I’ve been a wrestling fan for 20 years. Through all the ups and downs of the business, I tune in every Monday in hopes of being entertained for three hours. This year I will finally get to go to Wrestlemania. This is the peak for any wrestling fan. This is the Super Bowl of wrestling, the biggest sports entertainment event of the years. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited. But right now I’m only “experience excited.” I’m excited just to be at Wrestlemania. To go to all the fan events, to be surrounded by wrestling fans, and to witness the Wrestlemania spectacle.
I’d like to see a good show as well.
So with Elimination Chamber out of the way and the Road To Wrestlemania having officially started, every week I’m going to update my excitement level on the matches that are taking place at Wrestlemania based on how well WWE does selling me on things.
Larry Csonka joins the Man Cave to preview this Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber event. We’ll rundown all the matches, discuss the booking, and give our picks. Plus, we’ll talk about the Dish Network and WWE dispute, the WWE/NBC Universal TV rights, the WWE Network, and potential plans for Wrestlemania.
Samer Kadi, Steve Cook, and Larry Csonka join the Man Cave to talk about everything and nothing. Samer will discover that he’s in love with Eva Marie and Tori Black, we’ll discuss the Thiago Silva situation and make MMA Roasted jokes, and we’ll all tell random stories. Things get pretty awkward by the end.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave for what was supposed to be our UFC 169 preview. Instead, we delayed talking about the event for 15 minutes and then 30 minutes and then over an hour as we talked about Martin Lawrence movies, NBA 2K14, Michael Jordan, The Grammys, and much more. Don’t worry, our UFC 169 preview is coming later this week.
Larry Csonka joins the Man Cave to preview this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble. We’ll talk about the lame job WWE has done building the show, but why it should still be a good event, plus give our thoughts on all the matches and predict the winners. And I’ll recap my weekend trip to Casa De Csonka.
Steve Cook joins the Man Cave to talk about the WWE backstage drama between Michelle Beadle, CM Punk, and AJ Lee. Plus we’ll review season 1 of Total Divas, discussing all the characters and the 100 storylines they were involved in.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to preview UFC on FOX 9. We’ll talk about “Mr. FOX” Demetrious Johnson defending his title once again on network TV, breakdown his fight against Joseph Benavidez, and preview the rest of the card, which is still solid despite some big injuries. We’ll also spend the first 30 minutes talking about the history of the WWF European title, which of course spins into a bunch of different wrestling tangents.
Larry Csonka joins the Man Cave to look at this Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series event. We’ll discuss all the matches, talk about the booking leading up to the show, possible fallout, and give our predictions. Plus we’ll look at the bigger picture in WWE and talk about their inability to create new stars over the years.
Steve Cook joins the Man Cave to discuss the latest in sports. We’ll briefly preview the World Series before talking about the Cicinnati Reds new manager. Then we’ll preview the NBA season and give our championship predictions, talk about Seth Jones vs. Nathan MacKinnon, and preview WWE Hell in a Cell while also looking back at TNA Bound for Glory.
