ROH World Champion Tyler Black [2010]
When the wildly popular and internationally despised Age Of The Fall team came to an end, Tyler Black defeated his former teammate, Jimmy Jacobs, to signify the end of their feud. Shortly after, he disappeared from active competition in order to have surgery on his neck, returning to ROH and being immediately thrust into the title hunt. After wrestling Austin Aries to a 60-minute time limit draw, the decision was made to have the two face off yet again with judges at ringside in the case of a draw. The judges would prove to be needless as Black defeated Aries by pinfall to become the ROH World Champion.
Though his winning of the championship was well-received by ROH fans, the glory wouldn’t last long, as the new broke the following Summer that Black had signed a contract with the WWE. ROH fans immediately labeled him a sellout (something that would carry through in his career years later) and turned on Black, which led to him in turn, turning on the fans. After threatening to take the ROH World Championship with him to the WWE, Black was defeated by Roderick Strong for the title at Glory By Honor IX.

Paul Burchill (w/ Shelly) Vs. The Road Warrior
WWE Velocity - May 6th, 2006

I can never understand, in my entire life of living, how the WWE dropped the ball with Paul Burchill. This is a guy who has a hell of a body and can wrestle his ass off, not to mention made the pirate gimmick totally work for him. In this video, he’s joined by Shelly, his pirate wench, who only appears with him in this one instance. Shortly after, she attempts to get in touch with him at OVW, but is unsuccessful in getting more “pirate love”.

+ I keep forgetting that Johnny Swinger was in the WWE for an entire cup of coffee. The dude’s had quite a career being “roster member #61”, wrestling for ECW, WCW, the WWE, and TNA. That’s got to be pretty weird to always kind of be there but never quite be one of the top guys.

+ Shelly Martinez as Ariel [October 2011]
There is a very, very low demographic in wrestling history of sexy, dark-minded females in pro wrestling. Among them are Victoria, Daffney, Paige, and in 2006, Shelly Martinez joined that circle as the popular ECW vampiress, Ariel. Ariel was the manager by the side of Kevin Thorn who would also wrestle in several matches, but was unfortunately released from the WWE before gaining any momentum in key storylines. It’s a shame, really, especially considering why she was released. She’s a beautiful gal who had an amazing body and a great aura about her, and she’s one of the few Divas who I truly miss.

+ JBL Vs. Eddie Guerrero [June 27th, 2004]
If there was ever a more emotional, hatred-fueled feud in professional wrestling history, Eddie and JBL worked tirelessly to top it. In terms of great wrestling action, great character development, and gripping television, this was, without a doubt, the best feud of 2004.
The long journey from rookie to WWE Champion was no easy road for Eddie Guerrero, who finally captured the WWE Championship from Brock Lesnar at No Way Out in February of 2004. After a successful title defense at WrestleMania XX, where many assumed he would lose the title, Guerrero’s next challenger was the boisterous JBL. Having undergone a total makeover, JBL went from the beloved beer-drinking Texan to the despised millionaire, flaunting his eccentricities by having a limo drive him to the ring and donning a Stetson hat.
When JBL’s demeanor changed, as did his focus. He no longer wanted to be the focal point of every brutal encounter in the WWE, he now wanted to be the champion. In order to get into the head of WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero, JBL’s focus on downsizing the immigration of Mexicans to America increased, in a classic promo that showed JBL defending the country against hopeful fence-hoppers. This infuriated Guerrero, whose family are of Mexican descent, and he fought harder in his title defenses against JBL. Their first one-on-one contest for the WWE Championship on pay per view was at Judgment Day, where Guerrero retained the title by winning via disqualification. Two weeks later, SmackDown General Manager Kurt Angle declared that JBL would once again be fighting for the title at The Great American Bash, giving JBL the option to choose the stipulation.
The stipulation that JBL chose was a Texas Bullrope Match for the WWE Championship. Though the two wrestlers had a strong showing, the match ended in controversy as both JBL and Guerrero had touched three corners of the ring. When JBL went for the fourth corner, Guerrero attempted to jump over JBL and successfully touched the corner. However, when Kurt Angle came out to shed some light on the situation, he showed that Guerrero had actually knocked JBL into the corner, showing that JBL had actually touched it first. Because of this, JBL was declared the WWE Champion, in a reign that would last for 280 days.

The Hart Foundation Vs. The Brain Busters (w/ Bobby Heenan)
WWF SummerSlam - August 28th, 1989

The WWF has had some questionable booking in past years, but one thing that boggles my mind is this match. Not only are The Hart Foundation monstrously over in it, but the fans don’t seem to react at all to The Brain Busters. While Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard are incredibly talented wrestlers, their pairing in the WWF didn’t garner much of a reaction either way. It made sense, to me, for The Hart Foundation to be winning the WWF World Tag Team Championships in what was scheduled to be a match for the titles, since the fans clearly wanted Anvil and Bret to pick up the win. However, the match was changed to a non-title match in the SummerSlam kick-off pre-show, for some strange reason.

Spoiler Alert

What confuses me about this is that The Hart Foundation don’t win the match anyway, as they’re defeated by The Brain Busters. It would have made perfect sense for the match to continue to be a match for the titles, since the champions didn’t lose, and it could have built to be The Hart Foundation continuing the chase the titles. Instead, The Brain Busters win a standard tag team match for no reason and then lose the titles to Demolition two months later. Does anyone know why?

Also, Tony Schiavone is commentating for this match. Kind of blows my mind that he worked for the WWF and then years later, buried the show on Nitro. Where is he today? Certainly not in the Hall Of Fame…

Stone Cold Steve Austin is fluent in Spanish.

Not a lie in sight. Spot on.

mengs-mullet:

Stunning Steve vs Mr. Perfect would have been incredible. Austin & Perfect wrestled each other in 2002, but that’s just not the same. I’m talking like 92-93. The match itself would have been a show stealer, on any card, and the promos would have been fucking phenomenal. Especially if Perfect is with Heenan, and Austin is with Paul E.

This is such a dream scenario. People have no idea.

"What is your favorite Pay Per view match of all time" by joeypeachjoey

The default answer is and has always been Shawn Michaels Vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 25. However, the first time I remember being genuinely excited for a match, worried during the match, and ecstatic afterward was The Rock Vs. Triple H at SummerSlam 1998. One of the greatest ladder matches of all-time, and the culmination of one hell of a crazy feud.

Holy shit, remember Eric Angle?

I didn’t remember him being a fan of the Rock, though…

Of course, I have one of these…

I think she looks like that chick from Frozen. The Disney movie, not the thriller.
Which, is not an insult. She’s beautiful.
