Articles from March 2017



Monday Night Raw – March 27, 2017: Going Home for a Really Long Day

Monday Night Raw Date: March 27, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves It’s the last show before Wrestlemania and that means there isn’t likely to be much going on tonight. The big story tonight is the HHH vs. Seth Rollins signing, which is a match that somehow […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVI: Hasta La Bye Bye Shawn

Wrestlemania XXVI Date: March 28, 2010 Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona Attendance: 72,219 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Matt Striker Here’s a pretty different show from last year. This is a double main event with a Taker vs. Shawn II and Cena vs. Batista II, the latter one being for the Raw Title. […]

Ring of Honor TV – March 22, 2017: The Benefits of Good Wrestling

Ring of Honor Date: March 22, 2017 Location: Stage AE, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Commentator: Ian Riccaboni We’re at….I have no idea where we are on the calendar at this point as we’re done with the 15th Anniversary Show but we’re also coming up on Supercard of Honor XI, meaning it’s almost impossible to tell where this […]

Smackdown – October 24, 2002: How Do You Like Your Wrestling?

Smackdown Date: October 24, 2002 Location: Pyramid, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Tazz, Michael Cole With No Mercy done (and Undertaker probably still bleeding), it’s time to start the road towards Survivor Series in about a month. The real buzz is about the Tag Team Titles though after Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle became the inaugural champions […]

205 Live – March 21, 2017: The A, B and C Plots

205 Live Date: March 21, 2017 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves This is still an interesting show as they have an hour to only build to only one Wrestlemania match. In addition to that though, there is the Akira Tozawa vs. Brian Kendrick feud. I’m not sure when that’s […]

Main Event – March 16, 2017: Another Forgettable Show

Main Event Date: March 16, 2017 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton I’m hoping that things pick up a bit as we get closer to Wrestlemania but there’s a good chance that it’s just not going to happen. Main Event continues to be one of the most difficult to predict […]

Main Event – March 23, 2017: The Main Event Musketeers

Main Event Date: March 23, 2017 Location: Barclays Center, New York Center, New York Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton You would think this show might pick up a little bit with Wrestlemania just around the corner but odds are we’re looking at some combination of Jinder Mahal, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel in the first […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXV: Not So Fast

Wrestlemania XXV Date: April 5, 2009 Location: Reliant Stadium, Houston, Texas Attendance: 72,744 Commentators: Jim Ross, Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler After last year’s great show, we get….this. Wrestlemania 25 is often listed alongside the worst Wrestlemanias of all time. I watched it live and thought it sucked other than the candidate for best match ever […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXIV: WOO!

Wrestlemania XXIV Date: March 30, 2008 Location: Citrus Bowl, Orlando, Florida Attendance: 74,365 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Jonathan Coachman, Joey Styles, Tazz We’re going outside for the first time in a long time for this one. It’s also the first time the show has been in Florida which is odd for some […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXIII: Make Your Own Joke

Wrestlemania XXIII Date: April 1, 2007 Location: Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 80,103 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Tazz, John Bradshaw Layfield, Joey Styles To say this show was a success is an understatement. Until Rock vs. Cena, this show drew more PPV buys than any show in the history of the company, […]
