I miss you.
Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational
So, I guess WWE now thinks that people hate AJ more than they hate Vickie. OR they know that AJ will probably be cheered by a hot Wrestlemania crowd. It would be hilarious if her fiance was just hanging out in the audience watching the show. Jokes. I also expect a slight "we want Paige" chant.
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Things I expect to see....Goldust and Cody going at it. Michael Cole acting like Big Show being taken out is the most important moment in the history of everything. Del Rio taking out Big E. The crowd being hot for Ryder. Kofi doing something crazy. Rusev lasting a long time (he's not officially in the match I guess). Papa Shango (It's in New Orleans). And finally, if Warrior isn't in it....I think Cody or Dolph win the thing.
The Shield vs Kane & The New Age Outlaws
You know...I don't have much to say about this. I think it should be a pretty entertaining match. Lots of intrigue on The Shield side. I would have really enjoyed them splitting and facing each other at Wrestlemania. Maybe now they'll save it for SummerSlam or something. I've also been enjoying the Outlaws probably more than I ever have. I think the first time around they just made me sad that Michaels was gone.
The Usos vs. Los Matadores vs. Rybaxel vs. The Real Americans (Fatal Four Way for the WWE World Tag Team Championship)
I'm really not a big Usos guy, but I think the chances of Cesaro winning this are slim (I kinda just forget about Swagger...). Spin the bull....get a pop. It's too bad Ryback quit getting time to say weird shit on tv. Oh shit...I just read that this is on the Pre-Show....the fucking Divas get the main show!?!!?! Oh I guess with the Network it means nothing.
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
Well the outcome doesn't matter, but boy howdy is this booked well. I read someone describing this as the same story as CM Punk vs Cena, and I guess Punk was a cult leader for awhile....but Punk didn't have that aura of maybe being magical. Whatever....even if Super Cena does his Super Cena thing....I think Sister Abigail will be happy by the end of the night.
Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
It's weird, seems like the internet seems to think this is going to be amazing. I'm a little nervous. Brock wrestled completely differently back in the day...and really Brock has two awesome matches since being back (vs. Cena and vs. Punk). I also remember such things as Taker vs. Big Show and Albert and Taker vs. Big Boss Man. I've probably said all this before. Cautiously optimistic.
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Sorry Marshall....they got me back on board. I know they had to call an audible...but this shit is awesome. Triple H constantly trolling us. Using DBD to his strengths.
Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton vs. Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Title
It's weird. At this point I'm kinda torn. I've often quoted Motorhead on here saying "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch" about DBD. The fact he didn't win the Rumble made me so upset that yeah...I don't really care. I'll be completely unbelievably stoked if he wins...and I'll be completely horribly pissed if he loses...but I'll tune in Monday and keep freaking out....I think these last two paragraphs completely contradict but that's how I'm feeling these days.
The network makes me incredibly happy. It's so easy to use and yes...we can get basically everything elsewhere, but the fact that I was sitting at a bar recently and was able to find Undertaker vs. Hogan I in 30 seconds makes me stoked.
So far they're adding WCCW, Hardcore TV, and Legends Of Wrestling all the time. Legends House hasn't started yet. Everything I've read says they'll be adding tons of stuff throughout the year. They don't own Memphis yet. So far I've watched all of the Legends Of Wrestling and have been watching 1996 PPVs. There is just soooooo much stuff that I can't even fathom getting through it all.
Cheap Heat on Grantland is another great podcast.
I am behind on extracurricular....ROH is still awesome. I think I'm a Romantic Touch Mark. Chris Hero is apparently the Evolve Champ? (I have that event cued) I won't give you DragonGate USA spoilers that I just read accidently. NJPW I'm very slowly working through this year so far. Wrestling hasn't been my girlfriend lately...as I have a real one that completely marked out when DBD was getting the shit kicked out of him by HHH. It was one of the happiest moments one could have with a new girlfriend.
Sad that none of us could get together. I will be watching it at the ladies' house by myself...and I already warned her that I may cry.
Enjoy it guys. Can't wait to hear what you think.
