One Count Kickout – No Selling

Follow @OneCountKickout The One Count Kickout Blog Got Facebook?  Like the One Count Kickout Wrestling was never Shakespeare but at least it made sense once upon a time.  Storylines had identifiable beginnings and endings.  You knew when you were watching a match that it was going to begin a feud or end one.  The wrestlers built up to things, to Pay Per Views, to blow offs, to matches that mattered.  The wrestlers themselves sold it.  Would anyone have believed that Bob Backlund was a threat to Bret Hart unless BretRead More

John Cena played the role of embarrassed targetRead More

Dr. Wrestling:Punk and Del Rio

Why is it that even though Alberto Del Rio vs. CM Punk for the WWE title will take place at Survivor Series, it just doesn’t seem like the WWE is doing much to push them as a major selling point for the PPV? The answer is probably a variety of things, but to have a main event match become lost in the shuffle of Triple H/Nash/Lariunatis and John Cena/The Rock, is disappointing. More than anything, it shows what a scrambled mess Raw has become recently and there’s no real directionRead More
