    Click here for Part 1! Natalya vs Charlotte (c) for the Diva’s Championship A rematch of Charlotte’s first main roster bout! I expected Nattie (whom I love) to complement Charlotte well but it was a pretty nothing match. Loved Nattie’s New Gen Bret & Owen shirt. Annoyed with Nattie absolutely no-selling a figure four, robotically shouting “no” at Charlotte. John Cena/Cinder block levels of …

    Vince saying “fucking beating” at 11 seconds! In a huge shocker, THE BOY WONDER Shane O’Mac returned on RAW! Storyline-wise, Shane revealed Vince was once in a bind and Shane helped him out, silently gaining a lot of power of the company. Vince fumbled through his lines/explanation, but set up Shane’s match (oh shit! at WrestleMania! vs The Undertaker! A hell in the …

    Thoughts on the Rumble: • Before I start I have to say congratulations to the graphics department – the CG marble statues of all the wrestlers look fantastic. It will be one of the most memorable wrestling graphics for years to come, that everyone will remember! • Pre-Show had a 4-way tag for 2 Rumble spots. (Mark Henry/Jack Swagger (?!) def. Darren Young …

      Format: Much in the same vein as recent WWE Home Video releases (Attitude Era, nWo etc), this release is replete with a montage of talking heads with short snippets saying generic compliments “He was always a good guy”, “just a great wrestler” etc. Running Time: Even though Owen’s entire career was 13 years, this documentary clocks in at 1hr 7m, like the …

    Click here for Part 1! 2nd WWF Run: Tag Teams: With Anvil as the New Hart Foundation. Nattie was ecstatic to see them together. The pair ended when Neidhart was fired for ‘unprofessional conduct’, refusing to take a drug test and trashed some TV equipment. You might remember hearing Anvil was smoking crack with Davey Boy (who was a trainwreck) in the Summer …

      Note: We’re recording our first tattoo review this week! It also means there won’t be a video review of Survivor Series, so here’s all my thoughts! Mountain Dew Kickstart & Rolaids Advanced presents Survivor Series! Nov. 22nd, 2015 in the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, with an attendance touted as 14,481. The main bit of ska (scandal) coming into the PPV was ‘hactivist’ …

    I couldn’t pass up Mick’s return to the scene of the crime – in 2012, Mick bombed on stage on his last visit – the main problems being he’s not a comedian (anecdotes don’t have punchlines), he can’t deal with overly enthusiastic fans (shouting ‘talk about Undertaker!’) etc – stopping mid-sentence to chastise ~2 audience members, and having an extended meet and greet …

    It’s NXT Takeover 7: Respekkkkkkkk! (Booker T used to reiterate the word respect in the Main Event Mafia, it was amazing.) It’s October 7, back at Full Sail University, FL in front of 400 fans. Let’s do it to it! https://twitter.com/OSWreview/status/651911862636953600 FINN BALOR & SAMOA JOE vs THE MECHANICS (SCOTT DAWSON & DASH WILDER) The first of 3 tag matches, the semi-finals and …

    So we went to see Vince Russo tonight! Here’s the skinny: There were about 70 at the event, free seating in a function room at a hotel, which was perfect as it was a more intimate venue. The host was a super-nice guy with mad hair, looks like Pat the NES Punk. It was Eamon D’arcy, the announcer from Irish whip wrestling! Russo …

    Tough Enough • Back at the Barracks, Amanda continues her ‘ring rat’ miiiiiiiind games and Sarah Lee doesn’t deny it (or that part was cut – makes her look guilty, and Amanda huge bitch) • With the judges, they go through ideas for their live match on the finale, names for each one eg Sara (as “Hope”), theme songs – Sarah says she …
