Eddie Guerrero and Vince McMahon [2004]
I’m not 100% sure, but I want to say this photo was taken after Eddie won the WWE Championship. Either way, this picture rules. Eddie talked in his book about how McMahon gave him another chance and another shot at life by re-accepting him into the WWE. When Guerrero became the WWE Champion, it wasn’t just an accomplishment of his career, it was a realization that he had officially conquered his demons. Eddie Guerrero is a true inspiration for anyone who isn’t where they want to be, and who’s willing to do anything it takes to get there.

+ Stone Cold Steve Austin on gay marriage:

"I’ve got some damn good friends that are gay. I’m absolutely for same sex marriage.
I don’t think that there is a god that says you cannot do this, you cannot do that. If two cats can’t get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest 5 kids, then go to prison and accept god, he’s going to let him into heaven. After the fact that he did all that s**t? See, that’s all horse s**t to me, that don’t jive with me.”

Fandango (w/ Summer Rae) Vs. William Regal
WWE Raw - April 22nd, 2013

This match took place only a few weeks after the legendary “night after Mania” in 2013 where the fans “sang” Fandango’s theme. Since a substantial portion of the crowd was from the United Kingdom, it was a given that Fandango perform and get a rousing reaction against one of their own: William Regal!

D-Generation X [1999]
Very few pro wrestlers are able to pinpoint the exact moment that they realized they wanted to be a pro wrestler. For me, it was on an episode of WWF Raw that aired on a Saturday (due to a dog show or a golf tournament or some stupid bullshit). DX was in the ring giving their “Let’s get ready to SUCK IT!” speech and Billy laid under Triple H in order to enhance the aesthetics of the promo. While H was giving his speech, you could hear some faint laughing and Triple H paused, then dropped the mic to Mr. Ass’ mouth, promoting Gunn to lose it and laugh his ass off. 
It’s odd to say, but it was that exact moment that I said “That’s what I want to do for a living.” Seeing these guys who I admired and sought to be like having so much fun right before they beat up the Corporation just spoke to me. It said “This is not only glory, this is not only fame, but this is fun.” It showed me the path I wanted to take, and I’ve never looked back.

+ Dusty Rhodes [1980]
When Dusty Rhodes broke apart of the nasty tag team he shared with Dick Murdoch, he showed the fans a side of himself that people were shocked to immediately take a liking to. Rhodes’ charismatic personality and ability to empathize with the fans made him rise to a limelight that promoters couldn’t have dreamed of. Even covered in blood, Dusty was a man for the people. A wrestler who was far from afraid to stand up and say “this is for US!” Truly an amazing shot of a legendary athlete.

+ Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart [1997]
When Bret Hart was announced as the number one contender for the  WWF Championship against The Undertaker, the Heartbreak Kid begged Vince McMahon to be a part of the match. When Michaels was announced as the referee for the match, Hart attacked both Michaels and McMahon, leading into the match at SummerSlam. Since Hart had been anti-Michaels as well as anti-American, he showed more disdain during this match than he had in previous encounters, leading to him spitting in the face of HBK after he snatched a chair from the Hitman. When Shawn went to respond by swinging a chair at Hart, he instead mistakenly hit The Undertaker, leading to Bret Hart’s 5th and final WWF Championship reign.

Ron Simmons Vs. Junkyard Dog
NWA World Championship Wrestling - April 29th, 1989

In a match that was supposed to be “face vs. face”, Ron Simmons acted a little iffy in the fans’ eyes, shocking to the Junkyard Dog. This was only magnified further by the tactics of fast counting referee, Teddy Long.

Yes. Please.

+ Ivory Vs. Victoria [2005]
This is the kind of match that made you nod and say “Good. Good, WWE. Good.” When two gals who were focused on pro wrestling rather than glory stepped into the ring, they delivered something to make their trainers proud: a hell of a wrestling match. Ivory, Victoria, these are two names that are synonymous with pro wrestling greatness.

WWE Reporting Daniel Bryan’s Father Passed Away Unexpectedly

WWE.com is reporting that Daniel Bryan’s father has unexpectedly passed away, and that Bryan was made aware of his father’s death upon returning from his honeymoon.

Despite his father passing away, Bryan has “insisted on performing” on Raw tonight.

CHAMPION.

All of my condolences to Daniel Bryan and his family. I can’t even begin to imagine, but I’m sure if anything, Daniel’s father rests well knowing that his son is the biggest star in the world.

+ Kofi Kingston [2011]
As far as a professional wrestling career goes, very few have been as decorated as Kingston has within the last 7 years. So far, Kingston has racked up 4 Intercontinental Championship reigns, 2 reigns as the WWE United States Champion, 2 WWE Tag Team Championship reigns (w/ Evan Bourne and R-Truth) and one WWE World Tag Team Championship reign with CM Punk! Kofi has done all of this without somehow not rising about a certain spot on the card, which is reassuring that once he focuses on capturing the WWE Championship, we may be seeing the dawn of a new era.

Brad Armstrong Vs. Ric Flair
WCW Worldwide - March 7th, 1998

Is it just me, or does Brad Armstrong resemble Ken Anderson a bit? Either way, this is a match pitting two guys who can, and do, go hold for hold, countering each other’s offense with ease and jockeying for a position from bell to bell. It’s not a GREAT match, but it’s a good match. Decent ending, too. Enjoy!

+ “The punk scene told me I could do what I wanted to do. They stood for things that were not popular amongst the mainstream. We were all bonded. If you knew what was going on, then you knew what was going on. My church was VFW halls, dirty clubs, and basements. The guys in these bands inspired me then, they made me who I am today and still inspire me now. I encourage you to go find your punk rock, to find your lucha libre, to find your professional wrestling, and let it lead you to your life. The punk rock scene told me to do whatever I wanted to do, and that I could be what I wanted to be… and so, I am.” - Lita
