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.

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

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

SummerSlam 2015 – Poorly Booked Main Events

SummerSlam 2015

SummerSlam 2015 is in the books and for the most part it was a pretty outstanding event. I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of matches and even though it was a 4 hour even which I think is WAY too long for anything but WrestleMania it didn’t feel like it dragged on too much. Though to be fair, my brother and I started watching the show at 8:00 and zipped through ring entrances and … Continue reading

The Undertaker At Battleground & RAW? Not Good

Undertaker Workout

I’m going to preface this post by saying that the Undertaker is my favorite wrestler of all time. Speculations is running rampant on the Interwebs that The Undertaker will be making his return to WWE either at this Sunday’s Battleground PPV or the following evening on Monday Night RAW. These rumors are fueled by photos such as this one of Taker working out and candidly… looking better than he has in years. This is a very very bad … Continue reading

It’s a match that wrestling fans have been clamoring for for years… decades even. Sting Vs. The Undertaker The Icon vs. The Phenom WCW vs. WWE For years this match was nothing but a pipe dream as Sting had stayed away from the WWE for his entire career. But when he decided to finally enter a WWE ring there was a glimmer of hope. Then Sting went on to face HHH (and lose) at WrestleMania … 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
