It’s Royal Rumble Day! Which means one thing. The Road To Wrestlemania is officially on its way. The Rumble is without a doubt one of the most exciting events in wrestling. Anything can happen in the Rumble matches and this year, it is tough to pick who will win it. But I’ve had a go at it and here are my picks to win the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble match. Starting from least likely to most likely.  10. Bianca Belair  The EST is no stranger to winning the Royal Rumble, in 2021 Bianca outlasted 29 other women to punch…

The current AEW International Champion has had a plethora of great matches during his time with the company, but which are the best? This is what I plan to narrow down with this article. I have seen a solid amount of OC’s catalogue, so I think that, in good faith, I’m qualified to do such a ranking. While some wrestling fans find Cassidy insufferable, I think he’s incredible, so it was a joy putting this together. I hope you enjoy it. 10.

Many consider WrestleMania III to be one of the most significant events in wrestling history, but why is that? Well, I am going to run down the five main factors that really make this PPV as monumental as it is. The sheer number of records that this show would break would be a catalyst for years to come, so without further ado, let’s get into it. 5. Record-Setting Pay-Per-View Buy Rates Photo Credit: WWE With buy-rates of around 400,000 (which grossed them an estimated $10.3 million), it was record-setting for the time. For an event in 1987, those numbers are…

When you consider all the matches that take place in promotions all over the world and try to whittle that list down to just twenty-five matches that is a daunting task. However, I have put together the twenty-five must see matches of 2023. This is my third annual best of the year list; my personal best matches of the month lists has led up to these 25 best matches of the year list. It was a lot of fun for me to put together the best matches of the month lists. Sometimes matches didn’t happen that exact month when I finally…

Anthony’s Best of the Best It is now time for December 2023 best matches of the month list. Please keep in mind these are just my opinion of the best matches I saw this month and is not a definitive list and is not the official Wrestling Republic ratings and rankings. I’m sure there are matches that I may have missed but there are only so many hours in a day and only so much wrestling I can watch. So, please feel free to suggest matches in the comments, as it is possible, I haven’t seen them or maybe they…

While it’s been a little over six months since the 2023 WWE draft, I think it would be good to take a step back and analyse who has benefited the most from their main roster run so far. This will be based on who has had the best booking, crowd reactions, and matches. There are thirteen different NXT call-ups to go through here, so I say we just go right into it! 13. Odyssey Jones You had to see this coming. There are quite a few flops on this list, but this one is by far the worst. More than…

It is now time for November 2023 best matches of the month list. Please keep in mind these are just my opinion of the best matches I saw this month and is not a definitive list and is not the official Wrestling Republic ratings and rankings. I’m sure there are matches that I may have missed but there are only so many hours in a day and only so much wrestling I can watch.

Christian Cage and TNA are, respectably, both very popular topics in the wrestling industry currently. I thought that it would only be right to rank some of the best matches from Christian’s storied run in the company. I’m under the belief that this was Christian’s greatest ever run in wrestling, as he took it as an opportunity to re-invent himself and prove to be a main event player. Captain Charisma also established himself as a legend there and ended up cementing a TNA Hall of Fame-worthy legacy by the time he left. 10. Turning Point 2005: Christian Cage vs. Monty…

With Impact Wrestling reverting back to its Total Nonstop Action name, there is now a lot of buzz surrounding the company. TNA may truly be on an upward trajectory, with the company setting loads of ambitious sights for the coming year. Not only do they have the potential to further skyrocket in popularity, but they also have the potential to lose their spot at number three to the NWA (who got a great TV deal with the CW), so it’s important that they make the right decisions leading into this new era. While they have set sights on increasing venue…

Widely regarded as one of the all-time greats, Jericho truly has a storied career in wrestling. I thought I’d take some time to list who I believe are Y2J’s greatest rivals. With a catalogue that spans a number of wrestling companies, there were a lot of choices for this list, so please, if you think I’ve missed someone vital, point it out in the comments! I will be judging his greatest rivals in many different categories: Match quality Match quantity Promos and segments during the rivalry How it ended How high-profile the rivalry was How either man came away from…
