Providence, Rhode Island - On April 18Th 2010, the 5TH Annual
New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame Induction ceremony held its
second annual dinner banquet. The New England PWHOF honored
twenty international wrestling superstars and personalities for
their impact on the professional wrestling in and around New
England. Kenny Casanova was inducted for the class of 2010.

meet-and-greet autograph signing took place to hype up the
fans for the next day. Vendor guests included Justin Credible,
Brian Clarke (Adam Bomb), Rick Martel, Antonio Thomas, Matt
Bourne (Doink The Clown), and Barbie Menegan. Fans were also
pleasantly surprised to see Mick Foley do an unannounced drop by
run-in. On Sunday, the Fan Fest meet-and-great was extended.
Highlights for fans included pictures and signings with "The Living
Legend" Larry Zbysco, Danny Davis, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Ox Baker,
Melissa Coates, Lushious Latasha, Kenny Dykstra, and Japanese
sensation Shockwave The Robot who was added special to the Sunday
line up. There was also plenty of food for everyone, on the house.
(Mmm... Delicious premium calzones! The Philly steak and cheese
calzone was scrumptious!)

* John Cena Sr. received The 2010 Manager of The Year Award.
* Robbie Ellis received The 2010 Life Time achievement award
* Tim White received The 2010 "New England Icon" Award
Kenny Casanova was
inducted by referee and long time friend, Hotbod Todd Taylor. Taylor
roasted Kenny for being a big mark for the business. He cited
several ridiculous quick antidotes including Kenny being kicked out
of several WWF locker rooms for his shenanigans by Tony Garea and
fellow inductee Referee Tim White, as well as scrambling to pick up
"Golddust" Mylar chips from an arena floor.
walked up to what was a rather tame induction to a chant of, "SING!
SING! SING!" and decided to turn it up a notch. "The Love Boat"
television theme kicked in and Kenny gave the audience what they
wanted. He lap danced and serenaded Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka and
Lobsterman, then moved towards Larry Zbysco, who sold it hard and
ran out the door! Kenny thanked the late Captain Lou Albano for
giving him his first opportunity in the business and also thanked
Superfly Snuka for singing inappropriate blues songs with him in
several locker rooms before shows.
Kenny also mentioned how as a baby, he
had won a beauty contest where the Pennsylvanian town had dubbed
him, "The Duke of Carlisle." Kenny recalled asking his mother
at his first live wrestling event if Pete Doherty, who was also
known as "The Duke of Dorchester," perhaps had won a beauty contest,
but then confided that, "after seeing Pete Doherty here today, ...I
now know the answer."
Kenny Casanova finally
thanked Mike Sparta for booking him on many occasions in New England
with WWA wrestling, he thanked Maria and Buttery Bert, then thanked
the New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame and Joe Bruen for the
Recognizing all of New
England and the entire east coast, Hall of Fame Commissioner Joe
Bruen created the venue because he wanted to recognize North East
professional wrestling talent in a public forum for the impact they
have had in the area, over the years. "There hasn’t ever been proper
recognition for local wrestlers and might have never been," said
Bruen, who himself is a former ring announcer, as well as
manager, booker, and promoter.
Again, in his own public
forum, Kenny Casanova thanks Joe Bruen for the call.
DOG RUDY -
Here is Kenny's hairless Chinese Crested dog, Rudy. They only have
hair on the head tail and feet.
R.I.P. CAPTAIN LOU ALBANO,
man who gave Kenny Casanova his start...
In 1988, Kenny Casanova, still a junior at Vestal High School, was
approached by some herb in home-room, whose mother worked for the
M.S. Foundation. The deal was that CAPTAIN LOU ALBANO was running a
fund-raising wrestling show to benefit M.S. and that if her son
found a few guys to sell tickets, they would get to have dinner with
Realizing that you have
to start somewhere and that M.S. also was a great cause, The Prince
of Passion jumped at the chance and actually had a hand in helping
to promote his first show.
After the show had
finished, just as promised, a wide-eyed Casanova was led into a
banquet room, where he saw Rocky Johnson, Tony Atlas, Misty Blue,
The Wild Samoans, Sgt. Slaughter, a young Samu & Fatu, and Col.
DeBeers. He was then seated, next to a grateful CAPT LOU, and they
feasted on chicken wings.
