The fate of pro wrestling was decided in 2001 when WWE purchased WCW and shattered the dreams of every wrestling fan with the subsequent “Invasion.” I’m not going to bore you with the details but the biggest storyline in wrestling history became the biggest bomb in wrestling history…and it was designed to be. Vince McMahon’s ego wouldn’t allow WCW (and ECW) to portrayed as equals to the WWE, driving off millions of wrestling fans that have not returned. So how could it have turned out differently?

Kayfabe Commentaries turned to Vince Russo and Jim Cornette to rebook the Invasion. What would they have done? And whose version is better? Click below to find out. (more…)

Controversy has recently brewed up between former WWE Diva Dawn Marie’s charity Wrestler’s Rescue and the Ugandan Giant Kamala. Kamala has been suffering from diabetes. So much so his legs were amputated. To help with his medical care. Wrestler’s Rescue teamed up with the MWF to raise money and awareness of Kamala’s condition. Recently, Kamala posted a video saying he received no money from either organization. However, Dawn has recently released checks sent to Kamala that were returned to her. You can see her proof below. She will be posting a video explaining her side later today. More will be posted about this story as it develops. (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…)

When discussing “Holy Terror,” Frank Miller has been very upfront that it’s a propaganda piece. Its goal is to paint the enemy in the most awful light possible to rally support. So when I read people like Wired.com’s Spencer Ackerman saying it is “completely uninterested in any nuance or empathy toward 1.2 billion people he conflates with a few murderous conspiracy theorists” I ask, “Why should it?” It’s propaganda. Propaganda is supposed to be one-dimensional. Did you expect it to be anything else? So onto the next question, is it any good? (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…)
