• Former ECW champ Justin Credible posted a new blog at www.PWMania.com.
Credible talks on Ted DiBiase Jr.’s WWE departure, Monday’s Raw, AJ Styles’ TNA contract, Ring of Honor and more.
Matt Striker and Rick Cataldo are guests on Justin Credible’s Pro Wrestling 101 video series.
Here is an excerpt from The Justin Credible Report:
“I was really surprised that Ted DiBiase Jr. will not be resigning with WWE. It’s not like he has a lot of options in the wrestling business. There has to be more to this than meets the eye. I mean he has everything that WWE looks for. He’s talented, young, good physique, and he’s a third generation wrestler. I know he hasn’t been on TV in a while, but he had tremendous upside and even starred in a WWE movie. It speaks volumes to me about how things are from a performer’s perspective on the main roster. I’m sure he will be back in WWE at some point in his young career.”

• Former WWE Official Wes Adams posted a column at www.PWMania.com, discussing the importance of music in wrestling. He analyzes WWE, WCW, ECW and indie theme music, writing on the differences between the styles. H
Here is an extract from Official's View with Wes Adams:
“While I was driving today and going through my CD collection, I came across WWE Anthology Vol.2: The Attitude Era and popped it in. As I was listening, I got to thinking about the importance of music in the wrestling business. More specifically, the importance of entrance music to the wrestling business, and the importance of having GOOD or GREAT entrance music and the effect it can have on a wrestler’s pop (or lack thereof).
“But what’s the criterion for that? Everybody has their own opinion on what’s good or bad as far as music goes. But I would think that we could all agree on these three things: 1. the song has to have a good opening riff (10-20 seconds) to give a good buildup for the soon to be popping out of the curtain wrestler. 2. the song needs to fit the wrestlers gimmick and (most importantly) 3. the song just has to not suck. Wrestling themes can be so epically good (Ultimate Warrior’s Unstable), epically bad (Billy/Chuck “Yoooouuuu looooook sooooooooo…….goooood to me”) or so bad that they’re good (William Regal’s Real Man’s Man).”

• Former WWE NXT superstar Briley Pierce and Dolph Ziggler’s brother, Ryan Nemeth has published a new “Truth or Dare” column at www.PWMania.com. Nemeth talks about meeting professional wrestling legend Johnny Cadillac Nilson (aka The Squirt).
Here is an excerpt from his first entry:
“I recently had the good fortune of meeting professional wrestling legend Johnny Cadillac Nilson [aka The Squirt] and chewing the proverbial fat with him. As many wrestling fans fondly recall, Nilson was a staple in what is now referred to nostalgically as ‘The Territory Days’ of professional wrestling. His legendary feuds with the likes of Salt ‘n Pepper Sylvester Shuster and Danny Jack in the Box Cartwright live on in the memory-laden halls of in-ring history. Encountering The Squirt face-to-face was truly a once-in-a-lifetime event. Sadly, The Squirt passed away just weeks before this piece could be published. With his widow Carla Jean’s permission, I present it here now.”
