The Best of 2017 From 406Northlane

Best of 2017

Since back in 2010 I’ve been doing these retrospective entries. Before we get too far into the year I wanted make sure I knocked this one out. As I said in my previous post I’ve been a terrible blogger recently and my yearly output of only 24 posts shows just how true that statement is. This is down from 79 posts in 2016 and 80 in 2016. I still plan on backdating a few movie reviews and … Continue reading

Official WrestleMania 33 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 33 Logo (2017)

WrestleMania 33 will be held on April 2, 2017 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. 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 in 2009, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. It’s pretty tremendous to be able to look back at the … Continue reading

No Mercy (2016) – Misordered Main Event(s)

No Mercy (2016)

No Mercy took place on October 9th, 2016 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. This was a Smackdown branded PPV taking place just two weeks after Raw’s Clash of Champions. I watched this one nearly live (on a slight delay) with G. It’s been quite some time since Mark and I have gotten together to watch a show. This was up against the second presidential debate which turned out to be a doozy. Based … 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

Backlash (2016) – New Era of SmackDown

Backlash (2016)

Sunday evening WWE was in Richmond, Virginia at the Richmond Coliseum for this year’s version of Backlash. This was the first PPV since WWE once again did a brand split and was the first show that was exclusive to the SmackDown brand. As I said back in June when the idea of twice monthly shows was being floated around I just couldn’t see myself watching ALL of these shows live. Sure enough at least when it came … Continue reading

More PPVs Coming From WWE?

NXT Takeover The End Promo

There’s a lot of content for WWE fans these days. Quite frankly, there’s too much content and from the sounds of things there’s about to be even more. Way back in June of last year I wrote a post called I Missed WWE RAW This Week & I Don’t Care. In that post I pointed out how the WWE was in a stretch where there were four PPVs in a stretch of 50 days. According to … 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

Payback (2016) – The Dawn of a New Era?

WWE Payback 2016

Last night the WWE was in Chicago for their first PPV since WrestleMania 32 known as Payback. Since WrestleMania, Shane McMahon has been in charge of WWE RAW and he’s been introducing new matches and new Superstars to the company so we got quite a few new faces here as well. Mark and I got together to watch the show as we always do and I have to say that overall I was very happy … Continue reading

WWE Network Now Charging Taxes

WWE Network

Remember when the WWE Network mentioned that one time how it would cost only $9.99 per month? You know… that one time. If you blinked you might have missed it. Yes. I’m joking. The WWE went out of their way to tell us about 3,720 times per episode of RAW that the Network would only cost $9.99 per month. And that was the case since day one… until now. I just got my monthly statement … 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
