The Rack 06-28-12

The Rack is BACK! On the new, improved and streamlined edition of The Rack, Lindsey Ward & her producer Sir Rockin gave their opinions on all the big stories of the week in Wrestling in a new interactive format. After a show starting #Pipebomb (with some technical difficulties), we talked about the news of the week, including a WWE Diva quitting the company, JBL’s recent issues on his charity mountain tour, John Cena’s record breaking week (Make-A-Wish and his 10-year anniversary with WWE) and WWE giving towns the Jobber treatment. We also went in-depth with TNA Impact (subtitled “As AJ’s World Turns”) including the rebirth of the X Division, and the next step in the Dixie/AJ saga. We also had Brian J. Blottie from JAGRS join us to discuss the other soap opera that is AJ/Punk/Bryan/Kane and where that leads to at Money in the Bank, as well as theorizing about who will be the permanent GM will be after RAW’s 1000th episode, including a rather SCARY idea introduced by Sir Rockin . Check it all out on this week’s edition of The Rack.

Just Another God Damn Rasslin’ Show 06-27-12 Austin Aries Interview

As irreverent as the Katie Vick storyline and just as logical, it’s Just Another God Damn Rasslin Show. Hosts Jed Shaffer and Brian J. Blottie lead the cheap wood paneling of Mathew Sforcina and Scott Barry in discussing whether or not people like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Austin Aries have helped to break down the “indy guy image” to the modern mainstream wrestling fan, how to get the “smark” fan in the crowd to actually care about the wrestler in the ring, the free-fall of WWE’s stock prices and “what if” NASDAQ de-listed the WWE and their stock, John Cena and his historic 10-year dominance over the WWE (take THAT Hulk Hogan), a history of underutilized performers in wrestling and endangered status of the Jobber role. All of these moments of brilliance and blundering, and so much more, are brought to you by Eyeblack.com.
In this week’s “Shoot Back” segment, we had Jed Shaffer versus Mathew Sforcina in the semi-finals, debating who is the most underutilized performer, either past or present. Don’t forget to vote at the JAGRS Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WTRJAGRS) and let your voice be heard and move one of these “deserving” contestants to the finals!
The panel was also joined by a special guest interview, from TNA Impact Wrestling’s current X Division Champion and participant in the Infinity Pro’s Grand Tournament, Austin Aries. In a nearly 30 minute interview, he talked about his upcoming title match against Bobby Roode at Destination X, which wrestlers he had enjoyed working with, the evolution of his gimmick throughout the years, if there was an “indy” stigma, what he thinks the next evolution of the business is, his views on TNA doing live programs this summer and a host of other topics.
