It’s here! The Grandaddy of them all, not that Vince likes us saying that! I’m very, very happy to be here for your pre-show, at least, because I’ve been in hospital for the last three days! I’m still in the hospital, doped up and full of meds, but I’m so glad to be here and sharing this with you all, I really am.
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.

Ever since last WrestleMania, the story has been that Roman Reigns has been repeatedly screwed out of getting the WWE World Heavyweight Title. As Michael Cole puts it, he’s always the bridesmaid, never the bride. He keeps getting so, so close, yet fails to win the big one – or can’t keep it once he… Continue reading Kenji Explains It All: 26th March ’16
A shorter recap today, brought to you by your English recapper’s inability to remember that daylight saving’s time has happened in the US but not in the UK yet, and thus scheduling her pre-Raw nap incorrectly! Whoops! Have some rough notes before I actually make it out of bed and into the action! Art, as… Continue reading Rehash: Raw 21st March ’16

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
Firstly, who’s saying that the main event needs saving? Well, Vince and co are working with a much smaller roster than they were originally planning for – no Rollins, no Cena, no Orton – and the cracks have been showing ever since Seth Rollins vacated the World Heavyweight Title in November. We had the tournament… Continue reading Mark My Words: How WWE can save the WrestleMania main event
I’m not sure that there’s anything new to say here. I’m not sure that there’s anything new to say, because it’s been a year – more than a year – and nothing has changed. Even my ability to enjoy being bitter about things on the internet is being tested. I guess we can start with:… Continue reading Kenji Explains It All: Fastlane 2016
