Fastlane (2019) – On the Road to WrestleMania 35

Fastlane (2019)

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I started writing this post WEEKS ago and I’m just getting around to finishing it. I still need to write my WrestleMania 35 recap but I’m writing this from the perspective that I haven’t seen Mania. Last Sunday night the WWE held its fifth annual Fastlane event right here in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena. I had no intention of actually going to the event but my brother … Continue reading

Royal Rumble (2019) – The Road Begins

Royal Rumble 2019

Last Sunday night the WWE held its 32nd annual Royal Rumble event at  Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. For the second year in a row the event fell on the first day of my company’s national sales event so I wasn’t able to watch it live. I eventually ended up watching it Wednesday evening with my bro after spending a few days trying to stay away from social media and results. Overall I’d say it was a decent show but … Continue reading

Battleground (2017) – Punjabi Prison Returns

Battleground 2017 Poster

Battleground (2017) was a SmackDown brand event that took place on July 23, 2017, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the fifth event under the Battleground chronology. I’ve been VERY bad at blogging in general and more specifically doing my PPV recaps. This is the first recap I’ve done since WrestleMania 33 back in April but honestly that’s cause I really haven’t been watching them. Summer has been busy as usual and with the fact that there were several PPVs … 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

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
