Top Five WWE Money In The Bank Matches


The WWE Money in the Bank match has produced some of the most exciting moments of the last ten years. The glorified ladder match features daredevil heroics, extreme punishment, and intense action. Today I look back and celebrate the top five Money in the Bank matches in WWE history.

I don’t think anyone realized in 2005 when the WWE announced the first Money in the Bank match the significance this match would have on wrestling history. Stars were made, history was written, and memories have been cemented forever thanks to this innovative match. With two new matches around the corner I thought today would be a great time to look back and count down the top matches in MITB history. Since we aren’t quite ten years into MITB I went with a top five as opposed to a top ten.

WrestleMania XXVI: Somehow, Some Way, I Made It


-We are LIVE from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ on March 28, 2010 for WrestleMania XXVI. Well, not me. I’m inside a one story house with a decently-furnished living room in South Jersey that belongs to my brother Josh, and we’re joined by friends Dave and Rob for this historic evening. Funny that our childhood heroes are all wrestling: Undertaker for Rob, Bret Hart for Dave, Shawn Michaels for me, and Vince McMahon for Josh (don’t ask).

-It should be noted that my feelings on this show may change in six months, as I’m writing this while coming off of the fumes of adrenaline from having just watched the show live. It’s like on IMDb when the users go see a hit movie, and here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania XXVI: A Portrait in Wrestling History


WRESTLEMANIA XXVI From University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ March 28, 2010

BACKGROUND One of the biggest differences between WWE and TNA is that when WWE utilizes older wrestlers, it’s to their maximum.

In the fall of 2009, TNA went ahead with a considerable end-run to bolster their roster, with the target of running a monster three-hour episode of Impact, live on Monday, January 4, up against Raw.

To sweeten the pot and lure in casual fans not familiar with TNA, the company brought in Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff to be major players, while negotiating with Scott Hall, Sean Waltman, Ric Flair, and Jeff Hardy, as well as other familiar faces.

WWE, knowing that TNA was going to bring their best laid plans to that here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Top 25 WWE Survivor Series Elimination Matches


Survivor Series just ain’t what it used to be.

First, it was Thanksgiving night. Then it was Thanksgiving eve. Then it moved indiscriminately to just any old Sunday in November. When it started, it was all about the elimination matches. Now it’s about the typically-rushed storylines that are often back-burnered in favor of whatever Cena or Orton are doing, with maybe an elimination match or two shoehorned in there somewhere.

Well, forget about senile Vince McMahon and lack-of-fun Kevin Dunn for a minute. Let’s journey back to when the event MEANT SOMETHING, and let’s share some fond memories of some of the greatest elimination matches that have ever taken place at the Thanksgiving night/eve/located in proximity to the holiday tradition!

After all, it sure beats “John Cena and The Rock vs. what’re-their-names.”


25. Tatanka, Bam Bam Bigelow, King Kong Bundy, and The Heavenly Bodies (Million Dollar Team) def.

Evan Bourne’s Return Only Adds to the WWE’s Tag Team Problems


The WWE is about to welcome back Evan Bourne to its family after a long layoff from injury.

Bourne had what can only be described as a cryptic message on his Twitter account the other day for his fans.

“Soon the caterpillar will will emerge from his cocoon as a shark with a gun for a mouth #airbourneiscoming.”

The message, which was taken from could be taken many ways, but the fact is Bourne will be back and could inject some life into the tag team division. The former tag team champion with Kofi Kingston has been out of action since March 2012 because he was involved in a car accident which broke his foot in four places and dislocated it in five.

While I am not a fan of Bourne’s (no specific reason), his return undoubtedly will add some spice to a stale division of larger wrestlers. Bourne could be teamed R-Truth, here to read more

Flashback: WWE Royal Rumble 2011 – A Cynical Look


Alberto Del Rio won the 2011 WWE Royal Rumble-My first running diary for pro wrestling since TNA Sacrifice 2010 nearly scarred me for life. However, much like Jake Roberts’ demons, I refuse to relent and I don’t go away that easily. No, I am here. And for the seven of you that read my work and get enjoyment out of it, I WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN!

-Unlike last year, instead of a four man crew, it’s been halved. Dave hasn’t had the temerity to watch wrestling since his hero, Bret Hart, staggered like a zombie at WrestleMania; whereas Rob has a case of the flu so bad, he’s been hacking up chunks of here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE Best Pay-Per-View Matches Of 2011 DVD Review


WWE Best Pay Per View Matches Of 2011 DVDEvery year, WWE does one of these DVDs, bringing you what they consider the best matches featured on PPV each calendar year (although they always make the DVD before December is over, leaving off the last PPV of the year in the process. I have never understood this.

This is especially true considering how good TLC reportedly was.). While WWE television was really hit-or-miss during 2011, they had a pretty strong calendar year in regards to quality PPV matches. If you don’t believe me, check this DVD out for yourself. The Best Pay-Per-View Matches of 2011 features 14 matches from this past year, spanning most of the PPV events.

While I had originally seen most of the matches on this set, there were a few that I had here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE RAW Supershow January 16 Results – Zack Wouldn’t Be Dead If Eve Could Change A Tire


Funkasaurus-Live from Anaheim, home of Walt Disney’s frozen head.

Opening Segment: Mick Foley Of course Foley attends a show in a city known for amusement parks. We’re getting CM Punk/Daniel Bryan vs. Mark Henry/Dolph Ziggler tonight, as well as Zack Ryder vs. Jack Swagger for the US Title, assuming Ryder is healthy. Foley looks to have had some botox. Foley even mentions Disneyland for the cheap pop. Foley says he’s happy being a walk-on participant for nostalgia purposes. Hey, at least he admits the “This is Your Life, Cena” segment sucked. Foley brings up WrestleMania 2000 in this building, as if the target audience remembers that show. Foley says his two younger kids have no memories of their dad wrestling. I guess we can rule out them watching TNA. Oh, and Foley is in the 2012 Royal Rumble. Foley’s moment is disrupted by Vickie here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE Friday Night SmackDown December 23 Results – The Big Show Is Getting Angry


The big showWelcome to the 12/23/11 edition of SmackDown! Hope everyone’s Festivus season is still going well. I have chosen my opponent for the Festivus Feats of Strength, so I’m set.

On a serious note, I would like to congratulate not only Zack Ryder for finally winning the WWE United States title, but big congratulations to Daniel Bryan on becoming the new World Champion as well. There aren’t too many guys more deserving than Bryan, who has been busting his ass for over a decade to get to this point. And, on a personal note, it is incredibly awesome seeing a man become World Champion who literally grew up about 20-30 minutes north of where I did, at roughly the exact same time. There’s always something cool about seeing someone local succeed so greatly in life, and it’s especially cool when here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WWE RAW Supershow November 28 Results – Two Title Matches & Cena Talks To Piper


Roddy Piper RAW-With Smackdown being live tomorrow night, I am on standby in case Dustin Nichols forgets, and commits to his usual Tuesday routine of flexing in front of the mirror naked while muttering “Dustin’s the greatest” on loop. Have no fear, CCB world: unlike Triple H, I DO work Tuesdays*
