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 March Madness 2011 Tournament

Taking a brief hiatus from the Coliseum Home Video collection, we’re going to recap a special WWE program. The WWE March Madness 2012 Tournament that aired on WWE On Demand. This is basically the WWE’s attempt to do the NCAA March Madness tournament. I have no idea of the matches, so it’s all going to be a surprise, but I have a bad feeling the final match will be Undertaker versus Shawn Michaels, I hope I’m wrong. Hopefully we get some good solid matches and no garbage. Let’s get underway.

TNA Impact – March 22, 2010


After a very impressive PPV last night, TNA rolls on as we head to the next PPV Lockdown. Last night on Destination X we saw the impressive win of Kaz in the four way ladder match to become number one contender to the X title. A title still held by Doug Williams who won after bloodying Shannon Moore and smearing makeup on his face. Tara was able to fend off “Zombie Hot” Daffney in a great women’s match, after which Daffney stole Poison. Also the tag team champions Hernandez & Matt Morgan were able to defeat Beer Money but after the match Morgan gave his partner the Carbon Footprint and walked out with both titles. Where does this leave the tag team titles? Finally Abyss was able to send AJ Styles straight to Hell through the ring winning the match but not winning the title, which was kind of a letdown. The show ended with Abyss and Hulk sending Desmond Wolfe & Ric Flair through the hole where AJ went and standing tall in the ring. Tonight, we begin to build to Lockdown and should get some answers to the tag situation and what happened to Poison.

TNA Impact – March 15, 2010


TNA is coming off a surprisingly good episode last week, headlined by the in ring returns of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. The shocking part is the rating was not as good as it should’ve been, I really expected a 1.25 at least and can’t believe they did as bad as reported. Then again I really don’t think the ratings mean anything anymore, not like they used to in the 90s. People don’t seem to realize that most people will either tape, DVR or download the shows to watch now, which we didn’t have as much of in the 90’s. I watched both shows last week, but it wouldn’t count toward the ratings as I downloaded both and watched 24. I don’t get the channel for either wrestling show, and even if I did I wouldn’t miss 24 for either show. How many people did the same last week? That’s why I really don’t think the ratings are an accurate gauge of how good the show was. As I said before I enjoyed TNA a lot more then the snorefest that was RAW, however I’ll be honest and say I’m looking forward to RAW a lot more this week, only for Stone Cold’s return. The matches, what little there is, and the storylines on RAW are subpar at best and they’re just not entertaining. TNA on the other hand at least has a couple good matches each week, even if some of the storylines are a little stupid. Personally I can give both shows good advice to fix them, for TNA we need less Bischoff, he doesn’t need to be in every segment. As for WWE, end the guest host crap, it’s a waste of time and no one really cares at all. Well, with that said, and this being the go home episode before the PPV, let’s see what TNA can deliver in their first taped Monday show.

TNA Impact – March 8, 2010


Tonight marks what hopefully will become the return of the Monday Night Wars. It’s been too long since WWE had competition on Monday’s and this is a welcome moment. Of course TNA better have something big planned for next week, with Austin returning to RAW. Tonight is the scheduled in ring returns of Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, which is either going to be a train wreck or a great moment, there’s no middle ground on this. TNA is promising a plethora of surprises and big things and I hope they can deliver on this. I really want to see TNA succeed on Monday’s and give WWE a swift kick in the yam bag, they need it. After all look how good WWE and WCW were in the prime of the War, we need those days back, as WWE has been lacking for a long time. TNA’s first Monday outing two months ago was a great show with a huge main event, as AJ Styles beat Kurt Angle in a five star match, which was a great start for the year. Hulk and Flair may not match the rating for quality, but if done right this could be a good match. So with that in mind, let’s see what TNA has to offer on their first Live Monday Impact!

TNA Impact – February 19, 2010


TNA Impact – February 19, 2010

   After a very strong PPV showing Sunday night, that brings us to tonight’s episode of Impact. The Pope, D’Angelo Dinero scored an impressive trio of victories to become the number contender. Meanwhile AJ Styles was able to beat Samoa Joe, when referee Eric Bischoff was distracted by Ric Flair while Joe had the champ pinned. A great PPV from TNA, but was missing the knockouts, hopefully we get some great knockout action tonight.

TNA Against All Odds: Skip one match and you have a great show!

TNA Against All Odds 2010 – February 14, 2010

Finally got my copy of Against All Odds, so let’s hope the show is as good as I expect of it. Tonight we have the tournament to decide the number one contender, AJ v. Samoa Joe for the World title and the Nasty Boys v. Team 3D to decide who’s the most overrated tag team ever. Well, the tournament and the world title match look good, less said about the Nasty/3D the better, hopefully it’s short and painless. Of course the knockouts seem to have been forgotten tonight, which really sucks, plus no X division title match either, but with a tournament concept it kind of limits the matches. Supposedly the next PPV is supposed to be an all X Division show, let’s see if they really go through with it. I’m trying a new program for tonight’s recap. I usually use Word to type it in and then cut and paste to the page, but I’m going to try and use the Windows Live Writer today and see how that goes, so with that said, let’s get to the PPV.
