This Town Ain’t Big Enough for the Both of Us: Reigns vs Lesnar Part 15

Another banner week for WWE, and by that I mean boy, did they appear in a lot of news headlines. Aside from the most explosive story of the week (if you live under a rock, Colette already examined this for us), there have been multiple rumors of Sasha Banks being…

Who Unseats the Head of the Table?

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar closed out WrestleMania 38, a final kiss goodbye to an eventful weekend and a very big hello to 2 Belts 2 Big Dog. When this champ vs. champ match was first announced, I was more than a little concerned we were going back to a…

Brothers Til the End: Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins Still Got Beef

The general reaction to this year’s Royal Rumble has been unfavorable; it dragged much of the night, and only served to highlight the massive problem WWE has in connecting with any kind of an audience. Despite featuring wrestlers who are on TV every single week, nobody gave a shit about…

Once a Match of the Year, Roman Reigns vs. Edge vs. Daniel Bryan Didn’t Endure

I never thought Daniel Bryan would get two WrestleMania main events. He deserves more, of course, but the WrestleMania XXX triumph felt like such a large ask on its own. That this favorite from the indies that the WWE tried so very hard to put down would be the beating…

Nice Guys Finish First: WWE Needs to Turn this Car Around

Picture this; it’s early spring 2001. You sit down to watch Monday Nitro with the knowledge that this is the final WCW broadcast. WWE has won the Monday Night Wars, and AOL Time Warner is taking a hit only slightly less painful than the one they’re going to suffer when…

Big Champs Slapping Meat: Big E vs. Roman Reigns

Another Survivor Series is in the books, and as a whole, everyone was pretty bummed about it. There wasn’t much to write home about here, unless you’re a big fan of talking about but never seeing the Rock, and hearing Pat McAfee yell a lot. If you’re into constant yelling…

Can’t Smash ‘Em All: Where Does Roman Reigns Go From Here?

I didn’t watch last week’s Crown Jewel for numerous reasons, the least of which being that it aired at noon eastern time on a Thursday. But controversial pay per views and glossy packages for matches 30% of their audience didn’t watch aside, it seemed to be business as usual for…

Roman Reigns vs. Finn Bálor Is the Funniest Match of 2021

Believe it or not, I really wanted to like this match. In fact, I was pretty much certain that I would. Roman Reigns has been on the run of a lifetime with a renewed character that has brought a lot of life to his main event title matches this past…

The Guide for the Suplexed: John Cena (8/17/2014)

I love suplexes. They may be the best possible of all wrestling moves, something requiring both technical skill and brute force. Many of my favorite wrestlers use suplexes regularly—Bret Hart and his vertical suplex, The Steiner Brothers and their vast array of them, Eddie Guerrero’s Three Amigos, Taz and his…

Roman Reigns’ New Theme Song: A Review

Last week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown was notable for two things: First, it was Daniel Bryan’s last night on the show, as his loss to Roman Reigns in the main event was a SmackDown Career vs. Title match. Secondly, far more importantly, it marked the debut of Roman Reigns’…

Wrestling Authority Figures are Now Faces. We’ve Lost All Hope for Society

On the January 8, 2021 episode of Smackdown, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his cousin Jey Uso interfered in the main event, gang beating the new fan favorite Shinsuke Nakamura. WWE authority figure Adam Pearce grimaced from ringside, pulling out the ghost strands of hair that once filled his…

Roman Reigns Is WWE’s First (Kayfabe) Response to the Pandemic

Roman Reigns is back, and it is good. I mean it, too. World Wrestling Entertainment shows, for all of their attempts to freshen things up—think Raw Underground, Retribution, NXT call-ups that’ve completely gutted that show, and Thunderdome—have been stale and airless, innovation (and alleged theft) aside. They needed something else,…

The Owen Hart Police Report Is a Chilling Reminder of WWE’s History with Worker Safety

Earlier this month, when the coronavirus pandemic and the safety measures designed to slow its spread started threatening not just pro wrestling, but the live event business in general, WWE’s public stance was curious. The situation did escalate quickly, but WWE’s initial defiance in the face of the novel coronavirus…
