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
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
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

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
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
Can the build to the least exciting Summerslam in history be saved? Will anyone, including all of those cats, possibly give a shit about Natalya getting another title shot? We find out - NEXT! End of Modern Family going on. Sometimes random clips I see are funny, but you know what always rubbed me the … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: July 29th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
Good ol' "Cowboy" Bob has long been a proponent of the women's revolution in WWE. Sure, it's half-PR bullshit. But "Cowboy" grew up in the Attitude Era. He lived through Torrie Wilson and The Kat title reigns. The Bob routinely watched Raw in a world where Evening Gown matches were a perfectly normal match stipulation. … Continue reading Wrestlemania 35: The Most Important Women’s Match In Wrestling History Gets The Shittiest Finish
Ah, 1992. What a time to be alive. Jump by Kris Kross was taking the nation by storm. Al Pacino was yelling HOO-AH in Scent of a Woman. And a young 9 year old buckaroo named "Cowboy" Bob was glued to the screen to see one of his favorite wrestlers, Bret "The Hitman" Hart defend the Intercontinental Title against The British Bulldog, Davey Boy Smith.
Please allow me, for a moment, to talk of a sport less legitimate than professional wrestling. NFL football. There is a famous playcall that Bill Belichick made in 2009 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots were winning this game handily heading into the 4th quarter, when Peyton Manning hit a rare clutch zone. He drove … Continue reading Defending Vince Russo
