Royal Rumble (2016) – Mania Takes Shape

Royal Rumble 2016

Last night, the WWE held its annual Royal Rumble event at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The Rumble is thought of as the beginning of the “Road to WrestleMania” and is traditionally one of my favorite PPVs of the year. The last two years have seen some pretty serious morning after backlash with Batista winning in 2014 and Roman Reigns (and not Daniel Bryan) winning last year. I realize as I sit down to write … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015) – Epic Rebound!

TLC 2015

Last night, the WWE held its annual TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs event at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. This was the 7th annual event. Last year, TLC was held in Cleveland and Mark and I were in attendance. The WWE has been putting out some pretty piss poor programming of late and last month’s Survivor Series was no exception. In fact, things have been so bad that with the exception with one month when the … Continue reading

Survivor Series (2015) – 25 Years Of Taker… I Guess

Survivor Series (2015)

Last night, the WWE held its annual Survivor Series event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. This was the 29th annual event and it marked the 25th anniversary of the debut of my all time favorite wrestler The Undertaker. Before I get into my recap I want to address one thing. On the day before the event the FBI announced that they were investigating an alleged threat by ISIS against the arena. They released a statement that read, “The … Continue reading

Hell In A Cell (2015) – Recap & Thoughts

Hell In A Cell (2015)

Hell In A Cell is in the books. Looking back, my impression is that this was overall a pretty flat event with a couple of stand out moments and a hell of a main event. We got a big surprise return and they set a couple of story lines in motion which is always a good thing as we head toward the end of the year and the Road To WrestleMania. They did a nice job of … Continue reading

Night of Champions (2015) – Recap & Thoughts

Night Of Champions (2015)

Night of Champions is in the books. There were some decent matches on the card but overall I’ve got to say it was a pretty flat event. That stands to reason as the WWE is coming off one of its biggest PPVs of the year with SummerSlam and they’re in their “down time” of the year when they’re going up against Monday Night Football and other programming. As we do for every PPV, Mark and I got … Continue reading

SummerSlam 2015 – Poorly Booked Main Events

SummerSlam 2015

SummerSlam 2015 is in the books and for the most part it was a pretty outstanding event. I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of matches and even though it was a 4 hour even which I think is WAY too long for anything but WrestleMania it didn’t feel like it dragged on too much. Though to be fair, my brother and I started watching the show at 8:00 and zipped through ring entrances and … Continue reading

WrestleMania 31 Recap & Thoughts

WrestleMania 31 - Fireworks

WrestleMania 31 is in the books and boy was it a doozy. The reaction I’m reading on the Interwebs ranges from “Best Mania of all time” to “The show sucked except for the last 5 minutes”.  I guess it just goes to show you that regardless of how WWE decides to book a show they’ll never be able to keep everyone happy.  Overall I thought it was an above average show, far better than we’ve … Continue reading

Defending The 2015 Royal Rumble

Royal Rumble (2015)

The 2015 Royal Rumble is in the books and for the second year in a row I find myself in a position where I feel I have to defend the show the following morning. Just like last year, the winner of the Royal Rumble (this year Roman Reigns) was met with a chorus of boos in the arena that even the returning Rock couldn’t fix.  My Twitter timeline and what seems like the majority of … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs… Oh My – Live From Cleveland!

TLC 2014 Poster

The WWE held their annual TLC – Tables – Ladders – Chairs PPV last night in Cleveland and Marko and I were in attendance! Ever since the WWE Network was launched we’ve been getting together on a monthly basis to watch the PPVs but with this one being in our home town we decided to get tickets and be there live. Overall it was a very enjoyable show and it was super exciting to be … Continue reading

Defending The Royal Rumble On The Road To WrestleMania 30

Royal Rumble 2014

The 2014 Royal Rumble is in the books and judging by the chorus of boos in the arena, my Twitter timeline and early stuff on the web, there are a slew of pissed off wrestling fans this morning.  I have to say that I’m definitely not one of those pissed off fans.  The show gave us just what most people expected and set up some great things moving forward. Recap & Thoughts PRESHOW: The New Age … Continue reading
