Money In The Bank (2018)

Money in the Bank (2018)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money In The Bank event live on the WWE Network at the Allstate Arena. It was the ninth event under the Money in the Bank chronology. I’m thrilled to say that WWE is back to monthly PPV shows rather than the oppressive twice a month schedule. That said I’ve cut WAY back on my wrestling viewing for a variety of reasons including being just too damn busy and quite frankly wrestling has … 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

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

WrestleMania 31 Final (?) Card & Predictions

WrestleMania 31 Poster

We’re just a couple of days away from WrestleMania 31 and I’m REALLY getting excited. Pip will (hopefully) be on the road making his way toward Cleveland tomorrow morning and our WrestleMania 31 Drinking Game is nearly finalized. I say hopefully as he woke up feeling shitty today… fingers crossed that he feels better in the AM. I’d started writing the post a couple of days ago and I’m glad I didn’t finish is as there’s … 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

Is The WWE Working Its Fans?

Vince McMahon

Is the WWE working its fans?  In a word… “Yes”. With the Royal Rumble last week, we’re now well on the Road To WrestleMania and the WWE machine is in high gear.  There have been several major developments in the WWE since the Royal Rumble, a show which many fans didn’t like.  I wrote a piece defending the Rumble, and with so much going on it’s time for another post. I’m going to attempt to … 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

The WrestleMania 30 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 30 Logo

WrestleMania XXX (or WrestleMania 30 for the Roman Numeral challenged) will take place on April 6th, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. For the 9th time, Pip and I (and returning for a 4th year in a row my brother Marko) will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. This will be the 6th time that we’ve … Continue reading

A Week Out From WrestleMania 29 – Current Card & Predictions

6 Days Till The Beeradmid Returns

We’re only 6 days from the Grandaddy of em all… WrestleMania 29!  Pip will be making his yearly trek to Cleveland on Friday morning and I’m giddy like a little school girl. Absolutely can’t wait!!!  If you’re a professional wrestling geek, this is the biggest week of the year.  It’s the end of the “season” and good God is it exciting.  Yes… I’m a geek.  I’ll own it. As per usual, we’ve been hard at … Continue reading
