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

Foley posted the following on his official Twitter account: I think @WWEBrayWyatt may be a #BetterMankindThanMankind. Awesome stuff from a modern master of the microphone. #Raw — Mick Foley (@realmickfoley) March 18, 2014Read More
The above “Occupy RAW” segment from Monday’s WWE RAW, will be looked back at years from now as the pivotal point to the start of the Daniel Bryan Era in the WWE. Whether WWE planned this storyline, or if they were forced to make “creative changes” because of the negative feedback from the fans, the payoff at WrestleMania XXX will be epic. It has been a long road for Daniel Bryan, full of twists and turns, but it seems that the WWE has finally gotten this right. Lets take aRead More
No stalling. How about we tackle a few topics today? TNA Impact Wrestling Yes, I will be watching this Thursday (tonight). No, I will not be live tweeting. Still have not hit 500 Twitter followers! be on the look out for thoughts on Impact later this week. WWE Stock Soars! Oh look, the WWE stock price went up another 13% on Tuesday. More on Wednesday! Great job ‘taking over’ and trying to hijack Raw. Sure did make a difference folks. Boy, that sold out arena looked great in Chicago. WonderfulRead 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
Bunch of stuff to discuss before Sunday. My Elimination Chamber predictions should be posted over the weekend. WWE Battleground 2013 Just one quick note: Battleground did a near record low pay-per-view buy rate last October. Not to brag, but I called it! That event never stood a chance, and it was easy to predict a total failure was coming in terms of PPV buys. WWE made up for it three weeks later with Heck on a Deck, so maybe their plan paid off? About 342,000 PPV buys through entire theRead 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
Daniel Bryan
I am back. Instead of wasting time with an introduction, how about we just dive into things? WWE Smackdown The Blue Brand just ended their Friday night episode. Wow! Folks, this show has drawn over three million viewers for three straight weeks. What we saw this week is the reason why. The Shield had a ten minute opening six person tag. Jack Swagger won a very entertaining eight minute fatal four way match to become the #1 contender for the IC Championship. There was a ten minute eight person tag.Read More
Everybody getting excited for the WWE Network? I know I am. After years and years of doubting this entire project would start up, it is almost here. Right or wrong, the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view has become secondary in importance. The night AFTER is going to be beyond epic. Taking place from Green Bay, Wisconsin (I am from WI) only adds to the excitement. With that little introduction out of the way, how about we tackle a few topics for today? WWE Smackdown Ratings Continue Rising A lot of folks alwaysRead More
Hello! After ALLLLL the CM Punk blabber last week, I think every single wrestling fan deserved a break. Take a breather. Get some fresh air. Smell the roses. Watch the clouds. Just enjoy life away from all the backstage gossip and never ending rumor mills. That being said, I am back. There are a few topics to discuss, as well as the usual comments. How about we kick it off with a Tweet? Gurung Saurav: Your first impression of The Undertaker character? His #1 Moment? His #1 match? Ah, TheRead More
CM Punk
Quick warning: There are a ton of emails to get through. It is going to take a few columns. Remain patient. As always, the ones with foul language will not be included. Do not be shy! Get involved below in the comment section or through email/social media. The links are at the end of the column. Be sure to interact folks! How about we kick it off with a slight comparison to AJ Styles? Franck: “I’ve juste read your take on the whole CM Punk story. How can you soRead More
Well, well, well…I was all set to write my HUGE column on Sting. Everything was paid out and in place. The rumors were roaring about a possible deal, and it was going to be great. Come Wednesday night, my column would be published. Then plans changed in a hurry. All of the stuff about Sting has (predictably) gone nowhere and attention shifted. Out of the blue, Sting was no longer the most talked about man in professional wrestling. Nope. That distinction quickly went to CM Punk. For those still inRead More
Brock Lesnar
