On Monday Night Raw a few weeks ago, a loud contingent of pro wrestling fans found a new way to disrespect the women pro wrestlers in the ring.
It happens once a year. It's the perfect episode of TV for our times: a basic-cable version of the selfie, the Twitter @reply and the Facebook status update all rolled into one. The 2015 edition of this great, fascinating occurrence will happen tonight... on a pro wrestling show. It’s one you should probably tune… »
The advantage of a pre-determined sport like pro wrestling is that promoters can book the ideal storylines. Usually, that means you'll get a Wrestlemania main event the crowd is excited to see, though usually they're not supposed to be booing the good guy a few days before the big show. Good thing you can edit out… »
You'd think that the first weather-related cancellation of an episode of Monday Night Raw in the show's 1000-plus episode history would be bad news for the WWE. But the many inches of snow aimed at Hartford, Connecticut, the location of tonight's now-scuttled Raw taping, are a sprinkle of luck that will spare WWE… »
Seven and a half years ago, one of the most acclaimed pro wrestlers of all time, Chris Benoit, murdered his wife and his seven-year-old son. He then killed himself. Today, some gamers want to play as Chris Benoit in a wrestling video game and keep trying to make that happen. The company behind the game doesn't… »
Well, here we are. Another year, another WWE game. Another awkward cooling off period as the runaway hype train of YouTube videos, updates, Q&A sessions, tweets, blogs, interviews, panels with Steve Austin wearing spectacles and random mid carders telling us "THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER, THERE ARE SO MANY MODES AND UH…… »
What would happen if wrestling legend Jim Ross did commentary for all our favorite video games? Hilarity, that's what. »
In pro wrestling, the moves may be

Sign that I might be too obsessed with WWE and Assassin's Creed: I think the Undertaker is cosplaying as an Assassin's Creed character these days. Seriously, how did I not notice this before? Or am I just imagining things now? »
Even if you're not a pro wrestling fanatic, you might be impressed by the insane deal the people behind World Wrestling Entertainment just announced since it's yet another sign that the old way that TV worked is dying fast. »
Whatcha gonna do when Glitchemania runs wild all ove… oh, God, no! NO! What's happened to Yokozuna's spine?! »
One of the WWE series' longstanding virtues is its deep character creation toolkit, which fans have used to create all sorts of wrestlers who don't appear in the main game's roster. Such as Captain America, and Wolverine, and Spider-Man. »
Twenty-five years ago my best friend and I set up a wrestling ring in my basement—four barstools for the turnbuckles, some old mattresses for the canvas. The actual wrestling we did was hesitant, unplanned and uncompelling. But man, the stuff we did out of the ring makes me smile to this day. »
The best thing 2K Sports has done for pro wrestling games so far is assemble this incredible panel consisting of Jim Ross, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan (he was robbed last night!), Rey Mysterio, Steve Austin, Paul Heyman, Mick Foley and a seemingly intoxicated Ric Flair.
