FATP: Taken For Granted

Guess who’s back?! Haha! Indeed. I’ve been far too quiet for far too long and now’s the time for me to break my silence! Unless it’s just me being exceptionally harsh (which isn’t all that unusual to be honest), a lot of WWE fans in particular, seem to be tremendously frustrated at the amount of sub-par PPV’s that good ol’ Vinnie Mac’s multi-billion dollar sports-entertainment juggernaut have been throwing at us over the past 12-18 months. What are the reasons for that? Well, there might be a few so insteadRead More

Wrestling companies are kind of damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. TNA recently reduced their PPV quota and fans instantly started to wonder whether this is the beginning of the end ofRead More

The Wrestling Genius: When Good Ideas Go Bad

Some things work really really well, like casting Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Sure now it seems like he was the only choice but at the time Downey wasn’t exactly in vogue in Hollywood.

The director and the studio were taking a huge risk, the kind of risk that could get people fired and workingRead More
