Keep reading to find out… Not ready for the Chamber? ...

WWE Extreme Rules (2015) Predictions

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 12.05.51 PM

WWE likes to claim it goes Extreme “one night a year,” but we all really know that WWE Extreme Rules is one of about half-a-dozen gimmick Pay Per Views the company cycles through on an annual basis.

WrestleMania 31 Hangover

wrestlemania 31 end

Well, internet wrestling fans: it turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too. For what was debatably one of the worst-built, under-hyped, and oddly booked WrestleManias in recent memory, WWE managed to take all of that negativity – every tweet, post, “like”, and jeer – and use it to fuel one of the best Pay-Per-Views in years.

Nevertheless, it was headlined by what looked to be an excellent championship rematch on paper, and the undercard featured every champion in action. Did that make it a winner?

cena_mania1

Watching Raw on Monday, as my wife said “we’ve seen this before, why don’t they do anything different?” several times throughout the broadcast, two things really stuck out to me. First and foremost, Paul Heyman is hands down the best talker in the business today and probably of this generation. He can turn “Brock Lesnar is huge and scary and ...

John Cena Red Shirt

Wrestling fans hate wrestling. No, really. Don’t believe me? Google any combination of “John Cena/Brock Lesnar/Night of Champions” and mark all the negative adjectives wrestling fans use. Or read reactions of the John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar title match from SummerSlam. Yes, some people didn’t like it.
