Buff Bagwell Talks About Being on Showtime’s Gigolos, Says He Hasn’t Went On a Date Yet

Source: Lords of Pain

– Former WCW star Marcus “Buff Bagwell” recently appeared on The Undisputed Wrestling Show to promote Heroes & Legends 3. The full interview is at this link. He talked about his role on Showtime’s Gigolos:

“If you go on cowboys4angels.com it gives my price. I am now a gigolo on the “Gigolos” show. Basically what it is: Women, not men, not anybody else, just women can go on there for companionship. There is no sex. Showtime can’t have sex (on air). This is my job and I came up with this because wrestling seems to be over for me in the big world and I’m having to switch gears at the age of 44. So still being in shape to go to WWE tomorrow, ready to go to TNA tomorrow, it is just political (that I’m not there). So time to switch gears. This came up, I’m doing it, and I’m going on my debut and it was nuts. I was the second highest rated on the show (Gigolos). It is just blowing everyone’s minds how quick this thing took off. I’m just riding the ride and seeing what happens.”

“This is so new, I haven’t even gone on my first date yet. So I don’t even know. This is something I thought I could do, I’ve always loved women and I’m married but at the same time this is something that is not sexual, this is something that I am a companion, I am a friend. I go on dates with girls for them to have me as a piece of candy to show her friends. There is no sex, it is simply my companionship for however much time you want to buy me. I’m a gigolo trying to make some money.”

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Kane

 

Yoshi stares up at Corporate Kane with a slight hint of fear. Kane smiles towards Yoshi as the bell rings. Kane quickly runs for Yoshi on the opposite side of the ring, but Yoshi’s quick, ducking the attempt and taking Kane into the corner turnbuckles. Yoshi connects a few kicks to the mid sections and delivers a hard spinning heel kick to Kane’s head. Yoshi runs the ropes but Kane comes back delivering an extremely hard shoulder planting Yoshi on the mat and rolling him into the corner. Kane follows up delivering a few punches to the throat and tossing Yoshi from the corner to the center of the ring. Kane lifts Yoshi back on his feet and Irish whips him. Yoshi rebounds off the ropes, ducks a close line attempt, rebounds again and this time connecting a spinning calf kick to Kane. Kane staggers and Yoshi takes advantage; quickly climbing to the second rope in the corner and jumping delivering yet another calf kick taking Kane off his feet. Yoshi taunts to the crowd and waits for Kane to stand up to deliver his round house kick finisher. Kane makes his way back up to his feet and turns, Yoshi goes for the kick but Kane catches his foot and grabs Yoshi’s throat. Kane delivers a huge choke slam and pins Yoshi for the 1..2..3!

Winner: Kane

Kane stands above Yoshi smiling down and taunts his usual fire pyro from the steel posts.

Kane moves onto round 2.

Jim Ross Blog: Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H, WrestleMania Pre-Show, Legend Passes Away, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:

– Big few days in OKC with the NCAA Division 1 National Wrestling Tournament in town which will air on ESPN. Heading up soon to catch up with Jerry Brisco of WWE to watch the kids he’s been recruiting. in the meanwhile, we’re burning daylight…

– Anxious to see how the two hour pre game show for WM30 turns out. I think the pre and post game shows can be a legit asset for WWE if they are smartly produced and the talents step up and deliver provocative content. The upside of these programs are limitless.

– One of the great old school wrestling villains passed away this week as Lorenzo Parente who I first saw in the 60′s on Lee Roy McGuirk’s Championship Wrestling was a true wrestling heel who was rugged and believable. Parente had a great series of matches for theh NWA Junior Heavyweight Title vs the Legendary Dan Hodge.

– The WWE has gold a magnificent Daniel Bryan/HHH/WWE Title scenario story. Now the challenge is to get other story lines at or near the same level. The history of any WrestleMania is that most cards are essentially a 2-3 bout show and the best one’s are where a non main line, main event match over delivers and steals the show. Shawn Michaels vs. Kurt Angle is a good example of such. The early Money in the Bank Ladder matches fit that description as well.

