Sid Vicious On Prime Time With Sean Mooney, Talks WrestleMania VIII & More

Published

on

On the latest edition of former WWE announcer Sean Mooney’s podcast, Prime Time With Sean Mooney, former WWE and WCW Champion Sid Vicious was the special guest and had some very interesting comments regarding his run with the then-WWF back in 1991-92, including his main event match at WrestleMania VIII against ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan.

According to Sid, he was not even aware of his first WrestleMania match (which you can also listen to in the clip above):

“You know Sean—and this is not an exaggeration—I don’t even remember my first WrestleMania. I didn’t realize it was WrestleMania and I’m not kidding you. I didn’t look at the booking sheet, I didn’t care who I was working with; I didn’t care. It was a business to me. I didn’t care if I won or lost, I just wanted to get paid. After my first WrestleMania, someone said to me ‘you know you’re main eventing WrestleMania?’ And I said, ‘No? Was I?’ I remember the Hoosier Dome, but I didn’t realize that was WrestleMania. I do remember doing the interviews for it, and having that Southern accent—I guess I was saying Wrestling Mania or saying it the wrong way—but there was a big sign that said ‘Tell Sid to just say ‘Mania’. At that point, Vince was already upset with me because I had already given my notice to quit. The reason was is because in that situation and in that company, I was in the wrong situation at the wrong time.”

Sid also addressed Hulk Hogan’s infamous comeback during matches, comparing it to The Three Stooges:

“This is the thing with that, Sean, is that particular era, that month of year of the business…Sean, you know this business…Hogan was already on the downhill skids. He wasn’t getting cheered. You know that ‘Three Stooges’ comeback wasn’t working anymore. You know that was his comeback, right? He copied that from Curly on the Three Stooges. Are you not aware of that? He presented it to me like that. I’ll never forget it; I thought I have to have a heel match, and goes, ‘No brother, this is going to be easy.’ He said, ‘You just beat me up a little bit and all of a sudden I’ll just do the shake and slap my face a couple times, like Curly does. You throw a punch, I’ll block it, you hit me, I’ll hit you. We’ll do that a couple times.’ And that’s how easy it was. It didn’t make for a good match, but it worked for him. When you’re doing that kind of match after that long of a time, people are going to shit on it, right They’re going to get tired of it—business was I wasn’t any better than Hogan—he’d had his run and we needed someone new.”

WWE News: Liv Morgan’s Injury Now Confirmed By WWE

Published

on

If you didn’t catch last night’s edition of Monday Night RAW from Denver, Colorado, The Riott Squad was in 6-Woman Tag Team action against the trio of Natalya and The Bella Twins.

During one moment in the match, Brie was delivering her husband’s trademark Yes Kicks to Liv Morgan and misfired on a couple of shots, striking Liv in the head with two consecutive blows. Morgan was visibly wobbly immediately after, getting tagged out and then only reappearing for one more spot in the match where The Riott Squad was hit with a triple suplex.

While it was widely believed that Liv likely suffered a concussion, it had yet to be confirmed although we did learn she was undergoing testing to see if that was in fact the case (read about that here). Today, WWE has now confirmed that Morgan does have a concussion with the following statement to PWInsider:

“Liv Morgan has a concussion and is going through the proper protocol under WWE’s comprehensive wellness program.”

It has also been noted today that Liv is having trouble remembering what happened during last night’s match. Additionally, it’s being said that although she was clearly injured, Morgan essentially forced her way back into the match briefly to take the triple suplex spot. At this time it’s not known how long she will be out of action.

WWE News: RAW Rating Takes A Big Drop, Rises In Top 5 (9/24/18)

Published

on

It has been nothing but dipping ratings for WWE’s Monday Night RAW ever since the post-SummerSlam episode on August 20th. With the NFL season in full swing, would the red brand have any shot at turning it around this week?

The numbers are in for last night’s episode and their downward trend continues with a 2.349, a 12% decrease over last week’s edition that had a 2.672. This is officially the lowest rated edition of RAW in the show’s history, beating out the July 9th episode a couple of months back. Here’s a look at the last four weeks of RAW ratings:

  • September 3rd: 2.872
  • September 10th: 2.740
  • September 17th: 2.672
  • September 24th: 2.349

While RAW’s rating took a big drop this week, their Cable Top 150 Ranking in the 18-49 demographic unusually went back up to the fourth spot after ranking fifth last week:

  1. NFL/Steelers vs. Buccaneers – ESPN – 4.43
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.62
  3. SportsCenter (12 AM Hour) – ESPN – 1.50
  4. Monday Night RAW (8PM Hour) – USA Network – 0.84
  5. Love & Hip Hop Hollywood – VH1 – 0.83

EA’s Take: While I’m generally tooting the horn of “Don’t Panic” lately when it comes to RAW’s ratings, there’s not much good going on here. It’s a bit of a deceiving positive that the red brand was able to move up a slot in the Cable Top 150. Last week, they came in fifth with a 0.96 share of the 18-49 demographic, so along with a big drop in the ratings, a big decrease here as well. It’s going to continue getting worse before it gets better, I feel at least. This is football season baby and any time there’s a big game like this week, RAW has no chance.

*Spoilers* Update On Independent Star Injured At Last Week’s NXT TV Tapings

Published

on

Last Thursday, WWE’s NXT was back at Full Sail University for its latest set of television tapings to air on the WWE Network.

Among the action, Shayna Baszler went one-on-one with independent star and the girlfriend of The Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole, Britt Baker. According to initial reports, Baker may have been injured during the match, however she continued to compete and even was attacked after the bell by Baszler. This led many to believe the injury in question was just part of an angle, but it now appears like that is not the case.

It has now been revealed that Baker suffered a dislocated shoulder, however the speculation is that there is not a major injury in play that would require surgery. In what would seem to back that talk up, Britt took to Twitter and remarked that she will be out of action for a few weeks. Adam Cole would also comment:
