The WWE is blowing it…but you probably already knew that coming out of Monday night. The WWE will never an opportunity again to build around someone like Brock Lesnar yet they are doing their best to make sure that their investment pays very little dividends.
WWE Night of Champions is coming up on Sunday, September 21. The event features Brock Lesnar defending the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against former titleholder John Cena. Roman Reigns will face former Shield teammate Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho will square off against Randy Orton.
Believe it or not we are less than eight months before WWE WrestleMania 31. The biggest event of 2015 is the end game for the current WWE creative team and while card is always subject to change, here are some card predictions based on the current landscape.
What’s the deal with Doug Martin? Doug Martin was one of the huge surprises in the NFL a few years ago. His rookie season he rushed for over 1400 yards and caught over 450.
The second season of the Sundace TV show ‘Rectify’ has affirmed its position as one of the best five shows on television, in my opinion. This show takes its time, is extremely easy to watch, and offers a ton of drama through the oft-used paradox character abstruseness.
I am going to limit the list to players who are less than 60% owned on average. My goal is to give you a list each week of players who are most likely still available. No reason to tell you about Terrance West because at 90% owned it isn’t going to help you.
The plum of a weekly fantasy football waiver wire list is a starting running back. Starting RBs are hard to come by, yet unfortunate circumstances this season have already resulted in some nice opportunities. The big question now is with one pick or a limited budget, which RB do you grab?
WWE is heading into Night of Champions 2014 with one of the worst go-home RAW shows I can remember, yet there was one bright spot. The brawl between John Cena and Brock Lesnar highlighted one of the better RAW segments of the year.
We’re to the summer of 1993 and the biggest even that isn’t WWE Wrestlemania...it is SummerSlam.
It was just a few months ago that the pro wrestling world was talking about Bray Wyatt. Today Wyatt is an afterthought, rarely mentioned among today’s WWE topics. Has the rising star of Bray Wyatt faded out?
Before I go into just why NXT is significantly better than the product the WWE puts out for its main show, Raw, I will make a defensible point for Raw. NXT gets to appeal to the more hardcore fans, the type of crowd that would show up to an Indie federation in a bingo hall to cheer on guys that your average fan has never heard of.
I am pretty sure Jim Cornette’s mother would be happy with this story. The man who referred to his mother like you would refer to the love of your life has had a large impact in the wrestling business as one of the best spokesmen in the industry.
Chris Jericho and Roman Reigns team up to take on Seth Rollins and Randy Orton in this week's WWE Friday Night SmackDown main-event.
Coming off a very exciting NFL Week 1 for the 2014 season we saw some surprises, some disappointments and some things that were right on par to what many experts and barroom football guru’s thought what would happen.
I could easily offer you a Start and Sit Em’ with the same usual suspects you can find across the Internet. You already have that information. What you need are the unusual suspects or as we like to call them the Week 2 sleepers.
I applaud TNA for trying to add new life into its niche wrestling program by bringing back former ECW stars to its roster. The added excitement of hardcore rules, the chance to see great tag team action and another opportunity to save TNA from falling off the cliff just may work – for a short amount of time.
Hulk Hogan has never met an interview opportunity he didn’t like. That is evident lately as new Hulk interviews are popping up online weekly. The latest comes from Inside Pulse and while short on time, an interesting conversation nonetheless.
The Big Red Monster. The Big Red Machine. The Devil’s Favorite Demon. The….Director of Operations. You all know him as the baby brother of the Undertaker. One of the longest standing performers in WWE.
The first time I saw the Road Warriors, I have to admit, I was a little scared. Having known wrestling as a “show” of holds and counter holds, strength and resistance, the sight of two men coming to the ring to Iron Man and branding spiked shoulder pads and face paint, they were as bad a badass tag team that there could be.
It should be noted that Big Van Vader is still in the intro and this arena is pretty small for a Nitro arena. In-fact, only 2,031 fans paid to see this show and it had 1,169 freebries. Fall Brawl happened last night, so here are some quick results for those who didn’t watch it on the Network:
I’m a stickler for wrestling tournaments and the WWE King of the Ring was one of the first shows where the concept was exclusively built around a one-night tournament. On top of that, the winner gets a crown, robe and scepter? Yes and please.
Before I get into the guys who are in my Mount Rushmore, I need to breakdown why certain legends are not represented.
Ladies and Gentleman My Name is Paul Heyman may be one of the most inspiring documentaries produced by the WWE. The documentary chronicling the life of Heyman should be required viewing in business schools and marketing classes across America.
First off, I have to give props to WCW as the Nitro set is pretty cool for its time. Nice amount of pyro and lighting, really a step-up from what they had been presenting on Saturday Night. The all-metallic motif would set the standard for pro wrestling sets for years to come.
So it’s the first Tuesday of the season and if you drafted like me you are considering 2 options. The first one being a complete overhaul of your team via the waiver wire and the second is to quit fantasy football all together and learn how to crochet because you have no business near a fantasy roster this season.
