Real-Life Wrestling Tag Teams

Real-Life Wrestling Tag Teams 2

Throughout wrestling history, there have been many tag teams. Some are very memorable, some are not. A lot of them are storyline tag teams, but did you know that there are also real-life tag teams. What this means is that there are two wrestling Superstars who are friends, couples or family members in real life. Below is the list of real-life tag teams. Some have made it into the storyline, some have not.

 

The Chickbusters (AJ Lee & Kaitlyn)

 

Team Aries (Austin Aries & Roderick Strong)

Make the IMPACT! Grand Championship Great

IMPACT! Grand Championship

Last year, IMPACT! Wrestling created a new championship called the IMPACT! Grand Championship. What separates this championship from the other championships in IMPACT! Wrestling is that every time the championship is on the line, the match can go up to three rounds. If each round reaches the time limit, then ringside judges determine who has the most points and whoever has the most at the end of all three rounds walks away the winner and with the championship; however, if a pinfall or submission were to be made by any one of the two competitors at anytime during any of the three rounds, then that competitor would win the match and walk out as champion right then and there. A lot of times, I have heard people say that the outcome of the match should not be determined by judges, but rather by pinfall or submission and I completely agree. If IMPACT! Wrestling wants to separate this championship from all of their other ones, then I think the best way to do that is by making every IMPACT! Grand Championship Match a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. IMPACT! Wrestling has been using the slogan “Make IMPACT! Great.” Well, I truly believe that …

Wrestling Hall of Famers Cannot Be Heels

wwe-hall-of-fame-logo-HOF TNA-HOF

There is one particular thing in the world of wrestling today that really bothers me. There are some Hall of Famers that are currently heels. The problem with this is that Hall of Famers are supposed to be setting a good example for the next generation of wrestlers. Who else is going to teach some of today’s young punks in wrestling a lesson in respect and humility? All of this applies to any Wrestling Hall of Fame throughout history (e.g. WWE Hall of Fame, TNA Hall of Fame, etc.). Currently, Hall of Famers including Paul Ellering, The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray & D-Von) and last I checked, Jeff Jarrett, are heels in the wrestling companies that they are currently working for. Hall of Famers are supposed to be people that fans can respect and if they are heels, it makes it very hard for fans to respect them. Therefore, Paul Ellering, The Dudley Boyz and Jeff Jarrett need to be turned into faces ASAP. Bottom line, it is irrational for Hall of Famers to be heels.…

Taryn Terrell Is Not Fit to Be a Heel

Taryn Terrell Knockouts Champion

Nearly three months ago, current TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Taryn Terrell shocked the world by aligning herself with The Dollhouse (Marti Bell & Jade), thus turning heel in the process. This is something that I take great issue with. Prior to her alignment with The Dollhouse, Taryn was a sweet, gorgeous woman with long, flowing blonde hair and a winning smile; she was your typical girl next door. In addition to all that, she was also a strong, passionate, independent and hard-working woman who took crap from nobody. She is also a leading Hollywood stuntwoman. Bottom line, all of this made her the perfect face. Now, TNA has gone and ruined all that by turning Taryn into this cunning and underhanded leader of The Dollhouse, who act like a bunch of Barbie Dolls and are making an embarrassment out of TNA’s Knockouts Division. Taryn is someone who should be taking a stand against women like The Dollhouse. I would also like to point out that the new theme music that Taryn uses along with the other Dollhouse members is god awful; it is a huge downgrade from Taryn’s previous theme music. TNA needs to make this right and turn Taryn …

The Greatest Trios in Wrestling History

The Fabulous Freebirds

There have been many trios throughout the history of sports-entertainment. Whether they made significant impacts throughout the entire wrestling world or just in certain companies, these trios have managed to give the fans something to talk about. While some trios have added more members at one time or another, their days as a trio were memorable.

With that being said, here is the list of Superstars who have held every major championship from IMPACT Wrestling except for any of the two World Championships mentioned above.

Taryn Terrell Is Flawless

taryn_terrell__png_by_undertaker02-d6wmseg

There are a lot of great women throughout wrestling history; however, there are some women in particular  that I just cannot get enough of. Amongst these  women is current TNA Knockout Taryn Terrell. Taryn is one of, if not the most, gorgeous women ever to set foot in the wrestling world. She is as sweet as an angel and has the voice of one as well, she is in tremendous shape, has a terrific body, a beautiful face and smile, beautiful long blonde hair and is one of the most athletic women. Every time I see Taryn, she sends my heart fluttering and I am positive that she sends other males’ hearts fluttering as well. I truly believe it is only a matter of time until she finally becomes the TNA Knockout Women’s Champion. Bottom line, there is one word that best describes Taryn Terrell: Flawless.…

Two Successful Factions That featured Four Successful Superstars

fourhorsemen nwo-logo

What do Sting (the real Sting, not the fake Sting); Jeff Jarrett, Lex Luger and Curt Hennig all have in common? They were all, at one time or another, members of two of the most successful factions in wrestling history; The Four Horsemen and The New World Order (nWo). All four of these men have had Hall of Fame worthy careers. In addition to being a multi-time World Champion, Sting was the heart and soul of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). He has changed his looks over the years with his famous face paint and is a TNA Hall of Famer. Jeff Jarrett, who is also a multi-time World Champion, was one of the Co-Founders of Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling, along with his father Jerry Jarrett. Lex Luger is a multi-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and is famous for bodyslamming the 500-plus pound Yokozuna during his WWE tenure; he represented the United States of America against Yokozuna’s anti-American ways. The late, great Curt Hennig is a former AWA World Champion; he made a name for himself under his “Mr. Perfect” persona and is a WWE Hall of Famer. While only two of these four guys may be Hall of Famers, I …

This is a wrestling site that features some very awesome things. For instance, there is a blogs tab that you can click upon and it includes sections that are called “5 (or 10) Thoughts on…”; to specify, 5 or ten thoughts about recent additions of any WWE show are discussed. Also, there is a polls tab to click upon as well; this tab features an archive of polls that have been posted on the site. Finally, here is the icing on the cake; there is a photos tab that features tons and tons of WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts photos. I would definitely recommend people to check out this site.…
