January 7, 2016
Laredo, TX
Laredo Energy Arena

The current WWE champions are as follows:
WWE World Heavyweight Champion: Roman Reigns (12/14/2015)
WWE Intercontinental Champion: Dean Ambrose (12/13/2015)
WWE United States Champion: Alberto Del Rio (10/25/2015)
WWE Tag Team Champions: The New Day (8/23/2015)
WWE Divas Champion: Charlotte (9/20/2015)

I believe the last WWE PPV I watched from start to finish was Night of Champions. I think I left the house I was at in the middle of watching Hell in a Cell because it was so boring. I am not the hipster fan who enjoys NXT as much as other people. I can’t even remember the last time I sat down and watched an episode of RAW, so my WWE watching in the latter half of 2015 has been sparse to say the least. But when I read that Mauro Ranallo was joining WWE and would be the PBP commentator on Smackdown, my interest was piqued. I absolutely love GOOD wrestling commentators. When they put over the right things, when they feel like a friend sitting next to you, when they know how to show emotion and not still sound like a whiny little douche (I’m looking at you Michael Cole), when they do everything possible to assist you in suspending your disbelief. That’s what I love. Because even when wrestling is BAD or just not completely doing it for you, a good commentator can make it feel not so bad.
