We are going back in time today and taking a look at WWF 1980s wrestling from the Philadelphia Spectrum. Hulk Hogan headlines a stacked show featuring Randy Savage, Paul Orndorff, Harley Race, and yes Miss America.
This past week on WWE SmackDown, Royal Rumble standout Bray Wyatt delivered an ominous warning: “After what transpires next, I promise, it will be hard for you to ever smile again.”
The Flyers came in to Saturday’s game against a desperate Toronto Maple Leafs team. Steve Mason shut the door on the Leafs, handing them their ninth straight loss and the Flyers fourth straight win. A Michael Del Zotto goal was all the Flyers needed in the 1-0 victory.
The Spider is back…well sort of. Anderson Silva returned from a career threatening injury to win a unanimous decision over Nick Diaz. While the win was nice, the story was the Silva we saw and didn’t see at UFC 183.
This week's WWE SmackDown is live in Hartford, CT, due to the bad weather in the northeast. The Big Show will face Roman Reigns, and Daniel Bryan will face Kane in a casket match.
Everything in the 2014-15 NFL Season all comes down to this, my readers. The regular season is over. The playoffs are over, and two teams are left to compete for the Lombardi Trophy in the last game of the 2014-15 NFL Season, Super Bowl 49, which will air on NBC, February 1st.
Brock Lesnar has held the WWE World Heavyweight Championship since August 17, 2014. He has defended the title only twice, and has been absent from 3 WWE PPV’s since he became champion.
The Flyers came into Thursday’s game looking to start a streak that would help them climb back into playoff consideration. Strong games from Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn would allow the Flyers to come away with the 5-2 victory.
The WWE Universe is in a tailspin following the finish to the Royal Rumble. The groundwork has been laid and while it may not have been the plan, the best thing for business is to turn Roman Reigns heel at WrestleMania.
With the recent news of Macho Man Randy Savage’s long overdue induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, it’s time for the annual round of speculation and suggestions to begin anew.
It felt like around the time of my last article there weren’t many things to look forward to heading into 2015 but a lot can change in a couple of months. Key WWE Superstars are back from injuries and it feels like multiple wrestlers are primed for a push.
The Roman Reigns revolt caps off a decade of consistently poor WWE creative and ignorance that has produced absolutely zero new superstars and has done more to damage careers than enhance them.
It isn’t Roman Reigns’ fault the WWE universe doesn’t want him in the main event. It’s not his fault the fans wanted to see more of the Triple Threat Match between Seth Rollins, John Cena and Brock Lesnar.
The Flyers entered Tuesday night looking to build off their previous victory against the Penguins, six days ago. The All-Star break gave most Flyers a much needed rest while Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek saw themselves in Ohio to take part in the all-star festivities.
Roman Reigns couldn't have been booked a whole lot better in last year's Rumble. He eliminated 12 men, which stood as the new record. He scowled, punched, speared, and roared with the intensity that Goldberg had used to forge his own name in 1997-98.
UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson is looking for his next fight and in a recent interview, the champion said that he is interested in the Ian McCall vs. John Linker fight at UFC 183.
Roman Reigns got the Batista treatment from rabid WWE fans in Philadelphia after winning the Royal Rumble. How would Reigns react to getting booed out of the building during his defining moment? It didn’t take long to find out.
The winners of the matches never deserve the vitriol from fans. They're just toy soldiers in Vince McMahon's backyard sandlot, getting gunned down when he decides they should be gunned down. Just so happens that one of the soldiers was fragged by a pyrocentric television last month.
We could smell what the WWE was cooking after Sunday night’s Royal Rumble. And the fans were not happy with it.
The 2015 WWE Royal Rumble looked to be one of the most unpredictable Rumbles and events in recent memory. Unfortunately the final result wound up being the most predictable result of all scenarios. The WrestleMania 31 main-event match we have heard about for a year is still in tact as Brock Lesnar will meet Roman Reigns in the Mania headliner.
The Rock will be at the Royal Rumble. This is a major surprise that came out of nowhere as not even the insiders reported any rumors of Dwayne Johnson taking part in the big event. The bigger story here is that The Rock is likely in for WrestleMania 31 making tonight’s event a lot more unpredictable.
You may have a better chance of picking the winning Power Ball numbers than figuring out what the WWE intends to do not only with the Royal Rumble match at the upcoming pay-per-view event, but also with the Triple Threat match for the WWE World Title between John Cena, Seth Rollins and champion Brock Lesnar.
WWE Smackdown opens up with Daniel Bryan making his way down to the ring. This week, his spot in the Royal Rumble is on the line when he faces Kane. He says we are days away from the RR, and we're about to begin the Road to WrestleMania.
Roman Reigns has been groomed by the WWE to be the next John Cena of the company. Reigns is certainly following along that path as the superstar is starting to hear his fair share of boos. The difference between Reigns and Cena is that Roman is just a wee bit more sensitive about them.
The WWE Royal Rumble is my favorite event of the year. There is nothing more exciting and in some years more unpredictable than the Rumble match. The 2015 event should be no different with an unpredictable Rumble and main-event.
