WWE Starrcade: Was WWE RIGHT In Making It A House Show?

In this video we look at all the social media uproar over WWE Starrcade not being on the WWE Network.

While it may have been short-sighted for WWE to label the event Starrcade given the current generation of fans know it as a WCW pay per view, the history of Starrcade, and Thanksgiving wrestling shows in the Mid-Atlantic area in particular, goes back way before WCW, Jim Crockett Promotions, or even the name “Starrcade” itself.

Matt Hardy: Too Late To Be Broken?

About a year or so ago, the biggest name in the genre outside of Vince McMahon’s company was “Broken” Matt Hardy.

The gimmick which saw him making elaborate videos, creating new catchphrases, using a unique accent, and showcasing various over-the-top skits and situations, captivated much of the fans who usually didn’t watch TNA IMPACT.

Fast forward to now, he’s back with the McMahons in the major leagues but is floundering in the lower midcard. What happened? Can it be fixed … or broken … and will fans even care at this point?

The Battle of San Antonio: WWE vs. Ring of Honor

As the new age of interpromotional “battles” continue between WWE and any company Bullet Club works for, the next battlefield will apparently be in San Antonio, Texas.

Shawn Michaels as special guest referee at San Antonio NXT showRing of Honor has booked a show on November 17th in the city and WWE has also booked an NXT show almost literally down the street on the same night.

Cody, The Young Bucks, and Marty Scurll cut a promo on Ring of Honor television talking about WWE in a negative fashion and even invited the McMahons to come see the show. To counter this, NXT is having San Antonio’s favorite son and WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels as special guest referee for the main event between Drew McIntyre and former Bullet Club member Adam Cole for the NXT Championship.

Now, The Young Bucks have announced that Stephen Amell will be at the Ring of Honor show. Amell was a former guest celebrity who actually wrestled in a match against Cody when he was Goldust, teaming with another WWE defector Neville.

The war continues in San Antonio …

NJPW Power Struggle 2017 Review

Perhaps in one of the most shocking nights of the year for New Japan, the Power Struggle 2017 event which is the last stop before WrestleKingdom, may be the start of an even bigger push for the company in 2018.

Tanahashi vs. IbushiWith a main event featuring the amazing encounter between IWGP IC Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kota Ibushi, the U.S. Title defense of Kenny Omega vs. Trent Barreta, Minoru Suzuki and Toru Yano in a bullrope “death match” for the NEVER Open Championship, and the continuation of the saga between Will Ospreay and Marty Scurll for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, this event had some truly outstanding matches.

Looming over all of this though were the debut and challenges of two wrestlers returning to NJPW. Both Chris Jericho and Jay White made their returns to the company and challenged the secondary champions for title matches at WrestleKingdom 12, lighting the pro wrestling and sports entertainment worlds on fire.

This is our review of a groundbreaking night as we look at NJPW Power Struggle 2017.

We discuss how this might have happened and what this might mean for the pro wrestling world going forward. Is it a big deal? Wasn’t Jericho still under WWE contract? What kind of match will it be?

WWE Releases Summer Rae, Darren Young, and Emma

On Sunday, WWE announced that it was releasing a few performers from its active roster. Included were Summer Rae, Darren Young, and most surprisingly of all Emma.

While Summer Rae isn’t much of a surprise given how limited she was as an in-ring talent and how WWE hasn’t used her as a character in months, the other two are somewhat of a shock. Darren Young was supposed to be part of the company’s initiative to include more LGBT characters on their shows while Emma just recently worked a high profile series of matches against RAW’s newest female star Asuka.

The question is, where is this all going? Will Bullet Club ultimately be hurt by the conflict? Is WWE creating bigger stars out of The Young Bucks, Cody, and Kenny Omega by their cease and desist orders and threats of law suits?

We examine the current feud and where it might possibly be going in the future.
