We open on a video package recapping Payback, particularly the results of the Shane/Stephanie debacle and how the main event ended. I appreciate that there is at least for the time being an answer, but this whole thing has gone on much longer than I would have liked. AJ Styles and Roman Reigns’ match for Extreme Rules is also discussed, and there’s more talk about this being a new “era” of WWE, which… well, I’m skeptical about, given the complete lack of any title changes at the pay-per-view, but of course eras are about more than just titles. I’m going to keep an open mind.
It’s time for our quick Sunday recap of the week! This week we learned some more facts about WrestleMania matches, and some injury stuff, so let’s start on Monday. Having heard about Luke Harper’s injury, PWinsider have let us know that his injury could be more serious than first suggested, meaning that he’ll be out… Continue reading Rasslin Round-Up: 20th-27th March ’16
Post-Roadblock Raw, and it’s time to see how things have been shaken up by a network special where not a single title changed hands. Seems to suggest that we’re going to have a wee bit of a stagnant title scene until WrestleMania; titles need to stay where they are for storylines, so there won’t be… Continue reading Rehash: Raw March 15th ’16
Without further ado, the results of the Roadblock 2016 Network Special – it was a bumpy ride. First they said it would be two and a half hours, then lengthened that to three hours, but in the end it was two and a half, with actually very little time wasted. Quite impressive what they can… Continue reading Results: Roadblock 2016
Well, tonight we watch Dean Ambrose die for our sins. As my wife, who names all wrestlers after foodstuffs says, “Tonight, mashed potato is gonna get creamed.” Art, as always, by our own Sora. We’ve been told this is two and a half hours, and then we were told it would be three hours like a… Continue reading Rehash: Roadblock 2016
Things all looked peaceful on the road to WrestleMania, when all of a sudden – ROADBLOCK. We’re meant to believe this is in the form of Dean Ambrose showing up and daring to challenge Triple H for the heavyweight title, but I think it’s really that the writers have realised they have no set up… Continue reading Predictions: Roadblock 2016
Ah, wrestling. Where we believe an ancient man controls an old, undead wizard, and is making him kill the ancient man’s firstborn son at the biggest event in the wrestling calendar. Where a man who grabs the ancient man’s arm gets suspended for sixty days, but the undead wizard can grab him around the throat and still… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 7th March ’16
Kick Off Match: Darren Young and Damien Sandow vs. The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) vs. The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor) vs. Mark Henry and Jack Swagger So this kick-off match is for two spaces in the Royal Rumble (really, we’ve got enough roster left that people can fight over spaces?),… Continue reading Predictions: Royal Rumble 2016
It’s the late, great, last recap before Christmas!
The pre-show match is Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch, with the rest of Team BAD at ringside. Team Bad have a little Christmas carol for us, and then it’s into a great match, at least ten minutes of Diva match up. Shame it was on the pre-show when Ryback vs. Rusev is going to be… Continue reading PPV Rehash: TLC 2015
