From MMA, wrestling, boxing, and more, fighting satisfies your hunger for a good KO.
What's On the Horizon for Elektra Lopez?
I've been wanting to write a story about Elektra Lopez for a while now. Her young WWE career has fascinated me for a while, especially the big shocker from last year, when she went from a few appearances as an enhancement talent, to becoming a fierce villainess aligned with the Legado del Fantasma faction.
WWE: What Is Roman Reigns' Next Move?
The current Undisputed WWE champion, Roman Reigns, is riding high as the top-ranking superstar in the company. He unified the titles at Wrestlemania 38, cementing himself as the most dominant contender, and he's beaten every challenger since. Usually, wins are thanks to the intervention by the Bloodline, and sometimes, Roman uses heel tactics to gain the upper hand. The low blow has been an essential weapon in his arsenal, which Roman uses when backed against a wall. Reigns also utilizes the surprise guillotine choke. But dirty schemes will only take him so far.
Mick Foley is Now a WWE Smackdown on the Comedy Circuit
Photo by Mike Kalasnik Long before WWE Smackdown became a thing, Mick Foley got his first full-time wrestling job in 1988. Comfortable in the tights as “Cactus Jack,” he soared the heights as WWE’s “Mankind.” Earning three belts, Foley joined wrestling lore in his epic battle against “the Undertaker.” Literally taking flight off a caged structure, he rose to finish despite being knocked unconscious and completing the match with a tooth wedged in his nose. Nonetheless, when finally succumbing to age, retirement gave him the chance to write a bestselling memoir, which resulted in a profession that could quite possibly rival that 16-foot dive off the “Cell from Hell” in 1998.
WWE; AEW: Is a Merger of Promotions Possible?
The words merger and cross-promotion tend to go overlooked in the pro wrestling community. Individual promotions like WWE hold a stance that they’re in direct competition with other companies, so the prospect of jointly coordinated events like in the days of WCW versus WWF are all but a dream. However, recent changes may point to something grand on the horizon.
The strong man breaks his wrist! Curry on Poole conflict
The public relations of the Warriors have always been very competent. For so many years, apart from the conflicts that broke out on the field, few people will know about the rest of the locker room, but this time the conflict between Green and Poole, the PR of the Warriors The team did not take too many measures. Some foreign media believe that the Warriors are a sign that they are going to "surge" the veteran. Likely to send some veterans away.
The Possible Implications of Sonya Deville's Return to NXT
The latest edition of NXT was the show's season premiere; first off, I want to say that I actually love the concept of a season premiere of a show that never has reruns. Secondly, I did enjoy Raw and SmackDown's season premieres as well, which saw a lot of shock returns, and shake-ups in the announce teams, with the clear indication that three-person booth will no longer be a thing. In the case of NXT, the interesting shake-up took place inside their Women's Division--more specifically, the top of it.
How to Handle Rejection
Any kind of rejection, no matter if it's in love, your career, friends, a book proposal or anything else, is not something that should affect how happy you are. Rejection doesn't feel great and sometimes it feels unfathomable but it shouldn't be something you permit to take away happiness from your life. The reality of life is that rejection will form a part of it––there will be occasions when your job application, your date request or your ideas for change will be rejected by someone, somewhere. It is a healthy attitude to accept that rejection is a part of life and to acknowledge that what really matters is finding the way to bounce back and try again.
The world of combat sports lost one of its divine figures last week with the passing of Antonio Inoki. While he had been in ill health for some time, his death still came as a shock, as many did not think he could possibly die.
Fighting for More than Glory: The Stories of Joe Louis and Jack Johnson
Joe Louis and Jack Johnson are two of the best boxers of all-time. World champions of a sport during a time when boxing was second only to baseball in terms of national popularity in the US. The path towards being a champion was not as easy one for either of them, and the realities of racism in the US made this path all the more difficult.
Mayweather's successor relinquishes title, officially kills bantamweight
Shakur Stevenson, who is seen as Mayweather's successor, has officially announced to the public that he will relinquish his WBO 126-pound featherweight world title and move up to the 130-pound bantamweight division. He will certainly win his second world title earlier than Mayweather, who won his second title WBC 135-pound lightweight gold belt by beating Castillo when he was 25 years and 2 months old, while Stevenson just turned 23 at the end of June.
Reviewing Saraya's AEW Debut
All Elite Wrestling had their highly promoted Grand Slam edition of Dynamite; seriously, I love these special Dynamite episodes. It's basically a pay-per-view for free, similar to WWE's special episodes of NXT. These episodes often have loaded cards, a big fight feel, and most of all, huge surprises. Grand Slam was no different, and the surprise came after the end of one of its premiere matches: the four-way match for the Interim AEW Women's World Championship.
Wladimir Klitschko Leaves Nothing to Chance by Preparing 100%
Photo by Web Summit Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko was born in the Ukraine to a military father and spent much of his childhood moving around. The life on the run included the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Kazakhstan, but things settled down when California became his home front in 1991. Still, the slow down didn’t obstruct his 59-3 career record, and the four heavyweight championship belts that he owns. On the way, the deadly blows he inflicts have him nicknamed the steel hammer. But being the toughest guy on Earth doesn’t prevent him from admitting to a frailty that the rest of us could certainly identify with.
