    Hi, I’m Ryan Nemeth. You might remember me as “Briley Pierce” the mouthy, know-it-all, former WWE Developmental Tag-Team Champion, or as “Grandma Dottie” the sexed-up octogenarian from @TheGoldenGals. As part of a creative installment plan for my crushing student loan payments, I’m now required to write a blog for PWMania.com. Enjoy. “He’s Still Got It” Ryan Nemeth     I recently had the good fortune of meeting professional wrestling legend Johnny “Cadillac” Nilson (aka “The Squirt”) and chewing the proverbial fat with him. As many wrestling fans fondly recall, Nilson was aRead More

Welcome to another edition of Official’s View with Wes Adams exclusively on PWMania.com. I didn’t watch Summerslam (sue me), but I was glad to see that my prediction of Daniel Bryan winning came true…sort of. It doesn’t look like the immediate aftermath will be as good as the Bret Hart Summerslam 1991 victory I had compared it too in my last column. Geez, imagine had Bret lost the Intercontinental title on Prime Time Wrestling the next night! Anyway, on to the column… This summer I took a job, in aRead More

Hello everybody, and welcome to The Justin Credible report exclusively on PWMania.com. What a week for the WWE. Summer Slam is in the books, and there is so much to talk about. First leading into the PPV in LA, Darren Young comes out to TMZ that he is gay. As you know WWE got a ton of free mainstream press heading into their second biggest PPV of the year. I’m happy for Darren, and I applaud his courage. On the other hand, there is no way that this was justRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC Shogun vs Sonnen

It’s time to step into the Octagon once again as we take a look at the UFC’s debut show on Fox Sports, a show headlined by Shogun Rua and Chael Sonnen and shown in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on BT Sport here in Britain. The broadcast began with the prelims and the featherweight encounter between Diego Brandao and Daniel Pineda. This certainly was an interesting three rounder. There wasn’t much of a feeling out period at the beginning as they put together some nice exchanges, withRead More

Mike Shannon’s WWE Raw Review – August 19, 2013

-After an explosive and awesome SummerSlam last night, how will WWE screw it up? LET’S FIND OUT! -Live from Anaheim, CA (home of great weather and ugly people) -So, with huge stories like Daniel Bryan/Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar/CM Punk, who kicks Raw off? If you said John Cena then punch yourself in the face and give yourself a gold star. Cena puts over Daniel Bryan huge and announces that his elbow swelling is the result of a torn muscle and he will have to take 4-6 months off toRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Summerslam 2013 Reaction

Rob Van Dam defeats Dean Ambrose by DQ when the Shield gets involved. Big Show and Mark Henry make the save. Is anyone surprised by this? The Shield have taken a backseat to other storylines as of late, but they haven’t lost their push. I don’t see Ambrose losing the belt anytime soon. Solid match, but too short to be anything memorable, especially with that finish. Bray Wyatt defeats Kane with his sister-abigail finisher after getting help from Rowan and Harper. Kane is taken to the back by the FamilyRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Survivor Series 2012

It’s time to dip into the ever-growing pile of WWE DVDs sent to me by the good people at Fremantle Media, and this time around we’re going back in time to last November and the show with the much changed main event, Survivor Series 2012. The show began with a traditional Survivor Series match with Brodus Clay, Justin Gabriel, Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio taking on Tensai, Primo, Epico, and Darren Young and Titus O’Neil of the Prime Time Players. This was apparently a last-minute addition to theRead More

Dr. Wrestling:Angle, Tito, and Sabin

It’s the competition of the wrestling business that provides a better product, but after the past few weeks of Impact, it’s obvious that the wrestling business will go as far as the WWE takes it because TNA will not be a competitive product in the wrestling industry. That being said, the WWE product has been really solid the past few months and Summer Slam seems like a really good card. Sadly, there’s a reason the Total Divas reality show gets a better rating than Impact. Earlier this year, TNA madeRead More

Coming at you from San Jose, CA, it’s WWE Smackdown! Michael Cole welcomes us to the show and tells us about two matches tonight: We have Big Show, Mark Henry, and Rob Van Dam taking on the Shield, and we have Daniel Bryan facing Wade Barrett in a no-DQ match. ^Sounds like two fantastic matches to make for a fantastic show overall! The beginning intros are interrupted by the Wyatt Family. Wyatt sits in his rocking chair in the center of the ring and cuts a creepy promo. He endsRead More

