Breaking News: TNA New Signing

Image
Rumors have been flying over the internet who could be the guy behind the August 1st videos from TNA. It has been reported and confirmed that the man is not Dave Batista; the rumors were proven false by Wzronline.com. Now I am not going to push the rumors of who WZR is saying it could be or even might be but I am going to look at who would be good acquisitions for TNA in this time. Here we go:

John Morrison: I think he is the best and in many ways most likely guy to go to TNA because the rumors have been there since he left WWE. Johnny I think would finally realize his full potential as long as TNA knows what they are doing to help him do that. Even though Vince was right not to push Johnny I just think TNA will finally give him a shot to shine.

American Wolves: With it being the case that Eddie & Davey's contracts are up on the exact date this is hyping it might be fair to say they are possible. Eddie & Davey are by far two of the best wrestlers in the world & on th…

Ex-WWE Talent Speaks his Mind

Image
Once again things haven to slowed down yet which is why I am posting now instead of during the day. Harry Smith, the son of the WWE & wrestling legend "Davey Boy Smith" British Bulldog and former WWE Tag Team Champion. Since his release from WWE Smith has found a home in Japan apart of a successful tag team with also former WWE talent Lance Archer. These guys are champions in both the NWA & IWGP and are showing they are better then some may have thought. Below is an interview of DH Smith shooting on the WWE:

This Day in Wrestling History

Today I would like to move away from what I usually do that being mainstream wrestling and show appreciation for a talented young Indy wrestler by the name of Prince Devitt. Prince Devitt is from Ireland but is extremely well known in Japan were he most often competes. Many call Devitt one of the best wrestlers in the world because of his talent and natural ability. Because of him very sparingly appearing in the US, I know very little about Devitt which is why I can only say what I know. Also this match with him featured below:

How I Would Book it Background......... WWF 1995

Welcome once again to the most successful Blog Series I have done here by far it is time for another edition of How I would book it. For those of you who have no idea what How I would book it is, well I'll tell you it is a blog series in which I go back in time to a specific era and show how I would have booked it. It is usually an era in Wrestling history that wasn't a good time for specific company like WCCW in the Mid 80's or WCW outside of 96-98 or in this case WWF the mid 90's.

At one point the World Wrestling Federation now known as the WWE was a struggling organization strangely enough it wasn't to long ago that it was the case. To be specific in 1995 WWF has it's worst year of business ever from not booking Diesel as strong World Champion to booking both Bret Hart & Undertaker in feuds with Mid-card talent for the entire year. This year is one of the reasons the WWF almost went of business during this time period. Now it's my turn to step back …

Match of the Day

I just found this match on Facebook and I thought I never have posted anything about Japan wrestling well here is a great indication of Japanese Wrestling. Some US Wrestling may know Okada from TNA as he was apart of TNA for a short time a few years ago. Since going back to Japan he has made himself a big star in NJPW.


Enjoy this has been touted as a Match of the Year Candidate:

WWE vs TNA: Closer then we think

Now I have been one of the people who thought TNA was nowhere near competing with WWE in anyway. But that's the thing they still aren't but indirectly they are competing. They aren't competing the way WCW did but they are forcing WWE to make the shows a little better. Then again I don't think it's just TNA it's more USA network forcing WWE to get better ratings. But let's look now what TNA is doing right over the last few months and what TNA is doing wrong the last few months like we did yesterday looking at WWE the same way.


TNA Going Right:

Shows are a lot less convoluted & are easier to followWorld Title means more then it didKnockouts are importantRebranding the X-Division Bringing up new faces like Sabin, Magnus, Manic, & othersMaking themselves different again by cutting down the ppv'sBest Heel in Mainstream WrestlingNot Depend on EX-WWE Stars anymoreImpact on the RoadGot rid of titles that meant nothing TNA What is Still going Wrong:

Matches of the Day

With the fact today is the 25 year anniversary of the untimely passing of Frank Goodish aka Bruiser Brody. Due to this fact I feel it is the best thing to do and the right time to do it if we take a look back at the Greatest Brawlers in the history of Wrestling:

ROH Moving Forward

After Best in the World new broke that Jay Briscoe & Mark Briscoe were both injured in their matches and due to that fact the ROH World Title has been vacate. At first I thought no luck for ROH losing two top talents. But I also think that if ROH makes this tournament right they have many new stars. This tournament could be big for them as it could be what some of their stars needed to move forward and break through.

