5 Divas WWE Dropped The Ball on.
Tue, 07 Feb 2012 00:26:09 GMTAlright guys, It's Black Falcon once again with My newest Blog. On a side-note, I'm thinkin of gtting an official title for any future blogs, any ideas will be welcomed. Anywho, on to the main event:
Even though most of them are piss poor and can't put a match on, there's no doubt that the WWE Divas do have some genuine talents within their ranks. Beth Phoenix and Natalya instantly spring to mind, but others have shown some good improvement, including Layla and Eve, plus Kharma will hopefully returning soon. However there are a few people that WWE never gave a push too who actually deserved it. Here I list 5 Divas that WWE dropped the ball on. First some guidelines. I'm only listing Divas that:
Are currently released from the WWE and are either in different promotions or not wrestling.
Did not recieve a Women's or Diva's title reign in their time in the WWE.
Without further ado, here we go:
5. Maria Kanellis Attachment 1427
Granted Maria wasn't amazingly talented but she definitely had great potential. She also had great charisma and personality. While originally starting off as the ditzy interviewer, she certainly became more fierce in her time their. Now currently the 'First Lady of ROH', this could be the perfect year for the 'E to think about resigning her. Only time will tell.
4.Stacy Kiebler/Torrie Wilson Attachment 1428
This was tie because these girls had pretty much everything. They had the charisma, they had talent, and they were two of the sexiest women to ever enter the WWE. With Stacy's 41 inch legs and Torries flawless ass, these Divas had the perfect looks, and would have been great champions.
3. Katie Lea Burchill (AKA Winter) Attachment 1430
A truly underrated Diva, Katie Lea showed a massive improvement after her release. Being a Brit myself, I always had a soft spot for her and Paul, eve though she's originally from Germany before training in Britain. I'm gonna say right away that she's hot, and I loved the way she acted in ECW and on Raw. Now that she's a 2-time Knockout Championship and Knockout Tag champ over on TNA, she's really come into her own. If WWE ever managed to get her back, they'll have made a valuable purchase.
2. Gail Kim Attachment 1431
Now before anyone starts on me, I know that Gail had a Womens Title reign back in 2003. However, if current champion Jazz hadn't been injured, I'm not sure if she would have won. I'm also mainly focusing on her 2008-11 run. Gail one of the best female talents going in my honest opinion, yet she was kept out of the title pictur in favour of people like Alicia Fox and Eve Torres. After Gail quit she vowed never to return to WWE. I don't blame her, and think that the E lost a valuable player in the current TNA Knockouts Champion.
1. Ashley Massaro I'm gonna come right out and say it; Ashley has always been my favourite all-time diva. She's hot, she's talented, and I loved her character. She was the punk chick who didn't give a damn what you thought about her, and she managed to get straight into the roster without any former training.
Ashley parted ways with the WWE in order to look after her ill daughter in 2008. However she has since been performing at other events last year. I for one hope that WWE see sense and gives her a call. She has been training extensively since she left and I am confident she could come back better than she ever was. Here's hoping for a return and a championship run.
Anyway that's all from me tonight. Don't flame just cuz it's about Divas, I'm hopeful for a revival this year, Falcon out.
Fri, 13 Jan 2012 18:08:23 GMTHey guys BlackFalcon here once again. Tonight I decided to watch the first NXT of the year online. I had not watched a single episode from Series 3...Hey guys BlackFalcon here once again. Tonight I decided to watch the first NXT of the year online. I had not watched a single episode from Series 3 onwards. The matches were okay, I didn't really care much for the backstage storylines (although I laughed at the Reks/Hawkins v Tatsu/Baretta prank war, and their match was incredible), but one person made it all worthwhile. A returning William Regal on commentary who gave a stellar performance throughout.
I've always respected Regal, and not just because I'm a fellow Brit. He's a proper wrestler. He's seen it all, done it all, and has enjoyed it all. The first fact you need to face is this: Regal has been wrestling for nearly 30 years. He spent 10 years touring the world before he landed in America, and has been wrestling there ever since. He's a real veteran, although he has never got out of the midcard. Besides the big 2 (WWE/WHC) Regal's done nearly everything. He's been a 4-time Tag Champ, a 3-time Hardcore champ, a 4-time European champ, and a 2-time Intercontinental champ. He's a King of The Ring, which is a big accolade to have. He's also been the Raw GM, and he did an amazing job at it.
