Booker T the surprise, but Angle still champ after Genesis

Booker T the surprise, but Angle still champ after Genesis

Undertaker’s return highlight of underwhelming Unforgiven

Undertaker’s return highlight of underwhelming Unforgiven

Bad booking mars Hard Justice

Victory Road full of surprises

Victory Road full of surprises

Vengeance banal and badly booked

Vengeance banal and badly booked

If the WWE was looking to swipe back at critics with a "Vengeance," they missed their opportunity with last night's pay-per-view. The show confirmed how, except for a few bright spots here and there, unreservedly generic and harmless their product has become....

TNA scores with Slammiversary

TNA scores with Slammiversary

TNA has been the recipient of quite a bit of criticism in the past year. In marking their five year anniversary, TNA returned to their old stomping grounds of Nashville, TN. A rowdy, vocal crowd at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium witnessed one of the better TNA pay...

One Night Stand a PPV gong show

One Night Stand a PPV gong show

What used to be an ECW-only pay-view is now a tri-branded event as ECW goes tonight from Jacksonville, Fla. If The Great Khali becomes WWE champion tonight I will resign my position with SLAM! Wrestling, effective at the end of this report. The Free For All preshow is...

WWE just passes on Judgment Day

WWE just passes on Judgment Day

Given that the Judgment Day pay-per-view was held in St. Louis, Missouri -- at the Scottrade Centre -- one couldn't help but wonder what legendary promoter Sam Muchnick would have made of a wrestling show main-evented by the horrendously under-skilled Great Khali. The...

No filler makes for a consistent Backlash

No filler makes for a consistent Backlash

For many fans, the annual WWE Backlash event is one of the premiere pay-per-view events of the year, given that coming off Wrestlemania, it is the scene of many re-matches from "The Grand-Daddy of Them All." Well, it isn't as if Starrcade is in contention for that...

Lockdown pulled down by gimmick matches

Lockdown pulled down by gimmick matches

TNA has one again ventured outside the Impact Zone to serve up another PPV offering, in this case, Lockdown, the all cage match PPV. Although TNA should be very proud of their venture to St. Louis, Lockdown was nothing short of a disappointment. Failed gimmick matches...

Undertaker the champ, McMahon bald

Undertaker the champ, McMahon bald

Always searching for a catchy theme, the WWE decided on "All Grown Up" as the hook for WrestleMania 23. With Detroit's Ford Field packed full of fans, at the very least the federation pulled in a fully grown take at the gate. The announced attendance of 80,103 awaited...

Samoa Joe denied at Destination X

No Way Out an exercise in monotony

No Way Out an exercise in monotony

Riddle me this. If No Way Out is a Smackdown brand show, why are there four Raw stars and an ECW Title match on the card? Maybe the WWE felt extra pressure to put its best foot forward since the show was taking place at Los Angeles' Staples Center, the site of...

Christian retains belt Against All Odds

Old guard dominates Rumble

Old guard dominates Rumble
