CvC 2.0. Who Was the Real First WWE Diva: Sable or Sunny?

Posted by Kari on June 29, 2011 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Red Division

Tim Nguyen vs. Ryan Frye

The Real First WWE Diva: Sable or Sunny?

Well my friends, the first question posed to me in the opening round of the CvC 2.0 competition is, who was the real first WWE Diva: Sable or Sunny?

To answer this question, I look back at which one had the greatest overall influence, most memorable moments and lasting legacy during their run(s) in the WWE.

That diva would be Sable.

To start off, I provide some history and backdrop.

When I was a younger lad immersed in the wrestling industry, there were many stars that I looked up to. Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Sycho Sid, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, Undertaker.

Owned all the action figures, read the magazine, memorized the moves. Everything. Wrestling nerd at its finest.

 

It was pre-WWF Attitude era, a post-Hulk Hogan era with no one huge definitive star but more of a collection of high-level stars, all fighting one another on a pretty even playing field for wrestling supremacy. It was more direct competition with one another and “who could outshine who” for dominance in the business rather than reliance on the one huge star or the mercy of those backstage pulling the strings that determined “the man”.

WrestleMania 12 was the first WrestleMania that I got my dad to get for me for my birthday. I was eight years old and wanted to see the Iron Man Match between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart.

While watching the event, a lesser match on the card caught my attention. It was the Ultimate Warrior vs. then supreme jobber Hunter Hearst HelmsleyOh how quickly times change. Though it was a squash match, the female valet accompanying HHH to the ring caught my attention. Here and then the wrestling world was introduced to the woman they called “Sable.”

After the events of that night unfolded, we were left wondering who was this woman and what role would she play in the WWF.

Almost with that introduction, it was as if a changing of the guard was taking place.

 

We wanted to know more about that beautiful woman. More questions, more mystery.

The WWF was slowly transforming itself from the family-friendly show to a more TV-14, mature audience one.

Sablexx_350x420_774211a_original_original_crop_340x234

Sable in her classic look during her first WWE run

Rocky Maivia turned from baby-face Samoan good guy to the cocky, villainous Rock.

Hunter Hearst Helmsey went from Greenwich snob to HBK’s bad boy sidekick. 

Almost as if the audience dictated the content of the show with their concurrent and projected adolescent (and hormonal) desires.

Hence, the Attitude Era was born which would shape everything we know and love about pro wrestling.

For the male wrestlers, it meant violent bloody matches, weapons used from ringside and swearing like it was nobody’s business. It was Montreal Screw-job, Stone Cold Steve Austin just whooped your ass and the People’s Elbow at its finest.

For the girls, it meant sex, sex and more sex. We wanted to see more of the women in a sexual way, more than just a good daddy’s little girl.

 

But what prompted it all this change? For that answer, we take a look at Sable.

Diva? What’s a Diva?

In fact, Sable coined this term for herself and subsequently all the women in the WWE at a RAW in 1999.

Thus christened an era.

She embodied everything the first Diva would: Wrestling ability and supreme looks. She was truly the total package.

And in my view, she wasn’t just good looking, she was the BEST looking.

Sable was first introduced to the WWE as Marc Mero’s valet. When the fans (and I’m referring specifically to the male ones), began to take notice of her..ahem assets, her popularity grew and her role changed to fit the demand. People were watching RAW not only for the wrestling drama but to see what she would do (or wear). It was the start of using female sex appeal to draw fans.

She turned from gorgeous female valet who never spoke to providing some of the most shocking in ring moments that we know today from women in the WWE.

 

Who can forget Fully Loaded 1998, when she wore a potato sack into the ring before taking it off to reveal her entry into the first-ever bikini contest against Jaqueline—two handprints Hollywood Walk of Fame-Style imprinted on her breasts.

Exposing her bare breasts live on a WWF pay-per-view?

Sable-wwe-diva-6_original_crop_340x234

First Playboy Cover

Yup, definitely a first at the time.

She was also a formidable female wrestler for her time, winning the WWF Women’s Championship during her first run, becoming only the second Women’s Champion of the the re-introduction of the belt. Her finisher was a power bomb, a very strong move for a female to perform, and she called her version’s The Sable Bomb.

