It is perhaps the oldest word still in use in the English language to describe hand-to-hand combat. Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of combat with references to it as early as the Iliad,in which Homer recounts the Trojan War in the 13th or 12th century BC.
You cant fool me.
The Simpsons isnt that old. Just some of its jokes.

Just watched the end of this week's WWE RAW.

Miz cashed in his Money In The Bank and won the WWE Championship. What made it even funnier was the close up they did of a young girl in the crowd just after the match...obviously a Randy Orton fan...she looks seriously angry with what happened :lol: :lol: :lol:

Managed to find a picture of it......

Survivor series was with out a decent match.
Well the Kabal one was good except the end
Knew it would be Kabal all match then Ziggler with a one move win
Raw well the Miz thing was kinda obvious when he said that he wasn't taking part in a match.

Knew Cena would run in and kinda get his revenge they wont get rid of him hes there biggest urner

Nah, course they won't, they'd be mad to get rid of Cena at the moment...we might not like him much but (to quote Hulk Hogan) he puts asses in seats and earns coinage.

You're right about Survivor Series, it was abysmal. The only 'traditional' Surivivor Series type match was the Team Mysterio vs Team Del Rio one. Kind of misses the point of it being called Survivor Series. Can't wait to see how they butcher the King Of The Ring tournament (again) on Raw next week. :(

Speaking of Hogan, I thought his little promo after the last TNA Impact was pretty bad, we all know that pro wrestling is fake but he more or less sh!t on the entire career of the Dudley Boys :? By trying to sound more 'real', he's making the business look like more of a sham than it already is.

Well the Survivor series thing Id of expected a NXT vs Fan faves team. As we rarely see them wrestle.
And is CM Punk becoming a commentator?

Speaking of CM Punk..
http://www.24wrestling.com/news.php?sub ... om=&ucat=6&

The Hardys look out of it

Also anyone "Following" William Regal on Twitter (he was just in Blackpool to bad it wasn't a few weeks ago. Would of been great to meet the man him self)
"I started training at 15 and became a pro at 16.I tried out for WWE and WCW in 1991.WCW offered me the first (cont) http://tl.gd/750k62"

Damn nearly 20years and no major title won

For the time being. As far as I'm aware, he's got a serious hip injury so was going to be sidelined for the rest of the year anyway. Maybe it's a bit worse than they first thought? It'll probably be like Bradshaw, he'll do commentary for between 6 months and a year, then wrestle again. He's got a bit more personality than bloody Matt Striker at least.

One thing that did make me go WTF!
Ezicail (SP) Jackson trying to be a good guy?I hate him as he was annoying in ECW and they made him the last champ for it instead of somebody that has been on it for ages

One other thing I remembered that pissed me off about Survivor series was the Edge/Kane match.
Well the end of it.
What a sodding set up

Im going to have to restart my Last week in Wrestling blog post

That would be Kane.

But Paul keeps a good grip on his urnings

Ah so Kane is now linked in with the power of the urn. Not followed it all massively for the last 4/5 years so easy to lose track. Surprised to find out noone has bothered to do a half decent wrestling wiki yet. Plenty of storylines, items and wrestlers to fill in. Probably wind up being as big as the real wiki...
