FATP: The Rock and the WWE Championship in 2013

It’s time for the latest edition of FATP. Today, I thought I’d take a look at the possible scenarios surrounding The Rock and the WWE Title in 2013. As much as everyone sh*ts on The Rock for only coming back part-time, the fact is that when he’s back, TV ratings and PPV buys spike. Nobody can blame him for moving on from wrestling. I guarantee that any other wrestler would’ve done the same if they’d have had the chance. Do I think he could’ve come back sooner? Yeah, but that’sRead More

TNA President Dixie Carter tweeted earlier today, “Just spoke with Hulk Hogan. Tomorrow on Impact live, Sting and Kurt Angle vs. 2 members of Aces and Eights.” Tomorrow is the final Impact before Turning Point so expect a match featuring the Ace’s and Eight’s to be added to the card. The Rock has landed the lead in the forthcoming movie “Hercules” based on the graphic noel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars.” Shooting is to begin in “early 2013,” meaning that the project could be going on while Rock is working withRead More

Death of Wrestling: Terrible Booking

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. Hell in the Cell, in general and my opinion, is not the best PPV line up in recent history; there are a few matches that I want to see, but it’s not like I wouldRead More

Dave Scott – Monday Night Long

Hey there guys, Dave Scott here with the back to normal Monday night banter! I’ve been racking my brain the past few hours thinking about what I’m going to write about this week.

It is hard enough sometimes staying up until 4am when it was 2 hours long, but now that there is that extra hour and nothing overly great happening I’ve been falling asleep before the end of Raw. Now there wouldRead More
