Solid And Entertaining WWE Raw Ruined By Absence of WWE Champion Just Three Weeks Before Wrestlemania (March 18, 2013)

WWE Smackdown Is Not Great or Bad, But A Good, Solid Show (February 9, 2013)

I just finished watching last night’s WWE Smackdown and overall it was a solid show – not great, certainly not bad, but good enough to have enjoyed it with very little complaints. Even with fast forwarding through a 20-minute stretch … Continue reading

Despite Incredible Match Between CM Punk & Chris Jericho And The Hall of Fame Announcement of Bruno Sammartino, WWE Raw Was Just Plain Bad (February 4, 2013)
