Orlando Jordan

Orlando Mason Jordan is an American semi-retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his tenure in WWE, where he was a one-time United States Champion, his time with TNA Wrestling. Jordan made his WWE television debut on the May 31, 2003 episode of Velocity, where he defeated Jamie Noble. On June 26, 2003, Jordan made his first SmackDown! Appearance as a face at Madison Square Garden, where he lost to John Cena. Although he did not win the match, he was impressive enough that when Cena attacked Jordan after the match was over, The Undertaker, with whom Cena was feuding, came to the ring and helped Jordan to his feet. On the October 2 episode of SmackDown!, Jordan defeated Big Show via countout when Big Show had to run to the restroom after eating a burrito laced with laxatives. Jordan answered an open challenge hosted by Brock Lesnar on the January 29, 2004 episode of SmackDown!, where he was defeated. After an absence of multiple months due to family issues, Jordan returned on the August 5 episode of SmackDown!, defeating René Duprée.

In the night, Jordan turned heel by saving WWE Champion John "Bradshaw" Layfield from an attack by the Undertaker. On the August 12 episode of SmackDown!, Jordan joined Layfield's Cabinet, where he was appointed "Chief of Staff". Jordan faced the Undertaker in the main event that night, losing by disqualification after Layfield attacked Undertaker mid-match. On the August 26 episode of SmackDown!, Jordan once again faced Undertaker, this time with Layfield's WWE Championship on the line. The match once again ended in a disqualification. On the November 25 episode of SmackDown!, Jordan and Layfield defeated Eddie Guerrero and Booker T, after interference from The Basham Brothers, who were made the Cabinet's "co-secretaries of defense" on the December 2 episode of SmackDown!. Jordan and the Bashams were defeated by Booker T, the Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero in a 4-on-3 handicap match on the December 9 episode of SmackDown!. Jordan entered his first Royal Rumble match at the titular event on January 30, 2005, but was eliminated by Booker T.

After Layfield began a feud with a John Cena over the WWE title leading up to WrestleMania 21, Jordan faced off with Cena on the March 3 edition of SmackDown!. Orlando defeated John Cena with the help of Layfield to win the United States Championship, his first and only title in WWE. At WrestleMania 21, Jordan competed in a 30-man battle royal, won by Booker T, his first major successful title defense was against Heidenreich at Judgment Day. At The Great American Bash, Jordan began feuding with the newly drafted Chris Benoit. Jordan defeated Benoit and retained his United States Championship after removing the turnbuckle pad and shoving Benoit head-first into the exposed steel and covered him for the win. Benoit continued to chase Jordan for the title, he defeated Jordan at SummerSlam to win the title. Following this quick match, Jordan attempted to win his title back on multiple occasions, leading to 3 consecutive losses with all matches lasting less than a minute; the first rematch lasted 23.4 seconds.

During the second rematch, Jordan almost knocked out Benoit with a punch in the opening moments but still lost at 22.5 seconds, faster than the first match. During the third match, Jordan stalled until the time, being displayed on the TitanTron, went over 25 seconds, he got so excited when his time went over 30 seconds that he dropped his guard and Benoit took the opportunity to lock on the Sharpshooter for a win at the 49.8 second mark. Earlier in the show, Orlando stated that he had mastered every counter to Benoit's signature Crippler Crossface, shown when during the match every time Benoit attempted the Crippler Crossface, Jordan countered it. After those unsuccessful rematches, Jordan broke away from Layfield, although both made a few appearances together on; when Booker T got injured halfway through his Best of Seven series for the United States Championship, he needed a replacement to face Chris Benoit. As the series was at 3–1 in Booker's favor, Booker T only needed his replacement to win one match in order to become the United States Champion.

Jordan approached him about the position, but Booker T and his wife Sharmell belittled him and made jokes about his quick submission losses to Benoit. Booker asked Randy Orton to substitute for him. After Orton failed to win the deciding match, leading Jordan to once again ask for the position the next week, Booker T once again turned Jordan down after belittling him. During the sixth match in the series, Jordan jumped the rail, grabbed Booker T's crutch, hit Benoit for a disqualification finish and thus giving Benoit the victory and tying the Best of Seven Series at 3–3; the next week, Jordan ran to ringside to attempt to halt Booker T from winning the championship, but was unable to prevent Orton from beating Benoit to win the series for Booker T. On the January 20 episode of SmackDown!, Jordan faced and lost to Randy Orton after Booker's wife Sharmell distracted the SmackDown! Senior official referee Nick Patrick. After the match, Chris Benoit saved him from Booker and Orton, turning him face for the first time since 2004.

Jordan was pushed down to Velocity and won several matches there. Jordan made his final SmackDown! Appearance on the May 12 episode of SmackDown! in a backstage segment, telling Nunzio that he had seen someone who looked like his partner Vito dressed in drag at a night club during the recent UK tour. His final WWE appearance was a loss to Gunner Scott on the May 13 episode of Velocity. On May 26, 2006, WWE announced. Reports allege that it was due t

Opened in 1860, the station forms part of the Udine–Trieste railway, is a junction station for an international branch line linking Gorizia with Ajdovščina in nearby Slovenia; the station is managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana. However, the commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services to and from the station are operated by Trenitalia; each of these companies is a subsidiary of Italy's state-owned rail company. Gorizia Centrale railway station is situated at Piazzale Martiri per la Libertà d'Italia, at the southwestern edge of the city centre; the station was opened on 1 October 1860, upon the inauguration of the Cormons–Galleria section of the Udine–Trieste railway. Located at that time in the territory of the Austrian Empire, the station had the dual name of Görz/Gorizia and was operated by the Imperial Royal Privileged Southern Railway Company of Austria and central Italy.

In 1902, the station became a junction station for the branch line to Ajdovščina, built by the Austrian imperial society Localbahn Görz-Haidenschaft, which awarded management rights to the Südbahngesellschaft. Four years upon the opening of the Jesenice-Trieste railway, the station took on the dual designation of Görz Südbahnhof/Gorizia Meridionale, to distinguish it from its counterpart on the new line, the Görz Staatsbahnhof/Gorizia stazione delle ferrovie dello stato; the two systems were connected by a short rail link using part of the branch line to Ajdovščina. Under the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the two stations went to the Kingdom of Italy, the FS became the operator of both. Over the next twelve years, the station on the Udine-Trieste railway changed its name several times: it retained only its Italian name Gorizia Meridionale it became Gorizia Campagnuzza, since 1923 it has been Gorizia Centrale. Inside the station, there are ticket windows, ticket machines, a lounge, a bar, a newsagency, passport photo machines.
