Ready To Ramble: Evolution and The Shield


Evolution

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to another edition of Ready to Ramble. I tend to write about a few different topics and items that have happened in WWE recently, but this time I’m keeping it to two specific factions; Evolution and The Shield. (more…)

Great Matches: Trish Stratus Vs Lita


There has been something missing from WWE for quite a while now: focus on the divas. What I mean by that is there has not been a genuine focus of letting the divas have range; aside from Emma being a klutz and AJ being the overconfident champion nobody really has a character, and no, I don’t think Total Divas is helping at all. Hopefully with Paige being moved up to the main roster, this will change and we will finally see better emphasis on characters and in ring action than we have in a long time. But for now, let’s take a look at a time when divas not only had great characters, but also had great enough ring work and chemistry to main event Raw. Ladies and Gentleman, Trish Stratus vs. Lita!

Welcome To The New Age


WrestleMania 30 is behind us, so is the always interesting Monday Night RAW after WrestleMania. What can we look forward to after what can only be described as a rollercoaster of a week in the world of WWE and professional wrestling in general?

That Was A Real Paige-Turner


Last night’s episode of Raw was one of my all-time favorites for many reasons. There were many great moments put into the three-hour show. One of those moments was witnessing Paige debuting on the main roster and winning the WWE Divas Championship. (more…)

Bring Back The Brand Extension!


 

wweshows

Remember the days when “Raw” and “Smackdown!” were treated as separate brands altogether?  I know it’s been a while but that was actually the case for a while.  The idea to do it actually stemmed from WCW.  During the height of the “Monday Night Wars,” Eric Bischoff attempted to turn WCW into two brands:  WCW and NWO.  He hatwodifferent shows to write content for so this seemed the perfect solution.  Make each of this two main shows a separate brand.  He started by branding a PPV “NWO Souled Out” to test the waters.  It didn’t take off at all but Vince was clearly watching as he took the concept for WWE.  “Smackdown!” – a show originally intended as a Divas-only show, was made a separate brand entirely from “Raw.

The Positives of A Returning Brand Extension


This article started off as a question I had about the constantly growing roster in WWE, but then the more I thought about it, the more problems I started to notice in WWE. When WWE decided to end the brand extension it was due to wanting content to flow well between programs. That is completely understandable, but by doing this a lot more problems have produced. Some are easily fixed, and others would only be fixed with a brand extension.

Is the Yes! Movement a good thing?

Is the Yes! Movement a good thing?

Are fans too aware of what is going on with wrestling? Do we have too much access? The last few years have shown that wrestling fans think they are part of the show instead of just watching the show. Some of this is orchestrated by the WWE, but not all of it.

FINALLY A Road To Wrestlemania


After seeing this Monday’s Raw, a few things were made clear to me. Firstly, WWE has finally realized the potential of their mid-card talent by giving them that Andre the Giant 30-man Battle Royale at Wrestlemania 30. Secondly, the Daniel Bryan push is officially on. (more…)

Why Investing In Talent Is Vital For WWE


Before and after: Husky Harris becomes Bray Wyatt

Is 2013 a good time to be a WWE fan? There’s no denying that there’s a different feel about wrestling’s number one promotion these days. Thanks to some subtle changes in how WWE develops and nurtures talent, the product is arguably in the best shape it has been for a long time. With this in mind, consider the following three points as strong signs of progress… (more…)

Why It’s About Time For Antonio Cesaro


When a WWE Superstar receives a standing ovation from his peers, this form of recognition can spur him on to achieve bigger and better things. Following a Raw match on the July 22 edition of Raw, Triple H was said to have warmly praised one such wrestler behind the arena curtain. CM Punk was also on his feet among the applauding well wishers. You would be forgiven for thinking that a certain bearded performer with red-hot momentum was basking in the limelight. However, the man deserving the plaudits was in fact Antonio Cesaro. Given the stop-start booking of the Swiss Superstar, could this now be his time to shine? (more…)

Take One Prince Of Queens And Add A Dash Of TV.

I think we can all agree that one of the biggest pet peeves as a wrestling fan is when we see a talented individual be wasted in a jobber role. (more…)

Missing In Action: Ted DiBiase Jr.


TDJ

Years back, there was a young man down in Florida Championship Wrestling (now NXT) who had a lot of buzz. The buzz was not just generated from his name and family history, but also how he moved in the ring and talked. Word was he was able to command attention like no other and was on track to set the main roster of WWE on fire! (more…)

Why Emotion Matters In World Wrestling Entertainment


Ziggler vs Del Rio, Payback 2013

What do you enjoy about watching WWE? For me, it’s the compelling combination of storyline and athleticism. As much as wrestling purists may baulk at the soap-opera aspect, it’s vital that angles add spice to the matches themselves. Put simply we need the ‘E’ in WWE: Entertainment. What I would like to examine here is the role that emotion plays in creating entertainment. (more…)
