The Road To Immortality Runs Through The Belly of The Beast!
So…a lot of things have happened since my last wallpaper. No wait, scrap that. Sh*t hit the f*cking fan since my last wallpaper. Batista’s return fell flat and The Animal is now in jeopardy of losing whatever stock he had coming in (which is a pity, because I like Dave, especially when he’s a heel), Cesaro dropped the Antonio and is now a potential WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and of course the granddaddy of all shockers – on a Steve Austin level of whatthef*cks – is CM Punk’s sudden departure from the company. WWE is in the center of a sh*tstorm that they personally hand-crafted, but hopefully Elimination Chamber will help set this train back on its much-needed tracks.
Do You Know What Time It Is?!
I promised you we’d have a wallpaper of the one they call ‘The Best In The World’, so here it is! This is a concept I’ve wanted to use for some time and I finally got around to making it. Everyone knows that CM Punk is a huge fan of superheroes, and since he starts each entrance with a top-of-your-lungs “It’s Clobberin’ Time!” which is ultimately inspired by The Thing, I figured I’d make a wallpaper that looked like something out of a comicbook!
A Spectacular Stage 30 Years In The Making!
2013 was already an awesome year for WWE, and what made it more insane was the way it ended; with the return of The Beast, Brock Lesnar, stating his hunger for championship gold, and the surrender of crowd-favorite Daniel Bryan to the methodical mental destruction of Bray Wyatt! We all know where this is leading, and we all know what time it is! It’s January, it’s a new year, and we’re now on the road to sports-entertainment’s greatest event, three decades in the making, WrestleMania 30!
One one side was Monday Night Raw. On the other was WCW Nitro!
2013 was a pretty great year, wasn’t it? So many exciting things happened in the world of pro-wrestling that it makes the anticipation for what 2014 has to offer almost unbearable. I thought I’d do something different this time around by making a retro wallpaper to cap-off the wallpaper line-up of the year. If you’ve been a wrestling fan for a while now, you surely know of WCW and the chaotic Monday Night Wars. It was brutal, it was cut-throat, and it was sports-entertainment at its best!
There Is Venom In His Blood, and Poison In His Veins.
So here we are at the end of a year gone by and at the edge of a new one. A lot has changed in WWE, but arguably the biggest landscape-changer of all is the long-awaited unification of the esteemed WWE and World Heavyweight Championship titles. Ever since WWE diluted the brand extension, it didn’t make much sense for two major champions to be walking around. As opposed to having the titles merge at WrestleMania 30 year, we now have one ultimate WWE World Heavyweight Champion in The Viper, The Apex Predator…Randy Orton!
On This Night, A Champion Of Champions Will Be Crowned! I pretty much hated the fact that I couldn’t make a Survivor Series wallpaper on time last month, so I decided there was no way I was going to skip this PPV as well. I’ve been very busy lately, but if Triple H’s promise is to be believed and if we will finally see one undisputed champion crowned at TLC, then this PPV deserves – no it needs! – to have its own wallpaper. Oh and by the way,...

Sometimes The Greatest Battles Are Won By Walking Straight Through Hell!
I’ve said this many times over the years; I don’t think a Hell In A Cell PPV is a good idea. I like the match to be special and reserved for the most intense of situations. Like when Triple H accepted The Undertaker’s challenge at WrestleMania 28, only to have it settled inside the vicious Hell In A Cell! It’s weird, but to me there are two types of Cell matches. The ones that take place on big PPVs are the real ones, and the ones that used to happen on Raw and in PPVs named after the match are usually the “lite” versions. Luckily, it looks like WWE have upped the ante and this year’s Cell matches look like the real f’n deal.
