Weekly DVD Suggestion - The Ladder Match

This weeks DVD of choice is The Ladder Match. This not a bio piece but compilation of some of the greatest ladder matches in wrestling history. It explores some of the first ladder matches that happened in legendary Stampede Wrestling and goes all the way up to the modern era. The video was made around 2007 so it will not have some of the more recent matches but is still loaded with lots of action. If you are a fan of TLC and Money In The Bank then you will love this DVD.

Old School Profile - Bruiser Brody

When I started this Old School Profile series it was to connect fans with some of the under appreciated stars from years past. This is kind of a place where I pick what I feel are unsung heroes from the past. Guys who maybe a little forgotten today but where superstars of their day.

Today's pick is the late great Frank Donald Goodish, better known as Bruiser Brody. Brody was an All State football and basketball player at Warren High School in Warren, MI. He later played football at the legendary West Texas State University where many other professional wrestlers also played ball. Trained by Hall of Famer The Sheik, he made is professional wrestling debut in 1973.
Brody like a lot wrestlers from his era was never tied too much to one promotion as he traveled all over the world to compete. His most popular runs are probably his time in World Class Championship Wrestling in Texas and his run in Japan where he was long time tag team partner with the great Stan Hansen.

Brody was an inspiration to a lot wrestlers and popularized what is known as the brawling style. He was scene as a legitimate tough guy that took no crap. A lot of the Brody style can been seen in the likes of guys like Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Matt Morgan and Sheamus.

Bruiser had many legendary feuds with the likes of Kamala and Jerry Blackwell but his most famous rival is probably Abdullah The Butcher. They have had battles in Japan and in World Class Championship Wrestling. They were often bloody and heated confrontations.
Brody vs Abdullah The Butcher

Brody was known thought the business as a guy that was sometimes hard to work with. He sometimes refused to job to opponents(lose)and was known to be a pain to promoters. He had a reputation for being a little stiff in the ring. To quote Michael Hayes "When you wrestled Frank, you knew you were going to get your ass whipped." In 1988 while working in Puerto Rico, Brody met his untimely death after a confrontation before an event.

RIP Bruiser Brody
(June 18, 1946 – July 17, 1988)

SummerSlam Review

Summerslam was actually a very interesting PPV that told solid stories. The matches were paced nice and were all given a decent amount of time. My overall grade for the event is an B+. This would have been an A grade but had to take points off for no Jim Ross on commentary and that horrible Cee Lo Green performance.

6 Man Tag Team Match
The Miz, R-Truth and Alberto Del Rio VS Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio and John Morrison
The PPV kicked off with a 6 man tag match featuring Raw superstars. The match was not on the original schedule and was kind of throw in. The match was actually pretty good for an opening match and let everyone look good. All of these men could possibly end up in the WWE title picture. The match ended up with the team of Mysterio, Morrison and Kingston going over. Lots of nice high spots by the high flying babyface team. Rey hit R-Truth with a a flying frog splash to finish off the match.

CM Punk/Stephanie McMahon Interaction

Mark Henry vs Sheamus
This match was pretty and solid and both men didn't shy away from the brutality. Both these men were very physical and took some vicious bumps. The match ended with Sheamus being counted out after being put through a retainer wall by Mark Henry. Both competitors looked strong and should be in for a good feud.

Dumb Cee Loo performance

Not too much to report about here but that fact that is never should have happened. Cee Loo's resemblance to Mable got more attention than anything.

Kelly Kelly(Champion) vs Beth Phoenix
Divas Title Match
This turned out to be a real solid match and they got a good amount of time to work. Kelly Kelly showed a lot of improvement in her in ring work in this match. Both divas came to the match with back up. Kelly have Eve and Beth having Natalya respectively. The match result was a shocker with Kelly Kelly outsmarting Beth with a roll up victory.

Barrett vs Bryan
This matched featured two up and coming young lions and competitors from NXT season 1. Money in The Bank Winner Daniel Bryan and Wade Barrett. It was a good back and forth match with Barrett defeating Bryan. Not sure if all of this losing is good for Bryan being a MIB winner but I guess this means that there is a plan to push Barrett sometime soon.

Randy Orton vs Christian(Champ)
No Holds Barred
This one was easily the match of the night and one of the better matches I have seen all year. This has been one of the WWE's best rivalries this year. The match started off with a surprise from Christian as he announced that his best friend the Rated R Superstar Edge would be in his corner. Edge came out to a wonderful reception from the crowd and informed his best friend that he was acting like a bitch lately and would not be in his corner supporting him.

