WrestleMania 33 Poster

Sunday evening the WWE was in Orlando, Florida at Camping World Stadium for their version of the Super Bowl – WrestleMania 33. The world of professional wrestling revolves around this weekend as it includes not only the show on Sunday but a NXT show on Saturday evening as well as the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday evening. The class of 2017 inductees included Kurt Angle, Theodore Long, Diamond Dallas Page, Beth Phoenix, “Ravishing” Rick Rude and The … Continue reading

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

No Mercy (2016) – Misordered Main Event(s)

No Mercy (2016)

No Mercy took place on October 9th, 2016 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. This was a Smackdown branded PPV taking place just two weeks after Raw’s Clash of Champions. I watched this one nearly live (on a slight delay) with G. It’s been quite some time since Mark and I have gotten together to watch a show. This was up against the second presidential debate which turned out to be a doozy. Based … Continue reading

Backlash (2016) – New Era of SmackDown

Backlash (2016)

Sunday evening WWE was in Richmond, Virginia at the Richmond Coliseum for this year’s version of Backlash. This was the first PPV since WWE once again did a brand split and was the first show that was exclusive to the SmackDown brand. As I said back in June when the idea of twice monthly shows was being floated around I just couldn’t see myself watching ALL of these shows live. Sure enough at least when it came … 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

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

Night of Champions (2015) – Recap & Thoughts

Night Of Champions (2015)

Night of Champions is in the books. There were some decent matches on the card but overall I’ve got to say it was a pretty flat event. That stands to reason as the WWE is coming off one of its biggest PPVs of the year with SummerSlam and they’re in their “down time” of the year when they’re going up against Monday Night Football and other programming. As we do for every PPV, Mark and I got … 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
