WWE Monday Night Raw 10/17 Review

Pre-taped Monday Night Raw episodes are rarely of a high quality, and this episode is no different. The highlight was the crowd because the Mexican fans know what’s up. I did expect a bit larger of a reaction for Alberto Del Rio’s entrance on his home soil, but the crowd made up for it during his actual match. CM Punk is no longer the “Voice of the Voiceless,” but is instead just the Voiceless at … Read entire article »

WWE to Induct Mil Mascaras into Hall of Fame

The WWE (and their Youtube channel) have broken news that Mil Mascaras will be a part of the upcoming 2012 class for the WWE Hall of Fame. WWE Classics are currently running a “freeview” of Royal Rumble 97, which Mil Mascaras participated in. Not every inductee has worked in a WWE ring, but Mascaras has. It’s always of interest finding out who WWE plans to honor during WrestleMania weekend, and Mascaras is the first announced. … Read entire article »

Bound For Glory was a bit lopsided. It felt like all the highest quality matches were at the start of the show. The main event seemed to be a footnote after the crowd blew their load cheering for Hogan. The matches were of a decent to high quality all evening, but there were certainly some bad bumps along the way. For the most part TNA lived up to their promises with this one, although I …

After a brief hiatus, welcome to the second edition of PINFALL Magazine’s WWE Power Rankings. It has been a most unique week of television in the WWE. Monday Night Raw was somewhat mysterious, as it contained some fresh, never-before-seen material involving the “four-man show” opening segment and yet somehow managed to be quite predictable in the end seeing John Laurinaitis finally succeed in obtaining control of the show. Later in the week, we …

TNA Bound For Glory 2011 Predictions

TNA/Impact Wrestling have done a great job of building up their Bound For Glory PPV. It all started with the Bound For Glory Series, which was a bit messy, but had a great end result. The Sting/Hogan feud has been building up since the mid-90′s, and that will probably lead to a decent number of buys on name recognition alone. The Knockouts Division has been the lone female wrestling bright spot on television all year, … Read entire article »

Tonight is no doubt going to be geared towards building the feud between Big Show and Mark Henry. If it leads to a bunch of destruction and hatred, I’m all for it. I found it entertaining last time they were butting heads, so I have faith that they can keep up on that ideal. My only issue is if this leads to Big Show winning the belt, then it ruins what I love about …

TNA Impact Wrestling 10/13 Review

Impact Wrestling continues to improve weekly. The Bobby Roode push is full steam ahead and going swimmingly. They managed to sneak in a surprise run-in, which is nearly impossible to do these days. The only problem is that they’re still pushing Sting/Hogan as a main event. While some people, including myself until this week, want to see this match, it’s not nearly as emotionally involving as the Roode/Angle scenario. There were no signs of Eric … Read entire article »