The Two Sheds Review: ROH Ring of Hardcore

Since it’s inception in 2002 Ring of Honor has become known for it’s outstanding technical classics featuring the likes of Bryan Danielson, Austin Aries, Nigel McGuinness and many, many more. But there are times when a rivalry becomes so heated that a technical straight up wrestling match just won’t do. This is where encounters such as street fights, barbed wire matches, cage matches, last man standing and even a Cage of Death match come into play, and ROH has held many of these matches over the years. Now they’ve chosenRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Summerslam 2013 Predictions

Rumored Match: Big Show and Mark Henry vs Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns JT: If this goes down, I think the Shield could lose the gold. Big Show is in the best shape of his life and Mark Henry has done some of the best work of his career as of late, so why not give them the straps for a brief run and make for some compelling television? Henry and Show win the belts if the match goes down. Pre-Show Match: United States Champion Dean AmbroseRead More

The Cahoon Run Down: Thoughts on Big E. Langston

What’s up everybody? I’m Geddy Cahoon. You might remember me from such films as Christmas Ape andChristmas Ape Goes to Summer Camp. Today, I wanna talk about volatility in wrestling and Dolph Ziggler’s ex-bodyguard, Big E. Langston. Volatility is perhaps the only constant of pro wrestling and pro wrestling fandom. Things can and will change at ANY given moment. Champions, gimmicks, and even opinions. I’m a very strongly opinionated guy, which means that while I voice a lot of my opinions very loudly and strongly and sometimes angrily, I’m just as quick to changeRead More

Welcome to this week’s Justin Credible report exclusively on PWMania.com. Monday night was the last Raw before Summer Slam 13, and from what I see it’s typical WWE two match show. The line up so far WWE title John Cena vs. Daniel Bryan with HHH as special guest ref, CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar, World title Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian, Ring of Fire match Kane vs. Bray Wyatt, and Natalya vs. Brie Bella. RVD won the 20 man battle royal for a shot at the US title vs. DeanRead More

For millions of fans worldwide, this Sunday means only one thing…The Biggest Party of the Summer ©, SUMMERSLAM! This year’s version features something that many online fans have been clamoring for years, as Daniel Bryan gets a well-deserved shot at the WWE Championship in the main event against John Cena. Hard to believe it’s been three years ago since Cena reintroduced him in the main event SummerSlam battle against The Nexus. I couldn’t help but be in awe at the reversal of roles since that time. I spent a goodRead More

The Two Sheds Review: TNA One Night Only: 10 Reunion

It’s time to head over to the Impact Zone once more as we take a look at the latest in TNA’s One Night Only series, 10 Reunion, shown this past Wednesday night on Challenge here in Britain. The show began with three way action between Sonjay Dutt, Petey Williams and Kenny King. It’s always a good idea to start off a show with some X Division action, and it was filled with quality action. It was also nice to see Williams and Dutt in this environment again. All three menRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Smackdown Analysis 08/09/13

Smackdown opens with Randy Orton taking on Rob Van Dam! We see eleven minutes of the match minus the commercial. Orton delivers an RKO when RVD misses the five star frogsplash and gets the three count. ^Awesome opener! Orton’s always giving us good performances these days, and RVD has been solid since his return. What a great WRESTLING start to the Friday night A-show! Miz has AJ Lee and Big E. Langston as his guests for MizTV. AJ says Big E. is her best friend and he’s a really goodRead More

First up were the preliminaries, beginning with the flyweight encounter between Ian McCall and Iliarde Santos.

Thunder And Lightning: WWE Raw Analysis 08/05/13

~Stephanie McMahon/Daniel Bryan/Vince McMahon “makeover” segment – Vince has Wade Barrett come out to “shave” Daniel Bryan’s beard~ ML: This segment was a little longer than I would have liked but it had some hilarious spots. Vince McMahon’s “joking” asshole demeanor is hilarious at times and he works it well. The overall segment was effective it what it was supposed to accomplish with Vince continuing to question whether Daniel Bryan is “worthy” of being WWE Champion. Wade Barrett’s involvement was interesting, but after the outcome of Daniel Bryan simply dominatingRead More
