Ring the Damn Bell

Brian Damage

Women’s wrestling has certainly grown and prospered in recent years. All the talk of the Women’s Revolution is very real, as we are now seeing more and more women in high profile matches and even main eventing big shows. Before we can talk about the current crop of female talents, we must first look back into history to find the true trailblazers of women’s wrestling. This is wrestling history….this is wrestling HERstory.

In an industry that so often lacks it, All Elite Wrestling has displayed compassion of a commendable scale. Brandon Bethune details how the company has handled grief so successfully, while exploring the potential positive ramifications of their gestures.

I’ve tried to articulate a million different things in a million ways to describe why I love All Elite Wrestling.

I could say it reignited a core love of wrestling that has been in steady decline since 2001. I could say it has provided creative fulfilment for not only wrestlers, but for those that cover the biz, being able to talk about something that actually caters to them instead of punishing them. Or I could say it’s given us the absolute babe that is Hook.

I could say all of…

Ringside Logic Appeared on NXT

Posted: October 2, 2021 in Uncategorized

Ringside Logic

Ringside Logic got some publicity on WWE television, courtesy of NXT.

A video package aired highlighting their newest star, Bron Breakker. Graphics of various websites with articles about Breakker were shown.

One of them was this very site! (Click here for the article)

I would have missed it if not for the colorful logo sticking out in my periphery. The demands of a Chihuahua Dad require many belly rubs.

Rewind, double-take, and complete shock emerged as messages came flooding in. I couldn’t believe it. WWE usually only mentions the major websites on television. 

My little corner of the internet getting a shout-out is a testament to all the readers of this site. I can’t thank you all enough for taking the time to read something I wrote.

Thank you! Your support means the world to me.

WWE's Lacey Evans Says Historic Saudi Arabia Embrace Was Not Preplanned: 'I  Am Not a Hugger' (Video)

Make no mistake about it, pro wrestling does have a dark side to it. There are hundreds upon hundreds of stories about the dark and sometimes sinister side as chronicled in my ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. This piece is a direct opposite of that. With every bad story I have shared…there are also positive stories. Stories of wrestlers making it above and beyond the ring. Positive stories to inspire. Pro wrestlers aren’t all drug addicts, scam artists and carny sideshows. They all don’t die at an early age, or are broke and need to wrestle till they die. They don’t necessarily have to get into acting like The Rock or Batista. They don’t have to necessarily switch over to MMA like Brock Lesnar or CM Punk. Some of these stories are just about hard work, dreaming big and doing whatever it takes to succeed. We’ve already covered some…

The Fandom Post is reporting that RetroCrush has added the GoShogun anime film to Amazon Prime. The film is available in its English dubbed version.

The story of GoShogun is described as:

A meteor strikes the Earth and is found to emanate a powerful new energy called Beamler, which is used to power a battle robot, GoShogun, and a teleporting fortress, Good Thunder. The Docougar Crime Syndicate, lead by crime lord Neo Neros, try to steal the secret of the energy from the inventor of GoShogun, but he kills himself rather than let them acquire it. His son is targeted by Neo Neros next, but he is taken in by the crew aboard Good Thunder, who travel the world fighting NeoNeros’s forces with GoShogun.

The fictional term of “The Forbidden Door” is used when a wrestling promotion that normally doesn’t do business with other companies, allows their contracted wrestlers to work with another promotion’s contracted talent. While WWE might be arguably the most forbidden of doors in all of wrestling…it has opened its door on occasion to work with other companies. In the past, they have had working agreements with ECW, USWA, New Japan Pro Wrestling and AAA based in Mexico. It has been accomplished, but more times than not…the WWF/WWE lives in its own bubble. On April 13th, 1990, the World Wrestling Federation cracked open their forbidden door to hold a super show with both New Japan and All Japan Pro Wrestling.
