The Two Sheds Review: UFC Struve vs Miocic

It’s time to step into the Octagon for the second time in two weeks as we take a look back at the UFC’s latest trip to my homeland for their latest Fuel TV show, shown live this past Saturday night on ESPN here in Britain. The broadcast began with welterweight action as Che Mills went up against Duane Ludwig. This one didn’t last long, but what we saw was pretty encouraging, and pretty good. Mills took the fight to the ground early on with a nice trip, and his offenceRead More

Death of Wrestling: Lord Tensai

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

Yo yo yo people… I’ve just got a short blog post this week, which, judging by the comments from last week, I’m sure some of you will be pleased about! But that is why IRead More

Thunder’s WWE B-Show Rundown 09/29/12

WWE NXT 09/26/12 Michael McGillicutty defeats Bo Dallas in an excellent match using the running neckbreaker. Leo Kruger defeats Jake Carter. Ryback destroys Aiden English and Frances Doray. Richie Steamboat defeats Kassius Ohno using an inside cradle. Ohno attacks Steamboat after the match. Thoughts: McGillicutty and Dallas are huge stars for the future of WWE, as are Steamboat and Ohno. The best way to introduce Ohno to the roster now would be to bring him in as a face and have him feud with Cesaro over the US Title. WhatRead More

Pro Wrestler Column – “Underneath The Mask” by Masked Gentleman

The Bell has rung for another fun filled column of Wrestling delectables. Let’s hit it! Hell In a Cell – Something about this PPV Misses me now that its PG Format. It has no meaning anymore. Hell In The Cell used to be about just sheer pain, and blood. Now the WWE’s PG Format has really weakened this format of danger. Like Extreme Rules, how extreme is it when its PG? Really WWE, your losing credibility in your PPV’s for dulling them down. They really have no buying power orRead More

Through all the big wrestling news items recently such as the 3 hour raw launch, John Cena’s divorce and even Triple-H’s haircut, the one which generated the most discussion from all corners of the wrestling business was a Twitter comment from master wrestling politician Kevin Nash. Big Sexy is Well known for being an extremely controversial figure within the wrestling business and has ruffled feathers on more than one occasion with his remarks about others but maybe never before as much as his recent comments on smaller-statured workers and specifically,Read More

The Cahoon Run Down: Late RAW Review, 9.24.12

Hey everybody, Geddy Cahoon here with a somewhat delayed article for your viewing pleasure. There is, as always, a little (Lot of) backstory behind today’s piece. Obviously over the past few weeks, my writing has faltered a bit and I’ve moved to an “Every other week” sort of schedule. With school and my interest in the product not what it was a few months ago, it’s harder to bring myself to devote 2 hours to writing every single week. This week, I was actually even sort of contemplating going onRead More

ThunderStruck: Raw Analysis 09/24/12

CM Punk and Paul Heyman open Raw and call out referee Brad Maddox about his call last week. Maddox owns up to his mistake and apologizes. They demand he resign his position. He says that would be inappropriate. AJ Lee comes out and tells Heyman off. Punk mocks her and then Heyman mocks her to the point that she smacks him and leaves the ring. Backstage after the segment, AJ tells Maddox he will never make a mistake like that again or she will see to see it that heRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC 152 Jones vs Belfort

For the first time in what seems like an age we’re going to step into the Octagon for my latest review with a look back at the five hour broadcast of UFC 152, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain. We start our look with the welcome return of the preliminary fights to British screens, beginning with the featherweight encounter between Jimmy Hettes and Marcus Brimage. These two put on a very enjoyable opener. After a brief feeling out period BrimageRead More

WWE Raw Review – September 24, 2012

-I’ve heard that the WWE Creative Team worked overtime on this episode, so three hours will only feel like three hours this week! -We are LIVE from Albany, NY (“Hey guys, we’re not New York City but we’re at least in the same state!”) -The show opens with CM Punk and Paul Heyman staging a sit-in to protest last week’s terrible referee work. My God, it’s like they are parodying some sort of league with replacement referees! So referee Brad Maddox makes his way to the ring and apologizes butRead More

Death of Wrestling: I’m The Tag Team Champions!

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

Chris Benoit is a subject I have considered writing about for a long long time. I haven’t done, for no other reason than I thought it just didn’t warrant any more talk or opinions, thoughts or views, but the above video, linked on Facebook by my Mentor Justin Richards convinced me to share my thoughts. I met Chris in 2004. At the Blue Bloods Wrestling Academy in Atlanta, GA. Along with Dave Taylor and William Regal we had been training at the facility for almost a week under the tutelegeRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Night of Champions

A little bit later than planned because of other commitments (dental work, training courses, you know the drill), we’re going to take a brief trip back in time to look at WWE Night of Champions, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with Rey Mysterio, Cody Rhodes and Sin Cara challenging the Miz for the Intercontinental title. This proved to be a very enjoyable opener. All four men put in good performances and pulled off someRead More

“What was once a captivating, trendsetting program has now deteriorated into a clichéd, boring snooze fest Now let’s go over the facts; television ratings – downward spiral, pay per view buyrates – plummeting, mainstream acceptance – non-existent and reactions of the live crowds – complete and utter silence. And I know why you’re silent. You’re silent because you’re embarrassed to be here and quite honestly I’m embarrassed for you. And the reason why you’re embarrassed is because of the steady stream of uninteresting, untalented sports entertainers who you’re forced toRead More

FATP: 10 Most Entertaining Current WWE Stars

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time to welcome you all to the latest edition of From Across the Pond. Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way right now. I mentioned this briefly in the PPV recap I wrote for wrestlingrambles.com on Sunday night/Monday morning, but watching Raw last week was just eerie. I’d been watching on delay because of Andy Murray’s US Open triumph (by the way @helenrobinson82, we’ve still to settle that bet!) and when Twitter blew up with the news that Jerry Lawler hadRead More

Cena says he wanted the match to continue and not end as a draw. Alberto Del Rio comes out and complains about not having a fair shot against Sheamus. AJ Lee comes out and books CM Punk to team with Del Rio to take on Sheamus and Cena. She says the winner of the match could determine which oneRead More

WWE Raw Review – September 17, 2012

-Good to hear that Jerry Lawler is being sent home. Well wishes to the King and his family…a true legend. -So we are coming off a Night of Champions pay-per-view that had a great main event (minus the finish, which I didn’t particularly care for) and a pretty good undercard, so hopefully WWE can follow that up with an entertaining episode of Raw. -We are LIVE Bridgeport, CT (home of…bridges?) -CM Punk’s music hits but Paul Heyman is the one making his entrance to start the show and says howRead More
