  • WWE Developmental Champions (1999-2019) Last night at NXT Takeover: New York, a new NXT champion was crowned.  Although this is the 17th reign of a champion of NXT, it is only the latest it long lineage of champions at the top of the various developmental territories. It has been twenty years since the WWF first set up formal arrangements with regional groups.  While they had worked with Jerry Jarrett's USWA, Paul Heyman's ECW, Jim Cornette's SMW and groups over throughout the 1990s, the system was really started by Jim Ross in 1999.  While these groups had varying levels of success, most had a featured champion and many times this champion was someone with a developmental contract and was being groomed for ...

  • First Non-McMahon Pro-Wrestling Show at MSG in over 58 years! This weekend the most of the pro-wrestling world focuses on the greater New York City area as numerous big events are happening.  While the WWE's Wrestlemania 35 is receiving a most media attention and NXT Takeover is perhaps the one most fans are anticipating.  The historic nature of the G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden cannot be downplayed.  It is the first time in nearly 60 years that a wrestling show is being promoted at the Garden by someone who is not a McMahon.On November 14th, 1960, promoters Jack Pfefer & Pedro Martinez ran a card at the third incarnation of Madison Square Garden in New York City.  This card drew just under 13,000.While the card ...

  • National Multiple Personality Day - Pro-Wrestlers with the Most Personas There has always been a great deal of discussion about the pro-wrestlers with the most identities.  While some wrestlers have had a large number of names and nicknames, they did not have as many distinctively different characters as one might think by looking at a Wikipedia entry.Don KaltNo one had more individual personas then Don Kalt.  He wrestled in five different decades and the handsome young partner of Ray Stevens in the Columbus and the bearded, tattooed and grizzled roughneck Don Fargo working undercards on AWA's ESPN seem like two radically different people.  In between those two are nearly a dozen characters including a bodybuilder, a biker, a gunslinger and a classic bleach blonde heel.Glen ...

  • WWE's Elimination Chamber (2002-2019) The steel cage match had a long history with the company from the days of Bruno Sammartino.  It got an overhaul during the Rock-N-Wrestling days with the big blue cage, which was the company standard for more than a decade.  In 1997, they brought in the "Hell in the Cell" cage, which raised the bar for years.  By 2002, the WWE was still in a steady business decline.  The Survivor Series, considered one of the big four shows in years past, was given a big new gimmick match.  The backstory was that Raw GM Eric Bischoff was creating a dangerous new match (and it proved to be just that), although in reality Triple H has been credited for ...
