WWE.com — Houses of WWE: ‘Game of Thrones’-style Superstar crests

“Winter is coming, WWE Universe. And let’s face it, with the characters on “Game of Thrones” dropping like flies each passing week, the folks in Westeros could use a few more lords and ladies to fill out their ranks. Well, have no fear, House Lannister et. al, WWE.com has you covered. In fact, here are 15 WWE Superstars and Divas who would be right at home alongside The Imp, The Kingslayer and The Mother of Dragons in the do-or-die world that George R.R. Martin built.”

WWE.com — Editors’ Choice: Who will win the 2015 Royal Rumble Match?

“Every January, 30 of WWE’s toughest Superstars throw their hat in the ring for the biggest opportunity in sports-entertainment — a chance to main event WrestleMania. The Royal Rumble Match is a test of endurance, smarts and pure will. Each entrant has to dig deep and pull out all stops to avoid being thrown over the top rope and having both feet touch the arena floor.

The field for this year’s over-the-top-rope melee is wide open, with numerous Superstars looking to break through to The Grandest Stage of Them All. Who has the best shot of making their Show of Shows dream become reality? See which competitors WWE.com’s editors think have the best chance in our Royal Rumble Match predictions, presented by Hulu!”

WWE.com — WWE.com’s Top 25 Matches of 2014

“Whew, 2014, right? What a year it’s been: There were New Days, Uso craziness, Boo-tista, Bluetista,green Stardusts, Eras of Vacancy, good news, bad news (and Bad News), stunt doubles, evil twins and a vanishing Cody Rhodes (seriously, where’d that guy go?). Raw was occupied, Streaks were broken, Hulkamania ran wild, vigilantes dispensed justice, Kings of Swing were crowned and a full-fledged takeover ran rampant down in Full Sail University. And here we are now, when all the eating, sleeping and conquering has repeated itself to the last day of December, to bury and to celebrate 2014 in extravagant fashion.

No WWE fan needs to be reminded of the bar that in-ring competition set for itself this past year, but with so many classic matches in a single 12-month span, the question begs: Which was the best? WWE.com editors convened to select the cream of the crop (#Madness) and count down the year’s 25 best contests. Here’s how we did it: Several editors convened to select the matches, each of us ranked them on our own and consolidated them into a collective ranking depending on how each match was scored by all the editors. The process was arduous, contentious, and a steel chair may have been wielded at some point, but it was as democratic and collaborative as we get for this annual process. So pull up a chair and relive a hell of a year in WWE competition, presented by Foot Locker, and see what made our No. 1 spot. See you in 2015.”

WWE.com — 10 Superstars who would have been perfect for The Attitude Era

“Ahh, The Attitude Era. Sword-wielding Japanese stables, men in towels, Sexual Chocolate, exploding buses and Rock Bottoms into plates of dog poop. Those were the times. What made WWE’s most infamous era truly must-see television, however, wasn’t the wild, week-to-week stunts that pushed the limits of durability and decency alike, but the unmatched cadre of characters that perpetuated these preposterous acts.

The envelope-pushing has long since subsided to something more palatable (you won’t see anybody giving birth to a hand these days), but the wild personalities have never really gone away, have they? There are plenty of competitors in today’s WWE who are as colorful and provocative as the stars of The Attitude Era, and who would not only have succeeded in that boom period, but thrived alongside the likes of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, D-Generation X and Ministry-era Undertaker. Who are these stars out of time? Well, how about these guys and gals …”
