In or Out

Over the last 24 hours Brock Lesnar has been all over the dirt sheets, talked about by all the fans of wrestling & he was trending on twitter. The reason why all this talk with Brock is happening is because he retired from UFC lat night after he main Event so if you saw th mstch you witnessed history seing the main event. After the match he grab the mic and in a tearful goodby brock thanked Dana White, the fans, & the UFC as a whole and that yesterday would be the last time you see him in the octagon. Now all the members of the Internet Wrestling community are wondering if this will lead to a WWE return in 2012. I actually hope this does mean he wil be back next year with WWE on a short term deal to see how he is then go from their but also I would bring him in to fight taker at mania once then see were we are at then. But also Dana White said that even though Brock retired he can't join restoring yet cause he is still under a UFC contract. He therebye cannot join WWE unle…

Year end Awards

With the year coming to an end I am going to be doing Year end awards from now until Jan 31 so at that point I will total the votes and publish it on the first day of Feburary. Since I don't think people will be nonminate people I will pick people from appropriate promotions throughout the world. The awards that I will be giving out are all the same awards that the Pro Wrestling Illustraded give out every year. And some others will be original awards that I thought of myself also worse comes to worse I will push back the original date. Some of the awards will be Wrestler, Tag team, Match, Stable, Manager, & Promtion of the year. This is the special time of year cause all of the other wrestling sites are doing it so I figure even though I may technically not be a real site I am still a wrestling one. All the polls will be up for at least a few days allowing appeal time for voting and knowing when voting ends for all the awards which I will try to end it by Feburary 1 but I don&…

Great Matches Not Enough

I am well aware of the lack of posts I have been doing but i will try and change as it has been partly my fault that I haven't been posting. But now I am starting with this over the past couple of weeks I have seen numerous great matches from the major companies and i would like to talk about them. First Edwards vs Richards 3 which in my opinion may have had it's moments when their was doubt about reality but still it was a great match. I also think against popular belief I am happy Davey won because title changes are happening a little to often in new York it is good a change didn't happen. Another great match was Ryder vs Ziggler it kicked off the ppv with a bang. These guys are two of the top young performers in WWE today and should be getting props for their match instead of getting blamed for the bad ratings. These two have been the hottest thing on RAW for months now cause it is something new a feud over a mid card title is something we haven't seen in years from…

Shawn Michaels Heartbreak & Triumph

Though the book is from a couple of years ago it is still a great read for any fan of Shawn Michaels career in and out of the ring. During the story he starts out talking about growing up with his dad in the military and the teasing, and fighting in school from having the last name of hickenbottom. The first time he talks about wrestling is when he is in middle school and prior to a move he says he was watching the local company and got hooked. Then we jump to his first meeting with Jose Lothario and the training that followed after the training is complete he makes mention to the impact Jose has had on him. Then he moves towards his first landmark the first time he gets in the ring in mid-south and how the guys in the locker room treated him. He also says on mmore then one occasion about how protected the business was then as to how unprotected it is now. After his time in UWF was up he moved on to CSW where he would meet his first friend in the business and future partner Marty Jann…

Going Going Hurt

Just reported by Wzronline former WWE champion Randy Orton is injured they didn't disclose the injury at this point but the word going around is Orton could miss up to 6 months of action. This is a blessing as it is time for WWE to get faith in new faces cause Orton & Cena will not be here forever. Its about time they start getting new faces in the world title picture to stay not just for a specific time period. A couple of people who deserve this chance are Swagger, Bryan, Ziggler, Christian, Barrett, & others who aren't getting the chance they deserve. Now they just have to make sure they get completely behinde Orton's replacement from either shoe it shouldn't matter cause this could either go great or be a flop and I hope that it works cause then maybe they will give cena time off if they can get someone built up big enough. I doubt they will cause there is a reason why he is on smackdown and cena isn't just saying. Which that is good to have cause for t…

PPV Predictions

Final Battle

Tomasso Cimapa vs Tj Perkins
This is Rave's return to ROH and everyone will be happy to see him back and i think he will be tough test for tomasso this time to stay unbeaten in ROH but nothing against perkins but I think the dominant male will continue to domniant in ROH
Michael Elgin vs Tj Perkins
This will be a good match as every time Elgin goes out it seems he gets better and better in the ring that is why with the roll he has been on I am going with him in this match
Roderick Strong vs ???
No way to know who it might be or how good the match will be until the match I will wager a guess and say that Nigel will make his return tonight to the ring in which case Nigel will win Tag team Gauntlet
This will be a great match and I see future shock going after the winner of the briscoes vs world's greatest
Steve Corino vs Kevin Steen (Jimmy Jacobs) Special Ref
This will be a fight if steen wins he is back in Ring of Honor I am very much looking forward to it …

