As the days go by, we face the increasing inevitability that we are alone in a godless, uninhabited, hostile and meaningless universe. Still, you've got to laugh, haven't you?
Well you can expect a few juicy mugshots of Steve Corino at the Smoking Gun in a few days. They always have stuff posted like that.
And I don't blame Dusty Rhodes. I blame Steve Corino himself. IT'S ALL A SCAM!! He's probably sweating bullets right now, due to the fact he's got a barbed wire match with Terry Funk at MLW HYBRID HELL tommorrow night. So this is just his way of getting out of it. BASTARD!!

1Wrestling was contacted by Steve Corino and he wrote:
Steve Corino contacted 1Wrestling.com in regard to his arrest on 5/19 in Michigan on forgery and misdemeanor and felony access-device fraud charges. Corino made the following statement:
"It is absolutely not true. I am not guilty This is a situation involving my ex-girlfriend and I am confident that when we have the preliminary hearing on Monday, they will see there is no evidence to support the charges. Please tell everyone that my spirits are high and I look forward to my day in court."
Corino is in Florida and will make his scheduled barbed wire match with Terry Funk tomorrow for Major League Wrestling. He is scheduled to leave next Wednesday for his next Japanese tour with Zero-One and was informed the current situation will not affect him working the tour.
----- I hope it gets worked out because Steve Corino is fun to watch and I was shocked when I ead this cause allI could think is "what doesn't he make enough money?"
And yet another hero to children everywhere bites the dust. First Sosa, and now Corino.
Over 1400 posts and still never a Wiener of the Day!
Well you're in your little room and you're working on something good but if it's really good you're gonna need a bigger room and when you're in the bigger room you might not know what to do you might have to think of how you got started in your little room da da da
Steve Corino is one of the most stand up, real, dedicated people in this so-called sport. It doesn't matter why I know this. Safe to say this is all bullshit. The real tragedy is that this is the biggest news story about him.
In short, the man is a great guy that may never catch a break but still won't give up. Believe me. This ain't shit to him.
If Corino was smart (and from everything I've read, he seems like a pretty enterprising guy), he'd turn this into some sort of angle. Let's face it, he's had quite a bit of publicity from this over the last couple of days, and it would probably behoove him to get some coverage because of it.
He could start as a `Fugitive from the law' type character or something on the MLW show (at least I *think* that's where he is these days)... I could totally see Vince Russo buying that as a great idea for TNA as well and bringing him in for that.
The reason the WWE doesn't do stuff like that is because that would just end up with a .43 buyrate for WM20, plus the fact that ratings leading up to it would be around 1.2 or so. Neither guy can carry a show yet.
