I got a bunch of stuff on WrestleMania 37, and here is a quick rundown of what I thought of the card across the board. There's a lot to unpack, and to be honest I don't have super deep thoughts on every part of the show so some of this is going to be brief. … Continue reading Wrestlemania 37 Rundown
https://twitter.com/Kazeem/status/1382386427523129350?s=19 Indeed it was, and not because of the number of participants but because of the roles they were given, from headliners to defending champions to rising stars to young prospects to wily veterans here to help said young prospects. There was a level of trust to Black wrestlers at this show, for the ring … Continue reading WrestleMania 37 Deeper Thoughts
As with the Royal Rumble I felt it was best to turn things over to a Black woman to discuss the significance, and Tonya graciously agreed to do that again. She's the author of this piece. Find her at @TheWitchMilitia on Twitter. I sat down to watch Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 this past Saturday … Continue reading Dreaming in Reality
I've mostly stayed on the sidelines when it came to talking about Roman Reigns since he came back, mainly because I was tired. I'd unloaded damn near every thought I had, found as much factual information to back up my opinions, and I think I covered every angle there was on the man's career.

It's been a while since I've done one of these, and with 'Mania being around the corner I figured I'd get back on the old bicycle.

First, the easy stuff. Pre Show All the matches were fine. The Men's Battle Royal was fun and the Women's Battle Royal was ok, even though the stigma of the whole SmackDown side getting the shaft a few weeks ago is still there. The Raw Tag Team match was a good match, albeit a bit … Continue reading WrestleMania 35 – KofiMania!!!

It seemed like all of us were so super hyped going in, but when it was over most of us were pretty damn deflated for a lot of different reasons. So what happened? Was … Continue reading Reevaluating WrestleMania 34
WrestleMania 18 was in the middle of a hangover of sorts for the WWE. The Invasion angle was over, having limped to the finished line after a rousing start, and now the roster was somewhat of a mess with people who'd been around for a while, holdovers from the WCW/ECW alliance, and a few additions … Continue reading Retro Recap – WrestleMania 18
It took a lot of searching for me to figure out what I wanted to say here after WrestleMania 34 ended. I was thinking 'this is a really great show we got here' right up until the Main Event. Some of the decisions caught me off guard. I was surprised at Asuka tapping out to … Continue reading What to do about Roman Reigns?
WrestleMania 9 was at a time of major flux for the WWF and the wrestling business, and not in a good way. If anything it was a sign of just how quickly things can change. When WrestleMania 8 ended the WWF roster was the most loaded it had ever been, but now.....yikes. Ric Flair, Ultimate … Continue reading Retro Recap – WrestleMania 9
