OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…

Let’s get the main story out-of-the-way first. Okay; this past weekend at Paradise City Comic Con (in Miami, FL),  WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley saved two people cosplaying as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Casey Jones and April O’Neil from being attacked by someone cosplaying as The Walking Dead‘s Negan by performing his Mandible Claw submission hold on him during a cosplay wrestling event. Let that sink in for a bit, and I’ll be back with you after the break. Continue reading OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…

Macaulay Culkin Used ‘Home Alone’ Tactics & Traps To Help Santa Win A Wrestling Match

It’s stories like these that remind me how much I love professional wrestling…

One week ago, Los Angeles-based Bar Wrestling held its final show of the year. This promotion’s shows are so well-received and in such high-demand that many shows are standing -room only. They’re kinda of like CHIKARA and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), as Bar Wrestling puts on a fun show filled with some of Southern California’s best wrestling talent (here’s some of their DVDs/Blu-rays from Highspots). On their last show for 2017, Joey Ryan dressed up as sexy Santa Claus and teamed up with Candace LeRay (dressed as an elf) and Dick Justice (as a “Supercop Santa”) against “Professional” Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas and (Horn)Swoggle. My match was really funny and…wait…hold on…is…is that…THAT’S MACAULAY CULKIN SITTING IN THE FRONT ROW!

When a Public Library in Wisconsin hosts a Pro Wrestling Show…

Those of use who have attended professional wrestling events are accustomed to them being hosted in from football stadiums, basketball/hockey arenas and local gymnasiums.  I for one have attended wrestling shows in parking lots, carnivals/fairs, VFW halls, stage theaters, night clubsand bar/grill restaurants, and these locations are very creative from a logistical point-of-view. It really rings true that pro wrestling can really work anywhere, and it seems that the Milwaukee Public Library are believers (or BO-Lievers) in that philosophy, too.

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:

HAVE FUN EVERYONE!!!
