After the shocking conclusion to WWE Survivor Series 2016 last month, with last minute changes that confounded both the oddsmakers and the casual viewer, we are back for TLC 2016 on the WWE Network. Unlike Survivor Series this event is a brand exclusive pay per view, so all of the featured wrestlers and featured matches…

The WWE Raw brand took over last time at Clash of Champions 2016, and now it’s time for the SmackDown brand to be on top again as No Mercy name returns for the first time since 2008. In a show that features a title vs. career match, a tag team title match, a women’s title…

This Sunday marks the first exclusively branded WWE Pay-Per-View since the company decided to revisit the brand extension concept back in July. WWE Backlash will emanate from Richmond, Virginia on the WWE Network and PPV. The short three week break between Summerslam and Backlash will be more common moving forward, as the company has expanded…

Following Extreme Rules last month on the WWE Network we’re back again for the seventh ever edition of Money in the Bank as a stand alone PPV. It’s also WWE’s first ever PPV at the T-Mobile Arena, which only opened a couple of months ago in Las Vegas. It’s also the first major “sports” event…

Just a few weeks after WWE Payback 2016 we’re already back for Extreme Rules, which airs May 22, 2016 on the WWE Network. That may seem to be too soon for another big event, but WWE isn’t afraid to stack these events up in quick succession, given they’ve got a built in audience of over…

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…

Welcome back to our monthly WWE pay per view betting odds preview. Last month if you picked Triple H to win the Royal Rumble and claim the World Heavyweight Title you were in good company. He was the favorite going in at -150 and used his position as “The Authority” to enter himself #30 in…

Welcome back to our monthly WWE preview with the latest betting odds for live events on the WWE Network. We used to call these things “pay-per-view” but these days you subscribe to the Network and pay $9.99 a month. Not such a bad deal compared to what they used to cost via cable or satellite….

It’s a little odd for WWE to come back with another major event two weeks after the Payback PPV, but it’s easier to understand when you realize that the WWE Network offered a free trial to subscribers for the month of May. Having a card like Elimination Chamber is the hook for grateful viewers to…

This week on The SEA, your co-hosts discuss the saviors of the WWE tag-team division, The New Day, and all the other happenings from WWE Payback. They also delve into the follow-up Monday Night Raw, and take a quick look ahead to NXT Takeover: Unstoppable. Of course, the offbeat banter and some Lucha Underground praise…

Last month at Extreme Rules, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was able to retain his title by escaping from the cage in a match where Randy Orton was banned from using his signature RKO finish. To the surprise of very few, he got a helping hand from WWE Director of Operations Kane, but the…

It has been a month now since WrestleMania 31, and the landscape of WWE was drastically altered by that show. Going in it was widely believed that Brock Lesnar would retain the World Heavyweight Title, especially given he announced a WWE contract extension before the PPV, and the hard push of Roman Reigns to the…

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…

After the lull in the wrestling year we call Tables, Ladders & Chairs (and Stairs) it’s time to bring back excitement with one of the “Big Four” of the calendar year. That’s right! Just one day after Anthony “Rumble” Johnson earned a UFC light heavyweight title shot, it’s time for WWE’s annual Royal Rumble. The…

WWE’s 2014 Survivor Series provided more excitement than could have been anticipated in our preview, but that’s in part because there were no betting odds on Sting making his WWE debut. If there was a betting line it would have paid off big for me, although no responsible sports book would let you place that…

If you felt that the last month’s build from Hell in a Cell to Survivor Series was a little underwhelming, you’re not alone. I personally find it hard to get behind a “WWE Universe” where Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Wade Barrett are all off TV for extended lengths of time due to injury. To…

WWE returns with the first event following Night of Champions 2014, where Brock Lesnar successfully defended the WWE Championship with a little help from his friends… or are they? Seth Rollins is not an easy man to figure out. At times he seems to be working hand in hand with The Authority – Triple H…

WWE has been in a bit of a lull since SummerSlam 2014 took place. Perhaps that owes to the fact WWE doesn’t usually space events five weeks apart. It may also be that Brock Lesnar so completely destroyed John Cena that the WWE Universe couldn’t even fathom what’s next. It seems the creative forces in…

Nashville, Tennessee will host the World Wrestling Federation’s ‘Night of Champions’ PPV headlined by the title bout between Brock Lesnar and John Cena. Despite the scripted nature of the WWE’s entertainment, 5Dimes Sportsbook has Lesnar, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, as a (-460) favorite with the comeback on Cena at (+320). Before you poo poo…

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. Everybody knows about WrestleMania of course – it’s the pinnacle of the wrestling calendar every single year – the grand daddy of them all. The second longest…

WWE Money in the Bank 2014 crowned a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, albeit one with a familiar name and face. Say it with me now {*ahem*} THE CHAMP IS HERE! Whether you like it or not, John Cena is now in his 15th reign as a major WWE world champion. If it turns out…

The world of pro wrestling has been turned upside down and inside out since last month’s WWE Payback PPV (or if you prefer WWE’s new term “special event”). Daniel Bryan was already on the bench following a neck injury, but bad news turned to worse as the results of his surgery didn’t immediately resolve the…
