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

10 Of The Most Corny WWE Angles

10 Of The Most Corny WWE Angles

I will be the first to admit that there have been many times I have been embarrassed to be a WWE fan. Here is a look back at ten angles that were so corny, I hoped nobody walked in the room as they played out on WWE television.

We all understand that the WWE is entertainment but there are times where they go so far off of the radar, you have to wonder who exactly they are trying to entertain. To be fair, we don’t see goofy angles like these much today. Yet back in the 80s and 90s, they began creeping up fairly often. In Vince McMahon’s efforts to think outside of the box, he wound up miles away from his intended targets. Here are ten angles that while fun to discuss now, weren’t so fun to watch as they played out.

In Memoriam: The Killing (2011-2014)

by

Score another victory for the online streaming industry. To the delight of its hardcore viewers, Netflix revived the twice cancelled television drama, ‘The Killing’ for a six-episode final season. I’ve been a viewer since day one, and even though this show had its ups and downs, I loved it for what it was, and believed that it ended in the best possible way. If you are unfamiliar with the four season, 44-episode show, here’s a quick synopsis:

Adaptation of a Danish-TV crime drama following investigations by homicide detectives in Seattle. – RottenTomatoes.com

In the early seasons, the investigation of the Rosie Larsen (Katie Findlay) murder seemingly took forever, and the audience was subjected to various storylines that ultimately ended up having nothing to do with the murder or investigation. Every single episode ended with cliffhanger music signifying what would turn out to be a dead end plot point. Season one was actually ..click here to read more

Lesnar’s WWE Reign, Slaughter’s Birthday and Piper’s Words

by

Haven’t we already had enough of Brock Lesnar in the WWE? Haven’t we seen enough to know there is not a true opponent for this beast and therefore, the company has again done the obvious and created something so unrealistic that the “Beast” should go back to the UFC and try his hand at beating opponents half his size, which seems to fail him in the octagon?

Back when time stood still and JJ Dillon was relevant in wrestling circles, the business was about creating a buzz. Now, it is a soft whimper of a noise that gets squashed by Paul Heyman to create the idea that wrestling does not matter – destroying wrestlers and their careers does.

Please excuse me while I throw up. That is bullsh*t.

With the title securely on the shoulder of Lesnar, does this mean we have to wait to see him in the ring again? Should he ..click here to read more

WWE Says No To Kurt Angle

by

Kurt Angle’s dreams of returning to the WWE as a conquering hero will have to wait. A recent report indicates that while Angle would like to finish his career in the WWE, Vince McMahon and Triple H are taking a pass.

Mark Madden reports and Dave Meltzer confirms in the newest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the WWE are not interested in re-signing Angle. According to Meltzer, Angle was not only told no once but was told no twice by the two head honchos. Angle was reportedly blown off by Triple H and went over his head to the Chairman of the Board.

“Angle then called Vince McMahon, but McMahon, playing good cop/bad cop, said that HHH makes the talent decisions. Madden reported that HHH wasn’t happy that Angle tried to go over his head. Angle pushed the idea of returning on a schedule similar to what ..click here to read more

Fixing Bray Wyatt

by

Since debuting last year, the Bray Wyatt character has taken a few hits.

While his entrance and the sudden appearance of his “family” were pretty cool, beat-downs of nobodies like Kane and R-Truth didn’t do much to really help us get a grasp on just who Bray was and what it is he can do.

Since then, he’s had wonderful feuds with the Shield and Daniel Bryan before dying an awful death after feuding with the push-killer known as John Cena. Clearly, there’s potential there for Wyatt to become something bigger, but on his current trajectory, the character feels lost. So what can we do to help get young Bray back on the right path?

First and foremost, Bray is a cult leader. And like any good cult leader, he should be a liar and a fraud. All of these crazy philosophical things he spouts? It should just be a cover to further ..click here to read more

Fantasy Football Laws To Abide By

by

With the first regular season kick off just a little over a week away there are still millions of fantasy drafts waiting to happen.  All over the world average Joe’s are preparing to play both scout and general manager as they try to build a team worthy of a championship.

Everyone’s strategy or road to success might be a little different.  When it comes to fantasy football there is more than one way to skin a cat.  Over the last seven or eight years I have developed a few fantasy laws or guidelines that I abide by.  Sure there are times when I may find it necessary to break a law or two, but for the most part I stick with my “formula.”  So with time being of the essence, here is a few things to consider as you enter the 2014 fantasy football season.  I will try to keep it ..click here to read more

Let’s Talk About the UnderFaker

by

My dad, God rest his soul had five favorite wrestlers: Roddy Piper, Mick Foley, The Road Warriors and The Undertaker. He liked Piper because he hated Hogan and said whatever on his mind (My dad: original SMARK), Foley because he was one crazy tough SOB, The Road Warriors because of his Chicago roots (I know they were from Minnesota and he knew but still) and The Undertaker because it reminded him of Michael Myers when he sat up, plus it was a badass gimmick.

He used to scare the shit out of me whenever he did it to me whenever I was distracted, so PARENTING! I remember before the 1996 King of the Ring actually getting the chance to meet The Undertaker at Seven Mile Fair (Visualize a giant-ass rummage sale) and I think my dad was looking forward to it more than anybody else. Fun fact, it was supposed to ..click here to read more
