Dixie Carter Has Nobody to Blame but Herself

by

When I work at six in the morning, I’m usually in bed at about seven at night and up around four in the morning. I pop on the coffee, pop on America This Morning have a bowl of Special K Chocolately Delight and hit the internet for a while. I check my e-mail to see what our death match overlord’s reaction to my latest article is (Most of it “You know they’re gonna kill you right?). I have the sites I check while trying to down my less than perfect coffee: Facebook, CCB, The Real TSM, Cageside Seats, Spoony Experiment Forum, Twitter, and ProFootballTalk. This morning, I woke up to news that Spike had made the decision to not renew TNA. Apparently, the revelation that TNA was keeping Vince Russo on staff as an announcing consultant despite Spike saying that they didn’t want Russo on staff was the last straw.

10 Hulk Hogan Alternatives To Be WWF Champion In 1984

I am not a big fan of “what ifs” but a recent podcast discussion got me thinking. What would have happened in 1984 if Hulk Hogan wasn’t available to the WWF? Who could Vince McMahon Jr. pick to beat the Iron Sheik and lead his quest to take over the world of pro wrestling?

A recent podcast at drew my attention to this topic. The guys had a fascinating discussion about the best choice to become WWWF champion in 1978 if Bob Backlund wasn’t available? The podcast immediately prompted me to think about the same question but in regards to a Hogan-alternative. Thus it didn’t take long to stop the podcast and start typing this blog.

So here is the scenario. Hulk Hogan is unavailable to Vince McMahon for whatever reason. Whether he is injured or preferred to stay in the AWA and work his New Japan gig, he isn’t ..click here to read more

Brock Lesnar Needs to beat John Cena at WWE SummerSlam

by

For the first time since WrestleMania, Brock Lesnar made an appearance on WWE television last Monday night.  He showed up on RAW as Plan C for the Authority.  In what was the worst kept secret of all-time, Lesnar will be facing John Cena at SummerSlam for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  It’s absolutely imperative for Brock to defeat Cena and be the Champion going into WrestleMania next year.

Since Daniel Bryan defeated Cena at SummerSlam last year, the title just hasn’t felt important.  Between the title switching hands multiple times and being stripped, there’s no mystique around the championship right now.

Let’s review what’s gone down over the last year.

At SummerSlam Bryan defeated Cena clean to win the WWE Championship.  Thanks to Triple H as the special guest referee and the ever-powerful pedigree, Orton took advantage of the situation and cashed in his Money in the Bank contract.

The following pay-per-view, Bryan defeated ..click here to read more

TNA Wrestling Reportedly Losing Spike TV Contract

by

TNA Wrestling is literally on life support. Multiple reports indicate that Spike TV will not be renewing their contract with TNA. TNA will have the next sixty days to secure a new deal or face a grim situation in the near future.

TMZ.com was the first to go on record and report that Spike TV have opted not to renew their agreement with TNA Wrestling. Negotiations have been ongoing for months with many believing that a deal was imminent. Unfortunately a big email blunder looks like it may have tipped the scales and given Spike second thoughts on pursuing future business with the company.

Dave Meltzer reports on F4Wonline.com that Spike TV/Viacom were very upset when news broke that Vince Russo was employed by the company. Meltzer reports that there is heat there and the Spike folks don’t like Russo. While it is unfair to blame Vince Russo ..click here to read more

Too Many UFC Shows Could Be a Good Thing

by

There are way too many UFC events to keep track of these days. Some will disagree and call me out on not being a “true fan” but with television ratings and pay-per-view buy rates on the decline, the results speak for themselves. After looking at the totality of events from years past, the problem doesn’t simply lie in the number of events, but the lack of stars. I think the reason why there are so many UFC shows is because they’re hoping to create new stars.

Until now, the UFC has always possessed a number of star attractions to attract an audience. Gracie, Shamrock, Severn, Abbott, and Coleman boosted the company during its inception to mythological proportions. During the dark ages, Ortiz, Randleman, Rizzo, and Miletich kept the company afloat. One reality show later and business boomed like never before. Hughes, Penn, Liddell, Couture, Griffin, Mir, Lesnar, GSP, and A. Silva ..click here to read more

Five Reasons You Cannot Blame Kevin Nash for the WWE Collapse in 1995

by

I hope ESPN doesn’t sue me for this.

For those of you that remember, ESPN had a show called “The Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Blame” in-which they’d look at an infamous moment in sports history and defend those who were blamed for it. They covered subjects from Bill Buckner to Steve Bartman or the BCS for not having a playoff. It was a great show that I wish was still on the air, because it’s sure as shit better than watching Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless “debating”. It was also hosted by the eternally awesome Brain Kenny, who once again is much, much better than Bayless or Smith.

In 1995, the WWE was beginning to hype a “New Generation” marketing campaign, a fresh start for the company. Vince McMahon had just finished a lengthy battle with the federal government and the stars of the Hulkamania days were gone. Vince was ..click here to read more

CM Punk Moves on With his Life With No Regard of Your Approval

by

You know those writers that see an interview or read a headline and it just compels them to go off and bang away on their laptops to get their thoughts on the subject down as soon as possible? Sure you do. You’re a pro wrestling fan. That’s why you’re reading this, right? And you yourself obviously read this particular headline so you know what this piece is about. Now it’s very likely you’ve heard more about CM Punk in the past few days than you perhaps ever wanted to. If that’s the case then you should know you’re about to hear a lot more.

Again, you read the headline. Oh, just so you know? I’m one of those aforementioned writers. And no, I just couldn’t wait to get this out. So now you get to join in on the fun. Yay for you. For anyone that saw The Best in the ..click here to read more

UFC on FOX: Lawler vs Brown – Lessons Learned

by

On Saturday night the Octagon touched down in San Jose, California for the 12th installment of the UFC on FOX.  The fight card was filled with exciting matchups including a main event where the winner would be next in line for Johny Hendricks welterweight championship.  Here are my lessons learned from a fun night of fights on FOX.

Lesson 1: New Number 1 Contender

Robbie Lawler is the new number one contender to the UFC Welterweight Championship.  That means we will get to see a rematch of the awesome fight between Johny Hendricks and Lawler from March. Since coming back to the UFC, Lawler has been simply dominant and I did not see this coming.

Lawler lost 5 of his 8 fights in Strikeforce, so there where not many expectations when he made his return to the UFC.  In his five fights back, he knocked out Josh Koscheck, Bobby Voelker and Jake Ellenberger. ..click here to read more

The Love and Dislike of Triple H

by

In terms of wrestling ability, Triple H, the COO of the WWE needs no explanation.

In the course of his WWE career, Triple H has held a total of 23 championships, including the WWF/WWE Championship on eight occasions and the World Heavyweight Championship on five occasions. He was the winner of both the 1997 King of the Ring tournament and the 2002 Royal Rumble, and has wrestled in the main event of WrestleMania, WWE’s flagship pay-per-view, on six occasions (WrestleManias 2000, X-8, XX, 21, 22, and the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania). Outside of professional wrestling, he has made numerous guest appearances in film and on television.

He is easily one of the greatest performers of the modern era and could be considered a Ric Flair-esque superstar who prided himself on being one of the dirtiest players in the game.

Now that it appears everything within the company starts and stops at the feet ..click here to read more
