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.

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!

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.
Now that Brock Lesnar has made history, the question remains, was he the right guy or was there a better choice along way to 21-1? Let’s take a look.
WWE RAW opened up RAW with a tribute to the Ultimate Warrior that will bring chills to even the most hardened of wrestling fans. The WWE are going to make sure that while the Warrior may be gone, he’ll never be forgotten.
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.
Exploring every nook and cranny of the WWE Network map with a grapple-mark's wanderlust, the section I love most, being a thirty-year-old male fogey who still actively buys CDs ("Digital downloads?! In my day...."), is the Old School folder.
This week's WWE Friday Night SmackDown opens with a graphic for Warrior who, as you know, passed away on Tuesday. Michael Cole announces a special this Monday night on RAW.
