WWE Monday Night Raw Review: McMahon Attempts Corporate Makeover on Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar Gives C.M. Punk a Beatdown

Posted: August 7, 2013 at 4:19 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

This Monday’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw was once again a mixed bag. There was some good, and some bad. All-in-all however, thanks to the good, it was a pretty entertaining episode. I was not a fan of how they kicked the show off. The whole haircut thing was weak. Everyone knew that Daniel […]

Where is WWE going with Daniel Bryan/Vince McMahon?

Posted: July 30, 2013 at 10:33 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

I’m going to take a break from my usual Raw Review column this week to focus on the big storyline from Raw and the effect it could have on the future of not just WWE, but wrestling in general. Of course the big storyline in the WWE right now centers around Daniel Bryan. Bryan is […]

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

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: WWE ‘Extreme Rules’ PPV at Scottrade Center in St. Louis (5/19)

Posted: May 20, 2013 at 3:58 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, St. Louis Events

Extreme Rules may have received mixed reactions from several of the wrestling column writers from around the nation, but I, for one, was very impressed with the show. Now, I don’t know how it came across on television, but the action from the fifth row of the Scottrade Center was pretty impressive. To make things […]

Preview: WWE Extreme Rules PPV in St. Louis – Cena vs Ryback, Triple H vs Lesnar, Jericho vs Fandango

Posted: May 16, 2013 at 10:18 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, St. Louis Events

Come Sunday, things will get “Extreme” over at Scottrade Center, as the WWE invades St. Louis for the pay per view event. Now, I know that this pay per view has been heavily scrutinized by myself and other wrestling fans for being filled with a lot of rematches and missing some key stars. However, I […]