After Casanova asked
"The Capper" about managing, Lou ate the cartilage off of a bone and
said, "...Son...It's tough...Just like promoting a show, by plugging
it everywhere...as cheap as possible, (gulp)...you gotta promote
your wrestlers and promote yourself...but most importantly...you
gotta win matches at all costs...and ride your wrestlers coat-tails
to the top...Pass the Blue-Cheese..."
"Uggggggggggggghhh...You eat the chicken-knuckle?!?!"
The founding father of The Rock N Wrestling Connection admitted,
"Of course!!! (swallow)...THAT'S THE BEST PART!"
I will never forget The
Wrestling Album, one of my first tape cassettes. It came on what
almost looked like a sleeve of a record. I listened to Captain Lou's
"History of Music" probably a million times... I also loved his work
with The WIld Samoans & George The Animal Steele in the ring...
"Good bye, Captain Lou.
I have fond memories of you," - Kenny Casanova

The Famous Kenny's
Casanova Conspiracy Theory Internet Rib...
IS EDDIE GUERRERO DEAD?
Back after Eddie Guerrero
passed away, Kenny noticed that some wacky fans were treating the death
like another Elvis, or Tupac situation. Therefore, to play a joke on the
marks, below is a blog that Kenny wrote totally to confuse people. He
spent a few hours researching and collecting dome arguments, and also
added some fuel to the fire himself. Then, he released a blog that was
all over the messageboards... all to increase web traffic to this site.
For a period of time, this article
became a huge conspiracy theory that changed people's minds, angered
some, and made many believe that Eddie's death was a staged storyline by
Vince McMahon and The WWF. Right after this blog's release,
www.KennyCasanova.com had so
many hits, the server crashed!
Here it is!
>>IS EDDIE GUERRERO DEAD?
By Kenny Casanova from www.KennyCasanova.com
firstname.lastname@example.org - 02-24-06
Ok… Now some people will want to beat me for saying this, but I find
myself asking a question that isn’t appropriate in any light. However,
it feels like WWE is booking something that doesn’t seem possible and I
have found myself asking myself a silly question whenever I turn on WWE.
…Is Eddie Guerrero still alive?
My feeling is other people have suspected this, but no one has the
pistachios to come out and say it. So here I go; Eddie Guerrero’s death
could all be a big super smart angle for a return at Wrestlemania.
My brother-in-law is not a wrestling fan, but comes over to eat wings
when we get PPVs. He saw some of what was going on with Rey Mysterio and
wanted to know if Eddie was still alive. Whether fans want to say it or
not, recent WWE storylines are making it seem like Eddie Guerrero’s
death HAS BEEN BOOKED BY A PROMOTER.
Why would Vince McMahon want to go there? Why would a global megalithic
corporation like WWE want to fake the death of one of its superstar
performers, risking the possible backlash that would occur from
worldwide media and its fans? SIMPLE… WWE figured out this formula a
long time ago…Bad publicity is good publicity.
In a day when it is impossible to fool the fans due to the widely used
lighting quick communication resource called the Internet, the WWE knows
that “strategic leaks” are the only way you can really throw off the
modern wrestling fan and subsequently create interest. Recent examples
of this have shown that there is money to be made from false leaks if it
is done correctly.
The Edge & Hardy scandal was amplified, exploited and leaked, then
turned into a moneymaker (though it was too bad Matt Hardy botched his
return promo)… Chris Jericho puts up a TNA logo on his site to keep
interest on him. Go back a few years and you will see other examples.
Brian Pillman convinced WCW to break his contract so his crazy gimmick
looked legit to anyone who might do the research (only to jump to WWF.)
Vince Russo drops false rumors on the Internet to throw fans off to
create more shock when storylines go the other way. Austin amplifies his
hatred toward Eric Bischoff in an ECW stint to get sympathy from the
crowd and to push the envelope of boss-hating.
Good wrestling promoters have a history of twisting the truth to make
the most believable storylines going (i.e. Road Warrior Hawk drunk
angle, Bret got screwed angle, N.W.O. and other various invasion plots
etc…) The promoters even work the wrestlers to get the leaks that they
want these days and visa-versa.
