'WWE Raw': The Bullet Boys Are Back in Town
Howdy wrestling fans, and a big thanks to Aaron Oster and James Montgomery for tending to the homestead while I was off for last week's Raw and Payback spectacles. And I have no idea why I'm aping cowboy parlance, or if that's even appropriate while recapping a show that went down in Omaha. But in the interest of corralling my thoughts, let's look toward Extreme Rules.

Last night pointed toward the May 22 affair by continuing to tease the many scenarios surrounding Roman Reigns, A.J. Styles and "The Club," eking intrigue

Arrow Fall Finale Recap: Darhk Intentions — Plus: Who Got Shot?

Damien Darhk’s master plan came to light in Wednesday’s Arrow fall finale, and it was disturbing as hell.

The episode starts off peacefully enough with a “clean up the bay” event, but things quickly go south when a drone starts shooting at all the volunteers. “There were kids there,” Oliver sighs to Felicity. (I see those fatherly instincts are already starting to kick in.)

Oliver, with the support of the team, publicly outs Damien Darhk’s identity at a press conference, knowing that the baddie will

The Flash Recap: Bombs Away — Plus, Who's in Cahoots With [Spoiler]?
This Tuesday on The Flash‘s midseason finale, Iris dropped a truth bomb while The Trickster traded in a far more lethal kind. Plus, at episode’s end, Zoom played, “Let’s make a deal” with a familiar face.

One thing is for certain: Fans of Iris West this week got perhaps the biggest gift of all, as after instances of a scene here and there not making it to broadcast, Miss West was well accounted for, leaning on Barry, for a change, to help her through a difficult time.

If you thought that learning the truth about Lily’s history would instantly heal her sons’ old wounds — particularly Damon’s — you’re clearly not familiar with the way things work on The Vampire Diaries.

“On the one hand, I’m glad her kids didn’t know everything that happened to her, but at the same time, Damon has had such resentment and hatred towards her with no idea why she did the things she did,” Annie Wersching tells TVLine. “So I wish they’d known some of the reasoning behind it sooner.

'WWE Raw': Dolph Ziggler Goes Chase Utley on John Cena

'WWE Raw': Dolph Ziggler Goes Chase Utley on John Cena
On a night when WWE was going head-to-head with Monday Night Football and the Mlb postseason, you figured they'd put together a can't-miss broadcast. Alas, that's less likely to happen when Steph and Triple H run into turbulence and leave their show in the hands of the "World's Greatest Director of Operations," Corporate Kane. (Hey, like Roman Reigns said, "This is real life," right?)

So instead, we got lumberjacks loitering, Divas dissing and Dolph Ziggler channeling Chase Utley and fighting dirty against John Cena. But in the end, was there really much of anything?

'WWE Raw': New Day Rising
The easy pops for the Patriots and the cheap shots toward the Red Sox meant only one thing: WWE was back in Boston on Monday night.

In addition to the requisite hometown heat, the Massachusetts masses also got an eyeful of a returning Brock Lesnar, in addition to robust appearances from Boston's Sasha Banks and New England's most divisive son, John Cena. Mostly though, there was a lot of drama surrounding Kane's split personality, in addition to a big night for the New Day that suggested the company finally

'WWE Raw': Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt Break Buffalo
To quote the signature opening of Bill Maher's monologue, I know why you're excited. It's because this recap marks one year since we started offering our weekly take on pro wrestling's premiere episodic series. Unless I'm mistaken, and you simply can't curb your enthusiasm for the glorified Msg house show that's airing live on the WWE Network this coming Saturday. In which case, all I can say is: weirdo.

Nevertheless, last night's broadcast was much less concerned with lighting the fiery path to Hell in a Cell than imploring

Hear ye, hear ye, we are gathered in this fine online forum to discuss the matters of the day as they pertain to last night's USA broadcast of sports entertainment. There will be several items on the agenda, including: a demon with the propensity for hiding underneath rings; a frustrated Diva who feels entitled to things; and a Bray Wyatt disciple who, to loosely paraphrase Johnny Cash, killed a snake in swampland just to drink its blood.

But we know what most of you were really thinking: Where's the Miz?

'WWE Raw': Sting Makes a Splash, Aj Lee Gets Surpassed
Here's the good news heading into Sunday's Night of Champions: All the belts are officially on the line, now that Ryback vs. Kevin Owens for the Ic strap was made official, New Day vs. The Dudley Boyz was cemented with the former's win over Ptp and Nikki Bella's been saddled with a rematch against Charlotte for the Divas crown.

Less encouraging is that the go-home show did little to intensify most of the current beefs, nor drum up much more intrigue for matches without any hardware at stake.

'WWE Raw': Sting and Seth Rollins' Statue of Limitations

Perhaps the folks in Baltimore were merely bummed after their Orioles endured a 15th loss in 18 games – how's that for cheap heat? ­– but they were a hard lot to please last night. Not that the show merited much enthusiasm. We are officially in the fabled post-SummerSlam swoon my friends, when good storylines and meaningful resolutions go on hiatus till things gear up for the road to WrestleMania.

Though on the bright side, Summer Rae fans had their fill, the Miz and Big Show benefitted from a prolonged second-hour segment

Ah, Tampa, haven for aging wrestlers (anyone seen the Nasty Boys?) and birthplace of Aaron Carter. But isn't there another celebrity born and raised in the Tampa area who invariably came to mind during last night's broadcast? A celebrity who, as of a few months ago, was an untouchable icon in sports entertainment, but as of this week, was on Good Morning America defending himself against perceptions of unvarnished racism and reconciling his severed ties with WWE?

I'm sure it'll come to me.

What a SummerSlam! Oh, wait, that was on Sunday. Well, last night sure felt like the real prestige affair, as there were debuts, returns and celebrity cameos galore.

Not necessarily a ton in the way of wrestling, of course, unless you were among those who enjoyed the broadcast's sidebar into house-show territory with that inconsequential eight-man tag toward the end. But I digress. In fact, I'll go one better, skip the formalities and segue straight into the five key things (in addition to the usual Twitter-friendly sidebar observations) that I

WWE 'SummerSlam': Jon Stewart's 'Daily Show' of Force
Hello, all ye Lass Kickers, and welcome to this fine-feathered recap of last night's four-hour extravaganza. Yeah, I still can't get behind Becky Lynch's catchphrase. But I can certainly get out in front of the throngs offering their two cents on tonight's $9.99 worth of wrestling action.

We witnessed a CW superstar humiliate a second-generation superstar, a former news-satire host cost a 15-time champ an all-time mark and the Undertaker get redemption thanks to a low blow and an inept official, among other improbable turns of fortune. More importantly (depending on