Backstage News on The Shield Splitting Up

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

– Darren Young did an interview on the WWE App this week where he teased being in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX. He hasn’t been announced by WWE yet.

– While The Shield have made a turn in the last week, they are still scheduled to split up. As of this week, the plan is for Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to form a heel tag team and Roman Reigns to be pushed as a top singles babyface.

 

MindofCarnage note: Preferably I would prefer to see Seth and Roman tag together. Seth would be a good babyface.

Goldust vs. Cesaro

 

Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter accompany Cesaro to the ring just as Cody Rhodes accompanied Goldust.

Cesaro lets out a “We the People” taunt which gets a reaction from the crowd. The ref calls for the bell and both Goldust and Cesaro begin measuring each other up. They clinch up with Goldust locking in a side head lock. Cesaro pushes him off the ropes, but Goldust hits Cesaro with a hard shoulder taking him down. Cesaro gets up quickly and both clinch up again. This time Cesaro gets the side head lock and Goldust pushes him off only to be hit hard by Cesaro’s shoulder. Both competitors reach their feet and for a third time clinch up. Again it’s Cesaro with the side head lock. Goldust pushes him off towards the ropes but this time Cesaro lands a hard running European uppercut which staggers Goldust into a corner. Cesaro follows up connecting multiple European uppercuts in the corner. He Irish whips Goldust and tries for a close line. Goldust ducks the close line, rebounds off the ropes and stops as Cesaro bends forward to back flip him. Goldust falls to the mat and connects a hard punch to Cesaro’s throat. Cesaro rolls to the outside getting support from Swagger and Zeb Colter.

Cesaro regains his composure and climbs back into the ring. Both competitors perform another clinch but Cesaro gets the upper hand connecting a hard gut kick taking Goldust to his knees. Cesaro connects a few head punches and runs the ropes. Goldust bounces back to his feet and connects his fast power slam taking Cesaro to the mat. Goldust runs the ropes and connects a dropping forearm to Cesaro’s head. He lifts Cesaro up onto his feet and positions him in a suplex. Cesaro fights out and countering the suplex and connects one of his own. The force behind the impact makes Goldust yell out in pain and roll to the outside in front of Zeb and Swagger. Cesaro in the ring beings taunting and mocking Cody Rhodes on the outside until Cody climbs the apron and the ref argues with him to get down. Swagger in the mean time takes advantage of the distracted ref and throws Goldust into the barricade back first. Cesaro smiles at the team work involved and together with Zeb and Swagger taunt “We the People” and rolls to the outside. He lifts Goldust back up and slams him against the barricade once more. As Goldust remains on the ground grunting in pain, Cesaro picks up Goldust by the legs and locks him into the Cesaro swing, but instead of swinging Goldust 360 degrees he swings him back and forth into the barricade shoulder first. Cesaro continues this until the ref climbs to the outside telling Cesaro to break the hold or else he’s disqualified.

Cesaro smiles and breaks the hold. He rolls Goldust back into the ring and climbs back in himself. He wraps his arms around the mid section of Goldust and heaves him up off the ground. Cesaro delivers a gut wrench suplex and pins for a 2 count. He lifts Goldust off his feet and Irish whips him in the corner. He runs after Goldust, but Goldust rebounds off the second rope and delivers a hard elbow to Cesaro. Goldust runs the ropes and delivers two close lines and an atomic drop. He takes Cesaro to the turnbuckles and hangs him on the second ropes leaving his crotch area open.. Goldust taunts and delivers a swift kick (Shattered Dreams) to Cesaro’s crotch area! Cesaro bends forward and drops to the mat gasping for air.

On the outside of the ring Zeb whispers something to Swagger and points to Cody. Swagger sneaks up around the ring and attacks Cody throwing him into the barricade and into the steel steps. Goldust distracted yells at Swagger and as he turns around Cesaro throws him up and connects a hard European uppercut as the gravity brings Goldust back down. Cesaro lifts him up and delivers the neutralizer for the 1..2..3!

