Brock Lesnar: The Beast Is The Best

Love him or hate him, Brock Lesnar is our new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. It was a dominant performance at SummerSlam over John Cena that put the Conqueror at the top spot. What implications does this have going forward?Read More

ThunderStruck: WWE Summerslam 2014 Reaction

Rob Van Dam defeats Cesaro on the pre show in eight minutes. ^The best match RVD has had since he returned after his TNA stint was with Y2J on Raw. And what did Cesaro do to be in the dog house? RVD can be used to take younger talent to the top(why not a lengthy program with Mr. Wyatt?), and Cesaro should’ve been elevated alongside Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman in his corner. WWE screwed this all up. The match was average and left a lousy taste in my mouthRead More

This past Sunday we witnessed the biggest beat down of the summer. Brock Lesnar destroyed this generation’s biggest hero in brutal fashion. It wasn’t even close. Seth Rollins might be the first Money in the Bank holder that’s going to let his contract expire and I don’t blame him. This is exactly what WWE needed for Brock Lesnar. He proved to the world that he is indeed a beast that needs to be conquered. Whoever that person is will surely get the biggest rub of the century. Until then, whoRead More

The Reign Of The Beast: Who Will Conquer Brock Lesnar

The prophecy has been fulfilled. Over the last few weeks Paul Heyman has been telling us that at Summerslam his client, Brock Lesnar, would both victimise and conquer John Cena and become the new WWE champion. Well, it happened. And it happened in a way that I believe will have shocked most wrestling fans – even those who predicted a Lesnar victory last Sunday. I myself am one such fan, and can even lay claim to predicting the sheer scale of the beat down and mauling inflicted upon Cena inRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE SummerSlam 2014

It’s meant to be the hottest event of the summer, but was it any good? That’s what I’m hoping to find out by viewing this year’s Summerslam, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with the first title match of the evening as Dolph Ziggler challenged the Miz for the Intercontinental title. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen reports saying that the powers that be are reluctant to push Ziggler these daysRead More

This is about how the life of a WWE diva is truly the definition of glamour, the pure joy of being a woman (in show business… And just in general), and other lies. Let me paint a picture for you… As I sit here writing this epic piece of reality, I’m wearing a tight pair of high waisted spandex leggings tucked into spikey stilettos. My push up bra is putting in work under my cropped denim vest. (I’m very close to looking like I’m wearing a slutty Canadian tuxedo). MyRead More

A few weeks ago on RAW we all heard the first ‘boring’ chants from a WWE audience in referent to a Bray Wyatt promo, this got me thinking about his recent run since his feud with Daniel Bryan and his ultimate loss to John Cena. I’ve seen a lot of fans on Twitter playing up the usual ‘Cena burial’ argument which brought me to write about what I think WWE should do with Wyatt and his family, why I feel like people are classing his step down from the mainRead More

Recently it was announced that former ROH & PWG World Champion Kevin Steen had signed with WWE. While there are alot of us who are familar with Mr. Wrestling, I’m sure there are many members of the WWE Universe who aren’t. And for that reason, I’d like to formally introduce the WWE Universe to “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare.” Kevin Steen is a man who has been making a name for himself over the past decade on the Independent Scene. From PWG to ROH, he’s worked his ass off and dominated theRead More

Looking At WWE Superstar Roman Reigns: Can He Wrestle?

It has become a staple chant of the current WWE crowd. The famous “You Can’t Wrestle” chant is the equivalent of the Red Sox fans telling a Yankee pitcher that, “He Can’t Pitch.” Only difference is in baseball, there is a scoreboard. There are things like ERA and these things can be measured by numbers. In wrestling, this can be seen, but it is a very intuitive kind of thing. I know when a guy can’t wrestle, and when someone just isn’t a technical master. For example, Cesaro can wrestle,Read More

Is TNA Impact Wrestling Doomed?

The rumors that surround TNA and its future have been running wild on the internet. Alleged stories of employees not getting paid, TV deals falling through and top talent searching for employment elsewhere have brought many wrestling fans to the conclusion that this could be TNA’s last year as a company.Read More

When you think about the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, many names are thrown around. Men like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, The Rock & Shawn Michaels have all etched their names and legacies into the history books in ways that other talent simply couldn’t, immortalising each superstar as a true icon in wrestling. In this article, I will outline why I feel The Undertaker is head and shoulders above each and every one of these men, and why The Deadman is the greatest professional wrestler in history. Longevity andRead More

It’s been a while since The Two Sheds Review has been seen online. Other commitments, some welcome, some unwelcome, as well as sheer tiredness have kept me away from watching an industry I’ve been following for most of my near 43 years on this planet. But with my schedule about to become a little more settled it’s time to jump right back in, and there’s no better place to re-start than in the world of Progress, the hottest ticket in Britain at the moment, as we take a look atRead More
