As you know, we try to stay away from rumors and news, but there's an alledged news piece that may come as a shock to fans of the West Hollywood Blondes. According to The Official Lodi Webpage, Lenny and Lodi are being taken off television indefinitely. Seems that someone in the Turner conglomerate is upset about the supposed overtones of the gimmick and wants the angle to die a quick death. I'm not going to comment about it just yet, but the actual message from the webmaster of Lodi's offical webpage explains it all in detail. Click here to read the piece. It also contains a link for fans to e-mail WCW to try to keep the Blondes from getting removed from WCW storylines.
So, if we're not a news site, why am I posting this? Well, I've been a fan of Lenny since his jobbing days. He's got good skills for a newcomer and no matter what the outcome of his matches is, he (and Lodi as well) always manage to put on a good show in both the wrestling and entertainment sense. It's kind of a blow to hear about up-and-coming talent getting buried for no reason whatsoever, be it true or a work, especially when they're employed in a promotion that is a distant second place.
But, I always thought those Rick Steiner punch-and-kick restfests on Nitro were more entertaining anyway.*
