Today I had the absolute honor of speaking the renown artist Rob Schamberger. Now if you’ve never heard of Rob, maybe you’ve heard of some of his clients: Bill Goldberg, Gerry Brisco, Chris Jericho, Jim Ross and so on and so on. Rob Schamberger is widely considered to be one of the best artists to ever portray the art of pro-wrestling on canvas. His style is unique but his love for wrestling is no different than from you and I.
Kassius Ohno was interviewed to kick off NXT. Ohno said tonight was the rubber match against Trent Barreta, but it’s only a rubber match because Trent Barreta needed help from Richie Steamboat to beat him. Kassius said Trent was going to experience more pain than Steamboat did and will be staring at retirement.

NXT opened the week the WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes and The One Man Band Heath Slater. Slater wanted to face Seth Rollins for the NXT Title this very night. Newly appointed whatever her title is of Raw Vickie Guerrero entered into the room, telling Dusty that The One Man Band does deserve a title shot against Rollins tonight. Dusty decides that Heath Slater will get a chance at Seth Rollins and if he does in fact beat him he can have his title shot.
It’s a non-PPV week this weekend so I thought you’d enjoy a popular feature on the site, “Wrestling Is An Artform” where we feature prominent artwork starring the world of pro-wrestling.
– Getting set up for the preshow. Smart move putting the dark match streaming online
– The people who paid for the show=Recap show. Online for free=Tag title match. Makes sense
– First pyro mishap. Guess the Usos aren’t important enough
– Less than 10 minute tag match when they have a half hour to fill. Makes sense.
