Why the X Division Matters

On July 10th, 2011 TNA / Impact Wrestling will present Destination X, which for me is the most important PPV in the history of the company. On June 19th 2002 a new North American promotion opened it’s doors on PPV hoping to take a bite out of the WWE’s pie and seeking to appeal to […]

A Look Back At In Your House Canadian Stampede

It’s hard to believe but this week, July 6th more specifically, marks the 14th anniversary of WWF’s (yes that’s not a typo) In Your House: Canadian Stampede Pay Per View. This show is still considered one of the best top to bottom cards that the WWF/E has ever put on. In fact it was the […]

My 5 Caged Memories

With the upcoming release of the new WWE DVD “The Greatest Cage Matches of All Time”, I thought that I would sit back and reflect on some of my very favorite cage matches of the over 25 years I have been a wrestling fan. They are in no particular order, and I know I will […]

Can Someone Explain This Shit To Me? Vol. #1

Hello and welcome to my new semi regular blog where I look to answers to many questions, mostly wrestling related. Can someone explain to me why Mark Henry is a heel, other than the obvious I mean? I’m talking purely from a character point of view, why did he suddenly become such a dick? In […]

Our Top 5 Randy Savage Matches

I’m simply not done celebrating the man. And neither is my co-host, so Addie and I have decided to each pick our top 5 matches from The Macho Man. I should start by pointing out this was a real hard list to pair down to 5, so I’ll quickly mention 2 matches I love not […]

Goodbye Macho Man

Randy Savage and Owen Hart are the reasons that you are reading this right now. Without those two men there is no We Talk Wrestling podcast, there is no wetalkwrestling.com, and simply put, I am not a fan. One Saturday morning in late 1986 a 9 year old Addie was in tears, running to his […]

Please Come Home Chris Jericho

In the early expansion of the Rock N’ Wrestling era Vince McMahon built his promotion around Hulk Hogan. Yes he was fortunate to have some other talented acts such as Roddy Piper, Randy Savage and Bobby Heenan but his strategy was to bring in stars such as Cindi Lauper and Mr.T to place the spotlight […]

Why The Undertaker & HHH was great and MMA can’t match it

  They may not be as young as they once were, or as strong, fast or athletic, but Undertaker and Triple H showed the most valuable tool a pro wrestler can have is a mind for the business that understands how to tell a story.   Watching it (twice now) I found myself noticing how […]

John Cena is already a heel so embrace it WWE

Kobe Bryant is a better basketball player than Lebron James I’m not saying Bryant would beat him in a one on one game, though I would still favor him because of how he competes, but because of how he makes everyone around him better. For years it was asked if hockey’s great one Wayne Gretzky […]

My Manager’s Draft

My last column focused on whom I would select that is currently on the WWE roster should the idea to bring back managers actually come to fruition. (What Vince change his mind? Get outta here!). The more that I reflected on that column, the more I began to think who could benefit from having a […]

I Don’t “Get” Creative

The Writers within WWE and TNA are often referred to as the creative department, or simply creative. While the idea of calling them WWE creative seems like an oxymoron to some, sort of like working lunch, or French deodorant, the truth is that sometimes it’s not that they aren’t creative enough, it’s that they’re simply […]

The New/Old Idea of Managers

It’s something that I’ve been wondering about for years: Where are all the managers? My childhood memories are chalked full of guys like Bobby Heenan, Jimmy Hart, J.J Dillon, and even “The Doctor of Style” Slick. They were all great colorful characters that added so much, not only to the guys that they were managing […]
