I think Cesaro is my favorite wrestler in the WWE by a pretty substantial margin. He's good in the ring, good on the mic, and i love the classic cocky foreign heel characters every time.


Spoiler:
also, he used to be one of the main dudes in Chikara, and i think i might have mentioned that I love me some Chikara.

It doesn't matter what Punk does, smarks will still chant his name.

Was gonna venture out on Sunday to watch WM, but I think it will be another stream night.

WM is the one PPV I treat myself to. Not only does it obviously look much better on my tv in hd, but WWE seems to really go after streams of it moreso than the other PPVs.

That has a lot to do with it.

Last year I ended up going out but I was home by the time Rock/Cena was on. Even then I had to go through several streams to watch 20+ min of WM.

I know I'm not telling any tales outta school here but, from the friggen camera guy handing Zeb Colter a broken crutch to beat Del Rio, to them setting up the stage during Jericho's match for Fandango and acting like they had no clue he was comming out, then Fandango's kicks to Y2J's head that were 6 feet away all the way down to Punk pouring a creamatied persons ashes all over him....this was the most fake night of wrestling ever. And I didnt even see the entire show. And I included the time Beaker interfered in a match to help Santino win

The spilled Paul Bearer ashes might seem in poor taste but Paul would've absolutely loved it. Raw was excellent overall.

This is Ric Flair calling 911 when he found his son Reid Unresponsive. God I feel for any parent who goes through losing a child.

I've thought about that and even Madden touched on it right after they did the Paul Bearer tribute show when Punk stole the urn. Honestly I was kind of uncomfortable with it, but after they all say he would have loved it I realize in that business it is kind of an honor. I mean Paul (Bill) died, and they got him in a big storyline in WrestleMania. I guess you gotta see it from their end in that business, its their way of honoring them.

That was an awful go home show.

I don't think I've been less excited for a mania, since well... maybe the last couple years lol. I still order though, because its Wrestlmania.

Cena's promo was awful to start the show, Rock's promo was bad too. I haven't watched back the Punk/Taker stuff since I fell asleep before it came on, but as hard as WWE tries to make the fans hate CM Punk, he's still gonna get some cheers.

Ziggler/Bryan was a great match on Free TV, too bad we have to pay 70$ to watch two boat anchors(Kane and Big E) weigh them down at WM.

That's what we've done the last few years, but I just don't see myself spending the dough on WM this year. The card is just too predictable.

Oh and I'm also finally coming around to Fandango. Anyone who does a top rope leg drop is ok in my book. Jericho will make him look like a million bucks at WM because that's what Jericho does.

I actually had no issue with the ash spilling. I'm sure the story is lost over quite a few years as to who is actually in the urn, but wasn't it originally supposed to be Taker's parents inside?

It was more to do with the show being excellent overall. At best, I thought it was a C-.

Ditto. I know I mocked him repeatedly on here, but between him with the pre-match trolling of his name and that leg drop, I've done a 180.

Back in my day, the urn had green smoke and spot lights coming out of it.

Well they did give approval, so can't really say much. Unless WWE did something outside of what was told to them then that would be kind of messed up. Hard to know the full story. Either way I'm sure it's a sensitive subject for Bearer's son.

Uh oh.

For one brief second I thought it was actually Bearer. For that one brief second my mind went, "Best. Work. Ever." I kinda feel bad for thinking that.
