So it’s been awhile since I recorded since we’re remodeling our kitchen and everything is all over the place in my basement, where I do all my recording and it’s not really accessible to me at the present time.  So there have been a number of things going on in the world of Professional Wrestling, sadly what I’m here to write and comment about today isn’t one of the more positive stories of the last couple of weeks.

Just the other day, it was reported by TMZ that Chyna, Joanie Laurer was found dead in her apartment. Shortly thereafter, the twitter universe exploded with comments from wrestlers from all around the globe saying how much of a pioneer she was for womens’ wrestling, about how she broke down so many barriers and was an inspiration to so many.

So let’s get right into it…I wrote in my last blog a few of my issues with the card going into this past Sunday’s WrestleMania 32 and those issues I had weren’t addressed by WWE in any way shape or form. In fact, I believe they were magnified, highlighted and double-underlined. It’s like the creative team just threw up their arms and said “Whatever you want, Vince!” — which I’m pretty sure isn’t far off from what actually happened in the creative meeting going into the show. So let’s break it down here and I’ll explain why I really hated the outcomes of about 95% of this show.

Fist off, I want to let it be known that for as much as I didn’t like the outcomes of the matches…the matches themselves were mostly quite good and the guys and girls wrestling in the matches did the best they could with what they were given. Problem is, they weren’t given a whole heck of a lot to work with.

First on my list here starts with the ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Title. I was actually stuck at work while this match went down, so I figured I’d pick up WrestleMania live and go back and watch whatever I missed the next day. Problem is…on the Network, the “Preshow” is two hours long and includes Continue reading »

So I know I’ve said it in past years, but this just doesn’t feel like WrestleMania week. And while I’ve often asked myself if maybe I’m just getting too old to care so much about this “monumental occasion” as WWE likes to tell us each year that it is, I really think it’s a completely different reason since I quite often find myself getting overly amped up for NXT Takeover specials and live events in my area. Heck…when NXT ran a non-televised house show down in Asbury Park in February, I had a countdown going on inside my head for weeks! And while I knew no titles would change hands and that nothing of any significance would happen on said show, the fact that I knew I was going to be able to see my favorites do what they love to do live, really made all the difference for me.

Last summer, NXT also ran their first Takeover event outside of Florida’s Full Sail University here at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY the night before Summer Slam. It was a big event not only for me to be able to see these guys & girls do their thing here in NYC, but I also got to meet a number of people who I had previously only spoken to either on PWInsider audio or through facebook or text messaging.
