Pro Wrestling Syndicate’s Bombshells held its fourth women’s wrestling event Saturday May 11, 2013 in Iselin, New Jersey where La Rosa Negra was crowned the promotion’s new champion.
In the opening match La Rosa Negra defeated Santana Garrett via submission in a fast paced match that received “this is awesome chants” reminiscent of the prior PWS Bombshells event opener between La Rosa and Mia Yim. Bright futures for both of these girls.
May 17, 1963 – Bruno Sammartino defeated Nature Boy Buddy Rogers in Madison Square Garden to win the WWWF Title; the match lasted 48 seconds. Recently dubbed as “the original screwjob”, promoters Joseph “Toots” Mondt and Vince McMahon Sr. led Rogers to believe that the contest would end in disqualification. Bruno informed Rogers of the last minute change in plans in the ring as they were about to wrestle each other.
Former TNA Star Jesse Neal spoke with Robert “The Krupy” Krupar from www.artofwrestling.cz about various topics.

David Dexter reports that Scott Hudson was a guest on Inside the Ropes and compared Goldberg to Ryback. Here are highlights:
On Sting’s character changing into the Crow gimmick in 1996: “I thought it was brilliant. Sting for better or worse, is never going to be confused with Shawn Michaels or Kenta Kobashi or the great workers of the business. It’s not that Sting was a poor worker but he wasn’t gonna go out there and give you a 5 star match every time he laced up a pair of boots. But the thing that got him over was his charisma. You go back and look at those Sting promos, they weren’t that good either. They were passable promos, some didn’t make any sense but he had such a charisma that he got over. And Eric, to his everlasting credit, got the idea, he said “What can we do to get Sting over? He’s only getting so hot and then when we try to put him on top, the buyrates go down, the ratings go down, we need to do something to elevate him to where he can become the top guy” And Eric’s idea was, you know everyone likes Sting nobody doesn’t like Sting so Eric thought Sting can’t really work and isn’t that great at promos so how about if we have him not work and not say anything and then he’ll be really over. So that’s what they did. If you go back and look at that whole build up to Starrcade 97, it took him months to even say anything or point the black bat at somebody. And he was never more over than at that time when he didn’t say anything and he didn’t wrestle. That was the most popular he’s ever been.”

Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool has finally broken her silence on the taboo topic of her marriage to The Undertaker. In collaboration with MichelleMcCool.net, the four-time champion candidly addresses her relationship with “The Deadman” in a video blog that will be released this summer. A teaser has been released where she appears to respond to critics attributing her lofty position in WWE to her influential partner rather than her ability to perform.
Obviously Wrestlemania 1 was a success, and thus Wrestlemania 30 for 30 continues with our review of Wrestlemania 2 – What The World Is Coming To… a show that took place from three different arenas on the same day with three different main events.

We’ll talk the matches, the celebs, and the build-up PLUS MORE!
