fearnet: Horror writer Joe Hill’s Locke & Key was one of the hottest titles at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Though earlier this year Fox chose not to pick up the Locke & Key TV adaptation’s pilot for its fall season, the episode was shown at the con to a packed house, and received wild applause from the comic’s legions of fans. Hill himself was on hand to talk about both the comic...

turnbucklezine: wrestlingtheory: All quotes herein are from the July 25, 2011 Wrestling Observer Radio show. Hoo boy. Dave Meltzer on WWE Creative’s ideas on the Punk angle: “The idea that they were going to do, which I don’t want to get into, but it would have killed it dead.” Then why bring the point up? I get that… Is it me, or are a wealth of blog posts lately about how shitty other...

hittingthemark: I’ll reiterate, a great show. I’ll go as far and say it’s the best overall Raw I’ve seen since the initial Punk promo. Built around wrestling, but also including storyline development and humor. And yet, while on Twitter, I saw many complaints that they brought back Punk too…
Fair to Flair: What a Rush →
fairtoflair: Today’s gripe is that CM Punk was brought back too quickly and his huge storyline, arguably the biggest thing WWE’s done in years, is being rushed. Admittedly, things seem to be moving quickly and WWE certainly took a roundabout way to get to a CM Punk/John Cena rematch, but I think there’s more than meets the eye here and I have no doubt Punk will make it work the...

Cee Lo Green to perform at SummerSlam →
The four-time Grammy Award-nominee, whose song “Bright Lights Bigger City” is the official theme song of SummerSlam, will perform some of his hip-hop hits at WWE’s annual summer extravaganza.
Anonymous asked: from a storyline perspective, it doesn't make sense that they would show it on the wwe website. you said things like, they shouldnt have to hold our hands to make it more enjoyable, but i feel like putting it on an easily accessible website, that IS holding our hands. i've seen that video reblogged countless times already without it being on the official website. the fans who care about...
WWE acknowledges Punk crashing Comic Con
I’ve been seeing a handful of complaints about WWE.com showing the Comic Con footage where CM Punk crashed the party and mocked Triple H. Somehow, this hurts “kayfabe” and at least somewhat ruins the story for some. Kayfabe is not just dead, it’s an ancient relic, something that barely existed when I started watching wrestling in 1986. WWE’s in the business of...

CM Punk invaded Comic-Con →
wrestlespective: footnotesofwrestling: If you want to follow this story, watching RAW is only a part of it. WWE.com is the place where this will be fully chronicled. RAW is just one of the mediums they’re using to tell stories now. WWE’s franchise broadcast is their website. I’m very interested to see how effective WWE can be at storytelling in other mediums outside of TV, and what kind of...
Clip of the return of Beavis & Butt-Head. I haven’t watched MTV for over a decade now, but the return of Beavis & Butt-Head after a 14-year absence? Can’t miss it. At least it’s something on MTV that’s supposed to be stupid.
Wrestlespective: My rating system →
wrestlespective: Star ratings for wrestling matches are pretty silly. I think we can all agree on that. But evaluation systems have their use as a shorthand, so what’s a better way. Others have contributed good ideas, but here’s mine (this applies to matches, angles, promos and any other type of wrestling… Jason proposes a new idea for a wrestling ratings system. I like it so much, it...

fairtoflair: Listening to Michael Cole and Josh Mathews list off John Morrison’s endless ho-train of terrible nicknames while I watch John Morrison twirl in the air and climb shit will not make me like John Morrison any more than I already do not. Watching BIG ANDY talk about Silent Rage being born on a dirty mattress where he grew up, as he turns away REAL METH HEADS at his childhood meth...
Mi Amor →
I’m seeing people’s “faith” in professional wrestling be restored. I’m seeing transformations in the form of people who haven’t viewed wrestling in years, but have now since been reeled back in. I’m seeing people get more emotional during storylines. I’m seeing people become more intelligent. I’m seeing people just generally start to realize how fucking awesome sports entertainment is.

Rey Mysterio has never been WWE champion
wrestlespective: He’d be a strange choice given the storyline, but I’d dig it. I’m honestly fine with anyone in the tournament at this point… …even though they’d be a paper champion.

fairtoflair: Wow. The response to Money in the Bank so far has been overwhelmingly positive, when’s the last time that happened for a WWE PPV? I’m not even seeing much of the usual nitpicking from the most jaded of fans. What is happening? Surely no show could be that good, right? Let’s take a look. My MITB review
Money in the Bank preview →
I want to host a television show where I visit “haunted” places that were featured in paranormal investigation shows like Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures, etc. and hang out in the dark without any added sound effects, rapid cuts or spooky music. It’ll be really boring, but fun to prove how completely full of shit these people are.
