The days of Zack Ryder are long gone. Since departing from WWE, Matt Cardona has been on fire. He has been tearing up the independent scene since leaving the pro wrestling juggernaut. Nowadays, there are a lot of places for competitors to perform outside WWE. Companies like AEW and TNA are successful in their own right. It shows that a pro wrestler doesn’t need to be part of a big company to gain notoriety.

It’s been clear over the past couple of weeks now that WWE are implementing more elements that we usually see in sports like Boxing, MMA and Football, into their programming.   Since the departure of Kevin Dunn from the company, WWE have already started making significant changes to the production of their show. We’ve seen footage of talent like Cody Rhodes and CM Punk arriving into the arena before the show starts, just to promote a certain match or segment even more. But just recently, the company have made changes to the way they conduct their backstage interviews. After we saw…

Why? Anthem, you hair-brained idiots, why? This is single-handedly the easiest and most efficient way to take any hype away from the rebuild you have going on. Scott D’Amore (with the assistance of Callis) saved Impact from near-death and brought back the feeling to TNA after all these years. You’re getting some of your highest PPV buys in years and the highest ticket sales in eight years, yet you still sack him? Let’s just dive into how stupid of a decision this is.

“The people united will never be defeated” Cesar Chavez On Saturday I wrote an article about my thoughts and opinions in regards to The Rock vs Roman Reigns WrestleMania 40 match. It was the only piece that I have ever written for Wrestling Republic that was fueled by anger and disgust. To follow someone’s journey for two years and to know why he was doing it and for me on a personal level feel that connection of his motivation and to have that taken away for selfish reasons that angered me. I wasn’t scheduled for an appearance on the WR Daily…

“A wise man shall never be conquered by a deceitful false prophet; but fools and simple minds shall revere the prophet as they would a deity.” RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo) – 2015 This maybe the hardest piece I’ve ever had to write as a wrestling fan, for 26 years I have loved this business through the good and the bad and I have never walked away from a show more angry or disgusted than I was after Friday’s Smackdown. The Rock Stole Cody’s Moment: Let me make this clear I’m not angry about the idea of Rock vs Reigns, I…

It’s undeniable that Carlito is an entertaining wrestler. His return at Backlash? Spectacular. That being said, after his recent in-ring performances, I do think there should be a slight change to how the WWE is booking him. This article explains how I think he should be transitioning more into an MVP-esc role and how it could potentially elevate some other members of the roster. Recent Carlito Matches Photo Credit: WWE From his two singles matches so far in the WWE, it’s clear that he’s slowed down, and that’s completely okay. The man is a 24-year veteran; it’s bound to happen.…

The hype around TNA is unreal right now, and I’m here for it. TNA is a land full of champions, so it will be interesting to see who loses each belt to whom. Well, that’s what this article is about. This is a rough, tactical prediction as to who will be the wrestler to dethrone each current champion in TNA. I’ll try to only use people on the roster page, but I might throw a swerve in there. While I’d like to believe that I’ll be pretty accurate with my guesses, Scott D’Amore does like to throw the occasional curveball…

Indi Hartwell is a promising talent for WWE and has all the skills to succeed in the business. Since jumping to the main roster from NXT, she hasn’t been on TV much since returning from injury.

The Australian wrestler had a great run on the yellow brand. She also had a long run as NXT Women’s Champion. The 27-year-old was in the group with Johnny Gargano, Austin Theory,…

The news that Jade Cargill was leaving All Elite Wrestling for WWE caused a frenzy. It hit the pro wrestling world hard. Fastlane brought excitement to many people when the former TBS champion appeared. Yet, after a few television appearances, there has not been any talk about her making an in-ring debut. Yet, with the Royal Rumble this Saturday, people expect to see her in the marquee match. Jade Cargill In AEW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk-nHhfXDFY Cargill is a megastar with the potential to do great things in WWE. The 31-year-old made her name in AEW and was a big name in Tony…

It may be hard to believe, but we are now approaching the seventh Women’s Royal Rumble. It’s a match that I have honestly really enjoyed a solid percentage of the time. I have made this article because I think it’s a travesty that they aren’t recognised for how fun they are. Even the worst women’s rumble matches have some great returns sprinkled throughout, which will at least get a kick out of you. Former Winners Photo Credit: WWE I’ll start this off by listing the former winners of the match so far and giving my take on whether it was…
