Infograph » Brock Lesnar vs Triple-H (Steel Cage Match) [Official Report]
It took Brock Lesnar three matches and a -- tumultuous year under two separate WWE contracts, but on May 19, The Anomaly may finally feel at home for the first time since returning the -- squared circle. That’s because at Extreme Rules, the 266-pound destroyer will face archival Triple H inside the confines of a steel cage. While -- Triple H may have more experience competing in WWE cages, Lesnar has a much different perspective.

The flesh-tearing tendencies of chain-link fence might not offer Lesnar the same solace as the woodlands of Jackson Hole, Wyo., but there is little reason to believe the burly bruiser and his adviser Paul Heyman were anything but calculating in demanding Lesnar vs. Triple H III take place in a cage. “The Beast Incarnate,” after all, saw an eight-sided cage fight or two during his eight-year sabbatical from WWE, during which he ascended the heavyweight ranks of the Ultimate Fighting Championship faster than any other competitor in the history of mixed martial arts.

The steel walls on a standard UFC Octagon measure 6 feet tall. Gates are built into two sides of the structure, allowing both combatants’ corner men to enter the Octagon between rounds, and the fighting surface area measures 750 square feet. According to the UFC website, the structure was designed with fighters’ safety in mind.

The well-being of Superstars, in contrast, was far from a primary concern in the construction of WWE’s steel cage. The cage’s steel walls tower over even the tallest of Superstars, clearing the 7-foot tall Big Show by three feet or more. There is only one door in a WWE steel cage, controlled by a WWE official, and instead of vinyl padding on top, a dangerous steel trestle frames the perimeter and is intended to be used as a weapon. The WWE ring measures approximately 400 square feet meaning less opportunity for fighters to stall or avoid locking up.

It’s clear these two steel domains are not perfectly analogous, but are the disparities between them enough to invalidate the experience Lesnar gleaned while dominating the UFC?

Starting with his Extreme Rules Match against John Cena last April and continuing through to his No Holds Barred Match against The Game at WrestleMania, Lesnar has yet to compete under a standard set of WWE rules since making his return to the ring. As such, the former three-time WWE Champion has enjoyed the freedom to bully and batter his opponents however he’s seen fit.

In his three bouts, Lesnar has not shied from bringing his fights outside the squared circle. The WWE Universe remembers the sight of The Anomaly heinously trapping Cena in their bout last year, hanging the Cenation leader by his feet from the ring post and using him as a heavy bag. At The Grandest Stage of Them All, some of Lesnar’s most dangerous offense from repeat overhead throws to a table-smashing suplex occurred outside the ring. At Extreme Rules, these options will not be available to The Anomaly unless he and Triple H somehow escape the cage.

Even though the steel cage will likely keep Lesnar vs. Triple H III from degenerating into a sprawling ringside brawl, the match conditions could nonetheless favor Lesnar for one specific reason: Triple H won’t be able to use steel steps. If The Anomaly has shown an Achilles’ heel since making his return, it hasn’t so much been lingering effects of his bout with diverticulitis but, rather, the steel steps.

Cena threw everything he had at Lesnar during their match last year, but it wasn’t until after the Cenation leader delivered a steel chain to the head and then an Attitude Adjustment onto the steps that The Anomaly could be pinned. Similarly, The Game managed to keep Lesnar’s shoulders down at WrestleMania only after he DDT’d and then Pedigreed the former UFC Heavyweight Champion onto the steps, which had been brought into the ring. Barring some unforeseen incident in which the steel cage door comes unlocked, Lesnar need not prepare for a run-in with the steel steps.

As the heated Lesnar–Triple H rivalry approaches its endgame, the WWE Universe is left to wonder exactly how the addition of a steel cage will affect the third battle in this treacherous war. Will Lesnar’s background in MMA and, in turn, his experience competing in an eight-sided cage work to his advantage? Or does it risk doing just the opposite, fostering a false sense of complacency in a match format that has historically punished anyone foolish enough to let down their guard for even a second?

