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
Dixie Carter is living in a land of delusion off of the river of denial. Carter recently made her first public comments about Spike cancelling Impact. Let’s just say it appears that Dixie never got the memo or read the news on TMZ.com.
For someone with a background in public relations, Dixie is one of the absolute worst promoters I have ever seen with the media. Dixie rarely shoots straight and gives the impression she is living in an extremely isolated world away from the realities of TNA Wrestling. Regardless, these interviews are gifts to blogs like mine so keep them coming.
It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Spike TV will not be renewing their deal with TNA Wrestling. Their deal runs out in October and TNA are allegedly fighting hard to find a new home for Impact. Anything short of a new deal will either sink ..click here to read more

Check out this collection of videos from WWE Monday Night RAW’s Hulk Hogan 61st birthday celebration. The celebration featured the return of legends, a reunion and even a survey in one of the most entertaining segments of the year.
I loved every second of this segment. I have to say that I love the way that Roddy Piper still sells his hatred for Hulk Hogan 30 years later. The scowl on Piper’s face was just simply awesome. I am a big Paul Orndorff fan but he certainly looked out of place here. At one point I thought to myself how cool it would have been for Randy Savage to come out if he were still alive. Imagine that pop!
Speaking of pops, the n.W.o. reunion turned out better than anyone could have expected. There have been numerous reports of Scott Hall falling off of the wagon in recent months on the independents ..click here to read more

The UFC has finally got a blockbuster on its hands. Fireworks erupted today between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones in a brawl that has everyone talking. The buzz is now in place to turn this fight into the biggest rivalry since Sonnen vs. Silva.
Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones don’t like each other. That isn’t news. What is news is that a fight broke out at a UFC press conference for the first time I can remember. Jones put his head on Cormier, Cormier put his hands on Jones, and chaos ensued on the MGM Grand floor in a video that has quickly become viral.
To say that the UFC needed this is one of the biggest understatements you will ever read on here. 2014 has shaped up to be a grim year for the UFC with no grudge matches, cancelled cards, and one super fight signed that won’t even happen until ..click here to read more

I saw greatness on Thursday night. On Thursday night, I saw what tag team wrestling was all about.
If you watched the TNA Impact wrestling match between the Hardys and The Wolves, you saw the passing of the torch of one great combination to another.
I am not a huge fan of the current state of tag teams in the business because of the continual changes and thrown together teams we see night after night. But watching these two teams in the ring, you could sense there was something special on the screen and possibly the finest hour of the Hardy’s in some time. Even on the losing end of the match, Matt and Jeff showed us vintage moves, cohesion and an intensity we remember all too well from the team’s time in the WWE.
The Wolves may be the best tag team in the business today (a match with the Usos would ..click here to read more

While most of the pro wrestling community was surprised to learn that TNA Wrestling would not be renewed by Spike TV, one former TNA star was not. Rampage Jackson says he saw the writing on the wall which is why we won’t ever be seeing him in TNA again.
Rampage was the first major MMA star to agree to work with TNA and earned TNA some much needed publicity when he came over. Many were skeptical but a hot confrontation between he and Kurt Angle created enough buzz to quiet any doubters. Fortunately for those doubters TNA immediately dropped the able creating frustration among fans and the former Pride FC champion.
Rampage recently appeared on The Fight Nerd and talked about his frustrating tenure in TNA. Jackson opened up for the first time about his frustrations and the lost opportunity between him and Angle.
