Battleground (2017) – Punjabi Prison Returns

Battleground 2017 Poster

Battleground (2017) was a SmackDown brand event that took place on July 23, 2017, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the fifth event under the Battleground chronology. I’ve been VERY bad at blogging in general and more specifically doing my PPV recaps. This is the first recap I’ve done since WrestleMania 33 back in April but honestly that’s cause I really haven’t been watching them. Summer has been busy as usual and with the fact that there were several PPVs … 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

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

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 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 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

WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game Results

WrestleMania 29 Set

For those following along with the WrestleMania 29 Drinking Game shenanigans, this post is for you.  We’ve been putting together yearly WrestleMania drinking games since WrestleMania 25, but just last year did we start keeping track of the results of said game. With that, I give you the results of this year’s Beeramid inducing game: For the purposes of our official picks, we included the Miz / Barrett match from the YouTube pre-show giving us a … Continue reading
