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...

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...

August 27th, 2012 at 11:17 PM
***PHOTO1***Apparently, 'Summerslam' drew a very large live gate. Given that it was headlined by Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, WWE will look to get as much as possible out of the angle. With that in mind, it was announced that Triple H would explain his future on 'Raw', and rumor...

***PHOTO1***This week, WWE aired its Friday night program from the University of Texas. As of the start of the show, 'Summerslam' did not have a World Heavyweight Championship match on the card.

***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...

August 4th, 2012 at 11:27 PM
***PHOTO1***Last month's 'Money in the Bank' pay per view made it abundantly clear that, in kayfabe terms, Alberto Del Rio has nothing on Sheamus right now. Not only was The Celtic Warrior victorious, but the match wasn't long or close, and it ended with his typical series of finishing moves....

‘Smackdown’ Review: Randy Orton’s Return and a New GM Make for a So-so Episode
August 3rd, 2012 at 10:07 PM
***PHOTO1***The last few episodes of WWE programming have been quite strong, so it seemed reasonable to expect a strong episode of 'Smackdown', though one had to wonder if there was anything left to show after the three-hour episode of 'Raw'. If nothing else, Vince McMahon was set to announce a...

July 27th, 2012 at 10:02 PM
***PHOTO1***Who knows what to expect from 'Smackdown' this week? WWE loaded up the 1000th episode of 'Raw' with so much that it's hard to imagine there being much left. And, clearly, most of the major storylines won't progress until Monday. Still, with that in mind, the show, from Kansas City,...

‘Raw 1000′ Review: a Lot of Fan Service; not Much Wrestling; Lots of Dumb Developments
July 24th, 2012 at 1:02 AM
***PHOTO1***The 1000th episode of ‘Raw’: it’s unprecedented, it’s three hours, it’s from St. Louis. Does anything else need to be said? There’s too much going on to waste time with long-winded introductions. On with the show! Appropriately, a sentimental Vince McMahon entered first in order to introduce Degeneration X, including the...

WWE’s ‘Money in the Bank’ Mostly Delivers, but with a Few Disappointments
July 16th, 2012 at 2:34 AM
***PHOTO1***It would have been tough for WWE to match the success of last year's 'Money in the Bank' pay per view, but it wasn't totally out of the realm of possibility, given that the few announced matches were likely to be strong. What the WWE Universe ended up getting was...
