The 20 Greatest WWE Wrestlers of 2016

Business-wise, it was a pretty rough year for WWE as RAW’s ratings hit their lowest point in the show’s history, but from an in-ring perspective, 2016 was no slouch. Just about every PPV of the year presented at least one match that was worthy of four stars or higher and many different wrestlers have been…

WWE Roadblack: End of the Line

In a complete turnaround from the beginning of the brand split, RAW has been absolutely decimating Smackdown in terms of quality weekly television. Show-long stories and relatively intriguing matchups have helped make the three-hour slog seem much more manageable. I expect this trend to continue tonight and am looking for Roadbloack to be a much…

Hell in a Cell 2016: Winners, Results, Analysis

After one of the worst months for RAW in history, the men and women who make up the roster must pull out all the stops to take their brand out of the painful rut they’re in. A lack of interest plagues every match of the night; hell, I don’t even know what all of the…

Burnes’ Turns: September 24-30

Thanks to Rolling Stone and WWE (an odd combination to be sure), this week was largely about the ’60s, which is pretty much indisputably the best decade for music in our country’s history. However, it’s the much newer “Sirens” and “Piano Man” that are old to me, presenting an interesting dichotomy for my picks for…

Clash of Champions 2016 Review

The brand split was a good idea in theory, but in execution has left a lot to be desired. WWE’s roster probably wasn’t quite deep enough to warrant it, especially considering WWE’s rather atrocious booking of its stars, but I will say that RAW has fared better in contracting star power. I expect this show…

Ranking Every Match of the Cruiserweight Classic

In case you didn’t see it, The Cruiserweight Classic was awesome. I have gone on record calling it the greatest thing WWE has ever put together. When the tournament began 11 weeks ago, I had no idea that it would be as great as it was, or that I would have my own website by…

Monday Night RAW: September 19, 2016 Review

RAW has been far-from-excellent in the last couple of weeks, but hopefully the addition of Cruiserweights to the show after the close of their fantastic tournament will bring some more eyes, and quality, to the show. Other than that, WWE will need to work hard to put over their PPV this Sunday, though they’ve already…