PPV Predictions

TLC
(c)Cody Rhodes vs Booker, T  this will be a good match cause its suppose to be the match that puts cody over the top in that case and the fact that i know Booker isnt coming back full time to wrestling i am going to go with Rhodes winning the match tonight Wade Barrett vs Randy Orton another good match and possibly the ending of the feud as well so since it doesnt invovled orton getting pinned i am going with Barrett getting the win over orton tonight (c)Dolph Ziggler vs Zack Ryder this has been a great feud and it has elevated both guys to higher staus then they once had which i love seeing cause both these guys are much better then they were first thought to be. I am a bro and i would love to see Zack get the belt tonight but i dont think he will i just have this funny feeling that they will be having another match at the Rumble and Zack will win then Kevin Nash vs Triple H out of all the matches tonight i think this has all the makings of being the worst match on the card because …

Rebuilt or Just the Same

4 years ago the NWA was back to national tv and being rebuilt by TNA but then in June of 2007 TNA & NWA spilt and the NWA titles began to fall in prestige and awareness. Over the last couple of years people like Colt Cabana, Adam Pearce, Jimmy Rave, Bull Buchanon, Dark City Fight Club, & Rasche Brown & Keith Walker. They one thing in common they are all trying to preserve the relevance of the NWA by defending their titles in great matches & as often as needed. Now I dont think the NWA will ever be where it once was leading the charge over pro wrestling. But do you think they are going in the right direction with Pearce leading the charge or should they have someone new lead them into the next generation. Well fans you have one last opportunity for this to happen because RPW (Rampage Pro-Wrestling) are having a show where Adam Pearce is defending the NWA title in a 60 minute 2 out of 3 falls match vs young star Kyle Matthews. Also at another indy show before the year is…

This day in Wrestling History

Today is a day that is remembered in the minds of all the CZW fans because this day 3 years ago was the 10 anniversary of there biggest ppv CAGE OF DEATH. The show featured many people that are still apart of CZW today but are different roles now. Some of the guys are: Ryan Mcrbride, Egotistico Fantastico, Sabian, Adam Cole, Ruckus, Tyler Veritas, Alex Colon, Joe Gacy, Younger, Gulack, Moore, & others. This was a big show because this was the last time then owner of the company John Zandig participated at this show. Its a big deal because he was their for the first one and he won at his last one and he is yet to compete at another Cage of Death to this day. The match that Zandig won was a 6 way Cage of Death & like i said it was special cause it became he is last one. The match also included Brain Damage, Devon Moore, Danny Havoc, Sami Callihan, & Drake Younger. This was also the last time Brain Damage would compete at COD for 2 years coming back in 2010 in the main event …

Post PPV Thoughts

Last night TNA had their last ppv of the year and it was as bad as the last couple some matches we better then others & some were worse. Out of the 8 matches I got 2 matches wrong the first one was Daniels vs RVD & the other was Angle vs Storm. Out of all the matches I just want to discuss 3 first one is the X-Division title match Kash vs Aries it was real good match because they gave it the time it deserved. No matter who is in the match in order to get the full effect of just how good some the stars are you got to give them the time to show it. Great Job TNA with this action its a start now they just need to keep it going in the right direction. Next was Angle vs Storm this match next to the main event was the longest match & that one thing that TNA knows how to do and thats when they find a guy who has it they push him right not like WWE. Pushing him right means giving him credible wins against the top guys on the roster which is exactlly what Storm got last night. I ap…

Scouting Report

Shane Hollister

good on mic
great in ring

Best Possible Feuds: Bourne, Bryan, Richards, Styles, Yoshino

Hollister still young in his career only 24 years old from Davenport, Iowa. He had a long standing rivalry with fellow hometowner Tyler Black now known as Seth Rollins. For the most part Shane competes for AAW which all of it shows in Chicago as it isnt that big of a company. Shane is a former AAW Tag Team Champion with Bryce Benjamin & a former Heritage Champion which is like their TV title. But is the title that when most people win it the World title is on their horizon. That didnt happen for Hollister he lost it to Mason Beck then a losing streak cost him any opportunity to expand that far.
To my knowledge Shane was never a heel until 11/26/11 when he attacked Gregory Iron the handicapped hero. While Iron was on his way to the ring Hollister brian bustered him on the floor offically turning heel. I think this is good for Hollister it given him an opportunity to grow and be…

