I did not expect to be doing a recap for this show. All the talk leading up to it was negative, that the matches were a bunch of rematches from either WrestleMania or the Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia, that the tickets weren't selling well, and that it had little buzz at all. And in … Continue reading WWE Stomping Grounds Thoughts
Unless something changes, we're heading into the home stretch for what is in my opinion the best faction I've ever seen with the exception of the first run of the Four Horsemen. When they first debuted if you'd told me that I would be making that statement today I would have blown you off. But … Continue reading Believing in the Shield
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
With only a few days left, I am going to attempt to do another Year in Review thing here. If you've read any of my previous attempts, sometimes I finish for every thing I talk about (books, movies, wrestling, TV) and sometimes I barely finish one category. Wrestling gets the most traffic around these parts … Continue reading 2018 Year in Review
I really was trying to not write another piece on Roman Reigns until he came back. But the idiots out there will not let the man rest and insist on coming with their stupid hot takes to try and gin up traffic for their websites. Now I'm not above publishing stuff that I know is … Continue reading Seriously, dude?
First the quick and easy: The pre-show stuff was good. Sin Cara showed he can still go and Andrade Cien Almas is legit if you haven't watched him before he got called up. Remember though that things like he and Zelina Vega doing the tranquillo pose together during the match are going to be as … Continue reading Extreme Rules Thoughts
Takeover Chicago Three great, match of the year candidates. The opener for the tag titles is the best tag team match I've seen this year. Orney Lorcan and Danny Burch were made, winning over and earning the respect of a crowd that was cheering the more well known heels the Undisputed Era. Ricochet and Velveteen … Continue reading Money in the Bank 2018/Takeover Chicago Thoughts
My interest in the business was initiated with WrestleMania; as a fan of the A-Team and all the prospect of Mr. T teaming up with Hulk Hogan was too much to turn down. Which of course prompted my Dad (who is the reason spoiler alerts were created) to tell me 'it's fake, they're not really … Continue reading My wrestling fandom
As a lot of you said yesterday morning there wasn't a whole lot of buzz going into this one. I was getting vibes of Fastlane earlier this year when a lot of people were calling for doom and gloom and we got pleasantly surprised. This show......was not that, and got soundly trashed on social media … Continue reading Backlash 2018 Thoughts
The question that looms over the RAW roster every week in light what happened at WrestleMania is.....just who is gonna beat Brock Lesnar? With Roman Reigns having gotten two shots at him in a month and not winning, after a year long buildup, me and most of you seem to have no idea. And sometimes … Continue reading Who’s Next?
