Emailer...we're not going to Pittsburgh this weekend for the Steelers-Jets game but will be glued to the TV Sunday for a NFL fan's dream day. I enjoyed following the Jets via HBO's Hard Knocks series but I have to step off the wagon this weekend and pull for the men in black and gold. J.D. and Lizzie Ross didn't raise a fool and with my lovely, Italian wife being a Pittsburgh native I have no issue cheering for the Steelers this Sunday evening. I hope the Steelers win so that we can make the easy drive to Arlington, Texas and watch them win a 7th Super Bowl.
I apologize to the Fink, Michael Cole and Taz, among others, in advance as I know they are devout Jets fans but they don't prepare gourmet, home cooked meals for me....among other perks.
If the Jets do beat Manning, Brady, and Big Ben in consecutive weeks, then the J-E-T-S deserve all the credit the gridiron world can heap upon them. If native Oklahoman Rex Ryan's boys make it to the Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas, I'll take my seat back on their wagon.
Chicago playing as the home underdog versus long time rival Green Bay has to grade on the Bears players and fans. The Monsters of the Midway will play pissed off but will that be enough to slow down arguably the hottest team in the NFC? This is a 'return' from the two teams first playoff game against each other in 1941.
Both conference championship games will come down to all the usual issues including eliminating turnovers and untimely penalties. More specifically it will be whose QB has the most vertical 4 quarters.
I think that the NFL Conference Championship Games are examples of great booking because there are strong, personal issues involved and the outcomes are not predictable.
Speaking of Taz, have you checked out Taz' new website http://wwwTeamTaz13.com? My former broadcast partner launched his new 'finishing school' for wrestlers with professional experience Thursday. I heard the first day went well which doesn't surprise me. Taz will prepare well and be dedicated to his venture and, as I have said before, is a natural born coach.
An emailer to this site asked me if I thought Batista would be back for the Royal Rumble and my guess is no. Dave has been filming a movie out of the country plus preparing to launch a long awaited, much anticipated MMA career with Strikeforce sometime in 2011 as I understand it. With that said, would it be a shocker to see Batista be of the 40 men in the Rumble match....perhaps....a mild one. Any thing's possible these days and the biz is short on star power.
A Twitter follower @JRsBBQ asked the obligatory Randy Savage questions that we get inundated with at this time of the year. There's a video of Macho Man on line with him talking about the WWE's Wrestling All Stars video game which is due to be released on March 29 but Savage going into the WWE HOF this year would surprise me. HBK is this year's headliner and even though Savage had a distinguished, HOF level career he would also be a headliner and not a supporting role player IMO. Look at it any way you choose but each year there is only one headliner at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The year that I was inducted in 2007 Dusty Rhodes was the headliner.
An emailer hoped that Jerry Lawler would win the Royal Rumble match and I'm not aware that King is going to even be in the Rumble. One thing that I can say is that Jerry is as popular as virtually any wrestler in WWE right now due to recent events which speaks to two points. One, Jerry is extremely talented and, two, it speaks to the issue of the lack of main event depth currently in the wrestling biz in general.
Emailer...why do I like personal issues in wrestling? Because if they are properly presented they represent real life issues and situations and take the fan in me right into the moment. Personal issues position a clearly defined protagonist vs. a definitive antagonist. However, I do not enjoy watching pro wrestling storylines that involve religion or politics, or, more often than not, legit interpersonal relationships but that's the old school in me.
We encourage all fans to check out the CAC website at http://www.caulifloweralleyclub.org for info on their annual, April gathering in Las Vegas. This year CAC will be honoring Mick Foley, Honky Tonk Man, Rick Martel, and Sgt. Slaughter who will all receive awards. Yours truly received the Art Abrams Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 which Mick is getting this year. Several other wrestlers from multiple generations will be in attendance and fans are encouraged to attend as well. I hope to see you there and also invite you to join CAC just as I have.
Twitter....who would I have enjoyed seeing the Undertaker compete with at a Wrestlemania in all the participants absolute prime? With "The Streak" on the line, it would have been huge PPV business to see Taker face Andre the Giant. I also would have loved to see Undertaker face a young, healthy Bruiser Brody. That would have pitted two, amazingly athletic big men pounding each other. Another opponent that popped in my mind as a fantasy opponent versus the Undertaker with "The Streak" on the line would have been Abdullah the Butcher, again in the prime of the Butcher's wild and unpredictable career. Perhaps Gary Hart could have been Abby's manager in this fantasy bout that would also have been far, far from being PG friendly with what I suspect would have been a Slobber Knocker level brawl.