Her presence created a demand for women competitors again in the WWE, more as duel package of wrestling and looks rather than looks alone. This drove the demand for the re-introduction of the Women’s belt.

She also appeared in four WrestleManias, competing in three of them. She successfully defended her Women’s title against Tori in WrestleMania XV.

Her ability to reinvent herself multiple times during her two stints in the WWE speaks volume to her talents as well.

 

She bravely came back to the WWE for a second stint after a messy fallout with Vince McMahon the first time around. Yet, she was still popular as ever and it was if she never left in the first place. She was in the top feuds against Stephanie McMahon, Dawn Marie and Torrie Wilson in her part deux.

Torrie-white-and-sable-black-torrie-wilson-274001_310_352_crop_340x234

Sable and Torrie Wilson

Among her many firsts, one of her most notable feats (and to the delight of many male fans), Sable was first WWE diva to appear on the cover of Playboy.

She appeared in popular men’s magazine three times. Twice in 1999 and in 2004 when she shared a spread with other WWE hottie Torrie Wilson, another first. When she appeared in the magazine the first time in April 1999, sales were so high in some places that they had to redistribute copies from other areas to meet demand. That issue was one of the most popular of all time in Playboy’s history.

In addition, Sable has shown her talents to the world outside the ring into movies and TV, with roles in productions like Pacific Blue, Relic Hunter and Corky Romano.

Sable was a pioneer. She defined an era in the WWF. Easily in the most popular era of the WWE and when the WWE was at its peak, Its star female was Sable. Arugably the most lusted WWE Diva of her time. The winner and first real WWE Diva is Sable.

Hulk Hogan Labels Ex-Wife ‘Delusional’ for Domestic Violence Allegations

Posted by Joe Wrestling on under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

After Linda said on the ‘Today’ show she feared for her life around him, pro wrestling icon Hulk made a call to the ‘Bubba the Love Sponge’ radio show to claim his innocence.

Hulk Hogan is firing back at his ex-wife’s allegations that he was violent during their marriage. After Linda Hogan opened up on the “Today” show that she was often physically abused by him, the wrestling legend phoned in to the “Bubba the Love Sponge Show” radio show to share his side of the story and claim his innocence.

On Tuesday, June 28, Hulk told the radio host that Linda’s domestic violence claims are nothing but “delusional”. Branding the abuse talk as a “total, blatant lie”, he stressed, “Dude, I never laid a hand on her.” The 57-year-old continued to say that there is “no reason” to defend himself against his ex, and blasted her for trying to exploit him.

Hulk explained, “If you step back and take a really good look at this – if you take the Hulk Hogan name out of her situation, her life, her career, the air she breathes… she’s out of gas.” He added, “She’s still riding on the Hulk Hogan name. Just take her and put her in the same category with the Iron Sheik and the Ultimate Warrior. They all belong together.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Linda sat down with Matt Lauer on “Today” to talk about her new book, “Wrestling the Hulk: My Life Against the Ropes”, in which she details Hulk’s alleged violent behavior.
Asked by the anchor if he would apologize afterward, she replied, “He did not feel remorse, and to this day he’s never apologized for any of actions.”

“That is something that scared me. I did not want to be a statistic like Nicole Simpson,” Linda admitted further. On why she never contacted the authorities, she explained, “I was afraid to say anything. Had I said something, the carpet would have been pulled up underneath his career. I don’t know what my kids would have done. They were little at the time. It’s a very scary position.”

WWE CvC 2.0: The "Ultimate-X" Match Is the Best TNA Creation Till Date

Posted by Joe Wrestling on under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Black Division

Iam D Real Deal yo vs Nate Scaccia

Best TNA Match Type Of All Time 

Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling is a professional wrestling business that has been running for the past nine years. Since its formation, the company has seen the debut and growth of many athletes, personalities and wrestling concepts.

The unique six-sided ring was an entirely new and intriguing concept by itself, but in my honest opinion it is out-shined by another creation: the “Ultimate-X” match.

