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

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

I Missed WWE RAW This Week & I Don’t Care

WWE RAW

I’ll preface this by giving my professional wrestling “credentials”. I’ve been watching pro wrestling for more than 30 years. I can remember watching WWF and AWA with my grandfather when I was 6 and 7 years old. I remember a time when there were only 4 PPVs a year. Hell, I remember a time BEFORE pay per view. I remember a time when we didn’t have access to wrestling 24 hours a day 7 days … 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

The WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 29 Logo

WrestleMania 29 will take place on April 7th, 2013 in East Rutherford, New Jersey at MetLife Stadium.  For the 8th time, Pip and I (and returning for a 3rd 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. No roman numerals this year?  Not sure, but at this point, ever reference to the show … Continue reading

Chewie’s WrestleMania 26 Recap

WrestleMania 26 Poster

WrestleMania XXVI is in the books and I have to say it was a very good offering overall.  Quite frankly this is the type of show I wish they had last year for the 25th anniversary.  It wasn’t anything mind blowing but it was a very solid event from top to bottom. Showmiz vs. Morrison & RTruth – This was a decent opener.  I didn’t really surprise me that they kept the straps on Showmiz.  … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 26 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 26 Poster

WrestleMania XXVI will take place on March 28th in Arizona.  I’m happy to say that after working through some logistical issues, Pip and I will once again renew our Beeramid tradition!  As with years past, we have created these “rules of engagement” which will help us to construct that glorious structure. The last time Pip and I got together we came dangerously close to “one night one case” and I’m thinking March 28th just may … Continue reading

WrestleMania 25 Recap – Lackluster Show With A Couple Of Standouts

WrestleMania 25 Logo

Pip, my brother and I got together and carried on our tradition of watching WrestleMania together.  This was the 25th anniversary of the show so were expecting big things and a great show.  What we got (with a couple of exceptions) was neither.  Overall I’d have to say it was a pretty bad show with just a couple of high spots – certainly not what we were expecting from the biggest show of the year… … Continue reading
