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

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

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

WWE Encyclopedia Updated & Expanded

WWE Encyclopedia (2012)

To say I’m behind on my blog here would be an understatement. I just went through and cleaned up my drafts. (IE, removed stuff that I’d started and won’t bother finishing because it’s no longer topical or relevant). I’m still left with over 50 drafts. And that DOESN’T include at least a dozen or so that I know are coming but I’ve not officially started. All of that said, I figured tonight is as good … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015) – Epic Rebound!

TLC 2015

Last night, the WWE held its annual TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs event at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. This was the 7th annual event. Last year, TLC was held in Cleveland and Mark and I were in attendance. The WWE has been putting out some pretty piss poor programming of late and last month’s Survivor Series was no exception. In fact, things have been so bad that with the exception with one month when the … 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
