Off The MainStream: 4th

February 26, 2008

Gorgeous Smackdown’s Diva, Victoria have recently ventured into custom car making. At a tender age, she’s has been avid about driving and cars. She has recently made this announcement on her blog, which have been updated here at WrestlingMAT

It must be nice to be able to sit at home, receive hefty WWE paycheck without doing anything – and that’s what Bobby Lashley is getting now. As part of the agreement on his release, WWE has agreed to pay Bobby Lashley his full contract until the end of May. In exchange, Bobby Lashley will not be allowed to jump to TNA during this period of time.

Well apparently, when you type in “Steroids” on Google.com, a photo of Batista is the first thing that show up. Ahem.

The Great Khali’s translator/manager, Ranjin Singh, is going to be off television for some time. Singh sustained a fractured patella after he was kicked from the entrance of the Elimination Chamber to the ground by Undertaker at No Way Out, this past Sunday. No word have been confirmed whether his character will be written off the storylines.

WWE’s internet marketing department have been rather aggressive lately. WWE now has official accounts on YouTube, Flickr and Facebook. You can see their YouTube page here, Flickr here and Facebook here. They’re branding their pages as the “WWE Fan Nation.” Quite a good move to engage the fans around the world.

Marty Jannetty was among the many wrestling names at the recent WrestleSlam UK convention. Jannetty stated to the press that nowadays people in WWE are being brought up way too soon and put into positions they’re not ready for. Jannetty used Mr Kennedy as an example. Furthermore, Jannetty stated that Shawn Michaels backs up his claim on Kennedy whenever the two talk. Kennedy is also rather unpopular among most of the senior wrestlers.

MVP’s reign as the United States Champion have recently crossed 282 days mark. This segment him as one of the 5 longest reigning U.S Champion, beating notable names such as Ric Flair, Chris Benoit, Sting and Stone Cold. By far, he is the longest reigning US champion of his generation. *Applaud*

Right now the news are hot with Divas on WWE/Playboy. A while back, “CW11 News” in New York City did a segment where they interviewed 3 Hooters girls who had previously posed for Playboy. One of the girls, Beverly Mullins, mentioned that she will be heading to WWE. You can view the video segment here. Mullins is not the only Playboy model under a WWE developmental contract right now, former Diva Search contestant and Playboy model, Taryn Terrell is also in. I’ve updated her blog here at WrestlingMAT

WrestlingMAT Speaks Out & More!

February 6, 2008

As we are ushering into a new CNY and the recent “Get You Talking Campaign” launched, WrestlingMAT sat down with our founder, Scott.TA and get him talking about the upcoming Wrestlemania 24, as well as his new publicity manager and more!

So Scott, tell us us more about yourself: I am a broadcast mass media student in Singapore. I’ve been watching wrestling ever since I was 7, and it has been almost 13 years now. I love wrestling because of its unique entertaining style; it is something so violent perceived by others but yet when you immersed with it, it’s so addictive.

What’s your views on the current wrestling business: (thinking really hard) I think we passed the prime of wrestling but we might be reaching another. WWE has been so powerful that it almost stomped any mainstream competitors. In business view, the monopoly company is sure good for itself while in our consumer view, definitely, it driven out creativity and excitement.

Alright, let’s cut down straight, why made you want to set up WrestlingMAT:
I always wanted to have a say in wrestling. My distant dream is to be a creative writer for the company and/or commentator. In Singapore, when you said that to anyone, the likely response you will get is (laughs) “Get REAL kid!”

So how far has WrestlingMAT gone: Setting up this site has been awesome. We have good responses, faithful viewers who dropped by everyday. I would like to thank them personally. I can said that setting up this site has been time consuming, most of my free time has been drained out. But then, it’s what i like no no it’s what I love to do. I remember a couple of weeks ago, I was hosptialized and WrestlingMAT have to put on hold. The only thing that was going through my mind was, damm i need to be back for them.

Was there any part of you that admire any wrestlers: When I started as a kid, Shawn Michael has been my favorite. I remember his classic ladder match and the night when his boyhood dream has came through. And came the great one, The Rock. He was simply electrifying. He was so entertaining that I hardly remember anyone who had surpassed him. Currently, my pick would be Taker. I have a lot of respect for him. It was a gradually thing that made me come to realisation that this man is not just a deadman. This man is loyal, smart and dedicated.

Now the attention, let’s talk about your new publicity manager: Well~ it is my pleasure to announce a new member to our team, his name is JH and he has been a close friend of mine. We are expanding so it’s good.

So what’s to come for WM: With JH around, we will then look at the picture and see how far we can grab audience here. Next week, we will be doing a Valentine Specials which is something i find it really interesting. Also, to celebrate the CNY, today we will be dropping a big bombshell to our viewers tonight. So be sure to come back in hours time.

Enough of WM, let’s talk about Wrestlemania: Hmm.. i don’t think this Wrestlemania would surpass some of my favorite ones. I would said things are getting monotonous. We have really great potential storylines but we are not heading there. No one actually contemplated a Batista/Cena match which is quite sad. To run JBL and Y2J for so long really burnt the anticipation in us.

What about TNA: I am not a fan of TNA yet but I love what they are doing and where they are heading. TNA Vs WWE should be coming. I am actually rooting for TNA to knock some sense in WWE.

Closing Thoughts: If you are smelllllllllllllll~what (laugh) (laugh) (laugh) Hahahaha!

The Star Award: January In Review

February 2, 2008

Welcome to the first ever January In Review of The Star Award. . I have to say, the past month was really amazing. It was the start of WrestlingMAT as well as great storylines from the world of wrestling. We looked back to various highlights and have constantly been penning our nominees.

Man Of The Month: Jeff Hardy
Cena’s return definitely worth some marks but Jeff continuous hard work on his skills, his crowd reaction and his speech won him the prestigious award. We contemplated Triple H and we all concluded that he was just too overrated.

 

Match Of Month The 21st Royal Rumble Match
This year Royal Rumble was amazing. It came to us as a surprise with the amount of humor and crowd reaction for the match, and also how it was so well-planned. A few nominees include Triple H Vs Ric Flair and Jeff Vs Umaga Steel Cage match.

 

Moment Of Month: John Cena Won The Royal Rumble
We booked Jeff Hardy’s death defying leap from the titantron as the winner until when we are all shocked over Cena’s return. It came so close for these two.

 

Diva Of The Month: Michelle McCool
Chuck’s Gf, Michelle McCool angle was interesting. Tug and tassel over every week on Smackdown has made Michelle McCool fame goes way up. We gave some sympathy marks as well for her injury. We contemplated over Beth Phoenix , but she was not given enough air time.

 

Feud Of The Month Jeff Hardy Vs Randy Orton
One of the few notable feud this month, was Jeff Vs Orton. JBL/Jericho was too monotonous which each week bashing each other over the mic. Edge/Mysterio seems cool until the story evolved more on Edge/Punk. Jeff and Orton feud was nicely built up and came with an eventful close. Chavo/Punk was way off.

 

News Of The Month: Bobby Lashley Departure
The shocker of this month. Bobby Lashley departure rose immediately to the top, beating several other news such as Ron Killings/Big show return. Bobby has always been a pleasant wrestler, it came to us as an unaware blow, topping 3 posts in just one week

 

Tag Team Of The Month: Jimmy Wang Yang/Shannon Moore
We love to watch this tag team in action. They have the momentum, and each week they just get better and better. It is a pity that WWE Tag Team title was not on their waist. DX was on the list but they are just too irregular.

And here we go! The Star Winners for January!
