“Remembering the Ultimate Warrior”

“Remembering the Ultimate Warrior”

As I sit here writing this, it is 12:21AM, technically the day after of hearing the devastating news of the passing of my childhood hero, “The Ultimate Warrior.” As many of the rest of you who will be reading this, I too, grew up an 80’s kid, who loved the “then” WWF. I became a fan of wrestling in 1977, and one day on a separate post I will go in depth how that came … Read entire article »

The Rock Looks Like He’s Been Eating Rocks

The Rock Looks Like He’s Been Eating Rocks

Has anyone seen Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson lately? Not since the night after Wrestlemania when he announced that he would be “back” and that his little epiphany told him that his next goal was to regain the WWE title. Yeah, that’s about the last time I saw him too. I wasn’t sure if he had been taken off TV because Brock Lesnar had returned and they weren’t sure exactly how creative would get The Rock into … Read entire article »

Working with WWE Star R-Truth

Working with WWE Star R-Truth

You meet some pretty interesting people in the pro wrestling business. You realize that outside of the characters they portray on television, they actually are human beings.

ECW Died On RAW

ECW Died On RAW

Extreme Championship Wrestling wasn’t a wrestling organization. It was a cult. I say that in the most sincerest form. I lived through it. I wasn’t a cult follower, but I was around it. I saw it born. I saw it grow. And on Monday night, I saw it die. Ever since the original organization fathered by Paul Heyman officially folded in 2001, there have been numerous attempts to resurrect it. But instead of finding Dr. Frankenstien … Read entire article »

Brock Killed Tensai

Brock Killed Tensai

I hate to be the one to break the bad news, but this little Lord Tensai experiment is dead on arrival. I’m not here to poke holes in everything that WWE creative puts out there. I know how difficult it is to make an engaging product that connects with the fans, and something that is marketable and profitable. And had it not been for the return of the beast Brock Lesnar, this may in fact have … Read entire article »

Will You Buy Cena vs. Laurinaitis?

Will You Buy Cena vs. Laurinaitis?

Call me crazy, but after coming off of Wrestlemania 29 which headlined with John Cena vs. The Rock, and then rushing into Extreme Rules to get the John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar nut off prematurely, who in their right mind would pay to see Super Dave take on the face of the organization? I’m still trying to figure out exactly what creative is doing with Cena. I understand the concept of letting him work “featured” … Read entire article »

Devon Nicholson Challenges Kurt Angle: Real Challenge or Real Good Way To Get Your Name Out There?

Devon Nicholson Challenges Kurt Angle: Real Challenge or Real Good Way To Get Your Name Out There?

Anybody ever heard of “Hannibal” Devon Nicholson?…Neither have I. At least, not until now. From what I understand, he was a Canadian mainstay on the indies and had a dark match or two for the WWE – but that’s about it. I’m not shitting on the guy because I don’t know him or his work. But at the same time, when you Google his name and read through the Devon Nicholson Wikipedia (that was … Read entire article »
