Why CM Punk Is The Best Performer in Wrestling Today.

Walk with me for a few minutes. Wrestling used to consume me. A friend introduced me to the show — err, athletic competition, around 1992, around the age of 10. He got me hooked. It was incredible; the athletes, the moves, the pursuit of championships, it all seemed so…legit. I’d tune in every Saturday at 3:00pm to watch Superstars, All-American Wrestling, or whatever feed Canada was lucky enough to sign a deal to get. It got infuriating hearing about all the Pay Per View extravaganzas going down that weren’t viewableRead More

ESPN’s Bill Simmons Reflects On Randy Savage & Wrestling

ESPN.com’s Bill Simmons has a new article online looking at the career of “Macho Man” Randy Savage: “Nobody — repeat, nobody — was more fun to imitate. Savage said everything in quick bursts, with his voice dropping low, then turning loud, then low, then loud, and any time he couldn’t figure out how to end a point, he just screamed, “Ooooohhhhhhhhh yeah!” He used “ooooohhhh yeah!” as a noun, verb and adjective. It never stopped being funny. I could never decide whether the Macho Man was in on the joke.Read More

Blood On The Canvas: Survivor Series Top Ten

With the 24th annual Survivor Series coming up this Sunday, I thought I’d take a look at what I consider to be the top ten greatest matches in the pay-per-view’s long history. Before I start the list though, a few thoughts on this Sunday…. It’s too bad that this PPV will be just another WWE show that delivers a low buyrate, because the Survivor Series is only second to WrestleMania as the longest-running annual event.  It shouldn’t be treated like a “B” show where some last-minute matches are thrown inRead More

Blood On The Canvas: WWE PG vs WWF PG-13

For the last couple of years, there’s been one consistent complaint from older, longtime fans when it comes to WWE television.  It’s a topic that seems to come up about as many times as the Ultimate Warrior squashed his more talented undercard. I’m talking, of course, about the WWE’s PG direction. The summer of 2008 seems to be where Vince McMahon decided to take WWE’s programming and tone it down to fit the current format.  At the time, CM Punk and Triple H were the World Heavyweight and WWE Champions,Read More
