Payback 2017: Thank You Strowman! And Reigns. Rollins Too. Throw in Joe. Maybe Jericho?

Payback 2017 Date: April 30, 2017 Location: SAP Center, San Jose, California Commentators: Michael Cole, Booker T., Corey Graves And now, the most oddly booked, unnecessary and likely meaningless pay per view of the year! We’re four weeks removed from Wrestlemania and somehow it seems like a far more distant memory. This was going to […]

Payback 2017 Preview

I’ve seen every pay per view WWE has ever produced and this is one of the most worthless they’ve ever put on. The Superstar Shakeup has changed the entire company and that means we have a bunch of pointless matches due to either the title not being on the line, people potentially switching shows and […]

Ring of Honor TV – April 26, 2017: Taste the Freshness

Ring of Honor Date: April 26, 2017 Location: William J. Myers Pavilion, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Colt Cabana, Ian Riccaboni We’re FINALLY on a new taping cycle and that means we’re finishing off the Top Prospect Tournament once and for all. This taping mess continues to be annoying and I’m not sure what we have to […]

Smackdown – November 28, 2002: Thank You For Stephanie, Wrestling, Stephanie, Brock Lesnar and Stephanie

Smackdown Date: November 28, 2002 Location: Carolina Center, Columbia, South Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Ernest Miller It’s time for a special Thanksgiving show with guest star Scott Steiner. I’m not sure how wrestling is supposed to have guest stars but in theory it’s because Steiner isn’t on the Smackdown roster. I mean, he’s not on […]

Main Event – April 27, 2017: As Raw Goes

Main Event Date: April 27, 2017 Location: Sprint Center, Kansas City, Missouri Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves I’m not even sure what to say about this show anymore. It comes and goes with a few interesting highlights and the rest is just a bunch of matches between the standard batch of regular people and then […]

205 Live – April 25, 2017: If You Build It, He Will Lose

205 Live Date: April 25, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves We’re closing in on Payback and that means the upcoming title match is starting to run out of steam. One of the problems with 205 Live is you can only get so much mileage out of a […]

Monday Night Raw – December 27, 1993: Maybe Undertaker Is Bad At His Job

Monday Night Raw Date: December 27, 1993 Location: Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, New York Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jacques, Pierre It’s the final show of the year and that means….well nothing really as one of the major matches announced for this week is Marty Jannetty vs. Johnny Polo. I have no idea why that’s supposed to […]

Monday Night Raw – December 20, 1993: New York Isn’t Memphis

Monday Night Raw Date: December 20, 1993 Location: Westchester County Civic Center, White Plains, New York Attendance: 3,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels We’re getting close to wrapping up the year and that means it’s time to get ready for the Royal Rumble. Last week focused on setting up the casket match which will see […]

Monday Night Raw – December 13, 1993: The Savage Stereotype

Monday Night Raw Date: December 13, 1993 Location: Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, New York Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jim Cornette With Bobby Heenan gone, it’s probably time to start the very long running tradition of rotating commentators to go with Vince. Other than that we’re getting close to the start of the build to the Royal […]

Monday Night Raw – December 6, 1993: Come Back Bobby

Monday Night Raw Date: December 6, 1993 Location: Westchester County Civic Center, White Plains, New York Attendance: 3,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan Dang I just finished the January 1994 shows and now I get to see how we got there. We’re just past the Survivor Series where Lex Luger and AMERICA defeated the evil […]
