Royal Rumble last night… a review…

So last night, I watched the Royal Rumble. I had no interest in watching the Grammy Awards last night so I skipped it and watched the Rumble instead which was a lot better. I thought it was a pretty damn good Rumble ppv but could have been better. The best matches of the night were the Men’s Rumble and the Women’s Rumble, but the rest of it was too predictable. Most of the ppv was predictable when it comes to the winner but one thing that had unexpected surprises was the Men’s Rumble.

When it comes to the Men’s Rumble match, everybody was expecting either Cena Or Reigns to win. Most every thought Reigns was gonna win the whole thing but the winner turned out to be someone else surprisingly. That winner is a Japanese wrestler by the name of Shinsuke Nakamura. He won the Rumble last night which was actually pretty shocking and unexpecting. WWE did something right for once by giving the Men’s Rumble winner to Nakamura ’cause it’s well deserving and that guy is very talented. So looks like it’s gonna be Nakamura vs. AJ Styles @ WM-34 for the WWE Championship.

They did that ’cause it looks like WWE still wants Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar for ‘Mania 34 and they’ll figure out a way to make it happen still.

During the Men’s Rumble, there were a few surprise one-off returns of past superstars. Rey Mysterio and The Hurricane both made an appearance during the Rumble. I’m sure they’re not back in the WWE full time, just a one-off but it was still awesome to see them, though! That’s all we got in the Men’s rumble when it comes to surprise entrants, just Mysterio and Hurricane Helms. We didn’t get the Undertaker, the Rock, Hulk Hogan, Sting, etc. None of those guys.

As far as the first ever Women’s Rumble goes, I thought it was surprisingly good even though we all knew Asuka would probably win that one and she did. It was still a fun and exciting as hell match. A lot of past female superstars came back as one-offs during the match: Trish Stratus, Lita, Michelle McCool, Jacqueline, Vickie Guerrero, Kelly Kelly, Molly Holly and a few others. I thought the women did a good job. I know the wrestling fans are getting all mad ’cause they’re not gonna like women main eventing a big ppv but hey, I think the women deserve this. In the past, women didn’t get to main event much and I think they finally deserve to.

After the women’s Rumble got over with, we got another big surprise that Ronda Rousey suddenly showed up. She showed up paying tribute to Roddy Piper as you can see in the pic below:

Yes, that is really Roddy Pipers jacket she’s wearing. I’ve read somewhere that Ronda is gonna be working for WWE on a full time schedule. She signed a full-time contract so she’s definitely not a one-off. She’ll be a part of the new women’s division now. I’m not a big fan of Ronda’s liberal politics but I’m still a fan of her. I’ve always liked Ronda and think she’ll be good for WWE. Ronda paid tribute to Piper ’cause she’s not just a fan, her and Piper were lifelong best friends. So this means we have two former UFC stars in WWE now. Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey which is cool, in my opinion. Ronda is already getting a lot of haters of her being in WWE now, but give her a chance. Don’t be so quick to judge. She’s new and I think she’s gonna have a great run.


So the headline main event for “Wrestlemania 33” is gonna end up being John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Title? Looks like it!!!

So I watched the Royal Rumble ppv last night and it was good. So the main event for the upcoming ‘Mania 33 is probably gonna end up being John Cena vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Title. Last night John Cena won the WWE Title from AJ Styles (which was an amazing match btw, more on that later in this post) and Randy Orton ended up winning the 30 Man Rumble matchup. So that basically means that Orton is now automatically slotted to headline ‘Mania 33 for the WWE Championship. Could it actually be Cena vs. Orton @ ‘Mania? Possibly if Cena can keep the belt for that long that is unless someone takes it from him before ‘Mania but I doubt it though. It may not seem like it but Cena and Orton never had a headlining singles match at ‘Mania before so I think it’s finally time. Cena and Orton had other singles matches at other ppv’s before but never ‘Mania. Correct me if I’m wrong. I think Cena vs. Orton should happen at ‘Mania ’cause that would make an amazing match.

It’s sad that the Undertaker lost again but I think the Undertaker will still have a match at WM-33 this year. Who would Undertaker have a match against? Undertaker will probably end up having a match against Roman Reigns. Undertaker got eliminated by Roman Reigns at the Rumble last night so the Undertaker will definitely want his payback. So watch out Roman, you just messed with the wrong guy!

