Say goodbye to 2012 with an only slightly awkward interview between Tim Westwood and Stone Cold Steve Austin

December 31, 2011 by


Well, that’s the post-Christmas malaise over and done with then. PlayingRickyMorton strategically took a one-week holiday from the site to refrain from posting any of that “boy, we sure are stuffed with turkey, here’s some random bullshit we’d never consider for the site any of the other 51 weeks of the year” schtick that affects […]

Jim Cornette depresses me

December 24, 2011 by


I’d completely forgotten that I was following Jim Cornette on Twitter. He doesn’t post much, which is surprising. This is a man whose main contribution to the world of wrestling is that he was always ready to share whatever opinions he had on his mind at the drop of a hat, no matter how retarded […]

10. “Superstar” Billy Graham (born September 10, 1943) Who: You remember that bit in The Rutles where that old blues guitarist is all like “I invented the Everley Brothers, Frank Sinatra and Lawrence Welk” and his missus all “lol no?” Well, in wrestling that blues guitarist is “Superstar” Billy Graham and his wife is literally […]

30. Bob Orton Jr. (born November 10, 1950) Who: Ten-gallon hat-wearing pretend cowboy from Kansas City who started off his career wrestling under the Falcon Entertainment-friendly name of “Young Mr. Wrestling”. Appeared in the corner of Paul Orndorff and Rowdy Roddy Piper at Wrestlemania I, but thankfully he didn’t prioritise his wrestling career over his […]

40. Kurrgan (born October 26, 1969) Who: The workrate provider for both The Truth Comission and The Oddities. Went a number of months I can’t be bothered to calculate both undefeated and without being knocked to the floor, allowing Ken Shamrock to “get heat” by knocking him over in a Royal Rumble. Those were simpler times. […]

50. Ricky Morton (born September 21, 1956) Who:  The man who this very blog is named after. One half of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, a legitimate A-line star during the 80s, the king of the “face-in-peril” spot and one of the true greats of tag team wrestling. However, let’s ignore all of that and […]
