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.
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.
It’s unfortunate that some professional wrestlers are picked to win a title at the wrong time in the business. For Eric Young, Thursday night’s win over Magnus on TNA Impact Wrestling and the TNA World Title reign could not have come at the worse time for him as a professional.
This week's TNA Impact Wrestling show opens with Dixie Carter stepping out of a limo. She tells AI she has a lot to say, just not right now.
Before his untimely passing, The Ultimate Warrior was given a rare chance to save his WWE legacy. This opportunity turned out to be Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Collection and it will give you a new appreciation for one of wrestling's most polarizing figures.
There are several pro wrestling podcasts, hosted by personalities from the business or journalists. I’ve listened to those. Not a huge fan. With that said, here are a few thoughts on the the premier wrestling podcasts, for those on the fence about jumping in and finally listening.
By the looks of things, Warrior was a healthy man when he collapsed Tuesday night. But we really do not know the man behind the muscles, the rope-shaking and the cryptic messages he delivered to the heavens with the millions of fans watching.
It is an ending that you would normally find in a Hollywood story – the vanquished hero returns for one last hurrah before his time on Earth is done.
Now that the WrestleMania 30 dust has settled it is time for the WWE to get cracking on WrestleMania 31. I thought it would be fun to take a look at a potential card a year ahead of time and try and predict a card for the 2014 San Jose event.
The Ultimate Warrior's WWE career is unparalleled by anyone else's body of work. Here is a rundown of the ten most memorable moments of a career marked by glory, controversy, and unquestioned uniqueness.
As a KISS fan for 37 years, I am no stranger to the deep division between the original members. I am not surprised that this has happened. I must point out that the band members, especially Gene and Paul, have much disdain for the Rock Hall.
I am not sure what shocked me more form Monday night – the fact that Daniel Bryan remained the WWE World Champion after the show, or the solid move by the company to have Cesaro turn on Zeb Colter and become the newest “Paul Heyman Guy.” This is a move that will undoubtedly move Cesaro – although still a heel – toward stardom and a potential title.
The pro wrestling world woke up Wednesday to a shocker. Days after returning to the WWE and being inducted into the Hall of Fame, The Ultimate Warrior passed away leaving a wife and two children behind.
The Ultimate Warrior's thrashing theme music blared in SkyDome, moments after he achieved a coup the likes of which would hardly be rivaled until Brock Lesnar ended Undertaker's WrestleMania streak days ago: Warrior pinned heroic Hulk Hogan cleanly.
This is going to be a tough one for some of you out there to swallow. This probably won’t be the most popular thing I ever blog about but I am going to say it. Triple H is the best in the business and the WWE is lucky to have him. He is that damned good.
In the end, WrestleMania delivered on its promise to make wrestling matter. From the beginning when The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Steve Austin were all in the ring together, the WWE took it up a few notches for the good of the company and the good of business.
WWE WrestleMania XXX is now in the history books, and while it was an overall disappointment (worth the $9.95 on the WWE Network but not the $50+ on pay-per-view), there were more than a few memorable moments. There were big winners and even bigger losers.
