Recently, I came across some news that Jimmy Rave would be making his debut for Absolute Intense Wrestling on April 8th, 2017. For the last several years, Rave hadn’t been getting a lot of attention working mostly independents in the Carolinas & Georgia area. In 2015, Rave was signed on with Global Force Wrestling, which has yet to really take off. After scrolling through Twitter, I saw several fans praise the decision to bring in Rave to AIW. It showed me that people hadn’t forgotten about him. Read more

Bobby Roode made his debut in Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling way back in May 2004 as part of the heel stable Team Canada. For almost three years, Roode remained one of the top performers for the group winning the tag team championships on several occasions with partner Eric Young. Once Team Canada went their separate ways, Roode ventured off into singles wrestling competing in feuds with the likes of Eric Young, Petey Williams, Samoa and Jeff Jarrett throughout 2007.
By the time 2008 came around Roode was involved in a feud with Booker T involving Booker’s wife Sharmel. While Roode wouldn’t win the feud, he did defeat Booker at Destination X that year and competed in the King of the Mountain match, but was unable to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

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. If that’s the case, well, it is time you know just what Colin Delaney is all about and what you’ve missed. Read more

In professional sports, when an athlete reaches the age of 45, they are most likely retired or barely hanging onto a career that has long passed by them. Sometimes an athlete just doesn’t know when to let go.
But, then there are cases when an athlete has amazing longevity and surprises all their doubters. That’s exactly what Jerry Lynn did in 2009. Read more
