Dusty Rhodes gets a new TV Title and talks about “risky business”
clubberin:

“Every time I look across the ring and see a different opponent, it reminds me of standing by a dark, dangerous river, and looking across into a bold new land, and baby, that’s risky business.”

Mick Foley’s wrestling road stories: losing an ear, meeting Barry Bonds and going to the Red Light District
Mick Foley is funny. If you’re a wrestling fan, you know this. If you’re not, read his New York Times best-selling autobiographies. The man has a gift for storytelling.
The hardcore legend and soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer didn’t disappoint during four nights at Stanford and Sons Comedy Club — right here, in Kansas City, Kansas (read my preview interview here). I attended the 7:45 p.m. Friday set, which seemed to end way too soon — even for Foley, who begged the club for extra time, despite having another show later. He also asked if the club would discount tickets for anyone who wanted to stick around, but the late show was already sold out.
Foley mixed his storytelling with a Q&A session and the highlight was a story about going to Amsterdam’s Red Light District with Al Snow and The Rock and watching a live sex show in which a guy “worked hurt.” I’ll let Foley tell the story, but the knee brace wearing guy wasn’t exactly enjoying his work.

There were plenty of Harley Race stories as well as Foley recounting how he lost his ear in Germany (and Booker T’s freaked out reaction). He also shared how he met Barry Bonds, who seemed a tad unapproachable. It was a great set that left me wanting more.
I’d like to see Foley headline an auditorium where he can headline with all the time he wants (sort of what Kevin Smith has been doing — and Foley has done in the past on college campuses).
After the show, Foley did a meet and greet, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.
For a guy who spent his career beating people with steel chairs and barbed-wire baseball bats, he’s really, really nice.
If you get a chance to see him — Foley is doing four nights in Iowa January 16-19 — go.

Schamberger continues to impress, here with my favorite NWA TV Champion, the Great Muta. I hated to see him leave the NWA, but it was obviously the best thing for his career.

WWE Shop offering 25 percent off everything plus free shipping on orders over $75: November 12, 2012
This is a fantastic sale at WWE Shop. If you’ve been putting off ordering WWE ‘13 (like me) or CM Punk’s DVD, the time for procrastination is over. I just ordered both, plus the NWO and WCW Clash of Champions on Blue Ray and the total was just over $100, which I don’t think is too bad at all.

The worst president in wrestling history: November 6, 2012
Former WWF President Jack Tunney has to go down as the worst commander in chief in history for one reason: He denied wrestling fans a Hulk Hogan-Ultimate Warrior WrestleMania VI rematch.
Devil’s advocate: After seeing the Hogan-Warrior rematch years later at Halloween Havoc in WCW, Tunney may have been on to something.

Brad Armstrong dead at age 51: November 1, 2012
WWE.com reported the former WCW wrestler’s death earlier today. Here’s WWE’s report:
"WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of Brad Armstrong, 51, one of four sons of ‘Bullet’ Bob Armstrong. Brad Armstrong last participated in the ring for the ECW brand in 2006. WWE understands that Brad saw his physician last week for a medical issue and was found unresponsive this morning. WWE extends its sincerest condolences to the entire Armstrong family."
Armstrong was a good worker but never had star charisma. WCW put him under masks several times but those characters also never got over.
