It’s that time of year again. It’s time for Jeremy Piven’s favorite WWE Pay Per View, Summerfest….er Slam. This year is the 25th anniversary of Summerslam and I had high hopes for WWE’s third biggest event of the year, largely because of Brock Lesnar. Even after his return at Wrestlemania I didn’t know who he was facing but I knew he would be on this show and that I would probably be interested. I’ll start from the bottom of the card and work to the main event and give my thoughts on the build and my predictions for the matches. So without further ado, hey yo and here we go! » Read more..

It’s sometimes hard to believe that it’s been almost 5 years since the WWE scrapped the Cruiserweight title in disgrace. Yes, sadly, the championship that was held by such names as Brian Pillman, Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, and Dean Malenko went out with a wimper as Hornswoggle was the final champion. With the fictional network on the horizon and Monday Night RAW’s move to three hours, talk has surfaced regarding bringing the Cruiserweight title back.
WWE is badly in need of solid undercard matches. The tag team division has a chance to shine occasionally but not consistently. Wrestlers like Ryback and Brodus Clay just aren’t cutting the mustard and don’t go in the ring any longer than 5 minutes.

I looked at the WWE roster page and was surprised by the number of wrestlers on the roster who are 215 pounds and under. It’s a great range of wrestlers who vary from jobbers to upper card talents. With that said, here is a look at the current roster of WWE Cruiserweights. » Read more..

I’ll admit it, it’s been bothering me. For years I was able to rattle off the history of every WWF title belt starting from the early 1980′s. Things began to be more difficult in the Attitude Era, due to a combination of more championships being introduced and “Crash TV”, which changed the title like a hot potato. It was this Era that I believe was the start of the downfall of the Title Belts’ meaning in the eyes of the fans. My goal of this article is to give some easy steps that will build back the prestige of the WWE championships and help to bring back interest to programs that revolve around the titles. » Read more..
The supplimental draft is in the books and so ends the 2011 WWE draft “season”. Now that the rosters are presumably set (I know, I know) I want to make a prediction about the man who will benefit the most from this draft:
Since Rey Mysterio has been drafted to RAW, this feud will come to an end at Extreme Rules on May 1st. This will leave Cody free to feud with someone else which can hopefully show a different side of Cody from an in-ring perspective. The following is a current list of the Smackdown babyfaces: » Read more..
