Pro wrestling in a way is an art form, a balance of performance in the ring and out of the ring with props, managers and commentators making up the vast minutiae of the show we see live on or tape. Along the way, there are some great stars who have not received the just due they deserve.
AJ Styles is a guy who rarely has a bad word to say about anyone or anything. Yet even the man who was at one time the face of his former employer TNA Wrestling couldn’t help but speak the truth about his former employer in a recent interview.Related Posts:It’s Time for TNA Wrestling to Lean on AJ Styles AgainCurious Details About AJ Styles Post-TNA Wrestling PlansMagnus Wins...
This has been one of the busiest NFL offseasons in recent memory. Fantasy football players need to pay attention on all of the recent moves which is why I thought I'd break down 10 on offense that are likely to shake things up next season.
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?
While this pay-per-view is one that has a Brock Lesnar feel for it, Kane – whether he captures the WWE World Title or not – will be the destructive force of the pay-per-view and will shine like never before.
For the most part, I tend to be a loner (a loner, Dottie, a rebel). As such, I like to do things by myself. I like to watch wrestling alone. Despite the fact that I love to write about it, I don’t really enjoy talking about it with other people.
Chances are, if you wrestled your final WWE match at the tender age of twenty, you'd mope about it bitterly for years following. Not if you're Zach Gowen.
The move to reunite Triple H with Randy Orton and Batista was bound to happen once Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Title and Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins all jumped to the side of good. There is a revived feel within the confines of the company. It smells like success.
When Global Force Wrestling first became a thing, I have to admit that I rolled my eyes. But, as a person who is starving for wrestling, any attempt to bring new talent to a wider audience should be respected.
The WWE paid tribute to the Ultimate Warrior last week with a full week of specials on the WWE Network. Yet it was their documentary, Warrior: The Ultimate Legend that was truly nothing short of ultimate.
This week's WWE Friday Night SmackDown is headlined by a battle for former WWE world heavyweight champions as Batista takes on Sheamus.
TNA Impact Wrestling opens with Eric Young standing in the ring. He says he won the belt for himself, but he will be a champion for the fans. This is his way of paying the fans back. 10 years of unsolicited support for him, and this is payback.
The fact that both Kane and Daniel Bryan have worked well together in tag team wrestling and on other sides of the ring makes for a very enjoyable program heading into Extreme Rules.
For years, the one wrestler who Vince McMahon could not make part of his circus up north was the missing piece to a WCW puzzle that was never complete. Now that appears to be no longer an issue.
I know I am not the only one thinking it so I’ll just say it. The WWE’s reaction to the death of former champion Ultimate Warrior is one of the most bizarre things I think I have ever seen in over 30 years as a pro wrestling observer.
“Without further ado, I’ll introduce to you my mystery partner. Lead to the ring by his manager, Brother Love, weighing in at 325 pounds, from Death Valley, I give you The Undertaker. *DiBiase Laughter*“-Survivor Series 1990 (November 22nd, 1990).
Leave it to the world's greatest master manipulator to goad one of the biggest stars in wrestling history into one more match. Paul Heyman may have done the unthinkable which is entice Stone Cold Steve Austin to get in a WWE ring for one more time.
WWE Extreme Rules 2014 is still a few weeks away but reports of a possible card have leaked out. I think it’s fair to say that if these reports are true, the WWE aren’t as hot on pushing Daniel Bryan as you would have thought coming out of WrestleMania 30.
The contrast between the infamous 2014 Royal Rumble and present WWE programming is a stark one. On the one hand, watching a DVD of this year's Rumble is akin to viewing the videotape in The Ring; you could actually be found dead within a week via its horrors.
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!
The WWE may now be faced with the question that many of us knew would be the elephant in the room - "How does the company begin to book Daniel Bryan as the new WWE World Champion?"
It has been just over a week since the streak of the Undertaker officially came to an end, and I am still in a bit of shock. Like many in the WWE Universe I was expecting the Undertaker to continue his ridiculous streak of only wrestling once a year for many years to come.
I cannot say right now how Rose, Zayn and The Ascension will do at this level because I have not seen them enough to fairly judge them. I just have to rely on the assessments of those who have forgotten more about pro wrestling development than I ever will know.
Don't look now, but it appears the WWE has gotten it together and put the members of Evolution back into circulation as the new villains of the company to go along with the wilting "Authority" angle.
The pro wrestling world continues to remain in a state of shock at Brock Lesnar ending the streak. Yet now that a week has passed, what may be more fascinating than the end of an era may be the details surrounding this shocking result.
