My Royal Rumble Hopes/Predictions

Royal Rumble 2015

Kickoff Match

The New Day (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston & Big E) vs. Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd

The trio of Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd has formed an alliance with one another under the common purpose of feeling that WWE keeps overlooking them. While they may have a good argument for that, I personally feel that all three members of The New Day are being overlooked as well. Instead of being bitter and complaining about it like Rose, Cesaro & Kidd do, however, The New Day is spreading the positive message that as individuals, they are great, but together, they can be even better. Not only do I hope that The New Day comes out victorious in this match, but I hope that all three members of The New Day end up being participants in the Royal Rumble Match as well.

 

Paige & Natalya vs. The Bella Twins (WWE Divas Champion Nikki & Brie)

Paige & Natalya have recently formed an alliance against common enemies The Bella Twins. All four of these divas are current star cast members of WWE reality show Total Divas. One particular thing that has been bothering me about the recent reunion …

NXT Has Made a Huge Impact in WWE

NXT_Wrestling

Whether it was the original version of NXT where an NXT Rookie was paired with a WWE Pro or NXT the current developmental system of WWE, many of today’s WWE Superstars on the main roster have come out of NXT. Some of these superstars have made it to the top, some have made a huge impact and some still have yet to make their presence felt. I am very confident that there will be many more superstars to come out of NXT in the near future.

 

NXT Alumni

 

The following superstars listed below have managed to land spots on the main roster. Some have gone on to become top stars, some are still working their way to the top and some even still spend part of their time down at NXT.

 

 

Adam Rose and some of his Rosebuds – Adam Rose owns numerous victories over former World Champion Jack Swagger and The Rosebuds continue to follow him.

 

AJ Lee – 3-time WWE Divas Champion and Slammy Award Winner.

 

Alex Riley – Owns victories over 3 former World Champions and current panelist for the Raw Pre-Show and for Kick-Off shows before the WWE Pay-Per-View events.

How John Cena Can Manipulate The Authority

Team Cena

Seth Rollins Gets The Authority Back Into Power

 

As many most likely know, on the last Raw of 2014, Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins blackmailed John Cena, the only person who had the power to bring The Authority back into power, into doing just that when Rollins threatened to permanently cripple WWE Hall of Famer Edge. On the very first Raw of 2015, The Authority was officially back in power. They wasted no time in throwing their weight around. First, they put former Team Cena members Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan into matches with odds stacked against them. Towards the end of Raw, The Authority welcomed John Cena to the ring to show their “appreciation” for him. The Authority then welcomed out Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan. Shortly afterward, The Authority once again threw their weight around and fired Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan. The Authority then took Raw home by saying that The Authority is back in power, three men had just lost their livelihood, and that everybody can thank John Cena for all of it.

WWE Needs to Put Zack Ryder Back into the Championship Picture

Zack Ryder US Champion

Not since 2012 has Zack Ryder gotten a championship opportunity, let alone a championship. His career really started to take off in 2011; he gained a huge fan following and he won his first major singles championship, the United States Championship, at the final WWE Pay-Per-View of the year. About a month later into January 2012, he lost the championship under controversial circumstances. Zack Ryder would go on that year to have a match at WrestleMania 28 and earn an opportunity at the U.S. Championship at the Night of Champions Pay-Per-View. Since then, however, Ryder started to fade away more and more from the championship picture, as well as win less matches. I think it is total crap the way WWE gave Ryder the push that he had worked so hard to get and then snatch it right away from him. WWE needs to give this push back to him. Ryder is currently recovering from an injury, but when he comes back, WWE needs to start pushing him again and have him either regain the U.S. Championship or win the Intercontinental Championship for the first time in his career. Bottom line, WWE gave and then took away something special from …

WWE SuperSmackdown LIVE Invades Grand Rapids, Michigan

Erick Rowan Splash

Introduction

 

This week, I was in attendance for both WWE Main Event and Smackdown, which took place at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Before both events got underway, there was a bonus match between current rivals Sin Cara and Curtis Axel. These two rivals have had a series of matches against one another as of late and Sin Cara has come out victorious every single time, including this one.

