Audio: Running The Ropes 4/13/12 Archived

This week, Brian and Chris go over some eventful news, including Scott Steiner's incoherent Twitter ranting, the Bella Twins possibly leaving the WWE at the end of the month, Scott Hall's latest arrest, rumors of Sable joining the WWE Hall of Fame next year, former Tough Enough contestant AJ Kirsch crossing paths at the Cauliflower Alley Club event in Las Vegas, Dean Ambrose calling out Mick Foley for "screwing up professional wrestling", and Rikishi being snubbed from last week's Smackdown.

In the second hour, The guys talk about Brock Lesnar being the new face of the WWE on Raw after giving John Cena a bloody mouth. On Smackdown, the "Blast from the Past" might not have been the blast we were expecting. Though you did have Daniel Bryan and AJ on Piper's Pit. Also, while the guys give their picks for TNA Lockdown this coming Sunday, Magnus gets in Brian's cross-hairs and Brian needs to get it off his chest. All this and more on Running The Ropes, on the Unchained Wrestling Network, the SNS Radio Network, and KJCC Real Campus Radio.

Scott Steiner Comments On Hulk Hogan Saying Bobby Roode Was Not Ready For World Title

Scott Steiner tweeted the following:

When i look at hogan i see the same thing as the nielson ratings system does .......low fuckn ratings

Hogan also attackd Bobby Roode on the radio b4 he was going to wrestle Kurt Angle

In Philli on ppv sayn Roode wasnt ready,Ive wrestled Bobby a bunch of times n he wrestles hard every nite n he can go

He can talk,wrestle and looks good,and hes proving that hogan doesnt know shit(except that garrett is the future)..WTF

At the ppv he was pissd n went up to Pritchard and told him he was going on the radio and calling hogan out

And Pritchard beggd him not to,so i see him n he tells me what happend,I told him thats whats hogan does,

In WCW hogan put his thumb on evrybody,deciding who wins in every match bcuz he has creative control in his contract

Hogan shows up and changes the outcome of his match,Bobby was going to kill him but he kept his cool

Every tv every ppv the place is zoo a circus bcuz these assholes change things every hour,the storylines are stupid and dont make sense

And when u ask questions they cant give u a reason why they want u to do something that doesnt make sense

And since hogan bitchoff n pritchard brought the chaos the circus to Tna they also brought their own clown,midget

Which is Jason Hervey,(yep that one)the insignicant bro in wonder years this 5'5" midget walks around

Fn crazy,why is he there hes business partners with bitchoff just like hogan n bitchoff are business partners

Now do u know why Tna is the titanic and is sinking fast.....Need to save TNA

They are doin the same stupid bullshit that they did in WCW..except now instead of pushing Flairs son David

To the point where he beat Chris Benoit,he is now pushing his own son,where is David Flair today

Ive seen all this shit b4,Remember he made David Arquette champion,Fuck!!Ted Turner ownd WCW and they ran it into the ground

And he was a multi multi BILLIONAIRE

We were all in the back sayin WTF are we in the twilight zone ....fn crazy

That same wkend he was suppose to go on ESPN and promote the ppv,so he is on the show

And the host ask him whats his most embarassing monent in the ring..remember hes there to promote the ppv

He says wrestling Andre and he shits himself...the host asks him a couple more questions

Which i dont remember bcuz im on the floor belly laughing..then the host thanks him for bn on the show

And he says "Be COOL EAT FRUIT...thats right BE COOL EAT FRUIT...WTF way to promote the ppv DUMBASS
