Note this pro wrestling article pertaining to WWE's premier event, WrestleMania, starts with a female performers name! That's how much the industry, and world in general has changed.

We're not going to get political or #metoo on you. Pro wrestling is undergoing a resurgence in many parts of the globe include the United States, Canada, Japan and even down under in Australia (Melbourne is hotly rumoured for a supershow in Melbourne late this year).

The ladies are kicking ass, be it Becky Lynch 'The Las Kicker', Rousey or Hart Dungeon survivor, Natalie Neidhart (Natie sounds more feminine, which suits this feline loving lady, who is quite the pur-fect wrestling machine. Then there is the former Diva used used to be known as Ric Flair's wrestling daughter. Not any more, she is Charlotte Flair, and Ms Flair is all woman.

Then there's other world class women wrestler Bayley, Sasha Banks, Mickie James, Alexa Bliss, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville and so the list goes on. Oh, Asuka -The Empress of Tomorrow.

See what's happened here... we started out with an article on WrestleMania, and got stuck on the ladies - they are truly amazing. Nothing against the ladies of the past eras, greats such as Moolah, Mae Young, Leilani Kai, The Jumping Bomb Angels, Bull Nakano, Malia Hosaka, or former Dangerous Alliance member, Madusa, but you get what where's saying - the ladies have turned it up a notch, and if Rousey can remain injury and scandle free she will be in for a killer 2018, be it with or without the assistance of Dwyane 'The Rock' Johnson, Brock Lesnar (former UFC champion) or others. The ladies are taking a backseat to nobody.

Oh, WrestleMania season also means we are coming up to the annual WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. Who is going to get the green light this year? Names being thrown around include JEFF JARRETT (long time friend and associate of BRIAN JAMES aka ROAD DOGG (who just happens to be a WWE agent / producer). The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) (Mark LoMonaco and Devon Hughes) are going in, and Paul Heyman is the hot face to induct them. Bill Goldberg and Ivory are also confirmed.

If your a pro wrestling fan, hardcore or casual, at the present the Road To WrestleMania is red hot, and one may argue that it's already WrestleMania in the wrestling world with all of the amazing action being delivered from pro wrestling promotions the world over. The WWE - New Japan "friendly war', that Vince McMahon apparently signed off on has been great competition to keep fans interested, and can only lead to more dream matches and great business. Could be be just a matter of time when fans are abuzz about the wrestling war which may give the classic WWF - WCW 'Monday Night Wars' a run for their money.

The UFC / MMA influence on the WWE is always present and the style is taught at the WWE Performance Centre, as is the New Japan 'Strong Style' which Tiger Mask, Dynamite Kid, Jushin 'Thunder' Liger and the late Owen Hart and Chris Benoit helped develop and popularize. The style is in safe hands with NAK ATTACK. The UK / European style is also looking great under The BRUISERWEIGHT Pete Dunne, a throwback if their ever was, and the comparisons to the living legend Steve Regal are well deserved. We would like to see more Luche Libre style thrown into the current offerings in the U.S and Australia. Rest assured, its a matter or time, and the style does get incorporated into the product from time to time, usually without a Luchadore mask. As the world gets smaller, offline and online, the merging of professional wrestling styles have been quite the treat for fans.

Did you hear... injures are a big part of pro wrestling. Just ask the likes of Samoa Joe, who ironically ended Tyson Kid's career a few years ago with his Muscle Buster finisher. Legit tough guy wrestlers Cesaro and Sheamus have also been working through injures over the past year or two. Only the WWE doctors and WWE need-to-know folks know the exact extent of their injures, but being a wrestler is only going to be a career option for those who have have a high pain threshold. Wrestling legend, Mick Foley lost an ear in a match with Vader in Germany, Stan Hansen broke Bruno Sammartino's neck in a match that took place in the legendary Madison Square Garden and Daniel Bryan has suffered a number of concussions over the years. Triple H blew a knee out years ago, Seth Rollins had to undergo a knew reconstruction...There's 100s more stories we could tell about the pain in the mat game, but we're sure you get the point.

Fans, keep writing to promoters and let them know what you love about the product, as well as what you would like to see change and improve. Fans are and have always been a driving force behind what style of wrestling is presented. We're talking to you and you, and you, as Daniel Bryan and Hulk Hogan would say Brother.

To be continued.

Shield members Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will not be overlooked, despite Roman Reigns dominating WWE social media scores

Rey Mysterio made a Royal Rumble appearance. Could he be heading for WrestleMania?

