By: Anthony J. Valvo of Wrestleview.com

Introduction


Welcome to the latest edition of "From the Desk of Mr. V". I am Anthony "Mr. V" Valvo, your Wrestleview resident teacher with the same material as last time, but different names, matches, and articles.

So sit back and grab some coffee, cider, or bottle water. Relax as you read the 107th Installment of "From the Desk of Mr. V".

Quote of the Week

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." - Walt Disney

How many times do you hear the phrase "I will get to it later or I will get to it tomorrow"? I hear this nearly every time and every day of my life and honestly it does bug me. Many students in schools and life say that line way too many times and when one finally accomplishes the task, it may be a good piece of work but it was not their personal best.

As mature adults in this world, I ask all of my readers to back up the actions. Let us stop procrastinating in life and push the fast forward button! Instead of talking a game plan, execute the plan!

Same goes with some people that follow professional wrestling. Instead of talking about how bad a program was (and I saw TOO many complaints about the WWE product this week), explain yourselves. I know for one when I think something if wrestling or life is bad I don't just say one sentence and go with that, but rather do a bit of research and complete the task. Besides, do you think Walt Disney only "talked" about Mickey Mouse? No, Disney evolved their entire product over a high-pitched speaking Mouse and the rest is history.



So, my Wrestleview readers, don't just talk about success, accomplish success!

Teacher's Lecture

Now I have a few questions that I want to answer, so I will keep this portion to a few topics.

1) Alberto Del Rio, the 2011 Royal Rumble Winner.

Mr. V's Thoughts: The Royal Rumble. The unofficial "Countdown to WrestleMania (59 days by the way) began last Sunday and the winner was WWE newcomer Alberto Del Rio. For days, Del Rio said that winning the Rumble was his destiny. It sounded too obvious that Del Rio was going to win, but then the WWE would swerve and declare someone else as the winner.

With Del Rio winning the 2011 Royal Rumble, this further enhanced the WWE "new superstar" movement. I looked at the card and while the proven superstars still are the box office draws, the WWE was doing a fantastic job infusing new talent and based on what I heard in Boston it was a success.

Let's look at the matches. The Miz (in his first reign as WWE Champion) took on Orton, and sure Miz used "heelish" tactics to get the victory, but Miz held his own and wrestled as best as he could. Edge defeated Dolph Ziggler (who was competing in his first World title match on PPV, I may be wrong) in what I thought was surprisingly done well. Ziggler is seriously due to break out anytime in the WWE. No longer is he remembered as a cheerleader or a caddy, but Ziggler has staying power and still is a very young 30 years old.

I look at names like Orton, Miz, Ziggler, Del Rio, and many more that will soon take the WWE to a whole new level. All are in their low-30s and still have another possible ten years left in the business. All are main event-level talents and when their careers end in the WWE (if they all stay healthy) could be arguably the best in their generation (not of all time, as still my personal pick would be Bruno Sammartino).

Should Del Rio been declared the winner and get that title match at WrestleMania? You bet! And before people complain that a "rookie in the WWE" won the Rumble let me tell you that he is not your usual "WWE built guy". Instead, Del Rio honed his craft in Mexico and wrestled in AAA and CMLL which are the finest wrestling organizations below the United States border. He even won the CMLL Heavyweight Championship in 2007 (as Dos Caras, Jr.) and retained the championship for over a year. He has the charisma to ignite a crowd and show skills against the WWE's best.

Now, I think a huge reason for his success in the WWE was the way he was booked. He was talented and presented himself very well, but they booked him with a couple solid performers in his first couple months on Smackdown with Rey Mysterio and Christian. They built him up as this star, and I bet that almost everyone is surprised with how quickly he was pushed into the main event picture in the WWE.

I think he was the right choice to win the Royal Rumble. Usually, the WWE goes with an already proven star to headline the WrestleMania PPV. Instead, the WWE rolled the dice and I think it was successful. Del Rio is a fun wrestler to watch on television. He plays his part to perfection and usually wrestling fans would think his "push" is undeserving. However, a guy who is this good this soon can potentially work wonders (remember Brock Lesnar)?

And to those that still think Del Rio will never be a World Champion, here is a stat. Out of all the Royal Rumble Winners, only Jim Duggan, Big John Studd, and Co-Winner Lex Luger never won a Singles World Championship in the WWE. So Del Rio's destiny could very well be that of a World Champion after WrestleMania is over.

