Brock Lesnar became the first guy to ever hold the WWE Championship and the UFC Heavyweight Championship!
Lesnar showed the MMA world just how "fake" former pro wrestlers can be when he defeated UFC's golden boy, Randy "The Natural" Couture by ground & pound in round 2 of UFC 91 last night.
I want to personally wish Brock a congratulations and a thank you for shutting the pro wrestling haters up for good!

I downloaded the demo and tried it with my brother. When we finished the short demo, we were left in awe. The graphics, the gameplay and the story are phenomenal. The zombies are in 28 Weeks Later effect, they run at you super fast and they overwhelm you in sheer volume.
The game features 4 player co-op which is really cool.
The game ships late next week, you would be stupid not to rent it, or at least download the demo. You won't be sorry.

I bought the limited edition copy of the game yesterday and played it for 3 hours. My initial impression of the game so far is that it deserves the hype its been getting and a review of 9.6 from IGN might be right for once.
There is so much to do. The world has been destroyed by nuclear warfare and your character has been living in a bomb shelter his whole life not knowing the outside world is still alive. You begin creating your character and living and seeing the first 16 years of his life through cut scenes and dialog. Once the story takes it's course you end up escaping the shelter to find your missing father. This is where the game picks up and shines.
The overall tone to the game is like living out the movie "I Am Legend" where you search the barren waste lands and fight odd creatures for survival. The combat system is nice and innovative as well as the choice to play either in first or third person view.
I would strongly suggest buying or renting this game.

I have played a dozen Spider-Man games before in the past with Maximum Carnage being my all time favorite..... that is until now. I started playing the newest SM game called Web of Shadows this week and from the combat to the visuals to the story I can honestly say this game is top notch.
IGN.com gave it a 7 out of 10 which if you are a Marvel fan or a SM fanatic you can tell after a half of an hour of playing it yourself that a 7 is way under what it should be.
I currently have around 6-8 hours invested in it and the story is captivating me like no other SM game has in the past. It revolves around the standard cast of SM baddies with a twist.... after a few hours of playing the Symbiotes from Venom start infecting the city itself, including civilians and the major villians.
The good news is that you have some help in the form of people like Black Cat, Luke Cage and Wolverine (among others) that can be summoned at any time to help you fight during a tough spot. These characters add to the storyline in the sense that they are needed in NYC because of the horrible state the city is in.
The controls are easy to use but hard to master. You can switch between The black suit and the classic red at any time. Switching costumes unlocks 2 different fighting styles so the game always feels fresh.
My final verdict is that this game is easily a 9 out of 10 so far. I am sure it will get harder and possibly better after more time is invested. So if you are a SM fan, this is a MUST buy!

Forget about RDLee Equaling Ratings for one second because....
Sarah Palin was a big hit on "Saturday Night Live." NBC scored its highest ratings for the late-night show in 14 years, in an estimate based on the nation's biggest media markets. Nothing has done better since skater Nancy Kerrigan visited after her Olympics drama with Tonya Harding in 1994.
Palin played along as Tina Fey gave another impersonation of the Alaska governor.
Nielsen Media Research won't have a complete count of Saturday's audience until later in the week. It will likely be around 14 million people — and 17 million for the first half hour, when the opening skit happened.

After what might have been its most successful night as a mixed martial arts promoter, ProElite finds itself on the defensive. For the past several days, the Los Angeles-based company has been fending off allegations of fight fixing.
Shortly after stopping Kimbo Slice in 14 seconds in Sunrise, Fla., on Saturday, last-minute replacement Seth Petruzelli began granting interviews. But it was the one he conducted Monday with an Orlando, Fla.-based radio station that has put ProElite under the microscope.
"The promoters kind of hinted to me and they gave me the money to stand and trade with him," Petruzelli said on "The Monsters in Orlando" show. "They didn't want me to take him down, let's just put it that way. It was worth my while to try to stand up and punch with him."
Petruzelli has since claimed his comment was "misconstrued." But the damage was too great to simply go away quietly. His words implied that ProElite attempted to influence the fight, causing the issue to mushroom.
After repeated calls from ESPN.com, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation -- which oversees the State Boxing Commission -- said Thursday that it has opened a preliminary investigation into the matter.
"While the Department of Business and Professional Regulation doesn't have any reason to believe there was a problem with the Slice-Petruzelli fight, given the interest in it, the Department has begun a preliminary investigation to thoroughly review the circumstances of the fight," said Jennifer Meale, Communications Director for the DBPR.
Jeremy Lappen, head of fight operations for ProElite subsidiary EliteXC, isn't concerned about the investigation. He insists there was no attempt to influence the fight in any way.
"We had a main event that fell out three hours before the fight was scheduled to start," Lappen told ESPN.com. "We had to scramble. And rather than call off the event, which is what most promoters would do, we put together something for the fans -- and tried to put on the best fight possible.
"We offered Seth Petruzelli a knockout bonus, a submission bonus and "fight of the night" bonus. If we were trying to influence the fight, why would we do that?
"We were not trying to protect Kimbo. He had been training to fight a guy in Shamrock who has a better ground game than Seth. If we were trying to protect Kimbo we would have sent him home. We put him in a dangerous fight."
ProElite's problems began Saturday afternoon when Slice's original opponent, Ken Shamrock, suffered a cut over his left eye. The Florida State Boxing Commission examined the injury and deemed it too severe to allow Shamrock to compete.
In an effort to keep Slice on the card, ProElite then made an offer to Petruzelli.
The Orlando, Fla., resident wasted little time accepting. Petruzelli, who was scheduled to face Aaron Rosa in a light heavyweight undercard bout, seized his opportunity by handing Slice his first professional loss.
In his excitement, Petruzelli began talking to anyone who would listen. But Petruzelli isn't used to being the focus of attention, so when his local radio station called, he opened up.
If the DBPR finds Petruzelli's statements during that radio interview to be true, it might cause irreparable harm to ProElite. It might also damage the credibility of mixed martial arts.
With so much at stake, Lappen stepped in to clear things up.
"We didn't try to influence the fight, and Seth said we didn't try to influence the fight. So there isn't a story," Lappen said. "If we are being hurt image-wise then it is extremely unfortunate because nothing happened."
Lappen is disappointed that so much attention has been placed on Petruzelli's statement. He points out that the card attracted more than 4 million viewers.
"I wish there was more focus paid on the fact that we had an amazing night," Lappen said. "There are a lot of great things that came out of Saturday night, the least of which is the ratings.
"That to me is a huge story. We went against other major sports -- a very big college football game, a playoff game in baseball and we did a better rating than they did. We were No. 1 in the key demographics [males 18 to 34 years old]."
But UFC president Dana White says a large television rating won't matter if it is found that ProElite attempted to influence the Slice-Petruzelli fight. White welcomes the DBPR's decision.
He believes any hint that a promoter influenced how a bout was fought will harm the integrity of mixed martial arts. White added that his organization could also feel the sting.
"The Mandalay Bay and Venetian [casinos] took bets on that fight," White told ESPN.com. "If you're a fan of mixed martial arts and you sit down and do all the stats and you're like 'man, if this thing goes to the ground, Seth Petruzelli can win this fight, I'm gonna bet on Seth Petruzelli.'
"Then you don't know the promoters are paying the guy and saying 'don't go to the ground?' That's criminal. If that was in Las Vegas and the Nevada Athletic Commission had put that fight on, the FBI would be investigating them right now.
"This is how it hurts [UFC]; it hurts our mainstream growth. The people who aren't hardcore fans … ask me 'Oh, you have that Kimbo Slice guy.' And I have to say no, 'I don't have Kimbo Slice.' I would never bring Kimbo Slice into my organization."

