Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I watched a bit of the Hard Knocks Benoit documentary on YouTube last night, it's shocking when you realise that just three years later he murdered his family and killed himself without any real indication that there was anything wrong with him. The DVD was made in 2004 when Benoit was in the midst of his World Heavyweight Championship run, it's hard to imagine that this is the same guy who went on to commit such atrocities. He comes across as being incredibly modest, polite and sensitive. Furthermore, Benoit talks fondly about his friends and family and you can tell he really cares about them. He talks about being humbled when fans highly rate his matches and body of work and how he relishes the opportunities to work at the top and with the best.

... I honestly think that a few days or weeks before the murders, his years of brain trauma finally caught up to him and the sanity fuse blew. He just completely lost it...

Anyway, in other news, apparently CM Punk bladed during the match with Jerry Lawler on Raw. It's been said that he was seen passing Charles Robinson something - which was presumably the blade he used - just after drawing blood. Punk apparently recieved no reprimanding whatsoever, which suggests that either his backstage power is up there with the top guys or that WWE's stance on blading has softened up for those special occasions in which extra drama is required.

^It ws interesting watching Charles Robinson fumbling to put on rubber gloves directly after Punk would have bladed.

I'm sure that'll be in the next Botchamania.

Maybe, but I don't recall anyone rushing to put on gloves during a match before. I mean I understand why they would, but I don't believe I've seen it before.

Charles Robinson was basically Ric Flair's personal Ref for a while back in WCW and Ric would get opened up after dropping an elbow on his coat back in the day.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

CM Punk has claimed that he was fined $500k for the blading thing, although he didn't acknowledge it as such, nor was he being particularly serious. I find it highly unlikely that WWE would fine somebody that much for something as simple as nicking themselves with a piece of razor.

I mean $500k is probably around half of Punk's downside! If he was fined it would probably be less than the $2000 that WWE fines talent who are found with marijuana in their system following a drugs test.

Speaking of money, it turns out that Cameron (one of Brodus Clay's valets) tried bribing police officers as she was adamant that if WWE found out, she'd lose her job.

The fine thing was part of a series of joke tweets responding to allegations of blading.

Plus wasn't "$500 K" what Sheamus was "fined" by Johnny Ace?

Of course,

I did point out that he wasn't being serious and was just messing with people. Still, I thought I'd analyse the ludicrousness of such a fine.

It could actually have been a rib on the creative team for the storyline involving Sheamus being fined $500k for giving a referee the Brogue Kick. $500k is like bail money for armed robbers, not wrestlers nicking their foreheads with razor blades.

Does anyone remember when Triple H offered $500k to anyone who took Goldberg out of action?

Don't forget that Miz and R-Truth were only fined 250k each for beating the crap out of Scott Patterson.

Which adds up to 500k, since as a tag team, they were effectively one unit.

It's becoming like 47 references in Star Trek!

^Look for a face to get fined an even million at some point in the near future for basically no reason what-so-ever. That seems to be the direction this is headed.
