Indy Focus: Michael Woods – Promoter of Inter Species Wrestling

Indy Focus: Michael Woods – Promoter of Inter Species Wrestling

By Atlee Greene

-Name of Promotion: Inter Species Wrestling
-Years of operation: 2005 – Current
-Shows per year: 2-3. “Shows happen when we have enough spare cash to justify running questionable wrestling shows”
-Area of operation: Montreal, Quebec and Danbury, Connecticut.
-Age 29

Q: When and how did you become a wrestling fan?

MW: I’ve been a fan since I was about 5. Before that, I hated wrestling. It was on our television on Saturdays, at an hour that usually signaled the end of “cartoon day” as I called it as a kid. Which made me hate wrestling with a passion. One year, my uncle bought me the British Bulldogs tag team set (LJN figure style) for Christmas. Every Saturday after that, I’d watch my cartoons and then stay in front of the tube to see if my toys were going to be on tv fighting. That’s how I got hooked.

Q: Where did you grow up?

MW: Ottawa, Ontario – in Canada.

Q: Who were your favorite wrestlers growing up?

MW: The British Bulldogs, Bret and Owen Hart, Chris Benoit and of course – Hulk Hogan. The Bulldogs are still my favorite wrestlers today.

Q: Did you attend wrestling shows when you were a kid?

MW: I did. I went to two house shows as a kid, and many more as a teenager.

Q: What is your favorite wrestling match and show?

MW: My favorite wrestling match is more than one match. It’s the entire Dynamite Kid/Tiger mask series. As for my favorite show – well – I can’t really name just one. I’ve enjoyed many. Wrestlemania X8 was incredible, just because I was able to experience it live.

Q: When did you decide you wanted to run shows, and how did you get started?

MW: I started working for an independent promotion just outside of my hometown in 2002. I basically laid cable, hooked up equipment, and ran the video wall for live shows. While doing this, I got the chance to learn from the bookers at the time – Joel Racine and former WWWF tag team and International Heavyweight Champion Gino Brito. They talked, I listened. In 2004, I was invited to be part of their booking team for the biggest supercard in Quebec independent wrestling history – Wrestlefest. I got bit by the booking bug, and yeah, the rest is history….I guess.

Inter Species Wrestling started out as a joke. A funny conversation with a friend of mine – where we made up silly wrestling cards, and laughed at the ridiculousness of them. A guy wrestling a goat in a ladder match, and so on. Then we realized that people would probably pay to see this stuff and decided to give it a try.

Q: Take us back to the time and place of the very first show first show you ran?

MW: Butterflies like crazy. My business partner, at the time, was in a car accident on the way to the venue. I was left to run the show alone, and I was nervous as hell. Luckily, some of the guys helped out backstage and it ended up being a blast. It was a learning experience, for sure. Nothing but good memories of the show – even though it really can’t hold a candle to the shows we put on today.

Q: What can fans expect to see when they come to a Inter Species Wrestling show?

MW: Organized chaos and mayhem, mixed with a little comedy, wacky characters, and SURPRISE! Solid wrestling action. We pride ourselves on our unique blend of wrestling, ridiculousness, and crude humor. It’s like nothing else out there.

Q: What makes Inter Species Wrestling different from other independents?

MW: The fact that we’re in this for fun, and it’s evident. You see it when you’re watching one of our shows. The Inter Species Wrestling locker room is a politic-free zone. There’s no backstabbing or bullshit because we don’t take ourselves too seriously. From my own experiences, a lot of other promotions do. That’s what sets us apart. The experience, and the atmosphere is like a party. Both in the ring, and backstage. Save the drama for your mama. Oh, and Lego. Definitely Lego.

Q: Who are some of the notable names you have worked with?

MW: Colt Cabana, Kevin Steen, El Generico, Skayde, and Mike Quackenbush to name a few. We’ve worked with many people, as well as many promotions.

Q: Do you believe Kayfabe is dead?

MW: It’s only dead if you allow it to be. Today’s indy fan is either a respectable one, or a downright douchebag. There’s very little middle ground. And the douchebags ruin it for themselves – because they go into a show with the “kayfabe is dead” attitude – and ruin it for everyone around them as well. You know what I mean, right? The guys who yell out real names, and who is behind the masks, and all that? It’s lame. Very lame. I’ve been to towns in Quebec where the fans still believe, because they want to. They love the faces, and want to absolutely kill the heels. It’s magic, and I love it. It’s up to you, really. I don’t watch too much wrestling anymore.

