FATP: Chris Jericho’s WWE Return

Phew. This is gonna be tough. I have something to admit to all of you about Chris Jericho’s WWE return. My name’s George, I’m 31 years old and for most of the last 15 years, I’ve been…a Jerichoholic.

Have been since the moment he debuted on Raw in 1999, interrupted The Rock and turned Raw is War intoRead More
World Championship Wrestling
For over a decade it was an integral part of the Jim Crocket Promotions and World Championship Wrestling universes, a two ring cage match designed to cause carnage and to settle score.

Former TNA Announcer Todd Keneley recently spoke to The Shoot podcast. Here are some highlights: TNA’s using cheap finishes in World Title matches: “On PPV in a world title match people deserve a clean finish especially when you look at recent history. You went through an entire reign of Aces & Eights with Bully Ray as a world champion. There you know you’re going to have interference, you know you’re going to have screwy finishes. Then AJ wins the title but now you’ve got Dixie hellbent on getting rid ofRead More
