REPOST: GLOW Revival “Dead On Arrival” Due To Shady Promoter; Several Girls Not Paid

REPOST: GLOW Revival “Dead On Arrival” Due To Shady Promoter; Several Girls Not Paid

We’ve been on a bit of a GLOW kick here at Ringbelles for the last week or so. Having talked to the utterly charming and intelligent Angelina Altishin (GLOW’s Little Egypt) for the most recent edition of the Women of Wrestling Podcast, we’ve been keeping an eye on goings-on at Cauliflower Alley’s 2012 Reunion, where Lisa Moretti (aka GLOW’s Tina Ferrari and WWE’s Ivory) was honoured, Angelina presented two seminars to atendees, and several GLOW … Read entire article »

Dean Ambrose is The Next Big Deal In Pro Wrestling

Dean Ambrose is The Next Big Deal In Pro Wrestling

There aren’t many times when I look at a young wrestler and try to predict his future in the business. But there is a new guy about to be called up to the main roster and debut. There isn’t a single thing about him that ever needs to be changed. And to think, he’s still in his infancy. You are about to witness what could potentially go down as one of the business’ greatest antagonists. … Read entire article »

How To Book Ted Dibiase Jr.

How To Book Ted Dibiase Jr.

If I were a betting man, I would have taken a huge loss on this one. If you frequent my writings, you’ll see my constant praise for Dolph Ziggler. Well, it wasn’t so long ago when I was singing the same praises for a guy named Ted DiBiase Jr. What the hell happened to this guy? His ring skill was as technically sound as they come! How could you miss with this kid? Not to … Read entire article »

Passing A Torch With No Flame?

Passing A Torch With No Flame?

Back in the 90’s, when the n.W.o. gimmick started to fade with the overkill of adding older wrestlers who flat out refused to put over the younger talent, I was a huge advocate of passing the torch to the next generation of young stars whop would bare the burden of carrying the success of the industry on their backs. After all, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Bret Hart and Randy Savage only had so much left … Read entire article »

Put The IC Title Back On Cody Rhodes

Put The IC Title Back On Cody Rhodes

It bothers me that WWE creative always seems to drop the ball in the push of their brightest stars. In the beginning it was. Rhodes was paired with Ted DiBiase Jr and Randy Orton as part of Evolution – a trio of kids riding on their family name. But since the “evolution”, Orton has become one of the company’s biggest stars, and DiBiase…, well, he’s still trying to find himself. Cody Rhodes is much more … Read entire article »

Blast From The Past – Ultimate Warrior vs. Tully Blanchard

Blast From The Past – Ultimate Warrior vs. Tully Blanchard

Remember the good ‘ol days of pro wrestling? You’re probably too young. But if you’re old like me, maybe it takes you back to a happier time. Ah, I miss those good days. Days when performers wouldn’t overkill the roster. And what I mean by that is that in today’s pro wrestling product, there is no room for imagination. There is no room to daydream and fantasy book. There is no room for the excitement … Read entire article »

Do I Really Need To Discuss That Pitiful Episode of RAW?

Do I Really Need To Discuss That Pitiful Episode of RAW?

I can’t believe that it’s Wednesday night, and I keep getting emails from YOU fans asking, – “Aren’t you going to make any mention of this week’s RAW?” Do I really need to? The fact that I haven’t written anything about it should sum it up, shouldn’t it? Well, rather than getting into all the details, let’s do like we to the one night stand girls and just hit the right sports and get the hell … Read entire article »

Return of The House Show

Return of The House Show

Epico and Primo are your new WWE tag team champions! …And it happened at a house show! I absolutely LOVE that! There is no need for title changes to be exclusively reserved for televised events. Thenight Hogan beat the Shiek at the Garden, no one knew it was coming. The night Savage beat Sanatana for the IC title in Boston, no one knew it was coming. The nights Bret defeated Flair in Saskatoon, Diesel defeated … Read entire article »

DieHard Derek Joins The Greg DeMarco Show

When people read DieHard Derek’s comments and opinions on the pro wrestling business – they tend to feel that I come from the perspective where the glass is half empty rather than being half full. Truth of the matter is, that in this business – the glass IS half empty! And so if the brain capacity. I’m not trying to be negative, but I am offering strong constructive criticism. Not because I know better than those there (although I most likely do) but because I’d like to educate the new generation of wrestling fans in the true art form of pro wrestling. When I fell in love with the business many moons ago, there was a magic. There was a formula. There was common fucking sense! What you youngsters see and … Read entire article »

Tales From The Booker Launches

Tales From The Booker Launches

I get TONS of emails asking about my time n the pro wrestling industry and if I have any interesting stories that I can share. For the most part, I like to keep most of my experiences to myself because I’m not the type to kiss and tell. Don’t take that in the literal sense. I’m not talking about stories of me fucking female wrestlers and ring rats. I mean that in the general sense … Read entire article »
