People that know me know that I’m a big symmetry guy. I can’t stand when something is off-centered or uneven. Watching me spread cream cheese on a bagel or in a beautiful casserole dish when making Skyline Chili dip could make the Pope cuss. That’s one of the reasons I don’t work out. I’m afraid one of arms or legs will get bigger than the other one and completely ruin my life. I’d rather have a heart attack as a fat slob than know my right arm is 1/8-inch bigger than the other… which brings me to John Cena. Continue reading
I’m sure by now you’ve seen about a million blogs, articles and podcast hosts list their WrestleMania 34 predictions. For the most part, you can usually tell how the show is going to go based on the Vegas betting odds and looking ahead at which Superstars are scheduled for work outside of the wrestling ring, etc.
I try to avoid those unless I don’t have much invested in the pay-per-view, and WrestleMania would qualify as one of those special occasions where I’m doing everything within my power to avoid any potential spoilers. So here it goes. This is my wish list of what I hope and think should happen at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. Continue reading
Tonight the WWE makes it’s last stop on the Road to WrestleMania 34 as the SmackDown brand takes over Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. With it being the last pay-per-view before The Show of Shows, I don’t expect too many shakeups with the major title pictures. However, that may be exactly what they want you to think (but don’t count on it, seriously). Will this finally be the night we see Carmella cash in her Money in the Bank contract that she’s been carrying around for what seems to have been 28 years? We’ll see… Continue reading
Welcome to a Labor Day edition of RAW Recap with El Jefe. Hopefully the grill has cooled down the yard work is completed; if not I got you covered with my review and predictions of this holiday edition of Monday Night Raw.
The show kicked off with a flashback of last weeks confrontation between Roman Reigns and John Cena. Obviously with it announced that the WWE will try to limit the path crossing between Brock and Braun ahead of No Mercy the Cena/ Reigns feud will be front and center for weeks to come.
Welcome to another edition of the RAW Recap with El Jefe…Monday night was action packed from the get go and would be all about the push for the “No Mercy” Pay Per View (Sept. 24th). How would new rivalries be built and old storylines continue heading into the event coming in about 3-4 weeks?
Welcome to another edition of the RAW Recap with El Jefe where I like to offer my prediction on things to come based on a review of each weeks episode. Monday night RAW kicked off back in Brooklyn following a wild SummerSlam. With the biggest party of the summer over the “Red Brand” wasted no time on Monday setting storylines for the next pay per view event; No Mercy (September 24th). No Mercy promises to be an event full of score settling and could see the rise of new superstars.
Last night Jefe got the honor of recapping a Monday Night Raw in the worst city in the world.. Tonight I get to recap SmackDown in the city that ties Pittsburgh as the worst city in the world, Cleveland. It’s too bad LeBron was at home watching Jingle All The Way with his kids and crying about how nobody wants to play with him anymore, because the boys put on quite a show.
After a lackluster PPV in Battleground this past Sunday, WWE needed to bring it on this week’s SmackDown to keep the Blue Brand relevant. Did they do it? Maybe, but I still think they have a lot to make up for after their recent flop. Continue reading
It’s the go-home match of SmackDown leading up to the Battleground PPV this Sunday, July 23rd, which means it’s time to put the final touches on all of the rivalries that have been forced.. I mean, building since the last PPV. Smackdown has been the better of the two brands of late, in my opinion, but I’ll be glad to see some of the programs being worked finally end.
The powers that be at WWE rocked the pro wrestling world this past week by having the United States Championship Belt change hands at the untelevised WWE Live event at Madison Square Garden. On this week’s SmackDown they recapped the AJ Styles upset of Kevin Owens in a very creative way, by showing the event unfold through cellphone video to further drive home the point that this happened off-air and was only seen by the lucky “few” that filled Madison Square Garden. I’m not sure what their angle is, other than possibly trying to drum up some interest in their WWE Live events? But if they were going to do that, it would make sense to do it at an event that wouldn’t normally be gangbusters at the box office like any WWE event they hold in NYC.
As the new United States Champion, AJ Styles issued an open challenge for the belt, which I think would play better if it was the anti-American Owens that challenged all comers, but maybe that’s why I’m not writing for WWE, although I’m not sure they could match my Milliron Sports salary.
