So it’s been a little while since I’ve written one of these up about wrestling, but to be honest…there really hasn’t been a whole lotta good stuff worth writing about lately. I mean WWE’s been doing an alright job at giving us some fresh matches like when they pulled AJ Styles off the South America tour to fill in for an ill Bray Wyatt at the last Pay Per View or reforming The Shield…but for whatever reason, I just haven’t had the motivation to write about the product — until now.

Monday night, after Raw went off the air, WWE aired another installment of their documentary series WWE 24 on the WWE Network. If you haven’t seen any of these pieces, please go out of your way to find them as they’re some of the best programming WWE puts out. This latest edition of the show revolves around last year’s return of Bill Goldberg to the world of professional wrestling. Continue reading »

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.

Danielle and I are back to talk about our thoughts on NXT TakeOver: Dallas on the Network, the episode of Monday Night Raw that aired on 3/28/16, running down the WrestleMania card and a number of other topics. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: marc@marcstwocents.com and I’ll probably even read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!

Danielle, Scott and I are back to talk about our thoughts on WWE’s RoadBlock show on the Network, the episode of Monday Night Raw that aired on 3/14/16, the two shows’ implications on WrestleMania and a number of other topics. It should be noted that about 90% of the way through the audio, due to technical difficulties, my audio disappears for some reason. Hopefully this is only a one-time issue. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: marc@marcstwocents.com and I’ll probably even read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!

So I first wanted to do a write up about last night’s Summer Slam Pay Per View. First off, if you haven’t seen this show…go out and order the WWE Network already! This really was a phenomenal show! From top to bottom, I was thoroughly happy with everything they gave us. Continue reading »

Let me preface what I’m about to write about with this: Money In The Bank was on Sunday night, it’s now Wednesday morning and I still don’t 100% have my thoughts fully organized for this column, so please just bear with me as I put it all out here… Continue reading »

Well, now that the 2002 Royal Rumble is behind us, let’s take a look at where we stand…

Triple H is the winner of this year’s Royal Rumble & appears to be headed to the main event at WrestleMania, which kinda leaves the question still unanswered as to what Stone Cold Steve Austin will be doing for WrestleMania. HHH is quickly on his way to a fifth Federation Championship and with Jericho retaining the coveted title, I’m sure we’re in for a fun ride to WrestleMania.

Other bits of interest regarding the Rumble match itself, it seems that both Continue reading »

Ok, well here I am with my WrestleMania XII recap, for those who haven’t seen this show. BTW, I also did a WrestleMania X recap just the other day, so if you missed that, it’s right here. Well, on to the WrestleMania XII recap. Also, in case you’re curious, I’m doing this cuz I feel WrestleMania Sunday is as much a holiday as Superbowl Sunday. So on that note….on with the PPV.

This one’s live, on tape from the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California on March 31, 1996. Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jerry “The King” Lawler. Continue reading »
