We only went and did live commentary of the Royal Rumble didn’t we? Listen to hours of shouting here, though apologies for the lack of the Raw Women’s Championship Match, technical difficulties affected the recording early on.
We have reached the half way point of the year, so what better time to take a look back at WWE’s 2016 so far?
Here’s the thing. Here is the reason I’m writing this article – I don’t think most people would say it’s been a great year. Week to week reviews that I’ve seen online say that the shows have been average. There’s always something to complain about, even amongst the highlights.
One of the main thoughts I had when I wrote about how the Attitude Era wasn’t that great was that despite us now classing moments as legendary, they didn’t feel that massive at the time. I say at the time, I watched old Raws on the Network, so I already knew of the moments themselves, but not always when they were going to happen.
But when I look back at 2016 so far, there are so many things I can point to and say “that was fantastic”. Continue reading
Sorry for the radio silence guys, it’s been a busy month personally. And it’s coincided with quite a dramatic lack of news in the post-Mania wrestling world. Considering how eagerly everybody was clutching to any scrap of any information at the start of the month, it’s one hell of a drop off.
But that doesn’t mean that nothing happened at all – this was Wrestlemania month after all – so this is your monthly news in review column for the month of April 2014! If you haven’t seen this format before, it’s pretty simple to pick up. I divide the biggest news stories of the month into three categories: Inside The Ring, for things that we see in the WWE on our screens every week; Outside The Ring for the backstage gossip that isn’t really developed on TV; and finally In The Industry for any non-WWE related news stories. Let’s get to it! Continue reading
It’s the end of the month, so it’s about that time where I look back at the biggest stories in the world of wrestling during March. Hopefully you’re getting to grips with the format by now, but in case you haven’t seen this column before, I use three categories – “Inside The Ring” for what we see from the WWE on TV each week, “Outside The Ring”, for the backstage happenings/rumours in the WWE, and “In The Industry”, for everything else non-WWE related.
This month it very much felt like everything we saw on TV from the WWE was Wrestlemania focused – as you would expect – so there’s not actually that much in that category this time around. And I should probably also say that this was put together before the go-home Raw, since I’m in the UK and that Raw is in April for us Brits. But let’s get right into it! Continue reading
It’s a new month again, and that can only mean one thing here at the Plebs of Wrestling – a nice, comprehensive round up of the biggest news stories from the last month! This feature debuted last month, and I’m keeping the same three categories to sort all the news items into Inside the Ring, Outside the Ring, and In the Industry. I think they’re all pretty self-explanatory, but if not you’ll get the idea soon enough. Anyway, by it’s very nature this is quite a big article, so let’s not waste any more time and get right into it! Continue reading
So this is the first of what will hopefully become a regular feature here. I am going to round up the biggest news stories/moments of the month, and put them all into a list. It will let me cover stories that I wouldn’t otherwise get round to covering, and it may be something to look back on with a bit of nostalgia. I’m going to post this on either the last day of the month, or the first day of the next, so that’s more regular content from the off!
I’ve split things up into three categories: Inside The Ring, Outside The Ring, and In The Industry. The first is what we see on WWE TV, the second covers behind the scenes in the WWE, and the last is anything outside of the WWE basically, in the wrestling industry. This will probably be quite a long article, so let’s get to it!
