PAGING DR. DEVINE! PAGING DR. DEVINE!
THE DOCTOR IS IN!
We are just 24 hours away from Power Pro Wrestling's HOMECOMING! It is the return of Power Pro Wrestling to where it all began and I can not wait. But before I jump into Homecoming I want to address some things I teased concerning TNA and WWE.
Let The Doctor begin with TNA! For those who know The Doctor, they know that I have been a BIG BIG BIG SUPPORTER of TNA. I have followed TNA when it was NWA/TNA putting on the 19.95 PPV shows. I stayed with them from there to the half hour TV show, to the one hour TV show to where they are now. I admired how they went about their business, slow and steady, they did exist because of Vince McMahon and the WWE but in spite of them. I will admit that when TNA started adding Kurt Angle, Booker T, Scott Steiner and Christian I got nervous about the future of the company I loved BUT I had faith in TNA and stayed true to the brand. Then Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff came followed by The Nasty Boys, Sean Morley (Val Venis), Ric Flair, Jeff Hardy...the loss of the 6-side ring...and my faith was shakened and fear set in. The things that I loved about TNA were disappearing. The X Division took a back seat. Gail Kim, Awesome Kong, Christopher Daniels and others left the company, Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Jay Lethal, Somoa Joe went from the front seat to the back seat or even out of the door. My beloved TNA was becoming WCW:Revisited by I hoped...I prayed...that it would end. That Dixie Carter would realize that she was walking away from what brought her to the dance. When they tried to go head to head against RAW on Monday Nights and failed, I thought...Dixie got the message and things would go back the way things use to be. Well...long story short...NOPE and I feel that my TNA is gone and as much as I would love to blame Hogan and Bischoff they are not the only ones or the main ones, that honor goes to Dixie Carter. I can't defend and support a brand who would allow Jeff Hardy to wrestle in the main event of one of their big PPV's so HIGH that he was lucky to find the ring much less get in it. I can't defend and support a company that does not see the writing on the wall nor the wail from their fans. I just can not. I will continue to watch TNA because...well, there is a bit of hope that one day she will see the light and end this madness...but mainly because of guys like Gunner (Phil Shatter), Robert Roode, AJ Styles, James Storm, Kazarian, Lethal, Daniels...the guys with talent and the REAL SUPERSTARS of TNA. The ones who carried TNA on their backs and shoulders while Hogan, Bischoff and the others were in WWE! No longer will TNA get the benefit of the doubt from me. From now on I will call crap, crap. I will stop buying and watching TNA PPVs, which were the only wrestling PPVs I was buying and watching. So that's it. I watched as WCW was lead to ruin and eventually destroyed. Now I will do the same with TNA with ONE EXCEPTION...I am going to continue to scream and shout about what is BAD and CRAPPY about TNA and support what is good about it (AJ, ROODE, STORM, LETHAL, KAZARIAN, SHELLEY, SABIN...) and hope that some how, some way Dixie Carter hears my cries and saves the day by saying "ENOUGH OF THE MADNESS".
One more thing...BIG SHOUT OUT TO TNA TV CHAMPION...PHIL (GUNNER) SHATTER...definitely a great talent, great guy and great champion.
NOW WWE! Again, those who know me know that my relationship with WWE is love-hate. It is because I have that Love-Hate with WWE that they keep pulling me back in as much as I hate being pulled in. They have pulled me in with the entire Michael Cole/Jerry "The King" Lawler program. I like, many, find Michael Cole annoying. The sound of his weasely, measly voice annoys me. Slowly but surely the WWE worked it's black magic over me and got me hooked on my hate for Michael Cole that I...a grizzled veteran...a ring general...a man with over 20 glorious years in the sport of professional wrestling...screamed at the TV like a mad man when Michael Cole interfered in the ladder match where Lawler could have walked away as WWE Champion. And it began from there...I know have nothing but hatred for Michael Cole and it is that hatred for him that has me watching WWE to see what he is going to do to Jerry Lawler and it keeps me coming back...I WILL BE DAMNED IF THE WWE HAS NOT GRIPPED ME AND PULLED ME BACK. I can't wait to see Lawler whip Cole's ass and in the mean time WWE hooked me on Undertaker/Triple H, Orton/Punk, Rock/Cena/Miz...DAMNIT MAN! Well played WWE...you are about to get some portion of my hard earned money for WRESTLEMANIA...yes WWE...well played, well played indeed!
POWER PRO WRESTLING: HOMECOMING! THE MAIN EVENT! Power Pro Wrestling is coming back to Moore County Fairgrounds where it all began for Power Pro Wrestling. It will also be a night where questions will be answered and action will be experienced! Now for weeks and months fans and wrestlers and Jimbo "Dick Foley" have been screaming at me to give him a wrestling contract and on Power Pro Talk I offered him the contract and at Homecoming I am prepared to present it to him at Homecoming. The provision is that he has to face Scrapyard Dog and defend the CIW U.S. Title. Homecoming will be the night that Fox will face the fans and some Power Pro Wrestlers as they toss him some hard questions in a question and answer in 'The Doctor's Corner". "The Master of Malice" Mark James has been invited to appear at "Homecoming" and when he shows up I will re-hire to Power Pro and the match for the CIW U.S. title will be a triple threat between Fox/Scrapyard Dog and Mark James. I know everyone is saying he will not be there but I have it on good authority that Mark James has heard my call and I know he will there to get his job back and to confront Fox. "Homecoming" will be a big night with Heavyweight Champion Ali Steele will defend against Ty Tyson with Samantha Starr, the PPW Tag Team Champions (Roland Dyce and Gleuteus Maximus) will be in action, as well as Scotty Matthews, Broderick G McQueen, Nate Roberts, Cade Sydal, STD and THE RETURN of Brandon Day!

And with that said...
THE DOCTOR IS OUT!
