"As for the theory that ‘Smart Marks’ (what is a smart mark?) have a detrimental affect on the wrestling industry, I do not believe that either. Surely, a smart mark is no different to an amateur theatre critic or an amateur music critic. They have there own opinions that people read and then forget about." - WrestlingDatabase on the Internet in UK wrestling (UK Forum)

*WWE News*

 

Jeff Hardy worked the Impact Championship Wrestling TV taping on 5/24 in Indian Land, SC. He wrestled as Willow the Wisp, a character he used before entering WWE. Hardy faced Krazy K, the OMEGA Cruiserweight Champion. Krazy K was victorious, but after the match, Hardy hit a Swanton Bomb.

 

Goldberg will not be flying over to the UK for the Insurrexion PPV or the accompanying house show in Nottingham. Stars who are scheduled to appear include Eric Bischoff, Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Ric Flair, Rob Van Dam, Kane, La Resistance, Chris Jericho, Val Venis, Scott Steiner, Stacy Keibler, Booker T, Christian, Dudley Boyz, Goldust, Trish Stratus and the Hurricane.

 

WWE has stopped bringing the entire creative team to TV tapings as a cost cutting measure. Only Brian Gerwirtz and Stephanie McMahon are now appearing at the tapings. In the past, the entire team was flown in to every taping.

 

Lita has started working in OVW as she rehabs and gets ready for a WWE return.

 

WWE.com reports that Nathan Jones chipped a bone in his elbow two weeks ago preparing for the May 13th Smackdown. He has had the chip removed and is expected back in a few weeks.

 

As was said this week on Raw, Stone Cold Steve Austin will be giving away the Bad Blood Pay Per View to the troops of the USA for free.

 

The APA is scheduled to return to the active WWE roster on Smackdown next week. No word on how they will explain Bradshaw's move from the Raw brand.

 

A New York City radio station today promoted an appearance by Ultimo Dragon on the 6/24 WWE show. They are calling this appearance his WWE debut. The show is a Smackdown television taping. Most have stated that Dragon should be put on the Smackdown brand so he can work in WWE's cruiserweight division.

 

Right now, WWE is likely to bring Kurt Angle back as a face. The company has been debating whether to bring him back as a heel or face. Kurt is tentatively scheduled to return next week.

 

WWE has signed former WCW wrestler Horshu. The signing was announced at the UPW show last night in California.

 

*NWA: TNA News*

 

On this weeks NWA: TNA PPV, Raven had a long promo segment with Jeff Jarrett where he was not his usual self on the mic, and later had a match with Glen Gilberti, where Gilberti pinned Raven with help from Vince Russo. Apparently Raven actually had a minor concussion, which he suffered the night before at a show in Oldcastle, ON. Raven asked for the night off, but Jeff Jarrett refused, telling Raven to "suck it up". Jarrett reportedly believed that Raven was trying to get out of doing a job to Gilberti. Raven’s injury is being pointed to as the reason the main event wasn't as crisp as it could have been, as Gilberti was taking it easier on Raven because of the concussion.

 

Low Ki will likely be out for two months with a dislocated collarbone.

 

This week’s PPV results:

A.J Styles & D Lo Brown beat CM Punk & Jason Cross

BG James & Konnan pinned Sandman and Sonny Siaki

The US Indy scene is loaded with so many workers that quite often some amazing wrestlers are looked over by the big promotions. Christopher Daniels is one of these guys. Despite spending a decade in the business, and having worked for WWE, WCW, ECW and a ridiculous amount of indy promotions in the US and Japan, The Fallen Angel still isn’t a well known name with casual wrestling fans. There are few who play a heel better than Christopher Daniels, and it’s no surprise to see that he’s held his fair share of gold during the years he’s been wrestling.

 

Last year, Daniels managed to make it to number 57 in the PWI 500, showing that his talents have been recognised. Even if you’ve never seen The Fallen Angel working for Ring Of Honour, NWA:TNA or in Japan, you might be able to cast your mind back to the later days of WCW. During Vampiro’s “Higher Power” angle, Christopher was due to be given his big break at the Canadian’s cloaked master. However, the angle was dropped, and Daniels continued to be underused in WCW. One of the most memorable moments towards the end of WCW’s run was the Michael Modest Vs Chris Daniels match, which featured about 10 minutes of top class wrestling before a Scott Steiner run in ruined things. Before all of this though, Daniels was a superstar on the Indy circuit, even winning the highly acclaimed King Of The Indies crown in 2000. As with many indy workers, Daniels was a regular on WWE recap shows such as Metal or Shotgun, as he jobbed to workers who didn’t have an eighth of the talent that The Fallen Angel posses.

 

In Japan, Daniels is well known, but could probably walk down the street in broad daylight and not be approached by a wrestling fan. Christopher Daniels uses a different gimmick in Japan, decked out in a yellow mask and suit, he calls himself Curry Man, the spiciest wrestler in the world. Shaking off the Wrestlecrap-like gimmick, Daniels is still able to put on some great matches with other top class juniors.

 

These days, you’re most likely to find Christopher in Ring Of Honour or NWA:TNA. Only in these cult promotions is the Californian really appreciated, as he’s one of the biggest draws in each promotion. Due to his fantastic heel act, and the fact that he hates shaking hands with opponents (As is the rules in RoH), there are few wrestlers who could get booed quite as loudly as Daniels.

 

In his early thirties now, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see Christopher Daniels in WWE nowadays. But that doesn’t stop fans of high quality wrestling enjoying The Fallen Angel putting on great matches every time he steps into the ring.

 

Recommended Christopher Daniels Matches-

 

Christopher Daniels Vs Jerry Lynn and Amazing Red (NWA:TNA 7/05/03)

Christopher Daniels Vs American Dragon, Chris Daniels Vs Low Ki (RoH 30/3/02)

Curry Man, Tiger Mask, Minoru Tanaka and Jushin “Thunder” Liger Vs AKIRA, Black Tiger, Koji Kanemoto and Gedo (NJPW 7/6/02)
