    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Round Nine

    Brad’s pick: ATHENA

    athena-draft-card

    Brad:

    I first found out about the talented Athena during an episode of Ring of Honor TV. I thought she really connected with the fans in the way that a Colt Cabana or a Kofi Kingston does.

    She has a really cool finisher called ‘The O Face’ which is a diving Stone Cold Stunner. She is full of energy and is a great opposite to a dastardly heel. Continue reading

    WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue One, Page 15

    WCW: The Comic Book was published in the early 90s by Marvel Comics. Nobody in wrestling or comics paid it much attention, and after 12 issues, it was cancelled and lost to the ages. Until now.

    On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, @tomblackett will post a new page of the WCW comic with his comments and we’ll read through it together. We’ll be there for each other, through the good (Vader! The Steiners! Sting! Cactus Jack!) and the (Johnny B.) Badd.

    House Of Glory Videos: Kevin Steen Saves Panda Man

    Kevin Steen, a panda man and your imagination walk into a wrestling ring….

    As seen in the photos earlier this week, Wrestling on Earthling Khristen Wilson (find him on Twitter @khristheunicorn) attended Amazing Red’s House of Glory show featuring many ROH talent.

    Kevin Steen was there. House of Glory student Panda Man was there. This happened.

    Here’s another video of the end of the show featuring Adam “Sexy Wrestler” Cole, Michael Elgin, Roderick Strong and the “king of merchCrimson:

    Awkward Moment Of The Week

    Let’s be honest. Wrestling is weird. This a feature that highlights the pictures, videos, tweets and moments from the wrestling world that feels too weird to be true.

    This week’s awkward moment?  Tammy Sytch‘s Facebook status and comments.

    Match of the Week: The Great Khali vs. Edge, Raw (6/9/2010)

    Many sites have a match of the week but ours is a little different. These matches are the ones that are fun to watch… in the non-traditional way.

    This week, we’ve chosen The Great Khali vs. Edge from Raw on 6/9/2010. Members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett give their (lack of) expertise on the action.

    Part 1: The Match Begins

    we-love-edge

    Tim:

    This begins with Edge acting as only Edge could. Edge uses Khali’s lack of speed against him to get the count-out victory. Then that noise that I have grown to forget strikes. Yes, the Anonymous Raw GM (Hornswaggle) has a message for us. He changes the match to an Over The Tope Rope challenge, because that’s fair. All I can think about is how bad I feel for Edge during all of this.

    typicalROHfan:

    This was the time period in between the book ends of The Great Khali‘s classic runs. The former being the unbeatable monster who destroyed the Undertaker with ease before becoming World Champ and the latter being fartin’ Natalya‘s boyfriend.

    Edge showing his Hall of Fame stature getting an entertaining match out of The Great Khali topping at about 52 seconds. Great match of the week! Thanks guys…. oh no. It’s re-starting! The anonymous Raw GM gives Khali another chance. The GM was revealed to be Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle is now Khali’s BFF. Did WWE use long term stories to devise the odd couple friendship? (No, they didn’t. They just wanted to pair together a tall Indian, a midget, and a farting Hart.)

    Tom:

    Oh my God, I miss Edge so much. Here’s a guy who knew the circumstances he was in and did the best he could. There’s the old quote of ‘[insert great wrestler of your choice here] could have a good match with a broomstick’, and while that might be true for Edge, The Great Khali is no broomstick. A broomstick is at least somewhat mobile and can be tossed around and stuff, whereas poor Khali just moves… very slowly… and you can’t… do anything… with him. So, rather than getting straight to the grapple, Edge does an amazing job doing a hilarious (and sadly accurate!) impresssion of how The Punjabi Playboy (sigh) lumbers around.

    Khali (despite having a big happy grin on his face as he watches Edge’s antics) chases after Edge and loses by count out. Edge looks so happy and pleased with himself at the victory but HEY, remember the anonymous general manager? That’s right, the one that was revealed to be Hornswoggle in a throwaway skit on Raw a couple years later. HA HA HA WE’VE WASTED OUR LIVES CARING ABOUT WRESTLING.

    Seeking to right this injustice of one man winning legitimately, the GM restarts the match as an over-the-top-rope challenge. SPOILERS: This was a mistake!

    4 on 4 Fans: Miss_Dani_Baby, SniperWolfVA, Fucktronics, JeremyExiled

    Welcome to this week’s edition of Four on Four.  As always, we’ve chosen four of the most entertaining and intelligent wrestling fans on Twitter and decided to peer into their minds four questions at a time. Now let’s meet the panel:

    Miss_Dani_Baby: She hates ketchup and might be considered a college graduate.
    Follow her on Twitter.

    SniperWolfVA: Also known as The Butter Bandit, he lives off of only raisins and butter.
    Follow him on Twitter 

    Fucktronics: He likes to get German Suplexed onto beds and has nice scarfs.
    Follow him on Twitter.

    JeremyExiled: He plays the guitar. He does not play the trombone. Once shaved off a guy’s eyebrow.
    Follow him on Twitter.

    1. WWE has the Inferno match, where the ring is surrounded by fire. If you could book a match with the same general gimmick, who would be in the match and what would surround the ring?

    Miss_Dani_Baby:

    I’m going to go with The Miz vs. Zack Ryder with the ring surrounded by faeces. Hell, maybe a ring surrounded by flaming paper bags of feces! Not only would it be fitting of both their gimmicks, but I would genuinely enjoy watching the match hoping that one or both would roll in the shit.

    SniperWolfVA:

    Ghosts. Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt in an Inghosto Match. Every time someone hits the mat a ghost of a dead wrestler will appear on the apron and be able to attack them if they get close. If the ghost of Benoit comes out, after the 63rd slam, it automatically wins the match and can challenge for the belt at Halloween Havoc 2015.

    Fucktronics:

    It would be Layla El vs. Me and the ring would be surrounded by my penis and fried chicken. Don’t even try to tell me that that isn’t exactly what all of you would have said. I think that no matter who wins, I would totally win forever for life always and so I’d never have to have another match or day of living or not living. Time would stop and just kinda go away like Chikara (RIP (FOR NOW (CHIKARA FOR LIFE))) and I wouldn’t even give a half of a roller coaster about it. Thank you, have a blessed day. Goodnight.

    JeremyExiled:

    First off, let me say this. If something is surrounding a ring and it isn’t Shetland Ponies, we’ve already been lead so astray that I doubt we can make our collective ways back to salvation. That being said, give me Randy Savage vs. Jim “Das Anvil” Neidhart in a Shetland Pony-jack match. The set-up is that Savage is looking to sell the ponies to Neidhart, but a fight has broken out due to payment disagreements. Winner cooks the po…just kidding. Both winner and loser ride the ponies into the crowd – fade to black. Continue reading
