  1. Here's my thoughts on the massive 16 match card of Wrestlemania 35. 1. Women's Battle Royal (Kickoff Show)- With no true title defense of the Smackdown Women's Championship this year, this will have a lot of women superstars from Raw, Smackdown, and NXT, and perhaps even some legends returning for a one off. Winner - Asuka 2. Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal (Kickoff Show)- This one will, like the Women's battle royal, feature a slew of talent from all three brands. The stupid storyarc with Braun Strowman, Colin Jost and Michael Che will finally end. Winner-Brawn Strowman 3. Buddy Murphy (champ) v. Tony Nese for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship (Kickoff show)- The cruiserweight division's championship is once again relegated to Wrestlemania Kickoff show status. However, I think this will be a sleeper for one of the best matches of the night. Murphy has been doing a fantastic job as the top guy of the division, and the battles that Murphy and Nese have had will make this match that much better. Winner- Buddy Murphy 4. The Revival (champs) v. Hawkins and Ryder for the Raw Tag Team Championship- The first match of the the main card is a match that was confirmed earlier today. THis will be a good match that will be dominated mostly by The Revival, but this would be a good place for Curt Hawkins' massive losing streak to finally come to an end. Winners and new Raw Tag Team Champions-Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder 5. Fatal 4 Way Tag Team match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship The Usos (champs) v. Ricochet & Aleister Black v. The Bar v. Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura- This will be a knock down drag out fight pitting soem very good teams against one another. Honestly, I wish this match were a Ladder match, but this could change again. I think we're gonna see a heel team get a run with the belts. Winner and new Smackdown Tag team Champs-The Bar 6. Kurt Angle v. Baron Corbin (Angle's retirement match)- Let's get one thing straight here... THERE IS NO WAY CORBIN IS FACING ANGLE IN HIS RETIREMENT MATCH. There is more to this story than meets the eye. I think that Corbin will be attack back stage Sunday night and a replacement will be named. John Cena and the Undertaker are logical choices for Angle to wrestle against. But, we all know that WWE doesn't use logic. Winner-Kurt Angle 7. The MIz v. Shane McMahon (Falls Count Anywhere)- The Miz has been on a tear as of late, single handidly taking down Sanity a couple of weeks ago. The numbers caught up to him this week on Smackdown however. Who knows where this match will end, but it's pretty much a forgone conclusion that Sanity will have some sort of impact on it. With that being said, I think the WWE will drag out this feud for as long as they can. Winner-Shane McMahon 8. Women's Tag Team Championship Sasha Banks & Bayley (champs) v. Beth Phoenix & Natalya v. Nia Jax & Tamina v. The IIconics- This will be the biggest challenge of the Boss n Hug connection's reign thus far. However, I think they will come out on top. Winner-Sasha & Bayley 9. United States Championship Samoa Joe (champion) v. Rey Mysterio- This match is still up in the air due to Mysterio injuring his ankle on the go-home Raw this past monday in his match vs Baron Corbin. If it does happen, we'll see what will be a great match between two former world champions. Winner- no idea due to Rey Mysterio's injury 10. Intercontinental Championship Bobby Lashley (champion) v. Finn Balor- The demon returns. This will be a hard hitting match between these two. Balor goes over because he rarely loses when in his demon body paint. If this does happen, I think that Lashley and Lio Rush will finally break up. Winner and new Intercontinental Champion- Finn Balor 11. Triple H v. Batista (No Holds Barred; Triple H's career on the line)- It seems like this could very well be the final match of each of these guy's careers. Batista is the only guy he was not able to beat back in the day, and I think that he will come out on top. Winner-Triple H 12. AJ Styles v Randy Orton- If done right, this could have huge implications to the WWE Championship picture moving forward. These two have not had a singles match as of yet, but with the bad blood starting to boil over here, this one has the makings of an instant classic. Winner-Randy Orton 13. Roman Reigns v Drew McIntyre- Another match that brings huge implications to the WWE Universal championship picture, this match pitting two big hosses of the WWE will be a slobber knocker, if not anything else. With Roman's recent return from his leukemia recovery, he will win this match and establish himself as the number one contender. Winner-Roman Reigns 14. WWE Championship Daniel Bryan (champion) v. Kofi Kingston- This match has all the earmarks of Daniel Bryan's title win back a few years ago. This will be a highly competitive match, pitting one of the better flyers of the era against the most techinally sound wrestler of the era. I think Kofi finally achieves his lifelong dream. Winner and new WWE Champion-Kofi Kingston 15. WWE Universal Championship Brock Lesnar (Champion) v. Seth Rollins- This will be a fight. However, this will also be the crowning moment of Seth Rollins returning to the summit, finally slaying the beast. Winner and new WWE Universal Champion-Seth Rollins 16. Winner take all Ronda Rousey (Raw Women's Champ) v. Charlotte (Smackdown Women's Champion) v. Becky Lynch- IN one of the most stupid moves in the history of the business, this match will unify the raw and smackdown women's championships. This will be a match full of strikes, suplexes, and submissions. This will be an all-out brawl. With the Women finally main eventing Wrestlemania, this match will not disappioint. Winner and new Raw and Smackdown Women's Champion-Becky Lynch The card is subject to change over the next couple days and could change yet again, who knows.
