    AWA Wrestling back on the air

    Actually Stewart and Gagner brought back the AWA together. Not sure of what capacity, if any he has there these days. Last I heard he was a motivstional speaker, and made headlines a few years back when I believe a college brought him in to tbe the speaker at graduation thinking it was Comedy Centrals Jon Stewart. His site: http://www.jonalanstewart.com/ edit: dang it looks like I should look at the link I provided: "Jon is currently is in the process of writing a book based on all of his travels and experiences with politics, wrestling and his other life experiences. He is also part owner of an automobile dealership in Chicago and has interests involved with real estate. In 2005, he will participate in the national college lecture tour discussing his historic Congressional campaign in 2000. Looks outdated.

    AWA Wrestling back on the air

    Grasping a bit but Mike Geogre was a late 80's Midwestern territorial headliner. he was a big star in the central states area in the 70's and when he appeared in the AWA he was in the midwestern based WWA that had a talent swaping agreement with the AWA.

    Boyd Coddington

    I'll roll the dice and stick this thread here. Car-Building Legend Boyd Coddington Dies By JEFF WILSON – 2 hours ago LOS ANGELES (AP) — Car-building legend Boyd Coddington, whose testosterone-injected cable TV reality show "American Hot Rod" introduced the nation to the West Coast hot rod guru, has died. He was 63. Coddington died at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in suburban Whittier at 6:20 a.m. Wednesday. His La Habra office spokeswoman Amanda Curry wouldn't disclose the cause of death. Coddington, who started building cars when he was 13 and once operated a gas station in Utah, set a standard for his workmanship and creativity, with his popular "Cadzilla" creation considered a design masterpiece. The customized car based on a 1950s Cadillac was built for rocker Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. "That was a groundbreaking car. Very cool," said Dick Messer, executive director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. "This was your modern era George Barris," Messer said. "He did things to hot rods and customs that weren't being done by anyone else. But the main thing is he designed cars that were drivable." Coddington was a machinist by trade, working at Disneyland during the day and tinkering with cars in his home garage at night and on weekends. His rolling creations captured the imagination of car-crazy Southern Californians and soon he was building custom cars and making money. Most often, he customized 1932 Ford "little deuce coupes." "It was one of those things when a hobby turned into business," Messer said, noting Coddington was also "one of the first guys to get into the custom wheel business." Wheels by Boyd were fetching $2,000 apiece, which was unheard of two decades ago. Coddington also surrounded himself with talent. Alumni from his shop include Jesse James and Chip Foose, who went on to open their own shops and star in reality TV shows. Coddington twice won the Daimler-Chrysler Design Excellence Award and he was inducted into the Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame, the National Rod & Custom Museum Hall of Fame and the Route 66 Wall of Fame. Always dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, Coddington said he loved his "American Hot Rod" Discovery Channel show, which featured ground-up construction of $500,000 hot rods. "The viewers are ... people who lived in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and loved these cars. Now, they have money," Coddington told The Associated Press in a 2004 interview.

    Comments which don't warrant a thread.

    AUSTIN (Feb. 28) - Drummer Buddy Miles, who played with Jimi Hendrix and sang in the claymation commercials featuring the California Raisins in the 1980s, has died. He was 60. Miles, who had been suffering from congestive heart failure, died Tuesday night in Austin, publicist Duane Lee said. LOS ANGELES - Singer Mike Smith of The Dave Clark Five has died, less than two weeks before the band was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band's publicist says Smith died of pneumonia today outside London. Smith was 64. The Dave Clark Five's hits include "Glad All Over," "Catch Us If You Can" and "Over and Over." Smith's illness was a complication from a spinal cord injury he sustained in September 2003 that left him paralyzed below the ribs. Smith had been in the hospital since the accident and was just released this past December. He had intended to attend The Dave Clark Five's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York on March 10th.

    AWA Wrestling back on the air

    From what I understand, ESPN pretty much owns all the rebroadcast rights to just about everything they have ever broadcast. They can't release a DVD, but can replay as much as they want.

    How much are you getting back in taxes this year

    I'd rather owe a little then get a lot back, I have better things to do with money then loan it to the government. The government likes those interest free loans alot of us give them.

    WWE suspends 10 wrestlers

    Know whats funny, Vince and the WWE beat the NFL, MLB, NBA, and every other sports league to the punch. Hell the WWE ain't even real. Now it'll be up to pro sports to follow the WWE's lead. Long term this wont't hurt the WWE, I think it's brilliant.

Shelor said there was no evidence of drag racing or "drifting" in Sunday's wreck. Police said Bollea -- known to viewers as "Nick Hogan" -- was not as seriously hurt as his passenger, who was listed as critical."
