Royal Rumble 2014: Recker’s Quick Review
Royal Rumble 2014: Recker’s Quick Review

I have to say after being away from the wrestling world for nearly a year I was excited for the 2014 Royal Rumble. The rumble has always been my favorite pay-per-view and as far as quality, even in the declining years of the PGWWE for me it has always felt like the old bumper stickers say about sex: “when it’s good, it’s really good. But when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good”. Here is my quick thoughts on all of the matches from last night’s event.

TNA Wrestling headed to the Fillmore in Detroit on the 22nd and the Ring Crew Wrestling Show decided to check it out because hey, why not?  Bubs is riding Day Two of a three day TNA extravaganza of his own (Thursday: Impact on TV, Friday: TNA live in Detroit, Saturday: TNA live in Grand Rapids as well as re-watching every TNA event from 2002 to today) while Dubya just decided to go because it’s his birthday on the 23rd (WISH HIM A HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON TWITTER: @lonerogue)

ROH in Dearborn, MI 1/18/13
ROH in Dearborn, MI 1/18/13

Ring of Honor rolled into Dearborn, Michigan (Detroit metropolitan area, home of Henry Ford) on Friday for an ROH Mid West Road Trip, hitting Milwaukee tomorrow.  ROH set the show up for DVD taping so we may see the show on DVD in the future.  It’s the opening paragraph, but I’ll go ahead and say it.  ROH, your lights are blinding.  But hey, it’s not like ROH has an impeccable reputation when it comes to production quality…

TNA Genesis 2013: Genesis of what?
TNA Genesis 2013: Genesis of what?

TNA decided to kick off 2013 in mediocre fashion with Genesis.  The card wasn’t particularly strong to begin with but you would think TNA would consider doing something to keep your interest, as there won’t be another PPV until March 9 for Lockdown.  Will there be some sense of cleaning the slate for the year?  Not really.

Ring Crew Recap: SummerSlam was Kevin Rudolph bad
Ring Crew Recap: SummerSlam was Kevin Rudolph bad

SummerSlam results.  Yeah, you know, that major WWE PPV that seems to disappoint every single year in some way, shape or form as the company proves they have little clue of what to do after their Wrestlemania feuds wrap up and they’ve moved onto new feuds that won’t really be continuing to the next Wrestlemania…

Ring Crew Recap: Slammiversary X
Ring Crew Recap: Slammiversary X

On Sunday, June 10 TNA presented Slammiversary.  Expectations were pretty much where they should have been.  Not high but not in the dirt.  We were expected to see a bewildering Hall of Fame induction, a Garrett Bischoff match, a Crimson challenge, Sting in the main event and it was announced there would be a bizarre appearance by Christian Cage.  However, Bobby Roode was also in the main event and there was two matches with strong potential (Aries vs. Joe and Angle/Styles vs. Daniels/Kaz).  Plus you have to watch Impact Wrestling to know that Joseph Park is one of the best things going for wrestling entertainment today.

Ring Crew Recap: Extreme Rules

The WWE’s fourth pay-per-view of 2012 starts off recapping the latest feud between Randy Orton and Kane. The falls count anywhere match starts out and spills out of the ring and backstage rather quickly. Randy and Kane battle backstage and into the bathroom, then into the greenroom where Zach Ryder joins in the fray. Randy and Kane battle back to ringside here the announcer’s table is quickly ravaged, Randy beats Kane with a chair for a bit, then RKO’s him on it and wins the match.
