Terry Bollea's self-destruction: Hulkamania as social construct

Mel Gibson has never had his name legally changed to Martin Riggs nor has he been known to stagger about Hollywood neighborhoods brandishing a prop LAPD badge shouting, “hey, where’s the bad guys?” Thus, socially just and conscientious action film fans can still watch Lethal Weapon and feel somewhat okay about it. On the night of November 17, 2006, Michael Richards was not...

Rikishi brings up images of the worst aspects of the “Attitude” era: a more comedic wrestler, a fat guy sticking his butt in other wrestlers faces, and all that “Kiss my...

Hulk Hogan: This is NOT the News the WWE Needs Right Now

The WWE moved swiftly to distance itself from Hulk Hogan after news of his use of a highly sensitive racial slur became the hot topic on the Internet and with media outlets worldwide.

John Cena and Seth Rollins: WWE SummerSlam’s Logical Co-Main Event

I might have been wrong when I prematurely said John Cena would lose his United States Championship at Battleground last weekend. And I might have been wrong when I said John Cena would dip farther into the mod-card once he dropped the match at the pay-per-view to Kevin Owens. Evidently, “The Champ” may get another crack at the WWE World Title. All this proves, over and over...

Cesaro and the WWE Eternal Struggle of Ability vs. Character

Cesaro has no charisma. Now don’t get mad, it’s not my fault. For that matter it’s not his fault, you either have it or you don’t.

I attended my first WWE house show on March 19, 1983. I attended dozens of WWE house shows from 83 until probably 1998 and to...
