• Rum, Sodomy And the Lash

    The Sandman is a liability for ECW and he should be cut loose, says
    Bladejob. Avert your eyes from the naked drunk wrestlers in the
    ring, please. Trauma of the highest degree when ECW comes to Pensacola.

  • Your Wrestling Toy of the Week is- Justin Credible?

    When I see Justin Credible, I don’t think “eyebrows better suited for that creepy gossip writer on E! Gossip Show.” What were they thinking? I realize that they are trying to avoid the Ziggy Stardust glam stigma of no eyebrows at all, but these eye-mustaches are ridiculous.

  • Fucking Awesome?

    But Awesome put on a great match without relying on splintering wood for their shock-value cheers. That is a mark of a true champion in ECW, when they can impress the increasingly blood-thirsty Mongol hordes with a match NOT involving blood, tables, or violence against women.

  • My Wrestlemania Hell

    Matthew Damascus takes a break from normal continuity to discuss a ho-hum Wrestlemania 2000.

  • Deconstructing Those Hardy Boyz – Part One

    And I’m straying from my original point, which is simply that, there are sites out there that have graphic depictions of ‘a lucky fan’ having a saucy/randy/raunchy threesome (preceded or followed by meaningful conversation and cuddling, mind you) with the Boyz that would make any tried-and-true indie wrestling fan faint dead away…

  • Mommy, Why’d You Let The Drunk Beat Me Up?

    Ditch this gimmick like the plague. It’s fucking bad, trailer park, crazy uncle, kind of shit. The snot rag doesn’t make sense. The gesture in itself is not particularly vile or sinister, it’s more bizarre like that kid who ate paste and boogers in second grade. AND RAVEN IS NO PASTE EATER!

    Araceli Lemos

    Shortly after AFI Fest 2021 wrapped, Generoso spoke at length with director, Araceli Lemos about her award-winning and potent feature debut, Holy Emy. Lemos’s film uses elements of body horror in her story about the exoticization of two Filipina sisters living in Greece and how that exploitation creates a distance between them.
