Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Remembers Tom “DYNAMITE KID” Billington

One of the greatest of all time… He was a huge, huge influence on my career. As a smaller guy, that’s how you had to be during that time and when I was coming up. And everything you did had to make up for the lack of size, it had to be explosive. And there was nobody more explosive than the dynamite kid… My name was Lightning Kid, it was pretty much a copy off of Dynamite Kid …

Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Remembers Larry “The Axe” Hennig

A lot of people know that I was really close with Curt {Hennig} and traveling down the road with Curt I got to hear stories, I never met anyone that loved their father and looked up to their father more than Curt Hennig did. …And Larry in turn I never met anyone that was more proud of his son than he was of Curt. Every father is devastated when they lose a child but it was just times a hundred, times a hundred for Larry.

I put a tweet out the other day saying one day I’ll the story about Arnold Skaaland, Larry Hennig, Curt and I going over to Tijuana for a few hours, and you know people’s heads started to turn ‘maybe they went to the donkey show’ but no all it was is I went down there and bought a bunch of pills. {laughs} And when we came back across Larry and Arnold both, when I was going through the line, they went in the line furthest from me. They got as far away from me as possible on the way back through. {laughs} … I am honored to have known Larry Hennig and I am sending some love to the Hennig family….

Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Comments On Justin Credible

I had my own way of being down, my own version of hell, so my heart hurts for him and I love the guy. You guys know I really care a lot about him, we try not to give up on people cause when I was ready to fight, people were there for me, but he’s gotta do his part, you gotta do your part…. I just hate seeing this cause there is children involved, there’s this documentary being made. And a documentary is a documentary, it’s not scripted , you don’t get to write the finish of the documentary…You guys know I work with a rehab center and that guy was ready to go pick him up and he wouldn’t go, it’s so frustrating. But I kinda get it too…

Brody King Talks About He Wants To Still Work While Wrestling Full-Time

My work ethic is pretty good, I have a full-time job that I work Monday through Friday and I also train five days a week … I don’t think I can sacrifice the life that I have now to have like a starting rate at somewhere like WWE…that would be huge blow to me in my personal life. The stuff that I have coming up that I cannot confirm or deny, I am able to do my job part-time which is like the best part-time job in the world cause when you want work you can look for it and when you don’t, you don’t look for it. And I can do that and do my wrestling career full-time.

Brody King Talks About Wrestling Jungle Boy at PWG on 1/18/2019, In Jungle Boy’s PWG Debut

It’s almost like a full circle thing, almost a year from when I debuted you know another California kid is debuting, he has all the tools I feel you need to get over. He looks cool, does cool stuff, he’s got this mystique about him, he doesn’t say much but he doesn’t need to. His dad is Luke Perry so that’s kinda funny…

WWE News: SmackDown Live Audience Slightly Increases, Stays Ranked Third (12/11/18)



SmackDown Live
A look at the ratings for last night’s WWE SmackDown Live!

It hasn’t been good when it comes to the cable television ratings for WWE as of late, with both RAW and SmackDown Live seeing historically low numbers the past few weeks while at the same time staying steady in the Cable Top 150 Rankings (see how this week’s RAW held up).

After falling under two million viewers last week (see that here), last night’s SmackDown Live rating has now been revealed and that is still the case this week. However, the blue brand did go up slightly to a 1.977, up 1.49%. Here’s the last four weeks of viewership for SmackDown Live:

  • November 20th: 2.150
  • November 27th: 2.264
  • December 5th: 1.948
  • December 12th: 1.977

While RAW fell one spot in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic this week, the blue brand’s position remains the same at they come in at third for the second week in a row. Here was last night’s top five:

  1. Below Deck – Bravo – 0.83
  2. The Curse Of Oak Island – History – 0.73
  3. SmackDown Live – USA Network – 0.68
  4. 30 For 30: 42-1 – ESPN – 0.46
  5. Chrisley Knows Best – USA Network – 0.38

EA’s Take: Fresh match-up? Check. Big main event match? Check. Entertaining segment? Check. Build-up to a pay-per-view? Check. These are all things (outside of the PPV build-up) that people who point to ratings tell me they want in their wrestling programming. Does SmackDown Live not deliver on almost a weekly basis? Is it not a better program than RAW almost regularly? Then tell me why their ratings are also suffering and saying it’s the way WWE makes SmackDown Live perceived to the “second-rate” to RAW, that’s not going to cut it because they deliver what I’m being told are the reasons for the poor numbers every week. AND they do it without any competition like RAW faces. I’ve also been told this time of year is irrelevant as well, so spare me with that one. I’ll be waiting on Twitter, @E_Ames323.
