Thanks for stopping by...really busy week here so let's get the sow on the road.
Our FREE mustard offer went gangbusters for which we are grateful. Remember, BBQ Sauce is NOT season and of course neither are Chipotle Ketchup and Main Event Mustard. plus we make the best, custom made, premium Beef Jerky in the land. Give us a shot.
We have no plans at this time on shipping outside the USA but http://www.wweshop.com does for us and have become a really nice customer of our products.
Jesse Ventura suing TSA for unlawful search and seizure essentially suing the Federal Government isn't a shocker. Jesse is outspoken and loves controversy (does it create cash?) likely feels justified in filing his suit and it gets him some media stretch for his TruTV show. He was the most challenging partner that I ever worked with in the broadcast booth which doesn't mean it was a negative experience. Just challenging.
MMA purists are inferring that Brock Lesnar really wants no part of Junior Dos Santos after the two heavyweight, UFC fighters host TUF TV show. That's a load of manure. MMA message board geeks have been waiting for Lesnar to lose a fight so that they can jump off his bandwagon and continue to rail on the former WWE Champion not because Brock was a Division 1 National Wrestling Champion and legit, multiple time All American but because he spent time in a pro wrestling ring. That's brilliant logic isn't it? A classic example of pro wrestling bias at work.
Speaking of MMA, I would suspect that if Dave Batista is in the country that he will be in San Jose this Saturday night for the Strikeforce fights on Showtime. Hopefully Showtime will be smart enough to interview Batista and to throughly preview their heavyweight tourney coming up throughout 2011 and not drop the promotional ball like Strikeforce/Showtime did on their last broadcast.
UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione is a classic example of why promoters for years recruited talented, college athletes to come into pro wrestling and why I feel that finding ex-football players who are still young and athletic is essential in the recruiting efforts of future sports entertainers.
I hope to recruit the football world throughly in 2011 and find guys who are out of college and looking for a career even after not making a NFL team for what could be a variety of reasons. Mitrione is big, intelligent, learns quickly, is tough, and has charisma. I don't know how the former Purdue lineman will fare against world class MMA competition as his career moves forward I suspect that the MMA rookie will continue to improve and turn, and take off, heads.
Arn Anderson, to answer repeated questions, has certainly had a WWE HOF level career. Whether that means he goes into the HOF this year in Atlanta is anyone's guess. Good question is whether AA goes in alone or with Tully as a part of the Brain Busters.
Why was Bob Caudle so effective as a broadcaster? Simple reason....Bob had no ego and always made sure that the talents came first and was never concerned about promoting himself or making himself a part of the performance to any significant degree. Those days are fading.
Agree that Miz does remind me at times of a young, Roddy Piper. That's a good thing for Miz who has the efficient attributes of being a 'beatable' champion who can theoretically lose on any given night to a hero. I am very interested in how Miz fares against Randy Orton at the Royal Rumble. The outcome of that WWE Title bout will speak volumes.
Good to see WWE using former wrestler Nunzio as a referee. He's a good guy who is reliable and deserving of opportunity. Nice move by WWE. Quality referees are hard to come by and are so underrated in the process of presenting a good wrestling bout.
No WWE isn't 'mad' at Rock as best I know and yes Rock will be a WWE HOF'er one day or so I would bet a case of Chipotle Ketchup. This time of the year everyone seemingly has a conspiracy theory about why this wrestler and that performer are not in the WWE HOF. I will be happy when all the names are released so that the next round of second guessing can commence.
Keep your eye on Percy Watson who is arguably the most athletically gifted athlete WWE has signed in many, many years.
One of the topics that I will be working on at the next Legends Roundtable this week are wrestling rivalries. I think that I'm going with Austin vs. Rock for my personal choice and it will be interesting to see who the other panelists select as theirs. I'll keep you abreast via Twitter @JRsBBQ.
I don't know when these next Legends Roundtables will air but will let you know when it's determined.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope that you can take a quick pass through our store. Remember to follow us on Twitter @JRsBBQ.
