Hello again guys!
It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post, but here I am. Back!
I intended to do a WrestleMania review post the week after the big event, but my laptop decided it didn’t want to co-operate and died. Alas, my laptop is now fixed, and I thought I’d do a little round up of the major talking points of the last couple of weeks.
Firstly, WrestleMania was amazing! If you only watched The End of an Era match, The Rock vs John Cena and CM Punk vs Chris Jericho. The rest was very forgettable and the Daniel Bryan screw-over seemed to anger every single WWE fan on Twitter the night of WrestleMania.
The night after WrestleMania we saw the return of Brock Lesnar (OMG!), the break-out of Daniel Bryan’s signature YES! chants, a mexican version of said chant (SI!), Lord Tensai’s debut and Alberto Del Rio returning too. The RAW after WrestleMania was, in summary, awesome. The crowd were amazing, adding an electric atmosphere to the great goings on inside the ring and Brock Lesnar’s return and subsequent F-5 to John Cena just topped off the night.
The other big talking point in WWE recently has been the Dean Ambrose/Mick Foley social media/online storyline. For those of you that don’t know Dean Ambrose verbally attacked Mick Foley over the WrestleMania weekend, which was of course caught on video. Mick Foley and Dean Ambrose have since been posting indirect tweets about one another which has certainly intrigued a lot of people, myself included. WrestlingInc.com states that “the entire thing was planned and WWE writer Ed Koskey was there taking notes and watching the whole thing.
I for one am certainly interested in the feud that could potentially come off from these two on TV. Mick Foley is obviously a legend of wrestling and he has played crucial roles in the careers of big names such as Edge and Randy Orton, and it seems the talented indy superstar turned FCW phenomenon will be the next on the list to work with the Hardcore Legend.
I haven’t been watching TNA recently, but I did just watch The Motor City Machine Guns’ return to PPV at Lockdown. The Machine Guns (MMG) looked great, especially Chris Sabin after being out for such a long time with a torn ACL and MCL. The match was OK, but seemed to just falter towards the finish. The finish to the match was a very good spectacle, however, with Samoa Joe (with Chris Sabin of MMG on his back) delivering a senton splash to Sabin’s prone tag team partner Alex Shelley followed by Joe and Magnus’ finishing move for the win.
That’s all for my round-up today. Expect more posts over the coming weeks now that my technology problems are hopefully a thing of the past.