Winner: Cesaro

After the match Cesaro pushes Goldust out of the ring and the Real Americans stand tall, placing one hand over their heart and in a deep and loud voice says “We the People!”

Cesaro moves on!

Great votes, this was a close one!

Who Were The ‘Police Officers’ On RAW?, SD Dark Match

raw1

— Alexander Rusev defeated Xavier Woods in the dark match prior to the WWE SmackDown tapings on Tuesday night in Houston, TX.

— The “police officers” who appeared on RAW during the Triple H-Daniel Bryan segment on RAW Monday night were actually talents from Booker T’s “Reality of Wrestling” promotion. The promotion runs close to where RAW was held (San Antonio) and WWE asked Booker to supply the enhancement talents.

Mick Foley Shares His Thoughts on the RAW Beatdown with Triple H and Daniel Bryan

Mick Foley has a new Facebook blog about the brutal ending to RAW with Triple H and Daniel Bryan. Here’s part of what he wrote:

“FOR ME, RAW WAS JUST RIGHT

Following the brutal beat-down of Daniel Bryan by Triple H on Monday’s ‪#‎RAW‬, I received many questions on social media, asking if I thought WWE had gone too far, with many pointing out the beating’s resemblance to the one I took at the hands of The Rock in the 1999 Royal Rumble. No, I don’t think they went too far. I think they went just far enough.

A few weeks ago, when Daniel Bryan challenged Triple H, and tried to engage the crowd in a “Yes” chant, it seemed half-hearted at best, to the point where I said out loud, in the Foley living room, “he’s trying to sell a match that no one wants to see.” Well, following Monday night, that match has gone from being simply the obstacle Daniel Bryan had to hurdle to get to the main event into a match I now I feel like I need to see.

Yes, it was brutal, yes it was tough to watch at certain points – but it served notice to all of those who had forgotten, that Triple H was one of the best bad guys of his generation – and Stephanie, with her recent work on the microphone, has become an absolutely compelling authority figure – as effective as I’ve ever seen her; seemingly channeling her inner Vince. I’ve known Stephanie a long time, and somewhere in the McMahon/Helmsley home, she still has the pot-holder my daughter made for her many, many years, ago. No matter what happens in business, she is someone I will always consider a friend. But man, do I want to see her get what she has coming to her? Maybe a WWE Diva who might happen to have a close connection to Daniel Bryan to smack the taste out of her mouth. Any candidates?

Imagine me as Goldilocks, surveying the lay of the WWE land, looking at angles from the past – far past, and recent past, trying to figure out which one is the perfect fit when it comes to selling a match – really, truly turning a match into something that the WWE Universe feels they need to see. That Rumble I did with Dwayne The Rock Johnson with the 11 unprotected chairshots? Too much. Most of what we see in the PG era? No matter how good the wrestling (and much of it is really, really good) – it’s just a little too soft. But what I saw on Monday night? As brutal as it may have been, as tough as it may have been to watch, I thought it was just right.”

Tag Team Title & Battle Royal Plans For WrestleMania 30

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

It looks like The Usos will be defending the WWE Tag Team Titles against Jack Swagger & Cesaro and Curtis Axel & Ryback. If that is the case, then Axel and Ryback will be removed from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

As of now, the Battle Royal will have Big E, Big Show, The Miz, Sheamus, Titus O’Neil, Alberto Del Rio, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Fandango, Mark Henry, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Dolph Ziggler, Christian, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre. Of course, Superstars can be taken out or added.

I can’t stress this enough, plans change on a daily and even on an hourly base. These are not set in stone, but as of today, these are the plans.

Will Erick Rowan & Luke Harper Have A Match At WrestleMania

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose are set to take on Kane and The New Age Outlaws in a six man tag team match at WrestleMania 30.
