The new year is upon us once again and this time of year generally bring about new year’s resolutions and looking ahead to the year to come. 2012 was a decent year in professional wrestling. TNA had their highlight with the summer’s Bound For Glory Series and Impact in June, July, and August. WWE had a huge buyrate for Wrestlemania, The Rock in a match, and the return of Brock Lesnar who had a great match with John Cena. But that’s last year, yesterday’s news! I’d like to look ahead to 2013 and give some thoughts on what I would LIKE to see in wrestling this year. Not to say that these things are going to happen but if I had my way, they would. » Read more..

Well it’s that time of the month again. Yes Mo is cranky but also the WWE has another monthly pay per view offering for all of us “loyal” fans in the WWE universe. This is ofcourse the pay per view where every match is a title match… and a Randy Orton match. There have been some changes to the card, both on purpose and by accident, and there are some storylines, good and bad, that will advance at this show. Here’s a rundown of what I’m looking forward to, not looking forward to, and how I see the outcomes of each of the matches. » Read more..
It’s sometimes hard to believe that it’s been almost 5 years since the WWE scrapped the Cruiserweight title in disgrace. Yes, sadly, the championship that was held by such names as Brian Pillman, Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, and Dean Malenko went out with a wimper as Hornswoggle was the final champion. With the fictional network on the horizon and Monday Night RAW’s move to three hours, talk has surfaced regarding bringing the Cruiserweight title back.
WWE is badly in need of solid undercard matches. The tag team division has a chance to shine occasionally but not consistently. Wrestlers like Ryback and Brodus Clay just aren’t cutting the mustard and don’t go in the ring any longer than 5 minutes. What the company needs are 15-20 minute matches full of the spectacular moves and high flying that only the lighter weight guys can consistently bring. I looked at the WWE roster page and was surprised by the number of wrestlers on the roster who are 215 pounds and under. It’s a great range of wrestlers who vary from jobbers to upper card talents. With that said, here is a look at the current roster of WWE Cruiserweights. » Read more..
Well anyone that heard our last show (if not its HERE) knows that I am not big on WWE right now. RAW has just plain sucked lately and Smackdown has merely existed. Outside of Brock Lesnar, there hasn’t been one thing that I can point to and say “I really like that”. But today I sat back and asked myself, how did this happen? I mean Wrestlemania build was great and the post Mania angle and Extreme Rules match with Cena and Lesnar was also top notch. How did the mighty fall so fast?
Then it hit me. There were a lot of things that I cared about going into 2012 that I just don’t give a crap about now. So I have compiled my list of things that WWE has made me stop wanting to see throughout the course of 2012. » Read more..
IT’s the Extreme Rules Preview show of We Talk Wrestling. Addie and Mo run down all the matches. Yes, all four of them. The guys also look at the great Brock Lesnar promo video, how to use him, is Daniel Bryan about to become the next big thing, Randy Orton, positive changes in TNA programming, and the proposed Mick Foley angle. All this plus they answer mailbag questions on Austin staying in WCW, if WCW had won the Monday Night War, promotors’ sons, and how smart the internet really is.

I have always been a huge fan of tag team wrestling dating back to the mid 1980′s and, when we received multiple email questions from loyal listeners over the past few weeks asking about the best and our favorite tag teams, I knew I wasn’t alone.
I’d love to be writing this about my favorite tag team in the WWE today. The problem is, there are fewer teams in 2012 then probably ever in history. In the mid to late 1980′s you had a dozen or more established teams, so much so that they were able on two occasions to have a 10 TEAM Survivor Series elimination match. The teams present in these matches ranged in calibre from The Hart Foundation, British Bulldogs, and Demolition all the way down to The Bolsheviks, Young Stallions, and Conquistadors. As the WWF entered the 1990′s there was still a glut of tag teams on the roster such as the Nasty Boys, Money Inc., the Legion of Doom, Steiner Brothers, and Natural Disasters. At any given time it was not uncommon to have 3 different tag team feuds going on concurrently. » Read more..
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 manager, say William Regal, speak for them.
If you’ve heard the latest edition of We Talk Wrestling (if not it’s found HERE) you know that I was really bullish on the idea of William Regal managing a European stable. That stable got me thinking and expanding my list of guys and who should be their manager. So below is a list, in no particular order, of what my dream rosters of both managers and their stables would look like. » Read more..
