    TNA President Dixie Carter explained that TNA Wrestling is going up against a corporate juggernaut that will stop at nothing to put them out of business.

    “Our competition may not have the same opinion that competition is good for an industry and take every opportunity to try to shut us down,” she said. “I mean, it is the truest of David-and-Goliath situations, but we are scrappy. We will not take no for an answer, and we are going to have great success.”

    With everything that WWE has going for them, Carter believes her company has a better in ring product and knows what the fans want.

    Kalisto vs. Alberto Del Rio in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match for the United States Championship

    Joey:

    The rivalry between Kalisto and Alberto Del Rio has been met with its fair shares of ups and downs. I’m not particularly excited about this but it’s not something I plan to skip. Kalisto being champ is something new and cool so I’m hopeful of that continuing.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tim:

    I like the idea of Kalisto as champ. He fresh and I really think he has potential. This feud has just been odd though. Every match is a mixture of cool moments and really bad flubs. ADR has been pretty pathetic this go-around. This seems like the blow-off. I’m pretty happy about that. I can totally watch these two try this out one more time. There are worse ways to spend my time. How about we do Kalisto vs Neville next?

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Kalisto wins.

    Tom:

    I can’t do it. I’m sorry. I like Kalisto and I wish they’d give him someone more interesting to scrap with because Berty D.R. is doing nothing for me right now. Best of luck to the both of them though (with the luck divided in Kalisto’s favour on an 80/20 split).

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: I’m too tired.

    The New Day appear on The Cutting Edge Peep Show

    Joey:

    This should be a humorous and interesting segment. I’m very happy this is happening instead of another random match with the Usos. My assumption is this segment is used to set up a TLC Match between The New Day, Usos and Dudz at Wrestlemania.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: TLC WM match is announced.

    Tim:

    Sure, why not? The New Day are fun to watch no matter what. The Dudleyz will have to join in though… and we’ll have to hear references about those old TLC matches again. Alright, maybe this won’t be all that fun.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Dudleyz show up and I fix some supper.

    Tom:

    Mostly, I’m hoping we get a fantastic sneak peak at Edge and Christian’s new Network show, because I have a feeling it will have shades of Swerved to it and that will be just wonderful. New Day interacting with Attitude Era stars is always a pleasure regardless though, so this should be fun (until the Dudley Boyz come out).

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: I ask Tim about his supper.

    Top 10 “See You Again” Tribute Videos for Wrestlers Who Aren’t Dead

    I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.

    While the fan-made wrestler tribute video was first sparked into existence by the “My Sacrifice” WWE music video and all its clones, it’s only recently that it was perfected. That’s thanks to Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” – ever since it was used to commemorate Paul Walker at the end of Furious 7, “See You Again” has become the defacto song for tribute videos and it’s raised the artform to new heights.

    Here are some of my favourite “See You Again” tribute videos (or “tribvidz”, as we call them in the industry). Please note, I’ve limited myself just to videos for wrestlers who aren’t dead because it’d get a bit morbid otherwise and we’re all here to have a good time.

    10. AJ Lee

    A strong start but it doesn’t really go anywhere or properly capture April Jeanette Lee-Brooks-Punker’s spectacular career. It doesn’t even have the clip of that time she got clattered by Big Show! Forget it.

    9. CM Punk

    Too many photos, I’m here to watch a VIDEO, not a SLIDESHOW! Also, I bet Punker thinks he’s too good to watch The Fast and The Furious, the little shit. Continue reading

    Best in the World: Favorite Daniel Bryan Memories

    #ThankYouDanielBryan

    bryan

    Hi, it’s @JoeyOnEarth. The recent retirement of Daniel Bryan has led to a bit of reminiscing on my part and I decided to share some of my favorite moments of his career. Dawning on the realization that we’ll never see another Bryan match was instant heartbreak but recalling all the special times he provided in a wrestling ring has put it in a more positive perspective for the closure of my favorite wrestler.

    My introduction to Bryan Danielson was in 2006. I actually wanted to dislike him. This was around my early stages of being welcomed into the “internet community” of wrestling fans. I’ve always had a thirst for pro wrestling and would watch literally any show that featured wrestling from childhood. WWE and TNA were the only companies on my radar and around ’06, my interest in pro wrestling hit a new low.
