The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 6/17/14: Progression of the B- (and C- and D-) Plots

Last week I missed writing the column, because I was very busy handling a bunch of stuff. I had to deal with a big rush of additional responsibilities and preparations that basically all closed up a few days ago, so I finally got the time to sit down and write this stuff. My break was pretty conveniently timed, too, because last week WWE really sucked, and this week it fucking ruled. Let's get into a bit of that, shall we?

The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 6/3/14: The Measure of Success

It might just be the way I see it, but it seemed like there wasn't a lot to go over with this episode of Main Event. While there was a fair amount of wrestling, there were only two different matches, and it almost seemed like there was even more time than usual dedicated to airing commercials and Raw recaps. And one of the matches wasn't even all that good. Ah well, better luck next time. Read after the break for more.

The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 5/27/14: Thicker Than Blood

This week's episode of Main Event was very nearly straight Worsts all the way through, so it was tough to build up the motivation to get this out. The only reason I'm posting it now and not, um, Tuesday, two hours before next week's Main Event, is because I wanted to get it out before Payback tonight. Anyhow, more after the break.

The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 5/6/14: This Is My Message

Ain't that a nice, exploitable image?

This post is wayyyy late, but if you watched this episode, you probably wouldn't blame me. It's frequently disheartening and ends on an absolute garbage of a promo. But hey, if you want to read me bitch about something that I supposedly enjoy watching and talking about, then move along past the break.

The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 4/22/14: The Battle Of The Century

Well, seems like I'm a masochist, so the nightmare ain't over yet. Best and Worst of Main Event for the second straight week features the worst thing since Emma's Cobra. So the worst thing in half a week. Okay. Still, it's pretty awful.

The Best and Worst of WWE Main Event 4/15/14: What the Hell Am I Doing

Some explanation is in order for what this whole thing is. Background information: there is a guy named Brandon Stroud who regularly does a weekly write-up called The Best and Worst of Raw, in which he breaks down the show segment by segment and discusses it in terms of what he did and didn't like. It's far more entertaining than you would expect from the synopsis alone, and it helps that Brandon actually sounds like a person with individual opinions which are subject to change, rather than 95% of your typical pro wrestling writers out there on the Internurt. The articles have grown quite popular over the years, and the site that hosts them has expanded to the Best and Worst of TNA Impact, SmackDown!, and NXT (also written by Stroud). However, NOBODY HAS STEPPED UP TO REVIEW WWE'S NON-DEVELOPMENTAL C-SHOW!

Let's get something straight here though - I am not writing this in the hopes of getting picked up by that site. I'm not even going to attempt it, because I don't have faith in myself to even write more than one of these things. I already have plenty of other stuff that I like to do with my free time, it just so happened that on this particular week I happened to be inclined to writing this up. And if this should turn out to be the only time I ever write for this blog, THEN OH NO I CREATED A FREE BLOG FOR NOTHING. Anyway, let's get this thing started.
