Ranking all the PPVs of 2016

There were quite a few good ones here.

Ranking all the PPVs of 2016

Well a new year has come and gone and with it 15 different PPVS and 1 live event. Thats a whole lot to count and rank so for the interest of time I will redirect you to my previous list that I did earlier in the year. I'll only be commenting on the new ones or ones I previously ranked but updated with new information.

My previous list: https://www.theodysseyonline.com/ranking-the-wwe-p...

Number 16: Fastlane (February)

Number 15: WWE Roadblock (March)

Number 14: Payback (May)

Number 13: Battleground (July)

Number 12: Summerslam (August)

This PPV was just a whole heaping of dumb. Sure the match between Seth Rollins and Finn Balor was great, and there was a legit match of the year candidate between AJ Styles and John Cena, but the rest of the card I either didn't care about or ended dumb. 3 meaningless preshow matches, a main event that ends with shoot elbows to the head ending in TKO and Jon Stewart ruins another match two years in a row.

Number 11: Wrestlemania 32 (April).

Number 10: Extreme Rules (May).

Number 9: Clash of Champions (September)

Clash of Champions felt like a show I didn't care about and paid off in some way or another. It was about this time I actually started caring about Roman Reigns after they dropped the "Hes an underdog" by having him brutalize Rusev. Also, Cesaro vs Sheamus is one of the best matches I've seen from either of the two men and it led to us getting the, as a tag team. So that's nice.

Number 8: Roadblock End of the Line (December).

Most of this card sucked especially the Womens iron man match but I was so happy to see Cesaro and Sheamus finally end New Days record breaking reign. That's all there really is to it, I just loved watching the New Day finally stop being champs.

Number 7: Hell In a Cell (October).

The quality of the matches were varied in this PPV. I liked watching Roman and Rusev go at it for the US Belt and I loved watching Chris Jericho interfer in Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens match but other than that I was annoyed at the quality (or lack thereof) in the Womans main event.

Number 6 and 5: No Mercy and TLC (October and December).

I'm lumping these two together because they were both overall good pay-per-views, but both had a match that stood out. For No Mercy it was nice to see Dolph Ziggler have a pay off to putting his career on the line and succeed at getting the intercontinental championship from The Miz. For TLC, Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles put on one of the best TLC matches I've seen in a long time.

Number 4: Money in the Bank (June).

Number 3: Backlash (September).

I got to watch Heath Slater and Rhyno become new tag team champions for Smackdown Live, Becky Lynch become new Womens Champion also for Smackdown Live and AJ styles, Mr TNA. became the WWE World Heavy Weight Champion. That is unbelievable to see in 2016.

Number 2: Royal Rumble (January)

Yeah it got knocked off Number 1 I didn't think it would happen either.

Number 1: Survivor Series (November).

All year I thought I was gonna say that the Royal Rumble match was the best PPV put out by WWE but I was wrong. I loved Survivor Series. All of the matches were entertaining to some degree. I was on the edge of my seat for the Mens 5 on 5 match and the storytelling in the Tag match as well as the Mens match were amazing. Finally I saw one of my favorite wrestlers, Goldberg crush Brock Lesnar in 1:26 seconds of a main event. Truly a spectacle to behold.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
