This week, well-known wrestling trainer Kevin Knight joins Brady Hicks IN THE ROOM to talk about his IWF Wrestling school, some of its past students, and his current, most high-profile student: The Jersey Shore‘s Angelina Pivarnick. What does Knight think of Angelina and her true dedication to becoming a full-time wrestler? Tune in to find out. All that, plus, Brady and Kevin McElvaney talk Edge’s possible retirement, WrestleMania fallout regarding Trish Stratus, and TNA/”Network” nonsense. Best wishes for DJ to get some sleep and come back refreshed!
On How Serious Angelina Is:
She said she wants to give it a serious go and do some training the proper way and do more than one or two handsprings like Snookie did. I’m sure Snookie’s training consisted entirely of a few small things to help get her through what she had to do at WrestleMania. Maybe one day, [Angelina] will be able to do a really good singles matchon her own.

Just got to watch the speech. I really liked it and want to see what he does on SmackDown.
It has been pretty difficult for me to watch wrestling for the past 2 months now. With the change over to entertainment and that nonsense, along with the horrific garbage that is going on in TNA, I haven’t been able to do it. Sure I tuned in when The Rock was on, but dude, it’s The Rock.
Last night I turned it on to hear Wade Barrett complaining about The Corre, when Santino came out and created APPLE. When Cole said that this was going to be the pits, I admit, I started laughing, but changed the channel. Its not that I don’t love wrestling anymore, I do. It is my favorite thing. To me, it is just heartbreaking to watch something with so much potential, come out awful. I’ll just use WWE as an example. The amount of time they take away from the show to play recaps and movie premieres, and toot-your-own-horn did-you-know-facts, I just can’t do it. I can DVR it and fast forward to bits and pieces. But it literally hurts my brain to watch a full two hours and seven minutes, which translates to less than an hour and twenty minutes of new material? (just guessing)

Once again the wrestling world has lost another great name, but lucky its just too retirement and not the other. So many people that I know have said that “wrestling is fake, don”t you know” and everytime I am told this, its as if someone stabbed me in the heart. I wish they could have watched Edge go threw the WWE, expierenced and viewed the causes and the injuries he shared with his fans. Edge gave us great match after great match, from Kane to Matt and Jeff Hardy. He sacarificed his body in those TLC matches and cage matches, but the next week he was there. The wrestling life is very lonely, you go from town to town, meet people that have loved you for years and know more about your life than you do, and all the can say is Thank You and leave for the next show. Maybe they have regretted not getting to know certain fans a little more in depth and not staying in certain towns for longer so they can tour the sites.
My best memory will be when Edge was still debuting in the WWE, before the brother hood. He was doing run ins on the Jackayl, and I was sitting in my seat, and as he was running by a leaped out to grab him. My Mother was so scared that Edge was going to turn around and hurt me , she yanked me back into my seat, and asked what the hell I was doing. I told her I wanted Edge as a collectors item and I was centimetres away from him.
Edge to pray for a return would be selfish but I still will. In the mean time I wish you a normal life, at home, with a wife and kids and being able to run, walk and talk to them. Have a great life, you will be missed in your wrestling one.

In the words of famed crooner Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) in Irv Berlin’s Christmas-time classic White Christmas, “What do you do with a General, when he stops being a General?” Sitting in the studio last night talking about Edge with my IN THE ROOM cohost (and fellow Pro Wrestling Illustrated contributing writer) Kevin McElvaney, I couldn’t help but wonder that very question out loud.
What DO you do with a wrestler when he stops being a wrestler?

April 11, 2011, Voorhees, New Jersey–Following his loss to Adam Cole in the finals of the CZW Best of the Best X Tournament Saturday night, April 9th in Philadelphia at the former ECW Arena, “New Horror” Sami Callihan was understandably upset. Callihan, coming off of wins at recent tournaments such as the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup in 2010 and the wXw 16 karat Cup in Germany in 2011, went into the BOTB with all of the confidence in the world. Cole, who won the World-1 Hashimoto Memorial Cup 2010 and was voted as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Rookie of the Year 2010, achieved the most important win in his young career, while at the same time killing Callihan’s momentum going into the 15th Annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament on April 30th. To make matters worse, Cole is a crowd favorite at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey, which will host this year’s Super 8.

So WWE finally did it. No longer are they World Wrestling Entertainment but rather just WWE inc. This is something that has been talked about for quite some time, that WWE were going to take another big step away from being a professional wrestling organization. Ironically though they have also removed the ‘Entertainment’ part from their name and to me that is the real thing they are lacking right now. continue reading…