The match was a very physical back and forth contest. Neither competitor held anything back. The suspense was very high in this match because felt like either man could win at any moment. Orton took the title with well timed RKO to Christian on the stairs.

John Cena(Champion) vs CM Punk(Champion)
WWE Title Match
This is the match that the event was built on. In my opinion it did not disappoint. After such a hard act to follow in the Heavyweight title match before. Cena and Punk put on a solid show and Triple H did not over take the match as the referee. Both men hit finishers that were kicked out of. The match ended with CM Punk hitting the GTS on Cena and Triple H making the 3 count despite Cena's foot being on the ropes. So for a few seconds CM Punk had solidified himself as the true WWE Champion. After the match he was attacked by former WWE Champion Kevin Nash. After that attack MIB winner Alberto Del Rio decided it would be a good time to cash the Money In The Bank contract. He is now the new WWE Champion. Triple H guaranteed that there would be Undisputed WWE Champion but he didn't say who. The fallout from this will be very interesting.

"Triple H vs The Rock" My Favorite Rivalry

Wrestling fans until the end of time will argue over their favorite rivalries. Well by the title of this piece you know mine is the The Rock vs Triple H. I feel like it is one of the most slept on conflicts in wrestling history. Their rivalry is spanned a few years from the late 90's into the early 2000's. They fought under every possible scenario.

Since 1997 they have been in every possible position that you could put two adversaries. They have both been heels and faces during that time and both have led factions against one another. They have fought to see who will be the Intercontinental Champion, the number contender and the WWF Championship on numerous occasions.

Whether its main eventing Wrestlemania or being the main event of the first ever Smackdown broadcast these gentlemen have had some fantastic moments in wrestling history.

Weekly DVD Suggestion - Chris Jericho

This week from the suggestion file comes the Chris Jericho DVD. Breaking The Code: Behind the Walls of "Chris Jericho" is a very deep look at the life and career of one of the greatest performers to ever do it. This is one of the best bio pieces that you will see in a WWE video and that is saying a lot. This further illustrates why they are the best at making these DVDs.

We get to follow Chris from his childhood in Canada to his travels all around the world in his journey to becoming a WWE Superstar. It also covers his life outside the squared circle. We see him enjoying his second passion being the lead singer of the rock band Fozzy. Also accompanying this bio is an incredible selection of some of Jericho's best matches.

Wrestling and Its Music

One of the most underrated elements of a wrestling is the music. Specifically the wrestlers entrance music. The right theme can help elevate a talent to the next level. The ability to enhance a characters image and brand a performer though the music. These themes have helped with the transition of different talents new personas. I have compiled a list of some of my favorite wrestling songs for this blog. This is by no way a top 10 or in any kind of least to greatest order. These are just songs that I like and wanted to share with all of you...

The Fabulous Freebirds
One of the pioneers of wrestling entrance music are The Fabulous Freebirds. Michael Hayes and the gang were the first guys to use Rock N Roll music for their entrance theme.

The Ultimate Warrior
Nothing said excitement like the entrance theme for the Ultimate Warrior. Soon as those opening cords would play the crowd would go crazy.

Hulk Hogan
There is probably no greater example of the music pushing a wrestler to the next level then Hulk Hogan. At the peak of American Pride in the 1980s and belief in the good old USA we can conquer all there is Hulk Hogan. To match the say prayers, eat your vitamins theme there was the "Real American" song that gave fans the emotional bond to Hogan.

Evolution Theme
Pretty all I have to say is Triple H and Motorhead. Whenever you combine these two elements, there will be a pretty good theme song.

This Might Be Racist

I will be the first to admit that sometimes professional wrestling helps perpetuate popular racial stereotypes. The black tag team named "Cryme Time" or "Harlem Heat" despite the fact that the 2 men were not from Harlem. It is not limited to just African American performers. I am sure that the Latino audience is not thrilled with the Mexicools or the Irish fans impressed with Hornswaggle. In this blog I compiled a list of past wrestling moments that have leaned on a little bit of racism. I see you wrestling.

Vince decides that he is going to push it as far as he can.
Surprised that Rev Sharpton and Jesse Jackson didn't catch this one. I am pretty sure that Vince McMahon wouldn't have ran from the controversy.

Watch Mean Gene's face he knows that this could cost somebody their

Some of the things you will see in this DVD
