  • The NWA TV Title – My All Time Favorite Title

    My all time favorite title in wrestling history is the NWA (World) TV title.  It was by far the best looking title IMO and it had amazing champions.  If I ever bought a replica title, it would be that one: I had nothing to do with designing the IWA Mid-South heavyweight title but I always…

  • The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family – WWE’s Goldmine Feud

    The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family could be a feud that makes the WWE a ton of money if they do it correctly.  Unfortunately, this one has no chance to have the longevity of The Freebirds vs. The Von Erichs since it seems inevitable that The Shield is breaking up sooner rather than later.  It…

  • Antonio Cesaro vs. Daniel Bryan – WWE

    Daniel Bryan and Antonio Cesaro are two of the best WRESTLERS in the WWE today.  I had the privilege of working with both gentlemen during their time in IWA Mid-South.  Antonio Cesaro had his first match in the United States at an IWA Mid-South event in Clarksville, Indiana when he was still wrestling as Claudio…

  • CM Punk Quits WWE?

    It’s been 24 hours since Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer set the internet wrestling community abuzz by reporting that CM Punk had walked out of RAW on Monday and went home.  He did not have much information on the situation or an exact reason as to why CM Punk decided to quit but speculation…

  • Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan – MOTN At Royal Rumble

    There are no doubts in any sane’s person’s mind that the best match on the Royal Rumble PPV this past Sunday night was Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan in the opener.  The match had it all.  The fans were on the edge of their seats.  Both guys busted their asses.  They set the tone for…

  • Royal Rumble Rant – WWE Just Doesn’t Get It

    Mick Foley voiced what thousands of people watching the Royal Rumble last night felt after it ended.  The entire night showcased that the WWE just doesn’t get it.  They don’t understand their audience at all or they don’t care what their audience thinks.  That is the power that comes with having a monopoly on the…

  • Dusty Rhodes Hits Me With The Bionic Elbow

    Dusty Rhodes was one of the top wrestlers of the 1980s.  He could be seen on the Superstation TBS all across the country at the outset of cable television.  The son of a plumber.  The American Dream.  A guy that didn’t look like a great athlete.  He wasn’t a bodybuilder.  But he could connect with…

  • Scherzer and Kershaw’s Cy Young WWE Title Belts

    Max Scherzer had a tremendous season for the Detroit Tigers in 2013.  He finished with a 21-3 record and had a 2.90 ERA with 240 strikeouts and only 56 walks.  He helped lead the Detroit Tigers to the ALCS and won the 2013 AL Cy Young Award.  A lot of athletes have gone to getting…

  • Shane McMahon Appreciation

    I was always a fan of Shane McMahon during the Attitude Era of the WWF.  The kid was an heir to a billionaire and here he was just doing INSANE things in the ring, risking life and limb.  I can see where some of the wrestlers were not happy with him.  He would come out…

  • Jimmy Jacobs & Barbed Wire Bat

    Jimmy Jacobs and the barbed wire bat shot.  That is what I got asked about more than anything else when it  Jimmy himself came up with the diea thtat came to my 12 years in IWA Mid-South.  Even though I feuded with Ian Rotten a lot longer, it is the feud with Jimmy Jacobs that…
