Your morning crappy wakeup call!

Curtain Jerker: Zeb Coulter

17 Submitted by on Wed, 20 February 2013, 08:00
Well, some in the mainstream press are picking up on Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter’s extremist views on immigration (or, if not extremist, at least uninhibited), which, if you remember JBL goosestepping in Germany 9 years ago, you know that Swagger’s closing in on the title, if not at WrestleMania, then sometime after. Whenever any performer is judged by the Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker 2/18/13: Chamber Fallout

  That picture above? Oh yes, it happened. Which means Mr. Swagger will get to open WrestleMania, facing Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Brass Knuckles/Western States Heritage/European/Saskatchewan Hardcore International Title. Other than Swagger winning, and Rock sucking more wind than an Iowa-sized turbine, I have to say it was a damn fine show. The Shield are WWE’s most effective Continue Reading...

What’s Valentines Day without a little discussion about sex and lies, minus the videotape? While we here at WrestleCrap don’t like to propagate anything that might be nothing more than hearsay, we can at least speculate about the meaning of something, particularly since Curtain Jerker’s for discussion that considers all viewpoints. By now, most of us know the rumors that Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker, 2/13/13: Chamber Memories

Just a quick one before I go to bed, since I can’t think of much else. Of the 15 Elimination Chamber matches that have taken place in WWE history, what matches, moments, and spots are most memorable to you? My pick: Shawn winning the World Heavyweight title. I was a jaded know-it-all then (not much has changed), but since Shawn Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker, 2/11/13: Grammy-Worthy Themes

  Real quick and dirty: after I posted that WrestleCrap was protesting the Grammys, due to Jive Soul Bro winning NOTHING 25 years ago, a number of you on Facebook agreed, at least tongue in cheek. I ask, besides Slick’s classic ditty, what are some of the best themes sung by the actual wrestlers/managers themselves?...

Curtain Jerker, 2/7/13: Reducing WWE

15 Submitted by on Thu, 07 February 2013, 08:00
  After TNA made the decision to scale back their live PPVs to just 4 a year, that opens the door to the possibility of WWE doing the same. This is especially true if they can pull off this network idea once and for all, and turn a number of their lesser-bought PPVs into once-a-month free shows (which will seem Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker, 2/5/13: Wrestling’s Pinnacle

Instead of asking you a question, today will be the WrestleCrap equivalent of “movie day”. For this presentation, WrestleCrap acknowledges the Silver Anniversary of The Main Event, professional wrestling’s highest-rated TV program in American history, with a 15.2 rating and 33 million viewers. It was on February 5, 1988, in RD’s hometown of Indianapolis that WWE Champion Hulk Hogan had Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker 2/4/13: Lewis and Benoit

  Among other thoughts of mine, while watching Super Bowl XLVII, I couldn’t help but think about the sheer number of times the cameras panned to Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis….while he was on the sidelines. The NFL, much like WWE, tries to “tell stories” to supplement the action, as a way of using human-interest drek to reach people not necessarily Continue Reading...
