The Steel Cage
Last night we held our first ever live blog for Raw and you can see my rambling thoughts of the show in real-time by clicking here.
Let’s kick off with what the entire show was based around: The Rock and John Cena. Rocky delivered three recorded segments throughout the show from various parts of Boston. Keyword: recorded – that will come up a little later on so store that in the back of your...Read more »
11:11: Rock pulled a Cena and exited the ring after he said his peace. It was effective when Cena did it last week, but the Rock left Cena in the ring alone and he thrived. He mimicked Rock with bogus notes on his wrist and then hit hard with strong words driving home the point that he has to win at Wrestlemania. Even though Cena didn't dust off one of his raps as I had hoped, he came very close...Read more »
Like many wrestling fans, I read the latest wrestling news and rumors on various websites (aka dirt sheets). Some sites are much more reputable than others.
The one headline that is guaranteed to pop up at least twice a year, especially during Wrestlemania time, is the Undertaker’s retirement. I roll my eyes every time I see it and I rarely ever link out to it in this blog or mention it in...Read more »
Last night’s Raw was all about one thing: The Rock and John Cena’s match at Wrestlemania.
Raw culminated with The Rock’s return and a face-to-face showdown. The Rock delivered a decent promo calling Cena “kung pow chicken.” Was the promo up to Rock’s usually high standards? No, but it was still entertaining. The promo wasn’t “electric” because The Rock was too busy explaining to the fans whey...Read more »
WWE is going out of its way to bill this year’s WrestleMania main event as the biggest match in wrestling history. Considering the legacies of the Rock and John Cena—and the fact that the Rock has not competed in a singles match in nine years, calling the bout “epic” is not an understatement.
But Cena-Rock has some stiff competition for the title of “biggest” WrestleMania match ever. Here’s...Read more »
Undertaker. Triple H. Wrestlemania. Hell in a Cell. Say no more.
It’s official and thus, we are now on the road to Wrestlemania 28. Yes, we have the WWE building toward a Chris Jericho-CM Punk feud with the title at stake. Yes, we have John Cena vs. The Rock in an icon vs. icon match. But the road to Wrestlemania got a huge boost tonight on Raw in a tremendous segment that made it official:...Read more »
I love to read the message boards after “Raw” each week to see what fans are saying about the WWE’s product. This past week, the boards were filled with fans expressing their feelings about how boring it will be to see Triple H and the Undertaker in the ring one more time. In the immortal words of the Miz, “really?” In other words, is the internet wrestling community (IWC) serious? Are they really...Read more »
Brock Lesnar announced his retirement last night following a loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141. Thus, the rumors are beginning to fly that a return to the WWE could happen in 2012.
From all indications, the WWE and their fans would welcome Lesnar back with open arms. He was the company’s biggest star before he abruptly left in 2004 to pursue a career in the NFL. The former WWE champion didn’t...Read more »
Here are some extras quotes from Mich Foley on his former WWE colleagues:
Foley on WWE Champion John Cena:
"He treats everyone with respect from the big stars to the young guys and has a great sense of humor."
Foley on rumors of the reports of Undertaker's retirement:
"He's had some of his best matches later on in his career. That's unheard of."
"I...Read more »
Edge’s retirement on Raw last night was surreal. As he delivered a heartfelt speech about his long career I kept waiting for Alberto Del Rio to make his way down the ramp and interrupt Edge. Maybe a brawl would start and further their rivalry heading into their ladder match at Extreme Rules in three weeks.
Unfortunately for the fans, Del Rio never came out. Edge will forfeit the title...Read more »
