A post shared by Chris Jericho (@chrisjerichofozzy) on

WWE fans were wondering if wrestler Chris Jericho would return to the WWE someday. Jericho has been slowing down in WWE lately focusing on other things like performing at wrestling independent events, touring with Fozzy, working on his podcast and all that stuff that he does. Well, hate to break the news that it looks like that Jericho isn’t returning to WWE anytime soon ’cause he just signed a full time contract to All Elite Wrestling which is a brand new independent wrestling company put together by Shahid and Tony Khan.

To be honest, I’m glad Jericho has been staying away from WWE and he should stay away from them. Back when Jericho was on WWE TV, the WWE wasn’t using him right. WWE kept making him lose matches and kept making him look weak. In my opinion, Jericho did the right thing stepping away from WWE for a while ’cause I don’t like the way WWE is right now to be honest with you. Jericho is better off without WWE anyways.

On top of that, I love the stuff that Jericho is doing with independent wrestling like the stuff he’s doing with Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks. All that stuff he’s doing is pretty amazing shit. All these guys are doing stuff that WWE are afraid of.

I am noticing that independent wrestling have exploded in the wrestling scene. Seems to me that indie wrestling is doing better than WWE nowadays. Why is the indie wrestling scene so hot nowadays?  Why are fans turning to indie wrestling than professional wrestling like WWE? The answer is quite simple really…. one word: wrestling. That’s it. Indie wrestling companies give us wrestling when the WWE doesn’t. WWE is all about family entertainment so fans are now flocking to indie wrestling.

Kenny Omega is a pretty huge star in the indie wrestling world and the Young Bucks are getting up there too. I prefer Jericho stay indie ’cause he’s doing well.

I’m a huge Jericho fan, though. I’ve admired the guy for many many years ever since he made his WWE debut in 2000. I like all the stuff he’s doing. As for his band Fozzy goes, I’ve listened to them a little bit but haven’t bought any of their records… planning on it, though. I’m more of a fan of Jericho’s wrestling than his music.

Jericho’s one of the best in the wrestling business. He can play both the good guy and the bad guy quite well. He’s also really good in the ring too. I wish him luck in AEW.

Does Roman Reigns really have leukemia or not??? I think not… it might be a work…

On RAW last night, Roman Reigns was the first one to come out in the ring to deliver a promo. During his promo, Roman says he’s been living with leukemia cancer for 11 years and says he has kicked it ass once. Now he says it came back and he’s going to take a hiatus from the company to battle leukemia again. Of course, Roman relinquishes the title as you see in the video above.

There’s a little controversial debate over this, though. There’s a bit of an argument between wrestling fans on whether or not Roman Reigns really has cancer. The question is does Roman Reigns really have leukemia or is it a work (part of a story line).

I look through some wrestling message boards and forums. Most fans are being compassionate for Roman by giving him his well-wishes and all that stuff; however, there are some wrestling fans that will think this is all part of a storyline aka a “work”. Roman having leukemia could possibly be all scripted and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it turns out to be scripted ’cause why? It’s WWE. You really can’t tell whether or not things are true on WWE TV. You can’t believe everything you see on WWE TV, including this.

When some fans want to believe this is part of a storyline, they’ll get attacked by the other side who believes it’s real. The other side who believes it’s real will make arguments like: “Cancer is no laughing matter”, “WWE will not go this low since they deal with people with cancer” and blah blah blah. Yeah, WWE deals with bringing awareness to cancer a lot like with their “Make a Wish” foundation that they’re known for and their October breast cancer awareness month that they do. They believe Roman’s cancer diagnosis is real ’cause WWE does a lot of stuff for cancer victims. Yeah, it’s true that WWE does a lot of that stuff for cancer victims but that still doesn’t mean Roman’s cancer diagnosis is real.

What’s funny is that wrestling fans don’t believe the WWE will go way out of line with their storylines. Seriously? If they really believed that then they haven’t watched WWE in over a decade or so. This wasn’t the first time WWE went “out of line” with their storylines… check this article out:

https://screenrant.com/wwe-storylines-controversies/?fbclid=IwAR3vLlPy-9gC9Pu7rYef6q-ll2_j6CYoVkXC6ol7yAud2deJdXNDuxAwOSQ

Vince McMahon is one crazy guy and this guy will do anything for “ratings”, trust me.