May 19 will represent Lesnar’s first time in a classic WWE steel cage since summer 2003 and his first time fighting in a cage of any sort since his last UFC fight in December 2011. By comparison, Triple H is among WWE’s most experienced Superstars when it comes to Steel Cage Matches.


Seventy-five years ago today, Superman — the original superhero — made his first appearance in “Action Comics #1.” Since then he has always stood for truth and justice. More than that, the Last Son of Krypton has become a symbol of hope and inspiration both in comic books and the real world. Although alien in origin, Superman represents the good in all of us, a red and blue example of what we should all aspire to be.

John Cena may not be able to fly, nor does he have X-ray vision or heat vision, but he stands up for what he believes in and always fights for the greater good. There is no amount of Kryptonite that could keep the Cenation leader from standing up to a challenge inside the ring or fulfilling wishes for young fans all over the world.

The WWE Universe often refers to the 11-time WWE Champion as “SuperCena” — a direct reference to the Man of Steel — for his seemingly superhuman strength and his ability to emerge victorious even when all of the chips are stacked against him. But the truth about “SuperCena” doesn’t necessarily lie in what he does in the ring; it is more about what he represents. Cena’s creeds of “hustle, loyalty and respect” and “rise above hate” are synonymous with truth and justice.

Although a polarizing figure among the WWE Universe, the closet parallels Cena draws to Superman are his unwavering resolve and his ability to inspire millions.

According To WWE.COM:
As The Shield prepares to go to war against the dream team of the reunited Brothers of Destruction and -- Daniel Bryan on this Monday's special U.K. edition of Raw, explores seven other classic combinations that we would also like to see -- battle on “The Hounds of Justice” in our dreams.

Mick Foley, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Rock

Does the WWE Universe have any interest in The Shield simultaneously smelling what The Rock is cooking and having a nice day? Hell yeah!

The “Hounds of Justice” have taken out everyone from John Cena, Ryback, Randy Orton and Big Show to The Great One himself. However, could they withstand the combined force of three of the greatest Superstars of The Attitude Era?

Shane McMahon, Mr. McMahon and Triple H

For any treacherous trio hell-bent on unleashing their own brand of justice throughout WWE, it only stands to reason that, sooner or later, they’d have to answer to the first family of the squared circle.

Just imagine how interested Triple H would be in such a matchup, after The Shield came within inches of attacking the injured Game on the April 12 edition of SmackDown. Certainly Mr. McMahon the ruthless Chairman of WWE who never backs down from a fight when the future of his company is at stake would take up the mantle. And a competitor the caliber of Shane McMahon, who could arguably rival Cactus Jack in terms of pure extreme aggressiveness, would be an ideal candidate to help crack The Shield.

Tommy Dreamer, Sandman and Sabu

Emerging from the stands is an effective tactic to be sure, but hardly a new one. One has to wonder what will happen if The Sandman made his classic entrance through the crowd Kendo stick in hand flanked by The Innovator of Violence and one of the most reckless residents of The Land of the Extreme?

Yes, the destruction would absolutely reach new levels if the brutal “The Hounds of Justice” went head-to-head with three of the toughest competitors that ECW ever produced, bringing the very concept of “extreme” to the extreme.

The Brood: Gangrel, Christian and Edge

You want to talk about intimidation? Testing the boundaries of sanity in the face of darkness? We’d like Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns take on the mystifying faction of Edge, Christian and Gangrel?

No strangers to the art of spectacle with actions that included using strangely grotesque tactics to freak out their opponents and even helping the legendary Undertaker to hoist up the Big Boss Man from Hell in a Cell this trifecta of fear may serve as the perfect Superstars to make The Shield rethink their own reign of terror.

The Ultimate Warrior, Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Hulk Hogan

If The Shield finds “injustice” in WWE, it only stands to reason that the practices they seek to “tip the scales against” are embedded deep in the very fabric of WWE. So how about a classic clash with three of the greatest champions of The Golden Era of WWE?

As effective as The Shield can be, the tactical tyrants may just have their hands full against the unprecedented alliance of Hulkamania, Macho Madness and the “God of War”!

Demolition: Ax, Smash and Crush

Horrific aggression personified, Demolition represents everything their name suggest. After all, “pain and destruction is [in fact their] middle name.”

