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.

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.
WWE RAW results and in depth analysis, after the jump! (more…)
I didn’t see the PPV, and I don’t really plan on seeing it, other than maybe checking out the Ultimate X match on YouTube in the future, so it’s not going to be all that in depth. But here’s the results of the PPV, in case you’re wondering.
Despite matches featuring the WWE Champion, the US Champion, the WWE Tag Team Champions, and the two women who will be competing for the new Divas Championship at The Great American Bash, this show was completely centered around the relationship between the number one contender for the WWE Championship, Edge, and his former fiancee, SmackDown General Manager Vicki Guerrero. Not that I’m complaining – I’m a huge Edgehead. I just think the champions should’ve had some mic time or something, since, y’know, they are champions. Oh well, whatever. Not really much to this week’s show – not saying it wasn’t entertaining, there just wasn’t much to it.
I’ll be honest, iMPACT wasn’t overly horrible this week – but I was barely able to pay attention because I had other stuff going on while the show was on. That said, I’ll try my best to give the show a pretty fair review; after all, we don’t want Disco Inferno whining on his blog about how internet wrestling writers are unfair to the TNA product again, now do we? Of course, it’s not hard to rip on TNA’s booking decisions – there’s a pay-per-view coming up this Sunday, and last night’s show took most of the focus off of the main event and shifted it elsewhere. Hell, the World Champion was overshadowed by a returning Sting in his only segment on the show, not to mention that four of the six guys in one of the other huge matches for this Sunday weren’t even on the show. Yes, Disco – us internet writers are unfair to the TNA product.
