This past Saturday, at an event in Deer Park, New York, Matt Striker and Justin Credible had a legit altercation backstage at an independent show. The two performed a shoot match, in which the use of ropes and strikes are prohibited. After the match, in which Credible won, Striker busted Credible open “the hard way” by throwing a chair at his face. Credible was reportedly incensed, and confronted Striker backstage, and the two were forced apart. Since the altercation, Credible has had this to say about Striker:
"Well when I went to the back I was a little annoyed, and it didn't help that Matt was right there already starting to talk s--t to the promoter," Justin wrote. "I'm not mad at getting hit. I'm mad at the way he is manipulating things in the locker room, and to the NYWC officals. When he started to say he was sorry, I felt more anger, and basically told him to f-ck off. He kept taking sh-t, and then the boys got in the middle, and I walked away. I have no idea what he's trying to accomplish with this, but Matt if something like this ever happens again, I WILL KILL YOU. I just want you to remember, we are 'working' each other again very soon. I'm really looking forward to that match." (Wrestling Inc)
So… yeah. Justin Credible is mad. And he very well should be. Matt Striker’s actions were idiotic and could’ve seriously injured Credible. Still, whenever one man says “I WILL KILL YOU” to another man, this is the only image that comes to my mind:
WWE’s YouTube channel released a promo video for WWE ‘14, in which dream matches are teased. The video includes CM Punk vs Macho Man, Undertaker vs Andre the Giant, Daniel Bryan vs Bret Hart, and AJ Lee vs Stephanie McMahon. “One of these is not like the other” said Captain Obvious, my new independent wrestling persona. Basically, I go around telling people the sky is blue, puppies are cute, and Stephanie McMahon sucks. (YouTube)
John Cena gave a shoutout to Lebron James on Twitter Wednesday, saying that, like James' infamous Miami Heat reveal, he is taking his talents to South Beach this Sunday in a search for yet another championship. The fascinating part of this story was when Lebron responded, "If you have any trouble getting that championship, go to another town and ask the Undertaker and CM Punk to help you win it. Trust me, there is no shame in admitting YOU CAN'T DO IT ON YOUR OWN. (Wrestling Inc)
