Mr. Perfect vs. Ric Flair: Loser Leaves WWE (1993)

This is the definition of a classic match with a classic build; both leading up to the match and the match itself. Not a lot of people talk about “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and Ric Flair’s “Loser Leaves WWE” match from early-1993. Not only was it one of the best (FREE) RAW matches of all time, it was one of the WWE’s best matches PERIOD, and should have put Hennig over as one of the top babyfaces in the company. Unfortunately, the rivalry came up on the short end of feuds against “The All-American/Lex Express” Lex Luger and “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels throughout the rest of 1993, and essentially letting this memorable RAW moment be cast aside.

WWE Should Bring Back These Three Championship Titles…

HINT: This is ONE of them….

Ever since WWE extended Monday Night RAW from a two-hour show to three hours, they’ve had some difficulty providing entertaining programming to fill the entirety of the show — I’d suggest more matches, less segments/interviews.  Adrian Fylonenko of The Bleacher Report suggest that the WWE bring back the Cruiserweight (or Light Heavyweight, if you prefer), European, and Hardcore championship titles to help the WWE keep up a solid, quality program for all three hours of RAW, as the reintroduction of these belts could and would create more dynamic storylines and feuds on RAW and –should it go the three-hour route as well — SmackDown. Essentially: WRESTLING > VIDEO FLASHBACKS.   Continue reading “WWE Should Bring Back These Three Championship Titles…”

WWE’s website has a new article up with several Superstars looking back at CM Punk’s famous “pipebomb” promo from the June 27th, 2011 RAW Supershow. When CM Punk grabbed the microphone at the end of the main event on RAW, the mouthpiece turned into his personal weapon to unleash one of the most powerful outbursts the WWE Universe has ever witnessed.  CM Punk delivers a star-making soliloquy taking aim at WWE brass and voicing his frustrations with the sports-entertainment landscape.  Here are some comments after the break.   Continue reading “WWE Superstars Look Back at CM Punk’s Infamous “Pipe Bomb” Promo from June 27th, 2011″

A Revolution is Coming to WWE? Let Me Get My Coat…

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…

WWE vs. TNA vs. ROH. Who Wins? Wrestling Fans Win!!

Later this month, Ring of Honor Wrestling (ROH) will return to television from HDNet, to the more-available Sinclair Broadcast Group networks (includes over-the-air stations Fox, ABC, The CW, and MyNetworkTV).  With ROH’s return to television, the professional wrestling scene in the United States will become more interesting, especially since World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) are already in the picture.  Why is that, you ask. One word: COMPETITION.   Continue reading “WWE vs. TNA vs. ROH. Who Wins? Wrestling Fans Win!!”
