I think WWE All-Stars is super rad, so when we're talking downloadable wrestlers that are now available, I'm all ears.Great news for cheapskates, some free content is available in the form of playable Honky Tonk Man and R-Tru...
A few days ago, my phone rang. When I picked it up, The Honky Tonk Man was on the other end of the line. Yes, I'm talking about The Honky Tonky Man -- real name Roy Wayne Farris -- WWF (now WWE) legend who still holds the rec...
Now, I have never followed professional wrestling all that closely, particularly in the 90's when my pretentious teenaged self thought it was more amusing to watch and laugh at my friends who were into wrestling. So, wh...
As someone who grew up in the ’80s, I have fond memories of these rubber WWF toys that I’d ricochet all over my house. Drop Hulk Hogan on his rubbery toes in just the right place and he’d spring forward, sma...

"Macho Man" Randy Savage promotes WWE All Stars in the above video. It's something of a shock to the senses if you haven't seen him in fifteen years. Sure, he'll be sixty soon and his profession isn't known for producin...
One of the main reasons I even got into watching the WWE when I was younger was because of the female wrestlers like Trish Stratus and Stacy Keibler. What? I'm a guy. Deal with it. I checked out WWE All Stars last week, and n...

It's been a long, long time since I've watched professional wrestling. Because of this I have no idea who M.V.P. is or what he does, but I assume that he is a pretty big star in the WWE because they chose him to do this vide...
