Extreme Rules 2012 – April 29, 2012

Tonight we have Extreme Rules, aka Rematch-a-mania, as all but one announced match (Cena/Brock) are rematches from Wrestlemania. We have Jericho/Punk, DB/Sheamus, Show/Cody and Orton/Kane announced, all rematches from Wrestlemania. The only odd man out is the Brock versus Cena match, which is basically just Rock/Cena with a tweak. Invader comes in to company, Cena says he’s always here, leads to the match. The only way this match should end is with Brock destroying Cena, completely dismantling him. This should lead to Cena disappearing for quite a while, while Brock destroys everyone placed in front of him. Have Brock tear apart Sheamus at next PPV to win the Smackdown belt, then at Summerslam he beats Punk to unify the titles. They can call it the Ultimate Championship to play on his UFC career. Along the way Brock defeats Orton, Kane, Bryan, leading to a win at Survivor Series where Brock says he’s beaten everyone, and this brings out the Rock. We get Rock/Brock for Royal Rumble, which Brock ultimately win, however John Cena finally returns to win the Rumble and the rematch is set for Wrestlemania. Cena finally defeats Brock at Wrestlemania, and Brock leaves the WWE. Would be the best way to utilize Brock over the next 12 months, and finally unify the two world titles. I’m expecting a pretty good match, and good PPV so let’s hope we get a RAW quality show and not a Smackdown quality show tonight. Continue reading


WWE Smackdown – April 27, 2012

No idea why the last post had that weird first line, but if I delete it for some reason it changes the spacing of the whole page. For some reason Blogilo doesn’t seem to want to do the spacing right either anymore, so I’m typing the blog in ScribeFire. Hopefully I’ll figure out a better way sooner or later, but for now this will have to do.Anyways, it’s time for Smackdown this week, only two days before Extreme Rules, also known as Rematch-a-Mania. Seriously, we have one match that’s not a rematch from Wrestlemania so far and that’s Brock/Cena, which is just a rehash of Rock/Cena. The PPV has been built up good, but so many rematches makes me wonder why anyone paid for Wrestlemania when you can see the same matches four weeks later cheaper? Anyways, let’s get to Smackdown and hopefully we get a good episode after a streak of bad ones.

Monday Night RAW – April 23, 2012

<!– @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } –>

With only six days until Extreme Rules, tonight on RAW we have the contract signing between John Cena and Brock Lesnar for their huge main event. Last week on RAW Cena dropped a match to Lord Tensai, surprisingly, which hopefully means a big push for the man formerly known as A-Train. Also last week we had a great promo video of Lesnar, since he didn’t make the trip over to the UK. One thing we have not seen on RAW since Wrestlemania are the divas, which seems really odd. No Kelly Kelly, no Beth Phoenix, only seen Eve in the backstage briefly. Not that I’m complaining, since no one really wants to see KK in a match. The biggest downfall for tonight’s RAW is that it is a three hour show, with no theme, thus no draft, and everyone just came back from an exhausting UK tour. I have a feeling some of them will be dragging pretty bad, and a three hour is usually unbearable as it is. Hopefully Dolph Ziggler can save us all, let’s head to Detroit, home of Wrestlemania III, for this week’s RAW, which will not be as cool as Wrestlemania III.

WWE Smackdown – April 10, 2012

We have a special edition of Smackdown this week, since the WWE Wrestlers are headed overseas. There is a number of legends scheduled to make appearances tonight, so that should make for a fun show. Hopefully better then the trainwreck that was Raw this week. So without further ado, let’s head to the arena for a live Smackdown.

We open with the same promo from RAW showing all the legends scheduled to be on the show, best of all is Roddy Piper. Wish they had Michael Hayes on here too, and put Gene on commentary. First thing we get on the live show is a recap of AJ being kicked to the curb by DB, and tonight DB is on the Piper’s Pit, that is awesome! Piper’s Pit should be a permanent thing on Smackdown, as Lillian introduced the great Mene Gene, did he ever have hair??? Continue reading

WWE Smackdown – April 6, 2012

After the shocking return of Brock Lesnar on Monday Night, we move forward to Smackdown as we continue to build towards the next PPV, Extreme Rules. Tonight is the second night of “People Power”, another lame catchphrase the WWE thinks will attract attention. Much like their constant talking about Twitter, which is pathetic. How much money do they get for being a trending topic anyway? Let’s see if we at least get a good match tonight on Smackdown. Continue reading

WWE Superstars – October 27, 2011

There won’t be a ROH recap for the October 22nd episode, as I have yet to find a watchable version. So, instead let’s recap WWE Superstars for this week. First though, thoughts on RAW, it was boring and predictable. They have completely blown the Rock’s return, it was going to be a big for Wrestlemania, but now it’s just a tag match on Survivor Series. Not even a five on five, just a regular tag, how pathetic is that? So we’re supposed to buy Miz and R-Truth, two guys who could not defeat Air Boom two months ago, as a threat to Super Cena and Rock? Seriously, it’s obvious that Cena and Rock will win, and the show will end with them face to face. As for the rest of RAW, HHH and Nash’s segment was long and boring, and how much TV time does John Laurinaitis need? He’s getting into Dixie Carter or Eric Bischoff territory now, but unlike like Eric, JL has no charisma or promo ability. Although I have to say I did enjoy this NXT, other than the boring main event, which we’ve seen how many times now? Any show that gives Tyson Kidd, Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins and the Usos TV time, I approve of. I may have to start recapping NXT to make up for not wasting time on RAW/Smackdown, although this week’s RAW with the Muppets could be fun. I just hope we see Kelly Kelly get beaten down by Miss Piggy this week, that would be some classic comedy, and let Statler and Waldorf do commentary. It would be like Mystery Science Theater 3000, still the coolest show of all time by the way. Anyways, enough rambling, let’s get to Superstars. Continue reading

WWE Superstars – September 29, 2011

It didn’t take long for the WWE show to get too boring to bother recapping. After only one week, I’ve had enough of the WWE/TNA shows, and there’s really not enough worth remembering. So, for the foreseeable future I’m only going to recap PPVs for TNA, since I don’t watch Explosion. I’ll also do ROH and some other shows. With a PPV only two weeks ago and another one tonight, there really is no build and little interest in it. I remember when the Hell in a Cell matches meant something, now, much like ladder matches, it’s just another gimmick match thrown on PPV for a cheap attempt at a buy rate. Anyways, let’s get to the only bearable WWE show at this point, Superstars. Continue reading