After nearly a year of trash talking and waiting...
The Ken Shamrock/Kimbo Slice match fell through at the last minute due to Shamrock being accidentally headbutted during a training session earlier in the day which caused a laceration that required 6 stiches. So the Elite XC officials and medical staff decided to disqualify Shamrock from the contest.
However I am hopeful that they will at least set up a rematch in the near future but as of right now I am very unhappy and rather pissed off at the due to the sudden turn of events.
At least we might get to see Gina Carano "Crush" her opponent....

Please welcome the man, the myth, the legend.....CVD!
RDLee: Hey CVD, thanks so much for joining me today!
CVD: Hey, no problem.... Anything for the man who equals ratings. LOL!
RDLee: We go way back, meeting on Xbox live years ago, what are you playing these days?
CVD: Smackdown vs Raw 2008, Mercenaries 2, Rockband 2, Ninja Gaiden 2(see a trend starting here?) and of course... Madden 09.
RDLee: Are you looking forward to any future releases?
CVD: Resident Evil 5 is obviously my most anticipated. I'm also looking forward to the new WWE SVR 2009, Gears of War 2, and Dead Space.
RDLee: Who will win the console war in your opinion and why?
CVD: Probably Microsoft, for now. But I don't really care about that shit! I own all three systems and I think each one brings a different experience than the other. I use my Ps3 to play original titles like Hevaenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake's fortune, and Metal Gear Solid 4. I use the Xbox 360 to talk with my friends in California, and beat the crap out of Katz Money any chance I can get. While the Wii is used for those days where you have ADD and can't sit still for more than two minutes.
RDLee: We have a mutual friend in 20th Century Fox producer and co-creater of the comic book Booster Gold, Mr. Jeff Katz. Do you think that he stands a chance in our upcoming Smackdown v.s. Raw 2009 triple threat matches with me and you involved?
CVD: I don't think you realize who your talking about. When Katz Money heads down to the squared circle.... it's on! The man doesn't have mercy for anyone, or anything. He's... Cold Blooded!
RDLee: Some people may not be aware of the fact that you recently finished a movie called "MENACE" could you give us a brief synopsis on what the film is all about?
CVD: The best way to describe MENACE is.... a slasher movie with some brains.
RDLee: Do you make a apperance in the film as well?
CVD: Yes. A brief cameo.
RDLee: What can someone do to get ahold of a copy of "MENACE" on dvd?
CVD: For now, you'll have to wait a little bit longer. You'll be the first to know when it happens.
RDLee: You recently put out a request for anyone to give their ideas for a kill scene in the next movie "MENACE 2", I submitted mine and you decided to use it. Is it too late for anyone else to throw their ideas your way? If not how can they contact you to submit?
CVD: You were a special case. So, I'll probably go with my own original kills for the rest, but never know....
RDLee: Now we usually have different tastes when it comes to movies,but allow me to ask you what you your top 5 must see movies of the 2008 year are?
CVD: Hellboy 2: The golden Army, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, and Wanted.
RDLee: You are a recent adopter of blu-ray. What are your thoughts on it now that you experienced it's greatness?
CVD: I love it. Watching Road Warrior in high-def, was awesome!
RDLee: Are you still following wrestling? if so, what's going on in your head regarding the business overall right now?
CVD: They don't understand what they're doing anymore. You got TNA acting like a miniWCW, and the WWE has no competition, so they have no reason to break the boundaries like they did in the late nineties. Hasn't any of these federations realized that a good stable brings ratings? TNA was at their best(in my opinion) when Team Canada and Jarrett had an alliance. The WWE gets their biggest ratings when they had popular stables too. Do you want me to bring up the NWO while I'm at it?
RDLee: Did you warm up to the HBK/Bret Hart Wrestlemania 12 Iron Man match yet?????
CVD: Never. Worst Wrestlemania ever!!!!!! That whole card sucked. You could tell something was going on with their roster just by watching that crapfest. Savio Vega vs Austin? That's a Wrestlemania match?
RDLee: So what IS your favorite match of all time then?
CVD: Easy. Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat vs "Macho Man" Randy Savage at Wrestlemnia III. The match that stole the thunder from the slam heard round the world. Hogan must have been pissed.
RDLee: Awesome, so we will wrap this up now, is there anything else you would like to say to all the CVD-Maniacs out there?
CVD: F*ck you, f*ck you, your cool... f*ck you I'm out!
RDLee: Thanks for joining me and I wish you the best of luck in all your future endevours.
CVD: Same to you RDLee

