria, she made it to the final 8, but was the fourth Diva eliminated. She was still given a developmental contract. Tiffany made her debut in FCW in 2007. She is better known as the on screen Assistant General Manager for ECW, under Theodore Long. In 2010 she made her way to SmackDown and eventually gained a Women’s Championship match against the then Champion Michelle McCool. Tiffany was released in August 2010. I really don’t recall Tiffany, but she was great when we met her at Sport Heroes and Legends.
We met Joanie “Chyna” Laurer at Sport Heroes and Legends this past weekend. She was one of the largest attractions the WWE had during the Attitude era. She was labeled the “Ninth Wonder of the World” which opened many doors for her. Chyna was a member of the greatest stable in wrestling history, DX. She was the first and only female wrestler to ever hold the WWF Intercontinental Championship on two different occasions. Chyna was the first women to compete in The Royal Rumble and she also qualified for the 1999 King of the Ring. She held the WWF Women Championship, and competed against female wrestler such as Lita, Ivory and Trish Stratus, whom are Hall Of Fame bound in my opinion. She also wrestled men the likes of Mick Foley, Jeff Jarrett and Chris Jericho, just to name a few. She posed for Playboy in 2000 and now stars in pornographic movies. The fact is that Chyna has accomplished a lot in a so call “man” sport. I will always remember her as the “Ninth Wonder of the World” and if you’re not down with that I have two words for you, SUCK IT!!

The most must see WWE Superstar was released last Monday night on Raw. This situation is a “work” and I feel this storyline will bring fans back to wrestling. R-Truth and The Miz are the hottest superstars the WWE has on their roster. I must admit that I was not happy when R-Truth & The Miz started to pair up, but it has grown on me, their name ‘The Awesome Truth’ is hot and their entrance song is cool. The real question is what is going to happen next Monday night on Raw? Who is going to bring them back to WWE? I believe this story line will set up a traditional Survivor Series match for them, vs. The Rock, John Cena, Triple H and forth member. I am not sure who will join The Miz’s team. They will need some pretty strong backing so it will be a shocker if CM Punk joins that team. I am sure the person behind this whole situation is Stephanie and/or her dad, Vince McMahon. The fact of the matter is that we can't wait to see what will happen next. The WWE has found something and they better capitalize on it.

Hello again wrestling fans. My family and I met three former WWE Divas at Sports Heroes and Legend which is located in Staten Island, New York. We met Joanie “Chyna” Laurer, Maria Kanellis, and Tiffany. It took us an hour to get there; as we arrived we saw a Wrestling ring set up in the back parking area, apparently we were in the right place. The line wasn’t long and we got our autographs quickly. The pricing was good, because they had a VIP package for $75.00 that included one photo up and an autograph of each one of the Divas. The only things that stop me from getting more memorabilia autograph were that any additional items had different prices. Chyna was $20, Maria was $15, and Tiffany was $10.Tiffany was very approachable. She gave us conversation and actually posed for a picture. Chyna was also really nice, I told her about the time we met Triple H & her in Brooklyn years ago, and she also thanked us for coming to meet her. Over all this was a good experience. If you want to see the items autographs check out our photo gallery on this site.

The Diva of the week is Joanie Laurer, better known as Chyna. We are going to meet her and two other former WWE Divas, Maria Kanellis and Tiffany. We are heading to Sports Heroes and Legend which is located all the way in Staten Island. This is our first time attending an event here, is it going to be an experience.
Hugh Jackman is the Broski of the week, but he is also credited for punching the US Champion, Dolph Ziggler in the mouth, during the match on Raw last week. Apparently Ziggler suffered a broken jaw, is it a storyline or is it for really? If you watch the match you can see Jackman doesn’t pull back his punch. Not only did Zack Ryder win a match on Raw he also got Jackman on is Internet show, what a great week for Woo Woo Woo Kid.
WOO WOO WOO, YOU KNOW IT BRO!

After 15 long years Mark Henry has become World Heavyweight Champion, by defeating Randy Orton on Night of Champions. It was a well deserve victory. Mark Henry has paid his dues and I hope the WWE keeps the title on him for a while. Can he make the title mean something? Henry is an old school wrestler that has been there since the “Attitude Era”, he has experience wrestling at its highest peak. All of this won’t make a difference because on less Henry makes a huge impact as a champion; he will drop the title to Sheamus. In my opinion Henry has gained a promotion, because the WWE feel confident that he can put Sheamus “over”.

