I had not planned on writing about this. Going in this screamed B level pay per view to get us to the draft, and only of the title matches was not a foregone conclusion going in. And yet here I am because it turned out to be much more than that. Liv Morgan vs Carmella … Continue reading Extreme Rules 2021 Thoughts
A night at MSG for WWE Smackdown
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
Roman ‘One Year’ Reigns
Fewer things are more frustrating as a WWE fan as it is when you have a favorite who is hanging around and even occasionally winning one the big titles only for Vince to hedge his bets by either having them lose the big match when they should win, or having them lose the title without … Continue reading Roman ‘One Year’ Reigns
Summerslam 2021 Thoughts
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

There were also rumors of people returning and that a draft … Continue reading Money in the Bank 2021

At the top of that right now is John Cena returning to face none other than Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. Now depending on where you're sitting this might be a great idea or a not so great one. … Continue reading Do we want Cena vs Reigns?
The next step for the Tribal Chief?
When Roman came back and showed us his more aggressive stance along with his new manager Paul Heyman, it seemed to me that he was taking action simply to reclaim what was his and doing it such a way that no one would get the drop on him again - no cashing in the briefcase, … Continue reading The next step for the Tribal Chief?
RIP Ratings Talk
Our long national nightmare may finally be over. Ratings talk is on the run and may be over for good. Finally! What went from a weekly observation in 1996 to a justification for half baked takes in the 2000s to a toxic point scoring tool on Wednesday nights in 2020 may finally have breathed its … Continue reading RIP Ratings Talk
Hail to the Tribal Chief
I gotta start this off by saying that never before in the last six years did I think we would see this: https://twitter.com/WWERomanReigns/status/1388505017330642948?s=19 Roman Reigns has reached a level head and shoulders above everyone in the business right now and in doing so rejuvenated Paul Heyman's storied career and brought a level of performance out … Continue reading Hail to the Tribal Chief
