Between The Ropes Wrestling Podcast #5- May 9,2013

We talk to Major League Wrestling’s Owner/Creator and former WWE Creative Writer Court Bauer. In
part two of our intebauerrview with Bauer we discuss why the relationship with The Rock/WWE and why there will be regrets about The Rock’s last WWE run from 2011-Wrestlemania 29. We also discuss what is lacking TNA at this current time. We also get into if there are gays currently in pro wrestling due to the recent announcement of NBA player Jason Collins announcing he is gay and much more.

Here is a snippet of what Bauer had to say about the The Rock and WWE from 2011-Wrestlemania 29:

“I think everyone’s going to look back and have a lot of regrets about this partnership. I don’t think John Cena is anymore over for quote unquote being endorsed by The Rock at all. I don’t think the creative and the booking was at any point really great with The Rock. From day one in 2011 to the last few weeks going into WrestleMania, there was no sparkling great moment ever.

The Latest Injury Update on The Rock

the rockWe had an article yesterday on former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reporting that he had left the New York area where Monday Night Raw was atand headed to Los Angeles. It was also reported that Johnson suffered some type of abdominal injury and didn’t notify anyone in WWE that he had left the area, which caused backstage chaos and forced several re-writes to the show.

We do have an update on the injury to Johnson and wrestling again courtesy of The Wrestling Observer:

As noted earlier, The Rock legitimately suffered torn abdominal and abductor muscles and suffered a hernia during his match with John Cena at WrestleMania 29 last Sunday. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Live that the Rock did in fact notify the company about the injury. It may be a case of a lot of people not knowing what was going on while the show was re-written yesterday, which led to word getting out that he had bolted home without telling anyone.

The Rock immediately flew to Miami yesterday to get the injury checked out. Meltzer noted that the muscle was completely torn off the pelvis, and that it was a bad tear that may require surgery.

If he does need surgery, that would put off filming for his upcoming movie, Hercules, for the time being. The Rock was scheduled to leave shortly to Hungary and Croatia to film the movie, in which he is playing the title role. This is a big deal, as the movie is a major project co-produced by Paramount and MGM with Brett Ratner (The Rush Hour series, Tower Heist) slated to direct. It was scheduled to release during the key summer movie season of 2014. This more than explains the urgency of Rock wanting to get the injury checked out. Rock has been preparing for the role for a while, and has expressed his excitement for the project during several media interviews. There is also another Hercules movie in production, Hercules 3D, that was already planning to beat Ratner’s movie into theatres by five months.

This also will undoubtedly put pressure on The Rock to stop wrestling. The movie studios have big money riding on him with these projects, and there was always the fear of Rock getting injured during a match. Since he started getting lead roles in 2002, he had managed to stay injury free with his matches, which likely put execs at ease. The only injury he had sustained during that time was rupturing his Achilles tendon in 2006, however that was during the filming of The Game Plan and not during a match. Even so, the injury delayed that project.

Obviously WWE fans want to Johnson back in the squared circle. Do you think that happens?
