I’m still not entirely sure what to make of this week’s Emma-related saga. (Melodr-emma?)
After news broke of her arrest for sixth-degree larceny (or ‘shoplifting’, as it’s known), WWE were swift to update their website with news of her release.
By the time I woke up the next morning, she’d been reinstated, and WWE were talking ominously of the further action they intended to take in recognition of her law-breaking.
I found the entire episode quite puzzling. Read the rest of this entry »

Seeing Fandango get his tour of Goodison Park (home of Everton, for those of you not into football) was both hilarious and bizarre.
Now, seeing as WWE are heading back to the UK, Emma needs to get herself down to Upton Park. OK, so the Premier League season’s over, but they have an excellent bubble machine, as well as a song about bubbles. Read the rest of this entry »

I talk about this a lot, but after last night’s RAW it seems that it’s finally coming true – Sara Del Rey’s fierce dojo stable is preparing to take over WWE and give us the Divas’ division we should have had all along. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Did you see the pictures of Naomi’s broken eye socket?
If you did, it’s likely you didn’t see it on her Twitter account. She posted it, and then deleted it.
Why? Read the rest of this entry »