Yes, the Ultimate-X match according to me is, the best type of TNA match as I compete with Nate Scaccia (his article) whilst representing the Black Division.

The “Ultimate-X” match is my choice as the Best Type of TNA Match. Many of you who currently or in the past have followed TNA religiously would have loved this type of match. To put it simply: the concept is totally awesome (seeing as this is a CvC contest more than anything else).

I have the usual IWC-member tendencies, wherein I feel the need to dissect things from every angle. A few questions always come to my mind, like,  ”Why the Ultimate-X match? What makes it so great? How can you call it the best type of TNA match?” The reasons are plenty, and I am here to tell you so.

First of all, what is an “Ultimate-X” match? For those of you who don’t know, it is a match which involves two ropes hung from four steel girders which run in such a way that they form an X at the point of intersection of the two ropes. This is the point at which the title is hung. In order to win the match, the wrestler has to reach it, unhook the belt, and return to the floor. 

 

Here are the reasons that the Ultimate-X match is, indeed, the best type of TNA match of all-time.

 

Code 1: It is a Natural TNA Creation

Honestly speaking, there are many matches which tend to bring out the best in wrestlers and send the crowd home satisfied. But I’ve realized that the gimmick-based matches we see on TNA are all more or less the same as those we’ve witnessed in the WWE. The rules and the names have been altered slightly, but the concept is the same.

The Ultimate-X match, on the other hand, is entirely different. Seeing as we are strictly talking about the best type of TNA match (a.k.a. best type of match), which can be synonymous with TNA Wrestling, this match takes the cake.

My only argument with this code is that non-TNA novelties would not fit well with the TNA audience. Speaking about TNA from the fans’ perspectives (and not from the perspectives of Hogan and Bishoff, who try to compete with the WWE at all levels), we need to realize that we do in fact view the two companies differently.

One is a billion-dollar enterprise and the other is an alternative (TNA) to it which survives on the hardcore fans who have fallen in love with it.

The Ultimate-X match carries with it all the nostalgia associated with the Golden Days of TNA and has been the home turf to some of the greatest TNA matches of all-time.

 

This fact alone makes it a great contender to be the best type of TNA match.

 

Code 2: The Scope is Endless

Another prominent feature of this type of match is that it not only gives the wrestler a huge scope for entertaining the fans and telling a story, but it lacks restrictions. For instance, fans love a steel cage match, but the fight is usually restricted to the cage alone.

Suicide_dive_____x__759127a_crop_340x234

Nothing beats a (TNA) Capture like this

On the other hand, in an Ultimate-X match, there are no boundaries; you can fight inside the ring, outside the ring, and even through the crowd—basically anywhere you want to.

Weapons? You got it. Not only does this match provide for some great high flying action, but wrestlers can use weapons to hit each other as well. We all love matches with these hardcore roles. In a way, this encompasses many high-risk maneuvers as well, which we also love to see.

Need to fly higher? Go ahead. The high-fliers in pro wrestling are always good for entertaining the crowd whilst both taking and giving offense. The ropes hung above the ring act as the biggest sources of inspiration for wrestlers to execute many maneuvers beautifully.

Many of the stunts, which can be described as sick and entertaining at the same time, can be performed via these ropes as well. So in a way, there is substantial inspiration to do something big and make an “impact” in a true sense. 

 

Weight limit? I don’t think so. Another good thing about this match is that there is no weight limit for its wrestlers, which is good because some non-cruiser weights, and some people who are just a tad heavier than cruiser weights, do have the ability to perform exciting moves in these matches. The lack of any weight limit broadens the scope of talent that can be involved this match, which is another positive.

 

Code 3: True Spirit of Wrestling 

Before I begin speaking towards this point, I would just like to say that this is not the only such match which seems to encompass the true spirit of wrestling. Many other matches, such as classic cage matches, Royal Rumble matches, and Ladder matches also have that nostalgic tinge to them, as they were made famous during the good old golden days of wrestling.

The Ultimate-X match, for me at least, is a such creation which reminds of those days. 

