WWE WrestleMania 33 Rumors and Probable Matches

We are less than two months away from WWE WrestleMania 33 and only two matches have been confirmed. While nothing is official, rumors and common sense can dictate at least the probable main card for this year’s marquee event.

Samoa Joe: Seek and Destroy in WWE

Samoa Joe’s reputation as the baddest man on the planet has been bolstered far beyond anything that pro wrestling fans could ever imagine. Thanks to his recent Raw destruction of Seth Rollins and his first main roster win against Roman Reigns, the WWE faithful have indeed been put on notice.

WWE Is Catching Fire At The Right Time

If Jim Ross were on the call for both Raw and SmackDown Live from this week he would have something to say about the events after Elimination Chamber that has the wrestling world abuzz with excitement.

Bray Wyatt Gets His WWE World Title

The road to WWE WrestleMania took a hard curve at the 2017 Elimination Chamber pay per view. It’s now starting to make sense with Randy Orton’s win at the Royal Rumble last month. These days we live in a world of professional wrestling where people don’t have the patience for storylines to develop; something I sorely miss from back in the day. But give the bookers credit...

WWE Elimination Chamber 2017: A Few Thoughts

They are coming out of the woodwork, according to Booker T. The women of WWE are moving and shaking both brands, much to the delight of the fans who have been waiting for the continuation of the “revolution” this company promoted a year and a half ago. On Sunday night at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, we saw just how solid the SmackDown Live brand has become, partly because...

Does the Undertaker’s WWE WrestleMania Streak Deserve to Be Surpassed?

Many times in the last few WWE WrestleMania’s whenever The Undertaker’s match would come on, I always figured that no matter how worked up I got over every close 2-count, The Undertaker would prevail. After going 21 straight matches with a victory, it was a farfetched idea that The Undertaker would ever lose. So when Brock Lesnar came along, the general consensus was that they...

Handicapping the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 Main Event

Six men enter, one will leave with the WWE World Title. Odds are it will not be the current champion John Cena. If Elimination Chamber means anything, it will be the arc of setting up a match between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. And if WWE was smart, it would keep the belt on Wyatt for the foreseeable future. The company has shown its hand with Monday Night Raw, guaranteeing a win...

Repost – Ranking The WWE Elimination Chamber Matches

Originally published February 18, 2014 – It’s War Games, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble all in one – it’s the Elimination Chamber? Devised in kayfabe by Eric Bischoff over a decade ago, the Chamber has been used to decide both championships and championship opportunities. The oft-stated forboding nature of this domed structure is palpable enough to have spun off its own...

What’s Next? The WWE SmackDown Edition

Time Off Isn’t A Bad Thing in Pro Wrestling

When I heard the news about Seth Rollins going down to injury after Samoa Joe surprise attacked him on WWE Monday Night Raw the night after the WWE Royal Rumble 2017, I was bummed because I was looking forward to the possible WrestleMania match between Rollins and Triple H. More I thought about Rollins going down to injury the second time under two years, more I thought about the...

The Seth Rollins Injury and Other WWE Thoughts

Evidently, the news of Seth Rollins re-injuring his surgically repaired knee is REAL! Even though Samoa Joe has a stellar job of selling the injury that occurred on Monday night when the Samoan attacked The Architect to close out the evening following the WWE Royal Rumble. The move to bring Joe to the main roster to work in Triple H’s place as an opponent for his former pupil was...

Randy Orton vs. John Cena at WWE WrestleMania 33 Needs a Stipulation

Unless WWE’s booking gurus have a change of heart, victory at the 2017 Royal Rumble has secured Randy Orton’s in the main event of WrestleMania 33. And should John Cena successfully defend his title in the Elimination Chamber, the two veterans will be on course to clash once again at the grandest stage of them all. Orton vs. Cena has been done so many times over the years that...

Beneath the Surface of WWE Royal Rumble 2017

It has been days since the Royal Rumble has concluded.  Fans are still talking about the shocking win of Randy Orton and the events that has followed the Rumble since then.  Call it a curve ball or a monkey wrench thrown in, but after some time reflecting I can only hope that an Orton and John Cena win was just to keep fans on their toes.  What I think and what the company thinks...

What’s Next? The WWE RAW Edition

These days, when I watch wrestling, I watch with my son Jake.  Jake is just about 15 years old, and has been a WWE fan for almost since he could walk.  Watching wrestling together is a way for us to connect and share a common interest.  The battles in the ring provide us with endless conversation fodder and a basket full of lifelong memories. I started to understand that Jake...

WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Recap

Unlike last year, the WWE made sure the Royal Rumble wasn’t on the same day at the NFL conference championship games.  The 2017 card had potential to be one of the better Rumbles in recent memory.  For the most part it didn’t disappoint.  It was a hot crowd for most of the evening.  Speaking of the crowd, it was hard to miss the individual sticking up the big head of a guy...

WWE Royal Rumble Match 2017 Results Reaction – Ranking Every Superstar from 1 to 30

They did it. The WWE found a way to turn the most hyped Royal Rumble of all time into a mediocre affair and all because they were too scared to get creative. Regardless, Randy Orton has won his second Royal Rumble and that should make for intriguing viewing and while many storylines were completely disregarded, a few more were born out of this match. So from worst (30) to first ...

Say Hello to the WWE Royal Rumble Bad Guys

When WWE presents its 30th Royal Rumble on Sunday in San Antonio, the company should consider doing something it’s never done before.  There are eight matches on the card, if you include the two bouts on the pre-show.  Vince McMahon and his crew need to seriously consider putting heels over in every single one of them. WWE likes to have balanced outcomes, particularly in pay...

The Seth Rollins Factor in the WWE Royal Rumble

The Royal Rumble is just days away and while many are predicting just exactly who will win the prestigious event, one has to wonder about Seth Rollins.  Unquestionably Rollins has been on a roll since his return in April of last year.  In a shocking swerve on this past Raw, Rollins was defeated by Sami Zayn, and thus lost his spot in the Rumble.

The Forgotten First WWE Royal Rumble

WWE history is a funny thing. World Wrestling Entertainment history can often times be just as scripted as the matches. The first Royal Rumble match and winner would be an example of this as the event promoted as the first Rumble was really not the first Rumble at all. Another Royal Rumble? How could that be? Sorry Hacksaw but you are not the first Rumble winner. Not only was there...
