The other guys are a lot better writers than I am. There's a lot of lists, but you'll still see them raise some really interesting points.

For instance, one of my favorites was from Tom's piece about 8 Reasons Bray Wyatt Will Fail After WM30 #6:
Bray Wyatt cuts a great promo. He leads men into battle and they listen to every word he says. He watches intently ringside, invested in every move and movement his “Family” makes. He celebrates when they win; he scolds them when they lose. Now replace “Bray Wyatt” with Bobby Heenan and the last few sentences still read the same.
And yes, they're paid by the click so that's why you'll see people work on click-bait pieces like WWE: 10 Sexiest Diva Moments In WrestleMania History and they feel no shame for that. Nor should they.

Lastly, Pete Thornton has been getting lots of people agitated with his non-pro wrestling pieces including 10 Superheroes Who Should Get A Movie Before Wonder Woman and 10 Reasons Frozen Is Definitely NOT Disney’s Best Animated Movie This Decade. That's kind of his MO in life, so I am very amused.
In other news, I've got a new piece that should go live on WhatCulture in the next 24 hours:
  • What SIX jobs does WWE need to create?
My WC editor has it now and are trying to strangle it into comprehensible English.

Also, a NEW EPISODE OF WRESTLENOMICS RADIO is available.  It's two hours long and we talk about some original WWE Rookie analysis I completed, WWE TV negotiations (including newcomer WGN), thoughts on the Royal Rumble & Elimination Chamber 2014 PPV numbers and a list of who has most of the worst pro-wrestling feuds of the last twenty years.  Also, we have live callers from around the world (literally).  Next live episode of Wrestlenomics radio will be this Saturday (3/29/14) at 1 PM EST/Noon CST with special guest David Bixenspan talking about Discrimination Lawsuits, Ultimate Warrior shenanigans, WCW Payroll and much more!
