WWE.com has a piece up counting down the Top Ten ‘Unsuspecting Upsets’. The list includes Rey Mysterio winning the World Heavyweight Championship from Kurt Angle (in a bout with Randy Orton as well) Mickey Whipwreck defeating Steve Austin and Maven defeating The Undertaker to win the Hardcore Championship. You can check out the entire list at http://youtu.be/ANJdwmA5y5w.
Jim Ross has a new blog posted where he remembers Mr. Perfect Curt Henning, talks about Steve Austin’s new move deal and more. Here is part of the piece:
Can't help but think about Curt Henning aka Mr. Perfect today on the anniversary of his untimely passing. "Perfecto' was as good a natural athlete as I've ever been around in the wrestling biz. Curt starting so young and wrestling so much likely contributed to his lingering back injuries as back ailments are horrific for any performer in the sports entertainment biz. Curt was also one of the funniest guys that I ever worked with on commentary and had legit, natural timing much like a guy he watched while growing up, Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan.
Curt truly loved life and some could argue that he loved it a little too much at times. Nonetheless I value the relationship that we had and the fun doing WWE voice overs at the Stamford, Ct studios back in the day. Chief Jay Strongbow nicknamed Curt "Dennis the Menace" because of his mischievous demeanor at times.
Curt was one of my favorite wrestlers and when he was healthy he could hang with anyone. I am optimistic that his son Joe also know as Michael McGillicutty will be a main event level talent before all is said and done. I've seen Joe wrestle a great deal especially down in NXT and he has every thing he needs to be special. It's all about timing and right place at the right time but I'm confident that Joe will persevere and get to the next level and it could happen in 2013. I'd be surprised if it doesn't.
It's sad that so many internet writers have such a negative, cynical view of why Bruno Sammartino is going to be inducted into the WWE HOF this year at Madison Square Garden. I defend everyone's right to express their opinions especially on their own websites but at times it appears that some people merely write 'sizzle' to enhance their ad supported websites.
