SmugStuff: Can Ring Of Honor Survive Weekly Television

Arguably the most popular independent wrestling promotion in the country today is Ring Of Honor. Ring Of Honor is a company that started back in 2002 and featured many great matches and talent that were full of heart and charisma. Many of whom went on to be successful. Wrestlers like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan (then Bryan Danielson), AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and so many more have all come through or started in Ring Of Honor at some point or another. Now ROH has changed a lot over the years andRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UCMMA 30

British MMA is on the agenda once again, and having recently finished my mini-series of Ultimate Challenge DVD reviews we’re going to jump straight back into Dave O’Donnell’s cage with a look at their latest TV show, UCMMA 30, shown this past Wednesday night on Sky Sports here in Britain. The show began with kickboxing action as Aurelijus Kerpe went up against Andre McIntyre in the UK1 middleweight division. This was very interesting. The feeling out period only lasted a few moments and came to an abrupt end when KerpeRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UCMMA 26

It’s British MMA time again, and for this review we’re going to delve into the pile of DVDs sent to me by the good people at Ultimate Challenge MMA. The final review of this mini-series sees us going back in time to this past February for UCMMA 26. We begin with the preliminary fights, starting with Florian Calin and Stephen Stanley in the featherweight division. This certainly proved to be an interesting encounter. The first two rounds followed an almost identical pattern. After the initial feeling out periods Calin scoredRead More

Like a Santino Marella, “Milan miracle”, I am back for another edition of wrestling amusement and observation. So grab your popcorn and sit down at ringside and let the people behind you actually see and read what has to be said. A personal assistant for AJ? Well this is out of the minds of the PGWWE a personal assistant for AJ Lee, why? It’s not needed. AJ is a feisty little GM who is fully aware of what she is doing, and if the 10/1 edition of Raw was anyRead More

I want to start this post by mentioning that I am a fan of Ring Of Honor and I have been for many years. The company is a good promotion and has good talent but with more independents comping up and getting recognition the competition grows stronger. Anyone who grew up in the 1990’s remembers having at least two major wrestling companies and for a few years even three. WCW and WWF battled head-to-head every Monday in a ratings war that came to be known as “The Monday Night Wars”.Read More

Tea Time with Liam: The Fuss about Ratings

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to what is fast becoming the laziest wrestling column ever, Tea Time with Liam. I am of course Liam and as always I come to you from that tiny Island known as The United Kingdom. Once again I’ve been lazy and inconsistent with my articles. But in a funny way, I’ve actually became consistent with the inconsistency . Does that even make sense? I have no clue, Will any of this article make sense? Once again I have no clue. Let me know.Read More

ThunderStruck: WWE Raw Analysis 10/08/12

John Cena comes out to hype the crowd and says he missed everyone last week. He gets mostly cheers. He talks about the show tonight and then talks about wanting to face Punk at Hell in a Cell. ^Cena should never talk about another man’s nipples; it’s awkward. Aside from that, he delivered a strong promo to kick off the show and the crowd seemed to respond favorably. Ryback defeats Primo and Epico in a handicap match using the simultaneous shell shock. ^Good for Ryback. Once again, terrible for PrimoRead More

WWE Raw Review – October 8, 2012

-We are LIVE from Sacramento, CA (home of the Queens) -As advertised, John Cena (with that goofy athletic tape that does nothing on his arm) kicks us off and immediately launches into goofy jokes about half the roster…this is why I hate this guy. He eventually turns his attention to CM Punk and calls him a wuss because he won’t face Cena at Hell in a Cell. HE ALREADY BEAT YOU THREE TIMES, how does this storyline make sense at all? Cena says goodbye as Ryback’s music hits for theRead More

Dave Scott – Unstable

Hey there guys, gals and everything in between, Dave Scott reporting for my usual Monday night duty! Now the last couple of weeks I have been very inactive in the internet wrestling world and I have not been following it all to the extent that I usually would. There is two things that it could be down to, it is either due to me not enjoying what has been getting put out or it might just be that Fifa 13 has engulfed pretty much my entire life outside of workingRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC Browne vs Bigfoot

It’s time to head to the Octagon for the third time in as many weeks as we take a look at the UFC’s latest show on FX, shown live in the early hours of this past Saturday morning on ESPN here in Britain. The broadcast began in the welterweight division as Josh Neer went up against Justin Edwards. Sadly British viewers were blighted by poor picture quality here, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the action. After a very brief feeling out period Edwards jumped up and locked inRead More

Death of Wrestling: Good VS Evil

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. What’s really good, people? My thought this week is on a form of storytelling so ancient it’s what the bible is based on: the age old story of GOOD vs. EVIL. It doesn’t matter ifRead More

First let me open by saying this is my first article here on PWMania.com but I am not at all new to the writing business.

On Saturday, October 6th, Tommy Dreamer will host his inaugural ‘House Of Hardcore’ show. I am going to give an in depth look at how the show could succeed and what the show needs to be andRead More

Aces & Eights taking hostages: Isn’t this what the WWE was criticized for with the Muhammad Hassad incident with the Undertaker??

The Cahoon Run Down: RAW Review 10.1.12

Hello all, Geddy Cahoon here with another RAW review for your reading pleasure. Without any further adieu, let’s hop into this! Opening Segment: I’m not sure how I felt about this opening. It ran for a really a long time, but I don’t actually remember a lot of it. Apparently it ran about 7 minutes longer than it was supposed to. That does not shock me. It dragged by and nothing really happened. It’s not like Ziggler and Punk are going to feud or anything. It was just like, “HeyRead More
