Fact: Monday Night RAW can be amazing just for half an hour

November 27, 2013

RAW_1070_Photo_166-2You might have seen on Twitter today that some of the folk in the British wrestling community have been posting only nice tweets – none of the negativity and bitching that we normally get on there.

And in that spirit, I’ve revised the blog I was going to write today. Read the rest of this entry »

Some facts on how to make three hours of WWE RAW worth watching

May 17, 2012

So as from this summer, Monday Night RAW will run for three hours rather than its usual two and a bit. (I’m sure anyone who saw this week’s instalment will be DELIGHTED at this news.)

For WWE’s delectation, I’ve made a list of ways to ensure that a three-hour RAW is worth watching.

1. Give one hour of every show over to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan facing each other in an iron-man match. Read the rest of this entry »


Rumour: there will be no WWE contract at JoMo’s palace of wisdom

October 13, 2011

I read it on the internet, so it may not be true – but could John Morrison be on his way out of WWE?

I adore the lusciously-locked, hard-abbed Prince of Parkour, but this wouldn’t be the stupidest move in the world for the WWE. And it would surely come as no surprise to Morrison himself.

Squashed on Monday Night Raw by Christian, Dolphin Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Cody Rhodes (after a match against Christian that lasted maybe two minutes); destroyed by Mark Henry last week; chucked into the fluff match at Wrestlemania; no storyline of any note. John Morrison is officially a jobber.

His last angle was his tentative entry into a feud with R-Truth back in April – you remember, that hideously embarrassing one about smoking, in which for some reason there was also a heel-turn for water. Then that was somewhat sandbagged by Morrison’s time out for a neck injury (which took longer to heal than WWE seemed to have anticipated, though anyone with any sense could have guessed that neck surgery would require a fairly lengthy recuperation time) and Truth’s subsequent development into a fabulous crazy-ass heel.

It’s ironic that Truth is now paired up in the Awesome Truth, because the last time JoMo seemed to be relevant and a part of WWE’s big-time plans was when he was tagging with Miz and presenting the Dirt Sheet. It’s been long documented that Miz and Morrison were both dedicated hard workers, giving ideas for their characters, running the ropes hours before shows were scheduled to start, and begging for their own internet show.

Yet Miz is the one who’s made the step up to main-event player, while Morrison reportedly used some of his time off to do some comedy improv classes – a worthwhile investment, I’m sure, but not really what you’d expect a relatively experienced WWE Superstar to be doing now.

Similarly, Morrison had a few matches with Ziggler pre-Wrestlemania before they were thrown into the stupid tag featuring Snooki, but since then Dolphin (with the help of the magnificent Vickie Guerrero, of course) has continued to be a solid mid-carder and developed his mic work, and even got his jaw broken by Hugh Jackman – a fine endorsement, I’m sure you’ll agree.

The internet smarks have been speculating for ages now about how Morrison’s girlfriend Melina affects his career, but apart from the fact that to do so is horribly sexist and just an old variation on the idea that women are just honeytraps hellbent on preventing their men from achieving their full potential, if JoMo was at the top of his game then there’d be no rumours about him not getting his contract renewed.

It’s a rumour I can see having more than a grain of truth in it. I fear that Morrison’s palace of wisdom will be relocated somewhere far away from the WWE Universe very shortly.


Fact: Seriously. Triple H is the worst boss ever.

October 12, 2011

That thing about slagging off the entire WWE roster? Hunter, dude, they’re your STAFF. Whatever your industrial dispute with them, you can’t go on record as saying they are terrible wrestlers who can’t put on entertaining matches. Apart from anything else, if that were true, why would you want them to come back to work?

Also, “we shut up! And we fight!” is the worst solution to your problems. Oh, Triple H. Fail.

Also also, your blazer fits Punk better than it does you.
