Why were they let go by the WWF in the first place?


Because Mosh wasn't over, and Thrasher was obscenely out of shape.

Thrasher doesn't need the money, he and his wife got a settlement from the Atlanta Braves when his wife got hit by a baseball.

Speaking of Blackman, what is his current WWE contract status? I know he's been out of wrestling for awhile, but was he ever officially released or fired by WWE?

Off all these guys mentioned, the only two I miss are Blackman and Shamrock.

But not all that much. I'd say I miss them about the same as the late Crash Holly - fun to watch, in small doses, OK if I or they miss a week, etc.

I miss Owen a heck of a lot more.

Gangrel is touring the UK at the moment with David Flair and Luna Vachon.

D'Lo Brown will be in the UK this April wrestling for the FWA.

As for the Godfather, if the retro Undertaker has returned, can we expect to see Papa Shango turning up anytime soon.......???

Indies are the hundreds of wrestling promotions which are NOT the WWE. Basically, once you get a TV deal and start getting more mainstream, you arent considered an "indie" anymore. I don't think there's any other official designation other than that. If you are really into the pro-wrestling scene, checking out local indie promotions in your area would probably be a worthwhile use of your time and money. I've been to a few, and while mostly it is like a 1st grader's drawing as opposed to WWE's Disney-esque production quality, theres usually good action, good stories being played out, and smaller, more intense crowds.



David Spade teaches us an Important Lesson:

Joe Dirt: So you're gonna tell me that you don't have no black cats, no roman candles, or screaming mimis?
Kicking Wing: No.
Joe Dirt: Oh come on man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?
Kicking Wing: No, I don't.
Joe Dirt: Yer gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?
Kicking Wing: No... because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.
Joe Dirt: Well that might be your problem, it's not what you like, it's the consumer.

    Well, you could say that (Owen) getting bumped down from #2 main event level IC champion to forgotten Nation flunky to Blue Blazer was a gradual punishment. It certainly wasn't a promotion.


I actually heard he was punished, because, when he was tagged with Jeff Jarrett, he refused to do an angle where he would try and seduce Debra McMichael. I guess he didn't want his kids to think he was being immoral to his wife and their mother. That's why he had to become the Blue Blazer again. Vince has always had a history with that. I guess that's why Adrian Adonis had to dress like a woman, and Dusty Rhodes had to wear yellow polka dots.

Last night I saw Gangrel (as Vampire Warrior) and Luna in a squash match on a Sunshine Network telecast for a Maximum Pro Wrestling out in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Now not that I think anyone cares about them but I saw the Vilanos on Portland Wrestling... And by the way... oh yeah it's quality... high quality... If I mute it then it isn't so bad... but the Heel stable, the Army of Darkness, it looks like a bunch of Nu-Metal rejects, a luchador, and managed by a large guy who is wearing a mesh shirt, and thankfully other stuff over it.

Still it's good to see a J-random citing of a mid to low card guy on a local wrestling fed.

On the plus side the local sceen has gotten better from the predominately 40ish paunchy guys.

"That's why he had to become the Blue Blazer again. Vince has always had a history with that. I guess that's why Adrian Adonis had to dress like a woman, and Dusty Rhodes had to wear yellow polka dots."

And yet the Blazer was scheduled to win the Intercontinental Title on the night Owen died. AND they were monkeying around with bringing the Blazer back before Owen had anything to do with Jeff and Debra. I don't think there's a lot of credence to that story.

So I shouldn't believe everything I read re: Gangrel being in the UK, though I know he has been very recently. Apparently, on the same tour Luna Vachon was either refused permission to leave the US or enter the UK - not sure which or why. Can anyone throw any light on this?

He had a mutual parting of the ways with WWE, due to his neck problems. He's not under contract with them at this time.

D'Lo Brown the first ever Euro-continental champ.

But he doesn't count.

I would think that they planned the title switch based on who was selected. I'd guess Benjamin, probably Batista, and maybe Christian would have warranted a title change, and anyone else would have been out of luck.
