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

How long will TNA last?

Over 10 years ago, TNA held the unbreakable PPV in 2005. The main event was a triple threat match between Samoa Joe, a former ROH champion and a current NXT star; Christopher Daniels, a multi-time tag team champion and one of the most entertaining wrestlers ever; and AJ Styles, the longtime TNA loyalist who has absolutely exploded in New Japan Pro Wrestling over the last few years, winning the IWGP Championship (the New Japan version of the World title) two times, a rare feat for a non-Japanese

Former WWE Head Writer, Alex Greenfield, talks about his experiences with Kevin Dunn

I know, for some it's probably old news. But i love this little blog so much, because it just reflects my personal distane for Kevin Dunn as a producer and as a human being and why he is far worse for the WWE, then Vince Mcmahon. So yeah, their you have it. It's pretty much one of the reasons, why i still support the WWE, just in the hopes that it gets better, once Kevin Dunn leaves. Hunter and NXT say hi.  Also, Cheeseburger is the greatest.

3 Chair shots...

I think the Status Quo last night at Fastlane, was upheld in an even worser way, then everybody could've expected. The Main Event was just bad and it was done in the most horrendous way that i could imagine.   Reigns has shown that the only thing that he actually sells, is his merchandise stuff, when he pinned Dean Ambrose for the 3 count, after getting hit BY 3 CHAIR SHOTS just 10 seconds earlier. It's so blantantly obvious, that the WWE wants to shove him down our throat and it's so bad, tha

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.

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

5 Great and 5 Awful PPVS you can find on the WWE Network

Yes, this is another product placement. Go ahead and sue me.   I haven't posted anything this week and i really lack any real originality to write something really great. So i just thought "hey, i had the network for over a month now and i already looked at some really classic PPVs." So yeah, why not talk about some great and awful PPVs i saw on the Network?   The WWE Network has all the PPVs from WWE, WCW and ECW and it really feels like an archive of everything that is good about Wrestlin

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

Could the WWE soon be the only wrestling organization, that is globally recognized?

It might seem like Wrestling right now, is having a huge boom with promotions like ROH, TNA, Lucha Underground and NJPW just recently coming down with Wrestle Kingdom X. But i have a feeling, that this seems like to be the calm before the storm, for the WWE to make another big revolutionary change in the Wrestling world.   Triple H and Stephanie Mcmahon will soon be owner of a global entertainment brand with full digital, mobile and terrestrial broadcast, as well as inroads into properties tha

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

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

AJ Styles: Future WWE Champion or destined to be a phenomenal jobber?

2 nights ago marked a historical debut, as "the phenomenal" AJ Styles, a man who was once called "mr.TNA" made his WWE Debut, as the number 3 of the Royal Rumble Match. He came out to one of the biggest wrestling pops in recent memory and he survived the rumble for almost a half hour, until he was eliminated by Kevin Owens.   The IWC is going rampant ever since and make all sort of claims, saying that he should be WWE Champion immediatly and what not. But after i calmed down a bit from all marki