Brutality aside, however, Ax, Smash and Crush stand as the single longest-reigning World Tag Team Champion in WWE history the same titles they held for more combined days than any other tag team. Translation, the clash between the black-clad warriors would be something to see.  Warpaint anyone?

The Spirit Squad

Looking for a reason to root for The Shield for a change? We’ll give you five: Kenny, Johnny, Mitch, Nicky and Mikey! And that’s all we’re going to say about that.

Infograph » The Making Of Andre The Giant Statue [Official Article]
According To WWE.COM:

In the beginning, Andre the Giant was just pieces of plaster.

Three months out from the unveiling of WWE’s larger-than-life tribute to “The Eighth Wonder of the World” at WrestleMania Axxess, the giant’s sculpture was still in parts in the studio of New York City’s ATTA Inc. There were boots as big as two toddlers, a mighty hand on a paint-splattered table that looked capable of gripping the Statue of Liberty’s torch and a replica of the famous Frenchman’s head that, when placed next to a likeness of New York Giant Eli Manning, made the dome of the 6-foot-4 quarterback look like that of a child.

This was February, not long after Triple H had gotten inspired while touring East Rutherford, N.J.’s MetLife Stadium in preparation for WrestleMania. While walking through the facility’s Legacy Club a quasi hall of fame celebrating some of the most integral figures in Giants history WWE’s COO was struck by a row of bronze busts depicting Big Blue greats like Phil Simms and Frank Gifford. The renderings were striking, the craftsmanship flawless. The statues made these men seem eternal, important, historic  more than just athletes, they appeared as icons.

It seems obvious now, but WWE had never honored its Hall of Famers in this way and Triple H immediately set about changing that. They would commission a statue big and bronze and beautiful and put it where everyone in the WWE Universe could see it, interact with it and have their picture taken with it. And the sculpture would be of the biggest Superstar both figuratively and literally in WWE history, Andre the Giant.

How do you find someone to make a towering figure of a professional wrestler? The answer was simple ATTA Inc., the same Manhattan-based group that created the busts for the New York Giants. Artist Karen Atta had been running her studio for nearly 30 years, creating a diverse array of hand-crafted designs like a giant-sized Captain America figure for Universal Studios in California and a striking bronze statue of Dr. Martin Luther King for Detroit’s Solanus Casey Center. She created athletes and politicians from scratch. A request to bring “The Eighth Wonder of the World” to life did not faze her.

“We’ve gotten some very odd requests over the years, but Andre’s unusual because he’s a life-size person who is larger than life,” Atta told

The giant's mythic size was documented to the point of exhaustion during his near 30-year career in sports-entertainment, making the logistics of the Andre sculpture surprisingly manageable. There were photocopies of his massive hands complete with those mythic fingers that, friends will tell you, required rings you could pass an egg through wrestling boots long preserved and meticulous records of Andre’s uncommon size from his 71-inch chest down to his 26-inch calves.

His 7-foot-4 height? Most WWE fans know it better than their own social security number.

Andre passed away in 1993, but Atta and her staff had all things necessary to bring “The Eighth Wonder of the World” back to life. They made a cast of his actual boots; they made a mold of his hand imprint; they used photographs to capture his prominent brow, the thick curls of his hair and his oversized smile. Sculptures are often built to be oversized, exaggerated as to express the enormity of the person’s presence. With the giant, this was unnecessary. But how do you create a lifelike version of a man who was not lifelike?

“His proportions are grandiose, but they’re not absurd for a human being,” Atta said. “He’s kind of perfectly proportioned.”

The giant’s size changed often throughout his career the blessing and the curse of Andre was that he never stopped growing  but the Superstar captured here was the same one who stepped over the top rope in front of more than 93,000 WWE fans in the Pontiac Silverdome to collide with Hulk Hogan in the epic main event of WrestleMania III. “The Eighth Wonder of the World” was a villain then a wicked one who wanted nothing more than to crush Hulkamania but he is not remembered this way.

