Breaking News: Ludvig Borga Passes Away

Posted by Steven Ransiear On January - 10 - 2010
Tony Halme (47), better known to wrestling fans as Ludvig Borga, has passed away at his home in Finland. No cause of death has been determined and the police are underway with a criminal investigation. Halme worked for multiple promotions including the WWF, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and the Catch Wrestling Association in Germany. Borga was on his way to a major push in the WWF with some believing he would become champion before an injury sidelined him ultimately leading to him leaving the company. Borga did capture the IWGP Tag Team Championship with Scott Norton during his career. Aside from wrestling, ...
For years now wrestlers have been going by different names in the ring. Whether a nickname or a totally different name from what they were born with, wrestlers like to have cool-sounding names. Some wrestlers did this on their own to create a cooler persona, while others were told to come up with something, and some were even told, "This is your new name whether you like it or not." Now it is no secret that many of today's biggest stars have altered or totally different names, but does it help or just change things a little bit? For example, would Shawn Michaels ...

2009 Pro Wrestling Awards: Best PPV of the Year

Posted by Shane H. On January - 10 - 2010
A wrestling promotion's pay-per-view is when we get the best that the company can offer. Well, at least that is supposed to be what happens. It is not always the case, especially when it comes to the big two: WWE and TNA. There were some bright spots in 2009 when it came to shelling out some cash for a pay-per-view. Which is the best, though? That is what I am hoping you help decide. Ed. Note: Keep in mind that the choices are not ordered in any specific way.   1. Turning Point, TNA This pay-per-view will be remembered for the final two matches that ...

2009 Pro Wrestling Awards: Worst Wrestler of the Year

Posted by Shane H. On January - 9 - 2010
We always look at the best, but to switch things up, how about we look at the worst? Wrestling isn't always pretty and this year wasn't any different than others. Instead of separating gender here, I'll just throw the garbage out together. Who was 2009's worst wrestler?   1. Hornswoggle, WWE I'm not going to go by height but let's get the little fellow out first. He once was called Mr. McMahon's illegitimate child but was later found out to be Finlay's son. Now, the "little bastard" is running around with the big boys in Shawn Michaels and Triple H, DX. Chavo Guerrero had the unfortunate ...
For some time now, everyone has associated steroids with pro-wrestling. It's funny how nowadays the NFL has more people on them than the WWE does. Yet, many hate on the WWE for having all sorts of blown-up steroid freaks even though only a small percentage of the roster used them to get big in the past few years since the Wellness Policy was instituted. And even before that, most on the roster weren't on them this past decade. Pain killers are the worst thing being used in pro-wrestling now, not steroids. And it's for obvious reasons. I mean, as a WWE performer alone ...

WWE’s 2009 Survivor Series Staggeringly Low Buy-Rate

Posted by Scott Manyard On January - 8 - 2010
I was milling through the Internet, as I usually do, and I found a rather interesting article about 2009's Survivor Series buy-rate. It said that the buy-rate for 2009's Survivor Series was down a stunning 29.5 percent from only a year ago, and even 34percent down from 2007. Only 225,000 homes bought the pay-per-view, to put this in perspective 211,000 homes bought "Breaking Point" in its first year as a PPV. I'm sure the head honchos at WWE were not to pleased to find this out, considering that Survivor Series is supposed to be one of the "Big Four" PPV's, (Royal Rumble, ...

Screw TNA Wrestling, I’ll Stick to Bad Show Hosts

Posted by Quinn Gammon On January - 8 - 2010
Surprised by the title of this article? You really shouldn't be. Anyone who tuned into the atrocity that was TNA's three-hour Monday Night IMPACT special was robbed and castrated of their wrestling dignity. If you feel that the above statement is overly harsh, I encourage you to check out the product for yourself on YouTube—if you get your rocks off on careers dying on national television that is. I'm afraid I have to retract a statement in my previous article. I claimed that there are fans out there that would rather see the ten thousandth incarnation of the nWo than John Cena. While ...
There was a time when TNA was the talk of the town, twice in fact. There was the time when its X Division was superior to its heavyweight, and then we were lucky enough to see quality women wrestling thanks to their Knockouts. Currently, however, TNA has relegated its X Division to the outhouse, only showcasing those men when it seems there is five to seven minutes to fill on a pay-per-view card. The X Division champion, Amazing Red, before Monday, hadn’t been on television in over a month. As for the women, there are still quality wrestlers there, but since the departure ...

TNA Can’t Help but Fail if They Follow the Old WCW Game Plan

Posted by Josh McCain On January - 8 - 2010
To start things off, I'm going to lay all my cards out on the table. I'm a WWE homer.  Always have been and more than likely, always will be.  With that said, it doesn't mean I shun other organizations. For instance, the greatest storyline in the history of the business was the initial nWo storyline. WCW had everyone believe that Hall and Nash weren't a part of WCW and were quite literally sent over by Vince.  Brilliance! Also, TNA started out strong.  They had a roster full of talented youngsters who were hungry and the product they put out, though not as ...

Wrestler Bryan Danielson Headed to Developmental

Posted by Steven Ransiear On January - 8 - 2010
-UPDATE: Danielson himself requested the trip to developmental to work off ring rust. At last night's Florida Championship Wrestling (WWE's developmental territory) event, it was announced that Bryan Danielson would be debuting for the company at next week's TV taping. This goes against multiple reports that Danielson would skip developmental and go straight to either RAW, Smackdown, or ECW. Danielson worked a dark match against Chavo Guerrero before the Jan. 4 RAW. Many felt this would be the final step before seeing Danielson on WWE television. Unfortunately for fans of Danielson, this may mean that we don't see Danielson for some time. Many independent stars ...
