If there was a word to describe Summer Slam, “Polarizing” might be a good one. A whole lot of people had a WHOLE LOT of strong opinions on the show. So much so, in fact, that I found myself so busy thinking about the opinions of others that it was hard for me to remember my own – The show got lost in the reaction.

So, to remedy that, I sat down with a pen and a notebook and decided to actually watch the show, jotting down my thoughts along the way. As tends to happen when I do something like that, the theme came along as I went, and since this is the Twitter-world, I gave it a hashtag.

We’re down to the nitty gritty here in part 3 of my Ranking of my 40 Favorite WWE talents. Only thirteen superstars remain (well, technically, 13 male wrestlers remain – female talents and other personalities will be saved for another time), and for many of them, the distinction ‘twixt them is very minimal.

One of the less-talked about aspects of the “Attitude Era”, mainly because it wasn’t very exciting to most people, was the ‘gang warfare’ that took place in the late 90’s. I’m obviously not talking about the nWo or DX here, rather the feud between the Nation of Domination, Los Boricuas and the Disciples of Apocalypse.

Now if two of those stables are completely unfamiliar to you, I wouldn’t be surprised – as I said, it’s not necessarily a hallmark of the era, but I loved it, solely because as anyone paying attention knows, I’m a big stable fan. I think there should be stables all the time, so naturally, I crafted a What If Wednesday that goes along perfectly with that.

What if “Gang Warfare” happened again in WWE, but on a much larger scale?

Took a little bit of a break there, but welcome back to a weekday edition of The Chief’s Briefs. After believing that the Comcast cable gods were conspiring against me, keeping me from Monday Night RAW, I had a pleasant surprise to return home from work this afternoon and find it waiting for me on my DVR. Thus, today’s episode is a RAW-recap spectacular!
