House of Horrors: WWE blows big spot on megashow

The verdict is on the WWE House of Horrors match pitting Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt: meh.


Seth Rollins out for nine months: WWE in crisis mode? Paging Brock Lesnar

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 Payback Preview: Who leaves the four-way as WWE champ?

Seth Rollins is readying himself for his second pay-per-view title defense at Sunday’s WWE Payback. The new champ will face one of the tougher challenges a strap-holder can have: in the form of a fatal four-way involving Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton.


WWE Extreme Rules Review: Not again!

So we’re past Extreme Rules, or are we? Because WWE is bound and determined to relive it. John Cena and Rusev have now met on three straight pay-per-views, dating back to Fast Lane, the one before WrestleMania 31, and we’re going to get part four at Payback.


WWE Extreme Rules Preview: Nothing to see here?

After the best WrestleMania of all-time, or at least the best ending to a WrestleMania of all-time, we have an Extreme Rules pay-per-view to look forward to, or rather, to not look forward to, based on the card.


WrestleMania 31 Review: Seth Rollins emerges as WWE champ

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.


WrestleMania 31 Preview: How does the night end for Seth Rollins?

Let’s make this clear right here and right now: Seth Rollins is the future of WWE. The question: is he also the present?

WWE TLC Review: Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Luke Harper steal the show

No Brock Lesnar, no Randy Orton, no Sting, no Triple H, John Cena on at 9 p.m. Eastern. WWE’s TLC pay-per-view was dominated by the next generation of WWE Superstars.


WWE gets something right? Good moves with booking on Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler

WWE hasn’t been getting much right lately. For all the hype the company is trying to give to its free month of WWE Network, for example, you’re not giving away the product for free if people were buying it.

Hell in a Cell Review: Did Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose live up to hype?

Eh, what a letdown. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose in the main event at WWE Hell in a Cell had a lot of promise, but the writers ruined what could have been one of the better main events in the past few years.


Hell in a Cell Preview: Can Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose carry a pay-per-view?

Live Blog: WWE SummerSlam 2014

Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham leads a live blog during WWE SummerSlam 2014. Matches include WWE champ John Cena defending against Brock Lesnar, Stephanie McMahon facing Brie Bella, Roman Reigns taking on Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose squaring off with Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho battling Bray Wyatt and Intercontinental champ The Miz defending against Dolph Ziggler.


SummerSlam Preview: Lesnar-Cena, Wyatt-Jericho, Stephanie-Brie, more

It’s the summer WrestleMania. That’s one way to think of SummerSlam, arguably, with apologies to Royal Rumble, the second-biggest WWE pay-per-view of the year, if only because of its timing.

Wrestling Beat: TNA on Spike after September, Orton punished, or Ziggler being pushed?

Randy Orton punished, or Dolph Ziggler being pushed? It’s neither, so the conspiracy theorists can go back to finding more evidence that a CM Punk comeback is imminent.


Roman Reigns vs. Kane, sorta, kinda

This week’s WWE Monday Night Raw was light on in-ring action, as this video from the scheduled match between Roman Reigns and Kane demonstrates.

Can’t believe they used this one on Smackdown: former WWE champs Chris Jericho and Randy Orton battle it out in the ring.


Winner and new WWE champ after Money in the Bank: Bray Wyatt?

Daniel Bryan’s injury and slowed rehab from neck surgery may have helped WWE stumble into a way to further elevate top heel Bray Wyatt: make him the winner and new WWE champ at Money in the Bank.


The Shield splits: Good move for WWE?

Seth Rollins turned on his partners in The Shield on WWE Monday Night Raw this week, ostensibly joining forces with Evolution in a split that was long-expected, but still somewhat surprising, given the push given The Shield the past several weeks.


Could the Daniel Bryan injury be the best thing for business?

The Daniel Bryan WWE title chase that began at last year’s SummerSlam was well done, to say the least. The payoff at WrestleMania 30 was the logical conclusion to a long campaign from Bryan to climb to the top of the wrestling world.


WWE News: Is it time for a John Cena heel turn?

John Cena is the franchise in WWE. The squeaky clean superstar is the man who makes little kids’ dreams come true, literally. Call him Mr. Make a Wish in that respect.


Report: Batista feeling effed over by WWE, on the way out?

Inside WWE sources have been laying the smack down on Batista this week, suggesting that the big man is nixing a pay-per-view main event with WWE champ Daniel Bryan because he doesn’t want to put the smaller Bryan over.


Extreme Rules? Extremely mediocre pay-per-view

Aside from the mid-card steel cage match pitting John Cena against Bray Wyatt, the lineup for Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view could be any Sunday night house show.


Should WWE break up The Shield?

There has been talk for months that WWE is planning to break up The Shield. So to the question: should it be done?


Do we even care about Ric Flair anymore? No!

Ric Flair made another appearance on WWE Monday Night Raw last night, getting the full ring intro to talk on the mic for a few minutes that otherwise could have been spent on the Roman Reigns-Randy Orton main event.
