SummerSlam 2014 Review: The Pay-Per-View We Deserved (*spoilers*)

Since Wrestlemania in April, there haven’t been any storylines that have culminated the way neither fans nor I thought they should.

Every year, SummerSlam is usually the turning point to set up for Royal […]

Return to Parts Unknown: A Farewell to the Ultimate Warrior

Rambunctious. Loose Cannon. Iconic. Whatever words you use to describe him, James Hellwig -better known as the Ultimate Warrior – was a larger than life personality both on and off camera.

Now, due to side ventures like WWE Studios, wrestlers have the ability to break out and become stars outside of the profession. Not all wrestlers have the acting […]

The Million-Dollar Interview: My 1-on-1 with Ted DiBiase

Over the July 4th weekend, I had the honor and privilege of sitting down with a man who could easily be considered one of the best heels in wrestling history, Ted DiBiase. What was originally slated as a 15-20 min interview grew seamlessly into a conversation that spanned over two hours about everything I could […]

Primitive Sounds For A Modern World, Let’s Get Depressed

Jonny Manak and his crew (well, rhythm section anyways) of Depressives have added another full-length into their ever-growing arsenal of Turbojugend-approved musical missives.
