WWE Smackdown Is In Position To Unseat RAW

I love WrestleMania season. It marks a 3 month period where stuff has to happen; a security I like to have upon embarking 5 hours of consumption per week. Gone are the days of passive storylines and redundant feuds. Now, we find ourselves in a territory where that big heel turn is in play, or…


WWE NXT Preview (2/1/17): Five Things To Watch For

It's Wednesday, that means it's time for our WWE NXT preview. NXT TakeOver: San Antonio has come and gone, and the landscape of NXT has changed. Sanity is stronger than ever, Authors of Pain are the new tag champs, and Bobby Roode is the new NXT Champion. Asuka is still the Women's Champion, because Asuka…


WWE SmackDown Live Preview (1/31/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

In the SmackDown Live review I wrote a week ago, I made a lot of statements that wound up being untrue. I felt assured that AJ Styles would beat John Cena in the WWE Title match at Sunday's Royal Rumble. That didn't happen. I was confident that no one from the SmackDown brand would win…



WWE RAW Preview (1/30/17): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday, and you know what that means. It's time for our WWE RAW preview. The Royal Rumble has come and gone, and the landscape of the flagship brand was shaken up just a bit. The Rumble match itself didn't really change anything for RAW, but there were some title changes that will effect Monday…




WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Preview: Who Should Win, Who Will Win

The Royal Rumble is almost upon us, so as always our entire staff is putting their collective heads together to give our thoughts and predictions on who will prevail on tonight's show. We are in for a long one this evening, with the preshow scheduled for two hours and the main show going for 4+…

NXT TakeOver San Antonio Preview: Five Things To Watch For

2017 is going to be a huge year for NXT. They kicked the doors down in 2016, but this year they'll have a TakeOver the night before each of the Big Four pay per views starting with this weekend's Royal Rumble. That's important for a few reasons, but none bigger than getting as many eyes…


Five Wrestlers To Root For At The WWE Royal Rumble

For all of the predictable spots, kick and punch wrestling, and disputable winners, the Royal Rumble manages to excite every year. It has to be the rumors, right? The Rumble build-up might as well be Hanukkah for internet fans. Speculating who will be making a surprise entrance is criminally fun, especially if you consider how much…



Five Predictions For WWE NXT In 2017

NXT will be announcing the recipients of the 2016 Year End Awards at TakeOver San Antonio Saturday night, so I decided to look into the future and make some predictions of my own. I'll be going out on a limb for some of these predictions, and they're based solely on my gut instincts. 2017 should…



WWE NXT Preview (1/25/17): Five Things To Watch For

TakeOver week is finally upon us! Before we get to the live special this Saturday, we have one more episode of NXT from Full Sail to get through. Last week's show featured the contract signing between Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura plus the announcement of two other male singles matches for TakeOver (Almas vs. Strong…


WWE SmackDown LIVE Preview (1/24/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

It's Tuesday, so you know what that means. It's time for our SmackDown Live preview. It's the blue brand's go-home show for Sunday's Royal Rumble, so that means that there are some loose ends to tie up and some title matches to set up (probably). After seeing how things turned out and ended up on…


WWE RAW Preview (1/23/2017): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday, and that means that it's time for our weekly WWE RAW preview. Tonight is the go-home show for the Royal Rumble, and Goldberg will be on hand for the final hype. I could really care less. Elsewhere on the show, we should expect to see more of the Reigns/Rollins/KO/Jericho drama, and Charlotte and…


Why Good vs. Evil Has WWE SmackDown Up, RAW Down

In real life (and thoughtful TV shows and movies) morality is ambiguous. Real people and good characters slide up and down the ethical spectrum.  But in folklore, mythology, and religion morality is binary: it’s Good vs. Evil. The simplicity is necessary because the meat lies within their message. Fables and fairy tales need to establish…


Kurt Angle’s Top Five Greatest Moments From His WWE Run

Kurt Angle's WWE status has been a bit up in the air of late, but now, we can definitively say the man is "coming home." Angle had about six years of push from 2000-2006, during which he was the second WWF/E Grand Slam Winner behind Shawn Michaels, made "You Suck" a term of endearment, and…


WWE In The UK: We’re Beginning To See What This Actually Means

It started out innocently enough. A tournament was announced. Chances were given. It all seemed so lovely and new and fresh. And, then we remembered it was WWE. If anyone actually thought it would benefit all involved, they obviously haven't been paying attention to how WWE has done business over the past 30+ years. There were…



WWE NXT Preview (1/18/17): Five Things To Watch For

NXT returned to form last week after consecutive episodes featuring footage from international live events, and hopefully they can keep that momentum going with the final two episodes before TakeOver: San Antonio. Shinsuke Nakamura vs Samoa Joe and #DIY vs The Revival, two feuds that have headlined NXT shows for the better half of six months, are finally over. It's now…


WWE SmackDown LIVE Preview (1/17/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

The WrestleMania 33 card has reportedly been shaken up. We'll probably have to wait until the Royal Rumble to find out just what those shake ups are or what the road to Mania will even look like. But, there's still two more SmackDown LIVE's to go before San Antonio. Tonight, we'll see the first women's…


WWE RAW Preview (1/16/2017): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday, so that means it's time for our WWE RAW preview. Coming off the absolutely incredible UK Championship tournament this weekend, I am sure RAW will continue to under-deliver and disappoint. I'm sorry, but I just honestly don't like the show anymore. It's stale, old, and nowhere near entertaining. Perhaps this is the week…
