Did WrestleMania 32 Prove WWE Is Out Of Touch With The Fans?

4 April 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

I cannot even begin to comprehend what Vince McMahon was thinking when he laid out WrestleMania 32. If what occurred in Dallas is not proof positive that he is out of touch with what his core fan base wants, then nothing is. He is the captain of the sinking Titanic, refusing to believe that his ship even hit an iceberg, let alone is being being sank by it.

I thought the wrestling throughout the night was solid at worst and pretty good at best, without anything blowing me away. Not the most glowing praise, but given the hotchpotch mess I was expecting going in, it actually delivered slightly beyond my expectations. 

The issue – as always – was not with the in-ring action, but with the way it was booked. WWE got it wrong not just in all of the big matches, but in every single contest.

Review: WWE Straight Outta Dudleyville (Blu-ray)

4 April 2016 2:43 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The WWE is experiencing something of a resurgence in its tag team divisions at the moment, and while teams like The Usos, Los Matadores and the fabulous The New Day are very impressive and entertaining, there was a time in the WWE just over a decade ago, that the tag team division was something truly phenomenal and a large part of this was due to the Dudley Boyz.

Initially part of the larger Dudley Brothers stable at Ecw, Bubba-Ray and D-Von Dudley soon broke away to become their own two man wrecking machine and in the process laid the foundations for the tag team that is still a dominating force in the WWE today.

Straight Outta Dudleyville is a celebration of the first twenty years of this epic partnership and as is their way these days, WWE has once again assembled a fascinating, informative and entertaining documentary to accompany it. »

This week on Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon announced that Kevin Owens would defend the Intercontinental Championship against Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Stardust, Sin Cara, and Zack Ryder in a ladder match. This would mark the 11th time in WrestleMania history that a ladder match will take place. The previous ten ladder matches, ranging all the way back to WrestleMania X, have provided some of the most memorable moments in the history of the ‘Granddaddy of Them All’.

Whether they be for the Intercontinental Championship, the Tag Team Championship, or the Money in the Bank briefcase, the ladder match has always stole the show at WrestleMania. The high spots have always sent the crowd into a frenzy, and set the tone for the rest of the night. In addition, these matches have made the careers of future hall of famers like Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, Edge, and others. »

10 Grand Moments We Need To See At WrestleMania 32

18 March 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WrestleMania, cultural phenomenon that it is, has become a stage where the moments are made that last forever, and even though fans have come to pretty much expect classic matches and big-time appearances from superstars, it’s those moments that end up making the show.

Nobody will ever forget some of the greatest WrestleMania moments of years past – Bret Hart defeating Yokozuna at WrestleMania X and being hoisted up in celebration by the roster’s babyfaces. Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit standing side by side as champions in the closing moments of WrestleMania Xx. Daniel Bryan overcoming all the odds to reach immortality at WrestleMania XXX.

Each WrestleMania needs to deliver a series of moments that ensure that it will last in the memory, standing alongside the shows that came before it. This year is no different, and while the card may seem weaker than usual at first glance, »

15 Most Shocking WrestleMania Moments Of All Time

12 March 2016 12:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Don Feria/AP

For over three decades, WrestleMania has provided WWE with countless memorable moments but for the most part, they were expected. Hulk Hogan defeating Andre The Giant, Stone Cold defeating Shawn Michaels to win his first WWE title, Daniel Bryan getting his happy ending at WrestleMania 30. They were still incredible, but at the beginning of the night, it was easy to predict that they would happen.

The truly shocking WrestleMania moments are actually few and far between. On the grandest stage of them all, the creative team plays it safe for the most part.

While we wait for the next shocking moment at WrestleMania, let’s take a look at the 15 most shocking moments from the first 31..

Every WrestleMania Triple Threat Match Ranked – From Worst To Best

1 March 2016 12:43 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jonathan Bachman/AP

The modern professional wrestling fan may take them for granted somewhat, but three way matches were once extremely innovative. There is a lot of debate around where the concept started in North American pro-wrestling, with some claiming Ecw popularised the match with the infamous Terry Funk v Shane Douglas v Sabu bout in 1994. Regardless of where it came from, in the 1990s it was still new and fresh.

Due to the fairly modern creation of the match, there wasn’t a single triple threat match (as it is known in WWE) at WrestleMania until WrestleMania Xv in 1999. If you can guess who was involved in the match before clicking through the answers, your WWE trivia is on point to say the least.

Since the very first one, there has been a total of 15 triple threats on the Grandest Stage of Them All. All except one has seen a championship on the line, »

18 Most Underrated Storylines In WrestleMania History

1 March 2016 11:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

For every “Stone ColdSteve Austin vs. The Rock and Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant, there are two or three underrated storylines that have helped to make WrestleMania the can’t-miss extravaganza it is.

They are the feuds and rivalries that have been overshadowed or lost in the shuffle underneath the programs that have come to define the event. While everyone remembers Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker at the 25th incarnation of the show, the sibling war between Jeff and Matt Hardy on the undercard was accompanied by a story as strong as any other on the broadcast, yet few talk about it today.

