Didn't see Mania.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Not many surprises, though most people said Punk vs Taker was a classic.

Great to see The Shield win. That's three or four times they have lined up against a team of former world champs and won, cleanly. Who would have thought a year ago that Dean Ambrose would pin 9 time world champ Randy Orton cleanly at Wrestlemania? So they are building up people and trying to give them traction.


On to RAW. Seriously, one of the best shows ever, largely because of the awesome crowd. Massive Brit contingent there, clearly just fucking about.

Spoilers!

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
The crowd singing the Fandango theme for the whole show after he wrestled was hilarious. I hope that catches on.

Great to see the reaction Daniel Bryan got. The crowd adored him.

Dolph Ziggler's reaction was incredible. Great cash in, and he's so awesome.

Loved how nobody really gave a shit about Orton vs Sheamus.

Miz vs Barrett. I don't have a problem with a short title reign. Miz is more established, and they're trying to get Barrett raised up a bit. I like it when it seems like either person could win a match. Seems like a proper rivalry (though I don't think they gel well in the ring; Miz works best with Sports Entertainment showmen like Cena, Barrett works best in a physical brawl).

No Cesaro or Punk. Boo! Though the crowd might have just exploded for them.


So much fun, was Raw.

Fair play to the WWE...or is it another Jerry Lawler vs Andy Kauffman 'bit'?


Finally got to see the clip. That was brilliant. Perfectly done.

The 'Anti Immigrant' story line has continued this week with Zeb Colter of the WWE calling out John Oliver as an Immigrant Rat taking an American's job (he's currently the temporary host of 'The Daily Show' while John Stewart directs a film).

Below is Oliver's response...

That's pretty amazing. More for the commentary than the Oliver promo, but wow. Good segment.

They probably contractually can't. Ego stuff. Sorry, branding. ;)

That's what led to 'The Chris Moyles Breakfast Show, presented by Scott Mills', whenever the bully boy from Rothwelll went on his hols.

Brilliant excerpt of George Steele's book. I think I'm going to buy that.

I think I missed most of George Steeles time in the WWF because I started watching at Wrestlemania 6, but that book looks like it could be interesting.

I read Classy Freddie Blassie's book around the time of his death again, I didn't know much about his career but it was brilliant.

I fully recommend watching the Scott Hall RFvideo shoot interview. He comes across as a very nice man. Hope he's able to overcome his demons before they kill him off.

On a whim, I watched the Bret Hart 'documentary' on Netflix a week or so back. Very strange it is. Oddly forced. I couldn't shake the feeling that there's a whole other layer to the wrestling world that sits between the kayfabe and the actual reality. Either that, or the wrestlers themselves have no idea what's real or fake.

I'm halfway through Hart's book now and he really does think that he's the best there was etc. His account of the Wembley Summerslam match with Davey Boy is not very accurate.

Like I said: Odd.

If you enjoyed that, try the exceptional Beyond the Mat. Both came out around the same time and had actually became enmeshed in my memory until I rewatched them a couple of year sago.

Well Sting has been putting out feelers for the last few months after his cheques started coming in late. Rumours swirling it'd be for him vs Taker at the next Mania. He might've left it a bit late for maximum sponds. RVD seems to have timed his departure perfectly.

They've fired Tara to save money and their roster on the official website is woefully small.

To be honest, I'm surprised that they've gone for this long. Also, Sting vs The Undertaker will be excellent right up until the bell rings to start the match.

I reckon they ought to hire Warrior after his recent WWE14 advert and reform The Bladerunners.

Pritchard and D-Lo went yesterday. Pritchard might've gone because he failed to notice Doc's contract had expired. Can't see Wee Wee being too keen to rehire Festus, though.

Weeeee has a stacked enough roster as it is. Can only see a couple of TNA folk who might get much of a run there.
