Top Five WWE Money In The Bank Matches

by

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.

WWE Need To Make Daniel Bryan Right On RAW Tonight

by

It’s been a week since we have seen the WWE world champion run away like a coward as he tried to leave the building in his cheap rental car. Bryan’s momentum was sacrificed in 1 week for a cheap angle. All can be forgotten but it is up to the WWE to rehab their champion quickly…beginning tonight.

Social media went into a frenzy last week after what many dubbed the worst portrayal of a WWE babyface champion in years. Not since CM Punk was booked as the “lucky champion” several years ago can I remember a babyface champion getting buried so deeply on television. What the WWE did last week to Bryan made no sense and it is up to them to clean it up immediately.

Bryan has not had an easy road to the top. Some guys have plans laid out for them on paper and some guys change the playbook. ..click here to read more ,

Daniel Bryan vs. Kane: The American Horror Story Continues

by

After the World Title feud between Daniel Bryan and Kane degenerated into the Scream series without the phone calls this week, I decided to take a look at the next logical step in this saga. Here’s some horror movies for WWE to merrily rip off as they further baffle fans with their patented ham-fistery.

THE SHINING To protect Daniel and Brie from further trauma at the hands of Kane, Stephanie sends them to a temporarily abandoned winter lodge that her family owns. It’s just Daniel, Brie, their inexplicable son (Hornswoggle can do this), and the year-round caretaker, JTG.

Bryan spends a few days working on his wrestling memoirs, when he gets an insatiable craving for some soy-based Pepsi (which will set off alarms for ‘in-the-know’ viewers, who interpret this as a smoke signal that CM Punk is returning, when he’s really cursing the referees in the Blackhawks game from his couch while AJ ..click here to read more ,

Kane’s Brilliance Summed Up In First Segment of WWE Raw

by

In one 10-minute segment on Monday Night Raw, we finally saw the Kane we had becomes used to seeing when he first made his appearance in the WWE. And as a fan and a writer, I believe the move to a more destructive, evil, sinister character is the proper way to go in terms of entertainment value and the overall feel we are supposed accept as the WWE Universe moves towards Extreme Rules.

While this pay-per-view is one that has a Brock Lesnar feel for it, Kane – whether he captures the WWE World Title or not – will be the destructive force of the pay-per-view and will shine like never before.

On many occasions, I have moaned how the WWE has not given this man the proper respect he deserves. While the Undertaker is the most seasoned performer on the roster, Kane is the most underrated and most respected. And nobody ..click here to read more ,

Kane and Daniel Bryan Set for Epic WWE Confrontation

by

Mark Henry had a run as the World Champion. The Big Show has had multiple runs as WWE Champion and veterans like Batista and Chris Jericho have taken shots at trying to claim the WWE Title. Now, finally after changes in programming and the reemergence of Evolution, The Authority’s “enforcer” Kane is going to get a chance at title glory.

The only thing I can say is that it is about freaking time. If there is a wrestler in this company that has deserved a shot at title glory, it is the one of the most respected men in the locker room. The fact that both Kane and Daniel Bryan have worked well together in tag team wrestling and on other sides of the ring makes for a very enjoyable program heading into Extreme Rules.

Whether Kane wrestles under the guise as a member of The Authority (after recently being called out ..click here to read more , , ,

WrestleMania XXVIII: A Portrait in Wrestling History

by

WRESTLEMANIA XXVIII From SunLife Stadium in Miami, FL April 1, 2012

BACKGROUND It’s been purported that each WrestleMania event is generally planned a year in advance, and the booking is written backwards to support what they want to present on the grandest stage. While recent WrestleManias seem a bit more thrown-together at times, owing to an increasingly frenetic Vince McMahon being known to make constant changes, WrestleMania XXVIII was an event where a year-long plot was used, this time as an actual storyline.

