Headlies: Absolutely Nothing Happened This Week

1 Submitted by on Mon, 20 June 2022, 08:00
New York, NY – For the first time in recent memory, nothing of interest happened in the world of professional wrestling. Despite multiple live shows in various promotions, it was just a boring week.  Amazingly, the past seven days were totally unremarkable. No Superstars were unceremoniously released. There were no rumors of unhappy wrestlers threatening to jump to another company. Continue Reading...

Induction: The first Casino Battle Royale – All Elite WrestleCrap

AEW, 2019 Two weeks ago, RD emailed me with a special assignment: WrestleCrap’s first-ever induction from AEW.  Apparently, a lot of people out there think we’re somehow biased in favor of All Elite Wrestling. While that’s plainly false, it was up to me to put such rumors to rest. But what from AEW was bad enough to warrant an induction Continue Reading...

Stampede Wrestling, 1981 For over a year, I’ve heard the same complaints about us never inducting something from that “other” promotion.  Some have claimed we never will due to some errant notion that we don’t ever see anything wrong there, or that we are on someone’s payroll behind the scenes.   I think today’s induction will show that we’re listening Continue Reading...

Theatrical short, 1937 If there’s one thing I love to do on this site, it’s dig up old, old wrestling. A Superman wrestling episode from 1952? A women’s wrestling movie from 1951? Nah, I said old wrestling. Wrestling from back when Mae Young was a rookie. Wrestling from back when World War I wasn’t called that yet.  It’s good fortune that Continue Reading...

WWF, 1986 The term “hoss fight” gets thrown around a lot these days it seems, but in reality, such a thing is nothing new in pro wrestling.  In fact, it’s what the business was largely built upon – two giant meaty men clobbering each other with reckless abandon.  And truth be told, we are pretty fortunate with what we get Continue Reading...

WWE, 2020 The second the War Raiders showed up on Raw as the Viking Experience, they could never be taken seriously again.  My only explanation for this unforced error is that Vince heard the name “Ebony Experience” during Harlem Heat’s Hall of Fame speech, and a light bulb went off in his brain. Or an aneurysm. Either way, the intimidating Continue Reading...
