Rehash: Raw 17th April ’17 – Columbus, Ohio

Well, here we are, my first Raw since WrestleMania, because I’ve been gallivanting around being terribly ill, and then cuddling pretty UK wrestlers at Fight Club: Pro on Friday! So we’re off to a good start, with a recap of Braun Strowman murdering Roman Reigns last week, overturning an ambulance and everything to make sure the Big Dog was well and truly buried. But it’s okay, because, due to beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania, Roman has his gimmick now, and therefore can’t die. It’s perfect.

PPV Predictions: Royal Rumble 2017

Ah, the annual ‘throw everyone into the ring and see what happens’ PPV. I’m not feeling too respectful at this point, what with temporary paralysis and it being nearly 5am, so you can enjoy a fairly irreverent attempt at some predictions, if you’d like. Bit more sweary than usual, too, but sod it, it’s early. Without any more ado: the Rumble.

Rehash: SmackDown Live 17th January ’17 – Memphis, Tennessee

Well, this is a turn up for the books! I haven’t done a SmackDown for a looong time, and now I get to do one with a concussion. Before the show starts, we get a reminder that we’re making history with the first ever SmackDown women’s cage match! As we arrive in Memphis, we’re greeted by commentary – oh, THAT’S where Tom Phillips went – and then Shane O’Mac. He tries to get us hyped for the Royal Rumble, and it’s interesting to note that boos are loudest for Braun Strowman, Brock Lesnar, Miz and Baron Corbin, but loudest for Dean.

The Salt Mine: WhatCulture’s Brick Lobster

If you’ve been paying any attention to wrestling news at all in the last month, you’ll know that Roman Reigns has been suspended.  Yes, not the good guy, not the bad guy, but the suspended guy.  Hilarious. Can’t you hear me laughing?  If you’ve been paying any attention to wrestling culture in the last decade, you’ll know that oh boy do the fan boys just LOVE Brock Lesnar.
