Battleground 2017 Preview

Ah “Battleground 2017”. Every year I come into this show almost forgetting that it’s there because it feels like the most generic pay per view of the year.

Smackdown Date: July 18, 2017 Location: Legacy Arena, Birmingham, Alabama Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton It’s the go home show for Battleground and Jinder Mahal has brought the Punjabi Prison with him to Smackdown.

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.

Smackdown Date: January 30, 2003 Location: Resch Center, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re getting closer to No Way Out and the big story is the return of Hulk Hogan, who showed up last week and punched out Vince McMahon. Other than that we have the far less important story of Brock Lesnar […]
