JR Blog: Stealing Wrestling Moves, Tough Enough, Goldberg, More

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News
Friday, May 20th, 2011

is back with a new blog over on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:

- Twitter….’Stealing wrestling moves’ is so much to do about nothing in my opinion. If not, is Ed ‘Stranger’ Lewis spinning in his grave every time we see the occasional headlock utilized when an athlete actually applies logical, wrestling holds? Or what about circus trapeze artists when a wrestling match breaks down into not much more than a succession of flips, flops, and flies leading to an inside cradle for the eventual pin?

- Emailer…Why would any independent contractor in any vocation NOT obtain health insurance? Isn’t the real issue who should or shouldn’t be an independent contractor in the eyes of many pundits within pro wrestling? Obviously, having adequate health insurance in today’s world is a no brainer as is automobile insurance. I assume that health insurance for a wrestler in today’s world might be easier to obtain than it was generations ago due to the show biz aspect of the genre being better understood and the competitive nature of the insurance business. Is it cheap? No. Is it a necessity? Absolutely. Let the debate rage on on the independent contractor issue but aside from that having adequate health insurance is a must.

- Twitter…@steveaustinBSR has made Tough Enough his own vehicle and if season #2 rolls around and Steve is able to interject himself from the beginning of the process, I’ll predict that next season’s Tough Enough will be even better. I love the editing and look of the show and could see a DVD extra on a WWE PPV featuring outtakes, etc. None of the kids have jumped off the TV at me as of yet but that could change anytime. @TheRock guest stars next Monday on the USA Network just before Raw from Portland, Oregon.

- Twitter…Did any one actually believe that @ was going to take his skills to TNA? Call me naive but I didn’t and still don’t see it happening. However, if it does occur, good luck to all involved. I’ve been a Bill fan for a long time. Oklahoma boy, you know.

    Goldberg and skills are 2 words that don’t belong in the same sentence.

    Mate when you have the physique Goldberg has/had then you don’t need to be good at what you do to be pushed far. In fact as long as you make the matches entertaining you don’t need to know a thing about the sport.Watch Jeremiah Riggs(tough enough) when he was on the 7th season of the Ultimate Fighter. He didn’t know a thing about fighting and was getting his ass handed to him but still the match was really entertaining

    pero goldber si tiene cualidades y buenos movimientos de lucha la presencia escenica de este sr muy pocos la tienen y su record es devastador es impresionante lo que hizo en su carrera destruyo a quien se le atraveso en su camino espero que regrese el tiempo ya no esta de su lado y creo que le quedaria poco en la lucha.
