Raw returns to MSG tonight for the first time in forever. Good ol' "Cowboy" is NOT there, mainly due to laziness. Raw is usually a fucking SLOG to sit through live. Would be more than happy for WWE to make me greatly regret staying home. I instantly regret it as Raw in MSG starts off … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: September 9th, 2019 “Cowboy” Round-Up
After an underwhelming-to-say-the-least AEW All Out, I wanted to add a few thoughts on NXT Takeover: Cardiff. It was a good show. Certainly better than AEW's show, which is fairly alarming, which I'll get into in a moment. NXT Takeover: Cardiff was good, but let's not get carried away. Nothing was bad, the tag match … Continue reading WWE Monday Night Raw: September 2nd, 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
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
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
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
Tonight is the "Raw Reunion", which is an obvious and desperate attempt to get ratings by bringing back characters more compelling than Kofi's 20 minute weekly lecture telling us "I won the belt at Wrestlemania and damn life is crazy, man, wow."
We are LIVE from Philadelphia, PA, where the rabid fans of the city that gave birth to hardcore wrestling in ECW is sure to be HYPED for the bloodless, anti-septic X-Tr3mE inter-gender and handicap matches!
So we have INTER-GENDER ACTION on tap, which is so X-TR3ME that it feels like WWE Extreme Rules, live this Sunday at 7:00 ET exclusively on the WWE Network has come early! Notes and thoughts from "Cowboy" Bob as he watches...
