WCW. Ted Turner’s baby. The place where the big boys played. I bled WWF growing up and never watched much WCW at all. Mostly everything I know about WCW has come from watching clips and shows after the company had shut down. That doesn’t mean I can’t be an authority on WCW talent though. Here I will run down the ten very best WCW guys. Most these men did have runs with other companies but this will strictly be based on what they did during their time in Turnerland. Check out the list after the jump.
Hulk Hogan has consistently been posted about on the dirt sheets for years now. Whether it was about him going to TNA, his sex tape, or his current contract situation. It seems you can at least count on one Hogan post a day. He is still one of, if not the, biggest name in professional wrestling. Hogan has been grabbing recent headlines due to his contract expiring with TNA. Rumors quickly began swirling about a possible return to WWE. As of this writing the Hulkster is still a free agent. Apparently he has been in talks with WWE but reportedly the company low balled Hogan. He was featured in ads for Bound For Glory but was quickly removed and didn’t appear on the show. It seems that Hulk Hogan is the only one who knows what is happening to Hulk Hogan, maybe.
The annual Hell in a Cell PPV is less than a week away now, and it has me thinking about the match itself, and the legacy it has left behind. Hell in a Cell used to be the be all end all match for only the most heated of rivalries. The match was reserved only for the top stars and the main programs. Now it is an annual thing and much of the lore of the match has gone away. While I wish we got rid of these gimmick PPVs and kept these matches special, it doesn’t mean that Hell in a Cell is any less cool. In fact it is probably the coolest match concept in the history of wrestling. So, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and revisit the very best that this gruesome match has to offer. These are the top 10 best Hell in a Cell matches, find out what they are after the jump.
To say that TNA is in a state of flux right now would be the understatement of the year. It seems every day something new is coming out about TNA’s contract issues, travel issues, money issues, or a combination thereof. Just because the company has become the butt of everyone’s jokes recently, doesn’t mean they can’t put out some decent wrestling still. Yes, the nonsensical booking and extreme misuse of talent can grow aggravating at times, and TNA doesn’t have the luxury of being WWE, where we all complain but continue to watch RAW and follow the product more so out of habit than anything else. But fuck it, maybe Bound For Glory 2013 can right the ship and steer TNA into smoother waters, or maybe it will turn them into the hurricane many of us picture the company hitting. Find out after the jump.
Pro Wrestling Guerrilla continues to be the very best that independent wrestling has to offer, not only in the south west but the entire country. October 19th, Matt Rushmore proved this once again.
