Thoughts of a Pleb: A Raw step forward?

Wrestlemania weekend is finally over. It’s bittersweet, because on one hand Wrestlemania is generally when the product is at it’s hottest, and highest quality. On the other, I may actually get some sleep now. It all culminated in Raw last night, the show that widely considered to be one of the best of the year, partially because of the Wrestlemania hangover: all the fans stick around for Raw the next night too. This year though was a bit different. The word I keep using to describe was underwhelming.

Last year we had a Ryback heel turn, Dolph Ziggler cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase and won the World Heavyweight Championship, and The Undertaker wrestled his first match on Raw in 3 years, as he teamed up with Kane and Daniel Bryan to take on The Shield. The year before saw Brock Lesnar’s return to the WWE. We could be forgiven for expecting something equally as huge this year. Continue reading Thoughts of a Pleb: A Raw step forward?

I do have some thoughts on the event, as seen below… Continue reading Thoughts of a Pleb: Raw1000, CM Punk and more!

Money In The Bank Predictions

It’s nearly here, the Money In The Bank pay-per-view is tomorrow night and it’s one I’m really looking forward to – partially because it’s one I’m watching, and partially because I’ve always been a fan of ladder matches. I ran down who I thought was likely to win a week or two ago, and I will evaluate the 3 additions to the World Title MitB match later in my predictions. There are only 4 announced matches on the card, which makes me hopeful that all 4 will get a good amount of time, even with the expected addition of a squash or divas match.

No Way Out 2012 Predictions

Welcome to my predictions for the first No Way Out pay per view since 2009. The selling point of the show is Cena v Big Show, which will both take place inside a steel cage and culminate in someone being fired. Without further ado, let’s get into the point of the article!

Over The Limit 2012 Predictions

First of all, I want to apologise to anybody reading. At the end of the last set of predictions, I said I was working on an article looking at the main event scene in the WWE, but because of exams (and the World Heavyweight Championship match tonight) it has been put on hold, possibly permanently.

Anyways, there’s a PPV tonight, with 5 announced matches… Continue reading Over The Limit 2012 Predictions