So, in closing it was right to "change things up in the WWE" and give Del Rio that victory. More than likely the top guys like John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk, The Undertaker, and others have their match set for WrestleMania. Also, Del Rio vs. Edge could be a good match. Sure, Edge may not be the same wrestler he once was. But I expect Del Rio to be a tremendous storyteller before the match and during the match. Personally, I hope that Del Rio wins that championship and I am sure not everyone will be pleased about it.

2) Booker T's new gig.

Mr. V's Thoughts: After Booker T's surprising appearance (if you did not read spoilers) at the Royal Rumble, there was speculation as to what would be next for him. Some sites said he would be back as a wrestler. Some said he will be a manager. But not many mentioned what he will be doing on the Smackdown brand.

With that mentioned, and I hope none of you get upset by this spoiler, Booker T will be the appearing as a commentator for Friday Night Smackdown. Now I know I have a question from my mailbag about Booker T as a commentator, so I won't go too far.

I looked at this hiring as a pretty smart hire, if Booker T is alright with it and if it is long-term. Booker T is a great entertainer that has the potential to be a strong commentator. I remember my first ever column and I took notes on his commentary as "Black Snow" on the week that The Main Event Mafia took over The Impact Zone. I found him at times back, but overall he was pretty good.

Now, with his impending move to the WWE commentary desk along with Michael Cole and either Josh Mathews or Matt Striker, it could make the WWE commentary a little more refreshing. As a wrestling fan that wants to be entertained with the product, I think this is a good position. I just hope that it lasts a while, and not a part of a storyline.

3) Kimbo Slice pulls out of his wrestling debut in Japan.

Mr. V's Thoughts: It does not surprise me. Slice's popularity skyrocketed years ago when he was a much-heralded underground fighter, but since then had a controversial MMA career. And while I was interested in his pro wrestling debut, it does not surprise me that he pulled out of the wrestling match in Japan because of an injury.

Now I won't question the injury, I am going to question why even consider it? If one does not have an idea of professional wrestling, in my opinion they should not participate. Professional Wrestling is entertainment with a hint of athletic ability. The business is more than just "I am going to hurt you, pin you, and win a title", but there is talking in front of thousands of people, selling an injury for an extensive period in a match, and doing one's best to market themselves.

I am going to use Zack Ryder as an example. He is athletic, but he markets himself very well on Twitter (@ZackRyder). And while Ryder worked his character out so well that he adapted pretty much everything since he was one of those "Major Brothers".

I am sure Slice's "handlers" market him very well. But at least have an idea of how the business is run (which The Wrestling Observer reported that they did not) and don't play wrestling organizations like chumps. There is just more to it than just "punching someone out".

4) Ric Flair's European Adventure.

Mr. V's Thoughts: I will admit that I did not really start following Flair's career until the early 90s. He caught my attention by being one of the best talkers and wrestlers at that time.

Let's fast forward to his recent issues. I am sure you, the readers of the column, read the news of the past week about how Flair demanded money and TNA just let him go. (TNA put him back on the bus afterwards).

It honestly reminded me of how he ripped on Shane Douglas (who no matter what anyone says is still one of my all-time favorites) for working at Target. I thought that was wrong of him to go that route because I knew that Douglas was working this job because he has two children that he is supporting. Douglas has managed his money well enough to enjoy himself the last few years.

Flair on the other hand, we hear that he is one of the best wrestlers ever. That is a strong accolade, but now I read his money issues and it is just a shame that he is at this level in life. I don't want to type much more about this issue that I already mentioned in last week's Teacher's Lounge, but I just want Flair to be safe and try to save his money. When he said "he will wrestle until he dies in the ring", I think he is right. However, we want to remember Ric Flair as "The Dirtiest Player in the Game", not the "I am going to bleed for a nickel" that I am watching now.

Money causes problems. We dream of having a lot, but only few are happy with what they have. Flair is in that route. I just wonder how much money he had since he started wrestling, but was not intelligent on how to invest those riches. I just hope Flair uses this as a wake-up call.

That wraps up my lecture for the week. Are there...

Any Questions?

This is the portion where I check my e-mail and answer any question from my Wrestleview Students. I do this because I do have a bit more free time.

Alright, I see a couple questions in the classroom.