Another point is he's incredible on the mic. A true heel among heels, I honestly put William Regal at the top of the pile of great talkers. Another point is that he's been able to help so many superstars get a real start. If he Hadn't been working with "Umanga", would the guy have been pushed so much? If he hadn't headed up the Ruthless Roundtable on ECW, would Kozlov and Jackson had got title reigns this year? I somehow doubt it.
Now we move on to his work as a commentator. Watching this episode alon proves how good Regal really is. He knows what he's talking about, he knows every move, and he talks in great detail, which is perfect. He's also completely unbiased, which means he can call a match and not miss any importatant details because he goes off on tangents about the wrestlers (here's looking at you Cole)
So how could the WWE best utilise Regal? I say we put him as a third announcer on Raw. Cole and Lawler work good together, but they get so involved in their own conversations that the match ends up getting lost. The same thing happens between Cole and Booker on Smackdown, which is why they kept Josh Matthews there, in order to keep some focus on the match. I think if they bring Regal in to the Raw announce team, then the matches will have a lot more focus on them, instead of it being the Cole/Lawler fiasco it usually is.
This is BlackFalcon, saying that William Regal was a great competitor, is a great announcer, and will be a great Hall of Fame inductee some day. If they don't let him in, it will be a complete travesty in my mind.
BlackFalcon, signing off.

Wed, 21 Dec 2011 00:52:35 GMTHey guys, BlackFalcon here. Well with the New Year coming up, there is one thing on every wrestling fan's mind... The Royal Rumble is just around the corner. The best thing about the Rumble is that is so unexpected, Legendary returns, unexpected turns, and the fun of the eliminations. Another good thing is that there are so many people who deserve to win it, and you really think they could. So who in the roster has the best chance of winning? Here I go through some of the best candidates:
Dolph Ziggler: The man that backs-up everything he says, this guy is a legitimate star who puts on great matches week-in, week-out. With him losing the title to Ryder at TLC, He definitely has a great chance of being pushed up to the main title picture. If he didn't win, I would pick him to win Next Year's Money in the Bank instead, or maybe even get into The Elimination Chamber.
Big Show: Probably going to be in the WHC match, but if not he certainly deserves a win at the Rumble after all he's put in. He's been working his ass off since his return and deserves a title reign that's over a minute (Not taking anything away from Bryan, love him as champ)
Chris Jericho: Contrary to popular belief, and thanks in part to DX Wrestling Saviour's blog on this matter, I believe Jericho's return (if at all) will take place at the Rumble, rather than on 02/01/12. It makes more sense to return at a big PPV and get a win like Edge did, instead of at some obscure date. PLus this would be one of the few things he hasn't won in his career.
Christian: A stellar competitor who had a great summer feud with Orton. If anything he deserves One More Match, and this is the perfect way to get it.
Randy Orton: Home-Town favourite, nuff said. His Chrisian feud does back him up tho, and he has won before.
Sheamus: This guy has all the makings of a great returning champion. With two WWE Title runs already (Although I never cared for him much back then) Sheamus really deserve's a title shot a lot more than kicking Jobber Mahal's ass every week (thanks to R(ob) for that name)
Wade Barrett: In his first two years he has lead two imposing and successful stables, had a stellar feud with Both Orton and Cena, and this week he put Orton through a table. A win here would definitely be a step in the right direction for the Barrett Barrage
Kane: How the man with the record for most eliminations in one Rumble match, as well as one of the highest number of appearances, has not won yet is beyond me. However, with his masked return, Kane is definitely in with a good chance of winning this year, and he deserves to as well. If not, I can confidently predict that he will be in the Elimination Chamber.
Out of everyone on the list I would put Kane as my official pick to win the Rumble, although the others have a good chance as well.
And that's my list, feel free to leave comments and suggestions for who you want to win. This is BlackFalcon, signing off.
]]>BlackFalconhttp://forum.ewrestlingnews.com/entry.php?40136-Who-Will-Win-the-Royal-RumbleThe Biggest Comedian in WWE: Santino Marella
Tue, 04 Oct 2011 21:41:59 GMTHey guys, BlackFalcon here, and I just watched on Raw the return of the funniest guy ever to grace the WWE, one Santino Marella.
In my opinion,...Hey guys, BlackFalcon here, and I just watched on Raw the return of the funniest guy ever to grace the WWE, one Santino Marella.
