    Don't know if any of you used the news site 411 but Larry Csonka, my favourite wrestling writer, has died. I'm not sure of this age but he wasn't old.

    Anyone seen the 2 seasons of Dark Side of the Ring? Watched the first season and up to the end of the Chris Benoit bit of season 2.

    Some really * up stuff that I had no idea about like Dino Bravo being involved in the Mafia. It's available to download on sky and is 41 minutes per episode.

    The Dino Bravo stuff is quite well known, and wrestlers knew about it too.

    If you want dark things about wrestling look at all the rapey rumours about British wrestling flying about the past few days. Sad thing is nobody is surprised and yet we allow ourselves to be fans of an unregulated industry

    Yeah I've seen stuff flying around on Jack Gallagher, Matt Riddle, Velveteen Dream, Jimmy Havoc, the Cornettes amongst others.

    * up and no way should any of them be allowed away with this * if proven guilty

    The Dark Side of the Ring also had Fabulous Moolah involved in some shady prostitution way back

    The Knights are a weird bunch of * too. Made a 14 Yr old girl wrestle in a school girl outfit for a peado Brian Dixon. If you ever met them you would know they were * in the head especially Roy and Zak.


    Progress wrestling basically said if it didn't happen on our show we don't care. Osprey got a woman pulled from a show and blackballed from any company he worked with after his mate sexually assaulted her.

    The big issue is wrestling has no governing bodies like actual sports. In entertainment you can train kids but you generally need to be accredited too. Wrestling any * can open a school and more teenagers are going than before. None of them get checked up on. But UK wrestling will always have its fans who will stand by no matter what.

    Marty Jannetty confesses to killing a man on Facebook like it's an everyday thing, just how he confesses to beating and sexually assaulting women while on the road with Shawn Michaels in a bragging manner. I'm surprised Netflix haven't started a 3rd rate documentary series about this guy.

    Crazy that he lasted as long as he did. Glad he’s called it a day because from what he’s said and what I’ve seen, his body looks shot to bits. He’s more than earned his retirement.

    He was always my favourite wrestler when I was younger and definitely goes down as one of the best ever.

    He'll have his HOF induction probably when fans are back

    He should have retired at WM33 though

    Have you seen his interview with Helwani? The door remains opened should Vince phone him up, which he will.

    He’ll have another match at Mania IMO. Maybe even pre-recorded given the success of the last.
