So, are the stories in WWE wrestling on par with the ridiculousness of the stories of the wrestlers from the game Rumble Rose? Because if so I need to see some of this! (You're the only fan of wrestling I know I need your expertise)

Well from what I know in Rumble Roses, it’s usually big anime tiddies and some stipulations involving the girls in some pseudo-sexual event.

WWE stories may not be quite as ridiculous and outlandish as they were in the 90s (Redneck bald guy saves a Corporate boss’s daughter from a satanic marriage ceremony in front of thousands of witnesses is a good example) but the personalities and athleticism of the wrestlers are definitely interesting in their own right.

Like a guy from Ireland who started the most popular wrestling stable in Japan only to come to WWE and turn into a demon during his biggest matches.

The team who started off getting booed before growing on the fans and are a genuine joy to watch in the ring and on the mic (and also sponsored FFXIV)

Doomsday's Favorite Wrestlers: A 2013 List

ACH

ACH burst into the major Indy scene this year, establishing himself in places like PWG and signing to ROH where he quickly became a fan favorite. Whether it’s his attitude, high flying ability or even DBZ, video game, and comic book references, he’s quickly embraced wherever he goes. 

AR Fox

One of the best workhorses of the Indy scene today, AR Fox never disappoints when it comes to risking it all in every match he has. Whether it is in DGUSA/EVOLVE, CZW, Beyond Wrestling, or PWG, h makes it his goal to either steal the show or shock and awe. He’s one of the top guys to look out for in 2014.  

Kevin Steen

One of the biggest draws in Indy wrestling, today. People continue to love him for being an asshole who loves to run his mouth. From his in-ring antics, to his Weekend Escapades (insert link), or his “Kevin Steen Show”(found on Highspots), people love to see him. His build and ability is what ultimately draws him and is why he’s my favorite wrestler. 

Prince Devitt

Prince Devitt became a heel in a big way this year. Dumping his tag team partner and establishing arguably one of the best heel stables in wrestling today, The Bullet Club. His ability is what draws, but his heel tactics developed this year is an added bonus. 

Yujiro Takahashi

He’s a personal favorite of mine. A brash and cocky heel. His stint in the G1 Climax is what ultimately sold me on him as not only is he a very capable wrestler but oozes charisma. Him walking down the ramp with a different pair of girls every night, his antics with random ladies in the crowd, his overall swagger on the mic.

Daniel Bryan

I was hoping he’d hit it really big in 2013 and he did. Established himself as one of the top faces in the company and the most over. Catchphrases galore as well as a new finisher. He’s been one of the most consistent workers in the WWE, today. 

Sami Zayn

He’s one of the main reasons I watched NXT in 2013. His matches were always something to look out for every since he debuted on NXT TV. Whether he captures the NXT Title, gets called up to the WWE main roster or both, 2014 is poised to be a big year for him if 2013 is any indication. 

Adam Cole

Whether it is ROH or PWG, he is one of those guys that are “must-see”. Virtually sitting at the top of the Indies at the moment, his matches with the likes of Kevin Steen, Sami Callihan, Drake Younger, Michael Elgin, and Kyle O'Reilly have shown that he his arguably the best. 

Kyle O'Reilly

O-O-O-O'Reilly!!!!!!! Tag team champion in ROH and one of the best in PWG. His technical skill martial arts background is only rivaled by few in the Indies as well as the “Big Leagues”. Next to Adam Coles, his star burns the brightest and he’s going to burst into 2014 in a big way. 

Drew Gulak

One of the most respected technical, hard-hitting wrestlers today, this has been a great year for Drew Gulak. From his matches in Beyond Wrestling and DGUSA, to his CZW Heavyweight Championship run, it’s hard to over look him now. 

Johnny Gargano

Johnny Gargano has had some great matches this year. From his match with Shingo in April for DGUSA, to his matches with Kevin Steen and Roderick Strong in PWG, to his most recent match against a debuting Chris Hero in November for DGUSA. One of those guys deemed as the future of the business which is a rightful claim.

Kappas, roughly translated as “river children,”  are river and lake dwelling creatures from Japanese folklore known for their bowl shaped head, trickery, and knack for manners. Do not let their turtley-physique fool you, as these creatures’ feet are as quick as their wits, especially if cucumbers are present. 

Kappas appear different regionally, but are generally depicted as humanoid turtle/frog beasts, making them excellent swimmers. Kappas are one of the few species where a moist bald spot is hot stuff; a Kappa stores the water of the river they call home within the small divot on the crown of their head as their source of power. If a Kappa leaves its river and its bowl goes dry, the Kappa will lose its power and possibly die. 

Their relationships with humans can be anywhere from fun to fearsome, with personalities ranging from flatulent jokester to murder-bent river-rapist. They go about their days passing gas, looking up women’s kimono’s, kidnapping children, or drowning and raping women. All in a days work for the Kappa. They’re also known for drowning livestock and wrestling horses in stables. That said, Kappas are very interested in human culture and custom, as they know fluent Japanese and adore good manners. It is said the easiest way to subdue a Kappa is by bowing as low as you can, as the Kappa must bow lower to be properly courteous, resulting in the spilling of the water from his brain-bowl. Or if you lack proper flexibility, challenge it to a wrestling match. If all fails, throw a cucumber its way, a food said to be more satisfying than children (or so I am told). 

(Wonderful Kappa art by the incredible Sarah!)

So this whole thing with Seth Rollins has me thinking.  If a male fan here on tumblr went and did the things people are upset at him for, wouldn’t the majority of you all be ALL OVER that person for it?  He would be completely excommunicated from the fandom and he wouldn’t be able to even apologize to get back in anybody’s good graces (because let’s be real, fandoms and communities will bring the sky upon offenders until there’s nothing left). I know for a fact if I liked that picture and I went here posting it laughing, I would lose all of my followers in a blink.  You guys certainly wouldn’t be like “DAMN HE JUST LIKED A PICTURE, LEAVE HIM ALONE.”  I’m certain of this because i have seen people here do it time and time again whenever someone disrespects female wrestling fans, or women wrestlers.  And Seth did both.  And after he apologized for his previous comment, he goes and likes a picture that pretty much says “HEY PAIGE AND AJ LEE ABANDONED THEIR LIFE LONG DREAMS FOR PENIS, LOLOLOL.”  Again, ya’ll would kill ME for saying that, liking that, reblogging that, laughing at that, anything that promotes support of that flawed idea.  Which by liking the pic, is what Seth DID.  Accept it. 

Sure I’m not a indie darling or a former WWE champion or a former part of one of the most bad ass wrestling stables ever, but why do those facts make Seth Rollins suddenly untouchable and not responsible for bullshit that he does or says?  The fact he’s an ACTUAL pro wrestler should have us holding him to the utmost standards when it comes to his opinion on his female peers and then ones that cheer him on as well.  So can we as a community, actually hold him accountable for things that we would hate to hear ourselves saying?  Please?
