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 […]

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 […]

Smackdown – September 26, 2002 (2017 Redo): The Best Smackdown of All Time

Smackdown Date: September 26, 2002 Location: San Diego Sports Arena, San Diego, California Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz Well Brock retained the title but they basically ruined the end of the pay per view with a double DQ finish. That almost guarantees that we’re setting up a rematch at No Mercy in a month because that’s […]

Smackdown – September 19, 2002: They’re the Faces?

Smackdown Date: September 19, 2002 Location: World Arena, Colorado Springs, Colorado Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Unforgiven and that means we’ll be getting some more of Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar. At the same time though, you can really see the Smackdown Six being built up before our eyes and that’s […]

Smackdown – September 5, 2002: The Holly Show

Smackdown Date: September 5, 2002 Location: Resch Center Arena, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s hard to say what to expect here but hopefully it’s another rocking tag match with some talented people getting to show what they can do instead of jobbing to Undertaker after a former World Champion’s finisher doesn’t have […]

Smackdown – August 29, 2002: The Stephanie Factor

Smackdown Date: August 29, 2002 Location: Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re past Summerslam and Smackdown now has their own World Champion as Stephanie (cue the chorus) has signed Brock Lesnar to an exclusive deal. How exactly she can do this isn’t clear but my guess is SHE’S STEPHANIE […]

Smackdown – August 22, 2002: Hear Us Roar!

Smackdown Date: August 22, 2002 Location: Crown Coliseum, Fayetteville, North Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Summerslam and the show is finally starting to pick up some steam. The midcard is still in need of some work and thankfully that’s where Smackdown shines. Hopefully they don’t spend all night talking […]

Smackdown – August 15, 2002: The Smackdown Several

Smackdown Date: August 15, 2002 Location: Key Arena, Seattle, Washington Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz With ten days to go before Summerslam, the Raw half of the card is mostly filled in. That leaves a lot of Smackdown to go and that could mean some interesting things going on. Now of course the important thing tonight […]
