It may surprise you to be told, but the internet hasn’t always been a John Cena fan. Six years ago, the hate train was full steam ahead in its desire to tie the Doctor of Thuganomics to the tracks and use his head as a speed bump…

Did you see that video with the WWE wrestlers answering questions about pop culture? John Cena sure loves Jersey Shore, and why wouldn’t he? Between himself and Snooki, the superfluous wretchedness of a big-chested meat face getting punched in the face is always going to appeal to the superfluous wretchedness of a big-chested meat face getting punched in the face.

If a man predicts the end of the world in 2012, he’s considered crazy and mercilessly ridiculed like the attention-seeking charlatan that he is. But what separates him from the loon who predicted that Bryan Danielson would one day be a world champion in the biggest wrestling promotion in the world, who foresaw a world with John Laurinitus as the number one heel on television, and who laid forth the peculiar notion that Michael Cole might one day suck at his job? Who would ever dare be so brave to put his reputation on the line with such prophecies?

For those who didn’t get to buy the Rise And Fall of ECW DVD, you were one of a very few. The DVD smashed records left, right and centre. So it was only fitting that WWE released a follow up entitled “Bloodsport: ECW’s Most Violent Matches”. Could it live up to the expectations? In a word: yes.

He’s the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be, and you’ll never forget it. Not because his matches back it up, but because he won’t shut up about it. Welcome to Ego 2006, the story of Bret “Hitman” Hart.

They’re smart, they’re sexy, and they’re scantily clad. They are the divas of the WWE, and Divas Uncovered takes you under the sheets to reveal the secrets of these extraordinary women… or so they want you to believe.

One of the most influential characters of his generation, his calculated movements and slow, deep, intellectual interviews have become legendary. But who knew that behind those promos laid a troubled soul with a dark past? This is the story of Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and this DVD looks candidly at the rise and fall of not only his wrestling career, but his real life addictions and problems, amongst all other things.

For the generation that grew up on late 80s to early 90s WWF, the name Ultimate Warrior brings a number of words to your mind: energy, fury, power, crazy, demented… wait, how did a man so big become a man so despised by his peers? This is the Self-Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior and boy, it is one hell of a DVD.

The WWE aren’t the most praised company of the moment right now. Every little thing they do seems to come under criticism and everyone from fans to network bosses want a piece of McMahon and co. Of every aspect of business, it seems that the only real bright spot is the DVD collection that the WWE is releasing, chronicling the careers of everyone from Rob Van Dam to the Road Warriors in tremendous fashion. So would this Undertaker DVD live up to the expectations?

Anyone who has followed the careers of Ric Flair or Mick Foley will know that these two aren’t the best of friends. In between their personal spats, they took the time to make derogatory remarks to each other in their books. Everyone knows that Mick Foley has not one but two New York Times bestsellers under his belt, and actually wrote the books himself. You’d think that with a life as interesting as Flair’s, you’d get something even more special. As it is, either Flair is a really poor writer, or his book was ghostwritten, and boy can you ever tell the difference.

Over the years, music in WW(F)E has changed dramatically. Some for the good, some for the bad. But all as big a part of wrestling growing up as anything else. So when WWE decided to put an entire collection of these songs together, I had to get it. Luckily, my caring boss had a copy and sent it to me, but on one condition: I had to review it. So was it worth it? The answer to that question is…

He’s a former ECW Tag Team and TV champion, a former WCW World, US, TV and Cruiserweight champion, and a former WW(F)E European, Intercontinental, Tag Team, Hardcore champion and a later unrecognised World Champion (thank HHH), as well as the first ever Undisputed Champion. He’s conquered wrestling, and now, he’s attempting to conquer the music industry too.

With the vast amount of reviews at Wrestling 101 based around videos or video games, I thought I’d add a little collection of music reviews from the world of wrestling. So far, I’ve looked at the offering of Chris Jericho’s ‘Fozzy’, and WWE Anthology, a collection of theme tunes over the past 15 years. But what happens when the WWE meets the world of hip-hop? Thats what we found out when WWE released “Aggression”.
