Report: King Booker Quits WWE
Date Added: September 09, 2007
Story By: Ryan Gray
Source - Wrestling Observer Newsletter

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, King Booker (Robert Huffman) has quit World Wrestling Entertainment. According to Meltzer, Huffman quit after being told that he was going to be suspended for 60 days because he was listed as a client of Signature Pharmacy. Huffman was suspended 60 instead of 30 days due to a previous Wellness Policy violation.

WWE is still trying to negotiate with Huffman into remaining with the company, but they are going under the impression that he's finished.

Update On The Signature Pharmacy Investigation
Date Added: September 09, 2007
Story By: Ryan Gray
The Orlando Sentinel is running an article online analyzing the current investigation against the Signature Online pharmacy, which is an Orlando-based company that many suspended WWE superstars received HGH from. Prosecutors are working hard to prove that the pharmacy was providing prescriptions to patients that were never actually examined by doctors. The pharmacy had a large professional athlete clientele.

Signature Pharmacy's attorney, Amy Tingley commented by saying, "Signature Pharmacy was not and is not an underground distribution channel for professional athletes to get performance-enhancing drugs. We do not and have not distributed prescriptions over the Internet."

From "Wrestling Epicenter":
Quote
Ric Flair was on local sports talk show Prime Time with The Packman this morning on WFNZ here in Charlotte. He said he will be opening a new business in Charlotte this week called Ric Flair Finance. One must ask themselves if taking financial advice from a guy who continues to wrestle long past his physical prime because he has to financially is the best idea. "Whoo, take a tough job that takes you on the road and wears down your body and keep it until you're 112 years old. Whoo! And, don't pay taxes, daddy!"

Flair talked a little bit of football before the host asked him if he really quit WWE. Flair kinda laughed at it and said "No, it's not true." and asked what WWE would do without him. He didn't seem too sure of himself but he said he would talk more about everything next week on the same show.

I've heard that TNA live events are really good. I haven't been to one, they haven't come to Indiana yet. But  I go to alot of indy shows. Live wrestling is much better than televised wrestling. No post-production, no convoluted storylines, no commercials, no bullcrap. What you see is what you get.

Did they use the miniture version of the six sided ring that I saw in a picture? The one thats like 1/2 the size of the one in the Impact Zone?

Yep, they utilized the miniature ring they travel with. They couldn't do very much because of its size. I do have to say that seeing some of the X Division guys doing their thing live is way more impressive than on T.V. A.J. Styles Pele move really wowed the crowd.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

TNA have some amazing home grown talent, and I like some of the former WWE guys they've brought in, but some of the things they do call attention to themselves negatively.  VKM - a worthless pair already - and their "feud" with Vince McMahon was stupid, and the whole Pacman thing sends a bad message to the guys in the back.

WWE has come to terms on the release of Raw Superstar and ECW Original Sandman as of September 11. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors.

Huh, ok. It's funny, he did more stuff in his few weeks in Raw then he did his entire run on Sci-Fi's ECW. It's not a big deal, nothing great has happened with Sandman since everyone sung his theme song at the first ECW One Night Stand.

Still, I wonder what you have to do to get WWE in a firing mood at a time like this.

I'm hoping the whole Hornswoggle-as-Vince's-son is a temporary thing until Kennedy has served his time and can come back and claim the mantle of the bastard child.  I see a few goofy skits for the next month or so before returning to the story they had planned out all the way until Wrestlemania, apparently.  Sandman's entrance at One Night Stand was awesome, but he's done absolutely nothing of worth since, so I'm cool with his departure.

Can we say "jobber to Samoan Joe"?

Sandman's entrance at One Night Stand was awesome.

You know, what's funny is that while we were waiting for the TNA event to start when I went to see them at the NY State Fair, they were playing Metallica's Enter Sandman over the loudspeakers. A subliminal hint perhaps?
