As I reported, the wrestler who debuted as Chavo Guerrero’s enforcer last night on ECW was WWE developmental star Justin “The Ox” Laroche. Laroche wrestled as “Magnus Maximus” on the Midwest indy scene for many years. He spent a lot of time in Ohio Valley and was recently sent to Florida Championship Wrestling in Tampa. No word on what his ring name will be in ECW, the ECW commentators and WWE.com have referred to him simply as Chavo Guererro’s new “ally”.
Ric Flair did not appear (and was not even mentioned) on last night’s premiere episode of “Secret Talents of the Stars” on CBS. The show will be featuring four celebrities per week and Flair was not one of the first four. He won’t be on next week’s show either. As Bobby Heenan would say – that’s not fair to Flair!
Andrew “Test” Martin posted a new blog on his MySpace yesterday talking about his WrestleMania 24 weekend experience. Girlfriend Kelly Kelly asked him to be her date at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which is why he went. Martin talks about speaking with Vince McMahon, seeing Mick Foley at the Hall of Fame, witnessing Ric Flair’s speech, hanging out with girlfriend Kelly Kelly, and more. He also talks a bit about hanging out with Kevin Nash during the weekend, who picked him up to go to the Hall of Fame. “Of course when Kev and I arrived in the back you could see the snarls from the backstage people, thinking to themselves “oh great, Test and Nash are here,” Martin wrote. “Maybe Kev and I were bullies at one time but times have changed and no one likes a big tall guy who’s also good looking and that’s the real reason Kev an I have so much heat together. We joked about starting a tag team together calling ourselves the HSM as in the heat seeking missiles..lol.”