Who is the wrestler that will appear in the WWE on 2/21/11?

I think I got this question from a few readers (you know who you are) and I am going to attempt to make a crack on answering this question.

Let's see the video first.



Now, let me put my thinking cap on. I heard four different options, so I will go ahead and analyze each one.

I heard Tyler Black (aka Seth Rollins), Awesome Kong, The Undertaker, and (gasp) Sting.

This one (oh my this is in a way hilarious)



Not this one



Tyler Black – In my opinion, I am taking him out of the equation already. Sure, in ROH and the indies, he was kind of a dark personality. However, this is the most popular wrestling company in the world and Black is still learning his trade in the WWE. He will make it someday in the WWE, but just not in February of 2011.

Awesome Kong – She does wear a trench coat to the ring and she is a strong women's wrestler. I think she would be someone that the WWE fans would enjoy just clobber the "cookie-cutter" divas. However, the pretending analyst in me noticed how the wrestler is walking and I cannot see it as Awesome Kong. She will be in the WWE soon enough and it might be in February if she can clear up a recent infraction with the law.

The Undertaker – The second of the four that wears a trench coat to the ring and the only one to wear something on his head. He was taken out by Kane and Nexus at the Buried Alive PPV. Yes, you read that right, Nexus. February 21 falls on a Monday and the WWE did have promos stating that The Undertaker will return. However, he is rehabbing an injury and while he may not be ready to wrestle in Late-February, he could return on 2/21/11 in character only. However, Nexus has gone through a lot of changes since The Undertaker's injury. He is already a proven star in the WWE and I am sure he plans on returning around this timeframe.

Sting – He is the third that enters the ring in a trench coat and this 2/21/11 promo is eerily similar to the one cut at Starrcade 97 in WCW. I saw YouTube videos from fans that are playing CSI Detectives and even saying that the smoke around the dates spelled out "Sting". It could be Sting because for a while he was the face of WCW (WCW was Headquartered in Atlanta, the host of WrestleMania XXVII) and when that company folded he opted to not go to the WWE. Later in his career, he was an important figure in TNA until he left the company in October 2010. With Booker T and Kevin Nash getting some kind of a deal with the WWE, it is possible that Sting will follow. Sting has accomplished everything in his wrestling career except for one thing. That was compete one time in the WWE. He said because the WWE product was not friendly enough. However, since the WWE went to the "PG demographic it is very possible that Sting has reconsidered.

MR. V NOTE: "If"..."IF" this is Sting and any of you call him a "sellout", you will be in detention. He has made enough and would only do this for a "feather in the cap of a legendary career".

Mr. V Guess-o-Meter

(on a scale that will total 100%)

Here is who I think (right now) this will be on February 21, 2011. Keep in mind I may be subject to change.

Tyler Black – 0% (sorry, it won't be him)
Awesome Kong – 5% (there is a slight change, remember she agreed in principal to a deal)
The Undertaker – 60% (He has somewhat of history with Nexus and CM Punk. The favorite)
Sting – 35% (This would be that final place for Sting to cap off his remarkable career)

Based on what I typed above class, I am right now leaning towards THE UNDERTAKER as the guy on the 2/21/11 promos.

Do you think that WWE programming can ruin the surprise of returns as they had recently did with the 2/21/11 vignettes, by promoting in Fresno, CA (where raw is on 2/21/11) who will return that day? (By: Ken Konarzewski)

I am not really sure how to answer it, but at times I am sure that the WWE ruined surprise returns at one point. If it is The Undertaker, then I think either the WWE is playing with our minds or they actually did somewhat drop the ball on a return (remember Daniel Bryan?).

Also, off topic question. How long can a person be a fan of something before they are "off the bandwagon" and are really a fan? Here is an example for you to judge. I jumped on the Miami Hurricanes bandwagon when I was around 6 years old during the College World Series. Miami was a great team, and I was 6, I loved Sebastian the ibis. As I am 24 now, I'm still a huge Miami Hurricanes fan, watch every football game, but still get tagged with the "bandwagon" tag. Is 18 years long enough? Do I have to go through a major drought? (90's Miami wasn't really that good) What can I do!!!!!! (By: Ken Konarzewski)

This is an issue that every sports team goes through. Take The Arizona Cardinals, when they won the NFC Championship a couple years ago. Then Kurt Warner retires, the team goes through a transition period, and the fans get off the bandwagon and wear opposing team jerseys.

