Is Sting ACTUALLY the Dumbest Babyface of All Time? A Fanfyte Investigation

Though Sting has, with his run in AEW, absolutely cemented his status as a living legend of professional wrestling, he’s still haunted by his past. A past that has routinely been the subject of ridicule for decades. What is this ghost that I speak of? His reputation for being an…

Tokyo Joshi Pro’s Summer Sun Princess was a Coming of Age Show

By any measure, July 18th’s Summer Sun Princess was a landmark show for Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling. Not only was the crowd at Ota City Ward Gymnasium even larger than 2021’s Wrestle Princess II, it was noisier. Earlier in July, TJPW’s sister company, DDT, tested lifting pandemic-related cheering restrictions, and…

‘Prey’ Review: The Best Predator Movie Since, Well, Predator

2022 has been a remarkable year for maximalist filmmaking, for big, colorful visuals and loud, expressive sound design. Most of my favorite movies this year have been overstated, from the rip-roaring action and emotion of Everything Everywhere All at Once and RRR, to the IMAX spectacle of Top Gun: Maverick…

Logan Paul on Law and Order Special Victims Unit: A Review

At SummerSlam, Logan Paul proved there’s only room for one successful YouTube star in this house, and despite the views on USA Network, it sure isn’t the Miz. Given his rousing performances at dual WrestleManias and his SummerSlam victory, it was unsurprising when Paul signed a contract with WWE, promising…

Jungle Boy Calling Christian Cage a Pussy: A Review

In short, I hate it. For months, Christian Cage has bodied a mostly-absent Jungle Boy on the mic, insulting his deceased father Luke Perry and offering to sleep with his mom. It’s been great. Seriously. I’m a big fan of Christian, particularly as a heel, and his turn as a…

Worth the Wait: Bayley, Dakota, and Iyo Usher in a New Women’s Division

SummerSlam marked the first premium live event under the watchful eye of Triple H, with Vince McMahon kicked to the curb faster than you can say “multiple pending lawsuits.” With a whirlwind of company developments churning behind the scenes, the prospect of a HHH-lead WWE was already enticing. His tenure…

RoboCop Is An All-Time Great Satire

RoboCop is fantastic. It’s a classic piece of satire, a phenomenal 80s sci-fi-action masterpiece, and one of Fernanda’s all time favorite movies. So, you can probably guess where it might end up on You Love To See It store shelves! As always, you can listen to the show in the…

Vince McMahon Navigated Controversy for Decades. What Changed in 2022?

What took so long? Seriously, what took so long? There have been so many WWE scandals — whether specific to Vince McMahon or more broadly — that counting them all becomes a ghoulish exercise with a quickness. That’s doubly so because it’s way too easy just to rattle off scandals where…

‘Bullet Train’ Review: Hyperverbal and Hyperviolent

The best way to describe Bullet Train is that it’s extremely “from the director of Deadpool 2.” David Leitch is one of the founders of the 87North production company, itself an offshoot of 87Eleven Action Design, the collective of stunt performers and choreographers whose sensibilities have defined the past decade…

How Does One Write About Professional Wrestling?

It’s not easy to write about pro wrestling. Despite being the artform itself being around as a popular form of entertainment for over a century, it feels like the actual practice of writing criticism about pro wrestling is only in its infancy. A large factor in this is how pro…

Wheeler YUTA and Daniel Garcia Take the ROH Pure Title Into the Future

ROH has had a love-hate relationship with the Pure division.

Because of this, the belt could be conceivably presented as of equal importance to the World…