Q: Any TV/Media appearances:

MW: We’ve been in a few newspapers – but our only tv appearance was on G4′s Electric Playground. They did a pretty sweet little segment on us. (Editor’s Note: See the segment here

Q: What are some of the matches that define what Inter Species Wrestling is all about?

MW: Izzie Deadyet and Zombified vs. Twiggy and El Generico from Hot Summer Rub-Down is the first match that comes to mind. Gimmicks and great wrestling all around. After that, it’d be any of the Giant Tiger vs. Beef Wellington matches. They really hammer the point home.

Q: There is a growing trend of promoters across the country who only promote their shows on the internet? Do think this is a wise move?

MW: I do and I don’t. Promoting online via social networking and forums works and can generate a ton of interest. There’s just no telling how many of them will actually come to the show, or if they’re even close to the area you’re promoting in. Handing a fan a flyer means that they’re obviously from around your area – because you’re not going to flyer out of state or anything. Makes it a little more likely that they’ll come. I don’t know. It’s good and bad. I’ve seen it work and I’ve seen it bomb miserably.

Q: Can you talk about how much time and effort goes into promoting a show?

MW: A whole lot. Unlike many promotions out there, our shows are fully booked before we even announce them to the public. Then it’s time to promote and we put alot into that. We have people postering and flyering other events. We record a weekly podcast, with news and interviews. And we do alot of online promotion – via press releases, video promo work, and guest spots on other podcasts. A good 2-3 months of promotion all around, per show. We keep busy.

Q: You are one of the few promoters who promote shows in different countries. (Canada and U.S.A.) What are the differences?

MW: Not meaning to offend – but the fans in Canada are much more rowdier than the fans in the USA. Completely different atmospheres at Canadian and American shows, for sure. Also, (there) seems to be quite a bit more political bullshit in the US. Aside from that, it’s the same.

Q: Take us through your schedule and what you go through three hours before show time?

MW: Well, basically we make sure we have everything we need to have done. Water backstage. Everyone’s theme music on the laptop. Videos ready for projection on the big screen. Then it’s just mic and equipment tests and whatnot – as the guys (and girl) work out in the ring. Make sure everyone’s merch is on the table. Talk things out with my partners to make sure we’re all on the same page, and there aren’t any concerns. I sit around, and try to get rid of the butterflies because I do still get them. 20-30 minutes before the doors open, I call everyone backstage for the rules of the night, and the pre-show meeting. Then I go upstairs, we open the door, and it’s showtime. I greet fans, because I’m friendly. I hit up the bathroom, because I’m on commentary all night and get no breaks. And I probably eat something in those 3 hours – because I’m fat.

Q: Who are some of the names on the independent scene that fans need to look out for?

MW: Frankie Arion is the guy who more people need to be watching AND booking. Same goes for guys like Dan Barry and Mathieu St. Jacques.

Q: What are your future plans?

MW: To keep having fun, and entertaining people for as long as we can. I want to turn the craziness up 10 notches, and see what happens. My dream, however, is to run a show at the old ECW Arena.

Q: When and where are your next couple of shows?

MW: Our next show – BURGER KING OF THE RING – will take place on July 23 at the Heirloom Arts Theatre in Danbury, Connecticut. Really excited for that one, as it’s our first ever tournament show. I’m a huge fan of tournaments. We’ll also be presenting the first EVER “Fans Bring the LEGO Deathmatch” to ever take place on American soil. An Inter Species Wrestling original. Really excited for all of it.

We’ll also be involved in the big “Fighting Back – Wrestling with Cancer” show on August 12 in Ottawa, Canada. A show in honor of my good friend, and a huge part of the Inter Species Wrestling family – Phrank Morin – also known as “Stinky the Homeless Guy.” We lost him to cancer on April 1, and this will be our night to pay tribute – with all proceeds going towards a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in his name. Every Inter Species Wrestling show from here on out will take place in his memory.

If you’re in the area for either of these shows – come check ‘em out!

Q: Where can workers contact you if they are looking for work?

MW: We have a contact page on our website, ( with instructions on how to go about contacting us for work. We don’t like people getting at us on Twitter or Facebook. We’re very old school, if we want to know who you are, where you’ve been, who trained you – and where we can see some of your work. We’ve got to get a feel for your personality because if it doesn’t come across – it’d be hard for us to use you as part of our style of product.