In the decades since his passing, Andre is now considered as he was then the single greatest attraction in sports-entertainment. Across the globe, thousands of people lined up just to witness him. Taller Superstars have come along, heavier ones too, but none have matched the extraordinary presence of Andre. He was a giant in more than name only and his recreation had to capture that.

All told, it required nearly 500 man hours to craft the statue in a process that began with a life-size sculpt of the WWE Hall of Famer and ended with a perfectly realized bronze figure that will be unveiled at this year’s WrestleMania Axxess. But this won’t be a hands-off museum exhibit. WWE fans will be welcome to interact with the giant, compare the size of their hand to Andre’s storied paw and have their photo taken with “The Eighth Wonder of the World.”

“Although he’s very big, he will be very warm and inviting,” Atta said.

So did ATTA Inc. do the giant justice? That question was answered in March when former WWE referee Tim White, Andre’s longtime friend and traveling buddy, visited their studios to see a near complete rendering.

“That’s him,” a stunned White said when he first set eyes on the creation.

Indeed, 20 years since he passed away, nearly 30 years since he battled Big John Studd at the inaugural WrestleMania and 50 years since he left behind his humble French farming village to become the greatest attraction in sports-entertainment history, Andre the Giant had returned.

Infograph » Who Invented The RKO ? Sharpshotter, Powerbomb, Frogsplash & More ? [Official Report]

Pro wrestling’s innovators don’t always get the credit they deserve.

While every sports-entertainment fan knows that the Mandible Claw was Mankind’s signature submission hold, few realize that the inventor of the bizarre move was Dr. Sam Sheppard the same guy whose true life drama inspired the 1993 Harrison Ford thriller “The Fugitive.”

Source- WWE.COM

Who invented the RKO?

Randy Orton’s RKO has taken out every heavy hitter from Hulk Hogan to John Cena. So it may come as a surprise that the maneuver was innovated by John Laurinaitis the former Raw General Manager who is better known to the WWE Universe for his misguided governance than his Japanese ring career.

“The RKO, or as I call it, the Ace Crusher, was invented back in 1987,” the onetime Johnny Ace told “I was a young kid training and Barry Windham said to me, ‘Why don’t you do a front face neckbreaker as a move?’ ”

It wasn’t until Laurinaitis headed to All Japan Pro Wrestling in ’88 that he debuted the maneuver. In the ring with studs like “Dr. Death” Steve Williams and Kenta Kobashi, the tag team specialist needed a move that would stand out. When he dropped his first Ace Crusher in Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall, the audience was appropriately blown away.

“The crowd cheered and then went into an awe, because they’d never seen a move like that before,” Laurinaitis remembered.

Big Johnny later showed Diamond Dallas Page how to perform the maneuver, which Page redubbed the Diamond Cutter. DDP, in turn, passed it on to Randy Orton.

Who invented the Sharpshooter?

The Sharpshooter has become so integral to Bret Hart’s “Excellence of Execution” persona that it’s hard to believe the “Hit Man” didn’t create the maneuver on a dark and stormy night down in the Hart Family Dungeon.
Truth is it was former South Korean Olympic wrestler and New Japan Pro Wrestling icon Riki Choshu that crafted the tendon-snapping maneuver. A legitimate ring legend in Japan, Choshu dubbed the submission “Sasori-gatame” when he invented it, which loosely translates to “Scorpion Hold.”
The name fit well when added to the arsenal of WCW’s Sting, who utilized the maneuver with great success as the “Scorpion Deathlock.” As Hart recounted in his fascinating biography, “Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling,” the maneuver was suggested to him by WWE official Pat Patterson. But it was Konnan then competing under the mask of Max Moon in WWE who showed him how to apply the hold.
In the years after Hart left WWE, the Sharpshooter was adopted by Trish Stratus, The Rock and Hart’s niece, Natalya.

Who invented the moonsault?

It takes a special kind of competitor to leap from the top rope and come crashing down on their opponent. But to do it blindly, with the added flair of busting out a complete backflip? Most folks would’ve developed a case of acrophobia pretty quickly.

