Our long national nightmare may finally be over. Ratings talk is on the run and may be over for good. Finally! What went from a weekly observation in 1996 to a justification for half baked takes in the 2000s to a toxic point scoring tool on Wednesday nights in 2020 may finally have breathed its … Continue reading RIP Ratings Talk
A Wrestling Union: Is it possible?

So of course twitter was lit up with a lot of people jumping from A to Z and concluding that she got released because of the … Continue reading A Wrestling Union: Is it possible?
Talking about racism….again
It's been a week since the great dragging of Tessa Blanchard began. If you're not up to speed Tessa was set to win the Impact World Title at their pay per view Hard to Kill this past Sunday, a historic feat in which a woman would be winning what is considered a men's title (Impact … Continue reading Talking about racism….again
Time to Go
Jim Cornette absolutely stepped in it this week when he said during the most recent episode of NWA Power that Trevor Murdoch was so tough he could ride through Ethiopia with a bucket of fried chicken..........yeahhhhh, that's no good.

2018 Year in Review
With only a few days left, I am going to attempt to do another Year in Review thing here. If you've read any of my previous attempts, sometimes I finish for every thing I talk about (books, movies, wrestling, TV) and sometimes I barely finish one category. Wrestling gets the most traffic around these parts … Continue reading 2018 Year in Review

I did not see the show myself, but from all accounts I got from people I trust it was a good show and worth the price of admission. More importantly the people who supported it are … Continue reading What comes after All In?
A night at NOVA Pro Wrestling
My wrestling fan quest for 2018 continued this past weekend in Northern Virginia for a local indie NOVA Pro Wrestling. I got wind of them through social media and finally had a few free hours on a Saturday so I figured why not give them a shot. If you feel so inclined and there's one … Continue reading A night at NOVA Pro Wrestling
Ring of Honor Best in the World Recap
In an effort to become a more well rounded wrestling fan I started watching Ring of Honor a few months ago, and when I found out they were holding a pay per view event within driving distance I figured why not take a look at how their bigger shows play. To be honest I was … Continue reading Ring of Honor Best in the World Recap
