WWE Hall of Famers Who Are Worthy of Having a Statue

Andre the Giant Statue Bruno Sammartino Statue 2 Ultimate Warrior Statue

Dusty Rhodes Statue

Ric Flair Statue

WWE has made life-size statues of WWE Hall of Famers Andre the Giant, Bruno Sammartino, The Ultimate Warrior, Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair because of the significant impact they have made in the wrestling world. All statues are now displayed at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, CT. Below are a list of WWE Hall of Famers that I feel have also made a significant impact in the wrestling world and are also worthy of having a statue.

 

Hulk Hogan

 

Bret “The Hitman” Hart

 

“Macho Man” Randy Savage

 

Shawn Michaels

 

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin

Where There’s Wrestling, There’s Backstabbers

On this week’s edition of WWE Countdown on the WWE Network, the top ten back stabbings in history were counted down. My prediction for number one was either the infamous “Montreal Screw Job” that took place at Survivor Series 1997 between Mr. McMahon, Shawn Michaels, and Bret Hart or when Shawn Michaels super kicked his Rockers tag team partner Marty Jannetty and threw him through a plate-glass window. Well, I was right on the money because the “Montreal Screw Job” was listed at number two and Shawn Michaels’ attack on Marty Jannetty was listed at number one. While I thought the ones that made the list were good ones, there are also some good ones that I think could have made the list. For instance, I think the night that Stone Cold Steve Austin aligned himself with Mr. McMahon at WrestleMania 17 was a good one. Another good one is when Christian turned his back on Edge back in 2001. One thing about that betrayal is the fact that while Christian had every intention of skyrocketing his career and plummeting Edge’s, it ultimately backfired because from that point on, Edge was on his way to becoming a very successful singles …

WWE Goes “Beyond the Ring”

Beyond the Ring

As many people may know, the WWE Network is up and running. There are definitely some interesting original programs on there. One of those programs is called “Beyond the Ring”. This program shows behind-the-scenes documentaries from DVDs/Blue Ray discs courtesy of WWE Home Video. Below are the documentaries that the WWE Network has aired thus far.

 

Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart

 

This is the documentary that gives the inside scoop on the classic rivalry between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart both inside and outside of the ring. One interesting fact people will find out is the fact that the animosity between these two started quite some time before the infamous “Montreal Screw Job” took place. I am definitely glad that they ended up patching things up in the end.

 

Stone Cold Steve Austin

 

This is a documentary that tells the story about Stone Cold’s rise to fame. It goes back to his early days in WCCW and USWA to his average rise in WCW and ECW all the way to his rise to superstardom in WWE. There were definitely a lot of interesting things shown in this, but there is one thing that wasn’t shown that I wish …

WWE Raw 5-27-13: Bret Hart Appreciation Night

This Memorial Day edition of Raw was dedicated to all the men and women serving in the U.S. Military. The show began with WWE Champion John Cena coming out to address Ryback’s challenge to an Ambulance Match at the upcoming Payback Pay-Per-View event. Cena announced that at Payback, he will defend his championship against Ryback in a Three Stages of Hell Match. A Three Stages of Hell Match consists of a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match with with each fall having a stipulation. Cena said that the first fall’s stipulation will be a Lumberjack Match, the second fall a Tables Match, and, if necessary, the third fall will be the very stipulation Ryback challenged Cena to, an Ambulance Match. Ryback then came out and accepted the challenge. So, it’s official, at Payback, Cena will defend his championship against Ryback in a Three Stages of Hell Match. After Ryback accepted, Paul Heyman and his newest client, Curtis Axel, came out and issued a challenge to Cena for a non-title one-on-one match for the main event of the evening, which Cena accepted. Also, the WWE Universe were given the opportunity to vote on the WWE App on which role The Miz would play in …

WWE Raw 4-1-12: The Road to WrestleMania 29 Heats Up

Things certainly heated up for the road to WrestleMania 29 on this week’s Raw. Both WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his WrestleMania challenger John Cena vowed victory on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Also, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels payed a visit to WWE on this edition of Raw announcing that he will be in WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H’s corner in his match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. It was also announced that the Intercontinental Championship match between champion Wade Barrett and challenger The Miz will take place during the WrestleMania 29 Pre-Show. Also, it was revealed that soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer Trish Status tweeted that she wants Stephanie McMahon to induct her into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6, 2013 at Madison Square Garden. Stephanie tweeted that she gladly accepts the honor. Lastly, the show ended with The Undertaker vowing to destroy CM Punk at WrestleMania 29; then, it was the return of The Druids…or so we thought. It turned out to all be a trap when Paul Heyman emerged impersonating the late Paul Bearer. Then, when Undertaker came to attack the phony Druids, CM Punk emerged as one of …
