Wrestlemania 4.0

February 27, 2008

Well in case you missed Wrestlemania earlier promotional video, you can find it here.

Also, Light It Up by Rev Theory have been recently added to this year Wrestlemania’s theme list. You can view it here.

OK, first start! What’s are the new updates for Mania?

Cena/Triple H/Randy Orton match have been hugely overshadowed by Mayweather/Show match. Which i find it personally kind of sad when the MAIN event is supposed to be the one that sells the most. In any case, wrestling fans are getting paranoid over Cena’s role in his new movie. I can strongly assured the fans that Cena role will not affect his match outcome at Mania.

Edge/Undertaker match is evolving something predictable as of late, but I love the reaction of how this feud is turning, especially when Taker is such a favorite.

Chavo/Punk feud is hitting the last phase smoothly. Frankly, I enjoyed their feud, each week.

Mayweather’s 20 million earning from Wrestlemania is getting huge attention from media of all areas. Expect him to appear in external interview shows in weeks to come. Big Show has been announced to be on the Smackdown roster but any brand would still cover this feud since it is the ATTENTION now. Rumors have sparked for Shane Mcmahon to be involved in some ways.

Shawn/Flair have been set. Legend Vs Legend. While many anticipate Ric Flair to lose, writers might hold Ric for a while longer. Now, that’s the killer. In any case, both of them squared off sometimes back in 2003/4’s Bad Blood PPV. Re-doing this match and hyping it to this extent is a bit blunt. Shawn is also expect to induct Ric Flair into the Hall Of Fame this year.

Y2J/JBL storyline have been canceled. It is said that Vince is behind this sudden change. He doesn’t like the way things are turning, especially the fans reaction to this tasteless grudge. Writers fault seriously.

As mentioned earlier, I knew Finlay is up to some secrecy. Now that they announced Finlay to be Hornswoggle’s dad. Things are definitely getting better. I am still trying to make sense over JBL/Vince vs. Hornswoggle/Finlay. It looks like a forcefully mixed dish to me. In any case, Hornswoggle/Mcmahon angle will set to end after Wrestlemania.

Poor Jericho. His return seems to be going down hill months after months. Now he is involved with Jeff/Shelton/Kennedy in the MITB.

Candice Michelle/Maria and The Glamazon & Melina. Typical of WWE to do at Wrestlemania but I am still looking forward to it. Puppies! (Jerry The King Lawler voice suddenly sounded in my head. Lol!)

Batista is said to be feuding with Umaga on the RAW Vs Smackdown angle.

There might be a huge tag team brawl involving Morrison/Miz, Jimmy/Shannon, Mark Henry/Daddy V, Curt Hawkins/Zack Ryder at Wrestlemania.

There are news leaked backstage that Matt Hardy is set to return this week on Smackdown. No words have been confirmed. If he do return, MVP is surely on his top list of rivalry.

Hogan/Austin name have not been added to this year Wrestlemania.

However, The Rock and Mick Foley might make an appearance. Speaking of The Rock, he would induct his grandfather and father at this year Hall Of Fame.

SHUT UR MOUTH CENA

February 27, 2008

In an interview with the UK Sun, John Cena talked about the Rock and his career choice. John Cena praises the Rock as a person, but he doesn’t like how the Rock hasn’t come back to wrestling.

John Cena talks about wanting to be a wrestler for his entire life. He talks about how the Rock basically fell into the business (probably because of his family ties). He says he doesn’t have a problem with the Rock becoming an actor (he’s doing the same thing). However, he doesn’t like how the Rock doesn’t come back to reward his loyal fan base.

Got to give John Cena credit for daring to say this. A lot of wrestlers feel the same way. However, most wrestlers are smart enough not to cross that line. It’s even more amazing that John Cena would say this knowing that the Rock is one of the beloved performers ever while he’s one of the most despised (fairly or unfairly) wrestlers ever.

The two are expected to cross paths later on this year during Wrestlemania weekend. It’ll be interesting to see how the Rock reacts.

Well many applaud Cena’s frankness, I do see these words coming back to him in later years. We shall see.

John Cena In “12 Rounds”

February 25, 2008

World Wrestling Entertainment is currently into another film production with Fox Atomic on “12 Rounds”, tapping Renny Harlin to direct and it sets star grappler John Cena, Steve Harris, Aidan Gillen and Brian White. The story centers on a New Orleans police detective (Cena) whose girlfriend is kidnapped. Harlin will direct the $20 million pic from a script by Daniel Kunka. This film is set only for digital video release.

Quite a weak story plot unless of course, evil crime lord explains why. This film is set to release sometime in September this year.

As of now, the concerns are build mainly on many things. With Cena involvement in the entertainment field, one would question, “Would Cena walked out the champ at Wrestlemania?” If not, “Would Triple H bootlicking tactics work and make him the twelve time champ?”

More importantly, this hype of this match is not build on mere anticipation of grudges, championship or feud. The main issue yet to be settled is what happens after this triple threat match.