The tournament thus far:

Michael Elgin
BJ Whitmer
Brian Kendrick
Paul London
Jay Lethal
Kevin Steen
Adam Cole
Karl Anderson
Matt Taven
Sonjay Dutt
Tomasso Ciampa
Roderick Strong
Silas Young vs Adam Page (Winner enters the Tournament
Fans Vote the 15th man into the match,

1 more to go who do you guys think it is. Also would do you guys think win the tournament, I hope to see another first time champion in that match, but also see the ascension of new stars in this tournament. Last guy will be announced tomorrow

PPV Predictions

Money in the Bank  WWE Tag Team Championships (Pre-Show) The Shield (c’s) vs. The Usos
even though The Shield is in this match because its the pre-show it doesn't need to be anything special for that reason. But I think because The Shield is in it I think it will be better then most other pre-show matches. If I was WWE I would give the titles The Uso's because they are getting hot and strike early because nobody would expecting it. But I don't think they will use that train of thought so I am going with The Shield winning.

WWE Divas Championship Match AJ Lee (c) vs. Kaitlyn
this will be the usual divas match nothing more. They have done a great job making the divas seem more important then they have in a long time but they still have a while before people stop expecting the same old matches.

“Money in the Bank” All-Stars Ladder Match
CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. RVD vs. Randy Orton vs. Christian vs. Sheamus vs. ???? (Kane Scratched)

Interesting Finds: A Match from the Past

This is not a new series but only a post I'll when I find something interesting enough to share with you guys & girls. Well today I found a video of the Undertaker & Scott Hall teaming together in Japan which is something I didn't even know existed. This match happened March 1990 so this was a couple months before Undertaker left WCW for the WWE later that year. Well now enjoy the match featured below:

Superstar Recall 8

Image
Even though it might have been fitting to do last week because of the unfortunate event that happened but I decided it would better doing this instead. Over the course of the blog series we have looked a many infamous superstars from Shockmaster to Saba Simba. Now we move to another infamous gimmick and that is the clown not many know at one point WWE had a clown on their roster. He was an evil clown named Doink, instead of being fun he would play mean tricks on people & when he hurt them. Even though he didn't stay in WWE that long people still remember him for his antics & skill. Below is Doink's debut in the WWE:

Updated BFG Standings

The BFG series is a tournament to determine the #1 contender to the World Title which is unique to TNA. This tournament runs from mid June to sometime before BFG especially now that TNA got rid of No Surrender were the finals were usually held. Below is the most up to standings of the series thus far:

I really hope Magnus wins the tournament because I always thought he had tons of potential he just need the chance to show his talent. I think Magnus's win could be similar to Bobby Roode who broke out after winning the BFG Series. But we don't know who will win we have to wait and see:

Standings (Win-Loss records reflect singles matches only) Magnus: (3-0) 24 Points
Samoa Joe: (2-0-1dr) 19 Points
Jeff Hardy: (3-0) 17 Points
A.J. Styles: (1-0-1dr) 12 Points
Ken Anderson: (1-1) 7 Points
Austin Aries: (1-1) 7 Points
Daniels: (1-0) 7 Points
Hernandez: (1-2) 7 Points
Bobby Roode: (0-2) 0 Points
Kazarian: (0-3) 0 Points
Jay Bradley: (0-2) 0 Points

Moment in Time 10

I have been doing this blog series for a while now and there is one moment I have forgotten about which is strange because most people view as it the turning point of the Monday Night Wars. Not Austin 3.16 promo but Survivor Series 1997: Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels in Montreal. The match that is known as the Montreal Screw job. Bret was World Champion and he was leaving because his contract was to much for the WWF at the time to pay so Vince told him go to WCW. One problem Bret didn't want to lose the belt in Montreal he wanted to vacate the title, and he especially didn't want to loss the title to Shawn. Shawn & Bret had real life hatred for each other Vince didn't want another incident like what happened when his Women's title was thrown in the garbage to happen; so Vince had to get the title off Bret and he did the only thing that was left to do:

For those who may not have been able to catch it or didn't have a clue about it, Ric Flair & Roddy Piper were on TV last night. Piper & Flair were a part of Celebrity Wife Swap were Flair's girlfriend & Piper's Wife switched families for a week. Viewers go insight into the lives of both Ric & Roddy and how their families live. I really enjoyed the show it should how close Ric & Roddy are nowadays and also should the lives they lead outside of wrestling. Below I have a link to the show that aired last night if you want to watch it click the link and I hope you enjoy:
