The Current WWE Championships: How Much Do They Matter?
When The Rock debuted a brand new WWE Championship belt on Monday Night RAW two weeks ago, a very vocal Internet Wrestling Community took to their favorite media outlet to let the world know whether they loved the new design or hated it. When I saw the new design, it made me ask a totally different question…
Who cares? (more…)
Where Have All the Good Heels Gone?
I’ve been a wrestling fan since I was a kid. I remember being introduced to it almost by accident. Some coffee manufacturer (Folgers or some other beverage company, I can’t recall specifically) put these little “holographic” trading cards in their products as a promotion with the WWF Survivor Series. This was in like 1992-93ish, so the big stars on the cards were of course Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, and Yokozuna.
However, there were 2 cards specifically that caught my attention as a 7 year old. One had the picture of what looked like a walking dead man in gray gloves; the other was a man wearing a LOT of jewelry and smirking like he was the best thing goin’. They both got me into wrestling…and they both were heels.
Oh You Didn’t Know? Tag Teams Better Call Somebody…
As I watch the current WWE product, I can’t help but to get discouraged about a few things. The growing insignificance of mid-card titles and storylines (i.e. the IC and US titles), heels NEVER seeming to get the clean win, and the over-abundance of comedic “filler” segments are a few of my issues, but NONE of these bother me as much as the persistent misuse of the tag team division.
In this life, opinions are a dime a dozen. Every tangible thing that exists BEGS for an opinion, whether it’s something you eat, watch, listen to, etc. Knowing that you will have an opinion on all these things, there is a question that at some point you must answer…
…do you share that opinion…or do you keep quiet?
Yo…no no no…
