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

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

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 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.

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

I never in a million years thought I’d see this one coming. The Undertaker has reappeared after going A.W.O.L. since having his streak broken by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. The Undertaker has resurfaced as part of the ice bucket challenge with a mysterious video that you would expect from the dead man.
The Undertaker is arguably the most protective of his character in the pro wrestling business. Rarely do you see this man out of character. While he is out of character here, he still keeps it mysterious. The lights are kept dim but you could hear what I would guess is his little girl’s voice in the background having a great time with her daddy and the challenge. Check it out for yourself!
As far as an actual update or status on the Dead Man that is unknown at this time. The rumor immediately after WrestleMania was that Taker would ..click here to read more
Roman Reigns wrestles The Miz, Seth Rollins battles Jack Swagger, and Rob Van Dam takes on Randy Orton on this week’s WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
The show starts off with Randy Orton coming down for yet another coma-inducing interview. He says that, just because you’ve won the battle, doesn’t mean you’ve won the war. One match doesn’t define him or Roman Reigns. He’s been called the Legend Killer, the Apex Predator and the Viper, but he’s never been called a loser. The loss made him more focused, and when he’s focused, things like this tend to happen. We cut away to a video from last month of Orton putting Reigns through the announce desk with an RKO. Back to Orton, he says that is the Apex Predator, and Reigns will get what he deserves, maybe even tonight. First things first, he has a match with RVD tonight. Sorry, Rob, but you ..click here to read more
The controversial WWE firing of Alberto Del Rio is getting interesting. Alberto Del Rio spoke out for the first time since his release and the former WWE superstar’s recap will certainly not help relations between the WWE and the Latino market.
Alberto was fired a couple of weeks ago seemingly out of nowhere by the WWE. Rumors circulated and details were quickly confirmed regarding the incident. The short story is that the social media manager of the WWE made a racist comment about Alberto which got back to Alberto. ADR confronted the employee who refused to apologize and was slapped for it.
Things heated up over the weekend when Alberto made an appearance at Triple Mania. What does this mean for Alberto’s non-compete? With Triple A coming to the United States, can Alberto be their franchise player? What happens next? Will there be a lawsuit?
Alberto appeared recently on a Mexican morning news ..click here to read more

The Hulkster is at it again! The only person that thinks he hasn’t seen the last Hulk Hogan match is Hulk Hogan. Hogan is not ready to say the word retire just yet and his mind, he has one more match left in him and wants it in a WWE ring.
Hogan appeared on the Matthew Aaron Show recently where he claimed that he has one more match left in him. The Hulkster has one goal in mind and that is to wrestle in a WWE ring one more time. According to the Hulkster, it is not a question of whether he can go, it is a matter of putting the match together.
“Brother, my goal is to perform in the ring again, it’s not if, it’s when, I’ve been training like crazy, my back doesn’t hurt at all, my back’s perfect, (Hulk has had 9 back surgeries) now I’ve finally got ..click here to read more
What happens when arguably the greatest pro wrestler of all-time meets his female counterpart in the MMA world? Ric Flair and Ronda Rousey met for the first time at WWE SummerSlam and Middle Easy cameras captured that magic moment for all of us to see.
This is a very cool video as Middle Easy took video of Rousey and her friends throughout the night at SummerSlam. What makes the meeting between Rousey and Flair so special is that Rousey and her friends travel in a group known as the 4 Horsewomen with Rousey of course known as the Ric Flair of her group.
I am not a big Ronda Rousey fan but I did come away with a more favorable opinion of her after watching this video. Rousey is a big WWE fan and it was great to see her having fun as a “person in the crowd” at SummerSlam, cheering her ..click here to read more

Daniel Bryan is not known for rocking the boat yet even he is not happy with his current angle with wife Brie Bella and he isn’t afraid to tell you. Bryan was recently asked about the angle and the former champion spoke for most of us when he called the storyline flat out “stupid.”
I can’t imagine watching RAW last Monday night who didn’t groan at the new twist in the Stephanie McMahon-Brie Bella feud. The new twist was a revelation that Daniel Bryan is having an affair with his physical therapist Megan Miller. Immediate comparisons were drawn to TNA’s Claire Lynch angle although I think that is a bit of an exaggeration. Regardless, the new layer was not well received within social media and it shouldn’t surprise you that Daniel Bryan found the whole thing downright silly.
Bryan was recently interviewed by IGN.com about his wife’s Brie main-event push and ..click here to read more

Roman Reigns takes on the Miz and Dean Ambrose wrestles Cesaro in the SummerSlam go-home show edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
MATCH 1: DEAN AMBROSE VS. CESARO
Cesaro applies a side headlock, then rams Ambrose with his shoulder. Ambrose comes back with a kitchen sink, and now he’s hitting snap jabs in the corner. Cesaro comes back with various strikes before stomping Ambrose down in the adjacent corner. He drops Ambrose with a straight right, then hits a short-arm clothesline. Cesaro stomps Ambrose down, but Ambrose comes back with some rights, followed by a pair of forearms. Cesaro catches him off the ropes and goes into a fireman’s carry, but Ambrose escapes and clotheslines Cesaro to the floor. Ambrose hits a slingshot plancha, then rolls Cesaro back in. In the corner, Ambrose nails more rights, but Cesaro comes back with a kneelift before throwing Ambrose bad shoulder-first into the ring post. ..click here to read more
