WWE: Half Way to Home

I watched the RAW segment between John Cena and Cesaro from Monday night and got the impression the WWE is really on to something. Kevin Owens has become the centerpiece of everything that is good about this promotion – of late.

Mark Henry: Misused, Overlooked and Poorly Booked

There’s nothing like 2011 Mark Henry. He was a man on a mission, hell-bent on reaching the top and wouldn’t let anything stand in his way. He was tough, he was vicious and he was merciless. He wanted to maim, he wanted to destroy and he wanted the World Heavyweight Championship. WWE Night of Champions saw him gain that prize and it was the culmination of 15 year’s worth...

Kevin Owens Is Breaking The WWE Mold

I will be the first to admit that I was wrong and guess what? I was wrong about Kevin Owens. The WWE has shown a commitment to Owens not seen since the Shield and the payoff may be the next elite superstar of the future. As excited as some were about Owens coming in to wrestle John Cena, it was hard to ignore the obvious. The history of WWE creative shows that they get it wrong...

Sasha Banks: Why “The Boss” Will Revolutionize the WWE Divas Division

As we all know, WWE’s Divas division desperately needs a revival. The WWE Universe has made it known that they prefer to see women in professional wrestling be portrayed as something other than sex objects; they prefer to see them portrayed as competent, authentic, worthwhile competitors.

Happy Birthday Terry Funk

If you were wondering, it is still unanswered question as to whether or not Terry Funk – who turns 71 today – is retired from the wars in and out of the wrestling ring.

WWE: Killing Serial Entertainment?

I was really interested in watching The Messengers on the CW Network. It looked intriguing, and I forgot all about the CW’s disaster called The Tomorrow People, it’s penchant for politically motivated inclusions and that it was another retelling of Apocalyptic tales (something Sleepy Hollow did well, but also plays into the theme of this piece). Tomorrow People was a pretty...

WWE: Building One Beast Up, Tearing One Down

The WWE did Roman Reigns a favor when it decided to place him in a program with Bray Wyatt. The idea of taking the company’s would be Superman and pitting him against the master of manipulation at Battleground has all the makings of a great storyline that can only help Reigns ascend further up the company’s food chain.

WWE Monday Night Raw kicked off with the appearance of Brock Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman.

Hilarity ensued shortly after the apology. How awesome is Lesnar’s “Suplex City” shirt...

Buddy Landel: Another Loss in My Generation of Wrestling

At one point in his career, the great Angelo Mosca Sr. once told Ric Flair that if he lived to be 30, he would have lived too long. It may have been a paraphrase of sorts, but it spoke to the renegade lifestyle the “Nature Boy” lived while he was styling and profiling like no other wrestler in the business during the 1980s. Now, 30 something years later, Flair is still acting...
