Review: WWE The Attitude Era Volume 3: Unreleased (Blu-ray)

7 August 2016 3:17 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In a move as inevitable as The Rock dropping a People’s Elbow on somebody at WrestleMania, WWE have released the third in their Attitude Era series, focusing this time on previously unreleased content. This gives this volume a slightly different feel to the previous two, but is a little hit and miss because of it.

What does work about this volume is drafting Corey Graves in to provide context and comment between each of the fifteen matches in the main feature. Graves brings an enthusiasm and knowledge to this role that others sometimes lack, namely John Bradshaw Layfield on the recent Us Championship release, and his comments are interesting and enlightening.

The choice of matches, too, is inspired with WWE digging deep to present several previously unreleased matches that are historically significant in the company’s history. The jewel in the crown of these has to be the first »

Andre The Giant Biopic To Bodyslam A Theater Near You

10 May 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Professional wrestling has had several moments. Moments when it crossed over into the mainstream and became a temporary part of the greater pop culture consciousness. While many folks may recall The Attitude Era, that gave the world stars like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, there was arguably no bigger zeitgeist moment for professional wrestling than the Rock n Wrestling Connection era. That period, which lasted from the mid 1980s to the early 1990s gave us Hulk Hogan, "The Macho Man" Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, and- of course- the legendary Andre The Giant.

Andre The Giant (real name Andre Roussimoff) was an integral part of that boom. He was a crossover star and an ambassador for the industry. If you knew nothing about wrestling, you still knew who Andre The Giant was. He even appeared in the beloved 80s cult classic, The Princess Bride, which helped cement »

The annual WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony never fails to entertain. With kayfabe being thrown out the window, you never know what you’re going to see.

The event offers an opportunity for professional wrestlers of both yesteryear and present to get together and celebrate the business we all know and love. Just seeing so many legends in one place is worth the price of admission on its own.

While the red carpet offers the glitz and glamour, it’s the speeches that most fans tune in to hear and see. Whether it’s touching tributes, hilarious stories or can’t-miss moments, the ceremony has become a WrestleMania weekend viewing staple.

This year’s Hall of Fame ceremony was no different. Comprised of diverse inductees, the Class of 2016’s speeches touched our hearts and made us cry with laughter.

WWE WrestleMania 32 Preview – Roman Reigns vs. Triple H, Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell, Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar and more

2 April 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s the biggest WrestleMania of all-time with one of the most depleted rosters in recent memory. Injuries to top talent has left WWE in a quandary, but they’ve pushed forward with their plans questionable booking and all – it’s WrestleMania 32…

Well, it’s that special time of year. A time when wrestling fans – both current and lapsed – come together and celebrate this bizarre past time we call Professional Wrestling Sports Entertainment. Some might say that the Nxt Takeover: Dallas card is more impressive (and they’re right), but there’s something special about WrestleMania that you just can’t deny. I saw a small photo of the stage being built yesterday and my excitement grew – just a small photo! The card is problematic, and the injuries to top talent like John Cena, Seth Rollins, Neville and Cesaro along with the retirements of Daniel Bryan and Sting mean that the roster is very, »

10 Biggest Jobbers In WWE History

23 March 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Professional wrestling is, at its heart, a story of winners and losers. For every groundbreaking, era-defining figure such as Steve Austin or John Cena, there lies a trail of victims in their wake. Most admittedly have had their moment in the sun – but what about the losers that never win?

As some of you might be aware, I’ve made quite a habit of losing challenges on our official YouTube channel (WhatCulture Wrestling). I know exactly what it means to be a jobber – it’s in my Twitter handle for goodness’ sake – so who better to guide you through the murky, depressing world of WWE’s most desperate losers?

Jobbers can take many forms, from the classic Hogan-fodder of the golden era to comedic modern-day superstars, none of whom could ever seem to buy a win. Sometimes unremarkable and generic, sometimes silly to the extreme, these wrestlers are »

WWE Raw: 10 Things You Might Have Missed (March 21)

22 March 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Well, this week’s Raw is in the books, and it sadly must be considered a disappointment. The pressure was always going to be on for WWE, heading into Philadelphia (a notoriously smarky city) just two weeks before WrestleMania 32 – with several storylines still underdeveloped, and Roman Reigns proving as unpopular a babyface as ever.

Sadly, the show didn’t really rise to the occasion. Kevin Owens and Aj Styles but on a great match, but we know that WWE’s roster can deliver in the ring when it matters. Our lack of faith in the product is rather based on storylines and booking, and once again, little thought seemed to be given to WrestleMania’s biggest angles.

