Jordan Fox Blog: “The Sly One” & Dish Network are teaming up

Published

Disclaimer – Sometimes you might wonder what the point of the stories are… I’ll be honest, sometimes there isn’t going to be any meaning to what I’m blogging. I just simply want to share these really cool moments I get to experience. I get to experience these wonderful moments because I work in “The Business.” I work in wrestling, that might not mean much to a non fan, but to wrestling fans, being a full time wrestling employee, like I am, is the Holy Grail.
The wrestling business is my full time job, my “shoot” job & this blog details the fun I experience in our wacky world of wrestling… ENJOY!

I found out last night that my home promotion, Heroes of Wrestling, is gonna be on TV!!! WE are gonna be on TV. Heroes of Wrestling will be on TV & “The Sly One” will be the color commentator, how sweet it is!

The owner of Heroes of Wrestling, William Rigdon, explained through Facebook Live that through his partnership with Young Ideas, a Dish Network provider, HOW will be on one of the new soon to be created television channels. There is no exact word on if it will be available nationally right away or if it will start off as more of a regional channel first BUT he said that it will be available nationally either immediately or soon enough.

How freaking cool, maaaaaaan.

If you listen to the show or you follow my blog then you know that I am an opiate addict & an alcoholic & I’ve been clean & sober for 8 months now. When I got sober, the best I could of ever hoped for was a life that I wouldn’t be dreaming of pain pills or liquor but I got so much more than I deserved! I got the opportunity to not only podcast about wrestling, not only write about wrestling BUT to work full time in wrestling. I get to work in a position that I could make a difference.

What wrestling fan wouldn’t want to work IN wrestling? I remind myself of that every single day, multiple times a day, so that I never take it for granted.

I don’t ever want to be the guy in this business that doesn’t get excited when good news like this comes down. I want to forever be the guy that enjoys what he does & so far I feel like I am accomplishing that goal.

I’ve seen what being negative all the time gets you. I’ve seen what you get when you do negative things & I’ve seen what you get when you just don’t give a fuck about what you are doing. I’ll never go back to being that person.

I have a ton of fun in wrestling, I’m never doing something in the wrestling business that I don’t have fun doing. BUT, with that said, I take wrestling very serious. I want to be the best at what I do & I want to be a part of the best wrestling promotion, tv show, live event, whatever it is, I want it to be the best.

I take wrestling seriously so that when opportunities like this come around, I’m chosen to be a part of them.

Thank you guys & gals for checking out today’s blog entry! I love getting to share my wrestling experiences with everyone. Every time I turn around it’s like my career is taking another giant leap forward & I’m loving every second of it!

Greg DeMarco’s Three Stars Of The Night: WWE Raw (5/27/19)

Dolph, Brock, and an amazing in-ring performance!

Published

on

WWE Raw Dolph Ziggler

WWE Raw hit the airwaves for a holiday edition, and Box Office Brock is officially Boom Box Brock. Who stood out to Greg DeMarco?

WWE Raw was live on Memorial Day, and the show provided some memorable moments. Here’s what I think are the most memorable performances of the night.

The Third Star for WWE Raw: Boom Box Brock Lesnar

So Brock Lesnar didn’t know that he has a year to cash in Money In The Bank? Of course he didn’t! Brock was dancing, smiling, and having the time of his life. But if he wanted to, he could still kill you. His interactions tonight were fabulous, especially the moment when he realized he had a year to cash in the contract. Brock rarely speaks or makes decisions, but when he does it’s so carries to much impact. Well done!

The Second Star: Dolph Ziggler

I know there is some confusion around Dolph’s character. He’s technically still a Raw superstar (as listed on WWE.com), and he came back out of nowhere. But his delivery has been spectacular, and I am interested to see what he does in the ring at Super ShowDown. Will he change his in-ring style to match his persona? Will he stick around after the PPV?

The First Star for WWE Raw: Ricochet and Cesaro

You owe it to yourself to watch this match. They killed it, and busted out some stuff you don’t normally see. I don’t care about 50/50 booking or any other internet complaint. Go. Watch. This. Match.

In hockey, a game’s “Three Stars Of The Night” represent the top three performers of the night. For more clarification, I defer to this Pittsburgh Gazette explanation:

“The tradition dates to the 1936-37 season, when Imperial Oil became the principal sponsor of Hockey Night in Canada radio broadcasts and was seeking a way to promote one of its products, Three Star gasoline. The idea of doing so by selecting the top three performers in a particular game purportedly came from a Canadian advertising agency.

Many clubs do recognize the player with the most three-star selections with an award or trophy, usually in conjunction with a corporate sponsorship, at the end of the season (or sometimes, each month). All six Canadian franchises, for example, have an affiliation with a well-known brewery.

The NHL keeps track of its own Three Stars Of The Night selections, but that is done on a league-wide basis. The league employs a system that awards 30 points to a first star, 20 to a second star and 10 to a third – a running total can be found on the league’s website – but it does not present an award based on them.”

In hockey tradition, the first star represents the best of the three, but all three are considered to be receiving a high honor.

Greg DeMarco’s Three Stars Of The Night: AEW Double Or Nothing (5/25/19)

“Cody Rhodes can now take his place among the greatest in-ring storytellers of all time, a seat right next to Triple H himself.”

Published

on

AEW Double Or Nothing Kenny Omega

ALL Elite Wrestling made its debut with AEW Double Or Nothing. Who stood out from the talented crowd?

AEW Double Or Nothing is history, and it was quite the history making event. From the stellar matches, to the surprise debut of Jon Moxley (the former Dean Ambrose), the show delivered in a million different ways. It’s nearly impossible to pick three standout performances from a night like this, but I am the man for the task!

The Third Star for AEW Double Or Nothing: SCU

AEW Double Or Nothing SCU

There will only ever be one first PPV match for All Elite Wrestling, and it will always belong to SCU. Yes, Strong Hearts were also involved, and yes, Al Linda Man is an unsung hero of this match, but Christopher Daniels (one of the true greatest of all time), Frankie Kazarian (one of the greatest in-ring workhorses of all time), and Scorpio Sky (one of the most underrated wrestlers in the entire world, of all time), delivered a performance that is worth remembering as the first PPV match ever for AEW. This match in general hit on all cylinders, and the talent deserves a nod for their performance.

The Second Star: Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega wanted to give the fans a main event they deserved, and he did just that with Chris Jericho. It wasn’t as spot-tastic as the tag team match that preceded it (and that’s a good thing), but the story involved and Jericho working a new style that suits his age (and conditioning) meant that Omega needed to nearly kill himself to deliver the match he wanted everyone to see. In the end he put Jericho over, but is obviously on a collision course with Jon Moxley–potentially at ALL OUT. But on this night, Kenny Omega put the AEW brand on his shoulders and carried it into the stratosphere.

Honorable Mention: Jon Moxley

He needed to give everyone a memorable moment to end the show, and he did just that.

The First Star for AEW Double Or Nothing: Cody Rhodes and Dustin Rhodes

This match is what pro wrestling is all about. The amazing story told in the ring was sold by two true brothers, and in the end it was Cody who stood tall. That’s not enough to give one man the nod over the other, as this was obviously a team–no–a family effort. Dustin took the lead for most of the match, and you can tell both wanted to put on a performance that would make Dusty Rhodes proud. There was an old school moment when DDP carried Brandi Rhodes backstage kicking and screaming, but that doesn’t take away from what this was. It wasn’t old school, it was pro wrestling. Cody Rhodes can now take his place among the greatest in-ring storytellers of all time, a seat right next to Triple H himself.