 

Main Event

 

The first event of the night was Main Event. There was one backstage segment that I found pretty hilarious. Paige seemed to be impressed with how good Erick Rowan seems to be at playing chess; it was recently learned that Rowan has a pretty high IQ. Titus O’Neil then approached Rowan and did not seem impressed. Rowan then challenged Titus to play him in a game; after Titus made a move he said “King Me!” Apparently, Titus was not aware of the fact that that rule only applies to checkers and not chess. After Titus knocked over the chess pieces and walked off in a fit of rage, Rowan then picked up a piece and said “Checkmate!” Later on in the main event between Rowan …

WWE’s Beloved Heroes Gone Bad 2014

Seth-Rollins-Evolution

Introduction

 

WWE consists of many superstars that are beloved by the entire WWE Universe. Sadly, throughout the entire year of 2014, some of these beloved heroes have shocked the entire WWE Universe by turning their backs on them.

 

Seth Rollins

The WWE Universe embraced one of the most dominant factions in The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) earlier this year. Then, one night on Raw, Rollins shocked the world when he attacked his two Shield cohorts and aligned himself with the despised Authority.

 

The Bella Twins

 

As the two respective lovers of two of WWE’s most beloved superstars, John Cena and Daniel Bryan, The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie) were loved and adored by the WWE Universe. Then, at this year’s SummerSlam, Nikki shocked everybody when she attacked her sister and helped the evil Stephanie McMahon pick up a victory over Brie. After months of being at one another’s throats, the twins had a match at the Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View event to determine who would become the winner’s personal assistant for 30 days, which Nikki won. One month later at Survivor Series, after being put through hell by her sister for the last …

Worthy WWE Hall of Famers

wwe-hall-of-fame-logo-HOF

The WWE Hall of Fame is the most prestigious honor in all of WWE. There are many wrestlers, managers, announcers and even celebrities that are in the WWE Hall of Fame today. Names like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, The Fabulous Moolah, Trish Stratus and Mr. T (Celebrity Wing) have had the honor of being inducted. There are also special WWE Hall of Famers who are recipients of the “Warrior Award”. The “Warrior Award” is in honor of the late, great WWE Hall of Famer Ultimate Warrior, who stated that people who have exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who live life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of Ultimate Warrior, should have a place in the WWE Hall of Fame. One WWE Hall of Famer who is a recipient of the “Warrior Award” is the late Connor “The Crusher” Michalek, an 8-year-old boy who lost his life to a type of cancer called medulloblastoma. There are also some people who are worthy of this honor, but have yet to be inducted. There are even famous referees that are worthy of being inducted. Below is a list of names …

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.…

Greatest Tag Teams in Wrestling History

Edge & Christian

I came across an article that ranked WWE’s top 50 greatest tag teams; the article was published on WWE.com on October 1, 2013. This article only consisted of tag teams from WWE’s history, which means that there were no tag teams from WCW’s, ECW’s or any other wrestling company’s history. Tag teams that made the list were teams like The Steiners, The Brothers of Destruction, The Rockers, The Dudley Boyz, Legion of Doom, The Hardy Boyz, Demolition, The Hart Foundation, Edge & Christian, just to name a few. The article also features a link to a photo gallery showing photos of some of the tag teams that made the list, including one tag team that just barely missed making the list. Below are lists of tag teams that did not make the list that I feel are some of the greatest tag teams of all time; not just throughout WWE history, but the entire history of wrestling. I highly encourage the people who are reading this article to list some tag teams as well.

 

Harlem Heat (Stevie Ray & Booker T)

 

The Public Enemy (Johnny Grunge & Rocco Rock)

 

Rob Van Dam & Sabu
