Jim Ross Blogs His WWE SummerSlam Pay-Per-View Predictions

Jim Ross has posted a new blog featuring his SummerSlam pay-per-view predictions. Here are some highlights. Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H: Really anxious for HHH-Lesnar. Very personal issue. Won’t be a pretty match..nothing fancy. I see physicality, aggression & a battle of wills. HHH might be the best game planner ever. He’ll need it. Don’t think Brock will make same mistakes he did vs Cena. Show ender? TBD. CM Punk vs. John Cena vs. The Big Show: Triple Threat bouts unpredictable and not a favorite of most wrestlers. I seeRead More

The Cahoon Run Down – Random WWE Thoughts (Again!)

Well everybody. I tried. I tried to come up with an actual article topic for this week. I always feel like I’m copping out a bit when I do these “Random Thoughts” columns (Though they are fun to write). I try to keep things current, but with the product in such a slump right now, I just can’t write a fleshed out article about any of the stuff currently going on in WWE. So enjoy, once again, Random Thoughts. The Miz as IC Champ (Losing Constantly): So in the lastRead More

The Cahoon Run Down: Random WWE Thoughts

Hey everybody, Geddy Cahoon here with another edition of The Cahoon Run Down. I’m gonna be honest here: I racked my brain Tuesday and yesterday trying to come up with a decent article subject. I couldn’t. WWE is in a slump. There’s just no other way to word it. So today, I figured I’d use my go to “I can’t think of anything decent to write this week” article subject: Random Thoughts. Here I’ll just throw down a brief little summary/review of essentially whatever topics from the WWE world popRead More

FATP: My state of the WWE address

Now that the “historic” 1,000th episode of Raw is behind us, I wanted to give my state of the WWE address. It’d be too easy to sit here and drink up the Kool-Aid that WWE gives us every week and say “it’s the best thing ever”, but the fact is that WWE is in need of a shake-up, even although they’re doing a lot of things right just now. The major champions (Punk & Sheamus) are being booked strongly and they’re in the middle of long title reigns, but forRead More
