Smackdown – October 31, 2017: Rusev Day is Strangerer Than Halloween

Smackdown Date: October 31, 2017 Location: Norfolk Scope, Norfolk, Virginia Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, Byron Saxton This almost has to be better. After last night’s rather lackluster Raw, we’re continuing the build towards Survivor Series. This week we have a pair of Survivor Series qualifying matches as Shinsuke Nakamura faces Kevin Owens and Bobby […]

Monday Night Raw – October 30, 2017: No. Moving On.

Monday Night Raw Date: October 30, 2017 Location: Royal Farms Arena, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Booker T. It’s time for the fallout show as we’re less than three weeks away from Survivor Series and Raw is reeling from Smackdown’s invasion last week. The interesting part is whether or not Smackdown will be […]

Ring of Honor TV – October 25, 2017: I’m Not Really Laughing

Ring of Honor Date: October 25, 2017 Location: Sam’s Town Live, Las Vegas, Nevada Commentators: Ian Riccaboni, Colt Cabana I’m assuming it’s time to start the build towards Final Battle and aside from bringing in an outsider to challenge for the title, things seem to be heading towards Cody defending the World Title against Jay […]

Survivor Series 1995 Date: November 19, 1995 Location: USAir Arena, Landover, Maryland Attendance: 14,500 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Mr. Perfect, Jim Ross Aside from the main event, there really isn’t much else to talk about. The rest of the show is dedicated to the midcard, save for the return of the Undertaker. He’ll be captaining the […]

Survivor Series 1994 Date: November 23, 1994 Location: Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas Attendance: 10,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Gorilla Monsoon Things weren’t all that great for the WWF at this time but Bret was doing well enough as the top man.

Smackdown – May 29, 2003: One Lies, the Other Punches

Smackdown Date: May 29, 2003 Location: Pensacola Civic Center, Pensacola, Florida Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re closing out the month with…a lie detector test! Yeah that’s the big draw this week: Mr. America is being forced to take a lie detector test after losing to Sean O’Haire last week. Somehow this was probably viewed as […]

Comic Book Review: Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia #1

So in what might not be the biggest shock in the world, I’m a big comic book fan. I’ve had a folder at my local comic book store for over ten years now and at one point had several boxes full of books. Therefore, I was rather pleased when I was contacted by the writer […]

Main Event – October 26, 2017: Dash Wilder Will Be Relieved

Main Event Date: October 26, 2017 Location: Resch Center, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness It’s not a good sign when I can barely remember this week’s Monday Night Raw on Friday night. The big stories were the Smackdown invasion and Brock Lesnar returning to answer Jinder Mahal’s challenge. It’s hard to guess […]

205 Live Date: October 24, 2017 Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Commentators: Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness Things have changed again as we’re back to the Enzo Amore Era. Amore won the title back from Kalisto on Sunday in a match with a grand total of no drama or surprise whatsoever. Now it’s time for a […]