And by the spirit of wrestling, I mean, ”The display of supreme in-ring talent and abilities, consisting of high-risk maneuvers, crazy spots, twists and turns—basically telling a story in a match, whilst both taking offence, giving offence and still managing to be entertaining”

These Ultimate-X matches provide a large scope, which enables the wrestlers to do many things. As explained above, these matches pretty much ensure that the wrestlers will give fans a dose of good wrestling.

 

Truth be told, when the spotlight is on you and people are watching and waiting to be entertained by you as a wrestler, you are bound to go out there and give it your best.

To put it in simply, once again: the Ultimate-X match brings out the BEST in Wrestlers, and as fans of pro wrestling, there is nothing more we could dream of.

These three reasons pretty much sum up why the Ultimate-X match is the best type of TNA match to date. I hope you were convinced, but if you need some more convincing, I present to you a super code: history supports my claims.

My argument rests on the notion that the best TNA matches we have seen to date have included Ultimate-X matches. The matches between the Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money Inc. was a great match, and so was the match between Styles, Chris Sabin and Petey Williams.

But the match which takes the cake as the Greatest TNA match ever (i.e. the triple threat match between Chris Daniels, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe) was ALSO an Ultimate-X match.

Thus, in my opinion, the Ultimate-X match is in fact the best type of TNA match to date.

I hope you were convinced; don’t forget to vote for me if you were. Thank you for being my audience.

Wrestling belt maker gets a boost from Super Bowl champs

Posted by Joe Wrestling on under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

<!–Saxotech Paragraph Count: 10
–>

Championship wrestling belts aren’t expected to become a fashion trend.

But their exposure — first in pantomime by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and then on full display by Rodgers and teammate Clay Matthews on a podium after the Super Bowl — have spiked some sales and helped professional wrestling creep into mainstream sports.

“Teenagers and adults want something to remind them of champions,” said Steve Sandberg, chief executive officer of Wrestling Super Store, the Tampa, Fla.-based company that produced the belt on Rodgers’ shoulder after the Packers’ win over the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

That belt cost $279, he said. A children’s wrestling belt retails for $129.

Sandberg said his company had an increase in sales after the Super Bowl and hopes to ride the wave that Rodgers provided. But he admits that interest will be somewhat limited.

“People identify more with jerseys,” he said. “That’s something they can wear. The belt falls somewhere in the gray area, because it’s not going to hold up your pants, but you can go to a bar and take it with you.”

The Dallas Mavericks displayed one of Sandberg’s belts after they won the NBA title last week.

When Sandberg heard about Rodgers wrestling belt gestures during the 2010 season, he sent some belts to Green Bay in hopes of taking advantage of what he saw as a marketing opportunity. When the Packers won the Super Bowl, he made sure that one of his belts shared the limelight. Matthews purchased that belt.

“It kind of grew a life of its own,” Sandberg said.

The Packers Pro Shop won’t market the belts, because they’re not licensed by the National Football League, a Pro Shop prerequisite. And there’s nothing on the wrestling belts that identifies them with the Packers.

Wrestling show at Thayer Arena to benefit Special Olympics

Posted by Joe Wrestling on June 23, 2011 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

On Friday, July 1, the Renegade Wrestling Alliance (RWA), a local pro wrestling organization out of Pawtucket, will host “Legacy IV,” a wrestling event to benefit the Special Olympics of Rhode Island at the William H. Thayer Arena in Warwick.

The show starts at 7 p.m. and will last between two and a half and three hours. There will be at least four matches during the night.

Anthony DiIorio, co-founder of the RWA, said that he, James Hansen and Nick Gifford, the color commentator for the wrestling performances, all facilitated the planning of the event. They spoke with Thayer Arena manager Jim Dorney and Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation Mike Rooney.

“We negotiated with Thayer Arena so that we could have this event made possible,” DiIorio said. “They were nice enough to let us use their facility [for a standard rate] and it gives us more exposure about our organization.”

DiIorio also said that the assistance of Tracy Garabedian, director of event management at the Special Olympics of Rhode Island, was key in order to help spread the word about the event by posting flyers.

The ice rink will be covered with flooring for the event and a wrestling ring will be installed. The seating will be around the ring for the audience to view the matches.

