Thunder – April 12, 2000 (2015 Redo): A Clip From Earlier In The Future

Thunder
Date: April 12, 2000
Location: World Arena, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Attendance: 3,118
Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone

Now this is the interesting show for me as Monday was all about setting up this new world. This show is the first time where we get to see how things are going to work under the Russo and Bischoff regime. I thought Monday’s show was a disaster so maybe things can pick up tonight. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Thunder – April 12, 2000 (2015 Redo): A Clip From Earlier In The Future

John Cena Possibly Injured At House Show

This one doesn’t sound that serious, but not doing the post match stuff isn’t a good sign.  At least he was able to finish the match.  There’s a good chance he won’t be on Raw though and that’s fine considering Seth has a second opponent for the pay per view.

Happy Birthday Nitro!

The show is twenty years old today and dear goodness that makes my world feel like it’s crashing down around me.

Smackdown – September 3, 2015: I Approve Of These Developments

Smackdown
Date: September 3, 2015
Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida
Commentators: Rich Brennan, Jerry Lawler, Jimmy Uso

This seems like it’s going to be another midcard heavy episode as the main event players, save for the champion, who is arguably the lowest of the three people involved in the story, who is known to slum it here on Smackdown. The only major event announced is Lana and Dolph Ziggler appearing on MizTV. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Smackdown – September 3, 2015: I Approve Of These Developments

Ring of Honor TV – September 2, 2015: I Didn’t Think You Could Screw Up A Cheeseburger

Ring of Honor
Date: August 26, 2015
Location: William J. Myers Pavilion, Baltimore, Maryland
Commentators: King Corino, Kevin Kelly

We’re coming up on All-Star Extravaganza where Lethal will again have to defend both of his titles in one night. That is of course assuming he makes it out of tonight’s TV Title defense against the powerhouse Hanson, who is one of the many people in line for a shot at one of the belts. Let’s get to it.

Impact Wrestling – September 2, 2015: I Hated This Show

Impact Wrestling
Date: September 2, 2015
Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
Commentators: Josh Matthews, D’Angelo Dinero

It’s full on war now as the Global Force roster attacked several TNA wrestlers last week with Karen Jarrett revealing that she was behind the attacks on Drew Galloway and Bully Ray in recent weeks. In addition to the invasion, it’s almost time for Bound For Glory, which really hasn’t been set up yet. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Impact Wrestling – September 2, 2015: I Hated This Show

NXT – September 2, 2015: One More For Dusty

The focus goes back on the tag teams tonight as we begin the Dusty Classic. This is a tag team tournament for a prize to be announced and with most of the participants to be announced as well. The idea is to have the past, present and future of NXT involved to honor the spirit of Dusty Rhodes. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »NXT – September 2, 2015: One More For Dusty

Monday Nitro – April 10, 2000: Kevin Nash Said It Best

Monday Nitro #235
Date: April 10, 2000
Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
Attendance: 9,074
Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mark Madden, Scott Hudson

It’s kind of hard to preview this show as it’s all about the company being reset. Russo and Bischoff are coming in to a bigger reception than Hogan back in 1994 because they’re writers and therefore more important than anything else. Since WCW is stupid, this is also the go home show for Spring Stampede, which has nothing set up so far. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Monday Nitro – April 10, 2000: Kevin Nash Said It Best

Jimmy Snuka Charged With 1983 Murder

http://411mania.com/wrestling/jimmy-snuka-charged-with-murder/

 

This has been rumored for years now and it’s finally happening 32 years later. Snuka already has stomach cancer and there’s a good chance he could be going down for this too.  This has really been a bad year for 80s stars but this is a different kind of bad.
