here's no bad matches to be found here; every entry is rewatchable time and time again. With TLC and Money in the Bank upping the ante of the classic ladder match, this list will cover a lot of ground, and no doubt provide a little argument fodder. Enjoy!
The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony may be many months away but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from keeping busy. A new report cites several names in consideration of next year’s honors, with the Attitude Era dominating the field.
When you look past WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and even King of the Ring, what have been the best PPV events in WWE history? I pored through the last two decades of the promotion, and came up with this list of secondary-PPV excellence.
While fans may irate at Triple H and Stephanie for stripping Daniel Bryan of the WWE world title, they are hardly the first executives to make that decision. Here is a look back at the history of vacated WWE titles and the circumstances behind those controversial decisions.
The WWE would finally bring a PPV to my hometown with the 1996 King of the Ring. I had seen a house show at the Milwaukee Arena before and while it was cool to see the ring for the first time, when I saw King of the Ring, everything blew me away.
We had written last week about a report that WWE 2K15 video game was going to be released in March 2015 in conjunction with WrestleMania 31. That no longer appears to be the case. 2K Sports released a statement on Twitter announcing a change in the date.
Get Ready: #WWE2K15 launches on 10/28, internationally 10/31 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. pic.twitter...
WWE Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber last year featured the main event matches between The Rock and CM Punk for the WWE championship. The numbers released today during the WWE first quarter conference call showed a decrease this year for those two shows.
The Royal Rumble pay-per-view had 467,000 buys, down from 512,000 buys in 2013. The event produced 443,000 buys in 2012, 446...
Now that Sting is finally a part of the WWE, fans are wondering what will become of the future Hall of Famer. With The Undertaker seemingly out of the picture, what do you do with him at WrestleMania 31? How about match him up against another icon?
Sunday, November 14th, 1999 – Joe Louis Arena – Detroit, Michigan – The thirteenth annual World Wrestling Federation Survivor Series pay-per-view was sponsored by Rent-A-Center and Rent-A-Center is responsible, even in name alone, on producing one of my favorite Survivor Series!
What do you do with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31 a year after breaking the Undertaker’s streak at 30? That is the question being asked on social media and a new report reveals some interesting scenarios in discussion for the former UFC and WWE champion.
Now that the WrestleMania 30 dust has settled it is time for the WWE to get cracking on WrestleMania 31. I thought it would be fun to take a look at a potential card a year ahead of time and try and predict a card for the 2014 San Jose event.
About an hour ago we announced the sudden passing of 2014 WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior at the age of 54. Condolences have been running rampant on Twitter from current and past WWE stars.
RIP WARRIOR. only love. HH

Loss always has a way of reminding us to live and love as greatly as we can. My prayers and strength to his family...
John Cena speaks to the media before WrestleMania 30 about the event, the young crop of stars in the WWE and who he would like to work with, wrestling The Rock the last two years, movies and more.

Last night’s WWE Wrestlemania 30 was one of the biggest events of all time. The opening segment of the show was something to remember as we saw three of the biggest names in the history of wrestling in the same ring as we saw Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and The Rock.
All three guys gave each other adulation for what they have done in their respective careers, put over the current...
We haven’t seen The Rock since last year’s WWE Wrestlemania 29 when he lost the WWE Championship to John Cena. Rock had a variety of surgeries following the match and has a done a variety of movies since then.
Rock tweeted a photo last night confirming that he is in New Orleans, which is the site of tonight’s WWE Wrestlemania 30.
I've missed you New Orleans… #HomeAwayFromHome...
Brock Lesnar heads into fourth Wrestlemania this Sunday as he tries to break The Undetaker’s 21-0 streak at Wrestlemania. Lesnar debuted in the company in 2002 with Paul Heyman and became at that time the youngest WWE Champion defeating The Rock at the 2002 Summerslam. “The Beast Incarnate” left the company in 2004 and didn’t return until the day after Wrestlemania 28 in...
It's hard to argue with 1.22 million buys, a WWE record, so some would say that a year-long build is the way to go. Rock would remain a part of WWE in a limited capacity, sticking around to challenge for the WWE Title at the 2013 Royal Rumble, but we'll get to that next year.
John Cena's entrance of the year: a church choir, singing over a montage of Cena photos and videos of his youth. If you're going to do a church choir, can't you get a James Brown impersonator to sing in preacher garb while Cena yells "THE BAND, ELWOOD! THE BAND!"? Is that too much to ask?
So there's been 30 WWE Championship (World Heavyweight excluded) matches in WrestleMania history, including none at the original, and two each at IX and X. Since WrestleMania XXX is nigh, and people loooooove reading subjective rankings, why not rank all 30 bouts from worst to best? Okay? Okay.
What I wouldn't give to relive the WWE WrestleMania 19 era. I was 19 years old and making insane money delivering pizza for just 25 hours a week. Seriously, the tips I made were great, given I live in the midst of middle class suburbia.
Some of the best WrestleMania stories weren’t necessarily told inside of the ring. Disagreements and controversies behind classic WWE matches were handled behind the scenes and swept under rug…until now.
Wrestlemania 30 takes place in 13 days from the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The top matches on the show include Daniel Bryan vs HHH, Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker, Randy Orton vs Batista vs either Bryan or HHH and John Cena vs Bray Wyatt.
Throughout the next two weeks as we approach the biggest wrestling show of the year, we will be taking a look back at some...
I can't sit here and write a positive rant about a show that I abhorred. It took place forty minutes from my house, though I didn't attend, but I was still looking forward to the first Philly WWE WrestleMania. And it sucked. Bad.
As we head towards the thirtieth anniversary of WWE WrestleMania, there are the matches that did happen. The all-time classics that you’ve seen so many times that you watch them when you close your eyes.
This reminds me a lot like WrestleMania X8 where the fans seemed to be more behind Hulk Hogan than they were behind The Rock building up to the event in Toronto.ts, The Shield & General Thoughts on WWE Elimination Chamber 2014
