Celtic Warrior on standing out: In a recent interview with South Africa’s Tonight, Sheamus discussed making him self stand out when he was a WWE rookie… “I was a brand-new kid who no one knew,” Sheamus said. “In the past I had cut my red hair, but I decided to do an image change and let it grow so people would remember me. Also, they saw the pale white skin which became part of my look. My success in a matter of months even had some wrestlers jealous, but I was happy to announce that I was here to stay.” Jericho off on another Fozzy tour: Chris Jericho wrapped up his latest run with WWE at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings, as he’s off touring with Fozzy in August through mid October. He has free time and some points in-between that may allow him to wrestle, though it’s not clear if he will since his current deal has expired. Jericho wrote on Twitter… “So long to @WWE for now…2013 was one of my favorite in ring yrs ever! Thx for always sticking w Y2J & see u on the road soon w @FOZZYROCK!” It’s most likely we won’t see him again until 2014. WWE 2K14 Screen shots: Here are the first round of screen-shots for the upcoming WWE 2K14 video game, fetauring Ultimate Warrior… Fan writes book we all agree with: Wrestling fan Craig Higham has written a promising looking boo entitled: “Stop Telling Us It’s Fake: ​A Wrestling Fan’s Journey 1977-2012″ – here is the promotional blurb… If like me you have been a professional wrestling fan for any length of time, then like me you would have heard over and over again that annoying question asked by non wrestling fans “YOU KNOW WRESTLING IS FAKE DON’T YOU?” After over 30 years of hearing that question I have decided to finally answer those non wrestling fans through a well thought out, informative and personal recount on why I (and many other normal people) love this form of ‘sports entertainment’ and why knowing it is not as real as we thought when we were young continue to watch and enjoy professional wrestling. Enjoy a historical trip down memory lane as a go through the history of wrestling for the past 30 years through my eyes, as I compare the different wrestling eras, compare the main wrestling companies, discuss how the internet has changed how us fans interact with wrestling and explain who my favourite wrestlers, tag teams and matches over the past 30 years have been. And the next time someone asks you THAT question you can simply tell them to go and buy my BOOK!!! You can order a copy Here
