The one where I make my predictions for SummerSlam
The four hour spectacular of the summer is finally upon us. Truth be told, I love SummerSlam. It’s always one of the best shows of the year and usually delivers some sort of payoff. If WrestleMania is the show for the mainstream, SummerSlam is the show for the fans. And this year? It’s a big biggie. WWE is running three nights in the same building, Barclay’s in Brooklyn NYC, and will have to pull out the big guns as it were to keep the famed NYC crowd engaged. Looking at the card, I think they’ve got a good chance of making this weekend one of the finest wrestling weekends in recent history.
The one where I make my predictions for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn
So, this is going to be a long one. This weekend we’ve got both the NXT Takeover special on Saturday night AND SummerSlam on Sunday. (4 Hours long!) All told, that’s about six hours or so of predictions to make. And I know what you’re thinking, “Dan, it’s okay, you don’t have to do ALL of them, we understand, you have a life, a wife, kids, a dog, white picket fence, we get it.” Well, to that I say, “How the hell do you know those things about me?! Are you stalking me? Trailing me? Hiding in my bushes? Don’t do that shit, it’s not cool.” But I digress…Read more
Cesaro is a wrestling god
Due to the nature of next week’s post, a prediction for both Takeover and Summerslam, this week we will take a look at another MOTY contender. As we examine candidates for the best match of the entire year, one thing that may surprise you, it certainly has me, is the inclusion of John Cena in more than a few.Read more
This event, if rumors are true, is shaping up to be very important for WWE
After a proper buildup, five whole weeks this time, the WWE Universe is poised to receive an audio and visual smackdown via the Network this Sunday as Vince McMahon and Co. present Battleground live in St. Louis. This event, if rumors are true, is shaping up to be very important for WWE as we are slated to see two huge returns (more on that later). How does the rest of the card look and who is going to win? Read on and find out.Read more
Bit of a weird one this week
Bit of a weird one this week as this post will go up either a few hours before or a few hours after the latest WWE Network special, Beast in the East, airs live from Japan. Being that it is airing live that means that for those of us on the East coast, well, let’s just say that 5:30 AM is way too damn early to wake up for a wrestling show (2:30 AM West coast… eww). And while this is nothing more than a glorified house show it does mark the return to in ring action by one Brock Lesnar (and Chris Jericho!). We’ve also got an NXT Title match and some fun undercard stuff. Who will win and who will lose? Read on humanoids and find out.Read more
What will happen in the next network exclusive event?
Since the launch of the WWE Network, rumors have been circulating that there would eventually be network exclusive shows/events. These started with the NXT Takeover specials, all of which have been incredible, and continues this Sunday with Elimination Chamber. The Elimination Chamber event had previously been the May PPV but was replaced by Payback this year. The card for this inaugural network event is shaping up to be a lot of fun. Who will win? Who will lose? Read on humanoids and find out.Read more
What does the future hold?
This coming Wednesday, 2/12/15, live on the WWE Network is NXT: Rival. It is the latest live special to air from Full Sail University and quite honestly, if the last special R:Evolution was any indication, it will be a kick ass wrestling show and bar setter for the rest of the year. This time around we get five big matches that I am going to attempt to predict right here.Read more
