It is a sad day in the pro wrestling world. Hall of famer, Jim Ross, has announced his retirement after 20+ years of service to focus on his personal business endeavors.
Jim has called some of the most memorable matches in WWE history incuding the epic and iconic hell in a cell match between Mick Foley and The Undertaker. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007 by his long-time friend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Fans everywhere thank him for his many years of service and wish him well.
All I have to say is “AS GOD AS MY WITNESS, HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!”
PS- Nicest guy in person and he loves his fans!
Don’t sleep on the WWE. Last week Hall of Famer Jim Ross met with the NFLPA concerning a potential deal that would see ex NFL players have the chance to join the sports entertainment company. This is a smart move for multiple reasons. The physical build of NFL athletes and WWE superstars are very similar. While I’m aware wrestling is fake, the mindset needed to excel in these fields are also very similar. Throw in the fact that many former football players, including The Rock, Ron Simmons and Bill Goldberg, have become household wrestling names, and you have a recipe for success. In case you didn’t know, the Average Nobodies are huge football and wrestling fans. Once we heard the news of a possible collaboration, we sprinted to the liquor store, grabbed personal 30s, and started to develop wrestling personas for former NFL greats. Imagine Barry Sanders as a high flying luchador, or Ryan Leaf as a former quarterback turned crackhead. The possibilites are endless! Without further ado, here are the 4 newest additions to the WWE roster:
a.k.a Flutie Pebbles
a.k.a Flutie Scrambles
a.k.a The Little Giant
a.k.a The Mist
a.k.a The Brothers Grimm
Miguel channeling his inner Hulk Hogan
“Miguel’s career in music may be over after this freak accident tonight at the Billboard Awards, but we’re sure he has a future in the WWE.
Here’s two women who bore the brunt of his failed stage dive attempt (or was it failed? What was he trying to do?) and were quickly shuffled away from the scene. The one on the right takes a shoe to the head; the one on the left gets the full guillotine leg drop action to the neck. …meanwhile, finished the song as if nothing had happened.” – Deadspin
First off, let me start by saying, that was the best leg drop I have seen since Hogan fought The Rock at Wrestlemania X8. Just absolute flawless execution and form coming from the R&B sensation.
Now on to why i’m pissed.
This is a classic case of the rich getting richer. Not only does this guy have an amazing singing voice but now he probably has a good chance of appearing on WWE. Come on now! I fake wrestle with my friends all the time and probably have a better repertoire of moves. It doesn’t mean you’re not gonna see me chumming it up with big Vince anytime soon. Miguel, I appreciate the effort, but leave the wrestling to the pros…and to me, drunk on a friday night.
P.S. That lady has to have a concussion right?
