Ziggler, Shield win big at WWE TLC

Ziggler, Shield win big at WWE TLC

With no WWE Championship match on the card, Sunday's TLC pay-per-view more than made up for it. WWE's first trip to Brooklyn was a memorable one that could potentially usher in a new era in the company. At the TLC pay-per-view, both Dolph Ziggler and the trio of Seth...

Final Resolution: Never say never

Final Resolution: Never say never

Let’s be honest: most New Year’s resolutions fall flat within a week or two. Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles meet for what is advertised as the final time, but will that promise last longer than your new exercise regime? Also, Bobby Roode tries to buy a championship...

Hardy-Aries ladder match elevates TNA Turning Point

Heading into the main event, Sunday's TNA Turning Point pay-per-view was a decent show, with some solid matches, but nothing truly spectacular. But when the final bell rang, the ladder match that saw Jeff Hardy defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Austin...

Making sense of Hell in a Cell live in Atlanta

Making sense of Hell in a Cell live in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- It's just past midnight here in Atlanta as the Hell in a Cell PPV ended about an hour ago. As I write this, I'm still trying to make sense of all that happened, what should have happened and what will happen in the aftermath of the PPV. Unlike Jon Waldman's...

Punk gets Shell Shocked but escapes with his gold at Hell in a Cell

No Way Out: End of another era

No Way Out: End of another era

Remember way back when NWO stood for New World Order? That’s what awaits the WWE after tonight as someone was indeed fired. Four championships were also up for grabs and there were three clean finishes, so that’s a pretty good ratio. Also, a tag team finds themselves...

Roode retains yet again to cap off thrilling Sacrifice

Roode retains yet again to cap off thrilling Sacrifice

Bobby Roode is closing in on being the longest-reigning TNA World Heavyweight Champion for a reason: He just keeps winning. His title reign, though, was put to the test at Sacrifice as he faced Rob Van Dam in a ladder match with the title on the line. Who would...

Bloodied Cena shocks Lesnar to cap off outstanding Extreme Rules

Roode, Storm try, but can’t save disappointing Lockdown

For nearly half a year, James Storm has been hunting down Bobby Roode. In front of his hometown crowd, Storm finally had a chance to win the big one, but things didn't go the way he, or the crowd, expected, as Roode escaped by the skin of his teeth once again in the...

Roode squeaks by Sting at Victory Road

ROH 10th anniversary show mixes new blood with old

ROH 10th anniversary show mixes new blood with old

A decade ago, when Ring of Honor began, few really gave it much thought or chance -- and why should they have really? It looked to be just another independent wrestling company trying to come together and make a name for itself. But luckily ROH wasn't just like any...

Good matches but not enough of them at Elimination Chamber

Good matches but not enough of them at Elimination Chamber

It’s always tricky trying to anticipate what might happen at Elimination Chamber since it sits between two of the WWE’s biggest events in any given year. Suffice it to say that the WWE must find it difficult to put together as well, because Sunday’s show in Milwaukee...

TNA delivers excellent show with Against All Odds

TNA delivers excellent show with Against All Odds

Sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get a good pay-per-view out of TNA. That was anything but the case Sunday at Against All Odds. From top to bottom, the card delivered. The matches you thought would be good delivered above expectations while the lacklustre matches...

The Great White takes a big bite out out of the 25th Royal Rumble

The Great White takes a big bite out out of the 25th Royal Rumble

For the second straight year, fans most likely came into the Royal Rumble without a very good idea of who might end up the winner. That’s not a bad thing, as unpredictability is the key to making the WWE’s second most famous pay-per-view event so much fun. And just...

Genesis: Hardy wins match but not title

Genesis: Hardy wins match but not title

"And on the seventh day... He rested." (Genesis: 2-1). The same might be said about the booker of TNA Wrestling's first pay-per-view event, Genesis, which took place Sunday night. Either that, or it was sheer laziness that resulted in two title matches ending in lame...
