Daily Venom #9: What A Lousy RAW

June 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

Well, was RAW lousy tonight or what? In three hours, WWE gave us one very good match (Cena vs. Cesaro) that ended in a DQ, and one decent match that has zero storyline significance (i.e. just thrown out there; Sheamus vs. Neville). The opening segment went entirely too long and the crowd didn’t care. It was very much the Price is Right; Seth gave Apple watches to J&J and Kane, a vacation to Hawaii to Kane, and then a car to J&J. Surprise, no one even messed with the car. We get it, Rollins is the cowardly champion and he’s showering his minions with gifts to keep them [...]

WWE RAW 6/29/15 Preview: The Unstoppable Authority

June 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

Tonight on RAW, the reunited Authority battles the former Shield as Seth Rollins and Kane team up to take on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. That’s the only match WWE has announced for tonight’s broadcast. Last week, Rollins and Kane left Brock Lesnar laying in the middle of the ring. Will Lesnar be on RAW tonight to seek revenge? We’ll have to wait to find out. I’m sure Bray Wyatt will definitely be around to play some more mind games with Reigns ahead of their match at Battleground. Things we can expect from tonight’s RAW: The continued development of the [...]

Daily Venom #4: Jobber Squashes, Time Limits, & Finishing Moves… These Are What WWE Needs

June 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

I am increasingly annoyed while watching WWE television, and not just because RAW is three hours and Smackdown is essentially a replay. No it’s because there’s generally nothing to look forward to or anything truly build to. Let’s look at Monday’s RAW for a moment. These were the matches that took place: Dean Ambrose vs. Kane Prime Time Players vs. The Ascension Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus Neville vs. Kofi Kingston King Barrett vs. Zack Ryder The Bella Twins vs. Naomi & Tamina Ryback vs. Mark Henry Dolph Ziggler vs. Adam Rose That’s eight matches, each superstar [...]

WWE Elimination Chamber 5/31/15 Preview & Predictions

May 31, 2015 // 3 Comments

Tonight, WWE presents Elimination Chamber LIVE and exclusively on WWE Network (well, exclusively in the United States anyway). If you aren’t a subscriber to WWE Network, you can sign up now and then immediately cancel and watch the event for free, since the month of May has been free to new subscribers (as I suspect will be the trend going forward). WWE just announced this event a few weeks ago. I’m pretty sure it’s the first time a WWE pay-per-view has ever been announced just three weeks before it is suppose to happen. That probably explains the card. Don’t get me [...]

Review: WWE Ultimate Superstar Guide

April 20, 2015 // 2 Comments

A couple of years ago I received the Best Buy exclusive “Avengers Illuminated 3D Lenticular Gift Set” as a birthday present, and one of the things it included was a really great 200+ hardcover book called “The Avengers: The Ultimate Character Guide.” I enjoy the Marvel movies, but I’m not a comic book guy, so this book was quite valuable to me because it informed me of more than 200 of the Marvel heroes and villains. It was also just a really well done book, and in fact when I was first looking through it back then I couldn’t help but think that they should [...]

AJ Lee Retires From WWE

April 3, 2015 // 2 Comments posted the following this afternoon, announcing that former Diva’s Champion AJ Lee has decided to retire from WWE: AJ Lee (April Mendez) has decided to retire from in-ring competition with WWE. We wish AJ the very best. AJ has been a favorite of mine for a number of years now, so of course I hate to see her leave. At the same time, I’m happy for everyone who gets to fulfill their dream of making it to WWE, and winning gold, and then able to get out of that meat grinder. I would say it’s a blow to the Diva’s division, but then it isn’t much of one at the [...]

Review: WWE The Ultimate Poster Collection

April 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

WWE: The Ultimate Poster Collection Publisher: Insight Editions Category: Sports & Recreation / Wrestling Paperback: 40 pages ISBN-13: 978-1608875481 Insight Editions released their latest poster book last month, and this time it was a collection of WWE pay-per-view posters in a book dubbed “The Ultimate WWE Poster Collection.” Back in November, I reviewed my first Insight Editions poster book (Destiny) and came away impressed with it. This WWE one is really no exception. If you’ve seen one of Insight’s poster books before, then you know the kind of quality you can [...]

Now I’m wondering who banned J&J from ringside. Maybe [...]

A ReView From the Rafters: NXT Takeover – Rival (2/11/15)

February 11, 2015 // 3 Comments

Hideo Itami vs. Tyler Breeze – This match was just added to the card during the pre-show, but I think most of us expected it to be added because there was no way Itami was going to be left off the show. This made sense for the opener and both guys worked hard to deliver a good match. It wasn’t a show stealing performance by any means, but still a good solid opener that made both guys look good. Itami especially shined though. I’m with TVE co-hort Jules in that I’m going to mark out hard when Itami finally hits the Go To Sleep instead of simply teasing it. Great things [...]

WWE RAW 2/2/15 Preview: Triple H Makes A Big Announcement

February 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Tonight on RAW, WWE COO Triple H will make a big announcement that will “shake the WWE Universe to its core.” This in response to the WWE labeled “controversy” surrounding the Royal Rumble match. WWE’s website asks the question, “what’s next for Daniel Bryan?” Bryan finished his feud with Kane on Smackdown last Thursday night.  We’ll see what he moves into now, but all signs point towards a show stealing match with Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania. Bray Wyatt will do some more cryptic talking seemingly aimed at Undertaker. As usual, WWE [...]
