Kashin In: The Cheers to The Hot Rod Edition (8-3-2015)

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from The SAP Center in San Jose, California. Summerslam is a little under three weeks away and WWE is firing on all cylinders when it comes to their marquee matches featuring Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker and John Cena vs. Seth Rollins with the latter match being tentative due to Cena’s broken nose. The company is trying their best to market Summerslam on par with WrestleMania and I think that’s a very smart strategy because it gives fans a reason to look forward to the PPV if WWE is actually putting in the time and effort to make it feel like a must-see event.

The PWA Show: Full Metal Mayhem…..

Hammerjack

Episode 28 comes your way with tons of news and thoughts by Chad & Keila. The duo examine the controversial comments made by the legendary Hulk Hogan and the lasting effect those statements may have on his legacy. WWE RAW is also discussed at length including a series of first time matchups that anchored the most recent broadcast as well as another solid performance from John Cena, this time with a shattered nose upon his face. They also address some rumors swirling around including:the future of Sting in WWE, a potential character change for Adam Rose, and a possible new member joining the Wyatt Family. More talk about the future of TNA comes up as well as the fallout from the initial set of TV tapings from Global Force Wrestling. This week on “The PWA Hotseat”, Chad is joined by one half of the Southern Tag Team Champions, Hammerjack. The veteran brawler takes fans on a journey throughout his career from his early years growing up in a tough Baltimore neighborhood through his move to Nashville and entry into the sport of professional wrestling. He also talks at length about how his storming the ring as a fan from the crowd led to him getting noticed and thus launched his career. Not many can claim that their very first match was a no ropes barbed wire match, but Hammerjack can! His passion for the promotion side of pro wrestling is clearly evident as he discusses the successes and failures of Crossfire Wrestling, the rise of his new promotion Slam-Pro Wrestling, and the reasons why many promoters today fail. It’s a very interesting look into the man behind the mayhem. Don’t miss this episode of The PWA Show….YOUR pro wrestling authority!

NJPW 25th G1 Climax Tournament: Week 2

G1

Editors Note: . . . Its really difficult to carry on business as usual when Heaven has gained another Famous Wrestler.  Roddy Piper could talk them in the building that’s for sure. For most current Wrestling Fans it was Hogan that got their attention, but it was Piper who made them listen. Sure I can talk about his run with Hogan but that would leave out his first World Record 10 Seconds against Larry “The Axe” Henning, His bloody match with Greg Valentine at the first Starcade,  Or Certainly one of my favorites (and definitely a future match I’ll discuss in my Forgotten Match Series) when he faced off against Bret Hart in WM 8. So tonight wherever you are stand tall remove your hat take a shot and hear the bell toll 10 times for the man who has finally ran out of Bubblegum.

Glam Slam: Cheerleader Melissa

Melissa

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.

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 one of the best female pro wrestlers around today, Cheerleader Melissa!

The Mental Ward: Straying From the Script…..

SCRIPT

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.”

Old School Spotlight: “Crusher” Jerry Blackwell

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 Welcome to The First-Timers Club Edition (7-27-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw emanated from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, OK. After last week’s battle between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker, it was only right that both men take the week off and allow the moment to marinate for a while. With the marquee match for Summerslam set, WWE could focus on building the rest of the card. Cena vs. Rollins has been hinted at, but what other surprises did the company have in store to ensure that Summerslam is the most must-see event since WrestleMania? 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.

The PWA Show: Picture Takin’ and Match Makin’…..

Mike kalasnik

Chad and Keila return to guide you through another week of news and stories from around the pro wrestling landscape. This week the dynamic duo cover WWE Battleground, this past Monday’s episode of RAW, the future of Kevin Owens, the current reconstruction of the WWE Divas division, a podcast beef between two legendary WWE Hall of Famers, TNA’s continued financial woes, Ring of Honor’s legal action against Global Force Wrestling, and much more! The week on “The PWA Hotseat”, sponsor of the show, Mike Kalasnik, joins Chad to discuss how he got involved in pro wrestling as a ringside photographer and how that led him to become a booker for a successful and growing independent wrestling organization. It’s an interesting look behind the curtain at an element of the industry very few fans ever get to experience. Sit back and enjoy Episode 27 of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

Halfpints Point: 25th G1 Climax Week 1

G1

Editors Note: I sent Halfpint several messages today begging him to talk about the Hogan Deal for his Halfpint’s Point but when he finally woke up around 7pm he insisted that he be the only Wrestling Broadcast Journalist to NOT talk about Hollywood Hulk Hogan because in in his words “Who gives a shit when the best damn wrestling in the world is going on? Why would I waste space about some horrible stupid old racist has-been. Seriously the man has been given more chances than Adam Pac-man Jones, Terrell Owens, and Superstar Billy Graham combined, and he still messes it up I’ve got more important things to talk about.” He sent us this instead which we hope you enjoy.
