The Two Sheds Review: TNA Destination X

It’s time to step into the Impact Zone once again as we take a look at the latest pay-per-view offering from TNA, with Austin Aries challenging Bobby Roode for the World title in the main event of Destination X, shown this past Wednesday night on Challenge here in Britain. The show began with the last chance qualifying match as Rubix, Mason Andrews, Lars Only and Dakota Darsow fought it out for the final spot in the X Division title tournament. This was a great way to start the show. I’dRead More

The Cahoon Run Down: Missing Wrestlers

Hey everybody, I’m back! Yes, after a four week hiatus dealing with an illness that was never really diagnosed and I still haven’t completely gotten over, I’m back to rock the internet wrestling world with more unhappy, sarcastic articles. On this, my first week back, I want to talk about something that I’ve been thinking about for a while: Rey Mysterio and The Miz. Or, more accurately, the prolonged absence of the aforementioned wrestlers. I really miss them. That’s weird for two reasons: Miz was doing nothing at the timeRead More

ThunderStruck: Raw Analysis 07/09/12

Raw opens with AJ proposing to CM Punk. Daniel Bryan interrupts and proposes to AJ. The anonymous Raw GM is back and Cole announces that Punk and AJ will take on Daniel Bryan and Eve tonight. ^I loved the anonymous GM angle, and I was glad to see it brought back tonight. A marriage proposal? So quickly in the storyline? I guess it makes sense for a psycho. Where is the Miz and his “reallys” when I need him? Sheamus squashes Jack Swagger. Alberto Del Rio shows up on theRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC 148 Silva vs Sonnen II

It was the re-match we’d been waiting nearly two years for as Chael Sonnen challenged Anderson Silva for the Middleweight title in the main event of UFC 148, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain. The broadcast began in the bantamweight division as Ivan Menjivar faced Mike Easton. While this may not go down as one of the most memorable fights in UFC history it certainly was entertaining. Easton put in a very solid performance. His striking was crisp and heRead More

The Rock – ‘The People’s Champ’ Should Be WWE Champ

The Rock is without a doubt one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever to step foot in the squared circle, and he was instrumental in helping to shape one of the most successful periods in WWE history,The Attitude Era. On the April 3rd edition of WWE RAW, Rock announced to the world that his goal was to once again become WWE Champion, and recently he announced that he is appearing on the 1000th episode of WWE RAW on July 23rd. Once again the topic of the WWE Championship was broughtRead More

FATP:- 5 hopes for WWE before the end of 2012

It’s time again for the latest edition of “From Across the Pond” with yours truly. Thanks to everyone that got in touch about last week’s FATP, where I reviewed the year so far in WWE. The feedback was pretty positive, so I’ll be doing the second part of that column at the end of the year. This week I’m gonna run through five predictions for things I’d like to see between now and the end of 2012. Let’s not muck about and get straight into it! The return of KharmaRead More

Dave Scott – Week in Review

Hey there muckers! Dave Scott here for the usual Monday night blabbering. This week I was going to write about Raw again to go with the whole thousandth episode theme, but the columns I’ve got planned are going to take a lot more work than I usually take for them. So this week I’m going to go through the last week of wrestling that I have watched. That being Raw, Smackdown and the back end of Destination X. So let’s start with Raw. Last week on Raw we furthered theRead More

The Two Sheds Review: ROH Homecoming 2012

It’s time to step into Ring of Honor territory once again for our latest DVD review as we head back to this past January where TV Champion Jay Lethal challenged World Champion Davey Richards at Homecoming 2012. The show began with tag team action as Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin, took on the Future Shock team of Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly in a Gateway to Honor re-match. I’m guessing this was after Haas and Benjamin turned heel, mainly because they were both wearing black andRead More

The Wrestling Genius: When Good Ideas Go Bad

Some things work really really well, like casting Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Sure now it seems like he was the only choice but at the time Downey wasn’t exactly in vogue in Hollywood. His comeback attempts after several drug related run in’s with the police hadn’t really materialized (unless you are one of the eleven people that enjoyed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang…ok I’m one of those eleven). The director and the studio were taking a huge risk, the kind of risk that could get people fired and workingRead More

