Month: March 2014

News in Review – March 2014

It’s the end of the month, so it’s about that time where I look back at the biggest stories in the world of wrestling during March. Hopefully you’re getting to grips with the format by now, but in case you haven’t seen this column before, I use three categories – “Inside The Ring” for what we see from the WWE on TV each week, “Outside The Ring”, for the backstage happenings/rumours in the WWE, and “In The Industry”, for everything else non-WWE related.

It was a bit of fun, with some wild guesses from out of nowhere, some wild guesses based on what storylines were like at the time, and some educated guesses. I thought it would only be right to go back and see how I did. Continue reading

News In Review: February 2014

It’s a new month again, and that can only mean one thing here at the Plebs of Wrestling – a nice, comprehensive round up of the biggest news stories from the last month! This feature debuted last month, and I’m keeping the same three categories to sort all the news items into Inside the Ring, Outside the Ring, and In the Industry. I think they’re all pretty self-explanatory, but if not you’ll get the idea soon enough. Anyway, by it’s very nature this is quite a big article, so let’s not waste any more time and get right into it! Continue reading
