FATP: WWE WrestleMania 29 Predictions

It’s WrestleMania week! Is everyone excited? It’s the time of year where we’re supposed to be excited about the showcase of the immortals, but I’m just not feeling it this year. Is it just me?

This week, I’m going to dish out my predictions for WWE’s showpiece PPV. I know I don’t normally post these, but it’sRead More

The Perfect Storm: WWE WrestleMania 29 Preview

Welcome to our WrestleMania 29 preview! I’m joined this time around by the full crew, and there is a TON of content here! We hope you enjoy reading our thoughts for WWE’s biggest show of the year! Pre Show Match: Intercontinental Championship: Wade Barrett vs The Miz ML: This match and feud is an afterthought. As much as I love the fact that the IC Title is being featured, I HATE the fact it’s the pre-show match. And I HATE even more that Antonio Cesaro isn’t featured on the WrestleManiaRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UCMMA 28

It’s time to dip into the pile of DVDs sent to be by the good people at Ultimate Challenge MMA once again as we go back in time to last May with two championships on the line at UCMMA 28. We begin with action from the heavyweight division between Paul Taylor and Scott Saward. This one didn’t last long. Saward used his natural height and reach advantage to good effect early on when he connected with a few good body shots, but when Taylor connected with a big left theRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 04/01/13

Raw starts with John Cena coming to the ring. He gets a ton of boos. He says the arena tonight is full of Cena-crats and Rock-publicans. He hypes their match this Sunday and says he respects the Rock. Cena says the Rock’s time is up and his time is now and that the Rock will experience failure this Sunday. The crowd starts a boring chant. He goes on to say that he will shock the world this Sunday and the champ is here. The crowd boos some more. ^This promoRead More

Mike Shannon’s WWE Raw Review – April 1, 2013

-We are LIVE (and sold out) from Washington DC (the capital of the Free World and home to random violence). -John Cena kicks us off and receives a definite heel reaction. An intense, but somewhat rambling promo basically says that the Rock will experience failure at WrestleMania and Cena won’t replace the new belt. The crowd gets on Cena with a “boring” chant, so John goes total heel and proclaims himself better than the Rock because the champ is here. If anyone thinks Cena isn’t winning the title at WrestleMania,Read More

Death of Wrestling: What Happened To The Tag Teams?

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. Firstly, Happy Easter! Secondly, and more importantly, my thoughts and prayers go out to Ric Flair and his entire family… Okay on with the blog and this week I’m going to honour a promise toRead More
WWE Main Event Review 03/27/13 By Jee-S Kane beat Antonio Cesaro via Chokeslam. Thoughts: That was very entertaining! Despite Cesaro losing again, there wasn’t anything wrong with this match: good action, great technique and good storytelling. Kane is one of those veterans that can make anyone look good in the ring and Cesaro is a world class wrestler; what more could you ask? This is how superstars like these two can shine: with matches longer than 10 minutes! Cesaro is now yodeling on his way to the ring and duringRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Top 100 Raw Moments Part 2: Raw 1000

In my last review we took a look at another of WWE’s recent DVD releases, Top 100 Raw Moments. I have it the big thumbs up, even though I didn’t review all of this particular collection. That’s because the third disc contained Raw’s 1,000th show, and as I’ve never seen this show in full before I thought it would be a good idea to give it the full treatment right now….. After an initial appearance from our esteemed leader Mr. McMahon it was on to a fun segment involving theRead More
With Wrestlemania just over a week away I thought I’d do something fun and Wrestlemania related before I do my  prediction column next week. So, this week I decided I’d write a piece about who I think the real Mr. Wrestlemania is, that’s right Shawn Michaels you can’t just give yourself that title. You have to leave that up to some random writer on the internet who will use a completely arbitrary and biased criteria. I’ll rate the top 5 Wrestlemania performers of all time with unclear criteria because wellRead More
When you think of pro wrestling, Hulk Hogan comes to mind in an instant. Without a shadow of a doubt, Hulk Hogan is the most iconic figure in the history of the business. Putting those facts aside, I’d like to discuss Hogan’s career as a whole and talk about the reasons that I admire and respect the man. After we take that stroll down memory lane, I want to discuss some of the problems that I have with the Hulkster. Off we go! 5 Reasons I Love Hulk Hogan: TheRead More
I have a little confession for you, although long-time readers may already know what I’m about to say. I’m no longer a regular viewer of Raw. I do catch the occasional snippet, mainly on the highlight shows, but the times when I go out of my way to watch WWE’s flagship show are long gone. However, there was a time when I would move heaven and earth to watch this show, especially during the now-fabled Monday Night Wars. So it was with a great deal of anticipation that I satRead More
A young, fresh debutant takes on the old veteran…not only for bragging rights, but also to prove that’s there’s one big dog in the building, and it’s none other, than the latest Mexican Sensation, Alberto Del Rio… Will Rey Mysterio be the one to topple Alberto and send him back, or will Alberto Del Rio defeat the veteran, and prove to the world that there’s a new Aristocrat in town? In wrestling, there have been multiple stories of how a new star debuts, and looks to topple the previous veteran.Read More

FATP: WWE’s Midcard – Make Us Care Again

Just when you thought it was safe to trawl through the columns section, FATP makes its return to! It’s been a while since I’ve posted an edition of FATP. Some people have been asking why. I suppose I’d better explain things before I get on with today’s topic. Roughly 6 weeks ago, I decided to go on an indefinite hiatus from writing about wrestling. It was the week of WWE Elimination Chamber. I’d done my review of the PPV for Wrestling Rambles and written the pieces I’d already scheduledRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 03/25/13

CM Punk opens Raw with Paul Heyman to talk about the streak and how he is going to end it. He talks about the Undertaker being at a psychological disadvantage. The lights go out and Undertaker attacks Punk but he gets away. ^Punk’s promo work was up to par here and the whole segment was very entertaining. Taker looked pretty good as well, and that makes me optimistic for the potential brilliance of their match in two weeks. With an opening that strong, it makes you feel like Undertaker andRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Night of Champions 2012

It’s time for one of those déjà vu type of reviews as we take a look at a DVD release of a show I’ve already reviewed. This time around we’re heading into WWE territory as yours truly begins reviewing official WWE releases, as supplied by their new UK distributor Fremantle Media, and for the first review we’ll be going back to last September and Night of Champions. The show began with the Miz defending the Intercontinental title against Rey Mysterio, Cody Rhodes and Sin Cara. Fast-paced action was the orderRead More

Death of Wrestling: Park, Park & Park

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. The one thing that unites all wrestling fans is amazing matches and, by and large, it doesn’t really matter who has them. We’re on the road to Wrestlemania and so the Undertaker is naturally onRead More

Adzop – ’13 So Far

Hi everyone.. Apologies for my lengthy absence. With WrestleMania 29 on the horizon, and some of the things that have been going on in WWE, I thought it was time to chime in with some of my thoughts. The Royal Rumble feels like a long time ago. John Cena winning the Rumble match pretty much told us that The Rock would win the WWE Championship in the main event against CM Punk. I expected to see Cena come out and give The Rock a slow clap after the match –Read More
