Sunday Headlines: If You Can Call Them Thatby Cody Dodson It’s been a bit of a slow news weekend. I know the traditional format of this is to discuss a major headline followed by a few bits regarding some of the minor headlines. I can’t seem to find any major news this weekend, though. So here’s a picture of a Labrador harassing a tiny English Bulldog puppy.<!--more-->
In less important news than that, Bill Goldberg has stated that he would come back to WWE for a match with Brock Lesnar. It all started when somebody asked the apparent source of all knowledge (at least according to people who use Twitter), Jim Ross, whether Brock vs. Bill could happen at next year’s Wrestlemania. Ross wrote that it was highly unlikely, which prompted Goldberg to write that he would in fact be interested in the match.Would anybody else in the world be interested in seeing this? AGAIN? It didn’t exactly go too well last time. If I remember correctly…you know what? I don’t remember correctly. I slept through it. It was that boring. Goldberg hasn’t exactly been relevant to wrestling or life in general for quite some time now. By that time, I’m guessing that Brock Lesnar will have already made his return and had a few “money” matches with opponents that people care about more than Goldberg, so it’s not like WWE could bill it as two legends returning to face each other or anything like that. It didn’t work out too well eight years ago. It won’t work now. (Rajah
In Other News...
Chris Jericho made an appearance at a house show in Tyler, Texas where he did a similar schtick to his celebration of happiness on Raw. It ended when David Otunga arrived to issue an order for Jericho to take off his Technicolor Dreamcoat. Jericho promptly beat him down. These don’t sound like the actions of somebody who is about to turn heel to me, but then again I believed Brett Favre when he said he was retiring. I personally think he should continue doing this for the foreseeable future, continually overplaying to the crowd until he gets booed each time. It would be the perfect setup for his “you’re all hypocrites” character to return. Or, he could play a tweener and wear his heel three piece suit with the dreamcoat over top of it. (Prowrestling.net
)Are you a bi-curious man who just can’t decide if men are right for you? Take the leap by watching the wrestling-parody porn that Chyna is reportedly starring in, coming to video in March! You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll become asexual and suffer from night terrors! (Lordsofpain
)In a sequel to Briggs’ post on the Chelsea Handler-Beth Phoenix drama, the comedienne (a word which society likes to throw around liberally) responded to Beth’s challenge by admitting that she was scared of wrestlers and had no idea what they actually did. Well, at least she has that last part in common with TNA’s creative team. (Prowrestling.net
)Ultimate Warrior responded to Kevin Nash’s challenge to face him in an MMA-style fight. He said he would do it if Nash gave him proper time to prepare, got investors to pay him over a million dollars, and can get those damn aliens to stop coming to his house in the middle of the night.
