We all have heard about behind the scenes rivalries. For every Bret/Shawn or Jericho/Goldberg that makes sense, there is always something that seems random or funny, like Iron Sheik's hatred of all things B. Brian Blair.

I was going to make a post in the weekly thread about one of the newest, random beefs, but figured it could be a fun thread.

I'll start with one I never would've seen coming:

Elijah Burke/ "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero vs Marty Jannetty

Apparently Jannetty hit Balls Mahoney with a really bad chair shot at a recent indie show and The Pope is calling him out through Facebook...

"Have anyone heard from Marty Chairnetty??? You know, the guy that single handily almost did in one night to Balls Mahoney what sex, drugs, and ECW couldn't do in 20yrs; End His Freaking Career!?!??

"Well, If ya hear from the coon, let'em know that Pope is out of semi retirement for the moment and is hoping that he grow some balls, head to Orlando, do what Pope won't do, and that's kiss Hogan's @ss, and beg for the opportunity to show up on iMPACT WRESTLING OFN and call Pope out. Hopefully he's dressed in his 1980's Rockers attire, otherwise Pope may not recognize him! ~ PHS."

Bret Hart's feud with Greg Oliver (ghostwriter for a bunch of old school wrestlers' autobiographies) was really bizarre. Basically, for those who haven't heard about it/don't remember it, Oliver writes a book about Canadian wrestlers and ranks Bret at No. 14 of the Greatest Canadians Pro Wrestlers of All Time. Right behind Sky Low Low. Bret Hart then proceeds to call Oliver out in the middle of inducting Stu Hart into The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame and threatens to leave the room if Oliver doesn't leave first. Well, Oliver stays and Bret (and a couple of other wrestlers) sulk out of the room. Saying Bret Hart isn't one of the ten best Canadian wrestlers (or five best or one best) of all time is ridiculous trolling but it's really not worth derailing a speech honoring your father over. I mean, c'mon Bret, it's not like more than a couple hundred people read that book anyway.


I mean who knew Bret Hart to be petty and self serving?

That Bret one seems somewhat familiar.

In update to Pope vs. Jannetty, Marty has Facebooked back!

"Someone get this word over to big mouth Elijah "The Dope" Burke . it's really quite simple..take a look at the suicide dive over the top rope on Jerry Lynn..Jerry Lynn is one hella competitor, so I brought my A+ game to that match..it took a lot out of me and out of Jerry but,the crowd of 1300 were on their feet cheering BOTH of us on as the match progressed..we gave everything we had in the ring, neither of us had much energy left to walk back to the dressing room, where we were met with a standing ovation. and word in the streets is people have been talking about it ever since..Here's the thing you need to think about Mr Burke.. I like Jerry he's a friend, I like Mahoney, he's a friend(he just couldnt keep up the blistering pace) what that means to you Elijah Butts(whatever your name is this week), things in the ring with you will be a whole hella lot different..now, if you got any "Balls" like your boy Mahoney..stop talking shit and get in the ring with me. You wanna call me out on where? South Compton Street Corners? Sheeit I'll come there to you, I probably got more friends there than you do..you gonna find out the in the worse way, I aint your average white brother..(b4 anyone hits me up with this being racist over these comments, consider I have a black girlfriend and the Compton comment is because I heard that's where he was hidding out, or was "hangin out" this past week with TNA.. I tell you you what Mr. Butts, rather than you just bumpin your gums and flapping your yap all negative about me and what you can do about it, let me put it out there like this..ANY PROMOTER, ANYWHERE WANTS TO BOOK A ""STREET FIGHT"" BETWEEN ME MR BUTTS (OR WHATEVER HE CALLS HIMSELF , THE POPE) I'M READY TO SIGN FOR THE FIGHT RIGHT NOW..ANYWHERE..BUT HEY HOW BOUT THIS MR BUTTS, RAHWAY,NJ WHERE YOUR BOY THREW UP, I'M SURE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO COME THERE IN HIS DEFENSE AGANST ME..BUT THIS IS OPEN CHALLENGE TO ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY, HELL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!..POST THIS ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE YOU WANT AND CAN(IN FACT EVERYONE DO THAT, WATCH HOW FAST WE FLUSH THIS RAT OUT).. STEP UP MR BADD AZZ ELIJAH BUTTS..POST THIS ON PLACES YOU RUN YOUR MOUTH.CAUSE WE TALK ABOUT IT, OR WE CAN BE ABOUT IT..I CAN SHOW MUCH BETTER THAN I CAN TELL YOU WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN TO YO AZZ IF YOU GRAB THE NUTS TO STEP UP IN THE RING IN STREET FIGHT MATCH WITH ME..WAIT,QUIETLY LISTEN FOR A COUPLE SECONDS........YOU HEAR THAT?...THAT'S THE SOUND OF MR. BUTTS SHITTING IN HIS PANTS RIGHT NOW!"

That rant by Marty was better in the sections I hummed the Rockers theme while reading it.

Somebody needs to explain to Marty Janetty how worked shoots are done. You don't challenge someone you don't like to work a match against you. You just talk shit about him on the internet and make appearances at his shows. You don't challenge him to do business with you.

Konnan and Chavo Classic seem to be starting a Twitter feud.

Maybe he hates that he can't pronounce "alliteration" properly?

