9/20/2017

In reality, the referee is, […]

This past Tuesday on Smackdown Live, Kevin Owens delivered a brutal headbutt to Vince McMahon. WWE is currently getting sued by several ex-wrestlers due to concussion-related issues. Shortly before the headbutt, McMahon mentioned that no one can beat him in a lawsuit. An awful dangerous way to stick it to the people you’re battling in court. Adam Cole, […]

TAWF CLEAN 6: In-SANE Elbow

9/17/2017

Another week, another episode about the awesomeness that is Braun Strowman. It’s hard not to talk about the guy.

Is it time for […]

Max Minicast: Brian Cage Is A Murderer

8/29/2017
More
Professional wrestling is serious business, especially to those with an old-school mentality. Folks with this mentality think that pretty much anything that’s not a 45-minute headlock is killing the business. however, Damon thinks that pro wrestling should embrace its sillier side more often. From hilarious Chikara Pro characters like Missle Assault man to Brian Cage […]

TAWF Clean: Shinsuke Botchamura?

8/12/2017
More
Okay, so we don’t actually think Shinsuke Nakamura botched the Reverse Exploder on John Cena. It’s professional grappling, not interpretive dance! In all seriousness, accidents do happen in the ring and we’re very happy John Cena wasn’t injured. Vince McMahon, allegedly, was not very happy about his golden boy getting dropped on his noggin and was […]
