WWE Recap: Your Favorite Groupie Returns

WWE concluded a relatively uneventful draft on Monday night, somehow missing the “shake it up” element and managing to keep 97% of feuding superstars on the same brand. Gotta milk that well til it’s dry. Here’s a complete list of who’s playing for what team: Night 1 Draft: Raw Smackdown…

WWE Recap: Slapjack, Mace, T-Bar- The Gang’s All Here

An NXT trainer reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 this week, but I wouldn’t worry too much about that in this high contact sport where everybody is constantly touching each other. Instead, we should be way more concerned about a Bane gimmick in 2020. What’s going on there? Were the Scream…

WWE Recap: Same Stuff Every Week

Since WWE has decided to turn out PPVs like wrestling shows are going out of style, this week was devoted to building storylines for Payback in a tight five hours. While we were treated to some unexpected returns, we also saw a lot of rematches and not nearly enough women’s…

WWE Recap: All Around Me Are CGI Faces

Turns out the “state of the art” technology is mostly the same show we’ve been seeing for the past 6 months, only with pyro and very blank expressions from the people sitting at home. Like, was it just me, or did it look like no one was having a good…

WWE recap: No flames, plz

Next week’s SummerSlam got a cute new subtitle, because “The Horror Show at Extreme Rules” just went over so well. The show is now advertised as “You’ll Never See It Coming” but if you take off the first and last words, I’d guess that’s most wrestling fan’s sentiment about WWE…
