After the first instalment of looking at a forgotten WCW classic, let’s have another blast from the past, this time in the form of a match between two talented and rising wrestlers on the way up– one in his first ever main event match; the other more or less at the beginning of his main event run – that rose above chaotic circumstances and mayhem only moments earlier in the night to work its way up to greatness without ever quite getting due accolades.

News on Mark Henry Future in WWE

We’ve gotten a few emails asking what the deal is with Mark Henry after his loss to Neville on Raw this week. The idea for him is to have him put over younger guys. Henry has already indicated that he will not be signing a new deal with the company when his contract expires. I believe his deal expires in August or September of 2016. WrestleMania could be his last match. It would make sense since the show will be in his home state. Continue reading

Flat Ending Typifies Predictable Survivor Series

Thankfully, the ISIS threat did not go ahead and everyone, the fans and the wrestlers, came out all intact. That may well have been the highest point of the night as this edition of Survivor Series was undoubtedly the most predictable pay-per-view ever and one of the most unmemorable Survivor Series events altogether. The predictability was well and truly reflected in the results: Continue reading

Nick Bockwinkel – An Underrated But Influential Legend

November 14 would sadly signal the loss of another legend in the world of professional wrestling, this time the four time American Wrestling Association (AWA) World Heavyweight Champion, Nick Bokwinkel. For someone who achieved so many accolades and influenced many superstars over the years, it is a shame that his name is not heard of more frequently amongst the many legends who came both before and after him. But rather than mourn his passing, it is only fitting he gets the recognition he more than deserves for a much celebrated career. Continue reading

It has been decided that instead of focusing solely on the current and past happenings in WWE, which all of the previous articles – save for Jeff Jarrett – have been about, a different route is the order of today. Let’s go all the way back to 1999 and take a nostalgic look back at a match from WCW, an out-an-out forgotten classic featuring two of the all-time greats from the now defunct promotion.

Switching Roman Reigns Over to The Dark Side

There has been no character more divisive to the WWE audience, or any wrestling audience for that matter, in 2015 than Roman Reigns. The dissenters were already in place, albeit quietly, as the tide of opinion began to go against him for some time. One could notice the first noticeable signs of fan unrest occurring in the months following the break-up of The Shield, especially from late 2014 to early 2015, with the fans just waiting for their voices to erupt in full force against the notion that Reigns was in line for a monster push. It did not take long for that predicament to arise and when it did, it was nasty and brutal in the extreme. Continue reading

SETH ROLLINS – The Worst Booked WWE World Heavyweight Champion Ever?

It all looked so rosy for Seth Rollins towards the end of March at WresteMania 31. History was made by having Rollins become the first Money in the Bank winner to make a cash in attempt at WrestleMania, while the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns was still in progress Continue reading

hell in a cell 2015


The smoke has now cleared from the latest edition of Hell In A Cell and it was at the very most a middle of the road affair, a B-level pay-per-view more akin to a decent episode of Raw with some solid action along the way. Rather than go into all of the matches on the card, let’s take a look at the fallout from the three things that left the most lasting impressions on the night. Continue reading
