7 Things That Happened in WWE the Week of June 9, 2019

I won’t lie to you… I enjoyed that week off from WWE. Last Monday, instead of rushing from my car after a long workday to sit at my desk and watch Raw, I took a leisurely stroll to my neighborhood park, sat in the grass and watched the sunset. Later,…

Hunktears Recap: NXT Results 4/10/2019

The NXT episodes the week after a Takeover are always a little bit awkward. While the matches are usually something to look forward to just because of the energy of a Takeover crowd, there’s a lot of rehashing what happened at Takeover, which seems silly to me, since anyone watching…

NXT Takeover New York: Card Preview

NXT Takeover New York has a positively stacked card. Not a bathroom break in sight. WWE UK Championship: Pete Dunne (champ) vs. WALTER Dunne has been champion for so long that he’s gone from weird dirty sex mouse to wholesome dad. If you haven’t seen WALTER before, he’s an enormous Austrian…
