Camacho
Former WWE superstar Tevita Fifita, better known as Camacho, recently participated in an exclusive interview with PWMania.com. Fefita talks about his time in WWE, his character’s direction, his relationship with Triple H and Vince McMahon, his involvement in NXT and more. It’s a pleasure to have you with us, Tevita. So, how did you decide to pursue a career as a professional wrestler? In the summer of 2004, I was going into my senior year of college and I was playing football. I called my older brother and told himRead More

Fear, Loathing, and the WWE Network

One week ago, Vincent Kennedy McMahon lost his billionaire status in a single day. For a man with as gigantic an ego as McMahon, the loss was pretty brutal. One third of his net worth vanished to the vagaries of Wall Street. Some people blamed the meager increase of WWE’s television deal with NBC Universal, others blamed anemic (by Wall Street’s standards) subscription numbers for the WWE Network. There probably wasn’t one particular reason, as the stock market is a place prone to unreasonable standards and herd mentality, where ifRead More

It’s been noted to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer that Paul Levesque has been put in an impossible position when it comes to talent relations. The reason why is because at the end of the day Vince McMahon is still the guy who has final say on everything and he changes his mind frequently. It’s something that has been frustrating to talent. Sometimes they are told something by Levesque and then Levesque is put in the position to later explain to them that what he told them is no longerRead 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

Death of Wrestling: Batista

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 I said to my brother in law that if Batista wins the Rumble then I’m going to stop watching wrestling… Batista won the Rumble and in all honesty, I’ve kind of stopped watching wrestling…Read More
The Authority - Triple H & Stephanie McMahon
Week after week, wrestling power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their presence felt on WWE programming by laying down the law and brandishing their own style of corporate justice, all in the name of doing what’s ‘best for business.’ Yet in 2014, are on-screen decision makers really what pro wrestling needs? Or has the tired role of the Authority Figure truly had it’s day? If you’ll indulge me for a moment, I’d like to play the role of the cynical old fan who firmly believes that things wereRead More

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: Out With The Old, In With The New

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve not watched any current wrestling (from either WWE or TNA) for the last 3 weeks because I’m incredibly frustrated with the product at the moment. When I’ve been in that kind of mood before, a lot of you have told me to stop watching or shut up. You’ll be glad to know that I’ve taken your advice and I’ve stopped watching! However, it makes me feel better when I listen to guys like Dave Meltzer, Jason Powell and Wade KellerRead More
