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?
Battleground 2017 was one of the most critically panned pay per views in modern history. On paper it wasn't a bad show but as it unfolded with each match it just seemed like everything was taking the worst possible turn it could. And over it all loomed the shadow of the Punjabi Prison Match, and … Continue reading Retro Recap – Battleground 2017
Summerslam is normally the second biggest show of the year in WWE but in 2021 given the circumstances it may be the biggest one. A Full capacity crowd at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas makes a big difference, among other things, but there was also the expectation of some big returns as well, particularly with … Continue reading Summerslam 2021 Thoughts

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
So the big story at the end of this week is whether or not Rusev may be leaving the WWE.
