Fact: 2012 will be WWE’s year of Vince’s Angels

December 21, 2011

“Once upon a time, there were three little boys who worked in the indies.

“And they were each assigned very hazardous duties, such as working matches with Teddy Hart, and veering towards a TNA contract.

“But I took them all away from all that and now they work for me.

“My name is Vince.

















Fact: Daniel Bryan is our new WWE World Heavyweight Champion

December 19, 2011

That title consists of a series of words I never thought I’d type in that order.

Hands up who was expecting Bryan to be the first Money in the Bank briefcase winner to cash in and lose?

Sure, I’m a little bit disappointed that he didn’t wait for Wrestlemania (although not so much that I’ll repeatedly misuse the word “hypocrite”, like Michael Cole), but this was awesome.

And it’s mostly awesome because it happened at Big Show’s expense: he was the one who was trying to persuade Bryan a few weeks ago to cash in on Mark Henry, because it doesn’t matter when you take your opportunity as being a world champion is more important than anything. Let’s hope that Show’s two-minute-long title reign gave him a lot of happiness.

Congratulations, Dragon!

Question: which WWE TLC match are you most looking forward to?

December 17, 2011

If I’ve got my calculations correct, we’ve got six matches coming up on tomorrow’s WWE Tables Ladders Chairs pay-per-view. (No Divas match – girls aren’t allowed in TLC any more, and that’s probably just as well. Can you imagine the havoc Alicia Fox would wreak?)

So which of the following – if any – are you most looking forward to?

Question: How much of The RAW Slammys did you watch?

December 13, 2011

So here’s a question for you. Think, and choose your answer wisely.

After last night’s RAW Slammys, featuring Ted DiBiase Sr, good ol’ JR Jim Ross, Lita, Rey-Rey Mysterio (who’s forgotten about his feud with Punk because Punk is now facey-facey-face-face like him), Mick Foley, and a Johnny Ace video montage, I would be fascinated to know how much of it you managed to sit through.

Question: What wrestling-themed Christmas presents are you getting?

December 12, 2011

If you’ve not written your letter to Santa yet, you’d better get a move on – it’s less than two weeks until Christmas!

And if you’ve not got a clue what you want, or what to buy the other wrestling fans in your life, I have a few suggestions… Read the rest of this entry »

Fact: TNA signs new deal with Challenge TV in the UK

December 8, 2011

Well, I’d have preferred the news that John Morrison has signed, but I guess a two-year deal to air Impact Wrestling on Challenge TV in the UK and Ireland is pretty good as well.

Dixie Carter’s earmarked January’s tour as a celebration of this new TV deal, saying: “Our wonderful fans have made us the most-watched wrestling programme in the UK.”

Rumour: Impact Wrestling is making a big announcement today

December 8, 2011

Dixie Carter, President of Impact Wrestling, posted on Facebook last night: “I’ve just put pen to paper on something really big for our great fans in the UK and Ireland. Full details in the morning…”

My enquiries lead me to report that when she says “the morning”, she actually means “the morning in America”, so early afternoon our time (tsk, Americans).

So what could it be?

An apology for constantly jobbing out poor Doug Williams?

John Morrison making his TNA debut on the UK tour?
