Unforgiven 2003 (2018 Redo): The Pay Per View Version of Bad TV

Unforgiven 2003
Date: September 21, 2003
Location: Giant Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania
Attendance: 10,347
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

It’s another Raw exclusive pay per view, based around the idea of finding the least interesting story possible. Is it Shane McMahon and his electric testicles vs. Kane or a barely mobile HHH managing to drag out his second World Title defense against Goldberg? You know, that guy known for his long matches. There’s also the option of the battling announcers, which is always a big winner. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Unforgiven 2003 (2018 Redo): The Pay Per View Version of Bad TV

Smackdown
Date: September 18, 2003
Location: RBC Center, Raleigh, North Carolina
Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz

It’s a big show here with Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle in a one hour Iron Man match. What else can you really ask for here? These two are capable of putting together any kind of match you want them to and here they’ll have a chance to showcase whatever they want. The rest of the show….does it really matter? Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Smackdown – September 18, 2003 (2018 Redo): He Is Iron Man

Impact Wrestling – February 15, 2018: The New Version of the Same Old Stuff

It’s a big night here with Austin Aries defending the World Title against Eli Drake in a rematch from the impromptu title change two weeks ago. While I can’t imagine another title change, I do like the idea of Drake, who was a good champion, getting a regular title match instead of the thirty second version. Let’s get to it.

Commentators: Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness

The tournament continues this week with two more previously announced matches. This show has done a very good job of setting the tournament up and making me want to see it week to week. That’s a very positive sign for the show and if they keep this up, they might just fix the show. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »205 Live – February 13, 2018: The Power is the Point

Armageddon 1999: It Was Good Once

Armageddon 1999
Date: December 12, 1999
Location: National Car Rental Center, Sunrise, Florida
Attendance: 17,054
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

I’ve done this show before but it was so long ago and the review isn’t up to my standards so here’s a fresh version. The main event here is HHH vs. Vince McMahon after HHH married the drugged Stephanie McMahon earlier in the year. This is also one of the first pay per views after Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara left, meaning things could be in a bit of a shift. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Armageddon 1999: It Was Good Once

What does it say when this is one of the shows I’m looking forward to more than almost any other during the week? Well actually it says that I’m in for an entertaining hour, which is always nice to hear. We’re coming up on the 16th Anniversary Show and that means we need a pay per view card. Let’s get to it.

We’ve got another packed show this week with two title matches on tap. First up the Women’s Title is on the line as Ember Moon defends against Shayna Baszler in a rematch from Takeover: Philadelphia. After that, Pete Dunne defends the United Kingdom Title against Roderick Strong. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »NXT – February 14, 2018: Roses Are Red, Violets Aren’t Blue, OW MY ARM!

Monday Night Raw – September 15, 2003 (2018 Redo): I’m Not Sure I Can Forgive This

Monday Night Raw
Date: September 15, 2003
Location: Carolina Coliseum, Columbia, South Carolina
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

It’s the go home show for Unforgiven and just like Summerslam, that can’t come early enough. The shows haven’t exactly been thrilling as of late and I don’t see that getting any better tonight. At the moment, the problem comes down to the show having almost every direction wrong, which doesn’t bode well as we head towards the pay per view. Let’s get to it.

Mixed Match Challenge

Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Beth Phoenix

It’s week….I’m not even sure at this point. Five maybe? Anyway tonight it’s the husband and wife duo of Rusev/Lana vs. Elias/Bayley in a match that seems like it would have a much better build than execution. The last few matches have been a lot of fun so hopefully the trend continues tonight. Let’s get to it.

Smackdown – February 13, 2018: The Right Way to the Wrong Place

Smackdown

Location: Rabobank Arena, Bakersfield, California
Commentators: Corey Graves, Byron Saxton, Tom Phillips

It’s another big match tonight, even if the match doesn’t make a ton of sense. Tonight’s main event is Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin with the winner being added to the Fastlane triple threat for the Smackdown World Title, making it a four way. Now why this makes sense when Ziggler vacated the US title and walked off isn’t clear, and I’d be surprised if we get an explanation. Let’s get to it.
