SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
-Jeff Jarrett was the honorary Twelfth Titan on the field tonight during the Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars NFL game. He stood mid-field with a ceremonial sword and then held up a WWE Smackdown t-shirt at which point the Fox announcer, Joe Buck, mentioned that WWE Smackdown is coming to Fox on Oct. 4, 2019. He held up a Smackdown t-shirt and referred to as a “WWE Hall of Famers, Double J.” He also joked that Troy Aikman would be providing commentary on Smackdown. They laughed and he admitted it wasn’t true. Earlier this week when the Jaguars played on Sunday, Cody Rhodes and his wife Brandi were in the Jaguars’ owner’s suite on Sunday, fueling the buzz about a big-money-backed All Elite Wrestling venture involving Jaguars ownership.

-Wendi Richter discussed with Sean Mooney on his latest “Prime Time” podcast the “original screw job” in 1985 when she lost the WWE Women’s Title without being in on the finish. Richter said she didn’t know Spider Lady was going to be Moolah until that day, and she thought something was up. She said she called Cindy Lauper to ask about it, but Cindy didn’t know about the match “and I thought that was strange.” She said it was arranged where the referee gave her a fast count “and that was that.” She said that hurt her. She said that was the last time she ever saw her. She said Moolah didn’t say anything after that to her. He said she stomped out of the ring and looked for Vince Mcmahon, but he was nowhere to be found. “I left in my wrestling suit and went to the airport and that’s the last communication I had wit the WWF,” she said. When they contacted her about doing a battle royal recently, she asked if Moolah would be in it. “She was already dead and gone to hell, so I never got to wrestle her again.” Richter said Fabulous Moolah used her “like Elvis Presley’s manager.” She said Moolah took 25 percent of her pay at times and sometimes she didn’t even know what she was making. She said Moolah would lie to promoters that she was booked when she wasn’t when promoters would call about her availability. She said Moolah was a hateful person and talked about people in ways she had never been around with a level of cussing she had never heard before. “She was an evil person and I didn’t ever want to be around her.” LISTEN TO YOU TUBE CLIP HERE or FULL EPISODE ON APPLE PODCASTS
