Fastlane (2019) – On the Road to WrestleMania 35

Fastlane (2019)

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I started writing this post WEEKS ago and I’m just getting around to finishing it. I still need to write my WrestleMania 35 recap but I’m writing this from the perspective that I haven’t seen Mania. Last Sunday night the WWE held its fifth annual Fastlane event right here in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena. I had no intention of actually going to the event but my brother … Continue reading

Royal Rumble (2019) – The Road Begins

Royal Rumble 2019

Last Sunday night the WWE held its 32nd annual Royal Rumble event at  Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. For the second year in a row the event fell on the first day of my company’s national sales event so I wasn’t able to watch it live. I eventually ended up watching it Wednesday evening with my bro after spending a few days trying to stay away from social media and results. Overall I’d say it was a decent show but … Continue reading

Survivor Series (2018) – Raw Domination

Survivor Series 2018 Feature

Sunday night the WWE held its 32nd annual Survivor Series event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.  For the third year in a row this show pitted Raw vs. Smackdown in a sort of brand supremacy battle which turned out to be no battle at all with Raw getting a win in every match (except for the kickoff match which we didn’t watch). I was glad to have my partner in crime (my brother) back with me … Continue reading

WWE Evolution (2018) – Ladies Night

WWE Evolution (2018)

I’m WAY behind on my PPV recaps but I really enjoy doing them so even though Survivor Series is right around the corner (this Sunday, November 18th) I’m going to go back and recap the last show WWE Evolution (2018). The event took place on October 28th, 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York. It was the WWE’s first ever all women’s PPV event and I have to say I really enjoyed the show. Mark was … Continue reading

Money In The Bank (2018)

Money in the Bank (2018)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money In The Bank event live on the WWE Network at the Allstate Arena. It was the ninth event under the Money in the Bank chronology. I’m thrilled to say that WWE is back to monthly PPV shows rather than the oppressive twice a month schedule. That said I’ve cut WAY back on my wrestling viewing for a variety of reasons including being just too damn busy and quite frankly wrestling has … Continue reading

Elimination Chamber (2018) – Slow Road To Mania

Elimination Chamber 2018

Lots of wrestling on the site lately… what can I say, it’s WrestleMania season and I’m keeping up with my promise to myself to stay more on top of things (and to write more). It sort of shocked me when I looked back and saw just how far behind I am when it comes to PPV recaps. This is the first one I’ve done since Battleground in August and only the second since last year’s … Continue reading

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

Clash of Champions (2016) – RAW PPV That Looks Like RAW

Clash of Champions (2016)

Clash of Champions took place on September 25, 2016 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. This was the first Raw branded PPV since the brand split and was the first known as “Clash of Champions”. The event was formerly known as Night of Champions. I’m finally getting around to posting my recap nearly two weeks after the event partly because I’ve been sick and partly because I didn’t watch the event until a couple … 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