It’s time for me to bring you the latest edition of From Across the Pond. We’re now into the seventh month of 2012, so I thought I’d give a recap of the year so far in WWE. I’ll try to include the things that were critical to on-going storylines as well as talking about the most impressive things I saw from WWE. I won’t mention every single thing that happened on every single show because not everything that happened on every show was relevant. It’s going to cover January throughRead More

ThunderStruck: Raw Analysis 07/02/12

The show opens with a shot of the WWE Title MITB briefcase hanging above the ring. It’s announced that John Cena will team with CM Punk to take on Daniel Bryan and Chris Jericho. John Cena comes to the ring and says he will win MITB and become the next WWE Champion. Daniel Bryan comes out chanting yes. Bryan says he will win the WWE Title and Cena will fail when he cashes in his briefcase. Cena says he can think of at least one person that disagrees with Daniel.Read More

Top 5 Factions in Raw History

Top 5 Factions in Raw History Hey guys, Dave Scott here with my usual Monday night blabbering. I mentioned last week that I’m going to be going with the theme towards the 1000th episode of Raw and that is exactly what I am going to be doing! This week I’m going to be discussing the top five factions in Raw history, well in my opinion anyway. There have been loads of factions throughout the years but these five are the five which I believe to be the cream of theRead More

Tea Time with Liam: MITB Madness

Hello everybody once again. Liam here with another riveting edition of Tea Time with Liam. Again this still seems like it’s becoming more of a bi weekly gig than weekly and hey its Monday today so I’m even posting it on the wrong day too. Like I mentioned in my previous article. I am trying to bring this back to weekly but due to a combination of terrible shows and my chronic laziness I’m pumping out every two weeks currently. Will that change? I’ll guess we’ll see what WWE andRead More

Adzop: Will Morgan Return to WWE?

Apparently, Matt Morgan is on his way back to WWE. Just for a few minutes, let’s assume that this is true. Let’s hope that it’s a done deal, and Morgan will soon be back on WWE TV. When asked about the situation on Twitter, his response has often been ‘Tick Tock Tick Tock’ – as if to tell us that it’s only a matter of time before his return to the Stamford based organisation. A Connecticut boy himself, Morgan actually wrestled for WWE in the early part of his careerRead More

Thunder’s Weekly Rundown 06/30/12

Impact Wrestling dominated TV this week in terms of quality, but sports entertainment as a whole was extremely fun to watch! The rundown is loaded this week, so let’s jump right into it! ROH Best In The World(06/24/12) Reaction: The Briscoes defeated the Guardians of Truth. Solid tag team action to start the show. I’m curious who the Guardians are; one of them had sporadic tattoos similar to Michael Cole(if Cole had a tan and fifty pounds of muscle, I’d be suspicious). Homicide defeated Eddie Edwards. This match was straightRead More

The Two Sheds Review: UFC 147 Silva vs Franklin II

Here’s the story. I was all set to take my latest trip into the Octagon on Sunday night, but a rain storm here in merry old England knocked out the satellite signal while I was recording the show. This meant that I had to wait to record the repeat showing in the early hours of Tuesday morning. So, after a slight delay, I can now bring you my thoughts on the return fight between Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin in the main event of UFC 147, originally shown this pastRead More

ThunderStruck: Raw Analysis 06/25/12

AJ opens Raw talking to what we assume are Punk, Bryan, and Kane. Turns out she is talking to a mirror. Off to the opening promo. ^I saw Snow White and the Huntsman recently. Strange but interesting comparison to the wicked queen. I like how AJ’s character has been involved in this WWE Title scene without being a full fledged distraction to the actual WRESTLING that we’ve been gifted with between Punk and Bryan. Fun opening! Vickie Guerrero comes out and announces a triple threat elimination match. It’s between Kane,Read More

The Two Sheds Review; UCMMA 25 The Beat Down

It’s time for one of those strange occurrences again, a DVD review of a television show I’ve already reviewed. For this instalment we’ll be delving into the pile of DVDs sent to me by the good folks at Ultimate Challenge MMA as we take a look at their 25th show, The Beat Down. The opening contest took place in the welterweight division as Micky Millar faced Esi Moradi. These two debuting fighters were so eager to get going the referee had to separate them before the fight had even begun.Read More
