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.

Off The MainStream: 4th

February 26, 2008

Gorgeous Smackdown’s Diva, Victoria have recently ventured into custom car making. At a tender age, she’s has been avid about driving and cars. She has recently made this announcement on her blog, which have been updated here at WrestlingMAT

It must be nice to be able to sit at home, receive hefty WWE paycheck without doing anything – and that’s what Bobby Lashley is getting now. As part of the agreement on his release, WWE has agreed to pay Bobby Lashley his full contract until the end of May. In exchange, Bobby Lashley will not be allowed to jump to TNA during this period of time.

Well apparently, when you type in “Steroids” on Google.com, a photo of Batista is the first thing that show up. Ahem.

The Great Khali’s translator/manager, Ranjin Singh, is going to be off television for some time. Singh sustained a fractured patella after he was kicked from the entrance of the Elimination Chamber to the ground by Undertaker at No Way Out, this past Sunday. No word have been confirmed whether his character will be written off the storylines.

WWE’s internet marketing department have been rather aggressive lately. WWE now has official accounts on YouTube, Flickr and Facebook. You can see their YouTube page here, Flickr here and Facebook here. They’re branding their pages as the “WWE Fan Nation.” Quite a good move to engage the fans around the world.

Marty Jannetty was among the many wrestling names at the recent WrestleSlam UK convention. Jannetty stated to the press that nowadays people in WWE are being brought up way too soon and put into positions they’re not ready for. Jannetty used Mr Kennedy as an example. Furthermore, Jannetty stated that Shawn Michaels backs up his claim on Kennedy whenever the two talk. Kennedy is also rather unpopular among most of the senior wrestlers.

MVP’s reign as the United States Champion have recently crossed 282 days mark. This segment him as one of the 5 longest reigning U.S Champion, beating notable names such as Ric Flair, Chris Benoit, Sting and Stone Cold. By far, he is the longest reigning US champion of his generation. *Applaud*

Right now the news are hot with Divas on WWE/Playboy. A while back, “CW11 News” in New York City did a segment where they interviewed 3 Hooters girls who had previously posed for Playboy. One of the girls, Beverly Mullins, mentioned that she will be heading to WWE. You can view the video segment here. Mullins is not the only Playboy model under a WWE developmental contract right now, former Diva Search contestant and Playboy model, Taryn Terrell is also in. I’ve updated her blog here at WrestlingMAT

Column Of The Week: The Wrestlemania Moments

February 24, 2008

Wrestlemania is the grand daddy of wrestling not just in WWE. This is not an overstatement to glorify the event but more importantly of what it stands. In 5 weeks time, Wrestlemania will reach its 24th birthday (that’s even older than me) and it would be held at Florida. Over the years, we seen history, be a part of it and more so, shaped the way how Wrestlemania is today. Now, let’s us look at the ten moments of the 24 years luxurious legacy of Wrestlemania.

1/ Several celebrities such as Aretha Franklin, Reba McEntire and Boyz II Men have sung “America the Beautiful” over the years at WrestleMania, but perhaps no rendition was more memorable than that of the late, great Ray Charles. Charles certainly set the tone for what turned out to be a spectacular night at WrestleMania II, a night that set the success of wrestling in America.

2/ Wrestlemania III of Hogan defending his WWE Championship against the undefeated Andre the Giant was arguably one of the most anticipated match in sports-entertainment history. The Eighth Wonder of the World vs the Pride Of American. Hogan miraculously lifted Andre in the air and slammed him down to the canvas in one of the most memorable moments in WWE history.

3/ The first Intercontinental and WWE Championship match was put into a main event match at WrestleMania VI between Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. Two brothers dubbed the Ultimate Challenge, and it certainly lived up to its billing. After missing his patented leg drop, Hogan was taken down by the Warrior after a big splash. Instead of being a sore loser following the defeat, Hogan grabbed what used to be his WWE Championship and gave it to Ultimate Warrior before embracing him in a true act of good sportsmanship.

4/ WrestleMania X will go down as one of the best WrestleManias in history, because of the first-ever Ladder Match between Shawn Michaels and Razor. There were several memorable moments during the match, but perhaps the most memorable was Michaels leaping off the top of ladder and landing a splash on Ramon. Ramon may have ended up winning the match, but Michaels soaring off the ladder is a visual that will be etched in the minds of WWE fans forever.

5/ Recorded as one of the worse “bloodbath” matches, the Stone Cold versus Bret Hart match at Wrestlemania 13 definitely set the tone as one of the most memorable moment. After a brutal match that saw Stone Cold badly busted open, Hart locked in the Sharpshooter. Stone Cold could not escape Hart’s clutches, but he refused to give up. Stone Cold eventually passed out from the pain, and although he lost, he left the ring to a standing ovation as the fans chanted his name.

6/ “Iron” Mike Tyson, the self proclaimed baddest man on the planet served as a guest referee of an epic battle between Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 15. Tyson initially aligned himself with Michaels and D-Generation X, but in the end, he turned on Michaels and counted 1-2-3 for Stone Cold marking the start of the Austin Era.

7/ At WrestleMania X-Seven, Stone Cold Steve Austin challenged The Rock for the WWE Championship. It was The Rattlesnake versus the Brahma Bull. The Hell-Raising versus The Electrifying. The stakes couldn’t get higher than this one. Two top faces in the business go at it one on one. In the end, Stone Cold enlisted the help of Mr. McMahon to defeat his nemesis and regain the WWE Championship. Everyone stood in mere shock when Austin shook Vince’s hand after his victory.

8/ After a long hiatus from WWE, Hogan returned with the nWo to wreak havoc. The Rock challenged him to an Icon vs. Icon Match at WrestleMania X8, and Hogan accepted. It’s not easy for a WWE Superstar to reach an iconic status. It’s even more rare that two icons meet in the same ring to go one on one, but that was exactly the case at WrestleMania X8. In one of those rare moments that transcends the event itself, the two Icons met in the middle of the ring, face to face, for the first time. The Toronto crowd went nuts cheering back and fore for both men. It concluded with a handshake between both men.

9/ At Wrestlemania XX, the crowd of Madison Square Garden were heart-warmed in sight to see both men, who worked so hard in this business, finally achieving the impossible, and that’s Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Following Benoit’s Triple Threat win over Triple H and Shawn Michaels, he celebrated in the ring with his best friend and WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero as they teared and hugged each other as the capacity crowd filled the arena with applauds.

10/ Perhaps the most heavily advertised match ever in the world of wrestling and that’s two billionaire going one on one at Wrestlemania 23. The Trump Vs Mcmahon match generated huge publicity from the media and eventually, Vince got his head shaved bald as Bobby Lashley, Donald Trump and Stone Cold stood hand in hand.

As we stood back and appreciate what has been done, Wrestlemania 24 will invades the Citrus Bowl, FL in 5 weeks time. Till then, see ya!

Nose Shows?

February 18, 2008

As expected earlier, The Big Show made a triumphant return at No Way Out, last night. The Big Show accompanied by Shane Mcmahon had an on screen confrontation with the current WBC Welterweight Champion, Floyd Mayweather. The confrontation led to a straight jab from Floyd right into the face of the Big Show. It is said that the Big Show suffered a legitimate broken nose, which caused him to bleed pretty badly. Not a good start for a big return here.

Another “show” received a broken nose as well. And that is the Showstopper, Shawn Michael. It is said that he had some difficulties continuing last night’s Elimination Chamber match. Not much word have been said but he should be able to work for tonight’s RAW.
