Watch WWE Pay-Per-View Events at Murphy’s on 21 in St. Louis

Posted: July 20, 2013 at 2:39 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Restaurant Reviews

Wrestling fans in St. Louis can rejoice! Ever since the closing of the Rec Room in South County several years ago, it’s been hard for WWE fans in the area to find a spot to watch pay-per-views. While the Stratford Inn showed a handful of PPVs shortly after the closing of the Rec Room, that […]

WWE Money in the Bank Review / Results: Dolph Ziggler vs Alberto Del Rio, John Cena vs. Mark Henry (2013)

Posted: July 17, 2013 at 6:44 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

Apologies for the late column this week, but I was on vacation in Jamaica. After a 12-hour day of traveling, the first thing I did was fire up the old computer and watch a streaming version of WWE Money in the Bank. As tired as I was, I was quickly awakened by the high-energy Money […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Bray Wyatt Debut, Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus, CM Punk vs Randy Orton

Posted: July 10, 2013 at 5:18 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

This week’s Monday Night Raw was pretty effective in hyping Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay per view. With the debut of Bray Wyatt and the firing of GM Vickie Guerrero, the show still did a great job in promoting the upcoming event. First of all, I have to say that there were two very […]

While the man is no longer with us, there is no doubt that his iconic role as Tony Soprano will live on forever in television history – as one of the top characters of all time.

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Daniel Bryan Turns on Kane, Cena and Mark Henry, C.M. Punk Feuds With Curtis Axel

Posted: July 4, 2013 at 9:33 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

This week’s Monday Night Raw again was middle of the road, as an entire show goes. There was some good and some bad, much like last week. I think the main thing that Raw suffers from is the lack of explanation for some things. The first thing being the McMahon’s; Are they crazy, power-hungry, dictators, […]

The “Masters of Madness” tour featuring Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper rolled through The St. Charles Family Arena on Tuesday night.

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Bryan vs. Orton Street Fight, CM Punk Confronts Paul Heyman

Posted: June 25, 2013 at 3:59 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

While last week’s WWE Raw was a home run from top to bottom, this week’s episode wasn’t up to that standard, but it wasn’t as bad as past episodes either. The main problem I had with this week’s episode was pacing. Hours 1 and 3 were much better than hour 2. The second hour of […]

Sunday, June 30 will mark the beginning of the end for one of television’s top shows. Dexter will be ending it’s run after 8 seasons, leaving a cult following behind.

WWE Monday Night Raw Review/Recap: Christian Returns, Mark Henry Retirement, Brock Lesnar Attacks C.M. Punk

Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:03 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

After a few weeks of no WWE Raw column, I’m back, and with good reason. Let’s face it, the last few weeks of WWE television has been lackluster, and that’s being kind. My mother always taught me that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, not to say anything at all, so I stayed […]

Movie Review: ‘The Purge’ Starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane

Posted: June 6, 2013 at 11:13 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

When I first heard about The Purge, I was very interested in the plot concept. I thought it seemed original and had the possibility to be a movie that actually had the nerve to speak on the social cliques and stereotypes that widely go unmentioned in our nation. Sadly, my hopes were dashed, as this […]
