No More Wrestling Content on Vortex Effect

WWE Logo

We started this site in April 2011 and the very first post was a wrestling post.

Overtime, the site has shifted more and more towards video games and the wrestling took a back seat, mostly. The initial audience we had for wrestling stuff left, seemingly not caring about all the gaming stuff that was dominating (can't say I blame them). Likewise, not too many of our current readership cares about the wrestling content. So, while Vortex Effect remains a hybrid site of gaming and movies, and even sports occasionally, there will be no more wrestling content here (unless its about a video game). Why are sports allowed and wrestling has to … [Read more...]

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down Smackdown 2/28/14: Batista Turns Heel

WWE ended February and probably the biggest week in company history in a long time on a lackluster note. The February 28th episode of Smackdown started off with the full heel turn of Batista and concluded with yet another six man tag team main event. Sandwiched in between was very little meaningful content, but nevertheless there were some high notes for the show as well. - The Real Americans vs. Big E & Mark Henry: I'm torn on the story with the Real American's because they are my favorite tag team in a period when WWE was finally starting to get the division going and has seemingly pulled the wrong out from under it. On one hand, I don't want to see Cesaro and Swagger break up because they should be dominating the tag division. On the other hand, there's no denying that Cesaro is … [Read more...]