You see, Roman Reigns has been one of the most hated wrestlers for a while. What gets me the most about this whole thing is how quickly the haters flipped from being a “hater” to a Roman Reigns “fan” after that speech. A lot of wrestling fans hated on Reigns so much through blogs and forums. I’ve seen fans bash the man like crazy over the last few years. I can see that they won’t admit that they hated the man… they keep making lies like, “I hate Roman Reigns the character, not the man himself”. They despised the man and they wanted him gone from the company. Fans hated Reigns ’cause they were tired of the WWE over pushing him so much, they also knocked his wrestling ability and gimmick. So now fans are all loving him now after that speech above? Oh please! The WWE tried all they could to get fans to stop hating on Reigns and now it looks like they finally found a way.

For the record, I don’t hate Reigns. Never did. I’ve always been a Roman Reigns fan and always found him a talented guy. He always put on exciting as hell matches. I just don’t believe his cancer diagnosis is real. If it turns out to be real then my bad, my heart goes out to him. I just believe it’s a work ’cause it’s leading up to something with the Shield, the wrestling faction with Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose turned heel last night at the show and a few between him and Seth Rollins started. Now Ambrose and Rollins will feud while Reigns will be off of WWE TV for a long while. Then I predict about a year later, Reigns will make his big return.

I know my opinion on this might offend some but I don’t care. We should have a right to believe whether or not this is a storyline and I’m pretty sure it is. Just wait. I just think WWE is up to something. I think they want Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to feud on TV for a long while without Roman Reigns getting in the way, I think that’s what the goal is? They need to explain a way for Reigns to take time off of TV and him having leukemia was the best they could come up with. There’s no doubt in my mind that this a work, a storyline and I’m sticking with it.

This is WWE. A mostly scripted show… you can’t believe everything they do.

Reasons why NXT wrestling is way better than RAW/Smackdown Live…

Man, I have become hooked to WWE NXT wrestling on the WWE Network. If you don’t know what NXT is, it’s like a third brand for WWE. NXT is a brand that brings in rookie wrestlers aka “new” wrestlers. WWE NXT is a weekly program on the WWE Network which streams every Wednesday night at 8 p.m.

I’m just starting to watch NXT every Wednesday night. I’ve started watching their NXT Takeover ppvs each time they have one but now all year long I’ve been watching older NXT episodes and trying to catch up.

NXT is a third band that was created by Triple H and the legendary Dusty Rhodes. Both of those men ran the show for a while but since Dusty Rhodes died in real life, Triple H runs the show all by himself now. Vince McMahon is not in charge of NXT, Triple H is. Vince McMahon runs the main roster which are RAW/Smackdown and the PPV’s. Triple H runs NXT Wednesdays and the NXT Takeover ppvs.

I’ve become really addicted to NXT wrestling and haven’t stopped watching. It’s just amazing stuff. NXT became really hot in the wrestling industry. RAW and Smackdown isn’t so good lately and I find NXT way better. Why?

I’m about to explain why…

  • Vince McMahon doesn’t run NXT: I’m so glad Vince McMahon doesn’t run the NXT brand. If he did then he would have completely ruined the show just like he’s screwing up RAW and Smackdown. Triple H is running NXT all by himself and I think he’s doing a great job.
  • NXT gives us more wrestling than storylines and promos: You know how on RAW and Smackdown those shows are 90% storylines and wrestlers cutting a promo most of the time? RAW and Smackdown usually start off with wrestlers giving a promo on the mic for a long time but on NXT they give us wrestling right away. NXT does have rookie wrestlers cut a promo out in the ring but not as much as on the main roster.
  • NXT storylines and feuds are more entertaining than the main roster: One thing for sure, Triple H knows how to keep people watching NXT. The writing on the NXT shows is so good.
  • Better booking of matches: One big reason why NXT is getting so hot in the wrestling industry is that the booking of matches are better than the main roster. NXT books really good matches during the Wednesday night shows and on TakeOver ppvs.
  • The wrestling is way better than RAW/SD: Another reason why NXT is so hot right now is ’cause the wrestling is really good. NXT puts on more exciting and fun matches than RAW/SD. Triple H knows wrestling and he knows how to put on a good wrestling match. He gets that from his own wrestling career. He wants NXT to have good wrestling and does a good job of that. That’s what the fans want to see is actual “wrestling” and that’s why they all turn to NXT wrestling.
  • NXT created better gimmicks and wrestling characters: Triple H and NXT are doing things that Vince McMahon couldn’t have done years ago. Yes, Vince McMahon created a lot of wrestler characters in old school WWE in the 80’s and early 90’s but now NXT is here, Triple has created some really good wrestling characters out of that brand. I don’t think Vince McMahon could have created characters like Bobby Roode, Asuka, Finn Balor, Shinsuke Nakumura, AJ Styles, Bayley, Elias, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, etc. All those characters came from Triple H’s NXT brand and he continues to create even more characters like Aleister Black, Kairi Sane, Nikki Cross, Johnny Gargano, Adam Cole, Kassius Ohno, The Velveteen Dream, etc. This is another reason the NXT brand is getting so hot now is ’cause they’ve created some really cool wrestlers through that brand.

