Funking Conservatory - Results from Support the Troops 17, Red White Black and Blue
Dory Funk Jr. - Monday, July 2 2007 - 1:54 PM
!BANG! TV's Television Taping started 15 minutes early as the Funking Conservatory Arena was packed to capacity with a standing room only crowd of 200 avid wrestling fans.
Special Guest for the !BANG! TV Taping was Jack Brisco. Appearing on the card, Jerry Lynn.
In a three way battle for the Women's Championship, a new Women's Champion was crowned when Miss Vicki (Corner Person Shane Chung) won after first spearing The Claw, Claudia Reiff (Corner Person Jerry Lynn) then catching her own tag team partner, Lady Kimberly (Corner Person Blain Rage) with a spear then covering her for a three count. Lady Kimberly's foot was on the bottom rope however it was pushed off by Miss Vicki's Corner Person, Shane Chung and the Referee awarded Miss Vicki the Funking Conservatory Women's Championship.
In the final match, Elvis Sharp with the Pop Tarts, Lady Kimberly and Miss Vicki and Flyin' Ryan "Air" Mitchell with Sandii Skye became new Funking Conservatory Tag Team Champions winning by disqualification over Johnny Magnum and Jerry Lynn in a match held under TNA rules. (Championships can change hands on a disqualification) Sandii Skye's attempt at a low blow from behind on Jerry Lynn was ill conceived as Jerry Lynn blocked the low blow between his legs and reversed Sandii Skye into a "Bob Backlund" Special Chicken Wing and Half Nelson. The referee, The Claw disqualified Jerry Lynn for unecessary roughness on a non-wrestler of the opposite sex giving the Funking Conservatory Tag Team Championship to Flyin' Ryan "Air" Mitchell and Elvis Sharp.
The next !BANG! TV Taping will be Sunday July 29th. Appearing on the card will be Father James Mitchell and James Storm. For ticket information and Funking Conservatory Training Schedules call 352-895-4658 or visit www.dory-funk.com for more information.

AAW Press Release - Preview for Saturday 7/14
Saturday July 14th is the day every AAW athlete and every AAW fan has had marked on their calendars all year. July 14th the Berwyn Eagles Club will once again host AAW’s biggest event of the year, the third annual “Scars and Stripes”. This years show promises to be the biggest in the company’s three and a half year history. This is the night titles will be up for grabs, scores will be settled, and blood will be spilled. Let’s take a closer look at the card for AAW Scars and Stripes 2007!
JERRY LYNN WILL DEFEND THE AAW HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE AGAINST THE WINNER OF A 20 MAN BATTLE ROYAL
Jerry Lynn defeated Marek Brave on May 19th to become the sixth man to hold the AAW Heavyweight title. After resorting to a low blow to pin the young champ, Jerry Lynn would go on to taunt Marek and the AAW faithful. This change in attitude has forced the entire roster to take notice. Lynn was once one of the most respected veterans in the AAW lockeroom and is now one of the most dangerous. A 20 man over the top rope battle royal will be held at Scars and Stripes with the winner earning the first shot at Jerry Lynn and the belt later on in the evening. With so much at stake friendships will be set aside and this battle royal promises to be an absolute war.
Frankie “Kaz” Kazarian Interview Recap from Sunday Night’s Wrestling Observer Live Radio Show:
Steve Gerweck - Monday, July 16 2007 - 4:06 PM
- Frankie said Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe has everyone's respect in the locker room. He said no one is really the locker room leader, but said it's an asset to have guys like Kurt Angle and Sting in their locker room. He said it's a family atmosphere in TNA. He said lots of the X-division wrestlers look up to Jerry Lynn.

WRESTLER'S EYE VIEW LOOKS AT HOW THE BUSINESS SHOULD BE BUILDING CHARACTERS, THE MIZ, JOHN CENA, TNA'S PPV AND MORE
by Les Thatcher @ 1:41:34 PM on 7/19/2007
I would like to see Basham and Damaja at some point worked into the main tag team scene as they can step up if given the chance. While talking about TNA let me interject this. Rumors have surfaced that Sean Waltman might be headed in that direction. If that is the case, then please oh might creative people, give Sean and Jerry Lynn 20 minutes or so on one of your television tapings and let them go. Also get all the young guys gathered around a TV monitor for a lesson in how it's done. These two athletes are talented and mature and can be great teachers for the current crop of hopefuls.

Derek St. Holmes d. Tony Rican via submission
American History Next (Steve Stone & Brandon Blaze) d. Kris Hybrid and Bonebreaker Brooks

-In an amazing upset, Krotch won the 20 man battle royal and earned a shot at Jerry Lynn later in the evening.
It came down to Ryan Boz, Jay Ryan, Silas Young and Krotch. After Silas dumepd both of the big men out from behind he charged Krotch who ducked down and sent Silas flying over the top.
A promo from Eric Priest where he claimed he would defeat Joey Mercury later in the evening and then called out Heavyweight Champion Jerry Lynn saying it wasn’t the belt that makes the man but the man that makes the belt. Jimmy Jacobs interrupted Priest and told him he had three of the best wrestlers in AAW in his stable and the Heritage title would soon be back with Jacobs.
-Jerry Lynn d. Krotch to retain the AAW Heavyweight title
The underdog Krotch came close on a few occasions to scoring the biggest win of his career but finally was put away by a cradle piledriver.

