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!

Wrestling fans have been spoiled in the last twelve months to some amazing wrestling matches and moments from promotions around the globe. It really has been a standout year for this wonderful sport that we love, so narrowing down everything that happened into just one list was a difficult task. But here it is, part one of my list of the Top 20 Things that Happened in Wrestling in 2016.
2016 is almost at an end. So as one amazing year of wrestling comes to a close, it’s time to look at what the future has in store for us. 2017 has a lot to live up to if it wants to surpass the last twelve months of fantastic grappling action, but with all of these exciting events to look forward to, it may just achieve that. So here they are: my Top 10 Things I’m Looking Forward to in 2017.
What a year it has been for wrestling fans. We’ve been treated to dozens of incredible matches, entertaining characters, and memorable moments, but in this year of amazing events, who in this wonderful industry claimed 2016 as their own? Here are my Top 15 Wrestlers Who Made 2016 Their Own.
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.
