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 […]
