The Unwatchable WWE Raw And A Broken Shield

I’m watching the segment over as I write this, and I still cannot stand it. Last night, the Shield was blown up, as Seth Rollins “sold out” to Triple H and turned on his running buddies, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. I suppose it was the logical end for them, since they really had no more to accomplish after a sweep of Evolution in their Payback rematch, but as a fan, it was immensely hard to handle. The Shield was the one enjoyable, consistent match week in and week out.Read More

WWE Raw Results – April 28, 2014

WWE Raw Results – April 28th, 2014 Raw opens in St Louis with a video package of The Wyatts vs John Cena from last week on Raw. We cut to the ring and a steel cage is set up around the ring. Out comes John Cena. John Cena asks why to start off his promo. The fans are heavily against Cena. He then says why did the fans vote him to face the entire Wyatt family. He says that they were given a choice to give him a fair chanceRead More

Here we go… TNA Lockdown Ticket Sales? Sure, how about a little TNA to start us off? Word on the street is that Lockdown has sold around 1,000 tickets so far for the pay-per-view event next Sunday night. Not too surprising, if true. Unless the company has some huge play coming in the next few days, be on the look out for more “empty arena pictures” next Sunday night to surface online. You would think with MVP being in a big spot, the show would do well in Miami…but nope.Read More

No stalling today. Just a few topics and some reader feedback. Raw Rating Let me be clear: On Monday night, WWE Raw was the number one show on cable. Most watched and all that fun stuff. Top of the top! Cause for celebration, right? Not so fast. Obviously, this is excellent news for the company trying to secure a huge television deal. However, the rating/viewership could have been soooooooooooooo much higher. You know how WWE spent a month hyping up Batista’s big return earlier this year? WHERE WAS THAT? Seriously.Read More

Note: WWE Elimination Chamber will NOT be available on the WWE Network this Monday. It will be available 30 days later. Thus, if you are trying to save $50 and wait a day to watch the pay-per-view, tough luck! That short cut will not work. Sorry. I believe it is the only pay-per-view not set to be on the WWE Network starting Monday. The rest from the past (WWE, WCW, ECW) will be. Chamber? Have to wait for next month until it is added. That is to protect Sunday’s buyRead More

Here is a quick rundown. I will reply to a few emails, a few comments, a few tweets, and discuss a few other topics for today. That is the word of the day: FEW! Everybody ready? Without any more stalling, I will let the comments kick us off… From Jimi: hey justin. I just read on the Internet page that hogan is coming to wwe? Is that true? What can he do? He’s broken down? I like hulk but the past injuries he surely isn’t wrestling he never did atRead More
CM Punk
How about we dive right into a few topics? Live Events… One of my favorite things to do online throughout the “IWC” is read fan reports from live events, television tapings, or even pay-per-view events. It gives everybody a personal look inside the mind of a wrestling fan, as well as any story or anecdote. Fun. For those who have been keeping track, the chants for CM Punk are slowly dying down as time goes by. Now, this could be for one of two reasons. Honestly, I credit BOTH reasons.Read More

From Across The Pond: WWE & TNA Q&A

It’s that time again. Yup, thanks to my self-imposed hiatus from all things WWE and TNA, I wanted to write a column, but had no idea what to write about. That’s where you fine people came in! You supplied the questions and I’m set to fire through them with my answer gun. I got plenty of questions from Facebook and Twitter, as well as by e-mail. Some of them are serious, some of them are more sarcastic. You should be able to tell them apart, but be warned! This article’sRead More

FATP: The Usos – Future Tag-Team Champions?

It’s been a while huh? I needed a rest after writing 2 monstrous columns over the holiday season. Thanks to everyone who gave me constructive feedback, and in particular to those who bothered to give me more feedback than “the article was too long”. Always great to hear that when you’ve busted your ass to write an in-depth column. Some people… In case you’ve forgotten, I’m in the midst of my self-imposed hiatus from the WWE. Just because I’m not watching doesn’t mean that I don’t know what’s going on.Read More

FATP Awards 2013

“It’s Christmastime, there’s no need to be afraid… At Christmastime… We let in light, and banish shade…” It might be the festive Christmas spirit, or just the spirits I’ve had to drink over the last week or so, but that intro from a well-known Christmas song is a great metaphor for this edition of FATP, especially the “…let in light, and banish shade…” bit. Normally, I’m sarcastic and angry, but what the hell… it’s Christmas, so I’ve lightened up a bit! Welcome one, welcome all to just the 2nd everRead More

He then says deep down he knows the reason but he wishes he was wrong. He says he knows he made “the cardinal sin” by criticizing Triple H last week, and how coincidentally on the same night he is attacked by The Shield. He then says he hopes hes wrong becauseRead More

FATP: Out With The Old, In With The New

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve not watched any current wrestling (from either WWE or TNA) for the last 3 weeks because I’m incredibly frustrated with the product at the moment. When I’ve been in that kind of mood before, a lot of you have told me to stop watching or shut up. You’ll be glad to know that I’ve taken your advice and I’ve stopped watching! However, it makes me feel better when I listen to guys like Dave Meltzer, Jason Powell and Wade KellerRead More
