The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

Proud To Be A Wrestling Fan AKA Mark

AJ Styles On Wrestling Marks

I ran across this meme of professional wrestler A.J. Styles talking about “marks”. “People use the word “mark” as some sort of disparaging term. It’s not. We, as wrestling fans, are all marks. If you’ve ever bought a ticket to  show, you’re a mark. If you’ve ever cheered or booed someone, you’re a mark. Hell, I’m a mark. I am a professional wrestling mark. Being a mark isn’t bad. It should be a term of … Continue reading

The Problem With #RAWlternative

RAWlternative

The WWE’s Royal Rumble will be held this Sunday, January 25th. That means we’re officially on the Road To WrestlMania 31 and the blog here tends to take on a professional wrestling tone for a couple of months. Many fans have been less than happy (for good reason) with the product that the WWE has been producing in recent months. Some have even created an alternative to RAW known as #RAWlternative. And even though they’ve … Continue reading

What’s Next For Aces & Eights – Could It Be Bully Ray?

The Aces & Eights In The Ring

I hate the fact that I’m going to devote another post to a wrestling angle that I think is complete crap, but I once again finding myself sitting down to write about TNA’s Aces & Eights.  I was listening to my favorite wrestling podcast on my way to work this morning (The FTW Podcast… if you don’t listen to them you should definitely check them out… you’ll be glad you did) and they were having … Continue reading

The Debacle That Is TNA’s Aces & Eights Angle

Aces & Eights From TNA Impact Wrestling

I try really hard not to be one of those wrestling fans who talks about the “good old days” and does nothing but bitch about the current product. After all, if I don’t like the current product then I should just turn it off and stop bitching about it.  That said, every once in a while an angle or character comes along that just pisses me off so bad that I can’t keep my mouth … Continue reading

AJ Lee – Looking For Her Nature Boy?

AJ Lee & Ric Flair

WrestleMania 29 tickets are on sale which I know based on the 3 different emails I’ve received from the WWE today.  And even though I won’t be going to the show, opting instead for a return trip with the Beeramid, what these emails did do is get me in a wrestling mind frame… time for a prediction. One of the major story lines in WWE these days is the John Cena / AJ Lee “romance”.  If … Continue reading

My Bound For Glory Picks

Bound For Glory

I just got done watching Thursday night’s Impact Wrestling.  One of my favorite wrestling podcasts/websites, The FTW Podcast always gives their picks for upcoming PPVs.  As you know, TNA is having their flagship PPV this weekend called Bound For Glory.  If you’re not familiar with TNA or this particular PPV it’s the most important/biggest PPV for this organization (similar to the way WrestleMania is for the WWE but not nearly as well known). In any … Continue reading

Ways To Improve Pro Wrestling

Hulk Hogan

I’ve had the idea for this post for quite a while now and I’m finally getting around to actually writing it.  I’m not quite sure where its headed, but I’m guessing it’s going to be a bit of a rant.  For those readers that aren’t in the mood to listen to me bitch about what’s wrong with the wrestling feel free to move along. Still with me?  OK… here goes.  In no particular order. Mandatory … Continue reading

TNA Recycling Talent From The Old Days

TNA Logo

A couple of weeks back I tuned in to a Monday night show of TNA Wrestling and was pleasantly surprised with the show that they put on (from a wrestling perspective).  I was however kind of shocked when I looked at the roster to see just how many old WWE and WCW guys were there.  I suppose in retrospect this really should surprise me as there simply aren’t that many big time wrestling promotions available … Continue reading

Bret & Vince One More Time?

Vince McMahon

So Vince McMahon went on Monday Night Raw the other night and stated that Bret Hart would never be seen in the WWE again.  This of course means that we will DEFINITELY see Bret Hart in the WWE again and I’m thinking that will happen very soon.  Sounds to me like they’re setting up a Bret vs. Vince WrestleMania match for WrestleMania XXVI (75 days from today!!!) I have to say that I’ll be incredibly … Continue reading
