I guess it worked out eventually. Good for them.
Will add it and check it out.
Now, guys, you gotta watch Hoodslam, it's too damn cool. I watched "F the fans 3: 80's for the ladies, and Fanarchy Rules. Great shows.
First episode was hosted by the Dark Sheik, the second one was hosted by the Ghost of Ric Flair and El Hijo de Rasta Mysterio.
First match was Wonder Girl Vs Super Red Rhino. Rhino's gimmick is that he's a robot being controled via an RC controller by this psycho in a Rob Zombie inspired mask. Think Devil's rejects.
Interesting match, not the most technical. There sure has been a lot of inter-gender matches lately. You see a lot of the basic ones, where the girl shows a lot of spirit and the guy plays the butt of the joke.
But lately I've seen some girls get their teeth kicked in. And they often give as good as they get, which I like. Think this is a good direction for the business. Metro Pro, ICW, Hoodslam, Ultra Championship Wrestling, and probably a few other promotions I've forgotten. A lot of inter-gender matches.
Then they had this dance off with Sexy Chino, Ryu, (Going under the name Matt Travolta now. A disco gimmick.) Shelly Martinez as Wonder Woman ...
Man, Shelly Martinez, damn...
Chuppacabra Vs Virgil Flynn was a legit cruiserweight showdown though. I'm talking, German Suplexes, Helicopter DDT's, Backdrop Powerbombs, reverse hurricannrannas and Mexican Destroyers.
Flynn did this one move like a reverse suicide dive. He ran from the crowd UNTO THE ring apron to hit Chup with a calf kick. Crazy.
Live commentary is as good as always, gotta find out these guy's names.
They ended this episode with a woman stripping down to pasties and bathing blood. No idea why.
Episode two had a 1980's theme, and it opened with a hoola hoop performer doing cool hoola hoop troops to the Flash dance theme. In a four or five way dance this girl dressed up as Mario grabbed a gold star and became invincible for a few seconds. What more could you want? Hoodslam is awesome.
Sorry if this all sounds like a herion addicts nightmare but it might be.