When I first started this blog, I reached out and asked people to write something entertaining to read so I can share it with all of you. Some people responded, including "The Magnificant" Mike Rickard from World Wrestling Insanity.com
Below is his list of the top 5 WORST wrestling video games of all time. So enjoy and be sure to pre-order his book "Wrestling's Greatest Moments" which can be found on the right side of this blog via the Amazon link I provided. Thanks!
LE CRÈME DE LA CRAP: A LOOK AT THE WORST WRESTLING GAMES OF ALL TIME:
Anyone can throw together a list of the best wrestling video games of all time. With No Mercy and the SmackDown! series you’ve already got a top five list. No, it takes a real masochist to survey the slew of garbage out there and present the worst of the worst. When it comes to wrestling video games, they’re a lot like the sport itself. There’s good and bad to be found everywhere and just because it’s from a major promotion doesn’t guarantee it’s going to be good.
Quite Frankly, it’s easy to talk about the good wrestling games- But I’d like to talk about the bad ones! Let’s look at what I refer to as the cream of the crap.
5. WWF In Your House- take everything you like about WWF Wrestlemania the Arcade Game and throw it out the window. Personally, I always hated Wrestlemania the Arcade Game. The idea of mixing Mortal Kombat and the WWF was cool in concept but poor in execution (just like WWE Creative). This one though stripped away any of the redeeming qualities that made Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game a hit with some fans. I’d like to say it doesn’t get any worse than this but the list is just beginning.
4. WCW Backstage Assault- who needs a wrestling ring for a wrestling game? Not the folks at Electronic Arts who designed this one to feature nothing but backstage brawling. Mix in some awful graphics with the forgettable game engine from WCW Mayhem and your frustration is complete.
3. WWF Wrestlemania (NES): This video game epitomized WWF merchandising at the time-poorly made products designed to make a quick buck. The graphics were so crude that I still think this game was ported from the Atari 2600. I remember dropping fifty bucks on this baby and rushing home to play it. Imagine my delight when I had the game finished in less than two hours. The first but definitely not the last wrestling game that had you wishing you never bought it.
2. TNA Impact!: For a game that was three years in the making, Midway really shit the bed with this one. It’s a sixty dollar glorified demo version of what could (and quite frankly should) have been a great game. The game has a clever submission and counter system but the rest of its combat system is inexcusably flawed. Where do we begin? Brain damaged AI? Repetitive announcing from Mike Tenay and Don West (oh wait, in that respect the game captures TNA perfectly)? A shocking lack of specialty matches? A bankrupt create-a-wrestler system. Even better is that Midway reportedly had thousands of moves captured for the game only for Midway to cut most of them due to “time constraints”. Not happy with this one? Don’t worry because Midway reportedly will be releasing lots of downloadable content including new matches and wrestlers. How generous of them! You pay $59.95 for a glorified demo and then get to drop some more bucks on what should have come with the game in the first place. Any redeeming qualities that Impact! has are totally wiped out by this unacceptable release.
1. Showdown: Legends of Wrestling: Like TNA Impact!, this one could have been a classic. With over sixty true legends from the 80’s and 90’s, announcing from Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, Larry Zbyszko, and Tony Schiavone, and classic arenas like Maple Leaf Gardens, Madison Square Garden, and the Omni, you’d think this would be on everyone’s list of all-time greats. Unfortunately, the game featured incredibly stupid AI, more bugs than the latest version of Windows, and a control system that simulated the horrible effects of cerebral palsy. This one could have been so good and yet it ended up being so bad that you can’t help but wonder if it was the victim of industrial sabotage. Avoid this one like the clap (and you’ll have more fun getting the clap than you will playing this game).

