Smackdown – June 30, 2016: The Leftovers

Smackdown Date: June 30, 2016 Location: American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga, Byron Saxton We’re running out of Smackdowns on Thursday nights as we only have two more weeks before heading over to the live world for a major change. It’s also interesting to see how things go without Roman Reigns […]

New Column: Matt And Jeff’s Broken Feud

I really don’t like this thing.

NXT – June 29, 2016: Compelling Wrestling Television

NXT Date: June 29, 2016 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves We’re back to one of the things NXT does best as there’s a major match in a few weeks and a few things in between to tide us over. Tonight we have Carmella vs. Alexa Bliss, which has […]

Monday Nitro – February 5, 2001: After All This Time

Monday Nitro #276 Date: February 5, 2001 Location: Bankcorpsouth Center, Tupelo, Mississippi Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone Things are starting to build up towards SuperBrawl and the unbelievably fresh MEGA SHOWDOWN between Scott Steiner and Kevin Nash because that’s what’s going to get the young’uns talking about WCW as they walk through the airport. If […]

Impact Wrestling – June 28, 2016: Now Let The Big Boys Play

Impact Wrestling Date: June 28, 2016 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: D’Angelo Dinero, Josh Matthews Things are getting interesting around here as there are only two more weeks until Smackdown moves to Tuesday nights, leaving Impact with an hour against a live WWE show with top names appearing every week. There has been no […]

Monday Night Raw – June 27, 2016: Holes In Limbo

Monday Night Raw Date: June 27, 2016 Location: Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton We’re getting closer to Battleground but things have changed a bit because of Roman Reigns’ suspension. It should be interesting to see if that’s actually referenced during the show as they could just as easily […]

Lucha Underground – June 22, 2016: All Hail The King

Lucha Underground Date: June 22, 2016 Location: Lucha Underground Temple, Boyle Heights, California Commentators: Vampiro, Matt Striker We’re just a few weeks away from Ultima Lucha Dos and a lot of the card still needs to be set. The official length hasn’t been announced yet but the rumor says four hours over three weeks, which […]

Ring of Honor TV – June 22, 2016: Go Home New Japan

Ring of Honor Date: June 22, 2016 Location: Ted Reeve Arena, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Kevin Kelly It’s the go home show for Best in the World and my guess is that means it’s time to talk about the Bullet Club instead of anything related to the upcoming pay per view. I mean, […]

Thunder – January 31, 2001: I Think I Feel A Stupid Plan Coming On

Thunder Date: January 31, 2001 Location: Baltimore Arena, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone I’m running out of things to say about these intros. We have less than two months to go in this company and it’s most likely a skippable B-show with a main event between two midcarders who don’t have an interesting […]

Smackdown – June 23, 2016: The Smackdown Gravestone

Smackdown Date: June 23, 2016 Location: Tucson Arena, Tucson, Arizona Commentators: Byron Saxton, Mauro Ranallo, David Otunga It’s an interesting time in WWE as we’re less than a month away from the new era really taking hold as the Draft takes place and separates the two shows into different entities. On top of that though, […]
