Juice Robinson Talks About Jim Ross Getting Hurt During the G1 Special In San Francisco

I thought it was squashed after the show. Obviously, it wasn’t our intention to hurt JR {Jim Ross}. I think he knew that because why would we want to take the attention off the match and nobody wants to hurt anybody especially a 70-year-old guy… We apologized because it’s a just bummer that it happened.  We’re in the wrong at the end of the day… I thought the guardrails were gonna be locked, I went out there earlier in the day cause I knew we were gonna be hitting the fences pretty hard so I wanted to make sure they were interlocked, the guys on the floor at 4pm told me they were going to be so I thought it would be okay…

Juice Robinson on Why WWE Is Cool In His Book

Everybody always wants to talk about WWE which is okay. I didn’t want it to be a ,‘Oh Fuck you Canyon {Ceman}. I’m a star and I always was.’ I wanted it to be like, ‘Hey, I left and I remember those damn words and I am doing my damndest to try and do it.’ Cause I’m not mad at WWE. Man, everything I know about wrestling, the reason I am where I am now has a lot to do with those four years I was in WWE. If I wouldn’t have failed in WWE I wouldn’t be where I am. Me failing in WWE has way less to do with WWE. It has to do with me. I was young. I was twenty-two/twenty-three I was learning how to work. WWE is all cool in my book.

Juice Robinson On How Albert aka Giant Bernard Got Him His Spot In NJPW

That was all Giant Bernard, Prince Albert, Baldo. {Coach Albert in NXT} He became my friend down there before he even became a coach because he was coming down to do Florida house shows and like little matches against Adam Rose. Then he became a coach but we were already friends. When he became a coach I would tell him that I was frustrated with the whole process and where I was in NXT. He said ‘well if you ever quit let me try and get you a look in New Japan.’ And then when I finally did say, ‘okay enough is enough.’ That was WrestleMania 31 and luckily they were inducting Tatsumi Fujinami into the Hall Of Fame so the New Japan President and Tiger Hituri and higher up office guys were at Axxess and they saw me while I was wrestling. All Bernard said was, ‘Hey you should take this kid to Japan. He’s a good kid and he just quit here. He loves wrestling and he’s in it for the right reasons’ and that was that.

Juice Robinson On Hiromu Takahashi’s Injury

When you hear broken neck people think that {Paralyzed} but that’s not with every broken neck but hopefully his broken neck is just you know time off. Even though that still sucks but that beats the alternative. After seeing it, this is probably the best case scenario cause that looked like it could’ve been the last bump he ever took.

Juice Robinson Talks About The Differences Between Training in the WWE Performance Center Versus The NJPW Dojo

The Dojo was more bumping- you have to remember that there was a lot of guys that are really just starting out to even take like backdrops and hip tosses. When I was at the Performance Center, I was in one of the higher classes where obviously we already knew that stuff… In the Dojo for me I was just going through the drills, just the basic drills, stuff you can do in your sleep but you get a workout out of it. The Performance Center it turned more into a mental thing… you know a lot tape study, a lot of studying psychology, applying the finer things of the business I guess you would say and then the Dojo just kinda got back to the basics…

Juice Robinson On How Independent Wrestlers Inspired Him To Leave WWE

I went to FCW with very little experience and I always kinda rubbed to the guys that were you know the Seth Rollins’, the Dean Ambrose’s, the Claudio’s cause those guys were the guys I watched on the independents in my areas but I never became that before I somehow landed in FCW. But they had gone through all that stuff… I’d hear all their stories about all of them going around the world and then those people turned into the Finn Balor’s and the Kevin Steen’s and the El Generico’s, they all came in…they became my best boys. They would just tell me all the stories…they were so great right away. They were obviously put way ahead of me and I started being like, ‘Damn it, I should have experienced all that. Why didn’t I?’ And then you know you’re 25 and it’s not working out so I was like ‘if I’m gonna go try and learn all that, become like these guys, I better do it pretty quick,’ and they kinda gave me the ‘yeah dude that’s a good way to look at things.’ I think looking at it that way, there was no way I could fail cause I wanted to be good just because I wanted to be good.

