WWE Top 10 Video: World Championship Victories

by

The WWE has posted one of the more interesting top 10 lists on its YouTube channel. The WWE ranks the top 10 WWE championship wins in a list that is bound to stir debate among wrestling fans.

Before I get into anything I just want to preface this by saying you have to take these lists for what they are. It is someone’s opinion the same as I have my opinion and you have yours. Thus there really is no right or wrong list when it comes to something this subjective. That said, this list is ridiculous!

10 – The Rock defeats Triple H (Backlash 2000) 9 – Eddie Guerrero defeats Brock Lesnar (No Way Out 2004) 8 – Mankind defeats The Rock (Monday Night Raw, 1999) 7 – Randy Savage defeats Ted DiBiase (WrestleMania 4) 6 – Ultimate Warrior defeats Hulk Hogan (WrestleMania 6) 5 – Daniel Bryan defeats Batista, Randy Orton (WrestleMania 30) 4 – John ..click here to read more

Happy 35th Birthday WWE Intercontinental Championship

by

The WWE Intercontinental championship celebrates its 35th birthday today. The Inertcontinental title has wrapped around the waists of some of the greatest workers in WWE history. Its present value may be diminished but its place in history remains strong.

It is almost impossible for someone watching pro wrestling today to understand what the I-C title meant for several decades to WWE fans and wrestlers. At one time some would argue the best workers in the company were rewarded with this prestigious title. Today the title is more a curse than a blessing, but that doesn’t change 35 years of rich history.

The WWE recently ranked the top 25 champions in I-C history on WWE.com. I did my own ranking a few years ago here on the CCB. Our top ten was very similar, yet we couldn’t be further apart on our overall first choice. My number ..click here to read more

WWE SmackDown Results and August 29 Recap

by

Roman Reigns teams with the World’s Strongest Team to take on the Wyatts this week on WWE Friday Night SmackDown.

MATCH 1: ROMAN REIGNS VS. BRAY WYATT (W/LUKE HARPER AND ERICK ROWAN) The two lock up, and Wyatt breaks free to nail some rights. Reigns throws him to the corner and mounts the middle buckle for some rights of his own. Wyatt escapes and pulls Reigns’ foot from underneath him. Reigns gets whipped across the ring, but rebounds with a clothesline. He hits a few more rights until Wyatt tosses him to the floor. He lands on his feet and gets back on the apron. Wyatt kicks him on the way back in, then hits a vertical splash, knocking Reigns to the floor near the Family. Outside, Wyatt blasts Reigns with a clothesline, then rolls him back in for 1. Wyatt nails Reigns in the back of the head before applying a ..click here to read more

Hulk Hogan Talks WWE RAW Birthday Bash, Vince McMahon, and Roman Reigns

by

Hulk Hogan continues making the rounds to promote the WWE Network and WWE 2K15. A recent interview heard the Hulkster talk about his RAW birthday bash, Vince McMahon, and the next Hulk Hogan or John Cena.

Hogan, along with John Cena recently spoke to Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald. I wanted to focus more on Hogan’s comments as Cena didn’t really say anything ground breaking other than naming Sting, Hogan, and Steve Austin as dream opponents. Hogan on the other hand opened up a little bit more.

One of the most memorable RAW moments of the year just took place a couple of weeks ago. The Hulk Hogan Birthday Bash saw Hogan reunite with friends and enemies from different eras of his career. Roddy Piper, Paul Orndorff, the n.W.o., and others paid respect to the Hulkster. According to Hogan, things did not go as planned.

The WWE Needs A Television Timeout…NOW!

by

There are times when the writer must step over a line and write as a fan, not some worried about crossing lines between journalist and a once-in-a- while raving lunatic in the stands. This happens to be one of those times. Please indulge me a bit as I must speak about the ongoing, committed cycle the WWE is running around – trying to please its fans without getting anywhere. I think that happens to be the definition of idiocy, but I would not want to accuse Vince McMahon and his cronies of such a title. What I would like, however, is to point out the obvious – the WWE and maybe professional wrestling in general needs a television timeout.

