  1. Holy s***, that was f***ing awesome.


    Screw 1992, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2007, and every other great Rumble event.


    This, has been,




    I was planning to come on here and say how much I marked for:


    -- The great fans

    -- The great matches

    -- The new crowd announcer guy making everything seem like a legit big event

    -- The stage/set area

    -- The fantastic video packages

    -- Santino being awesome

    -- The boxing-style title match announcements

    -- Michael Buffer

    -- Last year's final two being this year's #1 and #2

    -- Fatboy Piper and Oldman Snuka

    -- The great use of Morrison, Taker, Michaels, etc

    -- The great reactions for Kennedy, Hornswoggle, and yes, even CM Punk


    And I was all set to call this the best Rumble event ever.


    And then just when you thought it could get no better,




    I'll admit it - I marked like a little girl. And then he went and won. Totally leftfield and exactly what the Royal Rumble is all about. Unpredictable, and the crowd went INSANE for him. Ok, the boos were there for the punches, but that's just part of the fun. The crowd knows their role and popped like little marks when he came out and eliminated HHH.



    WWE, you have officially reinvented my love for professional wrestling. I absolutely love you. And Cena, I've f**king missed you.


  2. From the Observer

    ROH house show report 1-26 Chicago


    1) Austin Aries & Bryan Danielson defeat Erick Stevens & Jay Briscoe in 16 minutes to advance to the Ultimate Endurance tag title match. Good match with decent comedy stemming from Aries & Danielson deciding to work together as a team and doing old-school moves like a double hip toss and a boot in the corner. Danielson gets the win with a small package.

    2) Shane Hagadorn defeats Pelle Primeau in 5 minutes with brass knuckles.

    3) Chris Hero & Sara Del Rey defeat “Sugarfoot” Alex Payne & Kyle Durden to retain the World Intergender Tag Team Championships. Sweet & Sour claimed that Sugarfoot counts as a woman.

    4) Chris Hero & Sara Del Rey defeat Jigsaw & Daizee Haze. The titles were not on the line because Jigsaw & Daizee are not in the top ten international intergender tag team rankings. Decent match with Hero knocking Daizee out (but not for real) mid-match with a stiff elbow.

    5) Claudio Castagnoli vs. El Generico goes to a 20-minute draw. “Real good” match with a lot of near falls and big moves in the last five minutes, including Claudio attempting a super Ricola Bomb, Generico attempting to reverse it into a hurricanrana, and Claudio rolling all the way through on the way down. Claudio had Generico in the Neutralizer as time expired.

    6) Mark Briscoe defeats Joey Matthews Good 16-minute match with Matthews doing a lot of stalling and heel tactics. Age of the Fall accompanied Matthews and Jimmy Jacobs re-iterated that Aries has a standing offer to join them.

    Intermission - It was announced that Kota Ibushi is the Japanese star hinted at in this week’s News Wire, and he’ll be on the next Chicago Ridge show on April 19.

    7) Delirious defeats Adam Pearce in a dog collar match. Delirious wins in 20 minutes with a splash through a table. Good brawl.

    World Tag Team Title Ultimate Endurance Match - ROH World Tag Team Champions Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black with Lacey vs. Bryan Danielson & Austin Aries vs. Davey Richards & Rocky Romero vs. BJ Whitmer & Brent Albright.

    8 - Davey Richards & Rocky Romero win the World Tag Team Championships in an Ultimate Endurance Match In the first fall, Richards pins Black to guarantee new champions. In the second, Whitmer taps out to a triangle by Danielson. Richards rolls up Aries to win the titles and cap off an awesome final few minutes.

    9) Nigel McGuinness defeats Roderick Strong to retain the ROH World Championship in 27 minutes with the Jawbreaker Lariat. “Bad-ass match.”


    New champions already.

  3. The seeds were planted for the McMahon/Finlay conflict, which I am sure will lead to both McMahon v Horny and McMahon v Finlay. A week ago I would have put money on McMahon v Horny at Wrestlemania, but now I'm thinking he could fight Finlay instead. Either way, at least its going somewhere now.

    If they do the match, and I'm still kinda doubtful they will, it'll probably end up being an angle where Hornswoggle has to choose; his father or Finlay, which would be fine with me since Finlay's Finlay and can make anything work because he's great.
