‘Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions: The Big Show’ Review (WWE Network Original)

by Chris Cummings

So, so far from Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Session series on WWE Network, we’ve seen The Texas Rattlesnake sit down and talk with The Undertaker, Kane and Goldberg, so it wasn’t a surprise to see another long serving veteran from WWE step up next, with none other than Paul “The Big Show” Wight.

WWE Network Original Review: The Bump (Jan 29th 2020)

by Chris Cummings

The Bump is a solid show that has only grown since it began a few months back. The studio chat-show has found its feet and become a really enjoyable way for WWE to make announcements, interview talent and deliver news to WWE fans. The hosts, lead by Kayla Braxton, have a nice rapport, and though […]

The Broken Skull Sessions began with Steve Austin talking to The Undertaker. The second episode saw Austin talk with Bill Goldberg, and now, on the third episode, we see The Texas Rattlesnake sit down and talk wrestling, politics and life with “The Big Red Machine” Kane.

‘Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions: Goldberg’ Review (WWE Network Original)

by Chris Cummings

After The Undertaker episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions it was going to take a big name to follow that, and, for me, they didn’t follow it. I guess my thoughts on that come from the fact that I’ve never been a Goldberg fan. I watched WWF back when WCW was running and Goldberg […]

‘Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions: The Undertaker’ Review (WWE Network Original)

Well, this was a really nice surprise when it was announced. Steve Austin, back on the WWE Network with an interview show much-like his video podcast from a couple of years ago. The first guest? The Undertaker. We haven’t seen many (at all) our of character interviews with Mark Callaway,, so of course this was […]

WWE Network Original Reviews: Table For Three 5×12 – Dinner of Domination

by Chris Cummings

The Table for Three format is one that WWE seem to be keeping going, and I like it, although I always feel like they should be longer. The three people chosen to chat for twenty minutes or so hardly get the conversation going before the show ends. I think this could easily be an hour […]

WWE Network Original Reviews: Table For Three 5×09 – Appetite for APA

by Chris Cummings

Table For Three is back again, with a new episode on the WWE Network. I like this show but like I’ve said before, it’s not really long enough. This time we sit down with JBL, Ron Simmons and Teddy Long, three guys who have a long friendship in wrestling. We all know about the Simmons […]

WWE Network Original: ‘The Bump S01E04’ Review

by Chris Cummings

WWE’s The Bump hits its fourth episode this week, and I, for one, am happy about that. So far the plug hasn’t been pulled on this unique and breath-of-fresh-air concept show from WWE. This week, like each week so far, we witness the “Bump Crew” talk about the week in WWE while also welcoming a […]

WWE Network Original: ‘The Bump S01E03’ Review

by Chris Cummings

Another week, another episode of The Bump. I’ve reviewed the first two episodes of this show so far and been openly a fan of what they’re doing, and that doesn’t change here either. With this week’s episode, the crew, led by Kayla Braxton, return with another live guest and two guests who call in and […]

If you haven’t watched an episode of WWE Ride Along, the concept is as simple as they come. A selection of WWE performers are filmed while they travel from city to city on various legs of their year-round live event tour. It’s been going on for a while now and seems to be an inexpensive […]

For those who are unaware, Tommaso Ciampa was the NXT Champion as 2019 began, a reigning, defending champion who held onto his title belt (a belt he names Goldie) no matter what. As WrestleMania season rolled on, Ciampa realised he needed to get neck surgery. In March of this year, with reluctancy and sadness in […]

WWE Network Original: ‘The Bump S01E01’ Review

I’ve been clamouring for a talk-show style show in WWE for some time. A show like a late-night chat program where wrestlers are interviewed and the current product is discussed in a playfully casual manner. Finally, we’ve got just that.

WWE Untold is a WWE Network original series that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying since it began. Discussing topics such as “The Failed Relaunch of WCW”, “The Second Coming of ECW”, “How Eddie Guerrero Became a SmackDown Legend” and more, it delves into these subjects in a fun snapshot manner and talks, using clips, backstage footage […]
