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…

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.

In what will be a weekly column going forward, I will be writing about each week’s Monday Night RAW; both “hits” (the stuff you need to see), and “misses” (the stuff you can do without).  I’d love to hear your feedback on the columns, as well.  You can reach me at [email protected] WWE RAW HITS Brock Lesnar Returns: It’s not much of a secret in the Cousineau household that I’m a pretty big Brock Lesnar fan, and his return…
