The WWE Universe Is Astonishing, but You Have to Experience It Live

WWE Universe, you are amazing. Initially, I was going to write up this post following the WWE’s weekend trip to Columbus, Ohio for NXT and Money in the Bank. However, technological and personal issues put it on the back burner. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I could digest and evaluate the upcoming WWE events through my refreshed lenses.

Flashback: Brock Lesnar suplexes John Cena to near extinction at SummerSlam 2014

“It was built up as the fight of the Summer. And it certainly delivered. It was one way traffic early on with Lesnar swinging the proverbial hammer. Cena would show signs of life from time to time only to endure even more of a thrashing as a punishment. “Lesnar would hit three consecutive German suplexes and would follow them up by not so politely asking for Cena to “Die...

Mark Henry: Misused, Overlooked and Poorly Booked

There’s nothing like 2011 Mark Henry. He was a man on a mission, hell-bent on reaching the top and wouldn’t let anything stand in his way. He was tough, he was vicious and he was merciless. He wanted to maim, he wanted to destroy and he wanted the World Heavyweight Championship. WWE Night of Champions saw him gain that prize and it was the culmination of 15 year’s worth...

WWE RAW Records Second Lowest Non-Holiday Rating Since 1997

The RAW ratings are in for this week and people aren’t happy. The June 29 RAW did the second-lowest RAW rating for a non-holiday show in almost twenty years. The fans are sending a message and the message here is that they aren’t happy and will find something else to do with their Monday nights until things change. I don’t blog much about the ratings because quite frankly...

Kevin Owens Is Breaking The WWE Mold

I will be the first to admit that I was wrong and guess what? I was wrong about Kevin Owens. The WWE has shown a commitment to Owens not seen since the Shield and the payoff may be the next elite superstar of the future. As excited as some were about Owens coming in to wrestle John Cena, it was hard to ignore the obvious. The history of WWE creative shows that they get it wrong...

WWE: Building One Beast Up, Tearing One Down

The WWE did Roman Reigns a favor when it decided to place him in a program with Bray Wyatt. The idea of taking the company’s would be Superman and pitting him against the master of manipulation at Battleground has all the makings of a great storyline that can only help Reigns ascend further up the company’s food chain. Maybe this will move toward a possible WWE title run down...

WWE: Judging Hulk Hogan by Modern Standards

Hulk Hogan: the man, the myth … the … well, myth is a good place to stop. Hogan in many ways is the gatekeeper to the modern era of professional wrestling. (Ric Flair is the other one, but let me focus on one overhyped legend at a time). With the age of Hogan, we saw professional wrestling move away from the arenas and move away from a regular, live, serialized entertainment...

WWE Money in the Bank: John Cena Won the Match, Kevin Owens is Winning the War

When is the last time you saw a John Cena match and thought it might have been the best matches on the card if not THE best of the night? Thank the good lord for Kevin Owens. Forget the ending and the “Happy Days Moment” which really had no place after he pinned Owens. (I am so glad Cena got planted) Cena showed he can still put on one hell of a match. Owens and Cena have...

PDP Reaction: Money in the Bank

The WWE Money in the Bank event is in the books. Here’s a quick look back at the event and what I liked and didn’t like.

John Cena defeats Kevin Owens in rematch at MITB

A champion vs. champion match is always fun to watch, and tonight’s between United States Champion John Cena and NXT Champion Kevin Owens was no exception. In a hard-fought battle with too many near-finishes to count, Cena weathered the storm against the ever-aggressive Owens. Simply put, there are few words one can use to do this match justice. The highly pro-Owens crowd got behind...

Here we are again, less than a week out from WWE Money in the Bank 2015. It seems like just yesterday I was previewing the Elimination Chamber because well…that was less than two weeks ago. That was in the past and MITB is in the present. Before I get into the card, I think that the WWE really needed some space here between shows, more than two weeks at least. Elimination Chamber...

Looking back at WWE Raw and a look ahead to Money in the Bank.

The Raw before the Money in the Bank PPV emanated from New Orleans last night. Before I get into the show, when will the WWE universe smarten up and just buy the network? Why are you still paying a ridiculous amount of money for each PPV, when for the price of 2 PPV’s you can have the entire Network all year long? I’d love to hear an explanation for that from any fan.

WWE: The John Cena Debate: Cena Will NEVER Turn Heel
