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 , ,

Dean Ambrose Should Beat Brock Lesnar For The WWE Title

by

I try not to jump on the bandwagon but this Dean Ambrose bandwagon is rolling full steam ahead. The last few weeks have convinced me of one thing. The Lunatic Fringe is the guy who should beat Brock Lesnar.

It was never meant to be this way. A few weeks ago when Randy Orton pinned Dean Ambrose the message was clear. His push was going to be capped. There were no future plans for Ambrose other than a series against Seth Rollins and a nice spot in the mid-card. He wasn’t at Orton’s level, he wasn’t at Rollins’ level, he wasn’t close to Reigns, and he certainly was not in Lesnar’s league. That has all changed.

Ambrose is the breath of fresh air this company has been searching for the last few years. The rotation of guys in and out of the mid-top spots has been disappointing and uninspiring. Even CM Punk’s ..click here to read more , ,

Brock Lesnar Needs Paul Heyman’s Mouth to Remain WWE Champion

by

Is there a better manager/heel duo in the history of professional wrestling than Paul Heyman and his client – and the current WWE World Champion, Brock Lesnar? Is there a better example of how a manager is to be properly used in and out of the ring than the man who advises the one who was the one who not only beat the one as in the one in 21-1, but also took down the one as in the one who has been the one – and only – constant in the WWE over the course of the last decade? Yes, Paul Heyman is the One.

With the WWE’s changing of the guard and the newly crowned champion, the importance of the role Heyman plays in the longevity of Lesnar’s title reign is severe. Honestly, this is Heyman’s reign – not The Beast.

A manager is somewhat like a storyline agent for ..click here to read more ,

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Lessons Learned

by

Going into WWE SummerSlam, there were three things that I felt had to happen. The first thing was Dolph Ziggler winning the Intercontinental Championship. The second was Chris Jericho had to put Bray Wyatt over. Finally, Brock Lesnar had to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. From top to bottom, I thought SummerSlam was an entertaining show. Here are my lessons learned from Sunday.

The Conqueror is on top I’ve been saying it since the day he defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania and it finally happened. Brock Lesnar absolutely destroyed John Cena to win the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and that’s without question the right decision. Really, it was the only decision.

Just because Lesnar is the champion now, don’t expect to see him on TV more. I expect him to continue to work his normal schedule and that’s fine with me. Having the title away from TV makes the title more prestigious. ..click here to read more , , , , ,

The Perfection in the Biggest WWE Fight of the Summer

by

That was perfect.

Brock Lesnar vs John Cena at SummerSlam in the way that it was booked was perfect. Everybody expected a highly completive match, and when they had Brock hit the F-5, I knew what they were going with the curveball. If you think about how they’ve built Lesnar this year, anything but an absolute mauling would be a total failure in my mind. He destroyed two of the biggest guys on the roster who still have some value with little difficulty (Sorry Khali), destroyed The Undertaker, conquered the streak and and massacred a 15-time champion with EASE. To quote a poster on the /wooo/ message board, if Godzilla and King Kong had a kid, Brock Lesnar would take its lunch money at the bus stop every day.

The match was booked perfectly. Lesnar mauls Cena with suplexes, knees, and ground and pound while Cena gets his bursts of offense here ..click here to read more , ,

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Thoughts

by

The WWE did what was best for business Sunday night by hitting a home run with its SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Los Angeles. Not since WrestleMania 28 have we been so entertained with matches that made wrestling matter and help define the next four months of the wrestling calendar.

For now, we know everything belongs to Brock Lesnar, the Bellas are headed for a crash course in sibling rivalry and the Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins feud is far from over. But what may puzzle me most is what happens now that the biggest wrestling event of the summer is over and John Cena will now fall down the ladder a bit, AJ Lee and Paige will feud like Trish and Lita and the company did the right thing by putting the Intercontinental strap on Dolph Ziggler.

Everything was almost perfect (with the exception of the final match of the night) but by dominating ..click here to read more , , , , , , ,

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Results & Recap: Brock Wins, Shield Shine

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Results & Recap: Brock Wins, Shield Shine

The Brock Lesnar era is back! Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena to win the WWE championship in the 27th SummerSlam main-event. The  show will be remembered for the most one-sided headliner in SummerSlam history and a match of the year candidate between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Brock Lesnar squashed John Cena to win the WWE world title. There are very few WWE matches that I get excited about these days but this was one of them. Their Extreme Rules 2012 match is still one of my favorite matches of the last several years. The rematch didn’t disappoint although I liked the more competitive Extreme Rules bout better. Lesnar hit an F5 in the first minute of the match! Lesnar continued to toss Cena around for a while, making it look easy. The storyline early was Cena trying to fight back with no success against Brock. The announcers put over the ..click here to read more , , , , , , ,

SummerSlam 2014 Predictions and Preview

by

Sunday is WWE’s Summerslam, the “Wrestlemania of the summer” where the stakes usually get higher and the matches become more high profile.

Unfortunately for us, the WWE thinks making the main event a good one and the rest of the card look like your standard RAW is enough to make us sign up for the Network (just $9.99!) or order on pay-per-view. Seriously, outside of Wrestlemania, every pay-per-view is starting to feel the same. Just the same matches we see over and over and over again, like someone swapped out the marker for the dry-erase board in the back with a permanent marker. “Shit, guys. Reigns vs Orton won’t come off the board, what do I do? Eh, don’t worry about it. No one will notice.”

Still, there are matches on the card and somebody has to predict them. That’s where yours truly comes in. Let’s get to it.

Hulk Hogan WWE RAW Birthday Videos

by

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 , , , , , , , ,

50 Greatest WWE SummerSlam Matches Ever

by
50 Greatest WWE SummerSlam Matches Ever

So here it is! The ultimate compilation of great and historic SummerSlam WWE matches. Here are the 50 greatest matches ever from the biggest party from the WWE summer extravaganza.

50. MILLION DOLLAR CHAMPIONSHIP: TED DIBIASE VS. VIRGIL (August 26, 1991 – New York, NY) One of the most underrated matches in WWE history, and Virgil’s greatest match ever, sees Virgil pay off years of indifferent abuse from Dibiase, knocking him out on an exposed turnbuckle, all while Rowdy Roddy Piper, Virgil’s motivator, did one hell of an acting job at the commentary table.

49. ROCKERS/TITO SANTANA VS. FABULOUS ROUGEAU BROTHERS/RICK MARTEL (August 28, 1989 – East Rutherford, NJ) Go ahead, find the weakest worker in the match, I dare you. Just a tremendous back and forth contest with three skilled faces, and three heels who knew the formula. Just think, if Strike Force never broke up, this would have been an amazing TLC ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Stephanie McMahon, Raw and Other WWE Thoughts

by

Either the WWE did the smartest thing this year in turning Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella into a main event match, or the company is struggling so much it is hoping for any kind of ratings to boost failing story ideas.  The segment Monday night with Stephanie and Brie was so reminiscent of the inner workings of “daddy” Vince McMahon it was sick.

And oh, so salacious.

The best thing about seeing something like this is the fact that – although the company does not see it the same way – but a new form of the “Attitude Era” has returned to Monday night.

Hallelujah!

It could also become the precursor to the return of Daniel Bryan – who while not in the picture for the WWE World Title, challenging the Authority and Triple H is something that produces two things – the almighty dollar at the gate and of course – RATINGS!