PPV Predictions

Final Resolution
Christopher Daniels vs Rob Van Dam this has been a very interesting feud cause its two veterans feuding with each other for the first time. That makes the matches new & fresh but the feud will be ending soon cause their is only so much they can do together. Even though i guessed it wrong last i am still going with Daniels again tonight (c) Austin Aries vs Kid Kash this has all the makings of a good match it just has to get the time to be a good one if it doesnt then it will be just like all the other matches. Even though i can see Kid Kash winning the match I dont think he will because i think it's to soon to take the belt off of Austin so I am going with Aries to win (c) Robbie E vs Eric Young this will be nothing more then just an average match even though both EY & Rob have more in ring skill then TNA management make them out to have. Even though it doesnt really make a difference who wins I am going with Robbie E as the victor (c) Gail Kim vs Mickie Ja…

TNA Wrestling: Impact is Near

I know all the blogs I have written about TNA for the most part bash the company and bring to light what i think is wrong with the company. Which their are alot of things wrong with the company and much to the dismay of baiscally every TNA writer including Dixie Carter & Hulk Hogan we fans dont know what we are talking about. Well if thats true then why does TNA have Facebook, & Twitters to give News away of the newest Ex-WWE employee that they signed instead of focusing on the talent they have their already and in OVW. Look I dont want to sound like a broken record but still TNA has problems within the company Jericho has said it, heck Jerry Jarrett made mention to them, & others. Because, everyone knows that if TNA gets good then the Wrestling business will get popular again maybe not like the 90's but they may be able to give WWE a run for their money. How they can start this is at Final Resoultion make Roode vs Styles one of the best matches in the last number of y…

Lilian's back (Simple Right)

Yesterday dirtsheets and all wrestling sites were buzzing after the Return of ex Ring Announcer of RAW Lilian Garcia is taking over the full time duties of being the Smackdown Ring Announcer. Lilian will be replacing long time Smackdown ring announcer Tony Chimel who's ring announcing career is up in the air at this point. Debuting in 99 as the RAW ring announcer and being thrust into the storyline with Jarrett who at that point was putting the figure 4 on women when he lost matches. The next big thing that happend in the career of Lilian was singing at Wrestlemania 2000 but the first time she sang at a WWE show was feburary 14. She later sang The Star Spangale Banner on the first Smackdown after 9-11 & the Star Spangale Banner is the song she sang the first two times also. Then 2002 was a big year for her because not only did her first album come out and get on the Top 100 chart at number 69 but, she also started another feud this time with Howard Finkel who left her to beate…

Jobbing or Just waiting

this past Thursday on Superstars Kofi Kingston lost to Primo in a match and believe people are digging to far into it. From Kofi's entrance everyone knows he still one half of the unified Tag Team Champions with Evan Bourne who has been out on a Wellness Policy Violation. From I have heard by the way Bourne did not take any pills or stuff like that he did Synthetic Marijuana which isn't the same thing as real marijuana. But as of December 1 Evan suspension is over and he can comeback to wrestling which is why i think Kofi jobbed to Primo because he didn't need the win being one half of the tag champion with his returning partner. A lot of fans on Facebook have been bashing the WWE for doing that but I just think that since they knew Bourne was coming back soon they didn't need to make Kofi get over in singles competition. People are saying and nobody is wondering about the fact that WWE chooses to enforce rules and when not to enforce them if my my memory serves me cor…

TNA Wrestling: Inside Peek

This is not Scouting Report as you will not be seeing any other wrestlers that have not been or aren't in TNA this is only focused on TNA Wrestling as the series continues & this is my way of expanding the most recent one about the talent roster. I am going to take an in depth look at some members of the TNA roster that i feel are being desperately misused. First person is Doug Williams he has the talent to be a top star in that company & push TNA back to being the alternative because, WWE doesn't usually push people from England. Doug has the skills in the ring & on the mic to be a World Champion in any promotion in the US, Japan, Mexico, etc may be not WWE as they are scared to give new people a chance to be big stars. In TNA Williams should have been World Champion already because he is better in the ring then some of the guys that they have gotten & have given time on ppv & shows. Right next to Doug Williams on the boat of should have been world champio…

1/2/12 Who's coming

Since most of the wrestling sites are planing into the rumors of who is coming 1/2/12, i am a wrestling site & i have yet so here i go. First I dont blame any of you guys for not sending me to write because well I am techniclly not an actual site just look at my web address so I wasnt really surprised. So back to the post in my opinion the guy who is coming the second day of the new year is Y2J Chris Jericho. Yes, even though his twitter posts and interviews say other wise i firmly believe that Jericho is coming back Jan 2 of 2012 because he is the only one. By process of elimination you can tell this because Kharma is still on leave having the kid, HBK is not coming back for the time beinging, & Batista returning is almost an after thought now. So for the most part all the other possibilities have their flaws & can be proven false; but if you think about 2007 when Jericho first returned at first nobody knew it was him & Chris, management, & Vince "didnt"…

