Main Event – November 22, 2016: Please Let It Be Here To Stay

Main Event Date: November 22, 2016 Location: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, David Otunga I’m hoping that being past Survivor Series isn’t going to change this show’s rather entertaining run. A lot of acts weren’t on Smackdown this week so it should be interesting to see what we get for original […]

WCPW Loaded Episode 5 Date: August 8, 2016 Location: 02 Academy, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England Commentators: Alex Shane, Dave Bradshaw This is What Culture Pro Wrestling, which is a promotion created by Whatculture.com, a pop culture site with a bunch of top ten lists and such.

Impact Wrestling – November 24, 2016: No Thank You

Impact Wrestling Date: November 24, 2016 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Josh Matthews, D’Angelo Dinero It’s a holiday show and that means a lot of things could happen.

NXT – November 23, 2016: Thank You NXT

NXT Date: November 23, 2016 Location: Air Canada Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves This is a special episode as we’re past Takeover: Toronto and since there hasn’t been time for a full taping, this show was filmed before Saturday’s show, meaning this is again in a huge arena.

Monday Night Raw Date: June 24, 2002 Location: Gund Arena, Cleveland, Ohio Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler Thank goodness we’re past the miserable King of the Ring and that means it’s time to get read for Vengeance. Brock Lesnar is the new King and that means he’ll be challenging for the title at Summerslam, but […]

Thankfully Smackdown is ready for that and has already […]

Monday Night Raw Date: November 21, 2016 Location: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Byron Saxton We’re still in Toronto as the big pay per view weekends are starting to feel like an old Raw TV cycle. The big story last night is Brock Lesnar’s complete destruction at the hands […]
