21. Edge (c) vs HHH vs Jeff Hardy vs The Big Show vs The Undertaker vs Vladimir Kozlov (Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship, No Way Out 2009)

Before Elimination Chamber was a yearly Premium Event/PPV, No Way Out was the traditional PPV before WrestleMania. And in 2009 it featured not one, but two Elimination Chamber matches for World titles! I remember this particular match more for the over-arching story line (which continues into the second Chamber match) than the bout itself. And since I’m following the WWE Championship storylines from late 2008 to early 2009, I thought I’d watch it again!

25 years of Triple H in the WWE…how time flies! A few days ago, I put together a list of HHH’s Top 10 Greatest Matches. I’m all in favour of yin/yang, light/dark, good/bad, so it would be remiss of me not to do a list of his worst matches! HHH has been involved in some dire matches. Just look at his WrestleMania main event record; he’s wrestled in the main event seven times…but at least four of those were incredibly boring. In fact, I can only name one time HHH has really pulled out all the stops in a ‘Mania main event: WrestleMania XX. Continue reading


The 30th April 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of HHH’s WWE in-ring debut! Yes, it’s been 25 years since Hunter Hearst Helmsley made his mark on the WWE. Who’d have thought he’d marry the owner’s daughter, become one of the most prominent main eventers in WWE history, and also reign as the company’s COO for a duration! Now, he tends to stay away from the ring, busy being WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development and head of NXT! At the time I started watching wrestling, 1999, the BIG STAR was Stone Cold, closely followed by The Rock…but HHH was on his way to being the BIG HEEL. Continue reading

Review and Results: WWE Survivor Series (22.11.2015)

Roman Reigns vs Alberto Del Rio

Survivor Series got off to a very good start with the hard-fought match. Both Reigns and Del Rio worked their butts off. At first, it seemed like they wouldn’t gel. But after the five minute mark, the match had a great leap in quality. From Del Rio’s reversal of the Superman Punch into the Backstabber, to Reign’s sheer strength in lifting Del Rio with one arm into a Sit-Out Powerbomb, the last ten minutes of the match made me doubt that Reigns would win. Of course, anyone could have predicted a Roman victory, but for the two wrestlers to make me doubt it was a testament to the match. Five more minutes and this match could have been great. Unfortunately, with the time constraints, it was merely very good. Continue reading

Predictions: WWE Hell In A Cell (25.10.15)

hell in a cellMy main prediction for this PPV/Special is…banality!!! The build for WrestleMania was mediocre, but the build-up for Hell In A Cell has been awful, without exception. I’d blame the WWE Network partly for the poor build. Think about it: if you’re a subscriber, WWE already has your money. They don’t need to sell you the Special! However, most of the blame must be placed on the creative team. Even simple storylines seem to be muddled beyond comprehension. However, I’ll still give you my predictions for WWE’s Hell In A Cell…(and by the way, I don’t count the Pre-Show match at all. If it was important enough it would be on the Special! What a waste of Ziggler, Cesaro and Neville…) Continue reading
