"Wrestling, isn’t that for children?” is a question I face on practically any occasion in which my hobby of watching (and shockingly, enjoying) wrestling is brought up. It’s jarring, particularly because after the umpteenth time, it gets a little tiring seemingly having to justify something you are fond of whilst people watch on, judging you at every possible second. When they then find out your favourite wrestling promotion is one based in Japan, you start to feel the glares strengthen. To them, I’m now a complete outcast, a weird hipster of sorts who probably didn’t get enough love in their childhood.
Let’s get ready to rumble! Welcome to WatchMojo and today we’re pitting the original six Rocky movies against the contemporary chronicles of Adonis Creed.
I actually wanted to watch Bleed for This in theaters a while back when I first saw its trailer. Time passed by and I guess it was a limited run so I didn't get the chance to see it. Recently it popped up on Netflix and at first I didn't know what it was and then I remembered the trailer for it. So I finally got the chance to see it.
It’s time to bring out the hardware. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today, we’re counting down the top 10 WWE wrestling ladder matches.
I had been waiting for this particular show to appear online for a long time. I'm a fan of Frank Grillo both as an actor and as a person. You may recognize him from movies such as Captain America Civil War, The Grey, and The Purge Series, and a role in Wolf Warrior 2, the highest grossing non Hollywood movie ever. Or you might know him from his appearances on podcasts like The Fighter and the Kid and others. He's got tons of action movie chops, and does way more than look the part.
Watching wrestling with my dad is probably one of my earliest memories with him, and one of the happiest. He was always so active when he watched wrestling. If there was a particularly brutal move, he'd be out of his seat, moving his arms this way and that as though he was trying to help whatever wrestler that was currently in the bout win. I was fascinated by what he was doing, and I remember being fascinated by the electricity being generated on screen.
I am roused from my meditations with a burning question: what keeps the martial arts alive? Surely, the majority of society sees the logic of superior combat technology. They are also drawn to the more streamlined, immediately-effective defensive systems, such as military combative systems. We know so much about how to take apart the machine of the human body, why do we maintain these ancient ways?
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.
Understandably, people have jumped off the Adrien Broner bandwagon. The antics and trouble with the law have been headlining news articles more than his accomplishments in boxing. As a follower of the sport, I’m well aware of this. So you may be asking how someone sees the American fighter coming out of this fight victorious. Well here’s how I see it. For one Pacquiao lately has been a part-time boxer. He’s more politician than fighter. At the end of the day, he’s still human. Balancing two important jobs like this has to take its toll. Sure he’s been winning, but you can only go to the well so many times till it starts to run dry.
They’re the men you don’t wanna meet in the ring or on the street. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 fighters of all time.
With all the UFC hype that has been happening over the past few years it seems everyone wants to be a MMA fighter. It is the same now like it was back in the 70's when Bruce Lee came onto the scene.
