Mandy Rose Will Be A Big Deal, And It’s Easy To See Why

Mandy Rose is headed for big things in WWE, and it’s easy to see why. Appearance is still part of the game in professional wrestling, and she exceeds that standard. The rest can be taught.

Mandy Rose WWE Smackdown Ratings

I was raised as a Catholic. Like many Americans raised in the faith, I haven’t been the best one over the years. I don’t go to church as often as I should. I haven’t always turned the other cheek or treated others the way I would like to be treated.

Sometimes, I wonder if there is a God. When you turn on the news & see what’s going on in the world, it’s tough not to have your faith challenged. What kind of God would allow the atrocities that happen every single day? If God is there to protect us, why would there be hunger across most of the world? Why would He empower those that embrace the deadly sin of Greed? Why won’t He make His people understand that we are all His creations, and that He loves us all equally? Doesn’t He?

It’s easy to question the existence of God in 2018. Until I see Mandy Rose, and I realize that there is a God.

God is good.

I’m not here to tell you that Mandy is going to be one of the great female workers of her generation. Her matches have been fine so far. She looks like she knows what she’s doing. But to be perfectly honest, I’m going to cut her a lot of slack in this area. You know why? Because when I see Mandy Rose on my television, or on my computer screen, or on my Android, I get a funny feeling in a certain area of my body.

I’m not supposed to talk about that in 2018. Things are different now, you see. WWE isn’t going to have a swimsuit magazine featuring their female Superstars. They’re not sending them to tropical locations for photo shoots & DVD productions. (Come to think of it, they really should have done this while the men were wrestling in Saudi Arabia.) They still have Dance Contests, but you won’t be seeing any Swimsuit Contests or Wet & Wild matches or anything like that.

WWE isn’t alone in this presentation shift. 411Mania isn’t populated with random pictures of celebrities. I’m not doing the 411 Wrestling Hot 100. When I do Top 5s for The Chairshot I’m not ranking people based on how attractive I think they are. We judge people differently now than we used to. The #MeToo & #TimesUp movements have helped ensure that.

Don’t get me wrong. In many cases, I think political correctness is a good thing. Many on the right decry the PC culture, mostly because they want to be able to use certain terms to describe certain types of people. I have zero sympathy for their inability to get away with bigotry. When I look back at some of the things WWE presented during the Attitude Era & the 2000s, I’m happy that they went PG. Some of the stuff they pulled was 100% not ok, and didn’t accomplish the goal of presenting compelling television. Knowing Vince McMahon’s sense of humor, they’d still be trying to do Hot Lesbian Action & Katie Vick type angles today if they didn’t go PG.

I, for one, will gladly put up with the lack of blood in matches if it spares me from wrestlers sleeping with transvestites as storyline fodder.

I do think there’s one area where we’ve corrected ourselves too much. Sexual harassment is a tricky thing to figure out for most of us. I think we all know that extreme cases that can lead to prison time are certainly unacceptable. If a member of the opposite sex says no, we should stop trying. There are grey areas however. Like, say you’re a wrestling columnist that’s never going to meet anybody you write about.

From where I sit, my writing about Mandy Rose’s attractiveness, or anybody else’s, should be fair game. I admit that the Hot 100 was borderline, and that the variety of “Ultimate Babe” tournaments were iffy at best. Currently, I wouldn’t consider producing such things unless the price was right. With that being said, I don’t see the crime in pointing out that Mandy Rose will have a successful career in whatever she does because she’s smoking hot.

If we’re being perfectly honest, attractive people rule the world.

We might not act like we judge based on appearance, but we clearly do. Stores with attractive salespeople get more traffic than ones without. If Roseanne Barr looked like Tomi Lahren, she might still have a TV show. The Trumps are certainly easier to put up with when we’re looking at Ivanka or Melania instead of Donald. Look at the cable news channels that constantly talk about these people…you’re not seeing too many ugly people hosting, are you?

We all have personal examples of this, so here’s mine: I’m on a dating website because I’m in my early to mid 30s & still single. I don’t get a lot of messages from women, and messages I send rarely get a response. Why? Because the first thing you see on a profile is the picture, and that’s when you decide if you’re interested or not. When most women see a picture of me, or see me in person, they decide they’re not interested within a couple of seconds.

I’m not bit-ok, maybe I am a little bitter about it, but it’s the truth. Men, women, it’s the same either way. Most people are more interested in a physical connection than an intellectual or spiritual one. There was a woman I had a pretty good connection with at work, which was a bit problematic because our company frowned upon inter-workplace relationships. She ended up leaving, which kind of stunk, but it meant there was a chance for something more. Until she hooked up with some hot young thing she met on the Internet. I don’t think she’s actually met the guy yet, but obviously it’s a strong connection because he looks good and that’s all that really matters to most people.

And hey, it matters to me too.

While we’re continuing to be honest, let’s admit that our favorite wrestlers of the opposite gender are also the ones we find the most attractive. I’m sure I don’t need to remind you of Roman Reigns’ popularity with the ladies, as the reasoning behind that goes without saying. Alexa Bliss is a very charismatic talent, but I see as many comments about her biscuit butt as I do about her promos. I’ve seen people talk about how Bayley secretly has the best body in WWE, so even the most innocent persona in WWE isn’t safe from being objectified. Heck, even Kevin Owens gets it from people that are into bears. Let’s not discuss AJ Styles’ popularity among the gay community.

Sonya Deville certainly has her fans. She has a unique look & brings something to WWE that nobody else has before. But if we’re talking about the classic image of beauty that WWE has pushed for the past twenty years, we’re talking about Mandy Rose. Mandy follows in the footsteps of Sable, Sunny, Trish Stratus, Stacy Keibler, Torrie Wilson, Maryse & countless other beautiful blondes that I’m forgetting at the moment.

There will always be an audience that likes blondes with blue eyes, tanned skin & ample bosoms. As long as that’s the case, Mandy Rose has a great chance of success in WWE. I’ll be rooting for her because…well, I think that’s pretty obvious.

Because I think she’s hot. See, admitting it is the first step to freedom. I promise you it isn’t that hard. Well, not as hard as it is when I see Mand-

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

Published

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
