It is undeniable at this point that professional wrestling is encountering major growth across all spectrums. This article will help explain some of it and point you in the right direction for how to keep up with all the great content that is being produced.
Happy New Year everyone! The ME is gearing up for its biggest year yet. Stay tuned for new content on the important events going on in today’s politics and economics.
We will be starting off our new year of postings with what could possibly be our biggest and best yet; “Memorandum for Proposed Action to Revitalize the US Economy”, which will lay out reasonable and practical policies that the government can follow to give our economy that extra boost it needs. Coming soon!
BuzzFeed, posted probably the best article condemning the very idea of a console war and the impending one coming this holiday season. It boils down to what I feel so strongly about: There are no true winners in a console war.
Yes, consoles do die while in battle. But they aren’t long fought wars. It’s either a quick defeat or a long, difficult tussle that later no one really gives a shit about.
I remember 2006, my “first” E3. The first E3 where I paid attention to everything video games. It was that E3 where the rest of that generation of consoles were unveiled. While the Xbox 360 already had a head start, it was the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 that had their debutant ball. And I remember the Carrie-like hell unleashed right after.
Sony’s arrogance lit up the internet with memes and Nintendo placed itself warmly…

Anyone who reads the “dirt sheets” knows that WWE has been and will be making changes to its developmental system. For starters, they are creating a “finishing school” in Connecticut nearby their headquarters.
There will also be changes regarding NXT. “WWE will begin filming NXT episodes at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, reports PWInsider.com, and the talent roster will be made up of Developmental wrestlers. Tapings are scheduled to be bi-weekly at the Full Sail Live Venue” (PWTorch). It seems this new strategy is based somewhat off of the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings in Orlando. There are benefits for doing this; wrestlers performing in front of basically the same crowd of people week after week are forced to learn new “tricks” and up their game. The college crowd should also give reasonably good reactions (pops, heat, etc) to the wrestlers. Using the apparently “state of the art” facilities that Full Sail University has can help train new production crew members. A question I have, though, is whether or not this will be replacing FCW tapings. It appears NXT will use FCW roster members, so is it instead of or in addition to?
WrestleMania 28 has come and gone. The dust has settled, and the results are in.
The winner of possibly the biggest main event in ‘Mania history, The Rock vs John Cena is…
THE ROCK! (If you Smell!!!! cue the music)
I’m kinda, sorta happy with the result. Yes, I wore a Rock shirt whilst I was watching The Show of Shows at a Buffalo Wild Wings. Yes, I chanted “Cena Sucks” during the back and forth chants. Yet, all I truly wanted was a good showing. Part of me actually wanted Cena to win.
Most people who tried to figure out the outcome from an unbiased perspective, saw Cena coming out on top.
I was one of those people!
Would it not make sense to have the man that, for better or for worse, is the face of the company to come out on top despite all the “haters” and “rise above”? Why have The Rock, although one of the greatest, win if he isn’t a full time superstar?
What does it say when the guy who hasn’t wrestled one on one in about 7 years pins your company’s main guy to the mat and picks up a clean victory?

This episode we discuss:
Road to Wrestlemania
Behind the Curtain
I did not realize how controversial and debated my last article, “The Reality Behind Girls and ‘Nice Guys’“, would be.
As such, I feel it is appropriate to write this post to try to explain what I meant as I was writing the last article.
Episode 3 of SMACKTalk is now up on YouTube!
This quick episode includes a RAW Recap and discussion on Road to WrestleMania!
The following post concerns a topic that has been highly contested among girls and boys, men and women for quite some time. I will be discussing what I feel to be the truth about the relationship (or lack there-of) between girls and the ‘nice guys’ that never quite seem to get the upper hand.
For starters, let’s just go over what the issue is. The basic sentiment is that girls never pick the nice guys, but instead go for the assholes (if you’d excuse my language). Then the girls go on to complain about how they can’t find a good guy to take care of them. Guys, upon hearing this, become upset because they know they’re good guys but usually end up ‘friend-zoned’ with no way of escape. Because of this, girls are stupid for creating assholes out of the good guys who are just looking for a way to compete and get the girl of their dreams. I believe that about sums it up.
