Hello everyone and welcome to today’s edition of The News!! This is the day where I bring you all of the wrestling news you will ever need for your Saturday night. Why would you ever want to go through many websites, searching through various articles when all the news you need is here, on the best website, the top website, the number one website and quite frankly, the only website you will ever need, NerdCorp. Enough nonsense, let’s just get to the news shall we?!?!
Ronnie Garvin Speaks – The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast recently interviewed former NWA world champion Ronnie Garvin on a multitude of subjects. One of them is how he doesn’t respect the lifestyle of “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. The topic came up when he discussed his philosophy of how much money he can save and make while wrestling and then the topic of wasting your money came up, then Ric came into the conversation. This is what he had to say…
“…The whole thing and the object was money. How much money do I make a year, how much money do I put towards my retirement and I was planning everything out in my life and a lot of people didn’t do that. I didn’t go to the bars drinking and I wasn’t a partier and I didn’t have all the women in the world like Ric Flair, I didn’t ride in the limos and I told people if you see me in a limo that I am driving it. I’ll be up in the front with the guy in the little hat driving the limo. Both of my feet are on the ground and I never dreamed it and the only dreams I had were to be successful. I am a regular guy and I put my pants on one leg at a time. I always thank the fans because without them we wouldn’t have anything.”
He also mentioned how different he is than Ric…
“I have never seen him since 1987. I don’t like being in that kind of world. It is bullshit. But to each his own. It is his life and you live it the way you want to. But I don’t respect it because to me you are a goof. When you blow your money away and you wind up down the road broke and if you look in sports and entertainment you see folks that had everything and the last part of their life is just misery.
“Why go through that at the end of your life and go through that financially. I’ve heard all kinds of stories that I don’t know are true or not but I wish him the best and he’s never done anything to me but I respect people that are down to earth, people that are accomplishing things without having to brag about all of their feats in the world, how many women they slept with, how many drinks I can have in one night and driving the Mercedes and taking limos. I got in the ring with him, I never sat a table and had a meal with him or met him in a bar or had a long conversation or even travel with him. I never did that.”
Tomoaki Honma Update – Tomoaki Honma is back on his feet after suffering a serious spinal injury that left him temporarily paralyzed last month. You can see a photo of Honma back on his feet after he suffered a cervical vertebrae injury back in March during a multi-man tag team match, taking a Hangman’s DDT from Jado. He was taken from the ring on a stretcher and was unable to move his lower extremities. He underwent surgery to repair some of the damage and began physical therapy. On behalf of everyone here at NerdCorp, we wish Honma the best in his recovery.
Eric Young Speaks – The E&C Podcast of Awesomeness recently interviewed NXT Superstar Eric Young. He spoke about a multitude of subjects including his raspy voice as a result of papillomas, even stating that it’s the same thing Brian Pillman had. He has had surgery #18 since 2004. He states that the procedure only lasts 40 minutes and you’re “out for a day”, however, prepping and to put him to sleep takes about two hours. He says that papillomas is pretty much warts that grow on your vocal chords, you get them out but then they come back, hence why it is his 18th surgery.
He also spoke about his meetings with Triple H, here is what he had to say…
“I had this conversation with Hunter when I was first talking to him. I said, ‘I’m not the biggest guy. I’m not really great at any one thing. But I kind of have this proof of being a guy that can do all of it and do all of it at a high level.’” Young said, “I said, ‘anything that you want me to do, I can do it and I can probably do it better than you think I can.”
He also mentioned his age at 37 and feeling like he is 30 in the ring, he states how he had an 8 year vacation where he would show up, fall down, pretending to be scared by his pyro, lock up with a ring announcer, do a cartwheel and that was it. Of course this is relating to his time in TNA.
