Jonjo Shelvey is the EPL’s version of Ndamukong Suh

The opening weekend of the English Premier League came and went and the newly promoted Newcastle United fell 2-0 to Tottenham. This was the expected outcome by many accounts as the Spurs have a superb squad with large expectations. In the 49th minute, however, Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey let his anger get the best of him as he decided to stomp on the downed opponent. (video below) An obvious red card was given forcing the Magpies to play down a man in a tie game. The two goals that followed are the immediate product of playing down a man. As a...

Who Will be Paul Heyman’s Next Client?

WWE fans can essentially set their watches every year and  half to the notion of Brock Lesnar contemplating leaving the business. The rumors are back in action once again leaving WWE fans with many questions. My greatest concern is, what is to become of arguably the best part of RAW, Paul Heyman?

This is very out of character for the WWE as they have often saved the title matches for PPV events. On Smackdown last night, the WWE Universe saw 3 of its top talents (Cena, Rusev, and Kevin Owens) all vying to get a chance at AJ’s new hardware. Currently, there is only one contender for the WWE championship belt, Randy Orton. This begs the question of which belt...

Samoa Joe v. Brock Lesnar Proves that Less is More

Despite the awful name, WWE’s Great Balls of Fire PPV was a huge hit. No single match sticks out as a bust and all the storylines were executed to perfection. I was truly surprised by the Roman Reigns attempted murder heel-turn and how throwback that was to the Stone Cold days. Despite differing opinions, the match of the night has to go to Brock Lesnar v. Samoa Joe and the following are a few reasons why. Time Constraints As the Roman Reigns v. Braun Stroman ambulance match took a fearful turn, the WWE universe saw itself looking at the...
