NXT – May 31, 2011 – More Wrestling Than Impact. Seriously.

NXT Date: May 31, 2011 Location: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa Commentators: Todd Grisham, Michael Cole Another elimination tonight and I have a feeling it’ll be Saxton because that’s the guy that doesn’t need to be gone.  O’Brian will continue to be around and waste all of our time because he has no character […]

Monday Night Raw Date: May 30, 2011 Location: Qwest Center Omaha, Omaha, Nebraska Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Josh Matthews, Michael Cole Three weeks out from Capitol Punishment and we now have some new stories set up.  It’s looking like we’re setting up some form of Truth vs. Cena at the PPV which is probably the best […]

Heat Wave 1998 Date: August 2, 1998 Location: Hara Arena, Dayton, Ohio Attendance: 4,376 Commentator: Joey Styles So apparently it’s ok to have no pay per views over the entire summer as it’s been three months since Wrestlepalooza.

Smackdown Date: May 27, 2011 Location: Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, Spokane, Washington Commentators: Michael Cole, Booker T, Josh Matthews We’re past Over the Limit now and it should be interesting to see where this goes.  After the rather awesome Christian vs. Orton match it’s possible they could go for a third match there but at […]

Impact Wrestling – May 26, 2011 – Screw This Company. Or Maybe Just Velvet.

Impact Wrestling Date: May 26, 2011 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tazz It’s the second week of Impact Wrestling and hopefully tonight we’ll have a bit more actual wrestling rather than last week when there was as much on a regular episode of Impact.  Anyway we’re also going to have some more […]

NXT Date: May 24, 2011 Location: Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, Spokane, Washington Commentators: Todd Grisham, William Regal It’s week like 12 or so but we’re FINALLY down to five people.  Hopefully tonight we’ll get the announcement that we’re going to go down to four in the near future.  If nothing else it’s almost a guarantee […]

Monday Night Raw Date: May 23, 2011 Location: Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Josh Matthews We’re past Over the Limit and after another Cena torture porn movie he’s still WWE Champion.  Also Jerry Lawler finally got his revenge on Cole in a humiliating defeat.  Tonight we’ll start building towards Capitol Punishment […]

Over the Limit 2011 Date: May 22, 2011 Location: KeyArena, Seattle, Washington Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Booker T, Josh Matthews, Michael Cole It’s Over the Limit again which was a totally worthless show last year which is about what I’m expecting this year.  The main event is Miz vs. Cena in an I Quit match while […]