While it may seem a bit off kilter, and I may seem off my rocker (it’s 1:30 in the morning and no, I have not been drinking), but this might make sense ..click here to read more

WWE.com Rank the Best Intercontinental Champions in History

by

The WWE Intercontinental championship is just days away from turning 35 (and I will have an extensive blog on that next week) and WWE.com is looking back at the greats that held the title. WWE.com has ranked the top 25 champs of all-time and while they got many right, they got many wrong.

The intercontinental title means different things for fans of different WWE eras. For fans like me that started watching wrestling in 1982, the I-C title is the “worker’s championship”, a reward for the hardest workers in the company. For today’s fans, it is a title generally served to the low-mid carders with absolutely no prestige or value.

The WWE has started celebrating the 35th anniversary of the title early. WWE.com put together a controversial list of the top 25 Intercontinental title champions of all-time. Of course you have to take these lists with a grain of salt and understand ..click here to read more

Hulk Hogan Talks NWO, Heel Turn, and Old Matches

by

Hulk Hogan was right in the middle of the Monday Night Wars sixteen years ago. The legend of those wars have resurfaced due to a new WWE Network series and Hogan offered a fascinating retrospective in a recent interview.

Hogan gave a recent interview to USA Today focusing on those infamous Monday Night Wars. Hogan arguably offered more introspective on the period in this interview than he has on the recent Monday Night War episodes, although to be fair he has been very good. Here are just some of the highlights..

Hogan was asked how he enjoyed his heel turn with the n.W.o. compared to being the top hero in the business at its peak in the 1980s.

“I was kind of at the crossroads. Vince [McMahon] and I had parted ways a couple of years before, he had an opinion about Hulk Hogan and his longevity and I had a totally different ..click here to read more

Shawn Michaels Talks WWE Career, DX, and Dream Opponents

by

Shawn Michaels is one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time so when he talks about his career and reflects back at a golden era for fans that watched him come up through the ranks.

Michaels gave an interview to the Times where he talked about his career, a lot on DX, and some words about the current state of affairs. Here are some highlights….

Michaels was asked if there was anyone he would have liked to wrestle in his prime past or present who would it be?

“Ricky Steamboat. I would love to have gotten into it with Harley Race. He was such a good wrestler and rough and tough. We wrestled at the same time but never each other. And wrestling Sting would have been something I would have enjoyed. That would have been great at the box office. But if I had to pick, it would be Steamboat or Race.”

Best and Worst of WWE Royal Rumble 1993

by

After watching part one of the WWE Network’s “Monday Night War” series, I decided that I would take full advantage of the Network and go back to when it all started. With Raw beginning to air in January of 1993, I’d follow the WWF on pay-per-view going forward and pick up the WCW when Nitro starts in September of 1995.

The first pay-per-view on the docket just happens to be one of the more exciting each year: the Royal Rumble.

Best: The Gorilla and The Brain

There may not have been a better commentary team in wrestling history. Gorilla played the straight man to Heenan’s sniveling, weasel character and he played it to perfection.

The back-and-froth between the two was fantastic, with Heenan making hilarious comment after hilarious comment and Gorilla not buying a damn second of it. This was back before we had clearly defined face and heel commentators and not just three ..click here to read more

10 Things to Take Into Your NFL Fantasy Football Draft

by

Note: This is a re-post of a blog that originally appeared on the CCB on August 23, 2011. The names may be a different but the information remains the same.

It’s that time of year again, friends. Have there been spikes around the office or classroom in the usage of terms like sleepers, upside, and injury risk? Armchair quarterbacks everywhere are gearing up for their league’s fantasy draft, and if you haven’t had the pleasure of being sucked into the frenzy, you’re a combination of foreign, old, or female.

But a lot’s changed since the last time we were feverishly rooting for Peyton Hillis in a game between two teams with a combined eight wins. There was a lockout, thousands of transactions happened over a couple of weeks, and Randy Moss retired. And maybe David Akers, but more on that later.

Still though, some things have remained the same, and that includes various ..click here to read more
