Went to the Raw House Show Last Night

I took in the Raw house show last night at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. The featured attraction this time around was John Cena, who was making a rare house show appearance. However, this wasn’t mentioned on TV commercials until the week of the show, despite the announcement being made on WWE.com over three weeks […]

Took in the NXT House Show Tonight

I took in the NXT house show tonight in Highland Heights, Kentucky (basically Cincinnati) at the BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. NXT was at this same arena about nine months ago and they’re already back, though after how things went tonight, I don’t know if there’s going to be a third […]

NXT House Show – January 13, 2017: Shaking Hands with Champions

I took in the NXT house show last night at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky. The arena holds 6,600 people but part of it was tarped off and the entire back section of the bleacher seats weren’t sold. The floor seats however were completely full and gave the show a good feeling as the […]

NXT House Show – July 15, 2016

The wife and I took in the NXT house show in Highland Heights, Kentucky (ten minutes from downtown Cincinnati) on Friday night. I had wanted to go to one of these things for a long time and was almost more excited to see this than I was for Takeover: Dallas.

Hideo Itami Returns At House Show

http://411mania.com/wrestling/hideo-itami-returns-from-injury-at-nxt-house-show/ Good for him, though it’s going to take some time before he gets his rhythm back and he wasn’t exactly lighting up the world before he left.

Samoa Joe Wins NXT Title At House Show

http://www.wwe.com/shows/wwenxt/article/samoa-joe-wins-nxt-championship   I did find it interesting that they mentioned the title match on last night’s show but this is a big surprise.  If nothing else it frees Balor up to do other things.  Like debut at Payback.

Seth Rollins Possibly Injured

http://www.wrestlingrumors.net/seth-rollins-possibly-injured/44556/   It’s a leg/knee and he was helped to the back.  There’s no word on how serious it is but it’s always noteworthy.

TNA Cancels Halloween Weekend House Show Tour

http://411mania.com/wrestling/tna-cancels-gulf-coast-halloween-weekend-tour/   It’s never a good sign, but I’m sure they have taped matches to make up for it right?

WWE Madison Square Garden House Show – October 3, 2015: The Hallowed Halls

WWE Madison Square Garden House Show Date: October 3, 2015 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Commentators: Rich Brennan, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton This is another WWE Network exclusive from the world’s most famous arena. It’s a pretty stacked card with the main event of Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show in […]

John Cena Possibly Injured At House Show

http://www.wrestlingrumors.net/john-cena-potentially-injured-during-wwe-live-event-on-friday-night/40780/   This one doesn’t sound that serious, but not doing the post match stuff isn’t a good sign.  At least he was able to finish the match.  There’s a good chance he won’t be on Raw though and that’s fine considering Seth has a second opponent for the pay per view.
