  Welcome to another edition of The Count of 10. Each week, Justin Henry picks the brain of a different wrestling personality, asking a blend of serious inquiries, along with generally irreverent questions.   This week, Count of 10 is graced by the presence of one of wrestling journalism’s great trailblazers, Mr. Bill Apter. For nearly four decades, Bill has photographed Continue Reading...

Curtain Jerker 2/14/13: Cena’s Dirty Laundry

9 Submitted by on Thu, 14 February 2013, 08:00
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

10 Submitted by on Wed, 13 February 2013, 08:00
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

30 Submitted by on Mon, 11 February 2013, 08:00
  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...

Here’s your 2013 Impossibilities Realized Scorecard The Rock is WWE Champion, 10 years after last winning it, and long after we’d thought he’d be used as merely a one-time attraction going forward. Bruno Sammartino has forgone his bitterness toward WWE, agreeing to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. TNA has said bon voyage to the Impact Zone, and Continue Reading...

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...

  So Claire Lynch and her oak-thick acting took home the 2012 Gooker Award. But is it what YOU voted for? Hell, if you listened to the RD and Blade Show, you know I didn’t, and I’ve already expressed my displeasure with you folks that chose Claire over Daniel Bryan’s “Gone in 18 Seconds”. So what DID you vote for? Continue Reading...

19 Submitted by on Thu, 31 January 2013, 08:00
  So we’re a few days removed from CM Punk indignantly ‘jobbing to an elbow drop’ as some have termed it. Looks like the Pipe Bomb fire has died down a bit, and we’ve all accepted the fact that Cena and Rock will headline WrestleMania 29, not the Straight Edge Savior. But all is not lost. Punk’s in it for Continue Reading...
