Smackdown – March 28, 2017: Flying Sparks From Mouths and Graves

Smackdown Date: March 28, 2017 Location: Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga It’s the final Smackdown before Wrestlemania and that means…..well likely it means a bunch of promos and a few matches here and there but that’s standard operating procedure for this time of year. I’d expect a big […]

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. There have been well over 1000 episodes of Monday Night Raw (we’ll hit #500 by the end of 2002) and last week’s […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVIII: The Biggest Match of This Generation

Wrestlemania XXVIII Date: April 1, 2012 Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Florida Attendance: 78,363 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler We wrap things up with this and a main event which no one ever thought we would see: John Cena vs. The Rock. This is one of if not the only match ever that I had […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVII: The Worst Choice In Wrestlemania History

Wrestlemania XXVII Date: April 3, 2011 Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia Attendance: 71,617 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Josh Matthews This is the Rock’s show as he’s back to be guest host. Really that’s all you need to know here because it’s all that matters. We’ve also got Cena vs. Miz for the Raw Title, […]

Greetings From Orlando

So in case I forgot to mention it, I’m back at Wrestlemania this year but since the wife is visiting family, I can go to WAY more stuff than I did last year.  On the schedule this year: Minimum of 3 signings (might be four depending on time) Two indy shows Axxess Wrestlecon Takeover Wrestlemania […]

Monday Night Raw – March 27, 2017: Going Home for a Really Long Day

Monday Night Raw Date: March 27, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves It’s the last show before Wrestlemania and that means there isn’t likely to be much going on tonight. The big story tonight is the HHH vs. Seth Rollins signing, which is a match that somehow […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVI: Hasta La Bye Bye Shawn

Wrestlemania XXVI Date: March 28, 2010 Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona Attendance: 72,219 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Matt Striker Here’s a pretty different show from last year. This is a double main event with a Taker vs. Shawn II and Cena vs. Batista II, the latter one being for the Raw Title. […]

205 Live – March 21, 2017: The A, B and C Plots

205 Live Date: March 21, 2017 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves This is still an interesting show as they have an hour to only build to only one Wrestlemania match. In addition to that though, there is the Akira Tozawa vs. Brian Kendrick feud. I’m not sure when that’s […]

Main Event – March 16, 2017: Another Forgettable Show

Main Event Date: March 16, 2017 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton I’m hoping that things pick up a bit as we get closer to Wrestlemania but there’s a good chance that it’s just not going to happen. Main Event continues to be one of the most difficult to predict […]

Main Event – March 23, 2017: The Main Event Musketeers

Main Event Date: March 23, 2017 Location: Barclays Center, New York Center, New York Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton You would think this show might pick up a little bit with Wrestlemania just around the corner but odds are we’re looking at some combination of Jinder Mahal, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel in the first […]
