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

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

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

Battleground (2016) – The SHIELD Triple Threat

Battleground (2016)

Sunday evening the WWE was in Washington, D.C. for this year’s version of Battleground. I started watching the event late (at around 10:00) with my boys as we’d just gotten back from a weekend trip to Niagara Falls with the family. Mark and his family stayed an extra day at the Falls so once again we didn’t watch the event together. Believe it or not, it’s been since WrestleMania 32 that we’ve been with one another … Continue reading

Money In The Bank (2016) – Night of The SHIELD

Money in the Bank (2016)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money in the Bank event live on the WWE Network. I, like the majority of the people in Cleveland, was busy watching our Cleveland Cavaliers pull off the impossible and coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the franchise’s first NBA championship. This was the first event in quite some time that Mark and I haven’t watched together which is sort of a bummer, but I’ll … Continue reading

Extreme Rules (2016) – Two Matches & The Rest

Extreme Rules (2016)

Last night the WWE was in New Jersey for this year’s version of Extreme Rules. There’s a special place in my heart these days for this PPV. A couple of years ago, my youngest son was born on the day of this event and I got to watch it from our hospital room that evening. Normally Mark and I get together to watch the shows but he called an audible to catch up on some much … 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
