WWE, 2012 Ok, took me a few weeks to make a hard decision: I’ve decided that going back and reviewing all the Saturday Morning Slams that I missed back before we relaunched the site is a fool’s errand.  It ain’t gonna happen.  The reasons are myriad, but honestly, it’s primarily due to the fact that every report I did was Continue Reading...

“Good morning, WWE Universe!  And welcome to Saturday Morning Slam!  It’s Back to School season and we’re taking the WWE Superstars back to school with you!” Ok, I will be honest.  I was ready to pull the plug on this whole “review all the old back episodes” endeavor, but then I hear that the show is more or less officially Continue Reading...

  “Good morning WWE Universe!  And welcome to a very special signature edition of Saturday Morning Slam!” You know, generally you hear something like that and you think it’s just some WWE-speak gibberish.  Not so on this show.  No, when they say “signature”, they mean it LITERALLY, as we’re going to get an in-depth look at the autographs of the Continue Reading...

  It’s been too long. It’s been too long since I’ve seen a new edition of Saturday Morning Slam, and it’s been too long since I’ve written anything of substance for this here site.  Now just so no one thinks that I am just some lazy slug, allow me to explain that I’ve been spending the last few months working Continue Reading...

  So the rumor going around is that this show may be on the endangered species list, either being done until the fall or done until the end of time.  This saddens me greatly of course, but fear not!  My plan if the show is done for is to go back and review ALL previous SMS that I’ve not reviewed Continue Reading...

  “Good morning, WWE Universe!  Welcome to Saturday Morning Slam.  In our opening contest, Jey Uso will be taking on Darren Young.” Really, that’s how this show started.  Even the announcer didn’t sound excited about this show.  Gotta admit, that’s kinda a far cry from the last few weeks where we’ve been promised CHANGES and NEW ERAS and all the Continue Reading...

  Before I get into the SMS report this morning, wanted to apologize for the report not going out as quickly as it usually does.  This was due to, well, the entire Reynolds clan (me, Mrs. Deal, RD Jr.) being shot in the face with substances of various colors on this past Saturday morning in the form of a 5K Continue Reading...

  Before we get started, I want to make note that in the last 3 days I’ve had two folks who are not hardcore wrestling fans tell me that they watch this show.  We’re starting a revolution here, people!  One is my old buddy Joe Cady, who used to do ring announcing at PWI events, and the other is RD Continue Reading...

  “Good morning WWE Universe!  Following a fantastic show two weeks ago and an absolutely horrible one last week, we brace for what may follow.  Will it be awful…or awful good?” So sez our erstwhile announcer to start off the show. Ok not really, just seeing if anyone was paying attention. And SPEAKING OF…paying attention, a quick note that RD Continue Reading...

  After a few iffy weeks, last week’s Saturday Morning Slam, wherein Mick Foley was presented as the new General Manager, was one of the best eps in months. Will this week follow that pattern?     Let’s just say the preview on my DVR isn’t filling me with hope. Our opening contest is brought to us by “the coolest Continue Reading...

  “Last week, chaos erupted on Saturday Morning Slam!” exclaims our now-weekly over the top, deep-voiced, ever more panic-stricken narrator.  “But today, an announcement will be made.  Will it end the pandemonium, or will mayhem be unleashed?” As he finishes this sentence, we get this visual: WILL CARTWHEELING MAYHEM TAKE OVER OUR FAVORITE SHOW??? ONE WAY TO FIND OUT!   Continue Reading...

  “Chaos has run amuck…the WWE roster is in disarray…alliances forged…allegiances questioned…who can you trust?  These are dark and turbulent times…will a leader rise? The very FATE of Saturday Morning Slam hangs in the balance!” Seriously, that’s how the show started this week.   Oh, and it wasn’t the usual jovial morning narrator, unless he scored Ole Anderson’s Black Scorpion voice Continue Reading...

  So the hot rumor going around is that we’re going to get a General Manager on this here progrem, which is something that this show should decidedly should NOT have for two reasons: 1) the whole GM thing is completely played out (has there ever been one better than Vince in his initial run?) and 2) the great thing Continue Reading...

  With the last few weeks of this show not being the fun gooffest it once was, I pondered going back into the archives and reviewing an older show.  That was until the narrator told me that this week was going to be, and I quote, “exhilarating.” EXHILARATING!

  Ok, it’s February 9 so the big question I had going into this week was whether we’d get our Valentine’s Day chicanery this week or next.  SPOILER ALERT:  It will be next week.  At least I sure hope so.  If this show has taught me anything, it’s that WWE G-rated holiday celebrations absolutely rock. With that out of the Continue Reading...

  Good morning, WrestleCrap Universe!  Welcome to another exciting, mind-blowing edition of Saturday Morning Slam! Now mind you, I don’t quite believe that, but reciting the SMS Narrator’s opening is an easy way to start the column, so that’s what you get.  Oh, and he said “WWE”, not “WrestleCrap”.  I’ll expect more from him next week.   Our opening contest Continue Reading...

Oh yeah, time for my favorite 30 minutes of the week (that have anything at all to do with wrestling): SATURDAY MORNING SLAM! As I recall, last week was an acceptable show, but it was lacking a bit in the goofball department which I’ve come to expect from this show.  Here’s hoping that we get some of that this week.

It may shock some of you to know that I, RD Reynolds, have never written recurring wrestling show reports in my life.  I mean, sure, I’ve inducted several shows before on the site, but not once have I filed weekly recaps or anything like that.  But that’s all changing now, courtesy of the show that has helped me rekindle my Continue Reading...
