Another week, another crap episode of Raw. Now, I will say that there were three segments and one match that were actually really great, but three hours cannot rest on three segment and a main event. There's so much wrong with Raw these days that only get worse as we get closer to WrestleMania, and that's a really bad thing. I wish I was excited for WrestleMania, but the way things are falling, I'm worried that this will be the worst WrestleMania yet, but only time will tell. Speaking of time, let's jump into this Raw and enjoy the good […]

As many of you saw in Kendra's post yesterday, The Rock came back out to the ring after RAW went off the air and proceeded to make a phone call to CM Punk. The off-air segment also featured some filming for the "Fighting With My Family" movie and included a fake AJ Lee and Paige. The big takeaway from this now is the reaction from WWE officials regarding Rock's decision to call CM Punk in the middle of the ring. Apparently, no one was aware that he was going to do that and Rock had just decided to do it […]

It was mentioned during an in-ring promo on last week's Smackdown that Naomi suffered a minor injury during her title match with Alexa Bliss at Elimination Chamber. Because of that, Bliss postponed her title rematch until tonight but the question now is whether that match will be able to take place or not. It may be a similar situation to AJ Styles' minor injury a month or so ago when his foot was in a cast and if that's the case, Naomi may have to stay off it until a couple of weeks yet. Make sure to tune in tonight […]

After WWE Raw went off the air The Rock hit the ring again and acted like he was trying to FaceTime CM Punk. There were questions about the reality of it all. Then a fake AJ Lee and a fake Paige hit the ring. Fans reading all this online thought that The Rock was actually talking to Punk from a WWE ring and that AJ was there live, but as pictures and videos started to trickle out it was obvious that it was not actually AJ and Paige in the ring together. This is all part of The Rock's new […]

Ryback went off on a tangent/rant (no big surprise there) on a recent episode of his podcast when he tore into Vince McMahon for not supporting Tyson Kidd for the rest of his life following his career-ending injury during a match with Samoa Joe. Ryback got pretty aggravated and profane when he said: “WWE should make sure – 100% – that not only is he taken care of for the rest of his life, they should bend over backward time and time again for him. This guy loved wrestling and what they took away from him – and by the […]

On this past week's edition of WWE Main Event, R-Truth served as one of the commentators at the booth. Some of these B-shows are known for having wrestlers fill in at the booth from time to time but R-Truth seems to really be winding down in terms of his wrestling career at 45 years old so it may just be time for him to take on a role like that. Perhaps they are grooming him for that position. FREE WRESTLING NEWS WORLD APP IS BACK! - App Store | Google Play