  2. With the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view this sunday, I was wondering who else here besides myself is looking forward to it? Going to be some exciting matches! Personally, I'm hoping that Asuka and Nia Jax both take the Women's Championships. And can't wait to see Kevin Owens trapped in a cage with Braun Strowman! That will be fun to watch! What do you think will happen? Who's your favorites to win the championship matches? Art by hells-edge And yes, I know it's all scripted. No more real than any other "reality show". Please no responses about 'how fake it is' and such. Let us enjoy our fiction!
  3. This thread is to discuss your favorite superstar/diva from any of the wrestling franchises. You can also talk about your favorite era,tag teams,moments,returns,heel/face turns,legends,match types,video games,championships,weapons, etc,etc! The Xtreme Rules: No perverted material. Foul language allowed. ( no F-Bombs or God****) No arguing who’s the best. (Save it for the ring) Hate is allowed (especially on Bo) We know wrestling is fake,so don’t try to troll people.(well it’s fake sometimes) talk about ANYTHING related to wrestling! Have fun! My favorite legend is practically all of them (not you Balls Mahoney) but my most favorite has to go towards Stone Cold,Hulk Hogan,and Most importantly Undertaker! And my favorite normal wrestlers are Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio, along with CM Punk. My favorite Divas have to be Nikki Cross,Paige,and Rhonda Rousey. My favorite era is the Attitude Era,Ruthless Aggression Era,and the New Era. (You know,GOOD wrestling,Thuganomics,Vince kissing Rikishis ass. Oh God that’s hilarious) and my favorite game is either,Here Comes the Pain,or Shut Your Mouth! Gimme a Hall yeah! I mainly follow WWE but if you could,point me to some of the other brands of wrestling. oh and the GOOD wwe games as well... speak your mind on Wrestling!

  6. I know i haven't talked about Wrestling for awhile, but this is something that is close to my heart. Yesterday, the greatest wrestling manager of all-time and one of the funniest and greatest commentators of all-time, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has passed away at the age of 73. The way that he died are still unknown, but i rather want to talk about how he lived. Bobby Heenan was one of the most despised heels, in the first golden age of Wrestling in the WWE/WWF between the mid 80s and early 90s. He sometimes considered himself as the manager of champions, managing people like Mr.Perfect, King Kong Bundy, Haku and the legendary Andre the Giant who he managed at the legendary match between andre and Hogan at Wrestlemania 3. And during his stint in the AWA, he managed former AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel. After taking a step back from managing, Heenan proved himself as not only a good, but also great commentator, together with his life long friend Gorilla Monsoon, who both for example commentated Ric Flairs Royal Rumble win in 1992, which is Heenans best commentary performance, fearing for Flairs win for a whole hours and almost having a heart attack. when WCW was trying to compete more and more with the WWE/WWF, they also brought Bobby Heenan on board, being the new full time commentator with Tony Schiavone and being joined mostly by either Larry Zbysko or "Iron" Mike Tenay. His last commentary was at Wrestlemania X-7 in 2001, where he returned to the WWE to call the gimmick battle royal with Mean Gene Okerlund, giving us a good sense of nostalgia and showing that Heenan still got it. The last few years of his life, he enjoyed his retirement, while also working with the WWE from time to time backstage. Here are some highlights from Bobby Heenans great career: Rest in Peace Bobby Heenan. I know that you're at a better place, being finally together with your friend Gorilla Monsoon.