In my opinion, Santino is the unsung hero of the 'E. If you think about it, with all the serious and over the top main event storylines in the last few years, who's the one guy who has always kept the comedy in the company. Who's the guy who will unselfishly job in order to push superstars in mid-card obscurity, who's always on hand to make you feel better if you're down. That's right, It's everyone favourite Italian-Canadian, Santino.
Granted he's been a joke ever since he started, but it's the simple fact that he does it in such good humour that makes me love him. I could never imagine him sulking and asking to be pushed like some people in his position might. He really has the 'entertainment' part of this thing down. So to honour the great man, I here submit what I feel is the top 5 Santino moments or sections.
No.5: Santino Owns Sheamus
Now the best thing about this is the simple fact that the most stereotypical guy on the roster is making fun of Irish stereotypes (Leprechauns, pale skin, etc.) While the British Tea Party with big Vlad was also good, I prefer this one just for the fact that as well as plugging his own accomplishments, he still knows how to sell a good punch.
No.4: The Honk-A-Meter/Champion of Planet Earth
Now one thing I always remember fondly is Santino's quest to become the greatest IC Champion 'of all times'. The Honk-A-Meter was always a hilarious gimmick, even though it only ran for 13 or so weeks. This time he appeared on Smackdown sticks out, not just for the random decimal, but for the fact that he exaggerates his title so much, but actually brings up a decent point about it. It also reminds of a time when Beth Phoenix didn't need 3 matches to win a championship and was as dominant as she deserves to be now.
No.3: Santino Sings Rehab
Santino has always been an amazing heel, and this just proves it. Not only is he using a great tune that was big on the charts back then, but he uses to slam the hardest SOB in the biz. Now granted Austin isn't that great of an actor (I watched the Expendables and actually preferred Dolph Lungdren WTH!?!) but Santino just took what we were thinking and put it in hilarious verse. RIP Amy, at least your songs brought great joy to the WWE Universe as well as the rest of the world.
No.2: Santino Rapping?
If one thing's funnier than Santino singing, it's Santino rapping. From the way he says 'Akorn', to the jaunty cap and finishing with "We're not even in a restaraunt... but you got served!" Santino just showcases the best he has to offer, and that is his hilarity.
No.1: Santino Impersonates Chris Jericho
Granted it's a shameless plug for WWE Merch and mainly focuses on DXSwoggle (And I admit the "HE'S GOT A BEARD!" is a funny line) Santion just makes this moment a complete classic. You don't even realize it's him until he turns round, and then you know it's going to be funny. I honestly couldn't breathe when he said "Hyprocrates" and the screams when Hornswoggle attacks are hilarious. This is without a doubt, Santino's funniest moment in WWE history.
Honourable Mentions Include...
- Santino's Casa (Need to bring that back it was a classic)
- Santina (Disturbing yet Hilarious)
- Copying Melina's entrance (Painful yet Hilarious)
-Impersonating Batista ("I shoot the lasers outta my arms, like I'm 8 years old!")
-Royal Rumble '08 and '09 (He beat the Warlord's record man, he should be proud)
This video is hilarious
All in All, Santino is officially the funniest man to ever appear in a WWE ring, and I would consider it a great travesty if he wasn't eventually put in the Hall of Fame for his services to Wrestling comedy.
Got your own fave Santino moment? disagree with my Top 5? post a comment and let me know. BlackFalcon out.

Only in its second year as a full PPV, The Money in The Bank match has taken mid-carders such as Jack Swagger and CM Punk and propelled them into big-time matches and Championship reigns.
Here I’ll be commenting on the confirmed championship matches, along with my predictions for who will be involved in the ladder matches.
Raw MITB Match Participant Predictions:
Kofi Kingston: Losing the Us Title may be the best thing to happen to Kofi. This could be the start of him finally getting a push to the WWE Title. He’s had some memorable MITB moments before, his ‘ladder stilts’ to name but one, and has always come close to winning before, making him a good choice.
John Morrison: How could you have a ladder match without Morrison? He has plenty of experience and some awesome moments to go with it. I believe they will use him to do the spectacular stunts now that they don’t have Shelton Benjamin anymore. I just hope he’ll be back from injury in time.
Evan Bourne: With his recent win streak over Swagger, It would be easy to see why Evan would be up for contention. I can’t see him winning it, but he will provide some entertaining moments. If not in the match, I have a feeling he’ll be getting a push for the US Championship
The Miz: With A-Ry most likely being pushed for a US title shot, Miz will most likely find his way back into this. With a win from last year, it’s unlikely he will win again. However if last year was anything to go by, he’ll make it memorable.
