12:15 pm - I see a bad moon rising.
Whats up,

Yes I know I have no updated in forever but here we go with some randomness.

- Sabu is a F%$#ing warrior. Broken Arm, chopped off end of his finger, and partially scalped and he still shows up for a ass kicking. Hopefully we can do it again.
- Yesterday was national Enzuigiri day? did you forget? Its ok I think today is national punch in the face day.
- The crowd for ROH's philly show was awesome. Now I have to kill a swiss man and I should feel better.
- I just got a advanced copy of TNA's Best of Samoa Joe DVD realease and I think its pretty good. Rest assured it is clipping free. Full Matches only. It drops June 6th!
- Final Fantasy Advent Children has some awesome action sequences
- Minoru Tanaka is your new favorite wrestler, just dont be offended if he hates all you round eyed westerners.
- I hate white Jeans
- Current Xbox 360 games of choice.
Oblivion (Aka videogame crack)
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare
Fight Night Round 3 ( I knock Chritian Cage the F%$# out!)
Burnout Revenge

Thats about all. I will try to be more regular about updating.
Until Next time.

04:58 pm - Some Clarification.
Attentions fans in the UK and Germany.
I will not be appearing this weekend for PWG.
Upon arriving to LAX I was informed that our flight to Chicago was delayed and that unless we made it onto a flight at 10:45 standby that we would most likly miss our connection to Manchester and our connection to Dusseldorf. Well I did have a potential seat on the standby flight that was quickly gone when the last ticketed passenger arrived before the gate closed.
The option offered to us by American included a series of unconfirmed standby flights and even a train trip which I opted out of and decided to stay home rather then be stranded playing catch up across Europe. Also since PWG's "office" had already flown to Germany early in the morning re-booking was next to impossible.

My apologies to the fans but from all reports most other PWG talent will be able to make it to the show safe and sound. As a addendum my former "non appearance" at PWG in LA was simply a result of PWG never confirming the booking with my booking agent and it not appearing on my monthly schedule.

S. Joe

Hopefully these difficulties will be remedied in the future.

07:10 pm - Health Update.
Just to let everyone know what is going on.
After my last show in detroit I noticed a small cut underneath my right arm right near the armpit. It was a little red and irritated so I cleaned it and paid it no mind.
Over the next few days it had swollen (to about the size of a large marble) and I decided to head to the doctor right away.
As I susupected the doctor diagnsed it as a pretty severe Staph infection and I am now on antibiotics. Next week I will be looking into getting it drained.
If anything my non participation this weekend is not only for my safety but the safety of my co-workers in ROH. The last thing anyone needs is a epidemic and for something like this to spread.

A note to indy promoters out there.

I am suprsed I have actually gone this long unaffected.
It takes nothing more than some diluted bleach and a handtowel wipedown to prevent this type of stuff from afflicting your wrestlers.

I apologize to the fans of the midwest this weekend and I promise I will do my best to make it up to you all next time ROH swings through the midwest.

My special thanks to Gabe Sapolski and the Ring of Honor office for being VERY understanding. Regardless Low Ki has been added to the shows so rest assured I should not be missed too much.

05:26 pm - I'm Back
Well I'm back for a much delayed journal update.

For all the people who sent kind words about the PPV match, thank you. I am glad you enjoyed it and I really am (along with guys like AJ, Daniels, hell damn near everyone in TNA) trying to deliver the best action for your PPV buck.

On the injury side yes I did dislocate my Jaw but thanks to TNA's awesome resident Chiropractic/Kinisiology/Fix your broken down ass expert Dr. Craig Aaron he was able to reset my jaw after the match and it is suprisingly comfortably today sans some limited motion and a occasional head ache.

You should have seen how absolutly ridiculous AJ and I looked at Chipoltle the next morning staring at our giant burritos that we really had no ability to even begin to bite into. Especially since we where both starving and did not have the ability to eat the night before.

Fortunatly I have a short respite tommorrow before I am back on the job for PWG and ROH. I guess I will see you all there.

Stay Frosty.

08:00 pm - Aftermath
Break Time

Alot has happened since the last entry, damn near too much to fit into an entry and requiring even more energy to recant. SO I give you some random verbage.

