Wrestlemania is just around the corner, it will happen on March 30th on ppv. Wrestlemania 24 is happening live at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. So Wrestlemania 24 is obviously going to be an outside event this time around. WM-24 will be hosted by Snoop Dogg to help promote his new album “Ego Trippin'”.
So far the card is:
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Champion: Triple H vs. John Cena vs. Randy Orton
World Heavyweight Champion: Edge vs. The Undertaker
Floyd Mayweather vs. The Big Show (not sure what type of match they’ll have just yet)
Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Career Threatening Match: Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels HBK
24 Man Battle Royal – Winner Faces ECW Champion
Finlay vs. JBL – Belfast Brawl
Bunnymania Lumberjack Match: Candice and Maria vs. The Glamazon and Melina
This year’s Wrestlemania doesn’t look too exciting at all. It basically feels like a regular RAW episode. The only matches I look forward to seeing at this year’s Wrestlemania is “Ric Flair vs. HBK” and “Finlay vs. JBL”.
I don’t think we’re gonna get any of the returning past superstars for a one time apearrance. There’s a slight chance that Stone Cold Steve Austin may be a part of WM-24, I don’t think we’ll even see the Rock there. Don’t even know if Mick Foley will be a part of it this year.
I don’t like how the wrestling industry is going these days. There is no more star power. All the guys that we looked after in the wrestling industry is gone. No more Hulk Hogan, no more Eddie Guerrero, and no more Chris Benoit (who was one of the bests in the industry due to horrible tragic events that we all know about). While we do have guys like Triple H, John Cena and Randy Orton, those three will never be in the same league as the Rock and Stone Cold.
WWE is not good anymore. I’ll still watch “Wrestlemania 24” of course but it’s gonna be no different than other ppv’s. WWE needs wrestlers that we all can look after too just like we all looked after Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold. WWE doesn’t have that anymore. While WWE superstars try to rise to the top like Hogan, Stone Cold and the Rock, those three men will never be replaced. Those three guys are the ones that made WWE mainstream. There will never be wrestlers like them ever again.
WWE has always been a flop and it’s gotten worse since the Benoit tragedy. It’s no wonder UFC is way more popular than WWE now.
What can Vince McMahon do to make WWE huge again like it once was in the 80’s? I’ll have a topic on that soon. A week before Wrestlemania I will make my matches predictions when the card is done.
