Smackdown – August 31, 2012: A Less Silly Show Makes It Much Better

Smackdown Date: August 31, 2012 Location: Resch Center Arena, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Josh Matthews After last week’s huge mess, hopefully Smackdown can turn things around tonight. Last week was one of the worst shows I can remember in a long time, which is a shame as I used to love Smackdown. Anyway, […]

Impact Wrestling – August 30, 2012: One Of The Best Impacts Ever

Impact Wrestling Date: August 30, 2012 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Taz Tonight is likely to be about Aces and 8’s again, but they really need to talk about the PPV. If my math is right, there’s only one match announced, and that’s the finals of the BFG Series, which may or […]

NXT – August 29, 2012: And NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW NXT Champion…..

NXT Date: August 29, 2012 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Byron Saxton, William Regal It’s time for the title match tonight and I’m actually somewhat excited.

Monday Night Raw Date: December 3, 2001 Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Vengeance and the star of the show is still Vince.

D-Von Apparently Finished With TNA

That’s the word at the moment.  Odds are this means we’ll have a new TV Champion or the title will be vacated.  It’s not like D-Von was doing much with it anyway though.   Thoughts on this?

Monday Night Raw – November 26, 2001: This Show Is An Embarrassment To Wrestling Fans

Monday Night Raw Date: November 26, 2001 Location: The Myriad, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler Well after last week we’re in a brand new era for WWE as we have Vince and Flair as co-owners of the company. Vince had his mind blown to end Raw last week and Austin is now […]

Daniel Bryan’s Anger Management And Why It Was A Good Idea

This was a segment on the show last night and if you haven’t checked it out, please do so.  There are three parts to it and the final part with Kane giving his life story is some of the funniest stuff I’ve heard on Raw in at least the past year.  But there’s something else […]

Monday Night Raw – August 27, 2012: For Reasons That Aren’t Fully Explained, This Show Was Just Ok

Monday Night Raw Date: August 27, 2012 Location: Bradley Arena, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler The focus tonight is going to be on Punk, at least in theory. He attacked Lawler last week which will probably set up a match between the two of them because the WWE solution to a heel turn […]

Monday Night Raw Date: November 23, 1998 Location: Schottenstein Center, Columbus, Ohio Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler After last week’s show we have a lot of stuff to deal with.
