Money In The Bank (2016) – Night of The SHIELD

Money in the Bank (2016)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money in the Bank event live on the WWE Network. I, like the majority of the people in Cleveland, was busy watching our Cleveland Cavaliers pull off the impossible and coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the franchise’s first NBA championship. This was the first event in quite some time that Mark and I haven’t watched together which is sort of a bummer, but I’ll … Continue reading

Fastlane (2016) – Speed Bump To WrestleMania

Fastlane (2016)

Last night the WWE rolled into my home town of Cleveland, Ohio for it’s monthly PPV – Fastlane. We’re well on the Road to WrestleMania with the big show only 41 days away as of this writing. WWE has been dealing with rash of injuries of late including John Cena, Seth Rollins, Sting, Cesaro, etc. Mark and I had the chance to go to this show but we decided to pass for a variety of reasons. … Continue reading

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

Rumbling Toward Mania This Sunday

Royal Rumble 2016 Preview

First I’ve got to apologize. Well, I’m apologizing to my readers who aren’t wrestling fans. My blog becomes VERY wrestling centric this time of year and that will continue all the way through WrestleMania season in April. You’ve been warned. Quite frankly, this is the best time of year to be a wrestling fan. The Road to WrestleMania officially kicks off on Sunday evening at the 2016 Royal Rumble. The Rumble is traditionally my second … 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

WrestleMania 29 In The Books – Recap & Thoughts

WrestleMania 29 Poster

WrestleMania 29 is in the books as is our yearly Beeramid.  Full recap and pics of THAT event coming shortly.  For now, I want to take a look at the PPV itself and give some thoughts and feedback. The pre-event build was actually pretty piss poor this year.  The WWE really didn’t do anything all the special to build to their biggest show of the year and it showed.  That said, I think they KNOW … Continue reading
