Looking At The Potential Top WWE Superstars

Last week, the WWE announced that Roman Reigns was rushed to a hospital and he underwent emergency surgery. The time frame for his return is said to be 4-6 weeks, but with the nature of the injury and the physicality of the WWE schedule, it’s possible that it will be a few months before Reigns returns to in ring action. There’s much speculation that Reigns is the next top star for the WWE and that he will be the competitor to eventually dethrone Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31 to winRead More

Looking At WWE’s International Signings

Amongst the numerous WWE releases and budget cuts, there were some major signings as well, including some international stars that could provide another set of new stars for the WWE landscape in the next few years. During WWE’s tour of Japan a few months ago, it was announced in Osaka that the company signed Pro Wrestling NOAH star KENTA. The signing was considered a major event as Hulk Hogan was there for the announcement and in some ways, the role for Hogan works well, as his appearance could be consideredRead More
“Let me talk to ya” Be honest with yourself, how much have you enjoyed the Tag Title reign of The Usos? They’ve had the titles sine March, and they’ve had great matches, good matches and okay matches. The good news is to my eyes, they have never been bad matches, but if I’m being honest, I’ve had my fill of The Usos as the champs. I’m starting to look around at the other teams to see who should take the titles off them right now. I am one-hundred percent behindRead More

WWE NXT Takeover 2: Fatal 4-Way Reactions

When WWE Network aired “NXT Takeover: Fatal 4-Way”, I was very hesitant as to how to think about it. Sometimes, what makes something great is not rubbing it in our faces. I’m in the camp that believes the WWE Title should be defended 4-6 times a year; versus 12 minimum.Read More

Special Look At Let’s Go Cena vs. Cena Sucks

When you get past the “wrestling”, “storytelling”, or whatever else the industry of pro wrestling is, all it truly is about is getting strong reactions. If you’re a heel, you want people to hate you. If you’re a face, you want people to love you. It is really that simple. It’s just really odd how we ended up going through on era of changing the status quo by saying that heels can now be beloved. Then we had a following of kayfabe stretching with Punk before we’ve more or lessRead More

The Shot in the Arm: Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt

“Let me talk to ya” Really think about this for a second, why isn’t Randy Orton being booked to his full potential? He is making Roman Reigns look awesome right now. I can’t figure out why Randy Orton hasn’t been booked as a serious threat in a long time. Orton was a great heel because he had the ability to be the kind of heel that didn’t need to cheat to win. Being a part of The Authority as a heel who is constantly losing is not what originally madeRead More
Heading into Monday’s “season premiere” of Raw, to say the show of late has been dull, uninspiring and downright insulting would be putting it mildly. The announcement that Jerry Springer would be hosting an intervention for The Bella Twins only made matters worse. And make no mistake, through no fault of his own, that Springer segment was every bit as cringe-inducing as I thought it would be. Yet, despite that, the same people responsible for bringing us this awful soap opera did manage to get one thing right – andRead More
WWE: Batista – The Animal Unleashed DVD and Blu-ray Review Looking back, it seems fair to say that Batista’s return to the WWE was not handled as well as it should have been. Added to the Royal Rumble at the last minute, he faced a hostile audience who wanted nothing more than to see Daniel Bryan in that match and ultimately the WrestleMania main event. Interestingly, Batista: The Animal Unleashed doesn’t gloss over any of this, and Dave Bautista openly addresses these issues and his disappointment at how fans respondedRead More

WWE Money In The Bank 2014 DVD and Blu-ray Review

WWE Money In The Bank 2014 DVD and Blu-ray Review WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos vs. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan With the right opponents, both The Usos and The Wyatt Family are capable of delivering 10/10 instant classics. It’s lucky then that when you put these four into the ring together, they do that time and time again. This was a fast-paced and competitive back and fore match which kept us all on the edge of our seats with a series of near falls before the brotherRead More

Looking At The 5 Biggest Problems With Wrestling Today

Civil hatred within the fanbase You simply can’t avoid it. Whatever socially-based medium you happen to be reading, browsing or a part of, whether it’s Twitter or Facebook, you will at some point be referred to as a ‘mark’ or ‘smark’. These terms drive me absolutely insane, because when you really think about it, it all boils down to the fact that we as wrestling fans are criticised and labelled as marks for liking certain angles or performers. It’s pathetic. In no other sport are fans labelled as a certainRead More

Bray Wyatt: What’s The Plan?

I’m just going to throw this out there. Raw was bad. It was actually really bad. They were advertising next weeks show before that week’s Raw was over. There were some bright spots. Overall, I wasn’t entertained but among all of it, I noticed something missing. Anyone else notice how Bray Wyatt wasn’t on Raw last night at all? Anyone else notice that he went from the Jericho feud to absolutely nothing. He’s not even doing promos. Sure, they are kinda keeping it going by having the two rekindle theirRead More

Our first show is labeled “Nitro 103.” The main attractions were a Ric Flair vs Randy Savage WCW Championship match, and ArnRead More
WWE: Brothers Of Destruction: Greatest Matches DVD & Blu-ray Review Brothers of Destruction: Greatest Matches is a no-frills set which collects some of Kane and The Undertaker’s best matches as a tag team in 2001 and during their brief reunions in 2006 and 2008. While the set doesn’t contain the type of classic battles you’ll one day want to tell your kids about, it’s still a fun collection which is an essential purchase for anyone who considers themselves a fan of the duo. Kicking off with a slick promo introducingRead More
I was set to continue writing a column about some of the new WWE signings (that should be posted next week) and I planned to publish it tomorrow, but as I was scrolling through the recent wrestling news, I read a story that should be addressed. WWE ambassador, Hulk Hogan is once again trying to work his way into a big money match, this time with Stone Cold Steve Austin, as Hogan called out Austin during a recent interview. Hogan concluded his statement when he said that if the matchRead More

Brock Lesnar – A Part-Time WWE Champion

In my opinion, one of the only things in WWE at the moment that is keeping my attention is the fact that Brock Lesnar is now WWE champion. Summerslam was 2 weeks ago, and since I’ve been seeing tweets about the validity of Brock’s run because he is part-time and some negativity towards his victory. I just wanted to say my opinion and question some of the negative opinions that these fans seem to have. First of all I completely understand and appreciate the criticism that Brock Lesnar is aRead More
WWE: OMG! The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History DVD and Blu-ray Review Three years ago, WWE released OMG! The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History. Rather than follow it up with a Blu-ray focusing on another 50 moments from their storied past (which it’s not hard to imagine them being able to do), Volume 2 puts the spotlight on WCW. The set is nicely put together, but in a no frills sort of fashion. There’s no host here to introduce each moment as it instead just counts them downRead More

WWE Payback 2014 DVD and Blu-ray Review

WWE Payback 2014 DVD and Blu-ray Review United States Championship Match: Sheamus vs. Cesaro Payback kicked off with a great match between Cesaro and Sheamus (though it would be Paul Heyman who killed both our and the Chicago crowds hopes for a CM Punk return before it even started), and the finish was an unexpected one, especially as so many of Sheamus’ matches end with a predictable Brogue Kick out of nowhere. Reliving this slugfest will definitely make you excited for the feud which once again picked up between theRead More

Too Many Legends Around In WWE?

WWE has made it common business practice to bring in retired superstars and put them in front of television cameras. They’ve done it for a long time and I’m sure will continue doing it…forever.Read More
