nWo: The Revolution WWE DVD Review

by

One of the most anticipated WWE DVD released I can remember has to be this three-disc set. I went out as soon as I had a chance and bought the new documentary, “nWo: the Revolution.” Granted they put out a documentary of one of the most influential groups in the last 20 years about ten years ago, yet I was excited for the new material for this DVD release and a different perspective. Throughout this blog, I’ll be giving some of my thoughts on what was discussed in the documentary.

“We shall rule FOR LIFE!” proclaims the leader, Hulk Hogan in the opening scene of the documentary.

The documentary opens with the explanation of Jim Crockett Promotions being sold to Ted Turner. In 1993 Eric Bischoff came in and took office and the book, and came up with the brilliant idea of the invasion. Bischoff followed a long line of WCW bookers ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE.com Ranks The Top 50 WCW Greatest Stars

by

WCW top 50Here we go again. WWE.com is at it again with another controversial WCW list. In typical WWE fashion their new Top 50 WCW stars list has the typical bias and will inspire debate from now until their next list comes out. If you are looking for objectivity here, you may as well look somewhere else.

While I am not a huge fan of these kinds of lists, they do provide good fodder for pro wrestling fans. Let’s be completely frank here. Any list of top 50 stars when it comes to wrestling is a stretch. Judging how big a star that a pro wrestler is by titles or main-events while fun, is really a baseless argument because at the end of the day it is the booker or creative team that decides how big of a star a professional ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE: The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions DVD Review

by

WWE: The Best of WCW Clash of the Champions DVDDespite always being given away on free TV, there was a time when Clash of the Champions was considered one of the biggest wrestling events in the world, on par with big shows like Wrestlemania. The shows featured a little bit of everything, from title matches, to great undercard bouts, to main events that were pay-per-view quality.

In existence for thirteen years, the show was seen twice a year or more, clocking in at thirty-five total installments. Currently, it has more installments than any other major wrestling show in U.S. history, a record WrestleMania won’t break for another eight years. The first show went head-to-head with WrestleMania IV in 1988, and was a huge success, main evented ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Top Ten Greatest Stables In Pro Wrestling

by

One of the most fun components of pro wrestling growing up was the faction or stable. Evil managers generally assembled an all-star roster of top heels to organize for one sole purpose, destroy the top hero! Today I look back at the ten best stables in pro wrestling.

Some of the best memories of watching wrestling as a kid came from the stables. Whether it was Captain Lou Albano’s army of rotating villains challenging Bob Backlund, the Heenan Family’s obsession with Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan, or Dusty Rhodes getting jumped in a parking lot by the Four Horsemen, wrestling stables provided some of the best entertainment in the country.

I thought it would be fun to take a look back and countdown some of the best stables in pro wrestling. I compiled this list from a deep memory of old school wrestling, lots of tape watching in my later years, ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Has WWE blown the opportunity to turn John Cena heel?

by

John Cena RAW promoWhile I don’t consider myself to be a booker or an armchair quarter back, I think that the WWE dropped the ball to turn John Cena heel at the Survivor Series. The company had the perfect setting at the perfect venue with the perfect match, and yet again they continue to keep Cena as a face.

I did not order the event because I felt that there was a 99.99% percent chance that WWE would not “pull the trigger” to turn Cena heel. Yet Cena was practically booed out of Madison Square Garden from what I read on various websites.

Creative could have had Cena turn on The Rock with him (Cena) joining up with The Miz and R-Truth to cause an “injury” storyline, followed by Cena taunting ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , ,

What was the point of bringing Kevin Nash back? – Inside The Wheelhouse

by

Kevin Nash firedKevin Nash has been (storyline) released from the WWE via Triple H on RAW this past Monday Night and also “future endeavored” on WWE.com for all to see. The “release” on WWE.com prompted many to wonder if he was actually in-fact released from the company or if it was a storyline, if you went with storyline you got that question right.

With all the recent Kevin Nash release hoopla from the WWE and without a single match under his belt during his brief time back on the main roster, one has to wonder…what was the point of bringing Kevin Nash back?

I have always been a Kevin Nash fan. While he may not be the greatest wrestling booker in the world (i.e. “Finger poke of Doom”), he has been ..click here to read more , , , , ,

(CM) Punk World Order?

by

CM Punk World OrderIf you were watching WWE Raw Monday night, your ears probably perked up when the unmistakable theme of the nWo played as Kevin Nash made his way to the ring. All over Facebook, I saw posts like “Popped HUGE for the n.W.o theme!”, “nWo 2011?“, etc. Then, the match was made; CM Punk vs. Kevin Nash at WWE Night of Champions. As we saw later on, that match was changed to CM Punk vs. Triple H at Night of Champions 2011.

I, like many of you, was wondering why a match of that caliber is being used on a PPV event that’s not one of the “big four”. Then my mind started running & I thought to myself that this may very well be a revival ..click here to read more , , , ,

RAW Rating Disappoints Following Money in the Bank 2011

by

Vince Mcmahon FiredAfter a disappointing go-home rating, many expected big things the night after all of the excitement surrounding the final moments of WWE Money in the Bank 2011. Unfortunately that excitement didn’t translate into big numbers.

If there was ever a RAW rating to watch, it was the July 18 RAW rating. As excited as most of the hardcore pro wrestling fans were about the CM Punk angle at Money in the Bank, all were left stunned when last week’s rating hit the newswire.

by

Bruno Sammartino is under consideration for a WWE DVDThe WWE will send out fan surveys from time to time to get feedback on possible ideas. The latest WWE fan survey is about upcoming DVD releases. While the WWE has yet to commit to any of these, there are some fascinating DVD ideas on the table that are both exciting and a little surprising.

Topping the list is an idea to do a DVD collection paying tribute to former WWWF world champion, the Living Legend Bruno Sammartino. The WWE included Bruno Sammartino in the list of home video subjects currently under consideration. The DVD would mark the first WWE ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
