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.

EC3 Destroys TNA In One ‘Claire Lynch’ Tweet



EC3 Claire Lynch AJ Styles TNA

Twitter is an amazing place, although sometimes it can be quite off-putting. That was not the case when EC3 gave us a tweet about Dixie Carter–that was really more about TNA in general–that should never be forgotten.

Lars Sullivan tweeted that EC3 was the worst thing to ever come out of Dixie Carter (odd, since she’s his “aunt,” and not his “mother”), and EC3 provided a response that can never be topped.

Fans will remember Claire Lynch as the supposed mistress of AJ Styles, a storyline so bad it was quickly (but not quickly abandoned) after revealing Christopher Daniels put Claire up to the claim. This, of course, was after a failed pregnancy was included as part of the storyline.

Thankfully, the YouTube videos still exist…for now:

I wouldn’t expect those videos to go away anytime soon, since the descriptions were recently updated with details on subscribing to the Global Wrestling Network.

Claire Lynch was played by commercial actress Julia Reilly, who reportedly quit the company after being harassed online (shocker), and wasn’t heard from since. Her Twitter account lists her as a trade show presenter, but the last tweet was in 2015. She did post to Instagram this year, and (sadly, for her) someone commented about her TNA run back in February.

Thanks to Dixie Carter’s nephew, her wrestling fame will live on forever.

Sonoran Championship Wrestling BATTLE|LINES Results (9/21/18)



SCW Battle Lines

SCW (Sonoran Championship Wrestling) returned to The World Famous Nile Theater on Friday night, September 21, for BATTLE|LINES! Tensions were high all night, and the rowdy crowd in attendance were treated so some amazing action.

By the end of the night we had a new (but reluctant) tag team, fans begging for more EJ-Calder, one pissed off challenger, and the revelation of perhaps the strongest force ever to hit SCW…

Full results:

Navajo Warrior pinned Alex Salyers
Salyers reminded everyone of the reasons he asked for “the biggest, baddest, and most respected man in Arizona,” and then promptly punched him in the face. The legendary competitor proved too much in the end.

SBR & Cole Wright (with Travis Lee) beat Awesome Andy & Aguila
Two brand new teams in SCW brought the action early and never stopped, bringing the fans to their feet on multiple occasions. In the end, Travis sprayed Andy with Body Spray, leading his team to victory. After the match it was obvious that SBR & Cole had no clue what Travis was up to.

The Heat Seat with Pete The Heat and special guest Sergio Vega
Pete The Heat welcomed Sergio Vega, who explained that he was attacked at the border on his way to August’s Big Trouble In Little Mesa. He didn’t see the attacker, but did notice that Jay Garland was wearing a Sergio Vega shirt when he left the building with Thugnificent that night. The Hawaiian Lion entered the ring to remind Sergio to focus on their match later in the evening, and that the Arizona legend fully intended on ending the year-plus reign of the champion.

SOS (with June Jackson) pinned Morgan (with Adrenalyn) in a No Disqualification Match
June Jackson announced that she would not be participating in the match, but “supervising” as her best friend, SOS, battled Morgan instead. Morgan didn’t come alone, bringing back-up on the form of Adrenalyn! All four women battled throughout The Nile, but in the end a (legal) chairshot from SOS allowed her to score the pin after June blasted Adrenalyn with a tire iron.

EJ Sparks and Calder McColl battled to a time limit draw
In another first time ever encounter, EJ and Calder brought the fight in a big way, neither letting up for the duration of the match. Calder connected with an Air Raid Crash, but EJ kicked out of the pinfall attempt right before time expired. Calder was frustrated, but the two men embraced to end a match that fans are already asking to see again.

Toom E Guci addressed the crowd
SCW co-owner and general manager Toom E Guci announced that on October 19, we will celebrate two years of Sonoran Championship Wrestling  at Run The Gauntlet. Competitors will compete in the biggest Gauntlet ever, spanning the entire evening, and the winner will have the ability to make any match they choose. Toom revealed that the first match of Run The Gauntlet.

SCW Tag Team Champions Jay Garland & The MITH and Impulse Champion Thugnificent fought The Brothers Of Wrestling (Evan Daniels & R-Three) and LJ Ramos to a no-contest
Toom E Guci got the answers he was seeking when these six men jumped into action. LJ Ramos was (seemingly) injured during the match, and was rendered unable to continue and helped to the back. The 3-on-2 advantage proved to be too much for the BOW, and when all hope was lost LJ returned to the ring! Once LJ was tagged in, he stood face-to-face with The Man In The Hood, but turned around and attacked Evan Daniels! Garland, Thugnificent, MITH, and Ramos maintained a 4-on-2 advantage until EJ Sparks ran to confront the four men. Before EJ could do anything, June Jackson snuck in and hit EJ with a low blow, leading to a 5-on-1 attack on the fan favorite. Jay Garland took the mic and revealed that Genesys was reformed, much to the dismay of Toom E Guci.

SCW Heavyweight Champion Sergio Vega pinned The Hawaiian Lion to retain his championship
After defeating Ricky Mandel to earn this championship opportunity, The Hawaiian Lion took the fight to the champion, but there was no backing down for Sergio Vega. Lion connected with an Axe Bomber late in the match, but was slow to cover. Sergio kicked out, but Lion immediately latched onto a Coquina Clutch. Sergio got to the ropes multiple times, and referee Scott Johnson had to pull Lion off of Sergio. Lion protested, but that gave Sergio the opening he needed to score the victor. Lion snapped after the match, taking out his frustrations on the champion and refusing to release the Clutch. The Navajo Warrior hit the ring to finally break Lion from the hold, restraining him before he could do more damage to the champion, the official, and potentially his own career.

Sonoran Championship Wrestling returns to The Nile Theater on Friday, October 19, 2018 for Run The Gauntlet! Don’t miss this night of non-stop action as the SCW roster attempts to Run The Gauntlet from start to finish.
