Takeover: Orlando – Preview & Predictions (Mar.31)

Takeover: Orlando has been built differently from many of the previous ones. For the first time in a while, I truly believe they put in more work for the mid carders than they did for the main eventers. That may seem strange, but fans shouldn’t mind. The top guys will always put forth strong matches,… Continue reading Takeover: Orlando – Preview & Predictions (Mar.31)

NXT

On to the NXT One – Go Home Edition (Mar.30)

Within the past few weeks, the card for this Takeover has been well built. However, it looks like the bookers forget they had a show left. Quite honestly, fans could’ve gone without seeing this before Saturday.  Akam vs Johnny Gargano vs Dash Wilder For a go home show, I thought this was an awesome match.… Continue reading On to the NXT One – Go Home Edition (Mar.30)

Smackdown

The Smackdown Scoop – “Weapon of the apocalypse” Edition (Mar.29)

Just like Raw, this episode of Smackdown kept things simple. If you weren’t excited for Mania already, I’d say the WWE did a great job at heating things up with both of their television shows. Opening Segment – AJ Styles/Shane McMahon Contract Signing Thank god they didn’t get Daniel Bryan to use the phrase “ultimate… Continue reading The Smackdown Scoop – “Weapon of the apocalypse” Edition (Mar.29)

Raw

Raw Rollup – “I DON’T LIKE YOUR FACE” Edition (Mar.28)

This wasn’t a bad go home show, and it touched on everything needed for Wrestlemania. The show was kept simple, which only made it more fun to watch. Opening Segment It may not have been the best idea to let Bayley open the show, even if she only spoke for a minute. While I thought Charlotte and… Continue reading Raw Rollup – “I DON’T LIKE YOUR FACE” Edition (Mar.28)

NXT

On to the NXT One – “This is your head!” Edition (Mar.23)

It’s crucial for the mid-lower card guys to also receive a fair amount of time on the shows leading to a PPV. At the end of the day, they’re the ones that’ll comprise the rest of the card after the one or two main event programs. This episode of NXT showcased why fans should care for… Continue reading On to the NXT One – “This is your head!” Edition (Mar.23)

Smackdown

The Smackdown Scoop – “DDP Yoga” Edition (Mar.22)

  While this episode of Smackdown could’ve been more high paced, it still managed to progress most Mania programs. It didn’t need long segments or matches, and that added to the overall simplicity. Opening Segment Seeing AJ come into Bryan’s office with full out Wrestlemania merchandise was hilarious. Apart from being funny, it was extremely… Continue reading The Smackdown Scoop – “DDP Yoga” Edition (Mar.22)

Raw

Raw Rollup – “MARKIN’ OUT, MAN!” (Mar.21)

It makes a huge difference when segments and matches are promoted a week in advance. That automatically gives the fans something to look forward to, while giving the writing team something to work around. This particular episode of Raw was a great example of what felt like a prepared show. Opening Segment Foley’s written speech… Continue reading Raw Rollup – “MARKIN’ OUT, MAN!” (Mar.21)
