WWE Reject Promo on TNA 101

Wanna know a way, how a former WWE star gets over the first time, in the impact zone? Just follow these simple Rules here:   [X] Break Kayfabe for a segment [X] Insult WWE in a diplomatic way [X} We're gonna take things to the top BROTHA [X] Use "Change the landscape and industry" somewhere [X] I was underutilized banter   The crowd will be immediatly behind you and you get an immediate title shot at Bound for Glory, eventhough nothing will change and the company will be out of business anyw

Why WWE Roadblock and NXT Takeover:Dallas, could make Wrestlemania 32 look pale in comparision

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26bw-hBiAAI   Well, we're totally in the Wrestlemania season everybody and it's this time again, just like the last Wrestlemania since 2013, that i really worry about the show as a whole. My worries for Wrestlemania 29 where pretty much confirmed, since most of the matches weren't good and the main event between John Cena and an out of shape Rock was just business as usual for the WWE.   Now i fear that my worries for Wrestlemania 32 are being again confirmed,

Why the territory system worked and why it could still work

Before the WWE and WCW became global powerhouses in Wrestling during the late 80s and early 90s, there was the NWA, or National Wrestling Alliance. NWA wasn't a Wrestling promotion, but more of a governing body that held historically, the most independent wrestling promotions in history. These promotions back then, where called "territories," because they all had control over a specific area in the United States. All those territories had there own champs and their own superstars and Titles. But

Why Dean Ambrose should become the WWE Champion at Wrestlemania

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1h5HgZ2k3c   I know that i might be a bit naive, when it comes to this. But when i learned something during my time as a wrestling fan for the past 16 years, it's that you should never say never.   Since Roman Reigns is now getting constantly booed again, after having a small 2 week pop from the fans, the WWE should realize that their golden boy is not really the guy who they should push, since he is another student of the "John Cena Super babyface" academy.

Vince Russo is totally right about Finn Balor

Small guys in combat sports will never, ever   draw in casual fans   and a mainstream audience   the way heavyweights will. And wrestling as we knew it is now over.           This is sarcasm, in case it isn't clear.   Have some Finn Balor awesomeness:

TNA HQ moves to a warehouse. This is the end.

https://twitter.com/WNSource/status/719684113725317120   Sorry for not making any Wrestling Blogs in awhile. I have a few other things in my head right now, besides Wrestling. But this Article is just Wonderful:   Source: http://www.wrestlingnewssource.com/news/42174/The-Real-Reason-TNA-Is-Moving-Their-Company-Headquarters/   At this point, TNA pretty much reached the point of no return. Dixie Carter has to sell the company to someone, or this will be the end. Though, i already heard tha

The WWE Network

(inb4 you're a WWE shill)   This is something i wanted to talk about for awhile, ever since it came to Germany, after 2 years of waiting. The WWE Network, that ever since it's release, has gathered some mixed reactions. Is it good? Does it suck? Do i care? Let's look at it.   First of all, the first thing you notice once you get on the first time, is being greeted by a livestream channel, kinda like a WWE channel if you want. They mostly show the newest content on the network, or the newest

The WWE Hall of Fame, will be serving some hard times. :P

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o81nbG2Xihk   The reason why i make a blog about this particular HOF entry, is because he wasn't leaked, compared to the Godfather and the Fabulous Freebirds. I am really one of those people who think that it should've happend 5 years ago already. But i am proud that the late great Big Bossman is finally in.   If you ever take a trip down to Cobb County, Georgia. You better read the signs Respect the law and order. You'll serve hard times. You'll be serving h

The best Wrestler in the World has arrived at NXT

I kinda knew it before it happend, but i marked out eitherway. They now aquired Shinsuke Nakamura, a 14 year veteran of New Japan Pro Wrestlng and a 3 time IWGP Heavyweight Champion. He is without a doubt, the hottest and best thing, that walks around in prowrestling right now.   I know, there are some doubters out there, that he probably won't be allowed to use his strong style in the US. But right now, i don't care. I think with Sami Zayn, Shinsuke has an opponent which can become match of t

Stan Hansen gets into the WWE Hall of Fame

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMpYJNCVcr0   This is probably the biggest surprise for me in this years hall of fame, but one that i am very happy with. Stan Hansen is probably one of the most underrated legends in the history of this sport.   He made up the legend, that his Lariat broke the neck of Bruno Sammartino, eventhough it was a botched body slam, that suspended him from the WWWF for 5 years.   He then went on to the AWA to become AWA champion and then got to Japan, where he proba

Serious Promos 101 with The Miz and Daniel Bryan

Wanna know what happens, when you don't give wrestlers a script? Magic happens:     This is one of the best promos i have seen on WWE Television, in awhile. The Miz and Daniel Bryan make one hell of a great promo, by bringing in a little pinch of reality into it, turning it into a very serious matter and making the fans actually care for the wrestlers that are in.   I will admit, i was never a big fan of miz, but here he really shows what it means, to be a phenomenal heel. Alot of peopl

Samoa Joe is the new, NXT Champion

https://twitter.com/WWE/status/723352240921047040   It is true ladies and gentleman. Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor, for the NXT Title...at a house Show in Mass. A World title, didn't changed hands at a house show, since Diesel won it against Bob Backlund in 1994 and that was in Madison Square Garden.   But Apparently, Balor suffered a knee injury and the ref made a cross sign during the match, saying that Balor has injured himself, so Joe had to end the match and take the belt from Balor.