  7. https://www.twitch.tv/hypnosparkle Everyone who isn't busy today, is very welcome to join me in my WWE 2k17 stream today. I will play some online matches for probably around 2 hours. I sadly don't have a microphone yet, but i can speak with you in the chat between matches. Hope you're all coming. EDIT: I might be able to use a mic after all, so come in if you want to hear me trashtalking during gameplay. EDIT 2: Stream is cancelled. I will try it again tomorrow
  8. 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, with all the best indie talent, and with their superior production values, how is any other promotion going to rise? People have to understand the WWE's business model in 2016 is to get anyone with any kind of interest in pro wrestling, WWE or otherwise, to subscribe to the network and pay them 9.99 a month. Raw ratings don't matter, as long as they stay healthy enough to keep the show on the air and draw in a reasonable amount of new consumers. It's basically like a loss leader for the WWE: protecting their prestige and maintaining mainstream presence. But the ratings don't need to be huge. Their profit is in merchandise (hence their obsession with merchandisable catchphrases and visual gimmicks) and the network. Yes, guys like Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode are huge with a certain portion of the pro wrestling audience so why put them on Raw or Smackdown and give them away for free when they can put them behind a pay wall? Are you a fan of NJPW? Well, guess what, you can't see Nakamura anymore unless you subscribe to the WWE network. Are you a fan of TNA? Guess what? We have Bobby Roode here. It makes total sense when you understand the WWE's business model. Do they 'need' Nakamura and Roode on the 'main roster'? No, they probably won't affect their audience numbers as they won't be well known to casual fans. Do they care if Nakamura's and roode's careers are 'wasted' playing to a small audience? Of course they don't. NXT is not a developmental department, it's a marketing strategy.
  9. The Wrestling world mourns, from the death of one of it's most iconic late 80s characters. Harry Fujiwara, who was most famously known as Mr.Fuji in the WWE in the late 80s and 90s, died at the age of 81. His most famous role, was being a manager, playing a mostly sneaky japanese stereotype, calling himself "the always devious." The most famous wrestlers he managed whered Don Muraco, the powers of Pain, The Orient Express and WWE Champion Yokozuna. He was also an accomplished wrestler in the 60s and 70s, winning numerous territory titles around the world, like the canadian heavyweight title in maple leaf wrestling and the WWC North American Heavyweight Championship. If there is a heaven, i can imagine that fuji threw salt at st.peter to enter. Rest in Peace Mr.Fuji. You'll be missed.
  10. 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 people know, that the retirement hit Daniel Bryan very very hard and Miz calling him out on it, makes him look like such an a-hole, that you can't help, but love to hate him and this is what makes a great heel. This what is missing alot, in mainstream wrestling, bad guys that you love to hate and i for one applaud the miz, for giving me back this feeling. Chapeau.
  11. Seriously, this is kinda dumb. But i could watch this over and over again and i would still laugh my butt off. Bobby Roode has the best entrance theme in WWE right now (together with Shinsuke Nakamura)
  12. 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 anyway sooner or later. P.S Fire Josh Mathews
  13. http://vocaroo.com/i/s0nVrAuI3CHK You can't say that i didn't try.
  14. 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:
  15. 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 wrestling at Ring of Honor in the future. ROH COO Joe Koff, has shown interest in doing a relationship with WWE, in showing their shows and some of their old shows on the WWE Network. During an interview on the Jim Ross Podcast, Koff said: " Look—I have always been very open to any conversation with any kind of promoter or any kind of idea. Would I like to have a relationship with WWE? Who wouldn’t? I mean, really? If they think that we’re strong enough to be considered to be part of their plan, I would certainly be open to it. I’m not sure how that would work and I’m not sure that that’s something they’re open to." It's not that unlikely in my opinion, considering WWE seems to be close with ROH, since they shown footage in the past. Yesterday, Eric Young debuted on WWEs developmental league NXT, during one of their tapings. It was long speculated where Young would go leaving TNA after a partnership that was for over a decade long. On his debut, he immediatly challenged the new NXT Champion Samoa Joe. So it looks like we get a match of 2 former TNA Veterans at some point. Have a nice day.