Matches will include Triple Crown champion The Irish Warrior, who will be defending his title against 2011 Legacy Cup winner Vincenzo Abruzzi. In the RWA Tag Team Championship match, J.P. Hansen and Alex Corvis, both known as “Members Only,” will face Cipriano Abruzzi and “The Natural Truth” T. Phoenix.

There will be two other competitions with “The Perfect Gentleman” Logan Rose competing against Jason Devine and International champion “The Dean of Old School” Dante battling “The Hooligan” Tom Billington.

Every wrestler is a volunteer and they usually train a few times a week together, according to Gifford.

Since 2009, the RWA has performed 10 live shows in order to assist local charities, with the most recent at Ticker’s Sports Grill in Smithfield. The July 1 event will be the 11th show. Gifford said they are expecting a pretty packed house.

“Right now we are planning on having 300 people for the event,” he said. “It means that we could raise as much as $3,000 [for the Special Olympics].”

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. More information is available by contacting DiIorio at 529-1677 or the arena information line at 738-2000 ext. 6811. The RWA’s website, RWAWrestling.net, has more information about ticket purchases and their organization.

Not only does the RWA have live shows, but they also broadcast on TV throughout the state. RWA-TV is aired Tuesdays at 11 p.m. statewide on Cox Channel 13 and Verizon Channel 32, Fridays at midnight on Cox Channel 18 in Providence and North Providence only, and Verizon Channel 38 statewide.

Gifford said this occasion would be different from a typical sporting event.

“Too often when you go to a big name sports event, you don’t get your money’s worth, but at a family atmosphere event like this, you will get your money’s worth because it’s going toward a good cause,” he said.

Al Snow Talks TNA Wrestling’s Future, Wrestling’s Popularity, WWE

Posted by Joe Wrestling on June 22, 2011 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Former WWE ECW star and current TNA Wrestling agent was recently interviewed by Brady Hick, DJ, and Anthony Sarlo of Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s In the Room. Below are a few highlights of the interview:

How TNA is Positioned For the Future: I can tell you this … I have been impressed with just how hard everybody seems to work there. It’s just impressive. From the talent down, everybody really busts their hump and really puts in the time and the effort and the passion when it comes to those TV shows and pay-per-views … Sitting in those meetings, nobody ever says “Let’s just do this.” Everything is agonized over. Every single person works really hard, I couldn’t single one out.

On WWE and Impact Wrestling’s Recent Name Changes: WWE taking it out? I don’t care. They can call it whatever they want. They can call it farming. At the end of the day, it’s professional wrestling. That’s what they’re selling. Tell me one completely brand new thing that is now fake that is different or unique from TNA, from Mexico, from All Japan Pro Wrestling, from New Japan Pro Wrestling, wherever.

The Difference Between Setting Up Independent Shows and Doing Similar Work for TNA: How is [anything] different than TNA? Not really. Different perspectives or ideas, different talent, and that’s a BIG thing … Wrestling as a whole is and should always be entertainment. The reclassification that it’s no longer wrestling and that it’s entertainment is really just an attempt to say they reinvented the wheel and made something different. But I was there for 13, 14 years … and when the pyro stops, the music ended, and the bell rings, I’m really curious about what is done different in the one place than in the other.

Why Wrestling Has Become Less Popular: Everybody has played other sports growing up. You connect to it. That’s why hockey has got a bigger following in Canada, more people have played it. That’s why soccer is more popular in the rest of the world, everybody has played it. That’s why it’s going to continue to grow in the US, more kids play it. That’s why more men like sports than women. What happens with wrestling is that people are attracted to the characters and to the personalities. The only thing that has changed between 1911 and 2011 is that the crowd has gotten more sophisticated.

On His Mondo Wrestling A Go Go Show: It’s an adult circus, that’s the best way to describe it. It’s a combination of burlesque, aerial acts, circus acts, fire dancers … drag queens, drag KINGS – the lesbian equivalent of women that dress up as men – …, got a guy who has a fire whip … very intriguing, and then wrestling matches, the way I can best describe it is very old-ECW-like where the referees are just there to count the fall.
