WWE Clash of the Champions 2017 Preview and Predictions

Remember when you were a kid, and you couldn’t wait for Christmas to come? You’d get more and more excited as each day passed until the moment finally arrived. You shook your parents awake at 5AM and rushed to the tree. Your mom and dad sat blearily on the sofa and watched as you grabbed a brightly-wrapped package. The possibilities were endless. You tore off the wrapper and pried...

WWE Fall 2017 Good, Bad and Ugly

With more than a week to go before Clash of Champions, and more than a month before the Royal Rumble, WWE programming has slid into something like cruise control. We’re not really into WrestleMania season yet, but the shows have to be interesting enough to keep the WWE Universe happy. Even though we’re in a bit of a lull between big events, there are still a lot of things happening...

Jason Jordan’s Slow WWE Road To Relevancy

Jason Jordan is going to be okay. Not everyone believes that right now and it’s understandable. After all WWE has been known to drop the ball when it comes to getting younger talent over. Every Superstar can’t be Seth Rollins or Dean Ambrose. Sometimes it’s a hit or a miss. Sometimes the company has no idea what it’s doing. Zack Ryder is the perennial example of this but he’s still...

The Professor’s WWE Fall 2017 Progress Report

Fresh off the heels of a very successful Survivor Series PPV, the WWE is now settling in for that stretch of the year known as The Road to WrestleMania (TRTWM). Though the official start of TRTWM isn’t until Royal Rumble, discerning fans can see the pieces are already falling into place for April 8th in New Orleans. With that in mind, I’ve been keeping a close eye on both Raw and...

Finn Balor: Fact and Fiction

Finn Balor should be over. He should be the biggest star on Monday Night Raw. He should be the WWE Universal champion and he should be selling out arenas all over the world as the main event star. This is Finn Balor’s time and WWE should make it happen. This is what WWE fans are saying about the Irish-born Superstar. In fact they’ve been saying it for quite some time. But it’s really...

WWE Survivor Series 2017 Weekend Review

WWE celebrated Survivor Series Weekend last Saturday and Sunday in Houston, and the company should indeed be celebrating. Both shows were outstanding, and gave the WWE Universe many things to be thankful for. Instead of going through every match, we’ll just take a big-picture view and discuss the events in general. (That way, you can read between helpings of your Thanksgiving feast...

WWE Survivor Series 2017 Results, Bookings, and Analysis

Here we go! KICK-OFF SHOW ELIAS vs. MATT HARDY Bad Booking: This match Nothing against the both superstars. But this match was unnecessary. A win against Matt Hardy doesn’t really do much for Elias when it’s so early in the pre-show. A loss for Matt Hardy is just nonsensical. Does this serve to push Matt towards “broken” territory? Most likely not. CRUISERWEIGHT TITLE: ENZO AMORE...

WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames Results, Bookings, and Analysis

Here we go! LARS SULLIVAN vs. KASSIUS OHNO Good Booking: Lars is dominant. A lot of people were probably not happy with this match happening as they were sure that Ohno was going to put Sullivan over. Those same people are probably more upset with Ohno essentially getting squashed. But this is the right way to go. Ohno is such a spectacular ring general in that not only does he know...

Looking Up at The Lights: WCW Halloween Havoc 1991

When Ric Flair left WCW in the summer of 1991, the promotion was in rebuilding mode. Flair went scorched earth on the promotion and the dynamic duo of Jim Herd and Dusty Rhodes needed to book a card that would make the fans forget about Flair. That was an almost impossible task, so a card that would show that WCW is making the effort to pick up the pieces and keep the trust of the...

Top 25 WWE Survivor Series Elimination Matches

Originally published: November 13, 2015 – Survivor Series just ain’t what it used to be. First, it was Thanksgiving night. Then it was Thanksgiving eve. Then it moved indiscriminately to just any old Sunday in November. When it started, it was all about the elimination matches. Now it’s about the typically-rushed storylines that are often back-burnered in favor of whatever Cena or...

