The PWA Show: Save Us Kevin Owens…..

PWA

Episode 44 comes at you this week with Chad & Keila talking in depth about recent events in the world of pro wrestling. They discuss this past week’s go home edition of WWE Monday Night RAW leading up to this Sunday’s Survivor Series where a brand new WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be crowned. How do they feel about the “Final 4” in the tournament? What are their thoughts on the controversial comments made by Paige directed at WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte? The duo also examine how Tyler Breeze has been presented since his main roster debut and they debate the idea that NXT may not be as mainstream as WWE would like us to believe. Kevin Owens mastery of Twitter is celebrated as Chad reads some of his better Tweets directed at fans recently and also recaps the Twitter war that erupted Monday night between Owens and actress, Melissa Joan Hart. Is this how heels should use social media? Keila offers up advice to WWE on how to more effectively use second and third generation stars without making them carbon copies of their famous fathers. Chad gives old school fans something to digest this week as he looks at the career of Japanese legend, Tenryu, who retired this week; pays his respects to former 4-Time AWA World Champion, Nick Bockwinkel, who passed away over the weekend; and he takes us back 30 years to the formation of the legendary Four Horsemen. Keila also brings up a great point about Kurt Angle and his career in WWE -vs- TNA. This show is loaded and has something for everyone. We hope you enjoy the latest edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

The Mental Ward: Hey! You Kids Get Off My Lawn!

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.”