There is so much foreshadowing going on that makes me think WWE is
planning an “Eddie Return.” I know that odds of this are slim, and that
this blog will be looked at as a big conspiracy theory. I agree with you
and it is wrong to say it. But it would be even more wrong if they did
it. What if Eddie’s death was a work? If it is, it is the greatest and,
at the same time, the rudest work of all time.
I have asked a number of people in the business what they think about
this and they say all about the same thing. “You are crazy,” or “I think
that would be too F’ed up,” but after I drop a few little bombs on them
that have made me wonder, they have wondered too.
The last time Eddie was on television, Ken Kennedy had hit him in the
head with a chair. After the match, there was a promo with Batista. His
head was all bandaged up and Batista was concerned. The last words Eddie
said were, “Don’t worry about me, I am going to be alright.” This
footage might be revisited if this is a big rude angle.
At the Eddie Guerrero Press Conference, Vince McMahon and Chavo Guerrero
seemed to me to have too much composure. At the time when I watched it,
I figured to myself, “Wow, Chavo is doing such a great job.” He didn’t
seem sad and I figured if it were me, I would have been bawling my eyes
out. I wondered why at the time and then resolved that it must just be
he knew this day would eventually come, or maybe they were not as close
as he had always told everyone. I look back now and wonder if this is a
work, did Chavo think it wasn’t going to work.
Either there was and still is a lot of bad taste going on, or Eddie is
still alive. Vince McMahon is a bastard, but grilling Eddie’s wife
Vickie, a day or so after his death on live TV?!? How does someone even
approach the option? How can you ask a widow to appear on TV when her
husband isn’t even in the ground yet? Does WWE have no respect for dead
people and mourning? Or did Vickie just get off the phone with a
clean-shaven bald-headed Eddie Guerrero who is camping out in Jamaica?
Well if Eddie is alive and hiding out, how could this secret have lasted
for four months? My guess is, if this is a work, the lockerroom could
still be partially kayfabed to cut down possible leaks. And moreover,
Eddie is probably just camping out, or maybe getting some kind of
surgery somewhere and is indeed out of the public eye.
The WWE Raw & Smackdown Tribute shows seemed to contrived. While some of
the wrestlers seemed very upset and concerned, others seemed like they
needed to play to the camera. Now it is impossible to speculate (if this
is a work) who knew and who did not know at the time of these shows. It
is possible that only a tight group of people actually know the truth
and might not have known the truth at the time of filming. I would
suspect some (like Benoit) were informed immediately after the shooting
with Eddie calling them. But even at that, Rey Mysterio did not seem
moved at all. Mysterio taking off his mask seemed like the cliché “let’s
make this look real” thing to do.
The tribute shows had a tinge of ******** to them. The commentators on
both shows said, “Eddie would have wanted this,” about a hundred times
to validate what seemed like a moneymaker. This could be foreshadowing
Vince blaming a return angle on Eddie, to keep the heat off of him in
It is fact that most wrestlers have never been great actors, and the few
who are have usually moved on to bigger and better the things. At the
tribute shows, there was definitely a vibe of bad acting going on, which
to me smells like a work. But were the wrestlers working the fans due to
a future storyline, or because they felt obligated to be teary-eyed and
One theory on the bad-acting vibe is maybe the wrestlers thought that
they should be crying but were not, so they tried to. Seemed like some
of the wrestlers were forcing themselves to cry because they thought
that is what they should do in this situation, but the tears just were
not turning on …It is possible that forced tears is the product of a
desensitization to wrestler deaths –seeing how there have been so many.
HOWEVER, forced tears could also be the product of the bad acting that
goes along with another storyline.
I am sure that WWE knows how big the next-night ratings were when
Pillman passed away and also Owen Hart. But they never had TWO tribute
shows, due to a death in the family, nor has any death lasted as long
with so much TV time and recognition as this one has.
WWE has referenced Eddie’s death NUMEROUS times every single show. It
has continuously reminded the fans by armbands on Chavo (on Raw) and Rey
Mysterio (on Smackdown) that Eddie Guerrero is no longer with us. Either
this is a super sign of respect for the dead and the WWE has finally got
it and learned that life is valuable and we should not forget, or (gulp)
…it means something else, something I hate to even think of.
It means we need to remember Eddie’s death, for a big twist ending at
Wrestlemania that rivals pop culture’s desire for twist endings (i.e.
