Names – they’re pretty important. In the crazy world of wrestling, it’s important to get a name right as it’s often the first detail fans will know about you. A great name tells the audience exactly what a wrestler is about, and what their prerogative inside the ring is, especially when it comes to tag teams. On the other hand though, get a name wrong, and it can make everything set off to a very bad start. In fact, some names are so terrible, they destroy a tag team’s run instantly with no hope of success. But out of all the pairings seen in promotions across the world over the last five decades or so, which teams have doomed themselves the most with miserable monikers? Well, there’s no need to decide for yourself because I’ve done all the hard work for you. Here are the Top 10 Worst Tag Team Names.
Wrestling fans absolutely love tournaments. Well, I know I do anyway. All across the world, tournaments are the highlights of every promotion’s annual calendar, such as NJPW’s Best of the Super Juniors, PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles, Lucha Underground’s Cueto Cup, WCPW’s Pro Wrestling World Cup, and Progress’ Super Strong Style. From the King of the Ring to the Cruiserweight Classic, tournaments have always been a part of WWE programming, yet in the last few years, they really have seemed to have made a comeback, with the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and the upcoming Mae Young Classic. These tournaments always prove to be successful, pulling in a lot of praise and attention for their great in-ring action, surprising and memorable moments, and ability to create stars. With that in mind, perhaps it’s time for WWE to draw up a few more brackets and order a few more trophies. But what tournaments could WWE potentially do in the near future? Well, I have a few suggestions. Here are Five Potential WWE Tournaments.
Last year, I made a list of ten fantastic women’s matches that I felt needed to be appreciated by more people. But clearly, ten wasn’t enough. Although, times have thankfully changed, there are dozens of fantastic women’s wrestling matches that have happened in the last three decades that were unfortunately overlooked and overshadowed by bikini contests and evening gown matches. It’s time to give just some of those great matches the appreciation they deserve: Here are 10 More Women’s Wrestling Matches You Need to See.
Wrestling is a wonderful thing. Part sport, part soap opera. But behind all of the pyro, the storylines, the spandex, and the razzle dazzle, the true reason we love this crazy world of sports entertainment is because of the in-ring action. Sure, we need all of the extravagance and kayfabe that comes along with it, yet all of that would be nothing without some good ol’ wrasslin’. This list honours those ring technicians that are at the top of their game right now, the masters of their craft, those that keep us watching and chanting “fight forever” and “this is awesome” repeatedly. Here are the Top 10 Highest Quality Wrestlers in the World.
2016 was a gift to wrestling fans. An absolute nightmare for celebrities, and pretty much everyone else in the world, but we were all able to escape from the horrors of the world by watching some outstanding wrestling. And if the first month of this new year is anything to go by, it looks like 2017 is set to somehow be even better. January 2017 is a wrestling fan’s dream, and by the end of it, it could possibly go down as one of, if not the greatest month in wrestling history. Don’t believe me? Well, I’ve got plenty of reasons why.
2017 is here! A new year, new resolutions, and a new President (unfortunately). With all of this talk of new things, it got me thinking – which new stars will we see emerge in WWE in 2017? Who will grab Vinny Mac’s brass ring this year? We can never know for sure, but there are certainly some definite contenders. There are plenty of promising talents in WWE, but which of these future stars has the most potential? Here are my Top 10 Most Promising Talents in WWE.
2016 has been an incredible year for wrestling. A fucking terrible year for literally everything else – Donald Trump was elected President, Britain left the EU, almost every celebrity on Earth died, and Toblerone changed shape, but forget about all of that evil, at least wrestling was great!
