Rusev, Lana and Bobby Lashley have the greatest storyline in pro wrestling at the moment. That's right. You heard me. That nonsensical, ridiculous, absurd, sleazy, borderline incomprehensible storyline is better than anything else going on in all of wrestling. The internet, will of course, tell you different. I'm not even positive what is going on, … Continue reading Wednesday Night Bores
Ocean's Eleven is one of the best action/heist movies of the 2000's. With George Clooney and Brad Pitt in their prime, it was funny, fast-paced and entertaining all the way through. The scene where George Clooney explains to Brad Pitt why they should rob 3 casinos for $150 million is one of my favorite film … Continue reading One Last (Screw)Job: Vince, HBK, Bret & The Final Act of Kayfabe

A common refrain across the internet is that WWE has "messed up" with Bayley. This is a universally accepted narrative in professional wrestling. Bayley is MONEY. How does WWE not see that?! The kids should love her! She's so likable! I find this to be unequivocally false.
In 2001, at Wrestlemania X-7 (totally more edgy than that lame number "17"), Stone Cold Steve Austin nearly made Jim Ross have a brain aneurysm by "SHAKING HANDS WITH THE DEVIL HIMSELF!!!", Vince McMahon. His hated rival, of course.
Vince McMahon came out to Monday Night Raw, early in 2019, along with his family (Stephanie, Shane-o-Mac and Triple H) and declared that after Baron Corbin tanked the ratings as GM [honestly hysterical to blame your company failings on a fictional character], there would be a new GM in charge. That GM has made a ton of God-awful decisions, causing ratings to completely nosedive, apathetic crowds, and 20th Century FOX to go into a full-on panic.