Fight Club & Saw). It means that WWE knows people think Tupac is still
alive and have figured out how to make money off of people’s inabilities
to let go of loved ones.
Eddie Guerrero’s book is ironically titled “Cheating Death.”
With a widespread headline death like this one, it seems odd that there
isn’t much out there to validate it. Findagrave.com has Owen Hart’s
tombstone, but there is only a picture of the cemetery that Eddie is
supposed to be in. The Smoking Gun has no documents at this time,
relating to his death, though documents would not necessarily prove
anything anyhow. I also cannot find any evidence that a life insurance
check has been cashed.
The funeral was private with only a few dozen or so family and friends.
The list of people are all related to the wrestling business. The
funeral itself was ministered by SUPERSTAR BILLY GRAHAM - another
Foreshadowing was light in the first few months, but now it is seemingly
becoming more heavy with Benoit now joining Chavo and Mysterio using
signature Eddie moves. If you watch and think about how foreshadowing
could be a possibility, you will see why I am writing this right now, be
it reluctant or not.
Current WWE programming has incorporated the entire Eddie Guerrero death
into a storyline that is involving his wife, his best friends, and his
nephew. One reason that makes me subscribe to this conspiracy theory is
that these people would NOT want a part of this. Another reason I am in
quandary is that I cannot understand how a writer for Smackdown can
approach someone and even ask them to say “Eddie is not up there in
heaven Rey, he is down there (in hell.)” With Eddie being a religious
man, I would gather this would not bode well around those who loved him.
MORE FORESHADOWING… At No Way Out, they spent so much seemingly
unnecessary time on Rey Mysterio when the match was over that WWE has to
be planning something big. At No Way Out, Rey Mysterio lost his
Wrestlemania spot to Randy Orton. He is mortified that he “let Eddie
down” and lingers in the ring forever. Then he walks down a line of
wrestlers in sorrow.
Rey supposedly dedicated his Royal Rumble match win to Eddie. He has now
lost his Wrestlemania spot and this sets up a much-needed climax for a
big finish at what WWE considers their biggest event of any year. A
typical storyline in literature places a hero in must-win situation to
avenge the dead, and all fingers should have been pointing at Rey to win
at Wrestlemania. Now, they could still book this, with Teddy Long coming
out on the next Smackdown and saying that Orton will have to now take on
Rey as well in a three way at Wrestlemania, due to the fact that he held
the ropes during the pin. However, another way to book this comes to
mind as well.
Imagine Wrestlemania. A Rey Mysterio run-in fails and Randy Orton is
beating the crap out of him in front of Vickie Guerrero (who is sitting
at ringside collecting an appearance check.) Eddie out of nowhere jumps
the fence, knocks out Orton. Rey looks up in disbelief. The audience is
stunned. The next night on RAW… “I liiiiiied!”
It just seems likely that if Vince McMahon wanted to pick one wrestler
to pull off the biggest work of all time and have him fake his death, he
would pick the one whose maxim is “I Lie, I Cheat. I Steal.”
I am a wrestling manager; my ring name is Kenny Casanova. I did not know
Eddie very well, but did have an opportunity to work with him on a few
occasions. I hung out with him one weekend, driving him around
Massachusetts for a couple of shows and he seemed like a great guy. He
was constantly on the phone with his family and joking with people. He
stopped in the mall to talk to a few fans. He was really down to earth.
Before you blast me, keep in mind that this blog has in no way been
written to disrespect him, but rather to disrespect the potential ruse
that WWE might be planning.
I don’t believe in ghosts. I doubt the government is hiding information
about life on other planets from us. I do not subscribe to conspiracy
theories. However, this could be one of the BIGGEST ruses in history. If
this is a big work, I have mixed emotions about it. I say kudos to Vince
for looking at how people have subscribed to such fallacies in pop
culture, such as Tupac or Elvis being still alive and figured out a way
to capitalize on it. At the same time, I also think it is a work in bad
taste and the trust factor would be out the window forever.
I will, however, not be shocked at Wrestlemania if an angle in wrestling
were able to once again finally fool such a large population. It is
slightly possible, that the Internet did not prevail this time, and the
wool has been pulled over the eyes of millions. Even the smartest of all
smart marks, could all be classified as gullible marks once again.
So, the question is - Is Eddie Guerrero still alive? After reading this
article, what do you think?
