WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2015 HITS and MISSES

WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs 2015 HITS: The Lucha Dragons vs. The Usos vs. The New Day – Allow me to admit, I haven’t been as diligent at watching Monday Night RAW or Thursday Night Smackdown as I have been in previous years.  I find a three hour RAW to be a huge undertaking at this stage in my life, and with the company’s chosen creative direction, there just hasn’t been much for me to get excited about.  NXT…

WWE SummerSlam 2015 HITS and MISSES

WWE SummerSlam 2015 HITS: John Cena vs. Seth Rollins – Although it feels like we’ve seen these two in the ring a lot together over the past several months, they always manage to come up with a fresh feeling match, full of plenty of action and great near-falls.  Was the Jon Stewart involvement a little bit messy?  Sure.  He should have stayed facing Seth Rollins the entire time, and turned on John Cena at the last minute, as opposed…

In an industry that’s had a questionable ability to innovate over the last few years, the Elimination Chamber stands as one of the biggest and best ideas to ever be conceived. The fact that WWE is literally the only company with the budget and talent…

Calling the Shots: SummerSlam 2014

  Calling the Shots is back to cover the 2014 edition of WWE’s second-biggest show: SummerSlam. Taking place in sold-out arena in L.A., the WWE is undoubtedly looking to make a big impact this month, especially considering that it’s re-subscription time for the oft-shilled WWE Network. Hopefully the show delivers on all accounts. So, without further ado here are my predictions for SummerSlam 2014: The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler A natural show opener since Ziggler gives WWE events a…

WWE Battleground 2014 HITS and MISSES

WWE Battleground HITS: The Usos vs. The Wyatts: Although I feel this match suffer slightly from the 2-out-of-3 falls format, down the stretch you won’t find any better tag team wrestling anywhere on this planet.  Both teams once again brought their A-game, delivering incredible action, and believable near falls.  As I said, the format was my only question.  It was difficult to believe, given the history of these teams, that a fall would take place in the first 6-8…
