Wrestlemania 34 You Pick'em: Results- Kimberly A. Rhoades- Raleigh NC

This year we had a record 18 submissions to the Wrestlemania 34 You Pick'em! The results are in and man has it taken me all day to figure out the winner, haha! If you tied with someone, please know that your ranking is based off of creativity with name and/or finisher! No one guessed the correct number of Super Kicks (several of us were very very close) which was worth 34 points. If you see any mistakes (I mean, I am human) please let me know WITH PROOF and I will adjust accordingly, if I feel up to it! GOOD LUCK!

Wrestlemania Week '18 Recaps- Wrestlemania 12 Hollywood Backlot Brawl- Justin Rhoades - Kimberly Rhoades- Raleigh NC

This is one of those matches that you know you have seen, but you forgot how it got to that point. Our reaction to this match is just priceless... Just watch and enjoy along with us! This is Wrestlemania 12, we start with the brawl in the backlot and when they drive off we fast forward a bit (about an hour) til they are in the ring and we just let Goldust and Rowdy Roddy take us on a journey!

Wrestlemania Week '18 Recaps- Wrestlemania 29 Undertaker v CM Punk- Justin Rhoades and Kimberly Rhoades- Raleigh NC

Wrestlemania 29 was pretty awesome! Why not go back and explore one of WWE's top 20 Wrestlemania Matches of all time as a part of Wrestlemania Week!? In this video, which is the last one we recorded for the day, Kim is somewhere between 5-7 mimosas deep, we are Heel Kimbo and Louis Courage and we are joined by Bruce Springsteen Rhoades! As you can probably guess there are plenty of laughs to be had in this one! If you watch carefully you can see Kimbo put him in the "GTS"... how fitting!

WWE Wrestlemania 34 Card Preview and Predictions- Bryce Pauley- New Orleans, LA

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Somehow it didn’t seem right to not start off with that. Also, Happy Rusev Day!

Now that I’ve gotten that out the way, I want to say congratulations to WWE for putting together a good card, despite some poor booking decisions made throughout the year, for their biggest show of the year. I really had some serious doubts based off the last few pay per views. But overall, from top to bottom, the show should be amazing even if it seems to drag on. If you didn’t realize it, the show last year was over 5 hours, not including the preshow.  I would expect more of the same this year, so pace yourself and your emotions.

2018 WWE Royal Rumble Card Matchups- Bryce Pauley- Philadelphia PA

Initially looking at the Royal Rumble 2018 card, it seems a bit repetitive. Raw and Smackdown tag title matches, Men and Women’s Royal Rumble matches and a WWE and Universal title match involving 3 participants. But with that being said, I do think the Royal Rumble matches have potential to be some of the greatest rumble matches in history, simply because WWE did absolutely nothing to build them. For the last month, nobody has had a qualifying match or a match to determine their entry number. In years past, there has always been a huge focus on the number 1, 27 and 30 spots in the rumble. This year, that hasn’t been the case at all. This is the first time that I can remember a Royal Rumble that hasn’t mentioned anything about the order of entry. This leaves this year’s match with so much suspense and intrigue as to who is coming out next, who has that “magic” number and who could enter the match. This really could turn into one of the greatest Royal Rumbles in WWE history.

Season Finale - NFL Week 17 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Todd Gurley is the most important piece in the NFL's highest scoring offense and is a nightmare week to week to gameplan against. He leads the league in yards from scrimmage and TD's. This seems like a no brainer MVP and quite a turnaround story from just a year ago. The culture change that happened with the hiring of Sean McVay has been remarkable, it just goes to show with several top draft picks and an aggressive approach on both offense and defense, a bottom tier team can bounce back fairly quickly. All it takes is some vision, execution, and belief/buy-in from the players. Congrats to the Rams on their 2017 season.

In The Home Stretch - NFL Week 15 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Well, I've been saying for the last few weeks that the Patriots and Steelers would come down to who can get home field advantage. In week 14, the Steelers made another furious, 4th quarter comeback with a field goal from Chris Boswell. This is becoming quite a trend the last few weeks.The Patriots however upheld a tradition of shitting the bed in Miami. Jay Cutler looked like the QB every body thought he was ten years ago and Kenyan Drake roasted the Patriots defense with 193 total yards. Not quite what the league was expecting, but that is what happens in the NFL. A week of unexpected outcomes.

