Photo Credit – The Overtimer Both WWE, and AEW, delivered Triple Threat World Title matches at their biggest annual shows. At Wrestlemania we witnessed a classic between Edge, Roman Reigns, and Daniel Bryan. At Double or Nothing we witnessed another classic between PAC, Kenny Omega, and Orange Cassidy. It’s no secret that WWE is more story based, while AEW is more wrestling based. This would go on to be the biggest difference of these two matches. The Wrestlemania Triple Threat was a storyline focused match. In no way is this a bad thing. The match had everyone buzzing for days…

Photo Credit – Inside Sport It was not so long ago Roman Reigns was looked at by many wrestling fans as a blight on the product. Too heavily featured, given poor dialogue and weak opponents combined to create one of WWE’s weakest top acts since the mid-90s. Yet now, Roman is without a doubt THE top act in WWE with no one near striking distance. How can such a radical shift occur in less than 10 months? The answer is character development. In case you don’t realize by now, professional wrestling is akin to a live stage show. While they…

Photo Credit-AEW and Sportskeeda Lance Archer is in an interesting spot in his AEW career right now. Having just lost a TNT Title match against Miro, you might be wondering what is next for the Murderhawk Monster. Having given this some thought, I believe working AEW’s partnership with Impact might be beneficial for him, for these reasons: Lance Archer needs to regain some credibility as a “monster.” Lance Archer has been gradually shifting away from the monster heel he portrayed in NJPW and the early days of AEW. He has adopted more of a “tweener-verging-on-face,” persona, as has Jake Roberts.…

Photo Credit- WWE The Fiend is the grunge film lovechild of all the traumatic horrors that Bray Wyatt endured throughout his 11 year tenure in WWE. Whether it was the subtle soundbites of the Fiend’s theme being a drowning spiral of Bray Wyatt’s former melody or the statement portrait of a new lamp being made out of the face of Bray Wyatt, this new character acted as a complete nosedive into a fictional wonderland. It utilized the ability for wrestling fans to simultaneously combine a suspension of disbelief and a smart knowledge of backstage politics in order to present a…

photo credit- All Elite Wrestling Jungle Boy has a lot of potential to be a major star, everyone can see that. He has the long, Hollywood like hair, he’s good looking, he’s got the name recognition if they do call him “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry more, which they should. But, one of the biggest myths that gets thrown around about Jungle Boy is that AEW have done a good job in terms of the way they have booked him, because he has not been booked well. Firstly, let’s look at his faction. Jungle Boy and Luchasarus have the potential in…

Photo Credit: Slam Wrestling Have you ever watched a cheesy sitcom with no laugh track? Eerie, right? Sure, technically, the jokes are good. They have fine structure, the word layout is well placed, but something is just…off. A laugh track guides the audience into the proper emotion. Is this an uproarious cackle? A small chuckle? A tender moment? A shocking revelation? A sitcom can be terrific, but a laugh track adds that extra oomph needed to take a show over the top. Wrestling for the last year has been a sitcom without a laugh track. With COVID-19 lockdown’s worldwide forcing…
