Well, all it took was for Jerry Lawler to get another Jerry (Lee Lewis) to give WWE the rights his biggest hit for the RAW-exclusive Bad Blood pay-per-view to be renamed “Great Balls of Fire.” Oh boy… However, I will say that the prospect and anticipation for a Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar defending against Samoa Joe — as well as Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in an Ambulance Match — has amped for the show. But just like WWE, they just have to quintuple-down on the pay-per-view absurd title of “Great Balls of Fire” by having a gaggle of WWE Superstars “sing” the lyrics to the Jerry Lee Lewis’ hit tune in the above promo video.

We’re practically halfway through October, which means Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes are selling like hotcakes (I swear, I NEVER say that), our North American cousins in Canada are celebrating their Thanksgiving while we Americans have to wait another month-and-a-half, and the Halloween season is in full swing. If you don’t have a costume for your wee wrestling-loving children yet, don’t worry — WWE has you covered. They’ve provided a bevy of costumes, each more uncomfortably terrifying than the last, to make sure that your little munchkins can dress up as their favorite Superstars. Or, well, a significantly more terrifying version. So, enjoy that upcoming options; or just run away screaming, because I wouldn’t blame you… Continue reading “WWE’s Brock Lesnar Halloween Costume is Scarier Than THE REAL Brock Lesnar…”
Back on July 19th, the WWE held its first Brand Draft since 2011, creating two different and exclusive talent rosters for Raw and SmackDown. However, back on July 7th, a Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton match was announced for this year’s WWE SummerSlam, and what makes this match very interesting is the fact that Lesnar and Orton haven’t worked a televised match together since 2002. Back in 2002, after the first WWE Brand Extension Draft in April, both superstars were on SmackDown for a brief period of time and first worked a match together on the main roster on September 5th.
Remember last week when #1 contender for the WWE World Championship Brock Lesnar beat up a car — that belonged to J&J Security — live on Monday Night Raw. Well, if you saw this AND you enjoy playing video games every now-and-then (sarcasm), then you know very well who else does that? That;s correct; Street Fighter characters. I would say “check out the answer after the break,” but I have a feeling you know where I’m going with this…

BEARD! GOATEE! BEARD! GOATEE! BEARD! GOATEE! BEARD! GOATEE! Good, now that’s out of my system…
…Anyway, now that Brock Lesnar has finally started showing up on RAW again to remind us all that he is, in fact, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ACTUALLY EXISTS, I want to take a deep look into the the champ’s past. Today, Lesnar is a beast of a man, or a beast of a mountain, or a beast of some unholy hybrid of a man-made-mountain, or something else that accurately describes how physically powerful, frightening and imposing he is, but back in early 2002 he was AT LEAST half-as scary as he is today.

Whether it’s as Paul Heyman or Paul E. Dangerously, as the boss of ECW, Brock Lesnar’s agent or the manager of any other wrestler, you’d have to admit that Paul Heyman is one of the most captivating wrestling characters of all time. Few people in the business are blessed with the ability to deliver a promo that simply captivates an audience, but Heyman is definitely one of them, because when he talks, we listen. Heyman has been in the business for over 25 years, and I’ve come across my three favorite iconic wrestling promos from the “Mr. Dangerously” himself, ranging from insulting the crowd, other wrestlers or his employer, Heyman’s verbal venom often knows no bounds.

Recently, Shawn Michaels was a guest on Jim Ross’ podcast, The Ross Report, and at around the forty-minute mark he revealed in the interview that the decision to end The Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak — which I may of may not have ranted and resolved already… — was made roughly four hours before last month’s WrestleMania 30 program went to air. Michaels stated that at the end of the day, the final and absolute decision came down to WWE owner and chairman, Vince McMahon. Ross himself stated that he “wouldn’t be surprised if the decision for The Streak to end did not happen at the eleventh hour. Or the weekend of,” with Michaels confirming that is was “four hours” before that show began.
Regarding the result of the match:

This month on The PractitioNERD’s “Rant N’ Resolve”, host Montez McCrary rants on his disappointment with Brock Lesnar ending the WrestleMania streak of The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX last week. However, his reasons for being disappointed are probably NOT what you expect them to be… Continue reading “Undertaker’s Loss at WrestleMania XXX – Rant N’ Resolve # 9”
Yesterday, a viral ad from the WWE website and YouTube page proclaimed that a “Revolution is coming.” There was no type of detail in the ad, as it composed mostly of stock riot and protest footage intercut with bombings, explosions and quick scene transitions (a’la any Michael Bay movie). Even though teaser videos indication some change or storyline are no stranger to the business of professional wrestling, what makes it interesting is that WWE had pulled the ad from its own site and YouTube page. Hmm…
