"First things first, but not necessarily in that order."- The Doctor
I am a WWE Featured Columnist on B/R, and sites all over the internet have been featuring my quotes and comments for a couple of years now, including WWE.com and other news sites. I joined BR in 2008 with the goal of simply blogging about sports. As time went on and I grew with the site a hobby turned into a genuine interest in sports media. In my first three years I gained a little over a million reads. I have been able to multiply that over the last year by creating a unique brand for myself here on Bleacher Report. My title of The Doctor may have started as a reference to Doctor Who, but it has grown into more and now it has become my permanent nickname.
Check out my interview with Chicago Bears Rookie Tight End Kyle Adams here
I do my best to contribute anywhere I can in a positive way. I have organized and participated in fund raisers for Susan G Komen for the Cure and St. Judes Children's hospital and I recently chopped off my beautiful locks to donate to Locks for Love.
I am always open to being contacted so feel free to leave a note on the bulletin board or send me a message and I will do my best to respond quickly.
I finally broke down and signed up for Twitter, so follow me @BR_Doctor for news on WWE as well as my amusing take on the things going on in the world.
impossible to see older posts when viewing the live updates stream.
Doc, what is up with the new system? It doesn't show older posts from your excellent live updates and no Bueno Facebook for comments.
Hey doc, I've been reading your articles for wwe since I've began using the app and wanted to tell you thanks for being so consistent with it. I follow all sports and no other write seems to keep it as interesting as you or as well written as you, it truly is great how you keep up with all articles on every PPV, raw, and smackdown and help those who can't watch keep up with, and for that, I wanted to say thanks and from a fans view point, keep up the great work!
Huge fan of your writing and dedication to Bleacher Report. I wanted to commend your latest article ranking the current WWE entrances. Undertaker holds the spot for my favorite entrance of all time from any superstar but to be fair to the regulars I'd omit him from my list and say Finn Balor (Demon) has the best entrance with Nakamura with a close second. The excitement I get just watching them come to the ring is amazing. My 3rd favorite would probably be surprisingly TJ Perkins, after reviewing the superstars I found myself surprised how many times I kept coming back to him in mind when composing a list...his theme is so cool like a retro video game. 4th place goes to Bray Wyatt because it does a pretty good job capturing the mystique of his character. Rounding out my list, I'm including Sasha Banks---
She's my favorite female superstar and her music perfectly suits her BOSS style which the crowd loves everytime she makes an appearance (NXT TakeOver Brooklyn for example was incredible)!
Following your tournament ideas post... KoTR should be the main one imo, what are your thoughts on this? As i see it the job of this tournament should be not to jump someone straight into world or universal title mix, but instead highlight many talents who dont usually get much match/screen time and push them to the top of the mid card, potentially a guaranteed IC title match for the winner. And heres a way you could do it - Cross brand tournament, (maybe even cross promotion with the odd NJPW or RoH star, or an opportunity to call up an nxt stud...Hideo Itami for example).
The final four wrestlers left will compete on the KoTR ppv, (2 semi finals to start the show and the final which is the main event, also giving the iron man element to the winner)
It would most likely be a 16 man tournament, the stipulation being that to enter you must have never held the world or universal title.
Despite this stipulation the participants must earn their spot in the competition, meaning that making the tournament in itself is seen an achievement. You could have qualifiers on house shows or suddenly give meaning to the meaningless bouts so often seen on raw/sd, This would provide new purpose for many talents in the months before the ppv. From here the matches should be looked forward to and built up, even given main event spots on raw/SD. The potential is there then even for crossover main events with raw or SD stars appearing on the other show in a high stakes match up.
The whole tournament process should not be rushed and at the end should create a bonafide contender at the end of it similar to the G1 in NP. It should also be looked back on each year how the CWC is being talked about now, with guys that didnt win getting lots of exposure as well as the winner. If done right it should provide a wealth of great matches and elevated talent each year
Yo... You a cool dude.
Hey Doc, can you make an article about the forgotten awesome finishers which the WWE superstars used to use. For example like Styles using the spiral tap and styles crab, Brock lesnar using the Brock Lock, Sheamus using the Celtic Cross etc!
Who gave the best speech from the hall of fame last night and why?
Very written article but there are those that don't still get the point. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the product but others take it one step too far and bash others for liking or disliking a certain decision or wrestlers. There is even users on here who put their private life in the comment section which is not necessary. The fans will never be able to control the show but as a paying customer then we just be heard.
Last night's The Walking Dead was a good episode but of course a few things in storyline doesn't make sense to me. Of course I am not going to let it affect my life because it is a tv show. Same thing with WWE and there are still those that can't get that thru their head. Of course latelt Smackdown has been a better show than Raw but of course I'll still watch because it has always had a connection with me as a fan. If Ziggler never win another world title then it is not the end of the world. When Strowman is in the main event then you know how lousey Raw is being booked but fans just want the product to improve not get worst.
Hopefully you get to read this because I don't do social media because it is more terrible than good. Never been into twitter and the things people say on there is outrageous compared to the comment section on BR. Thank you for writing a good article and maybe everyone finally get the message that enjoy what WWE has given you and stop being so spoiled all the time about it.
Spot on with your most recent "Open Letter" article, Doc. I noticed that you're always the one writer not taking every little thing too seriously. You're often the only supporter I see of some of the more ridiculous segments, the others being far too rigid to see the humor.