Chris Masters/Tyler Reks: Even though they haven’t been seen in the last few months, these guys have each made huge impacts on Superstars. They’ll fill the always present ‘fish out of water’ gap, being big powerhouses not used to being seen in ladder matches. However, with Chris’ strength and grappling skills, or Tyler’s wild unpredictability, they would both be good additions.
Alberto Del Rio: Having already won this year’s Royal Rumble, I doubt they will actually push Alberto for the win. However, we know he is a skilled wrestler, and does have ladder match experience. He will be most likely put in as someone to get pushed off the ladder so the crowd can get a happy moment.
Zack Ryder: The people’s new favourite, I wouldn’t be surprised if the WWE bigwigs didn’t add him just to make sure people watch it. He’s a spirited competitor, and definitely has the charisma for a future champ, if he gets in this match, he’ll be the one everyone will cheer for.
R-Truth/Rey Mysterio: These guys may just get in because they have nothing better to do. R-Truth has previous experience, and my personal favourite ladder match has always been Mysterio vs. Guerrero at SummerSlam, and they both have the skills to excel at this match.
Smackdown MITB Match Participant Predictions:
Trent Barreta: Smackdown has a lot more up and coming talent than Raw does, meaning we can count on guys with potential like Trent. He’s had a good run on Superstars, and I think he is deserving of a push.
Jinder Mahal/Sheamus: With Mark Henry and Kane most likely thrown into the Big Show fued which will most likely get a match as well, it falls to these guys to fill the ‘fish out of water’ role. Mahal’s been on a rampage really, which could set him up for it. However, as a former King of The Ring, with ladder experience, Sheamus would be a definite threat to contend with.
Johnny Curtis: I can’t see a cooler way for Johnny to debut than in a ladder match. He won NXT for a reason, and after all these promos I’m getting impatient for a big match to start his career. Let’s hope his skills match up to talk.
Daniel Bryan: A definite threat, however without a major ladder experience, Bryan might not be the choice. Then again he is a fan favourite as well as having a suitable skill set for the challenge.
Justin Gabriel/Heath Slater: Although good as a tag team, including one of these guys in the match would be good to let show what they can do on their own. Besides, who doesn’t want to see a 450 splash off a ladder?
Tyson Kidd: After he sorts out which pointless manager he’s going to pick (No offence to them because they are pretty awesome besides Vickie) Tyson should be able to pull off a good outing in this match. His technical knowhow and quickness make him a perfect choice in my opinion
Ted Debiase: With Rhodes most likely losing to Bryan in a qualifying match, this match could be used to let Ted distance himself and become his own man again. He is way too talented to be used like he is now so hopefully they’ll see sense and put him in.
Wade Barrett: I’m guessing that Sin Cara will have an IC title push which will leave Wade wide open to storm into this. With his ruthless fighting style and aggressive streak, Wade would be sure to use those ladders to maximum effect.
WWE Championship Match: John Cena vs. CM Punk
CM Punk’s final match in the WWE will definitely be one to remember. Always a great performer, as well as one of the greatest wrestlers to ever grab a microphone, I can’t think of a better place than at the PPV of the event that made him a champion. However I can’t help but feel that they will let him win the match just to screw him over like they did to Mysterio last year, by letting whoever won the Raw MITB cash in on him. Even if that does happen though, it will great to see CM Punk one last time.
World Heavyweight Championship Match:Randy Orton vs. Christian
Okay, I know his foot was outside the ropes, but Christian seriously needs to get over himself. Okay, so he pinned Orton on Raw, but that means nothing. I have nothing but respect for CHritians legacy from the Era of Awesomeness to his return and becoming ECW Champion, but this feud is just becoming boring. They might make it a ladder match to spice things up but otherwise just another boring Orton/Christian match.
And this is it for my first ever blog. The last thing I’m going to put is the match I want to see most:
Otunga and McGillicutty vs. Hawkins and Ryder vs. The Usos Triple Threat Tag Team Match for the WWE Tag Team Championships.
As long as someone besides Z-List and Mr. Not So Perfect wins I’m happy. Usos are finally getting the push they deserve and Ryder and Hawkins are always fun to watch.
Anyways hoped you like this.
Black Falcon signing off.
