• Top 10 Observations From The WWE Flintstones Movie

    The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age SmackDown will be out on March 17th.

    WWE is teaming with another classic cartoon to release a straight to video film. Last time, it was a movie with Scooby-Doo that was a fun time as listed in the Top 10 Observations from the Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery Movie post.

    Considering how well received and the fun that was had making that post, I decided to dedicate one breaking down the best WWE related moments from the Stone Age Smackdown.

    1. CM Punk and Mark Henry steal the show

    flintstonescmpunkhenry

    CM Punk is the lead villain in the movie with Mark Henry as his humorous sidekick. They have the best scenes in the movie by a mile. It’s a shame we never got to see heel CM Punk with Mark Henry as his enforcer. WWE Studios hates money or else we would have had a Phil Brooks + Mark Henry buddy cop film by now.

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Let’s knock this out and name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!

    Ah, here we are again. What a wonderful time to exist! I’ve been hard at work counting the votes and this week we have a real BIG winner.

    I spent this week recapping past winners and I’ve noticed that lately you all are showing your wide range of love. We’ve had all sorts of winners and this week you continue to show tall people the love.

    BigShowSWOTW

    The Big Show is The Sexy Wrestler of The Week! He may be nothing but an annoyance but we sure do love to look at him. Those big hands and great taste in wrestling attire. Camo is timeless! Wars are happening all of the time. People are always needing to hide. It’s just life and The Big Show gets that. He’s a real strong man with a precious face. He’s also very multidimensional.

    big-show_sexy

    He’s been very sensual since an early age. Look at that jacket! Look at that stance! He probably received a plethora of eyes looking at him this night but with style like that he’s probably really used to it.

    big_show_fired

    He wears his emotions on his sleeves and that’s endearing. This man isn’t afraid to shed his tears at the drop of a hat. He has strong feelings about everything and will show you exactly how much things mean to him. Admirable.

    big_show_suck_it

     

    He’s a real jokester. Look at him going out and being the life of the party and even a little, dare I say, dirty. Everyone loves a goofball and Big Show will bring that trait with him every where.

    That’s it for this week but please dwell on how much The Big Show means to you for the rest of the week. He deserves it. He really does.

    7/1/2008

    * The quarter hour ratings were released for this week’s WWE Raw and there’s some good news for CM Punk. The highest rated segment of the show by far was a 4.12 for the overrun featuring new World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk’s first title defense against JBL. WWE shook things up with the draft and followed up with a strong show with new faces on top. Some ratings momentum could secure somebody like Punk in a top position.

    this-or-that

    This Or That (2/24/2015)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Will Bray Wyatt face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31?

    Yes – 80%, No – 20%

    Which era of Shawn Michaels did you prefer more?

    2000’s – 68%, 90’s – 32%

    Better NXT women’s wrestler?

    Sasha Banks – 72%, Charlotte – 28%

    Better 80’s film?

    Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – 51%, Back to the Future – 49%

    Who are you more interested to see at Wrestlemania: Sting or The Undertaker?

    Who do you care about seeing more?

    The Dead Man and The Old Man

    Tim:

    I’m really not excited about either and I’m a life-long Sting fan. I was willing to look over his age and be excited for him to get his Wrestlemania moment and retire but WWE has done almost everything to suck the nostalgia out of seeing Sting. They give him horrible theme music and kind of act like they don’t really know how to present his character other than “silence, bat and face paint.” That being said, I really don’t give one shit about The Undertaker at this point. He lost his streak in a bad match to a part-time player just for the moment and now will wrestle someone who probably won’t even get a good match out of him. At least I have hope Triple H will do what he can to take Sting through a decent match.

    Sting

    Joey:

    I’ve noticed something on social media. Long time wrestling fans who watched Sting in the 90’s seem to be underwhelmed at Sting’s highly anticipated WWE debut. Newer fans unfamiliar with him come off as more impressed. I’m more of the former. Sting just doesn’t feel special to me. Hulk Hogan appearing to sell breast cancer awareness t-shirts still feels like a bigger deal.

    There’s more curiosity in Undertaker. Last year was rough for the old man (or one of the old men in this case) but I want to see at least see how he rebounds from it. This could either be a legendary performance or Michael Jordan coming back to play for the Washington Wizards types of bad.

