My Thoughts on WWE Payback 2016

WWE Payback 2016 Results

First, during the Tag Team Tournament Finals Match between The Realest Guys in the Room (Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady) and The Vaudevillains to determine the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship, an unfortunate incident happened. Not too long into the match, Enzo Amore’s head bounced off the middle rope and then the back of his head hit the ring apron causing some severe damage, which caused the referee to throw the match out. Enzo ended up having to be stretchered out of the arena and taken to a local medical facility; he was diagnosed with a concussion, but fortunately, all other tests came back negative. I would like to point out that this injury is not a storyline injury, Enzo really got hurt. It is very unfortunate that the match had to end under these circumstances, but it just goes to show that injuries can happen at any given time. We definitely wish Enzo a speedy recovery.

 

There is also the match between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. After Owens beat Zayn fair and square, Owens tarnished that by attacking him after the match. Owens then insisted that Byron Saxton get up from the commentators’ table …

The “WWE Countdown” Is On

WWE Countdown

WWE Network has officially launched and it includes all-new original programs. One of those programs is called Countdown. Countdown is a program where WWE counts down numerous top ten things in history. In the premiere episode, WWE counted down the top ten catchphrases in history. The list included famous catchphrases like Booker T’s “Can you dig it, Sucka?”, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “If you Smell what The Rock…is cookin’”, Daniel Bryan’s “Yes! Yes! Yes!” and more. The #1 catchphrase was none other than Ric Flair’s “Woooooo!”. One catch phrase that was “Above and Beyond” the list was Vincent K. McMahon’s “You’re Fired!”. One of the best parts about the premiere episode of this program was that not only was Vickie Guerrero’s “Excuse Me!” not mentioned once, but Vickie was not shown on this episode at all; I guess there is a God. Based on this premiere episode, I truly believe there are more awesome things to come on Countdown.…

Reid Flair Passes Away

Reid Flair, son of Wrestling Hall of Famer Ric Flair, passed away earlier today. There is still ongoing investigation of what caused his death. Following in the footsteps of his famous father, Reid was a 2nd generation superstar. Sadly, we will never know if Reid would have ever reached the pinnacle that his father had reached. Reid was 25 years old. Our deepest condolences certainly go out to all of his fans, friends, and family.…

WWE Raw 3-4-13 Review

Raw went “Old School” last night. Everything was “Old School” from the announcer and referee uniforms to all the stage settings. These sorts of things definitely take me back to when I was a kid. A lot of “Old School” superstars were on hand as well. These superstars included WWE Hall of Famers Gene Okerlund, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, etc. The show began with the return of The Undertaker, who made his way out into the arena to signify a match at WrestleMania 29. Sheamus, Big Show, Randy Orton, and CM Punk all stated their cases for facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero decided to make a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine which one of the 4 men would face Undertaker at WrestleMania. Cm Punk ended up getting the win; therefore, it will be Undertaker vs. Punk at WrestleMania. Also, it was the 90th birthday of WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young. In a WWE.COM Exclusive video, she was presented a replica of the WWE Divas Championship with her nameplate on it as a birthday gift from both WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H and …

Sting vs. The Rock

Sting vs. The Rock

The Rock has faced many of wrestling’s biggest names of all time. He has faced
names like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, John
Cena, Triple H, and The Undertaker. But there is one name he has yet to face and
that name is Sting. Sting and The Rock spent a majority of their two respective
careers during the Monday Night War (between WWE Raw and WCW Nitro). While
Sting was part of WCW, The Rock was part of the WWE. There were many names that
jumped ship between the two companies during this time, but Sting and The Rock
were two names that never jumped ship. And to this day, these two big names
still remain in two different wrestling companies (The Rock still with WWE and
Sting with TNA). Perhaps these are the reasons why these two big names have
never faced each other one-on-one before. I’m still hoping this match will
happen someday, somehow. Who do you think would win?…

Sting vs. Randy Orton

Sting vs. Randy Orton

Randy Orton used to be called The Legend Killer. He has faced numerous legends
throughout his career. These legends include Hulk Hogan, Mick Foley, Edge, Sgt. Slaughter,
Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, and Triple H. But
there is one legend that Randy Orton has yet to face and that legend is Sting.
While these two huge names have never been a part of the same wrestling
company, if somehow this match were to happen, it would have the makings of
classic encounter, much like many of the other legends Randy Orton has faced. Who do you think would win?…
