Monday Night Raw – November 18, 2002: I’d Rather Talk About Anthology

Monday Night Raw Date: November 18, 2002 Location: Webster Bank Arena, Bridgeport, Connecticut Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler We’re past Survivor Series and that means Shawn Michaels gets to keep HHH’s World Title warm for the next few weeks. That’s really all that matters from the Raw side as the show was almost all about […]

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 […]

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 […]

Super Tuesday 2002: We Didn’t Forget About You Kane

Super Tuesday Date: November 12, 2002 Location: FleetCenter, Boston, Massachusetts/Verizon Wireless Arena, Manchester, New Hampshire Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Tazz This is a one off special that aired on UPN as a way to help hype up Survivor Series.

Monday Night Raw – November 11, 2002: Just the Two of Them

Monday Night Raw Date: November 11, 2002 Location: US Bank Arena, Cincinnati, Ohio Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Survivor Series 2002 and that means we’re in for a lot of talking about the Elimination Chamber.

Smackdown – November 7, 2002: Look at Hour One. Look at Hour Two!

Smackdown Date: November 7, 2002 Location: Verizon Wireless Arena, Manchester, New Hampshire Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re closing in on Survivor Series and that means Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show for reasons I don’t even want to comprehend.

Monday Night Raw – November 4, 2002: At Least It’s Wrestling

Monday Night Raw Date: November 4, 2002 Location: FleetCenter, Boston, Massachusetts Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler Please let it be better than October. I mean, I’m not sure it could possibly be much worse and the Elimination Chamber could certainly help things out a bit. If it gets Kane on to ANYTHING else, it’s a […]

Smackdown – October 31, 2002: I’m Sure This Show Won’t Change Wrestling Forever or ANything

Smackdown Date: October 31, 2002 Location: Van Andel Arena, Grand Rapids, Michigan Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s a special show as Smackdown is having a Halloween party. This show is memorable for one specific reason that we’ll get to later but above all else it isn’t likely to include necrophilia or a #1 contender losing […]

Monday Night Raw – October 28, 2002: The Default Upgrade

Monday Night Raw Date: October 28, 2002 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This show comes in with a very simple advantage: it’s not the Katie Vick episode.

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 […]
