Photo Credit – ProWrestlingRecord.com Well to say WWE is seriously firing people would be an understatement but this has just been insane. This is now the third round of releases since WM and there are even rumors this isn’t even the final cuts of 2021. WWE has been releasing talent after WM for years but not like this and with them going on the road in a few weeks it leaves us wondering who will be left to perform and the 2K people must be having panic attacks because the latest WWE game is scheduled to come out presumably in…

Photo Credit – Cagesideseats.com Now my first exposure to Tony Nese was in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic in 2016 and I was immediately impressed with his talent and athleticism. Seeing him in the CWC, led me to check out Evolve and I got to see him outside the WWE bubble and I became even more impressed with his talents. Nese was someone that I feel could have a great match with pretty much anyone and that is a very rare trait to have in the wrestling business. It is often said that HBK could have a 5-Star match with a…

Photo Credit – Givemesport.com Let me start by saying when I say WWE, I’m referring to the main roster, Raw and Smackdown. NXT and NXT UK are doing things correctly and there is a reason that every Takeover event is MUST SEE. What the NXTs do better than the main roster is they give the audience compelling storylines and rivalries that make sense going into the event and matches live up to and often times exceed the hype. That’s what fans want…we know the matches are predetermined but we want a story that will entertain us and talent that can…

10. John Cena Photo Credit – Sportskeeda Let’s start with a big one. Since it was announced that Summerslam would be held in front of a live crowd this year, it been anticipated that WWE has been angling for the return of a big name superstar, and the name that has been cropping up most often is none other than John Cena. We haven’t seen Big Match John on WWE TV since The Fiend literally made him disappear in 2020. Rumours are that Cena is keen to return for a big time match, and would likely face Roman Reigns for…

The Diamond Mine group also looks to have a spokesman in the shape of Malcolm Bivens, who has been working with Tyler Rust in NXT for quite some time now, despite neither being seen on television recently. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X59WyzyxbCM&t=84s WWE dismissed 14 wrestlers on Friday, including two who were supposed to be part of the Diamond Mine team. Diamond Mine had been prepared months in advance, according to Fightful Select…

On Smackdown last night, 2 apparent challengers for the Universal Championship emerged in Seth Rollins & Edge. While there’s no telling if any of them will defeat Roman Reigns, it certainly gives WWE two more options; shall they decide to pull the trigger. 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…

Credit Photos: WWE On August 30, 1994, the wrestling world and its fans would change forever. Owner and founder of ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) then known as Eastern Championship Wrestling, Tod Gordon, along with head booker, Paul Heyman, would orchestrate the most controversial act of defiance in history. ECW at the time was associated with the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), a promotion that had dwindled in relevancy since Ted Turner had purchased the Jim Crocket Promotions and eventually separated from the NWA and created World Championship Wrestling (WCW) into his own brand.  Gordon and Heyman felt at the time, that…

This week in 205 Live we said goodbye to two of 205 Live’s most prominent figures in the last couple of months- August Grey and Ariya Daivari. The two faced Grayson Waller and Ikemen Jiro respectively. Before getting into this week’s review, I’d like to take just a minute to thank Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, Samir&Sunil Singh, Chase Parker, Matt Martel, August Grey and Curt Stallion for all that they did in 205 Live. Ever since I started reviewing 205 Live they were all a key part of the brand and it is hard to imagine the brand without them.…

Photo Credit- WWE, AEW This past weekend WWE had its “Hell In A Cell” PPV which is known as one of the most brutal matches in history but instead, it turned into throwaway matches where there was no purpose within the story that was being told. If these types of matches will be conducted for the sake of earning money without much meaning then the best decision is to not utilize them. Gimmick matches should be done to enhance a rivalry and bring meaning to the programs taking place, this will make the matches have more depth. When we look…
