The Wrestling Genius: This Was a Tough One

I am aware other writers have brought this up but I’m throwing my two cents in on the subject, seeing as I’ve been saying for months now that it was pathetic that TNA had Jeff Hardy as their champion just because he sells t-shirts. Now I’ve read a few reports that this might be an “angle” or that he’s “working” this whole thing. I’m not buying it for a second, and if he was “working”, someone should walk into Vince Russo’s office and punch him in the crotch for everyRead More

The Wrestling Genius: When a Knockout Isn’t a Knockout

Apparently, a knockout blow means using the same tired old rhymes and pathetic attempts at gay and self-pleasure jokes. Okay now I’ll admit that I’m not that into the hip-hop rap community, but I have seen a few rap battles and last I checked what Cena did on Monday would have gotten him booed off the stage at any other venue outside of a WWE ring. It was in my opinion a terrible attempt at smacking back at the rock. So, congratulations to John Cena for “knocking out” The RockRead More

The Wrestling Genius: The Great Vignette Heist

Before I get to what happened on Monday, I would first like to lie to rest a promising wrestling organization, TNA.

When they ran a complete rip off WWE’s 2/21/11 vignette, it killed all hopes of them being a WWE equal. I get the wholeRead More
