Job (professional wrestling)

In professional wrestling slang, a job is a losing performance in a wrestling match. It is derived from the euphemism "doing one's job", employed to protect information related to kayfabe from being revealed; the term can be used a number of ways. When a wrestler is booked to lose a match it is described as "a job"; the act itself is described with the verb jobbing, while the act of booking to job is called jobbing out. To lose a match is to job cleanly. Wrestlers who lose matches are known as jobbers. A regular jobber skilled at enhancing the matches he loses, as opposed to a mediocre local rookie or part-timer, is called a carpenter. In the post-kayfabe era the term has taken on a negative connotation, leading to the use of the neutral term enhancement talent. A job, presented as being the result of an close, entertaining match, or underhanded tactics on the part of an opponent, will not tarnish a wrestler's reputation if the situation is presented as one where the wrestler "deserved" to win but was cheated.

At other times a high-profile loss one which makes the wrestler in question look weak, foolish, or otherwise damages their reputation, might signify certain behind-the-scenes events that have real-life implications on a wrestler. Such a job may mark the end of a push, a departure from the company, or a loss of faith in the wrestler as a marketable commodity; as a result, it may mark a downward slide in a wrestler's career. This is the case when the wrestler is beaten easily, or squashed. Sometimes, jobbing is presented to a wrestler because of the problems and bad working relationship that the wrestler and the owner of the promotion have. At other times, it is a requirement of a wrestler's on-the-job training, learning how to perform in front of a live audience while helping make the more established wrestlers look credible. World Wrestling Entertainment has referred to jobbers as lovable, adorable "losers". Sometimes they euphemistically use the term "local competitor". Jobber is a professional wrestling term used to describe a wrestler, defeated by main eventers, mid-carders, or low-carders.

Most promoters do not use the term because of the negative connotation. Jobbers have been used since the 1950s, they were popular in promotions of the United States and Canada around this time. World Wrestling Entertainment made greatest use of full-time jobbers during their syndicated television shows in the 1980s and early 1990s, Superstars of Wrestling, Wrestling Challenge and All-Star Wrestling. Barry Horowitz and Steve Lombardi were the wrestlers most prominently identified with this role. D. Jones, George South, Dusty Wolfe, Mario Mancini, Tim Horner, Sonny Rogers, Brian Costello, Red Tyler, Tom "Rocky" Stone. Many of these wrestlers did work matches against each other at larger arena cards at venues such as Madison Square Garden and were more competitive against their opponents, with several of these wrestlers gaining victories. In some cases, a number of these wrestlers had main-event matches at some point before being pushed toward the bottom of the roster's hierarchy; some were given gimmicks such as Poffo and Lombardi.

World Championship Wrestling, just like the WWE, made huge use of jobbers during the late 1980s and 1990s. Jobbers like Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker, Bobby Walker, Joe Gomez, The Gambler, The Roadblock and Trent Knight lost the majority of their matches. However, they scored clean victories against other pure jobbers. Wrestlers who worked as jobbers for WWE were employed as jobbers in WCW during this period; the American Wrestling Association made moderate use of jobbers in their shows. In independent promotions jobbers appear, but when they do, it is in squash matches. A jobber may not lose, only make the superstar look powerful - or at least make another wrestler interfering with the match to look more powerful. One example is Jimmy Jacobs: employed by WWE as a jobber for a time, Jacobs wrestled Eddie Guerrero during the latter's last heel run. Though Jacobs was squashed, he won by disqualification when Guerrero beat him with a chair. Another example of a jobber winning was when "The Kid" won an upset over Razor Ramon on the May 17, 1993 episode of Raw.

