• “Absolute Garbage” – Former WWE Writer Buries NXT
A few years ago, internet wrestling fans praised NXT as the best wrestling show. However, that’s not the case anymore.
Fans started criticizing the show’s direction when Vince McMahon turned it to NXT 2.0. It’s back to being NXT, a show run by Shawn Michaels, but some fans still don’t like it.
During the latest episode of his podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. absolutely buried NXT.
Below is what he said:
“[Impact Wrestling] is going to be better than NXT. Because there ain’t nothing in the world worse than that goddamn show. I’ve given it a chance like once every 6 weeks.
I’ll go, ‘Yeah, I’ll watch a little bit of it,’ and it is absolute garbage. It went from my favorite promotion – when it was Black and Gold – to unwatchable. Unwatchable like a local theater production.
The last two times I’ve tried, it was terrible. I really don’t like crapping on stuff unless it offends me what they’re doing to talent that I care about.”

• On This Day In Wrestling History (January 7, 2011) – ECW Veteran Passes Away
On this day in 2011, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Big” Val Puccio (Real name: Valentino Puccio) at the age of 45 due to obesity.
Puccio also used to wrestle for the World Wrestling Federation during the early 90s, but only appeared on House Shows and never on TV.
A lot of 90s wrestling fans remember him for his 1995 stint in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling, where Val was a member of The Full Blooded Italians, short “FBI”.
† REST IN PEACE VAL PUCCIO
