WWE.com — 8 Superstar reality shows we want to see

“’Tough Enough’ is returning to USA Network,’Total Divas’ is about to conclude its third season on E! and WWE Network introduced the WWE Universe to ‘Legends’ House’ last year. With all this success, WWE is carving a nice niche for itself in reality television.

This got those of us at WWE.com thinking: What else could WWE come up with to expand its standing within the popular TV genre? If you guessed intellectual competitions with Erick Rowan, boardroom battles for that elusive brass ring and an undercover chairman, then you’re on the right track.

Behold, the eight Superstar reality shows we want to see.”

WWE.com — WWE Fastlane 2015 predictions

“As WWE races toward WrestleMania 31, no event before The Show of Shows holds as much intrigue or importance as WWE Fastlane, which airs live Sunday on WWE Network.

The fabric of WrestleMania’s WWE World Heavyweight Title main event will be determined when Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan joust for the top-contender spot. Also at WWE Fastlane, four titles will be defended, brothers will duke it out and three of WWE’s most popular Superstars will take aim at The Authority’s handpicked wrecking crew.

But who will win? Check out these WWE Fastlane predictions by WWE Hall of Fame announcer Howard Finkel, “The Voice of Extreme” Joey Styles and WWE.com editors, and add your own in the comments section below.”

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 …”
