Hello everybody! After taking a little time off from analyzing the pro wrestling, I’m back with a vengeance. To be perfectly honest I was getting so frustrated with the direction of the WWE I stopped watching for a bit. I basically threw in the towel after spending $55 on a lackluster Royal Rumble PPV. What turned me around? The launch of the WWE Network. I signed up for the free trial, and like many of you, I found myself falling in love with Pro Wrestling once again. When you areRead More

Sometimes I can’t grasp how quickly time flies by. I can’t believe that is has been 7 years since I was signed to WWE and can’t believe that it’s been just over 5 since my release. Sometimes I really enjoy talking about my experiences there and sometimes it’s the very last thing that I want to talk about. Reading some of my old columns I realized that I’m so down on WWE’s booking and business practices that I ask myself do I even care anymore? And the answer is yes.Read More

It’s been a few weeks since CM Punk walked out of the WWE. Countless articles have been written, numerous theories have been presented, and the question remains unanswered: is it a giant work? I may be wrong, and someone may hold this column over my head as Exhibit A in their defense that I don’t know what I’m talking about…but I have got to say no. A while back, I wrote a column hoping that Daniel Bryan was going to have the equivalent of Bret Hart’s 1991 Summerslam (and thatRead More

Welcome to another edition of “Stro’s View” exclusively on PWMania.com. Lots to talk about so let’s get start with my predictions for the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View. Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel (Kickoff Match): The Rhodes brothers is fresh off of an amazing tag team title run. They are looking to getting another rematch with the champions the New Aged Outlaws to once again get tag team gold. The former members of the Paul Heyman stable in Ryback and Curtis Axel are looking to alsoRead More

Hello everybody, welcome back. Lately every time I watch Raw I feel like I’m in the movie Groundhogs Day. If you haven’t seen the movie, Bill Murrays character wakes up everyday on Groundhogs Day. He has the same exact day, and he can’t seen to get past it. That’s how I feel watching Monday Night Raw. Every single week we get the same promo from The Authority, usually to kick off the show. Then the WWE pains us with 3 hours of mid card action, until the Main Event. IRead More

“So Tell Me What You Want…What You Really Really Want”… Yeah, I started this column after a Spice Girls song. Sue me. I named it this partly because I went to a 90’s party Saturday night with my best friend who dressed as Sporty Spice and the song was stuck in my head all weekend, and partly because the opening is appropriate in discussing the state of affairs in the WWE. The fans are clearly telling WWE what they want, and clearly they are being ignored. In my previous seriesRead More

Hello everybody! Welcome back. What was supposed to be the kick-off to an exciting WrestleMania season turned sour. I went into Sunday excited to watch the Royal Rumble PPV. It’s one of the WWE’s biggest, and most important PPV’s of the year. I’m usually apprehensive about spending $60 on any pro wrestling PPV, but you can’t miss with the Royal Rumble right? Wrong!! I can’t remember the last time I felt so let down by an event. I figured even if everything else bombs the Rumble match is always good,Read More

In 2004, WWE presented their latest, greatest idea to create new Superstars. You’ve heard of Tough Enough right? Well how about we have tough enough, only this time the winner gets A MILLION DOLLARS! We’ll call it….Million Dollar Tough Enough! Yeah that’s right! The 2004 version of Tough Enough featured future WWE Champion the Miz, future WWE developmental talent Dan Rodman, a guy name Justice, eventual winner and MMA fighter Daniel Puder, future male cheerleader of WWE Nick Mitchell, and a guy named Ryan Reeves. Ryan Reeves was a hugeRead More

It may be the cold months, but winter keeps it hot with all the great events. We have basketball in full swing, the Super Bowl is around the corner, and another installment of WWE’s Royal Rumble. The great thing about the rumble every year is the mystery of the whole thing. Who of those 30 men will have what it takes to be the last man standing in the ring? What wrestlers will have an early entry which obviously makes it harder to go the length? Who will get aRead More

Hello everybody! Hope you all are staying warm with this crazy weather. One of my favorite Pay-Per-Views of the year is almost here. The WWE Royal Rumble. The 26th just so happens to be yours truly’s birthday! A Stro Birthday Royal Rumble day. Imagine that! So let’s look thru this year’s card and get the Stro view! WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. The New Age Outlaws (Kick off match) The Rhodes Dynasty has remained strong thus far retaining the Tag Team gold facing many challenges andRead More

