Wrestlemania! The Grandest Stage of Them All!. Will it be KofiMania!? Some of us here at One Fall think so, one of us does not. In this episode we give our thoughts on the story lines coming into Mania, who we think is going to win as well as our thoughts on the hall of fame class and NXT Takeover.
One Fall! returns with a discussion of The Viper, Randy Orton. Focusing on what was presented in the WWE documentary Evolution of a Predator, we talk about Randy’s path from headstrong, arrogant, raw young talent to the established superstar he is today. Oddly, as accomplished as Orton is, it might be possible that he was underused, and certainly is being underused currently by WWE creative. Orton is simply one of the best, if not the best heel’s the company has today. He also is among the most talented in ring workers and is skilled on the mic. Yet somehow, if we discuss the 5 or even 10 WWE superstars, most people aren’t getting to Randy Orton today, because somehow he is being used almost as enhancement talent. Maybe with a big new contract that will change and will be used correctly, as he should be, at the head of a heel faction.
After a long hiatus One Fall is relaunching. Things will be a little different but it is still us and our style. This week we discuss AEW and the positive impact this will have on a stagnate WWE. Scott advances a theory that Stephanie McMahon is to blame for the PG era and Hollywood writers. We also look ahead to some possible Wrestlemania scenarios with Becky, Charlotte and Ronda. We also mix in a discussion of who the best technical male and female wrestler’s are.
Looking ahead we plan to mix in more wrestling related movie and documentary reviews, as well as retrospectives on past pay per views from bygone era’s as well discussions of individual wrestlers careers, standout events or matches and more darker and crazier things like The Kevin Sullivan Conspiracy, which explores the crazy theory that Kevin Sullivan was involved in the Benoit family tragedy.
It’s One Fall 2.0 - a lot will be the same, but eventually much will be different. Like all things version 2.0 will take a minute to find its final form, and as we introduce changes it may sound more similar than different, but in the end a more diverse show is coming - we hope you will be along for the ride
This week on One Fall! after a recap of Raw and Smackdown we dive deep into the conspiracy theory that Kevin Sullivan committed the horrific murder of Chris Benoit's family and murdered Benoit. We systematically debunk this nonsense. A tragedy occurred. It was committed by Chris Benoit. The WWE should have been doing more then with the mental health of its athletes and it should be doing more today.
We move from Benoit to CM Punk winning his court case and being cleared of defamation of character. This opens up a broader discussion of concussions in sports and what should or should not be done about it.
The newest podcast at RavingLunaticMedia.com has arrived. Given that T.J. and Scott have talked about wrestling for years on their sports shows they decided to add a third voice, Brian, to the mix and start a pro wrestling podcast. This weeks topic are the women's Royal Rumble, Rowdy Ronda Rousey, the impending A.J. Styles/Shinuske, matchup Brock/Braun and what is Brock's future, and what would your dream WWE match be.
