Matt Harrak, Justin Czerwonka, Cameron Dougharty & special guest former WWE writer Andrew Goldstein debate some of the most devastating and most overlooked finishers in wrestling history.
Make sure to leave your own “Top 5” down below!
1. Now how was that first segment any better than the Chris Jericho/The Miz/Wade Barrett segment from last week? “Pancake Patterson”? But you know what the truly sad part is? Vince McMahon and/or the writers were probably pissing themselves laughing hysterically at that entire bit. I’m so glad we always get “great” TV during WrestleMania season.
Since one of TNA’s “big 4” PPVs in live tonight (Lockdown), I figured it was about time I was able to examine TNA Wrestling a little more closely in 2013.
Now it’s no secret I’m a TNA fan… or I should say was. It’s not just what they’ve done to the product over the last few years or the people they’ve brought in or pushed, it’s more of the fact that I just don’t have time for TNA. Since WWE has moved Monday Night Raw to 3 hours every week, I cover a “10 Thoughts” column on that show, follow that up with writing news articles from the fallout of a 3 hour show as well as the next day’s taping of a 2 hour SmackDown and trying to keep up with what is going on in the constantly improving NXT developmental territory. Plus the addition of a podcast Thursdays (The Creatively Endeavored Wrestling Pulsecast that you can find on BlogTalkRadio.com or on iTunes) and monthly interviews with the likes of Jake “The Snake” Roberts, “Diamond” Dallas Page, Rob Schamberger, Adam Cole and more. God forbid it be a PPV week as well! And that’s just my “wrestling business” life! While I work on these passion projects, I also have a day job to pay the bills, a Victorian house from the 1800s that we’re still trying to get settled into & renovate, a 2-year-old that epitomizes the “terrible twos” while being wickedly awesome at the same time and a wife who tries to support me in everything I’m trying to do while also carrying a baby! The Harrak household is just one project, chore, event, job or playtime after another with hardly time to sleep or eat. When we first moved into our home, we decided to “name” it “Serenity” as it was our one safe haven (and that Firefly was a badass TV show). But now I’m thinking we might need to rename it to “The Thunderdome”. Unfortunately the piece that’s been left by the wayside in all of this has been TNA.
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.
