TNA Fantasy by Ricky Jamison

Remember how we all used to play Smackdown vs. Raw and the best part about it (for any wrestling game actually) was GM Mode. Oh come on, don’t tell me I was the only person out there booking The Rock vs. Shawn Michaels for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania; or was spending forever trying to get a five-star match out of a created character? Anyways, I mention this because I notice how everyone on the internet always says what they would do for WWE and how they would build this guy up or rebuild this division, but I never see anything creative for TNA Impact except “this show sucks” or “I can’t wait for it to fail already.” So, I decided to do what many others won’t; I’m going to write a fantasy column that in truth will probably be better than the actual product. So welcome to TNA Fantasy: Where Wrestling Really Counts and We Really Let the Pigeons Loose. Read more…
How I Would Book It: Money In The Bank by Tony Kegger
Edited by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
The WWE Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View takes place this Sunday from my hometown of Chicago. Here’s how I would book Money In The Bank. I have also included my own personal predictions and l will also predict how the Chicago crowd will react to some of the WWE Superstars. Enjoy. Read more…
Something has been bothering me lately. Why does Mark Henry have very few accomplishments in the WWE? It seems like everyone in the Internet Wrestling Community is complaining about Christian losing the World Heavyweight Championship to Randy Orton on a recent episode of Friday Night Smackdown. At least Christian won the title. Mark Henry has never been World Champion in the WWE. Mark Henry has been with the WWE since 1996. Christian has spent less years with the company and made his WWE debut in 1998. Mark Henry has been with the WWE his entire wrestling career while Christian spent three years from November 2005 to November 2008 with TNA Wrestling. Despite all of that, Christian’s title victory at Extreme Rules was praised as being well deserved, but no one seems to be demanding that Mark Henry gets a title reign. I’m not much of a Mark Henry fan but he has spent so much time with the WWE and it seems that he is not being appreciated enough. How can the WWE call Mark Henry “The World’s Strongest Man” and never make him the World Heavyweight Champion? Mark Henry deserves a push so it is time for me to discuss how I would book Mark Henry’s opportunity at becoming the next World Heavyweight Champion. Read more…
Where have all of the old school Superstars gone in the WWE? The last survivors of the Attitude Era are becoming extinct. Triple H rarely appears on TV anymore. The Undertaker is always away with injuries that magically heal right in time for Wrestlemania or Summerslam. Shawn Michaels is retired after a long career. Edge is retired due to his neck injuries. Goldust is out with an injury and may never come back. I watched a lot of WWE as a kid from 1999 to 2001 and there are not many Superstars left from my childhood. Only a handful remains: Mark Henry, Christian, William Regal, Big Show, and Kane. Does R-Truth count? I never saw “R-Truth” as a kid, but I do remember “K-Kwik”. Sure The Rock has come back, but unfortunately, The Great One is appearing on RAW only once a month. The good news is that one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all-time could return soon. He is a Superstar who I like more now than I ever did 12 years ago when he first debuted in the WWE. The man I am referring to is the best in the world at what he does…Chris Jericho.
Chris Jericho has been gone from the WWE since September 2010, but Jericho recently admitted he will return to the WWE at some point:
“When I come back to WWE, when [Dancing with the Stars] is done, we can continue right where we picked off. You can boo and cheer and yell.”
[Editors Note: This is the third installment of “How I Would Book It” written by Tony Kegger. Tony, like myself and Kieran, also entered the TJR Writers Search and didn’t make the final cut, but fret not, because even in defeat, we persevere and get bigger. We will not be denied. Our voices will be heard the world over. Tony Kegger has already booked the WWE Extreme Rules PPV and the WWE Draft and if I can say so myself, he does so very eloquently. For the previous editions of “How I Would Book It” you can click here. I’m starting to feel like Michael Buffer doing these damn introductions so it’s time for me to GTFO and shine that spotlight on Tony Kegger. Enjoy.]
Welcome to another addition of How I Would Book It. This time I am focusing on a very controversial topic…..John Cena. Cena is considered THE top superstar in the WWE. He blows the roof off of nearly every building he performs in, but he is not loved by all. His character could use a little bit of a change and the best way to change a good guy’s character is to turn him into a heel. Here is how I would book John Cena’s heel turn.
