Five Best American Pro Wrestling Tropes

pro-wrestling-match-1938-web

I see others, including my buddy Howie at Under Scoop Fire & the owner at my local comic book shop, going crazy-go-nuts talking rasslin’. It took me some time to write something about that goofy psuedosport. I present five tropes, with as little research on TV Tropes as humanly possible, that are fundamental to American professional wrestling. They’re listed in no particular order.

Also, I don’t watch wrestling full-time anymore, but I’m sure someone will use the comments box to shout examples to disprove the list and attempt to shame from ever using the Internet again. Continue reading “Five Best American Pro Wrestling Tropes”

The THQ era of WWE-licensed games is at an end. The rumored successor is Take-Two (2K Games), and I’m looking forward to a new take on the WWE presentation.

Cena goes out of his way for the fans, especially the fans at the Make-a-Wish Foundation. His eye was on championship gold even when his best childhood prize was made of cardboard. When we look back at wrestling history, John Cena is the man defining this grand current era of grappling. Continue reading “John Cena Humiliates the Rock Once and For All at WrestleMania 28”

The Rock WILL Beat John Cena at WrestleMania!

John Cena & The Rock

The Rock versus John Cena. The crowd is electrified with excitement at seeing The Rock whoops John Cena’s candy-ass in Miami: a Rock-Bottom followed by a People’s Elbow and then an STFU to finish him off (and give him some advice). Dust stains the air around the ring…and when it clears? The Rock is standing victorious on the turnbuckle with one arm raised.

OK. That would be the perfect ending to WrestleMania for me. That’s because I’ve been a fan of Dwayne Johnson’s since he was “The Blue Chipper”, Rocky Maivia. Continue reading “The Rock WILL Beat John Cena at WrestleMania!”
