Two brothers, Peter A and Smiley Arriaga discussing the world of professional wrestling.

    We Have To Talk About WWE

    We Have To Talk About WWE

    Returning from our apathetic nap, The Wrestling Caucus is back to discuss whether or not to talk WWE on this show unless theres a Dwayne Johnson level angle that takes place. Why? World Wrestling Entertainment is void of any wrestling logic and has not been very entertaining as of late. Dolls, zombies, a minority of compelling characters and a complete lack of cohesive storytelling have made it impossible to watch this promotion from a week to week basis. We also give our thoughts from attending both AEW Dynamite shows in the tri-state area at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ and at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, NY.

    Interviewers! Are Now

    Interviewers! Are Now

    This week on The Wrestling Caucus, myself (Peter A) and smileyarriaga talk interviewers in wrestling. What about them you say? Well, smiley was annoyed seeing how interviewers were portrayed on TV. He has a point because in WWE, interviewers can come across as robotic tools with no credibility or personality. In AEW, some of their more credible interviewers are not taken seriously by the wrestlers because they are either shoved aside, super kicked, and they usually have their mics taken away from them. I personally think pro-wrestling is moving away from establishing new credible interviewers. Alicia Atout from MLW seems to be the exception but hopefully she will become the rule.

    Momentum Squandered

    Momentum Squandered

    On June 27th, 2011, CM Punk cut his infamous "pipebomb" promo, a worked shoot angle that turned him into one of the most popular starts in WWE. Ten years later, The Wrestling Caucus, Peter A and smileyarriaga reflect on The Summer of Punk and how his momentum was squandered that summer by getting into a pointless program with Kevin Nash and subsequently losing clean to Triple H, who transitioning into an office role both in storyline and in real life. Throughout the 2010's, Becky Lynch, Daniel Brian, and Kofi Kingston all built an organic connection with WWE fans similar to CM Punk, all to have their momentum slowed down in some form.
