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

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

Former WWE Diva and first Lady of Ring of Honor, Maria Kanellis took some time to participate in an exclusive in-depth interview with PWMania.com. Maria speaks on a variety of subjects including WWE, ROH, her singing career, the weirdest question she’s ever received, CM Punk and more. Below is the complete interview. It’s a pleasure to have you, Maria. My first question is how did you decide to become a wrestler? I was a big fan growing up. I used to watch it with my little brother and dad. IRead More

Here we go… TNA Lockdown Ticket Sales? Sure, how about a little TNA to start us off? Word on the street is that Lockdown has sold around 1,000 tickets so far for the pay-per-view event next Sunday night. Not too surprising, if true. Unless the company has some huge play coming in the next few days, be on the look out for more “empty arena pictures” next Sunday night to surface online. You would think with MVP being in a big spot, the show would do well in Miami…but nope.Read More

“I honestly think that you are so good (different) at how you approach columns. I know some people take compliments lightly and such, but honestly, you should be a very proud man. Boatloads of people including me, read your columns ALL THE TIME. Me personally, I wake up every morning, and before I go to school, I read your column (I’m 16). Also, your consistency with your columns is amazing, just from reading them so much, I almost feel like I know your thought process (not that I do). SoRead More

No stalling today. Just a few topics and some reader feedback. Raw Rating Let me be clear: On Monday night, WWE Raw was the number one show on cable. Most watched and all that fun stuff. Top of the top! Cause for celebration, right? Not so fast. Obviously, this is excellent news for the company trying to secure a huge television deal. However, the rating/viewership could have been soooooooooooooo much higher. You know how WWE spent a month hyping up Batista’s big return earlier this year? WHERE WAS THAT? Seriously.Read More

By any calculation, Wrestling has a prestigious history. Looking back at certain times, one can trace points where something happened that changed the direction of the industry. The question “what if”, can be applied to just about every walk of life. What if Jordan never retired in the 1990’s? What if Tupac and Biggie were still alive? What if you didn’t drink everything in sight that one night? It’s one of the best questions to ask yourself, because you’ll never really know the answer. Wrestling is no different. Whether throughRead More

Bunch of stuff to discuss before Sunday. My Elimination Chamber predictions should be posted over the weekend. WWE Battleground 2013 Just one quick note: Battleground did a near record low pay-per-view buy rate last October. Not to brag, but I called it! That event never stood a chance, and it was easy to predict a total failure was coming in terms of PPV buys. WWE made up for it three weeks later with Heck on a Deck, so maybe their plan paid off? About 342,000 PPV buys through entire theRead 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

Everybody sick and tired of reading about CM Punk yet? Well, you are all in luck. This will be my last column dedicated to him for awhile. I am sure his name will come up again. No doubt, it will. However, with all things in the news cycle, it is time to move on. First Batista was the big story. Then Daniel Bryan at the Royal Rumble. Now CM Punk leaving. By next week, the ‘talk of the town’ will be something new. Here we go… Jason: “Loved your articleRead 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

Death of Wrestling: Gimmick PPVs

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. Wrestling companies are kind of damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. TNA recently reduced their PPV quota and fans instantly started to wonder whether this is the beginning of the end ofRead More

Adzop – ’13 So Far

Hi everyone.. Apologies for my lengthy absence. With WrestleMania 29 on the horizon, and some of the things that have been going on in WWE, I thought it was time to chime in with some of my thoughts. The Royal Rumble feels like a long time ago. John Cena winning the Rumble match pretty much told us that The Rock would win the WWE Championship in the main event against CM Punk. I expected to see Cena come out and give The Rock a slow clap after the match –Read More
