If you had asked me my thoughts on Chris Jericho before 2016, I probably would have responded, “Meh, he’s alright.”
I’ve never been much of a fan, but I’ve never really known why. When I was a child, I just didn’t take to Jericho and his weird hair, and that carried on as I got older. Have you ever thought a song sounded okay, but it was by a band you hated so you didn’t allow yourself to enjoy it? That’s how I felt with Jericho. Even when he was doing great things I couldn’t acknowledge to his brilliance. That is until this year. His current run is the lengthiest he’s had in years, and has arguably been the best work of his career. He’s one of, if not the most entertaining parts of WWE at the moment, and his impeccable work this year has made me realise how great he is, was, and always will be.

We fans of the graps love seeing our favourite wrestlers lock-up in the ring, and we hate seeing anybody try to mess with that. Although it may bring in some more casual viewers, most of the time, us full-time fans collectively grown when we have to witness yet another celebrity, manager, commentator, or authority figure step inside the ring as we know of the horror that will likely come. However, from time to time, these non-grapplers can surprise us all by putting on a very entertaining show. In fact, there’s enough of these anomalies for me to make a whole list out of them. So here they are, my Top 5 Matches Involving Non-Wrestlers.

Dozens of men have held the biggest prize in wrestling over the last fifty plus years. The greatest of all time have had that golden strap around their waist, and worn it with pride; however, this prestigious title hasn’t always belonged to the most deserving of wrestlers. From time to time, WWE creative get it bafflingly wrong, and hand their most valuable prize to grapplers who don’t even deserve to be in the same room as that title. And in my mind, one ‘champion’ stands out above, or in this case below, the rest as the worst of the worst. This isn’t about how bad their title reign was, or how long they held the belt, or even how good their championship defences were, this is all about how deserving they were to hold it in the first place. At least the likes of Jack Swagger and Sycho Sid initially showed signs of potential, yet it was painfully obvious to everyone except for Vinny Mac that this man shouldn’t have even been inside a wrestling ring, let alone reach the top of the mountain.

WWE is home to some of the most talented performers in the world of wrestling. However, talent unfortunately doesn’t always mean success. Sometimes, even the best grapplers get swept under the ring, kept backstage, or are put a position on the card they simply don’t deserve to be in. It’s happened all too often over the years, and it’s sadly still going on today. But which WWE personnel’s skills are most going to waste? Here are my Top 10 Most Underutilised Talents in WWE.

I love a bit of merch. We all do; we want to show our support for our favourite wrestlers and promotions. The problem is that there’s so much beautiful merchandise out there, yet so little money in my wallet. Yet, no matter how light they may leave our pockets, we just cannot resist treating ourselves from time to time.

As a wrestling fan, it’s inevitable that you have seen thousands and thousands of moves in your lifetime. And, as a wrestling fan, it’s also inevitable that you have to set aside reality a little in order to truly enjoy a bit of sports entertainment. Sure, there are aspects of wrestling that are completely realistic, but then there are also magical beings that can summon lightning and teleport into caskets. Same goes with the moves – some would fit perfectly in a real life scrap, but then there are some that exist just to look cool. In this list, I’m looking at the moves that are perfectly acceptable in the wonderful world of kayfabe, yet in reality, they just have no use. Here are the Top 10 Cool Moves That Wouldn’t Actually Hurt.
