Pro wrestling is wonderfully ridiculous. It’s a form of entertainment where Olympic gold medallists can go one-on-one with 7-foot zombies with magic powers. In a world full of so many extravagant characters, it makes sense that some of them can’t possibly be from actual places that exist in the real world. Sometimes pro wrestling goes so far into kayfabe that they need to invent places for their characters to be from……or sometimes wrestlers just like to use where they’re billed from to make cool pop culture references. Whatever the reason behind it though, I’m going to rank them – here are the Top 10 Fictional Locations in Wrestling.
Later this month, WWE will be presenting it’s first-ever WWE Network show broadcasted from Saudi Arabia, when they host an event called The Greatest Royal Rumble in front of over 60,000 fans. It’s fair to say that this card is extremely stacked, as it features a fifty-man Royal Rumble match, seven championship bouts, Triple H vs. John Cena, and a recently announced Casket Match between Rusev and The Undertaker (for whatever reason). However, there is one major omission from this historic show – female competitors.
WrestleMania season is over for another year, but before we start looking forward to the 35th edition of the show, let’s look back at the best matches we saw in the biggest week of pro wrestling of the year – here are the Top 15 Best WrestleMania Week Matches: 2018.
Wrestlemania is the place where the biggest dream matches of all time take place within WWE…but sometimes, Vince and co forget to inform the fans that these collisions have already taken place somewhere else in the wrestling world. Since 1985, ten singles matches on the main cards of Wrestlemania had already been seen in other promotions at some point before all participants reached WWE/F, and I’m going to rank them based on their historical importance and quality – here are the Top 10 Wrestlemania Matches that had Already Taken Place Outside of WWE.
Wrestlemania is no longer just a one day epic event – it’s grown into a whole week of promotional wrestling, and one gigantic weekend of pro wrestling, both within and outside of Vinny Mac’s realm. Independent companies from around the world now conjugate in whichever city Wrestlemania is held in that year, and put shows on from Friday to Sunday to please the thousands of fans that flock to watch a bit of graps.
At Wrestlemania 34, Shinsuke Nakamura will take on AJ Styles for the WWE Championship, but it won’t be the first time they’ve fought for gold on a huge stage. In 2016, Styles and Nakamura had a match at Wrestle Kingdom 10 for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, and if that bout is any indication of how their Wrestlemania encounter is going to be, it will be absolutely fantastic.
This is the one-hundredth post on my website. Thank you to anybody that has ever read one of my articles, shared one of my posts, or accidentally clicked on my website because they found the name of it very misleading.
To celebrate, I’ve decided to list a whole bunch of explanations as to why I spend hours every week watching and writing about the wonderful world of sports entertainment. Here are One-Hundred Reasons Why I Love Pro Wrestling.
When Chris Jericho finally had his first-ever match rated five stars by renowned wrestling and MMA journalist Dave Meltzer on January 4th this year, it was a testament of how incredibly hard the former-WWE Champion works, and how when most wrestlers would have slowed down by now, Chris is still able to put on some of the best work of his career. To some, Meltzer’s opinion means nothing, to others, it’s the gospel. Personally, while I don’t always agree with his views, I do respect that somebody who’s been critiquing pro wrestling professionally for over four decades probably knows what he’s talking about, and as such, his ratings intrigue me. It’s incredible that in such a globally supported sport as pro wrestling, there’s only one critic who’s opinion really has any meaning behind it. Sure, you may be interested what other journalists, fans or personalities have to say, but a match is never referred to as five stars unless Dave Meltzer declares that it is. (Learn more about Dave Meltzer’s dedication to pro wrestling and why his opinion is so well respected by fans and competitors alike by reading my list of the Top 20 Five-Star Matches.)
