Clash of Champions and the Problem with Raw

Raw has a tendency to fall a bit flat. On the weekly TV show, I tend to put that down to its mammoth runtime which has both the crowd in the arena and those sitting at home feeling exhausted by the time the main event comes around. It’s just too much wrestling to watch every week, especially when a lot of it is filler. However, on Sunday night that feeling transferred over to Clash of Champions, despite it being a show that had none of that filler.

SummerSlam

Six hours. That’s how long you would have to spend in front of your TV if you wanted to watch SummerSlam from start to finish. The biggest party of the summer long outstayed it’s welcome, and WWE certainly didn’t help it.

Extreme Rules Preview

A mere handful of weeks after WWE Payback we are back with the next PPV/whatever it is you call a show that is mainly watched via the Network. Special show? Who knows. Either way, there is a sense of deja vu about this. In many ways, this is just a rehash of what we got at Payback and even as someone who enjoyed that show, it all feels a bit lazy.

As usual, the card has already been pored over in nearly every wrestling related publication on the go and discussion of it has almost got boring. However! That won’t stop me throwing my two pence into the well and if you haven’t had enough of the WrestleMania 32 chat: here are my thoughts.

Roadblock

In an unusual move, WWE has decided to hold a live Network special during the build-up to WrestleMania. It means that this Saturday, we have Roadblock, an almost mini-PPV that has thrown up a few interesting matches. While there is a case to be made that having to promote another event during the Road to WrestleMania is a mistake, it is happening now, and as I always do, I feel like I have to give my thoughts on what will be occurring.

TLC

Another PPV and another chance for me to continue my positive attitude towards the WWE.  Thankfully, for both myself and the WWE, the talent have once again done their job well and it won’t be that hard.  I have to be honest and say I haven’t seen last night’s Raw, although I know what happened, so that shan’t be playing to big a part in this.  With that in mind, what was good about TLC?
