Kairi Hojo & A Requiem For An Elbow Drop

By now, everyone knows that top joshi star Kairi Hojo is WWE-bound sometime in the near future. She will have her final match with STARDOM, and she will probably report to the Performance Center just in time to be featured in the upcoming WWE Women's Tournament. But, once she gets there, she probably won't be…


WWE NXT TakeOver Chicago Preview (5/20/17): Five Reasons To Watch

NXT is headed up north to Chicago and will hold it's second TakeOver special in as many months. While this was shorter than the usual build for a live special, NXT has still put together a beautiful looking card. For the first time ever, four titles will be defended on a TakeOver. Tyler Bate defends his…


WWE NXT Preview (5/17/17): Five Reasons To Watch

Just like that, TakeOver Chicago is only four days away. NXT has been hustling through their episodes to get a card ready for TakeOver only seven weeks removed from the WrestleMania weekend live special. For the first time ever, there will be four championship matches at a TakeOver special, but the card isn't complete yet.…


WWE SmackDown Live Preview (5/16/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

Less than a week away from WWE Backlash, it's a "go-home" edition of SmackDown Live. With only five matches currently booked for Sunday's pay per view, I'd expect a few more to be made between then and now. This is also the last chance to get us excited about Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal, Kevin…


WWE RAW Preview (5/15/17): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday, and you know what that means. Yep, it's time for our WWE RAW preview. The flagship show's crew is done with the two-week European Tour, back on US soil, and will be coming to us live from Newark, NJ, tonight. Needless to say, I am not expecting much after the last several weeks'…


A Note To Wrestlers: Tact On Wrestling Social Media Ain’t A Bad Thing

One of my favorite promotions these days is PROGRESS Wrestling out of the UK. Co-owner, ring announcer, and all-around master of ceremonies Jim Smallman starts every show with one simple rule: Don't Be A Dick! This applies to some goings on with wrestlers (or one in particular) on social media tonight. This isn't going to…



NJPW For Newbies: NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors XXIV (B Block)

NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors XXIV is almost upon us, so I thought this would be a good time to give existing fans a refresher course in the tournament itself and to give new fans some insight into the two week event and introduce everyone to the competitors in each block. Originally created in…


NJPW For Newbies: NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors XXIV (A Block)

NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors XXIV is almost upon us, so I thought this would be a good time to give existing fans a refresher course in the tournament itself and to give new fans some insight into the two week event and introduce everyone to the competitors in each block. Originally created in…


WWE NXT Preview (5/10/17): Five Reasons To Watch

Tonight's NXT is highlighted by a number one contender's match between Hideo Itami and Roderick Strong. The winner will go on to face Bobby Roode for the NXT title at TakeOver Chicago. Aleister Black will also be in action tonight, and I'll try not to cry a river's worth of tears for Ember Moon missing…


SmackDown Live Preview (5/9/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

It's Tuesday; you know what that means. Yep, it's time for our WWE SmackDown Live preview. Less than two weeks away from WWE Backlash, we're on the other side of the pond this week for SmackDown Live. The European Tour continues Tuesday (in London) and being that RAW was a rather lethargic effort, the door…


WWE RAW Preview (5/8/17): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday; you know what that means. Yep, it's time for our WWE RAW preview. Tonight's show won't be coming to us live due to the rosters being in the middle of an overseas tour, so tonight's episode will be taped from London's O2 Arena. Last week, we saw Braun Stroman leave Roman Reigns bloody…



WWE NXT Preview (5/3/17): Five Reasons To Watch

We're onto a fresh set of tapings as NXT is only three shows away from TakeOver Chicago.

Hideo Itami Returns Hideo…


WWE SmackDown Live Preview (5/2/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

It's Tuesday; you know what that means. Yeppers. Time for our WWE SmackDown Live preview. The landscape of the blue brand has changed a bit after Sunday's Payback, and there's a new champion in town. Chris Jericho won the US Title from Kevin Owens, and now Y2J is a spot on the roster. But, don't…


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

It's Monday, and that means it's time for our weekly WWE RAW preview. Last night, we got a pretty damn decent PPV from WWE. With the exception of one match, Payback was actually good. The House Of Horrors match was ridiculous, but other than that, the RAW roster delivered solid matches, good storyline progression, and…




WWE NXT Preview (4/26/17): Five Reasons To Watch

Now that the NXT goodbye tour is over, it's time to get back to the men and women who stayed behind and will be apart of TakeOver Chicago on May 20th. Tonight's show should be jam packed with action, as Tyler Bate defends his UK Title against Jack Gallagher, Drew McIntyre takes on Andrade Almas,…


WWE SmackDown Live Preview (4/25/17): 5 Reasons To Watch

Imagine if, one week ago, I had told you that Jinder Mahal would be the #1 contender for the WWE Title. Mahal winning a six-pack challenge has set the IWC on fire, and whether or not you liked the result (I'm nowhere near as negative as some), him as the #1 contender is now a…


WWE RAW Preview (4/24/17): 5 Things To Watch For

It's Monday. You know what that means. Yep, time for our weekly WWE RAW preview. Last week, WWE programming left us scratching our heads in confusion and shaking our fists in anger, so it will be interesting to see what we get this week. In case you missed last week's show, Braun Strowman continued to…



WWE NXT Preview (4/19/17): Five Reasons To Watch

Last week's NXT was full of change. Drew McIntyre & Aleister Black were victorious in their Full Sail debuts, while Shinsuke Nakamura bid farewell to the Full Sail faithful to close out the show. While Bobby Roode is still the NXT Champion, it's clear that the new crop of talent is ready and capable of making an…


SmackDown Live Preview (4/18/17): Five Reasons To Watch

It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for our SmackDown Live preview. The respective rosters have been "shaken up", but with the two top titles on the SmackDown brand being and defended on the next RAW pay per view, Payback, where does that leave the rest of the Tuesday crew? Let's take a look at five…