Cold Weather Games - NFL Week 14 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Week 14 is upon us and the December games are in full swing. That means teams that can't play defense, run or at least protect the football, and play on the road are done. This is usually when the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson are at their best. They tend to travel well, they protect the football, and are never out of a game. Their defense has bounced back to be a dominant unit once again, holding the high-flying Eagles to only 10 points was quite an accomplishment, especially considering how well Wentz had the offense humming in recent games.

4th & Inches College Football: College Football Playoffs Special- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

It’s Selection Sunday for the college football playoffs, and we just wouldn’t be doing the name 4th & Inches service if we didn’t bring you a last-ditch effort to predict how the rankings shake out. Who makes the cut? Who’s left crying at home?

Oh, and to make it interesting – we’re going to treat these like extra credit for our picks.

Home Field Advantage - NFL Week 13 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  Pittsburgh had their hands full against Green Bay on Sunday Night Football. The Packers, minus Aaron Rodgers, came to play and had the lead for a good portion of this game. Hundley didn't seem scared by the primetime moment and really stepped up to give his team a chance in the game, delivering 3 TDs and 245 yards with no interceptions. As impressive a showing as Green Bay's younger players had, the Steelers still pulled out their 9th win of the season to keep pace with New England. Now onto the picks!

4th & Inches College Football: Conference Championship Week - Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

Regular season is over. For most, anyway. Now it’s time to determine who truly reigns supreme in each conference. And despite being the end of the season, there is still plenty at stake. Automatic bowl bids, jockeying for better bowl games, and last efforts to lock up the coveted playoff spots.

With the selection committee making their picks on Sunday, it’s only right that we squeeze ours in beforehand too. So be on the lookout for a special edition of 4th & Inches on Sunday, December 3rd. We’ll tell you who we think fill out the 4 bracket seeds, who will be first man out, and who we see as the biggest snub.

Getting to the end for us – once bowls are announced we’ll put together a bowl game edition, and be following through the national championship. But after this weekend, probably only 2-3 more editions of 4th & Inches. But let’s stay focused on the immediate future and dive into the conference championship matchups. Just one order of business beforehand…

This Is When The Fun Begins - NFL Week 12 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

  It just goes to show that QB play is impossible to predict. The Vikings have spent several first round draft picks to find their QB and Case Keenum has fallen into their laps. A player almost every NFL team could have signed is leading a division leader and a team currently sitting at number 2 in the NFC. So more than anything I think the lesson in today's NFL is, do whatever you must to avoid Sam Bradford as your starting QB! Now onto the picks!

4th & Inches College Football Week 13- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

This is my personal favorite week of college football. Rivalry week.

Throw out the records. Throw out the expectations. Hell, throw out the analysis. Rivalry week is just chaos and anarchy. Like a wasteland simultaneously before and after the era of mankind - anything goes.

And speaking of rivals - I believe congratulations is owed to our favorite Gumpa.

Alton Lane Tailored Apparel Grand Opening- Justin Rhoades- Cameron Village Raleigh NC

We decided to head out to their new store front in Cameron Village, one of Raleigh's premier shopping centers. This showroom did not disappoint. From the hidden backroom and hand rolled cigars to the Old Fashioned cocktails, thanks to Elijah Craig Bourbon, this night was everything we expected from Alton Lane.

Survivor Series 2017: Bold Predictions- Bryce Pauley- Houston TX

This may be wishful thinking, but hear me out. Daniel Bryan’s desire to return to the ring is evident, from his talking smack rants to his Total Divas tirades, Daniel Bryan wants to return to the ring. With his contract with WWE set to end in less than 1 year, expect Bryan to push for a return to the ring even if it is as a part-timer. Would the WWE really risk Daniel Bryan exiting the WWE and making his return in ring that isn’t WWE owned?

4th & Inches College Football Week 12- Austin Snyder- Raleigh NC

Well damn. We had all bought into Georgia’s infallibility. And then Auburn came along and ruined it. Jerks. Us, not Auburn.

And Miami rolling over Notre Dame?! Last week was just a fun week of football. This week, however, feels like a time warp. Looking at these matchups you might think it was week 1! But rain or shine, they still play, and we still pick. And speaking of picks…

- NFL Week 11 - Justin Rhoades - Raleigh, NC

For as long as Drew Brees and Sean Payton have been together in New Orleans, the Saints have been a pass first team that just tries to outscore their opponent. Defense and the ground game usually came off as an afterthought and aspects of the game that just helped give Drew and the offense a rest. All that said, the Saints were one of the most fun teams to watch, especially for fantasy purposes. Every week at least one of their players would go off and have fantasy owners shaking their heads. That fantasy element hasn't changed, now it's just running backs tearing up the league, not wide receivers and gifted tight ends.