As all of you have already heard Stacy Keibler is dating George Clooney and very one is afraid that Clooney will eventually drop her like a sack of potatoes. The Divas picture of the week, demonstrates the skills Stacy has acquired during her time in the WWE so Clooney you have been warn. Her lovely long legs should be registered as deadly weapons.
Hello again wrestling fans, I have just heard great new for true fans of “Wrestling”. Form ROH World Tag Team Champion, Claudio Castagnoli a member of the “kings of Wrestling” along with Chris Hero has announced that he is part of Florida Championship Wrestling, via Twitter. For those who are not aware of this, FCW is the official developmental territory for the WWE. He has also changed his Twitter bio. His new name reads Antonio Cesaro, which can passably be the name he will wrestle under, for the WWE. This is great new because Castagnoli is a great in-ring performer. We haven’t heard anything concerning Chris Hero for the time been, but I have my fingers cross that his will join his partner in the near future.

|Triple H & CM Punk|
The last segment on Raw was the final face to face show down between Triple H and CM Punk. They had an awesome promo. Let’s be cleared, this is a work shoot that is going to put asses in the arena seats and of course higher PPV buy rates. The firing of Kevin Nash is also a work, because he signed a legends contract earlier in the year. They both went in hard, talking about past offences that occurred behind the sense. Punk called out Triple H & Vince, on the fact they believe that only body builders should be in wrestling and how the WWE is considered the “Land of the Giants”. Triple H also confesses that he believed that John Cena didn’t have “anything to offer this business” earlier in his career. As CM Punk begins to drop the “pipe Bomb” on Triple H, his microphone gets cut off, after the second attempt to speak on another mic Punk Lays him out. The fact is that the WWE is winning back the older fans with this new story line, in which we will probably see Nash interfere in the match on Night of Champions. This outcome will keep us, the fans, interested in the new product.

Hello wrestling fans, I wanted to talk about the heels of the WWE. I started to notice that the heels have become the bitches and cowards of the WWE. I know what you're thinking; the heels have to get the babyfaces over. I understand that, but it’s still ridiculous the way they're doing it. The Greatest heels of all time, that I can think of, off the top of my head, are Ric Flair and Triple H. Ric Flair would get his ass kicked all over the ring and somehow end up winning at the end. It made you either love him or hate him. He also had the Four Horsemen to have his back if need be. Triple H took over that persona with his stables like Evolution and DX. But at the same time, he's the "Cerebral Assassin," so he was never a scared bitch. When The Miz became champion, I truly believed we were going to finally have a new top heel, which is awesome on the mic, and be that heel that always gets away with the belt. Not only did they make his title reign short, they made him a coward as well. He always ran away and let Alex Riley get beat up. If anything, it pushed A-Ri to be a tougher guy, and maybe that’s why the fans love him so much. Not to mention the fact that he made The Miz his bitch because like I said, the heels are cowards now. They made Christian win the title by DQ, and then tried to get out of facing Randy Orton on WWE SummerSlam using his lawyer’s blah blah blah. Again, I repeat myself coward. Basically all I’m asking is where are all the top heels? Everybody can’t be babyfaces and the top guys can’t always be babyfaces. You got to have a balance between good and evil. I want to see a super villain that can go toe-to-toe with the super hero and make an epic match. Creative team in WWE, STEP IT UP!!

