Fact: Paige can be the cornerstone of the new, improved Divas’ division

Question: is this a changing of the guard in WWE?

April 8, 2014

After Wrestlemania, there was talk about how this was a new generation of WWE talent taking over. Undertaker lost his streak; the New Age Outlaws and Kane were squashed by the Shield; and Daniel Bryan defeated the Authority to become the face of the company.

And last night’s RAW seems to consolidate that view.

There were vignettes for Adam Rose and Bo Dallas; Emma and Summer Rae featured in another mixed tag and got big cheers; Cesaro is the new Paul Heyman guy; Lana introduced the Bulgarian Brute Alexander Rusev, who dispatched Zack Ryder; and perhaps most amazingly (but wonderfully) Paige won the Divas title on her debut, pinning AJ Lee.

At the end, as the stable formerly known as Evolution retreated in the face of Bryan and the Shield’s dominance, they looked old…old and tired…and the once-invincible bullies were helpless.

I am excited for what’s coming up on WWE. I hope this fantastic and sparkling promise for the next 12 months comes to fruition.

Fact: “British wrestling” doesn’t owe you anything

March 25, 2014

Have you seen the latest plans for the FA Women’s Super League? After a couple of successful seasons with one closed elite league, the FA have now introduced a second division, and allocated places according to specific criteria and each club’s long-term strategies.

Great for the best in women’s football, apparently; but not so great for the grassroots feeder clubs, who fear they’re getting ignored and left behind by the governing body who are meant to be looking out for their interests.

I mention this because there’s been a lot of talk lately about what’s “best” for British wrestling.  There’s been fans complaining about the number of imports on cards, the publicity gained by promotions, the repeated bookings of top talent resulting in duplicate matches.
