Just over a month ago, we watched as Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania XXX, and we delighted in seeing our beloved underdog reach the mountaintop. Did we see the peak? Was the thrill of the chase better than the tension of defending the spoils? I started a piece last week with those words, however, it never got posted, because my complaints about how Daniel Bryan was being booked like CM Punk (destined to face a ton of second-tier opponents instead of bursting the John CenaRead More
Daniel Bryan, the reigning WWE champion, has a broken neck. How badly broken, we won’t know until after his surgery on Thursday. Either way, that is not the news anybody wanted or expected to hear, least of all Bryan. WWE is promising an announcement on the status of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship next Monday on Raw, pending the outcome of his surgery. If the injury is minor, he could be back in a matter of weeks. Or it could be months before we see him inside the ring again.Read More
Slyck Wagner Brown recently took part in an exclusive interview with PWMania.com. Brown began his career as a wrestler training with his mentor and legendary WWE Hall of Famer Killer Kowalski. Among his career highlights, he’s defeated Christopher Daniels for the 3PW Championship. He has competed for several Northeastern independent promotions, including Ring of Honor, Squared Circle Wrestling, and Big Time Wrestling. Brown would also have a longtime association with former nWo Girls April Hunter, who would manage and tag with him for several years even holding tag team titlesRead More
Thanks to PWMania.com reader Liam Gallacher for sending this in: Fan Experience: WWE WrestleMania XXX New Orleans, 2014 My friend and I went to our first Wrestlemania and Traveled from London to New Orleans to be there. I have been a huge fan of pro wrestling for the last 17 years and to say I was pumped was an understatement! The atmosphere in New Orleans was incredible from the get go, with spontaneous YES! Chants engulfing the airport, restaurants, bars and best of all the entire stretch of Bourbon Street.Read More
Thanks to PWMania.com reader Andy Badwool for sending this in: I was in attendance at WrestleMania 30 sitting in the Lower Level section at the Superdome in the side that faces the stage (so the one behind the announce table), and something very strange happened regarding the Streak match. Right after The Undertaker completed his entrance, when the match was about to start, for a split second a big white “0” number graphic appeared inside the “X” on the right (of the three XXX) of the WrestleMania XXX stage. ItRead More
Maybe my wish came true. John Cena addressed directly the fans putting him in harm’s way this Monday on RAW. He sounded hurt, tired, and aware that a lot of time had passed. It was excellent, full of everything I’d asked for. It wasn’t even the best part, though. Bray Wyatt delivered, with few words, an epic, scary, amazing promo, one that got St. Louis on Cena’s side and himself booed. A children’s choir, the picture of innocence, singing the song Bray has sung for weeks. “He’s Got the WholeRead More

WWE Extreme Rules: The Evolution Of Triple H

When you think of Triple H, what is the first thing that comes to mind? In today’s Internet Wrestling Community, many feel that Triple H is out to bury young talent, and really rubs fans the wrong way. I think this is so far from the truth, as Triple H just put over Daniel Bryan cleanly at WrestleMania 30, and Bryan went on to become WWE Champion. He was also the one to cement Batista and John Cena’s championship runs (but this is an argument to deal with another time).Read More

Can The WWE Intercontinental Title Be Saved?

This Sunday at Extreme Rules, Big E defends his Intercontinental championship against Bad News Barrett. Barrett is no stranger to the title as he’s held it three times before, each run less memorable than the one prior. Personally, it’s just nice to see Barrett back in the ring wrestling after months of badly scripted comedy and podium prognostications. I actually expect him to take the title in New Jersey, much the same way he did a year ago in that very same building the night after WrestleMania. Who knows, maybeRead More

When Does “SuperCena” Become Vulnerable?

