Going to Smackdown Tonight

Talk about it here.  I’ll have a quick live report up tonight and I’ll have the review up tomorrow at the latest.

Monday Night Raw – April 17, 2017: That Ambulance Died in Vain

Monday Night Raw
Date: April 17, 2017
Location: Schottenstein Center, Columbus, Ohio
Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Booker T.

Just in case we haven’t had enough going on of late, this is kind of a relaunch for Raw as we have a fresh roster at full strength for the first time. In addition to all the new names, the interesting question is will Roman Reigns be here. After Braun Strowman basically killed him last week, it should be interesting to see if he’ll be here tonight. If so, WWE is missing a major opportunity. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Monday Night Raw – April 17, 2017: That Ambulance Died in Vain

Ring of Honor TV – April 12, 2017: Now Just A Month Behind

Ring of Honor
Date: April 12, 2017
Location: Sam’s Town Live, Las Vegas, Nevada
Commentators: Ian Riccaboni, Kevin Kelly

I’m not even going to pretend that I know what’s going on at the moment. I know we’re past the Anniversary Show but I’d assume we’re not up to Supercard of Honor yet, despite it taking place nearly two weeks ago. All I know is we’ll still be seeing Top Prospect Tournament stuff because that thing just won’t end. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Ring of Honor TV – April 12, 2017: Now Just A Month Behind

Main Event – April 13, 2017: The Hometown Version

Main Event
Date: April 13, 2017
Location: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, New York
Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves

I’ve spent months asking for some kind of a shakeup around here and now that the rosters have been tossed around, WWE might actually have to offer us something fresh around here. It should be interesting to see who replaces Jinder Mahal, who was one of the Main Event regulars. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Main Event – April 13, 2017: The Hometown Version

Survivor Series 2002 (2017 Redo): What Was That Again?

Survivor Series 2002
Date: November 17, 2002
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York
Attendance: 17,930
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Tazz

For those of you who have read my old reviews of this show, you might remember that the main event has sent me into various rantings and ravings over the years. It might have ticked me off more than any match ever at one point, though it’s since been topped multiple times. I’m kind of curious to see how I react to it this time around so let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Survivor Series 2002 (2017 Redo): What Was That Again?

Smackdown – November 14, 2002: Two Layups

Smackdown
Date: November 14, 2002
Location: Nationwide Arena, Columbus, Ohio
Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz

It’s the go home show for Survivor Series and that means it’s time for more Big Show. One of the big stories coming out of this week came on Super Tuesday when Stephanie McMahon announced that the Smackdown Tag Team Titles will be decided in a triple threat match, which should be an amazing spectacle. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Smackdown – November 14, 2002: Two Layups

Monday Night Raw – January 31, 1994: The Tax And Coin Toss Show

Monday Night Raw
Date: January 31, 1994
Location: Fernwood Resort, Bushkill, Pennsylvania
Attendance: 1,600
Commentators: Vince McMahon, Irwin R. Schyster

We’re finally on a new taping cycle and that means we’re getting ready to start the build towards Wrestlemania X. In that case we need to have some clarification on the World Title situation, which is one heck of a mess at this point. As for tonight though, it’s the 1-2-3 Kid vs. Johnny Polo, which would be one heck of a drug conversation. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Monday Night Raw – January 31, 1994: The Tax And Coin Toss Show

Monday Night Raw – January 24, 1994: Somebody Do Something

Monday Night Raw
Date: January 24, 1994
Location: Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia
Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jim Ross

Here’s a rare one as we have a TV show taped before a pay per view yet serving as the fallout show. There’s a chance that the commentary has been updated (remember that the Rumble was on a Saturday so they would have extra time) but this could be an interesting case. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Monday Night Raw – January 24, 1994: Somebody Do Something

Royal Rumble 1994: As Weird As Undertaker Ever Got (And That’s Saying Something)

Royal Rumble 1994
Date: January 22, 1994
Location: Providence Civic Center, Providence, Rhode Island
Attendance: 14,500
Commentators: Vince McMahon, Ted DiBiase

This is one of those shows where the good stuff is good but the bad stuff is REALLY bad. The main idea here is that someone has to stop Yokozuna, and it’s going to be one of three people: Bret Hart or Lex Luger who could get the shot by winning the Rumble, or the Undertaker who has a casket match against Yoko tonight for the title. Oh….this is going to be a long night. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Royal Rumble 1994: As Weird As Undertaker Ever Got (And That’s Saying Something)

Monday Night Raw – January 17, 1994: A Phone Call From The Future

Monday Night Raw
Date: January 17, 1994
Location: Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia
Commentators: Vince McMahon, Crush

It’s the go home show for the Royal Rumble and that means it’s time for a good old fashioned hard sell show with a big brawl at the end. Unfortunately it also means more about Undertaker vs. Yokozuna to help set up one of the worst matches of all time. This show starts the second year of the show so let’s get to it.