Now, for the first time ever, Zah from World Wrestling Insanity breaks his silence.....
Well actually that's not true at all.... Because you can hear him every week on the "World According To Zah" at ClubWWI.com. And you can read his "Shaking My Head" column every Friday at worldwrestlinginsanity.com
He is known as the host with the most, the man of the hour, too sweet to be sour, blah, blah, blah.... Here it is uncut and uncensored just the way you like it.....
RDLee: Welcome to RDLee Free Insanity, ZAH. Great to finally have you on!
ZAH: RDLee Free Insanity? I don't even know what the hell that is. Where's James Guttman? You lied to me. What the f*ck?
RDLee: Ummm...so let me start off by asking... What in the blue hell is this "Airchair" thing you are always siting in???
ZAH: Well, I record my audios while sitting in a chair. I'm doing an audio so I'm technically "on the air" when you play it back. It's an "air chair". What...too complicated?
RDLee: I still don't get it..... Anywho, why do you believe in your heart that Aaron Wood sucks?
ZAH: Why would anybody believe in their heart that he doesn't?
RDLee: Because he is Scottish maybe? Ok....next question What the hell is a "Fritz Stephey"?
ZAH: It's a chocolate-flavored pancake found only in Holland.
RDLee: Now that you have decided to keep Pillar to Post with a new format added, how are you getting all the big names to sign on for it? Blackmail? Money? Sex? All 3?
ZAH: Well, Sweeney turned down my offer for sex and he wouldn't give me any money...so you figure it out.
RDLee: I don't want to.....So where did the name "ZAH" come from?
ZAH: I dunno...my parents gave it to me. I think it's Norwegian, which is weird because my family isn't from Norwegia.
RDLee: If you were stuck on a deserted island for the rest of your life and HAD to pick one person to live with out of the following..... Aaron Wood, "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn or the The Great Khali.... who would you pick and why?
ZAH: Probably Khali. I mean, I could kill him and then live off of his big-ass meaty body for months. I guess I could do the same with Wood, but I have a feeling he'd be all gamy. No thanks. And Gunn? Please...I wouldn't touch him with Aaron Wood's mouth.
RDLee: I hope not.... So if RDLee Equals Ratings, what does ZAH Equal?
ZAH: Web-clicks and audio downloads. Belee-dat sucka!
RDLee: I do, I do....We all know about your man crush on CM Punk, anyone else you eyeballing that we should know about?
ZAH: None that you should know about, no.
RDLee: So are you implying that it could be me? Sorry I am taken.... Anyways, which sucks worse, Aaron Wood or TNA's booking?
ZAH: Wow...first hardball question of the interview. As much as I'd love to say Mr. Suck, after watching "No Surrender" it's not really that close. TNA's booking truly sucks harder. Although I must admit there are times where Wood is so bad he sucks AND blows at the same time...but I still have to go with TNA booking.
RDLee: Ha Ha, you said "hardball"..... So James Guttman and Mike Rickard both have books coming out this fall, when is the "World According To ZAH" book gonna be happen?
ZAH: No word of lie, I've been asked that before, actually. I honestly don't think there's enough interest out there in an entire book of nothing but what I think about the business. Of course, if ECW Press came a-knockin', I surely wouldn't say 'no'.
RDLee: If you could watch the matches of one person for the rest of your life, who would you choose?
ZAH: I couldn't do it. I don't have the attention span to watch more than one dvd of the same person's matches at any given time. Any more than that and I'd go more insane than I already am. Now if it were PORN we're talkin' about...
RDLee: Perv....nevermind that.... So, at the 33 minute mark of your next audio could you stop for a second and just simply say this phrase 3 times.... "Head Cheese" and then move on without explanation?
ZAH: No...but I can do it near the end of my "No Surrender" audio.
RDLee: Did you realize that when you begin your audio that sometimes you steal Mike Rickard's "Hey Now" gimmick? Are you sorry about it or should he consider legal action?
ZAH: It's technically something I borrowed from Howard Stern, not Rickard. And I've got the better radio voice so I could easily argue that Rickard steals it from me. And it's not a gimmick...it's a catchphrase. And it's not copyrighted. And it's not even Howard Stern's, it's from the Gary Shandling Show. And Aaron Wood sucks.
RDLee: Yeah, I agree on that last one ten fold. Well that wraps things up, any final words to all the ZAH marks out there?
ZAH: Well, I totally appreciate you clicking the links that bring you to my column, my audio, my MySpace, and my online blog each and every week. Because if it weren't for you, I'd just be sitting in my room every night naked in the dark talking to myself and writing down words for nobody. Not very healthy.
RDLee: Yeah I have nothing else to say except thanks for joining me (hopefully fully clothed) and I wish you nothing but luck in all your future endeavors!
ZAH: Dude...when you're this awesome, you create your own luck.

Ooh, You Tasty Little Things blog has the recipe on how to make your own bacon chocolate chip cookies with maple cinnamon glaze. How to de-clog your arteries guide not included.
Sure, that was a good salad, but it would have been so much better with bacon. That was a delicious baked potato.. I wish it had some bacon on it. You know what was missing from breakfast this morning?- bacon. I think we’ve come up with so many foods which bacon can enhance, that we really were wondering what foods it wouldn’t. [...]
Then we started talking about what bacon has successfully been added to, and the thought of the maple bacon bar donut at Voodoo donut back home, and Vosages bacon chocolate bar made me wonder..
Could I make a cookie with bacon? How about a chocolate chip cookie?
My husband cringed. He asked me to make a small batch, just in case. He’s a big fan of standard chocolate chip cookies, so to see a whole batch go to waste if the bacon addition didn’t work, I think it might have made him cry.
But I had to do it. The bacon and chocolate chip cookie had to be made.
So now we need more members that are interested in playing the Drums (We already have one part time drummer in Ficker) or doing the Vocals (don't be shy!) So message me on Xbox Live if you are interested. Gamertag is RDLee. Thanks guys!

Like most people I have been waiting 2 years for this game and had high hopes going into when I finally put the game in my Xbox 360. Now after several hours of gameplay and the full completion of the storymode I am happy to report that the game is great!
The gameplay is fun and feels fresh. The graphics are beautiful. The storymode was very well done and original. And the challenge of the last boss in Jeff Jarrett was insane. All in all I would not only recommend wrestling fans to pick up this game, but I would go as far as to say this game will be direct competition to the Smackdown v.s. Raw series in the upcoming years.
If anyone has the 360 version and wants to lose a match then add "RDLee" to your friends list. I will be more than happy to deliver a beat down or two. Thanks for reading. Keep on Keeping On!

