Today in 1985 – “Macho Man” makes his WWF TV debut

July 6, 1985 Randy Savage makes his WWF TV debut. In June 1985, Savage was billed as “the top free agent in pro wrestling,” Savage’s first appearances on Tuesday Night Titans featured several established managers (including Bobby Heenan, Jimmy Hart, and “Classy” Freddie Blassie) offering their services to Savage. He eventually declined their offers and chose Miss Elizabeth as his new manager. His gimmick was a crazed, ego-maniacal bully who mistreated Miss Elizabeth and threatened anyone who even looked at her.

Vince McMahon reportedly calls for more budget cuts

vince-mcmahon-the-rock-4

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is set to endeavor more wrestlers reducing the company’s financial output. It’s understood that McMahon wants to cut $20 million from the budget of the WWE, which is a major decision in itself.

“Vince McMahon has reportedly called for more cuts to the budget, as the company looks to trim an estimated $20 million from its budget this year,” WrestleZone reported.

In April, WWE suffered a major financial setback when the stock price of the entertainment company plummeted. The company started up their own network around the time of WrestleMania XXX and that was relatively unsuccessful. Vince McMahon expected more fans to subscribe and the move to make their network has been seen as a failure in many quarters.

Also, a few weeks ago, the company released 11 wrestlers in one day, and then followed that up with the release of announcer Josh Mathews last week.

You never want to see anyone lose their job but if I had to make of list of possible endeavors I would start with…Otunga, Khali, Hornswagle, Heath Slater, Layla, Fandango, Santino, Alex Riley, Christian, Zack Ryder, Tyson Kidd, Curtis Axel and Ryback. Wait maybe Ryder is safe I swear he’s the guy in bunny suit, who comes out with Adam Rose. Who are we kidding he’s gone too.

Mac’s Three Points: Awesome Raw, Ambrose/Reigns, SummerSlam Build

20140630_RawGIF3

Fresh off the heels of a solid Money In The Bank pay-per-view, WWE delivered a tremendous Monday Night Raw last night building towards SummerSlam. Yeah, there’s another show in three weeks called Battleground, but no one is caring about that. The real focus is the second biggest Pay-Per-View of the year and the end of the first cycle of WWE Network subscriptions. As a result, the company is looking to pull out all the big guns for August with three big returns, two face turns, a possible heel turn, and a couple a really good matches. What delivered was a well-written Raw re-establishing a good portion of their characters.

Hechicero vs. Cavernario (CMLL En Busca de un Idolo Finals) – 6/20/14

If there’s anything to be known about me, I am a big fan of Lucha Libre (Mexican Professional Wrestling) and a couple of weeks ago CMLL had wrapped up their En Busca de un Idolo tournament. To give a novice description of the event, the tournament started in 2012 with the goal of elevating “rookie” workers up the card. Luchadores such as Titan and Vangellys have found great success winning the previous years as well as Polvora, Valiente, Puma King, and Tiger Kid in acquiring notable increase in rank due to their involvement.

This year’s tournament had a number of incredibly good talent with the final four consisting of Negro Casas‘ Dragon Lee and Cavernario and Virus’ Cachorro and Hechicero. All signs pointed to a Hechicero and Dragon Lee final, until fan voting led to Cavernario up into the 2nd seed to face Hechicero in the final. Cavernario is Negro Casas’ pupil who have this barbaric caveman gimmick (hence the name). He’s a solid worker with a number of aerial offense and a backbreaker submission finisher known as the Cavernaria. Hechicero is a bad ass luchadore who is Virus’ student that has a myriad of innovative high-impact offense. It’s easy to fall in love with his work with his style itself and watching him pull off wicked moves.

The match has a glaringly botched spot earlier, but aside of that it is really fucking good. I have a lot of high hopes going forward for the winner, though all the runner-ups should be very well in CMLL as history shown.

WWE Money In The Bank Preview

Poster Oficial De WWE Money In The Bank 2014

The road to SummerSlam has found a new path over the last five years through Money In The Bank, where WWE superstars on the cusp of becoming Main Eventers will get the proverbial rocket strapped on him. They’ll either become an insurmountable success like CM Punk and Edge or they will become Damien Sandow. Either way, the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-Views has always provided a good show due to the nature of the Ladder Match and its display for car-wreck physicality and high spots. The build for the show has been really good and outside of Boston, Mass. in the TD Garden, the show should have a great atmosphere. This is where the plans for SummerSlam that will start to take shape and the card is good enough to produce a high-caliber wrestling event.

Now let’s go and run this card down from the tippy top to the very bottom.

Month Of Misawa: Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi (NOAH 3/1/03)

Here am I again presenting another installment of the Month Of Misawa. It’s only a few short days left of June, so don’t be surprised if I give out more than one match on the site and Twitter timeline today. Here is the one match that might be my overall favorite of the Kobashi vs. Misawa rivalry. I wrote about this plenty but it’s by far one of my all-time favorite wrestling matches. Misawa and Kobashi was the Japanese equivalent of Rock vs. Austin for a certain time period. They were the two biggest Japanese stars of the late 90s and 2000s, having classic matches on top of classic matches, whether it was tagging with or against each other. Never in my life have I watched a NOAH match at Budokan where the crowd was hot for EVERYTHING in one match.

It also was the first of two Kobashi matches I watch for the first time and ever since, he’s been a  favorite of mine.

Rumor: Sting Possible WWE 2K15 Pre Order Bonus

20110623_main_gab_1990_sting

The scuttlebutt all over the internet today reports that Sting will be WWE 2K15′s pre-order bonus and marketed ‘legend’ selling point. 2K15′s has not announced any official deal with Sting. If a deal and the promo video where to happened this is a relationship between Steve Borden and 2K games, totally be separate from the WWE.

Just like the Ultimate Warrior in 2014, Sting’s possible involvement with 2K is expected to prelude a deal with the WWE itself. WWE 2K15 release is scheduled for late fall early winter on Xbox and Playstation consoles.

I think this would be a great introduction for Sting to a younger audience who really dont know of Sting. This prepares him for coming back to television at some point. The WWE currently have their own deal in the works with Sting with rumors of the WCW legend expecting to sign at some point before WrestleMania 31….Hopefully, unless Sting is just working WWE for a few hefty quick paydays but thats just the internet troll in me over thinking.