There you have it. I’m a really huge NXT fan. I’m late getting into the show but I’m having a blast watching it. The show’s a great wrestling series. I hope NXT stays around a long time and I think it will. They continue to get more popular as the ratings for RAW/SD continues to tank. More people are watching NXT ’cause they want to see “wrestling” and RAW/SD Live doesn’t give us wrestling anymore. When is Vince ever going to wake up and listen to the fans for once?

Hulk Hogan posts new NWO video along with Scott Hall and Kevin Nash… teasing WWE return???

I know some wrestling fans are sick of the NWO and think they’re old and washed up… blah blah blah. Ya know something? NWO 4 Life isn’t just a slogan. It means they’ll always be around. NWO has been a wrestling faction for 22 years like Hulk’s tweet said and as you can see, they still haven’t changed. Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash still look really good together.

Remember, the NWO made their debut in WCW. I’ve been watching a lot of WCW Nitro and I watched the formation of the NWO and it’s very interesting stuff. It all started out with Kevin Nash and Scott aka The Outsiders and they were teasing a third member which they didn’t name for a while. The third man turned out to be Hulk Hogan. The NWO made their formation at the Bash at the Beach ppv in 1996. Yeah, that was 22 years ago and the NWO are still around as you can see. Remember, NWO4Life.

Are they about to make a big WWE return? It seems like it. They are definitely teasing something. Remember, the WWE owns the copyrights and trademarks to the NWO gimmick and the name. The guys can’t use the NWO gimmick anywhere else so it’s definitely seems like they’re making their way back to WWE. Could they make their return at Summerslam this Sunday??? We’ll have to wait and see.

I’m a huge fan of NWO, though. I’ve been watching a lot of WCW Monday Nitro on the WWE Network. Once I finish watching WCW Nitro then I’ll start watching all the old WCW ppvs. I’m almost a 100 episodes in WCW Nitro and still got a lot more to go. WCW is pretty historic stuff. I’m glad Vince McMahon bought WCW. If he didn’t then we wouldn’t be able to watch old WCW on streaming services. WCW wrestling is fucking awesome. Wished I watched it on TV back then.

When Hulk Hogan returns to WWE television on RAW or Smackdown, will there still be a place for him in today’s WWE? Yes! There will be plenty for him to do!

Hulk Hogan is an icon in wrestling but at the same time, he is admittedly one of the most controversial personalities in the industry. He is one of those who you either love or hate. Through the wrestling forums and the blogs, there’s an assumption that there is no place for Hogan in today’s WWE. That’s an assumption made by the haters, of course. They make claims that there is nothing for him to do in today’s generation of wrestling. They’re saying stuff that if Hogan returns no one will care for him anymore due to his negative and controversial past in the news. They are also saying that there is nothing for Hogan to do creatively with the new WWE roster.

I would say all that is a bunch of bullshit. Ya see, Hogan gets a lot of bad press in the national news and even the wrestling smart sites give him bad press too and its sad that a lot of wrestling fans believe the stuff they about him. I think the wrestling news media are in a desperate attempt to destroy the man too. Love him or hate him all you want to… you can destroy the man all you want to but you can’t get rid of Hulkmania. Ya just can’t ’cause Hulkamania will always be around. You can try and tarnish Hulk’s legacy all you want but it will never happen. Hulk is too big of an icon in wrestling and the man is still extremely popular.

