We’re nearing ever closer to WrestleMania 33 in Orlando on April 2nd, and with Elimination Chamber out of the way, we know that Bray Wyatt goes in as the WWE Champion.

A six week break since Roadblock: End of the Line transpired has given the fans time to build up their hunger for the return of World Wrestling Entertainment to pay per view. The funny thing is you don’t really need to make them ravenous for the Royal Rumble, which is by widespread agreement one of…

Other than WrestleMania, Survivor Series is the longest running annual WWE pay-per-view, having held more events dating back to 1987 than either the Royal Rumble or SummerSlam. Of course in referencing those other shows we’ve just made something abundantly clear – Survivor Series is one of the “big four” shows that are the signature of…

It has been a month since WWE Battleground 2016, and the most notable thing to come out of that show was that Dean Ambrose retained the WWE Championship in a triple threat against his former comrades in The Shield. This left WWE Raw with no champion since Dean Ambrose was exclusive to SmackDown Live, so…

It’s the “Grandest Stage of Them All” and the “Showcase of the Immortals” – but sports entertainment fans simply call it WRESTLEMANIA. It’s that time of year where every story, every dramatic build up, every feud and every fight come to their ultimate conclusion. Of course it all starts over the next night on WWE…

This is one of those rare months when two “special events” occur on the WWE Network. The last was WWE’s stop at Madison Square Garden on Brock Lesnar’s “Go to Hell” tour. Sunday, October 25th, 2015 will be the FINAL stop on that tour as ‘The Beast Incarnate’ must face his greatest nemesis in The…

This show is a bit of an aberration in the WWE line-up. It’s not considered a “pay per view” as such, like Night of Champions last month. In fact the next official major event is Hell in a Cell on October 25th. That said this is an official “special event” as far as WWE is…

Last month at WWE Battleground we got an unexpected swerve in the main event between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins. Lesnar was the -180 favorite to take the title back from Rollins, and although I was “technically” right when I said the underdog Rollins would retain, he didn’t do it on his own. Thanks to…

World Wrestling Entertainment is trying something new this year. In previous years WWE held an event between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania called Elimination Chamber. The danger of the chamber and its ability to reshape the WrestleMania card were big selling points, and back when there were two world titles, it was often used to…

The Royal Rumble is always one of the WWE’s most anticipated pay-per-view events of the year. The Rumble is the first stop on the road to Wrestlemania, and the nature of the 30-man battle royale normally ensures excitement all by itself. Instead of the Rumble match stealing the spotlight this year, it was the WWE…

WWE holds many “special events” as they’re now called throughout the year, but only a select few have been around so long that they constitute an annual tradition.