He is the man behind the Dillon Enterprises, the man with the all powerful right hand, and the commish of the PWF. You may know his as TJ Dillon, but in reality he is known as THE BOSS!
To check out more about The Boss TJ Dillon & The PWF go to: http://pwftn.co.nr/
RDLee: Welcome to the coolest place in town today TJ Dillon!
TJ: Your welcome for having me, but I will not continue unless you call me the Boss!
RDLee: Uh.....alrighty then...that leads me in to my first question, Why do they call you The Boss?
Boss: Well it could be because I have a power fetish, or because I'm a big Springsteen fan, or maybe its because I run a multi-billion dollar corporation, Dillon Enterprises. Actually I guess it's all 3.
RDLee: Is it true that you have more money than the Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase?
Boss: Dibiase? Oh you mean that nice guy who washes my windows on my leer jet? Uh, yeah.
RDLee: You are currently working with the PWF is that correct?
Boss: Yes. I am The Commissioner of the PWF, the best independant wrestling in East Tennessee. I see you are quite a fan.
RDLee: What are your thoughts on the current roster?
Boss: We have a plethora of young upcoming talent like The Xcception Josh Crawford, Johnny Knieval, Mad Dog Daniel Mulligan and so many others. But its our veterans like The Modern Day Superstar, Man Mountain Terrance Tyler, The Death Riders, and Mike Blade that give our company stability. Plus Bobby Eaton gives us the credibility that has made us a huge draw since day one. We have an amazing group of talent, right down to our ring announcer Munkay. And everyone, and believe me, I mean everyone has stepped into that ring on more than one occasion. You really fight for your position.
RDLee: If you could put a bounty on any member of the roster, who would it be and why?
Boss: Hammer of course. I've been feuding with him for 2 years now. I want that troll out of my hair for good. Of course I wouldn't mind getting ahold of that play by play announcer James Buchanan either. He owes me money.
RDLee: If you could bring in one TNA/WWE star to join Dillon Enterprises who would you choose?
Boss: You would want me to say someone of whom I have admired his work in TNA for many years, wouldn't you? But no, The Boss always has a trick up his sleeve. You have to to stay on top. I would choose Randy Orton. He has everything I need in a Champion. Plus he also hails from St. Louis and that's where Dillon Enterprises is.
RDLee: You recently had a match scheduled that was 2 years in the making against Hammer, why did that match not take place?
Boss: Well we didn't have the match because I issued the best of 7 challenge, I would say Hammer is lucky he didn't get hiss ass kicked again!
RDLee: What do you think about the new PWF champion Daniel Mulligan?
Boss: He cheated. And he smells. Period.
RDLee: What does the future hold for you in the PWF?
Boss: For now, who knows its really just a side venture anyways. A tax write-off, if you will. I will make it billions till it rivals those "other" feds and then leave it to my right hand man, Main Event Money Jay Shaft.
RDLee: Does the Boss TJ Dillon "Bleed Purple"?
Boss: Yes. Actually thats where we got that slogan.
RDLee: Well its time to call it a day, I would like to thank you and wish you the best in your future endevours. Any final words for all the marks out there?
Boss: Just one small notice to anyone out there who would dare challenge me: Don't Cross The Boss!!
If you're a serious Spider-Man fan, you've probably been wondering when the producers were gonna dust off Dylan Baker and FINALLY let him become the super-villain we've all been waiting for. Yes, newbies, the one-armed college professor who appears in all three Spider-Man films (for about 90 seconds at a time) is the guy who eventually gets turned into man-sized Lizard with a true hatred for Spider-Man. I'm assuming Sam Raimi wedged the character into the first two films, hoping to deliver a pay-off in Spider-Man 3, but I guess that flick was just too damn cluttered with other baddies.
According to one source, not only will Baker finally become The Lizard in Spider-Man 4, but we'll also have to contend with a certain villain known as Carnage. Spider-Man 4 would have to go a little bit "darker" than its predecessors to accurately capture the Carnage story, which focuses on a serial killer called Cletus Kasady who comes into contact with some of Eddie Brock's "symbiote" goo while they're both stuck in prison. (Connors, on the other hand, becomes Lizard after injecting himself with reptilian DNA in an effort to re-grow his missing arm.)
FreezeDriedMovies.com claims that these scoops come from the same source that gave them the Venom scoop a while back, so hopefully both villain reports are accurate. Apparently there's also talk of getting Black Cat into the Spider-Man 4 mix, because if a record-breaking opening weekend tells you one thing, it's that you can never have too many villains in your Spidey sequels. (Perhaps we'll get some of the goofier villains -- Rhino, Vulture, Electro, Kraven the Hunter -- in Spider-Man 5.)

After a two decade absence, the Ghostbusters finally appear ready to return to the silver screen. Columbia Pictures has tapped the Emmy-nominated writing team of Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (producers of The Office) to pen the screenplay.
Variety reports that the new script will be "for a film designed to bring back together the original cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson." (There were rumors that Ghostbusters 3 would revolve around a younger GBs instead.)

