Inside The Ropes – Countdown to Chanukah

"Just when you think you have all the questions, I change the questions." -- Rod Roddy Piper, 1987

Welcome, everyone, to another EXCLUSIVE, JAM-PACKED edition of Inside The Ropes. I'm Canadian Bulldog, and as always, it is my legally binding duty to bring you the very latest news from around the wrestling world (except for what happens in Mexico; we don't cover that – too many masked guys). We have tons to get to this week, but first an important piece of business to take care of.

An Open Letter To Flee, Webmaster of

Hello, Flee. How are you? I trust all is well. Did you receive my Double Fudge Caramel Brownies in the mail yet?

The hot rumor going around right now is that you're going to be compiling a new IWC (for you idiots who don't already know, that's the Internet Wrestling Corporation) 1,000, and I would like to argue a case for why I should be number one.

I am easily the most-read and well-loved wrestling personality on the Internet, according to an independent study I conducted amongst longtime ITR fans and; Oldline Onslut webmaster Rick Scherer; and The Stone Movement's lead singer, Stuart Stone.

Fans everywhere love my patented catchphrases such as "Needs a little more Kain" and "Zack Gowan is WALKING." Wait a second, those aren't mine. Who the hell am I thinking of? Readers?

Anyways, the point is that no one else on the Internet is able to "deliver the goods" and I'm not just talking about Double Fudge Caramel Brownies, if you catch my drift. Who was the only person on the Web not only to predict Matt Hardee vs. Mayvin for Our Mageddon, but also the fact that the match probably wouldn't happen? Me. Who correctly predicted that Road Warrior Hog would die – years before it actually happened (granted, I didn't really give a specific time frame)? Me. Who predicted that Hulk Hollywood Hogan was really Captain America under a mask? Ok, that one wasn't me, but you get my point.

I ask, nay, demand, that my name be placed at the top of your crappy little very influential list. It's a win-win situation; not only do I get lots of free publicity, but I also get my name immortalized. In the words of former European Champion D-Von Brown, "I think you better recognize, girlfriend!"

Peace, out

Eric Bischov's Monday Night Raw shocked the living heck out of me when Co-Commissioner Mick Farley up and quit in the middle of the match!!! Obviously, this is was what's known in the business as a `shoot' and it means that the former ManKid, Dude, Where's My Love? and Cactus Jack Manson is gone forever from the WWE.

After months and months of being bugged by my Little Dog-A-Maniacs to watch NWA T and A, I finally made the plunge! Saw the commercial for it on my local Paper-View Preview channel, and who knows, I might even order it one of these days. Also, another PPV movie that looked pretty good was The Last S&M-erai. Anyone out there know what that film is all about?

Why are internet fans so down on Homosexual Chocolate these days? What has the arrogant youngster ever done to YOU? Granted, he's no Rodney Max in terms of workrate, but he's got his good qualities. Remember, you can't spell `smark' without the letters M-A-R-K!!!

Could there be trouble in paradise for the hottest young couple in wrestling (and no, I'm not referring to regular ITR readers Ryan and Liz)? It seems as though Tritch Stratus and Y J Stinger Chuck Jericho are headed for 'splitsville', just because of the whole having-a-bet-that-he-could-sleep-with-her thing. Aw man! First J-Ho and Casey Affleck… and now this!!!

If you're anything like me (which means you're probably getting your fair share of women, heh, heh, heh), you've probably left your holiday shopping to the last minute AGAIN this year. Have no fear, though. If there's a wrestling fan on your wish list, and there probably is, here are a few gift suggestions to make for a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah or Kool Kwanzaa:

· What's the fastest rising fad this year? That's right – collectible statues whose heads bob up and down, seemingly at will. Now, you can have your very own Brock Lesnor Booblehead to add to your collection. These items are rare because they were accidentally painted green. They also have the word `Hulk' at the base to signify the time The Next Best Thing defeated Hulkstor and drank his blood, and then smeared it all over his stomach.

· Or, if indy wrestling DVD's are more your speed, then surely you'll want this Best Of Shark Guy DVD. Many fans know Good Ol' Sharky from his appearances in T and A and Ring of Horror, and this video is definitely work checking out (or so I've been told; I only have Betamax).

· How many times have you said you'd like to be just like former WWWF Champion Millionare Man Teddy Biase? Well, now you can, with the (un)official (un)authorized Million Dollars Man Starter Kit!!! It's YOUR chance to prove that everybody can be bought for a price. Muhahahahahaha!!!

· Finally, what IWC fans' holiday would be complete without this official Scott Keeth Action Figure? Not only are his thumbs poseable so you can put them down or in the middle, but it also comes with stickers to make your own star ratings!!!

So last week, we started an Exciting New Feature known as 'Point/Counterpoint'. This week, noted wrestling expert TJoyner09 has decided to supply the argument for a hearty debate:

WWE Needs To Stop Doing Comedy Sketches

By Tjoyner09

Hi, Bulldog. I think that the WWE should stop doing all these comedy sketches. It takes away from the product because when you're trying to get over guys like Goldberg as serious wrestlers, it gets undermined by the weekly antics of Hurricane and Rosey. Let Gewertz go write for a sitcom if that's what he wants to do. Comedy has almost no place in wrestling.

No, You're Wrong

By Canadian Bulldog

No, You're Wrong
Thanks For The Compliment
Peace, Out
P.S. Please be sure to vote for me in the upcoming awards and also in Flee's ICW 1,000!!!

If you have a subject you'd like to argue in 'The Great Debate' (formerly known as 'Point/Counterpoint'), email me at

Recently, I had the chance to speak with WWWE's greatest super-hero besides Super Rosey, none other than Hurricane Helmsley. What follows is the EXCLUSIVE, JAM-PACKED transcript, which may not be reprinted in any form without the expressed written consent of Major League Baseball:

H: Hello, Hurricanes box office.
CB: Stand back… up in the sky… it's a Hurricane!!!
H: I'm sorry?
CB: No, I'm the one who's sorry. Stealing your patented catchphrase and all. How are you today?
H: Who is this?
CB: Canadian Bulldog, Super Hero For Training. At your service. And ready to conduct an EXCLUSIVE, JAM-PACKED interview!!!
H: The Canadian Bulldogs… is that a new expansion team?
CB: Uh… no…
H: I think you have the wrong person. I'm…
CB: I know, I know. You're Sherman Helmsley, mild mannered reporter. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've seen your "shtick" before. Can we hurry this along? I kind of have a column to write…
H: I don't understand what you want from me…
CB: I hear ya. You give so much to this business, and take so little. You are very generous.
H: Uh… thanks?
CB: Now then… question number one: Which character do you prefer playing better – the gay pop star from Five Count or your current gay superhero persona?
H: WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR (Censored by legal department) PROBLEM, KID???
CB: I believe the phrase you're looking for is… "Wassupwithdat?"
CB: Oh… I have no doubt you have big box office appeal. No one's doubting that…
CB: Oh, that's your game, is it? You'll only allow me to finish the interview if I buy tickets to the live event? Well, forget that, PAL! I'm Canadian F'ing Bulldog. The wrestling columnist of the year, according to Flee. And I don't take crap from ANYONE. You can take your Hurri-Powers and stick them where the sun don't shine, BEE-YOTCH! This interview is OVER!!! (Hangs up)
H: Wassupwithdat?

Nice job bro, the interview was good as always. Plus, the no your wrong email had me cracking up especially for some reason...

I’m home from work. This is no reason to celebrate. I am sick and rather than improving it seems to be progressively getting worse – on the LAST week prior to my two week vacation.
