It’s time for a show WWE has branded “the ultimate thrill ride” to finally take place — WrestleMania 33 at Camping Ground Stadium in Orlando, Florida on April 2nd, 2017. It’s the biggest wrestling spectacular of the…

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. Who will be the Universal Champion though? That’s to be determined at Fastlane on March 5th as Kevin Owens defends against Bill Goldberg. What…

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…

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…

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…

Did WWE FastLane really get fans revved up for Wrestlemania 31, or was it more of a pit stop on the road to San Francisco? Returning hosts Brad, Jay, and Ivan are joined by Andrew Gordon to discuss the ins and outs of the latest “special event” from the WWE and how it will affect…

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 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…

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…
