FATP: TN-AJ Styles

So, here’s the internet’s latest rumour (and I stress the word rumour) about AJ Styles’ current status with TNA – as of this moment, he’s taped a promo saying that he’ll be leaving TNA for good (which will air sometime in January 2014) and he’s done with the company. It’s just another example of TNA doing something that renders me speechless. Assuming that this rumour (there’s that word again!) is true, then it just baffles me that TNA have been unable to come to terms with AJ. Surely he can’tRead More

Death of Wrestling: AWOL

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 time out, I wrote about the greatness of Daniel Bryan. Thanks to everyone who got in touch about it. This week, you can pretty much tell from the title of the article that I’m gonna be talking about TNA’s resident dude brrrotherrr jack, Hulk Hogan. And it ain’t gonna be complimentary. So if you’re a massive Hogan mark and think that the sun shines out of his ass, it’s probably best you don’t read this. Not a great plug I know, but it’s the truth. I’m sick and tiredRead More

Death of Wrestling: AJ’s Pipe Bomb

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. I um’d and ah’d for a while over whether I wanted to talk about the state of Smackdown or the state of TNA, but as I don’t think the problems with Smackdown will be sortedRead More

Yes, I know it’s Christmas Day and yes, you’re probably wondering what the hell I’m doing writing a column this week, but I’ll let you into a secret… break kayfabe if you like.

ThisRead More

Death of Wrestling: Aces and Eights

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 been a pretty good week of wrestling so far with Final Resolution and pretty solid ‘go home shows’ for Raw and Smackdown. So I just want to talk about something that I don’t thinkRead More
