I’ve heard it said that somewhere between science and superstition, there is another world. A world of darkness.
“Our cause is not for evil,” said Sullivan during an interview for Championship Wrestling from Florida in 1982. “Because all we’re looking for is refuge from this cold, cruel world.”
Ring a bell?
Sullivan’s dark mystique, his messianic charisma, his penchant for dark riddles — they all seem to have been resurrected in the form of Bray Wyatt.
Take, for instance, these words recently delivered by the leader of the Wyatt Family to nemesis John Cena:
“This is a terrible world,” Wyatt drawled. “A cold, cold dark and lonely place. You stand for these illusions. But »

In light of Matt Hardy’s January hotel room, ummm …. “scuffle” with his wife, I thought we’d take this time to look at professional wrestling’s strange relationship with the law. Occasionally people are arrested in storyline such as Stone Cold, The Undertaker and Goldberg, but in the real world, you’d have multiple counts of Grievous Bodily Harm every time there was a hardcore match. And a Public Indecency charge every time Mae Young took her clothes off, God rest her soul.
Every now and then, however, wrestlers get arrested in the very real sense of the word. Most of the time, its for drink or drugs related offences, but then there are those who have committed crimes so heinous that it stains their career forever. Here, we look at 12 times wrestlers did bad things, got caught »
The time has come folks. The WWE has finally launched the WWE Network in the United States (the rest of the World to follow eventually) and I had a chance to spend the last couple of days delving into the service.
I’ll begin by saying that my review and look at the service is based on my use of it on PS3 and Laptop Computer. The launch, if you are one who follows the news on these matters, was a small disaster, with many people being unable to access the correct pages in order to sign up, and this issue went on for the first day of the launch. Since then, due to the slowing down of traffic attempting to sign up, this issue has cleared up, but that doesn’t mean that the WWE Network has been all smooth sailing.
Currently we are three days into the service »

The WWE.com website has provided a listing of all the WWE/WCW/Ecw PPVs that will be available when WWE Network launches on February 24th.
There are over 400 shows listed,wWith most of them running 3 hours in length, we’re talking about an enormous supply of wrestling footage that fans can’t get anywhere else. Sure, you could find them on youtube maybe, but chances are the quality won’t be good there. Plus, it will be much more organized when WWE Network has them listed.
The listing of Pay-Per-Views includes every WWE PPV that has ever happened. What’s most interesting is that WWE Over The Edge 1999 is on there.
As most wrestling fans know, Over the Edge 1999 was the event held in Kansas City where WWE superstar Owen Hart died while he was in a Blue Blazer costume. Owen repelled down from the rafters, but something went »

When a former five time WWE Champion speaks about his desire to go back to WWE, the wrestling world listens.
That is what’s happened as former 5-time WWE Champion Kurt Angle spoke to The Sun in the UK for a nearly 30 minute chat. He was in town promoting the Tna Wrestling events taking place in the UK over the next week. You can watch the video right here.
The most interesting aspect of the chat had to deal with Angle’s comments relating to a possible return to World Wrestling Entertainment, where he had an amazing career from 1999 to 2006. Here’s what Angle had to say about a WWE return.
“I can’t say when. My (Tna) contract is up in September and I’ve left my options open. I’m very happy in Tna. Dixie Carter has treated me very well and always been there for me. But, »
