    Episode #245 - Money Plane

    What the film doesn't tell you, is that if Edge would have been arrested for his crime, he'd have had to go to Wrestlers' Court. What is Wrestlers' Court? Well, I'm glad you asked, Timothy. Wrestlers' Court was an arbitration process in the wrestling business, set up by "Dirty" Dutch Mantell to settle disputes between wrestlers, so that the promoters didn't have to get involved. In WWE, there was a prosecutor, who would represent "The Locker Room" as a whole, this was the role usually taken on by John "Bradshaw" Layfield, who would bring forth charges against the defendants. The defendants had the option of hiring another wrestler to act as a lawyer to defend them. There was a bailiff to keep order, this was usually Kane, because he's massive. And then there's the Judge, that was usually the most respected man in the locker room, The Undertaker. Although, others have filled the role, like Triple H. So, what would happen is, someone would be summoned to the Court under charges, the prosecution would present the evidence, witnesses would be called, and then The Undertaker would decide whether the defendant was guilty, and what their punishment would be. However, this court was a corrupt one, and cases have been dismissed thanks to tactical purchases of Jack Daniels, and other gifts. Some of the more notable cases were: This week's movie's star, Edge, his tag team partner Christian, and WWE writer Brian Gewirtz, for being too friendly. Edge & Christian were buddying up to Gewirtz for TV time, and Gewirtz was giving them "Better material because they kissed his ass". Charges were dropped after buying The Undertaker a bottle of Jack Daniels Mick Foley and Al Snow were charged for leaving Bob "Hardcore" Holly at the Airport, to go to a funfair. Foley and Snow had to pay for Hardcore Holly's travel, and Hotel, for a week. Teddy Long was accused by The APA (Bradshaw & Faarooq) of "being a cheap motherfucker", by pretending to fall asleep at toll booths, and "Forgetting" his wallet. He was sentenced to pay for the APA's Chicken & Beer for a month. Teddy Long, again, this time for "Procuring Viagra, and selling it for a profit". I don't know the sentence for this. Bill Goldberg, was charged with disrespecting Chris Jericho. He was sentenced to standing in front of the whole roster, and admitting that Chris Jericho is more talented than he ever will be. Melina was charged for "being a bitch". She was basically made to cry in front of everyone. Muhammad Hassan was charged for "disrespecting a veteran", when he told Eddie Guerrero to stop using his finisher, the Camel Clutch. What Hassan didn't know was Guerrero's father actually invented to move. Hassan was sentenced to pay the entire roster's bar tab for the evening, which was said to have been over $5000 The Hardy Boyz, for sitting in Kane's first class seat on a plane, causing Kane to sit in an economy seat. While Kane was fine with it, The Undertaker believed that the 7' Kane should not be made to squeeze into a coach seat. The sentence was to prank another wrestler by breaking toothpicks in the locks of his car. The Miz, for eating chicken over Chris Benoit's bag. His sentence was that he was banned from the locker toom, and get changed in the public toilets. Simon Dean, for suggesting how a segment could be improved to Roddy Piper, this is a big no-no. So, he was sentenced to having his bags thrown in the showers. Shawn Daivari, for answering back to Shawn Michaels. He was sentenced to doing 1000 squats with Chris Benoit.

    Oh god, that Jim Cornette one. His telling of the story, when he said that "In a wrestling ring, there's a little give, and you bounce a little, I didn't bounce, and that just made it worse". With Sid, that was basically John Laurinitis saying to him "You're our top babyface right now, you need some flashier moves", Sid said "Well, if I'm the top babyface, I must be doing something that's getting me over, so what do I need to do?!" John then pretty much said "I want you to do aerial moves, do that big boot off the second top". When Sid protested, he was told "Well, if you don't do it, then maybe you don't need to be working here anymore". Then we saw what happened. Goes to show you how messed up that whole company was, that they were willing to fire the guy who they admitted was their top babyface at the time, because he didn't want to do a move that could, and did, horribly injure him.

