The fact is that when a match makes it to WrestleMania, it achieves a kind of wrestling immortality. It means that the bout was selected...

Last night we held our first ever live blog for Raw and you can see my rambling thoughts of the show in real-time by clicking here.

Let’s kick off with what the entire show was based around: The Rock and John Cena. Rocky delivered three recorded segments throughout the show from various parts of Boston. Keyword: recorded – that will come up a little later on so store that in the back of your...

WWE Raw: John Cena gets the better of The Rock again

11:11: Rock pulled a Cena and exited the ring after he said his peace. It was effective when Cena did it last week, but the Rock left Cena in the ring alone and he thrived. He mimicked Rock with bogus notes on his wrist and then hit hard with strong words driving home the point that he has to win at Wrestlemania. Even though Cena didn't dust off one of his raps as I had hoped, he came very close...

Last week I wrote about the 10 biggest matches in WrestleMania history. I noted then that while a few of them may have felt epic, they weren’t executed very well.

In fact, in its over the last 28 years, several WrestleMania main events have failed to deliver. In some cases, expectations were low to begin with because of the competitors involved (See: Sid Eudy.) In other cases, expectations...

Hulkamania is running wild on the Mets in spring training.

Yesterday, Mets relief pitcher Tim Byrdak crashed practice at spring training dressed as wrestling icon Hulk Hogan circa 1980s.

Byrdak even bleached his mustache earlier this week in preparation for...
