Payback (2016) – The Dawn of a New Era?

WWE Payback 2016

Last night the WWE was in Chicago for their first PPV since WrestleMania 32 known as Payback. Since WrestleMania, Shane McMahon has been in charge of WWE RAW and he’s been introducing new matches and new Superstars to the company so we got quite a few new faces here as well. Mark and I got together to watch the show as we always do and I have to say that overall I was very happy … Continue reading

WrestleMania 32 (2016) – Bigger. But Better?

WrestleMania 32 Poster

Sunday evening, the WWE rolled into Arlington, Texas and AT & T Stadium and put on their version of the Super Bowl – WrestleMania 32. This is the weekend that the world of professional wrestling revolves around as it only only includes what has become a day long event (more on that later) but also a NXT show on Friday night and the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday night. 2016 inductees included Sting, … Continue reading

Fastlane (2016) – Speed Bump To WrestleMania

Fastlane (2016)

Last night the WWE rolled into my home town of Cleveland, Ohio for it’s monthly PPV – Fastlane. We’re well on the Road to WrestleMania with the big show only 41 days away as of this writing. WWE has been dealing with rash of injuries of late including John Cena, Seth Rollins, Sting, Cesaro, etc. Mark and I had the chance to go to this show but we decided to pass for a variety of reasons. … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015) – Epic Rebound!

TLC 2015

Last night, the WWE held its annual TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs event at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. This was the 7th annual event. Last year, TLC was held in Cleveland and Mark and I were in attendance. The WWE has been putting out some pretty piss poor programming of late and last month’s Survivor Series was no exception. In fact, things have been so bad that with the exception with one month when the … Continue reading

Survivor Series (2015) – 25 Years Of Taker… I Guess

Survivor Series (2015)

Last night, the WWE held its annual Survivor Series event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. This was the 29th annual event and it marked the 25th anniversary of the debut of my all time favorite wrestler The Undertaker. Before I get into my recap I want to address one thing. On the day before the event the FBI announced that they were investigating an alleged threat by ISIS against the arena. They released a statement that read, “The … 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 29 In The Books – Recap & Thoughts

WrestleMania 29 Poster

WrestleMania 29 is in the books as is our yearly Beeramid.  Full recap and pics of THAT event coming shortly.  For now, I want to take a look at the PPV itself and give some thoughts and feedback. The pre-event build was actually pretty piss poor this year.  The WWE really didn’t do anything all the special to build to their biggest show of the year and it showed.  That said, I think they KNOW … Continue reading

A Week Out From WrestleMania 29 – Current Card & Predictions

6 Days Till The Beeradmid Returns

We’re only 6 days from the Grandaddy of em all… WrestleMania 29!  Pip will be making his yearly trek to Cleveland on Friday morning and I’m giddy like a little school girl. Absolutely can’t wait!!!  If you’re a professional wrestling geek, this is the biggest week of the year.  It’s the end of the “season” and good God is it exciting.  Yes… I’m a geek.  I’ll own it. As per usual, we’ve been hard at … Continue reading

A Perfect Time For A John Cena Heel Turn

John Cena In Pink

I’ll preface this post by saying I don’t really think it’s going to happen… but DAMN would it be awesome. This isn’t the first time I’ve called for a John Cena heel turn and in all honesty it probably won’t be the last.  Sure, he’s the poster boy for the company.  Sure he’s wrapped head to toe in pink pimping breast cancer awareness.  But I think this weekend at Hell In A Cell would be … Continue reading
