TNA, 2009 For years, TNA/Impact Wrestling has been considered by many (especially on this site) to be the spiritual successor to WCW.

WCW, 1995  This past Sunday was WWE’s fifteenth annual pay-per-view dedicated to anything-goes hardcore wrestling. Originally called One Night Stand, it was officially renamed in 2009 to “Extreme Rules”, which better conveyed the event’s theme while also sounding really dumb. In practice, Extreme Rules is just like any other pay-per-view but with a few more gimmick matches than usual – Continue Reading...
