Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-
There was an error listing Jen Robinson's e-mail yesterday (and column
title!) in her article, it should be jenwrestlingonline@... and not
the one listed if you sent any feedback. That's what happens when you send
the newsletter drunk. Just kidding, I was sober, which makes things even
more sad! :)

> MAIN EVENT FOR JUDGMENT DAY SET- The WWE Heavyweight title will be on the line at Judgment Day as the
reigning champion Triple H will defend the gold against Randy Orton in a
steel cage match. The announcement was made yesterday exclusively on WWE.COM
following the 'blackout' from RAW. After the show ended, Regal proceeded to
announce to the fans that they too don't deserve to see an ending for this
match so he called it off. Orton quickly left the scene and Triple H acted
angry to play up the angle.

> HULK HOGAN CAUGHT RUBBING HIS DAUGHTER'S ASS...LITERALLY!- A couple of months ago Brooke Hogan was pissed at her dad for having a
secret relationship with her best friend behind everyone's back. After a few
blogs bashing her daddy, Brooke started to feel better about the situation
and now it all seems right with the world. Their relationship is so fine
that she even let her daddy rub her, umm, err, ass and legs by putting some
type of oil while relaxing by the pool. Creepy. The two were joined by
another busty blond who's name is unknown. Maybe he's screwing her too. We
have ten high res pictures of big daddy Hogan helping his daughter out at

//->> THE CHAIR SHOT
By Kevin I. Dodge -[kidodge@...]-
Well, King of the Ring is over, and pretty uneventful. Backlash is done and
no big surprises there either. So I'm going to think outside of the ring for
this issue. Hope ya'll don't mind.
With as much terrific wrestling going on world wide, I'm still amazed at the
stupidity of some of the backstage antics. And nothing bigger then Michael
PS Hayes. Michael, how ignorant can you be. An eyewitness at the party said,
"Hayes was up on stage, drunk, singing badly and swaying all over the place.
It's the same thing he did at Stephanie McMahon's wedding to Triple H. Only
this night didn't turn out so well for him." The eyewitness claims that
later that night, Hayes was ribbing 36-year-old 390lb SmackDown wrestler and
former Strongman winner Mark Henry, saying that his lack of success on WWE
TV was due to him "not being black enough." Hayes then added, "I've got
soul, brother. I'm more of a n***** than you are!" The two then got into a
brief physical altercation which was quickly broken up by other wrestlers
who were nearby. Henry talked to WWE management about the situation and
Hayes was promptly suspended.
Hayes was suspended for 60 days. Now all kinds of reports are coming out
about Hayes having a history of stupid crap like this. Well, I will admit I
am a Michael Hayes fan and a huge Freebird fan. Maybe that kind of biases me
a little. But, I really don't think Hayes is a racist. I think he is very
ignorant and insensitive on matters of such. I don't think he really
understands the repercussions that words like that have. There really is no
room in wrestling, or the world for that matter, for such ignorance. Sure
all of us know jokes that make fun of one race or another. Unlike a lot of
people I don't find humor to be racist. Most humor is just pointing out the
funny things in real life that most people will overlook. But, not
everything is funny there, Michael. I hope on your 60 days off you can work
on your tact, professionalism, and maybe your drinking. Especially since you
have a history of your mouth gets real stupid after you've thrown back a
As far as Mark Henry, I normally would say, it's a joke. But in this case I
think Mark did the right thing. Nobody's work environment should have to
feel uncomfortable. Sure Hayes was right as far as Henry's lack of success.
But it has nothing to do with how black he is. I just don't think they know
what to do with him. Hell, Henry really is the "Biggest" jobber in the WWE.
Sorry, Mark, but when was your last win against a significant opponent?
On a little side note, do you think the racial tension backstage is a little
bigger then what's being let on. In the past year numerous African American
stars have left the WWE. WWE has lost Boogeyman (out with a torn calf),
Marcos Cor Von, Booker T, Sharmell, Kristal Marshall, and Bobby Lashley. I
hope that race isn't the problem. They don't seem to have trouble getting
African Americans to work for them. They just brought back Crime Time, Ron
Now on to my next favorite show of stupidity this week. I'm talking about
Psychosis. A few weeks ago he was caught coming over the border to work a
wrestling show. There's nothing wrong with that. But the idiot was using
tourist paperwork instead of working papers. Apparently he didn't have
working papers. So he was caught and deported immediately. Now he claims he
is trying to get papers again so he can work indy show. I'm sure after this
getting the right paperwork probably won't be to easy.
And to top everything off we have the Warrior. Yes, the man who used to be
the Ultimate Warrior legally changed his name and is legally called Warrior.
Anyway, he has returned to wrestling. I'm talking about in the ring working,
too. On April 19th, the Warrior appeared in Madrid Spain at a NWE show. He
will be making his in ring comeback on June 25, against former WWE star and
current NWE champion Orlando Jordan. In a recent interview Warrior said that
at WrestleMania 25 he should wrestle Vince McMahon. Warrior, you really need
to pull your head out of whatever cloud you have it stuck in. What makes you
think you even deserve to watch WrestleMania much less be there and star in
it. I'm interested to see Warrior in the ring though. It's been what 10-12
years. And he wasn't that great in the ring then. He had huge charisma, but
in ring ability was pretty lacking. A lot like Hulk Hogan. So it will be
I know I'm probably way behind the times on this, but I'm really torn about
a character in TNA. I'm talking about Curry Man. I think it's absolutely
ridiculous. Every time his music starts and he hits the ramp I just want to
turn the channel. But now I have an even bigger problem with him. I just
recently came to find out that the man under the mask is one of my favorite
TNA wrestlers. Curry Man was a character that he developed and was a big hit
with in Japan. I'm talking about Christopher Daniels. Remember, he was fired
after the big briefcase match. So now I'm torn. Do I watch a wrestler I
like, or do I miss a character I hate? AAARRRGGG I'm so confused.
And on another little TNA side note. One of the wrestlers was recently on a
Hip Hop Album that has just been released. I'm talking about Sonjay Dutt.
The album is called: "The Underground Artist" and was released by rapper
Asoka. The album features Eminem, Dr. Dre's artist: Stat Quo, and 2Pac's
group The Outlawz.
I want to send a big congratulations out to RVD's wife, Sonya. She was
recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Well she has successful surgery last
week and is now recovering. It came as a shock to them, but thankfully it
was caught in time. Like I said in my last column, my grandfather just had a
cancerous growth removed from his neck. So I guess it just kind of hits a
soft spot with me. Plus I'm a huge RVD fan and I wish the best for him and
all his family.
Finally I want to send out my condolences to the family of Elevera Anoa'i
Fatu. Elevera recently lost a 7 year battle with cancer. She is the sister
of Afa, and the mother of wrestlers Ed Fatu (Umaga), Solofa Fatu (Rikishi)
and Sam Fatu (Tonga Kid). She left behind a total of 6 children, 30 grand
children, and several great grand children. If anyone would like to send
condolences, drop a line to Afa at Samoan1@...
Well, that's it for now. Feel free to drop me a line anytime. Until next
time, Stay Cool everyone.