Welcome to another edition of RDLee Free Insanity. This one is a treat, After being called out on his audio for not having a guest of his star power, I decided to turn the tables and give the always controversial Canadian Bulldog his chance to lash out at whatever and whoever he wants. This interview is filled with trademark humor and educated writing, and thats all just from my side. So without further adu, Put the paper down because here it is:
RDLee: Thanks for joining me today Bulldog, I will try not to pretend like I don't know who you are...
Bulldog: Well, it's an honor just to be here on the Bryan and Vinny Show, Mr. Alvarez, and so...... wait. What the fuck is this???? RDLee Free Insanity? That doesn't even make SENSE gramatically!
RDLee: Yes it does....So let me start off by asking if YOU can pretend to know who I am for this interview?
Bulldog: I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it. Anyways, my only parameters for this interview: no Aaron Wood questions, PLEASE.
RDLee: Too bad....thats the theme. So are you proud of yourself for creating the "Artie Lee" gimmick just to get a cheap pop and rip me off and attempt to get more ratings on your audios?
Bulldog: What in the blue hell are you talking about? I thought you WERE Artie! Why do you think I'd have enough free time to even do something like that?
RDLee: Maybe because you are an "RDLee mark?" Nevermind that though, The biggest question on peoples mind these days is where the does this immense hatred for Aaron Wood comes from?
Bulldog: Here's the thing: Aaron Wood sucks. He adds absolutely nothing to this website (by *this website*, I mean WWI, but surely he adds nothing to your blog, either). I think my message has come across loud and clear. Captain Suck should just go back to the 'Ness and appear in doctored newspaper photographs. That's all he's good for.
RDLee: Now that the lines have been drawn why do you think that Fritz Stephey has joined Aaron's "Team Suck"?
Bulldog: I don't know, and I have no clue who or what "Fritz Stephey" is. Sounds like a 1940's cartoonist ("A Fritz Stephey Car-Tune: Harebrained Hi-Jinx"). But if this kid had any sense, he'd know that there's virtually no upside to teaming with Lame-Ass Wood.
RDLee: What are your thoughts on Zah coming to your defense and joining your side against the evils of "Team Suck"?
Bulldog: ZAH is someone I consider to be the MVP of World Wrestling Insanity, so anything he says is credible and flattering as hell. Mind you, though, who else would he side with in a feud involving Aaron Wood? Kind of a no-brainer there. Still, we Canucks stick up for each other. Canadians are like that - we'll fiercely loyal, will refuse to do jobs in our home country, and even speak our own secret language (French). You mess with the land of Molson and Maple Syrup? Not a wise move, Potsy.
RDLee: I came up with new names for your 2 stables.... You and Zah are the "Canadian BullZah's" and A.W. and Fritz are the "Fritzy Woods"... Do you think I should a named genius of the year?
Bulldog: I didn't realize there were stables. Though "The Fritzy Woods" does describe those two douchebags to a T. You are a genius RDLee, and you do equal ratings. Whatever that means.
RDLee: You know what it means... any who, Do you think James Guttman will ever have you and Aaron on a 3:10 audio at the same time just to watch the fireworks show?
Bulldog: I'm sure James would love to do that -- hell, any time I'm on the 3:10, the ratings go through the ROOF -- the only problem is, Captain Suck would never agree to it. He talks a big game, a zillion miles away from JG and I, but when it comes down to it, buddy is just plain scared. And you can quote me on that! Oh, looks like you ARE quoting me on that.
RDLee: Do you think my idea of you doing a full 30 minute audio discussing ONLY the suckage of Aaron Wood would be a success or "suckcess" so to speak?
Bulldog: It would be the biggest waste of audio ever!
RDLee: Sum up....
RDLee: Um ok.... Sum up Aaron Wood in one word.... and you can't use the word "Suck"
Bulldog:"Sucks". See I didn't use the word "Suck" there at all. I pluralized it... so, perfectly acceptable substitute.
RDLee: So do you think in your heart of hearts that you and Aaron could ever patch things up and meet somewhere to share a ice cream sundae?
Bulldog: There's a joke in there that's WAY too obvious (involving the words "Aaron" "share" and "ice cream sundae"), but I'm far too high-brow to bring it up.
RDLee: Ok enough about Mr. Suck. Why is the "Infamous Suzanne" still considered "Infamous"? Shouldn't she be "Famous" now that she has been revealed as your object of desire?
Bulldog: Anyone who hooks up with me is obviously bad-ass, hardcore or any of those wrestling analogies you want to use. So that alone makes Bulldog's main squeeze "Infamous".
RDLee: And your co-host of many shows, the Big Rybowski, is called "Big" because of what? Is he overweight? Is he tall? Or is it his huge...... feet???
Bulldog: I believe he was named after Big Bird, actually. If you've ever listened to Complete and Utter Bulldog (and I urge all you stupid marks... I mean, dedicated readers.... to do so on Club WWI), you know that the program begins and ends with The Big Rybowski. He's just THAT impressive.
RDLee: If DH Smith challenged you to a wrestling match to determine who would be crowned the undisputed Canadian Bulldog, how would it play out? And be honest!
Bulldog: Who? That little douchebag who stole my name? Well, let me ask you this: I've been Canadian Bulldog for more than five years and I'm only getting more recognition worldwide as time goes on. He was Canadian Bulldog for, what, four weeks on Sunday Night Heat before getting jobbed out to JBL or Raw? I think you already know who the more powerful "Canadian Bulldog" is here. Do a Google search with the words "Canadian Bulldog" in quotes -- I think you'll see who has far more greatest hits.
RDLee: If you HAD to do one of these two things what would it be.... Share a plate of spaghetti with Aaron Wood, Lady and the Tramp style or Take a 5 minute stinkface from Rikishi with him forgetting to wear the thong?
Bulldog: See, now you're just TRYING to get me to make the obvious joke (involving the words "Share" "Spagheti" "Stinkface" "Thong" "Aaron Wood" and "Sucks", Too easy, my friend!
RDLee: So we're friends now? Anyways, There is a rumor that you will be getting neutured live on your next audio to attempt to be new and original, any truth to that?
Bulldog: In the two-plus years I've been doing CAUB, I've done the show in a hot tub. I've talked TNA in the shower. I've brought you to some of the wildest, drunkest parties known to man or woman. I've been in New York City, Niagara Falls and Calgary. I've recorded myself sleeping. I've given away money live to callers on the air. I've almost been killed. And most recently, I took a leak while on the air. Compared to those things, getting neutered sounds tame.
RDLee: Do you have any pet peeves or problems with anyone else on the WWI message boards besides Mr. Suck?
Bulldog: None whatsoever. I love all the stupid marks equally, especially those who have joined the newly-christened "Canadian Bulldog Coalition".
RDLee: Ok, if you can get overyourself for a minute, it's time for us to wrap it up.... I want to wish you all the best in your future endevours and allow you to say one last thing to all the stupid little Bulldog "marks" out there....
Bulldog: Best in future endeavors? If wrestling has taught me anything, that means I'm about to get FIRED!!! Geez, what a way to find out JG is canning my ass! Anyways, I appreciate everyone who reads my columns and listens to my audios. Thanks -- and I truly mean this -- for the compliment!!!
Also, Aaron Wood sucks.
Sunday, August 31, 2008
He was a simple man, he loved wrestling with all his heart, and back then he still thought it was real like most others did during that era. His favorite was Hulk Hogan, I will never forget the times I would spend at his house.. He would make me some peanut butter toast with a little sugar on top and we would sit in his living room while Saturday Night's Main Event was on, He would yell and scream at the tv, which I could giggle about. He would always tell me how great Hogan was and how no one would ever beat him. I never fully understood until years later how much wrestling meant to him. He passed away in 1992, and a few years ago in 2005, my dad gave me a box that my Grandpa had left for me. It had all kinds of old figures, puzzles, magazines, ect... in it of old school WWF. And since I never grew out of it, It meant the world to me. Now that I am older and know alot of guys that work in the buisness, I am proud to say that it still means as much to me now than it did to me as a child. I will never "grow up" and pass the phase known as "wrestling fan". There are other stories I remember about my Grandpa, I will share them another time. The pic below is me in the early 90's wearing the hat he gave me before he died. Ironically it's a WWF hat and WCW Sting t-shirt.
As I sit here now, I am beyond happy to report that the love I have for wrestling will continue, not only in me, but also in my 4 year old daughter, Tori, who absolutely loves every second that it is on. It reminds me of when I was a kid, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. She struggles with Cerebal Palsy, among other things, but that doesn't stop her from showing her passion when wrestling is on. She kicks, hollars, punches, and laughes during the course of the matches. I honestly cannot tell you how much it means to me that she shares the same love and passion as I do for it. It adds another layer to our relationship, and guarentees I will always have someone to share it with.
In conclusion, if you call yourself a fan, you should take the time to sit and think about why, and make an effort to share your story with others. If you actually read all of this, I thank you. I hope you enjoyed it because I shared a piece of my heart with you. Again, Thanks for reading and...
Keep on Keeping On!