It’s the most frequent topic of conversation amongst older (i.e. over 18-year-old) wrestling fans. When will John Cena, the “Superman” of WWE for nine years, become vulnerable in matches? Cena has ridden a wave of wins not seen since the heyday of Hulk Hogan from 1984-1988, where he sometimes loses, but rarely twice in a row, and NEVER cleanly twice in a row. He is the indomitable force, the person who wins even in handicap matches. Honestly, have you ever seen a ref call for a DQ quicker than whenRead More
World Championship Wrestling
Looking back, WCW had everything at its disposal to be the greatest wrestling company ever. Big names, young talent, cruiserweights, and a billionaires funding were just some of the tools in WCW’s arsenal. For the period of July ’96 to December ’98 WCW was hotter than fish grease. They seemed to hit on all angles creatively, and became clear #1 wrestling company in the world. However, a number of missteps occurred both behind the scenes, and in the ring that would ultimately be their undoing. To be frank, a numberRead More

Roman Reigns – The Next Big Star or Shield-ed

Since their debut at the Survivor Series 2012 The Shield have been involved at the top of the card with some of the biggest names in the WWE, along the way rubbing shoulders with the likes of The Rock, CM Punk, John Cena and The Undertaker. The rise of these 3 men (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins) has been quite unprecedented, not only we’re they presented as equals to men listed above in their encounters but they went on a long undefeated streak and captured tag team andRead More
Welcome back to the Indy Wrestling Spotlight! This time, we’ll put a focus on former WWE wrestler Colin Delaney, as well as LuFisto. It’s time to turn on the spotlight! Ethan Page vs. Colin Delaney – Absolute Intense Wrestling Based out of Cleveland, Ohio, this promotion, owned by John Thorne, is another excellent promotion that gives many newcomers a chance to shine while working with name talent. This bout, featuring the aforementioned Delaney, is an example of that. You may notice that Colin looks remarkably different from how he didRead More
It’s been a few weeks, but I’ve been away enjoying vacation and the madness that is WrestleMania XXX week. If you’ve never experienced this and are a fan, I highly recommend it. You meet people from all over the world who share the same love for pro wrestling as you do. There is nothing more fun than that. I’m grateful I was able to witness the Ultimate Warrior’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, as well as his last appearance on Raw. The company did a tremendous job honoringRead More
By any calculation, Wrestling has a prestigious history. Looking back at certain times, one can trace points where something happened that changed the direction of the industry. The question “what if”, can be applied to just about every walk of life. What if Jordan never retired in the 1990’s? What if Tupac and Biggie were still alive? What if you didn’t drink everything in sight that one night? It’s one of the best questions to ask yourself, because you’ll never really know the answer. Wrestling is no different. Whether throughRead More

10 Things Needed By WWE WrestleMania 31

WWE WrestleMania season has come to a close officially, but it seems that a lot of WWE fans are feeling the post-WM buzz in many ways. It has been a seriously newsworthy couple of weeks in WWE, with the Undertaker’s streak being broken for the first time in a very controversial manner; Daniel Bryan’s long overdue ascension to the top of the WWE mountain and the very tragic untimely passing of one of the greatest legends of all time, the Ultimate Warrior. To say there has been much going onRead More
With Sting on board with WWE and the in-ring future of The Undertaker, his most desired opponent in doubt, there is a good chance that the WCW icon could wind up facing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at next year’s WrestleMania in Santa Clara, California. (Photos: The Rock’s Current Girlfriend) In 2004, Johnson was only making sporadic appearances for WWE due to his thriving acting career and having accomplished most of his goals in the professional wrestling industry. While he still desired to wrestle, it was primarily against opponents of hisRead More
After dropping the Divas Championship week to the debuting Paige, AJ Lee is taking a hiatus from WWE. Conspicuous by her absence on recent Raw’s was the New Jersey native, who many would have expected to address the young upstart after she ended her record-setting 295-day title reign. When she didn’t appear on Monday April 14th’s Raw in Birmingham, Alabama nor Tuesday April 15th SmackDown and WWE Main Event taping in Nashville, Tennessee, questions were raised. (Hot Photos Of AJ Lee’s Assets In Action) The script for April 14th’s RawRead More
