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 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

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

Just Remember Folks… Randy Stopped The Rapture

Macho Man Stops The Rapture

Two years ago today Randy “Macho Man” Savage passed away after having a heart attack behind the wheel of his car.  I had a note on my calendar because I wanted to remember Randy’s passing.  After all, I’m a wrestling nerd and he is / was one of my all time favorite superstars. What I did NOT remember, was two years ago today was the day when the world was supposed to end in the … Continue reading

AJ Lee – Looking For Her Nature Boy?

AJ Lee & Ric Flair

WrestleMania 29 tickets are on sale which I know based on the 3 different emails I’ve received from the WWE today.  And even though I won’t be going to the show, opting instead for a return trip with the Beeramid, what these emails did do is get me in a wrestling mind frame… time for a prediction. One of the major story lines in WWE these days is the John Cena / AJ Lee “romance”.  If … Continue reading

Long Term Booking: The Rock & John Cena At WrestleMania 30

The Rock & John Cena

So this year’s WrestleMania main event was set a full year in advance.  One day after WrestleMania 27, The Rock and John Cena took to the middle of the ring on RAW the next night and set the stage for this year’s main event.  And while some people (myself included) haven’t really enjoyed a year-long build to this year’s Mania main event, I have a suspicious feeling that this is just the tip of the … Continue reading

Finally… A Heel Turn For Cena?

John Cena & Zach Ryder

I don’t do predictions all that often (at least out loud) but I think I’ve got one that’s worthy of sharing.  For months now, WWE fans (or at least “smart” fans) have been shouting from the rooftops for John Cena to turn heel. As we all know, he’s headed into WrestleMania 28 to face The Rock and there’s simply no way in hell that Cena’s going to be the babyface in that match.  The WWE … Continue reading

My Bound For Glory Picks

Bound For Glory

I just got done watching Thursday night’s Impact Wrestling.  One of my favorite wrestling podcasts/websites, The FTW Podcast always gives their picks for upcoming PPVs.  As you know, TNA is having their flagship PPV this weekend called Bound For Glory.  If you’re not familiar with TNA or this particular PPV it’s the most important/biggest PPV for this organization (similar to the way WrestleMania is for the WWE but not nearly as well known). In any … Continue reading
