‘Survivor Series’ Review: a Good Show with Some Odd Surprises
November 19th, 2012 at 12:43 PM
***PHOTO1***'Survivor Series' was one of the most solid nights of content that WWE has produced in some time. Every match basically delivered on expectations, there was a twist that will interest Internet fans (although the casual fan has no way of understanding it), and even the filler "bonus" match was...

‘Survivor Series’ Preview: Can CM Punk Hold the Title for a Year?
November 18th, 2012 at 12:39 PM
***PHOTO1***'Survivor Series' from Indianapolis, IN promises a little bit of everything: a traditional elimination match, a fairly intriguing title match, and a potential for some big surprises. It's enough to almost make one forget that only five matches have been announced for the main card. Hey, when ten people from...

‘Hell in a Cell’ Review: a Lot of Filler, but the Show Mostly Satisfied
October 29th, 2012 at 11:50 AM
***PHOTO1***It would be a bit of a stretch to suggest that 'Hell in a Cell' was a great show, but considering how weak the card was, it's equally difficult to say that it disappointed. There was some decent wrestling and a few genuine surprises. It just seems fair to say...

‘Hell in a Cell’ Preview: Can CM Punk Overcome Ryback?
October 27th, 2012 at 7:13 PM
***PHOTO1***"Hell in a Cell" emanates from Atlanta, GA, this year and only features one match that lives up to the name of the show. But it's a doozy. With only six announced matches, the card definitely looks thin, but the intrigue comes in the form of the fact that the...

World Heavyweight Championship Reigns That Shouldn’t Have Happened Part Two of Three
September 10th, 2012 at 12:01 PM
***PHOTO1***In part 1, World Heavyweight Title reigns from Triple H, Randy Orton, and Rey Mysterio were singled out and criticized. But lousy title runs didn't end in 2006. Here's three more: The Great Khali (July 17, 2007 in a 20-man Battle Royal) This is the ultimate in “What were they thinking?” title...

Potential Opponents for Brock Lesnar: How Do the WWE’s Elite Stack Up?
August 21st, 2012 at 5:40 PM
***PHOTO1***Brock Lesnar's dominant victory over Triple H at 'Summerslam' made it fairly clear that WWE isn't looking to just job him out to anyone with whom they can get him in the ring, and that's a good thing. It also seemed to be a safe assumption that he wouldn't be...

‘Raw’ Review: Post-’Summerslam’ Show is Mostly Solid
August 20th, 2012 at 11:34 PM
***PHOTO1***Love it, hate it, or anything in-between, 'Summerslam' gave a fairly strong indication of where the major story lines are going. So it was likely that tonight's 'Raw' from Fresno, California wasn't going to contain many surprises. Still, as any wrestling fan knows, predictability isn't always a bad thing. What...

‘Summerslam’ Predictions: the Sports Media 101 PPV Panel Returns
August 18th, 2012 at 8:08 PM
***PHOTO1***It’s just about time for the 25th anniversary of WWE’s biggest party of the summer, ‘Summerslam', from Los Angeles! For years, it seems to be a running trend to build up and impressive-sounding card and then deliver a disappointing show, but this year, well… the card doesn’t sound too impressive....

Five Big Flaws in WWE’s ‘Summerslam’ Card
August 14th, 2012 at 4:08 PM
***PHOTO1***This Sunday's 'Summerslam' event has a few matches that matter: despite all the flaws in the build-up, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar feels like a big match, CM Punk vs. John Cena vs. Big Show is driven by Punk's unpredictable character development, and Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho is likely...

‘Raw’ Review: Shawn Michaels and Brock Lesnar Highlight a Decent Show
August 6th, 2012 at 11:15 PM
***PHOTO1***CM Punk was easily the guy people were talking about for the last two weeks of 'Raw', though Daniel Bryan wasn't too far behind. Given that it's 'Shawn Michaels Appreciation Night' in San Antonio, would that remain the case? WWE had three hours to give the answer, and with 'Summerslam'...

‘Raw’ Review: Strong Booking Clashes with Exhausting Three-Hour Format
July 30th, 2012 at 11:11 PM
***PHOTO1***Dear Lord. Three hours of 'Raw'. Every week. Is this really happening? Alright, WWE, so be it. There's a good bit riding on this episode due to a desire to follow up on last week's big ratings and storylines, as well as a need to prove that this new format...
