Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair [WWE Women’s Championship], WWE SummerSlam 2016

With all of the hilarious, MRA-leaning, man-babies crying over the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the soon-to-be 13th Doctor on the BBC’s Doctor Who, I asked myself “self, what would be a great way to use this to write a wrestling story.” The answer was simple: I’ll write about one of the best women’s wrestling matches in the last year! With SummerSlam taking place next month, I want to focus on one of the best matches from last year’s show: Sasha Banks defending the WWE Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair.

Colts Fan Forum – Indianapolis Colts

Pat McAfee, who recently retired from the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts at the age of 30 as their punter, had become a favorite of many sports fans for his on-field antics — like his awesomely long celebration after a great punt against the Jets where he went all Razor Ramon on ’em — and amazing social media presence — particularly after the firing of the polarizing former Colts general manager. For the next phase of his life, he’s developed a blossoming stand-up career, and he even built himself a wrestling ring, and has recently taken some advisory meetings with Rip Rogers, a veteran wrestler and head trainer of former WWE and TNA development promotion, Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Who Wants to See A Pro Wrestler Dressed as Pikachu do a Perfect Moonsault? (It Should be EVERYONE…)

Performing acrobatic moves in the course of a professional wrestling match is risky and — in some cases — dangerous, but to some wrestlers it’s a second-nature thing. Now, think about performing a move like the moonsault, which involves flipping backwards from the top rope onto your grounded opponent while landing chest first. Now, think about doing a moonsault while dressed in a full mascot costume; those things make everyday tasks like walking and running difficult, and you’ll do/see these tasks in EVERY wrestling match.  Well, nobody told that to this guy dressed as Pikachu… Continue reading Who Wants to See A Pro Wrestler Dressed as Pikachu do a Perfect Moonsault?

Figure Out Your In-Ring Name with this Wrestling Name Generator!

Wrestling name generator

To celebrate the release of Rowdy, the new biography of the late WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper by his children Ariel and Colt Toombs, Penguin Random House Canada put together a pretty awesome wrestling name generator.  All you have to do is enter your real name and find out what your in-ring name would be if you were a professional fisticuffer/grappler-performer-person.  This is because wrestling names are important and need to be memorable, whether you’re “The Great One,” “The Beast Incarnate,” “The Cleaner,” or even “The (former) Doctor of Thuganomics.” Here’s mine:

Brock Lesnar & Randy Orton Wrestled Each Other Only ONCE BEFORE in 2002

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.
