Why We Miss CM Punk

It’s been a long time since CM Punk walked out on the WWE and its fans. If you remember, it was the night after the Royal Rumble this year when he showed up to Raw and refused to go along with what was happening. He said he was done, and he meant it. We’ve yet to see CM Punk since he was eliminated from the Royal Rumble which is a tremendous tragedy to every serious pro wrestling...

It’s Smart Business for WWE to Change Superstar Names

There’s been a fair amount of controversy in recent years over WWE’s decision to rebrand most superstars that enter the company. This issue flared back up again at last week’s NXT TakeOver 2, when international sensation Kenta made his debut and immediately announced a new identity. And, in response, fans put up a big stink about it.   @LingusMafia The wrestler that Kenta...

WWE RAW Rating Slides, NFL Goes Up

And now WWE RAW starts to feel the pressure from NFL competition… On Monday night, the company’s flagship show took a tumble against better football match ups. The show wasn’t hyped as much as last week’s disappointing mess (and there wasn’t a Jerry Springer in sight), but it was the last WWE RAW before Sunday’s Night of Champions pay-per-view. As such, expectations...

WWE RAW Review 9/15/2014: The Half-Time Show

Hey, you, loyal WWE RAW viewer. One who never misses an episode. Did you know Monday Night Football was back? Did you know that the NFL is probably going to beat WWE in ratings from now until 2015? Oh, you didn’t? So last night’s WWE RAW booking probably made zero sense then, huh? Funny how that works… Segments This show teased a certain amount of hope by opening up with Paul...

Sheamus Wants a Piece of Justin Bieber

It’s been a strange year for Sheamus both in and out of the ring.  He’s come back from a serious shoulder injury but has been pretty lost in the shuffle despite being the current United States Champion.  While on a trip to his homeland Ireland over the summer, he was linked to playing Darth Vader in the upcoming Star Wars 7 movie which he recently shot down.

Enzo and Big Cass are The Next NXT Stars

For all the criticism they receive these days, the WWE seems to have gotten one thing absolutely, unequivocally right: NXT. Homegrown talents and indie darlings alike are brought into the WWE fold, given a stage away from the bright and confusing lights of Raw where they can hone their talents and characters in front of a much smaller crowd. It’s given us WWE’s next crop of superstars...

Video: Bray Wyatt Promotes Raw on Lafayette Morning Show

Bray Wyatt is definitely his own guy.  And that really stands out in his WWE persona as this dark, mysterious man with his own set of beliefs which really isn’t too far from the real man. So, it was quite interesting a few months ago when the WWE decided to have Wyatt start speaking with the media to promote various live events like the one he did with me for this website (which...

Dean Ambrose: Missing But Not Forgotten

Dean Ambrose was starting to be really breaking new ground in terms of his popularity going to that next level. The long feud he has been having with Seth Rollins has really allowed him to shine as a performer. It seems to go against logic to suggest that as he was just starting to peak his going away for a movie role is a good thing. Strangely, it has been though, as fans have noticed...
