WWE: 10 Most Famous Loser Leaves Town Retirement Matches

25 April 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the territory days of professional wrestling, whenever a talent had worn out their welcome in an area or was looking toward greener pastures elsewhere, one surefire way to necessitate the move while building interest in a feud was to book a loser leaves town match. The winner would remain active in the territory while the defeated wrestler would ply his trade elsewhere. Stipulations like these were commonplace in those times. Mick Foley tells a humorous story in his first book of giving away the result of a loser leaves town match he was participating in by showing up to the arena with all his luggage packed into his car.

When a rivalry has been taken to the next level and things have really gotten serious, a more risky stipulation is for a  wrestler to put their entire career on the line. Two competitors square »

‘Shawn Michaels: Mr WrestleMania’ Blu-ray Review

9 March 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are fast approaching the 30th annual WrestleMania event and it is the time of year when many wrestling fans look back on the famous event and revisit the moments that, for whatever reason, were memorable to them. Through the years there have been plenty of memorable moments at WrestleMania and dozens of wrestlers have carved themselves into the tree-bark of history with their performance on the grandest stage in professional wrestling.

That man is Shawn Michaels, and this DVD/Blu-ray package is about his legacy on WWE’s main stage.

Shawn Michaels made his WrestleMania debut as part of The Rockers tag team with Marty Jannetty to take on The Twin Towers in 1989 at the fifth annual show, and his last wrestling appearance »

WWE: 9 Famous Wrestling Retirements (That Were Total Lies)

19 February 2014 12:03 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Retirements in professional wrestling are largely running jokes.  Very few take them seriously due to the fact that so many performers “retired” only to come back a short time later.  This has had a negative effect on real retirements as well.  People like Edge, who have legitimate medical issues, don’t get the benefit of the doubt any longer because their past colleagues have convinced the audience not to buy into any retirement angles.

This list is a look back at the retirements that may or may not have been taken seriously at the time but, when all was said and done, the worker had no intention of actually retiring.  Some of the retirements received more press than others but all of them were supposed to be taken seriously at the time.
