Hi guys, with Wrestlemania 30 just a few weeks away, I’ve returned to Wrestling Rambles to give you, the readers, a fantasy Wrestlemania card which will be made up from some the greatest matches from the first 29 Wrestlemanias. I’ve made up a few rules for this so here they are: (1) it has to be an 8 match card,(2) no wrestler can appear more than once, and (3) there has to be a Divas match. Ok then let’s get started.
Bret Hart v Owen Hart Wrestlemania 10
This encounter is considered one of the best if not the best Wrestlemania opening match ever. Owen Hart was jealous of Bret’s success for years and decided to challenged him to a match at Wrestlemania. Bret refused for weeks but eventually he accepted. Bret dominated the opening exchanges before Owen gained the upper hand. Both men would go close to gaining victory with several near falls. Finally after 20 gruelling minutes of exciting back and forth action, Owen pinned Bret after the latter attempted a victory roll. Read more
The WWE has finally broken their silence on the CM Punk situation live on RAW. We saw last Monday the show start off with CM Punk’s music hit only to have Paul Heyman appear and deliver a great promo on how it was the fans fault Punk is gone. According to internet rumors and dirt sheets it seems this was the WWE’s sendoff without burying Punk. So the main question has to be: Is CM Punk done with pro wrestling? Read more
Why the Attitude Era was so special
By Kyle Grappone
(@KGrapper22 / @WCWToday)
Every Monday Night millions watch RAW and share the experience with thousands on Social Media. Never does a Monday go by when someone isn’t clamoring for the “Attitude Era”. The attitude era will most likely never come back and the reasons have been well documented. It was special because it was new and unpredictable, another statement that has been well documented. Yet, I believe there is a rare thought of reason why so many found that era so special. It also contributes to why most of us have such a tough time enjoying today’s product. That reason is your age.
When the attitude era was in full swing I was 11-12 years old. I can’t remember when I became wise to how things worked in the wrestling world but one thing I know for sure is I didn’t know nearly as much as I do now. I also hadn’t seen enough wrestling to notice any patterns or see any recycled storylines. I never had any idea who was going to win, and Read more
Monday Night Raw
March 3, 2014
We head right into the Allstate Arena in the Second City, starting what could be an epic night. We have an awesome rematch from the Elimination Chamber. Daniel Bryan faces Batista tonight! And right out of the gate Living Colour starts blasting. We see no one and the CM Punk chants start. Out comes…PAUL HEYMAN? Oh shit, it’s going to be one of those nights. Obviously WWE is trying hijack the hijacking crowd. Read more
I just got back from WWE Monday Night RAW from the Allstate Arena in Chicago. I’m going to try to make this quick. The best way to do this I think is by briefly discussing each part of the show.
Tonight is Monday Night Raw, a show wrestling fans around the world look forward to each week. Raw, being the flagship show of the WWE, usually has all it’s big moments. But what exactly can we be looking forward to? This week, we’ve got rumors of “The Best in the World,” a movement to take over the show, and a rematch from Elimination Chamber. Tonight is the Night.
We’re up to number 12 in the SmackDown Countdown this week; a countdown of my top 15 moments in the almost 15 year history of WWE’s Friday Night show. This weeks edition goes slightly against the grain though. This week I’ll be reviewing the WWE Tag Team Championship tournament which took place in 2002 to crown the first ever WWE Tag Team Champions for the SmackDown brand. The reason that it goes slightly against the grain is because the tournament final didn’t take place on an episode of SmackDown, but at the No Mercy pay-per-view. Read more
Fourth column of our annual Rambling Road To WrestleMania series…
Hail The UNDERTAKER! : The Deadman
The Deadman resurfaced this past Monday night on Raw, and made it obvious who his next victim will be. Paul Heyman guy, Mr Eat Sleep Conquer Repeat, (Are you serious? this guy sleeps before he conquers. Not sure if this is totally badass or just plain stupid), The Beast incarnate… Fuck it Undertaker triumphs. This is Undertaker’s second Wrestlemania match after the classic four year saga featuring Shawn Micheals and Triple H. And not since Batista, has The Undertaker already looked like the obvious victor. Yes, I am stating that Edge and CM Punk had greater chances at finishing the streak.
“I honestly think that you are so good (different) at how you approach columns. I know some people take compliments lightly and such, but honestly, you should be a very proud man. Boatloads of people including me, read your columns ALL THE TIME. Me personally, I wake up every morning, and before I go to school, I read your column (I’m 16). Also, your consistency with your columns is amazing, just from reading them so much, I almost feel like I know your thought process (not that I do). So with all of that out of the way, thank you.”
