WWE Money in the Bank 2014 HITS and MISSES

WWE Money in the Bank HITS: Money in the Bank Contract Match: On each 2014 WWE Pay Per View, there has been a match of the year contender.  This would be that contender.  An absolute car-wreck that had the live crowd on the edge of their seat throughout.  The tension between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose was palatable, and the storytelling between them was absolutely excellent.  There were plenty of innovative spots, and career shortening bumps (namely Rollins being…

Monday Night RAW HITS and MISSES for 02/03/2014

Monday Night RAW HITS   Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton: Given nearly 30 minutes of television time, and a large part of it uninterrupted, Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan delivered arguably what might be the best match in the series of matches they’ve had in the past six months.  This was smash-mouth, high-contact wrestling at its best, and the match told a magnificent story throughout.  Negative points go to WWE’s production team, as I couldn’t have been the only…

Monday Night RAW #OldSchool HITS AND MISSES 01/06/2014

Monday Night RAW HITS: Overall Show: The first Raw of the new year was an absolute blast for this viewer, at home, to watch.  Sure, having a themed episode of Raw might not have been the best idea to begin the new year (especially when it was a throwback to “old school”), but more than enough happened on this episode to keep me interested in nearly every segment.  WWE went all out, as usual, with both the sets, and…

Cody Rhodes carving out own legacy

Born into what can only be described as pro wrestling royalty, one would assume Cody Rhodes — son of the legendary Dusty Rhodes and half-brother of Dustin (Goldust) Runnels — knew a lot about the business at a very young age. Yes and no, the eloquent World Wrestling Entertainment superstar said over the phone recently. “I knew a lot about pro wrestling at a very young age, but I didn’t know that I knew a lot about pro wrestling,…

WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2013 HITS and MISSES

TLC HITS: Randy Orton vs. John Cena: Absolutely the most satisfying WWE main event since SummerSlam, and an excellent way to cap off WWE’s 2013 PPV season.  Both guys worked extremely hard in this match, and left this viewer glued to the screen throughout the entire contest.  Although I had boldly predicted that Triple H would be the one who walked away with the championship(s) by the end of TLC, I had always firmly believed that if that didn’t…

Monday Night RAW 11/11/13 HITS and MISSES

Monday Night RAW HITS: Rhodes Bros. vs. Randy Orton: Is there a better story in the second half of 2013 than the return of Goldust to WWE rings?  The Twitter campaign that the elder Rhodes made to wrestle his younger brother at WrestleMania is well known, but it actually looks like that might be a possibility.  Goldust’s performances have been the highlight of every single show he has been on for months now, and last night’s RAW was no…

Cousineau’s WWE Hell in the Cell 2013 HITS and MISSES

With WWE’s most recent (and seemingly rapid-fire) Pay Per View offering in the books, I’m here to offer you my hits and misses. Hell in the Cell HITS: Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton: In my opinion, aside from suffering from being overbooked (more on that later), this was the match of the night.  It was a hard-hitting affair, and certainly both the better of the two Hell in a Cell matches, and better of the two World Championship matches. …

My Wife’s Picks: Hell In A Cell

  Each month I like to ask my wife for her picks for the upcoming PPV. She doesn’t watch WWE with me but she usually has pretty surprising accuracy. Here are her picks, against mine, for Hell In A Cell. This month, Jan Murphy has even joined in.   Intercontinental Championship Curtis Axel (c) Big E Langston   Sideshow: Big E Langston This one is kind of a shot in the dark. Neither one of these guys have much…

Jan and Justin make their WrestleMania 29 picks

Jan: I like Cena for a number of reasons. First, he’s still the face of this company. He’s been putting over a number of other talents in recent years and the mounting losses are beginning to hurt is credibility. Second, The Rock will only ever be a part-time talent at this point, so don’t fall in love with the Rock as champ. Finally, I like Cena to even this feud at 1-1, then a rubber match next year at…
