    Yea I say it mostly in jest, just kills me when we hear how awful Miz is for missing truth after truth jumped early, then big show is hurting orton and barrett but its cool because its big show!

    and saying Clay needed more "experience" but then just sent him home? That was dumb, that's why NXT and Superstars exist

    Clay just worked a house show a day or two ago so he's back on the road for now.

    I think he means that the Observer is not always correct in their "facts".

    The Observer hated WCW because they were shit, especially compared to everything else that was going on at the time. In addition the "Observer not getting it's facts right" it pretty funny considering most people here read internet wrestling websites that copy their "Facts" from the Observer, and/or just make shit up like Wrestlezone. So at the end of the day the Observer really is a head of all other publications that are out there. (excluding the other proper ones like the Torch.)

    Hell, I read 411mania, but at least I have a fair idea when they are just making shit up or reporting spurious internet rumours.

    Oh and lastly, the other thing to consider is that you can't be sure those quotes were just made up, unless you actually own the observers or are prepared to wait 6 years for the old issues to go up on the internet. :)

    The Observer does get their shit right more often than not I'll admit.

    I have to agree that Brodus should be spending some time on TV backstage though, even if it is just to make a funny face after Natty farts or something.

    To be fair, I fired my fact-checker...eight years ago.

    Also, reporting on spurious internet rumours is so much more fun than actual reporting.

    I can see how that would be true.

    Funk, the Funkettes, and your momma are in a stable. You should call her to find out more info.

    Seriously though I've thought that there should really be a couple stables for awhile now. I was hoping with the Nexus they would get back to actually utilizing such things properly but we saw how quickly that fizzled out. Granted, they sort of blew their load quick and the stuff with Cena was almost painful after a month, but there was a glimmer of hope for a little bit at least!

    LMAO So they are covering Rocks "finally the rock has come back ..." catch phrase,

    and on the last one for Milwaukee, his voice kinda goes high and squeaks, he just looks out and has this little 'i hope no one noticed' smile, i laughed so hard.

    Man the shtick with Rock confusing famous catch phrases with his own is just hilarious, i can't believe i forgot about that.

    "And the Rock says this, Whatcha gonna do when the 24... no wait, thats not it, thats not it."

    "To be the man, Woooooo.. you got to beat the man... (looks around confused) thats not it."

    The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the original plan for the Divas at WrestleMania 28 was to have a Beth Phoenix vs. Natalya match. As reported earlier, many within WWE have been pushing for their to be no Divas match at the show, or to keep it as a dark match, so that the matches people are more interested in have as much time as possible. Kharma is apparently ready to face Phoenix at the show.
    After the Rock teased that he would appear at WrestleMania 29 in East Rutherford, New Jersey next year, sources within WWE have told PWTorch that Rock will be competing at the show.

    WrestleMania 29 is set for April 7th, 2013 at MetLife Stadium.

    Hooray, another year of WWE promoting a guy who isn't on the active roster.

    On an unrelated note here's a match from DDT featuring Viewtiful Joe.



    DDT is weird enough to be Japan's CHIKARA.

    His name makes a bit more sense now but they still need to drop "Ohno" and come up with a different last name that starts with "o". Also I wonder if his new finisher is this?:

    There's also a pretty unique move Hero does that starts out as a Rude Awakening-like neckbreaker motion but right before he's supposed to drop down he just let's go and elbows the guy in the back of the head. That could be a cool finish for him.

    Ah, here it is. It's called a "Death Blow"

    I prefer the Ripcord Rolling Elbow to the Death Blow, hopefully they use that or the Cyclone Kill if they're allowing Hero to keep using his strong style spam moveset.

    One of my favourite none PSJ thing from DDT:


    I think DDT have got CHIKARA beaten hands down in the weirdness stakes, of course they've been doing it quite a bit longer so that's to be expected really.

    ROH wrestlers wearing CHIKARA masks attacked Quack, Jigsaw and The Colony at "Caught in the Spider's Den" earlier tonight. This invasion angle is great.
