• #NXTMVP: Andrade “Cien” Almas (Week of 3/19/2017)

    This week’s edition of NXT mostly served to fill out the midcard portion of the upcoming NXT TakeOver: Orlando. As the supporting cast at Full Sail University began to pair off with their big show dance partners, one NXT Superstar made his best case yet for main event stardom....
  • Review: Some Hits, Misses In 2017 New Japan Cup

    Within all pro wrestling organizations, there exist multiple hierarchies: one pay-per-view means more than another. A particular championship is more sought after than another. Within the hierarchy of yearly singles tournaments in New Japan Pro Wrestling, the New Japan Cup sits firmly below both the G1 Climax and the Best...
  • Levin: The Fear Of WrestleMania Failure

    There are less than two weeks until WrestleMania 33, and admittedly, I’m a nervous wreck. Call it what you will – my inability to trust what WWE puts together or my nervous Jewish mother intuition. I have a real concern that April 2 will go down as either one of the...
  • IMPACT Wrestling: Too Late to Say Sorry

    In 1961, You’re in the Picture premiered on CBS. It was a game show in which celebrities would stick their face in a cardboard cutout and guess what the picture was by asking “yes or no” questions. After starring in The Honeymooners and his own variety series, national comedic...
  • Mackle: Raw Is A Three-Women Division

    Women’s wrestling has come a long, long way since the Attitude Era. Even though I and many men were fans of a good “Bra and Panties” match, the women of today have totally eclipsed those memories with solid matches on both brands. However, Raw’s women’s division fails to keep...

As we pay tribute to the late, great Gary Hart, it’s time to spotlight his 2009 memoir,...
  • #NXTMVP: The Authors of Pain (Week of 3/12/2017)

    The March 15, 2017 edition of NXT featured Kassius Ohno’s in-ring return to the WWE against NXT Champion Bobby Roode, but this week’s #NXTMVP had probably already changed clothes and packed their bags before the main event. In spite of occupying the show’s very first segment, the NXT Tag...
  • Levin: Big Show vs. Hulk Hogan? SMH

    I about threw up when I read the possibility of Hulk Hogan making an appearance at WrestleMania 33 to replace Shaquille O’Neal in a match with Big Show. Hogan, who was wiped clean from WWE’s website like a crime scene on NCIS after a tape surfaced of racial slurs...