It’s a worrying thought, but perhaps WWE are content with Roman Reigns as the undisputed top guy, and with Shane and Undertaker fighting for paper-thin reasons.

All in all, then, »

Shocking Wrestling Plans You Won’t Believe Almost Happened

Ranking Triple H’s 19 WrestleMania Matches – From Worst To Best

13 March 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Triple H will headline yet another WrestleMania extravaganza on April 3 when he defends the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns in the main event of the company’s spring classic. It is not the first time he has set foot in the squared circle in such a high-profile situation. In fact, over the course of his celebrated career he has competed in the last match on the ‘Mania card six times, has been involved in championship bouts nine times, and battled at the Showcase of the Immortals a whopping nineteen times, including eight straight.

There is a sense of importance that comes with all of his championship defenses, his heated grudge matches are often the most anticipated on the card and his victories and defeats are some of the most buzzed about of the year. One of the final remnants of the celebrated Attitude Era, he has »

Speaking of workplace disagreements, our top story today is the very real-life tension between Shane and Stephanie McMahon.

After leaving the WWE in 2009, Shane has now returned to face the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 32.

Jim Ross Calls Cm Punk A “Well Conditioned Kimbo Slice”

5 March 2016 11:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jim Ross might be best known for his decades of work as a pro wrestling announcer, most notably during the WWE’s Attitude Era, but make no mistake: he’s a knowledgeable sports fan, and a knowledgeable Mma fan as well – going the next step and taking on broadcasting duties a while back at Battlegrounds Mma, alongside Chael Sonnen.

Ross, who is now working for New Japan, as well as calling boxing events for CBS, recently sat down with Yahoo Sports for a Q&A, and of course, the subject of Cm Punk came up.

When asked if he felt Punk’s move to Mma was the right decision, Ross was straightforward:

Yes, because he was miserable with the WWE. He could have probably went on to do something else in wrestling if he chose to. But he seemed as if when he left it was cathartic for him. »

10 Part-Timers Who Screwed With The WWE Roster

3 March 2016 9:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s the perennial debate every year when WrestleMania rolls around: the rights and wrongs of WWE legends and part-timers returning to slide into the upper reaches of the card over the full time roster, who invariably take a back seat.

Now, the argument ‘for’ is that the involvement of stars from the past boosts the buyrate and the gate, meaning bigger business and more money for the participants. That’s just a one night cash grab, though. Had WWE concentrated on building up their roster, they’d have contemporary stars to fill those roles.

The fact is, when business was booming it was due to contemporary stars. The eighties Golden Era and the nineties Attitude Era didn’t rely on nostalgia acts and middle-aged wrestling legends to sell tickets. They had their own stars: amongst them Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, The Undertaker.

Nowadays we have those stars too… »

Rebooking WWE WrestleMania 2000: 8 Ways To Make It Better

2 March 2016 12:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE were on a serious roll in 2000. The inconsistent Vince Russo was out of the picture, WCW were getting weaker as the weeks and months went by, The Rock, Triple H and others were coming into their own as main event stars and the midcard was as exciting as it had ever been.

Everything was clicking and it seemed as though the product offered the best of both worlds: you still had the outlandish, Ott characters and storylines from the Attitude Era, but mixed in with that was some damn fine wrestling courtesy of the likes of The Radicalz, Chris Jericho, The Hardy Boys, Edge & Christian, Kurt Angle and so on.

Looking back, it’s really no surprise that the company were doing such good business, with critically well-received shows doing huge ratings and PPVs doing very healthy buyrates. You’d think that, given the momentum the company had at the time, »

18 WWE Attitude Era Midcarders That Deserve Hall Of Fame

26 February 2016 10:24 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Attitude Era was a magical period for WWE. It bred some of the most captivating angles, memorable stories and unforgettable characters in the history of professional wrestling. It was also home to some of the truly great Superstars to ever compete in a Vince McMahon-owned ring.

The February 22 episode of Monday Night Raw brought with it the announcement that The Godfather would enter the company’s Hall of Fame during WrestleMania weekend. A massively popular star whose penchant for pimping hos and rolling fatties fit in perfectly with the tone of that era’s programming. He was a great opening match character in that he energized crowds and had them looking forward to the rest of the night’s action.

Never anything more than a midcard talent, he is still fondly remembered as an iconic persona.

What the Attitude Era did so well was give every »
