“Hold On A Minute Playa…”

Randy Orton: Man of the People

Randy Orton: Man of the people… apparently

  • Three men – including the Tag Team Champions – defeating two is a surprise in WWE
  • ‘Fandangoing’ by yourself while thousands watch in silence can be “euphoric”
  • It’s been five years and nothing has worked, so let’s not change anything and hope Tamina gets over this time…
  • “A grown man is running away from plastic spiders”… I honestly don’t know why so many people decided to watch the NBA Playoffs instead of Raw this week…
  • For years Randy Orton claimed that he did not care about the fans…. What’s changed?
  • Jamie Noble’s right; WWE matches do not have time limits, so the guy at the wee table really should be called the “bell keeper”
  • Why do J&J Security wear earpieces? There is only two of them and they are always next to each other…
  • Randy Orton really likes The New Day
  • Chestnuts frying on an open fire; the new Christmas tradition
  • “If I ignore it, you just keep doing it” – will Ryback adopt this strategy when faced with the dreaded “What?!” chant?

Speaking of music…the late, great Luna Vachon also had a brief career in the music business as a backup singer to the heavy metal band called, Nasty Savage. The band really went nowhere…but at least Luna could say she pursued another dream of hers while she was alive.

Continuing with our look at unique and rare wrestling dolls…here is the super rare Psicosis doll that can sell from 40 bucks to 150 bucks depending on condition and packaging. Why is it rare? I have no idea….but to be honest the La Parka doll looks way cooler.


Did you know that the Von Erichs had their own comic book? Indeed they did back in 1989…It only featured Kevin, Kerry and Fritz for the obvious reasons…but still cool none the less.

And speaking of the late Luna Vachon…

Her son Van is a chef and doing very well for himself.

If Jim Johnston of the WWE is the master of music in wrestling…Jimmy Hart is a close second. Why Not? After all, Jimmy has a long background in the music business having been a member of the band ‘The Gentrys.’ Here he is in Memphis as a top heel manager…singing ‘We Hate School.’
