Tuesday Daily Update

Discussing the death of Perro Aguayo Jr. on The Christopher Gabriel Program in Fresno.

Kurt Angle has no regrets when it comes to not doing MMA.

Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. LaFlare.

  • Myself and Dylan Hales have started a new podcast, The Trade Marks, covering various topics related to intellectual property in pro wrestling. In the first episode, we discuss the arrest of WWE/UFC torrent capper/uploader "Sir Paul," the probable secret WWE lawsuit against various John Does this week to allow them to seize bootleg merchandise within a five mile radius of WrestleMania as they have in previous years, and the recent strong anti-piracy push on the indie scene.
  • WWE Network is now available (a day early) to Telus Optic TV subscribers in Canada if you call into their call center.
  • Dory Funk Jr's nex !BANG! TV Taping is this Saturday, March 28th, "!BANG! A MANIA" at !BANG! TV Sound Stage in Ocala, Florida. Showtime is 7:00pm - Doors Open at 6:15pm. The Main Event will be the Dory Funk Sr. Memorial Battle Royal.
  • Some today in history notes for March 24th:

George Wagner, the original Gorgeous George, was born 100 years ago today in 1915. If you're interested in learning more about him than just the surface stuff that's well-known, John Capouya's biography of George is fantastic, a must-read for fans of wrestling history.

Jumbo Tsuruta made his pro wrestling debut 42 years ago today in 1973 in the west Texas territory owned by the Funk family. Before Owen Hart, Juventud Guerrera, or Kurt Angle were considered among the elite rookies in wrestling history, Jumbo set the bar, quickly becoming one of the best wrestlers in the world, a class he was in until contracting Hepatitis B in 1992. To check out just how good he as as a rookie, watch his oldest videotaped match, a NWA title shot against Jack Brisco in AJPW from January 30, 1974.

WrestleMania VII was 24 years ago in 1991, and its probably best known for Ultimate Warrior "retiring" Randy Savage in the co-main event, which Warrior felt was at least equal to the Sgt. Slaughter vs. Hulk Hogan main event in helping draw the crowd/PPV audience (and he's probably right). His payoff at this show was one of the items centrral to the demand letter he sent Vince McMahon a few months later.

WCW Uncensored '96 was 18 years ago in 1996. The second-annual Uncensored, it was simultaneously much better than the infamous first show (thanks to Konnan vs. Eddy Guerrero and Steven Regal vs. Fit Finlay) while having a much more memorable low point: (the 8 on 2 Doomsday Cage Match main event where Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage beat The Alliance to End Hulkamania (basically the Dungeon of Doom and the Four Horsemen assisted by Tiny "Zeus" Lister as Z-Gangsta and Jeep Swenson as The Ultimate Solution) on their own.
