Previewing WWE Payback

WWE returns to pay-per-view tomorrow night with their June event, Payback. This event seems to be trying to build itself around it’s title sake by having most of the matches taking place focus on return matches from the Extreme Rules event, the ongoing rivalry with The Shield, and what could perhaps be the payoff to...

WWE Smackdown Rundown – June 15th, 2013

The word “mediocre” comes to mind when discussing this week’s Smackdown. WWE creative seemed to check out for the night, save for one very questionable booking decision. Let’s break it down:

World Heavyweight Championship

WWE No Longer Needs the World Heavyweight Championship

Normally, a World Champion being out of action for five weeks would seem like a big deal. In his absence, a wrestling company would still find ways to highlight him. It would show vignettes on his return, interview him from his home, or even put him in the ring and let him cut a few...

WWE Creative Changes Mean New Possible Matchups

Probably the most intriguing storyline WWE has headed into Monday Night Raw (and potentially continuing into Payback and beyond) is Randy Orton’s status with the fans. His actions on Friday Night Smackdown this week left another fan favorite, Daniel Bryan, laid out in the middle of the ring as a victim of the RKO. But...

Kofi Kingston

Why Kofi Kingston is the Face of the WWE Problem

In late 2009, Kofi Kingston was finally ready for his breakout moment. His career arc up to that point included all the typical WWE milestones: after signing with the WWE in 2006 he did a stint in developmental before eventually working his way onto the main roster. By late 2008, he had collected a few...

Kurt Angle is Great But Could Have Been Greater

On Sunday night at the TNA Slammiversary pay-per-view, Kurt Angle was introduced as the second inductee to the TNA Hall of Fame.  There’s no doubt that Angle deserves the honor and is,  quite honestly, one of the all-time greatest in-ring performers in the history of professional wrestling. But I couldn’t help thinking about something when...

New WWE Head Writer Already Out

It was just six weeks ago when the WWE hired Adam Rudman as their new head writer, replacing Eric Pankowski who left just before WrestleMania. Now, the company is once again looking for a new head writer. SEScoops.com is reporting that Rudman was recently released from his position.  Multiple reports say that Rudman was let...

WWE Extreme Rules 2013 Rundown

Although the build was terrible heading into ‘Extreme Rules,’ WWE put together an entertaining three-hours last night. While no match was an instant classic, the intensity throughout the last hour of the Pay Per View plus a few stand-out performances created a solid pro wrestling event. The Good: Chris Jericho def. Fandango: This rivalry was...

WWE Raw Rundown – May 13, 2013

Solid, if unspectacular, edition of ‘Raw’ last night.  There was too much time between ‘Wrestlemania’ and what is essentially ‘Wrestlemania: The Rematches,’ which made for some dull weeks of television.  The creative team has been stuck in neutral for a month or so, and it was good to see things pick back up a little...
