I heard a Batista interview on the Jericho podcast a couple of years ago that said when Batista, Y2J and the third man in their triple threat all got colour against company policy at the time old VKM blew a gasket and fined them $100,000 each.

Jericho was quick to point out that Batista paid the fine for all 3 as it was his idea to get colour.

Was it not that the ref and Dean Malenko, who was the agent for the match, got fined along with Jericho and Batista? Jericho wrote about it in one of his books.

IIRC Vince refused to accept that Batista was the only one who knew it was happening, and told Malenko he should have known, despite it never having been discussed! He also went mental at them for not talking to him about it after the match, despite Jericho calling him several times.

I've not watched wrestling for about 10 years (was always WWE). Obviously I'm a bit behind in terms of the wrestlers, storylines etc but what's the best way these days to keep up to date? 

Are there any independent podcasts and websites which are suitable for newbies like myself? Any independent youtube channels which have good catch up shows?

Bleacher Report is good for reading catch ups. It usually has some short clips as well.

What Culture do Youtube reviews of each Raw and Smackdown. Be careful about their actual website though, as it's abysmal for adverts and trashy as f**k with tabloidy top 10 lists that read like they're written by a child.

Cultaholic do a similar Youtube review. 

Wrestling With Wregret also does a weekly Youtube video where he talks about Raw and Smackdown.

The WWE Youtube channel always has short video clips of incidents from each Raw and Smackdown.

Very sad indeed. Just yesterday she was replying to a whole load of fan mail. I believe she'd also been training over the past couple of months for an in ring return. RIP.

Awful, 39 is no age at all. She was one of the last of a dying breed of gorgeous divas, but with her own unique style. Really hope it was natural causes, but either way it'll place wrestlers and their early deaths back in the spotlight :(

Sounds like it was suicide. Horrible.

In addition to all of these guys, also check out OSW Review of you fancy seeing them pick apart some of the right old school stuff. Three Irish guys who chronicle the old PPVs and are up to about 1995 just now. Each podcast is about 1.5-2 hours and some of their patter is absolutely tremendous. 

They also do reviews on some of the bigger recent shows as well as really shite films. Their review of The Room is a scream.

I'm loving the look of the AEW roster and am loving the stuff they're saying.

However I'm very disappointed that they've signed Earl Hebner.

I hope they sign Brian Hebner! Best count in all of wrestling.

Is Earl on the merchandise stand?
