Sunday evening the WWE was in Orlando, Florida at Camping World Stadium for their version of the Super Bowl – WrestleMania 33.

Yeah… I Might Need To Buy This

Cavs WWE World Title Belt

I’m a bit of a pro wrestling fan. I’m a bit of a Cavaliers fan. If you know me at all, you know that both of those are complete understatements. So when I saw this tweet from WWE COO Triple H you can imagine my glee: An unprecedented comeback and a long overdue @NBA Championship… THAT is something to celebrate. Congrats @cavs! pic.twitter.com/dPmnnR6mP3 — Triple H (@TripleH) June 20, 2016 To steal a line from … Continue reading

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

Royal Rumble (2016) – Mania Takes Shape

Royal Rumble 2016

Last night, the WWE held its annual Royal Rumble event at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The Rumble is thought of as the beginning of the “Road to WrestleMania” and is traditionally one of my favorite PPVs of the year. The last two years have seen some pretty serious morning after backlash with Batista winning in 2014 and Roman Reigns (and not Daniel Bryan) winning last year. I realize as I sit down to write … Continue reading

Rumbling Toward Mania This Sunday

Royal Rumble 2016 Preview

First I’ve got to apologize. Well, I’m apologizing to my readers who aren’t wrestling fans. My blog becomes VERY wrestling centric this time of year and that will continue all the way through WrestleMania season in April. You’ve been warned. Quite frankly, this is the best time of year to be a wrestling fan. The Road to WrestleMania officially kicks off on Sunday evening at the 2016 Royal Rumble. The Rumble is traditionally my second … 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 Final (?) Card & Predictions

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

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

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
