FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

“Brutal” Bob Evans re-introduces Slamtech Wrestling Camp for Fall 2014

Format borrowed from my dear frenemy Truth Martini and great trainers Al Snow and Lance Storm.
We will be starting a SlamTech Pro Wrestling Camp on or around October 1.

It will be a 10-12 week program with several great benefits. For beginners and intermediates. This will be a powerful way to introduce yourself to the wild world of professional wrestling. It will also be an effective way to raise your game and improve exponentially in a short period of time.

All aspects of the business will be covered. Remember, I am an official trainer/scout for Ring of Honor and it is my job to develop and train new talent. We will be featuring several guest instructors from Ring of Honor as well, including Kevin Kelly and several ROH wrestlers. My resume speaks for itself but references will happily be provided.

Serious inquiries only. Dreamers are encouraged but dreamers who are DOERS as well. slamtech2000@yahoo.com or message me here.
Told you we’d be back.

Thank you.
“Brutal” Bob Evans

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

- We noted before that Brock Lesnar’s “party’s over, grandpa” comment to Hulk Hogan during his birthday celebration on RAW two weeks ago was not scripted and was something Lesnar, possibly with the help from Paul Heyman, did on his own.

TMZ recently caught up with Hogan and apparently he’s not happy about Lesnar’s comment. Hogan told TMZ:

“All I gotta say is Brock, I haven’t done anything to get in your way but if you keep throwing my name around I’m gonna get in your way.”

“You can’t say that stuff like you said Brock, in front of my wife and kids. It’s not cool brother. I know this is all entertainment. You know we’re supposed to have fun with it but when he starts throwing my name around, with my wife and my kids, it’s crossing the line.”

WWE Returning to Former WrestleMania Site for SummerSlam?, Why It Likely Won’t Be at MSG

Thumbnail

- We noted before there was talk of holding the 2015 WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view at either the Barclays Center in Brooklyn or the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ.

Even though the event would be held during the summer, there was some talk of trying to host the event at MetLife Stadium, the site of WrestleMania 29.

Regarding Madison Square Garden, it’s likely too expensive to run a major show there these days, compared to other arenas in the same area.

Former Bellator Champ’s UFC Debut Set, Daniel Cormier Mocks Jon Jones For Recent Comment

- Eddie Alvarez will make his long-awaited UFC debut next month against Donald Cerrone at UFC 178. Shortly after Bellator MMA announced that they had released the then-lightweight champion from his contract, Alvarez had agreed to a new deal with the UFC.

Back in 2012, Alvarez and the UFC appeared to be set to sign an agreement. However, Bellator held the right to match and they did, prompting a lengthy legal battle between the two sides. Alvarez eventually returned to Bellator and won the title, defeating Michael Chandler.

Alvarez (25-3) posted a 9-1 record all-time with Bellator, losing only to Chandler for the belt. Cerrone (24-6) carries a four-fight win streak with him into the September 27 event. “Cowboy” was originally scheduled to face Bobby Green at the card.

- Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones might not be seeing each other for several months, but that doesn’t mean the war of words has stopped. The two will meet in January at UFC 182 for Jones’ light heavyweight title.

During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Jones mocked Cormier for his finish at the Summer Olympics. Well, despite taking a while, “DC” has answered back in the form of a Twitter post – complete with picture.

Saw Jones on @jimmykimmel clowning me for 4th in the OLYMPICS. This morning I can across this little nugget :) #dummy pic.twitter.com/ukWigHeYLj

Backstage News On Why WWE Might Not Bring Bully Ray Back When He’s Done With TNA

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Regarding speculation that Bully Ray could be returning to WWE once his TNA deal expires, WWE expressed no interest in him for years and even when Devon was contractually available, WWE didn’t make a play.

Bully has his detractors within WWE from his previous run there, most notably Randy Orton, and his age is a factor. Bully just turned 43 this summer.

Bully could obviously be an asset in WWE developmental working with the younger talents or as a backstage producer but WWE seems to have those positions filled right now and they’re not making a lot of staff hires due to the ongoing budget cuts.
