The Snowman Cometh: The Month of May

So the month of May has come and gone, and what have we got to show for it? Let's review. Smackdown's Stronger: Once again we experience Vince McMahon striking gold by being an idiot. Vince is so wrapped up in producing his Raw Soap Opera that he stripped the show of it's unappreciated wrestling talent and threw them over to Smackdown. And it worked out for the best. The additions of Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Sin Cara, Ted DiBiase, Tyson Kidd, and yes even Mark Henry breath new life into what was becoming a very stale product. The biggest addition was Randy Orton, who needs to take over the Undertaker's spot as the Smackdown leader-- the one that doesn't leave, but holds down the show. Let's face it, Orton and Cena are too big to co-exist on the same show. It isn't the attitude era, … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 05/30/2011 Preview

The following preview is courtesy of WWE.com: Live on the next Raw, the WWE Universe will hear from the baleful behemoth, Kharma, about her unexpected emotional breakdown last Monday. What will the devastator of Divas say about her tearful episode? The rumor is still that Kharma is pregnant, but I doubt WWE admits that on air tomorrow night. Hopefully this segment is intriguing enough though, since it's probably the last time we'll see Kharma on WWE TV for at least nine months. I think the thing I'm most looking forward to is the follow up to Alex Riley's GREAT beat down on Miz last week. That could be a star making moment for the young Riley, and WWE needs to follow it up tonight with another strong segment featuring Riley. Related articles Can A-Ri Break Through? … [Read more...]

Watch a preview clip of the episode! We're down to the final three, and I this point I'm rooting for Andy. But really, I just don't want Luke to win. Should be another good episode at any rate. … [Read more...]

WWE Signs Lucha Star Averno

WWE has signed another lucha libre star from CMLL, this time picking up Averno supposedly on the recommendation of Sin Cara... according to Super Luchas. Averno is being brought in as a heel to feud with Sin Cara, a man with whom he has a lot of history with. It is believed that Averno will come into WWE without his mask, but hopefully that changes. This is a good signing for WWE and anyone curious as to what this guy is like in the ring and what a match between he and Sin Cara could like need only to watch the video below: Averno vs. Mistico (Sin Cara) in a 2/3 Falls Match from a huge NJPW/CMLL super show this January.

Retro Mini Review: Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr.

Ken Griffery Jr Baseball

Released in 1998, this is the only sports game (other than NCAA Football 2006) that has ever truly kept me coming back for more. How much more? Well, I played a full season every year until 2010...  twelve years.  So the answer to the question is, A LOT more. This incarnation of Griffey baseball wasn't as wacky as the SNES games that carried his name, but the gameplay was as good as ever and it featured real baseball players and not simply made up guys. It featured a level of realism and ease of play, without taking itself overly serious and getting bogged down in unnecessary features. One of the fun things about playing a full season is tampering with the rosters through the draft, trades and free agency. When you play a full season with all the teams, it can be difficult to bring … [Read more...]
