Breaking Down & Predicting The World Tag League 2019
As the year in pro wrestling winds down, that means we get the final annual tournament from New Japan Pro Wrestling in World Tag League. Last year’s outing for this tournament was very lackluster, so hopefully this year will be better. We have a few interesting pairings, a trio of two time World Tag League winners, and the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions in the tournament. One of the very few flaws that New Japan has right now is the fact that they don’t focus on their heavyweight tag team scene a lot, as there is only about four or five teams that are seen as legitimate threats in the division. Maybe that can change this year and we see some new partnerships made and kept for the road to come. The winners get an IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship match at Wrestle Kingdom 14, so there is a lot on the line for the 15 teams in the field that aren’t the champions. Let’s jump right in and see who I think will be raising those trophies high at the end of the tournament and getting the match at Wrestle Kingdom.
Superstars That Could Go To NXT
With NXT going to TV, it is going to be a rather interesting development and it’ll be interesting to see how the brand develops with the changes that it will be making. While transitioning from a one hour taped show to a two hour live show is not that big of a change for the competitors, it will be a big change for a bit of a smaller roster. I think that the roster is super talented, but their isn’t a ton of established main event or midcard wrestlers on the roster. You know where there is a bunch of established wrestlers that are severely underutilized? The Raw and Smackdown rosters.
Breaking Down & Predicting The G1 Climax 28
It’s time for one of, if not the biggest singles tournament in the pro wrestling year, the G1 Climax. This year is the 29th edition of the tournament, and it stacked from top to bottom with talent. You have multiple former tournament winners, former IWGP Heavyweight Champions, former finalists, and many things in between. This year's tournament features the return of a former tournament regular in Lance Archer, and a lot of tournament debuts. The likes of Taichi, Jeff Cobb, Will Ospreay, KENTA (fka Hideo Itami), and Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose).
Meet The AEW Roster
With Double or Nothing happening on Saturday, I figured it would be a great idea to take a look at the wrestlers that have signed with All Elite Wrestling. A new company is always nice to see, but one of this magnitude has not been seen since the days of WCW. Will AEW challenge WWE? Yes. Will they run WWE out of business? Not a chance. Will they push WWE, and Raw specifically, to be better? Absolutely. Wrestling fans around the world will be the winners, as we will see a great product from AEW, and a rejuvenated WWE with a new challenger to their wrestling throne. So who exactly was considered all elite for this company? I could just talk about Cody, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks and Chris Jericho with their high up spots in the company, but let's take a look at some of the other names in the company, and some names that you may not have heard of before. Maybe help you find some new favorite wrestlers. While we all know the Bucks, Omega, Jericho and Cody, let's meet the rest of the roster.
Predicting and Breaking Down The Best of The Super Juniors 26
Now that all the pomp and circumstance of Wrestlemania weekend is over, its onto the long summer campaign for wrestling. One of the best things in the summer months for wrestling fans is one of the most famous tournament in pro wrestling, from our good friends in New Japan Pro Wrestling, the Best of the Super Juniors.
Predicting and Breaking Down The Super Strong Style 16 Tournament
Progress Wrestling is one of the best independent wrestling companies in the world. You look at their all time wrestlers roster, it reads as a who’s who of recent wrestling history. Names like Marty Scurll, Will Ospreay, El Ligero, Jimmy Havoc, Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, Toni Storm and Travis Banks have all been with the company for so long, and have helped shape the company to what it is today. Since its creation, Progress has become a promotion that is more and more talked about. Since partnering with WWE, more and more people seem to be taking notice to this promotion, and it is well worth the watch.
Ben Hercik & Tokens Hopes for WWE in 2019-2020
While we approach the big show this weekend, we are also nearing the end of the wrestling year. In the weeks following, you have new names coming up from NXT, as well as people moving shows from Raw to Smackdown and vice versa. You see all these names in new places and the potential new rivalries. With allo of these things coming up, Ben Hercik and Token decided to sit down and talk about what they want to see for the 2019-2020 year in the WWE.
Predicting The Post Wrestlemania Call-Ups
It is that time of year again, Wrestlemania week! This is one of the best weeks to be a fan of pro wrestling, as you have multiple shows from multiple promotions. This weekend, we have three huge shows back to back to back on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. NXT Takeover Blacklist, Ring of Honors’ Supercard of Honor, and obviously, Wrestlemania 35 itself. As great as that weekend lineup is, one of the more excitable portions of the week happens the two days after Wrestlemania, the NXT Call ups. Some call ups have panned out amazingly, with the best examples coming to mind being Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. Others flopped miserably, like Enzo and Cass.
10 Wrestling Matches You Need To See
Wrestling has been around for years now and there’s been highs and lows but today we’re talking about the highs. Today we’re talking about the 10 Matches you need to see and it’s not just one man doing it, it’s: Ben Hercik, Ben Mawson, David Ayres and Token.
Predicting The Matches For NXT Takeover Brooklyn 5
We are officially on the Road to Wrestlemania! This is a fun time of year, and with it we see the end of some stories and the begining of new stories. This year, it is tough to predict the actual matches for Takeover, as you will see, a lot of the usual big names are all used very late or being called up after the show. But I have tried to put together a respectable Takeover card for the Friday before Wrestlemania. So without further adieu, here is my card for Takeover Brooklyn 5.
WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Predictions
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Men are being thrown over the top rope, opportunities are being made for Wrestlemania, returns are made and it’s just a big PPV of banter. Ben Hercik is defending his All Things Combat Predictions championship against Impact Recaper and the Irish Warrior, David Ayres and Josh. He doesn’t have a nickname.
Wrestle Kingdom 13 Predictions
It is time for one of my favorite events of the year, Wrestle Kingdom. I am like one of many newer New Japan fans, only really getting into NJPW when I first watched Omega vs Okada 1. I did take the time to watch a lot of older shows. I got to witness my first Best of the Super Juniors and G1 Climax this year. In this years Wrestle Kingdom, there is the lingering question surrounding the members of The Elite. They announced that they will be starting up All Elite Wrestling, and their is still a ton of questions to ask, the main one for me is will the promotion have a working relationship with New Japan, like Ring of Honor does. But that’s the future, lets start to look at the event at hand, Wrestle Kingdom 13. There is a lot to look forward to on this card. You have good wrestlers, great matchups, and New Japan doing something great for one of the companies that they work with. Revolution Pro Wrestling is being represented with Tomohiro Ishii defending that companies Heavyweight Championship on the show against Zack Sabre Jr. You have names like Kenny Omega, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Will Ospreay, Kazuchika Okada, Chris Jericho, Jay White, Tetsuya Naito, and so many more on just one card. I am really excited for this show so let's jump right into it.
Top 10 Women Wrestlers Of 2018
2018 was a great year for women’s wrestling. You had women main eventing main roster TV shows, main eventing pay per views, and even WWE having their first ever Women’s only pay per view. Promotions like Stardom, Shimmer, and Sendai Girls Pro Wrestling put on steller shows with only female talents. I think that women’s wrestling is one of the most fun things to watch now, considering where WWE and Impacts’ women’s division (the only wrestling with tv deals in the US) was just a few years ago. Narrowing down the top 10 was a tough task, but I think this is the best possible list for 2018.
Top 5 Disappointments Of 2018
What a great year for professional wrestling it was in 2018. We had phenomenal matches, wrestlers making names for themselves, and some great events. This year might have been one of the best years of professional wrestling in a little while. However, with all the good there is also the bad. There was some poor performances, and bad moments. Thinking of 5 of the most disappointing things from this year was harder than I thought it was going to be. There was very little that was bad, but I think that I found the 5 that I think are the most disappointing of 2018.
Predicting NXT Call Ups For RAW
We are slowly approaching the time of year folks. The post Wrestlemania call ups. While their are some that many of us expect, but let’s face it, NXT is a whole lot better than the main roster right now. So let's look at which members of the NXT Roster would do well with a call up to Monday Night RAW.
Are WWE Trying To Recreate The Attitude Era?
A little while ago, I put out a tweet during Survivor Series after Charlotte Flair attacked Ronda Rousey wondering if the WWE is indirectly trying to recreate the Attitude Era. A lot of people liked the idea so I started to dig and I found a lot of examples. Now are these one for one examples, meaning that they are exactly the same, no. But some of the attributes are tough to miss. This is going to be a long one, so let's dive right in.
NXT Takeover: Wargames 2 Predictions
NXT Takeover is tomorrow and the card is looking fantastically there’s only 4 matches compared to the standard 5 but hopefully that just means these matches get more time. The All Things Combat Wrestling prediction champion doesn’t defend his belt at Takeover but he’s still here with his predictions.
How WWE Could’ve Booked Evolution
Evolution just happened, and overall it was a great time. We had the nostalgia factor, great heel work, a lot of face wins, and mostly great matches. The only issue is that the card could’ve been so much better than what we ended up getting. That’s not to say that the final product we got was bad, but it could’ve been better. A few more matches, a lot more build, and a new title would have made the card a lot better than we got.
WWE Evolution 2018 Predictions
Evolution is tomorrow night, WWE’s first ever all women’s card and the card is good. The build is another situation entirely with WWE seemingly more focusing on Crown Jewel which is on Friday. It felt like WWE forgot about this PPV which in turn made other people forget about this PPV. David Ayres defends his title for the first time ever and former champion Ben Hercik takes his rematch. Will David Ayres be a transitional champion or will his reign last in memory?

Revisiting The WrestleKingdom 13 Card
First thing first, yes this is a long card, but if Wrestlemania can be 67,438 hours long and have 14 matches, then Wrestle Kingdom 13 can have a 13 match long card. The original article was posted on July 4th, and its been 3 months and we are just over 3 months out from the event. After recent events, many of the matches have changed, with only one main card match being the same as last time. So let’s look at my updated Wrestle Kingdom 13 card predictions.

Hell In A Cell 2018 Predictions
The predictions title is now vacant as the reigning champion, Ben Mawson failed to correct the most predictions while Ben Hercik and Jack drew with the most so therefore they will be fighting tonight for the vacant belt, who will win; The Cleveland Killer, Ben Hercik or Jack. Jack is a former All Things Combat Wrestling Champion while Ben Hercik has failed to win the gold but will tonight be the night where Hercik brings the gold back to Cleveland?
