Bunch of stuff to discuss before Sunday. My Elimination Chamber predictions should be posted over the weekend. WWE Battleground 2013 Just one quick note: Battleground did a near record low pay-per-view buy rate last October. Not to brag, but I called it! That event never stood a chance, and it was easy to predict a total failure was coming in terms of PPV buys. WWE made up for it three weeks later with Heck on a Deck, so maybe their plan paid off? About 342,000 PPV buys through entire theRead More

Here is a quick rundown. I will reply to a few emails, a few comments, a few tweets, and discuss a few other topics for today. That is the word of the day: FEW! Everybody ready? Without any more stalling, I will let the comments kick us off… From Jimi: hey justin. I just read on the Internet page that hogan is coming to wwe? Is that true? What can he do? He’s broken down? I like hulk but the past injuries he surely isn’t wrestling he never did atRead More
CM Punk
How about we dive right into a few topics? Live Events… One of my favorite things to do online throughout the “IWC” is read fan reports from live events, television tapings, or even pay-per-view events. It gives everybody a personal look inside the mind of a wrestling fan, as well as any story or anecdote. Fun. For those who have been keeping track, the chants for CM Punk are slowly dying down as time goes by. Now, this could be for one of two reasons. Honestly, I credit BOTH reasons.Read More

Death of Wrestling: Batista

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. So I said to my brother in law that if Batista wins the Rumble then I’m going to stop watching wrestling… Batista won the Rumble and in all honesty, I’ve kind of stopped watching wrestling…Read More

I am back. Instead of wasting time with an introduction, how about we just dive into things? WWE Smackdown The Blue Brand just ended their Friday night episode. Wow! Folks, this show has drawn over three million viewers for three straight weeks. What we saw this week is the reason why. The Shield had a ten minute opening six person tag. Jack Swagger won a very entertaining eight minute fatal four way match to become the #1 contender for the IC Championship. There was a ten minute eight person tag.Read More

From Across The Pond: WWE & TNA Q&A

It’s that time again. Yup, thanks to my self-imposed hiatus from all things WWE and TNA, I wanted to write a column, but had no idea what to write about. That’s where you fine people came in! You supplied the questions and I’m set to fire through them with my answer gun. I got plenty of questions from Facebook and Twitter, as well as by e-mail. Some of them are serious, some of them are more sarcastic. You should be able to tell them apart, but be warned! This article’sRead More

Everybody getting excited for the WWE Network? I know I am. After years and years of doubting this entire project would start up, it is almost here. Right or wrong, the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view has become secondary in importance. The night AFTER is going to be beyond epic. Taking place from Green Bay, Wisconsin (I am from WI) only adds to the excitement. With that little introduction out of the way, how about we tackle a few topics for today? WWE Smackdown Ratings Continue Rising A lot of folks alwaysRead More

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

Quick warning: There are a ton of emails to get through. It is going to take a few columns. Remain patient. As always, the ones with foul language will not be included. Do not be shy! Get involved below in the comment section or through email/social media. The links are at the end of the column. Be sure to interact folks! How about we kick it off with a slight comparison to AJ Styles? Franck: “I’ve juste read your take on the whole CM Punk story. How can you soRead 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
