Daniel Bryan Betting Odds Skyrocket to Win Royal Rumble

Daniel Bryan hasn’t been an active wrestler in the WWE since early 2015. He has been on the shelf since WWE’s doctor (Dr. Joseph Maroon) has medically disqualified him due to concussions. He has fought back with dozens of other doctors clearing him to wrestle, but WWE fears an NFL-level concussion lawsuit, is being cautious when dealing with concussions.

Bryan has been a character on WWE television the last 18 months or so, but he’s just a power figure as the Smackdown Live! General Manager. He is just marking time until his contract ends this September, since he has no guarantee he will wrestle for them again.

Shane McMahon Saved Wrestlemania 32

shane mcmahon return 2016 WWE RAW WrestlemaniaWrestlemania 32 is scheduled to take place on April 3rd and it needs to fill AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

Up until now, the outlook on the event was meager at best. Many stars are out with injuries and won’t be back in time for Mania.

Also, the ratings have been in the tank. I guess with the WWE Network, it’s not as important as in the past, but it’s still pretty darn important.

Don’t get me started on WWE’s stock price…it has not exactly been bullish.

Nevermind, forget everything I just wrote.

Wrestlemania 32 may have just been saved by a 46-year-old man.

Every Elite series released this year has been great. The last dud was Elite series 32, but they made up for it with all the recent releases. Elite 36 and 37 were two of the best series they’ve released period.

WWE Should Stop Making ‘Royal Rumble’ So Predictable

Roman Reigns sucks wwe royal rumble 2015The 2015 ‘Royal Rumble’ pay-per-view happened last night in Philadelphia. Wrestling fans always look forward to this event every year. It’s arguably the second-best wrestling night of the year, just behind ‘Wrestlemania’. Unfortunately, wrestling fans were left disappointed.

The Rumble is the unofficial start to the ‘Road to Wrestlemania’. Not only are fans excited to see which surprise entrants will enter the Rumble, but the other matches help set the table for feuds through Mania. The WWE did a pretty poor job in every facet.

The WWE has been playing it safe since the WWE Network launched. Their storytelling ability has been stuck in the 80’s since they reverted back to a PG rating. What can they do to fix last night’s blunder?

‘The Authority’ Storyline Was A Failure for WWE

Triple H Stephanie McMahon WWE The AuthorityI’ve been a fan of pro wrestling as long as I can remember. I love the WWE, but I always root for startup wrestling promotions to do well. No one will ever match WWE’s marketshare, but competition breeds creativity. WWE definitely needs to be pushed.

The WWE has pushed a storyline around Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. The duo call themselves ‘The Authority’ and have been running the company with an iron fist. The storyline officially came into fruition on August 18th, 2013, the night of Summerslam. Triple H caused Daniel Bryan to lose the WWE title to Randy Orton.

The storyline lasted 14 months and will historically be seen as a failure…but it wasn’t completely their fault.

I now buy a few figures a month.

WWE Elite Series 30 and Elite Series 31 were both home runs. I bought most of those sets. I was kind of hoping Elite 32 would be filled with figures I’d want to skip (I need to catch up on some earlier Elites I missed). My wish was granted and I don’t feel bad skipping most of these figures.

The WWE Superstars included in Elite 32 are Daniel Bryan (short-lived run with the Wyatt Family), Big E., Mark Henry, Cody Rhodes, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio (WCW Flashback).

Here are some pictures and a review of which accessories each figure will come with.

Best 15 Pay-Per-Views Available on WWE Network Right Now

Macho Man Ricky Steamboat Wrestlemania 3 WWE Network WWFThe WWE Network has finally launched. The launch wasn’t exactly smooth. Xbox 360 doesn’t quite work yet, but all other platforms seem to be functioning now. It took a few hours for me to get through to buy it. MLB Advanced Media is in charge of the streaming and everything on the back end. They released a statement and said they never planned for the amount of first day subscribers. This caused the issues they are still sorting out.

Well, for those who put down $9.99, you have nearly the entire WWE, WCW & ECW pay-per-view library at your fingertips. It’s a bit overwhelming at first, so we try to make it easier on you and pick out the best 15 PPVs currently available to stream on the WWE Network.

We had to narrow down the list from 30-40 to give you the best of the best. This list is in no particular order, but Macho Man vs. Ricky Steamboat on Wrestlemania III is a must-see.
