Too Many Legends Around In WWE?

WWE has made it common business practice to bring in retired superstars and put them in front of television cameras. They’ve done it for a long time and I’m sure will continue doing it…forever.Read More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE SummerSlam 2014

It’s meant to be the hottest event of the summer, but was it any good? That’s what I’m hoping to find out by viewing this year’s Summerslam, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with the first title match of the evening as Dolph Ziggler challenged the Miz for the Intercontinental title. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen reports saying that the powers that be are reluctant to push Ziggler these daysRead More

Many consider it to be sacred ground, as the spiritual home of World Wrestling Entertainment, and now we’re going to look at the DVD set dedicated to one of the greatest venues not just in professional wrestling, but in the world. The release in question is The Best of WWE at Madison Square Garden. And as is the custom with these things, let’s start right at the beginning with….. Disc One February 8th, 1971 Newly-crowned WWWF Champion Ivan Koloff makes his first defence as he takes on U.S. American ChampionRead More
World Championship Wrestling
For over a decade it was an integral part of the Jim Crocket Promotions and World Championship Wrestling universes, a two ring cage match designed to cause carnage and to settle score. Sadly I only ever got to see one of them, mainly because NWA & WCW pay per views weren’t shown here in Britain. Now all that’s going to change, because now we’re going to look back at the history of these events with War Games: WCW’s Most Notorious Matches. And as is the custom with these sets, let’sRead More
wwe-rivalries
There’s one thing that keeps the world of professional wrestling going, and that’s the rivalries. For decades fans have watched show after show to see how these rivalries develop, and how they will ultimately end. Now the good people at WWE have dipped into their ever-growing video archive to bring us a list of the biggest rivalries ever, with the three disc set entitled The Top 25 Rivalries in Wrestling History. As is the custom with these reviews let’s start at the very beginning with….. Disc One – The DocumentaryRead More

By any calculation, Wrestling has a prestigious history. Looking back at certain times, one can trace points where something happened that changed the direction of the industry. The question “what if”, can be applied to just about every walk of life. What if Jordan never retired in the 1990’s? What if Tupac and Biggie were still alive? What if you didn’t drink everything in sight that one night? It’s one of the best questions to ask yourself, because you’ll never really know the answer. Wrestling is no different. Whether throughRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE Wrestlemania XXX

It’s the biggest show of the year, the grand-daddy of them all, but did it live up to the hype? That’s what I’m hoping to find out by reviewing WWE Wrestlemania XXX, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with a great in-ring segment featuring Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and the Rock, and after those three legends shared a few beers it was on to the first match of the evening as Triple H, accompanied byRead More

No stalling today. Just a few topics and some reader feedback. Raw Rating Let me be clear: On Monday night, WWE Raw was the number one show on cable. Most watched and all that fun stuff. Top of the top! Cause for celebration, right? Not so fast. Obviously, this is excellent news for the company trying to secure a huge television deal. However, the rating/viewership could have been soooooooooooooo much higher. You know how WWE spent a month hyping up Batista’s big return earlier this year? WHERE WAS THAT? Seriously.Read More
Daniel Bryan
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

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

Now here’s something I haven’t said in a while. It’s time to step into WCW territory as we dip into the ever-growing pile of DVDs sent to me by the good people at Fremantle Media and Fetch Publicity for a review of The Best of WCW Monday Nitro Volume Two. As always these things begin with….. Disc 1 The Matches September 4th, 1995 It’s the very first edition of Nitro as Ric Flair challenges Sting for the United States title.

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

FATP: TN-AJ Styles

So, here’s the internet’s latest rumour (and I stress the word rumour) about AJ Styles’ current status with TNA – as of this moment, he’s taped a promo saying that he’ll be leaving TNA for good (which will air sometime in January 2014) and he’s done with the company. It’s just another example of TNA doing something that renders me speechless. Assuming that this rumour (there’s that word again!) is true, then it just baffles me that TNA have been unable to come to terms with AJ. Surely he can’tRead More

Last time out, I wrote about the greatness of Daniel Bryan. Thanks to everyone who got in touch about it. This week, you can pretty much tell from the title of the article that I’m gonna be talking about TNA’s resident dude brrrotherrr jack, Hulk Hogan. And it ain’t gonna be complimentary. So if you’re a massive Hogan mark and think that the sun shines out of his ass, it’s probably best you don’t read this. Not a great plug I know, but it’s the truth. I’m sick and tiredRead More

Death of Wrestling: AJ’s Pipe Bomb

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 um’d and ah’d for a while over whether I wanted to talk about the state of Smackdown or the state of TNA, but as I don’t think the problems with Smackdown will be sortedRead More
