It’s very hard for friends and family to understand why I’m a wrestling fan. Making it harder is when you try to show them, WWE books something stupid and your they look at you and say, “you watch this?” (SummerSlam 2005 is a perfect example)

Then something reminds you of why you love wrestling. A match that inspires you to buy a ticket because you wanted to be there and witness history. Last year in Brooklyn, Sasha Banks and Bayley reminded me of why I fell in love with wrestling.  Want to know why and see EXCLUSIVE photos and video from the Nosebleed Section?  (more…)

So the WWE draft is this week. Like most of you I’m eager to see who ends up on what show. I am also scared. I’m scared because splitting the roster in the name of “unpredictability” could ruin two divisions just when they’ve started to rebuild: the Women’s division and the Tag Team division. My solution, give the women to RAW and the Tag Team’s to SMACKDOWN. Here’s why? (more…)

There was a lot to like about Wrestlemania 31. The opening ladder match for the Intercontinental title was great, Cena and Rusev did a good job with a grand entrance from Rusev, Paige, AJ, and the Bellas had a good match, Stephanie, Triple H, the Rock and Ronda Rousey was gold, and Seth Rollins cashing in to win the WWE Championship was the right call.  However, despite all these highs, there was a deep low. Sting lost and it was the wrong call. Here is why.  (more…)

WWE and TNA listen up. Since both organizations are trying to be drama rather than wrestling, I think it’s about time you learned something from drama. Something that will both create compelling television and give old-school wrestling fans what they want. And all you need to do is watch HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

So what can a show about a world with dragons and long winters teach the writers at WWE and TNA? Why how to create a villain of course. All you have to do is look to Joffrey Baratheon. (more…)

1997 was a compelling year for the WWE. On TV it was one of the most exciting times with the USA vs. Canada feud, the rise of Steve Austin, the birth of the Rock, the formation of Degeneration X, the coming of Kane, and Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart were on a collision course both inside and outside the ring which would culminate in one of the most controversial moments in wrestling history. Behind the scenes it was a nightmare. WWE was being slaughtered by WCW in the ratings and PPV buys thanks to the amazing (but beaten to death) NWO storyline. Despite these set backs everything was in place for the company to do the best business in its history. All they needed was a spark. In Kayfabe Commentaries “Timeline (the History of WWE) 1997 with Jim Cornette” the legendary manager/writer/booker takes us on a journey to the moment where the spark was found and ignited what would become known as “the Attitude Era.” (more…)
