I don’t think the IWC overrates Shawn Michaels, I think they just show respect to not only one of the most influential wrestlers of all time, but arguably one of the best in-ring performers we will ever see in our lifetimes. If you just started watching wrestling in the last few years then you might not see what the big fuss is all about, but to us fans that have grown up watching wrestling since the late 80’s, Shawn Michaels has grown and evolved right along with us. His career has spanned the course of some of the most memorable eras in the WWE and he is such an important part of professional wrestling history, that without him, wrestling as we know it wouldn’t be as mainstream as it is today.

Cena Sucks: The History Of John Cena And Chicago by Tony Kegger
Edited by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
On July 17, 2011, John Cena will defend his WWE Championship against CM Punk at the WWE Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View event. The PPV will take place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago which is CM Punk’s home city. As you can imagine, CM Punk is expected to receive many cheers from the crowd despite being a heel. John Cena is expected to receive a lot of boos from the Chicago crowd, but not just because he is CM Punk’s opponent. Chicago has been booing Cena for the last several years and the boos could reach an all-time high on July 17th with the hometown hero CM Punk as Cena’s opponent. Cena has made several appearances in Chicago during his WWE career and this article will focus on some of those appearances. If you saw the last Monday Night RAW before WrestleMania 27 that took place in Chicago on March 28 of this year, then you know that the fans in Chicago are hostile towards John Cena. However, as you will see in this article, there have been many other times when several members of the Chicago crowd made it clear that they do not like John Cena.
I need to mention something before I start going through the history of John Cena in Chicago. This article will include several videos that will help illustrate my point about how the Chicago crowd feels about John Cena. I will try describing how much Cena is disliked in Chicago, but watching the videos should help you understand better that Chicago doesn’t like Cena. The videos should appear in the article. If for some reason any of the videos aren’t appearing or will not play, I will have the link somewhere in the paragraph. If I am referring to an event and you see that some of the text is linked then there’s a good chance the link will direct you to the video. Okay, I hope that all makes sense and please enjoy the article. Read more…

THE INFAMOUS™ WWE Monday Night RAW Review 6/27/11 – RAW Roulette
by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
Watching Monday Night RAW can be like playing a game of Russian Roulette. RAW is the revolver. Your remote control is the trigger. The gun only has one bullet in it. The bullet is located in a chamber nestled in the cylinder. When you make the decision to tune in, you spin the cylinder and cock back the hammer as the cylinder aligns with the hammer and the barrel. When you flip to the USA Network you essentially pull the trigger on the gun. Sometimes RAW will do nothing to you and you live to see another day. Other times RAW will blow your fucking brain out of your head with something so awesome you can’t help but feel like you died and went to heaven because nothing in the world of professional wrestling will ever be good as that moment in time. RAW doesn’t provide these mind-blowing moments often, so we can just assume it’s a ten shot revolver (the average revolver holds 5-6 shots), but this episode of RAW left me with a self-inflicted bullet wound to the right side of my temple; proverbially speaking of course. Most of you might know exactly what I’m talking about and for those that don’t, I will break it down, break it down down.
The same analogy works with these reviews. Most sites have one bullet in a ten shot revolver. I fucks around and stick a bullet in every other chamber. This is bound to get messy.
*Inserts bullets into chamber, spins cylinder, cocks it back and hands you the revolver*
Pull the trigger. I fucking dare you.
What If…Part 3 by Tony Kegger
Featuring THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
[Editors Note: This is part 3 of Tony Kegger’s “What If…” series, where he wonders what would have happened in WWE history if certain things happened or didn’t happen. After last weeks edition where I left a comment so long some thought it resembled a column within a column, Tony reached out to me and gave me the greenlight to add any thoughts I might have in the actual column instead of wasting them away in the comment section. So no, my ego isn’t so out of control that I feel like infiltrating other people’s work, I just thought that this might be a good idea and I am happy to help my fellow INFAMOUS CREW™ member. We are both passionate wrestling fans. Sometimes we will agree, other times we won’t, but all we want to do is provide you with the best possible read you can find this side of the IWC. Before we get into it I would like to say that I think this column would have been perfectly fine without my input. Tony’s a good writer and I’m glad to have him on-board. Anyways, my thoughts will be bolded in brackets and his will be in plain text. Enjoy.]
