ECW Original Mikey Whipwreck to team with former WWE Star Curt Hawkins at RightCoastPro September 13, 2014 in Newark, Delaware

RightCoastPro Wrestling (RCP) has announced that ECW Original Mikey Whipwreck will be returning and teaming with Brian Myers (Formerly Curt Hawkins in WWE) on September 13, 2014 at their “Off The Wall” event.   Advanced $15 tickets are now on sale for the September 13th date being held at the Life Community Church on Otts Chapel Road, in Newark, Delaware with tickets at the door being $20.

The return of Mikey Whipwreck has been highly anticipated by RCP fans after his great performance and in-ring antics at the company’s November 2013 event.  Teaming with Curt Hawkins, should lead to a super compelling match-up against RCP regulars, King Mega and “Outlaw” Stockade who have teamed recently claiming to be the most dominant force in RCP.  Whipwreck, with multiple tag team titles (including partners Mick Foley and Tajiri) and Hawkins being a former WWE Tag Team Champ along with partner Zack Ryder should have no trouble with RCP’s dominant force of Mega & Stockade as none here  are strangers to tag team action!

The action-packed card for “Off The Wall” will be presented with full professional production including:

  • RightCoastPro’s  Heavyweight Champion, Sean Royal facing challenger “Hardcore Champion” Pedro Duro for the Championship Title.
  • Chris “The Show” Steeler teaming with Colton Quest will be facing arch-rival Aaron Stride who has partnered with Damian Gibbs.
  • Bazooka Joe will be facing #1 Brian Johnson with a “Last Man Standing” stipulation.
  • The team of Jason Gotti and Alvin Alvarez will be facing each other in a 2-out-of-3 falls match.
  • Clarke Kelly’s client, “Adrenaline” Ryan Rush will be facing Kelly’s ex-client; Anthony Bowens as Bowens seeks redemption against his former cohorts for casting him aside!
  • Sebastian Night leads “Mercenary” Nick Sohlo into battle against a very angry, Courageous Cruz.  They took the super hero’s cape in a previous battle and it’s just not sitting well with Cruz!
  • “Legendary Chick Magnet” Mozart Fontaine teaming again with Francis Kipland Stevens, will be  adding “Dealmaker” Ruby Rubino to their fold.   Rubino has made a deal with Harry M. Baldwin in which he can pick 2 partners of his choosing to compete in a “6 Card Stud Challenge”.  Word has it he’s been working with Mikes Guy,  coordinator of RCP’s Ladies Men trio from last fall!

RightCoastPro aims to bring in the best talent on the right coast while providing a family friendly environment within a comfortable and clean arena with plenty of free parking, full concessions and where every seat is up close to the action!  For information or to buy tickets online, check the website www.RightCoastPro.com  or e-mail to Lisa@rightcoastpro.com.  You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Nostalgia, Tradition, and the Resurgence of the NWA http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/90175/nostalgia-tradition-and-the-resurgence-of-the-nwa/ http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/90175/nostalgia-tradition-and-the-resurgence-of-the-nwa/#comments Sun, 31 Aug 2014 02:34:56 +0000 http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/?p=90175 Before Vince's acquisition of the World Wide Wrestling Federation from his father, the WWWF was the NWA's representative territory in the massive population centers along the east coast's megalopolis.

NWA

Nostalgia is a tricky thing. In small doses, it helps color memories fondly and allows us to appreciate where we’ve come from. Too much, and we’re quickly living in the past, pining for a reality that is long since gone. Nostalgia, by its nature, neglects to remember the negative aspects of the past, thereby leaving us vulnerable to repeating previous mistakes. Professional wrestling is prime ground for the best and worst that nostalgia brings out of us. But, alongside nostalgia, exists tradition.

Tradition operates within the same sphere as nostalgia. Tradition is nostalgia’s stoic older brother, keeping a slightly wider orbit than its petulant sibling. Not content to dwell or ruminate, tradition upholds the elements that run consistently throughout multiple generations, with a steely focus on the future and what is yet to be accomplished.