We got a problem

I just found out that my computer's keyboard is broken and I have to send it out to get fixed so I will still be posting but I possibly not as much because of it. Please still support the site during this rough time that should not be a problem because you guys always do and I thank you for that. Now is when I can ask if anyone feels like helping out right now if you do want to just send me a message on facebook or twitter or you can comment on the post and tell me. I require nothing just as long as you tell me you want to and note its just temporary base for right now while my computer is being fixed. Just consider it a more in depth persepective on the companies that I don't know a lot of information about them. I will still Be doing the some of the posts but if you want to then we will sort out who does what then and i am not looking for a lot of people but it won't hurt to see the turn out. I will do another post when I get my computer back and what happens next as tim…

Scouting Report

Adam Cole

good in the ring
good on the mic

Best Possible Feuds: Kaz, Jeff Hardy, Ziggler, Edwards, Hero

Cole began training at the CZW academy in 2008, he was trained by DJ Hyde & John Dahmer. In 2009 he started to regularly team up with Tyler Veritas & another fellow graduate from the CZW Training academy they began challenging top teams like team Mackaction, Spanish Armada, & Best Around as well challenged the CZW tag champions The Best Around but didn't win. Before the end of 2009 Cole & Tyler were back in singles competition in a tournament to determine the first CZW Wired TV Champion they both made it to the finals but Cole lost. In late 2010 Cole started to fight for the Light-Heavyweight title & won the title in May after two time limit draws with the champion for the title. Cole retained the title vs the best in CZW & just recently lost the title to Sami Cahllihan. In February 2011, Cole qualified for the Best of the Best tournament; which is a to…

Golden Boys Do No Wrong

Since the begining of the world wide age in wrestling the WWE has always had a company guy or a top guy that nobody can measure up to the 80's it was Hogan, 90's it was Hart, Michaels, Austin, Rock, & in the 2000's it was HHH & Cena. Now after people are starting to realize something that should have been known a long time ago the Golden Boys or the marquee guys are treated different then the other employees. Because, Mr. McMagic not use his name only cares about the money & it's not like he will fire his biggest drawers. Some examples, Michaels & the rest of the Kliq doing the curtain call in MSG that Nash eluded to last night Michaels didnt get in trouble for it when it was anyone else they would have but since he is the top guy nothing. Shown again when Hogan doesnt put anyone over meaning he doesnt let anyone beat him who isnt already established. Thats bad for business because then the company will never make new stars and when you leave the compan…

Sin or Sign 2

Last night at the ppv Sin Cara the masked superstar botched a tope over the top rope or a flip over the ropes onto Hunico it wasnt Hunico's fault that Cara botched it was Sin Cara's all his fault. Since this happend Cara is out 6-9 months costing WWE another masked superstar. This isnt the first time Sin Cara has been crucified for his botches it also happend in both ppv matches vs Chavo Guerrero & Hunico (the Hunico match was worse) could this be a sign. This is the second time Sin Cara will be off WWE TV for an extended period of time now he will not return until the middle of next year. This maybe a sign for WWE managment that when he does come back they may need to take a close look at him to see if he is worth keeping on the main roster. Because Hunico a rookie like Sin Cara has adapted quicker to the WWE Style & Cara has been their longer. I am well aware of the difference between the WWE/USA Style of wrestling to the styles in different part of the world which c…

Post PPV thoughts

In reality the only two matchEs I got wrong were the main event Tag team match and the WWE title match as well. I said that del rio & Awesome truth would win the matches but they didn't which means that CM Punk is the new WWE Champion & Cena & The Rock won the main event. I am happy about two things one being Punk is the world champion because he has deserved the title back for a while now. Also I am kinda excited to see what they do with him as champion because, he is a talented star who uses freedom of speech to it's fullest extent. Now on to the main event Cena & Rock vs Awesome Truth it's good that rock won and not Cena but it's not good that they won to begin with if they plan to keep Miz & Truth together then they should have won. But on the hand it was very funny hearing John Cena get baiscally booded out of MSG even their is nothing that will happen because of it I mean its not like Cena is going to turn heel before mania because he is Vince…

PPV Predictions

Survivor Series
(c)Beth Phoenix vs Eve usual divas match it will probably be like always a space filler between the more hyped matches. I think Beth wins the match to continue to show how dominant she can be & because she just won it not to long ago. (c)Dolph Ziggler vs John Morrison this will be an average match because since Morrison is most likely leaving soon they don't want to make him look that good. The only way i can see Morrison winning is if he loses it either tomorrow or sometime next week, but i am going with Dolph Ziggler because i honestly believe he is adding prestige back to the US title and will add even more if after he loses it he wins the World title Big Show vs (c) Mark Henry this match will end by pinfall or submission, the ring will not break its time for Henry to send the Big show packing like he's done to some many others. If you didn't get it from the hint i just gave even though Show is deserving i think they need to keep the title on Henry for…