Published

While NXT is on the air right now on the WWE Network, the brand is simultaneously holding its next set of television tapings at Full Sail University that will run up to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III on August 18th. Tonight’s episode has been previewing next week’s big NXT Championship match as Tommaso Ciampa challenges Aleister Black.

Ciampa has had the NXT Title in his crosshairs since defeating Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II in a Street Fight. ‘The Blackheart’ has looked to put Gargano behind him and played mind games with the current champion leading up to next week’s contest, however the match was filmed tonight.

Tommaso Ciampa has gone on to defeat Black, becoming the new NXT Champion. According to MrJacobCohen on Twitter, who has been a solid source for spoilers, the referee went down in the match which led to Johnny Gargano making his way out after Ciampa. However, ‘The Blackheart’ was able to thwart off the distraction and Aleister Black, picking up the pinfall to win the title:

WWE News: Titus O’Neil Speaks Out On Hulk Hogan’s Return, Reports He Stormed Out

Published

on

The news of Hulk Hogan’s reinstatement into the WWE Hall Of Fame this past Sunday prior to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view has remained a hot topic not only among the fans, but also some of the WWE Superstars as well. After WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry offered his thoughts to TMZ Sports this week (find that here), today The New Day addressed their feelings on the situation with a post on Twitter (read that here).

Another Superstar who has been a topic of discussion with rumors swirling regarding how he reacted to the locker room’s meeting with Hogan (find out more about that here) has been Titus O’Neil. A number of false reports surfaced this week claiming Titus stormed out of the PPG Paints Arena in frustration with Hogan’s return and now Titus has issued his own statement on Hulk’s reinstatement to the Hall Of Fame, as well as the rumors surrounding his reaction:

“To my gracious fans and the WWE Universe. 

The reports and rumors concerning my boycotting “Extreme Rules” in Pittsburgh is false and inaccurate. I was not scheduled to attend or be a participant in the “Extreme Rules” match/production and was otherwise not booked for the show.

The talent present in Pittsburgh, which I was a part of, was asked to attend a mandatory meeting in which Mr. Terry Bollea addressed everyone and informed the same that he would be reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. At no point during, after or otherwise did I make any scene concerning Mr. Bollea’s communication to the talent. In addition, let it be known that I did not refuse to shake Mr. Bollea’s hand; we did not have any type of one-on-one interaction whatsoever that would or did necessitate any exchange between us individually. 

As to the reinstatement of Mr. Bollea, I can only communicate that I am a proponent of second and even third chances for individuals that show true remorse, acknowledgment of wrongdoing, fulfill their punishment, if applicable, and otherwise put forth sincere efforts to correct the issues. 

Unfortunately, I must echo the sentiment and dissatisfaction expressed by many of my fellow contemporaries concerning Mr. Bollea’s apology and its lack of true contrition, remorse and a desire to change. Mr. Bollea’s apology “that he didn’t know he was being recorded” is not remorse for the hateful and violent utterances he made which reprise language that has caused violence against blacks and minorities for centuries.

I stand firm in my position that Mr. Bollea is entitled to reinstatement; he was and is a role model, hero and icon to countless people. I hope that Mr. Bollea’s missteps in communicating to the WWE talent in Pittsburgh are not repeated to his fans and I expect that he shall pursue an agenda that clearly communicates to all third parties that his language was inappropriate, wrong and should not be tolerated in a civilized and inclusive society.

As the father of two young black men, I have spent their entire life and the majority of my adult life with a singular focus; being a role model for my children and young black boys and girls. I take tremendous pride in my charity work and the community outreach programs that I have fostered via the platform I have been given. I teach my sons love and tolerance for everybody, but I also teach them to operate in truth and respect.

I hope this clears up any confusion. I, like New Day, will continue to use my platform to positively affect, entertain, embrace, celebrate and love people from all backgrounds both inside and outside of the WWE Universe.

Sincerely,

Thaddeus Bullard aka Titus O’Neil”
