Alexa Bliss Is The Throwback Valet The WWE Needs

Being an effective manager or valet in professional wrestling is a lost art. The WWE has started to bring managers back into the fold more in the past few years, but it is nothing like years past. Paul Heyman is arguably the best speaker in the business, but he is an “advocate” of one. It works to tremendous effect, but he isn’t a typical manager. He transcends. That is great...

Brock Lesnar was originally supposed to be gay in WWE?

In the early 2000’s, WWE liked to take risks with its on-screen characters. You had the storyline gay couple of Billy Gunn and Chuck Palumbo, who were quite successful as Tag Team Champions, and then you had Eric Bischoff’s Hot Lesbian Action segment that went basically nowhere, but had boys going through puberty going crazy. Another storyline that never made it to television...

Roddy Piper Tells Hulk Hogan Critics To Get Over It (Video)

Arguably, Hulk Hogan’s greatest WWE rival was “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. So naturally Piper would have a lot to say regarding Hogan’s recent fall from grace and TMZ Sports was lucky enough to get it all on video. Piper has been fairly outspoken on Hogan’s mess ever since the first transcript of Hogan using racial slurs was released earlier in the week. Piper has never been...

The indefensible Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan isn’t making it easy. Transcripts released throughout the week featured the WWE icon using slurs and homophobic language. Unfortunately, it has gotten to the point that even his biggest fans are struggling to root for their childhood hero.   I have never been one to demonize a public figure over language. Yet I am still looking for a path of clarity and forgiveness...

Video: John Cena suffers legitimate broken nose on Raw

“Wrestling is fake.” Nothing pisses off wrestling fans more than those three words. The athleticism is real. The training is real.

Fifteen-time world champion and current United States Champion John Cena found that out the very hard way last night on Monday Night...

Terry Bollea's self-destruction: Hulkamania as social construct

Mel Gibson has never had his name legally changed to Martin Riggs nor has he been known to stagger about Hollywood neighborhoods brandishing a prop LAPD badge shouting, “hey, where’s the bad guys?” Thus, socially just and conscientious action film fans can still watch Lethal Weapon and feel somewhat okay about it.
