Just watched Ivory's shoot interview (the new one) and she talks about wrestlers court in the WWE locker room. She mentions an occassion where Triple H was the judge and Val Venis taking the WWE Divas to wrestlers court because he said the Divas losing a game of dodgeball to the Diva Search women made the current roster look bad as athletes, and Ivory was the lawyor for the WWE Divas. Completely mental, but thats how things go in there. Apparently Undertaker is usually the judge, but Triple H took this case on. She also mentioned you could sway the decision if you bought the judge a present!

 

Anyone else heard any stories of this tradition in WWF/WWE?

The only one ive ever really heard was TEAM 3D took Sheik abdul bashir to wrestlers court, and made him buy a case of beer. (That was in TNA and aparently not 100% serious like some others had aparently been.)

 

Bar that i'd heard alot of stuff about JBL, Benoit and a few other "old schoolers" taking people to wrestlers court........did one of those end up with jamie knoble doing 1000 squats until he pissed blood? Or have i got that confussed with another story?

 

Also doesnt paul london mention he was asked to attend a wrestlers court once in WWE? I cant remeber what he says of the outcome other than he thought the whole thing was rather stupid!

I believe it's in the London and Kendrick shoot - London talks about being woken up in the small hours of the morning to attend a wrestler's court and comes across as being rather aggrieved that his rest was disrupted for such trivial nonsense. Which is fair enough, it does sound like childish bollocks - the sort of thing wrestlers would do if they were freemasons or some guff

This is one that a WWE guy told me that I've not seen or heard mentioned elsewhere, and it sounds insane.

 

Spring/Summer 2005 in an early bout on a house show card a fairly new guy on the roster was working as a heel did the frogsplash. Apparently Eddie Guerrero was fuming about it as he was in the main event, and felt his move wouldn't get over with the crowd since they'd seen it already by the newbie.

 

At the hotel that night they held a wrestlers court on the roof of the skyscarper tall building. I honestly can't remember the "sentence", but apparently the guy was so scared he genuinely thought there was a chance he was gonna get thrown off the roof.

 

This might sound mental and unrealistic, but if you put it in context of being manhandled from your hotel room and dragged to roof of a skyscraper you can appreciate the concern! The story was told to me and other guys who happened to be ex WWE, and 1 of them was nodding acknowledging that it rang a bell, and at the end he verified that he'd been told about it.

 

Definitely not much of a "laugh" for the defendent!

The London/Kendrick shoot story was about Melina being in wrestler's court for something or other, and all the wrestlers betting on how long it'd take her to cry (crying must be her backstage gimmick as well).

 

The Hardy Boyz book had a story about them being in wrestler's court for taking Kane's first-class seat on a plane once. They'd just won the tag belts and Michael Hayes told them to do it, or something.

That's moronic. His move doesn't need to "get over," he's Eddie fucking Guerrero. Some newbie does a frog splash in an opener, whoopie-di-doo. I might think "thats good" but I won't care half as much as when Eddie does it. Just like a superkick performed by any other wrestler in North America matters about a tenth as much as when Shawn Michaels does it.

I must say, some rituals in Pro Wrestling seem absurd. Seems to be too much emphasis on 'paying your dues', it smacks of small man syndrome in a way. Because it isn't a 'competitive sport', some feel the need to legitimise themselves 24/.

Any knowledge of this happening this side of the Atlantic?

It's completely understandable. You just wouldn't use someone's finishing move without permission. The whole wrestler's court thing is a bit juvenile but that's to be expected. They are American, they all think they're frat boys or something. Do they ever grow up? I'm sure Vinny Mac would rather have them playing Judge Judy in hotel rooms rather than strangling ring rats or stabbing each other with scissors and squeegees.
