Impact Wrestling – June 30, 2011 – Two Good Impacts In A Row. No You’re Not Dreaming.

Impact Wrestling Date: June 30, 2011 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tazz We continue the build towards Destination X tonight with another triple threat qualifying match. Other than that we’ll likely see more of Sting being insane and staring at Anderson. The show was a lot better last week than it’s been […]

WWF Invasion – Let It Begin

Invasion Date: July 22, 2001 Location: Gund Arena, Cleveland, Ohio Attendance: 17,964 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jim Ross So this is easily the most requested show since I’ve stated doing the reviews so I might as well get it out of the way. This is the infamous INVASION of the WCW/ECW Alliance. Since I’ve already explained […]

NXT – June 28, 2011 – Best NXT Match In A Very Long Time

NXT Date: June 28, 2011 Location: US Airways Center, Phoenix, Arizona Commentators: William Regal, Todd Grisham It’s another elimination week to get us down to the final two which will hopefully end soon after that.  The final three are Darren Young, Conor O’Brian and Titus O’Neil.  It seems like the competition is Titus’ to lose […]

Monday Night Raw – June 27, 2011 – Well….Punk Isn’t Happy Is He?

Monday Night Raw Date: June 27, 2011 Location: Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler It’s Raw Roulette tonight, meaning Spin the Wheel Make the Deal for you old school WCW fans.  In short it’s a lot of gimmick matches, determined by a likely rigged wheel.  We’re building towards Punk […]

ECW On Sci-Fi – June 13, 2006 – Debut Episode, Complete With A Zombie

ECW on Sci-Fi Date: June 13, 2006 Location: Sovereign Bank Arena, Trenton, New Jersey Attendance: 5,100 Commentators: Joey Styles, Taz So this is the debut of ECW on Sci-Fi which I found online out of boredom. Since I’m getting dangerously close to the end of the ECW PPVs, I figured I’d do the first and […]

Smackdown – June 24, 2011 – This All Seems Really Familiar

Smackdown Date: June 24, 2011 Location: Giant Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania Commentators: Josh Matthews, Booker T, Michael Cole First show after Capitol Punishment which will likely see more continuation in Orton vs. Christian.  Other than that it’s kind of hard to say as there aren’t many other big time feuds going on this show.  Maybe some […]

Impact Wrestling – June 23, 2011 – Best Wrestling Show This Week. Seriously.

Impact Wrestling Date: June 23, 2011 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tazz It’s likely another show building towards Destination X here which means we’ll probably get another triple threat with guys brought in.  That’s a cool idea as it lets you see guys you usually wouldn’t see having some pretty fun matches.  […]

Starrcade 1993 – File This Under One Match Shows

Starrcade 1993 Date: December 27, 1993 Location: Independence Arena, Charlotte, North Carolina Attendance: 8,200 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Jesse Ventura This is a rather interesting show for a few reasons. First and foremost other than the main event, it’s one of the most awful shows you’ll ever see. Second of all, the main event was changed […]

NXT – June 21, 2011 – Ryder Is Still On The Internet

NXT Date: June 21, 2011 Location: Giant Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania Commentators: Todd Grisham, William Regal It’s week whatever here (It’s week whatever here) and there are no signs of us getting done with this show yet.  We have three people left in the forms of O’Brian, O’Neil and Young.  Other than that there isn’t much […]
