Smackdown – March 21, 2017: Oh Shane…..Just Stop

Smackdown Date: March 21, 2017 Location: Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut Commentators: John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga, Tom Phillips We’ve got two shows left before Wrestlemania XXXIII and it’s not likely that any brand new ideas are going to be added to the card. Odds are we’ll have Dean Ambrose vs. Baron Corbin confirmed and […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XVII: Holy Repo Man on a Stick This Show is Great

Wrestlemania XVII Date: April 1, 2001 Location: Astrodome, Houston, Texas Attendance: 67,925 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman After putting up with last year’s mess, this is my reward.

Smackdown – March 14, 2017: Shane Over Stephanie

Smackdown Date: March 14, 2017 Location: PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Commentators: John Bradshaw Layfield, Tom Phillips We’ve got three Smackdowns left before Wrestlemania and now we have a #1 contender to Bray Wyatt’s Smackdown World Title.

Thoughts On the Rumored Wrestlemania XXXIII Card

Just…..wow.  This has been floating around for a bit and if this is the case, I have no idea where we are on a lot of these things.  Here it is with a thought or two per match.

Best of 2016: Surprise of the Year

This is one of the last two because we’re getting close to the Royal Rumble and that’s FAR too late for the sake of doing a Best of series. Basically today we’re looking at the Surprise of the Year, which I’m going to keep a bit shorter for the sake of time. There are a […]

Best of 2016: News Story of the Year

This is always a trick one to define. Sometimes there are stories that mean something outside of the ring and often times, those are even bigger stories than anything between the ropes. There were a fair few stories like that this year and for once they don’t all pertain to WWE. These stories are in […]

Best of 2016: Worst Angle of the Year

Best of 2016: Worst Match of the Year

Smackdown – January 17, 2017: It’s No Big Deal Anymore

Smackdown Date: January 17, 2017 Location: FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Mauro Ranallo, John Bradshaw Layfield, David Otunga, Tom Phillips I know I say this every week but it’s a stacked show again with Alexa Bliss defending the Women’s Title against Becky Lynch in a cage match to prevent interference from La Luchadora. Other than […]
