This question has become a bit of a thing lately, to the point of being asked almost every day on Twitter it seems. And it's wild to see because four years ago, after the debacle that was the WrestleMania 34 main event, I was in this space asking "What to do about Roman Reigns?" The … Continue reading Who should dethrone Roman Reigns?
Retro Recap – Survivor Series 1987
This was the inaugural running of this event, and it's origin is that basically Vince McMahon did not want NWA promoter Jim Crockett getting a foothold in pay per view, and created an event that ran the same night to force cable companies to choose which one they would carry. You see kids back then … Continue reading Retro Recap – Survivor Series 1987
New Day Rocks Forever
The season premiere of Friday Night Smackdown brought with it some new beginnings but also a somber ending. It was on this night that Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, and Big E wrestled what is for now their last match together as a trio. They went with a win over Cesaro, Sheamus, and Shinsuke Nakamura (as … Continue reading New Day Rocks Forever
I've mostly stayed on the sidelines when it came to talking about Roman Reigns since he came back, mainly because I was tired. I'd unloaded damn near every thought I had, found as much factual information to back up my opinions, and I think I covered every angle there was on the man's career. So … Continue reading Roman’s Next
Retro Recap – WrestleMania 6
It's been a while since I've done one of these, and with 'Mania being around the corner I figured I'd get back on the old bicycle. WrestleMania 6 was the first one that I watched live, on something called closed circuit TV. Pay per view was alive and well but the WWF decided to show … Continue reading Retro Recap – WrestleMania 6
A Right to Complain?
Not gonna bother with a flowery intro here. We're a week away from WrestleMania, and what was supposed to be a Smackdown Women's title match got pulled from the show entirely and instead we got an impromptu title match last Tuesday where Charlotte Flair beat Asuka for the title. Now as big a fan as … Continue reading A Right to Complain?
A mess of our own making- Part 1
I'm doing this in two parts because there's a broader point I felt I needed to make and then a more specific point with regards to what's gone on the past couple of years leading up to today's dilemma where the absence of Roman Reigns has now resulted in a situation that a lot of … Continue reading A mess of our own making- Part 1
My wrestling fandom
My interest in the business was initiated with WrestleMania; as a fan of the A-Team and all the prospect of Mr. T teaming up with Hulk Hogan was too much to turn down. Which of course prompted my Dad (who is the reason spoiler alerts were created) to tell me 'it's fake, they're not really … Continue reading My wrestling fandom
Thank You Bruno
The news came down today that Bruno Sammartino passed away at 82 years old. If you don't know, Bruno wasn't just the first big star for what was then the World Wide Wrestling Federation, he was champion for almost eight years uninterrupted and was the prototype for what would come later with Hulk Hogan, the … Continue reading Thank You Bruno
Retro Recap – WrestleMania 18
WrestleMania 18 was in the middle of a hangover of sorts for the WWE. The Invasion angle was over, having limped to the finished line after a rousing start, and now the roster was somewhat of a mess with people who'd been around for a while, holdovers from the WCW/ECW alliance, and a few additions … Continue reading Retro Recap – WrestleMania 18
