Death of Wrestling: Survivor Series

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. It’s the final quarter of the year, Christmas, believe it or not, is right around the corner, but first we have one of the WWE’s signature PPVs: Survivor Series. As a kid growing up IRead More

Thunder And Lightning: TNA Turning Point 2012 Preview

Thunder and Lightning are back for TNA’s Turning Point pay per view, so let’s jump right in! Knockouts Tag Team Championship: ODB and Eric Young vs Jesse Godderz and Tara ML: With EY’s tweet about being done with TNA, and the fact that TNA seems to think that this Tara and Godderz storyline is actually good, I’m expecting this match to not be much of a match at all. These tag team titles have been irrelevant for so long that TNA just needs to drop them altogether. Prediction: Tara &Read More

Dave Scott – Glasgow Show

Hey there guys! Dave Scott here with a later than usual column! The reason for my lateness is that my laptop decided to not work and I’ve had to resort to writing this bad boy on my phone. Yes on my phone, it was either my iPad or on my phone and my Blackberry seems to be the better option. So if you have been following me on Twitter you would know that this week has been very wrestling based for me. First up I had my usual Monday nightRead More

Michael’s Musing’s – WWE 13 Review

I have been a WWE fan for the past 15 years and I have every WWE game for the past seven years and the evolution of the wrestling gaming genre is like the evolution of man…it is very, very slow. WWE 13 is another step towards the perfect WWE game. The Graphics: Much like every game in the WWE genre, the graphics have gotten better as the game progresses. The WWE superstars look like who they are supposed to be and the arena look much like they would on TV.Read More

From Across the Pond
It’s been two weeks since I last wrote something for PWMania.com, so I’d like to apologise for that. I’ve been busy reformatting a website, which basically took over my life from the end of October until this past Sunday. The only break I had from it was to watch Hell in a Cell. It’s done now though, so your regularly scheduled FATP’s are back from here on in. This past weekend, I went out and bought my FIRST wrestling DVD. Yup, you read that properly: my FIRST wrestling DVD. SeemsRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 11/05/12

Miz and Paul Heyman are shown backstage. Miz is furious at Punk for ditching him last week on Raw and quits the team for Survivor Series. ^Interesting way to start the show. Perhaps this is the start of a Miz face turn? Maybe this is WWE’s way of continuing to bury the Miz while taking the opportunity to add more star power to Team Punk. Those masked guys and R-Truth defeat Antonio Cesaro and the Prime Time Players in a six man tag. Truth gets the pin after using littleRead More

Death of Wrestling: Bad PPVs

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. Last week I spoke about HIAC shaping up to be a pretty poor PPV with the main event certain to leave a bad taste in our mouths, and for once the WWE didn’t disappoint! IRead More

The Two Sheds Review: Cage Warriors 49

We’re making a quick return to the British MMA arena for our next review as we go back in time to last weekend and the St. David’s Hall in Cardiff for Cage Warriors 49, shown this past Wednesday night on Sky Sports here in Britain. The broadcast began in the lightweight division as Paul Redmond went up against Lewis Long. There was very little striking in this mainly ground-based affair. Long took control early on, turning Redmond’s takedown attempt into an impressive judo throw. However, his stint on the groundRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 10/29/12

CM Punk comes out with Paul Heyman to brag about his victory over Ryback at HIAC. Mick Foley interrupts him and Punk continues to adamantly deny having anything to do with the crooked ref, Brad Maddox. Foley and Punk exchange words and they end up settling on a classic elimination match at the Survivor Series ppv. Punk says whoever Foley picks for his team…but then gets interrupted by Ryback coming out. Punk leaves the ring. ^I like the solid opening. I also liked the idea that Mick Foley was goingRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Hell in a Cell

A new player entered the main event scene as WWE presented their latest pay-per-view, Hell in a Cell, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Sports here in Britain. The show began with a battle of former champions as Alberto Del Rio went up against Randy Orton. This proved to be a highly intense and enjoyable encounter. Del Rio began his night’s work by working over Orton’s arm in preparation for his cross arm breaker. It was a great display from the Mexican asRead More

Dave Scott – WWE Hell In A Cell Aftermath

Hey there guys! Dave Scott back for your reading pleasure. Over the last few weeks I for one have been very interested in what has been going on in the WWE primarily in the WWE title feud. With this we had the opportunity to see a new star pushed within a brand new feud. This is the first time in quite a while so many questions and theories were being thrown out by wrestling fans about what the finish to the match would be, but with every prediction everyone stillRead More

I feel bad. I feel bad for those of you who spent your hard-earned dollars on the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view last night, because what you witnessed was the very definition of a “placeholder.” You see, with John Cena out of action due to injury, WWE had to come up with a backup plan for their main event match without losing their storyline of Punk vs. Cena. Hence, we got Ryback vs. Cena in one of most useless Hell in a Cell matches in history. After tons of stalling,Read More

The Two Sheds Review: Cage Contender 15

British MMA is on the agenda once again, and with the help of Premier Sports’ free to air weekend we’re going back in time a week or so to the King’s Hall in Belfast for Cage Contender 15. Shown this past Saturday night in two parts, part one concentrated on the preliminaries. The first three fights were amateur encounters, fought over three three minute rounds, beginning with Gerard Gilmore against Conor White in the welterweight division. This certainly proved to be an action packed opener. They began with a coupleRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Hell In A Cell 2012 Reaction

Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio. This match was everything I wanted it to be and proved why both these men are top contenders for the World Heavyweight Championship. Not a four star match, but a solid three and a half. The tag team champions retain the gold against Team Rhodes Scholars after Kane gets himself disqualified. This match was pretty good right up until the rip-off finish. I understand WWE not wanting to take the titles off Kane and Dbry, and I understand WWE not wanting to make RhodesRead More

Death of Wrestling: Terrible Booking

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. Hell in the Cell, in general and my opinion, is not the best PPV line up in recent history; there are a few matches that I want to see, but it’s not like I wouldRead More

Thunder And Lightning’s PPW HOF: Second Inductee

We start this tribute column with Mike Lightning’s piece, followed by my own. Enjoy! When names were discussed on which superstars to include for nominations for the Thunder & Lightning Pure Pro-Wrestling Hall of Fame, our second inductee, Chris Benoit was immediately mentioned. Despite anyone’s personal feeling about the man, no one can deny Benoit’s pure wrestling ability and athleticism in the ring. Benoit was one of the most popular mat technicians of our time. He was also one of the most respected wrestlers in the business by fellow wrestlers,Read More
