Survivor Series (2019) – NXT is the Third Brand

2019 Survivor Series

Last weekend the WWE held its 33rd annual Survivor Series event at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. It’s been quite some time but my brother and I got together to watch the show (with my boys in tow until their bedtime). If I’m being honest I’ve not watched much wrestling at all lately. I never watch Smackdown and while I record Raw every week I can’t tell you the last time I sat down … Continue reading

What’s Changed With Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns

We’re less than 2 months removed from Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015). At that PPV, Roman Reigns lost his match to Sheamus and then absolutely went berserk after the match beating the holy hell out of the League of Nations, Sheamus and HHH to a thunderous ovation. The crowd was actually chanting, “Thank you Roman!” The next night, Reigns captured the heavyweight championships in one of the best RAWs we’ve seen in recent memory. The overwhelming … 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

The Problem With #RAWlternative

RAWlternative

The WWE’s Royal Rumble will be held this Sunday, January 25th. That means we’re officially on the Road To WrestlMania 31 and the blog here tends to take on a professional wrestling tone for a couple of months. Many fans have been less than happy (for good reason) with the product that the WWE has been producing in recent months. Some have even created an alternative to RAW known as #RAWlternative. And even though they’ve … Continue reading

Jerry Springer On RAW – Another Bad Idea From WWE

Jerry Springer On RAW

I really don’t like to be a complainer.  Honestly… I don’t. I watch professional wrestling (WWE & TNA) because I enjoy the product. I hate to be one of those guys that does nothing but bitch and I always try to find the good in any story line or angle.  But this shit has to stop. The WWE apparently has woken up in the mid 90s because they’re promoting the fact that Jerry Springer… yes, … Continue reading

Wrestling Into The Future – WWE Network A No Brainer?

WWE Network

For years now we’ve been hearing rumblings about the WWE Network. Would it be a cable channel?  Would it be a streaming service?  We finally have the details about the network, what it’s going to be, when it will launch and from a wrestling fan’s perspective… how damn awesome it will be! WWE Network will be a 24/7 streaming network which will include original content, archive content from WWE, WCW, AWA, ECW (and others), RAW … Continue reading

The Overbooking Of Hell In A Cell

Undertaker, Shawn Michaels & HHH

As you know by now, HHH and The Undertaker will once again be facing off at this year’s WrestleMania, this time in a Hell In A Cell match.  The WWE has upped the ante one step further by adding Shawn Michaels to this match as the special guest referee.  That’s a very bad decision in my book… and here’s why. First, I’ll preface this by saying I’m a HUGE fan of the Undertaker.  On any … 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

The WrestleMania 28 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 28 Logo

WrestleMania XXVIII (28 for you non-Roman numeral folks out there) will take place on April 1, 2012 in Miami, Florida.  For the 7th time, Pip and I (and for the second year in a row, my brother Marko too!) will once again try to “walk that aisle” and build… The Beeramid. Since WWE announced it’s Mania main event the day after last year’s show (Rock vs. John Cena for those not paying attention), I figured … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 27 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 27 Logo

WrestleMania XXVII (27 for those not versed in Roman numerals) will take place on April 3rd, 2011.  I’m thrilled to report that Pip and I will once again renew tradition and construct… The Beeramid.  Just as in past years, we create a set of “rules” that will govern that evening’s events. Without further adieu… it’s on. 5 drinks for a People’s Elbow 3 drinks for any unannounced legend that’s in attendance 5 drinks for any … Continue reading
