(Album Review) “Firepower” by Judas Priest

The long-awaited and highly anticipated release of the the 18th full-length album from Judas Priest comes in the shadow of the sad discovery regarding Glenn Tipton's health condition. The good news is that “Firepower” is a very successful attempt by the Metal Legends to revisit their past glory with a modern sound.

So since he isn't willing to do business you give him a false finish and screw him out of the title. This is a scenario that can't be scripted, it couldn't possibly have been a worked storyline.... or could it? In this article we will discuss the rivalry between Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, and Vince McMahon both inside and outside of the ring. We begin with the early times in the career of both Hart and Michaels, both men had great careers that should be covered in great detail. These two men's legacies are NOT solely defined by what happened on that N...
