‘WWE: True Giants’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

You don’t have to be a fan of WWE for too long before you notice that they tend to like their superstars to be larger than life.  Some of them aren’t just large in attitude but also have the appearance of being huge monsters, often towering over other superstars and using their height and strength […]

by Chris Cummings

What does everybody want? Head to the nearest man cave, give your boss a Stone Cold salute and spend the next six hours watching The Attitude Era Vol.2, the hottest set to be released since Sable’s handprint bikini. If you are old enough to order a Steve-Weiser, “Hello ladies” was your pick up line in […]

‘WWE: Macho Man – The Randy Savage Story’ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

When I first began watching professional wrestling, some 22 years ago in 1992, the one wrestler who made me sit up and take notice was “Macho Man” Randy Savage. My first wrestling event I ever saw features Savage and Ric Flair wrestling for the WWF Championship in Indiana at WrestleMania 8. Randy Savage has been […]

‘WWE: Night of Champions 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

Night of Champions is a pay per view concept that should, really, make it one of the biggest WWE shows of the year. A show where, on paper, every WWE championship is defended, is something that should be promoted as a huge deal, but sadly this didn’t feel so big. The lead up to the […]

‘Summerslam 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

It has been a trying time for WWE recently. Since the launch of the WWE Network a lot has happened. Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Title, got injured and was forced to forfeit the belt. Cena won the belt soon afterwards. The Shield split up, Roman Reigns began his ascension to the top of […]

‘WWE: The Best of Sting’ Blu-ray Review

by Phil Wheat

It’s been quite a while since I’ve personally reviewed a WWE Home Video release – we have some great guys here on Nerdly that are more knowledgeable and are certainly bigger fans of wrestling than I. But when said home video release involves one of my all-time favourite wrestlers, Sting, there was no way I […]

‘WWE Battleground 2014′ DVD Review

by Nicky Johnson

As one of WWE’s B pay per views, you can’t really set expectations too high. Fortunately, Battleground delivered a mostly okay PPV, with some pretty awesome high points and equally disappointing lost points and bad booking. We start the main card with the Usos successfully defending their titles in a pretty good 2 out of […]

‘WWE Money in the Bank 2014′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

One of the more interesting of WWE’s annual b-shows, Money in the Bank is the night of the year where a younger talent has the chance to grab the contract that sets them up for a built-in storyline and eventual chance at winning the WWE World Title. Here, there are two ladder matches, one for […]

‘WWE Brothers of Destruction’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

As a horror fan I’ve always liked the wrestlers with the darker sides.  The Undertaker and Kane are two wrestlers who have had a certain mystique and managed to get away with the more silly story lines featuring the supernatural.  For the most part though their destructive force has been more of an importance to […]

‘WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

After getting past the fact that WWE: OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents in WCW History is a title that is confusing (should this not be 51-100 maybe?), looking back at the best and worst of WCW is always fun.  There are moments that I’m sure some wrestlers would love to forget but others that […]

‘WWE Payback 2014′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

It may be a little boring to say this, but I find that I like WWE more when they get down to the business of actual wrestling.  I’d argue that this is what should be happening on a pay-per-view anyway and yes the storyline has to be present of course but the actual fighting in […]

‘WWE: Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman’ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

Now, I have been a “Paul Heyman Guy” or rather a “Paul Heyman Fan” since the nineties when I first discovered Extreme Championship Wrestling and discovered that the man who had previously worked as a manager in WCW, Paul E. Dangerously, was now booking for ECW and later, the owner. I was excited when I […]

WWE Network – Five Months In, let’s take a look.

by Chris Cummings

The WWE launched its much-spoken of, much-publicized and much-advertised by its announcers on television every single week, Network at the end of February and now we are just over five months on from the launch, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the Network now that the issues have been […]

The WWE Main Roster Report: Part 5 – The Rest

by Chris Cummings
