World Wrestling Entertainment has dubbed this year’s WrestleMania as the “ultimate thrill ride.” Unfortunately, I have not been thrilled with most of the build up to their biggest show if the year. There are maybe two matches that I truly feel that creative has done a good job of building towards. Did this pay-per-view event assuage my fears, or reinforce Continue Reading...

SMARK Country: No Mercy 2016 Review

No Mercy comes live from the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA. While SmackDown’s last exclusive pay-per-view (Backlash) was solid if not amazing, we would see if the blue team would step their game up for their October event. JOHN CENA vs. DEAN AMBROSE vs. AJ STYLES (World Heavyweight Championship): This match started with enough tension in the air that Continue Reading...

WWE Clash of Champions 2016 Review

This Raw exclusive pay-per-view event is being broadcast from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. They are coming off the heels of a pretty solid, if not memorable, SmackDown Live event, Backlash. There seems to be the recurring issue of Raw having intelligent booking, but horribly scripted storylines and promos, whereas SmackDown has had pretty good promos and storylines, Continue Reading...

SMARK COUNTRY: Backlash 2016 Recap

I will say right off the bat that I have been enjoying SmackDown Live much more than Raw since the brand split. Only running for two hours instead of three, and having a superior announce team certainly helps, but the one issue I have had is that the championships on SmackDown have not felt as important as those on Raw. Continue Reading...

SMARK Country: SummerSlam 2016 Results

While writing this article, I can’t help but be ecstatic about the biggest show of the summer, and yet, I’m concerned that SummerSlam (for the second year in a row) may be topped by the NXT Takeover. Takeover was a hell of a show from top to bottom, with title bouts and grudge matches that had incredible buildups and solid blow offs. Since developmental Continue Reading...

SMARK COUNTRY: Battleground 2016 Results

I went into this event with considerably low expectations as not many of the matches on the card really “wowed” me. However, the hope was still there that one of the sleeper matches would wind up stealing the show, and that there wouldn’t be a need for the main event. Was this a faint hope, or did the rest of Continue Reading...

SMARK COUNTRY: Money In The Bank 2016 Results

This year’s WWE Money in the Bank event is being billed as the biggest Money in the Bank ever. This is primarily due to one of the main events, AJ Styles vs. John Cena, being the center of much media attention in the wrestling world. However, did that match live up to the hype? And did the other matches on Continue Reading...

SMARK COUNTRY: Extreme Rules 2016 Results

This pay-per-view event is one that I’ve grown ambivalent towards in recent years. Since the WWE went full on rated PG some seven or eight years ago, it’s taken away from the believability of certain match types. It is difficult to buy into steel cage matches, especially Hell in a Cell and Extreme Rules matches, when no blood is allowed. Continue Reading...

This past Saturday night, the Evolve 61 iPPV took place in Queens, NY. There were wrestlers from several promotions in attendance. Full Impact Pro’s Bravado Brothers, Drew Gulak from Chikara and Johnny Gargano from NXT are a few examples. However, it was the unexpected appearance of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling’s (TNA) Ethan Carter III and what he had to say Continue Reading...
