Hi guys! Welcome back to this week’s edition of The Glam Slam! NXT aired a pre-recorded show from several weeks back and Smackdown was, well…..Smackdown so let’s take a look!
NXT (Air Date: 4/8/15)
This episode of NXT was recorded at WrestleMania Axxess and featured a tournament to determine which superstar would be rewarded with a spot in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 31. Hideo Itami, Tyler Breeze, Finn Balor and Adrian Neville battled it out to see who would get that spot so let’s take a look back and see how it all came about!
Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the O2 Arena in London, England. The annual trek to the U.K. shortly after WrestleMania has become a time honored tradition over the years. The crowds are rowdy and the matches and/or segments are memorable. Did WWE deliver a show that wowed the London crowd or did the lively audience hijack the show and made it about themselves? With Extreme Rules a little over two weeks away, the latter scenario would be counterproductive to say the least. I guess you have to keep reading to find out to see how it all panned out. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.
Chad & Keila return this week to cover all the major news stories from the pro wrestling world. What were their thoughts on RAW this past week? Why does Chad believe WWE is on the right track creatively? What does Keila have to say about the abrupt retirement of AJ Lee? How do they feel about the announcement that WWE plans to move Smackdown to the USA Network starting next year? The dynamic duo also discuss news from TNA, ROH, Lucha Underground, New Japan, and Global Force Wrestling. New champions are crowned, contacts aren’t renewed, and talents are making moves. They also try to find a fitting punishment for their roving reporter, Halfpint, as he dropped the ball and was unable to secure any interviews or live coverage from his trip to Sparta, TN for Slam Pro Wrestling’s Slamfest 2015 event last weekend. Will he be subjected to scrubbing toilets? Will he be forced to endure the lethal “Chop Challenge” from fellow PWA Team member, Stephanie York? Worse still, will he be forced to worship at the altar of……Vince Russo? Keila really shows that she has a mean streak in designing his punishment. Don’t miss this fun filled edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!
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 weekly look at some of the most bizarre, flamboyant, charismatic, and downright terrifying pro wrestlers of all time.
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.”

- Bayley Defeated Emma. Emma came out almost making fun of her once bubbly gimmick looking very annoyed. I like the change in Emma’s character and maybe the change will be beneficial to her in the future. I also wish they would change Bayley’s gimmick as well. The pacing of this match was off I am not sure if it was because Emma is not used to wrestling as heel or if their chemistry was just off either way, not a terrible match but of course there is always room for improvement!
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. This week’s show would give us a clear indication of what’s hot and what’s not in WWE. With Brock Lesnar indefinitely suspended/vacationing on his John Deere Tractor in Minnesota, it’s important that the company keeps the main event scene interesting while the mid-card begins to heat up with John Cena and Daniel Bryan holding the Intercontinental and United States titles respectively. Will Roman Reigns continue to step up to the plate after his strong showing at WrestleMania? Most importantly, will the fans join him on his quest to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion by working his way from the bottom to the top? The answer to these pressing questions can be found throughout this blog. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.
This week Chad & Keila discuss Wrestlemania and the fallout from Santa Clara as well as the RAW after Mania. What did they think of this year’s Showcase of the Immortals? How do they feel about the direction WWE is headed after their biggest show of the year? They cover this plus all the news from around the world of pro wrestling as usual. Also, they are joined this week on “The PWA Hotseat” by the voice of NWA Southern All-Star Wrestling, Ella de la Vega. She will be handling the ring announcing duties at Slam Pro Wrestling’s SlamFest 2015 event this weekend as well. She talks about her life and career in the crazy world of pro wrestling. Chad also reads the very first listener e-mail in the inaugural PWA Mailbag segment. Trust us, you don’t want to miss that! Sit back, relax, and enjoy this edition of The PWA Show….YOUR pro wrestling authority!
I quit watching WWE over three months ago and I’ve been searching for something to quench my professional wrestling thirst ever since. After three grueling months of enduring some less than desirable alternatives, I’ve found it! It takes place in a grungy abondoned warehouse in Boyle Heights, CA, affectionately called “The Temple”. I invite you to join me as we go underground and I bring you my thoughts on the newest phenemenon in professional wrestling, Lucha Underground.
