This week’s Top Five is about pro wrestlers we truly miss seeing on our TV screens each and every week. Men and/or women wrestlers that either retired or passed on that we no longer get the privilege of being entertained by anymore.
It’s Saturday and today we have ’This Week in Wrestling’, the 48th of 2021. Today Brian takes a look at the once huge market that the McMahon family monopolized for years, that no longer seems to be in their control anymore and shares all the best wrestling content from this week.
Finally, Ring the Damn Bell has come back with useless wrestling facts! It’s time to drop some facts, stats and trivia on the business we all love or at least used to. Some of you Rooty poo, candy asses (No insult intended) know some of these facts, while others may not know any. Whatever the case may be, let us dive right in and maybe learn a little something…or nothing.
This is the 357th installment of the ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. A group of stories that delves into the darker, underbelly of pro wrestling. Many of the stories involve such subjects as sex, drugs, greed and in some cases even murder! As with every single story in the Sin series, I do not condone or condemn the alleged participants. We simply retell their stories by researching interviews, newspapers, magazines and various other sources of media.
It’s Saturday and today we have ’This Week in Wrestling’, the 41st of 2021. Today Brian looks at the possibility that the Dudley Boyz are no longer…”Boys” and shares all the best wrestling content from this week.
If you were to have a high profile match or attend a big time show and had a choice of wrestling arenas to wrestle or watch it from….what would be your top five arenas you would choose? It doesn’t matter how big or small or if the building still exists or not.
For all of its faults during its existence, Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) was for many wrestlers…a last chance to redeem a fallen career. Many referred to ECW as “the land of misfit toys,” a place where wrestlers who were mostly considered used up and/or unwanted to continue to ply their trade. Such was the case for Steve Austin, who in 1995, was all but tossed aside by WCW because he was injured.
Back in the 80’s and 90’s, it was very common to see some no name wrestler go up against a proven star of a promotion. Whether that be from the WWF, NWA/WCW, AWA or elsewhere, these nomads of professional wrestling were there to make the stars look great. They were known as enhancement talent, preliminary wrestlers or as many fans have come to know them…”jobbers.” While fans were clamoring to see big time match ups, these “squash matches” served a very important purpose. While perhaps not appreciated at the time, they were just as important as the stars themselves.
