Hey folks, slow news day, hence the late post. I was hoping to get more interesting news pieces to add to the post today. Oh well. Can’t win em all. So, Space Monkey Mafia members, lets do this.
Major Name Returning – There’s been doubt whether or not Finn Balor would be ready in time for WrestleMania. Well Space Monkey Mafia members folks, get ready for the return of the Demon King. Balor is set to return this weekend at a pair of house shows, and will evidently be on the same show as Triple H in both Buffalo, New York and Windsor, Ontario. I’ve been told that if Balor’s return goes well, he could very well be in line for a spot a multi-man match for WrestleMania. I’ve also heard that his return could be saved for Mania as well. There’s even a rumor that Balor could come back and go after Samoa Joe. So we’ll see.
Funny Bully Ray/Shane Story – Bully Ray recently told a funny story about Shane McMahon and a car ride. Funny’s not the right word, but we don’t have much news today…..so….yeah….
Shane McMahon was on the road with me, Tommy Dreamer, and Spike Dudley and it’s about 3 o’clock in the morning, and we’re driving, and Shane just looks over at me, he goes ‘Let’s call Pop.’ I’m like ‘Shane, that’s not a good idea,’ ‘No, no, let’s call Pop!’ I’m like ‘He’s probably sleeping,’ and he goes ‘He never sleeps!’ I was like ‘We don’t want to wake up your mother.’ He’s like ‘Nah, nah she’s in Vegas with Stephanie for the Bachelorette party,” and before I could get out another excuse, he had already called his Dad.
So, Spike, is in the back, drunk, high, who knows. Shane goes ‘Hey wait, Dad, say hello to Spike.’ Spike thinks we’re prankin’ him, so, Spike goes, ‘Ey, Vinnie Mac, you got any kind buds?’ and Vince goes, ‘Hello, Spike.’ Spike threw the phone up against the windshield, it shattered, and we just kept on drivin’. So, the fact that we woke up billionaire Vince McMahon at three in the morning is pretty funny.
ROH Card Update – Bully Ray is pairing up with The Briscoes in his first match with the company, and they’ll face off with War Machine and Davey Boy Smith Jr. It’s being rumored that Davey is with the company for now due to the NJPW/ROH pairing. This match will happen at this Friday’s 15th anniversary show. The Hardy’s will also be on the show, defending the ROH Tag Team titles against The Young Bucks and NJPW’s Roppongi Vice.
Quick(est) Hitters: Matt Hardy claims to still have TNA Tag titles (which makes him an unprofessional dick…just saying). Hardy also continues to tweet at The Club. Backlash will be in May and will be a SmackDown event.
