Bobby Fish recently heaped a heavy dose of praise on Triple H—a statement that got him in hot water with some fans; he stated publicly that he would indeed go to war for the new head of creative at WWE (paraphrased). This title being given to Triple H after his father-in-law, Vince McMahon retired officially. He of course has many other duties at the top of WWE.
Of course there are those that have suggested that Vince still has his hand in some of the decision-making that goes down behind the scenes at WWE…of course we cannot deny or confirm those bits of conjecture at this time. But the general consensus would is to think: How can they not talk about the business over family dinner? Right?
Anyways, yet another person who is extremely happy with the new creative direction is in fact a man we haven’t exactly seen on TV as of late, none other than Happy Corbin.
It was as he spoke on the Johnny Dare Morning Show that he had the following statements to make:
“He thrived during the Attitude Era … I think he’s bringing some of that attitude and pushing the envelope, and bringing the aggressiveness back to WWE, and I think it’s an awesome thing…He wants to keep the entertainment as well, that’s the art, the art is to stay entertaining…
I am not just a big bad guy that’s tough and beats everybody up, how can we do it and be entertaining, and funny, and witty? But then, also you want people to be in the audience and go, ‘Dude, I want nothing to do with that guy in an alleyway.’ …
It’s an art, and I think Triple H is one of the absolute best at that because I think he helped create that…It’s pretty awesome to have him putting his touch on a lot of things and really giving us some stuff that’s different … I think it’s getting people excited, and it’s really helping it thrive again, and being back in front of people and all of that, it’s special right now.”Wrestling Inc.

Minoru Suzuki at IWS in Montreal
IWS is not unknown to fans of independent pro wrestling. Many sensational Canadian stars and veterans of the sport have passed through their walls. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, PCO, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, and that list goes on and on. Once again I don’t omit anyone out of disrespect, but rather for the sake of brevity. The pro wrestling industry never sleeps.
I will mention Jeremy Prophet and Jessika Neri, who are currently in Atlanta at the Nightmare Factory and were at Dynamite Toronto this past week in matches for Dark: Elevation. They too have had epic battles wrestling for IWS.
And it is to that list that can now be added one of the greatest Japanese wrestlers to ever lace up a pair of boots: None other than Minoru Suzuki. Minoru Suzuki would defeat Kevin Blanchard in his first Canadian bout.
