I hope this wasnt an attempt to be a good heel.

If it was then WOW you really farked it up. If this was the 60s, you would have have no problem, because that is how heels acted back then. That was entertainment then. Prowrestling is very different now.

If it was the 80s, hell, 90s, he'd get away with it.

Adorable Adrian? Goldust?

Yeah, and there was that one time in 97 when King used a certain f word to describe Goldust.

Maybe you are right. I dunno.

2002: Chuck and Billy.

The only Vince wouldn't try to get away with another angle like that today is because he's back in Kiddie fare mode.

look at what Bobby Heanan or Jesse Venture used to say about non-Caucasian wrestlers.

Heanan once said the "B" in Koko B. Ware stood for Buckwheat and he had a brother named Stymie.

He was one of the ones involved in the early 1990s sex scandals, allegedly harassing Barry O, among others.

The man is just planning ahead. Once he retires from wrestling, he can sign up as a writer for World Nut Daily.

Posting on Twitter is like talking to the police; you should just never do it. At best, no one will care about whatever inane thing you have to say. At worst you can expose yourself as a bigot, lose your job, and even go to jail. What is said on Twitter can and will be used against you, never for you.

Apparently he offered to blow the driver when wrestlers went on the road. At least that is one of the claims made. Sex Lies and Headlocks did a short portion talking about Garvin.

FTFA: Slam! Wrestling, he would not get away with these comments if he wrestled in the WWE:
If a WWE wrestler made these statements, it would probably be pretty close to the end for them. Luckily for Briscoe, ROH is so far under the radar that he'll likely skate on these statements.


Sick burn.  Unfortunately I've heard of Ring of Honor wrestling, but I've never heard of Slam! Wrestling.  Sounds like a George Michael cover band.

I think he was wrestling Bad News Brown, but Piper painted himself half black for the promo against him and the match. The body paint took a week or two to scrub off and he had to walk around in public like that.

Yeah, Heenan could be terrible, but this little exchange at the 1992 Royal Rumble will always be one of my favorites:

HEENAN: "So wait, Virgil is like, number 14 or 15?
GORILLA: "Yes...?"
HEENAN: "Who KNOWS how many bags he's gone through in the locker room!!!!"
GORILLA: "WILL YOU STOP?!!?"

Aw man!  You missed his face runs in Georgia and the Mid-Atlantic!  His WWE face run was a shadow of what he was in both of those promotions.

FTA:

CageSideSeats.com states:

However, even if he wasn't the Ring of Honor World Champion, Jay Briscoe's latest homophobic outburst on Twitter should not only embarrass ROH management, but also the whole wrestling industry. It's one thing to politely disagree with gay marriage, quite another to say that you would commit acts of violence on anyone who teaches your children that it's OK.


No, ROH management will condone his statements, as they are owned by the good people at Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Why wouldn't a gay guy do with another dude the stuff that straight guys like doing with women?

Ropes, leather, a little massage oil. "Grappling."