    Undertaker

    Tom:

    My expectations for Steve “The Stingman” Borden and Mr. Michelle McCool are rock bottom, which I’m sure will help. Undertaker looked absolutely dreadful in every way last year, and I doubt another year away is going to help matters much. WWE’s presentation of Sting is pretty uninspiring. It’s not completely awful, but there’s just little things they could be doing to try and maintain his mystique a little more that they’re not bothering with. His stupid old man hair and his dumb jackets and his stupid new theme… they’re all little things, but there’s enough of them to really kill my disinterest.

    I think all odds are on the Stinger being thoroughly mediocre at ‘Mania, whereas, like Joey said, ‘Taker seems more likely to be something amazing or something absolutely dreadful. Can’t wait to find out! At least he’s in there with Bray Wyatt, who’s only ever had terrific feuds and PPV matches. OH WAIT.

    Undertaker

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Life is Hell. Let’s name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week and make it a little better.

    Another week of me wondering why you all vote for the people you do. Another week of me realizing there are a whole lot of people who find a certain wrestler sexy and that maybe I am the odd one.

    Going to go ahead and lay this out here. These are your votes added up. This is on you.

    SWOTWKane

    The Sexy Wrestler of The Week is The Corporate Demon Kane. As I thought this was strange I decided to search the internet to see if this was a thing people really feel about this man. I had a feeling I was being trolled again but I WAS WRONG. Kane being sexy to many people is very much a thing. The first thing I found was this magnificent Youtube video. From the content to the description to the comments we now all know that people very much think Kane is sexy.

    Let me be clear. It’s not just a Youtube video that helps prove this point. People make sensual Kane backgrounds for your computer screens if that is what you need. People love Kane and his looks. That is actually pretty cool. Everyone deserves to be sexy. I will go as far as to say everyone IS sexy. Yes, even you… but mostly me.

    WWE Fastlane Preview and Predictions

    “Fastlane is one word, pal.” – Vince McMahon

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeySplashwater, @TimWelcomed, @IndianDeathlock and @TomBlargh.

    The Usos w/Naomi vs. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd w/Nattie for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    Cesaro and Tyson Kidd are obviously excellent. The Usos are probably the most underrated wrestlers in WWE right now. Naomi and Nattie are doing good work adding to this feud. I love this. I understand there will probably be a 4 team tag title match at Wrestlemania to get more people on the card but I’d love for these to have a straight up rematch on Wrestlemania with 5-10 minutes to steal the show. This will likely be the match of the night.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: The Usos win.

    Tim:

    This is WWE Fastlane. It’s all about revving engines the engines of the WWE Universe and I definitely think this match-up between these speedsters will do just that! The Usos are like NASCAR cars (NASCARS? Is that the thing?) They are fun to watch and fast but definitely have some restrictor plates holding them back and keeping them the on same level as the others. Tyson Kid is like a fast car. He’s really good and entertaining. Cesaro is a classic muscle car that only gets better with time. I think I may have mixed up muscle cars and wine there but I’m sticking with it. This will be a fun match.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Cesaro and Tyson Kidd win.

    Deathlock:

    AWESOME. As much as it feels like “Oh, another Usos match” (the tag team problem in WWE is not the Usos’ fault) every time an Usos match happens, this one will be fun. That segment in the restaurant when Nattie and Naomi were trying to go on a double date was the best piece of non-ring programming on WWE television in a decade. “I thought you meant like Canadian doubles in tennis.” “You gotta tell me that Japan story.” “Fact. We don’t have some stupid catch phrase.” “Come on, nobody likes what the Usos do.”  BRAWL. Why does Jimmy call everyone Uce? What does that mean? Enlighten me, internet. If the match is half as good as this segment, it’s five stars.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: TAKE IT, CESAROGUN.

    Tom:

    First of all, the name of the show is “WWE Race Cars”, get it right! Also, is this on the preshow or the main show? I’ve not been paying attention at all, oh well.

    Anyway, Cesaro and old Tyson Kidd are a good laugh, though The Usos… well, The Usos remain The Usos. That’s not a diss, I like them! It’s just tough to work up energy for their matches right now, though Naomi being added as their manager is p. good stuff. She seems like a lovely girl.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: The Usos win.

    Art Is Wrestling: TJ Hawke

    Not to be mistaken for the similarly titled Mike Quackenbush promotion or Colt Cabana podcast, Art is Wrestling trawls the Internet to showcase some of the best wrestling art we can find.

    I consider myself something of an artiste. All around the world, I am well-known for my glorious contributions to exhibits, galleries, and museums. I’ve given lectures in the finest halls of the most prestigious institutions. In case it is not clear, I am a VERY big deal.

    As such, it’s high time I give something back to you…the people. My portfolio has been sent to many famous graphic design companies in the world, and now you all get to see it.

