    In just a few hours, I’ll be celebrating a quarter century on Earth, and I’ve spent most of that time yelling “Wooo!” after a chop. As a Northeast Philly pauper, I’ve been blessed to attend so many wrestling shows, hosted by virtually every major company since 2002: TNA, ROH,...
  • Mahalis: Has SmackDown Dropped The Ball?

    For the past few months, most wrestling fans that regularly watch WWE programming would tell you that SmackDown was superior to Raw.

  • Levin: WWE Payback Was For The Fans

    Thank you, Braun Strowman. WWE Payback finally showed Roman Reigns as vulnerable, merely a speed bump in the path of the company’s best character since the birth of Bray Wyatt. The “Monster Among Men” took ownership of the yard the “Big Guy” proclaimed was his after beating Undertaker at...

  • #NXTMVP: Drew McIntyre (Week of 4/9/17)

    Even though this week’s episode of NXT concluded with Shinsuke Nakamura’s official sendoff to the main roster, the show as a whole was decidedly forward-facing. Young powerhouse Dylan Miley asserted himself as a wrestler to watch, while Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot built anticipation for the first official match...
  • Roundtable: #ThankYouTaker

    What is your favorite Undertaker look? Jay Mackle: Trench coat and hat combo. That’s the look that screams Undertaker more than anything to me. Evan Cross: I’m going with the Ministry of Darkness since it’s the most mysterious and fits the character the best. I will also cop to...
