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. Each show taped a bonus match so we have something from both sides, […]

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 […]

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 […]