  16. It's pretty much a comin these days in the EWF (Equestrian Wrestling Federation,) you have alot of underrated talents in the roster that alot of people would like to see succeed, but they are constantly shunned away into the midcard and ponies like Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer, Trixie, etc. pretty much decide the world title for themselves every PPV. But it seems like a Southern Pony by the name of Applejack, who has been constantly kept down in the midcard now gets her chance this sunday, at the biggest show, Equestriamania. Applejack is somebody who everybody can relate to. She comes from a family of farmers, never got anything handed to her and had to work hard everyday. While the opponents in the Main Events, the champion Twilight Sparkle and this years winner of the Canterlot Rumble, Rainbow Dash, are already big stars. It was originally planned to do a match between Twilight and Rainbow, which many people just saw as a tool, for Rainbow to promote her Wonderbolts career, since she is just a part timer these days. The crowd pretty much shat all over the current Main Event plans and wanted to see Applejack. But now it seems like, that they actually get what they want. But to get into the Main Event, she has to fight Celestia in the opening bout of Equestriamania. If she wins, she gets in the Main Event. If she dosen't, Celestia buried another Talent. I can tell you already, this will be one hell of a show.
  17. 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 main roster or not, Aries will definitely be a big name in NXT’s title picture and also be used to put over rising talent. But he’ll have to establish himself to the NXT audience — even though many are smark fans — before losing to Corbin, although there is a very good chance the Lone Wolf pulls off a win and becomes the top heel challenger for the NXT Championship. NXT Tag Team Championship The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) © vs. American Alpha (Jason Jordan and Chad Gable) Winner: American Alpha American Alpha is at its peak popularity yet doesn’t show signs of slowing down. The Revival has had a lengthy title reign and has already established itself as one of the division’s top tag teams. NXT needs to strike while the iron is hot with A.A. and give Jordan and Gable their first championship victory in their biggest match to date. Apollo Crews vs. Elias Samson Winner: Apollo Crews Crews needs a win to re-establish himself as one of the brand’s top babyfaces. Samson has been dominant since becoming a regular on NXT television — aside from his upset by Gargano last week — but is unlikely to capture a victory in Dallas. Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura Zayn is already a full-time member of the main roster and a favorite to win the Intercontinental Championship. He has nothing left to prove in NXT as a former champion who provided several stellar matches throughout his tenure. Nakamura is — along with A.J. Styles — the biggest acquisition in WWE history based on his past success at New Japan Pro Wrestling. The King of Strong Style has already been hyped as a breakout star in what is expected to be a short run in NXT and needs to capture a win in his first match. NXT Women’s Championship Bayley © vs. Asuka Winner: Asuka Asuka is the most believable challenger to end Bayley’s title reign, which will reach 222 days on Friday. Bayley, like Zayn, has nothing left to prove and should make her debut on the main roster competing against the other Horsewomen. TakeOver: Dallas is the perfect event to solidify Asuka as the new face of the division and end Bayley’s NXT career with another stellar performance. NXT Championship Finn Balor © vs. Samoa Joe Winner: Finn Balor Balor showed signs of a heel edge in his match against indie favorite Rich Swann last week. Many have speculated that there could be a double-turn to end the NXT Championship match. The most likely scenario would involve former Bullet Club members “Machine Gun” Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows — expected to make their debuts soon — helping their former leader pick up the victory or attack Joe after a hard-fought match. Either way, Balor will likely continue to be NXT’s top star while Joe, 37, will make the jump to the main roster while he’s still in his prime. However this will turnout, it will be one hell of a show.