Green Lantern thoughts

I watched Green Lantern in 3D this weekend. I liked it, I didn't love it. It's not a bad movie at all. It was missing that movie magic that made you feel you think "WOW, that was a great adventure". I felt this way when I watched Iron Man and I'm not an Iron Man guy. There were a couple of plot holes that I have a hard time looking past. I was really concerned Ryan Reynolds would do a disservice to Hal Jordan and I was wrong. He was great but hindered by the script he was given to work with.

For any Green Lantern fans who didn't like the movie, I have one thing to say. WE SAW HAL JORDAN ON THE SILVER SCREEN. This is a moment GL fans have waited for. Not every superhero movie can be The Dark Knight. Don't let the reviews get you down. Most of the reviews I read were written by folks who were unfamiliar with Green Lantern's story.

Do you really want to help the Green Lantern franchise? Don't whine and complain. Instead, challenge Warner Bros. Dare them to be great. The movie cost $300 million dollars to make. There will not be a sequel if the movie falls below their expectations. Let them know this hero's character has an amazing story that people can sink their teeth into. Making some changes to improve future releases can be done if the people in power know it. Otherwise Green Lantern will get the Superman Returns treatment but, without the reboot.

Monday Night Raw Review (06.20.2011)

It's monday night and it's time to fire up the DVR for yet ANOTHER jaded view at the world of Monday night Raw. or better yet, if you don't like my reviews, than i advise you to watch me make Snow Angels....

Now it's clear i am a CM Punk fan and in turn an ROH fan, i will back any ROH regular that gets signed...But i digress. CM punk comes out and does what nobody else is doing...writing his own script. Anyone that can go out there and do whatever they want as long as they get the right point across is doing the right thing in this business. It's just too bad Vince is gonna let him leave. If the "Sheets" are correct, Punk will bail when his contract ends...and if he doesnt get what he wants in negotiations than he will be completely justified. He is the best WWE wrestler without a push going today. And everyone has their favorites and will say stuff like that but lets be fair, the main has been Top champion multiple times, and honestly is a little too young to be relegated as the guy "Who makes guys" and thats it. Randy Orton got the role of making people in recent years but he is still on top. Punk is being diminished...The nexus fizzled out like a bad fart no matter what anyone says and its becoming a bad thing to be associated with. Our Modern day Jim Jones doesnt need the Nexus, unless it REALLY adds something, and it only adds a little in this marks opinion. My Hopeful prediction is simply, CM Punk gets the title off Cena, and the two fight over it to Summerslam...with Cena getting the belt back before Mania against the rock. Here's hoping

Midcard Notes:
- If you ever wanted to know how worthless the Divas title, this match proves it. Not the quality of the match, i mean the fact that a writer somewhere actually said "Whoever wins the vote is winning the title". Granted, the popular vote becomes the champion, but if you told moolah she was gonna drop the belt to a random person with no build, she'd put her cigar out on your ball bag. I thought Lawler wasn't allowed around children anymore.

- Kelly Kelly said it was her first Divas championship, One of the commentators said she had won it before. One of them is lying lol

- Ok, They say Sin Cara isn't over, but personally i think the result of this vote was that...Evan Bourne isn't over. The "people" chose Evan getting decimated by a big fucker from Whales over seeing a spot fest with Sin Cara.

- ha someone bitched at cole for saying Kelly had won the title before...Kelly 1, Cole Nothing

- Yikes, I know i dont like saying things about the in ring work but fucking shit is Mason Ryan Terrible.

- Kane vs Mark Henry in...Any Match Sucks

- I got Okie Doked by Little Jimmy

- 2 Out of 3 falls for the US Title, I love the idea, Dolph Ziggler is one of my All Stars...really decent match

- Im gonna say this right now, Im not the hugest fan of Zack Ryder, but if the WWE doesn't use this twitter/Text request show to have him as a choice...then they are really fucking with him.

Punk is RAW part 2
CM Punk just announced that his contract expires the day after the Money in the Bank PPV, and that he IS leaving. Now whether or not this is bullshit or not, CM Punk sold this PPV in ONE FUCKING LINE OF DIALOGUE. Any buys that PPV does over the normal ammount is thanks to CM Punk. Remember that. The internet has been a buzz about his contract expiring soon, and the WWE does what no other promotion can. Where some promotions cater to the 10 Percent, WWE turns the 10 Percent into 100 percent. 10 percent of the wrestling community knew about Punks Impending departure, and rather than setting this match up without mentioning he was leaving and letting the 10 percent simmer about whats gonna happen next, CM Punk announced he was leaving and made each and every WWE fan aware of what could possibly be a work and converted the audience. Take that Impact Wrestling

- always like seeing Daniel Bryan on Raw, and im a fan of Cody rhodes so i can only hope for the best...

