Former Ecw and WWE wrestler Balls Mahoney passes away at 44 years old

We are saddened to report this morning that former Ecw and WWE wrestler Jonathan Rechner, better known as Balls Mahoney, has passed away.

Rechner had a run in Smokey Mountain Wrestling as Boo Radley before having a brief – but rather infamous – performance in WWF as the evil Xanta Klaus. He found fame and success among wrestling fans when he went to Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling where he wrestled as Balls Mahoney. He would become known for his vicious chairshots and would have brutal matches with the likes of Taz, Masato Tanaka, Lance Storm and Axl Rotten. So violent were his matches with Rotten that the two formed a tag team called The Chair Swinging Freaks, and they feuded with The Dudley Boyz.

Mahoney was brought in by WWE as part of their Ecw revival and he would have feuds with Snitsky, Big Daddy V and The New Breed.

In the WWE, plenty of backstage whispers on the ever-changing women’s division. Kevin Owens is being pulled in two directions, where will the big man land when it’s all said and done? SummerSlam is slowly shaping up with a possible 6-man tag. WWE looks to smash the competition, and finally, first names are no longer safe, just ask King Barrett.

Checking out the company that continues to hang on by a thread, Tna is now changing up how their talent contracts are handled going forward. Also, more talent looks to be heading out, thanks to Hernandez’s contractual mix-up.

Q&A with Alyce Kills Director Jay Lee

Jay Lee may be best known as the director of Zombie Strippers, but he has a new psychological horror movie, Alyce Kills, that is out on DVD next week. We had the opportunity to have Jay take part in our Q&A series and he told us about getting back to psychological horror, working with Jade Dornfeld, and the possibility of us seeing a Zombie Strippers sequel:

Thank you very much for taking the time to talk with us. Alyce Kills is very different from a movie like Zombie Strippers. What made you want to go into this more serious/psychological direction?

Jay Lee: Actually it was the other way around. Alyce Kills is more of a return for me from the detour that was the over-the-top gorefest comedy horror films. The latter was just better business (my prior psychological thriller that actually premiered at Sundance is indeed a

WWE: 6 Non-Attitude Era Events That Cost Linda McMahon The Election

At the Us Elections, Linda McMahon lost her chance at being in the Senate for the second time. This is after the $ 90 million that the McMahons have spent trying to get Linda in office.

A good portion of this was spent in a purge of WWE material from YouTube.

Apparently, this has been done “To better reflect our current family-friendly brand of entertainment, WWE is removing some dated and edgier footage from digital platforms,” WWE said in a statement. However, the real motive was clear when the statement went on to say “Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context of explanation as to when it was produced.” The WWE’s drive to remove this old footage seemed to be attempt sure up Linda’s chances of being in office is similar to their “Stand Up for WWE” campaign of 2 years.

The Master Would Like You to See Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge

A truly terrible motion picture from 1966 that would have been completely unknown today had it not been the subject of a very memorable episode of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” in the Nineties is getting a sequel from a filmmaker who readily admits he began working on it as a dare. Only the hands of fate could insist the world be graced by Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge.

It was about a year-and-a-half ago when word first broke that a sequel to the all-time bad movie not-so-classic Manos: The Hands of Fate was in the works. It had been so long since there was any news about the project, I, like many of you I suspect, assumed that someone had come to their senses. Fangoria provides information that proves otherwise.

Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge writer/director Rupert Talbot Munch, Sr. (who will also play “Torgo” in his film

Are We Ready for a 'Manos: The Hands of Fate' Sequel?

Are We Ready for a 'Manos:  The Hands of Fate' Sequel?
Sitting in the number eight position on imdb's Bottom 100, with more user votes than any other film in the final ten, sits the Texas-born oddity Manos: The Hands of Fate, a "thriller" about a vacationing family who run afoul of Manos-worshipping pagans. If you've been wondering if we'd ever get to return to the delightful universe of Manos and its infamous knock-kneed manservant Torgo, well, you're in luck! Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge is expected to shoot in 2011, according to Dread Central.

It's been a long time since the original film was dragged into the harsh light of day by the crew at Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (which they've cited as the Gold Standard for painfully unwatchable films), but it sounds like producer Rupert Munch Sr. is approaching this follow-up as legitimately as possible. The official synopsis from the website TorgoLives.com dishes out the plot, "a woman battling

The Hands of Fate Deal Manos an Unlikely Sequel Starring Former WWE Grappler Gene Snitsky

"A sequel to 'Manos: The Hands of Fate' is in the works" probably ranks as one of the top three sentences I never ever thought I would find myself writing. Yet, here I am reporting the unbelievable news that a sequel to one of the worst movies ever made, a movie that probably would have been completely forgotten today were it not immortalized by 'Mystery Science Theater 3000', is getting sequelized 45 years after the fact.

Made in 1966 by an El Paso, Texas fertilizer salesman with zero film experience, zero budget, and a cast comprised primarily of everyday citizens, Manos: The Hands of Fate is hands down one of the most insufferably awful things ever composed to film, and because of that it has become a cult classic amongst bad movie fans. The original exercise in excessive tedium dealt with a family that gets lost on a trip and
