Bobby Heenan Passes Away At 73

https://wrestlingrumors.net/breaking-news-bobby-brain-heenan-passes-away-73/ This is far from a surprise but dang it still hurts a lot.  I got to see Heenan in Orlando at Wrestlecon and I’ve seen walkers on the Walking Dead who looked more lifelike.  For me there’s no debating it: Heenan is the greatest manage of all time and one of the best commentators […]

Three Wrestling Books and a Wrestling Movie

One is excellent, one is better than expected, one is what you would expect and one….wait I ready that?

Ric Flair Hospitalized, in ICU

This is the biggest news on a very busy news day.  I don’t think there’s anything I can say here other than I hope this gets a lot better.  Flair has a heart issue brought on by excessive drinking over the years.  He’s also currently in a medically induced coma.  I’ve had issues with Flair […]

Thoughts on the 2016 Wrestling Observer Newsletter Awards

Don’t these usually come out earlier? These are Meltzer and Company’s awards (yes I’m aware his readers vote on them and if you believe that he doesn’t influence voting, you’re really missing the obvious) and I’ve jotted down a few thoughts on each. These aren’t meant to be any kind of in depth analysis and […]

And it’s one of the less frustrating I’ve seen.

What is that, four in ten days or so?  Koloff is most famous for taking the WWWF World Title away from Bruno Sammartino, ending the legendary seven year reign.  He went on to wrestle around the world, including some time down in the Crockett promotion.

Kayfabe – A Wrestling Movie

You don’t often get a movie about wrestling and it’s even rarer to have one catering to smarks but that’s what we have here.  It’s certainly low budget but the comedy works and it’s a really easy sit.  You can tell the people who made it put some effort into it and got the idea […]

Chavo Guerrero Sr. Passes Away at 68

He had been diagnosed with liver cancer earlier this year so this wasn’t the biggest shock.  It’s still never a good thing to see happen though.  He and his brothers gave a Chicago crowd one of the biggest shocks ever at SuperClash III with all their crazy high spots that no one around there had […]

Best of 2016: Wrestler of the Year

Best of 2016: Surprise of the Year

This is one of the last two because we’re getting close to the Royal Rumble and that’s FAR too late for the sake of doing a Best of series. Basically today we’re looking at the Surprise of the Year, which I’m going to keep a bit shorter for the sake of time. There are a […]
