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 […]

Review: WWE Monday Night Raw (3/3)

Posted: March 6, 2014 at 10:03 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

The WWE sure knows how to play the fans. Raw was live from Chicago this week. After weeks of wondering what would happen due to local boy and company star CM Punk leaving, Raw went off without a hitch, and without Punk. Much to the chagrin of the fans, Punk never showed. What made it […]

Posted: February 25, 2014 at 11:41 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

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, […]

Damn, this was a real letdown for wrestling fans. I waited all day for Monday Night Raw. I can’t remember the time I was so excited to see an episode of WWE wrestling. There were so many angles that had the potential to make Monday’s episode a great show, but ultimately, I would compare Raw […]

Posted: November 7, 2013 at 10:41 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

Well, it was back to the crapper for Monday Night Raw this week. I actually decided to watch it live, rather than DVR it, which made it even worse. There’s something to be said for the ability to be able to fast forward through a lot of the junk the WWE puts on television these […]