Since Paul George assembled wrestling promotors from all over the country – in 1948, to form the National Wrestling Alliance – until Vince McMahon took over cable television and monopolized territorial talent in the early 1980′s, the NWA World Heavyweight Champion was recognized by discerning fans as the finest that professional wrestling had to offer. Before Vince’s acquisition of the World Wide Wrestling Federation from his father, the WWWF was the NWA’s representative territory in the massive population centers along the east coast’s megalopolis.

But, over time, for multitudes of reasons, public perceptions can, and will, change. With the highest visibility on television, the rebranded World Wrestling Federation became the prominent promotion, and its emphasis on drama and spectacle became part of what society, at large, accepted as the most accurate example of what was now called sports entertainment.

Jim Crockett’s Mid-Atlantic territory carried the NWA banner valiantly against Vince’s juggernaut, but after Crockett sold the promotion to Ted Turner, the billionaire media mogul left the alliance. Without a globally viewed member, the NWA’s smaller territories began to falter, and soon, the influence of the governing body itself began to wain. Shane Douglas, famously, won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in Eastern Championship Wrestling, only to reject the title’s lineage and rechristen it as the ECW World Heavyweight Championship.

WCW’s eventual mismanagement led to its sale to McMahon in 2001, and the professional wrestling business has since been dominated by World Wrestling Entertainment in the same way that Coca Cola owns global soda sales. The Jarrett’s TNA promotion sought to become a competitor and bring the NWA back to prominence along with it. Ultimately, however, the pairing didn’t prove to be beneficial for both parties: the Carter family’s Panda Energy purchased the company and rebranded it Impact Wrestling, leaving an, essentially, jilted NWA sitting on the curbside.

Currently, WWE has a “performance center” at a media arts-based technical college, intended to kick out WWE-ready talent: from wrestlers, agents, announcers, and referees to writers, video editors, lighting designers, and segment producers. Efficient? Probably. But, it could be said that this process lacks a varied assortment of perspectives on the business. TNA – as Impact Wrestling – struggles to find traction, attempting to emulate WWE’s success with less experience, knowledge, and far fewer resources. They, arguably, seem intent on not only ignoring their strengths, but on selling a great deal of nostalgia as a means of generating bursts of short term interest.

Meanwhile, fans of tradition and of the more essential elements of professional wrestling have kept the NWA alive. Smaller promotions, banding together with others, have once again formed a reciprocal, NWA-affiliated network, fostering a national independent wrestling cooperative – strength in solidarity – with each member sharing in the same overall goal: to present, again, the option of tradition. Not quick burning nostalgia, but the best of what got us here.

The modern National Wrestling Alliance has taken many steps to assert its rightful place in professional wrestling, most notably, re-establishing a connection with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Once again, the NWA World Heavyweight Championship is just that – a globally recognized title, competed for by the best that pro wrestling has to offer. Moreover, in this Internet age, fans from all over the world can immediately take in the matches, stay current with the title pictures, and communicate instantly with like minded people, fueling an international discussion.

Going forward, the NWA, the patriarch of all we know about professional wrestling, is poised, once again, to become the alternative to “sports entertainment”. Fans (like me) of history and tradition are grateful for this. We don’t have to, perhaps, lose ourselves in the nostalgia of a time long gone. We can, instead, lose ourselves in the quest to build upon the unshakable foundations of what has already been created.

15 Things You Forgot About Triple H’s Rise To Power In WWE

By Grahame Herbert of whatculture.com:

Triple H is a 13 time WWE World Champion and current executive vice president of talent and live events. Those career achievements have tended to generate more resentment than admiration, with fierce accusations of him being a political and selfish manipulator.

His association with main event star Shawn Michaels, and later his relationship with Stephanie McMahon contributed to the stigma. Fans, particularly in the internet wrestling community, feel as if Hunter exploited his friendship and relationship to elevate himself and keep others down. It doesn’t look good when you’re hanging round with the most self serving WWF Champion of the 90?s in HBK. It appeared as if Hunter was getting a leg-up just because he was in Michaels’ kliq.

The same was true when he fell in love with Stephanie McMahon in 2000. Fans judged that The Game was now winning all the time because he was de-facto a McMahon. It didn’t help that he also piled on a mass of muscle and started having some truly awful matches from 2002 to 2003.

