WWE RAW 10/20/14 Preview: Nearing The Gates of Hell

RAW Feature Image

Tonight WWE RAW comes to us LIVE from the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO just days before the Hell in a Cell event on Sunday. We know that Dean Ambrose will team with John Cena to take on Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Kane in a 3-on-2 handicap match. We also know that the Hell in a Cell structure will be hanging from the Spring Center. I would imagine that Ambrose and Cena will get separated, and one will likely catch a beating inside the Cell tonight. Hulk Hogan is advertised to appear according to the live events page, but WWE hasn't mentioned it anywhere else. After the departure of Justin Roberts, Lillian Garcia will be handling ring announcing duty. WWE announced earlier that AJ Lee will be defending her Diva's Championship against Paige at Hell in a Cell this Sunday. RAW airs … [Read more...]

Wrestling Legend Ox Baker Passes Away at 80

oxbaker

Some sad news today as wrestling legend Ox Baker has passed away at 80. Baker competed in the WWWF and NWA territories, as well as Stampede Wrestling and the AWA. His career lasted from 1962-1988. WWE.com posted the following earlier today: WWE is saddened to learn that Ox Baker, a feared villain of the ring for more than three decades, passed away Monday morning at age 80. A 6-foot-5 behemoth from Waterloo, Iowa, Baker originally competed in WWWF in the late 1960s and became one of the most intimidating forces known inside the squared circle — both due to his unique look and devastating heart punch. Over the span of an impressive career, the big man traded blows with the likes of WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan, Dusty Rhodes and Harley Race. Outside the ring, Baker also put the hurt on … [Read more...]

WWE Smackdown 10/17/14 Preview: Dean Ambrose Battles Corporate Kane

WWE Smackdown

Smackdown rolled through Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday night, and these were the matches that were taped to air on tonight's broadcast. As always, this is a spoiler free preview. Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins in a non-title match. Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Layla in a non-title match. Sheamus and The Uso Brothers vs. The Miz, Stardust, and Goldust in a six-man tag. Nikki Bella vs. Naomi. Dean Ambrose vs. Kane. Smackdown airs tonight on SyFy at 7pm CT. Smith's Sentiment: I haven't read the spoilers, but I see a couple of matches on this list that look decent. Hopefully Ziggler/Rollins gets a decent amount of time. I really enjoyed the Ziggler/Orton match on RAW (maybe the best free TV match this year), as well as Rollins/Swagger. At some point in the future, … [Read more...]

WWE NXT 10/16/2014 Preview: Zayn vs Kidd

NXT

The following is a non-spoiler preview of tonight's NXT broadcast on WWE Network. The matches were taped back on September 25th. Baron Corbin vs. Elias Samson Sin Cara & Kalisto vs. Buddy Murphy & Wesley Blake Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Sylvest LeFort & Marcus Louis vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass Sami Zayn vs. Tyson Kidd NXT airs on WWE Network at 8pm, and is immediately available for on demand viewing immediately after the first run. Smith's Sentiment: Not the best looking card, but NXT is always a great hour of wrestling (from a program perspective, not necessarily in-ring action). Wasn't really a fan of Sami Zayn losing to Titus O'Neil last week, but whatever. They're still pushing towards the inevitable Adrian Neville/Sami Zayn NXT Championship match, so I think Zayn … [Read more...]

Smith's Sentiment: This really isn't surprising, nor is it a big deal at this stage. I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner, as it just makes too much sense. So long as it is limited, and as … [Read more...]