- What the fuck is a No Countouts match...I mean i know what it is, but how did that match make people choose it?

- Ted Dibiase finally gets the role of a lifetime...Cody Rhodes' Girlfriend

- Dance Off...Piss Break

The Ryder Revolution??
Ok so apparently people are buying the t-shirts, and wanting to buy the headbands, and everyone seems to be riding the wave of "Zack Ryder's Revolution" created by his Internet Buzz. They snubbed him in Long Island...his work hometown and now, on a show that relys heavily on internet participation he is left completely off raw. Granted he will probably be on superstars..but 6 people watch superstars and that means Zero. Do i care about him...No, but do i think WWE could capitalize on it...Sure. They are either completley missing it, or they are letting it simmer like the Matt Hardy rehiring years ago. Who Knows, but if they let it burn too long it could burn out before they can make the most money. Either way, im not reviewing the 6 Man main event.

I'd also like to take a moment to mention Impact wrestling. Im not a huge fan of the show but i record it every week and fast forward through it. One thing i couldnt fast forward through however was Austin Aries having a 3 way match all by himself. He was in the ring with Kid kash and Jimmy Rave, but he would have done just as well against a Toaster and a Microwave. If thats what wrestling means to TNA than it could change TNA. If they miss the boat on a guy like Austin Aries and what he is capable of ... Fuck them. Eric Young gets minor points for beating up Wayne and challenging Chachi. Could be a fun watch is hoping.

and thats it for another week, I'm Todd Graham and this has been One Mark's Review

No love for Green Lantern

I'm seeing the Green Lantern movie tonight and I haven't read a single good review. Still, I'm not going to let the reviews stop me from enjoying myself. I like to read reviews. I don't put much stock into them. We live in an age where people can't enjoy anything and suspend reality. Instead, we have to be objective and analyze every nook and cranny.

The movie is too predictable if its identical to the comic book and you ruined our hero forever if you dare deviate from the source material. You can't make everyone happy. There are even some people who didn't like Avatar. I'm one of them. In the end, you like what you like. Enjoy yourself.

Super 8

 The wife and I saw Super 8 last weekend while enjoying the IMAX experience. I like it a lot. The film grabed my attention from the start as I was captivated from begining to end. The story and it's characters were carefully crafted which made everything fit together. Super 8 has a little bit of everything, providing suspense, horror and a little romance. It has a great cast and everyone played their part to the letter.

The story follows six middle schoolers who film zombie movies with a Super 8 camera. One night, the kids film a pivital scene, using their local train station as a back drop. The train crashes and unleashed a monster that reeks havoc on the town. The movie kind of had an E.T. feel to it. This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time and I know we are going to see the six kids in many a movie.

NCW Payback RESULTS 6/17/2011

Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Jacob Jones VFW Post in Dedham MA on June 17th for the Payback.

Venue: Jacob Jones VFW Post
Ring Announcer: Shane Daly
Referees: Red Roche, Dan Tanaka, Matt Calamare, & Chris Dinapoli
Commentary: CJ Higgins & Maniacal Mark

1. Singles Match
"The Anti-social Anarchist" Tim Kilgore (198 lbs, Salem MA) vs. Taka Sazuke (199 lbs, Tokyo Japan)
Tim Kilgore put a damper on Taka's NCW debut by pinning him following a cobra clutch into a Russian leg sweep.

2. Singles Match
"The Devil's Reject" Brandon Webb (222 lbs, Salem MA) vs. "The Knight Angel" BerZerker (190 lbs, City of Bloodhaven)
The referee threw the match out and declared it a no contest when BerZerker went crazy during the match, nearly decapitating The Devil's Reject. Just before BerZerker was about to commit this horrifying act, Amanda the camera girl threw a note in to the ring that had a name on it, supposedly the name of the person that caused Cenobite's disappearance earlier in the season.

After the match, NCW New England Champion, "The Showoff" Mike Paiva, made his way to the ring and proceeded to call out NCW Heavyweight Champion, Ruy Batello. Batello came out and wanted the match right then and there. Paiva managed to escape "the Portuguese Sensation" but the match later in the night was made into a No Disqualifications Match.

