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. It’s not like we have a small army of amazing technical wrestlers who could have a great […]

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 […]

Smackdown – October 24, 2002: How Do You Like Your Wrestling?

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 […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XX (2017 Redo): The Definitive One

Wrestlemania XX Date: March 14, 2004 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Attendance: 18,500 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This is an interesting choice but when I asked which show you wanted redone, I got a nine way tie at one vote apiece so I picked it myself. If […]

Smackdown – October 17, 2002: That’s Not How A Shower Works

Smackdown Date: October 17, 2002 Location: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for No Mercy and after the disaster that was Raw, this could be two hours of Edge having a meatball sandwich and paying his water bill and it would be more entertaining. The focus […]

No Mercy 2002 (2017 Redo): Bloody Heck

No Mercy 2002 Date: October 20, 2002 Location: Alltel Arena, North Little Rock, Arkansas Attendance: 9,074 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This is one of those rare shows where the Brand Split really changes everything. On the Smackdown side we have what could be an incredible bloodbath inside the Cell between Brock […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XVII: Holy Repo Man on a Stick This Show is Great

Wrestlemania XVII Date: April 1, 2001 Location: Astrodome, Houston, Texas Attendance: 67,925 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman After putting up with last year’s mess, this is my reward. Many people including myself consider this to be the greatest wrestling show of all time and I can’t say I argue that point whatsoever. It’s a four […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XIV: McMahons, McMahons Everywhere

Wrestlemania XVI Date: April 2, 2000 Location: Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, California Attendance: 18,034 Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross This is also called Wrestlemania 2000 but the purist in me won’t let that happen. This is a step up over last year’s one match show as this year we have a two match show. The main […]

Smackdown – October 10, 2002: Stop Trying to Be Raw

Smackdown Date: October 10, 2002 Location: America West Arena, Phoenix, Arizona Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re ten days away from No Mercy and the big question is Undertaker’s hand, which was broken last week. That’s not good when he’s heading into the Cell with Brock Lesnar. The other major story is the Tag Team Title […]

Smackdown – October 3, 2002: This is the Good Half

Smackdown Date: October 3, 2002 Location: CajunDome, Lafayette, Louisiana Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz I don’t know what lit the fire underneath Smackdown as of late but they’ve been on fire. Last week was one of the best episodes of TV I’ve ever seen and while there’s a good chance things will go downhill tonight, at […]
