Monday Nitro – March 26, 2001 – With Special Guest Stars, Vince and Shane McMahon!

Monday Nitro Date: March 26, 2001 Location: Boardwalk Beach Resort, Panama City, Florida Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson So in case you’re not getting the date or the significance, this is the final Nitro.

Smackdown – March 25, 2011 – Smackdown Goes International

Smackdown Date: March 25, 2011 Location: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio Commentators: Michael Cole, Josh Matthews, Booker T After last week’s awesome show we’re here at the last real show before the big one.  Next week is going to be a clip/review/highlight show which I can’t say I blame them for.  I’d want to get to […]

Wrestlemania 18 Date: March 17, 2002 Location: Skydome, Toronto, Canada Attendance: 68,237 Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross America the Beautiful: N/A Now this is a very interesting case.

Impact Date: March 24, 2011 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tazz Episode Title: Do the Math It’s another week in the Impact Zone after last week’s pretty awful show.  For some reason I have a better feeling about this show tonight.  I hope we don’t have another #1 contenders match tonight as […]

Monday Night Raw Date: January 11, 1993 Location: Manhattan Center, Manhattan, New York Commentators: Vince McMahon, Rob Bartlett, Randy Savage Well since it’s the anniversary of this, why not do it?

History of Wrestlemania with KB – Wrestlemania 16 – They thought this was a good idea?

Wrestlemania 2000 Date: April 2, 2000 Location: Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, California Attendance: 19,776 Star Spangled Banner: Lillian Garcia Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This whole show is an interesting one, and this is primarily for two reasons.

NXT – March 22, 2011 – I didn’t think it could get more boring

NXT Date: March 22, 2011 Location: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio Commentators: William Regal, Todd Grisham Ok so it’s week three now and there is nothing to say at all.  I mean really there’s nothing to talk about regarding this show that I haven’t said already.  The guys aren’t interesting, the wrestling is just ok and […]