As far as the Rumble match itself goes, it was pretty good but slightly disappointing. Not because that Orton won, though. I’m actually glad that Orton won ’cause that was unexpecting. They made last night’s Rumble match unpredictable this time which was good. I’m disappointed in the Rumble match ’cause they made Brock Lesnar and Goldberg look like babies, they didn’t last long in the match at all. Sad! There were also no surprising superstar returns from the past which also made it disappointing: No Kurt Angle, no Triple H, no Shane McMahon… nobody came back. Just current superstars.

I thought Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns match was really good. I’m starting to like Kevin Owens even more. After watching that match, I thought to myself, did Vince finally lift the ban on chair shots to the head? There were a few of those in that match last night I see.

I thought the best match of the night was Cena vs. AJ Styles. That match was amazing. You see Vince? That’s what we all want to see. GOOD WRESTLING. Technical wrestling finally made a comeback. That match was incredible and will go down as a classic years from now. Both men did a phenomenal job. Ya know, when I used to watch TNA Wrestling… I’ve had my eye on AJ Styles for years and I always knew that guy would be a big WWE Superstar someday and here he is. I used to hate John Cena but I don’t anymore. Cena is becoming my favorite lately and I’m liking him more and more. I don’t understand all the Cena hate ’cause like him or not, that man is very talented and works hard. My respect grew on Cena lately.

It was a pretty good Rumble last night.


WWE “Royal Rumble” backlash have gone viral… wow!!!

When something like this makes InfoWars PrisonPlanet, you know this have gone viral. It doesn’t surprise me, though.

Vince McMahon maybe a great businessman and all but he sucks when it comes to the creative writing part of WWE. It’s undeniable that the man is crazy and is a bit of an egomaniac.

Will WWE be forced to go out of business when they get too many fans boycotting them? No. WWE is too powerful of a company. They’ll always be around no matter how much backlash they’re in. Vince claims he just does what’s best for business but I don’t buy it. He just does whatever makes him rich.


What took wrestling fans this long to find out that WWE is nothing but garbage???

Right now WWE is in a huge backlash of wrestling fans in America ’cause as you can see they have started a #CancelWWENetwork campaign. They are angry at last night’s Royal Rumble ppv which I didn’t watch thankfully. I knew the ppv was gonna turn out garbage like the rest of ’em. Predictable and boring.

I do hear the fans though that Vince McMahon doesn’t know what the fans want. He only does what he wants. Chris Jericho said so himself on his podcast show and through his three books. Chris revealed some pretty big WWE behind the scenes secrets that everything you see on TV, Vince has the final say. If he likes it, the ideas go on TV and if he doesn’t like any storylines and matches, he won’t use ’em. Vince only does what makes him happy in WWE and not the fans.

I mean… Vince got rid of the TV-14 “Attitude Era” which is what the fans liked to see the most and then they went PG. Vince got rid of the words “Wrestling” and “fans”. Instead of the word, “wrestling” Vince calls WWE “entertainment”. Instead of calling people who enjoy watching WWE “fans”, he refers to them as the “WWE Universe”. He tries his best to keep “wrestling” out of things and sees it as an “entertainment” show.

Vince no longer wants blood in wrestling which is what fans also wanna see. He also got rid of all the sex in the WWE Divas and they are not even allowed to show off their cleavages anymore. It’s not “wrestling” when the women are not allowed to off some skin.

I haven’t been watching WWE for way over a year now. Sometimes I’ll tune in to see what’s going on as I did watch RAW the last two weeks, though. I’ll probably go back to not watching.

Glad I didn’t watch the Royal Rumble last night and didn’t waste money on it. I never subscribed to “WWE Network” and don’t think I will. I’m probably gonna skip Wrestlemania this year as well.

I always knew that WWE is garbage. It hasn’t been good for over a decade. Even though the product needs a lot of improvement and a lot of work, I still respect their performers and wrestlers, though. I just want WWE to bring back “wrestling” and want them to stop shoving John Cena in our faces all the time.

It’s nice to see that fans have finally woken up. Check out this hilarious video below. I’m sure Chris Jericho will have a say in all of this on his next podcast show.


