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...

Stone Cold Steve Austin Says No to WWE Comeback

Stone Cold Steve Austin is getting in front of the WrestleMania comeback rumors early. The former WWE champion was recently asked about a comeback on his podcast and it would certainly appear that he has nailed that door shut.

Will John Cena Finally Face the Undertaker at WWE Wrestlemania 33?

After Wrestlemania 32, it wasn’t clear what the fate of the Undertaker was going to be. Pictures of him on crutches after hip surgery shocked fans, and raised questions as to whether he would be physically able to perform at the next Wrestlemania. However, the questions about the Undertaker’s health have been recently dispelled, and it looks as if the Dead Man does have at least...

The Rise of Baron Corbin and Other WWE Thoughts

Daniel Bryan has spoken. The general manager of SmackDown Live has made a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title involving AJ Styles, Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin. Things just got a bit more interesting as the company finishes off yet another year of two steps forward, and two steps back. The addition of Corbin to WWE’s main event was inevitable, and one I applaud the company...

WWE Roadblock Results: End of the Line 2016: Good and Bad Bookings

KICKOFF: BIG CASS w/ ENZO AMORE VS. RUSEV w/ LANA GOOD BOOKING: Big Cass loses by countout If there’s any indication of who WWE wants to eventually push, it’s Big Cass. He’s serviceable on the mic and for a guy his size, he can really move. So having him take clean pinfall/submission loses early would be tough to come back from. Rusev winning by countout allows Big Cass to...

Thoughts on WWE Roadblock and the Company Moving Forward

And so we have it. Add Chris Jericho to a WWE Universal Title match between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens and once again, Jericho proves he is the best the red team has going today. I wasn’t excited about Roadblock going into WWE’s final pay-per-view of the year, and am still not impressed with what I saw. The lame crowd, the matches that did not excite me as in months past and...

WWE 2016 Slammy Award Predictions

The WWE Slammy Awards are around the corner and while the awards make RAW virtually unwatchable and the winners are usually wrong, it’s still worth going through each award and determining who should walk away from 2016 with each accolade. So, with a few additional categories I just made up, here is how the 2016 Slammy Awards should go down. Male Superstar of the Year Candidates...

Five Non-WWE Wrestlers Who Can Be WWE Champion

Arn Anderson is considered one of the greatest wrestlers to never win a world title. There are some who would argue he was a better performer in the ring and a better interview than his Four Horsemen partner and best friend, Ric Flair. Anderson isn’t the only one who never won a world title. There was Tito Santana, Don Muraco and Roddy Piper. Great performers in the ring and could...

How WWE Should Book a Women’s Royal Rumble

The next logical step in the progression of the WWE women’s division is for a full roster Royal Rumble to take place at next year’s pay-per-view. The four hour event will easily be able to hold the two matches and with a WrestleMania shot on the line, the build-up writes itself. The match should have 15 competitors, with entrants coming out every 90 seconds as per usual. Have...

Shane McMahon Made Reported WWE Creative Power Play in 2012

While Shane McMahon’s return to the WWE seemed to come out of nowhere earlier this year, a new report indicates that Shane’s return could have come much sooner if not for a failed coup. A new report on the business from the inside of the WWE reveals a major story that up until now has never been reported. According to a new report on Vice.com, Shane McMahon attempted something...

WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Will Be the Most Unpredictable Rumble Ever

If you look back at the majority of Royal Rumble matches over the last few years, you’ll see a common trend. The winner usually becomes pretty obvious a few months out from the event. Sometimes it even becomes a one-man-Rumble, when no one else even appears to be a chance. Examples of this include the three-year stretch of horrible Rumbles between 2013 and 2015 where John Cena...

WWE 205 Live December 6 Recap and Analysis

Some overall thoughts before we begin: This is essentially the unofficial 3rd hour for Smackdown! Live’s show as it goes on right after Smackdown! Live ends. Because people start leaving at the end of Smackdown! Live, WWE needs to find a way to interest people into staying. The video packages are a great way to introduce the newer talent and give backgrounds to the crowd so they...

Fantasy Football Week 14 Waiver Wire

The fantasy football playoffs are here.  I would ask how you did.  But if you are reading this, you are not here to tell me about you.  Playoffs can be a tricky time in the fantasy football season.  What got you to the playoffs might not win it for you.  As the NFL season comes to a close, teams with set playoff positions consider resting players.  Owners of players like Dak...

nWo: The Revolution WWE DVD Review

One of the most anticipated WWE DVD released I can remember has to be this three-disc set. I went out as soon as I had a chance and bought the new documentary, “nWo: the Revolution.” Granted they put out a documentary of one of the most influential groups in the last 20 years about ten years ago, yet I was excited for the new material for this DVD release and a different perspective...

Major Talent Changes Needed in WWE’s Women’s Divisions

It’s time to cut the dead weight and the WWE need to be brutal. The women’s divisions are in the best shape they’ve ever been in. Main-eventing RAW has become an accepted position for them and the SmackDown division has two strong feuds that don’t revolve around Total Divas, boys or other nonsense. Having said that, there are too many superstars that just don’t belong in...

Enzo Amore: WWE Certified G, Borderline PG14

If there was someone on the WWE roster who can bridge the gap between PG and TV 14, then Enzo Amore is your man.  The bonafide stud certainly has a way with words like no other right now.  While his phrases, or promos if you will, are intellectually clever they give the edge that older WWE fans seek out. Case in point:  The last two weeks on Raw.  Last week, a naked Amore walked...

WWE TLC 2016 Results – What’s Next for The Miz & Dolph Ziggler?

After watching the TLC Ladder Match between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, I am left with many thoughts as to what was one of the best matches of the night at the SmackDown Live pay-per-view. While there were a few comments referring to this feud as one of the best – drawing comparisons to Ricky Steamboat and Randy Savage – I define it as one of the better feuds we have seen in some...