I say in order to be a "fan" and not "bandwagon" of a team, it would be one of two things.

1) If you follow an out-of-town team for more than five (5) years – That means that you are one of the fans of that franchise or college team. My case is that for over 20 years I have been a Utah Jazz fan, yet I never spent a day of my life in Utah. No one called me bandwagon because I was a fan when the struggled and now they have a good team again. No matter what, I will always be a Jazz fan.

2) You stick with the team even when they stink – It ties with Rule #1.

So, Mr. President of the Unofficial Zack Ryder WOO WOO WOO Fan Club I say to your friends DETENTION to all of you!

Though I can't physically strike your friends and other people with a Golden Yardstick or Rotten Apple, I will allow you to offer them a seat in detention at my expense.

I just read on the site that Booker T is replacing Josh Matthews. Do you see him lasting longer than Mick Foley did on Smackdown, or will he, like Foley, get burnt out by Vince McMahon's infamous "headset tirades" Foley talked about in "Countdown to Lockdown"? (By: James Lacerenza)

Ah, the infamous headset tirades. Many fall due to the demands of one Vincent Kennedy McMahon when it comes to commentary. It did in the mediocre and at times great commentators of the sports entertainment industry.

Well, Foley lasted only about four months of Smackdown commentary before letting his contract run out and then signed on with TNA. As for Booker T, it is going to be interesting. I don't know how he will react to McMahon once he hears him screaming through the headset.

However, with the stories about McMahon not being as involved with the WWE adds a completely different variable. I am very interested in listening to Booker the first few weeks to see if he "gets it".

If I can give an answer right now, I think he lasts slightly longer than Foley. But not much. I do see Booker T in a way transition to a manager/part-time wrestler. However, if he amazes at commentary then he will last way longer than Foley's tenure.

Well, that is all for the questions. If you have a question please e-mail me at mistervwv@hotmail.com.

Detentions

R-Truth (nominated by many) – I don't know if it is because of his injury or that his act is getting tired, but he is not as sharp as he was at this time last year. He had a bad contest vs. Tyson Kidd on Superstars last week, lasted mere seconds at the Rumble, and could not "skin the cat" properly on Raw this past week. This just does not bode well, and that's "What's Up".

Storylines involving families – Look, the WWE was guilty with this at one point as well with Orton and HHH. But this angle with Jeff Jarrett and Kurt Angle really needs to stop. Their real life dirty laundry should not be exposed as a storyline on national television. Honestly, why can't Jeff Jarrett just stick with the goofy MMA gimmick? Why does Karen Angle-Jarrett have to be involved in a storyline?

Ric Flair – If all this stuff was true about cutting promo lines while being kicked off the TNA bus is true, then I really feel sorry for you. It is a shame that a wrestler who is still considered one of the best of all-time did not learn a basic rule in saving money.

Wrestling Music for The Corre – Nothing against those guys, but the theme music is brutal.

Ken Konarzewski's "friends" – Sorry guys, but if one is a fan for 18 years it is not Bandwagon.

That is all for detentions. More to follow in the later weeks.

The Time Out Chair – Ric Flair

This goes to a person in detention that really needs a time out until something or someone is equally as rotten. So this week I am going to make Ric Flair take a seat on the pretend Time Out Chair and keep him there until he manages his money better.

This is a new feature that will go to who I thought needed a timeout in professional wrestling or other ways of life.

Mr. V's Weekly Honor Roll Note

At this time, I would give out my Honorable matches. However, I am looking at my column and I slacked on a couple shows from last week.

So, this weekend I will work on a BONUS issue of "From the Desk of Mr. V" that will feature my Honor Roll on the matches of pro wrestling from December 29, 2010 to February 4, 2011. That way I will give you my best and show you my Grade Book. Hey, I only want to give you the best in professional wrestling. Stay Tuned for the Honor Roll this weekend on Wrestleview.com.

Final Predictions from the Faculty Standings (Season 2)

Before I present the standings, I want to thanks literally the scores of readers for participating even once in the predictions game for the 2010-2011 year. It would not nearly be successful without any of you. I considered closing this predictions game down, but this season I will give it another round.

