FATP: The Rock and the WWE Championship in 2013

It’s time for the latest edition of FATP. Today, I thought I’d take a look at the possible scenarios surrounding The Rock and the WWE Title in 2013. As much as everyone sh*ts on The Rock for only coming back part-time, the fact is that when he’s back, TV ratings and PPV buys spike. Nobody can blame him for moving on from wrestling. I guarantee that any other wrestler would’ve done the same if they’d have had the chance. Do I think he could’ve come back sooner? Yeah, but that’sRead More

WWE’s website published an article with a statement from Vince McMahon. Here is what the article reads: WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon has released a statement through his office, speaking to the developing situation surrounding the WWE TLC pay-per-view. Because of the previously reported knee injury to WWE Champion CM Punk, suffered this past Monday night on Raw, Punk is unable to compete at WWE TLC against Ryback Sunday, Dec. 16.

FATP: PPV Special

We’re well into another week, which means that the latest FATP is probably overdue! I’ve been struggling to find something exciting to write about, so I thought I’d combine TNA and WWE for this week only! I’ll give my brief thoughts on TNA Turning Point, which was only shown in the UK last night, before previewing Survivor Series, which is live this Sunday. Sound good? Cool, let’s get to it. TNA Turning Point Review I’m not gonna give a blow-by-blow account of what happened because, to be honest, it’d takeRead More

Death of Wrestling: Survivor Series

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 the final quarter of the year, Christmas, believe it or not, is right around the corner, but first we have one of the WWE’s signature PPVs: Survivor Series. As a kid growing up IRead More

It’s been two weeks since I last wrote something for PWMania.com, so I’d like to apologise for that. I’ve been busy reformatting a website, which basically took over my life from the end of October until this past Sunday. The only break I had from it was to watch Hell in a Cell. It’s done now though, so your regularly scheduled FATP’s are back from here on in. This past weekend, I went out and bought my FIRST wrestling DVD. Yup, you read that properly: my FIRST wrestling DVD. SeemsRead More

Death of Wrestling: Bad PPVs

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 week I spoke about HIAC shaping up to be a pretty poor PPV with the main event certain to leave a bad taste in our mouths, and for once the WWE didn’t disappoint! IRead More

Death of Wrestling: Terrible Booking

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. Hell in the Cell, in general and my opinion, is not the best PPV line up in recent history; there are a few matches that I want to see, but it’s not like I wouldRead More

It’s time for the latest FATP, which is exclusive to PWMania.com. Due to other commitments, I couldn’t write last week, but rest assured, its back to business as usual, which means it’s that time of the week where I give you my thoughts on something in the crazy world of sports-entertainment! This week, I’ve decided to write about the main-event of WWE’s next pay-per-view, Hell in a Cell, which comes to us live this Sunday. Something’s gotta give as CM Punk’s title reign collides with the one-man wrecking ball, Ryback.Read More

The Cahoon Run Down: RAW Review 10.1.12

Hello all, Geddy Cahoon here with another RAW review for your reading pleasure. Without any further adieu, let’s hop into this! Opening Segment: I’m not sure how I felt about this opening. It ran for a really a long time, but I don’t actually remember a lot of it. Apparently it ran about 7 minutes longer than it was supposed to. That does not shock me. It dragged by and nothing really happened. It’s not like Ziggler and Punk are going to feud or anything. It was just like, “HeyRead 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

Around 9 p.m. ET Monday night, I started penning this very edition of The Commentary. It was to focus on CM Punk’s impact off the bat at the show’s start, interrupting the legendary Bret Hart in Montreal and entering to boos. It was to focus on the excellent usage of Paul Heyman, who even with doing little, added so much more depth to Punk’s heel persona. Hell, it was even to discuss how unwarranted Alicia Fox’s sudden heel turn was, and how frustrated I am with the lack of directionRead More
