Lists are a funny thing – they’re always so subjective. One person’s top 5 Beatles albums could be very different from someone else’s’. The top 101 best written tv shows of all time chosen by TV Guide could be very different from a list compiled by Entertainment Weekly. Which makes the notion of choosing The Top 25 Greatest Rivalries In Wrestling a hard one – every fan has their favourites. Luckily for WWE, who recently released a Blu-ray/DVD by that very title, they managed to cover some of the best moments in wrestling history.
If you were a wrestling fan during the heady days of the late ’90s Attitude era, you know that one of the greatest performers during that time was Mankind.
Or was it Dude Love?
Or was it Cactus Jack?
Or was it Mick Foley?
It’s was definitely that guy who The Undertaker threw off the top of the Hell In A Cell.
“Good God Almighty, they’ve killed him!”
That might be Mick Foley’s most talked about moment, but the Hardcore Legend is more than just a crazy stunt, as his new Blu-ray/DVD set For All Mankind – The Life And Career of Mick Foley demonstrates.

It’s hard to believe that this years marks the 11th anniversary of the closure of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Based out of Atlanta, Georgia, WCW was the company that, thanks to the money of Ted Turner and the arrogant brilliance of one Eric Bischoff, managed to ignite a wrestling war that last for a years and nearly put the World Wrestling Federation out of business. But with too much money and not enough solid management, WCW could only briefly burn bright before finally fading away.

In the late 1990′s wrestling was all the rage. And for the briefest moment in time, the rage was caused by World Championship Wrestling and their band of former World Wrestling Federation stars, the New World Order.
I remember describing the NWO to my girlfriend at the time as this – you have your good guys, your bad guys and then the EVEN worse guys. That’s the NWO.
And yes, that’s right. I was watching wrestling AND had a girlfriend.
The NWO helped WCW dominate the Monday night wrestling wars for a good two years, and nearly helped put the WWF out of business. However, poor planning and stoylines and complete mismanagement eventually led WWF to purchase their rival, and along with it, all the NWO footage and trademarks, which is now on display in the new Blu-Ray/DVD collection NWO: The Revolution. Check out the trailer below and then hit the jump to read our review.
Calling oneself the best in the world at anything is always a bold claim, usually driven by ego rather than by fact. But in the case of WWE Champion CM Punk, the most recent breakout professional wrestling superstar, the proof is in the pudding, and in the new Blu-Ray/DVD CM Punk: Best In The World.
While attending Fan Expo Canada 2012, I had the chance to get the inside scoop on the upcoming THQ game WWE 13, the next installment in the venerable sports entertainment franchise, from Senior Designer Bryan Williams. As a long time fan of wrestling video games, it was exciting to find out what THQ has in store for us when the game is released on October 30th. So check out the game trailer below and then watch our interview after the jump (and turn up the volume, as it was pretty darn noisy at the event!).
WWE fans listen up! Here’s an exclusive interview with Edge (aka Adam Copeland) from this year’s Wizard World Comic Con, led by Biff Bam Pop’s own editor Andy Burns. Andy has interviewed the legendary Canadian wrestling icon once before, and was asked to come host the interview panel.
In Andy’s own words, “Getting the chance to talk to WWE Hall of Famer Edge was a great experience. He answered the questions Wizard World VIP fans had sent in with honesty, which is what you always hope for when you talk to a celebrity. He was as gracious and forthcoming with me as he was when I first interviewed him all the way back in 2001, when I was an aspiring freelance writer working for WWE Magazine. “
We’ve got the full 20 minute interview; check it out as Edge talks about the terms of his retirement and his brand new biographical DVD.
