Former ECW champ Justin Credible posted a new blog at

Credible discusses Monday’s WWE Raw, Triple H and Randy Orton among other topics. Former ECW star Tony DeVito is the special guest on Justin Credible’s Pro Wrestling 101 video series.

Justin Credible excerpt: “WWE Raw continues to establish Triple H and Randy Orton as the top heels in the company. I liked the opening segment with Triple H and Steph really cementing their roles as heels. Triple H then set up Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show for the main event. Fast forward the Shield triple powerbomb Bryan while Show watched. Triple H then ordered Show to knock out Bryan, and after much deliberation, he did. Fans reacted with a ‘you sold out’ chant, and Show left with Triple H and Steph. Then we saw the 7-foot Big Show cry like a little b----. All jabs aside, I liked it, and Show did a very good job selling his emotions.”

•  Sign of the Times

Former ECW personality Lou D’Angeli (Sign Guy Dudley and Lou E. Dangerously) recently participated in a Q&A with

D’Angeli discussed a number of topics from if he is a Paul Heyman guy to his thoughts on John Cena, the Attitude Era, ECW, WWE, TNA and more.

Here are some highlights:

Are you a Paul Heyman guy?

D’Angeli: “One hundred percent…I am also a Tommy Dreamer guy….a Raven guy….and a Taz guy….without the four of them, I would have never caught a break in the wrestling business.”

What are your thoughts about John Cena?

D’Angeli: “John is a great guy. Having worked with him in WWE, I know first-hand what he does for that company and the dedication and drive he has to get it done. His contributions to Make-A-Wish are second to none. I can honestly say Cena is the perfect role-model in the business right now.”

When you think back. How much of WWE’s Attitude Era is owed to what you guys were already doing in ECW?

D’Angeli: “A lot of it, and due to the popularity of shoot interviews, etc. It’s a fact and not a theory you know. People saw what we were doing and brought it to national TV before we could. The Attitude Era for WWE was insanely popular obviously and given they still continue to bring some of the main-event guys from that time back into the fold now, they must feel the same way.”
