Bray Wyatt’s New Character Is A Breath of Fresh Air

A startling revelation that came to me, a new and unique idea is genuinely hard to come by. Okay, this is a strange topic for a geek website, but hear me out. It relates to your favourite video games, TV series, films, books and stories of all kinds. When you flick through available content, a lot of stories are similar, albeit with a different cast. This Monday, I saw something that was genuinely new – And that made me and fans exceptionally happy.

Thoughts on NXT TakeOver: New York

NXT TakeOver is the biggest show for the developmental branch of WWE. It’s known as one of the most exciting brands in all professional wrestling and it’s a crying shame that every show isn’t quite up to the callibre of NXT, however then we would be spoilt for choice. This past Friday night, NXT TakeOver put out an incredible show, which is just what the exciting brand keeps on giving. With five titles up for grabs, there was a buzz about this show and the results of the show were, largely, quite exciting. So, since I mentioned on Friday that this weekend is WrestleMania weekend, here’s a quick summary of NXT TakeOver: New York, as well as my thoughts about the results.

Pro Wrestling and YouTube

The longer title of this article was going to be ‘Pro Wrestling and YouTube: A Look At How YouTube Has Helped All Wrestling Promotions, Large And Small’ – And then I realised how ridiculously long that title was. Pro Wrestling is definitely an interest of mine, as many of you will be aware. With the Royal Rumble coming up at the end of the month, I thought I’d do one of my usual rare talks about how ridiculous a show can be – But instead of focusing purely on WWE, I thought that it might be interesting to talk about how YouTube has played such a massive role in helping with what is effectively a boom of interest.

Making A Game Of Your Fitness

Alright, admittedly, anyone who’s ever seen a picture of me will be aware that I’m quite a chunky person. I’ve always been pretty big, but recently I’ve gotten to a point where I’ve decided that I’ve had enough of it. Whilst I could be like everyone else, by heading to a gym and just working out non-stop for ages, I figured I’d want to start it off a bit simpler – Get myself back into the spirit of good health. Naturally, food becomes a part of a health kick, but overall, I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t get bored. This is my routine – and how you can kickstart your own health spree – If you’re looking to lose a few pounds!

To catch you up with what happened, here’s my rundown of how SummerSlam 2018 went down.

WrestleMania 34: The Stories Behind the Show

Pro Wrestling is weird; It’s filled with people from all walks of life, with varying strange personalities. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a huge fan of it – From the grandiose belts (sorry, titles), to the incredibly exaggerated characters, wrestling has kept me hugely entertained for many years now. Today is a big day for these grapplers – Today is the biggest Pay Per View on the wrestling calendar. Today is WrestleMania 34!
