Smackdown – June 5, 2003: America First, And Then Lord Littlebrook

Smackdown Date: June 5, 2003 Location: Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, California Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz This week is almost all about Kurt Angle, who is back from the rather ridiculous two months off after having another major neck injury. To be fair, he’s long been established as a crazy man anyway so it’s not like this […]

Main Event – October 26, 2017: Dash Wilder Will Be Relieved

Main Event Date: October 26, 2017 Location: Resch Center, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Vic Joseph, Nigel McGuinness It’s not a good sign when I can barely remember this week’s Monday Night Raw on Friday night. The big stories were the Smackdown invasion and Brock Lesnar returning to answer Jinder Mahal’s challenge. It’s hard to guess […]

Smackdown – May 15, 2003: One of the Only Times WWE Has Disgusted Me

Smackdown Date: May 15, 2003 Location: 1st Mariner Arena, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Judgment Day and I have my notebook ready for all the questions I have regarding the Mr. America storyline. Given how little sense the whole thing makes if you listen to what everyone says, […]

Smackdown – April 10, 2003: The Old Men Program

Smackdown Date: April 10, 2003 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s tournament time and that means some bigger matches tonight. The tournament seems to be John Cena’s to win, especially with the FBI around to mess with Undertaker. Why he’s stuck with the FBI isn’t clear, but it’s also not clear […]

Smackdown – September 7, 2007: Playing the Midcard Heel

Smackdown Date: September 7, 2007 Location: US Bank Arena, Cincinnati, Ohio Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield This is another request as I try (in vain) to clear out that overly large pile. We’re coming up on Unforgiven 2007 meaning Great Khali is Smackdown World Champion with Batista chasing him. Tonight’s main event is Chavo […]

Monday Night Raw – August 29, 2005: Believe It Or Not

Monday Night Raw Date: August 29, 2005 Location: St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa, Florida Attendance: 8,500 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Jonathan Coachman This is another request and I’m assuming it’s due to a certain grudge match. We’re eight days removed from Summerslam 2005, which means we’re dealing with WWE Champion John Cena (shocking I […]

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 XXV: Not So Fast

Wrestlemania XXV Date: April 5, 2009 Location: Reliant Stadium, Houston, Texas Attendance: 72,744 Commentators: Jim Ross, Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler After last year’s great show, we get….this. Wrestlemania 25 is often listed alongside the worst Wrestlemanias of all time. I watched it live and thought it sucked other than the candidate for best match ever […]

Royal Rumble Count-Up – 2009: That Same Match

Royal Rumble 2009 Date: January 25, 2009 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 16,685 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross, Todd Grisham, Matt Striker, Tazz This isn’t so much the Royal Rumble as much as it is HHH and Randy Orton are in a match and 28 other guys happen to be in […]

Smackdown – August 22, 2002: Hear Us Roar!

Smackdown Date: August 22, 2002 Location: Crown Coliseum, Fayetteville, North Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the go home show for Summerslam and the show is finally starting to pick up some steam. The midcard is still in need of some work and thankfully that’s where Smackdown shines. Hopefully they don’t spend all night talking […]
