6/30/2014- WWE Money in the Bank results, Red Sox def. Yankees 2 out of 3, Pirates def. Mets 3 out of 4

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I posted here. Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Here we go!


Last night was the Money in the Bank PPV, where it emanated from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Overall, there were eight matches on the card and all of them were on the PPV as the Kickoff show was dedicated to Daniel Bryan's in-ring interview with Michael Cole. Bryan announced that he may need to get another surgery due to arm problems and could be out longer than expected. Here are the results for the main card:

  • The Usos def. The Wyatts to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship
  • Paige def. Naomi to retain the Divas Championship
  • Adam Rose def. Damien Sandow
  • Seth Rollins won the Money in the Bank briefcase in the Money in the Bank ladder match. Participants in this match were Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam, and Jack Swagger
  • Goldust and Stardust (Cody Rhodes) def. Ryback and Curtis Axel
  • Rusev def. Big E
  • Layla def. Summer Rae (with Fandango as special guest referee)
  • John Cena wins the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the Money in the Bank ladder match. Participants in this match were Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, and Kane
Overall, it was a decent PPV. There were too many filler matches that could have been saved for Raw or SmackDown. I know Cena's win was unpopular with the fans, but it could be possible that he is a transition champion holding the title warm for a serious contender.

This past weekend, the Yankees hosted the Boston Red Sox in a 3 game set. Yankees won the 1st game, but lost the remaining two as the Yankees struggled to hit on Saturday and pitching struggled last night. The sad fact I found was that the last time the Yankees won a series on a weekend was back in May against the Pirates (one of those games I was in attendance). Yankees need to find a way to play on a more consistent basis if they want to play October baseball.

After the Mets split the series against the Oakland A's, they went to PNC Park to face the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 4 game set. The Mets lost the series, but avoided a sweep with Saturday's win.

The Yankees host the Tampa Bay Rays tonight in a 3 game set while the Mets are in Atlanta to face the Braves in a 3 game set.

That's all I have to say for now. Have a good week!

6/9/2014- Seth Rollins defects to Evolution, Royals def. Yankees 2 out of 3, SF Giants sweep Mets, more

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Here we go!


As you all know last Monday, 24 hours after The Shield def. Evolution at Payback, the unexpected occurs. Batista would quit Evolution (and the WWE) altogether in the beginning of Raw. At the conclusion of Raw when there is a scheduled match between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton, Seth Rollins turns on The Shield and defects to Evolution.

No explanation was given that week, but there could be one tonight on Raw. Also, there have been reports that Daniel Bryan's rehab will be longer than expected and will not be able to compete at the Money in the Bank PPV. As Stephanie McMahon mentioned last week on Raw, if Bryan isn't able to compete, the title will be vacated and will be the prize for the Money in the Bank ladder match.

I, for one, don't agree with the idea of the title being vacant, but I really hope that Bryan comes back and becomes champion again. If he does not get the championship back, all of the momentum will come to waste. As for Stephanie calling Bryan a "B+" player, he is an A+ player all the way. There is a reason why he's one of the best wrestlers in the industry. Steph, on the other hand is a D+ player.

The Yankees started their road trip with a 4 game set against the Kansas City Royals. The Yankees won game 1, but lost the remaining 2 games. The Yankees will conclude the series tonight against KC before heading to Seattle to face the Mariners. Mets, on the other hand were in San Francisco to face the Giants and were swept in all 3 games, despite having early leads.

The Mets will be back home this Tuesday with a home stand against the Milwaukee Brewers in a 3 game set.

UPDATE: Tonight's Yankees/Royals game has been postponed due to incliment weather. No makeup date has been announced yet. 

I know I don't talk about hockey a lot, but tonight is Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings have won the first 2 games, both in OT at the Staples Center. Games 3 and 4 are in Madison Square Garden and Rangers are hoping to end the miracle rallies the Kings are having.

That's all I have to say for now. Have a good week!

6/2/2014- WWE Payback results, Twins def. Yankees 2 out of 3, Mets to conclude series against Phillies

Hello everyone! Let's cut to the chase shall we? Here we go!


Last night was the WWE PPV Payback where it emanated from Rosemont, Illinois and have aired on the WWE Network and PPV. Here are the results of the show:


  • El Torito def. Hornswoggle in a Mask vs. Hair match. 
  • Sheamus def. Cesaro to retain the United States Championship
  • Ryback and Curtis Axel def. Cody Rhodes and Goldust in a tag match
  • Rusev def. Big E
  • Bo Dallas vs. Kofi Kingston ended in a no-contest after Kane interfered
  • Bad News Barrett def. Rob Van Dam to retain the Intercontinental Championship
  • John Cena def. Bray Wyatt in a Last Man Standing match
  • Paige def. Alicia Fox to retain the Divas Championship
  • The Shield def. Evolution in a 6-man elimination tag match
The WWE World Heavyweight title was not defended due to Bryan's injury, but did remain a focal point in the show. Stephanie threatened to fire Brie Bella if Bryan did not surrender the title. The good news is that Bryan is still the champion because Brie quit (kayfabe) from the WWE and slapped Steph in the face. It was reported that there was some minor incident from Steph, but that is all speculation right now.

This past weekend, the Yankees hosted the Minnesota Twins in a 3 game set. The Yankees lost the first game, won the second game, and completely collapsed on the third as Robertson blew a massive save.

Meanwhile for the Mets, they have won 3 out of 4 games in Philadelphia and are currently concluding the series tonight in hopes of making it 4 out of 5.  After tonight, the Mets go to Chi-town to face the Cubs in a 3 game set.

Yankees are currently making up the Mariners game that was rained out in April tonight. After that, the Yankees host the Oakland Athletics in a 3 game set.

That's all I have to say for now. Enjoy your week!