Marty Jannetty now calling out Johnny Rzenik from the Goo Goo Dools on Twitter. Strange Wrestling/'90s Rock Stars Feuds

Road Story: so what had happened was... we were in Buffalo, NY next day after a show...and my tag team "partner" decided he was too good to do this autograph appearance..claiming..'we are gonna do a signing with some local band?? we're world wide famous!! they are just buffalo"...well in that sense he was correct..but, in that sense he was being a dick..I did the appearance..sitting next to the lead singer..I was hung over like a mo~fo.. imagine that..me hung over, then got this 11am signing in the ballroom of the Buffalo Hotel(wasn't the name, I wont say, cause they did nothing wrong)
so..I'd done 1 thousand signing by then..and met incredible people doing them..ask Vanna White.. ya hurrrd me?? but so..we all are hung over and not at our best at 11am..you kidding me, we don't even wake up till noon, let alone wear a happy face for fans..I do love my fans, that's not what that meant, it meant if I showed yall my real feel, y'all would say "what a dick he was"..I get that..even if you were the dick that came up and said.."wrestling's fake aint it?" sign this WWF book and these 28 pictures I have of you"..so..anyway...
I'm sitting there with a line in front of me..and as usually the case, some fools look to see other's line, I guess thinking "I'm more popular".. so anyway, this dickface cutie boy was next to me..elbow to elbow..signing away...people always end up cutting up together when doing a signing..always..no matter how different or what you do, act, sing entertain(wrestle,lol) whatever, you always cut up together..and usually exchange autographs on pics AND NUMBERS, even though you both or all know that the number will never be used..its just what we do...
this crap eater, kept asking all the girls who came up..as he flipped his hair.."oh hey baby, hey who looked better me or ****** (the name of the previous singer) and damn..after the 30th time I hurrrrd that..and the lil gay boy didn't offer to say hey, even though I looked and gave so many opps to do so..just kept being a soft spoken he~she kinda guy...to girls...I wanted to cup o fart his face(guys know what that is)
so..me and that ninja spent 2 hours of signing elbow to elbow..never said "hey"..but...I went back to my room, got my things ready to drive up to Toronto..and got a knock at my door..a BEAUTIFIL girl..blonde and huge...uh..yep, both, .pumps and a bump!! ya hurrrd me? so when we were done...lol..hurrd that?? I had to hurry..I told her..gotta go..got a number (I didn't really want it, its just an exit thing) but she said.."maybe you shouldn't try calling or staying in touch with me, Im *******'s girlfriend..he's a dick head but, he is about to make money"...never saw her again..but saw her boyfriend on MTV for a many a year after that..never can forget that day....Im not sure, but I think her name was "Iris" (she told me that b4 the song ever came out.. so you guess what up!!!!! ya hurrrrd me????

Nutshell:

Bischoff wanted a Goldberg/Jericho program in '98, just something quick and easy, but the wrong people (Hall, Nash, Hogan...take your pick) got into Goldberg's ear and told him that he was above it all, so Goldberg threatened Jericho to stop making fun of him and Jericho pointed out that he's doing what he's booked to do. Bischoff wanted the match to be a quick 30-second squash on Nitro, Jericho refused because he knew that it would help a PPV buy (which it kinda would since his trolling of Goldberg was a major highlight in late summer '98), blah blah blah...they have heat.

Fast forward to '03 when Goldberg is in WWE, and the two of them have some words backstage. Shit gets heated, Jericho tells him he shouldn't be fucking with the guy who he's about to work with because "I could make you look great or like a pile of shit and you wouldn't know the difference," and Goldberg lunges at Jericho's throat. Jericho knows enough about self-defense that he locked on a front facelock and they literally spilled out into the hallway with fans going by, some other guys jumped in and broke them up, and then Goldberg pulled his hair and Jericho just palm-faced him...then Goldberg left.

This nutshell is large.

Marty got coked up and fucked a twink.

I guess the "rock, rock, till you drop" line has other meanings.

Rikishi's pissed at John Morrison cause he trashed his brudda (or nephew. Roman Reigns is Rikishi's nephew IRL, yeah? Cousin?) Roman Reigns. Worth reviving this thread.

The sad thing is Rikishi inadvertently made the IWC's argument as to why they're sick of Reigns for them

also like to point out most of the people wouldn't know who Rene Dupree if it wasn't for La Resistance.

Haha like anyone knows who Sylvain Grenier is. One nobody calling another nobody a nobody.

Dupree is looked at as a talent who had a lot of potential and was hurt by being called up way too soon and being paired with Sylvain.

Sylvain is known as the guy that was inexplicably on the roster, couldn't work, and was a pain in the ass backstage.

Sunny and Brooke Tessmacher/Adams going back and forth on social media

Sunny took shots at pregnancy photos and Brooke questioned why pregnancy photos disgust her when she puts her porno out. Back and forth battle ongoing.

Chavo was an ass the time I met him at a FanFest when just about everyone else was cool - and it seemed beyond one of those "bad day" things. It kinda surprises me when some people gush about him, so seeing this is kinda funny because it is more what I picture. And even at his current age, wouldn't want to see a pissed off Scott Norton.

I remember thinking Norton sucked in WCW, but after watching his NJPW 90's stuff he's way better than Chavo.
