Ranking the Entire WWE WrestleMania 33 Card from Worst to First

The WWE have so far done a great job with the build-up for a lot of the WrestleMania card. The feuds are good on both brands and there’s a general sense of anticipation about the show as a whole. Of course, some feuds have been better than others and some haven’t quite taken off. Here is the WrestleMania card from worst build-up to best. Unknown: Samoa Joe and Finn Balor This...

Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker: What Fans Missed with this WWE Showdown

The match between Roman Reigns and The Undertaker was made official on Monday prior to Raw.  The two men would come face to face last week for the first time since the Royal Rumble, where Reigns eliminated the Dead Man from the match. Upon the news there were many who felt that there isn’t enough time to build a proper feud between the two men.  However, if anyone noticed, Reigns...

March Madness 2017 – WWE Style

Perhaps the biggest difference between WWE and “legitimate” sports (aside from pre-determined outcomes) is that wins and losses don’t really matter.  A wrestler’s record isn’t flashed on the screen as he heads down the ramp, and there are no standings to follow in the daily paper.  (Or wherever you get your standings from these days.) As every college basketball fan knows...

WWE WrestleMania 33: One More Match For Shawn Michaels?

Is there still one more match left in The Heartbreak Kid before he truly hangs up his boots? While Shawn Michaels proclaimed for years that is done being an in-ring performer for WWE, the former world champion and one of the most popular wrestlers to ever set foot in a ring had some interesting comments about who he might want to face if he were to lace them up again. With rumors...

Austin Aries Returns and Other WWE Thoughts

It looks like Austin Aries is finally returning to action. After an injury sidelined the cruiserweight, Aries made a statement on Monday night by decking Neville to set up a Cruiserweight Title match at WrestleMania 33. The segment might have been the best of the evening from Chicago as Monday Night Raw did its best to recover from a dismal Fastlane pay-per-view. The addition of...

Rewriting History – WWE Fastlane 2017 Edition

With less than a month before April 2nd and WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, things are heating up on both Raw and SmackDown.  However, while the blue brand delivered a compelling performance at Elimination Chamber, the Raw crew just completed a disastrous affair with Fastlane. The booking at last Sunday’s event was so bad that many WrestleMania feuds are now somehow less compelling...

Bill Goldberg Needed to Win at WWE Fastlane 2017

Fans are in a rage on social media after Bill Goldberg dethroned WWE Universal champion Kevin Owens in under a minute at Fastlane 2017. Yet anyone who even casually watched WWE TV since Survivor Series should have been prepared for the highly predictable result. With all due respect to the critics of the Fastlane main-event, their anger and disappointment is tough to comprehend....

WWE Fastlane 2017 Had Little Drive or Acceleration

We are getting closer to WWE WrestleMania 33. The final stop in WWE’s journey to the mega event took place in Milwaukee on Sunday night with the Fastlane pay-per-view. The bus toward Orlando should have kept on going. There was nothing redeeming about this pay-per-view. The one show that had to deliver since SmackDown Live had such a solid event at Elimination Chamber. Raw fell...

5 Reasons Kevin Owens Should Keep the Title at WWE Fastlane 2017

With roughly 30 days remaining before WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, it looks like WWE has put most of its eggs in the Brock Lesnar/Bill Goldberg basket.  The next biggest name in the company, John Cena, appears to be headed for a mixed tag match, and The Undertaker’s opponent hasn’t been set yet.  As it stands, the clash between Lesnar and Goldberg appears to be the focus. The...

WWE WrestleMania 33: Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt Must Deliver

Now that wrestling fans have witnessed arguably the greatest promo since CM Punk’s time bomb, what happens now between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt. Like all good things, there are consequences for changing direction, and in discussing the confrontation between Orton and Wyatt, I wonder what happens to both AJ Styles and Luke Harper. Actually, Styles will be fine as a match at WrestleMania...

The Curious Possibility of AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon at WWE WrestleMania 33

When Shane McMahon returned to WWE in February 2016, many fans were glad to see him back. The prodigal McMahon had finally come home, and he brought an energy that made the brand extension between Raw and SmackDown Live that much more exciting. But instead of just being a corporate character on TV as his sister Stephanie had, it quickly became obvious that Shane was back for...

WWE SmackDown Slays the Competition Heading into WrestleMania 33

Guys, we gotta talk about Smackdown. WWE Smackdown has done their homework and has put their best foot forward on the road to WrestleMania.  To which the blue brand has been doing fairly well since the brand split, Tuesday night’s episode was top notch for me.  We had great matches and stellar work from the likes of The Miz, Baron Corbin and Bray Wyatt.  After years of subpar...

33 WrestleMania Backstage Stories and WWE Urban Legends

Some of the best WrestleMania stories weren’t necessarily told inside of the ring. Disagreements, controversies, and changes in plans behind classic WWE matches were kept behind the scenes and kept in the locker room…until now. 32 years of WrestleMania events have produced plenty of headaches for Vince McMahon. It isn’t always easy trying to get WWE stars to do business and...

The WWE Retirement of Rosa Mendes

Earlier this month, Rosa Mendes announced her retirement from the WWE after giving birth to her daughter. While Rosa might most be remembered for being a manager for the tag team of Primo and Epico, she should be remembered for more than that. Early WWE Career Rosa debuted in 2008 as a big fan of Beth Phoenix. She would bring signs to all the shows, and would scream her devotion...

WWE WrestleMania 33 Title Picture – SmackDown Live Edition

WrestleMania 33 is just about a month away, and the card is still (mostly) a mystery.  Usually, we have a pretty good idea of how things will shape up heading into wrestling’s biggest night of the year.  This year, it’s just not clear.  Last week, I talked about what I thought should happen with the championship belts contested on Monday Night Raw.  This time around, we...

Women’s wrestling in the WWE is now established after a two-year renaissance and is ready to consolidate all of that good work in 2017. Who the WWE choose to elevate this year will be a defining part of the division long term as it sets its rosters up for the coming years. So who has the brightest 2017 ahead of them and who has the dimmest, let’s rank them ALL here. Tamina...

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. This year’s WrestleMania appears as if it will return to the big-match format. Injuries and a depleted talent roster produced one of the most lackluster...

Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar Does Not Need WWE Universal Championship

The writings are all but on the wall for this upcoming battle between two of the WWE’s biggest Superstars.  In what will likely be a final clash between Goldberg and Lesnar, perhaps it will be for the WWE Universal Championship.  Goldberg will take on Champion Kevin Owens this coming up Sunday at Fastlane.  Considering his track record thus far Goldberg will seek, destroy, and...

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. This is not the man that spent a lifetime on the independent circuit with no way into the...

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. Business has certainly picked up. After watching Bray Wyatt capture the WWE World Title in the Elimination Chamber match and then tuning in on Monday night to see Kevin Owens turn...

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...
