Jones did work Japan before WWE but he could only get work in Zero-One occasionally. I'm sure he can get some work based on the time honored tradition in wrestling where every dumbass promoter thinks he can be the one to get something out of the big steroid freak.

    Na-Na-Na-Na, Na-Na-NA-Na, Hey-Hey, GOODBYE!


Or to quote JR, na na....na na na na...na....na....

I shed no tears for Nathan Jones. WWE is a much better place with one fewer no-talent hoss running (or, more accurately, awkwardly striding to deliver a kick) around.

I hope that before spring we'll at least get the career retrospective DVD the man deserves.

That quote makes it sound like more than just fear of flying entered into his decision to quit.

This is the kind of news that makes being a wrestling fan worthwhile. Someone's going to have to pickup the combination 'Big Boot/Fall over' move now that he's gone.



Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.
[He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.]
Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
[Keith walks off]
Alexa: Ewww!

Well you know something, Mean Gene...
And Nathan Jones quits just when was on his way to becoming the greatest Australian wrestler in the WWE since Outback Jack.

I think this leaves the door open for Matt Morgan to be a breakout star. He has tremendous agility for a big guy and WWE is very high on him. Hopefully he is the one that benifits most from this as WWE can focus more on his growth and development because he is still very new to the game.



and thats all i have to say about that!

I think we're all missing the obvious: A-Train replaces Jones, and no one misses a beat.

Also, I'd be surprised if this sticks. After what supposedly happened on the flight into Korea, he may just have been unnerved about flying back across the world. I wouldn't be surprised if after a short break they get things resolved and Jones is back snarling his way into our homes every Thursday night.

Maybe he got a peek at CRZ`s results from the RSPW Awards and realized he was beating out Nash in all the "Worst" Catagories, which shamed him into retirement.

He had ring presence, and certainly looked scary. Of course, he was a joke on the stick, though.

Funny, of course, he took off when the tour hit Australia, huh?

Where to next? Well, wasn't he on WWA for a bit before joining Vince?

No one's used the word "1bullshit" yet. I guess 'cause we're all so anxious for this to be true. In any event, I won't miss him. His vacancy creates oppotunity for others to step up.

Not to be morbid, but personally I don't get the whole 40 guys on a plane thing. Think about what'd happen if that plane went down with half the fucking ROSTER on it. I mean, Jesus. I know plane crashes aren't that common, but if I was a rich wrestler I'd be chartering flights. Spring for the extra tickets Vince, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

I'm thinking right now about George from Seinfeld asking the same question about other sports teams all flying together, which is actually something I've wondered about since I was about 5. I mean, you know it's going to happen *eventually*, and when it does, everyone except for Hogan's My Dad, Seinfeld writers, and myself will be saying "If only we had some clue...".

Kind of off-topic, but MLB has a 'doomsday scenario' in place should such an event happen, drafted after the Angels' team bus crashed in 1990 with luckily only a few minor injuries. If more than ten (I think) players are lost from the roster due to some kind of wild tragic circumstance (not just regular injuries), then MLB has an in-season dispersal draft to fill the spots. Each team gets to protect twenty players of their 25 man roster, and can't have more than one guy taken from their team. Of course, if it happens in-season, the tragic team forfeits all games until this draft and re-rostering takes place.

In the case of WWE, if half the roster was lost, they'd just have to fill the show with nothing but non-wrestlers and the McMahon family. Wait a sec....

Wasn't he? WASN'T HE?!

Come on! Don't you remember the blockbuster trade of Perry Saturn and The Godfather to WWA for WWA Champion Nathan Jones? Which, in turn, led to the blockbuster Sting/Luger match for the vacant WWA Title? Which Luger won, but Sting got back and then lost in another Blockbuster match, unifying it with the NWA title against Jeff Jarrett?

YOU DON'T REMEMBER?!?!

I don't particularily blame you....



Wisconsin Badgers: 7-5 (Music City Bowl, eh? Oh well, I'll take it. A bowl is a bowl.)

Minnesota Vikings: 7-5 (Identical records! Honestly, I didn't see the blowout by the Rams, so I won't comment except to say: Ha Ha, Green Bay!)
