The WWE’s 4th biggest pay per view of the year, Survivor Series, took place on Sunday night. And that’s about the most favorable thing I can say about it.
Anyone who forked over $55 of their hard-earned money was fortunate to see a Divas elimination match, John Cena beating Alberto Del Rio for the millionth time, and an over-the-hill and injured Big Show losing to Randy Orton. Yes, what once was one of the WWE’s biggest and best pay-per-view’s looked like a bad episode of Monday Night Raw.
It is becoming more and clearer to WWE viewer’s that the company does not care what the fans think. Speaking of the fans, anyone who watched the pay per view last night obviously could hear the displeasure of the fans’ in attendance over the main event of Orton vs Big Show. Once again, the WWE ended a pay per view with a boring, slow match that ended with a…wait for it…a screw job ending! Are you serious? Another WWE pay per view ended with a screw job? That’s right boys and girls, the WWE product is officially screwed over the customers once again.
So. I’d began writing the draft of a Hot Stove Preview for the Cardinals, but then I got lazy and completely forgot to finish it up. In the meantime, the Cardinals managed to solve their two biggest positional problems via trades and free agency.
Where does that leave this article? Good question. Obviously the Cardinals made a big splash this weekend, solidifying the middle of their infield by signing free agent Jhonny Peralta to a four-year deal worth $53 million. As some of my friends were hoping to land him, in discussions I brazenly threw out there I thought he was too expensive and risky for the Cardinals to make a move on him.
Turns out I know nothing about baseball, apparently.
This week on Reel Spoilers it’s all about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Bad news for fans of snark because, well…we all actually liked it. But you can’t talk about a movie based on a series of “Young Adult” novels without bringing up Twilight. So our snark streak continues abated. Whew!
Also, we give a textual analysis of the three biggest “Kid Lit” properties – Twilight, Hunger Games, and Harry Potter. Don’t worry. It’s not as boring as it sounds.
It’s Reel Spoilers #23 – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. May the podcasts be ever in your favor.
Enter to win a pass for four!

This year is a special year. Not because of our stupendous failings to supply a decent healthcare website for the people. No. This year is special because it marks the release of Sony’s newest gaming system. You can tell the staff here at ReviewSTL have our priorities straight.
The PlayStation 4 is Sony’s hunter towards Microsoft’s Xbox One. And like any good hunter, you need weapons, tools and a strategy. Sony has offered a somewhat lackluster lineup for its release titles to go alongside the PS4. Titles like Knack did little to instil confidence in the Japanese behemoth’s plans.
