The Mental Ward: I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore…..

MW

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 Bray Wyatt Becomes Zeus Edition (11-2-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. After last week’s show, positivity was brimming over like a pot of gold. It seemed as if WWE decided to wake the hell up and give fans a reason to watch their television shows during the fall season. Did the trend continue or did they fall back into their old ways by boring the audience to tears? 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.

The PWA Show: Some Like It Hot…..

LAWLER FIREBALL

Episode 41 of The PWA Show has arrived! Hear Chad & Keila recap last weekend’s WWE Hell in a Cell PPV event and the following night’s RAW. How did they feel about the shocking return of Alberto Del Rio? Which talents stand to benefit the most from the absence of John Cena and Randy Orton? Did Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker go too far in a PG Era? Which top WWE star has suffered another injury setback? What pro wrestling icon recently saw a popular tourist stop bearing his name be closed for good? Which popular independent tag team signed an exclusive contract with a national promotion? All these questions and more are answered this week. Chad also discusses his experience last weekend at the third annual Superstars of Wrestling Fanfest in Rome, GA hanging with WWE Hall of Famers Scott Hall, “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, Ron Simmons, and other greats of the squared circle. Our roving reporter, “Halfpint”, was in Jackson, TN last weekend for USA Championship Wrestling’s All-Star Tribute to legendary Memphis wrestling announcer, Lance Russell. Chad talks about the main event of that card featuring Terry Funk -vs- Jerry “The King” Lawler. For one night, the clocks were turned back and time stood still. A hot crowd in west Tennessee was reminded of why they love pro wrestling and just who exactly is “The King”. There’s something old and something new and plenty of things just for you on this week’s edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority.

It was Saturday night October 24, 2015. You couldn’t fool me or the fans though. Going into the Oman Arena was like going back in time. At least that’s the reasoning I had in my head for why it was so difficult getting into the building. After getting in and finding out where my seat was, I made my way over to who I think is the greatest announce team in Wrestling History.

Kashin In: The When Opportunity Knocks Edition (10-26-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California. A select few can say they have gone to hell and back. That was the theme of last night’s Hell in a Cell PPV. Roman Reigns exorcised his demons by defeating Bray Wyatt. Seth Rollins sent Corporate Kane to the unemployment line. John Cena was sent packing as he lost the United States Championship to Alberto Del Rio in a shocker. Charlotte showed Nikki whose boss by successfully defending her Divas Championship. Kevin Owens dispatched of Ryback to retain his Intercontinental Title. The New Day outsmarted The Dudley Boys to keep the Tag Team Championship. Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell as they both bled crimson red. Taker fought valiantly, but he came up short. Then, he was destroyed by The Wyatt Family as they carried him out of the ring to end the PPV on a weird, but interesting note.