Phil Collins vs. The Ultimate Warrior

Nothing serious today, but something funny.     I found the most bizarre Match in history. Former WWF champ, the Ultimate Warrior (RIP) vs former frontman of Genesis, Phil Collins.   #CollinsforWWEHOF2017

Paul Heyman predicted WCW's downfall during a Panel in 1995 (WARNING: FILTHY LANGUAGE)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLH0b5UO2lg   Granted, he didn't knew about the rise of the NWO, because that was a year before it. But if we look at it in retrospect, he was kinda right.   The topcard guys (Hogan, Hall, Nash, etc) are all guys, who have huge egos, especially Hogan, who was never willing to put the young guys over at that time. And instead of pulling on a string together, the huge egomaniacs rather wanted to do stuff on their own. And after awhile, it was tiring to watch mat

NXT Takeover:Dallas, predictions

We're just one day away, from NXT Takeover: Dallas and for some of us, this event might be even more hype then Wrestlemania, with a supercard of awesome matches, that makes the old vin mans main roster look like a joke.   I thought i take the time to predict the matches of the show.   Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin   Winner: Austin Aries   Aries is being booked as a huge signee, like Samoa Joe, rather than a glorified veteran enhancement talent, like Rhyno. Whether he has a shot at the ma

News Roundup: TNA getting bought by ROH? ROH getting shown on the WWE Network? Former TNA Star Eric Young on NXT

Many things have happend in the last few days in the world of wrestling, so i am going briefly through all of them.   Apparently, the owner of Ring of Honor and their parent company Sinclair Broadcast company, are interested in buying out the TNA name, who have been quite in a financial struggle for awhile now. What they will do with the name is not really clear, but it might look like it, that TNA gets merged into Ring Of Honor, with their whole video library and some of their talent wrestlin

My thoughts on the NJPW World streaming Service

It took quite awhile for me to finally get this. But finally, after a Paypal option was created, i bought myself a subscription for NJPW World, New Japan Pro Wrestlings answer to the WWE Network. How well does it hold up? First of all, i must say that it's cheaper then the WWE Network. NJPW World only costs 999 Yen a month, which is 7,40€ in europe so that is already a big plus. Their Menu needs a bit to get used to, but it's good overall. You might be a bit shocked at first at the jap

My short comment about TNAs Final Deletion Match

This was the first time in a long time, that i actually watched a TNA match. But after so many telling me, about how great this feud was and how this was supposed to be literally the greatest thing in wrestling, i had to give it a shot.   I will be very short here. I really didn't liked it, if i want to be honest. I will give TNA that, it was a very unique experiment and i have to tip my hat to them. But what most people don't realize is, that unique isn't automatically good. The finish was in

Mesmes 20 Wrestling Questions

Just came up with these barrages of basic wrestling questions, that pretty much everybody asks me at some point, so i put them here in one blog, without any big intro or something.   So, let's begin.   20. Who is the best announcer of all time?   Jim Ross is the undeniable number 1 announcer of wrestling. His knowledge is second to none and he has been in this business for 40 years. Joey Styles is great too though. 19. Best PPV of all time?   Wrestlemania X-7 blows everything out of the

Memorable words from Owen Hart. A few months before he died

"I would like to kind of just disappear, from wrestling fans and stuff. I don't want to forget the fans and what they've done. They've supported me and stuff, but at the same time, I'd like to just ... I don't want to be hanging on like one of these wrestlers who's sixty years old, saying, 'Hey, I'm a wrestler.' Let it go. Make your money out of it and get on. Going out and performing...it's an art. I'd like fans to remember me as a guy who would go out and entertain them, give them quality matc

Me on the concept of NXT

I have to say first, that i love the NXT shows and it's one of the best things, that WWE has going right now.   Let us look at the concept of NXT. It's basically there, to attract wrestling fans who don't usually like the WWE product to the network. The same with the cruiserweight classics. It's basically trying to be the ultimate 'indie' promotion, drawing off all the talent from the actual indie promotions. It's Vince's latest way to dominate wrestling. If the WWE can do indie wrestling, wit

Kenny Omega wins as the first Gaijin, the NJPW G1 Climax Tournament

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWusekKBbeM   This sunday, something truly historical happend. Not like something promotions like WWE or TNA use as a marketing gimmick, oh no. This truly is history.   Kenny Omega, the leader of the real bullet club, is the first Gaijin (a japanese term for foreigner) in the 26 year history of the G1 Climax tournament, to win the whole thing. He is one of the top guys right now, in the prowrestling business and at the first wednesday of the new year, he will

Jim Cornette shoots on WCW in 1989

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qnk4euU8lzk   I know, it's just a trailer. But it already mostly sums up Jims feelings of that time.   I just recently watched the whole shoot interview and Cornette, who i have a love/hate relationship with, since he likes to dump on the current wrestling product every chance he gets, i like to listen to his active time in the 80s and 90s. He is like your grandpa, who has his good and bad days. But if he's good, you are the best pals.   WCW was just founde
