The biggest question in all of professional wrestling right now is not IF The Hardy Boyz will be returning to the WWE, but WHEN.
It is the most exciting time of the year for wrestling fans. WrestleMania typically marks the “season finale” for the year that was in WWE. There are always many twists and turns on the road to WrestleMania and this year is no different. Friendships tossed aside, disrespect for authority, injuries, title changes, and so much more has made up this crazy journey, and it is all about to come to an end.
Roman Reigns is a curiosity in today’s WWE. He has constantly (and we do mean constantly) been shoved down fan’s throats as “The Guy.” Actually, he literally tried to use that as his catch phrase for a while, before pivoting over to the “it’s my yard” schitck. Despite various ringside commentators pushing the idea that the fans are behind Reigns, anyone with a pulse and a working set of ears can hear that he is routinely booed at live events and on television.
Records in pro wrestling are an interesting thing. First of all, most of them are exaggerated (or made up completely) in order to build hype and promote individuals. But if the record keepers at WrestlingData.com are correct, The Undertaker could reach another milestone at WrestleMania 33 that would be hard to top.
Slowly but surely, the WWE continues to evolve. Of course, that is going to happen over time regardless of who’s in charge, but today’s WWE is definitely being shaped by one man more than anyone else — Triple H.
As far as we know, CM Punk is finished with the world of professional wrestling. He walked away from the WWE in controversial fashion, hasn’t had many nice things to say about his former employer since, and embarked on a surprise journey into the world of MMA, getting absolutely dominated by Mickey Gall in his first (and so far only) professional UFC bout.
Have you ever been watching a Five Star match on PPV and thought to yourself, “Man, I wish I could get a better view of this — like, maybe from inside the ring!” Well, good news. The WWE is working on using virtual reality technology to give fans an additional element of being immersed in the show.
It’s Royal Rumble season, folks, which means one thing – it’s time to start looking at all those crazy stats from the storied 30 year history of the January classic.
Ryback certainly has been vocal since his WWE contract expired earlier this year, and his podcast, Conversations With The Big Guy, have quickly evolved into a regular forum for Ryback to expound upon how WWE prevented him from becoming the biggest star in the company, as well as any other grudges he might have. This week, John Cena has become the target of his ire, as the Big Guy seems to feel that John Cena has spent his career standing in the path of every single wrestler trying to make it to the top in WWE, especially Ryback.
Christmas is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but you wouldn’t know it from the world of professional wrestling. Over the years, wrestlers and wrestling organizations have tried to exploit the holiday season in a myriad of ways, from Christmas-themed gimmick matches, to wrestlers dressing up in various attempts at playing Santa, to actual Christmas movies, and generally, they all end up being cheesy at best, and actually fairly terrible at worst. We’ve looked through the archives, and come up with a bunch of examples of when it seemed like the wrestling industry was trying to guarantee that nobody had a Merry Christmas.
