Jinder Mahal‘s seeming overnight ascension to the top of the card on Smackdown Live has been a polarizing angle within the WWE Universe. While many have applauded the bravery of WWE Creative for pushing a new star into a fresh new storyline, there are countless more that have decried the move as lacking foresight or backstory, especially […]

Tonight’s edition of Smackdown Live concluded a 48-hour exodus of WWE Superstars – the WWE Superstar Shake Up – jumping brands that began shortly before last night’s Monday Night Raw began. Originally announced last week by Vince McMahon, many expected something akin to previous Brand Drafts or trading between GM’s Raw’s Kurt Angle and Smackdown Live‘s Daniel Bryan, but in reality that wouldn’t have made as […]

While in recent years the Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania, has become more of a celebratory staff party in the ring that pays tribute to WWE’s past and present all at once, the following night’s Monday Night Raw has become the most must-see TV for WWE of the year.

Forty […]

John Cena, Sting, and Finn Bálor have all been injured in matches with Seth Rollins. Is he careless? Is Seth Rollins dangerous to other wrestlers?

Jamie Greer - Aug 25, 2016

Thanks in part to the many English and Irish stars who are dominating the WWE landscape, such as Finn Balor, Paige, Becky Lynch, Neville, and Sheamus, to the rise in UK promotions like Progress, Revolution Pro and the brilliant upstart What Culture Pro Wrestling (WCPW), to the domination of such British indy darlings like England’s […]

Tom Cunningham, Editor - Nov 30, 2020

Not many fans knew the name Bruno Lage before he stepped foot in the Wolverhampton Wanderers technical area in the summer; nobody really knew what to expect.
