TNA Wrestling are making moves. A couple of days after announcing a new day and time for their TV show, the company is aggressively pursuing the hottest free agent in pro wrestling and he could be coming to Impact in 2015.
Dolph Ziggler has become something of a people’s WWE champion on social media. Fans on social media want Ziggler to be the man and according to a new interview with the intercontinental champ, they may get that wish.
This week's episode is a special live edition, due to this being the 800th episode.
This blog is about the sideline rant that won't go away. I should say, this sideline rant is the one that the sports media won't let disappear. Yes, that cuss-fest on the sidelines of the November 30th Green Bay Packers vs New England Patriots game has reared its ugly head once again. I wish that this bit of news was a joke, but it's not. I still can't believe I am going to write about it.
Alright, alright, ALRIGHT. I don’t want to hear it, don’t waste your time. I was able to see the same game you all saw this past week and was disgusted at the heinous portrayal that was there for all to see……..watching Johnny Manziel in his first game was more of a punishment than enjoyment (unless you have some general knowledge about Manziel and hate him already).
It is finally here for some of you, your fantasy football championship week. Unfortunately with big games comes big pressure, and the wrong decision can result in an early exit and an offseason of depression.
WWE fans are buzzing after NXT’s REvolution event that occurred on Thursday, December 11. The night was filled with some very solid wrestling, top notch entertainment and overall was an impressively strong card.
I do not believe what I just saw! For those of you who missed the end of Raw Monday night, Seth Rollins appears to have made a deal with the devil. The hand shake heard around the world – where Brock Lesnar looked on over a beaten John Cena as Rollins and Paul Heyman essentially sealed the fate of “Superman” at the Royal Rumble.
Don’t count the dead man out of WrestleMania just yet. A new report indicates that the demise of the Undertaker may have been premature and the WWE Universe may be in line for another dose of darkness at WrestleMania 31.
Not everyone is excited about CM Punk coming to the UFC. Punk has now become the target of one angry UFC fighter who believes that Punk’s UFC deal is making a complete mockery of the sport and guess what…he’s right.
In 2014, 'extreme' is passe without innovation or a story to tell. That wasn't any more evident than during TLC on Sunday night, with no less than five (!) gimmick matches promising carnage and the eradication of a fighter's will to carry on.
WWE Tables, Ladders, and 2014 will be remembered for the stunt show it was intended to me. The final special event of 2014 featured the return of Roman Reigns and the set up for what may be the most unexpected WrestleMania match of 2015.
Six weeks and counting. If the WWE wanted to leave us pondering what can happen in six weeks at the Royal Rumble in Philadelphia, it did a good job by setting the table at the TLC pay-per-view Sunday night.
This week's episode opens with John Cena making his way down to the ring. He says in two days, it's the TLC PPV. That means that in two days...
In between his stints as a rock star and WWE superstar, Chris Jericho has quickly become a great interviewer. Jericho’s recent podcast with Dean Ambrose is no better example as he got the current star to share some candid feelings on the current WWE style.
Roman Reigns won the Slammy award for WWE Superstar of the year on Monday Night Raw. The big Samoan has been out of action for a while due to injury and his appearance on the program was surely a great moment for fans that have been anxious for his return.
In light of the recent Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn angle in WWE NXT, the CCB is re-publishing a blog from 2010 documenting their classic rivalry from Ring of Honor. This blog was originally published on December 9, 2010.
What if I told you that you may never see the WWE World Title around the race of a Seth Rollins or Dean Ambrose or even Roman Reigns? What if I told you the stars in the company are there to tease and please you and give you a false sense of hope, would you believe me?
Do you hear that? Listen closely….It is the sound of Johnny Manziel rallying the Cleveland Browns and sending them into the playoffs. Don’t confuse my optimism with thinking Manziel can be a future great or a Hall of Famer.
CM Punk is once again a hot commodity. The former WWE champion is on everyone’s minds after signing with the UFC. Punk is doing a lot of media and as expected, is shooting straight about his trajectory from the wrestling ring to the octagon.
That first concern flows into the second: the unwritten notion that each Cage of Death must somehow top the previous. There's enough of a following for Combat Zone Wrestling that its awed acolytes remember the dizzying heights (or carnaged depths) of those bloodstained benchmarks. Can-you-top-this gone berserk.
It was the year of the WWE Network and the year of Batista’s brief return. It was the year The Shield broke up and Bray Wyatt was, for what feels like a fleeting moment now, the coolest thing in pro wrestling.
Wrestlers like Brock Lesnar followed as did Shelton Benjamin. If there wasn’t a Kurt Angle, neither of these two mayhave enjoyed success in a business geared more toward predetermination than thinking on their feet.
Vince McMahon was critical of roster on the Steve Austin podcast for not grabbing the brass ring like Austin's peers in the Attitude Era did. Maybe it is time for Vince to take a hard look at himself for failing to give his roster the opportunity to grab those brass rings?
2014 was a memorable year if ever there was one. This was the year that gave us Daniel Wrestlemania moment, Sting in the WWE, the launch of the Network and TNA fighting for survival.