The fact he has since gone on to become integral to WWE’s corporate structure also adds to the scepticism around his persona. Then you have all the former stars like Mick Foley and Riccardo Rodriguez who cast Hunter in negative tones, raising questions over his effectiveness to manage WWE.

Yet a lot of the conjecture around Triple H is uninformed. Fans have either forgot, or choose to ignore, the facts behind The Game’s career. This feature will detail the examples of how Hunter became a self made man, a wrestler who strived to make his impact in the profession. The Michaels and Stephanie relationships were coincidence to what was always going to be a stellar career. As for his progression into the corporate world, he was actually a businessman way before he was a wrestler.

Here we take a look at the things everybody forgets about ‘The Game’ Triple H.

15. Work Ethic From A Young Age

The most successful wrestlers in WWE are the ones with the strongest work ethic. Case in example is John Cena, who is constantly on the job representing the brand. Forget the 30 minutes in the ring, this is a man who is sometimes doing 30 days in a row of media and charity events across North America.

Where does that discipline come from? Probably the same place Triple H got his work ethic – the gym.

From an early age, Paul Levesque discovered the benefits of weight lifting. Going into his local gym, ‘Muscles In Motion’, the teenage Levesque learned all about work-rate producing results. He was blown away by what he could achieve, with the investment of time and effort, he was able to attain a ripped muscular body.

The discipline he learned here at a young age became ingrained into his life perspective. Regular repeated weight lifts would give him results and make him feel good, the more he did it, the stronger he got, meaning the more he could lift. It was all about discipline. Do the work, get the body. That applied to nutrition too, Paul was still a teenager, yet he was focusing on plain chicken breasts and grilled fish.

It wasn’t that Hunter was learning about bodybuilding; he was actually learning about working for results.

Posted by Greg De Marco of http://www.411mania.com:

John Cena’s return to Raw from a one week hiatus brought about more complaints of him being stale (those complaints are stale), being booked too strong and hurting Bray Wyatt’s credibility. It also brought out more calls for the face of the company to do an about-face…and turn heel. And while I agree that John Cena would be an amazing heel (and Cena himself seems to agree that he has a heel run in him), there is no one in position to assume the mantle of face of the company. No one to grant a record breaking number of wishes. No one to sell truckloads of merchandise. No hero for the kids to worship. No…well, no John Cena!

The tragedy in all of this is that the WWE had the next John Cena. A man who was so insanely over he could have realistically defeated CM Punk for the WWE Championship—prematurely ending the Straight Edge Superstar’s monumental title reign—and no one would have doubted the decision. A man who had boatloads of natural charisma, an uncanny connection with the WWE Universe and marketability that was second only to John Cena himself.

Oh, and did I mention the catchphrase? Yeah, he had a great catchphrase…

Make no mistake about it, “Feed Me More” was one of the most over catchphrases of the past ten years. That does make a difference in the success of a superstar. Ryback was over, and ready to have the rocket strapped to his back.

When the WWE needed someone to fill in for John Cena against CM Punk at the above referenced Hell In A Cell, that man became Ryback. Up to that point, Ryback largely won short, exhibition style matches with no intention other than to get the monstrous Ryback over with the largest fan base possible. In fact, he was so over that John Cena is a documented fan.

RAW

WWE has a legends problem.

Raw kicked off with a Hall of Fame forum, featuring WWE icons Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels. The segment was lukewarm at best as it was an awkward mix of scripted opinion and false chemistry.

This has been a theme in WWE as of late, with many big names failing to deliver on their potential.

Since returning to WWE, Hogan has been a walking commercial for the WWE Network, Flair has been an awkward shell of himself struggling to memorize written promos and Shawn Michaels has just been bored.

If WWE truly wants to make the most out of its legends, the promotion needs to use them regularly in WWE storylines.

Ric Flair could work as an ally of Randy Orton, who has been a stale character for years now. Michaels, who played somewhat of a devil’s advocate on Raw, can build on his heel turn from last year and become a full-time member of The Authority. The red-hot anti-American storyline featuring Rusev has Hogan’s name written all over it.
