Here’s why: 10.   WWE will want to reach 20-0: It’s a nice, round number—the kind that would look great on a T-shirt or DVD cover. It would...

It’s a testament to the storytelling abilities of Triple-H, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels that there is some doubt as to how this match will end. To be sure, there would be few WrestleMania moments that would be bigger than Triple-H pinning the Undertaker’s shoulders to the mat and getting...

A photo of the WrestleMania 28 set at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens was leaked online yesterday. Plam trees are visible by the entrance ramp and the WWE will once again use a canopy over the ring in case Mother Nature doesn't cooperate.

Under the canopy...

One of the biggest debates among fans the week of Wrestlemania is the match order for the pay per view.

To many fans, the pecking order of matches is very important as it symbolizes importance as the show makes its way toward the main event. Yet, a Wrestlemania card is not always booked from least important to most important match. If that was the case, then why was the Women’s Title at Wrestlemania...

The WWE had one last chance to promote Wrestlemania on their flagship television show last night. Raw was held in Atlanta -- the host city of last year’s Wrestlemania -- at the Philips Arena where just about a year ago the “once in a lifetime match” was made between The Rock and John Cena.

Raw had that “big-time” atmosphere last night just six days before Wrestlemania 28. All night video segments...

Last night’s Raw in Philadelphia featured more of the same: lots of talking and very little action between the stars who make up the three biggest feuds going into Wrestlemania.

It’s evident that The Rock and John Cena are talking circles at this point. The same could be said with Undertaker and Triple H, while the CM Punk-Chris Jericho angle continues to get deeply personal. Let’s start there.

CM...

Triple H sent a message to the Undertaker that "The Streak" is over come Wrestlemania 28.

We had Josh Stewart at the event yesterday and you can read his review of the show by clicking...

 We’re three weeks away from the biggest wrestling show of the year, WrestleMania XVIII. Time for me to start talking about the show. Here’s some thoughts from last night’s build up to the event on Raw:

 . Never have world title meant less at WrestleMania than this year. C.M. Punk may be the hottest star WWE has created in ages, and has a pretty long WWE championship reign going....

Last night’s Raw was built around the “John Cena Rap vs. The Rock Concert” as the two Wrestlemania opponents squared off in a battle of musical talents. The overall motif of the show made sense as Raw was in Cleveland, the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I felt Raw was strong but it fell flat compared to the last few weeks, which haven been excellent. The WWE always revs up the product...
