In December 2007, Colin Delaney made his debut for World Wrestling Entertainment in a losing effort against Shelton Benjamin. For roughly the next eight months, Delaney competed on the ECW brand and would regularly lose to guys like Great Khali, Miz, John Morrison and others. By the summer of 2008, Delaney would turn heel and cost Tommy Dreamer the ECW Championship, but wouldn’t be pushed heavily and was released by the WWE in August of 2008.
I’m sure many people forgot all about that and never think about it, which is understandable. There may be people reading this today that have no idea who the hell Colin Delaney is.

The titles were vacated because Rick suffered an injury and he would return to action on March 1st 1999 but before long he would have singles gold for most of the year. Continue reading
WrestleMania VIII is one of the first WrestleMania’s that I ever watched. I actually bought the VHS tape from a Media Play back in late 2000 largely because of the cover of the VHS promoting a Hogan/Sid, and Flair/Savage contest. This was right around the time that the four guys were still being heavily featured on World Championship Wrestling programming.
The event has always has a favorable memory whenever I think about it and I continue to enjoy the show whenever I check it out. Continue reading