Hello wrestling fans. Today I am going to talk about "imaginary brass rings," which is a quote from CM Punk's memorable shoot promo on WWE Raw on June 27th, 2011. The phrase stuck out to me. I started to analyze it and realized that the WWE likes to give out a lot of "imaginary brass rings." It's quite obvious too. We have a high flying legend like Rey Mysterio have probably the three shortest WWE/World Championship title reigns in the history of the WWE. There's The Miz, who is already talking live on Raw saying that he's in the "back burner" of the WWE when he is the most "must-see" WWE Superstar. Jack Swagger is a former two times World Champion and they're not really doing anything with him. The whole Vickie Guerrero thing just started, so we'll see what happens. Sheamus is such a great character, former WWE Champion and now he's a babyface. Which is surprising but so far it works. I’m curious to see what’s in cmstore for Sheamus. And there's many more, but I guess Christian said it best on WWE Super SmackDown. He said something like "I don’t need the World Championship. My peeps already know I'm awesome." Back in the 80s when Hulk Hogan was king of WWE, guys like Jake “the Snake” Roberts, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, etc. didn’t need a championship to get over with the fans. It’s the same as today, it’s just different. We live in a world full of materialistic egos, and the way to be the top guy in WWE is to be the WWE/World Champion. I once posted on the WWE Facebook page how "the championship doesn’t mean shit anymore, anyone could be champion, and the new belts look like crap," and what do they do? They delete my post. Bottom line is that the WWE does not know talent. CM Punk shitted on John Laurinaitis because they don’t know what a talented wrestler (not superstar) is. They care more about the look, then the actual skills. Another thing, to be honest, I don’t believe anyone should become champion after being in the WWE for less than a couple of years. You have to earn the championships. Look at the guys who have become champion in their short time in WWE, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Great Khali, etc. and now Alberto Del Rio. Am I happy that he's champion, yes but I know he's only carrying the belt for now, until Cena wins it back. That’s what it means to have the "imaginary brass ring." It means you're carrying the belt until we give it back to one of the top guys and make them 147th time WWE Champion. Of course I’m exaggerating but you get what I mean. WWE's creative team needs to step it up.

Super SmackDown aired on Tuesday night and it was a pretty good show. The Main event was a cage match between World Champion Randy Orton and Christian. This was an excellent match, because we had two veterans in the ring that know how to keep the audience on the edge of their seat. I am sick and tired of the way the WWE is treating Christian. He left the WWE and joined TNA in 2005. At this particular time TNA knew what they were doing, they made Christian a main event player and also a two time NWA World Champion, they even brought in Tomko as enforcer. Back to present time, the WWE is shitting all over this guy because he went elsewhere and made a name for himself, winning the title, dropping it the next night, begging for a title shot, and the most degrading thing of all time winning the World title by spitting in a man’s face. I mean really, if the WWE doesn’t want him as the World Champion, then keep him as a mid-card performer, why make him look like an ass. As you can tell Christian lost again, then Mark Henry hit the ring to take out the champion, which means that Christian is now out of the title hunt.
There were about five matches on the show. Yes, you are reading this correctly, five matches in a two hour show. There was a match that featured Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox vs. Beth Phoenix & Natalya which ended when Phoenix hit her finisher on Alicia Fox. John Cena took out Wade Barrett, after hitting Barrette with his array of moves, you know, his famous shoulder block, with his “you can’t see me” and then hits the attitude adjustment. Sin Cara defeated Daniel Bryan in a very good match; after the match was over Sin Cara turned on Bryan and left him laid-out in the ring. Sheamus took on The Great Khali; this match was advisedly made to display the awesome power Sheamus posses. Sheamus took out the biggest competitors in the WWE, which means the next man that will suffer the wrath of the Celtic Warrior will be Mark Henry. Henry has proven that he is a force to be wracking with, by slamming Sheamus on to a steel step. This will be interesting because Henry may defeat Orton at Night of Champions. Sheamus in opinion is the next man in line for the World title. The sad thing about the WWE titles is that the WWE itself is passing them around like a cheap bottle of Whiskey.

|Kurt Angle and The Wrestling Fans Review Stuff|
I really never understood how great people have demons within them. One of the best wrestlers in the world has been arrested for driving under the influence. 42 year old Kurt Angle was arrested by Virginia State Troopers, after they responded to a 911 call of a vehicle swerving in between lanes on I-66. TMZ reports that the former 1996 Olympic gold medalist and current TNA World Champion, was released on a $2,000 bond. On a personal level I am a big fan of Angle’s and wish he can overcome his troubles.

The Chay-Lites is one of my favorite weekly YouTube videos, and I recommend you to follow him.
This picture of the week features one of the most important people in my life, my lovely wife. It was her birthday and instead of heading for dinner or something like that she headed to a huge line to meet Stone Cold Steve Austin. She told Steve that it was her B-day, he didn’t believe her so she pulled out the Birthday Card. Steve signed the card and started to flirt with my WOMAN, WTF, I voiced my disapproval and his comment was “I can snap your neck just like that” while he snap his finger. Everyone around him, including me laughed, but deep inside I cried because I couldn’t jump over the table and smack bitch out his bold headed ass. This is a true story ask my wife if you recognize her at any wrestling signing event. I was threaten by Stone Cold Steve Austin, but the part of me getting mad was joke I was proud that I have a hot lady on my arm ;-)
