Battleground 2017: The Worst Match I’ve Seen In At Least Ten Years

Battleground 2017 Date: July 23, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton It’s time for another pay per view before we head on to Summerslam but tonight we have a Punjabi Prison match.

Battleground 2017 Preview

Ah “Battleground 2017”. Every year I come into this show almost forgetting that it’s there because it feels like the most generic pay per view of the year.

Wrestling Wars Podcast Episode 20

I’ve been on a bit of a podcast tear lately with three episodes of a different show recorded yesterday and then this ninety minute marathon with NorCal as we cover a PACKED week of wrestling news ranging from Hogan, TNA screwing up (double shot this week), Global Force Wrestling’s TV tapings, a quick Battleground recap […]

Reviewing the Review: Battleground 2015

This is going to be an interesting one as I was up late watching Battleground and had to leave to get on a plane about half an hour after the show ended. I saw the whole show, but I had a lot on my mind at the time. Now that I’ve had some time to […]

Battleground 2015: Burn It To The Ground

Battleground 2015 Date: July 19, 2015 Location: Scottrade Center, St. Louis, Missouri Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry Lawler It’s time for the show that is here to fill time until it’s Summerslam, which usually isn’t the most interesting thing in the world. The main event tonight is Seth Rollins defending the World Title […]