3. Singles Match
Jack Krueger (196 lbs, Schillar Park CT) vs. "Cam Denile" (227 lbs, Schillar Park CT)
Before the match started, Krueger announced that Cam was not in the building because a phone call had been made telling him that his kids were in the hospital (but this was just a ruse by the vile Krueger). Cam's music played and out came... well, it was supposed to be Cam Denile, but it was really "Chaotic" Chris James of the Enterprise, dressed as Cam. Jack Krueger proceeded to beat the tar out of his unscheduled opponent and finally finished him off with a double-arm DDT.

When the beatdown continued, 2010 Rookie of the Year, Eddie Loomis made his way to the ring to save Chris from further harm. Eddie then challenged Jack to a match which Jack accepted.

4. Singles Match
Jack Krueger (196 lbs, Schillar Park CT) vs. Eddie Loomis (150 lbs, Plainfield CT)
Eddie's amateur wrestling skills were enough to help him score the victory over the maniacal Jack Krueger.

After a brief intermisson, the 2010 Season Cup was defended for the first time.

5. 2010 Season Cup Defense
Michael Tootsie Esquire (MTE) (175 lbs, Seekonk MA) vs. (c) Steve "the Turtle" Weiner (230 lbs, The Dockside of Providence RI)
Just as the Turtle was looking to put away MTE with his Kingdom Hearts Spinebuster, Big Adam interfered, leveling the shell-wearing hero and drew the disqualification for MTE.

Big Adam and MTE continued to attack Weiner until NCW Commissioner, Dean "the Beast" Livsley, came to his aid. Livsley declared that the match would now be a triple threat match for the Season Cup.

6. Triple Threat Match for the 2010 Season Cup
Michael Tootsie Esquire (MTE) (175 lbs, Seekonk MA) vs. (c) Steve "the Turtle" Weiner (230 lbs, The Dockside of Providence RI) vs. Big Adam (340 lbs, Boston MA)
Following a disagreement over who would pin the Cup holder, Weiner got the upperhand on his two opponents, eventually pinning MTE to retain the Season Cup.

After the Season Cup was defended, BerZerker made his way out to the ring and demanded that Amanda the camera girl tell him why she gave him the paper with the name on it. Richard Pacifico and an accomplice came out of the crowd and attack the Knight Angel. Pacifico revealed himself to be the man who attacked Cenobite. As the two were beating on the masked man, Cenobite emerged from the back to aid his Heaven's Fury partner. The two cleared the ring of Pacifico and his partner in crime and then celebrated Cenobite's return with the camera girl.

7. Singles Match
"Simply the Best" GA West (88 kg, Manhattan NY) w/ the Firm vs. "The Juice" JT Dunn (180 lbs, Detroit MI w/ Amber
The Juice scored a huge win when he pinned GA West after a hurricanrana

8. 5th Match in a Best of 7 Series
Buddy Romano (185 lbs, Warwick RI) - 2 Wins vs. "Dynamite" Doug Summers (201 lbs, Panic PA) - 2 Wins
Coming in to this match, both men were tied at two victories a piece in their best of 7 series. Buddy Romano did a number on his opponent's leg before finally making Doug tap out to a modified single leg crab. Buddy Romano now leads the Best of 7 Series with 3 victories, and is just one win away from holding on to his $2000.00 tax refund check.

Before the next match, one half of the NCW Tag Team Champions, "Impact" William Thorne, made his way to the ring and announced that he and his partner would not be defending the Tag Team titles as originally planned. Due to a family emergency, "RIOT" Kellan Thomas was unable to make it to Dedham for their first scheduled title defense. The Granite State Wrecking Crew emerged from the back and demanded their match. When Thorne explained why the match couldn't happen, the two men decided that they were going to attack the Tag Team Champion. Just as things were about to get underway, Thorne was given some assistance by an unlikely ally, one half of Project: Lethal.

9. Tag Team Match
The Granite State Wrecking Crew ["The Granite State Destroyer" Gunar Rowe & "The Unequaled One" Todd Sople] vs. NCW Tag Team Champion "Impact" William Thorne & Kevin Cordeiro
Gunar Rowe pinned Kevin Cordeiro to score the win for the Granite State Wrecking Crew.

