WWE Royal Rumble 2012 If there was ever a show that highlighted where the WWE have lost their way in last few years, it was the Royal Rumble of 2012. The undercard for the show was a series of passable but too-short matches where nothing really stood out.  CM Punk and Daniel Bryan both retained their respective titles as expected.  ...

Wrestlemania XXVI

I’ll be updating this post later in the day as I’ll be at work and can’t watch the show live unfortunately. There’s no doubting that the WWE is a very different product nowadays than what it was in the Attitude era.  PG-rated, banned chairshots, stoppages for bleeding in matches…its actually quite refreshing to see the product being a little less ...
