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…)

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a wrestling post. But this merits attention. When I started this blog a few years back, to amuse myself and hone my writing skills I did a fantasy booking scenario where Sting came to WWE.
I laid out on a week-to-week basis, everything that would’ve been done had Sting become a full-time member of WWE’s roster. Was it good? That’s for you to decide. I consider what I did my scratching of the itch to be a WWE Writer. I still want to write wrestling, (and may in another format ;)) but if it doesn’t happen, at least I know I put my ideas out there. Then something happened.
At Survivor Series on November 23rd, Sting made his first appearance in a WWE ring. And he did it to conclude a major story. I screamed. I couldn’t believe it. The moment I dreamed of was here and it didn’t disappoint. Sting laid out Triple H, allowing Dolph Zigger to pin Seth Rollins and free the WWE Universe from the oppression of the Authority. It was perfect. Now what? (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…)

In the Fall of 2009, Sting’s contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling expired. He eventually resigned with the company. But what if he signed with World Wrestling Entertainment instead?
Below, divided into seven phases (each representing a “book”) is the week by week story of the WWE in 2010 had Sting signed a one year deal. Each week a chapter told in script format.
So does the arrival of Sting affect the WWE? Is Sting a face or heel? What happens on January 4th? Who headlines Wrestlemania? Who are the Champions? How is the Nexus affected? Does he face the Undertaker? It’s all there, along with the stories of the entire WWE roster, Guest Hosts, and some surprising arrivals.
