Modern Smarkism: A Brief Look

Modern Smarkism: A Brief Look
Over the many years since its inception, wrestling has been through many transformations. From the early days of the Greek Olympic sport, to the strong-man carnival attractions, and ending with the modern spectacular of World Wrestling Entertainment, amongst other companies, the manly soap opera has evolved with the times, as well as the fan base. But let us start with the earliest form of wrestling as most of us know: The boom of television wrestling. The... 

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review
June PPVs for WWE are typically a mishmash of finishing feuds and planting the seeds for bigger ones building up to Summerslam, one of the original ‘big four’ PPVs. Ones like Payback can be ‘sleeper’ PPVs that deliver far better than expected, and actually have the benefit of low expectations going in. With The Shield still staying strong and Evolution not giving up after their loss at Extreme Rules, it was inevitable that... 

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review
With the Road To Wrestlemania over, WWE once again faced that yearly question of ‘what now?’ So much of the year is spent building up to their biggest spectacular that they often struggle once they’ve reached the peak – in this case Daniel Bryan overcoming all odds to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title and the YES! movement celebrating worldwide. With the shocking result in the Undertaker/Brock Lesnar match and new stars like... 

WWE – Batista: The Animal Unleashed Blu-ray Review

WWE – Batista: The Animal Unleashed Blu-ray Review
You almost have to feel sorry for Dave Batista. Here’s a guy that made his way up through the company, from working with Reverend D-Von to getting his big break in Evolution alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. From there, Batista became a bona fide main eventer, headlining PPVs and holding both the World Heavyweight and WWE championships numerous times. Yet somewhere along the way, fans fell out of love with ‘The Animal’ and...

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review
If anyone was to ask me what my favourite gimmick match of all time was, I could answer that in a split second – the Royal Rumble. There is no match more exciting, full of superstars and complex booking over the space of an hour or so. It’s a match that not only brings all the current feuds together, but reignites old ones and sets the wheels in motion for new going forward. After all, it’s the first stop on that famous Road to Wrestlemania,... 

WWE – Shawn Michaels – Mr Wrestlemania DVD review

WWE – Shawn Michaels – Mr Wrestlemania DVD review
While it’s easy to think of Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena as the biggest names to ever grace a wrestling ring, when it comes to actual in-ring performance there’s always another name thrown into the mix – Shawn Michaels. He may not have crossed over into the mainstream as an action star, he never had the bodybuilder type look or anything like that, but you always knew that once that bell rang he would put on a...

WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 DVD review

WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 DVD review
Truly living up to his mantra of Never Give Up, John Cena shocked the world once again by returning from a tricep tear in just a couple of months. He walked away after his loss to Daniel Bryan at Summerslam in August, and then Vickie Guerrero announced him as appearing at Hell in a Cell in October. WWE never really got the chance to adapt to a Cena-less environment so we’ll never know if anyone could have stepped up to the plate, but Cena’s...