The Spontaneous Theme of WWE Survivor Series 2017

Survivor Series 2017 takes place Sunday night with much hype and big promises.  Much of that has been brought on by surprises that are leaving fans excited and looking forward to the big four event.  One can say Survivor Series often serves as a prelude leading towards the Royal Rumble and ultimately, WrestleMania.  After both Raw and Smackdown this week, that hasn’t been more apparent...

This weekend, the WWE Universe will be treated to two shows from Houston. On Saturday, the stars of NXT get together to present Takeover: War Games while the superstars from Raw and SmackDown live will clash on Sunday at Survivor Series. Both cards appear to be set (with the exception of one empty slot on the SmackDown women’s team that will probably be filled by Natalya). As usual...

Paige Hints at WWE Return After Being Included in New 2K18 Video Game

After being involved in a lot of mishaps, the 25-year-old wrestler might make a huge return in the industry. The hints came from the 2K18 video game that includes her among the selectable players. At this time, there are only speculations that the athlete that was out of the ring for over a year now due to the injuries, drug suspensions, and even a sex tape that leaked, could return...

Rebooking WWE Survivor Series 2017 with the Professor

We’re still a week and a half away from WWE’s next PPV offering. Survivor Series will take place in Houston on November 19th. As WWE is anxious to remind us all, it’s the one night of the year that SmackDown Live stars battle with those from Raw (unless AJ Styles gets drafted due to a viral outbreak). Since it’s brand vs. brand, no championships will be on the line. Instead, the...

WWE Autumn Angst – Random Thoughts with the Professor

WWE is in a lull right now. We’re two weeks past TLC and just about three weeks away from Survivor Series. With the new PPV schedule since the brand split, a month without a PPV on Sunday night seems like an eternity. That’s not to say there’s nothing going on in WWE. Since the day before TLC, WWE has had an outbreak of viral meningitis, fired several superstars, seen the returns...

The Professor’s WWE TLC 207 Review and Rehash

It was a strange night last Sunday at WWE’s yearly TLC event. Two of the headliners for the card, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt, were sidelined with what WWE termed a “viral infection,” so the company was left scrambling to fill two big holes in the lineup. The absence of Wyatt and Reigns may have been a blessing in disguise for WWE. The company replaced Reigns with Raw General Manager...

Strong Style: Roderick Strong’s Career Is 17 Years in the Making

If you heard the name Chris Lindsey, not very much would come to mind. The name itself doesn’t suggest wrestler, and if it did, where and when he wrestled would be unknown to the listener. However, if we said Chris Lindsey was the name of the man known as Roderick Strong, wrestling fans’ ears would hopefully perk up. In his career, he has been a champion several times over, and has...

Between these two talents, one of them is a stepping stone and the other still a credible challenger for the title.

Is Neville’s WWE Walk Out the Real Deal or Not?

Last week, fans were shocked to learn that Neville could have possibly walked out of WWE.  Considering that Austin Aries had left the company some months earlier, fans immediately wondered if the King of the Cruiserweights has had enough of his booking direction.  With Enzo Amore in the mix with rumors of questionable backstage behavior, the plot thickens so to speak. There hasn...

WWE’s Raw superstars will travel to my home state of Minnesota Sunday for the next WWE PPV, Tables, Ladders and Chairs. This show is forcing WWE to take a huge risk, and there’s no guarantee that the risk will pay off. Since Universal Champion Brock Lesnar isn’t scheduled to appear in Minneapolis (somewhat odd, given that he’s lived in Minnesota off and on for many years), WWE is...

WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 Review and Recriminations

Let’s face it. WWE has had a rough year when it comes to pay-per-views. Most of the shows haven’t lived up to their hype, and at times the booking has been so illogical that the company still hasn’t recovered. It was more of the same at Hell in a Cell last Sunday. While there weren’t any decisions that were bad enough to further damage SmackDown going forward, WWE did little to inspire...

Looking Up at The Lights: WCW Bash at The Beach 1995

WCW could have made money on Bash at The Beach 1995. Instead they held it on a beach and didn’t charge an admission fee. There is a plethora of arenas in California and with the two big matches being Hogan vs Vader and Flair vs Savage, they could have drawn a good number at the gate. Nothing outstanding but maybe $175k and you could still do the beach theme. WCW and Baywatch teamed...
