Well, I decided to do a podcast this week after all. I’ve also decided that I’m not going to the Vans’ Warped Tour either, mostly because I can’t afford to. So that means your iMPACT review will be up tomorrow. This week’s podcast clocks in at just over 40 minutes, it’s some quick thoughts on the past week worth of shows, and a long winded rant about why ECW now officially needs to change it’s name.
Now would be a good time, I suppose, to announce that I’m going to be doing more blog style posts in addition to the review posts – after the power comes back on at my place of employment. Yes folks, it’s been seven weeks as of today and my job is still to just sit in the dark and tell people to go away. Hopefully that will get fixed soon and I’ll be able to go back to a normal posting schedule around here.
I tuned in to ECW last night, and died a little inside. As a fan of the original ECW, to see a new belt – especially one so hideous – replace the original ECW Championship, it kills me. You might as well fire Tazz, Tommy Dreamer, and Little Guido while you’re at it, because the ECW I knew is one step closer to being 100% dead. The worst part about it was, last night’s show was in Philly. I miss Paul Heyman and Joey Styles. I miss the hardcore style, and I miss the old ECW Championship belt. As soon as the words “WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT” became adorned on the ECW title, that was the absolute end of the ECW I knew and loved. Especially since the show I’ve been watching on Tuesday nights for the last four weeks has pretty much sucked.
Whatever, I’ve got a job to do – ECW results and my thoughts, after the jump. (more…)
Well, the end of the World Heavyweight Championship match at the Great American Bash left things a bit undecided between the World Champion CM Punk and his challenger, Batista. So they had a rematch last night on RAW, with Punk saying “we’re going to keep doing it until we get it right,” or something along those lines. Well, they still didn’t get it right, but I suppose I shouldn’t give away what happened just quite yet – after all, there was a whole show before that happened that I need to tell you about!

Well, the legend of NostraJOEmas went the way of the dinosaur last night. I was only right on 50% of my predictions (including one that didn’t come up here, I picked Matt Hardy over Shelton Benjamin). Some of the ones I got wrong didn’t really surprise me, but others did. I wasn’t too thrilled with the PPV as a whole, though there were some bright spots, including the Shawn Michaels/Chris Jericho match. To be fair though, I think I went into the show with high expectations after last month’s Night of Champions, and the month of great RAWs and SmackDowns afterwards.
My thoughts, and the show results, after the jump! (more…)
Well folks, I decided to order the PPV tonight. I won’t be doing real-time, but you can get that from our friends at World Wrestling Insanity. Of course you’ll be able to catch the results and my thoughts on the show tomorrow morning right here on BWF. Tonight, I’ll give you my Great American Bash predictions. I only got one match wrong last month for Night of Champions, so let’s see if I can do as well for the Bash.
The card, and predictions, after the jump! (more…)
So, guess who the idiot is who didn’t remember to DVR SmackDown, despite the fact he knew he wouldn’t be home to catch the beginning. Yep, it’s me, your Bored Wrestling Fan. So I guess what I’ll do is give you guys the quick results for the first 30 minutes, and then go in depth and real-time for the next 90.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it – I’m a huge fan of Robert Roode and James Storm as a tag team. Which is why I actually enjoyed last night’s episode of iMPACT. Despite all the crap that happened in the main event at Victory Road, iMPACT focused more on Beer Money than any other performers. They went around whipping virtually everybody, including wrestlers, security guards, and fans. Meanwhile, Samoa Joe is letting Booker T keep the TNA Championship belt, while Team 3D and Kurt Angle swear that Sting is on their side.
Results and what will probably be some not-so-in-depth analysis after the jump! (more…)
Alright, we’ve had a crazy podcasting week – and as of this moment, the only podcast available on the site is the newest one – an audio podcast taken from what was going to be a video podcast. Then the cats managed to cut off power to my modem about halfway through the video upload, so I nixed that idea in favor of the audio. Then our podcasting software wasn’t working, thanks to an upgrade of our main software. For now we’ve got a replacement, but the previous Podcasts won’t work, and after all the crap I just went through trying to get this one up, I don’t really feel like going back and fixing them, especially when I’m probably going back to the old software once an update for that comes out. Anyways, enjoy!
RAW has been unpredictable as of late, which has been a very good thing. However, I think it all stops next week. The reason? Shane and Stephanie announced on RAW tonight that if the superstars and crew can’t band together to make the show run smoothly, actions will be taken – and William Regal’s suspension via the wellness policy ends later this week. I don’t expect them to make an announcement on WWE.com or at the bash, but I do expect an announcement at the start of RAW, much like the ones we’ve been getting over the last few weeks, re-instating William Regal as the RAW General Manager. That said, tonight’s RAW was the craziest one in quite a while. Despite the pleas from Shane and Stephanie McMahon, there was no order whatsoever in this show – and to quote DDP, that’s not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. Where to begin? Well, the beginning I suppose.