It wasn’t a noted daredevil like Jimmy Snuka who created the moonsault, however, but Mando Guerrero, older brother of WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero. Trained in the high-flying art of lucha libre, the elder Guerrero dared to backflip off the top rope, creating a new starting point for later generations of aerialists, like The Great Muta, Ultimo Dragon and even Lita. With each passing year, young wrestlers are always adding new twists and turns to Mando’s innovative moonsault, literally taking sports-entertainment to new heights.

Who invented the powerbomb?

The footage is grainy now, but the moment is unmistakable. In a match from the early 1950s in New York City’s Madison Square Garden, storied grappler Lou Thesz grabs Italian highflier Antonino Rocca around the waist, yokes him into the air against his will and unceremoniously dumps his confused and overpowered opponent back on the mat.

In that instant, the powerbomb was born.

The bread and butter of ’90s big men like Kevin Nash, Vader and Sid, the debilitating throw has long been associated with super heavyweights. But it was the 228-pound former NWA Champion and pro wrestling cornerstone Thesz who innovated the maneuver.

A tireless trendsetter, the St. Louis native was also responsible for the creation of a pair of holds that carried two of WWE’s top Superstars to the WWE Title — “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Thesz Press and John Cena’s STF.

Who invented the Texas Cloverleaf?

One of the most effective submission holds a Superstar can use, the Texas Cloverleaf was made famous by Dean Malenko in the late ’90s. The Man of 1,000 Holds used the leglock to torture opponents into giving up, stretching every tendon between the neck and knees. He even inspired Sheamus to use the cloverleaf as his go-to hold after the Brogue Kick was banned. But while the Florida native made the move famous on a worldwide stage, it was another renowned grappler who invented this agonizing hold.

Second-generation star and WWE Hall of Famer Dory Funk Jr. is credited with the invention of the Texas Cloverleaf. A master of the mat already, Funk added the hold to his vast arsenal of submissions, which included The Funks’ famed Spinning Toe Hold. The Cloverleaf served Funk well, helping him capture the NWA World Title, along with many regional singles and tag team championships.

Who invented the Shooting Star Press?

High up on the list of sports-entertainment’s most dangerous maneuvers, the Shooting Star Press is a dazzling backflip executed from the top rope. Performed into a swimming pool, it would be impressive enough, but when nailed in the squared circle, it’s a thing of beauty.

Fearless airmen like John Morrison, Evan Bourne and Billy Kidman have used the dive with breathtaking accuracy. Brock Lesnar nearly ended his career with it at WrestleMania XIX when he failed to rotate completely and landed in ugly fashion on his forehead. But it was Japan’s Jushin “Thunder” Liger who gets credit for the daring move’s innovation.

A star in New Japan Pro Wrestling, Liger was a WCW regular for much of the ’90s. Still active today, the former WCW Light Heavyweight Champion no longer performs the Shooting Star Press, but he’ll always be revered as the genius behind the audacious dive.

Who invented the Figure-Four Leglock?

Invented by a “Nature Boy” and made famous by another, the Figure-Four Leglock has long been one of professional wrestling’s most infamous submission holds. In the 1950s, “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers was credited with the creation of the Figure-Four, where the executor of the hold twists his opponent’s legs into the shape of the number four, using his own legs to apply unbelievable amounts of pressure.

It was that hold that brought Rogers his greatest success as the first WWE Champion in 1963. After Rogers left the squared circle later that year, the Figure-Four was cribbed by a number of competitors, including Greg Valentine, Dusty Rhodes and Jeff Jarrett. They had varying degrees of success, but it was the next “Nature Boy” who made it famous. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair adopted the hold and forced countless foes to submit on his way to 16 World Championships.

Who invented the Frog Splash?

The Frog Splash is most closely associated with WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero, as he introduced the daring leap to American audiences in 1995, mimicking a frog’s jump before crushing his fallen foe’s sternum. But Guerrero wasn’t the creator of the amazing dive. It was his close friend and tag team partner, Art Barr.

Guerrero and “The Love Machine,” known collectively as either La Pareja del Terror or Los Gringos Locos, were the most hated duo in Mexico’s AAA promotion. Fans couldn’t help but admire Barr’s graceful finishing maneuver, though. After Barr’s untimely passing in 1994, Latino Heat adopted the Frog Splash as his trademark finisher a move that made him WWE Champion and a Hall of Famer.

