Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXXI: Everyone Talks About It But Rollins Did It

Wrestlemania XXXI Date: March 29, 2015 Location: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California Attendance: 76,976 Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry Lawler This is an interesting show as most people really weren’t looking forward to it. The card isn’t that bad on paper but the interest is still low. Reigns vs. Lesnar isn’t the most […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXX: Oh YES I Went There

Wrestlemania XXX Date: April 6, 2014 Location: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana Attendance: 75,167 Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry Lawler I haven’t watched this match since I saw it the day after seeing it live in the Superdome last year. This show received rave reviews at the time (including from me) and it’s […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXIX: The Not So Great Sequel

Wrestlemania XXIX Date: April 7, 2013 Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey Attendance: 80,676 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield It’s hard to believe this show was almost a year ago. The main event is of course Rock vs. Cena II in the sequel that not a lot of people wanted to […]

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 – October 28, 2002: The Default Upgrade

Monday Night Raw Date: October 28, 2002 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This show comes in with a very simple advantage: it’s not the Katie Vick episode. There have been well over 1000 episodes of Monday Night Raw (we’ll hit #500 by the end of 2002) and last week’s […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVIII: The Biggest Match of This Generation

Wrestlemania XXVIII Date: April 1, 2012 Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Florida Attendance: 78,363 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler We wrap things up with this and a main event which no one ever thought we would see: John Cena vs. The Rock. This is one of if not the only match ever that I had […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVII: The Worst Choice In Wrestlemania History

Wrestlemania XXVII Date: April 3, 2011 Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia Attendance: 71,617 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Josh Matthews This is the Rock’s show as he’s back to be guest host. Really that’s all you need to know here because it’s all that matters. We’ve also got Cena vs. Miz for the Raw Title, […]

Monday Night Raw – March 27, 2017: Going Home for a Really Long Day

Monday Night Raw Date: March 27, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, Corey Graves It’s the last show before Wrestlemania and that means there isn’t likely to be much going on tonight. The big story tonight is the HHH vs. Seth Rollins signing, which is a match that somehow […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVI: Hasta La Bye Bye Shawn

Wrestlemania XXVI Date: March 28, 2010 Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona Attendance: 72,219 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Matt Striker Here’s a pretty different show from last year. This is a double main event with a Taker vs. Shawn II and Cena vs. Batista II, the latter one being for the Raw Title. […]

Main Event – March 16, 2017: Another Forgettable Show

Main Event Date: March 16, 2017 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton I’m hoping that things pick up a bit as we get closer to Wrestlemania but there’s a good chance that it’s just not going to happen. Main Event continues to be one of the most difficult to predict […]
