Time for Roman to Reign

Time for Roman to Reign

I feel sorry for Roman Reigns. I'm sure there will be very few that agree with me, but I honestly do feel for the guy. He regularly gets the biggest heel reactions when his music hits, but he's supposed to be the 'superhero' babyface. He's clearly trying his best to play the role of the character he's been given and he has undoubtedly improved in the ring. I'd say he's gone from being a limited to a solid worker in …

Chris Jericho is on the list

"You know what happens when you leave an indelible mark upon the wrestling industry?" "Huh? When you make your mark in history, do you know what happens? Do you?" "I'll tell you what happens when do that, you make...... THE LIST!" That is the list of greats, of legends and undoubtedly one day, the list of Hall of Famers. That is the list that the innovator of 'The List of Jericho', Chris Jericho, is on and deservedly so. Jericho's recent …
A Cesaro conundrum for WWE

A Cesaro conundrum for WWE

It was quite some time ago that I said I didn't like the Cesaro 'James Bond' entrance; I just didn't get where it came from and what the point of it was. I still don't get where walking out to a James Bond graphic and then ripping off his suit like a stripper really sits with his character or in-ring work. He's an incredible in-ring talent and does possess a certain charisma, but has been hampered by his limitations on …
WWE Hell In A Cell Review

WWE Hell In A Cell Review

As expected, the night kicked off with the first cell match of the so-called ‘triple main event’ as Roman Reigns defended the US Title against Rusev. This has been a storyline that I’ve not been enamoured with, simply because I felt like I watched them have a very similar confrontation every week. Both guys should have bright futures, but this has not worked as well I’d hoped in term of a programme and after what was a solid and physical …
WWE Hell In A Cell Preview

WWE Hell In A Cell Preview

It'll be all eyes on Boston this Sunday as WWE brings the Raw pay per view Hell In A Cell to town. It's being billed as a triple main event show, but in reality there are two main events here and the most significant of them is the Women's title match between the champion and home town hero Sasha Banks and challenger, Charlotte. Make no mistake, the Women's championship being billed as a main event match at a WWE pay …
WWE No Mercy Review

WWE No Mercy Review

Unusually, No Mercy began with the main event. Hopefully, this was purely because of the presidential debate and not a new format as the old school in me insists that the main event should close the show. Anyhow, we got straight to the WWE title match between AJ Styles, John Cena and Dean Ambrose… well, after a five-minute vignette as Styles was making his entrance… talk about taking you out of the moment, another reason why your biggest match should …
WWE's Most Legendary Wrestlers

WWE's Most Legendary Wrestlers

Quantifying the accomplishments of pro wrestlers is a difficult task and can lead to endless debate. Are winning championships as important as headlining events? Or is it about charisma, longevity, or if you helped increase the sport’s popularity? But no matter who you think the best ever are or who you credit the WWE’s popularity to, it’s clear that wrestling isn’t going away anytime soon. Online sportsbooks now even offer betting lines for its major PPVs, and for those that …
WWE No Mercy Preview

WWE No Mercy Preview

I've been pleasantly surprised by Smackdown recently and whilst I still have reservations over some of the camera angles and zooms for how it makes the show look smaller than it is, the creative content and flow of the show has been good. That leads nicely onto this Sunday's PPV - No Mercy. I've just spoken positively about Smackdown, so let's get the big negative out of the way first. Bray Wyatt: the eater of worlds? More like the eater …
