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.

Mysterio Injured!

February 15, 2008

I guess many should have heard the news by now that Rey Mysterio suffered an apparent biceps injury at last night’s SmackDown/ECW brand house show in Santiago, Chile.

He was teaming up with Kane against the Edgeheads (Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder). Rey Mysterio did manage to pull through and finish the match. After being evaluated by the WWE medical crew, Rey Mysterio flew back to the United States to see the renown Dr James Andrew for further examination. Dr James Andrew is the doctor that worked on John Cena, Triple H, and Bobby Lashley in the past.

The emphasis now is not on how he got injured but the complications to come. Mysterio is scheduled to wrestle Edge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at No Way Out, and a possible match with Punk at Wrestlemania 24. His injury is a double blow to the present, poor performing creative writers.

The possible solutions are narrated down to a few names. Right now, FCW, WWE’s development organization are keen to release Big Show back into action. Unless the management are willingly to allow Show to step over Edge and prepare to let Batista win the EC, this would set up a blockbuster match of Batista/Show World title match at Mania. Of course, the very “creative” team often would choose to take the conventional way. Slot someone in to fill Mysterio place this Sunday, such as Kane.

OVW & WWE Part Ways

February 8, 2008

World Wrestling Entertainment® announced today that Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) will no longer be affiliated with World Wrestling Entertainment as an official developmental territory, making Florida Championship Wrestling™ (FCW™) WWE’s official development training facility for talent around the globe.

Over the weeks, the management team from WWE has been going on the firing rampant, axing at least 8 development talents off the list, including wrestling trainer, Al Snow. It has been one of the most sudden eruption coming from WWE since their ties with OHW has been going strong.

OVW has been a good school that created many talents including John Cena, Randy Orton, Mr. Kennedy, Bobby Lashley, Beth Phoenix, Carlito, Charlie Haas, Cody Rhodes, DH Smith, Jillian, Lance Cade, Meina, Maria, Mickie James, Paul London, The Highlanders, Santino Marella, Snitsky, Batista, Cherry, Curt Hawkins, Zack Ryder, Deuce & Domino, Festus & Jesse, Kenny Dykstra, Mark Henry, Michelle McCool, Victoria, Armando Estrada, The Boogeyman, CM Punk, Elijah Burke, John Morrison, Kelly Kelly, Kofi Kingston, Shelton Benjamin & The Miz. Upon hearing this news, many of the alumni were in shock.

It was mentioned that high authoritive figures walked out of the boardroom with solemn resentment to the decision. But that’s business and that’s Vince.

For those who are unclear over FCW, it is a new training center, set up by WWE’s producer, Steve Kire for future WWE Superstars. The facility has four wrestling rings and approximately 35 contracted athletes, with plans to increase that number to more than 70 in the near future. The new training facility will also host a weekly show in front of a live audience, to be broadcast for regional television.

Coming from a WWE viewpoint, the good prospect FCW can give, makes no surprise for this decision. It is business overall.
