The Royal Rumble has been my favorite Pay-Per-View since I was a little kid. It’s easily the most fun event of the year, and I always get a kick out of the surprises and unpredictability that comes with throwing thirty pro wrestlers in the same ring at the same time. The rest of the card for this year’s event doesn’t really thrill me, but I will always love the Rumble match. So without further ado, let’s break it on down…
Long intros are still for jabronis. So without further ado (and in no particular order), load the spaceship with the rocket fuel and read on for the top five professional wrestlers of 2016.
So much has happened in the WWE since the last time I wrote a wrestling-related post. First and foremost, my top three current favorite wrestlers are now champions. I honestly never thought I’d see the day where Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles and Kevin Owens would be holding the three top titles in the company. As much as things have changed in the WWE over the past year, it’s still completely surreal.
There have been tons of new developments in the WWE over the past several weeks… and Doomsday Device has been extremely quiet on the wrestling front. That might seem rather odd, but so much has happened so quickly that I felt like I needed some time to process everything before I commented on any of it. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to gather my thoughts, let’s dig in, shall we?
Although the weekly shows often suffer from an overabundance of squash matches, it can’t be denied that NXT’s Takeover specials are the goddamn bee’s knees. If you want great wrestling, look no further than to the WWE Network’s archives, where each of these events can be viewed at any time, and get ready to have your mind blown by matches such as Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens, Sasha Banks vs. Bayley, and of course the mother of them all, Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura.
Between Sunday night’s Extreme Rules PPV , the following Monday’s Raw and the last few days since, much has transpired in the world of WWE, which means there’s a whole heck of a lot to talk about. There appear to be some pretty massive changes on the way that have the potential to “shake the company to its very foundations,” so I thought it might be fun to take a look at everything that’s gone on. Let’s break it down.
Another month, another WWE pay-per-view. But unlike last month’s rather lacking Wrestlemania card, Payback has quite a few matches that I’m actually looking forward to. Let’s break it on down.
