Finally, The Shield has returned to our pro wrestling lives! There’s not a tremendous amount in Vince McMahon’s version of sports entertainment that generates genuine excitement these days. It’s not that the talent isn’t there, because the roster is loaded, it’s varied, and it’s incredibly skilled. The writing is often stagnant, the ideas stale, the… Read more »

September Was the Most Dominant Month In Outkick History

Outkick the Coverage - September Was the Most Dominant Month In Outkick History

Hate to brag, but I’m pretty sure Outkick just pulled off the first fivesome in sports media history in September.

Outkick the Coverage - Blade Runner 2049 Review

We’re going to need to be careful with this Blade Runner 2049 review, folks. I’ve never attended a press screening with more rules provided before and after as to what I can and can’t say about the story, characters, or the movie itself.

Tom Petty Made Life Better

Outkick the Coverage - Tom Petty Made Life Better

You have yours, because we ALL have one. My own tale is incredibly special to me. Again, as I said about Bobby Heenan, I’m not someone that will lay out Petty’s iconic four decade career in the same way someone like Steven Hyden would, so I urge you to read his piece over at UPROXX.… Read more »
