Hello! After ALLLLL the CM Punk blabber last week, I think every single wrestling fan deserved a break. Take a breather. Get some fresh air. Smell the roses. Watch the clouds. Just enjoy life away from all the backstage gossip and never ending rumor mills. That being said, I am back. There are a few topics to discuss, as well as the usual comments. How about we kick it off with a Tweet? Gurung Saurav: Your first impression of The Undertaker character? His #1 Moment? His #1 match? Ah, TheRead More

Everybody sick and tired of reading about CM Punk yet? Well, you are all in luck. This will be my last column dedicated to him for awhile. I am sure his name will come up again. No doubt, it will. However, with all things in the news cycle, it is time to move on. First Batista was the big story. Then Daniel Bryan at the Royal Rumble. Now CM Punk leaving. By next week, the ‘talk of the town’ will be something new. Here we go… Jason: “Loved your articleRead More

Smark Talk: Fans Sound Off On CM Punk Quitting WWE

Welcome PWManiacs! My last column about CM Punk may have produced a personal best amount of feedback from writing online for nearly six years. From the comments section below to email to Twitter to the amount of social media replies to everything in between, it was pretty amazing to watch unfold. For somebody who has done this for so long, I am still in awe of the passion and desire shown by us – the wrestling fans all over the world! With that cliched and corny opening out of theRead More

WWE History Shows CM Punk Will Return, Sooner Or Later

CM Punk will be back. If there’s anything that we can learn from WWE’s history with its disgruntled and/or estranged talent, it’s that they always come back eventually. Some take longer than others to come around, but return they ultimately do. Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Steve Austin, Bret Hart, and others – all at one time churned up major, real-life issues with Vince McMahon, and all of them found their way home to the promotion they made their name in at some point. For CM Punk, it’s now a questionRead More

Well, well, well…I was all set to write my HUGE column on Sting. Everything was paid out and in place. The rumors were roaring about a possible deal, and it was going to be great. Come Wednesday night, my column would be published. Then plans changed in a hurry. All of the stuff about Sting has (predictably) gone nowhere and attention shifted. Out of the blue, Sting was no longer the most talked about man in professional wrestling. Nope. That distinction quickly went to CM Punk. For those still inRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Royal Rumble

It’s been universally panned, so much so that there was even a news story about it on the BBC website. But was it as bad as everyone said it was? Well, that’s what I’m hoping to find out by watching WWE’s Royal Rumble, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The broadcast began with Daniel Bryan taking on his arch nemesis Bray Wyatt. This was a tremendous way to start the show, and it may also be the bestRead More

FATP Awards 2013

“It’s Christmastime, there’s no need to be afraid… At Christmastime… We let in light, and banish shade…” It might be the festive Christmas spirit, or just the spirits I’ve had to drink over the last week or so, but that intro from a well-known Christmas song is a great metaphor for this edition of FATP, especially the “…let in light, and banish shade…” bit. Normally, I’m sarcastic and angry, but what the hell… it’s Christmas, so I’ve lightened up a bit! Welcome one, welcome all to just the 2nd everRead 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.

FATP: Out With The Old, In With The New

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve not watched any current wrestling (from either WWE or TNA) for the last 3 weeks because I’m incredibly frustrated with the product at the moment. When I’ve been in that kind of mood before, a lot of you have told me to stop watching or shut up. You’ll be glad to know that I’ve taken your advice and I’ve stopped watching! However, it makes me feel better when I listen to guys like Dave Meltzer, Jason Powell and Wade KellerRead More

Death of Wrestling: Respect My Authority!

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. I’m not sure that I’m okay with them busting Daniel Bryan back down to mid-card status. Okay, okay, the WWE claim to be using this as a way to elevate the Wyatt family, but somethingRead More
