Now here’s somebody who can sing AND dance :D — Michael Cole, WWE Raw May 5th, 2013
Surprising No One, Jay Briscoe Is Homophobic
After a gay marriage bill passed in Delaware, the ROH World Champion tweeted the above messages. A back handed compliment showing his true homophobic roots.
This isn’t the first time he has done so, either. After same sex marriage was legalized in New York, Jay Briscoe tweeted the following:
“Damn theres a lot of fags out in New York today #WhatTheFuck”
The tweet has since been deleted.
Could never get behind the Briscoes simply because of their confederate flag merch/look. Color me un-surprised.
themondaynightwars asked: The Wrestling Road Diaries 2 has finished filming I believe!
YES! I feel like every week Colt just says something like, “we’re working on it, guys!” which feels like that means, “It’s never gonna happen, guys!”
Thanks for the tip, I can’t wait to get it.

Colt Cabana is kind of a marketing genius. This isn’t exactly new information, but let’s specifically talk about The Wrestling Road Diaries.
I’ve been a touring musician for about 7 years now. Definitely not in any full time manner, but I’ve been on the road plenty. Mary and I watched The Road Diaries last summer, and it was an amazing experience. I don’t know how often the allusion is made, but independent professionally wrestling is so similar to being in a nobody-touring-band it’s scary. Each scene of them on the road could have seriously been any tour by a band ever.
I really hope more of these start to happen. I’ve never actually been too huge on tour documentaries for bands, but I know a lot of people are. This is something I really wish I could see more of. Heck, even WWE could get on this wagon. I know they love their official documentaries and stuff, but I really think if they just took three months of life on the road with a couple semi-big guys (it wouldn’t have to be anything crazy like Cena), they could tap into a market. Plus, I’m sure for a company like that it would be a really easy/cheap film to produce.
Anyway, yeah, if you haven’t already, check out The Wrestling Road Diaries, obviously. And start a band and go on tour.
