Some wrestlers can be successful as both babyfaces and heels, but some are better as one over the other and to me Christian is at his best as a heel. Career: In my opinion, Christian is an absolute legend in this business and should have been inducted into the HOF years ago, but he has never gotten the respect he has deserved. Often viewed as just “a good hand” or “upper mid-card at best”, this stigma has followed him his entire career, especially when he was in WWE. Christian showed the world night after night how hard a worker he…

The best anniversary shows should honor the past while also embracing the future and, in my opinion, this show had the perfect mix of both. When you look at the history of TNA/Impact Wrestling, this has been a promotion that everyone from fans and “experts” all said they won’t last, but 20 years later they are still alive and kicking. No promotion made more bizarre booking decisions, change over in rosters, TV network cancellations, backstage turmoil and ownership changes, but despite all this has survived. It is a promotion that I think is often overlooked but is producing some of the…

Mickie James opens about the importance of females behind the ring. As a guest on the “Battleground Podcast” this week, Mickie talks about agents behind the matches. James compared having female and male agents, also sharing her thoughts on Tasha Steelz. In comparing females and males as agents, Mickie said.  “My trainers were always men because there weren’t female trainers. There weren’t any female agents. There weren’t really women’s voices in those decision making rooms. So even what we were seeing on television was, and I don’t mean this in a bad way, but it was a male’s perspective of…

What I believe Austin meant by that is typically the world champion is the wrestler that shows strong drive, motivation and dedication to the business and your craft. You are willing to put in the time and the effort and be the leader of the…
