William Moody, who, as the macabre Paul Bearer helped elevate The Undertaker into becoming the most successful gimmick performer in wrestling history, has died, according to WWE. Moody, who personified pro wrestling’s over-the-top theatrics like few others, was 58 years old. As Percy Pringle, Moody began making a name for himself as a loathsome wrestling manager during the 1980s in various southern...

Randy Orton vs. Kane

Alfonso: Randy Orton

I believe WWE has already begun advertising a three-way world title match at Extreme Rules with Orton taking on Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. So it looks like this match will be one and done, in which case it makes no sense to put Kane over. Orton hits the RKO and makes relatively quick work out of the Big Red Monster.

One of the biggest debates among fans the week of Wrestlemania is the match order for the pay per view. To many fans, the pecking order of matches is very important as it symbolizes importance as the show makes its way toward the main event. Yet, a Wrestlemania card is not always booked from least important to most important match. If that was the case, then why was the Women’s Title at Wrestlemania...

The WWE had one last chance to promote Wrestlemania on their flagship television show last night. Raw was held in Atlanta -- the host city of last year’s Wrestlemania -- at the Philips Arena where just about a year ago the “once in a lifetime match” was made between The Rock and John Cena. Raw had that “big-time” atmosphere last night just six days before Wrestlemania 28. All night video segments...

Last night’s Raw in Philadelphia featured more of the same: lots of talking and very little action between the stars who make up the three biggest feuds going into Wrestlemania. It’s evident that The Rock and John Cena are talking circles at this point. The same could be said with Undertaker and Triple H, while the CM Punk-Chris Jericho angle continues to get deeply personal. Let’s start there....

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 mind....

WWE draft predictions

The annual WWE Draft takes place tonight. And if past draft shows are any evidence, WWE will undoubtedly be looking to create a buzz with some big moves. Unfortunately, there are fewer of those big moves to make than ever before. Because of a general dearth of star power, and WWE being lax about keeping its two brands truly separate, there aren’t many roster changes that would come off as...