10. Non-title Champion vs. Champion No Disqualifications Match
NCW New England Champion "The Showoff" Mike Paiva (165 lbs, "The City of Champions" Brockton MA) vs. NCW Heavyweight Champion "The Portuguese Sensation" Ruy Batello (320 lbs, Lisbon Portugal)

Monday Night Raw Review (06.13.2011)

It's Monday Night, and My DVR is fired up, let's take a jaded view at a new episode of Monday Night Raw.

The Reason
I was asked recently why, on PZW TV (, i love doing the long speeches and the long in ring promos, Stone Cold Steve Austin came out and gave me my best argument. Last week i said Stone Cold's decision making sucks, or at least the writers would have you believe, based on taking his balls away in his special guest referee roles. But Austin came out and Did 20 minutes setting up the show and just being Austin. they played a little with the Idea of Miz vs Austin, but dont get your hopes up. they gave del rio some time in the ring with Austin which is decent...then they ruin any momentum he could have had by putting him in the ring with Kane. Dont get me wrong, Kane is ok, im just not a fan. but at the conclusion they managed to make Big show look compelling by having him smash rodriguez to bits, until Kane had to choke Big Show to get him off. the big show is a Monster, book him like one.

Midcard Thoughts
- Putting Sin Cara and Daniel Bryan together as a team is a good idea, as long as they plan on having Cara work with Bryan to learn the American style. (Atlee Greene)
- Ted Dibiase Jr. is Still boring and it will not change, it's too late, he has entered "Permanent Jobber Status"
- I read that the Spring Cleaning has begun by firing a few developmental guys...the least of which that surprises me is Michael tarver, of all the original NXT guys, that guy had nothing to offer.

John cena is always booked like superman, always wins, always survives, lives to fight another day, unstoppable...right? R-Truth just no sold the Mother Fucking T Shirt Cannon....AT POINT BLANK RANGE. R-Truth is officially ready for Cena. It would be no surprise to me if this conversation actually came up in a production meeting. "How do we make him look like he can beat cena?" ... "Have him take a shot in the stones with the Tshirt cannon and have him beat up a midget"...Yeah that's the ticket. And then they announce John Morrison is going to fight R-Truth...WAAAAAAAAY the fuck ahead of his healing schedule. Unless that match is "Headlock, Bodyslam, Pin" than im gonna be very disapointed with the WWE for potentially hurting a future main eventer by breaking him too many times for shows that don't mean a fucking thing....but in retrospect, no WWE show means anything anymore..

More Midcard Thoughts
- Almost believed for a second Santino had a prayer, till reality set in. Also, Looks like Malenko taught Lobster head a new move.
- The VIPER RETURNS TO RAW...He's been gone for a cup of coffee...And Smackdown and Raw are both WWE 12'....see what i did there?
- haha Hugh Jackman needs a new mic, well at least he knows he hasnt been gone long from raw
- FINALLY someone who said the same thing i have been thinking forever...Edge>Christian
- Is it Just me or is Randy Orton the guy who says things that can be considered a little close to the vein? Eddie, Edge (not so much but still), just makes me wonder if Randy were around in 99, would he be making Owen Hart can't fly jokes?
- Dolph Ziggler is one of my picks for future main eventer, and losing Vicky is a good idea. Vicky is a good heat magnet, but he needs to prove he can do it on his own. this segment was a "one Line of dialogue will fix this" feel to it.
- In an update to my earlier post....Little jimmy got johnny....Glad they didnt fuck around with Morrison.
- Evan Bourne...See Ted Dibiase
- Piper's Pit...Not one of the best...but not bad either. Riley is a future star, he is over, let's see how long he can ride this wave.
- Did i just see a 48 Divas tag match come and go without a tag?

Now ever since this All Star game came out, there has been a war of words, granted all bullshit, but there have been words between captain straight edge and the drunk wifebeater Steve Austin. Punk even speculated that with both of them on the show WWE could "fuck up" by not putting the two together. Then they were face to face, and immediately Punk shoots on the fact that , Sure Andy won tough enough, but half the people in tough enough were signed to Developmental anyway. nice touch. the back and forth was spot on, if Austin wanted another match, he could make the marks happy with a match with punk...If Austin ever gets into the ring again it will be with Cena, but its nice to think about it.

Final Thoughts
That Mother Fucker Missed the Laptop bahahahahahahahaha

Oh, by the way...Did anyone catch this week's vlog show on Wrestlezone? Yeah...Me Neither
