ThunderStruck: Raw Analysis 06/25/12

AJ opens Raw talking to what we assume are Punk, Bryan, and Kane. Turns out she is talking to a mirror. Off to the opening promo. ^I saw Snow White and the Huntsman recently. Strange but interesting comparison to the wicked queen. I like how AJ’s character has been involved in this WWE Title scene without being a full fledged distraction to the actual WRESTLING that we’ve been gifted with between Punk and Bryan. Fun opening! Vickie Guerrero comes out and announces a triple threat elimination match. It’s between Kane,Read More

David Scott Column – Approaching 1000th WWE RAW

Hey guys it’s Dave Scott here for some Monday night debauchery! The last few weeks have been quite slow in the WWE Universe, there is nothing too major to report about recently. We are just on the backlash of a pretty average No Way Out PPV and last weeks Raw wasn’t the most exciting thing in the world. Apart from Heath Slater obviously. On the other hand TNA seem to be upping their game recently and people seem to be turning their heads over to the alternative option of ImpactRead More
Approaching Raw 1,000: Adzop’s Top Raw Moments Good day, everybody. As WWE’s milestone 1,000th episode of Monday Night Raw approaches, I figured I’d get involved in the festivities and compile a list of some of my favourite moments from Raw. There are thousands of hours of WWE TV stashed away in the archives of my brain, and it wasn’t too difficult to come up with these examples. I only chose moments that I remember fondly, and hopefully, some of them may awaken old memories for some of you, as well.Read More

Adzop: On the Positive Side…

WWE has been a big part of my life for 20 years. I have always watched it and I probably always will. There are things that I love about WWE, and there are things that truly frustrate me about it. This has become increasingly apparent in recent times. I’ve been writing columns on the web for a few years now, and I have come to realise that many of my most recent columns have been largely filled with complaints, rather than excitement and happiness. I understand that nobody really wantsRead More

WWE: Will Zack Ryder Be Remembered as a One-Hit Wonder?

Three years ago, Zack Ryder was given his time to shine as a singles star when he was sent packing to the ECW brand via the 2009 WWE Supplemental Draft. Upon his arrival in the Land of Extreme, Ryder debuted a brand-new look, sporting spiked hair and calling himself the Long Island Iced Z. Over the course of the next two years, Ryder would get himself noticed via social networking, building a following that he called his “Zack Pack.” Last February, he debuted his own weekly YouTube show entitled Z! True LongRead More

The Two Sheds Review: WWE No Way Out

It’s time to step into WWE territory once again as we welcome back an old friend of sorts with the return of No Way Out, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The show began with the Smackdown main event as Dolph Ziggler, accompanied by Vickie Guerrero, challenged Sheamus for the World title. I really enjoyed this one. The beginning had a familiar ring to it when Vickie kissed her man before the match began, with Sheamus just missingRead More

ThunderStruck: WWE No Way Out 2012 Reaction

Brodus Clay beat Otunga by countout. I didn’t watch the match. I wasn’t expecting a lot from it. I like Brodus’ character overall, but I want to see the guy really wrestle. Sheamus defeated Dolph Ziggler. I said this match would be awesome, and it was. It was the perfect way to open the show. The chemistry between these two was great, and the match had a solid flow throughout. Sheamus retains to keep his run going and I like the booking behind it.
