rock-cena
There has been a lot of talk online following last night’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view about how fans don’t want to see a rematch between John Cena and the Rock at WrestleMania XXIX. Right, why would WWE want a repeat of the highest grossing match in modern wrestling history? The Rock against John Cena is a match-up of the two biggest stars in wrestling right now. Sure, CM Punk is an internet darling and an excellent worker. However, he doesn’t have the mainstream appeal that John Cena and the Rock. PunkRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Elimination Chamber 2013 Reaction

Brodus and Tensai defeat Team Rhodes Scholars: I don’t like this, but this is what we are being subjected to. As long as Rhodes and Sandow develop some good singles feuds, I guess I can be okay with WWE wanting a dancing duo as their new favorite tag team. At this rate, I’m guessing Brodus and Tensai will end up with the Tag Titles before long. It was an okay match, but nothing special; I’m sure a lot of the kids in the audience enjoyed it. Alberto Del Rio defeatsRead More

Death of Wrestling: Aces and Eights II

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. Apologies for my emotional splurging last week, this week I promise it’s business as usual. (big sigh) Aces and Eights (bigger sigh). It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was singing this storylinesRead More

The Perfect Storm: WWE Elimination Chamber 2013 Preview

Welcome to the Perfect Storm’s 2013 Elimination Chamber thoughts and predictions! This month, we’ve got a new face in Jee-S writing for us! Jee-S and myself are joined as usual by Mike Lightning, KP, and JBru. We hope you enjoy the read! Brodus Clay & Tensai vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (Pre-Show) Jee-S: The outcome of this match will influence a lot of things. I personally think that splitting up Rhodes & Sandow was a terrible mistake from the WWE for two reasons: first of all, they were easily the topRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Smackdown Analysis 02/15/13

Big Show comes out to open the show. Show says Alberto Del Rio has never pinned him and never will. Chris Jericho interrupts and comes to the ring. Y2J points out that if he wins the Chamber on Sunday and Show wins back the title, then it will be Jericho vs Show at WrestleMania for the World Heavyweight Championship(and Jericho will win). Show says if he faces Jericho at WrestleMania, it will be the last WM appearance of his career. Booker T interrupts and makes Jericho vs Show in theRead More

It just seems like we had a major pay per view and now we are being pushed into another one. The Royal Rumble feels like last week to me and now we have the Elimination Chamber upon us. The WWE does this from time to time, where they jam together two pay per views and then they wonder why the second one always struggles to get a high a buy rate….which is what leads us to our first of five predictions about Elimination Chamber. 1. Elimination Chamber will be theRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UCMMA 27

It’s time to step into the world of British MMA once again for a kind of déjà vu review as we take a look at another DVD release from the good people at Ultimate Challenge MMA. The DVD in question is UCMMA 27. We begin with the preliminaries and the middleweight encounter between Kester Mumba and Mark Armstrong. This certainly was a very interesting encounter. Both fighters began by testing the waters a little before the action went to the ground. Once they got there Armstrong took controlling after reversingRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 02/11/13

Paul Heyman cuts a promo to start the show. Paul says he won’t stand in CM Punk’s way of regaining the WWE Championship, and therefore he must say goodbye. Punk comes out looking puzzled. Punk convinces Heyman to be in his corner this Sunday and they embrace. ^This felt like a legitimate time waster. Heyman saying he’s leaving just so Punk can talk him out of it. What’s the point? Mark Henry destroys the Great Khali. He lays out Hornswoggle after the match. ^Henry is still a monster. WWE won’tRead More

The Two Sheds Review: Bryan Danielson vs The World

Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing some of the Ring of Honor DVD releases where they paid tribute to, or cashed in on, depending on your point of view, those stars who have gone on to grace bigger stages. Now they’ve done it again, and following on from their look at the ROH career of the then-Bryan Danielson and future Daniel Bryan they’ve released another two disc set where he faces stars from around the globe. The release in question is Danielson vs. The World. And there’s noRead More

Where Does Jack Swagger Fit on the Road to WrestleMania?

When Jack Swagger debuted in WWE, it seemed like the former NCAA star was primed for success, being pushed right off the bat on the ECW brand with a six month long undefeated streak and winning the ECW World Heavyweight Championship just over five months after his debut. After a successful run in ECW, Swagger was moved to the Raw brand, where he’d win the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania XXVI, granting him a future World Title shot over the course of that year. “The All-American American”Read More

Greetings to all… It’s David Davis with my weekly blog: Death of Wrestling.

ThunderStruck: WWE Smackdown Analysis 02/08/13

Big Show opens Smackdown with a promo. He whines and moans about being attacked by Alberto Del Rio. Big Show says it’s pointless for ADR to be suspended for one night, and Booker T is responsible for how Big Show has been treated. Booker comes out and tells Big Show to worry about his opponent tonight, Kane. ^It almost feels like WWE doesn’t know what to do with Big Show anymore. He cuts a pretty decent promo but his character in general is starting to bore me already. Booker TRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC 156 Aldo vs Edgar

It’s time to step into the Octagon once again as we take a look back at UFC 156, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain. This five hour marathon began with the preliminary fights and the lightweight encounter between Yves Edwards and Isaac Vallie-Flagg. I really enjoyed this one. We saw all of the aspects of the MMA game in a fight filled with top notch action. Both fighters put on good displays in the striking department early on, and althoughRead More

Tea Time with Liam – Predictability

Hello everybody, Liam here once again with another edition of Tea Time with Liam, still the laziest column around on the internet. Well I’ve already failed my new years resolution in that I wanted to write more often, but in the next few weeks, and hopefully with the help of some of you readers, I hope to change that. It’s been a steady start to the new year in both WWE with a good yet pretty predictable (you’ll see that word a lot in this column) Royal Rumble. The RoadRead More
