Strongest Man Alive?

I was asked earlier today what I thought of the alleged drowning in the pool story that Taylor has been spreading around. Once again I am usually the last to know what Taylor says but thanks to my friends on Twitter I am usually kept abreast of her rhetoric. I responded that I never watched what Taylor has to say so I didn't know anything about a pool or a supposed drowning incident. I was sent some links to explain the story. One of the links I received was from the chirping_twit: http://thechirpingtwit.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/reunion-ninja-pool-fight-scene/. Without getting into too much detail Taylor claimed that Russ could lift much bigger men, throw Pitbulls in the pool and drown her all while being beat in the head with a log being swung like a baseball bat. I believe Taylor made the claim that Russ beat much bigger men and claimed he was 250-0. I grew up with Russ and was his best friend. I also was always much bigger than him so I honestly say that her claims are just utterly ridiculous. While growing up Russ used to think it was funny to jump on me and start wrestling. We wrestled and wrestled and wrestled. We would knock things off the wall, wrestle in to his bathroom and knock down shower curtains. We were both very competitive and had teenage energy running through our bodies so we wrestled hard. One of our best friends witnessed many of our famous wrestling matches. I can remember him jumping on the bed nervously laughing saying "ya'll are going to get in a fight". Russ and I never got in a fight. We never threw a punch at each other and he certainly didn't have superhuman strength. That was quite a tale Taylor told of being in a couple's backyard whichever version you read. What might be the hardest part of the whole story to believe is her friends were scared a coyote might get their bulldog. Since Taylor is from Oklahoma I am surprised she doesn't know a coyote wants no part of a pitbull. If she had said a cat that would be more believable. Where are the ambulance records, hospital records and did her friend not bust Russ' head open hitting him with a log like a baseball bat? Take it from someone who wrestled with Russell Armstrong a number of times when he was much stronger, Russ didn't have superhuman strength and he was most definitely not 250-0.

There is a funny story that's been on my mind ever since I posted the picture of Russ and me in South Padre' Island on Twitter. I have mentioned he loved to play practical jokes. On that trip there was a condo full of guys next door to our condo full of guys. The guys next door decided to set off fireworks and of course that brought the law out. I had met a young lady earlier that evening and we had retired to one of the bedrooms and were doing what 18 year old boys and girls do on their high school graduation trip. When the police arrived Russ told them I was in the bedroom going nuts tearing the room up. He got one of the policemen to unlock the bedroom door with a key from the manager that had met the police. Well needless to say the young lady and I were surprised to get a flash light pointed at us. When I came out of the room a few minutes later Russ was laughing so hard he could hardly tell me what he had done. The picture of Russ and me in Padre is one of my most cherished photos.

  1. Small correction: Taylor said "pit bulls" not bulldogs, which a fairly significant distinction-and makes her story even more implausible. And pit bulls CAN swim.

  2. And one of those pitbulls 'drownded'(Taylor's word).....

    What a great story Randy. I'm so glad that you can recall things like that. Too bad you aren't in the position to share funny anecdotes(not THAT one, to, lol) with Kennedy. She will need you, one day, to tell her about the good times with her Dad. You probably should start writing them down now while they still are fresh in your mind. Again, thank you for everything you are doing to right this horrible wrong that Taylor has started.

  3. I caught the tail end of Taylor on Wendy Williams today. Her story changed, as I recall it. She told Wendy that Russell SHATTERED her orbital floor. It struck me wrong so I rewound it and wrote it down. When I think of the definition of shattered coupled with an orbital floor, I imagine someone's eyeball falling downward. All that and no bruising. She must be Super Woman. On top of that , she did not correct Wendy when she said to Taylor, " I saw that picture of your black eye. I'm sorry you had to go through that. ". She let her believe the bruising was from his fist and not from the surgery. When will she be publicly exposed? I'm outraged the news outlets have turned a blind eye to her tall tales. Please keep blogging about the fun times with Russell. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know that side of him.

    1. Amazing how a 4mm depression turns into SHATTERING. Must be why she yanked that medical report down so quickly. She realized it did not add up with what she told Ms. Wendy! I told my bf once when he tried to lie to me, Never lie to people smarter than you, and keep a notebook of your lies if you are going to be that stupid. But liars always out themselves, just as Sha-tay-tay* does. (Thanks to GeneParm on Gawker for that moniker*) Funny that the tailor was the one who was the big liar in the story The Emperor's New Clothes. Randy is the kid in the crowd saying, Yo, you're naked, We see everything, cause the tailor is a great big phony!

  4. I am happy to see that someone is sticking up for Russell. I've watched thes how from the start, and to tell you the truth, will not continue if "Taylor" is on next season.
    Russell was no saint in business-but it is so obvious that Taylor knew it, pushed him to go way beyond his means, and even got pregnant on purpose. His slaughtering by her obvious lies sickens me. PLEASE keep putting the word out there, show the timelines, and get folks' attention she is a liar. I feel so bad she never mentions his other sons, or take their feelings into consideration. Keep up your good work.

  5. Hopefully, the day will come when Kennedy can hear these memories and hold them tight. Now the poor girl is sitting at book signings, as her Mom discusses in length what a monster her Daddy was...beyond tragic.
    Thank you, again Randy. Keep fighting the good fight. You have enormous numbers behind you, and we are applauding. Be blessed.

  6. Randy,

    So nice to hear your stories about Russell. But please answer me this: On the reality show, Taylor describes a briefcase containing papers, flash drives, etc, which she took home, and has apparently not looked at the flash drives because she could get sued. Anything near Russell's body would have been considered evidence in a crime scene, and her admitting to taking it on national television, would put her in some legal trouble. Anything going on with this... has the family questioned the police about this?

    1. She has been questioned and she is not cooperative at all with anybody she claims to be. I can't be specific for obvious reasons

    There’s something incredibly assured about Isabel Marant and her aesthetic that you can close your eyes and see the girl with her just-rolled-out-of-bed hair and minimal make-up with hands in the pockets of skinny trousers, strutting about nonchalantly. That’s the attitude that has given way to a fervent Marant fanbase.
    She also seems to have a knack for turning the naff into new, or at the very least refreshed as she honed in on a Western frontier theme that resulted in embroidered yoked shirts, skinny trousers with gaucho curl patterns and cowboy boots. She worked elements of Little House on the Prairie into Edwardian lace dresses and casual shirts. Laser-cut leather and studded mini dresses created the harder and more decorative pieces in the collection.
    Still, the silhouette hardly wavered from her tried and tested cropped skinny trouser, the tucked in shirt and pointy pumps as well as a sprinkling of those quilted jackets and satin bombers. Marant gets away with simply changing up the motif because she’s well aware of what her girl wants from an Isabel Marant piece of clothing. Everything has to look like there was minimal effort involved in an ensemble, which is why Marant didn’t try to fix something that clearly wasn’t broken.
