Vince and WWE Buying TNA

By Michael Brown

An oft asked question amongst wrestling fans is whether Vince McMahon will buy Dixie Carter’s Tennessee based TNA, Total Nonstop Action, promotion. Established in 2002 by Jeff and Jerry Jarrett, the promotion is the biggest and only real major alternative to the WWE. Sections of the wrestling fanbase have been clamouring for Vince to buy the promotion and incorporate it into the WWE behemoth. For the life of me I can’t understand why people would want that. Over the next thousand words or so, I’m going to attempt to explain to anyone in favour why it would be a horrendously bad idea.

wrestling in london

By Chris Pilkington

Wrestling in London – When talking with some friends recently it was suggested that the British style of wrestling, as it were, was dead. And whilst I agree that the traditional style has changed drastically, I see it as more of an evolution than a termination. Whilst British wrestling used to have definite distinctions that made it separate from other nations, modern British wrestling is a lot more inclusive, taking ideas and motifs from a wide range of other influences and blending them together into something unique. This ideology is a direct result of the melting pot of nations that these fair isles have become. A multicultural society leads to a multicultural entertainment.