A special thanks to JT for telling it like it is in his first ever shoot interview EVER! They say "Controversy Creates Cash" so after this one is over, I'll be rich!
Read the full interview below...
RDLee: Hey JT, thanks for joining me today!
JT: Thanks for having me buddy, it's an honor to be here.
RDLee: How long have you been a member of the WWI.com message board?
JT: Since June 2007. I've been a reader since May 2006. For some reason I always thought that you had to pay to join the message board, so that's why it took me so long to join up.
RDLee: So in your case, you have seen many members come and go, Who has been your favorites and who are you glad is gone?
JT: Well other than RDLee, I have to say that my favorites have been those on the Impact thread Drowgoddess, JohnnyCraze, ThinkSoJoE, and Fritz Stephey. If it wasn't for them, would've given up on Impact long ago.
Who I'm glad to see gone, that one is easy, Johnny Rebel, though he does reappear from time to time with his idiotic remarks and undying love for WCW.
RDLee: Who's side are you on? The "Fritzey Woods" or "The Canadian BullZahs?"
JT: Canadian BullZahs since I'm a multi-time guest head shaker and they've both mentioned me in their audios, so I'm on their side. Plus I'm part Canadian so it helps too.
Aaron Wood sucks on levels I never even knew existed. Once you think he can't possibly suck any more, he tops himself. 2 hour 10 minute audio taking about RAW as he watches it just so he have the longest audio on Club WWI, I'd rather watch the movie Gigli than listen to that piece of crap.
Fritz is cool though.
RDLee: If Zah sits in a "Airchair" what do you sit in?
JT: A "Chairair"
RDLee: Is Mike Rickard really Magnificant? And if so, is he like the Wizard from Oz?
JT: Yes he is magnificant. With his through knowledege of Wrestling and the fact that he's the oldest one on the message board (I think), I would think of him more as Yoda than the Wizard of Oz.
RDLee: Is there any truth to the rumor that are "WWI's Original Redhead? How certain are you of this?
JT: Actually it's WWI's Resident Redhead. It's an hommage to Jimmy Wang Yang's "Smackdown's Resident Redneck" gimmick. However, since I am the only one with red hair willing to come out form behind the message board and show myself, then yes it is true that I'm WWI's Original Redhead.
RDLee: Do you think that JG should start paying you royalties from his book as well?
JT: Nah, just give me a free lifetime membership to Club WWI and I'll be happy.
RDLee: What is keeping you from joining the other "Newz" sites message boards and telling them all of our secrets?
JT: Wait, there are other sites besides WWI.com? I know wwe.com, tnawrestling.com and boredwrestlingfan.com, but I thought that's it. So if I don't know about them, they must suck and are not allowed to have the priviledge of having me post on their message boards.
RDLee: If you could pick one WWI member to step into the ring with Snitsky, who would it be and what's the outcome?
JT: NozeNuggets. Snitsky kills NozeNuggets in a typical Snitsky squash match, then after the 3 count, Snitsky rips Noze's head off and punts it into the crowd ridding us of NozeNuggets forever.
RDLee: If you were trapped on a deserted island, who would you choose to have with you? Mae Young, Aaron Wood, or Chris Benoit?
JT: Well since Aaron Wood and Mae Young have something going on between them, I wouldn't wan't to ruin Aaron's only chance to get any from a live woman, so I'll pick Chris Benoit. Plus Benoit's already dead, and I like the peacefulness in being alone.
RDLee: That wraps it up for us, thanks for joining me today and best of luck in all your future endevours.
JT: Before I go, I just want to give a shout out to Ayatollah Blassie, Sabuisgod, Green Teabagger, Keevel, bmartin, the people I play soccer with, all of my facebook and myspace friends, all of my stablemates in Death Dealer's Dirty Dozen, anyone else I forgot, and most of all RDLee for having on here because RDLee = Ratings.
I watched one of my favorite movies of all time again last night for the first time on Blu-Ray, "50 First Dates" starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. I think this movie is amazing! It's super funny, has a heartfelt story and a great cast. If you haven't seen this movie yet, this is a MUST SEE!

While I cannot confirm whether this pic is real or fake, it certainly looks legit and interesting to me. This comes on the heels of the strong rumor that sites like IGN & G4 posted regarding info on Microsoft releasing Halo 4 with the next generation Xbox system.
I am praying that this is gonna happen because the screenshot above looks freaking awesome! But what do YOU think? Leave a comment below and let me know!

A special thanks to Ryan McBain for submitting his interesting point of view regarding the PS3/Xbox 360 war. Make sure to check out his site @ RyanMcBain.com and sign up for the Board of Legend to discuss or debate his opinions which you are about to read below. Or simply leave a comment here and I will pass along your thoughts to him myself. Here is his article:
"I get a lot of crap from people for buying a PS3. They either call me a dumbass, or a Sony fanboy. I'm neither. I just like what both systems have to offer. The Xbox 360 has the best online period.Plus, right now their library of games are more impressive. The main reason why I bought a Playstation 3 (60 gig model) was because of the potential the machine has. When Home comes out, I really think we're going see some amazing things. Plus having Blu-ray is a big help. John Carmack of id Software has stated that the upcoming shooter Rage will need at least 2 discs to be played on the 360. Even with 2 discs, that wont be enough to contain all of the high-resolution textures (the 360 will use a different compression technology to fit everything on those discs) and the PS3 version will look superior as a result.
By 2009 I think the PS3 will surpass the 360. I could be wrong. But, if games like Heavy Rain, and DC Universe Online, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, and Socom deliver...watch out. Plus don't be surprised if Gears of War 3 ends on the PS3...you heard it here first :)
Speaking of Gears of War...
People always ask me what games I play online. I was never really a fan of shooting games, especially first person shooters. The only reason why I bought Halo 3 was because all my friends had the game and I didn't want to be left out. I saw Gears of War was third person, so I thought I would give it a try. I was hooked from the start.
GoW, is the only Xbox 360 game I play constantly. I most likely wouldn't own the 360 if it wasn't for this game. The funny thing is (at least to me) that I like the game for reasons it was not intended for. My favorite multiplayer mode is warzone. I really dig it because you can shoot your enemy until he is down and then have your way with him. And by have your way with him I mean tea bag him, nail him from behind, make him toss your salad, slap his ass, smoke tag him and then nail him from behin.. ect. The possibilities are endless. Yes, it's juvenile but it makes me laugh. It's a real treat to hear the guy who you raped yell at you at the end of the match. Apparently people don't like to be sodomized. Who knew?"

