Here it is the part two of my two part, non-champion playoffs. If you missed last week’s column check it out before continuing on with this one…or don’t I don’t care you don’t have to be rude about it. Without further ado the rough and tumble playoffs continue. 2nd Round Raw Bracket 1) Dolph Ziggler vs. 5) Lord Tensai Interesting matchup of conflicting styles. Tensai had a breeze in round one while Dolph had a little trouble with Dean Ambrose. Both should still be fresh for the round 2 matchup.Read More

The Two Sheds Review: Guest Booker: Yesterday & Today

What if? It’s a question that’s been asked throughout the history of professional wrestling. What if Hogan faced Flair at Wrestlemania 8? What if Eric Bischoff led the WCW invasion of the WWF? There’s thousands of what if questions you could ask. Now you can add another question to that list. What if WWE purchased TNA? That’s something Kayfabe Commentaries asked in their latest Guest Booker release. Entitled Yesterday & Today it brings together Kevin Sullivan and Gabe Sapolsky. These two have close ties booking-wise. Sullivan was Paul Heyman’s mentor.Read More

Hey everybody, Geddy Cahoon here with another edition of The Cahoon Run Down for my fans on teh internetz. Today, much like last week, I was at something of a loss for what to write about. We’re currently in that pre-Summer Story lull that WWE always seems to fall into at this time, and accordingly, things are very very boring (For the most part. I still have a massive man-crush on both Damien Sandow and Daniel Bryan) on both RAW and SmackDown. However, in a startling change of pace, IRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Over the Limit

It was a battle of the Johns as General Manager Laurinaitis met top superstar Cena in the main event of WWE Over the Limit, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Sports here in Britain. The show began in the middle of the People Power Battle Royal, with the winner getting a shot at either the United States or Intercontinental title.

Dave Scott – Please Stop Squashing Us!

Hello there dudes and dudetes. Dave Scott here with some Monday night ramblings as per usual. Tonight I’m going to touch on something I’ve realised over the last few weeks and really came to light to me fully at last nights Over The Lime pay per view. Now last nights pay per view I thought was very good. I liked how they started with the battle royal match as I honestly love a good battle royal. The main thing I loved about this was that it gave guys a chanceRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE Over The Limit 2012 Reaction

NC State got rocked for WWE’s third annual Over the Limit ppv event! This won’t be a very long reaction, but I’ll add more of my final thoughts in my new weekly rundown on Saturday. Let’s get to it: Kane defeated Zach Ryder on the preshow. ^Ryder gets buried, and Kane has no storyline just three weeks after his rivalry with Randy Orton ends. His match with Punk was really good on Smackdown; I wouldn’t mind seeing more of those two. I guess overall this was a better “free forRead More

So I’ll only mentioning the announced card as of this Friday’s Smackdown. Enjoy Kofi Kingston & R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger I don’t likeRead More
A few days ago we looked at the first part of Ring of Honor’s Battle in the Carolinas DVD box set, Southern Defiance. Now it’s time to take a look at the second part of the set as we go back to Greensboro, North Carolina for last December’s Northern Aggression. The show began with Mike Bennett, still without his coach Bob Evans, taking on T.J. Perkins. This was the usual ROH-style opener, a short and sweet affair between two of the best young stars in the company. Bennett once againRead More

Remembering Randy Savage

On May 20th 2011, the professional wrestling world was shocked and saddened upon hearing the news of the passing of the most charismatic and iconic superstar ever to step foot in the squared circle, Randy “Macho Man” Savage at the age of 58. Randy Savage was more than just a professional wrestler, he was a pop culture phenomenon who transcended from body slams and headlocks to music, television and the movies. Many professional wrestlers that compete today are heavily influenced by his legendary persona, wardrobe and his unbelievable talent inRead More

Today, we will breakdown how these two got here, and breakdown what to expect from these to when they go “over the limit”. Knowing these two have a storied history in Ring of Honor, it is a great story to see Indy wrestlers withRead More

The Wrestling Genius: The Non-Champions Playoffs

Anyone that knows me knows I’m a basketball junkie. There are few things better than good physical playoff basketball. Know this I hate the Heat, so any team playing then instantly becomes my team to root for. Why do I bring this up? It’s because the NBA is currently in the 2nd round of its playoffs and I’m inspired. This column will be all about playoffs in wrestling specifically who on the current WWE/FCW roster who hasn’t held a title is the best.   However, before I get into thatRead More

Punk says everyone has been praying and their prayers have been answered. He says JL gets terminated on Sunday when he loses to John Cena. JL books Punk in a match with Kane tonight.

ThunderStruck: NXT Redemption Analysis 05/16/12

Johnny Curtis defeats Percy Watson clean with a falcon arrow suplex after a solid four and a half minute opening match. ^I find it hard to believe that WWE would consider getting rid of either one of these guys. I was originally leaning towards Curtis being someone that they might cut when it came time to do roster cleanup, but he’s got so much talent and it just seems like it would be a horrible idea to let him go. Percy is probably the most dynamic and fun to watchRead More

ThunderStruck: FCW Recap And Thoughts 05/13/12

Antonio Cesaro goes one on one with Kassius Ohno. The ref gets knocked out by Ohno’s rolling elbow roughly fourteen minutes into the match when Cesaro pulls the ref in the way. Ohno wins the match by DQ and the FCW locker room has to come down and pull these two apart. ^Cesaro and Ohno wrestled as the Kings of Wrestling on the independent circuit. This match was ppv quality without question and I want to see more of these two going one on one. The finish was good becauseRead More
