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.

Looking At The Ultimate Warrior Report

Last week, the wrestling world was shocked when it was reported that The Ultimate Warrior had died just a few days after he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame and he made an appearance on Raw. Warrior was a controversial performer and while some of his public speaking appearances during the past few years were as ridiculous as his promos, it seemed as though he was mostly on good terms with many of the people that he had disagreements with years previously. Regardless of the prior hostility, it’sRead More
Former WWE and WCW superstar Diamond Dallas Page recently participated in an exclusive interview with PWMania.com. DDP speaks on topics such as Vince McMahon, Eric Bischoff, his popular exercise system DDP Yoga, his time in wrestling, WWE, WCW and more. Below is the complete interview. Dallas, thank you for taking the time to do this interview with PWMania. My first question is how did you get into wrestling? I first tried when I was 22. I was watching the WWWF in my teens and thought I’d give it a shot.Read More
One of the main selling points and one of the highlights of Wrestlemania the past few years has been The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at the event. The matches have become tough to follow because there are over two decades of history behind the streak and it’s something that won’t be done again. The performances have delivered and there’s anticipation for who will be the next opponent to challenge the streak. This year Brock Lesnar will challenge The Undertaker, but will the match live up to the hype? The pivotal pointRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act XII It all begins again was the moniker of Wrestlemania XX in Madison Square Garden. The feud between Kane and The Undertaker had resurfaced after Kane buried his brother alive at Survivor Series 2003. The Undertaker was in an intense feud with Vince McMahon before Kane intervened. Kane laughed over the grave of The Undertaker as he claimed that despite the common bond the two men shared, The Undertaker had changed into just another one of the people. He had become like themRead More
After four long years of retirement from in-ring competition, The Heartbreak Kid returned in an angle against Triple H at Summerslam 2002. They are great matches. I do mean great. It was funny because Michaels came back and it was like he had never left. If anything, he was better than he was before. Four years is a long time to not be wrestling and to come back on top of his game was a shot in the arm for WWE. When HBK left after Wrestlemania XIV, the Stone ColdRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act XI Hey, so I’ve been dreading this one. I don’t like the match, I think it’s boring and I’m not into the story. So let’s just get that out of the way right now. When you think of The Streak, do you think about the killer match Taker had with Big Show and Lord A-Train? Nothing against Big Show, or Taker, or the other one, I know I don’t think good things when I think of this match, but I am still goingRead More
The biggest week in the wrestling industry is just a few days away! The card for WrestleMania 30 is set, and while everyone is looking forward to the WWE Championship match and The Undertaker defending his 21-0 streak, there’s one match that I think can steal the show. The Bray Wyatt and John Cena feud on RAW the last few weeks has played out perfectly. From Cena being tied up in the ropes with a sheep mask on, to this past week where Cena looked like he joined The WyattRead More
) It’s official ladies and gentlemen, WrestleMania week is finally upon us! The WWE is working on making this years WrestleMania 30 the biggest wrestling event in its history. For those of us with the WWE Network, we will be able to see behind the scenes footage prior to the event, the full Hall Of Fame Ceremony, and a two hour WrestleMania Pre-Show! Of course, all of us internet fans can not wait until the WWE Championship match, and hope that Daniel Bryan finally gets his redemption. During the “OccupyRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act X We’ve reached number ten. We’ve seen The Undertaker become The Deadman. He has taken on the likes of Jake Roberts, Kane, Triple H, Psycho Sid and others, but at Wrestlemania XVIII, it was The Nature Boy who had something to say about The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania Streak. At the time, The Nature Boy had half ownership of the WWE after the invasion by WCW and ECW. Flair used the power to do a lot of things. One of which was interfering and blockingRead More
This was my first Wrestlemania. I was watching wrestling beforehand, but this is where my memory starts for sure and I can confidently say that I remember this. I remember Stone Cold Steve Austin winning the WWF Championship from Shawn Michaels. I consider that match to be the one that made me love wrestling. It was the perfect scenario of me coming along at the right time and Austin being the guy to take the reigns from Michaels. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the WWF had changedRead More
Today, I woke up with a big smile on my face because it occurred to me almost immediately, “I get to see Shawn Michaels win the WWF Championship today.” Not only do I get to see it, we get to see him win it on the grandest stage of them all, but only after an hour of wrestling Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Yesterday, I discussed how close Shawn Michaels got to capturing the gold at the last Wrestlemania against Diesel. Honestly, with the celebrity involvement, the match quality and theRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act IX You know what I noticed in this column? It is quite strange that we go from Streak match to Streak match because a lot changes in a year of wrestling. Our latest couple of matches have been a war against Kane and then the next day, we are talking about the extreme version of The Deadman who is crucifying people on Raw and hanging The Big Bossman from the Hell in a Cell at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, The Phenom wouldn’t compete at WrestlemaniaRead More
In my opinion, the Boyhood Dream for Shawn Michaels began here when he challenged his former bodyguard and WWF Champion Diesel at Wrestlemania XI in Hartford, Connecticut. I know this event has the hype of the Lawrence Taylor vs. Bam Bam Bigelow match-up as well as the participation of other celebrities. I consider this match the second act of The Heartbreak Kid becoming WWF Champion. Nearly a year removed from the ladder match with Razor Ramon at Wrestlemania X, their rematch at Summerslam and then the split between himself andRead More
In pro wrestling, as in life, there are certain universal truths. John Cena will always emerge victorious, Dolph Ziggler will never receive the kind of push most feel he deserves, and The Undertaker’s Streak will remain in tact for all eternity. Whether Cena should remain at the head of the pack whilst the undeniably talented Ziggler languishes around the midcard is a topic of much debate, though it’s hard to argue against the idea of The Dead Man continuing to have his hand raised in victory for as long asRead More

For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act VIII A year after brother vs. brother, The Undertaker had moved on to recoil with Paul Bearer. The Undertaker was buried alive by Stone Cold Steve Austin and upon his return, he created a faction of darkness known as The Ministry. The Ministry had tormented the McMahon family for weeks on end, until their attention was turned directly to The Big Bossman because of his involvement and protection of the McMahons. The character of The Undertaker had changed drastically and mind games wereRead More
Wrestlemania X was a game changer. It opened with one of the best matches Bret Hart ever had against his brother and should be Hall of Famer Owen. As great as that match was, a lot of people define the show by the Ladder Match between Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon. Even though the Ladder Match was a thing before as Bret Hart will continue to tell anyone who wants to turn the spotlight onto anyone else, Razor vs. Michaels was the trend setter. You will see, or rewatch theRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act VII I’ve been really excited for this match. I began watching wrestling somewhere in between Wrestlemania XIII and XIV. This was my first Wrestlemania and my first Streak match that I saw in real time. I was eight years old when I saw this war between brothers. What was great about Kane is that the character walked in and was immediately over because he was sold as the brother of The Undertaker. The Deadman was an established veteran at this point in hisRead More
