I used to HATE him as a kid. Then I saw his first shoot (where Cornette face originated) and I was hooked. He did an amazing shoot with the late Percy Pringle. They talked about what a dump the place was, crawling with rats. But the health department always gave Fritz a pass. Corny says the French fries were the best he's ever had. Percy smartened him up by telling him they never changed the grease and when they finally emptied the fryers they found rat bones. Corny's reaction was gold.

My brother wanted to be a wrestler. We were smarks, I was 10 he was 19. My dad arranged for him to get a workout at the Sportatorium against his favorite wrestler, Maniac Mike Davis. Davis stretched the fuck out of him but my brother wouldn't quit. Finally Davis said it's over and he was proud of him. But my brother never went back. But he can say he got in the ring at the Sportatorium.

We saw Mike shortly before his death at a card in Waco. It was at the Coliseum and it was an NWA ring & programs. We had no idea the NWA was still a thing. Maybe 500 ppl in a 8,500 seater. Turns out this was when Crockett Jr. was trying to get back into business and this was a show put on by him and Joe Pedicino. Waco also got one of WCW's last house shows drew 900 people. And Jimmy Hart tried to run his XWF here with a pretty good card but it was cancelled due to less than 100 tickets sold.



Is this it? About the fries.

That's it! Below that is the whole 3 hour shoot with Corny & Percy that's incredible. Theres another one with him and Bobby Heenan that's amazing.

I've actually considered writing a book about the Sportatorium before. It's history is just fascinating. It was originally to be Texas' version of the Opry and I believe it was George Reeves that had a piece of it. Hence the in the round setup. Elvis played there. They wound up defaulting on the place and that's when a promoter bought it and brought Fritz in as his top heel. This group used to run spot shows throughout Texas. In Waco they ran out of an old furniture store downtown and the matches were broadcast live on the radio.

Usos/New Day match, minus a few botches, was overall a pretty good match. I just wish the ending wasn't such a cop out.

I have mixed feelings about the Women's Ladder Match ending.

Who's everyone's prediction for the Men's Ladder Match?

Corbin or Styles. They won't push Nakamura that fast, and I think KO will settle for being US champ long enough for another feud or two.

I agree with Corbin being one of the favorites for it. I was thinking Nakamura as the other possibility though.

This PPV has been pretty mediocre so far. Nakamura gets stretchered out to start the match.......

I think I figured out why some of you aren't down with nakamura yet.
it's the fucking camera angles. when he was in nxt they didn't use as many cameras. all of his moves looked vicious. whomever is producing the main roster shows must be having a seizure. one bad cut to another and when they finally show the kick or whatever, some of them look weak. he made me a fan on nxt. going to see him this saturday.
he also needs someone to talk for him. someone like.............

jim cornett.

I'm not a fan of his in either NXT or Smackdown but agree about the camera angles and Cornette but I think pairing him w/ Heyman would be most effective! Many newer fans are not aware of the genius of Cornette but everybody knows Heyman!

During the segment where they brought back Maria Kennelis & Mike Bennett, I thought Brother Love was going to come out cuz of their gimmick!

I know he was in St. Louis for a personal appearance where MITB was held so when they came out with their "LOVE" gimmick, I thought Brother Love might come out! I was ready to mark out but then.....

Strowman's back, and sure enough, he challenged Reigns to an Ambulance match. No surprise there.

You have go to be kidding me. Those guys were fucking OVER. Guess WWE will push Cass and slowly bury Enzo, even though Enzo has potential to be a strong face.

And now they're going to have the blowoff at another generic PPV. Would have been better to build it up and have the blowoff at SummerSlam or Mania, but that's classic WWE hot shot booking for ya.

BREAKING:

Jim Cornette has been served with an order of protection that includes accusations of stalking by Vince Russo. His statement is below. And he's offering autographed copies of the order starting this weekend :lol:

haven't been to a live event in well over 10 years so I went to smackdown last night. I went JUST to see nakamura and aj.
so of course neither one was there. nor was randy or dolph. but they did bring in seth rollins which was a nice surprise.
a few things I took away from it:
- the girls are WAY better looking live than on tv. I was sitting second row ringside.
- the fans are idiots that live in their mom's basement. the comments from some of them during the matches were just stuff they've heard on tv before but didn't know when to use them.
- jinder is huge. the two brothers that come out with him are so small they make him look even bigger.
- charles robbinson and the ring announcer guy REALLY play to the fans in the ring and out. they looked like they had the most fun out of anyone.
- they all worked hard. nobody took the night off. becky lynch had her typical botches.
