Impact Wrestling – October 26, 2017: Three Out of Seven is Really Bad

Impact Wrestling Date: October 26, 2017 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Josh Matthews, Jeremy Borash We’re back in Orlando and whatever other city/country they’re using material from this week. That’s the major issue at this point: a lot of Impact isn’t so much from Orlando but rather from all over the world. It’s nice […]

Survivor Series Count-Up – 1993: That’s a Pretty Robe

Survivor Series 1993 Date: November 24, 1993 Location: Boston Garden, Boston, Massachusetts Attendance: 15,509 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan This really is a transitional time for the company as the major stars of the past are all out of the picture, save for the occasional appearance by Savage.

Survivor Series 1992 Date: November 25, 1992 Location: Richfield Coliseum, Richfield, Ohio Attendance: 17,500 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan This really is a different era in the WWF as we’re moving more towards a child friendly product with more over the top and at times cartoonish characters.

Smackdown – May 12, 2006

Date: May 12, 2006 Location: iPayOne Center, San Diego, California Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz Not every SmackDown episode gives us great wrestling.

Smackdown Date: October 24, 2017 Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Commentators: Corey Graves, Michael Cole, Byron Saxton So this show looked one way coming into last night but has now completely changed.

Survivor Series 1991 Date: November 27, 1991 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 17,500 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan This show marks a change of pace from the Survivor Series formula and it was for the better.

Survivor Series Count-Up – 1990: One of the Real Game Changers

Survivor Series 1990 Date: November 22, 1990 Location: Hartford Civic Center, Hartford, Connecticut Attendance: 16,000 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Roddy Piper This is a somewhat different show that in recent years as we have a main event of sorts.
