Review: WWE Payback 2014

Posted: June 4, 2014 at 8:59 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

WWE Payback was just what the doctor ordered for the WWE: an entertaining pay per view. It’s just a shame that the company has done a lousy job of promoting the last two pay per view’s. Both have featured some great wrestling and wonderful story telling. Sunday’s event kicked off with Cesaro vs. Sheamus. Paul […]

Review: WWE Extreme Rules PPV (5/3)

Posted: May 7, 2014 at 11:33 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

To say the WWE’s booking of Extreme Rules was poor would be an understatement. It seemed like no one cared to watch this pay per view, but in the end I’m pretty sure most wrestling fans were pleasantly surprised. The show kicked off with a triple threat match between RVD, Jack Swagger, and Cesaro. This […]

WWE Review: WrestleMania 30 – A Weekend to Remember

Posted: April 8, 2014 at 11:15 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

WrestleMania weekend was everything I thought it would be. Fun, entertaining, and one hell of a long drive! I embarked on the journey to New Orleans with three friends. We left Thursday night, stopped in Tunica, which was not a good idea. The slot machines did not treat me well, however, the rest of the […]

With WrestleMania 30 less than a week away, it’s time to look at the state of the WWE heading into the SuperBowl of wrestling. If Monday night’s Raw was any indication, WWE has done a fine job hyping 3 of the 8 scheduled matches. Unfortunately, that leaves 5 that may bore viewers. The biggest disappointment […]

This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw was, in my mind, a pivotal episode for the WWE. Not only did the WWE deliver a solid show, they got fans excited for the granddaddy of them all, WrestleMania 30. Raw kicked off with The Immortal, and leathery looking, Hulk Hogan making his way to the ring. […]

Review: WWE Royal Rumble 2014, Batista Wins Shot at the Belt at WrestleMania XXX

Posted: January 28, 2014 at 8:07 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

The first WWE pay per view of the year was everything I thought it would be; fun, entertaining, predictable and controversial. The Royal Rumble started with a bang, in perhaps one of the best matches in the pay per view’s history. Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt put on a match filled with emotion and physicality, […]
