Quick Thought on JBL and Mauro Ranallo

So one of the biggest stories going on in recent weeks has been the Mauro Ranallo vs. JBL issue. While we don’t know all the details yet, it seems that JBL kept yelling at/insulting/tormenting Ranallo, who has bipolar disorder, to the point where Ranallo had a major issue and is likely gone from the company […]

Main Event – April 6, 2017: I’m Sorry Curtis

Main Event Date: April 6, 2017 Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton Can the Wrestlemania edition of this show be an upgrade? Am I asking too much for something like that? Yeah probably, as this is almost bound to be the same people having the same dark matches because that’s how […]

Monday Night Raw – April 3, 2017: HEY WE WANT……PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THIS!

Monday Night Raw Date: April 3, 2017 Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Byron Saxton IT’S CRAZY NIGHT! This show has a reputation for being the most over the top and often completely ridiculous show with the crowd making the night all about them. It’s hard to say what we might […]

Monday Night Raw – April 4, 2016 (2017 Redo): Travel Packages

Since I’m ridiculously backed up due to being in Orlando, I needed something to fill in the space.  Here’s a fresh version of last year’s post-Wrestlemania Raw to bridge the gap a bit.   Monday Night Raw Date: April 4, 2016 Location: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas Commentators: Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, John Bradshaw Layfield […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXVI: Hasta La Bye Bye Shawn

Wrestlemania XXVI Date: March 28, 2010 Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona Attendance: 72,219 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Matt Striker Here’s a pretty different show from last year.

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXIII: Make Your Own Joke

Wrestlemania XXIII Date: April 1, 2007 Location: Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 80,103 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Tazz, John Bradshaw Layfield, Joey Styles To say this show was a success is an understatement. Until Rock vs. Cena, this show drew more PPV buys than any show in the history of the company, […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XXII: Cena’s Moment

Wrestlemania XXII Date: April 2, 2006 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Attendance: 17,159 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross We head to the midwest here for a pretty forgotten show. The main events here are Cena defending against HHH and Angle defending against Guerrero and Orton. No that isn’t a typo. The triple […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XIX: It’s Loved For A Reason

Wrestlemania XIX Date: March 30, 2003 Location: Safeco Field, Seattle, Washington Attendance: 54,097 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross We’re into the brand split now, which means there are two world titles to deal with.

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. Many people including myself consider this to be the greatest wrestling show of all time and I can’t say I argue that point whatsoever. It’s a four […]

Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania XV: And People Still Defend Russo?

Wrestlemania XV Date: March 28, 1999 Location: First Union Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Attendance: 20,276 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler This is a somewhat forgotten show and it’s pretty easy to see why: there isn’t much on here worth seeing. We’re full into Russo era now which means things are going to go REALLY fast but […]
