Hell in a Cell started strong, but ended on a weak note. HHH had to be the star of the show, even though he wasn’t booked in any way, shape or form. The guys on the card were doing their part to make the show a great one, but somehow that wasn’t enough. The “Conspiracy” angle hasn’t been handled in an interesting way. No one was shocked when two “fired” wrestlers showed up at the …

Today is WWE’s Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View. Usually PINFALL Magazine posts predictions a day or two in advance, but due to recent circumstances they are here day of. The show doesn’t look very interesting from a match-up standpoint, but the on-going Mark Henry storyline has my interest piqued. While I’m not sure if Mark Henry is selling many tickets, he’s certainly selling more than he has at any previous point in his career. A …

Just when you thought the WWE was going in some kind of new direction, they go right back to the old way of doing things. The main event felt like something I saw on TNA Impact the last 2 years. The sad part is that the match was well on the way to being one of the best PPV matches of the year, and then they Bischoff’d/Russo’d/Hogan’d/NWO’d it. I don’t know what you call it …

Night of Champions is shaping up to be an interesting PPV. The times are seemingly still changing in the WWE, as two guys who were main eventing PPVs this year are challenging for the tag titles. The E has gone from not even giving the titles a look on PPV cards, to booking one 2 of their top 5 heels into a tag title program. Of course, there’s probably going to be the usual Cena …

Finally… The Rock will come back to wrestling! The WWE has confirmed that The Rock and John Cena will be participating in the same 5 on 5 Survivor Series match at the upcoming SS PPV. There’s no word on who the other eight participants will be, or if Cena/Rock will be on the same or opposing teams, but this is certainly a big bit of news. I would think this is a good way for …

This is from Ricardo “ImperiousRix” Gonzalez, who is an avid reader of the site, and definitely worth a follow on Twitter! The man was lucky enough to witness the madness of WWE SummerSlam live in L.A. last night, and he’s decided to share his experience with PINFALL Magazine. Remember, if you’re going to a wrestling show, send your report to [email protected]! It doesn’t have to be any promotion covered already on PINFALL Magazine, we take …

It was obvious from looking at the card, but SummerSlam was top-heavy. The first half of the show was barely on par with something TNA put on last Sunday, but the second half of SummerSlam was top notch. The finale was definitely something to talk about, even if you don’t exactly know what went down. That was one memorable ending. Monday Night Raw just became a whole lot more interesting. I don’t want to spoil …

WWE SummerSlam 2009 Review

With mere hours until WWE’s SummerSlam 2011, it’s time for PINFALL Magazine’s final SummerSlam Review Series Entry, SummerSlam 2009. I figured with CM Punk headlining tonight’s show, I’d close out with the last SummerSlam that Punk headlined. It’s crazy how much has changed in 2 years, but at the same time it’s also funny to see how much has stayed the same. There are some solid bouts on this card, and I’d say it’s at … Read entire article »

WWE Pay-Per-Views have been consistently solid this year. There are a couple that I wouldn’t recommend, but you get at least two great matches every month. SummerSlam looks to somehow top last month’s Money in the Bank, which had one of the best Opening/Closing matches in a long time. The reprisal of Cena/Punk should be enough to make SummerSlam an anticipated event, but there are a couple other nice bouts mixed into the undercard as …

WWF SummerSlam 1998 Review

1998 is the third entry (of 4) into the SummerSlam Review Series. When Vince and Company hit Madison Square Garden for a PPV, it’s always a good time. I was the ripe old age of 12 years old the first time I saw this SummerSlam. It was about the same as I recall, which means it was top heavy, like most WWF shows during this time. Not that the undercard wasn’t stacked in some ways, … Read entire article »
