The WWE will be presenting its first Network-only special event from the main-roster on Sunday night. The Elimination Chamber returns with two chamber matches in addition to a rivalry renewed and the main-roster debut of the NXT star of the future. Let's break down the card and take a look at the top matches on Sunday's event.
Kevin Owens is the newest NXT superstar to kick down the front door of the WWE and make an immediate impact with his brash behavior. All he did was challenge the money train of the company, John Cena.
Long before Goldberg went through opponents right and left en route to becoming one of the most intimidating men in professional wrestling, the Road Warriors pretty much beat everyone in their sight.
On May 19, 2015, Whitesnake, led by singer David Coverdale, released its new CD, "The Purple Album." As many rock fans know, Whitesnake is famous for its 80s anthems, such as "Here I Go Again," "Still of the Night," etc., and the ballad, "Is This Love." The band is also famous for classic songs like "Fool For Your Loving," "Slow 'N' Easy, etc. Whitesnake lead singer David Coverdale...
Has the WWE replanted the seed that will finally see the Ryback experiment come to fruition? After a stellar performance at the Payback pay-per-view on Sunday night, the “Big Guy” may have finally gotten over with the fans as a wrestler who should be taken seriously – as a contender and not an over-sized pretender.
Everything about Rollins’ push as champion is wrong. When he won the title I expected a CM Punk type of heel championship run. He had the potential to be the perfect “do what ever it takes to keep the title,” beatable champion he was supposed to be. Instead, Seth's being made out to look like a coward.
We are now two months into the Seth Rollins era as WWE world champion and one thing has become abundantly clear. It’s not working. The champ needs a makeover and with a little more depth to his character, he may be able to turn it around before all is lost.
Kevin Owens retained his NXT Championship title in a match against Sami Zayn at NXT’s special event, Unstoppable, on Wednesday night, and subsequently began a feud with new NXT star, Samoa Joe. It’s more than likely that this feud will continue in NXT, which makes it seem as though Owens’ match with John Cena at Elimination Chamber will be a one-and-done type of event.
This week's episode opens with Roman Reigns making his way down to the ring. He says he has a bit of bad news: he didn't win at Payback. But, he has some good news: he had a really good time at Payback. Any time you punch Seth Rollins in the mouth, it's a good time.
Nobody ever doubted whether Kevin Owens had the tools to make the switch to the WWE. Yet even Owen’s supporters are impressed with his quick success in making the transition yet according to Owens, it really hasn’t been much of a transition at all.
TNA Wrestling are fighting back against reports that Impact Wrestling has been cancelled effective this September by Destination America. Unfortunately TNA are spending more time attacking and threatening the source as opposed to commenting on the actual story reported.
Let me get this out of the way right from the start: I don't dislike Sandow. Quite the contrary. He's a fantastic in-ring athlete and his work on the mic was sublime. It's the gimmicks he's been forced to work with that I'm not a fan of.
It only took him sixteen long years to get there but Samoa Joe is finally in the WWE. Joe debuted at the conclusion of the NXT Unstoppable Network special, confirming numerous reports throughout the week that predicted Joe would debut at the event.
TNA Wrestling is facing a familiar crisis. A new report suggests that Impact Wrestling may be homeless come this fall as Destination America has reportedly exercised its option to cancel Impact Wrestling programming by the end of September 2015.
My early memories of the WWE are sometimes hazy, but the characters that are encompassed by that haze are often crystal clear. Back when the WWF used enhancement talent to beef up their weekly events, there was one man, among many, who stood out from the much forgotten pack.
No family made a bigger impact in wrestling than those rowdy, scrappy kids from the Prairies of Alberta, Canada.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is a fairly modest guy and is never one to toot his own horn. Yet Austin has made one thing perfectly clear in recent years, he was the biggest draw in WWE history and he doesn't care if your name is Hogan or Rock, he wants his respect.
What I’ve grown to admire from Sean Oliver is his ability to shape the direction with questions about others. This time, he elicits a lot of insight about Sabu by asking questions about the Sheik. We learn more about Sabu as a person by hearing him talk about his biggest influence, and see glimpses of personality, industry approaches, and family from this approach.
The WWE will be presenting its first big Network-only brand event in two weeks. The network will host an exclusive broadcast of the 2015 Elimination Chamber show which features a lineup more impressive than the last two pay-per-views.
No one really thought a tag team between “Stunning” Steve Austin and “Flyin’” Brian Pillman would amount to anything in WCW. But the success of the two former singles stars into a dynamite tag team is proof opposites attract.
As the boxing world recovers from “the fight of the decade” between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jnr, we must not forget that there are other great upcoming bouts to whet the appetite of boxing fans and bettors alike. The show must go on as they say, and there is a fantastic set of matches coming up in May and throughout the summer months.
WWE Payback was a one-match show. Fortunately for the WWE that one match was one of the best in awhile. The show will be remembered for a thrilling main-event which featured a brief reunion of the Shield. Unfortunately the rest of the show was an event that should and will be forgotten.
This week opens with Bray Wyatt appearing on the screen. He says that, last Monday night, Ryback stood toe-to-toe with fate, and won. But Wyatt knows that, beneath the muscle-made facade, is an Achilles heel.
WWE Payback is right around the corner and quite honestly there isn't a whole lot to get excited about. The event is essentially a two-match show yet history confirms that events which typically have low expectations going in are generally the ones that surprise you.
With the tragic news that Daniel Bryan will have to surrender a championship for the second time in the space of the year, it opens up new opportunities for other stars to have a run with the prestigious championship. After the announcement that the title would be up for grabs inside the returning Elimination Chamber, now seems as good of a time as any to take a look at the contenders...
