I had the pleasure of hitting up the Super Smackdown at Madison Square Garden on September 10. It was my first time heading to MSG, and it was great. It was easily the best episode of Smackdown in some time and without a doubt since fans have returned. I got some pictures from the night, … Continue reading A night at MSG for WWE Smackdown
Summerslam is normally the second biggest show of the year in WWE but in 2021 given the circumstances it may be the biggest one. A Full capacity crowd at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas makes a big difference, among other things, but there was also the expectation of some big returns as well, particularly with … Continue reading Summerslam 2021 Thoughts
I closed out 2019 with the Holiday Tour in Baltimore. The Royal Farms Arena, formerly the Baltimore Arena, is one of the great midsize building to go to for a wrestling show (AEW was just here in November for Full Gear) and there has been some real wrestling history here. I've been here myself for … Continue reading WWE Holiday Tour 2019
I got inspired to do this by Becky Lynch's suggestion that the name 'Men's' and 'Women's' be taken off of the top singles titles on each brand. Personally I found the whole 'remove the distinction' thing to be a solution in search of a problem, one that doesn't really fix any of the issues or … Continue reading State of the WWE Women’s Division
This is a fun little exercise that I've partaken in for the second year in a row. The NY 50 is a top 50 tanking of WWE wrestlers across brands (Raw, Smackdown, NXT, 205 Live) based on ring work. All of us who are participating submit our own list and then it gets compiled into … Continue reading The NY 50
I got a chance to go to the WWE Heatwave 2019 Tour in Washington DC. House shows are a great time and much easier to sit back and enjoy without some of the jerks who come to televised events. It's also fun for the wrestlers because they can just do their thing without having to … Continue reading WWE Heatwave 2019
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!!!
I know it's way too early to be talking about this, but I'm thinking about it now so here we go. We're on the Road to WrestleMania and despite the developments that took place on the February 11 episode of RAW I fully expect Becky to be in and win the main event at WrestleMania … Continue reading What does the Future Hold for Becky Lynch?
OK no flowery introductions, let's get right to it. The Takeover Show They know their target audience and they give them what they want. I've spoken before about how that's easier to do because of certain structural differences, but I won't rehash that here. I thought the show was very good overall, but I do … Continue reading 2019 Royal Rumble/Takeover Thoughts
First, the quick and easy stuff: The pre-show matches were fine. The Cruiserweight Title Match between Buddy Murphy and Cedric Alexander was good while the Guitar Match between Elias and Bobby Lashley did what it needed to do. The Cruiserweight division has been good most of the year and it's good to hear people chanting … Continue reading TLC 2018 Thoughts
