Smackdown Date: March 27, 2003 Location: HP Pavilion, San Jose, California Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s the final show for Wrestlemania and also my dad’s fiftieth birthday.

Monday Night Raw Date: March 24, 2003 Location: ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Wrestlemania but more importantly we’ll be seeing the first ever Rock Concert with Rock giving us a performance for the ages.

Smackdown Date: March 20, 2003 Location: Freedom Hall, Louisville, Kentucky Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re ten days away from Wrestlemania XIX and hopefully things are going to pick up around here.

Smackdown Date: March 6, 2003 Location: Harbor Yard Arena, Bridgeport, Connecticut Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’ve reached Wrestlemania month and it’s time for some payback as we have Brock Lesnar vs. Paul Heyman inside a steel cage.

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 Date: April 6, 2017 Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton Can the Wrestlemania edition of this show be an upgrade?

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 […]
