Ah, Kurt’s baby.

…Anyway, I think his work in WWE/WCW more than adequately justifies this. He’s the definition of a professional, and one of the best pure heels ever. His TNA work as champion, I think, went over poorly mostly because Triple H was doing the same thing on Raw, only he never put over exciting new talent like Styles, who clearly has stood the passage of time. It’s well past time to give Jarrett some credit.


It is inevitable that Jarrett breaks a guitar over Elias’ head at WrestleMania.


Would be epic! All he has to do is avoid using phrases like “slapnuts,” and I think he’s good.




There was a brief moment, a few years back now, where it really looked like she’d got herself together. It’s a shame because she was one of the best heel valets in the business but left WWF just as the Attitude era got going.



One of the Usos received a very similar charge a few weeks ago but their push continued regardless. Obviously Jeff has his history, though. Interesting to see if this leads to some sort of punishment at a time WWE is crying out for star power.

That is an incredible article.

Also, as yet unannounced, some sort of confrontation or fight or match between John Cena and The Undertaker… probably…


That’s a really stacked card. Trying to watch the whole thing sounds exhausting.


It really does. My friend’s gone to Wrestlemania this year and got the full fan access pass so as well as the marathon slog that is Mania and its pre-show, he was at the 5 hour plus Hall of Fame event last night and has tickets to Raw, Smackdown, NXT and I think another night of taping or a house-show (or a RoH show) all within a week and… it sounds like too much.


Yeah, there is a 2 hour pre-show with the battle royals and cruiserweight match, then the main show will likely be five hours at least.


I went to WM a few years back. It was a lot of fun, but I was only there for about 4 1/2 hours and that was more than enough. Not sure how people can handle the full 7 hour show this year, let alone all the other stuff they have going on this week.
