The Ultimate Warrior is one of the most recognized, energetic, and interesting personalities in the history of professional wrestling. With his shocking passing a mere days after being inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame before WrestleMania 30 in 2014 (and rebuilding his bridge with WWE), his legendary career took to new heights. While he has been part of the best (winning the WWE Championship from Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 6) and worst moments of wrestling history, I wanted to take the time to focus on the two moments in WWE where he was convincingly shown as an underdog (which means the angle with Papa Shango will NOT be discussed; ugh)… Continue reading “Remembering the Ultimate Warrior Getting PWN’D by Undertaker and Jake “The Snake” Roberts…”

You know what’s awesome? Professional Wrestling! You what also pretty darn awesome? Walt Disney animated movies (The Lion King FOR THE WIN)! But do you truly know what’s really, super-freaking awesome. A mash-up of professional wrestling AND Walt Disney characters; namely the Disney princesses. That would a little extra interest in women’s wrestling outside of attending a Hoodslam event.

Dear Lord, I LOVE the internet, but mainly reddit. Why; because of “stories” — more-so “time-wasters” — like this that can only come from the wild, wild, world wide web, a.k.a. The Internet. This video contains approximately four minutes of professional wrestlers from the 1980s and early 90s breathing. Yup. That’s all it is; wrestlers breathing. When you think about it, we ALWAYS hear them scream, … Continue reading Here’s Four Minutes of Pro Wrestlers Breathing…..Because REASONS!!!!!
We wrestling fans get excited when our favorite wrestlers return from a hiatus. When wrestlers like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Bret “Hitman” Hart, and even more recent stars like John Cena (like at the 2008 Royal Rumble, after surgery) return at WWE live events, we –the fans – hang on each and every word they say and anything and everything they do. However, not every return to the McMahon Family Business has been successful. That can range from random incidents committed by said returning superstars, the creative team not knowing what to do with the talent, or maybe that wrestler isn’t just the commodity (in-ring & entertaining-wise) as they used to be.

On July 3rd (over a month ago), the 1989 cult classic film No Holds Barred was released for the first time ever on DVD. The film features Hulk Hogan — in his first starring role — as Rip, the larger-than-life pro wrestling champion who’s been defeating some of the biggest bad guys ever to enter the squared circle. When Rip’s success and popularity catches the attention of a shady TV executive Tom Brell (Kurt Fuller, Wayne’s World), he finds himself stuck in the middle of a plan to boost the network’s ratings — which were sinking — by scheduling him in a match against a vicious monster-of-a-wrestler named Zeus (Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Friday). I must admit, this film is corny at times and over-the-top, but it’s still a very enjoyable and entertaining experience. The film also stars Joan Severence (See No Evil, Hear No Evil), along with Mark Pellegrino (TV’s Lost & Supernatural), and the late-Robert “The Jeep” Swenson.