If you want evidence that Hulk Hogan is still popular with fans, if you watch RAW, SD and the ppvs lately, you’ll see a lot of fans in the audience wearing Hulk Hogan wrestling gear — there are also fans who go as far as dressing up like him at live wrestling events. There are also a lot of fans that still wear nWo shirts after all these years. If you go to Hulk’s twitter page, he’s always posting videos of him meeting lots of fans. So yeah, wrestling fans still love Hulk Hogan and I think they will welcome him back to WWE TV with open arms. You can hate the man all you want to but Hulk Hogan is still a huge draw. Watch for it… when he returns to RAW or SD (which ever show WWE chooses to put him on), I’m pretty positive the ratings will go up a bit.

As for what there is for Hogan to do when he comes back to WWE TV, there’s plenty. I think a one more match is a possibility and they’ll probably put Hogan in a GM role. Hogan would be a good general manger for either RAW or Smackdown.

I think Hogan returning in today’s WWE with all the new superstars would be a good opportunity for them. It’ll be a good opportunity for them all to perform with a legend for one. All those new stars got into the business ’cause of Hulk Hogan pretty much.

Debating people about Hulk Hogan is pretty tough ’cause he has a mix of fans and lots of haters. Don’t debate about Hulk with the haters ’cause they’ll always have negative opinions about him no matter what is being said. Yep, Hulk is still very popular with the fans and that’s what all the wrestling smart news sites don’t want you to know about. Yeah, I’m a huge wrestling nerd but I hate all them wrestling news sites online. I think Dave Meltzer is an asshole and I don’t like his reporting at all. They’re all pretty bad really. The reason a lot of wrestling news sites out there are negative with Hulk Hogan is ’cause it helps draw in traffic with Hogan haters. That’s why they won’t stop the bad press on him.

Hulk is a legend and an icon and anyone who denies that is a stupid fuckin’ jealous idiot. I really do think a lot of people hate the man out of pure jealousy and nothing more. I mean, think about it right? Hulk is a 12 time champion — won 6 titles in WCW and won 6 titles in WWE… he also won the tag team titles with Edge once. Hulk accomplished a lot and he became a very rich man due to his wrestling career and his acting career. He’s a movie star too. Despite all the negativity and backlash he gets, he’s doing pretty well for himself.

If Hulk Hogan does happen to have one last match in WWE, who would he wrestle against??? It would probably be against a WWE veteran or one of the newer stars. Maybe Hulk can have a match with Triple H or Brock Lesnar. If he’s going to have a match with one of the new stars, I would say either Braun Strowman or Roman Reigns. Even better, they should put him against John Cena. Hulk Hogan vs. John Cena would be cool ’cause that’s a dream match that never happened and should happen. There’s a lot of speculation out there that Hogan will never have one more match due to his age and his back problems but ya never know. I think they’ll figure something out for him.

Hulkamania still rules. Don’t listen to the haters.

Hulk Hogan celebrates his WWE Hall of Fame re-induction with fans in Clearwater, Florida… William Shatner should take note on how to treat fans in public…

Ya see, William Shatner should take note from Hulk Hogan on how to treat fans in public ’cause Hulk knows how to do it right! In this video, the Hulkster celebrates his re-induction into the WWE Hall of Fame with fans in Clearwater, Florida. The Hulkster stands out in the street taking selfies with fans of all types. Hulk takes the time to chat with every fan, smiling and being nice to them all.

https://www.pscp.tv/w/1DXxyYZLgAgxM

Hulk Hogan seems like a very nice guy to me as you can see in the video. I don’t know what the haters are talking about. Hulk  is very good with his fans and always has been.

Despite all the bad publicity and hatred Hulk gets in his life, he’s still very popular as you can see.

I’m glad to see the Hulkster being very happy again ’cause he does look very happy in that video. Hulk had a difficult past several years so he deserves to be happy again. There are always people trying to destroy this man and here he is still standing strong.

Hulk is not a racist and this video should be good enough to prove that ’cause Hulk is seen here taking selfies with black people too and even talking to them.

I’m glad Hulk is back in the Hall of Fame. Now hopefully he’ll be back on RAW soon.

