Ultimate Warrior died. WTF?
was one of my favorites as a kid. rest in peace
Goodnight sweet prince
So Wrestlemania was good. Though truthfully I am a bit more pissed off about Cena beating Wyatt then Taker losing. Taker had to lose eventually and only star left was Cena. Plus Brock could deal with the burden of beating the streak better then anyone else (pretty much making himself the most hated person of all time).
I didn't watch Raw but fuck yeah for Paige debuting and winning the Divas title. Finally there is the potential for a great divas rivalry/feud. Though I am still a bit better they debuted Emma and turned her into a comedy bit.
I still miss Bruiser Brody.
Just bought my ticket. I'm going to WrestleMania
8/27 Rock the Bells @ Shoreline
9/1 Amon Tobin @ The Warfield
9/30 DJ Premier vs. Pete Rock @ Mighty
Thought this Wrestlemainia was pretty fucking fantastic overall. It gave two main event people mid card titles so that should help elevate those titles back to wear they should be. A fucking awesome ending tp the main event. I figured Rollins would cash in after he lost earlier but him to do so during the match was great. Only down side was Sting and Wyatt both losing. Also the Rock surprise was fun but didn't feel like it served any real purpose to it. At first I thought it was a build up between him and HHH for next Wrestlemania but then I feel like that got squashed with the whole Rousey thing. Your thoughts and opinions?
Awesome show! Reigns took an ass whooping! It was worth watching just to see and hear Lesnar say "suplex city bitch" ! Loved the cash in for Rollins...no security, didn't wait until somebody won first and made it a triple threat...perfect ending!
Sting losing is one thing, but that nostalgia overload was fucking stupid. Worst. Nitro. Ever. Sure it was slow, but the match had an old school heavyweight main event feel to it and should've been a bit cleaner than that. They Russo'd it. I now expect a sledgehammer on a pole match.
Rusev losing was a bummer, but the way he berated Lana was good. I mean, it was an awful thing to do, but good heel work.
The IC ladder match was unnecessary. They should've done away with that and the extended Raw segment with The Rock and had a title match with Ambrose/BNB and an additional Bryan/Ziggler match instead.
The main event was painful to watch. And Reigns' comeback was absurd. But that ending was so worth it. Good for Rollins.
Anybody still watch this nonsense and want to talk Royal Rumble?
My prediction: HHH wins and screws Roman over. Jericho and Brock clash and create some new program to set up for Wrestlemania.
Ugh Jericho and Brock is something I have no interest in. To be honest, after the last PPV I stopped watching RAW save for the Vince McMahon storyline. I'll probably download and fast forward through last nights a bit. They seem to have written them into a Roman Reigns hole that's for sure. He either wins at Rumble or Mania. I see no other possibilities.
Also, is Vince shitting bricks yet that he has a 100,000 seat venue to fill in less than 90 days?
I guess it's Wrestlemania time so I'll probably start paying attention besides the occasional check in to see what is going on.
Also Brock and Jericho will not happen at this point. Jericho has only come back to put younger guys over now so I don't see them wasting Jericho on Brock when Brock is already the most over person. I can see Jericho going against Ambrose for the IC title match. That being said I really hope Jericho goes over in whoever he is in a match against, even if it's for the IC title. Everyone knows what he is there for now and him constantly putting people over becomes less effective and not as meaningful. As a "Jerichoholic" I just hope he gets one last run with hopefully the WWE title but most likely the IC title before he retires for good.
Brock has to win the Rumble and HHH should screw over Roman towards the middle of the event so we at least have some unpredictable drama at the end.
My dream WM card would include:
Brock vs Samoa Joe
Rock vs Bray
HHH vs Roman
Taker vs KO
Ambrose vs Y2J
Sasha vs Charlotte
But of course, no other wrestling organization exists, so Samoa Joe is not marketable. Also, I hope Bryan has been cleared all along and we watch the biggest pop ever on Sunday when he wins the Rumble.
Yeah, I thought about Bryan winning the rumble too. I think HHH, Brock, and Bryan are really the only likely candidates. I seriously don't see them giving Roman back the strap on the ppv. Maybe set up a title match on the following RAW with a screwjob from HHH and Vince.
Highly unlikely Bryan is fully cleared. That dude is as fragile as it gets.
I'd love to see a matchup of two contrasting styles between Brock and Bryan at WM though.
Yep, saw that. Sucks.
