Money in the Bank 2017 Preview

Thank goodness we’re finally here. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I can’t stand the build to this pay per view and I never have been able to. We’ve been BUILDING MOMENTUM to this show for over a month now and it’s time to finally pay it off, likely with someone who hasn’t […]

Smackdown Date: May 9, 2017 Location: 02 Arena, London, England Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, John Bradshaw Layfield We’re taped tonight from London as we have less than two weeks before Backlash.

Smackdown Date: April 25, 2017 Location: Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, Iowa Commentators: John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton Can we call this a go home show?

Elimination Chamber 2017 Preview

That’s right, it’s time for “Elimination Chamber 2017”, a “Smackdown Live” show with two matches containing eighteen wrestlers between them. It’s a […]
