Remember when Daniel Bryan joined the Wyatt Family? Yeah, Me Neither!

Daniel Bryan Joins the Wyatt Family

On the final Raw of 2013, Daniel Bryan did the unthinkable by joining the Wyatt Family. This came months after being ambushed and attached by the group and always falling short of victory.  In storyline, it made sense as Bray Wyatt is a manipulative mastermind and Bryan was at a mentally weak and existing time in his career. With Wyatt promising that they could take over the WWE together, it got plenty of people talking going into the new year…

UPROXX Reflects on WWF Forceable Entry, 12 Years Later…

WWF Forceable Entry review

Of course, one of the trademarks of professional wrestling since the 1980’s has been music, primarily entrance music for the wrestlers.  From the early days of the WWF Wrestling Album in 198_ to the digital singles released today, we wrestling fans have been able to enjoy pumping up and jamming out to these tunes. Plus, we’d often imagining that WE ourselves are the wrestlers, walking down the ramp and jumping into the squared-circle (I’m POSITIVE that I’m not alone in this…).  UPROXX took a trip down memory lane to the year of 2002, when the World Wrestling Federation released an compilation album that combined rock/nü metal/rapcore talent (some may use that term loosely), entitled ‘WWF Forceable Entry’, and reflected in an interesting post-mortem 12 years after the album’s release.

Here’s A Funny WWE Match Contract For Ya’!

One of the staples of modern professional wrestling is the contract signing for an upcoming pay-per-view match (which never, EVER go wrong, right?).  There’s usually a covered table (that someone may get put through), some chairs for the soon-to-be participants will be seated in (and possibly get hit over the head with), very intense and intimidating verbal squabbles (that may lead to an all-out brawl), and of course, the signing of the contract for the highly-anticipated match. After the break, there’s a photo taken of the contract for a match at this past Sunday’s WWE Payback pay-per-view between Evolution (Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton) and The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns). It’s hard to make out the text in the photo at the bottom of the contract for that was used on the May 26th edition of RAW, but it’s visible enough to read the interesting message.

The Obligatory Birthday/Pro Wrestling Post…

Hello ME in 2006...How You Doin'?
Hello ME in 2006…How You Doin’?

Well, since today is my 29th birthday…(CUE HORNS)…I wanted to share some of my favorite professional wrestling-related experiences.  For today, I’m going to select the time period of March 2006 (EIGHT YEARS AGO) when I was working at VOA Associates in Chicago, IL, and was the time period that I turned 21.  Aside for the “usual celebratory things” a new 21-year-old does (wink-wink, nudge-nudge, stumble….), I attended a slew of pro wrestling events during that time, ranging from meet and greets with Candice Michelle, Shawn Michaels, Lance Storm and Roderick Strong, to attending two Ring of Honor shows and the Monday Night RAW following WrestleMania XXII.
