I remember reading history books, about things like World War I, and thinking about how literally every decision was the worst possible one that could have been made and lead unequivocally toward disaster. WrestleMania 34 was that.
If the main event of TakeOver New Orleans isn’t for you, have a long hard think about whether you’re still a fan of the WWE’s concept of modern wrestling. It’s totally cool if you aren’t, but if this didn’t do anything for you, I’m not sure what else from them will.
When this massive weekend in New Orleans is over, I don’t think EVOLVE 102 will stand out as one of the top shows that took place, but it was certainly a relatively easy show to watch from beginning to end. With three fantastic matches and three good matches, you really can’t go wrong.
As the cheesy 80s goodness of Stan Bush’s “Fight to Survive” rang out over the PA system, Matt Riddle’s Bloodsport commenced. The event kicked off the festivities at WrestleMania 34 Weekend with a promise of a unique show, one in which the rules of combat were simple: A match can only end by knockout or submission. Oh, and there were no ropes either.
WrestleCon. Pro Wrestling Revolver. Pancakes & Piledrivers. The Super Indie Summit. You could be forgiven for thinking that the name of this show actually referred to four completely separate shows, but in a way that kind of fits the theme Sami Callihan and his crew are going for.
For the second year running England’s Revolution Pro Wrestling will be hosting a show with WrestleCon over WrestleMania weekend. This year the card looks more authentic to the feel of a UK RPW show with the additional mixing in of NJPW talent, a relationship that is intrinsic to the identity of the promotion.
Aleister Black looks to unseat Andrade “Cien” Almas atop NXT while Johnny Gargano fights former best friend Tommaso Ciampa in hopes of being reinstated. See what our staff thinks will go down at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans!
ROH Supercard of Honor XII highlighted by Cody vs. Kenny Omega, Dalton Castle vs. Marty Scurll and a triple threat ladder match is the biggest show in Ring of Honor history in front of their largest crowd ever.
SPRING BREEEEEEAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKK!!!! Yes, it’s here again. Last year, Joey Janela’s Spring Break took WrestleMania Weekend by storm, and now Janela is back again with Spring Break II, a card that looks even crazier than the first edition.
I am not going to proclaim WWN Supershow Mercury Rising as Show of the Weekend, but when the dust has settled and the weekend comes to a close, it would not shock me in the slightest if this was the best show to take place over the course of this weekend.