Infograph » WrestleMania - CM Punk vs Undertaker - The Reign vs. The Streak [WWE.COM Report]
What happens when The Best in the World takes on the greatest streak in the history of sports-entertainment? CM Punk will find out as he challenges The Undertaker’s legendary WrestleMania Streak at The Show of Shows.

There are timeless Superstars, and then there’s The Undertaker. There are records, and then there’s The Streak. Both The Deadman and his 20-0 WrestleMania record transcend sports-entertainment. On April 7, Punk will face both of these mythical entities, all tangled into one man when he battles The Phenom on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Heading into WrestleMania, though, Punk will bring with him one of the all-time great years in WWE history. Amassing a 434-day reign as WWE Champion spanning the latter part of 2011 and the entirety of 2012, The Straight Edge Superstar is unlike any Show of Shows foe The Deadman has ever faced. Unconventional doesn’t even begin to describe him, as Punk will do everything he can to crawl inside his adversary’s head in an attempt to out-maneuver the master of mind games.

And so, at WrestleMania, two Superstars with unmatched track records will go toe-to-toe. But which will reign supreme — Punk’s title run or Undertaker’s Streak?


The Undertaker is an extraordinary figure in the history of WWE. He’s an entity whose very presence is so grandiose that his match at WrestleMania has become an event within an event and, in the minds of many, one of the most important parts of The Show of Shows.

Over the course of his two decades of WrestleMania dominance, The Deadman has faced giants and WWE Hall of Famers alike, putting down the likes of Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair and Triple H en route to amassing his staggering 20-0 record, a feat unmatched on any competitive stage.

434 days

Of course, CM Punk has some impressive credentials of his own. The longest WWE Championship reign of the modern era, his is a streak that lasted a staggering 434 days and saw the straight edge assailant defeat the likes of John Cena, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan and The World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show. Over the course of his historic reign, Punk survived Triple Threat Matches and a Hell in a Cell encounter against the monstrous Ryback, as well as battling an injury that ultimately led to knee surgery, all in an effort to live up to the haughty standards of being The Best in the World.

With title threats literally around every turn, to think that, in today’s WWE, Punk held onto championship gold for so long is almost unfathomable. But it will be that tenacity, that win-at-all-costs mentality that just may give Punk an edge against The Deadman at The Showcase of the Immortals.

But one cannot discount the effect of WrestleMania itself when the Chicago-made Superstar steps into the ring with its greatest performer.

X factor on The Grandest Stage

While Punk has defeated The Undertaker before, The Straight Edge Superstar has never faced The Phenom in his element. While he may hail from Death Valley, The Deadman’s true home is upon The Grandest Stage of Them All, an arena wherein even the greatest in-ring competitors have fallen short.

Take Shawn Michaels.

Heading into his WrestleMania XXV matchup with The Undertaker, HBK was undefeated against The Deadman on the pay-per-view stage — which is about as much momentum as one can hope to build against The Phenom.

As it turned out, that momentum meant nothing, as The Undertaker not only defeated HBK at The Showcase of the Immortals, but he would also go on to end Michaels’ career just one year later at WrestleMania XXVI. 

Such is the uphill battle CM Punk will face on April 7. Not only will he have to compete against one of history's greatest all-time great strikers — but he’ll also face down The Phenom at his most powerful. Will the legacy of Punk’s 434-day WWE Title reign serve as a metaphorical totem against the mythical aura of The Deadman?

If the N.Y./N.J. area seems like a natural fit for WrestleMania, the history of WWE's marquee event likely plays a pivotal role.

This year's edition of The Showcase of the Immortals will be the fifth to take place in the New York region, but the highly anticipated pay-per-view taking place on April 7 will look and feel a lot different than the editions of years past. A lot has changed since the opening bell rang at the inaugural WrestleMania in 1985, from the history being made on The Grandest Stage of Them All to the cultural impact of the most important night in sports-entertainment.

What else will be different when WrestleMania 29 takes place at MetLife Stadium? Check out the full version of the WrestleMania infographic by clicking on the image below
