The WrestleMania 32 Beeramid – Return To Form

WrestleMania 32 Beeramid

WrestleMania 33 is just a matter of weeks away taking place on April 2nd, 2017. As has been the case for the last several years Pip will once again make the trek to CLE and we’ll rekindle our relationship with the one and only… Beeramid. As we do every year we’ll also come up with a drinking game to help us along the way and as I sat down tonight to start putting that together … Continue reading

The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was WrestleMania 32

Wrestlemania 32 Weekend

I’ve got a rule. I won’t go to Indy for my yearly trip until I blog about the previous Pip / Chewie weekend. Well, I’ve broken that rule since I’m writing this recap after I returned to Indianapolis. What can I say… bad blogger. As I write this recap I’m realizing that not only did I not do our yearly recap, but I never even got around to writing my Beeramid recap for this year. Apologies … 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

What’s Changed With Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns

We’re less than 2 months removed from Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015). At that PPV, Roman Reigns lost his match to Sheamus and then absolutely went berserk after the match beating the holy hell out of the League of Nations, Sheamus and HHH to a thunderous ovation. The crowd was actually chanting, “Thank you Roman!” The next night, Reigns captured the heavyweight championships in one of the best RAWs we’ve seen in recent memory. The overwhelming … 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 32 will take place on April 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Once again this year, Pip, Mark and I will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. Starting way back with WrestleMania 25 Drinking game, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. I have to say it’s awesome to be able to look back at … Continue reading

Sting To Enter WWE HOF In 2016

Sting 2016 WWE HOF

It was just announced that Sting will be the first member of the 2016 WWE HOF Class. With this honor, Sting becomes the only man to be in both WWE and the TNA HOF, but let’s be honest… no one gives a shit about the TNA HOF and this is the only hall that matters. In reality, the WWE HOF is the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. The 2016 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony … Continue reading
