Well, Maybe Bam Bam Bigelow Will Get Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Next Year…

Le sigh. Now, I know that EVERY SINGLE YEAR there are going to be gripes and complaints about who “needs to be”, “should be” and “deserves to be” in the WWE Hall of Fame. Remember the multiple online arguments about Randy Savage getting inducted? Or even Bruno Sammartino? Or J-E-Double F, J-A-Double R-E-Double T?!? Now, all three of those guys made it to the Hall of Fame, but one omission that grinds my gears (especially due to the constant rumors and false-positive leaks/reports) is the lack of the late-Bam Bam Bigelow’s absence from the WWE Hall of Fame.

Remembering Eddie Guerrero Outsmarting Kurt Angle at WrestleMania XX to Retain the WWE Championship…

While Eddie Guerrero never main-evented a WrestleMania in his storied career, it is still difficult to argue that his match with Kurt Angle at WrestleMania XX definitely FELT like a main event match for all intents and purposes. Despite being the third-to-the-last match at the show, Guerrero and Angle put on quite the performance with all of the drama and athleticism fitting of ANY WrestleMania’s main event match. To this day, it stands as my SECOND favorite WrestleMania match of all time (with Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels at the following year’s WrestleMania at number one on my list).

Learning is a wonderful thing that I refuse to take for granted. Practically everyday we have a chance to learn some new fact, story, skill, and various other things everyday. This past week, I learned of the certain rules that WWE, WrestleCade, ROH and several promotions headed to New Orleans for the week of WrestleMania 34 have to abide by. This information is all thanks to an interview from Post Wrestling’s John Pollock with Russell Naquin of the Louisiana Boxing and Wrestling Commission.

Bray Wyatt got his Customer Service On by Helping A Stranger In Walmart Find His Action Figure…

Since his days in NXT, there’s never been a moment where I’ve (or in fact, MANY of us) questioned the performance, entertainment and wrestling abilities of Bray Wyatt, but this story also makes him out to be a pretty decent guy.  Courtesy of WWE artist Rob Schamberger, we finally have a story to prove that, and it involves an action figure, an autograph, a Walmart, his step-grandmother-in-law (I’ll get to that in a bit), and the Eater of Worlds himself.

Who do YOU have winning the First Women’s Royal Rumble?

I know, I know; there was an architecture story this past Monday, meaning there’s a Video Game story later in the week. So, why is there a Pro Wrestling story in the middle, you ask? Well, the usual Pro Wrestling story next week will still happen, but that’s AFTER this year’s Royal Rumble, which I want to talk about BEFORE the event. According to SportsBettingDime, the current favorite to win Men’s Royal Rumble is Shinsuke Nakamura (+250), and I want this too, especially after their classic Wrestle Kingdom match a few years ago and the tease during last year’s Smackdown Money in the Bank Match. But every year there’s a pool asking who’s winning the Men’s Rumble match, so the most intriguing question this year is who’s going to win the FIRST, WOMEN’S Royal Rumble match?

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…”

WWE Adds More Awesome to upcoming ‘WWE Starrcade’ Live Event

Except that as-of posting this, the event will not be airing on the WWE Network. Le sigh…

Anyway, this coming Saturday (November 25th), WWE will present ‘Starrcade,’ live from Greensboro, NC, deep in the heart of NWA/WCW/Jim Crockett territory, and, yes, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair will make an appearance at the show (because Greensboro — and North Carolina, by extension — is Ric Flair country). Not stopping there, WWE aims to help make the show as much as a throwback as it possibly can — like NOT broadcasting it live to a larger audience; yes, I AM bitter — by feature an appearance by the limousine-riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheeling-dealing, son-of-a-gun himself, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

Chris Jericho challenges Kenny Omega at New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January!

Well, it certainly appears that Christmas will be arriving both early AND late this year. After “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Trent Barretta at New Japan’s Power Struggle event this past Sunday, Chris Jericho made an appearance on screen, challenging Omega to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 12 on January 4th at the Tokyo Dome. Now, while many long-time wrestling fans know that Y2J is no stranger to the Land of the Rising Sun, his connection to the WWE certainly raises a few eyebrows and makes the impact much bigger.

A Look Back to Just Before Kurt Angle’s Return to a WWE Ring before TLC 2017…

For long-time WWE fans who were watching Sunday’s Tables-Ladders-Chairs pay-per-view, Kurt Angle’s return to in-ring competition with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose was an emotional ride. Although the company ignored his contributions and amazing matches in That Company That Shall Not Be Named Whatever Its Name Is This Week, the experience was something special and endearing, from how goofy he looked in the Shield SWAT gear to his ability to german-suplex all five members of the opposing team and deliver a series of Angle Slams. Some of us even shed a little tear after he secured the pin-fall victory for his team… Continue reading “A Look Back to Just Before Kurt Angle’s Return to a WWE Ring before TLC 2017…”
