Opinionated: Brock Lesnar leaving WWE is a good thing

by Chris Cummings

Now, this isn’t just going to be an article in which an anti-Brock guy rips on Brock Lesnar. I mean, sure… I’m not really a fan of Brock Lesnar in 2020. Back in the mid-2000s when Lesnar was working with the likes of Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle, putting on Iron Man matches on Smackdown […]

We all know what a strange time this is right now, and for anybody who has watched any professional wrestling shows since the pandemic began, you’ll know just how strange that is too. No fans.

Wrestling fans will be well aware of how strange this whole period of time has been, as far as the television product.

Opinionated: Why WWE should bring Halloween Havoc back!

by Chris Cummings

Okay, okay… I know this is kind of typical for this time of year, but hear me out.