There will possibly be a big announcement regarding the predictions game in the future. One new rule will be that I will take out the Students of the Week Standings and instead I will accumulate each "students" records and present the top three each time we do the predictions. Prizes can be issued as well. I don't know what the prizes will be, maybe a random coffee mug or even a month of Wrestleview VIP. I don't know, but this will be a incentive to be the "Head of the Class" of Wrestleview, right?

The "students" with the best single PPV record will still be able to show their predictions in the next PPV, that won't change.

Also, next season there will be a "Bonus Point" system and will be used as a tiebreaker. Stay tuned in a couple week and I will get this all planned out with the fellow staff members.

Mr. V's Gold Star Segment

Gold Stars brought to you by: ColtMerch.com! Take a look at Colt Cabana's merchandise and you won't be disappointed.

Also, while you are at it check out www.jrsbarbq.com. Jim Ross has some specials on all the BBQ Sauce you need. Look at his blog and maybe buy a product or two. I know I will when shipping is free.

So many Gold Stars, so little time. Here are people, places, things, or ideas that I thought earned a Gold Star this past week.

Evan O'Brien and Darragh O'Connor – The new hosts on the Wrestleview Radio Network. They will debut a show this weekend called "The Wrestleview International Desk" on February 6, 2011. I was a guest on their show and I had a tremendous time chatting with these two gracious hosts. Thanks for the opportunity and hope we can do it again in the future. Welcome to the family.

Greg McNiesh – The "Noble" man of Wrestleview's chat room is now a co-host on "The Velvet Room". Welcome to the family.

Colt Cabana – Seriously, this guy's podcasts are the best. Usually I refrain from saying "The Best" of something, but when you listen to his guests you can't help but to be in a better mood after listening. I highly recommend his interview with The Briscoes (the ROH Tag Team in case some are confused).

Dave Stephens – The Raw Recapper and columnist was consistent with his predictions that went literally year-round and won the 2nd Season of Predictions of the Faculty. He only joins Joe Baiamonte as the winners of this precious award.

Josh Boutwell and Jeff Springer – They were the winners among the Wrestleview Staff with a 3-0 mark for the Royal Rumble.

Gregory "Grash" Walek, Randy McWilliams, Nick Latham, and Ken Konarzewski – All four Wrestleview Students ended up with 3-0 records and will be the Students of the Week for the next TNA PPV, Against All Odds.

Jerry Lawler – It is honestly a feel-good moment that he is the #1 Contender for the WWE Championship. I smell a Cole/King feud that will have a nice payoff at WrestleMania, and that could be very interesting.

Derrick Bateman – He earned one for using the name "Turd Ferguson" in an NXT Challenge. It is wrong to say that was the highlight of the season?

Fuse.tv – I don't know if anyone else noticed, but they get a huge Gold Star for mentioning my 106th Column as "A Featured Article" on their website. I don't know if it is still there, but here is the link.

http://www.fuse.tv/news/articles/?article=08oJ6za0Ji1rf

If it is not there, I still thank them for considering my work.

Josh Boutwell – For being a great guest on The Teacher's Lounge last week. We were very honored that he provided his picks for all of you on last week's show.

The Miz – For winning the 2010 Golden Yardstick for Wrestler of the Year.

The Kings of Wrestling – For winning the 2010 Golden Yardstick for Tag Team of the Year.

Sara Del Rey – For winning the 2010 Golden Yardstick for Women's Wrestler of the Year.

Claudio Castagnoli – He gets one for staying "Very European". He got a new Claudio's Café show up on YouTube that features his trip in Japan and my many, MANY Starbucks stores.

To the New Wrestling Champions out there – Since the last Gold Star Segment, there were so many of them. Eve Torres won the Divas Championship, Mr. Anderson is the TNA World Champion, Abyss is the TNA Television Champion, Beer Money won the TNA World Tag Team Championship, Kazarian won the TNA X Division Championship, and Kofi Kingston won the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Booker T and Diesel – It was nice to see them both at the Royal Rumble.

To All the Golden Yardstick Winners – Congratulation on being the Best at your trades.

Short Cuts to all of Mr. V's Golden Yardsticks/Rotten Apples Awards columns.

Part One (January 6, 2011)

Part Two (January 13, 2011)

Part Three (Rotten Apples) (January 20, 2011)

Part Four (Featured Wrestling Article on fuse.tv From 1/26/2011 – 2/3/2011)