    Especially when you have Paige, who had to retire from a similar issue aged 25, and they insist that she's never gonna come back, and Edge came back aged 46, every bump he takes makes me wince a little. Then again, every time someone jumps off the ropes and lands on their feet, I still cringe because of the Sid Vicious injury.

    Edge basically went to WWE and said "I want to come back, and if you don't want me, then I'm going to AEW, either way, I'm getting back in the ring".

    I think the problem with Edge was that he was too close to a comeback, and probably didn't want to risk aggrevating his injuries, which is why you didn't see too much action from him, and probably shot around him. But, you're right, he'd have been more suited to a comedic role. In terms of them casting a wrestler in the role, maybe someone like the former Wade Barrett. He's believeable as a tough-guy fighter, but also has that "cool" look about him to fit into the heist genre. That being said, if June thought Edge was too big, the even bigger Wade Barrett would be even worse for her.

    My dad managed to fall asleep when we watched it in the cinema. Goes to show you just how bad it was, a loud-ass movie like that, and it still lulled him to sleep.

    If it turns out he's sitting on Mortal Kombat: Annihilation...

    I watched a "Where are they now" thing about them. The original two guys who started were arrested in Thailand (I think), for stealing body parts, and then trying to mail them back to the US. Just makes you wonder what goes wrong in these people's lives to turn out like that.

    Funny thing about that guy in the Dr. Phil interview is, he wasn't one of the creators. He basically screwed the guys who started it, and took it for himself.

    All of this talk of people betting on things that are morally wrong just reminded me of something. Anyone else remember Bum Fights?

    Some suggestions: - Russian Roulette Beer Pong. Same rules as Beer Pong, however, one of the cups is poisoned, first one to die loses. - The Crushed Glass Muay Thai fights from Kickboxer. - The Landmine Sprint. Competitors line up at the start, you bet on who will A.) Not Die, and B). Finish the race first. . Road Rash. Sort of like the old video game. A bunch of people on motorbikes, with the melee weapon of their choosing. But, instead of a race, they just keep going until there's one left standing - Bullfighting. I don't mean like the they do in Spain, I mean actual fist fighting with the bull.

    Episode #245 - Money Plane

    When they talk about watching "A man fuck an alligator", I don't think that was supposed to be a bestiality reference, I think they were trying to say that the guy was gonna beat-up the alligator. The reason is this promo by MMA fighter, Jeff Monson in the lead up to his fight with Mark Kerr. For those with the inability to listen to this, here's the transcript... "Jeff Monson here. You like watching people get FUCKED for free?! Watch me fuck up Mark Kerr for free on DonKingTV (dot) com! LIVE! Saturday September 27th 9pm eastern time LIVE on DonKingTV (dot) com! I'm gonna fuck him up! I'm gonna fuck him up! I'm gonna put these hands right around his face, and beat his ass, You watch us live for free, DonKingTV!" So, thats why I think it's about beating up the alligator.

    You know something, the more I think about it, the more I think Kelsey Grammer being "The Rumble" is a poorly researched reference. Because Kelsey Grammer was Frasier, I think the writer called him "The Rumble" because of "The Rumble in the Jungle", thinking it was Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier, which was "The Thriller in Manila", and not Ali vs. George Foreman. Although, if that was the case,I don't want to live in a world where Kelsey Grammer calls himself "The Thriller".

    Well, you know something, last year, I bought a Philips Amibilight TV, which is a TV that has lights around the outside which matches what goes on on the screen. And, if you buy the Philips Hue Smart Bridge, you can connect your houselights to it, so it adds to it all. So it looks sort of like this: Since I got that, I'm all about twinkly lights. That, and I love Christmas

    Edge is a weird one in that respect. He was married to Val Venis' sister, and cheated on her with his second wife. Then he cheated on his second wife, with Lita. So, when he cheated with Lita, who was engaged to Matt Hardy at the time, and Edge was the one who came out looking the best of everyone. Hell, Matt Hardy, the one who got cheated on came out of it looking the worst because of his reaction, and ended up getting fired because of it. I'll tell you this though, if he cheats on his current wife, Beth Phoenix, there's a pretty good chance that she'd whoop his ass.
