Royal Rumble (2017) – Cena Ties Flair

Royal Rumble (2017)

The 2017 Royal Rumble took place on January 29, 2017, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. It marked the 30th anniversary of the event. I realize I’m WAY behind on my PPV recaps but there’s yet ANOTHER show this coming Sunday and I’ve had more than a few people ask me for this recap. NOTE: I have every intention of writing my reviews for Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, Tables, Ladders & Chairs … Continue reading

Clash of Champions (2016) – RAW PPV That Looks Like RAW

Clash of Champions (2016)

Clash of Champions took place on September 25, 2016 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. This was the first Raw branded PPV since the brand split and was the first known as “Clash of Champions”. The event was formerly known as Night of Champions. I’m finally getting around to posting my recap nearly two weeks after the event partly because I’ve been sick and partly because I didn’t watch the event until a couple … Continue reading

SummerSlam (2016) – Sunday Bloody Sunday

SummerSlam (2016) Poster

Last night WWE was in Brooklyn , NY this year’s version of SummerSlam. This is one of the WWE’s “Big Four” PPVs and I had really high hopes for the event. I even went so far as to make some predictions which I felt really good about. I don’t think I’m going to bother doing that any more cause even though I booked what I thought was a solid show I couldn’t have been more … Continue reading

SummerSlam (2016) Predictions

SummerSlam 2016 This Sunday

If you believe the WWE, its second biggest show (behind WrestleMania) takes place tomorrow evening live on the WWE Network from the Barclays Center in New York. Here’s a quick look at the announced matches and how I think they’ll play out. Cesaro vs. Sheamus Best-of-Seven Series Match #1 This one could really go either way. I’d be shocked if this doesn’t go the full seven so it really doesn’t matter who wins this first … Continue reading

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

Extreme Rules (2016) – Two Matches & The Rest

Extreme Rules (2016)

Last night the WWE was in New Jersey for this year’s version of Extreme Rules. There’s a special place in my heart these days for this PPV. A couple of years ago, my youngest son was born on the day of this event and I got to watch it from our hospital room that evening. Normally Mark and I get together to watch the shows but he called an audible to catch up on some much … Continue reading

Payback (2016) – The Dawn of a New Era?

Since WrestleMania, Shane McMahon has been in charge of WWE RAW and he’s been introducing new matches and new Superstars to the company so we got quite a few new faces here as well. Mark and I got together to watch the show as we always do and I have to say that overall I was very happy … 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
