Forget Schrödinger’s Cat, I have Schrödinger’s WWE Network Subscription

If you are familiar with the concept of Schrödinger’s catI just realized today that I have a textbook case of Schrödinger’s WWE network subscription.

I’ve been getting emails telling me that my WWE network subscription expires tomorrow. Today, I got one telling me it will expire tomorrow so I decided to log in to my account and see. Honestly, had WrestleMania fallen in April and not March, I would have saved myself the $$$ and let it expire for a month.

But no, when I logged into my account I was informed that my next billing date is tomorrow which means my subscription will renew.

2015 WWE Royal Rumble Challenge Entry Order

The 2015 Royal Rumble challenge Entry Order has been set. We have 25 competitors set and so there are 5 lucky souls that ended up getting 2 numbers in the match.

I used to generate the order of entry list. The methodology I used is probably more complicated than I needed to make it but it was random and ensured every person had as good a chance as everyone else to end up with two numbers.

The order of entry is blow the jump. If the wrestler that comes out at your number wins the match, you win the challenge.

Still Time to Enter the 2015 Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble Challenge

The 2015 WWE Royal Rumble is on Sunday. There is still time to enter the 2015 Combat Royal Rumble challenge.

It is simple. Tomorrow, a random number drawing will take place. If you get, for example, the #21 and the person who enters the Royal Rumble on Sunday at #21 wins, then you win the challenge.

Fast, simple, free. Second place goes to the person who has the entry that is responsible for most eliminations.

We have 15 entries thus far. If we get no more, each person will get two numbers. If we get thirty, each person will get one number. Between 15 and 30 and there will be random drawings to see the lucky people that get two numbers. All numbers will be posted on this site after the drawing.

How do you enter the challenge?

Get in on the 2015 Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble Pool

The 2015 WWE Royal Rumble is quickly approaching and as a result, it is time again for the Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool.

What is the Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool? The Combat Hooligans Royal Rumble pool allows for 30 players. Each is asigned a number by random and that number matches the wrestler who enters that spot in the Royal Rumble. As an example, last year I was assigned the number 1 and the number one participant in the Royal Rumble was CM Punk. So had Punk won the Royal Rumble, I would have won the pool.

Wrestle Kingdom 9 is Good for the Wrestling Fan’s Soul

When Global Force Wrestling announced that they would be spearheading an English Language version of the annual New Japan Pro Wrestling Jan. 4 show at the Tokyo Dome, I was quite excited.

I’ve been casually following the NJPW product for years by listening to the Observer Radio shows after big events. The language barrier is an issue for me being visually impaired, I need the commentary to give me a sense of the action so that’s why I never ordered online.

I dare you to watch this video and not laugh yourself.

Spike TV Elects not to Renew Television Contract with Impact Wrestling

TNA iMPACT debuted on Spike TV on October 1, 2005. After about a year on the air, the show was moved from Saturday night to a 2-hour block on Thursday. Then in 2010 there was an ill-fated move to Monday night to go head-to-head with Monday Night Raw and rekindle the Monday night war that did wonders for the industry in the late 1990s.

Now, the end would seem to have arrived. TMZ reported that Spike TV won’t be renewing the contract for iMPACT Wrestling.
