Ok, I told myself I was done writing about this subject, that I'd said all that I ever had to say and that anyone who wanted to see what I thought could just read the things I'd already written here and in other places. I said to myself that there were other people doing that … Continue reading Revisiting the Past
I figured that with Hell in a Cell on the way in a few days it was time for a Retro Recap of one of the previous offerings of this event. It's only been around as a standalone pay per view since 2009 I believe so there's some history but not like Summerslam or WrestleMania. … Continue reading Retro Recap – Hell in a Cell 2012
So the big story at the end of this week is whether or not Rusev may be leaving the WWE. In just a matter of days he went from being advertised for a casket match in Saudi Arabia against the Undertaker to being removed from that match and replaced with Chris Jericho.

The Undertaker had been absent for months, … Continue reading Retro Recap – WrestleMania 27
(Warning: This post includes gratuitous shots at CM Punk.) Big news today is Bill Simmons leaving ESPN. Simmons started out as a simple blogger, the Boston Sports Guy, who got picked up when ESPN.com created Page 2, a sister site to branch out into other topics that the website's fans might be into. Simmons insights … Continue reading Bill Simmons is CM Punk
CM Punk did an interview with Sports Illustrated, that you can read in it's entirety here. Punk is always interesting to listen to, but the more he talks the more I get irritated with him. The rebel without a cause act wears real thin after a while, and the more he talks the more he … Continue reading CM Punk needs to shut up (again)