    “Buying An Unknown Product: King of Trios 2014″

    Occasionally, an artiste such as myself, is commissioned to produce a piece of art like in the days of yore. JP Nichols, an international patron, gave me an idea of what he wanted, and I then produced the magic seen above.

    Dirt Sheet History: June 2008

    Take a trip back to a memorable timeline in sports entertainment with the most important stories reported as fact in the journalistic world of pro wrestling dirt sheets.

    Following the timeline of the last Dirt Sheet History looking back at May 2008, we get a glimpse into the top scoops from June of 2008 as we read Dirt Sheet History.

    6/1/2008

    * Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler lobbied hard to do a topless scene in the movie Mercy, an upcoming film by writer Scott Caan, but director Patrick Hoelck nixed the idea. Hoelck soon changed his mind and okayed the scene with Keibler, but Keibler nixed the idea herself. Keibler was then dropped from the film altogether. The role has since been given to a “no-name” actress.

    6/2/2008

    * At last Tuesday’s SmackDown taping, a fan jumped the barricade and punched one of the Edgeheads. Chavo Guerrero’s bodyguard Bam Neely jumped in and pummeled the guy before security arrived to break it up. Had the show been live, the incident probably would have been visible on camera, but WWE managed to completely edit it out of Friday’s broadcast.

    6/4/2008

    * The recently released Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry book has an account from a former WWE writer claiming that Stephanie McMahon would “relentlessly” badmouth her brother Shane McMahon to pretty much anyone who would listen during his time in the company. The former WWE writer also notes that Stephanie can be really confrontational at times. Here is the passage from the book concerning this:

    “Stephanie’s not as smart as she thinks she is,” says one former WWE writer. “You can’t tell her a damn thing; she was confrontational about her stupidity, like coming up to you and saying ‘I know you think I don’t deserve this job!’ To be honest, put fake (breasts) on a rattlesnake and that’s Stephanie. She’s a conniving little (c-word) who I personally saw bury her brother Shane relentlessly to people in the industry, I mean just (expletive) all over her own brother. She’s disgusting; she’s got that Lady Macbeth ego to her.”

    Who will leave Wrestlemania 31 as champ?

    Anyone else – 52%, Roman Reigns – 48%

    Better tag team break-up tease?

    Miz and Sandow – 53%, Gold and Star Dust– 47%

    Better guest on the Steve Austin Podcast?

    Vince McMahon – 83%, Triple H – 17%

    Better video game series?

    Mortal Kombat – 57%, Street Fighter – 43%

    Will Bray Wyatt face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31: Yes or No?

    Is The Undertaker who Bray Wyatt is referencing in his promos?

    wyattundertaker

    Tim:

    I don’t see this as a good idea or something that really makes sense. I figure Vince is all excited about putting the two supernatural characters against each other. I think it will happen although it doesn’t seem like it will this late in the build-up to Wrestlemania. It doesn’t even look like they know for sure if The Undertaker will be back yet and that’s kind of absurd. The streak is over and Bray Wyatt isn’t that great. There’s nothing here for me so of course this will go down.

    Yes

    Joey:

    The rumors about expected Wrestlemania matches during “Wrestlemania season” are almost always true but I just can’t see how they can make this match happen. The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak ending is arguably the greatest long term storyline in WWE history.

    How can you just have ‘Taker return after finally losing only to not be involved in a story with the person who defeated him? It just would make zero sense for The Dead Man not to get his revenge and move on to someone else. Bray Wyatt has done a very good job over the last month but it would also feel like a step down for Undertaker in a match where it would be need to be its biggest for him to return after losing. I just can’t see it. Wyatt has to be referring to someone else as a fake out. Maybe someone else on the roster that will be getting a push out of this?

    No

    Tom:

    The idea of Bray Wyatt faking us all out and targeting someone other than ‘Taker is very appealing, but I can’t imagine who else it could be and not feel like a total wet fart. Also, WWE isn’t generally that creative or restrained – if it WAS a fake-out, I’m pretty sure we’d have heard Cole and the other commentary knobs referencing Undertaker by name after Wyatt’s promos. Anyway. I think the match will be kinda bad but YES, Undertaker WILL wrestle Wyatt at Wrestlemania. Hopefully he has all the surgeries he needs by next year so he can have his actual final ‘Mania match with Bryan and it can be something fantastic.

    Yes

    Will Bray Wyatt face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31?

    • Yes (80%, 40 Votes)
    • No (20%, 10 Votes)

    Total Voters: 50
