If you were looking for a nostalgia piece the same way you tuned in to RAW 25 for the trip down memory lane, then you came to the right place. But if you were looking for one last push as we barrel towards this year’s Royal Rumble event, then you better get the hell outta here ’cause we ain’t got no time for that. Hey, RAW didn’t either.
Editor’s Note: The following blog post was written by Anton Achacoso, who went to Tokyo over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays with his family, and ended up catching Wrestle Kingdom 12 in the process. A couple of hours after the main event ended, he emailed Smark Henry and asked if he could write about his experience. And why would we say no to that? At this point, let’s turn you over to our Wrestle Kingdom 12 correspondent, Anton Achacoso.

The Evil Brit is one of the most common tropes in American TV and film. It’s easy to typecast someone British as a villain, especially if you’re pandering to the American masses.

It’s no secret that things haven’t been easy for Paige over the last couple of years, both in her personal and professional lives, that we here at the Smark Henry offices empathize with her as she
Samoa Joe suffered another injury on RAW during his match with Rhyno yesterday (Manila time). According to WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann, Joe “felt a pop at the bottom of his [right] foot.” After taking a look, the WWE medical staff believe he has a plantar fascia rupture.

#ThemeSongTuesday is back, baybay! The column took a two-week break because of the holidays, but now that everybody’s resumed work or school—or both—it’s only right that TST returns on the first full week of 2018. This Tuesday, let’s focus on one of my favorite WWE Superstars today and the two entrance themes he’s had since first bursting onto the scene a couple of years ago.
Drew Gulak has become one of the more compelling characters in all of WWE that it’s a shame that he’s barely featured on RAW, and only really gets significant airtime on 205 Live. His arc
