Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down RAW 3/3/14: No CM Punk in Chicago

RAW Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Last night's RAW featured a lot of online buzz going into it thanks to rumors (coming from Dave Meltzer) that CM Punk would be returning to WWE after walking out of the company. Taking place in Punk's hometown of Chicago, the crowd was insanely hot all night and chanting loudly throughout the night for CM Punk. Amidst all the speculation that the fans would hijack the show if Punk weren't there, WWE did damage control by teasing Punk at the beginning and then letting the fans know he wouldn't be there. They kept the fans interested in the show and tried to take ownership in a "hijacking," and in the process delivered one of the best RAW's in a long time. Now on to what worked and what didn't in this edition of RAW: Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down. - Paul Heyman / Brock Lesnar Opening … [Read more...]

Ongoing LIVE Wrestlemania 29 Results

Hello, I am Julius, and I will be providing quick results all night. I would do a more detailed review, but this show was expensive enough so I don't feel like watching it with my face buried in the computer taking notes. … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 1/7/13 Preview: Punk vs Ryback in a TLC Match; The Rock Returns!

It's the first RAW of the new year, and that officially means we're on the Road to WrestleMania. WWE has stacked tonight's broadcast with a blockbuster main event and the return of the Great One. Tonight, CM Punk will defend his WWE Championship against Ryback in a TLC Match. Unfortunately for Ryback, it's virtually impossible to see him winning this match or for it to end cleanly. It will be Punk vs. Rock at Royal Rumble, and that sort of takes some of the excitement out of this match. It's likely The Shield gets involved, but it's also possible The Rock himself gets involved. Besides that big TLC WWE Championship match and The Rock's return (which he says will be the start of the story building to his WrestleMania match), AJ Lee and Dolph Ziggler want revenge on John Cena for he … [Read more...]

CM Punk Medically Cleared to Defend WWE Championship on January 7th RAW

Thank goodness! WWE.com is reporting some "breaking news" today stating that their sources indicate that WWE Champion CM Punk is medically cleared to compete on this coming Monday's RAW in a TLC match against Ryback for the WWE Championship.  WWE.com sources indicate that The Straight Edge Superstar has been medically cleared for in-ring competition several weeks after his undergoing knee surgery. The decision, if confirmed, returns Punk to action effective immediately, meaning he will defend his championship as scheduled in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match against Ryback. I say "thank goodness!" because who really wants to see Ryback vs. Paul Heyman? However, this is WWE we're talking about here and you know how they are. There's still a 50% chance we'll end up with the … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 11/19/12 Preview: Punk Celebrates 1 Year, NXT Invades

Last night WWE presented a pretty good Survivor Series pay-per-view event that ended with a bit of chaos. CM Punk was able to pin John Cena, who had been Shellshocked by Ryback. Ryback was in turn taken out by three wrestlers from NXT; WWE's development promotion. My favorite wrestler not previously on the main roster was amongst the three: Dean Ambrose. The other two men were Seth Rollins (the former Tyler Black from ROH) and Roman Reigns (son of Siki, brother of former WWE star Rosey). The NXT renegades laid a Nexus style beatdown on Ryback and put him through an announce table. It was a fitting way to make a debut; a gang assault on a guy who was a founding member of Nexus that was just about to win the WWE Championship. The big question for the tonight, and likely in the foreseeable … [Read more...]

DVD Review: CM Punk ‘Best in the World’

Please note this is a review of only disc one of this set, I have yet to go through the extra features or watch any of the matches, although from skimming them a bit, they all look to be fairly decent.If there’s one thing WWE does well, and consistently it seems, (and this is the sticking point) it is produce very, very good biographical DVDs. The one currently being promoted is for current (as of this writing) WWE champion CM Punk. ‘Best in the World’ tells the story of CM Punk from roughly his teen years of running his own backyard fed ‘The Lunatic Wrestling Federation’ complete with untrained wrestlers and a D.I.Y ring all the way to his career making unscripted ‘shoot’ interview live on Monday Night Raw in 2011 to winning the WWE title from John Cena at Money in the Bank in his … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 10/22/12 Preview: “Feed Me Punk!”

Tonight's the final RAW before the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event this Sunday, and if WWE is wanting to sell the PPV to people tonight they need to do so in a big way early because the show has stiff competition tonight. Of course there's Monday Night Football that will see the Detroit Lions (2-3) take on Chicago Bears (4-1), and more importantly there's game seven of the National League Championship between the San Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals. And I don't know why anyone would want to waste their time watching the trash, but the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is also airing tonight. In short, WWE needs to bring their "A" game and not give folks the temptation to see what's happening elsewhere. Last week, Ryback was named the … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 10/15/12 Preview: Who Will CM Punk Choose?

Tonight's RAW features a CM Punk having to make a big decision. We'll find out tonight who the WWE Champion will defend his title against on October 28th at Hell in a Cell. Will he choose John Cena or Ryback? The Tag Team Tournament comes to a close tonight and we'll find out who will challenge Team Hell No for the WWE Tag Team Championship at Hell in Cell when Team Rhodes Scholars take on the high flying team of Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara. RAW airs tonight on USA Network beginning at 7pm CST. … [Read more...]

CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin Sit Down With Jim Ross to Talk WWE ’13

THQ and WWE have released a new video promoting WWE '13 that features Jim Ross sitting down with WWE Champion CM Punk and WWE Hall-of-Fame inductee Stone Cold Steve Austin. This is a fantastic video, and you absolutely need to watch it. Punk, Austin, and Jim Ross all do an amazing job. I'd buy a DVD of these three sitting down talking wrestling. WWE '13 hits stores on October 30th for PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. … [Read more...]

Pre-Order WWE ’13, Get CM Punk Ice Cream Bar T-Shirt Alt Attire

THQ today announced another pre-order incentive for wrestling fans who purchase (from GameStop) WWE '13 before its release... alt attire for CM Punk in the form of an ice cream bar t-shirt. You can view three screenshots of Punk in this alt attire below. "I guess everyone's looking for a quote like, 'The only thing sweeter than a WWE ice cream bar is WWE '13,' but I refuse to say such ridiculous things!" said WWE Champion CM Punk. It's a nice alt-attire, but I'm not a fan of GameStop and so it looks like I'll be missing out on this piece of DLC (though I'm sure it'll eventually be released). If you want the WWE ice cream bar shirt, go pre-order WWE '13 from GameStop. The game releases on October 30th for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii. … [Read more...]
