With WrestleMania 31 only a few weeks away, I figured it would be about time to see what results people are believing are going to come of “The Granddaddy of Them ALL!”
Please vote on who you think will win each match!
The other day I listened to Cult of Personality and for the first time… I missed CM Punk. If you’re new to my ramblings you don’t realize it’s my fault you can’t read this at your job. Mostly because I stay cussin, but I really fucked around and used 53 variations of the word fuck to describe my anger at CM Punk losing the WWE title to The Rock. So it is from that place that I now condescend to Daniel Bryan fans who don’t seem to understand the way the business works, has always worked and will always work. The last time I wrote about CM Punk, I said I hope he never comes back. As I type this, I know it is only a matter of time before he does.
At the time I am writing this, Brock Lesnar is trying to leverage WWE and UFC against each other to get the most money he can. And honestly, Brock would be a damn fool to go back to UFC. He had a good run at first, but over time it became clear, he’s just a big guy who is without hope if he can’t take you down and lay on you, scoring at will with love taps. In WWE, Brock is guaranteed big paydays for like the next 20 years, doing exactly what he’s doing now. Fight four times a year, and win most of those. There are no such guarantees in UFC. And THAT brings me to CM Punk. I expect him to do ok. Win a few fights and build the hype, and then after a while, he’ll start getting exposed and retire. Then we’ll start hearing that he’s in negotiations to come back to WWE as a part timer. And he WILL be a big ass hypocrite for that shit. And none of us will care if the matches and promos are 2011 CM Punk quality.
I am very positive and hopeful about WWE’s future. I think Cena winning the US title and Bryan winning the IC title are signs that WWE actually cares about the prestige of the midcard titles. Reigns winning the world title is a sign that they’re preparing to not need to build its biggest show around old dudes because they’re making new stars. The build to Mania has suffered because the three biggest matches on the card all feature guys who either never appear on tv or rarely appear on tv. There’s something to be said for being a special attraction… but Bray Wyatt cannot get heat on his feud… I don’t even want to CALL something a feud when I’ve never even seen the two interact. HHH and Sting just trading video packages at this point, with maybe four times we’ve even seen someone dressed as Sting in a WWE arena. WWE is building up Roman by having everyone say he cannot win, and the one time we’ve seen the two of them in the same place at the same time, it was at WWE HQ, night after the Rumble. At this point, there is no real point to having the two of them touch. Still much excite.
CM Punk will finally get to main event Mania when he comes back. And. I. Will. Die. if it’s against the new best in the world, Seth Rollins. Honestly I look forward to a program between him and Ambrose, Wyatt, Rusev and Reigns. I’ll only have to wait a few years for WWE to overpay for what they could have already had.
Got a few minutes? Here are some quick thoughts on March 11, 2015 broadcast of WWE NXT on the WWE Network.
On Tuesday, March 10, WWE Studios released a straight-to-DVD animated original movie entitled The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown. On that same day, I purchased that DVD and watched it … twice. What follows is a brief review of that film and my thoughts on the experience.
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS, BUT I’M 100 PERCENT POSITIVE THAT IF YOU’RE READING THIS YOU’RE PROBABLY NOT PLANNING TO WATCH THE MOVIE ANYWAY. Continue reading L.E.W.D. Review of “The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown”
We’ve talked about it for a while, and we still have a lot of kinks to work out, but yesterday, March 7th, 2015, the L.E.W.D. Collective came together to speak on the state of professional wrestling in what will hopefully manifest into a weekly address. On this night Mr. Lamb aka Da Infamous DiZ, Mr. Morris aka The Godfather and Mr. Johnson aka THE Nic Johnson came together to vocalize stuff about other stuff. Well, the first two did: the latter was with us in text and served as a voiceless philosopher of awesome brilliance.
I’m saying too much. Give it a look and listen. And sit tight because we go on for about two hours.
Leave your comments here or on the Youtube page. Either way we love you, all our fans and supporters, dearly.
Except for you, Adrian.