One night after WrestleMania XXVII in Atlanta, John Cena called out The Rock. Rather than thrash the previous night’s guest host for costing him his World Title match against The Miz, a calm and happy-go-lucky Cena simply challenged Rock to a match at next year’s big event, giving both men one year to prepare for the clash of the ages.

The idea was unique for a modern time frame in which that $45 ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania 27: Well, That Was Different

by

-Another day, another running diary. But I keep coming back to entertain all (sixteen) of you that read my work. And, unlike certain hosts of certain PPVs, I will NOT phone it in via satellite!

-I’ll phone it in right here, in person.

-We are looking LIVE (Trademark Brent Musberger) from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, where fingerpoking and NFL playoff choking are all the rage. I’m joined at my brother Josh’s domicile by Josh himself, and jaded buddies Dave and Rob for some good action and, hopefully, some unintentional comedy to offset the cost of this shindig. Also, Domino’s Pizza is the order of the day, because if you’re going to pay to see Snooki, you should at least get fat on Cheesy Bread doing it.

-Keri Hilson performs America the Beautiful, and is the latest contestant in the “Are they Black or White?” game with Derek Jeter, Latoya Jackson, Alicia Keys, ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania XXVII: A Portrait in Wrestling History

by

WRESTLEMANIA XXVII From The Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA April 3, 2011

BACKGROUND WrestleManias these days are more like the Super Bowl than ever before. In the NFL’s biggest annual game, while the outcome determines a champion, thus making the game the most relevant part of the weekend, the lure and aura of the halftime show, commercials, and interminable pre-game shows loaded with puff pieces draw in the casual viewer.

With WWE’s ratings and buyrates waning incrementally from the Attitude Era’s ending, Vince McMahon has discovered other ways to appeal to the casual viewer, especially come “WrestleMania season.”

In the last year and a half or so, World Wrestling Entertainment has dove into the deep end of social networking. You can’t sit through more than five minutes of Monday Night Raw anymore without Michael Cole prattling on in his cacophonic shriek about “hashtags” and “trending” and whatnot. Wrestlers tweeting threats to each other on ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania 27 Results – The Rock Gets Revenge, Triple H Taps

by

It was the old guard that stole WrestleMania 27. The Undertaker vs. Triple H will go down as a WrestleMania classic. The Rock made a WrestleMania moment of his own to close the show and Stone Cold Steve Austin delivered a pair of stunners that had the sold out crowd rocking!

The Rock was introduced as the Guest Host to open up the show. No need to wait to see the Great One right? The Rock left his suit at the press conference and hit the ring in full workout attire. He didn’t get the insane reaction he has been getting on RAW but that could have been the acoustics of the big arena.

The Rock rallied up the crowd with his promo. Rock chanted “wrestle” and the crowd chanted “mania” (Guess he wasn’t in on the recent meeting.) The Rock cut a brief ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania XXVI: Somehow, Some Way, I Made It

by

-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 then all run home to vote “10″ on it immediately. So tune in this September when I re-review the show and ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania XXVI: A Portrait in Wrestling History

by

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 Monday night, countered with something that would shock fans all over the world.

On January 4, 2010, for the first time in over twelve years, ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WrestleMania XXV: A Portrait in Wrestling History

by

WRESTLEMANIA XXV From Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX April 5, 2009

BACKGROUND There have been many to criticize WWE for not knowing their history, often distorting facts and erroneously relaying anecdotes with the frequency of a con man on the witness stand. But this time, WWE is going to be taken to task for its poor math skills as well.

WrestleMania XXV was dubbed “The Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of WrestleMania”, which implies that WrestleMania began in 1984. While one may argue that the idea for event’s inception may have come from the year of Ronald Reagan’s re-election, the first event, clearly, took place in 1985.

“The Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of WrestleMania” was a repeated phrase, used dozens of times per broadcast in the weeks leading to the April 5 bonanza. It seemed almost apropos that a company would get something wrong, and then to their guns, continuing to get it wrong ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