Post PPV Thoughts

Last night was Glory By Honor 10 live from Chicago & their was not one match that i was surprised by the outcome of. I did however get a couple of guesses wrong on this ppv as I guessed 4 matches right out of 7 the ones i got wrong are those i will discuss. First one i got wrong was Eddie vs Kyle, I thought O' Riley would win because, of the wins he has been chalking up but it looks actually like Kyle is going to be one of those up n comers who always come close, but cant pull the trigger. From coming close to beating Eddie & Roddy to getting to the final two of SOTF the night before Kyle O' Riley is getting to the point were he needs to be a single star. The next match i guessed wrong was Briscoes vs Bucks, though the Bucks were undefeated since rejoining ROH still the win here shows how much Dem Boys want those belts back & they got there shot at Final Battle vs World's Greatest Tag Team. The last match i guessed wrong was Roddy vs Lethal first the match went…

PPV Predictions

Glory by Honor X

Michael Elgin vs Adam Cole vs Mike Bennett vs Grizzly Redwood Elgin will have Truth at ringside & Bennett will have Bob at ringside but both those guys dont impact my guess as with or with out them i am going with Michael Elgin. After just winning SotF last night Elgin has all the momentum in the world & i dont think anyone can derail it Jimmy Jacobs (w/ Steve Corino) vs Tomasso Ciampa (The Embassy) this match will be a little better then a squash match but i dont see Jimmy winning & therefore The Dominent Male will get another win tonight Eddie Edwards vs Kyle O' Riley this will be a good match because it seems to me Kyle is steeping out his shell first having a good match with Roddy a couple of weeks ago on TV this is the next step. Since Eddie did injure Kyle a couple of months ago in that Tag match Kyle is probably looking for some revenge thats why i think Kyle gets a surprise win tonight Briscoe Brothers vs Young Bucks this is going to be a good match…

I got Nothing

today even though this does count as post I still have nothing that i can think of to do a post on so please anything you guys can send me on facebook, or comment on the site facebook page which is http://www.facebook.com/pages/EvolutionofWrestling/161125040633531?sk=wall. You can also send me on twitter @Bwf1905 i arrived at this namebecause it's for Biggest Wrestling Fan & 1905 thats when the first world champion was crownd. I need you guys to give me a question or a topic to blog about because like the title says i got nothing & that's why i need you to do this for me. I need to do this otherwise i am going to be posting in the same groups all the time.

History of: ECW

Now that the History of: CZW is over let's take a trip back in time to the company before it one of the big 3 from the golden age of wrestling Extreme Championship Wrestling. With this History of: I am going from the night Shane Douglas throw down the NWA Title till the last show in 2001. I will not cover that here because the WWE verison of that wasnt Extreme Championship Wrestling it was more of ATW (Average Training Wrestling). The real history of ECW starts August 27 1994 in Philly, NWA President Dennis Coralluzzo is at the arena in South Philly overseeing a tournament for the NWA title. But what Coralluzzo doesnt know is Tod & Paul take offsense to his presence in the Arena & Tod has Shane throw down the title to end the show. It went like this after Douglas won he grab the title and said some former champions names, paused & said this is tonight dad & then said They can all kiss my ass!!!!!!!! He then says that he doesnt want to be the champion of company tha…

This day in Westling History

Today is another special day for a memeber of the main event this sunday more specifically the one who hasnt wrestled in 7 years more specifically then that his name is The Rock. To add to an already big night Rock's debut, HBK vs Psyho Sid for the WWF Title, Austin vs Hart 1, Undertaker vs Mandkind these matches where apart of Survivor Series 96. Out of the 4 matches i mentioned the first on the card was Mandkind vs Undertaker even though their was No special stipulation still any time these guys get together there always a lot of history. Undertaker won the match the next match on the card was the elimination tag team match involving the debuting Rocky Maivia. Rock's team had him, Marc Mero, Jake Roberts, & The Stalker (Barry Windum) they fought HHH, Jerry Lawler, Crush, & Goldust; Rock won the match he was the sole survivor for his team as well great way to start your career in WWE. The next match was one of the more anticpated matches Steve Austin vs Bret Hart this…

