On This Day: August 31, 2012 – Smackdown: Back When Sandow Was Losing In Longer Matches

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, […]

Thunder – April 9, 1998: The Chris Jericho Show

Thunder Date: April 9, 1998 Location: Leon County Civic Center, Tallahassee, Florida Commentators: Lee Marshall, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan We’re still rolling through NWO a-go-go here with Hogan, Savage and Nash in a three way war for control of the team. Sting is still an afterthought and the midcard guys are still stealing the show […]

Smackdown – August 30, 2013: The Eruption Is Coming

Smackdown Date: August 30, 2013 Location: Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield We close out August with Daniel Bryan on a bad run of luck. For four straight shows now he’s been left laying by Randy Orton and the new Corporation, but luckily for him the fans are […]

On This Day: August 30, 2010 – Monday Night Raw: You Don’t Look A Day Over 890

This is very old and not very well done.   Monday Night Raw Date: August 30, 2010 Location: TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler It’s the 900th episode and Raw and Smackdown both will be there. Surprisingly enough this is only a two hour show though. There hasn’t been much announced for […]

On This Day: August 29, 2012 – NXT: Crowning A 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. This change officially turns NXT into its own regular promotion which is what it needed for the last year and a half or so. It’s Jinder […]

ECW on TNN – March 10, 2000: In Search Of A New Wrestling Mastermind

ECW on TNN Date: March 10, 2000 Location: ECW Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Attendance: 1,500 Commentators: Joel Gertner, Joey Styles It’s the go home show for Living Dangerously and the main story….is up for debate actually. It could be Dreamer and Tanaka winning the tag titles on a fluke last week. It could be (and likely […]

Impact Wrestling – August 29, 2013: Screw The Rules, Play The Series

Impact Wrestling Date: August 29, 2013 Location: Wolstein Center, Cleveland, Ohio Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tazz The news of the week is the BFG Series is wrapping up tonight before the September 12 No Surrender special. Apparently six weeks isn’t long enough to have 66 matches and amazingly enough, TNA didn’t catch on to that idea. […]

Thought of the Day: Booking vs. Writing

This is something that will make perfect sense if you watch NXT, which you should.

ECW on TNN – March 3, 2000: ECW Can Bend Time And Space

ECW on TNN Date: March 3, 2000 Location: The Rave, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Attendance: 2,250 Commentators: Joey Styles, Joel Gertner This show has to be better that last week’s. Literally, it’s not possible to produce a show worse than last week’s so soon thereafter. We still don’t have anything announced for the PPV which is in […]

NXT – August 28, 2013: Here An Idea, There An Idea, Everywhere An Idea

NXT Date: August 28, 2013 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Tony Dawson, William Regal After last week’s great match between Zayn and Cesaro we’re needing a new #1 contender. We’ve seen a showdown teased between Sami and Dallas for awhile now so that might be the best possible option. Either way NXT […]
