DVD REVIEW: Thy Kingdom Come – 3-Disc Triple H DVD Set

On September 24th, 2013, WWE finally released a complete documentary set on one of the most influential, and certainly most powerful figures in the history of professional wrestling, the “son-in-law”, Triple H. It’s hard not to respect Triple H.  Forget about the fact that he is a political powerhouse in World Wrestling Entertainment, just for a moment, and consider the career the man has had.  Beginning as not much more than an enhancement talent in World Championship Wrestling, to…

Attitude Is Everything: The Fall Of Mr. McMahon

  Throughout the attitude era there were many great heels. A story and a match is just so much more enjoyable when you despise one of the people involved. During this time, no man was more despised than Mr. McMahon. Man, he was good… Or bad, I guess. He was everything people wanted to rebel against. Imagine what Stone Cold Steve Austin would have been without Mr. McMahon. But what happened?… I’m having a really hard time watching Mr….

Attitude Is Everything: Before They Had Attitude

While looking back at the Attitude Era, I remember all of the things that made this point in time great. The language, the innuendo, the half naked (and sometimes actually naked) women, the danger… But what made the attitude era shine was the talent.   Each week we saw pimps, rednecks, demons, degenerates, psychopaths, and more. I know that sound like most family reunions but, not even my family was this dysfunctional.   One advantage the Attitude era had…

2013 WWE Hall of Fame Review (TV Version)

It’s hard to argue that this year’s WWE Hall of Fame Class was the most loaded line-up since regular inductions commenced in 2004.  While there have been several notable “headliners” (so to speak), especially in the prior four years, this year was the first that featured multiple names that could have easily headlined the event itself.  So it is with great privilege, and honour that I present my review of the televised version of the 2013 WWE Hall of…

Jan and Justin make their WrestleMania 29 picks

Jan: I like Cena for a number of reasons. First, he’s still the face of this company. He’s been putting over a number of other talents in recent years and the mounting losses are beginning to hurt is credibility. Second, The Rock will only ever be a part-time talent at this point, so don’t fall in love with the Rock as champ. Finally, I like Cena to even this feud at 1-1, then a rubber match next year at…
