Wrestling!
Matty here, dabbling in many career fields, most of which involve my overwhelming love of all things professional wrestling! If you like what you read/see, please check out my official column and new podcast with fellow wrestling enthusiasts!

I like the feeling of recognizing/appreciating past champions, but a strange new trend that should change is the champions coming out first. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the champions to be waiting for their challengers.

Or, perhaps the “next generation” rumor is in relation to the addition of an NXT hour to the 3-hour RAW broadcast every week? Certainly would increase the popularity of NXT, give them a mainstream platform and would alleviate the weekly fatigue of watching a 3-hour show every week.

Looking forward to the debut of a possible NXT stable, the “Next Generation”, featuring Hideo, Zayn, Neville, Steen, and Devitt on RAW. With all the comparisons I’ve drawn to this current time of professional wrestling to the time after Hogan’s departure in 1993-1996, how surreal/appropriate is it that WWE is hyping a “next generation”?

I’m all for different segments and angles closing the show to put importance on the programs of other wrestlers. But I can’t imagine why this one is closing the go-home show of Night of Champions. Shouldn’t that be reserved for, say, the main event?

The Journey: The Road to Success of Ambrose/Reigns/Rollins Part 1

If you’re interested in the members of The Shield, fantasy booking/writing, and things like that, feel free to look at this story-arch that I began that focuses on the rise of Ambrose, Reigns, and Rollins that starts from September 2014 and ends at WM 33.

Look at it as my take on how I would book/write the current storyline involving Rollins and Reigns. Pretty interesting stuff. I’ll be updating it weekly, so make sure you stay updated.

Podcast will be submitted tomorrow afternoon as usual. Stay tuned!

In regards to Kurt Angle’s “contractual decision”, it’s TNA or retirement. As much as he wants to go back to WWE and work the type of deal that Brock Lesnar and RVD work, it won’t happen. They have been less than enthusiastic with re-signing him, not forgetting Angle’s drug situation and the way he left WWE. I will be very surprised if he the signs with WWE in any capacity.
