My Wrestlemania 24 review…

I watched Wrestlemania 24 tonight and I wanted to write a review…

 Here is my final predictions from last week:

http://brocknroll.wordpress.com/2008/03/27/thought-my-final-wrestlemania-24-predictions/

How many predictions did I get right?

I got 4 of them right. Not bad.

For the match results here they are, I’ll scroll down with a Spoiler warning for those who hasn’t seen it yet:

********************WM-24 Match RESULTS – SPOILER WARNING***********

The matches I got right with my predictions are: Batista won his match against Umaga, JBL won his match against Finlay, Shawn Michaels won his match against Ric Flair, and the Undertaker won his match against Edge.

The matches I got wrong are: Randy Orton retained the WWE title (pretty cleanly, the audience actually cheered for Randy ’cause they didn’t want John Cena getting it), Melina and the Glamazon won the Bunnymania lumberjack match, Kane won the 24 Battle Royal and later won the ECW champ, CM Punk wins Money in the Bank Ladder match, and Floyd Mayweather surprisingly won against the Big Show.

********************END SPOILER WARNING*******************************

As far as my thoughts on the ppv goes, I thought it was actually really good. I was surprised by it. I wasn’t bored one bit, it was actually one of the good Wrestlemania since the last several years. The last several Wrestlemania’s weren’t great but this one was. I wasn’t bored one bit.

Each match was exciting, thrilling and quite a ride.

Snoop Dogg did get into a little wrestling action by giving Santino Marella a clothesline and Snoop got to kiss wrestling Diva Maria at the end.

A celebrity appearance by Kim Kardashian which she was the guest hostess, she’s looking beautiful as always, she’s always been one of my favorite celebrity women. I was glad to see her on Wrestlemania.

In Orlando, Florida look like the weather wasn’t too good there, it was cloudy during the day there and it was raining a bit, but the Citrus Bowl looked fuckin’ amazing when it got dark.

I would say the best match of the night was of course “Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels”, that match was a thrill ride and the best one. Both men performed wonderfully, so much emotion and you can actually feel it. Ric Flair has always been a favorite of mine for many years.

It was a good Wrestlemania, maybe it’s because John Cena didn’t win this time. Even though John Cena is supposed to be a good guy in the WWE, everyone still hates him. They know he sucks. Crappy wrestler and crappy performer. That’s why John Cena always gets “boos” everytime you see him on camera.

There were no one time only appearances by any past superstars. No Rock, No Stone Cold, No Hulk Hogan. No legends from the past. Mick Foley did make a brief backstage appearance with Snoop Dogg though, that was it.

The only thing I didn’t like about tonight’s Wrestlemania was when Triple H gave John Cena the crossface aka “The Crippler Crossface” Chris Benoit’s signature move. Ok, time out WWE, if you were going to ban everything that had something to do with Chris Benoit in WWE, that means banning the crossface too. Other wrestlers doing the crossface will just brings back memories to Benoit. We’re trying to forget that guy, Benoit was a real life murderer and an evil psychopath.

But other than that, Wrestlemania 24 was good tonight. It is improving. Great job WWE. Two thumbs up!

Cool Video: Floyd Mayweather vs. Big Show animated fight…

Remember the Rocky Marciano vs. Muhammad Ali and the “Rocky vs. Mason Dixon” in “Rocky Balboa” film, computer fights?

Well the WWE decided to do something similar on Big Show vs. Floyd Mayweather, do you think Floyd Mayweather will wrestle against Big Show like this?

This match was played on WWE RAW vs. SD Game 2008 for the Playstation. Enjoy it here…it is on the official WWE youtube page by the way…

Thought: My final “Wrestlemania 24” predictions…

Look like the Wresstlemania 24 card is finished announcing to the public. Wrestlemania is this Sunday on PPV at 7:00 p.m. It will happen at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

Here is my predictions with the winners and I’ll explain why too…

Bunny Mania Lumberjack Match: Ashley & Maria vs. The Glamazon & Melina

Winner: Ashley & Maria
Reason: Maria is on the cover of Playboy. The Bunny Mania match is to help promote it, with Snoop Dogg being part of this match, you know Santino Marella will interfere this match to try to ruin the whole thing. Snoop Dogg will get into a little action by kicking Santino’s ass all over the Citrus Bowl stadium while Maria & Ashley pick up the win.

Belfast Brawl: Finlay vs. JBL

Winner: JBL

Reason: Finlay and JBL will not fight alone in this entire match. JBL will obviously get some help by Mr. McMahon, maybe an interference by Hornswoggle too. JBL will win no matter what happens ’cause this will be JBL’s chance to reveal the proof that Hornswoggle is not really Mr. McMahon’s bastard son. Plus, it will be JBL’s chance to show that he is a “wrestling god”.

24 Man Battle Royal: WWE has kept the announced wrestlers in this match under wraps ’cause I assume they are a making a number of 1 time only surprise wrestler appearances in this match such as: Mick Foley, The Rock, Roddy Rowdy Piper, Jimmy Snuka, etc. The winner of this match gets a shot at the ECW title.

Winner: The Great Khali

Reason: The WWE has been pushing the Great Khali and the character has been getting a lot of buzz as of late. Kane will not win this one ’cause he’ll get distracted by baseball legend, Pete Rose once again.

Money in the Bank Ladder Match: John Morrison vs. CM Punk vs. Carlito vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. MVP vs. Chris Jericho

Winner: Mr. Kennedy

Reason: Mr. Kennedy is getting a huge WWE title run in the future. The winner of this match you must climb the ladder to get the briefcase. The winner of the briefcase you get to cash in at any title match in the future. They were going to give Mr. Kennedy the title last year but Kennedy got injured and had  to take a hiatus from WWE, so that’s why the title went to Randy Orton instead.

Career Threatening Match: Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels HBK

Winner: Shawn Michaels

Reason: HBK will bring out his Mr. Wrestlemania again. There is no way Ric Flair will win this one. HBK maybe getting a heel turn soon so WM-24 will be a great chance for him to get that heel turn. This match is gonna be a great one and I can’t wait to see it. It’s one of the matches I look forward to seeing the most.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs. Big Show: Look like this won’t be a special kind of match at all, just a regular wrestling match, yes indeed.

Winner: The Big Show

Reason: Floyd Mayweather won’t wrestle at all. Mayweather will probably get help by Rey Mysterio. So it will be just Big Show vs. Rey Mysterio throughout most of it. I will say Big Show will pick up the win just to get his revenge on the broken nose incident when he just first returned. Shane McMahon might interfere this match a little too so he can do his “high flying” off the ring post jump he always does.

Smackdown vs. Raw match: Batista vs. Umaga

Winner: Batista

Reason: Simply because Dave Batista is bigger and quicker than Umaga is. This shall be a quick match that won’t last long.

World Heavyweight Champion (Smackdown belt): Edge vs. The Undertaker

Winner: The Undertaker

Reason: Easy, the Undertaker never lost a Wrestlemania and never will lose. Undertaker will have the next Heavyweight champ for Smackdown.

Triple Threat Match for the WWE Champ (RAW belt): John Cena vs. Triple H v s. Randy Orton

Winner: Either Triple H or who ever won “The Money in the Bank Ladder” Match (Mr. Kennedy)

Reason: I think Triple H will win the match first, then after thinking that he wins, the match continues after someone cashes in “The Money in the Bank” briefcase. Mr. Kennedy just might pick up the win and Kennedy could become the next champ at WM-24.

That’s all. We’ll see on Monday to see if I got any of my predictions right! Enjoy.
