Now as I write for a wrestling magazine (the UK’s largest independently published magazine go be exact) you may think I am up-to-date with all things wrestling but sadly this isn’t the case. You see there simply aren’t enough hours in the day for me to watch everything I would like to and because of this some things don’t make the cut. Things have to be prioritised and given the amount of WWE content produced on a weekly basis and the amount of weeks we seemed to constantly be behind, the decision was made to write off WWE’s five hours of Raw and Smackdown (even if we’d usually get through them in less than two). Unfortunately for me, like many, neither Raw or Smackdown are currently must see TV so the decision was made to remove them from our schedule and unclutter our planner. Continue reading
Triple H has scoured the world and brought the world’s best indie talent to the WWE and has made NXT the best thing on the WWE network. It’s quarterly takeover specials are some of the best wrestling events in the world and include more match of the year candidates than any other show with the possible exception of WrestleMania (and that’s debatable).
WWEDVD are delighted to announce that you can now pre-order THE BEST OF IN YOUR HOUSE on DVD and Blu-ray (Release date 27th May 2013).
In the mid 90’s, no other pay-per-view series produced more epic matches, historic moments or championship showdowns than WWE In Your House. Debuting in 1995, In Your House PPV’s were the place where the top WWE Superstars settles their scores in the months between the “Big 4” events. In 28 events over 5 years, In Your House earned a permanent place in WWE history through the iconic Superstars it hosted and the litany of innovations that stemmed from it.
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: 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.
Suicide is Painless – By James Simpson
Kerry Von Erich shot himself. Mike Awesome hung himself. Chris Kanyon took an overdose of pills. These three wrestlers are part of a handful of wrestlers who have died at their own hand out of the dozens of pro wrestlers who have passed on in the past two decades. Suicide in wrestling seems ‘rare’ in comparison to the stats about wrestlers dying due to accidental drug overdoses and heart attacks due to steroid abuse. For me it’s upsetting to think about how Awesome and Kanyon ended their lives (I was too young to comprehend Kerry’s suicide and I’ll explain more on that, later) and how they must have felt: these were men I loved watching and knew they had suffered setbacks in their careers but was it those setbacks that led to them committing suicide? The following is a look at the deaths of these wrestlers, plus others who suffered the same fate that decided their lives were not worth living.
