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 […]

Why Did CM Punk Walk Out on the WWE?

One of the biggest stories in wrestling has been developing since the beginning of the week. CM Punk’s departure from WWE has been met with grumblings that it was in fact a work by the company to give heat to Punk’s upcoming WrestleMania match with Triple H. There are also many who believe that Punk’s […]

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, […]

Review: WWE Monday Night Raw (1/13)

Posted: January 15, 2014 at 9:33 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw continued to build upon the upcoming Royal Rumble pay per view. The main storyline to get a lot of attention was the Daniel Bryan/Bray Wyatt story. While it appeared that Bryan had gone to the dark side and joined the buzzards, apparently things changed on Raw. After opening […]

Read a WWE Fan’s Christmas Wish List Before You Watch the TLC PPV Online Tonight (2013)

Posted: December 15, 2013 at 8:06 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Wrestling

Can the WWE end the year on a good note? In what has been an otherwise crappy year for wrestling, will fans finally get a pay-per-view worth paying for? I am skeptical, to say the least. With Christmas being just weeks away, here is a Christmas wish list from a diehard wrestling fan. I am […]

Review: WWE Monday Night Raw (12/2)

Posted: December 6, 2013 at 9:32 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Wrestling

The latest installment of WWE Raw was another snoozer. Try as they might, the WWE cannot overcome poor writing and trying to rebrand, repackage and resell matches from 2009 that fans’ have seen umpteen times before. It’s a losing battle that the WWE is fighting. I don’t see it improving until the part-time stars return […]

Review: WWE Survivor Series 2013 – Cena vs. Del Rio, Divas Elimination, Big Show vs. Randy Orton

Posted: November 26, 2013 at 9:28 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television

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 […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Recap/Review (11/4) – Big Show vs. Randy Orton For Title? Corporate Kane?

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 […]

WWE Monday Night Raw Recap/Review (10/28) – Damian Sandow Cashes in Money in the Bank, Bryan Feuds with HBK

Posted: October 30, 2013 at 7:14 pm   /   Local, Professional Wrestling, Television Reviews

Things just don’t seem to be getting any better for the WWE. “Hell in a Cell” continued a string in what has been the worst WWE pay per views in recent memory. The lack of build up, mixed with sub par in ring action, gave the event a very lackluster feel. Given the fact that […]
