WWE Monday Night Raw: August 19th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

It's been a while since I've written a major analysis article. What can I say, the big 4 PPV weekends take a lot out of good ol' "Cowboy" Bob. On our podcast, The Protected Finish, I mentioned once that wrestling is like pizza. It can only be so bad. My podcast partner, Heartbreak Biz, commented … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 19th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 13th, 2019

So now we are in the dregs of wrestling. Hour fucking 12 of the past 4 days after an excellent NXT Takeover, a fantastic Summerslam and a decent Raw. That pattern suggests Smackdown will be bad. Let's hope not. Hear that monster Kevin Owens face pop to start the show? Thanks Shane!Owens on King of … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 13th, 2019

WWE Monday Night Raw: August 12th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

Fresh off a fantastic Summerslam (and an awesome NXT Takover) that saw Seth Rollins go from vanilla loser to at least a Cookies & Cream babyface, let's see if Raw can keep the momentum going. I think I'm starting to pinpoint why Seth Rollins rubs me the wrong way as a babyface. It's because he … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 12th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

WWE Summerslam 2019 “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up

Scattered Pre-Show Notes After yesterday's glorious NXT Takeover, this show has a hard climb ahead of it. However, it can benefit from the luxury of low expectations. As "Cowboy" Bob has made no bones about, he is NOT hyped for this Summerslam at all. Literally not one of the main programs interests him. Maybe the … Continue reading WWE Summerslam 2019 “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up

NXT Takeover: Toronto 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

Takeover time! I usually pride myself on not adhering to the internet hivemind, but the narrative that "Takeover is always better than the main roster PPV" is pretty valid. NXT, whether intentionally or unintentionally, allows these guys to put on the types of epic matches that we simply don't see with the standard WWE formula. … Continue reading NXT Takeover: Toronto 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 6th, 2019

TONIGHT - will we find out who attempted to literally murder Roman Reigns twice? Will they be arrested and face trial? I'm guessing instead of facing any charges via the legal system they will be placed in a wrestling match. Few better ways to kick off the show than with The Queen. Seriously. They should … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Bob Round-Up: August 6th, 2019

WWE Monday Night Raw: August 5th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

Final Raw before Summerslam. I am old enough to remember when a go-home show for a major PPV was MUST-SEE television. Now it's basically "eh, I can get a recap in the video package before the matches." Would be nice if WWE made them seem special again. Let's see how it goes. Also, if you're … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: August 5th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up

One Last (Screw)Job: Vince, HBK, Bret & The Final Act of Kayfabe

Ocean's Eleven is one of the best action/heist movies of the 2000's. With George Clooney and Brad Pitt in their prime, it was funny, fast-paced and entertaining all the way through. The scene where George Clooney explains to Brad Pitt why they should rob 3 casinos for $150 million is one of my favorite film … Continue reading One Last (Screw)Job: Vince, HBK, Bret & The Final Act of Kayfabe

WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Round-Up: July 30th, 2019

Hilarious start with Shane apologizing for not being at Smackdown. "I know this will disappoint a lot of people." Who says WWE isn't self-aware?Would love to know the numbers on a pro wrestler saying that he will definitely NOT be on the show tonight, yet of course show up.Trust me, I love that Kevin Owens … Continue reading WWE Smackdown Live “Cowboy” Round-Up: July 30th, 2019
