Guest Column: WWE WrestleMania 29 In The History Books

By Alan Jay – WrestleMania week is over and after all the events and predictions and post mania discussion – what are we left with? Well WWE is left with a LOT of money from the week! NJ and I guess NY to a point made some amazing revenue also. The fans have the memories – good or bad – you decide. This year Axxess, the Hall of Fame, Mania, and Raw all sold out and for fans of Indy wrestling or just wanted to relive the old days youRead More

FATP: Is Kofi Kingston mid-card 4 life?

Thanks for joining me for this week’s edition of FATP, which is exclusive to PWMania.com. Welcome along for the ride. I got a lot of great feedback about last week’s article, where I talked about the curse of the WWE United States Championship. The general consensus was that it does seem to be a title that’s just given to wrestlers that WWE have no clue what to do with. It’s quite ironic that the United States Championship ties in to what I want to talk about today. I’m beginning toRead More
dynamite-kid
He is the greatest wrestler the United Kingdom has ever produced, and my second favourite wrestler of all time. He’s inspired countless others over the past 30 years or so, and now he’s getting The Two Sheds Review treatment. The man in question is Tommy Billington, the Dynamite Kid, and courtesy of my good friends at the British Wrestling DVDs website we’re now going to take a look at some of his matches with the first two volumes of The Best of the Dynamite Kid series. The majority of theseRead More

The Wrestling Genius: Breaking Bad and the WWE

It is obvious that I love wrestling, seeing as I watch and write about it. However, it isn’t my favorite thing on TV. No, that distinction goes to Breaking Bad. No show is as tense, funny, or well acted as Breaking Bad. What’s that, you want to know my five favorite non-wrestling shows on TV, ok I’ll tell you. 5. Mad Men/Game of Thrones 4. Sons of Anarchy 3. Walking Dead 2. Dexter 1. Breaking Bad I can’t help but find parallels between wrestling and everyday life. I can’t helpRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 04/15/13

*Before we start this, I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the attacks in Boston. God bless you all. Big Show is defeated in a handicap match by Randy Orton and Sheamus. Orton gets the win an RKO after Sheamus nails the brogue kick on Show. ^Nice of WWE to start the show with a wrestling match. I find it somewhat odd that it takes two top faces to defeat the Big Show, but the match was a pretty good way toRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC The Ultimate Fighter Finale 17

It’s time to head off into the Octagon to find out just who became the top dog in the 17th finale of the UFC’s Ultimate Fighter, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain. The broadcast began with middleweight action as Bubba McDaniel faced Gilbert Smith. This proved to be a very enjoyable show opener. Although there were some good striking exchanges the best moments came on the ground. Both guys put in good performances there as they jockeyed for position. WhileRead More

Death of Wrestling: Wrestlemania

Greetings to all… It’s David Davis with my weekly blog: Death of Wrestling. For all of those who read this regularly, you will know that this is not a blog about bashing wrestling; it’s a blog of a frustrated fan, who loves the business and wishes that each week it could be a little better. I am a wrestling fan; a fan that likes to mark out to great storylines, booking and matches. So naturally around Wrestlemania time I become like a kid at Christmas. This Wrestlemania was a particularlyRead More

The Two Sheds Review: TNA One Night Only: X-Travaganza

It’s time to head into the Impact Zone as we take a look at TNA’s first One Night Only show, a showcase of the X Division with X-Travaganza, shown this past Wednesday night on Challenge here in Britain. The show began with the steel cage Xscape match, featuring Matt Bentley, Alex Silva, Lince Dorado, Sam Shaw, Puma, Jimmy Rave and Christian York. This was contested under elimination rules, with pins and submissions the order of the day until the last two remained. Then the winner was the first man toRead More

FATP: The Curse of the WWE United States Championship

Thanks for joining me for the latest FATP here on PWMania.com! Well, WrestleMania’s done for another year. Did you enjoy it? I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. It was just kinda, meh. It wasn’t special. It didn’t feel like WrestleMania should you know? There was some good stuff, some OK stuff and some stuff I just didn’t care for, but everyone has their own opinions! I’m sure there were some of you out there who loved it! This week, I’m going to talk about the WWERead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Wrestlemania 29

It was the grand-daddy of them all, the showcase of the immortals as WWE presented Wrestlemania 29, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with six man action as Sheamus, Randy Orton and the Big Show faced the Shield’s Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. This was a nice little opener, and it also gave us an interesting sideline storyline-wise. It started off in the normal way, which was a little surprising because I thoughtRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 04/08/13

John Cena comes out to celebrate being WWE Champion and he gets a loud chorus of boos. He wants to start off the night with a WWE Title match, and out comes Mark Henry. Booker T comes out and says the Rock is entitled to a rematch first. He tells Henry that he can have a title shot if he can beat Cena tonight. ^I expected Henry to be one of the challengers for Cena’s title, but I didn’t anything about the Rock and a rematch being mentioned so soon.Read More

Mike Shannon’s WWE Raw Review – April 8, 2013

-So WrestleMania weekend was an awesome experience and those of you who had the pleasure of following me on Twitter (@MikeShannon22) saw that. -I took over 100 pictures of the whole experience and I will be publishing a photo journal on this site in the next few days. I figure that should be a cool way to go through the whole weekend without boring you with tons and tons of text. And now…TONS AND TONS OF TEXT! -Apparently, The Rock has gone home with an injury, leaving the creative teamRead More

Adzop Reviews – WWE WrestleMania 29. Straw. Camel.

I previewed WrestleMania 29 towards the back end of last week. I expressed my disappointment with the lacklustre build-up, and the lack of intensity on Raw in the weeks leading up to WM29 – but I also held hope that, regardless of those concerns, the show would still be a good one. I will not review each match as is customary in these columns. I am going to try to encapsulate how I felt at WrestleMania 29’s conclusion. The vast majority of the show was good. Not great, but good.Read More

ThunderStruck: WWE WrestleMania 29 Reaction

The Miz defeats Wade Barrett on the pre-show with the figure four leglock to win the Intercontinental Championship: The IC Title history at WrestleMania has all but disappeared in terms of importance, but the Miz and Wade Barrett gave a solid performance(just under ten minutes) that kept the crowd alive. I enjoyed the match, and I’d like to think that WWE will do more with the IC Title this coming year and propel the Miz back into the main event scene by next year’s WrestleMania. The Shield defeats Randy Orton,Read More

The Wrestling Genius: WWE WrestleMania 29 Fake Vegas Bets

It’s that time of year, the flowers are blooming, the birds are returning, and the Superbowl of Wrestling is this weekend. The Showcase of the Immortals gives me an excuse to invite people over, cook hot wings and chili, and drink too much beer. I have a feeling this year’s Wrestlemania will have more “meh” matches than great but the few that will be great will make it worth the $65 and then some. The potential is there for a few matches, specifically one match, to never be forgotten byRead More

The Mike Check – WWE WrestleMania 29 Predictions

Hello My Fellow PWManiacs and welcome to the Wrestlemania edition of The Mike Check. I am here to give you my predictions for WWE’s biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania 29. I would like to start things off with my overall opinion of the show itself based on whats on paper, and it is not a happy one. Usually, WWE has had over three months to build up the entire Wrestlemania card but sadly they have booked the biggest show of the year as if it was Over the LimitRead More
