The Steel Cage
I gave myself nearly a week to simmer about this one.
After all, there are lots of ways to book a wrestling show, and if I had the corner market on creative team omniscience, I might actually be on the creative team.
But sometimes you know you're right, and I am on this one: Triple H should have beaten The Undertaker Sunday at WrestleMania XXVIII, and John Cena should have beaten The...Read more »
WWE delivered a very good edition of WrestleMania last night that met or exceeded expectations for most of the night’s big matches, without too many dumbfounding booking decisions or comedy segments that took away from what worked on the show.
Any good fight promoter—whether in pro wrestling, boxing or mixed martial arts—will tell you that it’s all about the main event. A bad main event will...Read more »
Wrestlemania 28 is in the books and now we began to break it down and analyze it from top to bottom. Here’s my review of the show with a look at each match:
Sheamus defeated Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Championship
If you thought the World Heavyweight Title go no respect for being the opening match the last two year’s wait till you hear this: The match was over in 18 seconds!...Read more »
Just hours before Wrestlemania goes live on pay per view in Miami and even though I'm nestled in Brooklyn, I can feel the buzz.
Rock vs. John Cena. CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho. The possible returns of Brock Lesnar and/or Batista. This is what Wrestlemania is all about for us crazy wrestling fans. People can laugh at us wrestling fans, but this in our Super Bowl.
It's no secret I'm an Undertaker...Read more »
Just under 24 hours before the opening bell at Wrestlemania 28. Here are some lingering thoughts going into the big show.
Rock vs. John Cena
I don’t have any doubts that Cena will go over. The real question is do Rock and Cena have a cordial handshake following the match? Seth Mates posed this question in his prediction for the match. The handshake may not seem like a big deal to fans,...Read more »
This Sunday, The Undertaker puts his 19-0 WrestleMania winning streak on the line against Triple-H inside Hell in a Cell. And while the match is being billed as “The End of an Era,” I am confident it will not be the end of the Taker’s vaulted streak. Here’s why: 10. WWE will want to reach 20-0: It’s a nice, round number—the kind that would look great on a T-shirt or DVD cover. It would...Read more »
Hell in a Cell: Undertaker vs. Triple H (Referee: Shawn Michaels)
It’s a testament to the storytelling abilities of Triple-H, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels that there is some doubt as to how this match will end. To be sure, there would be few WrestleMania moments that would be bigger than Triple-H pinning the Undertaker’s shoulders to the mat and getting...Read more »
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...Read more »
The WWE production team always does a stellar job with their entrance sets, especially at Wrestlemania when they have much more room.
A photo of the WrestleMania 28 set at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens was leaked online yesterday. Plam trees are visible by the entrance ramp and the WWE will once again use a canopy over the ring in case Mother Nature doesn't cooperate.
Under the canopy...Read more »
One of the biggest debates among fans the week of Wrestlemania is the match order for the pay per view.
To many fans, the pecking order of matches is very important as it symbolizes importance as the show makes its way toward the main event. Yet, a Wrestlemania card is not always booked from least important to most important match. If that was the case, then why was the Women’s Title at Wrestlemania...Read more »