Sting is probably gonna win the Royal Rumble this Sunday…

Sting the legendary WCW/TNA star just made his RAW debut last night. Yeah, I watched WWE RAW and it was surprisingly a really good show! All the way through! Yeah, the Road to Wrestlemania begins. The Royal Rumble is this Sunday and I think Sting is gonna win the 30 Man Royal Rumble matchup. That’s why I think Sting appeared at the end of RAW last night so the WWE can let fans know that Sting is gonna be a part of the Rumble. Sting is probably gonna make a Rumble entrant.

Yeah, I took a really long break from watching WWE but I’ve just gotten back into it. Started watching again last week. I usually start watching again around Wrestlemania time.

Will I watch the Royal Rumble this Sunday? Probably not ’cause it’s gonna turn out to be not a very good PPV. The Royal Rumble ppvs haven’t been that great for the last several years.

Sting is probably gonna win the Rumble this Sunday so he can headline Wrestlemania for his last match. It’s probably gonna end up being Sting vs. Triple H as the headlining main event at this years ‘Mania.

Yeah, I’m a big time wrestling fanatic and geek. I don’t feel ashamed of it and I’ll never grew out of it. I will always love professional wrestling ’til the day I die. I respect the wrestlers and the business. They work hard for what they do by entertaining fans and I respect them for that. Love ’em or hate ’em, they work very hard.

I just don’t like where WWE is going with their product and want them to get better. Bring back the good wrestling and good storylines. Like everybody else, I’m tired of the WWE shoving John Cena in our faces. That’s another reason I take breaks from WWE from time to time.


Thought: About the Royal Rumble and the upcoming Wrestlemania…

Yes, I did end up watching the “Royal Rumble” last night Sunday night and it was real good. I actually enjoyed it. I’m glad the WWE is finally giving the younger stars the push and recognition they deserve. Even though I don’t care for the PG rating, I still respect all the performers, because they work hard for what they do and they’re good at it. Like professional wrestling or not.

The matches before the 30 Man Rumble match, were pretty good too. I actually enjoyed John Cena vs. Kane, that was actually a well played match. Kane is back to wearing the mask and he’s more evil than before.

As for the 30 Man Rumble matchup, that was pretty exciting like always. A wrestler named, Sheamus, ended up getting the win. He’s the redheaded Irish wrestler who has the white skin. There was a couple of surprise returns though: Road Dog (of the New Age Outlaws), Kharma (formerly known as Awesome Kong), and Hacksaw Jim Duggan were the surprise appearances. Most of the wrestlers in the 30 Man Rumble matchup were, young guys and pretty new to the WWE. I’m glad they gave the newer and young stars, a chance. Sheamus, is a pretty new and young wrestler, and it’s about time they gave the Rumble someone new to win, ya know?

As for the upcoming Wrestlemania, I’m looking forward to the Rock vs. John Cena match. A dream match that everyone wanted to happen and now it’s happening soon. As much as I don’t like John Cena myself, I know Cena and the Rock are going to put on one hell of a match.

I did watch RAW last night, and the Undertaker returned, the night after the Royal Rumble. It looks like Undertaker will have a third match against Triple H, again.

I’ll get back to watching RAW every week leading up to Wrestlemania to catch up. Looking forward to WM-28. I watch Wrestlemania every year.


Thought: Why WWE pushed Alberto Del Rio to main event status so quickly?? Please read here to find out why…

I’ve been reading some wrestling message forums and blogs, and many wrestling fans are questioning why did WWE give a new guy the Wrestlemania main event status so quickly? Yes. I agree it’s a little weird. Alberto Del Rio have only been around for a few months. His performing have been creating a buzz around the wrestling world.

If you want to know why WWE did this, here is why.

WWE wants to give Mexican wrestlers more recognition. They are about to sign more Mexican wrestlers in the near future. As I believe they want to do Mexican tours, perform shows in Mexico. WWE do world wide tours yearly, and they will do four shows in, Mexico, in the Month of May. Check it out, here.

