The Steel Cage
Newsday tag team champs Alfonso Castillo and Josh Stewart slam you with pro wrestling news and insights.
BIG SHOW, SANTINO MARELLA, VLADIMIR KOZLOV VS. THE CORRE
Alfonso: This one has all the makings of an opening match—if it doesn’t go on as the dark match. It’s amazing to think that, just a few months ago, Kane, Big Show and Wade Barrett were all bona fide main eventers. This is a throw-away bout with little reason to exist other than to give these guys a Mania pay...Read more »
It’s the “go-home” episode of “Monday Night Raw” in Chicago and here are the results and analysis for some of the bigger parts of the night.
The first segment to open up Raw was CM Punk sitting in the ring gloating about what he did to Randy Orton last week. It was a perfect segment as the Chicago crowd was very hot mainly because it was Punk’s hometown....Read more »

Triple H’s promo this past week on Raw did a good job hyping up his match with the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Yet, I found some parts of his promo that went too far and not in a good way.
Triple H said he and the Undertaker were the last of a generation. That is with out a doubt true. Both guys are the longest running stars currently in the company. Triple H did a great job putting...Read more »

After watching Shawn Michaels accept the Slammy award for WWE Moment of the Year this past Monday night on Raw I, like many, thought about his chances of appearing at Wrestlemania in 2011.
I wouldn’t be doing my blogging duty if I didn’t pollute the heads of the Steel Cage readers with an HBK appearance at Wrestlemania. “Tis the season for list, so why not combine the two...Read more »

John Cena is going to join the Nexus? How the does the WWE want me to believe that? Last night on Raw, Cena was supposed to face Wade Barrett. Instead, Barrett stood on top the announcer’s table and played type role of general manager. If Cena defeated the other members of Nexus he would then face Barrett.
Cena ran the gauntlet successfully pinning Health Slater, Michael Tarver, and David...Read more »
On a night all about championships, four titles changed hands at Night of Champions. The biggest of all the title changes came when the Viper, Randy Orton, once again recaptured the WWE Title.
Six-pack challenge for the WWE Title: Randy Orton defeated, Sheamus, Chris Jericho, John Cena, Edge, and Wade Barrett
The match itself was okay, nothing to go crazy about it that’s worth...Read more »
