Macho Man: The Randy Savage Story will include a documentary feature on disc one and 15 matches on discs two and three. The Blu-Ray set will feature an additional 4 matches and a series of extra stories.
Basically, it’ll be what this DVD should have been.
KEVIN STEEN: I don’t care. I’m happy to do this.
ZAYN: Well aren’t you perfect?
I can’t wait for WWE fans to get a load of these guys.
Adam Ratliff is Bronx-based illustrator with a passion for pro wrestling and the nerdier side of pop culture. Ratliff blends these two together seamlessly while exaggerating proportions to create a dream-like fantasy world of larger than life puro stars and lucha kitty cats. His work strikes a chord in anyone who has ever found themselves completely wrapped up in a wrestling match, and illustrates perfectly the personal connection we have all felt at one time or another towards pro wrestling.
Really, really cool art.
Much like how Scott Hall gets a title shot at some point in the future, one day soon I’ll be on the What a Maneuver podcast talking about Souled Out 98. I decided to tweet about it while I watched it. Results after the jump.
King of Trios, the most important event on the Chikara calendar and perhaps the biggest event in independent wrestling in a given year, begins Friday. While the event has my fires and the fires of the Chikaraverse stoked, I would be naive to assume that every wrestling fan knows what the weekend is about. On the surface, it’s just a six-man tag team tournament, but as with anything in wrestling, especially Chikara, the roots grow more deeply than what they’d appear from the surface. In addition, the Chikara mythos can feel daunting to newbies or outsiders.

TNA Impact Wrestling’s Robbie E Strauss ranks his participation in the upcoming season of “The Amazing Race” on CBS at the top of the list of hardest things he’s done in his life. That’s saying something considering he puts his body on the line regularly for a living.
Let’s not stress “regularly” in regards to people wrestling in TNA.
The next addition to the WWE Network should be the Hulk Hogan’s Rock N’ Wrestling cartoon series which aired 26 episodes from 1985-1987 which aired on Saturday mornings on CBS.
Never watch cartoons you remember from your childhood.
This week Philip Kollar, deputy reviews editor for Polygon, joins us to talk about the 1997 edition of WCW World War 3! We also discuss the first two episodes of the Monday Night Wars doc on the WWE Network, the origin of Rick Steiner’s head gear, 4 counts, WCW Logic, and the future of wrestling videogames.
This sounds like it’s going to be a great episode.
Star Of Savage:
Why you should skip it: When RAW is bad, discussion about RAW tends to be not great as well. Such is the case here, a dead horse I feel we’ve been beating since right after SummerSlam. The reader question section freshens up the show a bit, but Rosenberg’s heel shtick dampens the fun. As for the Wyatt interview, it would be nice if Rosenberg could decide whether he wanted to interview Bray Wyatt or Windham Rotunda. Trying to do both doesn’t work, at least not in his hands.
The first question a wrestling podcast should ask itself is: are we in or out of the fictional universe? Being both is asinine.
It was my dream job. And now I’ll never get it.
