The Mental Ward: Less Is More…..

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.

In the long storied history of professional wrestling, many spandex clad gladiators have grabbed our attention and captured our imaginations.

The PWA Show: Bellabrating and Contemplating…..

NOC 2

Episode 35 comes to you this week with a Bellabration in progress! Chad & Keila discuss Nikki Bella becoming the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in history. The duo also look at the very lackluster go home edition of Monday Night Raw that was supposed to whet our appetites for this weekend’s Night of Champions Pay Per View. How did WWE do in making us want to watch their big event Sunday? Jeff Jarrett’s deal with TNA is also examined as it becomes clear why Double J recently again entered into a working agreement with the struggling brand that he helped establish over a decade ago. The focus quickly turns again to talk of the upcoming Night of Champions. The PWA Drinking Game returns as Chad & Keila both give their thoughts, analysis, and predictions for the big event. Who do they believe will walk out of Houston wearing gold? Who will Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns recruit to help them battle the Wyatt Family? Will Nikki Bella’s diva dominance continue? All this and much more is contemplated during this festive edition of our show. So pour a glass of bubbly, put on your party hats, and let’s Bellabrate this week on The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!
