The 06/20/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including the Biggest Food Fight In The World!, a fantastic Aj Styles/John Cena segment, Seth Rollins taking on Dolph Ziggler in a great match, Team USA vs Team Not USA and more…
Independence Day: Indigestion
America! Terry Funk, yeah.
Raw opened on a 4th July dinner comedy skit with most of the main roster, and as soon as The Miz turned up in a pristine white suit, you knew what was coming. Food fight! Which was bizarre for a few reasons: 1) It was actually really funny, 2) Titus O’Neil just stood in the background hitting people with his giant sausage, and 3) it ended with Kevin Owens being hit in the face by a mystery pie thrower.
There was never any payoff to this, »

WrestleMania weekend was a huge spectacle for pro wrestling in general, but it was particularly wild for the World Wrestling Network family of promotions.
The group held more than half a dozen shows and events, including two fantastic Evolve Wrestling cards, a Czw show, the inaugural Heart of Shimmer tournament, Kaiju Big Battel featuring Kota Ibushi, and even a pre-WrestleMania barbecue with the legendary Terry Funk.
As rousing a success as all those events were, though, the crowning glory of Wwn’s weekend was the group’s annual Mercury Rising supershow.
More than just an Evolve card, the show featured participation from fellow Wwn groups Full Impact Pro and Shine, as well as a host of international talent (including Ibushi). The result was an incredible card with action for just about everybody – whether you like submission wrestling, striking, high-flying, or even comedy wrestling, Wwn had you covered. »

Raw rolled into the Wells Centre in Philiadelphia with Wrestlemania only 2 weeks away. Vince McMahon had a huge announcement regarding the match between Shane O’Mac and The Undertaker at the biggest show of the year, whilst Roman Reigns had more in store for The Authority following his attack on Triple H last week…
The “Road To Wrestlemania” made a stop in Philly for the March 21st edition of Monday Night Raw. There aren’t many cities louder and more passionate and Philly when it comes to crowds, but not even their enthusiasm could make this show anything worth writing home about. The excitement for the grandest show of the air is palpable at this time, but the Road has been a little bumpy this year as WWE’s stagnant product continues to cure insomnia every Monday night.

The modern professional wrestling fan may take them for granted somewhat, but three way matches were once extremely innovative. There is a lot of debate around where the concept started in North American pro-wrestling, with some claiming Ecw popularised the match with the infamous Terry Funk v Shane Douglas v Sabu bout in 1994. Regardless of where it came from, in the 1990s it was still new and fresh.
Due to the fairly modern creation of the match, there wasn’t a single triple threat match (as it is known in WWE) at WrestleMania until WrestleMania Xv in 1999. If you can guess who was involved in the match before clicking through the answers, your WWE trivia is on point to say the least.
Since the very first one, there has been a total of 15 triple threats on the Grandest Stage of Them All. All except one has seen a championship on the line, »

She's far from the first athlete to serve as host, though Rousey is the first from the world of Mma to land the gig. In the lead-up to her November bout with Holm at Ufc 193, Ronda told Rolling Stone that she planned to "disappear" following the fight – presumably to begin shooting several films, including a remake of Road House (don't get »
