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
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
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

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!
Looks like the Kevin Owens face turn is finally a full-go, which is long overdue. Dude is an awful, awful heel. The comedic timing is too on point to fight how great of a babyface he can be. Guy can be the modern day Dusty Rhodes if they play it right.
They are still treating Lashley/Strowman like it was the Trail of Tears. Kind of makes it a little lamer the more they hype it up like that. But at least they are trying to make it a thing.
Notes as good ol' "Cowboy" watches WWE Stomping Grounds. Please note that I rate all matches with "Bobs". They are like stars, but just very, uniquely different. PRE-SHOW Tony Nese (C) vs Drew Gulak vs Akira Tozawa Full disclosure, I don't watch 205 Live, so while I'm familiar with all 3 wrestlers, this is a … Continue reading WWE Stomping Grounds: “Cowboy” Round-up
In 2001, at Wrestlemania X-7 (totally more edgy than that lame number "17"), Stone Cold Steve Austin nearly made Jim Ross have a brain aneurysm by "SHAKING HANDS WITH THE DEVIL HIMSELF!!!", Vince McMahon. His hated rival, of course.