The wrestling world lost 2 greats this past week. First the notable passing of the great Mae Young and also former Stampede Alumni and creative booker George Scott. The following is a prayer I wrote for Mae days prior to her passing: Having continued prayers late into the night for the well-being of dear friend, Mae Young, I was not surprised to learn that even without the aid of life support, the grand diva was still in the “fight”. So to Miss Johnnie Mae, I’m pleased to say that youRead More

As I sit here trying to put together a travel plan for Gregory Iron and I for this weekend’s Heroes and Legends event in Indiana (www.heroesandlegendswrestling.com), I thought it would be a neat opportunity to talk about what our partnership means. What it means to me, what it means to fans across country, and maybe what it means to Greg. Please allow me to set the table for the uninitiated: my name is Zach Gowen and I lost my leg to cancer at 8 and at 19 I became oneRead More

As WrestleMania season approaches, so does the question of who will be inducted into the 2014 Hall of Fame class. Inevitably each year I am barraged by fans wondering if/when my brother Owen will be inducted. I too share everyone’s feelings as Owen’s career and accomplishments deserve recognition. However with my sister-in-law, Martha, still at odds with WWE, the likelihood of the two coming to terms on Owen’s individual induction remains highly unlikely. However WWE has an obvious loophole. Much like the 2011 collective induction of the Four Horsemen, IRead More

Welcome to another special “EntertainaMania” edition of “Official’s View with Wes Adams” on PWMania.com. When I was ten years old, and I got a copy of the 1990 Survivor Series from a buddy at school, the day after it aired live on PPV. My only question at the time was, “What the hell happened to Mean Mark Callous!” I was a huge NWA/WCW fan, and enjoyed the Skyscraper tag team of Sid Vicious and Dan Spivey, and later “Mean” Mark Callous and Spivey. It was a big surprise to meRead More

Hey Rasslin’ fans, well, they did it, didn’t they? The WWE pushed all in and showed their hand revealing what everyone else at the table had suspected for a long time: They’ve been sitting on (what they hope is) a Royal Flush. (Not to be confused with what you call it when Jerry Lawler pulls down the strap in the locker room bathroom) I’m talkin’ about their long-anticipated plans for the vaunted WWE Network – announced last week with all the typical pyro and ballyhoo we’ve come to expect fromRead More

Marco in Mexico with Mark Jindark – Talent Spotlight: Rocky Romero

Hello friends, before anything I want to wish you all a prosperous new year. I am sure this year will be filled with great surprises and wrestling action like we saw in 2013. Stay right here in 2014 to PWMania.com for the best up to date information on the world of pro wrestling. As most of you might know, I began my career in the WCW around the year 2000. After the WCW fell, I was fortunate enough to continue my career in the WWE up until 2005. After theRead More

Hello everybody. Welcome back to my first report of 2014. I took a bit of a break, because my wife had to have emergency surgery. I happy to report that she is doing well, so with that it’s time to get back to work. It’s that time of year for pro wrestling. January is the Royal Rumble, and it’s officially the start to WrestleMania season. Thank god for that, because the month of December was painfully boring to watch. We started the New Year with a fun episode of “OldRead More

As WrestleMania season approaches, one of the big questions looming this year is the potential participation of Shawn Michaels. As we all know, Shawn Michaels has vowed never to wrestle again (probably having lost his smile once again), yet for some reason has been teasing a match with protégé Daniel Bryan since October. I have known Shawn for years and seen the evolution of a very talented in ring performer who when given the opportunity to do whatever he wanted, was able to create magic in the ring, yet whenRead More

Welcome to another special “EntertainaMania” edition of “Official’s View with Wes Adams” on PWMania.com. So what do we have in the pipeline for WrestleMania XXX? Well it’s hard for me to say because like I said in my previous column, I haven’t managed to watch the show in a while so I can’t really see what the crowds are reacting to or who. WWE can’t afford a lack luster or halfassed WrestleMania this year. There’s too much riding on it. The WWE Network deal, the biggest moneymaking show of theRead More
