My Undertaker Story

Not sure if I ever shared this before, but I have what is kind of an interesting Undertaker story.

I don't fly anymore, but one of the last times I flew was to Connecticut so we could drive over to visit family in Massachusetts.

While in the airport we walked by this MASSIVE guy dressed in black. After we passed him I said to Dad, "I think that was (WCW's) "Mean" Mark Callous. He agreed because a guy like that does not blend in and is easy to spot.

Anyhow, this was November 1990 and it was the same week as Survivor Series (1990 in Hartford, CT) where The Undertaker debuted.*

It was pretty cool when we saw the recap of the PPV and realized that "Mean" Mark Callous had become The Undertaker the same week we saw him in that airport.

*He was first seen on TV at that show, but they filmed a match earlier that week to be aired after his Survivor Series debut. That match didn't air until December.

New Roman Reigns "Tougher Than Cancer" Shirts

WWE Shop dropped some new Roman Reigns shirts, and hoodies today. Branded as "Tougher Than Cancer" they are going to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

I think they are pretty slick looking, and I kind of wish I could justify buying a the hoodie. The gray shirt also comes in a women's and youth as well.

Me and my son are going to STARRCADE in December so I may look at picking up a t-shirt then.



Here's a video about the partnership.

I also meant to share the fine print on the donation aspect:

WWE will donate 20% of the Sales Price (before applicable sales taxes) of Roman Reigns “We Believe” and "Tougher Than Cancer" apparel and 100% of the Net Proceeds* from sales of “Believe in the Fight” Bracelets sold on www.wweshop.com to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, an organization whose mission is to cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and Myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. For more information about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society go to www.lls.org. While supplies last. This purchase is not tax-deductible.

* Net Proceeds means all revenue received from the sale of bracelets, less the cost of merchandise, fulfillment fees and any applicable credit card processing fees.

THE WAY BACK (2020) - Official Trailer



First I heard of this one was when Ben Affleck Tweeted it a few minutes ago. For whatever reason it grabbed my attention. I think I will give it a look.

I should add that I'm a big Affleck fan (Yes, even Batfleck and Daredevil) going way back to Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy which I believe was the first thing I ever saw him in.

CM Punk Makes Surprise Debut On WWE Backstage



It's been rumored for a while, but CM Punk showed up on WWE Backstage. Apparently the deal is that he's signed with FOX, and not WWE. Having him involved in any sort of WWE project is a big deal though regardless.

As for my thoughts on Punk, I've always put it this way.

For a period of time (Straight Edge Society through becoming WWE Champion) he was arguable my favorite wrestler in the world. By the end of his run that magic had faded. I've never clamored for his return, and certainly haven't chanted his name at WWE events.

I have, however, said that it would be really cool if he and WWE ever mended fences. While we may not be there yet, and an in-ring return may still never happen I will say I'm glad to see him back around the promotion in some manner.

Jason Momoa Shares Cut Scene From Justice League


View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies) on


I actually really enjoy Justice League. It's an easy watch, and a fun movie. It completely delivered so far as I was concerned (will not say that about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice however).

ANYHOW, if there's another cut out there or they can cobble another one together including footage like this I would be extremely fired up to check that out as well.

Here's a piece I read about all of this for that matter. It's a shame to me that we'll either never get Justice League 2 at all or at least that Ben Affleck has already exited the Batman role with Henry Cavill probably done with Supes as well.

I will, however, sign off on a follow-up that centers around Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Shazam! if they want to go that route. Bring back Cyborg and Flash for that one too.

SAW EXCLUSIVE: PTPW's Frazier & Keller Coming To A Very Merry ACTION Wrestling Christmas

UPDATE: President Gator will be making the trip down to Tyrone, GA with Frazier and Keller as confirmed by PTPW last night!

----------------------

As part of the working relationship between Washington DC's Prime Time Pro Wrestling and ACTION Wrestling, two talents are heading south to ACTION for the show in Friday, December 6th (A Very Merry ACTION Wrestling Christmas).

Isaiah Frazier will be teaming with Breaux Keller against The Gym Nasty Boys!

Before we get into this match let's talk a bit about this relationship between Prime Time Pro Wrestling, and ACTION. I reached out to CEO of ACTION Wrestling, Matt Griffin about the relationship between the two promotions, and he had the following to say.
"We are proud to build relationships with other promotions to benefit all of our wrestlers. Since their first show Prime Time Pro Wrestling has commanded attention in the Washington DC metro area and we're excited to trade talent and build a working relationship."
Mister Gator, President of PTPW responded with this when asked about Frazier and Keller's ACTION Wrestling debut.
“Prime Time is sending our very best to ACTION and we know ACTION fans will be Prime Time fans after seeing Isaiah Frazier and Breaux Keller in action. We are putting our best foot forward and hope to enjoy a long relationship.”
Back to the match at hand, I am very excited to see Keller team with Frazier. What I've seen of Frazier at a Scenic City event, I liked. What I've found on social media and elsewhere of Keller looks exciting as well.

WWE: Bret "The Hitman" Hart Signature Series Championship



While I cannot afford these, I absolutely love these Signature Series Championships WWE is releasing now.

As the article mentions this Bret Hart one is the third one, and it's my favorite.

Here are the nWo Hollywood Hogan and "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels ones though if you haven't seen them yet.

The concept of doing these customized titles for WWE Legends (and I hope some current stars too) is really sharp.
