The Undertaker Tag

undertaker-9
Here is an update on The Undertaker’s health and plans on a return for next year. Undertaker was asked recently if he’s coming back for WrestleMania 31. After the concussion he suffered in addition to all of his existing injuries, he has said in the past week or two that the chances of him returning don’t look too good. He is training at the gym now. Keep in mind that in previous years the word has been negative at first, then around September then word changes to a “maybe” andRead 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

FATP: WrestleMania 30 Fallout

After an indefinite hiatus, welcome along to the latest edition of FATP. Sorry it’s taken so long to put fingers to keys! WWE’s landmark 30th WrestleMania event is now consigned to the history books, and a whole hell of a lot has happened over the last seven days in particular, so (in no particular order) here’s my take on the biggest stories of the week. This might become a regular thing. I’m not sure. I’ll see how it goes. Daniel Bryan Crowned the New WWE World Heavyweight Champion After whatRead 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

In pro wrestling, as in life, there are certain universal truths. John Cena will always emerge victorious, Dolph Ziggler will never receive the kind of push most feel he deserves, and The Undertaker’s Streak will remain in tact for all eternity. Whether Cena should remain at the head of the pack whilst the undeniably talented Ziggler languishes around the midcard is a topic of much debate, though it’s hard to argue against the idea of The Dead Man continuing to have his hand raised in victory for as long asRead More

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

From Across The Pond: WWE & TNA Q&A

It’s that time again. Yup, thanks to my self-imposed hiatus from all things WWE and TNA, I wanted to write a column, but had no idea what to write about. That’s where you fine people came in! You supplied the questions and I’m set to fire through them with my answer gun. I got plenty of questions from Facebook and Twitter, as well as by e-mail. Some of them are serious, some of them are more sarcastic. You should be able to tell them apart, but be warned! This article’sRead 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

Hello! After ALLLLL the CM Punk blabber last week, I think every single wrestling fan deserved a break. Take a breather. Get some fresh air. Smell the roses. Watch the clouds. Just enjoy life away from all the backstage gossip and never ending rumor mills. That being said, I am back. There are a few topics to discuss, as well as the usual comments. How about we kick it off with a Tweet? Gurung Saurav: Your first impression of The Undertaker character? His #1 Moment? His #1 match? Ah, TheRead More

Well, well, well…I was all set to write my HUGE column on Sting. Everything was paid out and in place. The rumors were roaring about a possible deal, and it was going to be great. Come Wednesday night, my column would be published. Then plans changed in a hurry. All of the stuff about Sting has (predictably) gone nowhere and attention shifted. Out of the blue, Sting was no longer the most talked about man in professional wrestling. Nope. That distinction quickly went to CM Punk. For those still inRead More

Death of Wrestling: Forgetting the Good Stuff

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. So… Battleground… sigh… bigger sigh… But I don’t want to dwell on the bad stuff. I’ve spoken before about pointless gimmick PPVs and I’m sure I will again. I’ve also spoken about bad finishes toRead More

The WWE writing team has been told the Undertaker is “less than 50 percent for WrestleMania,” and that before the writers can present a “grid” (long term storyline planning) to Vince McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon for review, Undertaker needs to be examined, as he is “not medically cleared” as of yet. A member of the writing staff said, “this is going down to the wire, and members of the team actually joke that we’ll find out on the Internet about Taker before we’re told definitively here!” No wordRead More

FATP: 5 Bold Predictions for 2013

It’s time for the latest FATP with yours truly. Welcome along for the ride! It’s gonna be chock-full of my usual brand of ranting and raving, with maybe a sprinkling of positivity. Maybe. It feels pretty strange to be sitting down and writing a blog. I’ve not done any writing for about 2/3 weeks. The FATP Awards and WWE Year in Review were written WELL before Xmas and to be honest, I was a little bit sick of wrestling at that point. I’ve only really watched Impact and Raw fromRead More

- Many people speculated that Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, who participated in Tough Enough last year and was brought in as a celebrity guest WrestleMania XXVIII week, would have a WWE contract waiting for her if she opted for a professional wrestling career. She, however, says that’s not the case. When asked on Twitter whether she would be joining the organization again, she responded, “They don’t want me.” – Billy Gunn, who appeared on Raw 1,000, is the newest addition to WWE.com’s Alumni section.

Grantland.com published a lengthy article Tuesday on the life and controversial wrestling career of Kevin Nash with the six-time world champion notably reiterating his stance on “Vanilla Midgets,” a dismissive term he used behind-the-scenes in the late ’90s in World Championship Wrestling to describe small-statured, gifted technical wrestlers such as Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Nash said the professional wrestling industry died at WrestleMania XX when the pay-per-view event concluded with Benoit and Guerrero—both of whom were under six-feet-tall—reigning atop as world champions and emotionally celebrating. Chris Jericho, who workedRead More