Canadian Wrestlers in India Tour Controversy - One Arrested
Steve Gerweck - Saturday, October 27 2007 - 9:18 PM
from the IWS Newsletter:
India Wrestling Tour Controversy
A wrestler, presumed to be from Ontario, was jailed
after a one week tour of India by 16 wrestlers, mainly
from Canada, disintegrated in controversy and a near
riot as the organizers announced that it was cancelled
during the initial press conference.
According to the Times of India, Tiger Jeet Singh’s
Universal Wrestling Stars Inc., a Canadian wrestling
company, was scheduled to do a “India vs. Rest of the
World - War of Legends” tour in Patiala, Ludhiana and
Jalandhar. The shows were cancelled after organizers
failed to obtain permission from the Indian security
agencies and the sports department. In addition, they
were asked to pay a 125% tax on the tickets sold.
During the press conference, held Thursday, October
25th, the wrestlers expressed their anger at coming
all the way to India only for the tour to be
cancelled. The most angry was the “Russian” Nikita who
flipped a table in the general direction of the press,
called them “ugly Indian cheats” (which was described
as a “racial epithet” by the local press) and
challenged any Indian to wrestle him, saying “I am
here to kill you.” He was subsequently arrested and
his passport was seized.
In reality, the “Russian” is almost certainly Ontario
wrestler Alexander the Great aka Jason X, travelling
with Ontario promoter, trainer and wrestler Ron
Hutchison. Various Ontario wrestling insiders confirm
that it was him, based on videos of the press
conference and posters of the tour.
Needless to say, the Indian press accepts that Nikita
is Russian and some have even speculated that the
incident will affect relations with Russia. From a
Tribune opinion article by Shastri Ramachandaran
(hopefully with tongue firmly wedged in cheek), “It is
a relief that the organisers will be around to put up
a fight another day, and leave the country to now
proceed with a policy debate on what the fracas means
for India-Russian relations. Was this simply a
tactical blunder or is it a strategic failure with
long-term consequences for India, Russia and all those
smaller countries in between? Is it in anticipation of
this clash that top Russian politicos gave a wide
berth to Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Defence
Minister A K Antony when they were in Moscow
Also on the tour were high profile wrestling stars Sonjay Dutt, Jerry Lynn and Steve Corino.
Four joshi (women wrestlers) from Quebec and Ontario
were also scheduled to appear: Kacey Diamond, the
first champion of ALF (Association de Lutte Feminin)
the only monthly joshi promotion in Canada; Josianne
the Pussycat, a veteran of Carmen Elektra’s Naked
Women Wrestling League; respected veteran Misty Haven,
wife of Ontario’s Michael Von Payton; and Portia
Former International Wrestling Syndicate Canadian
Champion, Dan Paysan was also booked on the tour,
scheduled to feud with Sonjay Dutt as the masked “Mr.
All of the wrestlers are staying at the Hotel Park Plaza in Ludhiana, waiting for their previously scheduled return. In other words, despite the tour being cancelled, the wrestlers are in India for the duration of what would have been the tour.

AAW Windy City Classic III Results
Submitted by Errol Leigh Farrell on Sunday, November 25, 2007 at 3:24 PM EST
Jerry Lynn d. Keith Walker to retain the AAW Heavyweight title
Walker man handled Lynn in the early going. Lynn was able to take out the right leg of the cahllenger and wear him down. Walker made a comeback but the referee was taken out. Jim Jesus came to ringside and gave Lynn a steel chair. It took two chair shots, two low blows and a cradle piledriver to keep Walker down.
Walker was furious after the match and hit referee Andy Long with the Walker Driver.
Danny Daniels d. Tyler Black in an "I Quit Match" after Black passed out
These two hit each other with EVERYTHING they had. Ladders, shovels, chairs , barbed wire and tables. Too much to recap here. In the end Jim Jesus and Jerry Lynn came to ringside to help Danny Daniels!!!! Daniels applied a "rings of Saturn" submission as the fans rallied behind Tyler Black! When Black passed out from the pain Daniels was declared the winner. Jim Jesus told Tyler it wasn't personal, it was about money. Jim Jesus had placed a large bet on Daniels to win the match and had to do what it took to win that bet. "The New JJ Inc" of Jim Jesus, Jerry Lynn and Danny Daniels stood in the ring as the show came to a close.
AAW is back in Berwyn on 12/15
Leticia Cline Speaks On Going To WWE, TNA, Russo, More
Ryan Gray on 12/10/2007
Leticia Cline joined the Daily Suplex Radio (http://www.thedailysuplex.com) Sunday evening for an interview with the hosts Brian Thomas, Big Luther and Jon. She spoke about her entrance into the wrestling business, the reaction of the veterans, TNA's backstage morale, and much more. Here is a recap of what went down in this 30 minute interview:
On her scripted altercation with Crystal: Leticia doesn't know if her angle was heading anywhere and that it was just kind of thrown together. She had been training with some of the girls and Jerry Lynn for a while to be able to get in the ring and more physical, but never got to use it.