Bobby Roode: The Glorious One is one of the most solid to great pro wrestlers of the modern era. The former NXT champion and current WWE I/C champion is must see. Book it Hunter.

Dolph Ziggler often has the match of the night. Get him in a match at WrestleMania and make the fans care. One of the greatest in ring performers of all time, and now one of the highest paid

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. A fantastic tag team, and both are wrestling machines. The WWE universe needs to see them on the big stage

Elias may be the sleeper talent of the WWE roster. He is starting to fulfill his massive potential and them some. A great in ring worker who oozes an amazing charisma. Not bad on the guitar either, and what a way with words. WrestleMania needs to Walk With Elias. Expect the unexpected.

Finn Bálor can and often does have match of the night. Most fans would like to see 'The Demon' in full flight at the show of shows. Who will bring out the best in him? We will know soon. Bálor is over with fans and WWE top management. Keep delivering top matches and he will stay over for years just as 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin did.


Shinsuke Nakamura


More facts from the wrestling world

In decades gone by many female wrestlers were overlooked by the WWF. They would include the likes of Australia's Susan Sexton. The fighting felines have not always been high on the WWE priority, but the are now.

Many former WWF lady wrestlers have been able to rekindle their relationship with the WWE powers that be. Names like Madusa, Wendi Richter. By the way, Madusa was acting on orders from Eric Bischoff when she notoriously threw the WWE Diva's championship belt in a WCW trash can. We thought we would just clear that up for you.

Former WWF I/C and UFC champion, Ken Shamrock, remains interested to return to the WWE. A match or even face off with the likes of Brock Lesnar would be compelling. Shamrock's best days may be behind them, but once a legend, always a legend. Shamrock and his business manger Des. W Woodruff have a great podcast show 'The World's Most Dangerous Podcast' if you haven't checked it out yet.

WWE's push of Japanese sensation Shinsuke Nakamura (set to face AJ Styles at WrestleMania) may or may not be related to the gaining in popularity of New Japan Pro Wrestling, how recently toured Australia. The WWE vs New Japan Pro Wrestling war is alive and well, even if WWE see New Japan as little or no competition. Maybe don't tell Chris Jericho that, who helped put about an extra 15,000 or 20,000 bums in seats at WrestleDream 12, as well as a similar boost to NJPW World (New Japan's online streaming product). See Jericho vs Kenny Omega if you haven't already. Omega is not set to battle Cody (Rhodes) at their next supershow.

WWE is continuing to scout talent from the wrestling world. You can bet that WWE will be getting reports from the recent New Japan Pro Wrestling Australian tour. Progress Wrestling is also set to tour Australia, with a big show at The Star Sydney booked in. The Star used to be known as Star City Casino. I guess pro wrestling and gambling mix.

WWE top brass Vince McMahon has stepped back from NXT who Triple H is now spearheading. WWE 205 (the Cruiserweight Division) is also understood to be largely under Triple H's control, with former Impact Wrestling talent, Drake Maverick acting as the General Manager.

There's a question over what's going to happen with the status of the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. Little doubt that Braun Strowman would win this in a real fight, or perhaps Lesnar or Angle, but you get the point. Maybe Hogan could be thrown into the mix, which would also mask his old style brawling style, and could play into his strengths such as working the crowd, throwing punches and reverting back to the good old clothesline - still a favorite with today's new breed of professional wrestlers.

The WWE continues to build upon it's strong following in Australia, further boosted along by the renewal of the contract with Channel Nine (9GO!) which broadcasts a 1 hour version of RAW and SmackDown. This has helped boost WWE subscriber numbers in Australia, as well as get a closer foot into the pop culture landscape.

Rob Gronkowski remains of interest to the WWE powers that be. Star power plus athletic ability

Roman Reigns doesn't need cousin 'The Rock' to get over, but it sure caused a stir when they appeared together. Reigns is his own man. Reigns went on record with 'It's My Yard Now'



WrestleMania: The showcase of the immortals. Jim Ross used to say 'The granddaddy of them all'. Times change in and around the professional wrestling aka sports entertainment biz


Jimmy Hart and Hulk Hogan. WCW promotion. A Hogan return to WWE at WrestleMania remains a hot rumor. Triple H nor Vince McMahon have confirmed. Fans and wrestlers want him back. Mark Henry advises good, as long as he apologizes to all African - American wrestlers with the WWE.