Why the wrestling community is so dumb and messed up… more on Hulk Hogan being on good terms with WWE again…

It is interesting how the wrestling community treats Hulk Hogan. Yeah, there are a lot of Hogan haters in the wrestling community. Why? Many Hogan haters see him as this conceited and arrogant jerk. In other words, many see him as an egomaniac. They also believe he’s a toxic person in the wrestling industry and in real life. Many people believe that Hulk Hogan buried other wrestlers in the industry and destroyed them… that is probably why he has so many other wrestlers that hate Hulk too like Bret Hart, Iron Sheik, Honky Tonk Man and wrestlers such as those. You see, Hogan had haters long before the Gawker controversy started.

There are many other reasons why a lot of people can’t stand Hulk. They can’t stand him as an in-ring performer too. He gets criticized for his wrestling skills and mic work all the time. A lot of people think he knows only a few wrestling moves and many thinks he’s too old to be wrestling. There are too many reasons why a lot of people can’t stand Hulk, I can go on all day about this.

Look, I used to hate Hulk Hogan like everyone else but I don’t anymore. Why? Not only that I think he’s innocent from all this sex tape stuff going on, I’m beginning to realize that Hulk Hogan is not a bad man that the haters are trying to make him out to be. He really is not a bad guy at all. He seems like a nice man from what I’m seeing. Hulk is good with the fans and he’s good with other wrestlers too. Hulk never tried to buy other talent like the haters claimed. He always did his best to help put others over. I mean, if it wasn’t for Hulk Hogan we wouldn’t have gotten all these other iconic wrestlers over the years: The Ultimate Warrior, Rowdy Piper, Andre, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, etc. Without Hulk Hogan, we wouldn’t have gotten those guys I listed.

Whether you like him or not, Hulk Hogan is definitely one of the best in the business ’cause he’s the one who put the wrestling business on the map in the first place. He had many classic matches over the years and the haters will never admit that.

Ever since the announcement came out that Hulk was going to be reinstated back in the WWE Hall of Fame after this sex tape stuff, all the haters say the WWE shouldn’t be doing that ’cause there are many who believes that Hulk Hogan is a racist. Well gee… keep in mind that these wrestling fans were the same people who love Chris Benoit. Ya know, the man who murdered his own family and killed himself after, yet a lot of wrestling fans continue to love Benoit. Wrestling fans continued to support a murderer and yet they all continue to treat Hulk Hogan badly.

WWE female wrestlers like Paige got sex videos and nude pics leaked to the internet but she got no negative backlash for that. Instead, people defended her. Those pervy male wrestling fans loved the Paige sex videos and nude pics and they wanted more.

Yet Hulk Hogan is treated badly over a sex tape. Really?

I don’t like the wrestling community at all even if I’m a wrestling nerd ’cause wrestling fans on the internet are nothing but douchebags. That’s why I try to stay away from the wrestling forums online, ya know? The “smart” fans in the wrestling forums are horrible. They’re always opinionated and negative.

Hulk is not a bad man at all and I think this is a guy who deserves more respect knowing what he did to the wrestling industry over the years. It’s sad that the haters can’t admit that. I really do think the haters are so-hell bent on destroying the guy and obsessed with him ’cause they are jealous of his wrestling legacy. Nothing more. Nothing less. They want the life that he has and they know they can’t get it.

Don’t get me wrong, though. What Hulk said on the racist tape was wrong and offensive, no doubt but all of us make mistakes and we all say dumb things. We just got to learn from the mistakes and move on from them. That’s what Hulk is trying to do.

I feel Hogan, though ’cause knowing my own experience, I know what it’s like to go through bad publicity and go through a negative backlash. I’ve been there myself. It’s hard being a public figure, I know it. I guess one of the reasons I’m back to supporting Hogan again is ’cause I feel sorry for the guy, I really do. Hulk changed wrestling for everybody whether he was a good guy wrestler or a bad guy wrestler. He’s one of the best performers of all time. He changed lives for a lot of people out there including mine. I guess you have to watch what you say or do no matter what ’cause the internet is a dangerous place. I’ve been destroyed over stupid shit online myself. I just learned to move on from it and keep moving forward.

Hulk is a good guy. Don’t judge the book by it’s cover. I don’t think he deserves all this hatred at all. Just a bunch of bitter losers jealous of him ’cause he’s a wrestling icon. End of story.
