Photo Credit – WWE HBK vs Bret Hart, Flair vs Savage, Stone Cold vs The Rock… these are all some of the greatest feuds in professional wrestling history. A serious case of “what if” would be CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan. CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan had potential to be an all time great feud just like the ones mentioned above. So why wasn’t it? Before I get into that, allow me to explain why it could have been. Daniel Bryan In one corner was Daniel Bryan. A world renowned technical great. Daniel Bryan’s name is mentioned with those like…

Last night at Money in the Bank, there could have been several chances to get a new Universal Champion crowned. The boo’s for Roman Reigns the last two events have been ugly… and they don’t differ from the boo’s of when he was a baby face. Some may like to cook up the excuse that Roman is a heel so he is going to get booed, but we all know heels get cheered when they are genuinely liked. Roman has been…

So much so that I have decided to write a tribute article to you. Sit back, relax, and allow me to be the first to welcome you back. For nearly a year and a half, Covid-19 has prohibited live audiences from attending WWE shows, and all sports in general. A world ravaged by a pandemic.. lives, hope, and happiness lost; but we haven’t given up. We took blows, but we fought back. Now…

Photo Credit – Twitter As the “pandemic era” of professional wrestling nears its final week, I would be remiss to not do a tribute.

Photo Credit – Cultaholic The 2021 Money In The Bank PPV appears to be headlined by Edge vs Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. For nearly an entire year it has been impossible to determine who will dethrone Roman Reigns. At last, multiple storylines running through M.I.T.B provide multiple triggers to pull. Edge Spears Reigns When Edge returned to Smackdown two weeks ago to set up a match with Roman Reigns, he did so with an unforeseen fury in his eyes. They say “the eyes tell the story,” and that’s exactly what they did. Edge appeared to be possessed. Possessed…

Photo Credit – WWE Earlier this week WWE made a list of the top 50 tag teams in history. Surprisingly to some, and not-so surprisingly to others, WWE crowned New Day number one. Allow me to dive in to arguments as to why they may deserve the spot, as well as rebuttal why I feel they don’t. The New Day When I say that New Day shouldn’t be number one, it isn’t slander.

Photo Credit – Indian Express When all hope seemed lost… when it appeared like there was absolutely no one to challenge for the Universal Championship, WWE kicked the door wide open. On Smackdown last night, 2 apparent challengers for the Universal Championship emerged in Seth Rollins & Edge.

We also can’t forget about the potential threat of “Mr. Money in the Bank.” Seth Rollins Photo Credit – WWE On this week’s Smackdown, Seth Rollins…

Photo Credit – Comic Book Last night was the Hell in a Cell PPV, headlined by Bobby Lashley vs Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. There were several fun matches on the card, or at least that’s how it appeared until the match finishes proved to be detrimental, not only to the matches, but to the show. Out of a card of 6 matches, only 2 had straight forward finishes that made sense. Bianca Belair defeated Bayley in clean fashion, and Sami Zayn defeated Kevin Owens in clean fashion. Every single other match on the card had a sloppy or…

Photo Credit – Wrestling Inc Last night at NXT Takeover: In Your House we witnessed an absolute classic ‘Fatal 5 Way.’ Adam Cole, KOR, Johnny Gargano, and Pete Dunne attempted to pry the NXT championship from Kross… to no avail. With this successful championship defense by Kross, it begs the question.. who can beat him? Kross after defeating Balor – NXT: May 25, 2021 Since capturing the NXT Championship from Finn Balor at Stand & Deliver, Kross has seemed more unstoppable than ever.
