Another WWE Release and 12 Rounds note

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2009 by biggman621

The WWE has released now former Smackdown! Superstar Kizarny. Kizarny hasn’t been exactly well received in his matches, so I am not surprised this was coming.

Personally, I thought the gimmick was stupid, to be blunt. I mean, who really thought a carny would be a good idea for a gimmick.  Clown is Good, Carny is Bad: so Doink is awesome, Kizarny, not so much.

If the gimmick isn’t whacked out enough, then Kizarny opened up his mouth. I don’t know about anyone else, but I would play the promos over and over to figure out what he was trying to say.  All of my attempts failed absolutely miserably.  The way you get around that is the same way you deal with Muhammed Hassan, use a manager (Daivari aka Sheik Abdul Bashir).

In a separate note, on RAW tonight, in the 15 minutes I actually was able to see, they showed a trailer for the movie 12 Rounds starring John Cena. Honestly, it looks ok but it reminds me of the original Speed movie, which makes sense with it being the same producer.

One of my professors sent me this article:

Michael Winerip of the New York Times wrote an interesting article related to wrestling. In the article, Winerip talks about the basic plot of The Wrestler and if it is reality based.

Tito Santana, a former Worldwide Wrestling Federation Intercontinental Champion and Hall of Fame member, is wrestling on the local indy circuit at the ripe age of 55. Santana’s recollection of moments in his life was very insightful, and could prove to be useful for other prospective wrestlers.

Santana did say that he knew people who were mirror images of Rourke’s character in the movie, although he never released the names.