TNA Wrestling Truth is: Talent Roster

For the first time in 9 years TNA actually giving homegrown talent the top spot those guys names are Styles, Roode, & Storm. It's better late then never they did this because all these talents have what it takes to be World Champion but thats not what TNA always does here are some examples. Mike Sanders, Daniels, Kaz, Zema Ion, Doug Williams, Rob Eckos, Magnus, & others have been not used properly during their time in TNA. First Sanders had the mic skills & good enough wrestling ability to win at least one title in TNA but he didnt he was just the talent scout for Sports Entertainment Extreme the heel stable back in the day. Daniels he has been given chances vs AJ, Joe, Booker, RVD, Abyss, & other to be a major star but he never wins and i dont know why i mean he is a more experienced wrestler & better one for that matter then most people on the TNA roster just doesnt get the credit he deserves. Kaz he was getting his major push back in 07 when he won the fight…

This day in Westling History

With Survivor Series only 5 days away & since The Rock is a huge part of it this year why do a post about a special day in his career which just so happens to have been this day 13 years ago. Survivor Series 98 called the Deadly Game this saw a one night tournament for the vacant WWF World Title. The only two non tournament matches on that show were Sable vs Jacqueline for the Women's Title & New Age Outlaws vs Henry & D-Lo vs Headbangers for the tag team titles. In these matches Sable won the women's title & the Outlaws retained the Tag Team gold. The show was also big because it saw Mandkind apart of the Corporation with Vince & Shane but then the main event rolled around which saw sort of fan favorite Rock vs tweener Mandkind. Tweener is a guy who is a heel on TV but still gets cheered by the people anyway like when Sting joined the Main Event Mafia. Well with Vince & Shane at ringside at little before the end of the match The Rock puts Mandkind in t…

Podcasts Part 2

Post PPV Thoughts

A majority of the matches were at usual TNA standards which isnt good especially the knockouts match & Crimson vs Morgan. Since Crimson vs Morgan came first I evaluate that match, the match all together wasnt horrible they showed they want the feud to continue with the action in the match. The ending is my problem you had the Joe/Crimson feud play out the same way as this one Countouts & DQ's which arent good ways to constantly end matches especailly at ppv's & including a guy that you want to get over. Doing the countout, draw, or dq way of ending a match makes the people think the guy isnt good enough to end a match in the time limit ever which isnt good when your dealing with young guy. If they want to get Crimson over then stop it with the not clean finishes and make him get a pinfall victory over somebody already i mean c'mon when was the last he got a pinfall win. The other match was Velvet Sky vs Gail Kim for the Knockouts title & Gail won my problem…

This day in Westling History

Today in my opinion is one of the sadest days in last 10 years of Wrestling History as this day 6 years ago Latino Heat Eddie Guerrero passed away. Eddie grew up in the business because of his father owning a company in El Paso & let Chavo & Eddie fight during intermission. Eddie was one of those special breed of guys who trained all over the world starting in Mexico in 1992. Eddie began in a team with El Hijo Del Santo they stayed together until Eddie turned on Del Santo joining Art Barr & formed the most hated team in Lucha Libre History. Before they could get their big break in the US Art passed away leaving Guerrero by himself so to hone his skills futurer he went to Japan. While in Japan Eddie worked for a short time with Benoit, & Malenko in ECW before being noticed & signed by WCW in 1995 but fully coming in till 96 when he left Japan. In 1996 Guerrero recieved mutiple shots at the US title fighting Flair, & Konnan for the title but losing he didnt reall…

PPV Predictions

Turning Point
(c) Mexican America & Sarita vs Ink Ink & Toxinn this will be an average match at best i am still not sold on the in ring skills of Neal, Hernandez & Anarquia so think will probably be the low light of the show. I am going to go the same way as I did with Bound For Glory I am going with Ink Ink it just seems like their time they have been a team long enough to get the gold to prove they are a good enough team. (c) Eric Young vs Robbie E Rob will probably have Terry at ringside with him to but really wont matter only if they do the right thing and even though EY is a better wrestler than TNA gives him credit for & more entertaining than most people on the roster I still dont see the view of the TV title improving until they get the belt off EY and Rob would be the perfect guy to give it to (c)Velvet Sky vs Gail Kim even though both these Knockouts are two of the most talented women in wrestling this match wont be as long or as good as it could be. I dont see…

Scouting Report

Michael Elgin

good in ring
decent on mic

Best Possible Feuds: Crimson, Richards, Show, Mysterio, Styles

The beast from North of the Border "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin, he is getting better it seems like every time he gets in the ring more depth to his moveset. I also think the pairing with him and Martini is very very good because Elgin cant really talk and though he is annoying Truth still does a great job of putting over his clients. He has fought basically all over the US & Canada from ROH, AAW, ECWA, etc he has been gaining alot of experience. Elgin though i am not aware of his age what ever company he is in has a gold mind with him i think he could make an indy company famous if he does get the ball to early.
I said the same thing about Rasche Brown but I was wrong cause Brown wasn't the complete package Michael Elgin is. He is still developing already good in ring skills & he has Truth to speak for him during promos. I see lots of money in the future of …