WrestleMania X is an epic show, with two legitimate five-star matches featuring Bret vs. Owen Hart and Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels, but there is a very strong program supporting those two matches on the undercard, as Randy Savage and Crush brought their heated rivalry to a conclusion. »

15 Things You Didn’t Know About WrestleMania (1995 – 2004)

18 February 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

As the World Wrestling Federation settled into the decade of the nineties, the company would face multiple obstacles that jeopardised its status as the premier entertainment juggernaut it had been in the 80s, as well as the success of its biggest show of the year, WrestleMania.

Federal investigations, staunch competition, ageing talents, and the desperate need to create new superstars all contributed to the would-be decline of the second decade of WrestleMania, making the event slip a bit in terms of prestige.

In addition, the venues had changed from 50,000+ seat open stadiums to smaller arenas that might seat 20,000 max. Despite the decline, WrestleMania still produced some very memorable stories from this time period, but, like the first ten shows, there are a number of things that took place behind-the-scenes that aren’t as well known.

10 Forgotten Gems From WWF’s New Generation Era

17 February 2016 6:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

When people talk about the World Wrestling Federation’s New Generation Era, many fans will argue about when exactly the era started.

In my eyes, it began once the majority of the 1980’s acts like Jake Roberts, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior and others parted ways with the company. Following the exodus, WWF then debuted Monday Night Raw in prime time in January of 1993 and would air vignettes about the ‘New Generation’ of WWF stars.

Performers like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon were championed on television as being the new faces of the company. Due to this era not being commercially successful, a lot of great matches have unfortunately been forgotten, while only the major pay per-view encounters have seem to have stood the test of time.

There are great bouts that people still regularly discuss, like The Heartbreak Kid and Razor Ramon Ladder Match from WrestleMania X »

Bret Hart’s Cancer Surgery A Success

Tuesday evening, seven-time world champion and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart took to Instagram to let his fans know that his surgery for prostate cancer was a success:

Surgery's over and on the long road to recovery. I want to thank Dr. Hyndman and the nursing staff at Rocky View Hospital for an outstanding job. I also want to thank my family, friends, and fans for all your love and support. Things are looking up and I should be home in the next couple of days. In the words of Vince McMahon: "It's onwards and upwards.

20 Things You Didn’t Know About WrestleMania (1985-1994)

4 February 2016 11:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

For 32 years, WrestleMania has been home for historic high-profile matches and career-making moments  that have created some of the most iconic imagery in wrestling. The sight of the legendary battle between Andre The Giant and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III, the Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan main event that never happened, and the year-long build of The Rock vs. John Cena are just some of the moments and stories that couldn’t possibly be forgotten.

But there are also WrestleMania memories that WWE doesn’t like to re-live.

Not every WrestleMania story has been front page news. In fact, some WrestleMania anecdotes were often kept quiet, or tried to be silenced altogether, since their details were not the type of stories that WWE likes to share. These more secretive tales, in some cases, had the potential to change the course of the entire company; others were less impactful but »

Madison Square Gardens Pays Bret Hart Tribute

4 February 2016 12:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Instagram.com

The announcement earlier this week that WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart is currently suffering from prostate cancer stunned both wrestling fans and those in the wrestling business. Now, one of the places where Hart achieved some of his greatest successes is paying him tribute.

Madison Square Garden in New York City was the site of some of Hart’s greatest triumphs during his wrestling career. When one thinks of Hart and Msg, his victory over “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig at SummerSlam 1991 immediately comes to mind. In that match, Hart won his first singles title in the WWE, the Intercontinental Championship. Two and a half years later, at WrestleMania X, Hart captured the WWE Championship for the second time when he defeated Yokozuna for the strap in the show’s main event at Msg.

On Wednesday of this week, the venue honored Hart on their world famous marquee »

Maybe it’s not the greatest spectacle on earth (as the WWE claims) but Wrestlemania has surely always been entertaining. I think I kind of stopped watching after Wrestlemania X but that doesn’t mean I haven’t followed the results and read the stories all these years.

7 Rare Bret Hart Wrestling Matches You Must See

17 January 2016 4:13 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

In this regular feature I intend to put my quarter-of-a-century of wrestling viewing to good use by helping to educate and inform the modern fan about the greats of a generation they missed out on.

Bret Hart was one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time, possessing the ability to contest barn-burning matches with a variety of different opponents. He was a master technician. A creator of fine art between the ropes. He has not wrestled in a decade-and-a-half, so chances are many of the new generation of wrestling fans have never had the pleasure of watching him wrestle.

It would be all too easy to randomly select seven great Bret Hart matches, and lists of that ilk are readily available for those who want them. Everybody knows about Hart’s classics with Davey Boy Smith (SummerSlam ’92 and In Your House 5), Steve Austin (Survivor Series ’96 and WrestleMania 13 »
