The news making its way around the web today has Brock Lesnar ready to leave WWE for UFC when his contract comes up after WrestleMania 34.
WWE loaded up the card for No Mercy, a September Raw brand pay-per-view with two WrestleMania main event-quality matches.
AFP editor Chris Graham isn’t yet trippin’ on too much turkey, but he’s suggesting that 2-9 UVA has a shot at the upset of 8-3 Virginia Tech on Saturday.
Tuesday is wrestling day on The Chris Graham Show. Chris also talks UVA sports, Thanksgiving Day football and more.
AFP editor Chris Graham reviews WWE Survivor Series, and tries to make sense of the Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar main event.
Brock Lesnar was dominant in his return to the octagon in a unanimous decision win over heavyweight contender Mark Hunt Saturday night at UFC 200.
We can start with the obvious. The biggest losers at WWE Fastlane were those of us who spent three hours fighting spotty broadcast signals and common sense to watch.
Everybody was in on the big secret that Triple H was going to win the WWE title at the Royal Rumble, though the company did its best to try to make us act surprised.
We were heading into WrestleMania season with Seth Rollins the likely WWE champ, perhaps getting ready for a break and co-main event with Authority figure Triple H, or a Shield reunion with Roman Reigns.
WWE needed a solid Hell in a Cell on the heels of several weeks of low TV ratings. Did the show do what it needed to do? Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham, former head writer for Awesome Wrestling Entertainment, breaks down the pay-per-view, highlighted by the surprise return of Alberto Del Rio and a surprise end to the main event with Brock Lesnar and Undertaker.
Even Seth Rollins isn’t allowed to beat John Cena two straight times. That was among the things we learned at Sunday’s WWE Night of Champions, which ended predictably with Cena topping Rollins for the U.S. title, and Rollins then pinning Sting to defend the WWE title.
Jon Stewart interfered in the Seth Rollins-John Cena WWE title match at SummerSlam, which is news itself. Then consider that the former Daily Show host made his presence felt in WWE by hitting Cena in the abdomen with a steel chair, thus aiding Rollins, his TV rival since before WrestleMania 31.
Nice salesmanship on the Brock Lesnar-Undertaker match headlining this weekend’s SummerSlam: “Too big for WrestleMania.”
Chris Graham rates the matches on the card for WWE Battleground. How did the surprise return of The Undertaker play out in the final accounting?
If you thought you knew going in what was going to happen at WWE Battleground, yeah, you were off, way off. Which is good for WWE fans, who had clearly been getting bored with the product of late.
Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham anchors our live coverage of the 2015 WWE Battleground, with the main event being a WWE Title match between champion Seth Rollins and former champ Brock Lesnar.
Brock Lesnar is back in the mix, and it couldn’t have come a moment sooner. Ratings for WWE Monday Night Raw have been tanking in the tank with Seth Rollins at the top of the food chain as WWE champ, not so much an indictment of Rollins as the lack of marketable challengers.
Two things at WWE Money in the Bank we can predict with certainty: Seth Rollins is going to leave as world champ, and John Cena is going to even his summer series with Kevin Owens. Who wins the match that is the title of the show is very much a question.
CGI Raw Impact Wrestling host Chris Graham previews the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Also on this week’s podcast, Chris talks about the return of Brock Lesnar, the latest on Ring of Honor and TNA, and offers thoughts on the next steps for Samoa Joe in NXT.
Seth Rollins lost a clean fall to Randy Orton in a suspiciously early match on the WrestleMania 31 card, so suspiciously early that you knew that Rollins’ night wasn’t done.
Let’s make this clear right here and right now: Seth Rollins is the future of WWE. The question: is he also the present?
The debut podcast of CGI with Chris Graham talks Ted Cruz running for president, the latest in the Germanwings plane crash mystery, Brock Lesnar re-signing with WWE and Kentucky’s pursuit of an undefeated season.
Give WWE credit for having a flair for the dramatic. WWE champ Brock Lesnar went on ESPN SportsCenter, as Brock Lesnar, real life guy, awkward as hell, stumbling over his words, not Brock Lesnar, The Beast Incarnate, to announce, well, something.
The WWE calendar revolves around three big events a year. The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are interconnected, and just a couple of months apart.
The rumor mill has WWE head honcho Vince McMahon considering adding former WWE champ Daniel Bryan to the main event for WrestleMania 31.
A triple threat world title match, then the Rumble itself: this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble is setting the stage for The Road to WrestleMania 31.