FINALLY Aaron Wood breaks his silence, in this special, exclusive shoot interview with RDLee. I ask him all the hard questions about his rivalry with Canadian Bulldog and Zah, about his alliance with Fritz Stephey, about JG paying him royalties and finally which WWI message board user he would most like to vanish! A special thanks goes out to Aaron Wood for agreeing to give me the exclusive first and only interview he has ever done! So go ahead and read the interview below...
RDLee: "Thank you for joining me today, let's get down to business shall we?"
AW: "OK then. How much for those oranges?"
RDLee: "Question number one, Do you really hail from Scotland or is it just a rumor?"
AW: "Of course. But here's the thing, is Scotland actually real? I mean, people think the Loch Ness Monster is real, but it's not...maybe the whole country is mythical as well???"
RDLee: "Is your god given birth name actually Aaron Bartholomew Wood II?"
AW: "Not quite. It's Aaron Barholomew Chareth Singeon Bartholomew Smith-Smythe-Smith Wood LOLOAQICI82QB4IP"
RDLee: "What are your thoughts on fellow WWI writer Canadian Bulldog?"
AW: "I think he could be a fine worker if the WWE actually put him on TV. There's no good in signing Davey Smith's son and not using him..."
RDLee: "When and how did this feud with Bulldog start? Is it jealousy over something?"
AW: "Well, the truth is that I discovered that he did some "adult" entertainment aimed at other people of a homosexual persuasion under the name Spanks Hardbody. He seems to have taken against for some reason. I mean, what he wants (or needs) to do to make money is absolutely his business and no-one else's."
RDLee: "Why do you think Zah jumped in and started to bash you as well?"
AW: "I would like to refer you to the previous answers and allow you to draw your own conclusions about "Pete Hutt"...
RDLee: "Do you have any tips on who Zah and/or Canadian Bulldog really are behind their gimmicks?
AW: "I've discovered more about those two than I ever needed to know..."
RDLee: "Why is it do you think that Bulldog and Zah continue to bully you and say you suck?"
AW: "I don't know. I mean, the only thing I truly suck at is figuring out how the tax system works. Those two...well..."
RDLee: "We have been hearing rumblings about a Aaron Wood/Fritz Stephey alliance, any truth to that?"
AW: "My people are talking to his people. I think he's kinda like the US in WW2. He doesn't really want to get involved, but if provoked, he could climb on board..."
RDLee: "If you ran into Bulldog or Zah on the streets, would they run away or try to be your best friend due to fear?"
AW: "If they ran into me on the street, they'd hit the pavement. I'm one wide and fat fucker...hard to shift..."
RDLee: "Do you feel that James Guttman should be paying you royalties from his upcoming book?"
AW: "You mean he's not?"
RDLee: "Do you consider yourself a role model for young children?"
AW: "I don't know about "Role model", but I'm certainly very easy to "roll". As I said earlier, I'm rather round."
RDLee: "If you could vanish any member from the WWI message boards for good, who would it be and why?"
AW: "I wish to leave this question unanswered due to the foul language that would be required to be used. Suffice to say, if they don't know who they are by now, then they'll stay utterly retarded and they should never have come back..."
RDLee: "What is next on your agenda, a possible jump from WWI to Wrestlezone or The Torch?"
AW: "No, but Rick Scaia of OO is after me, seeking an upgrade since Canadian Bulldog left."
RDLee: "Thank you so much for setting the record straight today, I wish you the best of luck in all your future endevours"
AW: "What? I'm fired????? You can't fire me! You don't have the power! You're name isn't RDGuttman!!!"

If you are a fan of wrestling like me, and like to enjoy a nice read with plenty of knowledgable insight and witty commentary then do youself a big favor and pre-order both of these books today!
The first one is written by the head of World Wrestling Insanity.com (The only good wrestling site I ever read) James Guttman, this is his second book after the previous one WWI: "The Decline and Fall of a Family Empire" captured the hearts of wrestling fans around the world. JG (as us cool kids call him) combines humor and honest opinions about the wackiness in pro wrestling. From personal experience I would say that you would be silly not to give his first and second book a try, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
The second book is his first. Mike Rickard is another columnist/audio host on WWI.com and is one of the FEW, TRUE wrestling historians out there. When it comes to his articles and/or audios you can't help but enjoy being educated by this man's knowledge and charming wit of pro wrestling. I will be picking this book up as well and I hope some of you take a chance and buy one as well. I promise you that you will be very pleased with either or both books pictured above.
I posted the links to the Amazon preorder pages for both books on the right of the blog. What are you waiting for? PRE-ORDER NOW!
The upcoming release of The Incredible Hulk is pure marketing genius and will be coming to Blu-ray in October with limited edition “Green-ray” packaging and BD-Live features, and will feature a limited edition 3-D lenticular cover.
Also promised on the upcoming release will be BD-Live connectivity, including a “My Chat” feature allow multiple users to watch the movie simultaneously, as well as possible additional web-enabled features to be announced at a later date.
October 21, 2008 is the street date for the Blu-ray, which is day-and-date with the standard DVD. Personally, I can’t wait!
I am beyond happy after reading about the newly announced PSP game "The Third Birthday" which is a sequel/spin-off of one of my favorite games growing up, Parasite Eve. It's being made in the same tone as FF7: Crisis Core, meaning that rather than being a direct sequel the game will feature Aya Brea in a different storyline.
This just became another great reason to own a PSP.
The pic above is currently the only screenshot available for the game which is expected to be out late next year. I can't wait!!!
