WrestleMania 30 is behind us, so is the always interesting Monday Night RAW after WrestleMania. What can we look forward to after what can only be described as a rollercoaster of a week in the world of WWE and professional wrestling in general?
It was the second day of March, on a cold Sunday night. I went to Bloomington, Illinois for my fourth WWE event. I’ve seen quite a few wrestlers since going to Raw in St. Louis three years ago heading into WrestleMania 27. I’ve been to three house shows in Bloomington, Springfield, and now back to Bloomington again. (more…)
What a week this has been. Elimination Chamber, the WWE Network, Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker returned, and we are over a month away from WrestleMania! Even though several things could go under some of the categories, I’m going to try and stick to one. (more…)
“Mr. McMahon” Was a great Heel.
I remember the good old days, a million years ago in the 80′s, when I was a kid watching the WWF on Saturday mornings. The characters were pretty straight forward back then, I knew who to boo and I knew who to cheer based on their actions in the ring, or how they cut their promos. These days? Not so much.
That’s right folks! It’s an R-Truth article, if you don’t like it you should probably leave…..wait don’t go! It’s also a Wyatt Family article, and who doesn’t love The Wyatts! Did I just give away the entire article? Sort of, I assume you all know that there’s a lot more to a storyline than just who’s involved. But yes, this is about The Wyatt Family and R-Truth. Now this isn’t a program that pits The Wyatt Family against R-Truth. Every Little Jimmy out there knows that R-Truth is way more entertaining as a heel character that’s gone completely bonkers. Therefore, this angle puts R-Truth WITH The Wyatt Family. Now, for those of you that think “What’s Up!?!” whenever somebody says R-Truth, I highly stress that you go back and watch some of his heel promos, his mic-skills are right up there with Bray Wyatt’s. Now let’s resume, with every program you have to think of how to lay the ground work and set up the actual run. And with every program there’s plenty of ways to do it, but only one RIGHT way. (more…)
Two weeks ago, I attended my second house show. This one took place in Springfield, Illinois. I’ve been to a RAW in St. Louis (2011), and I went to my first live event this past June in Bloomington, Illinois. I’m going to start off by saying that I actually prefer the house shows over TV tapings. Why? Because there is more fan interaction, and timing is not a big issue. (more…)
The show starts with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassidy cutting a promo. As a team, they are undefeated. One thing they are not… is S-A-W-F-T. Saaaawwft! What Enzo sees is a dance floor. Colin starts to sing as Tons of Funk dances their way to the ring. Clay and Sweet T dance in the ring a little bit. Amore and Cassidy start to leave, but Mason Ryan’s music hits. Tons of Funk destroy Enzo and Colin. Ryan hits his finisher on Amore. Mason starts to leave the ring, but they get him to stay and dance. I found it hilarious. (more…)
This week’s edition of NXT starts with a triple threat match! (more…)
We all considered the possibility. Some thought it would happen, some didn’t. Some thought it would kill the character, some thought it wouldn’t matter. On July 8, it happened.
One week later, did the chants mean the end of the world for the Eater of Worlds? (more…)
This week’s show starts with some diva’s action! Summer Rae is on her way out. Emma comes out with bubbles all over the arena. (more…)