  18. 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, as not only do we have a lackluster card, with Roman Reigns, who is sitting at home and hasn't been to the last 2 raw shows and Triple H, in the main event. We also have Shane Mcmahon, who i love, but is not a Wrestler and the Undertaker, who i also love, but has a non believable heel role. Lesnar and Ambrose sounds nice, but that's pretty much it, for your main event type matches. When we look at WWE Roadblock, we got Dean Ambrose facing Hunter for the title, which is a feud which was very well executed and which got the crowd excited. You get Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt, which should've been at Wrestlemania and we got an NXT Tag Title match, between the Revival vs. Colin Cassady and Enzo Amore. Don't get me started on NXT Takeover: Dallas, which will be shown on Friday, 2 days before Wrestlemania. The freaking card is packed with wonderful matches. Austin Aries has his debut against Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews faces Elion Samson, the best wrestler in the world right now, Shinsuke Nakamura has his debut against Sami Zayn (El Generico) and Samoa Joe, has the chance to one more time win the big gold, against the NXT Champ Finn Balor (Prince Devitt) I haven't been this worried about the last 3 Wrestlemanias and with 100000 people trying to make a WWE record, making it the biggest Wrestlemania of all time, it makes me cry to think, that this Wrestlemania will go down in history. It's a sad state of affairs right now.
  19. 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.
  20. 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, that i actually miss John Cena. John Cena atleast showed some emotions and the fans where atleast cheering him, or booing him. Roman dosen't any emotion and the fans either boo him, or are indifferent about him, which is even worse then booing, because it shows the audience dosen't care. I wait and see till Wrestlemania and if that sucks and is being done in the most obvious way again, i seriously have to ask myself if i want to go continue supporting this company, because this can't go on.
  21. 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. I swear, if the main event is Hunter vs. Reigns, the fans will turn on the match from the very beginning. Ambrose on the other hand, is the actual blue collar hero, that the audience actually wants, because he is the underdog. Think about it. Ever since the Shield split up almost 2 years ago, the Authority always screwed over Dean Ambrose to become THE guy and the best example, was at the Rumble last month, because if it hasn't been for Triple H, Ambrose might have been the WWE Champion. The whole freaking story writes itself. He is the Mick Foley of this generation. He just won't stay down and the more he gets, the more he wants. And i actually can imagine Hunter pulling off a great match with him, just like he did with Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 30. Dean also deserves it for his contribution to the business. I was never the biggest fan of Combat Zone Wrestling, but i saw Jon Moxley (which was Deans indie name) and he was probably one of the most charismatic guys in the american indie scene. He came from nothing, had a shit family and the only thing that kept him alive was the joy that wrestling brought him. Where does Roman come from? He comes from a big wrestling family, came into the WWE because of his name and got pampered by the guys there, because anoi name. YOU CAN'T BUILD HIM AS AN UNDERDOG. So i hope Ambrose wins at Fastlane. Believe me, the Raw Ratings will go up again, because Ambrose is a believable face that we can all cheer for and somebody that has mic skills. Reigns will just stand in the rings for 20 minutes and mumble into his microphone and will then say "BELIEVE THAT." If that is how you will build up Wrestlemania, don't cry if people will tear the AT&T Stadium down at the end. I end this Blog with funny Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvKl1vQn2M0
  22. 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 that exist outside of the squared circle too. There are certain signs for me 1. promotions like TNA and ROH can't exists if the wrestlers that are working there, are the "Talent that Vince Mcmahon will eventually buy" and that can't be a way to show yourself as a promotion and i can imagine that these promotions will soon get merged into NXT. Guys like Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Austin Aries and soon the Bullet Club are already in the WWE. Who knows, maybe we will see classic TNA and ROH shows on the WWE Network soon. 2. This is a more obvious one, the money, which the WWE has alot of. We all know that the economy is kind of bad right now, which is something that smaller wrestling organizations don't benefit from. The WWE is planning to host the biggest wrestlemania of all time attendance wise in the AT&T Stadium, planning over 100000 people in it. I think if the WWE would even lose half of their money right now, they would still be the richest Wrestling organization. 3. Besides having a presence in the wrestling industry, the WWE is now showing more then ever, that they are also showing that they are an entertainment brand. Total Divas for example (i hate the show, but that is not the point) shows the entire womens division on camera, as well as other wwe faces like John Cena and Daniel Bryan. The WWE Films department yearly films movies with guys like Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Kane, etc. and then you have other WWE Network shows like Breaking Ground, Culture Shock, Swerved, etc. other companies don't have the money, or an on staff marketing department for this kind of stuff. 