WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review
June PPVs for WWE are typically a mishmash of finishing feuds and planting the seeds for bigger ones building up to Summerslam, one of the original ‘big four’ PPVs. Ones like Payback can be ‘sleeper’ PPVs that deliver far better than expected, and actually have the benefit of low expectations going in. With The Shield still staying strong and Evolution not giving up after their loss at Extreme Rules, it was inevitable that... 

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review
If anyone was to ask me what my favourite gimmick match of all time was, I could answer that in a split second – the Royal Rumble. There is no match more exciting, full of superstars and complex booking over the space of an hour or so. It’s a match that not only brings all the current feuds together, but reignites old ones and sets the wheels in motion for new going forward. After all, it’s the first stop on that famous Road to Wrestlemania,... 

WWE Survivor Series 2013 DVD review

WWE Survivor Series 2013 DVD review
Known as one of the original ‘big four’ pay per views, Survivor Series is always one of the highlights of the WWE calendar, famous for its traditional elimination matches. They are a unique opportunity to see friends and foes team up, and for superstars to overcome all the odds as they stand the chance of ending up facing five opponents if things go badly. Men like Randy Orton have made their names by becoming the sole survivor in these... 

WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 DVD review

WWE Hell in a Cell 2013 DVD review
Truly living up to his mantra of Never Give Up, John Cena shocked the world once again by returning from a tricep tear in just a couple of months. He walked away after his loss to Daniel Bryan at Summerslam in August, and then Vickie Guerrero announced him as appearing at Hell in a Cell in October. WWE never really got the chance to adapt to a Cena-less environment so we’ll never know if anyone could have stepped up to the plate, but Cena’s... 

WWE Battleground 2013 DVD review

WWE Battleground 2013 DVD review
After the feel-good moment of Daniel Bryan winning the WWE championship from Randy Orton at Night of Champions 2013, it was all downhill from there for Bryan. The Authority of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon observed a fast count from the referee at the PPV and declared the title vacant. Demanding more from Orton to become the ‘face’ of WWE, the decision was made to have a re-match at Battleground. Bryan was by far the best in-ring performer... 

WWE 2K14 Review

WWE 2K14 Review
When THQ announced that it was selling off its assets and closing down, the gaming world waited with baited breath to see who would swoop in and save their various titles and licences from a potential demise. As time went by, one by one the various projects were picked up by numerous publishers, yet the WWE franchise was still missing a home. For a minute it seemed that for the first time in the franchise’s long storied history it was under...

WWE Money In The Bank 2013 DVD Review

WWE Money In The Bank 2013 DVD Review
Since its first appearance as part of the Wrestlemania programme, the Money In The Bank Ladder matches have always been one of my favourite events, watching six (sometimes more) of the WWE’s most talented and promising superstars clashing horns in an action filled battle to reach that coveted Money In The Bank briefcase that dangles above the ring. Within that briefcase is a contract that would allow the winner a shot at whichever title they so... 

WWE DVD Review: Royal Rumble 2013

WWE DVD Review: Royal Rumble 2013
First debuting in 1988, thanks to the mind of Pat Patterson, the Royal Rumble is seen as one of the WWE’s big four pay-per-view events of the year. The rules are simple, the match starts with two WWE Superstars and then every two minutes another superstar enters the fray, each with the goal of eliminating the other by throwing them over the top rope. This sequence continues until 30 WWE Superstars have entered the ring. The winner is the one left...
