Reading character from the way someone laughs: a study of WWE’s Kings’ Court episode from Table for Three

William Regal Kings Court

Table for Three is one of the very few shows that I still enjoy watching from WWE. And I was especially pleased about the Kings’ Court episode with William Regal, Sheamus and Wade Barrett. As you might still remember, I’m all about the little details. And for this little gem of twenty minutes I took a special eye on the way these three people laugh. Enjoy my analysis and write me your opinion if you like.

“Polizeiruf 110: Wendemanöver” — eine tragische Liebesgeschichte

Wendemanöver_Jochen Drexler_Sylvester Groth

Lange nicht mehr hat mich eine Fernsehproduktion so sehr begeistert wie der zweiteilige Polizeiruf 110 “Wendemanöver”. Nur per Zufall darauf gestoßen, habe ich beide Teile bereits mehrfach gesehen und entdecke jedes Mal neue Zusammenhänge, Metaphern und kleine Geschichten. Neben der gut erzählten Haupthandlung sind es vor allem die Nebenhandlungen zwischen Magdeburg und Rostock, die diesen Polizeiruf sehenswert machen. Und deshalb werde ich hier auch detailiert darüber berichten. Viel Freude.

Open letter to WWE regarding Dean Ambrose, Cesaro and all other great wrestlers who are put down in favour to just one guy who needs a legion to get over with the fans


This is an open letter to WWE that I have written for as many people as possible to read. In here I’m expressing my feelings about the use of wrestlers (male and female) in WWE, the storylines and gimmicks. I’m just a fan, maybe a fan who thinks and cares too much, therefore I’m writing this open letter to feel a little better but also try to push forward demands for the wrestlers who won’t ever say anything bad about the company, so someone else has to do this for them. At the end this open letter will be nothing else but a drop of tear. But many tears will make a river and when you don’t change anything, WWE, this river will become an ocean that will finally run over your headquarters and your whole company.

I’m furious. And I’m calm at the same time. I’m furious because fans expressing their demands and feelings for so long already. But everything that WWE does is throwing out a few bones to their fans like they are dogs. And when the big wave of anger is swept away, it’s back to the usual business. But I’m also calm because I’m able to express my feelings; I’m able to put into words what’s wrong with the WWE, with this company that acts like it stands above all, like it’s the only true religion on Earth. But viewership goes down and apparently Vince McMahon doesn’t know why. So, please, lean back and read on. I’ll tell you right now.

Night Of Champions 2015/09/20: Talking about imaginations that could happen and would be great but will never be done -OR- The story of Dean Ambrose’s life

Dean Ambrose at Night Of Champions

This headline was written right after Night Of Champions. But I awaited the results of the following RAW before writing anything. This time I’m not just lamenting but also take you to my imagination of possibilities that WWE always throws out as hints but never realize for whatever reason. Feel free to join me in my frustration.

The Wrestling Week That Was, no. 7: Even as a jobber to The Miz and Big Show Cesaro entertains and connects -OR- It looks like that finally William Regal gets some recognition for all the work he does

Cesaro SmackDown 2015-09-10

It feels like years ago that Cesaro got his tiny little push that fell on a Friday. But also in his very short matches he’s probably more entertaining than any participant of so-called main event matches recently. Mid-week was a lot better with the debut of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa in NXT. Plus: I’m losing all of my enthusiasm for the current Dean Ambrose character. All this in the newest edition of The Wrestling Week That Was. Enjoy!

Rassling Ragbag 15/09/05: I’d have no problem with adding another match review to my Ambregal shrine

Dean Ambrose 3525 SummerSlam signing_b

A few things happened in the last few days that need my commentary. A few things will happen that need a bit of promotion. And a few things might happen that need a bit of speculation. In this article I’m talking about the new shirt of Cesaro, the lack of any merchandize for William Regal, his possible match at NXT TakeOver: London, a few other things about NXT, and of course a few words about Dean Ambrose. Enjoy!