4.NXT right now, is the best wrestling tv show in north america (if i would say world, it would be NJPW.) That is quite saying something, considering it's the C-Show of the company. NXT has wrestlers that are fan favorite by the underground and internet wrestling fans, like Samoa Joe, Finn Balor (Prince Devitt) and Hideo Itami (KENTA.) If the Wrestling Business goes where it goes and if NXT keeps that momentum, i think that NXT will be the wrestling programm for the underground guys, who can't stand the mainstream of Raw and Smackdown. 5. The WWE has invested more money then ever, into it's performance center, preparing themselves for the future. It's already showing it's fruition, considering the womens wrestling is getting better then ever, because the WWE is putting alot of money into them, but the males will follow soon. The WWE is already hiring guys who are absolutely green to the wrestling business and who are interested to wrestle in the "big leagues" as soon as possible. Chad Gable, who trained in the performance center and has no indie experience, is one of the most gifted and hottest rookies in wrestling right now and was named rookie of the year by the wrestling observer, the first WWE Wrestler in history who got that award since Bam Bam Bigelow in 86. I promise you, by 2020, the performance center will show it's real fruition and then the WWE might not be interested anymore, in getting other wrestlers from other promotions anymore. Now do i like these changes? Of course not. I like to watch some alternative programms like Lucha Underground and especially NJPW. But if we look at it from a realistic business standpoint, i really have to wonder how long promotions like ROH, TNA and Lucha Underground will be around? Maybe it will not happen so soon. But one day, i believe the WWE will own everything. *Getting prepared being called a WWE Mark/Shill*
  23. "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 matches. Not just the same old garbage every week...” Owen was somebody who i always admired as a Wrestler and a person in general. I feel like he was one of the most underrated Wrestlers in of all time, getting overshadowed by his brother Bret Hart and he was also the first guy in the locker room who would talk to you, if you felt down, or have any sort of problems. His Match against his brother Bret Hart at Wrestlemania, is still one of my favorite Wrestlemania matches and just showed what a great wrestler he was. RIP Owen. You will be missed.
  24. 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
  25. (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 episodes of Main Event, Superstars and most importantly, NXT. It's a nice little feature to watch things life like NXT, but the real heart and soul of the Network, lies in its video on demand service. First of all there is the PPV folder, where you got all the WWE PPVs available, from the current Royal Rumble, all the way to the first Wrestlemania. Even very unknown once like This tuesday in Texas or Capital Carnage (which you only get in Europe) and even controversial once like Over the Edge 99. Not just that, you also get all the old WCW and ECW PPVs. So if you want, you can relive the excitement of WCW Starcade 97 one more time, or the Extreme Awesomeness of ECW Heatwave 98. If you go to the Shows folder, there is a in ring section. In it you'll find Raw and Smackdown replays. You find all the current shows and even the older shows. You can even watch the first Raw from 1993. So if you want, you can go through the history of Raw and Smackdown, even if it's not complete yet. You also find NXT, Superstars and main event shows there. Then we got the original folder. It's filled to the brim with original shows, documentaries and other stuff. Some of the content is certainly hit and miss. I for one can't stand Total Divas, because it reminds me too much of one of those Reality TV shows i saw back on MTV. I rather look up the documentaries, like "Breaking the code: Chris Jericho" or "CM Punk: Best in the World" Originals are hit or miss, but there is certainly something in there you enjoy. Last but not least, there is the Vault Folder. You find various shows, from various promotions in there, especially old shows from the territory era, like WCCW, JCP and Mid-South Wrestling. But you can also find the old WCW Monday Nitro shows on there. 99 and 2000 are still missing, but the best time is already covered there. You can also find the old WWF Saturday nights main event shows (which i watch right now) and even the old WWF MSG and Boston Garden shows from the 70s and 80s. For Wrestling like me, it's a dream come true. The question is, is it worth 9.99? Well, it depends what kinda guy you are and what you want from the Network. For me, absolutely. For the last 3 weeks, i had a blast watching all the old stuff from my childhood and also watch things i haven't seen yet. But also being to watch them in the best quality is just wonderful. I admit, that the current product has indeed it's problems, but i can't just say no, to this great offer. What do you think? Did you get the Network? Are you not interested?