He renamed himself the "1-2-3 Kid". This win were worked into Ramon's feud with Ted DiBiase, with DiBiase taunting Ramon over losing to a nobody until he too was pinned by the Kid. On the September 20, 1993 episode of Raw, I. R. S. was pinned with a rollup by P. J. Walker thanks to Ramon's interference. Jobbers can get recognition on social media after appearing on a major promotion, giving them exposure they wouldn't receive otherwise. While being interviewed by Byron Saxton

At maximum intensity, Talim was a category 4 super typhoon; the name of the typhoon comes from the Tagalog term talim, which means "a sharp or cutting edge". An area of convection which developed and persisted 250 nmi east-northeast of Guam, it was first mentioned as a suspect area in JTWC's STWO issued at 06:00 UTC 24 August when satellite imagery revealed a broad LLCC associated with the disturbance. An upper-level analysis revealed a low to moderate wind shear environment. However, an upper-level LOW was impinging on the outflow on the northern side of the circulation. Despite this, the potential for development of a significant tropical cyclone was raised to "good" at August 25 22:00 UTC and a TCFA issued; the first warning was released at 26/0600 UTC when Tropical Depression 13W was located 100 nmi west-southwest of Guam.

It was upgraded to a 35-kn tropical storm by both JTWC and JMA on August 27 00:00 UTC, the tropical cyclone being assigned the name Talim.

At this time, PAGASA christened the tropical cyclone: Isang after the storm had entered their AOR. Typhoon Talim continued to strengthen on 28 August while moving on a more westward heading and reached a peak intensity of 130 kn on August 29 18:00 UTC. After maintaining this strength for nearly 24 hours, a weakening trend began late on 30 August as the storm approached the island of Taiwan. Typhoon Talim made landfall near Taiwan, on August 31 18:00 UTC with a MSW of 95 kn. From there, the cyclone crossed the Taiwan Strait and came ashore near Fuzhou, around September 1 06:00 UTC, the same time that it was downgraded to a 55-kn tropical storm.

JTWC issued the final warning on the same day while JMA continued to maintain the system as a tropical storm, downgrading Talim to a tropical depression at September 2 06:00 UTC. The last statement issued by JMA was that day. At least 7 people were reported killed in the storm; the typhoon left the island that day and headed towards China. Typhoon Talim was the second storm of such strength to hit Taiwan during the 2005 storm season, the first time since 1994. More than 15 million people were affected by the storm. At least 110 people were reported dead in eastern China because of floods and landslides. A further 28 people were reported missing. More than 150,000 people were evacuated, thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed; the Ministry of Civil Affairs in China reported that the typhoon caused 12.19 billion yuan of economic losses.

Kim Seelbrede

Kimberly Seelbrede is a beauty queen from Ohio who held the title Miss USA 1981. Seelbrede is a licensed psychotherapist in the states of New Mexico. Kimberly holds a graduate degree from New York University. Following the pageant, Kimberly embarked on a career in television and print modeling, she made numerous appearances in soap operas, appeared in national and regional commercials and print ads. Kim signed a lucrative contract as the Sony Beta Movie Spokesperson where she appeared in posters and television advertisements. In 1982, Kimberly declined. Seelbrede, who hails from Greenville, Ohio won the Miss Ohio USA pageant in late 1980, she represented her state at the nationally televised 1981 Miss USA pageant, held in Biloxi, Mississippi in May 1981, where she became the second woman from Ohio to win the Miss USA title. Seelbrede competed at the Miss Universe pageant held in New York City in July 1981; this was the first time the pageant had been held in the United States for ten years: the pageant had been staged internationally for the previous decade after being held in the United States for the first twenty years of the pageant's existence.

Seelbrede placed in the semi-finals at the pageant, won by Irene Saez of Venezuela. Her low placement was somewhat unexpected, as she was in the lead in the earliest portion of the contest fell to second in the preliminary competition. There was speculation that a judge was instructed by a pageant official to give Seelbrede the lowest possible score in an effort to keep her from placing in the finals; the host of the 1981 Miss Universe pageant, Bob Barker, has been criticized for his sarcastic manner during the interview round. It has been speculated that Seelbrede's failure to advance into the finals during the main competition was due to his sardonic questioning about the “exciting” places that she had visited since becoming Miss USA in May that year. Seelbrede was the second Miss Ohio USA to win the national title, the first being Sue Ann Downey in 1965. Kim Seelbrede is a licensed psychotherapist and consultant in New York.
