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.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/19/19)

Start your Tuesday off with commentary on DX in the Hall Of Fame, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!



Jason shuffles into Tuesday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on DX, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!

Why Becky Lynch Won The Royal Rumble

Many fans have been questioning why Becky Lynch won the Royal Rumble if the goal was to have Charlotte inserted in to storyline with Ronda Rousey. The current storyline between the three would have made more sense had Charlotte won. Dave Meltzer stated on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon was insistent that Becky Lynch win the Royal Rumble.

Are You Ready?

It was announced earlier today that the first members of the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2019 will be none other than D-Generation X. Xpac, Shawn Michaels, HHH, The New Age Outlaws and Chyna will all be a part of the induction.

Big Plans For Lacey Evans?

Since debuting on the main roster and participating in the Royal Rumble, fans have wondered what creatives plans are for Lacey Evans. According to Dave Meltzer and the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Lacey Evans is in for a gigantic push, and there are many backstage officials that are very high on her.

Lio Rush Has Heat ?

Sunday nights finish to the Intercontinental title match between Finn Balor and Bobby Lashley has people scratching their heads. Perhaps there is reason to the breakup of Lashley and his hype man Lio Rush. According to PWI Insider Elite, Rush has heat backstage.

“It appears as if Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin.”

“There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people — including other workers the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News

DX is getting a well deserved Hall Of Fame Induction, but I have mixed feelings on it. This feels like an easy way out for WWE to have Chyna included into the HOF, rather than have her inducted as an individual. Also, I am probably in the minority on this, but there are others more deserving to be in before DX. I personally would have went with the NWO, but I am a mark for the NWO, so that’s just me.

Lacey Evans has the look, and her mic skills aren’t bad, however, she is green as grass. It will be interesting to see what type of program they come up with for her. A clash with Alexa Bliss perhaps?

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/18/19)

Start your Monday off with comments on news regarding Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch and more!



ALL IN Chris Jericho

Jason shuffles into Monday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on Chris Jericho/IMPACT, AEW Ticket Sales, Becky Lynch, and more!

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.