Dudley's Coming Back

D-Von Dudley recently did an interview with Hit the Ropes were he discussed a variety of topics one of them being a possible return for him and Bubba to the WWE. Team 3D's contracts expire next August & they are open to leaving TNA if two things happend WWE says they want them back & enough fans say they want to see them back. This would really help the WWE get the tag team division back on the map getting these guys because they are such a great team with some much history. Speaking of history let's look back at their WWE history they are former 8 time World Tag Team Champions, former WWE Tag Team Champions, they particpated in the first Triangle Ladder Match, & the first 2 TLC Matches ever. Also they made tables famous in the WWE before them putting baiscally everyone through tables their was really any wooden tables broken in WWE except for the announcers table occasionally. The Dudley's are one of if not the greatest tag team ever & if WWE is serious ab…

This day in Westling History

Looking back this day 4 years ago was TNA PPV Genesis which saw the debut of Booker, T in the main event. This night also saw the ending of the Fight for the Right tournament when Christian fought Kaz in a Ladder match & Kaz won it was a match that could have made Kaz a star. This show was also the height of Robert Roode's first push as he fought Samoa Joe on this card. Also it saw the Steiner Brothers get a tag team title shot against Styles & Tomko but they came up short in the match. The main event was Kurt Angle defending the World Title in a tag team match teaming with Kevin Nash vs Sting & Booker, T. It worked in the way that whoever got the pin got the World Title, but Angle won the match. This is a ppv that TNA should look back at because this has the matches that deserve time getting the time & having good action. Also a balance of young people & legends on this show which is how it should be because young guys deserve time on ppv as much as the vetera…

This day in Westling History

Today I want to wish a happy birthday to a WWE Hall Of Famer Cowboy Bob Orton he is 61 years old. Bob the son of Bob Orton S.r & the brother of Barry O started his pro-wrestling career in 1972 often teaming with his dad. He didnt strike much success until he joined the NWA & started teaming with Don Kernoble who he won the NWA Tag Titles with & went after Harley Race's bounty to take out Flair & they did with a spike piledriver. In 1984 Bob started the most famous run of his career this was in the east with the WWE as the bodyguard of Hot Rod Rowdy Piper. During this time also Bob started wearing his trademark cast which steams from a match injury were he fought Jimmy Sunka. Though his forearm did heal the cast got over so well they stuck with it, this lead into early 1985 the very First Wrestlmania live which Orton was in the main event of. After that Ace he was called almost all of the time by Rowdy Piper went on to feud with Mr. Wonderful, Mr.T, until he got Don…

This day in Wrestling History

Happy Birthday today to a man with many nicknames he, is the Mental Mastermind, the Paragon of Virtue, the Man of 1004 holds, the King of Bling Bling, The King of the World, Ayatollah of Rock n Rolla, & One Bad Mamma Jamma, Lionheart Chris Jericho. Chris started in 1990 getting trained at the Hart Brother's School of Wrestling where he met Lance Storm the first day and they became friends and still are to this day. After two months of training they started on the Indy scene on some of the shows they worked for the same guy that Christian, Edge, & Rhino were when they were first starting out. In 1991 after befriending fellow Hart family graduate Rick Fuji Chris & Lance started in FMW in Japan. After that Jericho made his way to Mexico were he competed asLeon D'Oro, and later Corazón de León for the 2 years their competing for numerous small market companies but also CMLL the biggest promotion in the country.

History of: CZW 3

The part we ended at the beginning of 2004 after Cage of Death 5. Really the only highlight for this company in 2004 was they returned to Italy but this time had Sabu. Since Nothing really important happened in 2004 I am going to take a trip back to 2001 when a now annual ppv began, and the name of it is Best of the Best which a tournament for the best light heavyweights in all the world. Now lets jump to 2005 as this year is more eventful then the last one because they started a working agreement with the other local promotion Chikara that they would share a training academy. Also in 2005 CZW unfortunately suffered the loss of a performer named Chris Cash and from that point till now they have had the Chris Cash Memorial Show. The company enjoyed one of their best years that year with new Booker Mike Burns at the top until the talent exchange. Also this talent exchange lead to the company in charge of the logos & tron work briefly departed from CZW. Well now to the story it was a…

Elmination is it needed

Today another match was added to Survivor Series November 20 live from Madison Square Garden but how its set up i dont understand. The match is a Elmination Tag Match classic Survivor Series 5 on 5 but its team Orton vs Team Barrett how does that make any sense from whats been going on, on TV Orton has been feuding with Rhodes. Cody is on Wade's team but still its usually to rivals fighting each other in the Survivor Series match not to people who really have had nothing to do with each other in almost a year. The teams are Randy Orton, Mason Ryan, Kofi Kingston, Sin Cara, & Sheamus vs Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes, Christian, Jack Swagger, & Hunico. I mean i get the feuds in the match that Cara & Hunico is one, Christian & Sheamus another, Orton & Rhodes are the feuds in the match. Orton vs Rhodes should be the main feud going into the match not Wade vs Randy cause they have not had anything to do with each other in around a year. Rhodes needs the feud more cause …