Since Wrestlemania 27, is on April 3rd, a month before the Mexican tour, I’m pretty sure, Alberto Del Rio will be made World Heavyweight Champion at Wrestlemania. WWE wants to make Alberto World Heavyweight Champion for the Mexican fans, when they go on the foreign tour. WWE wants the Mexican fans to feel happy that their home country hero is a champion. Get the drill? It’s easy to understand. Mexican wrestling fans deserve this. Alberto maybe a hated wrestler in the USA since he is a heel, but I’m sure he’s LOVED by all Mexican fans in Mexico. He’s a hero to Mexicans.

I think Alberto is a great performer. I think Eddie Guerrero was the best Mexican performer, no one could top him, but Alberto is my second favorite. Chavo Guerrero and Rey Mysterio are Mexicans as well. Why couldn’t they give it to Chavo or Rey Mysterio instead??? It’s because Alberto is more recognizable and has more star power. Alberto got popular quick because of his good looks and his excellent mic skills. He’s also very entertaining.

I hope you understand why WWE did this. I think it’s a good idea too as Mexican fans deserve a Mexican champion!


Royal Rumble review…

So I watched the “Royal Rumble” last night. Although the ppv was too predictable like always, it was still fun to see. So Alberto Del Rio, a new and young Mexican wrestler ended up getting the win after all! Even if I said, HBK Shawn Michaels was going to win in that predictions video I did, I kind of called it on Alberto Del Rio first before I changed my mind and named Shawn Michaels instead. Check my tweet. I posted that tweet before I made that predictions video. So in a way, I’m right about Alberto anyway. I’m glad WWE gave it to Alberto. He deserves it. At least WWE finally gave the opportunity to someone new & different. It’s getting very boring seeing John Cena or Randy Orton win at the end of almost every ppv, all the time. I like that Alberto guy, he is a great performer and he’s going to be a huge star quick. We have a new upcoming WWE Champion on our hands.

It was a great Rumble last night. The surprising superstar returns we got last night were just Kevin Nash aka Diesel “Big Daddy Cool” and Booker T, came back. I believe both are back full time, not a one off. Kevin Nash aka Diesel was the only legend that showed up. We didn’t get Hacksaw, Jimmy Snuka, Million Dollar Man, etc. None of those guys. Although there were a lot of rumors of Triple H and Christian being there last night, we didn’t get them either. Look like they are trying to make Triple H’s return unpredictable and not expecting. Triple H will be back, only when it’s a good time. Could the reason Triple H didn’t come back yet is because, he might be the Anonymous RAW GM after all? Could be. Never know.

Anyway, I was kind of hoping the Royal Rumble was going to have the New Nexus and CM Punk be dominate toward the end, so they and John Cena can be the last in the ring, but that didn’t happen. All the Nexus guys got taken out. So who ended up being the last two guys in the ring?

Santino Marrella and Alberto Del Rio were the last two. I know a lot of wrestling fans don’t like that idea, but I love it. Give some of the younger guys a chance for the spotlight. The younger guys deserve to main event more and it’s great that WWE is finally making that happen.

On with the other matches on the card, I liked Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler. I was right on that prediction. I knew Edge was going retain. It was a long match too, fun and exciting. I also liked Randy Orton vs. The Miz, I too was right on that prediction, the Miz retained, of course. As for the Divas match, I was wrong on that prediction. That was the only match I was wrong on. Eve Torres ended up getting the win for the Divas belt. Awesome Kong didn’t make her debut yet at the Rumble. Weird. Everyone was expecting Kong to make her debut but she didn’t show. Like WWE wants to keep her upcoming debut unpredictable too.

It was a pretty good Rumble last night. So it’s gonna be Alberto Del Rio vs. The Miz for Wrestlemania? That’s what it’s looking like. Good job WWE. WWE is getting better.


Thought: Awesome Kong puts up questionable photo on her twitter…

Well I just got done watching the Royal Rumble ppv. Awesome Kong didn’t make her debut yet. However, she put up a questionable photo as her default profile pic on twitter. She’s all sexy looking and wearing pink.

Check it out, here.

Is that what she’s going to look like when she arrives in WWE? She’s coming in as a babyface and not as a heel like she was in TNA?

Look at her boobs, though, dayam. She’s actually kind of hot. Hopefully this is just for Valentine’s Day and she’s not going to look like this in WWE.
