FATP: 7 former stars who should appear at Raw 1000

Next Monday, WWE will broadcast the 1,000th episode of Monday Night Raw. There have been so many men and women that have contributed to the success of Raw and whenever there’s a “special episode” of Raw, WWE brings out the same old faces to pop a reaction from the crowd. You know the ones I mean, like Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter, Dusty Rhodes, Mae Young and so on. For the 1,000th episode, I’d like to see them go down a different road. In my opinion, without the stars ofRead More

FATP:- 5 hopes for WWE before the end of 2012

It’s time again for the latest edition of “From Across the Pond” with yours truly. Thanks to everyone that got in touch about last week’s FATP, where I reviewed the year so far in WWE. The feedback was pretty positive, so I’ll be doing the second part of that column at the end of the year. This week I’m gonna run through five predictions for things I’d like to see between now and the end of 2012. Let’s not muck about and get straight into it! The return of KharmaRead More
It’s time for me to bring you the latest edition of From Across the Pond. We’re now into the seventh month of 2012, so I thought I’d give a recap of the year so far in WWE. I’ll try to include the things that were critical to on-going storylines as well as talking about the most impressive things I saw from WWE. I won’t mention every single thing that happened on every single show because not everything that happened on every show was relevant. It’s going to cover January throughRead More
It’s that time of the week where I bring the latest edition of “From Across the Pond” to you here at PWMania.com. Before I get started, I wanna thank @Chocobo_Kid for designing the new banner for my column! No rambling start from me this week, I’m gonna get right down to it. Earlier today, John Cena tweeted: “In Fort Wayne for #Raw tonight I have an announcement that will make history! Make sure to watch #Raw”. Now, far be it for me to be pessimistic (and I’m sure regular readersRead More

FATP:- Taking the venom out of The Viper

Welcome to this week’s edition of “From Across the Pond” with yours truly. Hopefully your week’s been good! We’re coming off a decent, but not great, No Way Out PPV, which was pretty predictable for the most part. If you’ve not seen the show, I’d recommend checking out the three male singles title matches. They were the best on the show and worth the purchase price alone. The rest was filler that wouldn’t look out of place at a TV taping. This week, I wanted to talk about the possibilityRead More

FATP: Who’s to blame for the current problems in WWE?

It’s time for this week’s edition of “From Across the Pond”. I genuinely thought I was going to struggle to find something to write about, but that was before WWE stepped up to the plate and hand-delivered me one of the worst Monday Night Raw main-events in WWE history, so before I get started today, I need to give some people a lot of credit. Thank you Vince McMahon, thank you Brian Gerwitz, thank you to every single member of the WWE creative team and most of all, the “starRead More

FATP: Why the wrestling business needs a successful TNA

It’s time for this week’s edition of FATP with yours truly. Jubilee fever has hit the UK and to be honest, I’m a bit sick of it. No offence to those celebrating though, I hope you’re having a great time! Since I last wrote anything here on PWMania.com, I suppose the biggest news was Randy Orton’s STUPID 60-day suspension (if you got that, grab yourself a beer!) I almost couldn’t believe it when I heard what had happened. He’s become one of the greatest in-ring workers that the company hasRead More

FATP: The Summer of Impact

What’s up guys? Yeah, I know, I’m back again with this week’s from across the pond. It doesn’t seem like a week’s gone by already does it? Time apparently flies when you’re having fun though! Talking of fun, in the last 3 weeks or so, I’ve been really impressed with TNA Impact. I’ve been guilty of reading spoilers in the past, which gave me an excuse not to watch it, but in the last 3 weeks or so, I’ve given it a chance and the show is actually really goodRead More

FATP: Surprisingly, women’s wrestling goes beyond WWE

What’s up guys? I’m back with my third column in less than a week, all to do with the sport that we love, wrestling. We’re coming off the back of a very decent Over the Limit PPV last night. If you didn’t see it, check it out. Overall, you won’t be disappointed. I’ll give my overall thoughts on it before we get started. I was 5 for 6 with my predictions, which you can read here. The show kicked off in the middle of a People Power Battle Royal, whichRead More
What’s up boys and girls? It’s been a few weeks since I last wrote anything for the site, so I wanna apologise for that. Things kicked off and I wasn’t able to dedicate my time to writing. Everything’s starting to clear up a bit now, so I’ll be back fresher and brighter than ever for everyone here at PWMania.com!! This week, I’m going to focus on one of the few men in WWE who actually understands how the wrestling business works. That man’s name is Chris Jericho. Jericho has alreadyRead More

FATP: The John Cena Problem

It’s that time of the week where I bring you lucky readers of PWMania.com my views from across the pond. Thanks for all the great feedback on last week’s article. It’s greatly appreciated. I’m getting new followers every day on Twitter. If you’re on there and want to follow me, my handle is @georgec1982. This week, I wanted to discuss the one problem with WWE’s programming and main-event scene. You can probably guess that the person I’m talking about is John Cena. Now, I want to start off by sayingRead More

FATP: Previewing TNA’s Lockdown PPV

What’s up everyone? It’s George here with another column at PWMania.com. I’ve decided to use the title “From Across the Pond” for all my articles here from now on. I’m going to break from the norm for me this week and preview the next wrestling PPV on the calendar, which is TNA’s annual LockDown PPV. As things stand at the moment, there are 7 matches on the card, so I’ll briefly run through them and pick who I think will win their respective matches. Ready? Let’s get started! TNA TVRead More
