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.

Reviving The NWO in 2012: Part Two

Reviving the NWO in 2012: Part Two: The Build to TLC

Fantasy Booking by Michael Brown

The following article has been paid for by the Nwe World Order.

Welcome back to “Calling Spots.” This is the second of our three part series where we’ll be looking at how the WWE could potentially bring back the New World Order in 2012. Part one saw the debut of Dean Ambrose, who entered the company by beating down Vince McMahon. As revenge, McMahon placed him in a handicap match at Survivor Series against Sheamus and a returning Wade Barrett. Barrett was attacked and never made the match, while Ambrose gets the win over Sheamus through interference from Dolph Ziggler. This article will look at the build to the PPV after Survivor Series: Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

Reviving The NWO in 2012 Part 1

Reviving The NWO in 2012 Part 1: Survivor Series and the build up to it

Fantasy Booking by Michael Brown

I wrote an article here last week where I discussed why I don’t really believe the New World Order should be revived in any way, shape or form. While I still subscribe to that viewpoint (although writing this has got me psyched up for a revival IF it was done right), I couldn’t get the question out of my head: If I was in WWE creative, and I had to revive the NWO, how would I do it? A lot of the following is has been pulled from nowhere, so it is going to have gaps, but I think that I’ve come up with a scenario that could potentially make an NWO revival work and succeed a decade after the group’s final appearance.
