See what happens when you stick to the basics of wrestling? Back in early September, I wrote about how the WWE had botched the Divas Revolution. Instead of letting things develop naturally, the WWE forced teams down our throats. They booked the start of the Divas Revolution as groups of girls fighting each other in… Read More JC’s Top Rope Report: Finally Getting A Proper Divas Revolution
If you are a fan of the WWE like I am, you know this tends to be the down period for the product. The big SummerSlam push has come and gone, and it is still too early to start any kind of build for Wrestlemania. It is often a lull period for the company. If… Read More JC’s Top Rope Report: Just How Bad Is The WWE Right Now?
-First off yes, we did record a podcast last week. The problem is the file became corrupted and we were unable to upload it. We will be back next week. But the WWE has now stolen two ideas we came up with last week. The first being the start of a potential John Cena/Dolph Ziggler… Read More JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 10.12.15

-Sasha Banks vs Paige was good. The ending was a bit screwy but worked for the situation. See what happens when two good women’s wrestlers are given time to work in the ring? And there wasn’t a Bella to be found anywhere!
-Holy hell has this Dolph Ziggler/Rusev/Lana/Summer Rae angle gone down hill. This is absolutely the worst possible way this could have gone. It’s cheesy and bad soap opera writing. Why should Lana be upset that Summer Rae invaded Dolph’s privacy and went into his locker room without an invitation? You can’t do a Divas Revolution… Read More JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 8.31.15
-Man, that opening Authority segment only lasted 10 minutes but it felt like it was 30. Was that really necessary? It was dragged out and the people in the truck screwed up the video cues a couple of times. It seemed like a “Hey don’t forget about the Authority!” type of segment.
