Who knew John Morrison had personality? Or rapping skills?

The former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion spoofed the Undertaker and Triple H in a rap video days before their Hell in a Cell match at Wrestlemania 28.

In the video, Morrison dons a prosthetic nose and wig to imitate Triple H. For Undertaker, Morrison sports a reddish goatee with a black hat and trench coat. Another man...

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...

Here are some final thoughts with just under 10 hours to go before show time.

*I have read a lot of different scenarios for what could happen at the conclusion of the WWE Title match between John Cena and The Miz. Even our own Alfonso Castillo touched on it briefly in his prediction for the match: Is it possible The Rock could leave Wrestlemania as the champion? Never say never is wrestling.

Wrestlemania 27 predictions: John Morrison, Snooki, Trish Stratus vs. Dolph Ziggler and LayCool


Alfonso: Because of Snooki’s involvement, I’ll bet this match goes on pretty late in the show, perhaps even second-to-last. I’m not expecting much out of it. Morrison and Ziggler are capable of putting together some solid athleticism, but that won’t be their jobs on this night. Instead, I expect some...

We’ve seen Snooki brawl on TV. Now we’ll see her brawl inside a WWE ring in an actual match.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi appeared on Raw last night and made an impact by slapping the spit out of Vickie Guerrero’s mouth. Then, she delivered a Lou Thesz press to LayCool that Thesz would have been proud of. Just kidding.

It was announced that the “Jersey...

2011 the year of comebacks in the WWE?

Every fan of pro wrestling loves a good comeback. Not even two full months into 2011, the WWE has had one big comeback after another.

Shawn Michaels returned last month after being announced as an inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame Class 2011. The Royal Rumble saw the return of Diesel and Booker T. The Rock made his first appearance in seven years on Raw this past week. Rumor has it Undertaker...

Here are the names and in parentheses is the number of Royal Rumble matches each star has appeared in. Mark Henry has the most experience so far appearing in 6 Rumble matches. John Cena...

Raw after-party: John Cena a member of Nexus?

John Cena is going to join the Nexus? How the does the WWE want me to believe that? Last night on Raw, Cena was supposed to face Wade Barrett. Instead, Barrett stood on top the announcer’s table and played type role of general manager. If Cena defeated the other members of Nexus he would then face Barrett.

Cena ran the gauntlet successfully pinning Health Slater, Michael Tarver, and David...

Young stars are the key to fixing the tag team division in WWE

The WWE has given no love to their tag team division over the last seven years. At one time, the tag team division was thriving with the likes of Edge & Christian, The New Age Outlaws, The Dudley’s, The Hardyz, and the APA. In the last few years we’ve seen “thrown together tag teams” of two stars that were primarily singles competitors their entire careers. We all know...

No Nexus/Undertaker follow up on Raw?

Raw this past week was all about the Nexus. They have once again regained their old form before they lost to Team WWE at Summerslam. In the opening of Raw they talked about how they destroyed the Undertaker. I’m sure it’s something that they are going to use in future promos as well which makes me wonder, when is Taker going to confront them?

I realize he’s on Smackdown feuding...
