WrestleMania Hangover

WrestleMania 31 is owned and promoted by WWE.

WrestleMania 31 is owned and promoted by WWE.

So it’s Monday, the day after WrestleMania 31 (or Play Button) and it’s been quite a few days worth of “sports entertainment.” On top of the classic amount of 3 Hour Raws, Smackdowns and NXTs the WWE Network added even more content with the addition of two, two hour update shows on Thursday and Friday, the Hall of Fame with it’s own hour long red carpet and of course the four hour event with a two hour pre-show. Together that’s a staggering 19 hours of content in a week.

So much like the college student who spends the whole spring break at the bottom of a glass, let’s try and review some of the stuff that went down for WrestleMania.  Continue reading

The real reason to pay $9.99...or $11.99 in Canada.

The real reason to pay $9.99…or $11.99 in Canada.

Last week, we talked about the last NXT Special, Fatal 4 Way, and it’s so-so card filled with a few moments of gold and jobber matches. This week it’s time for a all new live special from Full Sail University in Florida.

So let’s take a look at NXT Takeover: R Evolution. Continue reading

WWE NXT Takeover: Fatal 4 Way

4 great wrestlers in a Main Event? Fact.

4 great wrestlers in a Main Event? Fact.

So let’s get this straight, WWE’s NXT is amazing.

While it’s sometimes bogged down by some nonsense, it’s managing to combine the work rate of a Ring of Honor with the story-telling of a WWE. The main reason for that is the solid and talented roster of wrestlers in their Florida minor league system. I’d argue that if if the majority of the WWE Roster quit tomorrow, bringing up the NXT guys would make for a more interesting show every week.

So before the newest live special next week featuring Zayn and Neville one on one, let’s look at the last special from September of this year. It’s NXT Takeover: Fatal 4 Way.

Watch Great Wrestling #1

It’s no secret that the big wrestling shows don’t always put on great matches. In fact with the WWE product being in a state of limbo until the 1000th episode of RAW, we might not see that many great matches, due to all the filler (cause seeing AJ in a Kane mask run around the ring is great television). So I thought a I’d start a new feature called Watch Great Wrestling. Continue reading
