The Mental Ward: Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Rasslin’ …..

hacksaw

I first discovered pro wrestling in the mid-1980s. “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes doing battle with “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton inside a steel cage is one of my earliest wrestling memories. However, when I saw “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sting go 60 minutes at the first Clash of the Champions, I was hooked for life. THAT was storytelling. THAT was drama. THAT was pro wrestling. In my youth Hulkamania ran wild. In my high school and college years, The Attitude Era redefined the industry. In my adult years, things just haven’t been the same. A spark is missing. The sport I loved has morphed into something almost unrecognizable at times. Yet, I still watch. I cling to hope that pro wrestling will one day again return to past glory. Webster defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We’re all friends here. Welcome back to, “The Mental Ward.”

In the long storied history of professional wrestling, many spandex clad gladiators have grabbed our attention and captured our imaginations. These colorful characters remain in the deepest recesses of our minds years after their glory days in the ring have passed. The most memorable grapplers from our years of wrestling fandom are often those that we encounter early on in our initial discovery of the mat game. This column will take a look at some of the most bizarre, flamboyant, charismatic, and downright terrifying pro wrestlers of all time.

Kashin In: The Raw is The Price is Right Edition (6-29-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from The Verizon Center in Washington D.C. Brock Lesnar got destroyed last week and he’s recovering from his injuries. Seth Rollins is the King of the World with his loyal minions by his side.

Elsewhere, Bray Wyatt continues to play mind games with Roman Reigns leading up to their match at Battleground.

Finally, John Cena and Kevin Owens are on a collision course as they are set to face off in their third match which could easily become an instant classic if their first two outings are any indication.

The PWA Show: Babies, Bellas, & Brock’s Bogus Beatdown…..

RAW

This week Chad and Keila return for Episode 24 after a week off with Chad adjusting to fatherhood and having a newborn daughter in his life. They have plenty to say about everything that’s making headlines in the pro wrestling world. The duo discuss the fallout from the recent WWE Money in the Bank PPV, highlights and lowlights from this past Monday’s RAW, rumors of two top WWE stars that are possibly leaving the company, a new ROH World Champion being crowned, Jeff Jarrett appearing on TNA Impact Wrestling and what that could mean for the future of Global Force Wrestling, as well as a few TNA talent departures. Keila also shares her weekly words of wisdom with some sage advice for the WWE’s Divas division while Chad takes a few moments to remember  the late great “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel to close out the show. This is a short, sweet, and fun filled edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

Halfpint’s Point: Dixie Land

Dixie-Carter-Feet-468120

Halfpint here and I got something different for you this week

Ladies and Gentleman like every single man based in or From Nashville, TN I consider myself a songwriter because as we all know I’m in no way original and I conform to what everyone around me does. This here is a little Folk Song I redid for you fine folks here and will be copying at The PWA Show’s website. I was one of the 10 people able to watch TNA Impact this past Wednesday. It got me thinking of this song.  It was originally a Northern Minstrel Tune used in the American Civil War called Dixie Land. I rewrote the lyrics to better suit the times like Folk Tradition implies. Now this song is dedicated Solely to Dixie Carter Salinas who is the President of TNA and she has a T-shirt saying that TNA is better known as Dixie Land. So Dixie this is for you.

Glam Slam: Trevor Lee

trevor lee
Hi guys! Welcome back The Glam Slam! Each week I will spotlight the best of the best in the world of independent professional wrestling. Independent wrestling is the lifeblood of the industry. It’s the one remaining place where everything feels “pure”. It is where the dream still lives and the passion and love of the craft fuel each and every competitor. Simply put, it’s the best thing about professional wrestling and my personal favorite part. I hope you share the same feelings as I do and I hope you enjoy this column each week. This week we take a look at “Head Honcho” Trevor Lee.
Trevor Lee Caddell AKA “The Alpha Omega” was born September 30, 1993. He is one of the top young up and coming independent wrestlers in the sport today. He has made a name for himself being regularly seen throughout the southern United States, mostly in the Carolinas. He has captured both the CWF Mid-Atlantic Television Championship and claimed victory in the 2013 CWF Mid-Atlantic Johnny Weaver Memorial Cup. Trevor Lee has wrestled for such promotions as: CWF, EVOVLE, CZW, and PWG.
Although young in his career Lee has created a buzz especially with his matches in PWG. His triple threat match vs. Cedric Alexander and Andrew Everett was amazing! He definitely stands out as a guy to watch on the indy scene. He is super athletic and has tremendous strength with an awesome move set! At only 21 years old, he is already better than many currently signed to WWE or NXT. The sky’s the limit for this talented young superstar!

Brock Lesnar has reopened Suplex City and he’s looking for some new tenants to torment. Seth Rollins is at the top of the waiting list to get his ass handed to him by The Beast.

The answer to that question can be found throughout this blog. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.
