Lesnar Turned Down Mayweather, Sr., Natalya & Garcia Feud

The Heel Report – Week 2 (2012-2013 Season)

Lockdown approaches and TNA seem to be doing an alright job promoting the PPV, although they are giving far too much time to this whole Garrett thing and the fans are starting to get agitated, even in the Impact Zone. I find it strange that Hogan and Bischoff can’t turn a mirror on themselves, especially when Steiner is spelling it out for them on Twitter, even if he is doing it in an almost undecipherable manner. The WWE is still pretty interesting in its post-Wrestlemania developments, but the Blast FromRead More
For those who haven’t heard, there is a possibility of Kevin Nash returning to WWE. Or should I say, come back. Now, what’s the difference you may ask? Well, dating back to last year Nash signed a legends deal. Knowing Nash and his business sense, it was long term. The deal was probably lucrative money wise, and it had anything wrestling wise in a part time scale. Thing is, I cannot confirm he is under contract. BUT, if we’re talking Nash, he most likely is under a legends deal withRead More

The Heel Report – Week 1 (2012-2013 Season)

The first week of a new report in the 2012-2013 season, and the big change is that from now on I will be showcasing the talent of both WWE and TNA, just like I do on my 411 report. I once said it wouldn’t be fair to do this when I began this report here but since testing things out over on the other site I’ve found that adding TNA to the mix avoids a lot more anomalies from popping up, like guys getting on the chart simply because theyRead More

Adzop: Vintage Gimmick Flashback: Damien Demento

They’ve been discussed more than enough – those over-the-top gimmicks that WWE have created that would never have gotten over in a million years.

I want to spend my time writing about some of the gimmicks that, with a bit of time and effort, could have been a success in WWE. “From the outer reaches of your mind…” Damien Demento.
