Are darts and pro-wrestling basically the same thing?

March 17, 2012 by


There’s a piece currently up on the Vice blog by friend of the website (and by that I mean some guy I’ve never met who follows me on Twitter that I can’t remember if I follow back) Clive Martin, dealing with a topic that Playing Ricky Morton has focused on a few times in the […]

  CM Punk finally responds to Paul Nicholson over Twitter. It’s been a long, long time coming.

The only time Kreayshawn will ever be mentioned on this blog

February 22, 2012 by


You all remember Kreayshawn, right? Posh white girl from 2011, looked a bit like Joe Cornish in drag, completely failed to happen in any way shape or form. Anyway, being as she already leaked nude photographs of herself in the internet in a desperate attempt to stay relevant, and with there being very little sign […]

December 31, 2011 by


Well, that’s the post-Christmas malaise over and done with then. PlayingRickyMorton strategically took a one-week holiday from the site to refrain from posting any of that “boy, we sure are stuffed with turkey, here’s some random bullshit we’d never consider for the site any of the other 51 weeks of the year” schtick that affects […]

Stone Cold Steve Austin hates Occupy Wall Street, endorses use of water cannons and systematic torture

November 28, 2011 by


There’s probably nowhere worse to talk about politics than a professional wrestling blog. Oh, it’s infringed upon our sport “before”: Jesse Ventura, Antonio Inoki and The Great Sasuke (complete with mask) all made it to a position of elected authority in the past. Ludvig Borga stood as a candidate for a far-right party in Finland, […]