This day in Westling History

Today is a very special day for a company that I may not like but this still is considered a big day for them as today they had their first ppv Victory Road 2004. This ppv was headlined by Jeff Jarrett vs Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match for the TNA world title. Also it showed two reasons why TNA was the alternative to WWE and that was shown in their first & seventh matches. The first match was a 20 Man Battle Royal showing off all the talent from the X-Division & for the World X-Cup. This match was won by Hector Garza after he and Kaz were the last two Garza pinned Kaz for the win. Two other matches I feel that are important were the Monsters Ball Match between Monty Brown, Raven, & Abyss. I feel it was important cause it showed a different match type that most fans were unacustomed to. One of the more anticipated matches on the card was the tag team Last Man Standing Match between XXX & AMW this was an important match because it lead to the cage match in december. This M…

War's is Coming

Tonight AAW aka Wrestling's best kept secret is on IPPV tonight for the War is coming which sees World Champion Silas Young fight the War Machine Rhino. Tonight many are calling it a huge test for Young as Rhino is a proven champion & it could be a big win for Young. Also tonight has Scott Stiner, Honky Tonk Man & Greg the Hammer Valentine will be on the show & signing autographs prior to the event. Also you could ee a grudge match between Arik Cannon & Jimmy Jacobs who have been feuding on and off for a majority of the year. Their match will be a dog collar chain match as Taz would say i think that match will be a  Rocketbuster. You can also see ROH Wrestler & Heritage Champion Michael Elgin defend his title vs Mason Beck thats going to be a good one. Former Tough Enough contestant Matt Cross will show that WWE made a mistake by not leaving him in the competition when he goes face to face with AAW longstay Shane Hollister. I am well aware most of you probably …

This day in Westling History

This day 8 years ago the wrestling world unfortuatly lossed another talented performer he was known for his antics in WWE as the Hardcore Champion i am talking about Crash Holly. Crash real name Mike Lockwood debuted in a local Bay Area promotion in 1989 where he fought until 1994. Originally Michael Modest one of his trainers & Crash were pegged to join ECW being signed by Taz but he only had a breif stint their because of try-out match he got with the WWE and recieved a contract. After 6 months in WWE development he debuted on WWE TV in August of 99 as Hardcore Holly's cousin. As a team they were more so used to put over the more established teams on RAW & at ppv's, until October 18th 1999 when Hardcore & Crash def Rock n Sock Connection on RAW. On February 24, 2000 Crash def Test to win his first Hardcore Title & made the Hardcore title 24-7. He went on to hold the Hardcore title 22 times in the time the title was in existence. His next milestone came on the…

New Bodies on the FA Wire

90 days ago on August 5 2011 WWE did their usual yearly releasing not getting rid of to many people but who they got rid of did make an Impact (no pun intended). Yes as of today Chris Masters, Melina, Harry Smith, & Vladimir Kozlov 90 day No-Compete Clauses are up. Will they join TNA the next question I think 2 of the 4 probably by the end of the year. The two people i think are Melina & Chris Masters because I dont know if Harry & Vlad are still focused on only wrestling cause of the rumors of both men giving MMA a try. Melina  would actually do good in TNA because they value the womens division more they think women can have good matches so i think melina will flourish their. Because of how good she is in the ring TNA will make her a top knockout & with her getting JoMo maybe eaiser if they try to. Masters on the other will be given chances that he wasnt given in WWE because its been seen more than once that some people who dont get some chances in WWE they get them …

TNA Wrestling: Hulking down Finally

Finally TNA is doing something right they have taken Hogan off TV for a while to focus on the talent they want to be focusing on. That is a very good place to start because many people just want TNA to change cold turkey which wont happen they need to change step by step which this is a good starting point. Now they need to focus on the actual wrestling members of Immortal and not just the managers like they have been yah and Jarrett. Cause they have a talented young star like Gunner they could be pushing to the forfront of the stable to slowly phase out the aging vets of the stable. Like Dudley, Stiner, Jarrett, & Angle; immortal could be a little better having maybe a little less veterans on some more of the younger guys that arent seen as much as they should be. Good members would be Doug Williams, Magnus, Joe, Rob Eckos (or just drop his Jersey Shore Gimmick & keep what they have now with him), Haskins, Kash, Aries, etc. Just get new faces were they could be, now that they…
