Went to Axxess Again (And I Actually Used My Camera!)

This was my fourth Axxess and my first on Thursday night, which is the opening session. The layout is roughly the same every year and there’s really no difference in the way the rooms look in any given year save for where stages are. I only did General Admission this year after a VIP session […]

Monday Night Raw Date: September 16, 2002 Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Unforgiven and that means a lot more from HHH and his REALLY COOL SLEEPER.
