Why Nikki Bella’s WWE Return Works

Since Nikki Bella returned to the WWE last summer, she has had her hands full.  Dealing with the villainesses of Smackdown is no easy feat for the former Divas Champion.  With her return came the jealousy of such Superstars that they want nothing more than to take Bella out of the equation of the WWE Smackdown Women’s Division. Carmella’s shocking heel turn came at the expense...

How To Book The Undertaker at the WWE Royal Rumble 2017

When Undertaker came out of the back and announced he was competing in the Royal Rumble later this month, there was a bit of discomfort I felt. Would WWE do the unthinkable and have the 51-year-old once-a-year performer not only wrestle in the event for more than a few moments, but was there a chance he wins the match? Personally, I hope not. I have talked with other wrestling bloggers...

Since his return from injury, it is fair to say that Seth Rollins has been a shadow of his former self. The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion is fast becoming nothing more than a spare part on RAW each week and aside from his teasing of reuniting The Shield, is really struggling to add anything to the WWE product. Compare Seth Rollins of 2015 to the Seth Rollins of now and they...

Kenny Omega Done With New Japan Pro Wrestling?

The Phenomenal WWE Year of AJ Styles

A lot went on in the WWE in 2016.  The roster split again between Raw and Smackdown.  A plethora of wrestlers from NXT made the jump into the big leagues of both WWE brands.  But one man arrived with big fanfare at the Royal Rumble and his path only went uphill.  That wrestler is A.J. Styles and he is my 2016 wrestler of the year. Styles is the first wrestler in recent memory...

Apparently, the cat is out of the bag. According to a story on Forbes.com, WWE has decided to take WrestleMania 34 back to the Big Easy in New Orleans.

John Cena Has Reached Ric Flair Status

John Cena has done a lot of things in the world of professional wrestling.  He has accomplished so much, that there is not a lot left for him in the ring.  The WWE knows this.  The writing has been on the wall now for over a year.  He has now hosted Saturday night live, co-starred in main stream movies, and hosts his own show on FOX.  I don’t think there will ever be another...

The Renee Young Equation in The Miz vs. Dean Ambrose WWE SmackDown Feud

One of the feuds that are the focus of Smackdown right now is between Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Dean Ambrose.

Neville is the Leader of the WWE Cruiserweight Pac

Since its inception in September, the WWE Cruiserweight division has received its fair share of criticism. Some of it has been fully justifiable (no storylines, same handful of guys wrestling weekly) and some not so much (the little guys just aren’t entertaining). However, all of that changed at the Roadblock End of the Line PPV when Britain’s own Neville made his dramatic return...

The Lasting Impact of Kayfabe’s Demise in WWE

WWE fans say they want kayfabe. But they’re not getting it, because kayfabe is dead. Critics outside WWE want kayfabe as well. But they’re not going to get it either. Veterans of the business would love to see kayfabe make a comeback, mostly because the lack of it is hurting the product. But they’re going to be disappointed too. Kayfabe is dead in WWE, and that’s just how...
