WWE, 2015 When Sheamus made his return after Wrestlemania 31, he broke off in a new direction, turning heel by attacking the beloved Daniel Bryan… …and sporting a new, dumb haircut that fans weren’t shy about ridiculing. Now decidedly a bully, the 6’4” Sheamus targeted the shorter men of WWE whom he felt were, pardon the pun, not in his Continue Reading...

Nickelodeon/WWF, 1989 With two former wrestlers like Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan handling announcing duties for years in the WWF, constantly at odds, don’t you find it odd that they never squared off in the ring to settle their differences? Why, Michael Cole was barely a year into his insufferable jerk persona before he and Jerry Lawler had a series Continue Reading...

Those same people will tell you that Starrcade was NWA and WCW’s biggest pay-per-view every year. But unlike Wrestlemania, Starrcade often fell victim to bizarre promotional ideas that transformed the show into one giant gimmick. Starrcade ’89 consisted solely of two round-robin tournaments Continue Reading...

Induction: Bret & Owen on Honey, I Shrunk The Kids – The Harts team with the Kidshrinkers

Syndicated TV, 1998 For me, the tag team of Bret & Owen Hart is one of the most frustrating “what ifs” in wrestling. Despite having such individual technical skill and natural chemistry, the two most famous of Stu and Helen’s boys only tagged a handful of times, including a great match against the Steiner Brothers seen only on Coliseum video. Continue Reading...
