A month ago I posted an article about how Goldberg coming back to WWE was going to be a disappointment. I was wrong. Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series and did it in 90 seconds.

What appeared to be a story designed to give Brock Lesnar back his biggest loss (ala Hogan/Warrior II) became the most talked about 90 seconds of wrestling in 2016. The question on everyone’s mind is “where do they go from here?” The answer: several places. (more…)

Forbes.com reports that Bill Goldberg will be returning to WWE.

This is exciting news for fans who got into wrestling during THE MONDAY NIGHT WARS. WCW’s unstoppable for is returning and, from all video game trailers, is on a collision course with Brock Lesnar. Many of you are excited and you should be. I’m not because I saw this scenario two years ago and all signs point to history repeating itself

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…)

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?
