After being one of New Japan’s most reliable main eventers for three years running. However, these top matches stopped coming for Suzuki. Despite a lackluster first eight months, the tides shifted on one single night. On September 5th, 2021, Minoru Suzuki debuted at All Out to confront Jon Moxley, the Boogeyman of New Japan Pro Wrestling. Suzuki garnered one of the loudest reactions from the Chicago crowd, starting his US…

This will now set up Lesnar vs Reigns for WrestleMania, for both top titles. While this speaks to the larger of WWE not creating other stars, I want to focus on their lack of focus on the WWE Championship. The WWE title, a belt that has stretched for nearly sixty years, was the most prestigious title in wrestling, held by countless legends. However, the past five years have been a difficult time for the…

Photo Credit-Essentially Sports On the January 10th episode of Raw, RK-Bro lost their Tag Team Titles to Alpha Academy. This ended their 4-plus month reign, being one of the highlights of Raw each week. While a rematch is in order, I believe that not only should RK-Bro not only lose the match but should break up in the immediate future. The pairing of Riddle and Randy Orton has been a gold mine for WWE, being an extremely entertaining odd couple who have been one of the best things about Raw for the past calendar year. Despite still being quite a…

With less than 30 women on Raw and Smackdown combined, there were plenty of questions who would fill those remaining spots. Many speculated that WWE would fill the rumble with either NXT stars or bring back old legends. However, no one expected that they would go to another company for talent. But in a surprising move, current Impact Knockouts champion Mickie James has been announced for the Royal Rumble, as the so called “Forbidden…

Photo Credits-Wrestling Inc, Cultaholic On January 4, New Japan will present the first night of their annual Wrestle Kingdom show. While there are many intriguing matches on the card, the one with the most excitement is the main event as IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Tagaki defends his title against “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada. However, that will only be the first match for the championship, as Will Ospreay will face the winner of that match on night two the next day. I believe that it would be smart to crown a new champion this week, and here’s why. First, a…

However, one of my fellow writers at Wrestling Republic already covered that topic. So, I will be using this article to look towards the future, and how to improve wrestling in 2022. (Remember these are just my opinions and thoughts, and by no means guidelines or standards for promotions, wrestlers, and fans).

Photo Credits-WWE, Cageside Seats When talking about the greatest wrestlers of the 21st Century, AJ Styles will always be near the top of the list. Styles has had an illustrious career spanning over twenty years. He spent the first fifteen or so years as a staple of wrestling outside the WWE, working primarily for ROH, TNA, and NJPW. What separated Styles from most other wrestlers was his superior wrestling ability. Between his athleticism, technical prowess, wrestling psychology and awareness, he was able to cement himself as one of the greatest of the modern era. He put on spectacular matches with…

Photo Credits-Sports Illustrated, F4W Online, Cageside Seats While Impact isn’t talked about nearly enough, they have multiple marquee talents up and down their roster. One part is the established legends, like Tommy Dreamer and Rhino. Their talented Knockouts roster, including Deonna Purazzo, Mercedes Martinez, and Mickie James. Perhaps their strong suit of the X-division with performers like Rohit Raju, Ace Austin, or Trey Miguel.  What often gets lost in the shuffle is their main event picture. While not as deep as the rest of the roster, the main event has been in good hands thanks to Moose. Moose started off…

Photo Credit-ComicBook.com On the September 29th episode of Dynamite, Sammy Guevara defeated Miro, handing God’s Favorite Champion his first loss and winning the TNT Championship. By having Guevara dethrone Miro and his great title run, it showed great faith in the Spanish God, and should have led to a wave of momentum that propelled Sammy into the main event scene. Unfortunately, his booking since then has been disappointing. Even though this article is largely negative, there have been several moments and matches I have enjoyed from the reign of the Spanish God. The biggest advantage of the TNT title is…

On the December 15th episode of Dynamite at Winter is Coming, the show kicked off with the AEW World Championship Match between Bryan Danielson and “Hangman” Adam Page. The match ended in a 60-minute time limit draw, and while the booking doesn’t make sense to some people, it is undeniable that these two tremendous athletes went out and put on one of the best matches of the year. This should encourage both AEW and WWE to embrace the longer match format, and not be afraid to go 30+ minutes on national television. The TV show has become a crucial part…
