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 […]

Best of 2016: Promo of the Year

If there’s one thing that can make or break a wrestling show, it’s how the talking is handled. Over the years, a lot of great matches have been set up and then destroyed by horrible promo work. So much of the wrestling business is built on what happens before the bell rings because that’s how […]

Best of 2016: Most Improved Wrestler of the Year

A lot can change in the course of a year. Titles will change hands, people will turn face or heel and new memories can be made. All that being said though, the point is that wrestlers are supposed to get better, which is what we’ll be looking at today. We’re going to be looking at […]

Best of 2016: Angle of the Year

It wouldn’t be right if I was on time with these things but they’re mostly written up.  I’ll be able to do more than one a day (not saying twice a day) and hopefully get these done before they’re completely ridiculous.
