Sean Waltman Says He’s A Big Fan of Brody King and Shares His Thoughts On His Recent Signing with Ring of Honor

I am a big fan of Brody’s. My first experience was running into him at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood when I went over there and I was like ‘How Come you’re not doing more with this guy?’ He’s great in the ring, he’s a good size heavyweight, he’s a big enough guy to where he can go out there and get it done. He’s a similar size as Walter and that means he can go out there and get it done with anyone and still work with smaller guys. That’s a really good size to be. And he’s great, and he’s straight edge, he doesn’t get messed up. People that are straight edge they still have their own issues but at least you don’t have to worry about drugs and alcohol being one of them.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young Talks About Jake Hager aka Jack Swagger’s Reach After The Announcement of His Official MMA Debut in Bellator

I’ve been in the ring with him several times, he’s a horse and I say it all the time, he’s a horse. When you get hit by him you get rocked, not in a bad way but you get rocked. He’s got a long reach, his reach is long and I told him that to his face, I said I can’t wait to see you fight because you’re reach is so freaking long.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young Talks About Bret Hart Helping Him and How He Would Still Like To Be Involved with WWE

Well this past year it’s been a little bit over a year since I’ve been released. I’ve been doing a lot more speaking engagements and a little bit of wrestling. Bret {Hart} was a big help, kinda helping me get with a reputable promoters to work with so it was a very limited schedule….I am 35 I still have a lot left in the tank but if I can be more of an ambassador with the company with there Be A Star campaign I am okay with that because I want to be able to contribute because they are still my family. I was able to go backstage recently, hang out with some of the guys.

Fred Rosser aka Darren Young and His Mom Talk About Coming Out To Each Other

Fred Rosser’s Mom: I came out to my son, I guess I must have been 27/28 and I came out to him and he said ‘Well mom I don’t care as long as you’re happy I still love you’ and I said ‘Oh. Okay.’ I  walked into my room, shut the door and I thought ‘Damn, that was easy.’

Fred Rosser: My mom came out first, I was fearful as a kid.I didn’t come out to her until I was 28 because back in the 80s science wasn’t as strong as it is now that a same sex couple could have kids and no one wants to let their mom down. She was so supportive….

Flaming Pearl Oracles: Event Results and Schedules

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia. 



Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match? (3/22/19)

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?



Dana Warrior

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?

WWE Re-considering Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Match ?

As I discussed in yesterday’s shuffle, there has been a lot of backlash in regards to Baron Corbin being named Kurt Angle’s opponent for his retirement match at WrestleMania. Originally, it had been widely reported that there are no plans to change the matchup. However, that looks like it could possibly changes. The Twitter account @WrestleVotes (an account that is usually correct with wrestling rumors) Tweeted today that the match is being re-considered.

Jason’s Take

Not surprised by this one. As I said yesterday, I am not a fan of Angle, but he deserved better. If they do change it, will they go with John Cena ?

Jim Ross To AEW?

We know that Jim Ross is finishing up with the WWE this month, and has long been rumored to be a part of AEW. Today, Ross appeared on Outside The Lines, and confirmed he has had talks with AEW.

Jason’s Take

Ross jumping to AEW is probably a worse kept secret than Kenny Omega joining the company. Ross being a part of the AEW announce team would give the company a recognizable voice that many American fans will recognize. But, much like I asked yesterday, what does bringing in former WWE wrestlers, announcers, and WCW match types due to generate interest? Are we moving forward or reliving the past ?


Speaking of actual AEW roster additions, the company announced today in the latest edition of their YouTube series The Road To Double Or Nothing, that IMPACT knockout Allie will be joining the company.

Jason’s Take

Allie is a great addition to the AEW women’s division. From what little I watch of IMPACT, Allie has been more than entertaining.

Update On Dana Warrior’s Creative Role

If you have been following the Chairshot the past few weeks (and if you haven’t, why the hell not?) you have seen many of the writers, including myself, discuss Dana Warrior and her roll on the creative team. Earlier this week I discussed her recent promotion to a full time creative role. Dave Meltzer noted today that there recently was an important creative meeting that other creative team members were not a part of.

Jason’s Take

It’s a slow news day, and I like to posted five news items. So to be honest, I’m killing space with this one. In all seriousness though, great reporting by Dave Meltzer. That’s why you should be reading the Chairshot everyday. We try to weed out the BS.

Original WrestleMania Plans For Rey Mysterio

This week on SmackDown Live, it was confirmed that Rey Mysterio would be taking on Samoa Joe for the United States championship at WrestleMania. The Wrestling Observer noted that there were originally other plans for Mysterio. The original plan was for Andrade vs. Mysterio in a hair vs. mask match

Jason’s Take

Mysterio vs Andrade at WreslteMania would have been a very entertaining match.
