What a week this has been. Elimination Chamber, the WWE Network, Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker returned, and we are over a month away from WrestleMania! Even though several things could go under some of the categories, I’m going to try and stick to one. (more…)
“Mr. McMahon” Was a great Heel.
I remember the good old days, a million years ago in the 80′s, when I was a kid watching the WWF on Saturday mornings. The characters were pretty straight forward back then, I knew who to boo and I knew who to cheer based on their actions in the ring, or how they cut their promos. These days? Not so much.
This week was filled with hype for Elimination Chamber and the WWE Network. I’m not sure what it is, but it doesn’t feel like WrestleMania season yet, and I’m hoping that with these two big events coming up, plus the return of Hulk Hogan, that I will get that feeling that’s been lacking. Now it’s time to break down the action of the last week in The Five-Count! (more…)
It’s obvious that in these past weeks there has been major heat towards The Shield, and the “demise” of the group. But if they do in fact go their own ways, or maybe just have a storyline of their own within the group, how would you like to see it play out?
With only four months away from the biggest show of the year the one thing that’s on everybody’s mind (including Vince McMahon’s) is what matches will be featured on the grandest stage of them all. Well I’ve given it a lot of thought and I can confidently say that I’ve come up with the best lineup possible with the current roster, part-timers, and the imminent signing of Goldberg. Now before I start there are two things I feel the need to point out, first is that this ISN’T A DREAM CARD! I was originally going to title this article “Dream WrestleMania 30 Match Card” but I realized every match I’m including are matches that the WWE COULD and SHOULD use for WrestleMania. (more…)
Paul Heyman is on the mic to start us out this week. Paul says it’s time for him to start scouting for a new Paul Heyman Guy. Heyman goes on to see he is blown away by everything he has seen in NXT. Somewhere in the locker room is the next Paul Heyman Guy, the next Paul Heyman, or the next Brock Lesnar. (more…)
The show starts with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassidy cutting a promo. As a team, they are undefeated. One thing they are not… is S-A-W-F-T. Saaaawwft! What Enzo sees is a dance floor. Colin starts to sing as Tons of Funk dances their way to the ring. Clay and Sweet T dance in the ring a little bit. Amore and Cassidy start to leave, but Mason Ryan’s music hits. Tons of Funk destroy Enzo and Colin. Ryan hits his finisher on Amore. Mason starts to leave the ring, but they get him to stay and dance. I found it hilarious. (more…)
Welcome to another edition of Ready to Ramble where I ramble on about random stories and happenings in the world of the WWE. (more…)
The Shield has faced many teams since their debut in November. Most of the teams have featured top stars, but the team Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns will be taking on next haven’t been in the top of the card. The Uso’s won a triple threat number one contenders match on Raw by defeating Tons of Funk and Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre of 3MB. The twin brothers are at the peak of their careers right now, but to many fans, it seems obvious The Shield will defeat them. While many are disappointed by that fact, I’m going to lighten things up by naming several big names/teams that should be challenging for the tag team gold. (more…)
If you missed Payback or haven’t been on the internet until now, you may have missed the announcement that was made last night
of the definite return of Mr. Monday Night, Rob Van Dam.
WWE aired a video package hyping his return which looks to be at next months Money In The Bank PPV. The Chicago crowd
was so into this even breaking out into “RVD” chants and I was sitting at home chanting along with them. (more…)
In wrestling, the gladiatorial stage is set to be ignited with the light, sound and spectacle of a rock concert. An effective entrance facilitates the crowd’s ability to roar with delight for their heroes or vent frustration at a despised heel. In my first ever article for WWENews.net, I felt it would be fitting to explore the role of the WWE entrance with reference to a few examples. (more…)
