The Mental Ward: Danger Lies Ahead…..

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.”

The PWA Show: Good Guys Wear White…..

Rollins

Episode 36 of our podcast finds Chad & Keila with plenty of thoughts about WWE Night of Champions as well as this past Monday’s edition of RAW. What did the duo like about the pay per view? What drove them nuts? What creative direction do they see things heading for the future? Chad talks at length about the way WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, has been booked during his title reign. The difference between being a beatable heel and a week excuse for a champion is a fine line that WWE has crossed at times with Rollins always seemingly losing non-title matches particularly to John Cena as of late. Is there a method to this madness or is WWE Creative killing the golden goose? Keila rejoices at Paige’s apparent heel turn, Natalya’s homecoming, as well as the crowning of new WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte, and what all those things may mean for the future of the Divas division. Brocktober is covered as WWE is making everything about the Beast Incarnate next month on the road to Hell in a Cell and a third clash with The Undertaker. Is this a desperate attempt to spike sagging ratings or just smart business? The sudden lovefest from WWE directed at one Eric Bischoff is discussed as well with possible motives for this surprising development examined. The renewal of Lucha Underground is also discussed and what it may mean for free agent talents in the near future. Our roving reporter, Halfpint, also checks in with some great coverage of last weekend’s NWA Southern All-Star Wrestling event from Cookeville, TN. He managed to catch up with several key players in that event including NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jax Dane, “The Ironman” Rob Conway, Southern Tag Team Champions Hammerjack and Jernigan AKA Monsters of Mayhem, and more! This episode truly has something for every wrestling fan so get comfy, push play, and enjoy The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!
