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

WrestleMania 32 (2016) – Bigger. But Better?

WrestleMania 32 Poster

Sunday evening, the WWE rolled into Arlington, Texas and AT & T Stadium and put on their version of the Super Bowl – WrestleMania 32. This is the weekend that the world of professional wrestling revolves around as it only only includes what has become a day long event (more on that later) but also a NXT show on Friday night and the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday night. 2016 inductees included Sting, … 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.

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