- I apologize for those who felt my encounter with Liger was not up to par. I will say that TNA wanted it to be, but circumstances sometimes effect the outcome of everything on the show. I will commit myself to make it up to you the fans in the coming weeks

- How awesome is Showtime Eric Young? More than you can even imagine

- I really wish I could be out in CT for ROH but personal commitments are preventing me & believe me it feels MEGA WEIRD not being at a ROH show. Alas the level of talent in ROH these days I doubt I will be missed.

- Australia F&^%$&% rules.

- Kenta Kobashi, we have to do this again somewhere down the line.

- Dave Batista... Ehh its not even worth it, I hope your opinion of others made you feel better about yourself.

- The Warriors rules, speaking of games hopefully TNA's will be happening soon.


Onward and upward folks. I will see you when I get there.

S. Joe

07:09 pm - More than I can Chew my ass
So today while cooking dinner (Chipoltle Marinated Chicken Breast, Spanish Rice and Caesar salad for inquiring minds), I sat down and started to realize what I had booked for myself in the coming weeks.
So the only question remains, "what the f%$# am I thinking?

Tuesday Sept. 27 TNA Spike TV Tapings
Wednesday Sept. 28 Fly Home

Thursday Sept. 29 Day off

Friday Sept. 30 Red eye to New York
Satuday Oct. 1 ROH in Manhatten

Monday morning Oct.3 Fly home to LA
Monday night Oct. 3 Fly to Australia

Please note that from Oct. 16th up until Oct. 21 I will be officially dead until I need to go rock and roll at the P.P.V.

Now am I looking for sympathy, Hell no I have the best fricken job in the world, but if you happen to come across me and I am less than cordial please be understanding. You know when I book blocks work like this I am happy because I'm making money but I just really hope my body and mind hold out.

Then again

Matthew 36: 33-34
When Seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness- In all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow- for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Sure not from the Hagakure reference but there are many other books I draw inspiration from even the Bible.
OK so translation, "Don't worry about tomorrow for it will take care of itself, there is enough to handle today."

Well wish me luck!

S. Joe

02:20 am - Untapped wonder.
Cars fueled by corn.
Now I am sure the majority of you have heard of this concept before but found it far fetched. In my mind after the recent jump in fuel prices and the long overstayed dependence on middle eastern oil hell, why not? Tonight I have been a bit of an insomniac and was watching The History Channel (My favorite channel btw.) which had an episode of modern marvels on talking about Sugar and its many alternative uses. The main alternative usage which caught my attention was how sugar was being converted into Ethanol which could easily fuel a combustion engine.
In Brazil Ethanol has reduced the countries dependence on foreign oil to around %15. In addition to that it basically slashed the price of fuel in half making it much more affordable. You see after the oil embargo of 73' those wacky Brazilians flooded tons of money into alternative fuel research and came up with Ethanol. Basically you take a sugar bearing crop like corn, sugar cane, and/or sugar beats, process it, and sprinkle in some yeast, ferment, strain and wa laa CAR FUEL! OK OK OK so the process is much more complicated than that, but you have to admit it is much more environmentally friendly than refining crude.
So allow us to recap
We have a fuel that will
-Alleviate reliance on foreign countries oil
-Bolster the US agricultural industry
-Slash fuel prices
-Is environmentally more sound to refine that crude
-Requires no additional money for R&D since brazil already did the brainwork for us.


In all fairness allegedly ethanol makes up %30 of our current fuel supplies but I say that percentage should be way higher.

Bah it's late, and I'm on the verge of going off on a cross political, environmentally sound, opinion laden tirade.

Just some minor food for thought, please if you know some more pros' and cons' feel free to reply as I would like to be educated more on the matter.

Hooray for Bio-fuels!

08:49 pm - The Plan
Well most thought that it was just rhetoric.

"The business is different, the politics are too thick."

Well in a way you re right, but that does not mean I'm not going to try.
This industry began a long time ago and has made a lot on money during its existence.
The premise was simple, an athletic competition between individuals in a attempt to captivate and entertain the masses.

The premise has gone through evolutions ever since, It went from "hooking", to "wrestling", to "wrasslin", to "sports entertainment". Now I have an opportunity to present you my theory, my idea for the next evolution.
I know what I am, I know what I am not, trust me, but I am me.
Who knows if the "mainstream" world will take to what we want to show them, but you better believe I'm going to take the chance and give it  110%.
I hope your along for the ride, or at least ready to watch us roll.

You can call it whatever you want but it is always "wrestling", and thats what we've got for you

Who's coming with me?
